OK, an update on my singleness... still single, just went from being single in KS to being single in VA. HAHA, though I have made a few friends now.

I think someone should find out if we could put little blurbs about ourselves on here with lets say, Age, Sex, Location (General), height, weight/build(for those who don't want to post weight), and then maybe interests. Hmm, not sure that actually breaks any of the rules of this form.


as it is written, so shall it be done
Sexuality:
   Any discussion involving sexuality, and related topics is banned. Don't even try to get around it with a "NSFW" tag in the title. We have no control over the ages of people browsing this forum, so keep it clean.


and from a bit of additional question-asking i did after this thread was locked
The singles thread was temporarily locked when a decision to de-emphasize the "flirty" nature of the threads that seemed to be over-running the OT forum.  I wasn't that the nature of  the posts was offensive.  After more discussion, an administrator decided to unlock it.

still a bit murky in that water...probably best not to tread just yet...

and if you're in Virginia, you're not too terribly far from PA. you should come up! we're having a Steam-themed club event for the 21-and-over in Lancaster! *shameless self-promotion*

In all reality, "steampunk" is anachronistic, innit? Otherwise it's just Victorian dress-up.

chain smokin', sleep needin', apparel designin', mohawk havin', tea drinkin', steady cursin', boy charmin', card readin' rabble-rouser and amusement park cleverly disguised as a woman

i was keeping quiet, but GAH!   Just because someone is skinny doesn't mean they starve themselves to get that way just like just because someone is large doesn't mean they're shoveling it down 24/7.  
   Some of us just grow this way.  >_<  

And guys like boobs.  Some guys like skinny, but not most.   And how many songs do you know about small asses?  Yeah, none.  Thin may be in in theory but in actuality, it really isn't.  Guys don't like it as much as you'd expect, and other girls resent me for it.

1 - i don't resent thin people. all except for the ones who complain about how fat they are. they irritate me.

2 - to the gents in the room could someone please explain the male obsession with boobs? feel free to PM me so as to not offend the delicate modesty of anyone else in the vicinity. i've asked quite a few of my male friends and no one can really explain it.

I don't resent thin people, I resent thin people that starve themselves to be that way, then call them selves fat.  One of my best friends is tall and naturally skinny, and I think she's really beautiful.



the ones who call themselves fat kinda piss me off too--girls will point out their flaws then expect you to do the same, which i refuse to do. It bothers me... 

I understand the appeal of boobs.  They're bouncy and squishy and you can play with them, and they make good pillows to lie on (for the other person, less comfy for the person they're attached to...)

i like my eyelashes ^_^

oh golly lolly...i need to buy more furniture as the death by hugging party is growing by leaps and bounds.

the only one of my flaws that i tend to dwell on is the fact that my eyes cross a bit. i have learned to find it charming as i've gotten older, but i still rarely take photos without my head turned a bit.

as to boobs, i'll happily donate them to someone who would like them. they get in the way and make it nearly impossible to find a blouse that stays closed at work...

I would say there are a great many personal websites out there where you can post that information and link in your profile (I believe there's a spot even for myspace in your profile form.)  So you can put the link there.  This is a forum to talk about steampunk.

If you'd like a personal site to be steampunk themed (like how soulgeek is for geeks)  why not start it up yourself?  I can show you where to get free forum software.  You could be the first!

I'm not a gent, but, come on, who doesn't love boobs? ... Not that I swing that way- but something about the female form is beautiful. If it wasn't artists wouldn't have painted it.

And nice eyelashes. Unfortunately (or not so, I've never cared), mine are not long. And I hate to use mascara or curl them. I'm not a big fan of make up either.  But due to my sad lack of knowledge on the application, by the advice of a close friend of my aunts and mothers (our orthodontist, haha), my mother and I ventured to a place and I was taught how to do my eyes. (and the lady picked out a lovely lip gloss...but despite not needing it, I bought it anyway). Anyway--- Katarina, I'm with you, I don't like make up either.

...i am a gent and i must say that boobs...and the reason why we have fascinations with them is that..well..as a baby we are programed to look at boobs as a sign of well to be blunt...food So unconsciously we like them because in subconscious they are food..as we are driven towards them...this would also explain the female fascination..

On a night encumbered with pyrotechnic sentiment, I have retrorecently decided my patterns have led me into the hazy gullet of an oroborous. I posses the need to speak new words to novel people in nouveau settings. So indulge me or quit this paragraph, O.T. I have the expectation that somebody else who experiences this drive to forgo a calm present tense will suddenly strike contact with me. Indeed this may have transpired before, but I was still winding an old watch the wrong way. Thus I am attempting to gain momentum through a prequel dissemination of an introduction to people who may or may not ever be real to me. So stop by for a game of chess, anonymous; I do know you're out there, and time is recycling rather with the air of honeysuckle lingering in the air.

I leave you all with my very finest villanelle, the promise of many more gilded words, and the simple challenge to enthrall me, dear audience.

A Heart's Proprietary Design

Insisting with monotone eyes, "I'm fine."
You pause. And glance away,
Whatever you are, you certainly aren't mine.

Your heart follows a proprietary design,
Through chattering teeth, to God you pray
Insisting with monotone eyes, "I'm fine."

Packages pour in, and to their empty contents you sign.
A sunbeam might catch your eye, but never does stay.
Whatever you are, you certainly aren't mine.

You dig your tunnel and seek the divergent line,
Leaving my arms with lessening delay.
Insisting with monotone eyes, "I'm fine."

Your features only ever looked real in moonlight's shine,
As you stride from backstage of the theatre's evening cabaret
Whatever you are, you certainly aren't mine.

And now we sit apart, never again to entwine.
Your life, you state, is in a private disarray.
Insisting with monotone eyes, "I'm fine."
Whatever you are, you certainly aren't mine.

Reni, at least you're trying, which is more than you can say for me. I prefer to compliment beautiful women from a safe, anonomous distance.


by "trying" i pretty much mean leaving my house. because that's about where the try ends. otherwise there'd be less "try" and more "do," as it were.

Still, that's more than I do. I leave the house for school, to get exercise, to go to the library, and to go directly to friend's places. Nothing else.
Granted, the library does have free wireless internet.

sweetest, only slightly. i go to work, to uni, errands and such (the market, the post, et cetera) - usually with my child in tow, and the first weekend of the month i have a club night but that's more second nature than out to look at the lovelies and such. and even then, i don't consider myself so far out of the ordinary to behold. no, that's not self-doubt or self-loathing - i love being me - but me when surrounded by the taller/paler/meeker/less scowly doesn't seem to be the thing anymore. and i simply refuse to change who i am in order to have someone interesting chat me up. in the meantime, i'll continue shooing the chavs and waiting for a new Pangea...  Wink

Painfully single still... I fell in love, but, it cannot be, and thus, I remain.
 Cry
But, one day, one day it might turn out fine, but I'm not holding up my hopes.
Till that time, I'm unsure if I should turn myself out to what I may find...
I'm pretty sure that I'll stay single anyway.

Oh for christ's sake, we're not going into the pity party again, are we?

Ladies, just becasue you see faults in yourself doesn't make you any less beautiful. You don't have to feel it 100% of the time for it to be true. Wollowing in your own self-degredation not only brings you down, but brings down those around you who care for you.

So, really, if you insist on hating yourself, keep it to yourself.

To sum up - if you behave as if you're attractive, you'll be attractive.
It's been said before that confidence is attractive in and of itself.
Saying how attractive you're not will only make that self-depreciating point more true.

If you're complimented, learn to bloody well take the complement rather than ride the damned pity train.

I don't know that I'm capable of finding shyness endearing, in a romantic sense. It's alright in my friends, as, well, it takes all kinds, but confidence is one of the most attractive things a person can exude.

And, well, in all honesty, I'll regularly outshine any man prone to being shy, which I am not comfortable with. I've got a rather old fashioned mentality on how a man and woman should present themselves as a couple.

And now, back to your contemplations on the subject. I'm done rambling, hehehe

I'm as timid as it gets...
I may walk tall and seem imposing (which is a complete contrast to my character) but when I'm in a group of more then two people, I shut right up. Even if it's two close friends of mine, I wont speak unless spoken to.
And when I talk, it's usually soft and cautious. Sure I can yell, but I only use that once in a while.

I'm not sure what caused this, but I think it's band. When I was in it, the teacher demanded respect, and thus, when she was talking, everyone shut up. Other habits I've picked up; not walking in between people when they are talking, not interrupting with noise, patience, and courtesy.

I gave up my shyness. It wasn't worth anything. Sometimes I still feel something of the like, but I push it away. Becomes easier and easier. Heh. Now, I really don't like being the second loudest table in a bar, if you catch my meaning.

I'm starting to worry if I'm just too picky. But on the other hand, what's the point of having a relationship without real attraction or compatibility?  I don't want to date just for the sake of it so until I meet someone attainable who I'm mad about, I'll just have to remain single.

No indeed, I'm not a weak character, I just have to be very relaxed around someone to display that character. Relaxed is generally NOT what I am when interested in someone!

No person embodies one singular social aspect 100% of the time. It's impossible. We're mutable creatures, and variety is key to being a real human being.

I think the biggest oversight in this entire subject is actually the root of the solution.

Shyness is a problem to be overcome, being quiet is not, nor is it the same thing.
Arrogance (being a braggart) is a problem to oversome, being confident is not, nor is it the same thing.

So, of course being shy or being a braggart is undersireable! Both these tendancies are borne of fear. Fear of being thought a fool, fear of not being accepted, fear of rejection, fear of being laughed at, FEAR.

Once that fear is faced, it's a whole lot less scary. And from there, one can actually *be* quiet and contemplative and confident and attractive and interesting and humorous, ect ect. Once you stop worrying about what people think, you can do what makes you, well, you.
