Fishing hole for lonely singles

Thats what the FOO seems to be slowly transforming into.

I'm not lonely and I do not like fishing.
I prefer tossing sticks of water proof dynamite into the water and seeing what bits and pieces float up.

How so? There is only one Dateless Loser thread.

The rest are "Go Ahead, Ask ____ Anything" threads.

I don't understand how that would work. I think I'm the only one from Alabama who posts in Foo, unless you count Court and he's totally not my type.

It's OK to look at the menu as long as you go home to eat.




Just don't look at the children's menu.

{shrug} That's your opinion. If you don't like the threads you see, start something interesting.

ETA: And for the record...I barely posted in here before I had a BF. Now I post more often. Your logic is flawed.

I don't mind seeing flirting in Foo. In fact, I like it. It's when every single thread seems to be about that it starts getting annoying.

Every single thread? Are you referring to Foo? I see lots of references to poop, farting, and Crackerjab's boss's sister, but not a whole lot of flirting in these threads.

Unless you're referring to MV?

Logic is flawed because one person (you) out of many, many regulars has posted more since finding a boyfriend?

I don't think FOO is becoming more of a single's pool but more of a whiny place.

Fine and dandy, Mr. Sixty.

We might as well give them something to whine about.

And in a related story, the guy had his name legally changed to Catnip.
