    Well, the problem has less to do with me. I would have dated someone, it's just... the school I was at. It's hard to really describe the culture, but my undergrad school is a very small Presbyterian university. Something like 98% of the student body is Christian, and most are very Christian. You just don't get to have 4 month relationships there - everyone evaluates everyone as whether or not they're marriage potential, or potential for a lengthy relationship. It seriously got fucking annoying. So I'm glad I'm moving on.

    ^Sounds like my college experience. I called it the pressure cooker. Most people are fine with minute rice, but nah...these guys...they want a full meal? Pfffft. ;)

    Haha I sometimes think I will end up the same, with a bunch of cats. But a woman at my work is like that, never had a boyfriend in her life actually and she is the most miserable and judgemental person I know and I am determined not to turn out like her :p eventually we will all find someone just right for all of us... Hopefully.. Just need to surround yourself with the things you love and you will find someone with common interests. But for the moment I'm just enjoy doing what I want, when I want. Freedom! :D

    Online dating? Never. I made an OKCupid account, went "this is stupid" and never once used it.

    Dating online? Also never. That said, I seem to attract crazies, as I have had several girls fall in love with me despite them barely even knowing me. I guess I'm just cute like that? That said, they were all super insane and stalkerish. So that was fun.

    I suppose I should just get a real girl or something, but I don't know where to buy one.

    You could date yourself with that flowing long hair.

    I'll be going to Columbia, living in Brooklyn. I've lived in New York for 2 years, so I know a lot of hip places to get delicious craft beers. Are you doing the dorm thing?

    Columbia? D: For what? I know people there. By which I mostly mean professors... my friend was considering going there for grad school, but ultimately turned it down. She's really happy where she is now, though.

    Hum, for the record, and to try to keep things loosely on track, I can say that I form relationships with people online, and I'm completely happy with it, for what my life is like now. There are plans to meet, but not quite yet. I think a lot of people I know don't get it at all, but it can be wonderfully fulfilling.

    Nah, the dorms are ridiculously expensive, considering the location of the school. I have a roommate all set up already, and I'm actually going out there in a few weeks to look for places. I think we're either going to be living in Washington Heights, or somewhere in Brooklyn.
