One of several reactions resulted in some interesting e-mails and, just a little later on,

A veritable blizzard of texts over a two time duration, followed closely by a meeting that is in-person. Nevertheless, it ended here (which can be totally acceptable – we appreciate the significance of chemistry in such circumstances, and I also demonstrably was not exactly exactly what your ex had been to locate). A shame however, as we did actually share many different comparable interests, both sexual and non-sexual.

There is less relationship using the other woman whom reacted. We delivered a quick initial communications, she reacted with a straight briefer message, I reacted with an extremely long message, she reacted with a really message that is brief. I am pouting while havingn’t yet answered, but I’ll achieve this sometime soon. It is only difficult whenever We make real tries to explain myself plus don’t have the ability to see through the presumptions and generalizations and stereotypes we all have been vulnerable to make.

Some Miscellaneous AFF Findings

Not long ago I knew that AFF has added the capability to blog on the website, that is kinda promising. We could expect that lots of of this blog sites will likely to be one-dimensionally intimate (and most likely “based for a story that is true without getting too connected to the genuine truth), but at exactly the same time i hope to locate at minimum some people who possess invested a while providing an even more multi-dimensional image of on their own. I have copied over a few of my LJ entries to AFF, and also been composing some additional entries that are AFF-focused well. We’ll upload them right here in LJ too, needless to say.

I am quite fascinated with the variety and imagination shown by the large number of web-personals sites.

Every web web web site has its novel, interesting, enjoyable quirks, and AFF is not any exclusion. A typical example of this is exactly what AFF calls “bling”. They are tiny icons (much smaller compared to LJ icons though – the greatest are 40×40, other people are 20×20, whereas LJ icons are 100×100) that people can cause, provide as gift suggestions to other people, or obtain from other people as presents or by “buying” (with AFF “points”, which you accumulate for assorted tasks, like completing your profile, developing a weblog, etc. ) AFF has established this AFF-specific economy to encourage visitors to develop their pages, that is an idea that is smart.

Another feature that is psychologically smart of” is you need to produce the bling yourself. This is certainly, you cannot simply upload an arbitrary photo, you have to “draw” the bling yourself, utilizing a palette-based web-page where you choose colors, simply simply click on squares representing pixels, draw lines, paint areas, etc. This will make the bling more “personalized”, but additionally ensures that almost all of the bling is pretty simplistic and amateurish. Nothing wrong with this however!

Needless to say, and even though I appreciate the main reasons why AFF set things up this means, I’m waaaay too lazy/non-artistic to be making personal bling. I’m, nonetheless, instead proficient at teh coding. After downloading the AFF web-pages that implement the bling editor, de-obfuscating the javascript code, and pinpointing the javascript techniques necessary to alter colors and set pixels, I became set for some AFF hacking. Several hours of coding produced an easy Perl system that takes an arbitrary image, decreases it to 40×40, extracts the colour of any pixel, and creates a series of javascript function calls that sets 1600 pixels to appropriate colors. Sometime ago, we hacked up firefox to permit me personally to do things which firefox doesn’t let me, plus one such thing is to permit us to perform an arbitrary javascript file in the context of an currently packed website (permitting us to programmatically emulate exactly the same tasks that a far more artistically inclined but less theoretically sophisticated individual would perform: -)

The result among these few hours of hacking had been the capability to upload an image that is arbitrary AFF, which means my number of bling went from 0 to 50 in one hour. And because my bling ended up being blatantly copied from LJ icons and sexy pics that are pr0n my collection is much more advanced than many, if i really do state therefore myself. It’s quite feasible this one of your (non-proprietary) LJ icons has managed to make it into AFF bling, since We explored the consumer icons of my flist to amass my initial group of bling.

Ironically sufficient, after producing all this work bling, We haven’t really troubled to make use of it because of its purpose that is intended of attention. Having shown to myself that AFF’s attempts to circumvent me personally from doing this were for naught, I became content: -) we’ve been too busy with other items to focus much on AFF, therefore the bling ended up being been collecting dirt. Nonetheless, it really is designed for whenever we take to circular 3 of messaging interesting girls. We are going to see if some judiciously gifted bling involving witty sayings or esthetically pleasing imagery increase my reaction ratio: -)

My AFF Profile

Everyone knows just exactly how impossible it really is to close out ourselves on web-personals web web web sites in method that accurately communicates to other individuals who our company is and everything we are seeking. Writing a profile for AFF is not any exclusion, and because many females do not make the web site remotely really, it really is specially tough to attract the attention that is right.

Into the hopes that my brethren that are LJ have the ability to offer me personally with a few feedback on how best to enhance on my AFF profile, I’ve included it right right here. In the event that you actually take time to read it, and also have any constructive critique, I would sincerely like to hear it.

The things I’m hunting for is stop simple to spell it out as a whole: i am in search of kindred spirits; those who share beside me comparable philosophies about life, and social relationships, and intercourse.

But, the facts, as constantly, are a wee little more. Included.

This web site is undoubtedly instead dedicated to intercourse, which will be, within one method, a thing that is good because all of us like intercourse. Having said that, i will be actually maybe perhaps maybe not looking “simply sex”. I love liking the individuals I communicate with sexually. I prefer developing a relationship according to trust and interaction and honesty and all sorts of that good stuff. I will be a person that is multi-dimensional a lot of different interests (of which intercourse is merely one) and We quite definitely prefer getting together with other people who have an interest in things besides simply intercourse. Needless to say, if you’re in a position to pursue other passions AND intercourse during the time that is same that’s completely appropriate: -)

You and we both understand how hard its to “summarize” ourselves in a couple of words on pages similar to this. My option would be not to make use of a “few words”, and rather compose plenty of them. Regrettably, in an impatient mood, you are almost certain to just zoom past this profile because it is too much effort to read if I happen to have caught you. I am aware that, but so you can decide if we are compatible as friends and/or lovers if you are looking for an intelligent, creative, honest, sexual, communicative, unusual male, I’d appreciate you spending some time reading more about me. Aside from the after ramblings, it is possible to find out more about me personally during my weblog.
