Tomorrow's weather in Montreal:



Doesn't know what it wants.

Sure it does, it wants EVERYTHING.

Dice, I wonder what your reaction picture would have been if I had written that I'd give T-Swift an Alabama Hot Pocket.

I'd ask what that is, but I'm not sure I want to know the answer...

Better copyright that before it becomes this summer's new hit.

Bieber's probably recording is as we speak.

People who believe that Taylor Swift actually lives the life she sings about probably also think that ICP really slice open babies and that pro wrestling is real.  She sings about what sells (to 12 year old girls) dood.

That sounded way meaner than I intended it to.
Idk, I mean, she's talented. She writes her own songs. She's stupid young. She's got potential to open her audience up greatly by just coming up with good themes. It's just irritating that every time I wanna see her sing something it's about a boy who did her wrong.

Also @Natros...how can you not say she's pretty? She's an angel <3<3<3
I kid, she's just really pretty to me. I have strange likes, I guess?

I doubt she writes all of her songs, a few tracks per album maybe but its just not how the "biz" works.
I say this with almost no research so take it with a grain of salt.
Besides, how hard is it to write a pop song?


♫ Oh baby, I love you but you did me wrong. U huh, you did me wrong, yeah baby, baby, baby... ♫
♫ Why does my heart go boom, boom, boom, every time you're in the room.  ♫
♫ Oh baby, I love you but you did me wrong. U huh.. ♫

About to play some Infinite Crisis. For a guy that used to hate MOBAs I sure play a lot of them. Still trying to muster up the time and willpower to finish FFXIII, its gonna happen damnit...

I think I'm staying away from the Internet for the rest of the day. I've already made myself look like an idiot three times so far today. As someone who gets extremely self-conscious, that level of embarrassment is extremely painful.

Only three? That's hardly a milestone for an internet dweller. Besides, making yourself look stupid on the internet is like passing gas in a crowded lift. Some people might even figure out it was you, but at the end of the day most of them don't know or care about who you are anyway, and those who do will probably just find it amusing.

OK Agent, so I finally got to see the photos.
Wouldn't call them winners for a dating site. It's not you, but the photos themselves.
The "Gym face" is probably funny for people that know you. These girls don't know you. You really don't want to creep someone out on your first impression.
On the next one you're chugging down on something. It's awkward and hard to even see your face.
On the last one you have a bit of a dazed look in a dimly lit setting.

You gotta sell your self bud.

Put on a trendy shirt (shirt, not a t-shirt or undershirt), go with a carefully trimmed beard or shave clean. Comb your hair, maybe even get a haircut.
Pick a well lit setting, best if its outside. Have someone take the photo for you, no selfies.
Smile, just try not to force it.
Go out, have a good time and have your friends/sister take some pictures. One of them will hit the sweet spot.

If I have to be honest, if I saw someone with that "Gym face" avatar try to pick up girls with PMs about Final Fantasy, I'd assume he was trolling.
Think of your profile as your dating CV and your first impression rolled into one.

I usually hear about them before I see the actual movie.

Hey, do you guys have some tips& tricks for painful legs? Mine start to hurt when I sit at my desk for longer than an hour or two without big breaks and that's kinda really annoying. Moving around (cycling, walking) make things a little better and I do so for 60 to 180 minutes a day, but it still builds up over the day. (And I can't get into by favourite boots later in the day, as my legs have usually swollen up by then).


Chair height, make sure it's just right so that your feet are resting on the floor but not pushing against it. Also make sure that there's no pressure applied to your joints which would bend them in a way they aren't supposed to (like resting your foot on its edge that will apply minimal sideways pressure to your knee). Lastly, get up and have a little walk when you feel your legs getting stiff, maybe do a little stretching to get the blood circulating.

I'm no doctor (but I do have a desk job), so keep in mind that this is based on personal experience and not any medical know how.

What the heck is a pompadour?

Anyway, looks like I've arrived so I bid you all a good night :)

My phone refuses to load the pics, but as long as you don't have a foot growing out of your forehead you should be just find. Men pay much more attention to the physical aspect than women do. For them it's more about the presentation (the female part of the forums is more than welcome to correct me on this one if need be), so what glass said about the clean shirt and smile is on the money.
On a side note, and without seeing the pictures, I assume you're in the 20-30 age group?
41  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Community Photo Thread: 5th Anniversary Edition on: May 15, 2015, 03:29:31 PM
I find it odd that, having two sisters, you would be out of your comfort zone around women. Might not prep you for the romantic side of things but it should give you more than enough insight into the female mind. Besides, sisters have friends :)

The delay is even worse than I though and I'll be lucky to reach my destination by midnight which is roughly two hours past the planned time of arrival. At this rate I might hit my 1k post milestone before the trip is over. Unless typing on this bloody phone drives me nuts and I end up having some sort of breakdown (or an epileptic fit since the screen is broken and likes to flicker...a lot). I really need to update my system and get a proper browser installed. You would not believe how much fiddling is involved in something as simple as editing a bit of text :/

Running into weird people on the internet is hardly a shocking turn of events. I would assume it goes double for dating sites.
Agent, out of curiosity, what exactly did she write to you (and did she write first). How many times did you really check her profile and what avatar did you end up using?
Fuggit, details incoming...

Ok, I had been glancing over profiles on okcupid via quickmatch and saw this one cute girl so I scrolled down to see if she had anything interesting to say about herself or interests. I wasn't reading everythinv, just looking for things that stood out (i.e. video games, cartoons, Rick and Morty, etc). Towards the end I caught something that really clicked...Why is FFVIII underrated. Now it's by no means my favorite ff title, that still goes to Tactics and VI respectively, but I like VIII and also wonder why people think poorly of it. So I liked her profile. In the quickmatches, you can't see names or send messages so after I liked her profile I jumped over to it again from the liked menu (fucking convoluted I know) and sent her a message.

"Anyone who thinks FFVIII is underrated has to be at least mildly awesome. Just wanted to share that."

So after I sent the message, I decided to go back and get a deeper look at her page, less skimming this time. It turns out I really gelled with a lot of stuff she had put up about herself and interests. For some reason while I was reading my phone bugged out so I restarted it and when it came back on, I went back to finish checking out her page, and this time take a look at the other photos she put up. 3 direct visits to her page.

About midnight I get this. "Looking at my page 3 times in under 24 hours. That's creepy Dude."

My reply. "Fair enough. I just felt you were interesting enough to look over again. I apologize"

Fesl free to critique, I honestly felt like what I said was really nice. Her reply really did feel like some grade school bullshit, like I'm a pervert for looking at her too many times or something and she's just like "oh my god, EWWW". It's probably more in my head than her meaning it like that, but regardless, how do you get annoyed by page visits? Are you not trying to find somebody? I'm dying for more page visits...I actually got (oddly) happy when I saw a dude visited my page. No I wasn't interested, but hey it's nice to see people looking.

As for the avatar I'm using, I'll put it up in the rl pics thread in a minute, it's kinda big and I don't wanna blow the Haps thread length up.

@Dice if you giggled,then my job was completed. If anyone else rolled their eyes with an elaborate groan, bonus points :)

Hell I like most of you here enough that in a public situation where someone accosted you or was getting physical I'd step in and make sure you weren't getting whacked. It's the only thing I can safely say I do well,  better than most anyway. I'm a real life tank.


Haha...tip.

Yeah. I kind of figured it was something tame. If there was a smiley emote at the end that you forgot to mention, even more so. I do actually think that you may have missed a chance to strike up a conversation (though you might still get a reply) . You could have wrote something along the lines of "I just found your profile interesting and though we have a lot in common, didn't mean to creep you out :)" Chances are she would respond with an "that's ok" and a possible opening for a conversation. If not, you move on and that's that. Don't get too caught up in feeling rejected. It's just how it works. Eventually you'll find someone who wants to play ball. Work on getting your confidence up.

No, nothing shocking about it. Obviously makes for good conversation fodder, though.

I'd like to think D is using the same avater he does here. Her reaction would make a lot more sense. ;D

He already mentioned that he almost went with the avatar, accidentally. Also mentioned something about staring at someone to the point of getting yelled at by his sister. That's why I asked about more details. Not that he's obligated in any way to go into detail.

Let's be honest, the subject matter is interesting and I'm stuck in traffic on a 5 hour bus trip that's looking closer to 6 now. Plus who knows, someone might end up giving him that winning tip, eventually.

Just the tip.

Well... That didn't take long. Looks like we have a winner!
