    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?

    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.

    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.

    See, TMI.

    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.

    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.

    I gladly will await the day when a man doesn't want the generic cover of every Imagine FX/Exotique and other Fantasy girl books and decides that skin tone diversity is a wonderful thing.

    When that guy realizes and recognizes diversity in beauty and sees and likes what I have to offer, I'm keeping him.



    No I'm not out looking for a guy, that usually happens when I least expect it

    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!

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    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.

    More power to you, Nim. If you succeed here today then you've given hope to the masses of lonesome brethren.

    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.

    Well there's already tastebuds.fm, why not something art based? Well, there's DeviantArt.

    It'd be pretty easy for a girl to get a date on CA. just go through the "what made you depressed" thread and message all of the lonely guys!

    And really Nim, don't listen to the haters. Many times I've thought of making a thread like this but I never had the balls to. I salute you!

    Shoot, he's taken care of the educational aspect of being an artist. Partially covered the social aspect. New ground to cover would be romance for the artist.
