Keeping it real... I would love to get to know you and make you giggle and smile I am not looking for anything serious (check out my profile).
I will send picts via email if you like.
I live in the Carpentersville area and work in the Schaumburg area.
Hit me up if interested... because you piqued my interest!
hey! i think it's cool you're into fitness and video games. it's amazing to work the mind and the body ;) i see you like to explore a lot of things, like music and coding. my name's ----. i can't say i'd always rather participate than watch (i'd rather watch football than play), i think we could find some sort of middle ground =)
Ha, I have also read numerous wikipedia articles about works of fiction that I’m not going to get to. I am much better at making lists of books to read than I am at actually reading them, and I guess I want to know what happens in ‘important’ fiction so I’ll understand what people are talking about when they refer to them? God that seems shallow.
But what I really want to know is where I can get a laptop that I can use in the shower. (It’s possible that I’m misreading that sentence…)
Hey, how are you? I enjoyed reading your profile. So I am going to be completely frank, I would love to have a casual sex ongoing relationship. You are definitely my type so let me know if you are interested and we can see where it goes.

Hi, I live on Madison & Jefferson and looking for some cool people who are near and open for making new friends which might or might lead to FWB. Ideal first meeting would be - coffee, dinner, bar, nightclub, etc. Let me know!
hey there! hmmm yea i dont really have one of those witty/generic copy paste ice breaker...would rather just say hi. not really into selling my self digitally but i think we would get along well. soooo if you would like to get to know eachother feel free to write back. (i know this is awkward) have a good night -DJ
I don't play the bass, but I'd love to do a musical collaboration sometime. Or at least get coffee and see where things go.
hello there. My name is ----- and I would like to chat with you a little and learn your personality . If you want maybe I could take you out to dinner or show you my favorite quiet little beach. I am also ok with a simple night at home with take out and a movie. whatever suits our mood and is a fun atmosphere so we can get to know each other. I can't wait to hear back. :)
I just moved to downtown and thought I should look for some cool friends around. I am always open for friends or more (with benefits). Let me know if you want to give it a try and we can probably meet over drinks or dinner!
Hey. You seem as spontaneous and nerdy as I am. Whenever I go on the internet I find myself with endless tabs of random stimulating nonsense. If you do that too I think you'll be very easy to talk to :D
Helloo goofy goo, how are you? (did that rhyme? :)) Just bumped into your profile through Quickmatch. You sound like an interesting person, loved your style of writing, very simple and funny. Kudos! I moved here recently, and am looking for platonic friends! Can you use a new friend buddy? Glance through my profile may be, and if anything makes you laugh, drop me a Hello or some hint! :)
Finished college (like 3 years ago too) and "looking into grad school" as well. But we know what that really means. It means we're still looking for that thing that can get us out of bed, every day, and give us some sense of fulfillment.
I graduated with a degree in biology, didn't really want to do 4 more years of school. Been doin my own sort of science thing, if you ever want to meet up and talk shit or talk shop, lemme know.
Hi, how are you? I really liked your profile….especially that you seem super active. Me too! Anyways, I'd definitely love an opportunity to get to know you better. How was your weekend….anything fun? How's your week been so far?
Hey what's up? I'm pretty new to the site and ran across your profile, figured if say hi. I know you can see any pics of me, I didn't feel comfortable posting them out in the open on the site. I can definitely share pics with you though. If you're interested, hit me back and we can talk some more.
Well the first thing I need to say is that you're absolutely gorgeous! For starters my name is ------ and I'm drummer in an indie rock band and MUSIC is my passion. I'm also a HUGE art admirer and my Instagram is full of street art pics that I take all around the city. I also love checking out new restaurants and exploring the city. So with that said would you be down for hanging out some time?

I never respond to the messages, and I never include any of the information about the sender.
The title is called a dataplay because it's not really an experiment, because I have no hypothesis, method, etc. and it's not just a series of random observations, because I have limited many of the parameters of the data I'm receiving, and it's definitely play, because the data will probably be skewed, subjective, and lacking in any qualitative or quantitative merit.
The blog started after my girlfriend had complained (rightfully so) about all the weird unwanted attention she has to deal with from dudes everyday. By unwanted, I mean sexually aggressive or insulting in nature, not just hellos or things meant to start casual conversation between two people. I understood and empathized, but could never really know what she meant. I decided to find out for myself - although it is an imperfect model for the reality of being a girl, I think it will at least give me a glimpse.
