    tongue Is our forum being mistaken for a dating site?

    This is baffling, but funny.

    Well, when you click on it there are only ten items, as evidenced by it being tiny in the "most used" section. Maybe even clicking on it counts as searching it, thus increasing its value on the "most searched" tags. IDK.

    Curious. I don't see very many threads on the subject, at least on a very cursory inspection.

    I think it's kind of nice. That people are comfortable asking for relationship advice here reflects how strong the playground's sense of community is.

    I don't know what to think of it, except that I feel it's probably due to a very specific demographic inside this community...

    She was fine, and her babies got to find out that their mom was badass. I was traumatised.

    Indeed, at least two that I can think of. Plus the resulting spawn. That's not too shabby.

    No, our dating site is being mistaken for a forum.

    These days, GiantITP is being mistaken for an advertising site.
    Not to mention that a lot of Relationship Woes and Advice might be a factor in the dating thing.

    I figure that, conceptually, it's not much different from meeting romantic partners at any other hobby-organization, such as a renfair club, dnd group, sports team, musical ensemble, or book club. In that context, forum-dating shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

He may well be running around with flat out total immunity to harm, he does not walk outside without an entire bevy of defensive magics around him and enough magic items to buy himself a nation.
