my thoughts at 7pm

i just started reading sbr and so far……i’m mcloving it

Adventures in Dating

Well really more like Tinder-ing.

Just an update and some thoughts:

• I opened my profile Wednesday around 7pm.

• It had a few pics and one sentence. “No agendas just want to meet new people.” That’s all I put because I’m convinced no one reads it anyway.

• I was very liberal with my right-swiping. I figured it’s a numbers game and if I swiped right on a bunch I’d get a handful of matches. Also right-swiped some that I was iffy on but figured wth.

• Guys without any text whatsoever got automatically left-swiped. No matter how hot they were.

• Other auto left-swipes: holding a dead fish/deer/rabbit/etc, main pic is a kid, main pic is a quote, main pic is a motorcycle, all pics wearing sunglasses, all pics wearing a hat, no pics showing face, any pics naked.

• Within two hours I had 13 matches and 5 open conversations. By this morning I had 32 matches and 19 open conversations.

• Its overwhelming. Fun. But overwhelming.

• I’m not taking any of this as evidence of my attractiveness to men. I saw a quote somewhere to the effect of “a man can flat out hate your guts and still want to have sex with you.” I believe that for the most part.

• I hate that Tinder basically ignores your distance settings. One guy is twice the distance I set. Grrr.

If you are in a relationship and you are happy, then please feel free to laugh your ass off at my shenanigans. I would be.

I’d really rather be with a particular person, making our inside jokes, cuddling, having amazing sex…it just works with him. But he’s not ready and I need to be ok with that.

Ok I need to get ready for my date. Later gators.

“I broke my own heart.” She whispered.

“Why? You know it was his fault. He led you on.”

“No, he didn’t.I expected too much from him. I knew he couldn’t meet those expectations but I hoped anyway. I knew from the start I had no chance, but I kept going. I knew that if I kept talking to him, I’d fall harder. From the day I meet him, I knew he was the one for me so I gave it shot. Turns out, I only got my own heart broken. None of these was his fault. It was all mine.But loving him wasn’t my biggest mistake, hoping he’d love me back was.”

—  If only I listened, If only I never hoped. // 7pm thoughts

Wednesday, April 22nd 2015 // I’m about to head out to Uni and I won’t be back home until 7PM, so I thought I’d post my update now. This morning I wasn’t as productive as I should have been, but I wasn’t completely rubbish either! I got less pages done that I usually do, but that’s ok. I also started writing my study guide for Commercial Law - I pretty much include every topic I need to know for the exam in bullet point format. It will be super useful when I need to revise the whole program!

I’ll keep updating this as more people respond/I find asks that are not in the OBspec tag.

So here are my literal ideas on our elusive anon friend.

Many people think that happyjacq and/or cosima-geekmonkey-niehaus is behind this that could be the case although Casey seems to know nothing and is loving the hype.  Then again a lot of these people are her friends.  So any of these people could be up to something and sending anon messages to themselves to throw us off (Casey, I can’t take full credit for this idea).

I am a hopeful child and want to believe that it is OBTumblr or something official.  Has anyone else noticed that since OBspec started we have had no new photos from set, very few tweets from the cast and crew, and OBTumblr has been on the quiet side, maybe they’re up to something.

Why Shakespeare? Is it because the iambic pentameter and style of his writing is cryptic by nature? These quotes have similarities to Orphan Black. Twelfth Night and The Comedy of Errors are both about twins.  The former about assuming the life of your twin the later about mistaken identity.  These are scenarios that in Orphan Black are used dramatically but for the bard it creates humor. The Midsummer quote was said by Helena (although pronounced differently is the same name).  I don’t know Antony and Cleopatra at all and when it comes to theatre give me a musical or a modern straight play any day over Shakespeare it is not my thing.

Anyway these are my thoughts.  Happy OBspec-ing.  We’ll know more Tomorrow at 7pm!

I’m tagging the updates as “obspec breakdown update” if you’re interested in reblogs and I’m bold facing urls I add. Update 1Update 2, Update 3, Update 4, Update 5, Update 6, Update 7 (aka shitty mobile reblog)
