AD: i know i've emailed you a coupla times, but you seem right interesting so I can be a little persistant.
AD: but i digress. you do the library thing? that is awesome. Something I have considered over the years.
AD: if for nothing more than to always have topics to expound upon at any given moment.
AD: i found myself reading about the use of the fruitfly in most scientific experiments and testing because their DNA structure apparently closely matches that of the human race. who knew? haha
AD: some people call it minutiae. I call it a repository of awesome.
AD: as an aside, this is not the best avenue of conversation, okcupid that is. I would really enjoy talking to you sometime soon for certain. :)
Mia: You're unusually persistent - most guys would have given up when i said you're too young. i'm curious - any reason why?
Puppy: Not at all, was just sharing some info about myself. As for not giving up, I like being persistent with most things in life. If I gave up everytime somebody told me no I would be nothing. My will is strong.
M: Tell you what - tell me three things about yourself that may actually interest me and we'll see if we keep talking
P: Fair enough. 1. I don't just look for physical things in a potential girl friend. I must be attracted to her but I also have to find her attractive personality wise. I want someone that can be themselves around me and enjoy my company even if we are only hanging out. 2. I scored the highest out of any soldier in the state of kentucky in 2009 on the Army Physical Fitness Test with a score of 93 pushups, 123 situps (both in 2 mins) and a 12:44 2 mile run. They created an award just for me. 3. I'm a fun guy. I like to work out, watch movies/tv, play sports, read books, sing(to myself) dance and go to the beach. I used to read a lot more than I do now but I still enjoy it from time to time. I'm looking for a great girl to spend time with. and there you have it
M: Okay, i'm going to play the older woman card and offer some advice - stop trying so hard
P: What do you mean?
M: I'm being nice and assuming you're not but those three things range from vague generalized cliches to only showing that you're a self-centered egomaniac
P: It's not that I'm stuck up. I just thought those were some things that were interesting about me. I could be wrong
M: Not stuck up per say - more like jackass
P: You definitely tell it like it is
M: I dislike bullshit. you want someone that can "enjoy your company"... really?
P: Yeah. Does that sound so fake?
M: Aaahh, wanting a girl that will enjoy your company sounds egotistical. It sounds like you want someone to adore you
P: That's an interesting take on it. Well I do want someone to like me. They don't have to kiss my feet and worship the ground I walk on but a little affection might be nice no?
M: No - you literally said "I want someone that can enjoy my company." Wanting someone to like you is one thing.
P: I thought that went hand in hand with "enjoying someones company"
M: Someone who's company you can enjoy is sweet. Wanting someone to enjoy yours screams out of control ego
P: Well that's not how I meant it honestly. I can see how you got that from what I said though.
M: #2 - never mention that you're the best anything when you first meet someone, it will always sound arrogant. Mentioning the award pushes it over the top
P: I didn't say the whole world you know, just the state of kentucky.
M: still counts. If they ask, yes. Otherwise, fake modesty and say you were in the top 5%
P: Usually when I talk to girls on here I don't tell them my laundry list of awards you know. I was just trying to think of things that make me interesting. Since that was your prompt
M: You went too general. Nothing you said tells me anything about you
P: Hmmm, the real me
M: Short, specific facts
P: I am a history major, not beccause I want to be a teacher, but because I enjoy ancient history such as greek and roman history.
M: Sooooooo much better
Explaining Mark is complicated. One part is that there is just so much. Six years worth of just shit that happened. Another part is the mess that you create just by growing up. The third part I’m still figuring out. I don’t know why I wore a blindfold through most of our relationship. Lack of self awareness, lack of awareness where he was concerned, just bouncing through years...
Around the Corner
Whether it seems clique or not, the direction of your life can change in only a few seconds. One of the things that plagues me about my relationship with Mark is that for the longest time I thought I was happy. I thought we had a good relationship. I was even so boldly naive that I felt smug that I had him and was somewhat settled while all my friends dated and had their heart’s broken. ...
D: Who do you think would win in a fight between a Grilled Cheese Sandwich and a Taco?
M: Hard shell or soft taco?
D: A mix of the two with cheese holding them together. I would like to add that although this adds the benefit of more protection for the taco, grilled cheese never goes to a fight without a knife.
M: Who knew grilled cheese was so badass? I was going to say taco since it does have body armor but now I'm going with grilled cheese. I don't think taco can take the heat. (Lame pun intended)
Sidenote - Jujubes? Really? You are aware they're the reject Halloween candy, right? If you want to trade for the full sized candy bar, you have to take the jujubes too. They're the ugly daughter and the full size candy bar is the castle.
D: Jujubes are awesome! Ugly daughter, really? How can you not like them. But I am glad you stay up to par on the day to day exchange rates of Halloween candy.
M: You have to stay up on candy exchange rates if you ever want to get anything good.
Although I love living alone and love being single, there are moments when I wish there was a significant other living with me. Most of the time it’s on lazy afternoons when there’s nothing to do and it’s just awful enough outside that a day in bed couldn’t be frowned upon. That’s not to imply there’s ever a day in bed that could be frowned upon. There are...
M: Any chance you have a night free this week?
Artist: How about Thursday night, madam?
M: Thursday is good. I get of work at 5.
A: Alright. Anything in mind?
M: Nothing whatsoever. I'm happy with takeout and a movie at my place or whatever you want to come up with.
A: I like your plan. That sounds fun.
M: Good. Want to decide on the details later?
A: Most certainly.
letmedowneasyxo: is that post about carding someone a guy off okcupid? if so, website is AWESOME i met the most incredible man there. Yeah, it is. I’m glad someone has done well. As evidence shows, I’ve mostly gotten creepy and weird messages. It hasn’t been a horrible experience so far but I wouldn’t say I’m winning. Any tips since you’ve obviously...
Cute or lame? I’ve been worn down - I can’t decide.
