awww...thanks

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...

if a cat fucked a shark, the babies would be called women. snowklinger

He's made a lot of posts that piss off men too. He's kind of an equal-opportunity curmudgeon.

If you look for doll forums like an American Girl doll forum, you'll find tons of women. The member list is 30 people per page x 146 pages. 4,380 members!

Why can't we hold on to female members?

Well I'm one chick that's new to the forum but definitely will not be leaving it anytime soon. I chime in here and there and love reading all of the comments especially the smart ass ones. I guess some of the chick fall out here is due to giving up snowboarding, taking offense aka no sense of humor, or just not feeling the need to chime in. I am sure it depends on background too. I love winter... Snowboarding, snowmobiling, cc skiing, and ice fishing...... Oh yea and another awesome part about winter, throw on a beanie no fixing the hair! Do I shop? Online mostly for only the above hobbies not girly shit! Ophra... No way am I gonna sit my ass in front of the tv when I can be outside enjoying winter! Like Mixie my last two jobs (service manager at a snowmobile shop and outside sales at an auto parts store) consisted mostly of working with guys and its rather fun when you can shock the shit out of them by keeping up with their smart ass comments. As for the sandwich hell yeah this chick is making the sandwich and handing it off to the hubby. I do enjoy cooking, baking, and cleaning though. At the end of the day I also make sure he gets one last show of love, shazam! Don't give up on all of us chicks, some of us are around here to stay and have a great sense of humor!

He just wasn't very smart, average girls try harder.(not to say your average, I crept on your pics a bit. Yum Yum)

You're a pretty good boarder aren't ya mixie? Why do you think that is?
You probably put in 110% correct?
I'd imagine you're pretty ferocious in the sack & that's the way I like my women.
