NYC, if would if you were into gaming (role playing, not gambling) or dated people into gaming (as in my case). It's a whole new world(s)!

That's probably true of at least half of the questions where I provided explanations, as well as most of my profile.

But... why would you have answers that only one segment of the population would understand? And "character sheets" for sexual roleplaying? Do people actually give each other scripts to follow? And I've no idea what a d20 is. I just don't get it (SMH).

Default This morning's message

Found this in my OKC inbox today:
Hi! I need a girl who is honset,trustworthy, caring, hopeful,beautiful like you, you not bad for me send your information to me or this my ___@ hotmail.com
"Need a girl" and "you not bad for me" -- yuck! I went to send a sarcastic response and his account was already disabled. That is the third time this week I received an asinine message and shortly thereafter the account was disabled. They must've got the hint from the responses their idiocy had generated. Weird.

I think the best OKC message I've ever seen, hands down, was one my friend received. She got a message that just said "My mom took away my Xbox until I get a date, do u want to go out?"

That was it. Nothing else, just that. And the guy had his age listed as 35.

If you are interested in people from that narrow segment of the population, why not? It helps to weed out people who aren't going to get your jokes.

That bit is the joke. Character sheets are used for tabletop or pen 'n paper roleplaying games, most of which have very little to do with sex. Edit: Think Dungeons & Dragons.

A 20-sided dice, commonly used when playing the above-mentioned games.

"Hi, your profile really scotch me. Want to chat?"

what does this even mean? some kind of slang that I haven't heard before?

ROFL! Sounds like a catch! Did she date him?

She didnt respond to it. We werent sure if the guy was trying to be funny and just came off as super strange or if he was serious. Either way she wasn't interested.

The match percentages are, I've found, extremely poor indicators of how well you'll get along with someone. Especially considering how many questions they answer and you answer make a big difference in the percentages.
