Man it is a love fest in here.

Any letters GAF even close to the KY area?

And seriously, how do I get to the discord server.

I have mixed feelings on the gay taxonomy, it just seems so unnecessary and in some aspects, exclusionary.
It is really ugly IMO. It lumps everyone into fetishes over body type and personality traits. I don't mind it for a quick joke but it becomes more sinister when it comes to long term relationships.

While "twink" and "bear" as social designators are new, post sexual revolution terms seemingly perpetuated by the pornography industry, we've categorized things in the English speaking gay culture from the beginning of the English language. I've always wondered why that is.

Like I just learned that that 🐻 started out as a joke by The Advocate in a literal gay taxonomy article.

Okay Letters Gaf?

We got any artists in the house? I need to have a visual Character sheet made up for my new RP character and Id love to be able to pay someone on Gaf if they have some artistic talent.

Like if you need that copy of Mario Odyssee or something :)

Just thought I would try.
Hey, I do art and I'd love to help. Just message me the details.

So I had to let a guy down today on FB because he wanted a relationship and I don't want to do a long distance relationship after my failed attempts at it. He is a sweetheart and all but I don't think I should go there again. Feel a bit like shit for doing it but its pretty much for the best.

In other news Dead by Daylight is still slaying my soul and Freddy Krueger is out this week.

In other other news get into St. Vincent "Masseduction"

That's a respectable decision. It probably is for the best (you never know). Feeling like shit seems normal if he's that sweet.

You playing on console? I just fixed my PC after three months. DBD is the game I've been playing the most with my friend.

Last night I got mega frustrated with it, though, haha. Consecutive shitty games where I'm found within 5-15 seconds of the match starting. Got to me bad.

I'm your state neighbor! That counts for something right? When I log onto discord later I'll ask Will to post a link for you, and anyone others that would like to join.

PC version actually. Did you forget the day we played and we sucked? Yesterday was a pretty good day actually. Managed to survive 7/9 games and managed to do some decent jukes. I suck against The Huntress and Leatherface but Im learning to be more sneaky and also being a bit of a douche when the killer finds me I run towards other players to get him away from me. Mind you Im still a team player and do my saves and heals but I make Dwight live up to the standards of being a bit of a scared leader. The game decided it was a good idea to delete my data so I had to level up again but thankfully it went quickly and got my cute Dwight to 40 pretty fast. Thinking if I should do Claudette again or Meg.

Edit: One of the games I actually spawned in fromt of the killer but either he was distracted or something that he didnt go chasing me and I managed to escape from there. Then again the rank reset helps you get some easy rounds ar times afterall.

My friends were telling me the other day that they were trying to categorize me and I was like why... can't I just be me?

They settled on cub though lmao.

Like bear + otter? I plan on losing weight after Halloween so I think all accusations of bear will be gone.

Nah, baby, I didn't forget. I just never saw you online/playing! I would have invited you to join us.

Apparently that's a bug and you could contact the devs and they'd give your account bloodpoints so you can get back to snuff. Lol, I never send the killer to other teammates because I like trying to lose him fair and square.

I got Dwight to 50 and am now doing Claudette. I think after her I'll do David. He's totally my type of guy, too, like Dwight 😍

Can you blame anyone for liking Dwight?

Dwight will go 50, Claudette or Meg then David, then Nea and the rest if I remember to do them. My build will be a Leader, Prove Thyself, Dead Hard and Self Care. You got a specific build?

My current build on Dwight is Prove Thyself, Leader, Resilience, and Spine Chill. I should change out Leader, though. It's damn useful with Prove Thyself when you have survivors with you, though. Like, really good. I ran Lightweight 3 but subbed it out with Resilience because I kept getting caught, anyway =/.

Dream Dwight build would be Prove Thyself, Self Care... and I'm not sure about the other two.

For David I already have an interesting one I want to try: the perk that won't let you be healed and you start injured, Resilience (9% on all actions while injured), the one from Jake that won't make a sound when injured, and maybe This is not Happening (bigger Great skill check success zones while injured). I'm not too well-versed in all the perks yet. There's a lot, but David's seem fun to mix with others that maybe aren't used much.

That reminds me how in other languages we don't really have terms for some of the labels we have in english. For example in Spanish we don't have an equivalent for Twink. At least I've never heard of one? and I've asked around and no one knows. It seems the term twink among us spanish speakers doesn't really exist, among other terms. We do have an equivalent for Bear (Oso) and Otter (which I've been told is Osito - a diminutive of Oso in Spanish).

Spanish-speaking lettersgaf, and other languages-other-than-english lettersgaf, is there an equivalent in your language for most "gay" labels?



??
Ectomorfo? Lol

That David perk is terrible tho. Despite the no blood stain and no moaning the 1 hit thing really makes it harder to play with. I mean when the killers are chainsaw users the health doesnt matter but when its with others you are cutting your chances of escaping more.

Sprint burst is a good one that can help you escape from the killer cause that sprint really gives good jukes. Borrowed Time is an all time favorite even if nerfed and Iron Will is actually pretty decent too if you want a better chance of escape from the killer when grabbed. I don't run decisive strike cause that I fail it more than I get it😂

Excellent news! Exciting! Hopefully it went well =)
Yeah my family all seem pretty understanding and happy for me, though I’m not telling my grandparents unless I end up in a serious relationship. For context, I (m) broke up with my partner of 5 years (f) after our relationship had kinda lost its intimacy. Which was around 3 weeks ago. I have long identified as bi, but had never really seen the point in coming out since I was kinda in a straight relationship. However I went on a couple of dates to get me out of the house, one of which on last Sunday turned out to be with a trans guy, who I felt incredibly comfortable with. Obviously it’s wayyyyyy too early to tell, but it put me in an introspective mood, and it got me thinking that if it did turn into something, or I met someone else who happened not to be a woman, I would hate to have to sneak around or hide it. I think pansexual kinda makes more sense to me now, because after giving it some thought I just don’t care what gender or sexuality someone is.

Also, I have a second date hopefully this weekend 😊

This makes my heart happy. Extremely glad it went well! Sounds like you have a fantastic support system! Just do what makes you, and only you happy.

Best of luck on the second date! =)

LMAO its the truth. Its the most bullshit excuse but I like to think I can use it as a logical explanation for exercise.

I'm exhausted. I went to the gym earlier... debating on either going again tonight or just go ahead and go to bed. Being old sucks.
