Poll #1631786 Friday! Friday!! Friday!!!

eideteker -- I haven't dated since meeting someone online was scandalous. How does one do it? What do you need to know? What should one expect? Tips, tricks, or strategies? Based on personal experience...

Everyone dating online is apparently a wall-climbing wine enthusiast who likes fun. Make your profile stand out, but not too much. If you go the honest, witty route, you will end up with responses from nothing but weirdos.
2(33.3%)
When describing how awesome and action-packed your life is, make sure you imply that you have time for a relationship. If after describing how busy you are and the potential date asks when you could fit them in, have an answer beyond "I dunno."
1(16.7%)
Make sure you're good at carrying on an IM conversation. Frame your answers so that they lead to new questions or like responses. Do not accuse your potential date of being rude for not being engaged enough in your dead-end conversation.
0(0.0%)
Speaking of which, make a new IM handle for your online dating endeavor. You will want to be online at times when you're not being innundated with IMs from people who still want to carry on dead-end conversations with you after you called them rude.
0(0.0%)
Do not lie about your body type or use an outdated photo of when you were hotter, lie about whether or not you smoke (you look like a pussy when you admit you actually do), or brag about mundane things like the price of Coors Light cubes and Malibu Rum.
1(16.7%)
Make your first date for drinks, not dinner. If your date starts ordering water, it is not the time to suggest said Malibu Shots.
0(0.0%)
Do not suggest a movie for your first date. But if you do, do not reject standard bubblegum films (such as King Kong) on the complaint that they're "too long."
0(0.0%)
If your date calls in the afternoon before your plans complaining about a goddawful day in which she got a flat tire, a ticket and some other horseshit that has made her tired and cranky, do not pressure her into seeing you anway.
0(0.0%)
If she brings up a topic you have vested interest in, pay attention to verbal and noverbal cues to indicate you've gone beyond her understanding such as a glazed-over look or a comment like "wow, you know way more about Fantasy Football than I do."

renob423 -- why do people get so upset by not using turn signals? Check all that apply.

Because I can't read your fucking mind.

If you're going to shoulder your way into my lane, you could at least ask.
2(22.2%)
Granted, nearly everyone around me is in the running for the worst driver ever, but maybe if I knew why you were going so slow I'd give you some leeway.
3(33.3%)
So I know when your stupid ass is stopped in the left lane I should go around you.

renob423 -- do you use turn signals? do you ever not signal, like when nobody is around? do you need a signal on the freeway when nobody is close 2 u

Always.
1(33.3%)
Fuck no.
0(0.0%)
Most of the time, but if there is nobody around or behind me, I might skip it.
2(66.7%)

On that topic, when one does use their turn signal, it means:

Lookout! Here I come! What? I used my turn signal!
0(0.0%)
I intend to turn or change lanes when the opportunity presents itself.

The other day, the first thing I did in the morning was fill a plastic tube with cat shit and deliver it to someone who was happy to receive it. Other recent examples of how nothing is quite how I expected it to be:

I impulse-bought a cauliflower.

We crossed a rubicon of nerdiness by allowing our friend to join our weekly D&D game via webcam.

A friend is having his 30th birthday party tonight. It was going to start at 10 but his earlier plans changed so it can start at 9. I am a mere 3 years older than him and the idea of having a party start at 9 on a Friday seems outrageous to me.

I'm no longer annoyed that my company makes us charge our work-related expenses on our personal cards and then submit for reimbursment. More charges means more AmEx points, and more AmEx points means more Home Depot gift cards.
