One of several reactions resulted in some emails that are interesting, just a little later on,

A veritable blizzard of text messages over a two time duration, followed closely by an in-person conference. Nevertheless, it finished here (that is entirely appropriate – I appreciate the significance of chemistry such circumstances, and I also demonstrably was not just just exactly what your ex ended up being shopping for). A shame however, as we did actually share a number of similar passions, both non-sexual and sexual.

There was clearly less relationship because of the other girl whom reacted. We delivered a quick initial communications, she responded with a straight briefer message, We reacted with an extremely long message, she reacted with a really message that is brief. I am pouting and now haven’t yet answered, but We’ll achieve this sometime quickly. It really is just discouraging whenever I make real tries to explain myself and do not are able to see through the assumptions and generalizations and stereotypes we all have been vulnerable to make.

Some Miscellaneous AFF Findings

Recently I discovered that AFF has added the capacity to blog on the website, which will be kinda promising. We could expect that lots of associated with the blog sites are going to be one-dimensionally intimate (and most likely “based on a story that is true without getting too connected to the genuine truth), but on top of that i’m hoping to get at the least a few individuals who’ve invested a while providing an even more multi-dimensional image of on their own. I have copied over a number of my LJ entries to AFF, and also been composing some additional AFF-focused entries since well. We’ll publish them right here in LJ too, needless to say.

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

Every web site has its novel, interesting, enjoyable quirks, and AFF isn’t 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 biggest are 40×40, other people are 20×20, whereas LJ icons are 100×100) that users can cause, provide as gift suggestions to other people, or get from other people as presents or by “buying” (with AFF “points”, which you accumulate for different activities, like filling in your profile, developing a weblog, etc. ) AFF has generated this AFF-specific economy to encourage visitors to develop their pages, that is an idea that is smart.

Another psychologically smart function of “bling” is you must produce the bling yourself. This is certainly, you can’t simply upload a picture that is arbitrary you have to “draw” the bling yourself, employing a palette-based web-page for which you choose colors, simply simply click on squares representing pixels, draw lines, paint areas, etc. This is why the bling more “personalized”, but in addition implies that all the bling is quite simplistic and amateurish. Absolutely absolutely Nothing wrong with that though!

Needless to say, and even though we appreciate the reasons why AFF set things up that way, I’m waaaay too lazy/non-artistic to be making my personal bling. I will be, nevertheless, instead proficient at teh coding. After downloading the AFF web-pages that implement the editor that is bling de-obfuscating the javascript code, and pinpointing the javascript techniques necessary to improve colors and set pixels, I happened to be set for some AFF hacking. A couple of hours of coding produced a straightforward Perl system that takes an image that is arbitrary decreases it to 40×40, extracts the colour of each pixel, and yields a series of javascript function calls that sets 1600 pixels to appropriate colors. Way back when, we hacked up firefox to permit me personally to do stuff that firefox does not let me, and something thing that is such to permit us to perform an arbitrary javascript file in the context of a currently packed website (permitting us to programmatically emulate exactly the same tasks that an even more artistically inclined but less theoretically sophisticated person would perform: -)

The result among these couple of hours of hacking ended up being the capacity to upload an image that is arbitrary AFF, meaning that my number of bling went from 0 to 50 in an hour or so. And since my bling ended up being blatantly copied from LJ icons and sexy pics that are pr0n my collection is much more sophisticated than many, if i actually do state therefore myself. It really is quite feasible any particular one of your (non-proprietary) LJ icons has managed to make it into AFF bling, since I explored an individual icons of my flist to build up my initial group of bling.

Ironically sufficient, after creating all of this bling, We have actuallyn’t really troubled to make use of it for the intended function of attracting attention. Having which can myself that AFF’s tries to circumvent me personally from doing this were for naught, I became content: -) we’ve been too busy along with other items to focus much on AFF, and so the bling ended up being been collecting dirt. But, it really is designed for whenever we take to circular 3 of messaging girls that are interesting. We will see if some judiciously gifted bling involving witty sayings or esthetically pleasing imagery increase my reaction ratio: -)

My AFF Profile

Everybody knows just just how impossible it really is in summary ourselves on web-personals web web sites in a real method that accurately communicates to other people who we’re and what we are searching for. Composing a profile for AFF is not any exception, and because many females do not make the web site remotely really, its specially hard to attract the attention that is right.

When you look at the hopes that my brethren that are LJ manage to offer me with some feedback on the best way to enhance on my AFF profile, We’ve included it right here. In the event that you actually take care to read it, and also have any constructive critique, I’d sincerely like to hear it.

The things I’m shopping 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.

Nevertheless, the important points, as constantly, really are a wee little more. Included.

This website is undoubtedly rather centered on 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 maybe not trying to find “just sex”. I prefer liking the social people I communicate with sexually. I prefer creating a relationship according to trust and interaction and honesty and all sorts of that good stuff. I will be a multi-dimensional individual with a variety of passions (of which intercourse is simply one) and We quite definitely prefer getting together with other individuals who want in things besides simply intercourse. Needless to say, if you should be in a position to pursue other passions AND intercourse during the exact same time, that’s completely appropriate: -)

You and we both discover how hard it really is to “summarize” ourselves in a words that are few pages similar to this. My option would be never to work with a words that are”few, and alternatively write a lot 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 if you’re to locate a smart, innovative, truthful, intimate, communicative, uncommon male, I would appreciate you investing time reading more about me to help you determine when we are suitable as buddies and/or fans. Aside from the after ramblings, you could read more about me personally within my weblog.
