Tanishh: Big Beef Burrito: I guess this is that .01% of times that internet dating goes wrong.

CSB time: My brother, who lives in NYC, once met a girl on OKCupid at a restaurant for a first date. They're talking about different stuff and getting to know each other, and he randomly decides to ask if she's right or left handed. She replies that "I don't really have a choice" and it's at this point that he realizes that she has only one hand.

Shortly after this, she asks my brother what his father does for a living. My father is a hand surgeon and he relatively commonly reattaches severed hands. I'm serious. At that point, the date could've gone in either a very good direction or a very bad one. The girl thought my brother was making fun of her, so needless to say, it did not go well.

/Not nearly as bad as this, but I'd definitely put it under the 'online dating gone wrong' category

what_now: One of my besties- a smart, accomplished, successful, attorney will often throw some crap in a trash bag if she's traveling by car. She has very nice luggage, she's just such a slob that she doesn't bother with it.


Trash bag luggage may lack class, but is awesome if you have a lot of stuff with you.

Double bag it, then use a vacuum to suck all the air out and tie. Immediate 50-70% decrease in volume. Couldn't have moved cross country in my tiny little car without this trick. Most of your clothing is air.

Of course, it will all be wrinkled as hell afterward.

theMagni: what_now: Mad Scientist: Trash bag luggage: Red Flag #1.

One of my besties- a smart, accomplished, successful, attorney will often throw some crap in a trash bag if she's traveling by car. She has very nice luggage, she's just such a slob that she doesn't bother with it.

I love her very much, but I will *never* share a hotel room with her again. After 24hrs it looks like the suite in The Hangover.

Trash bags look like trash. Luggage looks valuable.

I don't put my dive gear in containers that say "DIVE GEAR: VALUABLE! DO NOT STEAL!" They're labelled "Kid's clothes Age 3". (That's what the containers were used for previously, I left the tape on.)

And if that's how she uses a hotel room, that's how it's done. If she tips okay, what's the problem?


@what_now: You can take the attorney out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the attorney?

@theMagni: Luggage goes in the trunk or is secured in some fashion. Using trash bags as luggage makes you look like trash. re: your dive gear, you put it in containers suitable for the task, no? How they're labeled is not the point here. If you carry your fins, tanks and regulator in a trash bag, it's not going to last long. And, lastly, if that's how ghetto attorney uses a hotel room, so be it. But if what_now wants to stay in a more or less tidy hotel room, I see nothing wrong with choosing not to room with her bestie/slob friend, either.

Mad Scientist: Trash bag luggage: Red Flag #1.


Bringing a kid for me would be Red Flag #1 - Red Flag #25. Just say "call me back when you lose that 150 pounds".

One thing I don't get is all the hate about finding people online. I'm guessing when the phone was invented having "phone calls" with potential dates seemed weird. I think online is a great dating tool - you'll meet people you never would have met otherwise.

Besides, what means does someone past their schooling have to meet women? Work? F*ck that. Church? Double f*ck that. Some social group? At my age the only women you meet at social groups are the married and the heinous. Blind date? Almost a myth (who sets people up for blind dates anymore?). Bar? Jeebus.

So this new technology - which allows one to TALK to someone directly WHILE seeing them on camera...sounds like a horrible way to meet someone?

And for the liars/players/weirdos online? Sh*t, I met plenty of those while dating well before the internet was created. Anyone can lie - anyone. In person, by phone, online...anyone can deceive you.

That's sad. I feel bad for him. He was just really lonely. Hopefully he can find somebody non crazy if he's not scared of looking.

Big Beef Burrito: H31N0US: Dear fark: please create a seperate florida tag for anything north west of I-75.

Thank you.

My initial assumption was that this was Polk County.


North-western Pasco. Although admittedly it does have more than a few resemblances to Polk...

Could have been worse. She could have married and divorced him.

Man, that's a rough story. Hope he heals -physically and mentally.

The dating scene scares the hell out of me. I think I'll bring my wife some flowers tonight.

How many of you farkers would let a homeless women you just met move in with you like this cos you were lonely?

OK now how many of you would let her move in if you thought you might get sex from it?

How did that turn out for you?

Mine was a yearlong instant messenger courtship with some pictures and phone calls thrown in from time to time. When he finally came to see me, we were engaged in a week and a half. It would have been sooner but he was waiting for our trip to the city rose garden to propose.

We've been married for just shy of eight and a half years. I gladly moved to Norway to live with this man I met online. Neither of us can imagine life without the other. So yeah, I definitely don't get all the hate for finding people online.

I would only let a woman move in with me if she had her own home and we'd already had sexy time enough times for me to know whether it was worth the adjustments required for successful cohabitation.

I lost my virginity to a girl I met on an AOL chatroom. I was 18, she was 19. I thought she was hot, but I found an old picture of her recently and she was kinda gross.

ScottRiqui: I wish I had saved it, but I bought a box of kitchen trash bags years ago that had pictures of suggested uses on the back. One of them was a well-dressed professional-looking lady carrying a 13-gallon trash bag like a tote bag.


That's pretty funny. Would like to have seen that.

What some GIS results for trash bag tote may look like

Yes, the containers are large rigid waterproof rubbermaid containers (2'x3'x1') pretty much perfect for transporting the gear and keeping salt water out of my car.

You know, I didn't even think of the "protecting contents" angle, you're right, it'll (badum-tshh) trash her clothes pretty quickly.

Pretty sure this has already been on the Fark twice.

If she had her own home, why would she want to move in with you?


Let's let Fark decide:

A) we're getting more serious about our relationship and think cohabitation is a good half-step toward marriage.
B) easier access to my freakishly large johnson.
C) easier access to my freakishly small johnson.
D) my mom's basement is awesomer than her place.

I went out with this girl I met on OkCupid who was GLUED to her phone. She took 2the phone calls during our dinner date, and when she wasn't yacking she was texting. I ordered the most expensive meal on the menu, had 5 $12 cocktails, and then said I was going to the bathroom and ditched her with the check.

Reminds me of the scene in Natural Born Killers where the old Indian tells the snake story. Short recap: an Indian Chief finds a rattle snake freezing to death in the snow. He feels sorry for it, so he takes the almost frozen snake in and warms it by the fire. The snake then bites him, and as he lays there dying, he asks the snake: "why?"

The snake replies: "you knew what I was when you took me in."
