Yes, it's hard to read, the point is it's insanely complicated.

Also, yes I am back on a dating website, and that is sad.

I have to second that. Dream girls definitely aren't on dating sites. On dating sites you get weirdos with brown teeth and scar tissue who will tell you much too personal things and lie about their weight. Seriously.

Although, I barely know you. Maybe brown teeth and scar tissue IS what you're seeking.

Or they are really smart but somewhat annoying and tell you on the first date that the last person they were seeing, they went three weeks then had the "where is this going" talk but hadn't even had sex yet. And say a lot about morals, and make it extremely obvious that you aren't getting any water from this well. And are the kind of awkward loud talker. Yeah.

Wait, am I being very specific, as if I were just on a date? weird.

Oof.
Well at least that person didn't invite you over, make you listen to the entirety of their band's experimental album while scanning your face for reaction and then ask if you wanted to hear it again.

Full disclosure: That didn't happen to me.

I lived with a friend for a year when she was she going on match.com dates all the time. There were some doozies but she eventually met a good guy whom she now lives with. So maybe online dating isn't always doomed to fail.

Yup, she isn't.

And now I feel guilty because I took 30% of the photos he is using on his OKC profile. I'm part of the problem now, let me jump off a cliff in emo communion.

Is it creepy to say that your haircut is too good for the Capital Region?

And while we're speaking of creepiness, I love that this guy is "similar" to you. Wow, that backpack strap across his chest really makes me fantasize about what's under that faded Life is Good™ t-shirt.

Hahaha he is like me, but I am hornier, apparently.

You know, I appreciate the haircut comment. Other people, who will not be named but who may or may not have commented here, give me hell about it all the time.

That doesn't sound like such a bad idea.

Still, I'm still cutting my own hair. I guess I'll trim the back this weekend.

It's only from the front in those pictures. Is something wrong with the back? Is it actually a mullet? In that case, I withdraw my compliment.

No, I just have trouble approaching people.

trufax: I once actually googled "how to approach a girl at the bus stop". Then I admitted to myself that I'm doing life all wrong.

No, that's endearing. If you were really lame, like...some people, you'd just have a history of hopefully posting Missed Connections and then maniacally checking your email while fantasizing about the meeting, sex, and then mostly blissful 1-3 years together.

And apparently it's easy to approach people via LJ. Heed my example!

i have to agree. that is pretty endearing.

honestly, if i was approached at a bus stop by someone who actually had all their teeth, wasn't drooling all over their shirt and was at least somewhat attractive, i'd be rather thrilled. i imagine it's the same for most women, no?

I met one of my former boyfriends at a bus stop actually. Well, technically it was at the cafe/news stand (where I worked) attached to a Greyhound bus station, but it's kind of the same thing.
