So if your rough version of how this okc dating thing goes is
something like: after initial message we briefly correspond to get
a sense of each other i.e. make a determination over whether the
other person appears batshit crazy via IM or messaging, over the
course of what should probably be no more than a few days (not
weeks, months, umm years). Then we make a plan to get together and
grab a drink in the near future i.e. in the next week or so (not
sometime vaguely on the horizon, if you're so busy, why are you
wasting time talking to strange guys on the internet???). After
adhering (not flaking) to aformentioned plan, if we like each other
we repeat from the previous step (making a plan to get together in
the near future): if one of us does not, and the other inquires
about seeing each other further, the disinterested party politely
yet in a straightforward fashion makes clear their lack of
interest, while the still-interested party thanks them for being
clear, disengages, and both people move on with their lives...umm
so concludes our hypthothetical dating scenario, I hope it was as
fun for you as it was for me.
On a hipster scale of 1-10 (10 being you're a member of an indie
rock group and stole my grandmother's glasses), you are confident
that you do not exceed a 6.
..Also since I don't know where else to put this, quite a while
back I was in the military. This is not a major or defining aspect
of my life as currently lived, but for a small, but apparently not
insignificant number of the "liberal-minded" ladies on here, this
is a dealbreaker sort of thing that should be mentioned up front.
So if you think that anyone who has ever put on a uniform is a
bloodthirsty lunatic, or has PTSD, or is a right-wing
crypto-fascist...umm I would hate to waste your time, although I'm
sure you are an awesome person.
...sorry if this all sounds jaded, but in my experience it is
easier to figure out what won't work on here than what will
(update: Ironically putting all in all these caveats has not really
mitigated the issues touched upon here, oh well). If you are
looking for a no bs guy, with a lot of sarcasm, who knows about
(some) stuff and has well defined triceps, give me a shout...or at
least respond to my message.
