Mm. Welcome to life, yes. And people have wondered where all of these lovely insecurities I've been fighting my whole life come from. Lots of fun when the idea of someone wanting to date you is considered the highschool class joke or having strangers make mooing noises at you on the street.

Fortunately, I've always had sharp instincts for avoiding those type of men (it helps that I only date people who are friends or rapidly becoming friends and that I don't do one-night stands). And my revenge is living a life of not-very-quiet non-desperation now. :)

That I can relate to. I was never able to get a date in highschool (more "never" than now, even). I did once, and it turned out that it really was a joke set up by a bunch of the girls.

The girl who took the lead in that did at least have the good grace to (pretend to?) be ashamed of herself.

Oh, and I was incredibly skinny back then.

Sigh. I wish I could say I'd not heard of that particular joke being played before.

A bonus stupid fact in my case was that, even as I was constantly being teased and told I was undatable, I invariably had a boyfriend that none of them had ever met because he'd live out of state somewhere. I went to geek camp in the summers, you see.

So, you know that one kid who claims to have a boy or girlfriend "in Canada"? That was me, except it was true. :)

Oh, and I was incredibly skinny back then.

*looks at your current photo*

*adds in this data*

I suppose there's no accounting for taste, especially where highschool-aged normals are concerned. :P

I only wish we had such things as geek camps when I were a lad. The closest we had was a "creative arts camp" which just took about 50 of the more creative kids from the school off for a couple of days -- so no prospect of meeting anyone new there.

But at least I got to play with video kit, which is something.

I suppose there's no accounting for taste

Did I mention that not only was I skinny, I was well over 6' tall by the time I was 14?

But I wasn't into football, and I must've looked pretty weird with the wacky eye that doesn't work (and which is thus half-closed and pointing the wrong way most of the time), and the wacky eye that does work but which looks like it's looking somewhere other than where it's looking...

*And* until I hit 30 or so most women thought I was gay. Doubt that helped much. :)

*adds new data*

Hm, nope, still not having a problem with this. But then, I never claimed my ideas were in line with anyone else's. :)

A friend of mine who I think is especially cute is fond of telling me I have horrible taste in men. ;)

Did I mention that I'm not at all skinny now?

Comparing notes with syringavulgaris should tell you just how bad your taste in men really is, though Josh is really cool, so, I dunno...

Oh, and I like your prose style.

*shrug* You've got company. Which takes us back to Zoner's original topic nicely. :)

though Josh is really cool

I rather like him. That's why I decided to keep him. ;)

Oh, and I like your prose style.

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I've heard that such things are reasonably common in the Australian Army, too. Think it even got mentioned on the news a while back as one thing among a whole heap of bad behaviour.

I wish I could be shocked by that article, but it doesn't really surprise me much.
