    I'm only good with a small handful of knots, that's one of the things I'm still in the process of learning. In the worst case I will rely on the few I know to get by. Figure 8 knots are versatile and have a bit of variety in their construction, so I imagine I'd lean heavily on those, slip knots, and angler's knots until I upped my game. I need to learn more bends for the sake of scavenged rope or cordage.

    I find the counterintuitive simplicity of a clove hitch very appealing. My brain says no, but my heart says yes.

    Talking about knots in a thread about dating is kind of hot, so I get what amy is saying.

    Shit just went up a whole other notch. Just walked past a homeless dude outside Benaroya Hall who, as I was walking past, left me with this gem: "Miss can you spare some change? No? Well then can I buy you a cup of coffee sometime? No? Ok ok, A BURGER!"

    So everyone walking along 3rd Ave will eventually be subsidizing your burger and/or coffee. Great.

    Oh dear god, I just made a profile on OkCupid at some friends' urging. "Just try it for a few weeks, it'll be fun!" they say.

    I have stayed away from this thread until now, because I was perfectly content dating my damn self. And I read a few pages back, and now wonder if I should just save us all the trouble and just delete.
    Is it weird that I had to mention my love for this festival and that I placed a lot of importance that we have similar music tastes? I'm sure this has been discussed here before.

    Try not to overthink it. Also, are you going to give us your screen name on there so we can check out your profile?

    One thing I can say: if taste in music is very important, mightn't it be better to meet someone at a show or other music-related gathering? I feel like that'd be a more natural way to go about it if you're so concerned about OkCupid. Plus, the worst that happens is that you see a concert or listen to good music somewhere else.

    I go to a lot of shows. The problem is that I'm usually having way too much fun to remember to try and impress boys. Besides, they always go for my friends or whatever. I've always hoped it would work that way. It never has.

    maroo has a point, though.

    It is not weird to say you have a love for Coachella/festivals/shows/music. That's important/great/necessary. But there's a difference between "similar music tastes" and "compatible music tastes", especially if the former is defined by specific bands or even genres.

    I think it is important to find someone who has a good amount of overlap in terms of musical preferences and can understand your passion and will excitedly attend some shows with you... but I have never found anyone who wanted to go to every show I did. I don't require my friends to share all of my interests; there's a higher bar for a partner but you don't have to be attached at the hip.

    Though ucla has a point, too.

    A lot of what I see recommended for/at OkCupid are ways to get as many people as possible interested in you. And that is some of what I am talking about above; it is important question your preferences to gauge how important they actually are and if you've set them right. That being said one of the great things about OKC is that you can pre-screen people. It isn't science and treating it as rigid isn't going to be great but it can be a powerful tool.

    I could ignore people that smoked and were (seriously) religious. This cuts down the available dating pool quite a bit but I would be sick all the time if I was with someone that smoked and I would be unhappy and constantly in conflict with someone religious.

    No, I'm not.

    I'm saying it would be good ask what one means by "we need to have similar music tastes" and why is that important. And what exceptions would work and how can you capture/convey that in a profile/screening process.

    Want what you want and search for it but try to understand/learn what that is first/in the process.

    i'm still befuddled as to why someone with nothing needs to be screening..

    how about:

    No one has nothing. And no one should feel they have to date/be with people they don't like/don't make them happy.
