once a very long time ago in the very dawn of message boards (1996 maybe?) I joined a tech support forum for some very specialized piece of equipment I used at work.
Being dumb and naieve I signed up with a female handle....and? After getting way too much attention and none of the help I needed I ended up going on a fucking date with a dude I met.
and? We met up for dinner and after ordering drinks he went to the restroom and never came back.....NO FUCKING JOKE. So you know chomps....you were WARNED. Im a fugly geeky tomboy...but hey the waitress felt bad and comped me my cocktail
so uh, lesson learned about declaring gender on forums? Wait...
