I feel a little better after last night's panic attack! Thankfully I only disabled my profile and even almost two years later it retained all my stuff (including my ridiculously outdated photos) so I only had to do updates and not start over from scratch.

I found a handful of decent seeming dudes who seem to have a good sense of humor and creativity and I think only one of them is not veg*n. One of them seemed familiar (I think he was on OKC when I was last on, too), but had a new photo of him in costume as Mike the one-armed man from Twin Peaks- immediately saved to favorites! So I have my "hand" of playing cards that I can message when I'm feeling up to it. I just got overwhelmed there for a while- I forgot how totally intimidating the sheer number of people to wade through is!

84% "match" with the guy whose avatar pic is him holding a leash, attached to a leather minidress-clad woman on all fours.

Yep, 84%.

I'm sad PPK :( I can't seem to connect with any queer women, and the men who message me are creepy or weirdly non-talkative.

Looked at a profile last night where a guy put a link to a youtube performance of some of his stand-up comedy. Seems cool, so I check it out. It's pretty funny, but about three minutes in he starts talking about happy ending massages. Including doing the 'Asian lady' voice. Nnnnnope.

You could try hiding your profile from straight people - that's what I do :)

Last night I sat down and went through all my hundreds of questions on OKC, updating a few answers from two years ago that no longer apply or for which my opinion/situation has changed, and then refreshed and re-sorted my matches. I found a few more really promising dudes! I'm feeling a bit more optimistic now. I am meeting with the ex for the first time post-breakup to talk and exchange toothbrushes and pajamas and whatnot, so having a small hand of eligible bachelors to refer to before/after will be bolstering, hopefully.

On the bummer side of things, I got a message from a 56% match that was only his first name and phone number. I also got a message from a 27 year old who hasn't answered any Qs so is a 0% match, which made me feel like a sassy cougar even though I'm only 34. And my profile has twice been visited by the guy whose avatar is him and a woman wearing nothing but pasties and leather straps. I'm good, thanks dude.

I'm not sure if this is the right thread but does anyone have experience with just finding friends online? I mean I've found friends (and my boyfriend and my exgirlfriend) online but never on a website that was especially built for finding friends. I feel like if I used one of the ones where finding partners & friends is mixed people would still kind of think I was looking for more than just friends. Is that an unreasonable assumption?

Facebook. (seriously)

Sign up with a couple of vegan facebook pages and follow their posts to find out which vegans probably match your views the best. Friend those people and try to meet up with them at events like potlucks that are posted.

I would rather not register at facebook. I have a huge aversion to it. I've avoided it all these years and its popularity is slowly declining now anyway.

Thank you. :)

And re-reading what I wrote before, it sounds totally stuck up. I didnt mean it to come across like this.

I don't think it sounded stuck up, if you're on a dating site even if you are just looking for friends people will probably at least try to date you!

Rewarded myself for wrapping up loose ends with my ex by messaging two guys on my favorites list! I removed them from my favorites list after that so if they reply, I'll see their message, if not, oh well and no use obsessing.

I started a profile and I can't think of anything to say about myself and I am already like "DON'T LOOK AT ME" re:the people looking at my profile.
there's a live chat feature on okc?? and I didn't know and two dudes popped up chatting to me and I screamed and closed my computer so I guess what I am saying is: I do not know how to deal with attention from internet strangers.

but! I am finding there to be a lot of really endearing and sweet profiles of some of the folks who messaged me so far so thats sort of promising for the human spirit, y'know?

I just started a tinder account because it's quicker than okc. I got three matches. One I'm not all that attracted to, but I put like anyway because she seems cool and now we're a match so I don't know if I want to message her. The other one is alright, so I'll message her at some point. and the last one was my roommate, who convinced me to sign up haha

as soon as you fix the lack of topknot situation okc will automatically change us to a 100% match, I guarantee it
