How proofreading is such a lost art. Case in point... I was reading
a profile. In the section "I‘m really good at" it read "jack off
all trades". Another profile stated he was "an intelligent,
interesting and funny woman".
Does anyone give any thought to what their profile pictures say
ie: does it look like you are standing next to a jail cell, wearing
an orange or black and white striped shirt, are you standing next
to a long pointy tower or...
Wondering at what point did I slip into geekdom? Not like it's a
bad thing because I don't think that it is. In the past year I have
purchased a flat screen TV, a Roku 3, a tablet, a router and hooked
it all up myself, along with a few Bluetooth devices. And then
synced them with my Android phone and home wifi.
Carpe diem... is the fish of the day really carp?
Why specifically carp and not any other fish?
What's wrong with catfish or tuna? Not that I would eat either one,
nor the carp.
Starting a sapiosexual dating virtual site where the hottest
members are all in your mind (& theirs).
How OKC can say that I am less mathematical when I have been in
accounting for 30 years?
Why is it that when we are conversing here on OKC, guys ask, "can
we chat?" Is that not what we are doing?
Why does the glass have to be half empty or half full? Why can't it
just be enjoyed and appreciated for what is in it?
Conceptualizing the difference between love and lust and the
chemistry for each. Recognizing on a date if there is chemistry in
lust or chemistry in love between us as I am only interested in
obtaining the latter while only entertaining the idea of the first.
So many say that they are looking for chemistry but generally they
mean in reference to lust. Chemistry in love is different but for
those who do not know how to differentiate the two, it could easily
be confused as one and the same.
There was this really awesome conversation I was having with a
gentleman on this site. We seemed to be clicking exceptionally well
in our first discussion & I was even starting to think how
meeting him in real life could only be that much more wonderful. It
was 10a, I was just crawling into bed for the night, & he asked
"What do I like in bed?" I said "Sleep.". At which point, he
dropped off, & I've not heard from him since. :-( Up until that
Q&A, it was an unbelievably terrific meshing of the minds &
I keep pondering why, when we were clicking so well, he would drop
off & so suddenly. Yes, I understand the obvious. He was
interested been having sex. Point being why give up a good
connection? Again... :-(
on this site...
Why state that you want someone drama free or non clingy? Shouldn't
this go without saying? Most likely those that have drama or are
clingy have no clue that they do or are.
How filthy rich I'd be if I were to charge for all the crude offers
I receive on here.
Damn! I had no idea I was THAT sexy! WOW! Bring me a fireman
please. I am on fire! Yeow! That's hot!
Why does OKC give the option of single or available. Can't one be
both? I am single AND I am available.
How "white" became an "ethnicity".
Why do guys answer "no" to both smoking and drugs yet say in their
profile they are 420 friendly? Since when is 420 not a drug AND a
smoke? If 1 is 420 friendly, it seems they should be answering
"yes" to both. In any case, I'm not and have no interest in having
you contact me if you are.
How did I miss that in grammar class?!?
Why do guys on this site want a phone number immediately? Why do
they acquire an attitude when I won't give it to them (my phone
number, as we have not yet met for them to ask, beg, or request
anything else, not that they would)? I won't do that again & it
is based on past experiences, yes plural - as in more than one,
from this site. If we can't come up with any good conversation
while messaging back and forth on here what are we going to do
while we're sitting in a coffee shop?!?
Why do people find it appealing to use the "oh poor pity me" in
their profile? In spite of how daunting my profile may appear, I am
not that difficult to approach or talk to. Not everyone who views
my profile contacts me but I don't I feel a need to take it
personally or complain as some do. Instead of feeling neglected and
whine about it, I consider it a blessing, especially since there
are some horny individuals that do contact me and I really wish
they would not.
Outside of this site...
What constitutes a great kisser? When one says he's a good kisser,
how does he know? Did he kiss himself to find out? Isn't kissing
yourself like one hand clapping? You never really get the whole
effect that way to know.
The meaning of life? Why am I here? No. Really. Why am I on this
dating site instead of already being with my Mr Right-For-Me?
Why guys on this site often find it more important to list their
income rather than what they do for a living? What you do and
whether or not you enjoy it says much more about you, your
personality, and how we might be more likely to connect than how
much you get paid to do it. I would much rather get to know YOU,
rather than your wallet.
Why, on this website, in the "likes children" section, it gives the
option of "liking kids", "not liking them", & "not wanting
them" but doesn't give the option of "wants them"? It is possible
to not like them & want them anyway or to like them & want
(or not want) them.
Note: I guess even OKC reads profiles, for they finally took my
suggestion and changed that. Yeah!! & yes I did update that
part of my profile to "likes and wants kids".
And then there are all the usual conundroms like this one and a
zillion others to ponder:
-Why do we ask for a check at a restaurant? We cannot cash
- When the stars are out they are visible, but when the lights are
out they are invisible; excluding those stars that dazzle the red
carpet of course.
