    Whenever I use laidback, thats what I'd mean. I know everyone who's read my posts will say differently but anyone who knows me offline will tell you I'm one of the most laidback people on earth. I'm known for being "stoner-like". People describe me as a "stoner in conservative/preppy clothing".

    Not that all of this pleases me. Its kind of an insult because I hate giving the impression that I sit around, eating, toking it up all day but thats just my personality. So when I put "laidback" in my profiles, its more like a warning than a self-compliment.

    LMAO!!! But I also agree that not being a high-maintenance drama queen is prolly another indirect message some are trying to convey, since that's a behavior that really gets a lot of criticism these days.

    It puts me off a bit, too, like when someone describes himself as "masc" and "chill."

    The only thing I can figure out is that "chill" is the new "laidback." Otherwise I have no clue what it is supposed to mean when a guy says he is "chill."

    I'm actually more OCD than laidback, but I like Sedative's interpretation of the meaning.

    In less PC terms, those persons should perhaps describe themselves as not flamboyant or otherwise obviously gay , as laidback makes one sound lazy. I personally prefer intensity of life and interests. Engaging people, not someone who lets life roll over their back like a few loads a jiz at a bukkake.

    That is the way I take it. Does not like drama, takes things in stride, handles stress well, etc.. Like their "straight" peers (that is in itself a stereotype).

    I couldn't type 'laidback' in my profile without wonder who the hell I was writing about.

    I'm always looking for stuff to do, places to go, people to meet. When I see 'laidback'. I think, 'boring'. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Sometimes I think it's just another way of saying, "Please don't think that I am a cynical, bitchy drama queen."

    But sometimes it does indeed mean "laid-back" in the classical sense.... relaxed, mellow, even-keeled.

    I'm not certain, but I think it means that their mind's on their money and their money's on their mind.

    Definition of "laidback" from wikipedia"

    The term laid back is often used to describe a person who has a mild and easy-going personality.

    Why is this so hard for you to understand?

    probably because laidback sounds better than its alternative- a nervous, anxious, highstrung wreck. laidback implies you take nothing too seriously. but i agree, its said by too many, and they can't ALL be as chill as they suggest. besides which, the guy's i've known in life who are truly laid back are disconcertingly so... they really don't invest too much of themselves into anything or take much seriously... i wouldn't wanna date that- i think not as good a quality as many people champion it for being.

    Sometimes guys who describe themselves as laidback are actually very boring.......Personally, I prefer a guy who is curious about many things in life, and who gets up off the couch and does them.

    I find so many of the descriptors that guys use to describe themselves to be really arbitrary or vague to the point of being meaningless.
    I'd prefer to make my own personal judgments based on actual interaction with the guy, himself. It's like the terms: muscular, truly ripped, defined, average, etc., are things that I can determine from looking at the pictures (assuming that they are there and real). If the pictures don't exist, then I really don't believe self descriptors at all. The same applies to personality. If we communicate, then I'll make the assessment based on what they actually say as compared to how they describe themselves. It is a healthy skepticism. I expect no less when someone is communicating with me.
    One caveat here though is 'third party perceptions.' Having been in the unenviable position of being judged by people who had limited information, I don't simply believe someones assessment of someone else.
    Case in point: When I broke up with my ex (and then divorced), most of our mutual friends sided with him without ever speaking a word to me. They never heard any perspective of my point of view. Of what I was going through. Of the reasons for my actions. They only had his perspective. They have been eliminated from my life although they were completely integrated in it for over a decade. They never made the simple effort to ask me what was going on from my point of view. I don't need friends like this in my life.
    So I don't believe in judging people on generic descriptors that could be viewed as positives, negatives, or neutral attributes and are in the perspective of the individual.

    It is pretty funny. Just once, I'd like to read a profile description that says, "I'm a fat, feminine, uptight drama queen".

    Probably. Seems to me they want to relate to guys as guys and not as some convoluted conception of femininity. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Easy going might be a better word than laidback though. Laidback makes the person seem kinda lazy...
