    People that use the term "long term relationship" instead of the girlfriend/married divide are obviously not yuppies but liberal intellectuals/reds, sorry.

    Your info is outdated. Those people call what I described "partner" now, regardless of legal/religious/longevity status.


    That's actually a funny term to use casually. I may start doing so. "Bill, it's good to meet you. I hope we can do some work together. Oh, how rude of me. This is my lover, Genevieve"

    I'm scared to know "what I am" based on this thread. I know I'm not a hipster but I don't think I'm a yuppie either...

    I'm definitely not a "person Matt used to hump"...yet.

    If you work in consulting you are a yuppie.

    I wanted to phrase this like a Jeff Foxworthy joke, but didn't want to put the effort into it.

    I mostly text and make/receive calls. The Blackberry has both a touchscreen and a keyboard making texting much less of a hassle. Not much of a tech fran to be honest. Blackberries are also less prone to shattering, which is a nice plus.

    Blackberry is very retro so that puts you in hipster territory right there.

    I don't do brunch but on Saturday I do like to start my lunch at 11:30 and end it around 4 after two or three bottles of wine. Am I doing it wrong?

    Nah. No self respecting hipster would be without an iPhone.
