I'm looking for people to actually hang out with. I have many text-based friendships, but nobody to play board games with.
You should be that person.
I actually live about an hour away from Athens, I can travel up to hang out every once in a while, or you can come travel to the dinky little town where I live.
I had a huge paragraph on here talking about what makes a bad first message here. That was dumb.
I'll instead post the three rules that Aziz Anzari and sociologist Eric Klinenberg came up with that make a good first message.
1. A firm invitation to something specific at a specific time (This one isnt for me... It's just for help in future endeavors of yours. I'm far too awful at being a person to just hang out with someone before we've talked)
2.Pay attention- Show that you've put effort into knowing who they are as a person (I also edited this one a little for relevance to the online dating world.)
This is actually super fucking helpful and he hits the nail on the fucking head. Definitely worth a read, if for nothing other than a giggle.
Also, I have a cat.
His name is Tesla
He likes to chew cords and destroy clothes.
He's my absolute favorite thing.
