    It isn't stalking to have recognized someone fellas.

    pB, we have seen everything except your face here on SF, you dress in a fairly distinctive manner, and you've repeatedly described what you look like. I would be surprised if people didn't recognize you.

    What's funny is that I realized that I, too, would probably reflexively call you Patrick if I met you.

    I guess the question is "is pB the type of person to cheat?"! :smarmy:


    Wait, oh, I get it...:blush:


    w/ my mushy brain i find that seeing a person out of context takes me a couple of seconds/minutes to put it all together. i too saw uppr_crust, in a stream of folks pouring into the subway. maybe it was b/c he was wearing a smart snappy friday/summer casual get-up, but i had just a flash of recognition that only dawned on me a couple of mins later. i once saw gdl (this was before he took to posting chest shots) and only put it together by extrapolating based on nabe/wife/twins

    booth dresses very plainly, I think, very CBD. Solid blue and gray, white shirts, "business' ties. Not a criticism, but I'm not sure why that would stand out on the street.

    Yes, but that is almost a calling card. I see very few people walking down the street wearing well fitted, probably bespoke, classic CBD. That plus the hair (which is a pretty big tell) would make it pretty clear I think.

    Cannot test this in real life as I have met pB.

    Anyone who wears well-fitted clothes will stand out to me (especially in Boston, where everyone dresses like shit). It's not so much the eccentricity or boldness of the patterns / colors / designs that stand out to me, as it is the overall silhouette of the person and how their clothes drape on their bodies.

    I think pB resembles the young David Lynch avatar a while back. Particularly the hair and overall gestalt. Perhaps that's why he is easily identifiable.

    I creepy stalked vox. I was at a busy intersection and he was caddy-corner walking the opposite direction eating an ice cream cone. I thought it would be weird to try and chase him down and say hi. I just sent him a PM.

    Gdl was one of the people who asked me if I was standing in a certain place at a certain time. Sure enough it was me. Through the years people have said that I look like various people. It is usually, Charlie Sheen, or Kyle Maclachlan. I'm all nose and chin. As to my old avatar I have friends that thought it was me and my girlfriend because she somewhat resembles a a young Isabella Rosselini.

    Vox creepy stalks Gome and I. He lives vicariously through our chest hair, and cheesy bar coasters.
