does this mean that they think we are the stereotypical nerds who play games all day and surf the 'net? That we cant get girlfriends?

I think... no women using an internet dating service are going to look like that.

You'd be surprised at the type of people that are looking for 'good times' over the internet nowadays.

Anyone heard of MySpace (http://www.myspace.com)? It's wrath overtook my town a few months ago and people are randomly finding and hooking up with people all the time now.

Kind of annoys me, but to each his or her own.

Hey I love myspace! Haven't hooked up and I am not trying to hook up with anyone on it. I like finding past friends and interesting people.

The ads are kind of annoying, but that "busting at the seams" ad cracked me up. >_>

Same in MY area. Everyone seems to be getting it, and everyone at least knows a bunch of people who have it, even if they don't themselves. It's scary.

The thing at my college is called thefacebook.

I am actually a part of it, though I don't DO anything with it, but I know some people hook up through it...

Oh God, it's horrible here in Southern California. Almost everybody here(Read: everyone except me and a few of my friends) seem to have a myspace...it's annoying.

I admit I've given in myself, although I know some of my friends haven't. ^^;;

I have a MySpace account, but because some net friends wanted me to, certainly not to hook up with women... :/

I don't think I'd want a solely Net-based romantic relationship anyway.

I got it coz IRL friends of mine urged me to. I don't actually have any Net friends on it...

I love that last one, I laugh almost every time :D

See, the thing is, yes, they do. And the other thing is, most of those images are pretty damn good even for us with gfs/wifes/whatever else. I mean, if a straight guy sees a scantily clad chick, he won't really complain. And I know you weren't complaining jebbers ;) you were just checking to see if the rest of us noticed that.

It doesnt matter where you pick up women, bar or internet, same chances of being ugly.




I still laugh at people who use the internet though.

Another awesome thing with firefox is this (http://www.geocities.com/pierceive/adblock/) . Go to the instructions.txt (http://www.geocities.com/pierceive/adblock/-instructions.txt) and do what they say. It ROCKS! :D

Evidentily, I somehow erased the entire filter list for my Adblock, so it didn't block anything. Now I put back in the filters, and all is happy again.

But I miss my well-endowed virtual women...

I have to keep reminding myself that this is a PG-13 forum when I see stuff like this.

That being said, i'm sure she's a streight A student, loves cats, reading Tolkien, and listening to Strauss in her spare time.

Her ideal mate, is probably a 13 year old who lives at home, plays video games, posts at LucasForums, listens to Cradle Of Filth, loves Anime, and collects comic books.

You would have thought given that the average age of people on these forums is about 14, they would put up adverts to make the target audience go buy stuff.

There should be more adverts for starwars lego...

Wasn't there already a thread (http://66.90.64.18/showthread.php?s=&threadid=146033) about these ads recently? Perhaps someone could merge them... (*just a suggestion*)

But anyway... I'm sure the every one of girls that use this service all look exactly like the ones in the ads, too. Just sitting by the computer all alone... waiting for that perfect gamer to come along.

My point is that as a whole, members of this community are too young to be using the internet as a dating service, and therefore, the add is out of place.


AND the ads for this site, are kind of sleezy by mod/admin standards.

Follow me now?

i'm almost tempted to unblock the ads to find out who you guys are talking about... but i'm probably to young to be subjected to such things anyway... :D

S'alright, it was way at the bottom of the page, took me a while to find it. <_<

But yeah, it's funny because most of the girls, have implants. I don't know why it's funny, it just is. The funny is inexplicable.

I'd be interested if they actually posted real people, not slabs of meat with plastic surgery. Interested as in I wouldn't instantly block it, but I would still block it.


Real women > Barbie. Plastic doesn't always make it possible.

Firefox solves all my troubles. If a popup DOES appear, all I do is right click and "block images from...".
