I am writing a story for Go Triad about changes in dating, particularily dating in the Triad. If you want to sound off about this issue, please answer the questions below and email them to msbroome@hotmail.com. I will be quoting you, so please supply me with your full name, age, and occupation. If you don't want to answer all the questions, please be sure to let me know which questions you are answering in your email! The story is slated to run November 10th.


1. What is your full name, age, and occupation?

2. How many years have you been dating?

3. What is your definition of a date? How is a date different from "hooking up"?

4. Have you used technology to help you in your dating process? (Technology can include online dating services, networking sites like gay.com, Friendster.com, or orkut.com, chat rooms, weblogs like Livejournal, online personals sites, email, or any other computer application).

5. If you answered "yes" to question 4, which technologies have you used, were they successful, and what was your experience with them (positive or negative)?

6. What was your best date ever? What factors are essential in a good date?

7. What was your worst date ever? What made it the absolute worst?

8. How has dating changed since your parents' time? Are these changes positive or negative?

9. Do you think gender roles have changed in heterosexual dating? If so, how? (are women more likely to be the aggressor? Do couples split the bill instead of the man paying?, etc)

10. What major changes have you seen in the GLBT dating scene?

11. What constitutes a successful date? An unsuccessful one?

12. Are there any rules about sex on the first (or third) dates, or have those flown out the window?

13. Has dating etiquette changed, and if so, how?

14. How has advertising changed how you feel about dating?

15. Do you think advertising has an effect on where you date, who you date, or how often you date? If so, what has changed?

16. How do you meet someone you want to date? Where are good places to go to find potential dating partners?

17. Do you have a nonsexual dating partner (i.e., someone who go out to places and events with (club openings, weddings, theatre, concerts, etc), but have no romantic interest in?

18. How do you feel about speed dating? Do you know what it is?

19. Has television or film influenced your attitudes towards your dating partners (for example, many critics have pointed to "Sex and the City" and "The Man Show" as forces that have changed men and women's perceptions of men and sex)?

20. Please share any other thoughts you have about dating, sex, or sexuality and the way it has changed over the past 30 years.

Don't Patronize University General Store Inc. [Oct. 8th, 2004|12:23 pm]
[mood |angryangry]

If anyone does business at the University General Store on Mendenhall near UNCG you should reconsider.  I recently contacted them regarding the purchase of a keg of beer.  I was told I'd need to leave a $20 deposit to ensure that they would not sell it to anyone else before I picked it up.  When I left the deposit, the young lady working the counter assured me that the deposit was refundable in case I had to cancel the BBQ I was buying the keg for.  Indeed, I had to cancel because of hurricane Ivan.  When I called I was REassured that I could come in at anytime to get a refund.  Yesterday, I tried to get the refund and was told I had to talk with the owner, Chris.  I called Chris this morning and he refused to give me my refund even though his employee told me TWICE it was possible.  I even offered to compromise by accepting $20 worth of merchandise instead of cash and he hung up on me!  So anyone in the UNCG area who frequents this place should really reconsider.  There are tons of other stores nearby who need your business much more than this rude and callous business owner.  If you're looking for kegs, try these places first:

Trilogy @ 2618 Lawndale Dr.
West Market Street One Stop @ 5412-B West Market St.

I would just like to say thanks to everyone at QFS that has allowed me and Max to have a show this summer, I don't know about him, but it was one of the greatest experience of the summer.

I will do the show everytime I get the chance, but I will never have a first time again. And this was the greatest first time I could ask for.

I love you Erin and I will miss you when you go off to Maryland. I don't know what I will do without having you and Kelley to come into at 10 in the morning.

It has been a great time. Thanks again.

OFF The Air [Feb. 6th, 2004|02:29 pm]

[tunes |vnv nation- empires]

We are currently off the air due to freezing rain...
I tried to start up the station (as requested) at 2pm but the levels were wayyy lower than they needed to be.
So, we're tying again at 3pm... but otherwise check back this evening and hopefully we should be on the air.
