Let’s Give It Up for the WTF

I love that somewhere out there in the world lives a person who uses precious minutes of their day to comment on reviews of Snow White and the Huntsman like this:

THANK YOU TO THE USA. ANY EVIL IS SIN. CHRISTIANS ARE NOT FUNDED AND THE END OF WORLD ALMOST HAPPEND. God will not support sin films. Earrings -source levitucus peirce. Non hip habitchual boring.

That’s Not Okay, Cupid: Online Dating Seduction Fails

One of the ways I’ve worked to increase my confidence while also having fun is dating casually. And nothing makes this experiment more like a good game of Russian Roulette than finding possible romantic interests on the internet. It’s a Gong Show out there, folks. Don’t go wandering alone without a good sense of humor and thick armor. Oh, and condoms. If you go into heat, package your meat.

I’m currently using the free (and rather great for seculars) dating site OKCupid to fetch possible mates from a population of over 1.5 million. I rather like it, and have met some very nice/sexy/awkward/off-putting/lovable people through it. Though if you think finding a worthy friend, fuckbuddy, or spouse in this large group would be easy, think again. We’re wading into the shallow end of the online dating pool here, folks. You’ll have to sift through characters like this:

And then there was my experience yesterday that gave me a bad case of the ragetweet:

OKCupid Fail

Because every woman who is mature about her sexuality, is not embarrassed of her fat body, and who enjoys sex must be totally okay with Neanderthalithic behavior like this, right? Because why wouldn’t she want it? The slut.

Welcome to the world of online dating.

How We Measure the Universe

Today has been wonderful so far: I gained a brand new niece (who comes with a side of sweet potatoes), and I learned the word “parallax.” It’s a shame this is not me niece’s name, but we can’t all be called nifty science terms.

…Or can we?

Enjoy the universe today!

So am I.

This person may not be me, but he or she is not alone.

It’s jarring to read my own secret (which is, admittedly, not much of a secret to my readers) on postsecret.com. Have you ever seen your secret(s) on that site? Do you have any secrets?
