This is probably never going to work, but it's not like threads cost money, so what the hell. This is a fascinating thread over on SomethingAwful, but there are too many fucking people there and so the thread grows about 700 posts a day and nobody can keep up. Let's try it here among our smaller, more elite population of Thundering Assholes. One astonishing thing about the Internet is that it made online dating socially acceptable. To anybody born after about 1990 this is probably the most natural thing in the world, but you guys weren't around back in the early days of the Internet going mainstream - before the Web - and on the pre-Internet online services like CompuServe, GEnie, and Q-Link. These were, as far as anyone could tell, populated almost entirely by creeps, ultranerds, shut-ins, and people on disability. Thank God that scanners were super expensive, digital cameras didn't exist, and there wasn't enough storage or bandwidth for pictures in those days. But now, everybody's on the Internet and they're hooking up there, too. Messaging a girl and not getting a message back is a much nicer way of getting rejected than having her look around awkwardly going "Ummmm...." in person, isn't it? I think so. I am also personally partial to the Internet because even hopeless below-average-looking idiots like myself can be pimps on the Internet and line up dates. FOCUS: Post a link to your profile on an online dating service and we will help you improve it here. If you don't want to have it associated with your username, PM me and I'll post it anonymously. And who knows, maybe you will meet the TiBber/TiBette of your dreams... FRYLOCK EDIT: This is a legitimate effort for the community to help the community, NOT for the lulz or to Wahoo anybody. Yes, sometimes the truth can hurt, but please do your best to make it hurt at little as possible, mkay? Thanks.
