"True Guy" vs "True Car": Stated badly
Saying it's hard to find a true guy is like saying it's hard to find a true car. Both statements make the same amount of sense. (No, this wasn't said to me directly)

I can't even parse that.

Someone's Encountr profile read (in part) that "It's hard to find a true guy". I'm saying that's like saying "It's hard to find a true car".

Yeah, I got _your_ point I just can't parse "true guy" - which I think _is_ your point.

Yeah. Also like saying "normal guy". What's normal? heheh

It *is* hard to find a true car.

Welcome back. :)

While I doubt it was the intended meaning, 'true' in the sense of 'honest, genuine' is a valid use of the word.

I guess he's been running into too many 'guys' who actually have vaginas. :-P

There are some of those; more likely he ran into plenty of dishonest ones... those abound.

... Have I been dishonest with you?
vaelynphi From: vaelynphi Date: March 20th, 2011 07:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't think you have. And I certainly can't imagine what you'd gain by doing so.

Yeah, only things to lose.
