    artist getting a girlfriend/boyfriend (through art)

    EDIT: Oh man haha reading this again was fun. For clarification I started a thread to find a girlfriend with ca-related interests in a rather awkward way. Thread turned into something of its own. Was renamed and now a couple of years laters I'll leave it at that.

    The fact that you post something like that on CA makes you look desperate and therefor puts you at the bottom of the ladder.
    Go to places where you might meet people with similar interests (irl I mean), you'll have more success there.

    I'm desperately thinking of something extremely witty to say, but I've run dry at the moment, just woke up.

    That said: Yo dawg, what the fuck?

    "Never regret thy fall from grace, O' spirit of Icarian flight, for the greatest tragedy of them all to face, is to never feel the burning bright"
    Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

    Weirder things have happened folks. I remember flirting going on in the what does EV look like thread, and there WAS a thread where people were posting nude pics of themselves (and hoping that no one would circulate...) I'm only really wondering if it counts as spam. That and if the aspergers mention was the right way to go.

    I'm confused... I thought he was just mentioning he has a small case of aspergers and might be socially challenged. I don't think it's wrong to mention that. I'm all for honest relationships.

    Looking for petite, dark haired, porcelain skinned girl.
    Must draw like Jeffery Jones, and school me in the ways of art and lovemaking.

    I take a pint of Mexican beer, an omelette with bell peppers and bacon in the morning.

    Honesty is nice, but adding that little detail in there makes it seem a bit more desperate than it needs to. If he's trying to get someone interested I think saving the revelations until after a connection is made would be best.

    The hell do i know. tired out of my skull.

    Good luck nim. If she's got a friend who for some reason lives in canada who doesn't have an aversion to body hair tell her to roam the wilderness looking for a short, Sasquatch-like creature. I prefer light tranquilizer darts and nets/snares with nylon rope.

    I though he wanted a girlfriend with a slight bit of aspergers.
    I was like, "Man, how picky and desperate is this guy?"

    I'm sorry nim, but you do come of as a little desperate. And what is obvious for you isn't nessesarily obvious for everyone else.
    I suggest you try a dating site

    Probably would've been better just to add a "(btw I'm single)" to your sketchbook thread title ;D

    lol seriously! Nim, your sketches are really nice!

    You're going about it all wrong, too. Short, hairy, Canadian? "Yo, baby, I'm like Wolverine without the claws."

    OK, maybe not that either.

    I would recommend going to some kind of course or something that has your interests to meet more people (and maybe that "special person").

    Oh and becoming my mentor to teach that lovely linework in your sketches.

    The good? You didn't post this on 4chan. The bad? It probably doesn't belong on CA... >_>

    There are much better venues, like those posting above me have said. Match.com, for example.

    Cut the guy some slack man!...Heck, after checking out his sketchbook I half wish I lived in Sweden...and was, you know, a girl.

    maybe it's something CA can think about... we have a RL pic thread, why not step it up a notch and add a classifieds section for dating.

    BTW I'm being sarcastic. I totally giggled throughout all the comments.

    Good luck Nim - not being sarcastic!
    Also - awesome work!

    Looks like love is in the air. Nim is laying down his moves, bowchicawowow. Oh yeah, let me see you work it work it, let me see you work it.

    Who's got the moves, Nim's got the moves. Ladies how can you resist, I barely can... that's it, I'm moving to Sweden

    Someone tell Manley to start up an artist social network/dating site.

    A really good friend of mine from years ago was an average-looking, average-earning nice enough but kind of surly guy who had AMAZING success with women. Well, not long term relationships maybe, but he dated a huge number of women, including quite a few professional models (he was a photographer, which helped). I know it wasn't just him bragging because I knew some of the women and heard it from them.

    When I asked him about it, he shrugged and said, "I ask them out." I got the impression really beautiful women rarely got approached except by Leisure-suit Larry types. Not that he only dated beautiful women.

    In fact, I'm the only woman I know he never hit on. That was a little...huh.

    Anyhow, great sketchbook, nim.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    You know, I reacted the same way everyone else did here... then actually remembered I met my girlfriend thanks to CA.org, and we've been happily together for 3 years now.


    ... I didn't make a post like this or anything, but it still happened... soooo....

    I find that the best way to get a girl is to go over and start drawing on their body. Hand, forearm, wherever. Once the initial shock wears off, and you finish drawing, they usually sound pleasantly surprised at how good the drawing is. Then you reply,

    "And that's only on your arm. Imagine what I could do on the rest of your body."
