    this is just a humorous note.

    i logged into facebook, and someone's status was something like "stop poking me already and ask me for a date". it was one of those generic statuses that doesnt' say who it's referring to. i have over 500 friends (mostly hobbyists) and i just happened to see his. but then comments below from him were stuff like "no one gets to poke me anyway, hahahha"

    indirectly, this made me think of all the BS you see online about fixed sex roles. not the BS about people making assumptions about others, but the BS of people who tell you in advance, "oh, i'm XYZ" and if you actually explore, you find out that's not entirely true (often disappointing, since it can be a bait and switch".

    i've dated all over the map in terms of versatility, i laugh at the idea of the guys i've dated getting together to compare notes: "but he wasn't like THAT with me at all". i think it's a symptom of youth that people fix an activity into their identity, rather than let the dynamic chemistry of a relationship determine how things evolve.

    does anyone have any funny stories to share?

    I have always been of the mind that those who are not versatile are really denying themselves unimaginable pleasures. Then too there are probably a few who truly are one particular role. Where I would disagree is that this is primarily amongst the younger set. I have found (looking at my experience and past conversations) that more older guys are fixed. But I do agree that if you are fixed or settled in one way, you probably are missing out.
