    Well, it is February, so...

    A few questions! I know these questions tend to be rather personal, so feel free not to respond if you don't feel comfortable answering. ^_^

    • Are you currently in a relationship right now? If so, how did you first meet up with your SO?
    • If not in a relationship, is it because of disinterest or any other reason?
    • What qualities (either physical or personality-wise) do you tend to look for when considering whether to date someone?
    Basically, this is kind of the general relationship thread because why not. 8D

    Hey look a thread I should absolutely stay away from... welp whatever YOLO.

    I’m not in a relationship atm... Mostly because of disinterest but also because I can’t for the life of me seem to find someone that I really like where I live.

    I like to think I’m not picky in general stuff. All I really want is someone who is nice, somewhat goodlooking and somewhat smart... but there are a lot of little things that have to click too before I really get interested so I guess that counts as picky XD

    I can’t believe I replied to this tbh

    I'm currently not in a relationship and I'm pretty happy that way. While I do get lonely sometimes, I don't feel like I'm ready for a relationship yet. It probably doesn't help that I'm very picky with who I would even consider dating haha.

    I'd like someone who shares the same beliefs as me and has a similar sense of humour. Basically someone who I could also be really good friends with, because that's important in any relationship.

    Single here, I've had my fair share of awful relationships and honestly, they've kinda turned me off from seeing someone in a romantic sense. I'm not all that picky with who I'd date, it's just a matter if they'd want to date me. I sometimes feel lonely, but only because I kind of miss looking at someone and getting that feeling in my heart. But then I think about entering a relationship, I get grossed out, and I continue on with my life.

    That being said, I'm a sucker for platonic relationships. I love my friends more than anything in this world ;v;

    • Single
    • No disinterest from my end, but disinterest from that of others
    • I don't think I have any particulars insofar as personality qualities

    I'm not in a relationship right now, and I don't plan to enter one anytime soon. Considering I'm aromantic (to put it simply, I don't feel romantic attraction towards any gender), being in a relationship would be a huge waste of time. I'm more content with friendship than anything.

    But since it's Valentine's day soon... good luck to all the Single Pringles out there? I don't really know.

    I am not in a relationship. This is largely due to the fact that I don't know any girls my age well enough that I like that way. That is largely due to the fact that I go to an all-boys private school.

    I haven't ever really had a relationship that went further than texting 'I love you.' never kissed or dated or that stuff, partially for the reasons above, and partially because it's just not my thing. I just enjoy being in the company of a loved one. None of the other stuff matters much to me.

    In terms of WHAT I am attracted to, I tend to prefer 'cute' to what is typically considered 'sexy.' For appearance and behavior. Not that I will completely eliminate an option due to appearance, but it is a major factor. I want to love someone who I can support and make them feel better about themselves, or something like that. I don't know, I don't have much experience in this area, so I'll stop here to prevent making a fool of myself.

    Are you currently in a relationship right now? If so, how did you first meet up with your SO?

    Yes, I'm in a committed relationship with my Nintendo Switch. We got together in early January and are going strong. It let's me play games like BOTW and Splatoon 2, both of which have accumulated several hours of my love and effort.

    What qualities (either physical or personality-wise) do you tend to look for when considering whether to date someone?


    I like a console with good graphics and a fun selection of games to choose from. It needs to be versatile and able to entertain me whenever I desire. I also prefer for it to have a relatively long battery life, so it can handle my binge gaming tendencies.

    I have a boyfriend, though we often pretend that it isn't a thing since our parents think that we are too young for such a thing.
    I wish for a person that is good looking. (Though that isn't my top priority about a person) He has to be an overall nice person that has at least some intelligence and can think for himself. (This last one is probably that hardest one to find)

    I am not currently in a relationship. In fact, I've never been in a relationship or even been on a date before. I've never really been interested in anyone I know and I'd be to shy to pursue starting a relationship. I'm not that interested in a relationship right now anyway, though I do want to eventually get married and have children.

    It is kind of awkward, because I feel like a lot of my friends are getting married right and left. Even my best friend just proposed to his girlfriend just yesterday and yet here I am, never had a girlfriend before.

    I'm not currently in a relationship. School comes first. I'm not actively searching to be in one, however if it happens it happens.

    I have had a relationship before and I'm glad I had it and lost it. It was really eye opening to how I work with relationships. To say I'm a cautious person is an understatement.

    When it comes to seeking others for a relationship, I often see it as wrong to ask someone I just met out on a date and I also see it as wrong to ask someone out on a date that I know and potentially ruining the relationship we had. Since I am a perfectionist with my life, I avoid doing both. Because of this, even if I see someone I may like, I often avoid them. The one relationship I did have, I was way too shy/cautious to actually call it one and its what opened my eyes to the above mentioned faults.

    As for what I search for, I tend to look for strong, caring personalizes. I prefer others that can carry their own weight, be shy and genital yet are strong and forceful when they need be. I also look for those that share my own interests, but often times, that's secondary.

    I've been in a relationship for like, what, nine years or something? Geez. :P It might be seven or eight, actually. I think I remember going back to check and it wasn't actually as long as we thought, but we've both sort of lost track, I guess. We met on an old art site that isn't around anymore, and most of that time hasn't been in person.

    I'm not entirely sure how much physical appearance matters to me. I don't really feel any physical attraction to people and, in terms of just aesthetics, I'm not sure I really have any specific preferences. Personality-wise, I like someone who's funny and shares the same interests as me.

    yeah we met in a skype group and hit it off really quick, got together a couple months or so later

    What qualities (either physical or personality-wise) do you tend to look for when considering whether to date someone?

    I work across the street from a high-end candy shop, and as I walk into work this morning I see a line twenty people long waiting outside that shop's front door. I gaze out across the street and proudly declare "Look at all those suckers! Standing out in the cold waiting possibly for hours to buy chocolates for... for people who love them! I'm glad I don't need to... don't need to... don't need to cry because I'm doing great right now I really am stop looking at me like that!"

    Ugh. Singledom sucks, at least for me. I've had a few almost-relationships lately, but none have gotten off the ground. And as I look back on them on a case-by-case basis, I'm kind of glad? Each of them I can identify a particular fatal flaw in our match, so I'm not particularly sad because I know it wouldn't have worked, but big picture I want to get out of this rut. As an introvert, the easiest way for me to do that is to either wait to return to school next semester or go back to an ex, but as so many metaphors can colorfully describe, that's a terrible idea. Worst part of that is I think I already met and lost the love of my life. I hope I'm wrong or I hope she forgives me.

    Moving forward I suppose I look for someone who is quick-thinking and nerdy, who groans at or high-fives (really just notices) my puns and appreciates my haikus. I don't have much of a preconcieved preference for looks, but I lean toward ladies with health and thicccness. I might lean too close actually. I should work on that. But I won't.
