Wow, she sounds like a treat! Maybe she thinks riling people up is a good start to a spicy relationship.

I don't understand why'd people would take the time to troll people on a dating site?

I don't know. Sometimes people will write that you shouldn't bother messaging them if all they have to say is "Hey, what's up?" So sometimes I'll lead off with that as a joke. I almost always write more after that and it's always sent to women I'm interested in. But it's probably not nearly as cute as I think it is.

I don't think so, I think it pay to be earnest on OKC because not everyone is into sarcasm or it will come off as a cheap joke as it's hard to infer intention at times over the internet.

A guy sent me a message that said "Just so you know, some men think short hair on girls is unattractive. :)" It's quite clear in my pictures that I'm a girl with short hair so I told him that was a pretty ridiculous message to send. He said "Oh, no, your hair isn't 'short,' your hair is cute. You don't look like a man." Uh, thanks guy?

I was dating a woman once who had the most beautiful long blond hair. Then she shaved it all off. Not like Mia Farrow in "Rosemary's Baby" but Natalie Portman in "V for Vendetta." At first I was kind of bummed about it. But I grew to think it was absolutely badass and hella sexy.

I once had an ex boyfriend tell me that he'd be very upset if I cut my hair. We broke up shortly after that (unrelated) and I totally went for a short hair cut.

Chiming in a bit late on this, but if I were fupa, the deal breaker would be does not ride a bike. Especially if you're broke and don't drive. How you gonna get around without a bike? How am I going to take you on any of my romantic ride a bike to (place) dates if you got no bike?

She lives in a neighborhood where there isn't much going and suggested the one bar over there that's a dumpy faux irish pub. I suggested a beer bar a few blocks over and she said she didn't want to go. I now realize it's because she didn't want to walk over there. I mean that makes her world incredibly small. so yeah if we went anywhere I'd have to drive and I make a point not to drive around my city because it's so small and it's quite wasteful.

It's not...I have a similar caveat (about sending a wink. God I forking hate winks) and when people send one then go "haha naw, just kidding" it's an immediate mark against them.

Does your city not have public transit? That must suck for her!

We have public transport but it's very expensive and not too helpful unless you need to get to a college. I don't know that I have too much sympathy for her.

As someone who's terrified of biking if there is a car anywhere nearby and doesn't drive, I can't imagine living somewhere without decent public transit. If I'm going someplace that's less than a 45 minute walk I just walk, though.

Well the thing is she was talking about her bike that she used to have in college in Minneapolis so she's not afraid to bike in traffic. She also flat out said she isn't really willing to walk to places that aren't in the immediate vicinity, like the beer bar I wanted to go to was maybe a 20-25 minute walk from her neighborhood. She does drive but refuses to learn to drive stick, so it all adds up to an air of laziness to me. That is why I don't have much sympathy. If she was afraid of biking and had to rely on public transportation I would feel for her but most things on the east side are within a 45 minute walk.

Fezza where you at! I saw something FB official! wheeeeee!

And its actually getting really good with my long-distanceish biology-permaculture lady. In the beginning I was a bit scared about her moving too fast and she put on the breaks and gave me some time and I'm really glad I eventually went camping with her and now...well, not trying to make far-off plans because I'm still working on being in the moment about it, not having expectations and such, but, yeah. I am all aflutter. I'm still weird about wanting to define it maybe? But does it really matter?

So maybe I'll be joining the "long distance relationship" thread some time soon.

Bwahahaaa! Yep, it's 7 weeks now and he raised the subject of facebook relationship status earlier. I hadn't thought about it really, any keen eyes would spot there was something going on by our photo linking, so wasn't really bothered about doing it. He decided he wouldn't do it, if I wasn't really into it so I said "sod it, I'm changing it when I get home". He had his changed by the time I was home, hehe!

Hey my vegan peeps. I searched for this question but found only one reference in this thread.
...Will you date someone who lists fishing/hunting as an interest in their profile? I have been telling people who list one or both as an interest that I'm not interested, but now I'm second-guessing myself. Your thoughts are welcome.

I wouldn't have dated a hunter as a non-vegan. If you aren't comfortable with it, no reason to try to force it.

I wouldn't be able to. I think it's totally valid for those things to be dealbreakers.

P.S. Yayyy Fezza!
