Literally the most handsome man in the world has asked me out for a drink and agreed to meet "at a mutually inconvenient location" so both of us have to travel, which was my secret one-night-stand detector. It feels like it's a trap... he even has good taste in music. Like, obscure bands that I thought no one else had heard of. I won points for knowing who Micachu were, so I'm assuming the date was on that basis alone.

Decided to bit the bullet and made an OkC profile last night. Woke up to a lovely message about how this guys last roommate was vegan and whenever he wanted a hamburger he's just eat a ton of fries and OMG aren't vegans hysterical?!?!

You're hilarious dude, seriously, I've never heard that one before *eyeroll*

Tonight's I have my date with the guy who had to cancel last week. I am so forking nervous, I left work early just to chill out a bit. This could also probably go in the crush thread because I'm totally digging this guy. Of course everything could be totally different in person and I accept that, but something about him feels different from the others.

And my apologies Mars, but I'll have to decline on this one ;)

And this is very off topic but I think that was my first time testing the censors and it made me giddy. There's still so much for me to learn on this site, such as, why all the questions about tater tots?

OKC is so full of total losers. But I'd say between 5-10% is actually decent people! At least, that's been my experience. Found my current BF on OKC and he is The Best. He met some real crazies through OKC too, just hang in there and you'll find someone who will, at the very least, be a nice person to hang out with, if not your One True Love.

Ha, for real. And thanks! I definitely wasn't expecting to find someone right off the bat or anything, but I hadn't even finished making my profile! I figured this crepe wouldn't start till I'd at least actually filled it out haha.

Nope. Vegan bashing on OKC is just a gift that keeps on giving. (I received this gem today: "No no no no no! Go off your vegan diet. You're a carnivore, darnit!")

I, on the other hand, have only been told "That's so cool!". Which it is. Because we are.

Holy crepe, I'm so glad this hasn't happened! I get a lot of "that's cool," or "I could never do that," and one "Is it a dealbreaker if your partner isn't vegetarian?" I didn't respond to that one because it was the only sentence in a first message and hey now, slow your roll guy.

"I see you're into feminism

What are the chances you're one of the few non-misguided young feminists who don't think feminism is about doing what you want without fear of consequence"
--First message from some dude (in the chat function, no less)

Usually I ignore douchey messages but holy shiitake.

Wow, what a bell end. Do some people not understand that getting a date usually involves making someone actually want to be in the same room as you?

I have a date-like-thing tonight. And I'm actually going and it's not, as far as I can tell, getting cancelled! I checked with him that it was still on a couple of days ago and he checked with me just now, so it appears we're both dorkily worried it won't happen.

Tonigth I have a date with a dude from OKC and I'm a little...not excited about it. But it'll get me out and about, which is what I've been needing I think. He's so not my type though

I really wish 20-year olds would stop sending me "u into younger guys?" messages. Admittedly it does stroke my ego a little. But dude, I could LITERALLY be your mom. It's not gonna happen.

My latest lovely message is, "Hey! I'm building a gang of Kung fu fighting girls. Do you know any martial arts?"


Go away. Now.

See I'd probably reply to that. More interesting than 'hi' and nothing else, which I get a lot.

I've still not had ANY MESSAGES on OKC. Seriously, only one person ever messaged me since I started back up my account and that was right away, and he was in California. Since then, a big zip.

The only message I got so far was from some one who'd like to get to know me and chat with me through Skype.

I don't have skype so I mailed her back with some info about myself and said I don't have skype but could do fb chat or the chat function of the dating site.

Her reply:
"Thank you for your email, I got it and I am pleased to read from you.

I am excited you have got no problem communicating in English as I feared this would be a problem initially. Well, telling you a little about myself now, I am Cristiana and I am 40 years old(of course I will be 41 years old later this year). I am a widow and I have got a on of 8 years old(who will also be 9 years old later this year).

I am a trader and I trade in the business of farm produce(palm oil). I buy this product from such country as Malaysia and I import to the Netherlands to sell and to make maximum profit return from doing so.

I am hoping to meet a credible man who knows what happiness is all about in a relationship and life in general. Someone who is sure of what he is looking for and who wants to make happiness a priority in his relationship.

Lastly, it is a shame you do not have Skype right now as I do not have facebook either. I do not use it. So I hope you will be able to deal with the problem with installing Skype on your computer and we can consequently make use of the service to chat and get to know more of each other. We could also make use of MSN messenger if that's what you have got. Please, let me know......

I wish you a very good day, I am looking forward to your response."

I found it weird that some one replies to an almost empty profile, but perhaps some people do that. The palm oil however made me think and turned into a red flag. So I googled a bit and found out that it can be part of a scam to contact people on dating sites and lure them into chatting through skype.
So I contacted the management of the dating site and after two emails they told me they removed her as "she" had sent out several of the same messages on the same day.
