Also: I wonder what many SFers' profile photos look like—do they post their best WAYW fit? is it a photo of an ugly dress shoe? Moo's wife's breasts? SVB?!

I hate that FB now constitutes real life.

you dudes are all awkward as fuck

it is only as bad as you make the situation out to be.

spend more time outside. meeting through the internet is only half of it it even.
should be talking about other shit unless you're with a bigger group of enthusiasts/convention with people who really understand re: styleforum anniversary this may?

Do you really think so? Like, I'm not trying to suggest that it's awkward to actually meet people who are "from the internet"; but I know that I would feel a bit odd knowing that whoever it is that I'm meeting already has some preconceived notion of who I am, which is constructed strictly through my image and my writing on a forum about men's clothes.

Hell, that's an extremely particular, or narrow, context for a first impression. That is what's "awkward," I think. Just imagine someone stopping you in the street, or someone sending you a message on Facebook, or a not-so-close friend pulling you aside at a party, mentioning your presence on SF—they know you first and foremost through a men's fashion website in which people discuss "baller sneakers (over $300)," use phrases like "kop that," reference "goth ninja-" inspired looks without a hint of irony, and do other random shit that, in "everyday conversation," just doesn't make sense.

There's nothing wrong or uncool or weird about any of this, it's just an extremely unusual background for first impressions—or other social contexts—is all. Does that still sound awkward? Like I bet people here are chill as fuck in real life, but it's just a very unorthodox way of meeting somebody.

you're weird and awkward but i understand what you're trying to imply.

well actually i am not sure what you're implying because you close by saying that some people specifically use forums to meet people. UH NO

I don't know about you guys, but being solicited high-fives from another human dressed as an anime character (replete with big, goofy [foam? plastic?] head) is really unsettling. Unless you're into that sort of thing in which case, uh, yeah—enjoy?
yeah you're just awkward and weird.

I did?

I mean, yeah, that *does* happen, but I don't see where I said that...

My point is just that meeting people in real life—people who only knew you on SF, be they regular posters or lurkers—has the odd pretense of "oh shucks we already kinda know each other," because interaction on SF—be it passive-receptive or active—is its own sort of first impression. And it's an unusual sort of first impression. Nothing wrong with that, but for those who aren't accustomed it, it can be unsettling.

EDIT: Uh, whether or not you think I'm "weird" or "awkward," is ultimately up to you to decide, but seriously? I guess I'm not surprised someone thinks I write pretentiously. Is it because you can't handle a few m-dashes? Or italics? In any case, it's how I choose to write to make myself and my thoughts clear. I'm not in the business of agitating anyone (that's not really what I get off on), but I don't think I'm gonna change how I write anytime soon.
