OKCupid, 3/13/14: 27yo Dude from Long Island
His picture shows muscles bulging through a tank top, holding a dog
Dude: Ummm, u wanna blow me?
Me: Ummm, no.
Dude: Lol. Ok just figured I’d giv u the chance. I’m a nice guy like that
Me: Does that line ever actually work? Nothing about it says “nice guy” even to a slut
Dude: Lol, of course it does. U girls r real “progressive” and “independent” these days
Really, ladies? Really? Who among you is rewarding this guy’s poor pick-up etiquette? I have no qualms against meeting people for casual sex off dating sites, but not based on lines such as this. *sigh*
Once upon a time, 13 years ago, I became involved with an online community called everything2.com, or e2 for short.
It was a pre-wikipedia user edited collection of posts. It is still alive! e People on this website are called noders, and we get to vote on each others writeups. I noticed the reddit system is rather similar. hmmm..
We wrote things that were factual, humorous, a combo of both, fiction. We commented on posts in a passive-aggressive way making up awesome nodeshell titles. We had crazy parties and meetups and munches. We dated, married, had little noder babies. We clashed cultures and countries.
Amazingly, I still have some of those noders in my life today. I feel like they don’t make online communities like they used to!
My writeups can be found here:
My most popular writeup of all time was a post I did describing the first time I got fisted. Hm, I don’t think I’ve added a sexuality page to this blog yet. 🙂
