    I don't message profiles like that. However, I have become reluctant to message profiles of people who are intelligent but insecure. That usually just ends up being a waste of time. No, I'm not impressed by the fact that you take bong hits in between writing Dragonriders of Pern fan fiction.

    (I don't object to the fan fiction, I object to the bong hit because the inferior Fe motivation behind that is so transparent. I know exactly what that is about. Personally speaking, I'd rather form bonds with people by being interesting or funny than "edgy". "Edgy" is actually incredibly safe. A lot of normal people start to get over the need to appear "edgy" by their late twenties, anyway. )

    I'd say curiosity and self-esteem have become more important to me than encyclopedic knowledge.

    Ugh, party drugs, they're a completely appropriate way of ringing in the New Year. But I just can't deal with the after effects. It's not dramatic bad stuff, just the feeling of being off for days after. No more, till 2015.

    I'm thinking I need to go to the movies more cuz i actually pay attention to the movie. because what happens is I sit in the middle and people surround me and so I don't want to be rude and block someone's view or climb over people so I'm like eh, might aswell watch the movie. vs home I turn on a movie watch five minutes go do something else walk around the house a few dozen times and i don't pause it and so i end up not knowing what i watched was about.

    Why did the forces of the universe create ugly people? Are we just a foil for the better looking ones to make them look even more so? Its not like all pretty people are stupid or ugly people smart. There doesn't seem to be any compensation in life for having genes no one else wants. I once believed in the inherent beauty of all people. These days looking in the mirror, I wonder about that belief.

    One thing strikes me after reading the article. The author seems to be missing a key point in what's going on. She keeps writing increasingly horrible stuff both in the profile and the messages, and is perplexed at why men keep trying to meet her anyway. There's actually a very simple explanation.

    They are not taking her seriously.

    It's a thing, btw, men not taking women seriously. Women, too. It's culturally conditioned, and most people do it without realizing it. What the article's author is seeing is just a more obvious/extreme manifestation.

    All the men who wrote her thought she was hot, and instantly formed/projected an idea of what a "hot woman" is onto this imaginary person. Anything they can even remotely positively construe, they did. Anything they couldn't they simply dismissed. When she is suggesting she will give the men a mermaid tattoo or pull out their teeth, they are thinking it's a joke, and dismissing it. They are a little confused at what she is saying there, but what they think is going on is a hot woman joking/playing some confusing game, and if they just persevere and keep playing, they might get to have sex with her. The very fact that she keeps talking to them makes them think they have a chance to put their dick in her (especially given that most women on a dating site simply ignore most messages they receive, so ANY reply at all is construed as encouragement).

    I'm not saying that the author is wrong about the unfathomable stupidity of her audience. I'm just saying there's a factor she isn't considering. The men she is talking to ARE thinking with their penis, but they are dealing with a lot less horribleness than she thinks she's putting out there, and are simply dismissing the rest. Had they actually believed she was 100% dead serious about everything she said in her profile and messages, they would probably buzz off much sooner, but there's really no chance of that.

    And that's my two cents on the subject.

    Hey, I once believed the same thing! I believed that if I couldn't see it, then it was my problem and I just had to look harder.

    Boy was I wrong.

    I'm not sure that looking in the mirror should be shaking your confidence, no matter how ugly you think you are. I'm not going to try to contradict you -- I don't know what you look like, and besides, even if my opinion happens to differ, that doesn't change your own beauty standards or appearance. Inner beauty, however, IS a thing. Maybe you have some of that.

    HOWEVER, lacking outer beauty doesn't automatically endow one with inner beauty. And NOT everyone has it. In fact, I'm starting to think it's even more rare than physical beauty. But maybe that's just me.
    And that's my two cents on the subject.

    That's part of it. But I'm about to get even more cynical on your ass. I propose that if an identically "hot" profile was constructed, for a woman who actually appeared to have, like a soul, or a smidgin of intellect, said profile would receive LESS attention.
