Default "love outside the box"

met a girl recently ws goin 2 date with but ended up seeing sum1. I was really glad to hear this but also she was thinking of setting me up with her friends. I got rlly xcited & emailed a .gif "love outside the box" not really thinkn tht sh probs not know wth it means. So I ended up feeln like I had jumped on the soapbox without thinkn. I had to explain it all -she said "so are you looking for a relationship or are you looking for fun?" My answer might be a lot more complic8d thn tht. I'm playing a dangeorus game where I might not get any intro's what so ever. How the forumppl d8d b4? what d8ing expereinces have ppl had like this? or any general advice pls

Have mercy on those of us whose first language isn't English! No numbers or too many abbreviations, please.

translation

I met a girl recently. Was going to date with [her] but she ended up seeing someone [else]. I was really glad to hear this but also she was thinking of setting me up with her friends. I got really excited and emailed a .gif "love outside the box," not really thinking that she probably didn't know what I meant.

So I ended up feeling like I had jumped on the soapbox without thinking. I had to explain it all -she said, "So, are you looking for a relationship or are you looking for fun?" My answer might be a lot more complicated than that.

I'm playing a dangerous game where I might not get any introductions [to other potential dates] whatsoever. How have the forum people dated before? What dating experiences have people had like this? Or any general advice, please.

Thank you, Magdlyn!

I've gotten that 'are you poly or just looking for fun?'. OkCupid is easy since you can bring it up in your profile asap.
