Travels so much, never has time for a relationship
To quote mine own sister, "He's a cakeboy..."
Isn't she lovely!
When my best friend was a kid - some thirty or so years ago - his mom took him to see a movie. While they were there he saw some men behaving strangely. They were a bit loud and...flamboyant. He asked his mother about the 'funny nen' and she said - rather archly -
"Darling, they're men who make hats."
...as if that explained everything.
Ironic that not so many years later my friend would himself become a "man who made hats".
R7, my mother used that phrase in reference to me. I overheard her several times telling her lady friends, "Oh, he doesn't date much, he's artistic." Of course, with her Southern drawl, it sounded more like "autistic."
Fucking hilarious r111. A lot of imagination went into avoiding the word homosexual or gay.
R111's story reminds us why a lot of guys refuse to apply the gay label to themselves.

I love "men who make hats"!
I grew up in a small town. There was a man that worked all his life at the local men's story and seemed a bit of a dandy. As a kid, I picked up on his being a bit different.
I think my mother understood I was curious about the man different than the farmers. He was not like the banker, the doctor or the other men
She told me that she did not want me to end up like him, adding, he lives with his mother.
Queer as a plaid rabbit.
I have a feeling the "Men who make hats" actually were milliners.

R149 Oh, my God! That's horrible!
In the wrong line at the post office.
R149, that is beyond the pale. Some things will never be ok to use as a punch line, and that is one of them. Just a shitty thing to do, especially by our own community. (although honestly if you're a straight asshole trolling the datalounge, fuck off and go to hell)

She's a Martina Navratilova fan

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
