Well, biology people should. I wonder if I should specify in my profile in case someone things its just a funny way to spell "fighter" and that's not good for pickups.

Also, still kind of annoyed that no one is messaging me. I messaged one person and they've messaged me back but that's not as fun as getting the first message. Boo!

Also, I have logged onto adam4adam again. I have received two messages but they were very booty call direct and to the point and... I don't know, I'm not feeling that from those types of guys right now.

Boo. Most of my first messages have been devoid of any grammar. Most of my good conversations have been started by me. I don't know if I've gotten any conversations to me first that seemed worth replying to. Well, maybe one.

I have the folllowing disclaimer:

Dearest gentlemen, please be aware that if you message me with anything along the lines of "hey sexy" or "you are hansome", I will not respond. If you would like a conversation, please start a conversation. If you want to flatter me, that's fine, but I won't respond.

I just don't like it! First impressions are important!

I had one guy start with "you are sexy" then reel it back, apologise and start a nice conversation. So, it works!

So I'm meeting someone for coffee next week and another guy has given me his number after a really nice long conversation about pokémon names and which minor celebrities we've seen. I don't think I want to use his number yet, but it was a nice compliment. I'll probably spend the day thinking of witty things to say to him because I'm sad and obsessive like that.


Mars, I'd message you!

I'm just gonna stowaway on your badass raft. I have to get in on that. I've been on OKC since February. In that time, there has been only one person I managed to exchange more than 2 messages with (we both felt we had no chemistry but we did become friends). damn, where are all the queers??
So today I just got a message from someone and got a little excited, but then I read her questions. She answered yes to "do you think women should be obligated to shave their legs?" and "would the world be a better place if people with low IQs weren't allowed to reproduce?" and she answered no to "do you think it's okay for a girl to discuss her sexual exploits?" and "Is abortion an option in the case of unwanted pregnancy?"
I don't even know how to respond.

You could outright ask her about her answers to those! I mean, it's not like you're trying to impress her at this point, so it might be kind of interesting for curiosity's sake. Like, I wonder how a queer person could really think those things!!! Crazy.

So, my ex definitely clicked "hide" after I accidentally clicked on her profile. However I'm not blocked but I think I don't show up in searches and she doesn't show up in mine. I actually answered more questions and somehow I went from like 81 to 93% match with her (because with my paid acct I can do that secretly). BLOODY hell. Hah, and now she won't know, but she doesn't want to. I guess I should stop checking. I really didn't expect it to jump to being one of my highest matches though :(

But the person I have gone on two dates with recently went down to 75%. The heck? Only thing I can think of is I changed some questions on drugs.

Awh man, a4a can be such a funny website. Here's the message I just got:

Spoiler: show
Well I will be forward with you as I would dearly love to eat your hairy asparagus and crotch and pits and see just what else you would do? My birthday is Monday want to be my present?


I mean, hey, sounds like a great time with the right person! Some 62 year old stranger, though... I'm not feelin' it! I hate the idea of nixxing someone because of their age, I find many older men attractive. I guess 62 might be pushing it a bit for me, though! Also I feel like since my break up I've become a lot more picky in who on this website I get good vibes from.

Mars, that is forking hilarious.

I am contemplating okc for a variety of reasons. It might be the low-stakes interaction I need to get me some dates. But then again I'm skeer'd and feel like, nope, no way.

Oh, Mars. That's amazing.

I have two pre-dates. Coffees? This is really unwise. One guy asked me if I was a big spoon or a little spoon, and I don't know if he's being cutesy or asking me about bum sex and I don't want to ask in case it makes me look like an idiot. People are confusing!

I'm guessing it's a bit of both! You could always answer to both versions of the question. Like, "If we're talking about A, then I'm B, if we're talking about C, then I'm D!"

I somehow found an answer that would fit for both, as well as a little joke about "forking".

Edit: in spoiler tags because it was massive.

The spoiler tags made it suspenseful!

I've got a conveserations that goes:

HIM: hello mate good morning how are you names BLAH from BLAH xx
ME: Hi Mel from Wales. I'm fine thanks, yourself?
HIM: Good mate thanks for reply u ok x

So, his response was to ask me how I was again. Also, his use of punctuation is distressing and he lives two hours away and he's too old for me and I'm not interested.

On the plus side, my upcoming date tomorrow to mostly do homeworky things has proposed that we hang out at Lowes in the patio furniture section, and use the free WiFi. So, that's funny.

And apparently wants to get takeout from Plant, the fanciest veg restaurant in town, somehow keep the fancy plating. To eat on patio furniture at Lowes. Well, she's funny and absurd, that's for sure.

I prefer to think he was so excited that you responded, he was telling you "you're okay in my book!" X=book, of course.

Sounds like a real winner! ::yawn::

OMG ppk. I'm having major conundrums!! I need your wise advice.

My sex drive is back with a fiery passion. But! Who to have sex with?! I used to enjoy the random hookups from a4a. They didn't make me that uncomfortable, I mean, it's two people getting into something with the same intention and sex is fun! But since my break up, I've felt really odd about the idea. Uncomfortable, nervous. I've met some really cool guys and had some good fun from a4a, why am I being like this? One guy I met through a4a is a pretty neat friend now.

On one hand... I could just try and wait for dating and having it happen normally. Honestly my hope is with regular 'maybe-there's-a-spark' type dating is to wait more like 3-5 dates this go around, rather than be a 1-2 like I normally am. But I feel like I am so revved up... I can't wait! So having randoms might be good to help calm that demon a bit for when I am real-dating. Right? Argh.
