    What thing recently happened to give you an ego boost but resulted in an ego deflation?

    Or you can post the reverse - something that deflated your ego, but later turned out to be an ego booster in the end!

    I'll start with mine:

    Waking up to be nominated for MOTD...

    ...only to find that I'm being beat by an uncertified (but arguably very hot) profile. icon_razz.gif


    #firstworldproblem ... totally. ;)

    Talking to this girl at work
    She notices I been gaining muscle
    Compliments me a couple of times
    I return the compliment by telling her she looks great.
    Ask her when the babies due.
    She's not pregnant.

    boost: being stared at by a lot of people in the grocer today.

    Deflate: being told it was because I had blood on my scrubs.

    Boost: My old RJ Crush had finally responded to me, after quoting and courting his posts for a few months...

    Deflate: He told me very intelligently, certainly and surprisingly told me that I was an idiot for what I believed, and how dumb I was...

    Boost: An unnamed RJ member told me I was hot, engaged in multiple chats with me, and gave me his number.

    Deflation: When I called him, he pretended he had no idea who he was. I can only assume it was all an elaborate (and time-wasting) joke on his part.

    I hope he's dead now.

    I'm probably not the only guy hoping you burned your car seats and don't work in Autopsy.

    A friend and talented plumber needed to make a trip to Home Depot, I needed to pick up more Romex. Riding shotgun was a huge mistake. I had a hard time getting that smell out of my shorts.

    Being nominated several times but never getting more than one or two votes total. I know its because of photos, but still a bit disheartening.

    I oddly somehow won MOTD. The next day I inadvertently started some sort of flame war.

    I got more hate mail for the flame war than I did congratulating me for being MOTD.

    I also received some comments that I didn't deserve to be MOTD because I wasn't fit enough and didn't have a good enough story.

    Ego boosted, then deflated. I guess we all need to stay humble.

    I had a similar experience a few years back, though it was more me finding a cute boyish dyke who thru my beer goggles looked like a hot Latin muscle twink.

    She was cool about it and let me down gently icon_razz.gif

    I'll do the same if I see Dallasfan up for the vote. I also do not vote much anymore as about the only way I am familiar with anyone around here is if they are in the forums. If they are not, I probably have no idea who the guy is and it seems most of the time the ones up for the vote are not in the forums. I should look more at who is up there for the vote. I've missed some good guys over the last few months that I would have voted for. One that comes to mind is unfounded7, could have kicked myself for missing that one on the good guys here made motd, especially knowing his history of posts and opinions in the motd campaign threads. I did vote for Alphatrigger yesterday since we got to reward the smart and handsome men here.
