LQ Population


I was wondering what the population ratio of males to females is like on LQ. So I made up poll, choose male if your a guy, choose female if your a woman and I'm not sure, if you don't know.

Oh, come on. This is hardly a fair poll. You know that the majority of people that would bother to post on a poll are the regular posters, and you know that the majority of us are male, that said, it would be interesting to see how many people decide to opt for 'not sure'. He he.

Male or Female?

Jeez, now that is really a weird way to put it. Most people would just say men or women since we are, like, humans, but maybe you are just being politically correct.

And thank you Tricky, for pointing out the girlie thing. Such a much nicer thing to say if someone was trying to talk to me. AT least it is better than "Well hello there, female. You remind of a traffic ticket... you got fine written all over you"

And for those wondering, I actually had some dork give that line to me this weekend. Well, not the female part, but the traffic line.

Really makes me wonder who comes up with these lines.

Yeah, yeah I know this is a pretty dumb poll. I'm just trying to get my average post per day above 1.00.

Don't worry in the future you's guys and others will see much better threads than this from me in the near future.

Innie. Right handed. Nearsighted. Just like nearly everyone else.

That just about covers it.



Word,

Innie, right handed, and according to my optician I'm both long sighted and near sighted in both eyes!

As for the chat-up lines, I reckon Spike Milligan might have come up with a few in his time. What's the worst you've ever heard (either being used, or just a mate telling you)?

"Hi, you must be Fred Flintstone...you could make my Bedrock anytime"...<shudders>and she was a minger as well, did she really think the combination was gonna work?</shudders>

hehe! :-)

Well in fairness, a pickup line normally does not work, but there is an appropriate time to use them.

If the guy comes up and you two start talking about mutual interests, then jokingly saying one those stupid pick-up lines is more funny than obscene.

Most friends I know, including myself is not so apt to slap the guy or reject him then. This is because most gals like guys with a sense of humor, whether it be stupid or slapstick, or even obscene (in much rarer cases).

I cant believe I am giving dating advise to computer guys. Oh well... just doing my small part to help geeks get some

yeah i can see no harm when they make it obviously humorous. but the one mentioned above in my mind would never work. well at least if i was a girl. but i think at times if i ever was, i would be a very big tease, cause it would be so easy to do.

It is really easy to be a tease.... men are simply to easy to manipulate when they think sex is going to happen. Of course i dont put out like that, but I would use it to my advantage to ge them to buy me drinks.

But like I said in another post, I dont do that so much anymore. I started to realize that men do have feelings, and not every one of them should be treated like crap. I just needed to understand that most of them only care about sex and that is it.

But I can get in the mood to tease when I am at the right venue, or get a little alcohol in my system, but not drunk.
