I just deactivated mine again. I had only turned it back on to view PunkRock's brother's account - he wanted my opinion. The week it was on was enough for me! I thought about deleting it completely, but as I have a few other friends who sometimes want advice, I decided to just make it go dormant again.

I joined OKC after seeing people talking about it here... So far, I've had interesting/entertaining conversations with a couple of men, but also had a few clunkers.

One guy sent me a message in which he talked about getting together for drinks, wine over dinner, and watching our local sports teams. Despite my saying (at least in my answers, not sure whether it's in my profile but it will be now if it isn't already) that I'm severely allergic to all alcohol, and I have no interest in sports. He also talked about "clothes hanging from the ceiling fan" despite my saying I'm not looking for casual sex. His profile says he's looking for single women; mine clearly says I'm both married and in a long-term relationship. And when I pointed this out to him and expressed my lack of interest, he replied with, "No, no i think youll find I'm open." I deleted that; clearly the guy doesn't take "not interested" for an answer, so maybe no answer will get through his skull.

And this morning, from another guy, I got "Hello, would you might be interested in taking to me?"

Answer: "That depends. What would you like me to take to you? I could make a nice noodle casserole and take it to you."

Hyperskeptic, lol. I decided to just not answer... the "would you might" part made my inner grammarian twitchy.

Yeah, it's a good thing that we don't have to answer anyone if we don't want to.

"Hey babe, I can tie my shoes and type one word at the same time. In fact, I'm *tying* them right now! Go ahead and pinch yourself, you're not dreaming."

T = Telling
Y = You
I = I'm
N = Not
G = Gay.

How's that?

To "tie one on" (or be "tying one on") is to drink too much (so as to make yourself drunk).

In Urban Dictionary, tying means "taking excessively long to complete simple tasks."
