    Extremely OT Discussion

    A friend and I were talking today about relationships that have started via Metafilter, Reddit, and other non-dating websites, and BFSSFG came up. Have any of you heard of or been involved in relationships/close friendships that started here on the forums? My $0.02 on the matter is that I met someone here who, over the last three months has become a close friend.

    Friendships hell yeah.

    In fact most everyone I've met through BF I'm friends with, and jdg is my homie.

    Relationships... I've honestly never been attracted to a girl I've met on a forum. (There aren't many, but every one I've met "IRL" is a total lame sucker)

    If I liked guys I'm sure things would be different, and this isn't commentary on the gender norms of internet forums, but I have a feeling lots of perfectly attractive guys use forums, where girls usually use forums differently and have to be more guarded when they use forums, especially when they meet people on them, like many online communities... also attractive girls have lots of ease in particular social situations that fulfill some of the needs(information reference and knowledge resource) that guys find easier to get online.

    I can't really give you much good input on that because I've never done anything physical with any girl I've met online... closest I've come was a relationship that was reignited through facebook, and we met as coworkers in college so facebook was just the means of communication to see each other again... might as well have been a cell number. We were only out of communication for maybe 3 years between knowing each other in school then not talking after graduation, and ****ing on the blow up mattress I put out for her when she came to visit. so that's not really enough time to compare it to people you meet through online communities.

    And take all of this with a grain of salt. I am not very often meeting romantic partners and I am often alone, by choice or ineptness at social situations, but I refuse to do the whole online dating thing because I feel like it wouldn't be special enough. Maybe I should just get over that and take advantage of all the hot seattle ass just waiting to get picked up online. Or maybe people like me are a valid and important part of the population in an increasingly networked world...

    In general; I think it can happen and there's nothing wrong with it... but both people have to be open to it, and that's a very rare occurance. When it happens, go for it!


























    So, who's the hottie?

    There is not hottie. I'm married. Just curious. As I said, some friendly discussion earlier had me wondering about this forum.

    I'm pretty sure a couple met on bikeforums because they were local and found out about rides on the commuter or the clydes forum.

    They got married. Unless I completely made that story up in my subconscious (I don't think I did), its true!

    Any single hot female (18-23yrs.) track racer types in St. Louis message me. Now.

    This.

    Seriously, if I see a girl riding a bike her level of attractiveness goes way up. Conversely, every time I see a hot girl in a (insert Lexus, BMW, etc.), their attractiveness goes down (not far, but it does go down). Unfortunately, I moved from the hot-bike-chick Mecca that is Chicago to the hot-luxury-sedan-chick Mecca that is Shreveport, LA. Terrible decision.

    Also, I'm pretty sure it's the OP's fault that there is now a ChristianMingle.com ad on BF.

    Christians like to mingle, too.

    Don't they?


    I'm just glad I met someone in college and got married. Otherwise, I'd still be single and have lots more time to ride my bike.

    I can think of two or three BF couples that got together through BF.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    It is threads like this one that send the females into hiding.

    And, I imagine, they bring the female impersonators out of hiding.

    Sorry about the ChristianMingle ad. Better than BigShot bikes though... There are a few besides Misskaz. Also, this isn't me trying to find someone. As I've said, I'm married. It was just a topic that came up between myself and a friend.

    I met a (now) very close friend off of Nikon forums. We both were into photography, biking, and a ton of other things.

    I also hung out with some BFSSFG homies not too long ago, I could see us becoming friends IRL
