So many good ones... that is definitely a list of win. I'll admit that I was pleased to see myself at that top of that list. :mrgreen:

Some I enjoyed that were not already covered:

"Beautiful people, my ass." -- AntiM

"My wrecking bar is great for (non-rebar) stakes, so fortunately all I need are the grips." -- Savannah

"Grow some facial hair it may help with the gender confusion" - tatonka

I like that last one because of FossaFerox and Lonesomebri's reaction to it. Really showed their characters.

- Make it clear that you're "chill."
- List important experience such as "traveling" and "roadtripping."
- Indicate that you speak French, especially Quebecois -- excuse me, Québécois -- French.

The "chill" really gets me. I don't know what it means. I especially don't know what it means when it is applied to oneself.

It's an 80's California thing. Nobody knows what it means.

I think it started as an admonishment: "chill out!" quit complaining, quit being agitated, like cool off, or take it easy, and then became a positive adjective to describe the resulting state. Now it describes a personality, one who is not dramatic, or overly reactive, being even tempered. Chill space, is another variant, but on playa I think that also has a temperature contrast going on: a quiet calm, and shaded place, where one can become or rest chill. It is used as a demarcation now, almost like cool used to be, as one who is easily accepted into a group of like minded people.

"Like-minded" is another one that seems undescriptive to me. "Single serial killer seeks like minded woman 22 to 27 for long walks on the beach, roller coaster rides, and taxidermy adventures."

How strange in a fictional sense, the idea of serial killers finding soulmates, perhaps instead of prey.

This is a great sig! Does it ever weird you guys out to be quoted by stalkers you don't know?
We were hoping you'd be offended.
