Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I've got a love-hate relationship with messages. On one hand when I
get a message my brain squirts a bit of happy chemicals, because
"Hey, you got a message!" On the other hand a lot of the messages I
get are "Hey :)" I'm never sure what to do with "Hey." I'm not one
for small-talk, it makes me feel like a raisin. To me, this is like
someone walking up to me on the street and handing me a marble.
It's nice, but really what ought I do with this marble? Do we talk
about colours? If you read the top portion of the profile you'd
know that we're probably not going to meet up so we might as well
indulge in words.
I'm very interested in the personality constructs people leave
around this website, how everyone advertises themselves, either by
seductive pictures or well written profiles. In general pictures
seem to win out in garnering views every time, though I've written
some vitriolic shit on this website that was a complete turn-off
for most, if not all, people. Nobody wants acid spit into their
mind as a first impression, note taken. Then again some days I just
want to get up on my milk-crate and yell angry bullshit for
I enjoy when people can hold a conversation through text. If you
can do that, chances are that you can talk, and if you can talk I
really don't have many worries about us getting along. OKCupid is a
great crucifier for people that like to talk about other people, we
have no friends in common, who you gonna gossip about? I suspect
that really cuts down on drama. Yeah, we're left with ideas, the
vegetables of human interaction, and in *shudder* text at that,
metaphorically this is eating a cardboard cut-out of broccoli in
many a mind.
I'm always interested in ethics, bioethics or otherwise. It's good
fun to talk about how "other" some other being must be in order for
it to be okay to eat. If you get me drunk every other word can
become "being" because I read too much of that stuff. Ethics can
include feminism, masturbation, animal cruelty, plants, really
anything that does... things.
In the concrete realm I enjoy very meticulous, individual
endeavours. Painting, brooding, coding, usually I don't want to
talk about this stuff, I've got a rubber duck for that. Talking
about hobbies is tough, because the fun is actually doing the
hobby. However you should definitely message me if you exist on
steam or you can code and have ideas for said code.
And if you made it this far you get a goddamn cookie for reading my
