I feel lonely
Is there anyone out there who is down-to-earth anymore? I'd just like someone to talk to about ... things. Hang out with. Show me a few sites or at least things to do. Yes, my imagination is that limited that I can't think of things to do by myself.

Yes, I'm "spamming" livejournal.

So screw me.

What exactly do you mean by "down to earth"? Like. . . normal?

I was thinking of possessing common sense used for the purpose of functioning in the world that most of us physically live in.

But that was just my take on things.

Pretty much, yeah.

Hard to argue with that succinct description. If someone asked me I'd stammer, be tentative, and wonder what the big deal is. "Down to earth" seems like pornography to me--I know it when I see it but I can't describe it. LOL

Someone who isn't flamingly gay or similarly limited.
Someone who doesn't only care isn't what they're wearing and going to bars.
Someone who doesn't smoke a pack a day and/or drink three beers every night.
Someone who can hold intellectual conversations and is easy going.
And, preferably, someone who is into programming, or a least gaming.

I'm okay with this, as long as I know you understand that drag queens fought in Stonewall, with molotov cocktails, while those of us with more masculine demeanors shook with fear and shame in the corners.

As for the rest: you just don't want to deal with a direct hedonist who squanders intellectual resources.

Or something.

What does smoking have to with anything? It doesn't make us less intelligent. (Despite the often correlation)

I think it's the "often correlation" that does it. From all of my experience with people that smoke, most of them are self-centered and stereotypical. Keyword here is "most"; not all. There are a few that are decent people but the odds are against it.

But then by the time you get to smoking a pack a day you probably don't have much attention for anything but smoking. For anything less than a pack a day and/or three beers a day I'll give the person some room to show that isn't all they're capable of.

Well, most of my friends in college I met standing outside the dorms smoking. And while some of them were odd...they were all quite intelligent. Their hands were usually just busy holding a cigarette as well.

Besides which, sometimes the inhale/exhale gives you time to think about what you're about to say.

I'm at just barely a pack a day. About 1 / hour.
