Finkel will get lots of dates, and Alyssa will remain in internet infamy.
dudes, i don't think it's bad to be a dweeb. i just dont want to date someone i can't relate to. not an attack. more a cautionary tale.
She's whipped up a shitstorm and her name will be associated with this forever--her best hope is that it just moves down the Google results.
Man, I hope she is good at making coffee and copies because no editor is going to let her near a story without a name change first.
Either that, or they were looking to ruin her for years to come.
I guess I don't understand why others don't understand why the writer was "allowed" to do this. You couldn't design a better article to infuriate several key internet demographics. A controversial opinion by a female writer about nerds and dating? A big social media kerfluffle? Rage, clicks, comments, the mashing of keyboards, a trending topic?
Huh. The story's #5 on the reddit front page now (link to the gizmodo page, title "What did I learn? That you're a shallow bitch.").
Dude, those "minutes" are minutes not spent on your robot militia, and presumably nobody else is around to smell you, because, you know, you're insanely focused on your work and have no time for interruptions of any kind.
So when I see articles like this one, I cringe because were I -not- as confident as I currently am about the fact that I program 6502 assembly for fun, this kind of article would've driven me even further into my shell and reinforced my belief that the cool kids are a bunch of assholes, and aren't worth hanging out with anyway. Which is exactly what my mom used to tell me when I'd come home covered in bruises. The co-opting of "nerd culture" by kids who happen to play Xbox is just salt in the wound, but it's still annoying.
Wow, Gawker. Hope the pageviews this shitstorm generated were worth all the ill will and brand damage.
Suddenly she is insinuating that people need to be warned about the guy, and he has infiltrated himself into other dates. Does she think he is dating these women because they are people she sort of know? I don't get it, he plays magic so he is dangerous?
Oh God. Someone please explain what #NotRightForAlyssa means? I assume there's an Alyssa who's like a bitch or something? I must know.
Any guy will tell you that there’s nothing more unattractive than a drunk girl falling all over the place and having no idea how stupid she looks.
Watch YouTube personality Boogie2988's rant on this matter. He gets pretty passionate.
At dinner I got straight down to it. Did he still play? "Yes." Strike one. How often? "I'm preparing for a tournament this weekend." Strike two. Who did he hang out with? "I've met all my best friends through Magic." Strike three.
The real problem here might be that a thousand nerds just found out that even wealthy super-nerds aren't sex symbols. (All those "I ♥ NERDS" t-shirts lied to them!) It must be very upsetting to them to have their fantasies crushed like that.
Thanks for all the support internet. People want “my side” but it was really a complete non event. Go out on a date that’s kinda blah.
Next day the girl tweets me about what shes reading about me, my reply is merely a prophetic, “Remember to use your powers only for good”
She then texts me about serial killer dreams and I dont reply because I didnt think we had much chemistry. A couple days later I’m home
and I’m a bit bored and I know she works right by me and seemed like the sort of girl I should like so I text her about grabbing a bite
Since I know she works around the corner. An hour later we meet up and it quickly becomes clear I’m bored, she’s bored(I assume)
But its raining heavily out.Eventually I suggest we head out anyways and luckily I find a cab. We go our separate ways and never speak again
At that point I just thought she was a nice girl, which I still mostly think. God knows we’ve all made poor decisions in our lives.
Id like to thank everyone for their messages, and Im sorry I cant reply to them all – especially all the date requests from cute nerdy girls
To be honest the article doesnt really say anything bad except that she doesnt like guys who like magic?
The only thing I really quibble with it “hedge fund uniform” – I’m not sure what that is, but I doubt it includes jeans and boots.
@Jonnymagic00 This should read ‘texts’, not tweets #freudianslip
Meanwhile Harry is demanding more of my attention. He doesn’t understand how important the Internet is. yfrog.com/j217778429j
He is one fine looking cat though. Hide your kitty daughters! yfrog.com/mfqbevj
Sincerity begins at a little over 100 hours a week. You can probably get to 110 on a sustained basis, but it's hard. You have to get down to eating once a day, showering every other day, things of that sort to really get your life organized to work 110 hours a week.
