If you are on a website, people are 1) Dating 2) Looking for hookups. I do not presume to be the sole communicant of anyone I am talking to.

Mandy, you met #1 a week ago. Sounds like maybe the two of you might have been better off as friends since you have so much in common. Its always nice to have a support system.

He said he understands and is okay with it. Even said if I were to ever date someone who wasnt okay with it to run the other way. Pretty damn good answer.

And technically, we've had at least 4 dates but yes, it's only been a week. And I do now have a second date planned with #2. Right now I have exciting new things going on at work, so thankfully I can focus on that instead of obsessing over menfolk.

#1 sounds like awesome friend potential. Every single lady needs male friends to bounce things off of /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

Maybe. We'll see. I mean, I would hope that a partner would be a friend first and foremost, and yeah I'm friend-ly with just about all of my exes, but it's kind of hard to go back there once you've had feelings like that for someone.

Dan Savage had the founder of okcupid on his podcast today. The advice the guy gave for success on his website: be hotter, live in a bigger city, and lower your standards. Rofl, not very helpful!

LOWER MY STANDARDS /tantrum.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':tantrum:' />

I don't think so. I have lowered my standards already...steady income from a reliable legal source, well-groomed (ie bathes and brushes teeth daily) and intelligent. Some of us just don't do the internet dating thing very well. But hey, electronics have improved over the past 20 years.

You forgot 3) Looking for free meals.

You'd better not be suggesting lowered standards or someone isn't getting fed tonight!

I like OkCupid, & have met some great people. Zoosk, on the other hand, is terrible. I have a pic of myself wearing a crash helmet w my face between a woman's knees. I'm thinking of making it my Zoosk profile pic & under the biographical section write "I'm a trucker looking for a woman EXACTLY like my mother." I think this would PROBABLY result in better matches than what Zoosk suggests. Horrible, horrible site...

Can I ask what exactly you thought was going to happen to you between the woman's knees that required a crash helmet?

I had terrible experiences on OKCupid. Never again. Random weirdos asking me if they can suck my toes and the good-looking guys writing stuff like, "My ex-girlfriends were awesome. All of them were smart as hell, funny, attractive, and taught me a lot. Can you measure up?" Yeah, I think I'd rather go on Craigslist thanks.

This remains my favourite ever exchange on OKC:

"When men show extra courtesy toward women (opening doors, pulling out chairs, etc.), this is:

Sexist and insulting; women are perfectly capable."


Its the way some of us was brought up..its second nature..its programed in and mostly comes from households with a strong mother in charge so how is that sexist..if i see a woman being hassed by a couple of guys in the street i go over but i bet thats sexist too? Is it sexist to stop a rape when i would not stop a couple of woman gropping a guy? And yes women are capable but many like to be looked after..


AHAHAHA this is your idea of an introductory message? Fail. Pro tip: "your answers are wrong and here's why. Also, rape!" is possibly not the best way to start a conversation. Don't contact me again.


Hmm i see you are impossable to talk too..your way or no way..good bye


Yeah. Smoooooooooth moves dude. /smoking.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smoking:' />
