I HATE when people tell me I "shouldn't say that." I will say "that." Whatever "that" is
I'm infinitely curious, I may ask you a lot of questions. I'm an information addict, I want to know EVERYTHING
I can't wait to explain to people in 30 years that Michael Jackson was a real person who actually existed. There's just no way they're going to believe me when I tell them that he started off black then turned white, he was the King of Pop and he married the daughter of the King of Rock, he had a detachable nose, he lived in an amusement park, his best friend was a monkey and everyone hated him because they thought he touched little boys, but then he died and everyone loved him again.
I could watch movie trailers for hours.
I think people who run marathons are people who want more credit for doing the single most boring exercise ever. Jogging with a thousand other people for far too long does not change the fact that you're jogging.
I think that "fashion" is a con.
One of my greatest fears is that the future will be amazing, and I'll have had contributed nothing to it or, alternatively, that it's terrible and I did nothing to attempt to prevent it.
Tips for OKCers:
Hey girls, I know it's super brutal on here for you guys, I know douches just bombard you with messages, but I have a few tips that I think can help you out (and I'm honestly just trying to help, this isn't meant to be whiny or angry).
First, replace every mention of your love for travel and music with something actually unique to you. You know that thing you think about that always makes you chuckle but you figure everyone else would find weird if you said it out loud? Put that in your profile instead. So many people on this site try to make their profiles as broad as possible to appeal to as many people as possible (hence the ubiquitous references to food, travel, and music) leading to an epidemic of generic profiles. The problem is that if there is no substance in your profile, then no one can message you about anything substantive, hence the deluge of douchey messages. If you don't give us anything to talk to you about, then the only thing we have to go on is your appearance, so you shouldn't be surprised when the people who message you are only doing so because they are attracted to you. And don't worry, that funny/weird thing you put down doesn't have to resonate with everyone. Most people are just looking for something genuine and sincere in the site since it's so filled to capacity with meaningless drivel. But more importantly, why are you trying to appeal to everybody? You need to appeal to the people who YOU will like. If you want EVERYONE to like you, then your ego is probably dictating what goes into your profile, not your heart.
Second: Pictures ladies. Your pictures are typically either waaaay too good, or god awful. Half are taken by professional photographers and make you look like a supermodel, and half are taken by your friend from 2003 on their flip-phone. Don't have a good picture? Ask a friend to take one of you with their iPhone in a place with decent lighting. Just like with the profile, there's really no benefit to you for putting up a picture that makes you look like a model aside from stoking your ego. Don't you want someone who will actually like what you look like when they meet you? Personally, I think high quality, good pictures of you NOT posing are the best option. They convey something about your personality, they accurately depict your appearance (sure they can lean toward flattering), and they're welcoming. Again, if you only post pictures where you look gorgeous whose going to email you? Guys who like you because you look hot, not because they think you'd make a good match. But having terrible pictures is bad too. One might hope that bad pictures mean that only people who really like your profile will message you. But in reality if your pictures are terrible (I mean blurry or grainy, or where you can hardly see your face), what are the odds that the guy who would really like you is going to even read your profile? Once again the only guys who will message you are the douches who are messaging EVERYONE. And really, the cleavage shots? Do I even have to talk about that?
