My first impression was fun. It was really fun to see people responding to you. I've been here since.
I found datalounge around 2002/2003 when I was still a babydyke in high school.
I was surreptitiously looking for any and every thing gay online so I could learn more about myself and my community.
I have to say that I was shocked at first. The humour and bitchiness here was very raw (at least it was back then, when it actually was funny here) and I wasn't prepared for it.
I came around and found and became comfortable with my inner snark because of you wonderful bitches, and grew to love Datalounge.
So 10 years later im still here. This site is kinda a shadow of it's former glory, but it's good enough that i'm still around, even if i've taken breaks from time to time.
