You and your realms, Andrea

Hi Ange, Holly, Nick. How's Grandma P?

I’m not into realms shows or fancy TV soap operas. I want my TV shows to be procedural & episodic and real life to be a narrative… If possible.
  7:10pm marc:

On OkCupid you can message someone who blocked you?
  7:15pm marc:

I dated guys in the era before cell phones, texting, and emails. We stayed in contact and it was less complicated
  7:15pm Callie:

I don't miss the men from Lebanon and Cyprus who seemed sincere when they'd message me on okc

Emoji are freakin' stupid.

Weird thing is, the majority of my super high matches on OKC tend to be super religious

Emoji are the worst. Entering them is a pain and it's not a standard, like say, letters are.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Skurky:

I don't even know how to get emojis on my droid.

I believe young Amedeo has made an extensive study of emoji.

You guys are making me feel old and hungry.
  7:24pm P-90:

"...ypung Amedeo" sounds like a Jedi apprentice
  7:26pm Listener Robert:

Uh-oh. A friend wants to get me to move out of the Bronx, following him, to near Hawley, Penna., where he's bldg. a house for himself. He wants friends in the area. It's not exactly the Poconos, but NNE of them.
  7:27pm i k e:

Cute girl not getting back to me much after a couple of good dates, says she's swamped at work and has family in town. Not sure if she's actually interested and actually swamped, or just begging off w/an excuse or what. No way to tell, I guess. Too bad, seemed promising.

DUI is different from IUD, yes?

Oh, the RIDER was drunk.

Yeah like, I thought the horse drove itself.
  7:29pm SeanG:

  7:32pm P-90:

@Ike: Those ARE especially ambiguous. The tell: does she say she's looking forward to getting together after the swamp, the family, etc? Another possibility: she wants to keep the door open with you, but also has someone else she's investigating, wants to see where that's going.
  7:35pm Linda McL:

I love Y O Y!
  7:36pm marc:

Serious Question: As any who follows me on Twitter knows, I'm having a difficult time moving on from a painful and emotionally scaring breakup. Is OkCupid the app for someone who wants to just date without being pressured into a serious relationship right away?
  7:37pm P-90:

Wait, even if I killed the rogue bear that's terrorizing the neighborhood, I 'm not gonna post the photo of me with the corpse on a dating site profile. But, I'm from the city, so what do I know?
  7:38pm Golde:

I am a NYer living in Berlin, Germany. Dating here is bizarre. People aren't that great at flirting, in my opinion. Very direct. Men just stare. And stare. And stare.
  7:39pm P-90:

  7:44pm marc:

Thank you Andrea and Holly
  7:46pm Jessica:

Just listening to Why Oh Why, actually helped me get into a very good relationship and wanted to say
THANKS Andrea :)
  7:46pm Golde:

I also feel weird dating men whose relatives were probably... Nazis?
  7:48pm J . Pear:

Don't worry about the comments . Do your show. Yawn.
  7:49pm Golde:

The war always comes up and it's so hard to go to the bathroom after the info surfaces and realize that my date's grandparents would have sent me or my relatives to the camps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Ĩkє:

@P-90@7:32, thanks, you might be right about those possibilities. Hmm.
Avatar 7:55pm Jeff:

I've made pretty much every possible dumb miscommunication error on dates, each one its own embarrassing learning opportunity.

For example, this doozy:

I went on a date with someone I thought was genuinely cool and wanted to see again, so what did I do? I bought and read a book she'd talked about, so we'd have another thing to talk about on the next date. Then I contacted her to ask to get together again, and... I bet you're all ahead of me now... she'd interpreted my silence while I was engaged in the reading project as lack of interest, moved on, met someone she liked, and was already involved.

I often want to slap my younger self for being a dumbass.
  7:55pm Golde:

And the reality is that the issue of whether or not nationalistic characteristics exist becomes a common issue of concern while dating. Punctuality. Group think. Etc, etc. Reminds you of some darker and tragic issues beyond the date itself...

Bless you, Andrea, for making things clear through your communication in situations like that -- that's very cool. We should all be so good at communicating.
