First off, why am I at a gym? Lifting weights, no less?

I'd probably try to awkwardly laugh it off and then gtfo pronto before it gets more awkward. I'm not comfortable going I'M A DYKE SRY to people's faces.

Okay, where is the image in your icon from? A few friends of mine have used that image in a few places and I keep forgetting to ask them about it.

It's a character from a webcomic called Homestuck!

Homestuck is a blend of coming-of-age story, apocalypse story, and creation myth, a multimedia (text, image, Flash, music) tale in the form of a game (sometimes literally, in the case of the interactive installments) about a game, with a story that shamelessly flirts with the fourth wall (and beyond). It starts off slow but picks up speed, is full of quirky and lovable and hateable characters, and has a fandom that can be really nice and fun but is also incredibly immature and wanky as hell.

That's probably the best way to sum it up.

I assume you're talking to Kiraya...eh? Not me, right?

Er, yeah. xD I'm going to make it a point to wear BIG rainbow jewelry in there next time...

I think it probably depends on what those few sentences were.

"So, what's your name?" "How much do you weigh?" *Helps me weigh myself on one of those sliding scales.* -insert weight here- Wow, that's all you weigh? me: /heads toward the exit/ Him: Omgosh, are you leaving already? Are you serious?!?! Me: "Well I have a class right now, that wasn't a real work out anyway!" "Oh, alright. I'm in the military, blah blah blah, can I get your number?

The "how much do you weigh" would have me backing away real fast, I think.

It was /WEIRD/, but I was on the scale trying to weigh myself...

I know most females are touchy about discussing their weight, but I don't mind, really. But the fact that most females are touchy about weight, and he asked that without knowing me was quite odd!

Explain to him I have a boyfriend, and I'm not looking for new friends either. I wouldn't be rude about it, but I wouldn't 'make up an excuse' or get offended either.

I would find a way to passively move the subject onto another topic from handing out the phone number...more maybe bluntly. 3 or 4 sentences is too quick. 3 or 4 minutes, maybe. If he applies more pressure, then it's time to scoot.

Recently my boyfriend and I expressed our delight that being in a long-term committed relationship meant that we had a ready-made thing to say in situations like this. It puts a lot less pressure on social situations.

I don't like talking on the phone. I prefer talking online so I'll never exchange numbers. Maybe exchange emails if he's cute/not-creepy enough.

I put that I'd make an excuse, but being married is a reason, not an excuse.

If I was single and looking to date, I'd probably consider it depending on how cute/non creepy the dude is. I'd also probably give him my email address instead.

Men interested in me are murderer-rapists until proven otherwise.

Okay, maybe I'm not that paranoid. It did take nine months for my boyfriend of the past five years to convince me to let him in. I once agreed that during that time I had a big wall up to protect myself; he corrected me in that it was a castle with a moat and fire-breathing dragons.

I'm more trusting that I used to be, but I would never exchange numbers like that. Regardless of the fact that I am very much attached, (with no intention of straying from him,) I cannot imagine going down the relationship path with someone before being friends with them first.

Better safe than sorry. You never know with humans, hmm...

That wasn't completely serious... XD

I'm married. Exchanging phone numbers with a guy I just met wouldn't be appropriate if it's in an "interested-in-dating" kind of way. But if he's just friendly and wants to hook up as friends to chat more, I might give him my number (or get his).
25th-Sep-2011 03:55 am (UTC)
If he's just looking to make friends, then I'd definitely be cool with giving him my number.

If he's looking to date, it depends on my status in life. Obviously if I'm single and looking to date, I'll give it a shot and give him my number as long as he's not creepy.

And when I say number, I mean my google voice number :).

3 or 4 sentences? that's too fast. maaaaaybe if we exchanged more sentences and he seemed not like a douchebag.

Ok, the word "ladies" bothers me too... I don't know why I used it. I guess I see lots of people use it so I thought I'd appeal to other humans by using it. :'D Heh..
