I don't really want "enemies," but it is nice to have a single arch-nemesis.

I used to have an arch-nemesis.
I destroyed him.
Was he flying and shooting lightning bolts from his eyes and you kicked him so far he saw the curvature of the earth?
I punch more than kick. It hurts my toes.
While I was overanalyzing my life - as I do. I have decided not to get a dating profile yet. But I have specifically pinpointed what I need in a relationship after much research and consideration (not traits I want in a person - that's a different story entirely).
1. Little communication; bi-monthly maximum
2. No use or discussion of L words; “love” or “like”
3. Copious physical interaction; bi-monthly maximum communication is waived if all communication leads to physical interaction.
4. Non-exclusivity and no jealousy/qualms about this.
5. No cuddling
Courting/Exclusive Relationship (not long distance; not cohabitating):
1. Daily communication
2. In person visits 3 times a week; 4 times maximum (not including if you have long weekend).
3. Equal distribution of communication/date initiation
4. Copious physical interaction
6. Fair amount of doting in and out of person
Lol what's your profile name?? I'll pay you a visit.
I could use a really good bromance at this years Coachella. Will you hold my head up while I puke?
Another Daft Punk album, great guys, so glad you spent years making this:
Now would you please shut the fuck up with this boring crap and get back to mixing these tracks in with the rest of your catalog into something actually interesting, build a goddamn LED spaceship and get the fuck back on the road.
I've filled out so many profiles in the past 10 years that I've almost gotten it down to an art of repelling just about everyone who isn't on my very particular wavelength. Mine's about 70% surreal jokes, bullshit, self deprecating humor, and random pointless asides, and about 30% honest self representation/interests mixed in. Most profile questions are fairly inane, and the whole idea of encapsulating even a small sliver of the ineffable me into a paragraph or two of text is fundamentally absurd, so I figure the best way to attract people is to treat the whole thing as something of a piss take, but not so much that I seem uninterested in actually getting to know people. Just enough for people to understand my weird sensibilities. It's kind of a worst food forward approach. If you don't like this, you probably aren't going to enjoy time spent with me.
My profile is 2check, since we're doing this thing. I think I was 81% compatible with Robin. I stopped using it because it was just ridiculous, and I have no problem meeting women. It was suggested to me after a break up, so I said fuck it. It's brought me some amusement. I think the best was when i messaged this chick, and she responded about two weeks later. She said something about me getting lost in the shuffle. She had a picture of herself wearing a fake mustache, so, in a drunken stupor I replied, "hahaha you look cute as fuck with that mustache, but I don't get lost in the shuffle.". I'm obviously not cut out for online dating. ;P
EDIT: Fuck, I lied. My profile is twocheck. That's how often I use it.
me and patrick must be profile twins. that's sort of my strategy too. and Newro7ic and i would never date apparently. i sometimes go a long time without responding, though i don't say something lame like "lost in the shuffle", i just respond. if they don't like how long it took, too bad
You guys should make a profile without uploading pictures or putting your name. Just answer a bunch of the questions and fill out some of the basic stuff, and I think you should be able to see how you match with everybody with only that.
Mine is up and running, just not filled out all the way..DowningThief.
Barb 72% - 71% Friend
Scruffshaggy (Mugwog?) 65% - 74% Friend
Courtney 58% - 74% Friend
Patrick 50% - 72% Friend
Looks like i'm a better friend than lover. I filled out some of the questions, but didn't put a lot of thought into it since i'm not really going to be using the app. The "Locals" option is totally Grindr...that's hilarious. Unfortunately I don't think the iphone app can search by username (probably user error). Boo, i'll have to creep your profiles from home. Or just visit mine so I can keep a running tab like Courtney. I like/terrified of the option of seeing who's visited you're profile, so please keep posting those usernames. Mine is "JorgeinOntario" (same as Scramble and Words with Friends if anyone wants to send a game my way)...boring day at work.
80% match / 77% friend / 19% enemy with Jorge.
I wonder how they actually determine these, because we don't match at all on the questions.
They also gave me a 99% match the other day, and I didn't math with him on questions either...
Looking at some of my local matches, there are actually some cool girls on here. One of them is extremely into hiking, which is an activity I've been especially interested in lately. Another just graduated from UTAustin's law school, which is another thing I've been especially interested in lately.
I went on a first date last night with a guy who had this really effeminate laugh. I mentally checked out like 5 minutes into the date and threw back a few whiskey sours. I honestly don't remember at all what we talked about. Gave him the turn of the cheek don't even try to kiss me goodbye.
5/25-5/27: MOVEMENT DETROIT
6/6: The Field @ The Independent
6/26: Colin Stetson @ The Chapel
Well, that sucks, but I rather think most of the dates won't go very well.
I haven't had any luck setting up more dates yet. Boo.
