I don't know if this has been brought up in recent history, but one of the first things I remember from the official Offspring website is that love connection matchmaker thing where you could put in your name and e-mail and a few personal details and get matched up with another totally awesome Offspring fan.

I'm not sure how many true romances were spawned from that neat little setup, but it's kinda funny to think about how many couples actually got together because of the BBS. I can easily think of 8, and that's not even counting ones I'm unaware of or forgetting.

I don't remember this at all. It sounds very amusing, though.

That makes 9.

I remember this feature, but it was defunct by the time I actually started posting at the BBS.

Just because break responded and I've been waiting to see him, I gotta tell him that Pearl Jam is pretty good but not earth shattering.

Eight? I doubt I could manage to think of four.

Haha, I seem to recall some stuff like that but I don't think I used it.

No, but it'd be awesome if they remade it.

I don't remember either, but it's pretty cool!

And you are right about the couples. There have been so many of them, it's crazy.

Izie
01-08-2006, 02:35 AM
This I don't remember. But knowing me, it'd lead me into a lot of trouble, LOLZ.

Whoa, I didn't think I was that old.

I still have hope that a few people, maybe 1565, may have a clue what I'm talking about.

Izie
01-08-2006, 03:40 AM
That makes 9.

I bet I can count more.

(I missed those replies :()

Vera
01-08-2006, 04:22 AM
I remember that thing. I seem to recall my match was some dude with "pretty fly" on his nick. I didn't email him, I don't think so yeah. Or if I did, he never answered. It was silly.

I can count 9 couples who I know dated/are still dating. 12 if I count "flings" and Per's homosexual affair.

Paint_It_Black
01-08-2006, 04:35 AM
12? That means a possible 24 people. I'd struggle to name any 24 members of this bbs.

Tizzalicious
01-08-2006, 04:39 AM
I count 11 couples. Without flings. :o

Izie
01-08-2006, 04:42 AM
Tizz pwns.

Tizzalicious
01-08-2006, 04:45 AM
That was without Willem & Bella because they didn't meet on here, and without TOM & COG (Because they ARE NOT A BBS COUPLE!!!!)

Vera
01-08-2006, 05:02 AM
Oh, I didn't count TOM&COG either.

And PiB, you assume that some people haven't dated BBS people twice... Wait, let me do a recount.

I got 10 this time. Though it really depends on how you count. I count all know I knew have gone "steady" at some point. Except TOM&COG, they don't count.

This is a pretty romantic bbs; I feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Paint_It_Black
01-08-2006, 05:05 AM
I did consider that, that's why I said something like potentially 24 people. Even if some of those are bbs bicycles it's still a lot of people. Someone should actually make a list, unless the people on the list would rather not be named. I'm pretty curious.

Tizzalicious
01-08-2006, 05:19 AM
Half of my list are doubles :o

Edit: And I won't make a list, exactly for the reason that I don't know who wants to be named and who doesn't.

Vera
01-08-2006, 05:30 AM
LOLZ just found out about a new couple.

*wins*

Sunny
01-08-2006, 06:42 AM
i remember it! ha.

wheelchairman
01-08-2006, 09:30 AM
I can think of 11 as well. Sans the same ones that tizz left out.

wheelchairman
01-08-2006, 09:47 AM
oh wait forgot 2.

01-08-2006, 09:47 AM
Anyone care to list said BBS couples? I want to see what you guys came up with.

HornyPope
01-08-2006, 10:30 AM
Would they like have to meet to be count as a couple? Because then Sanni and Dush don't count.

And I think you forgot to count Shaw. He had two. The stud.

(i shouldnt throw names... but its shaw!)

Tizzalicious
01-08-2006, 10:35 AM
I totally forgot those!

Anyways, I forgot to actually say that I remember that match making thing.

Vera
01-08-2006, 11:35 AM
I have never been involved with RXP in any way, ever.

Please stop suggesting I have. Even in jest.

BATWT
01-08-2006, 11:46 AM
Whatever happened to RXP?

BATWT
01-08-2006, 11:52 AM
Erm... Dush is still on MSN, but the board was taking far too much of his time. Plus some ppl pissed him off. He's right... sometimes it's slagging fest around here.

Fair enough. Hey, give him my email next time he's on. I used to get along with him

ruroken
01-08-2006, 11:56 AM

BATWT
01-08-2006, 11:56 AM
I thought I could. Bless you.

Vera
01-08-2006, 12:09 PM
Oh, I like Dush fine, we've had our differences, plenty of them actually and just that tells you we definitely aren't a match made in heaven. We're still buddies, though.

I'm not repulsed by the thought but I don't exactly like it because I couldn't imagine a) doing any long distance dating or b) doing any long distance dating with him.

01-08-2006, 12:47 PM
RXP & Vera? Well, that made me laugh a little but when I think again it sounds like a cute couple. Still, I think Vera is, I don't know, kinda harsh and a little smart for him. But I can't say anything certain, I don't know both of them very well.

sKratch

Vera and RXP, sitting in a tree
C-Y-B-E-R-I-N-G

Betty
01-08-2006, 01:06 PM
I just thought of the most retarded thing: "Sanni and Dush, sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G..." God, I hate kids sometimes. I'm just bugging, couldn't resist.

There are clearly 2 or 3 that I don't know about, or have forgotten about.

Most of the ones I thought of were totally public though. Only one I would hesitate to mention. And maybe a couple others due only to the fact that it was in the past and they may not particularly wanna discuss it.

EDIT: Fuck you, sKratch.

sKratch
01-08-2006, 01:20 PM
What time's good for you?

Endymion
01-08-2006, 01:41 PM
there was me and sunny, me and sam, me and sanni, me and izies, me and bella, me and michelle, me and tizz, me and bleak, me and joan of arc...

HornyPope
01-08-2006, 02:24 PM
There's more than "three or four" you're forgetting about. We combined the info... and wow.

TheUnholyNightbringer
01-08-2006, 02:24 PM

(i shouldnt throw names... but its shaw!)

Which Shaw?

HornyPope
01-08-2006, 02:34 PM
The older one. And apperantly he had three.

TheUnholyNightbringer
01-08-2006, 02:34 PM
He did?!

PM information, kthx.

JoY
01-08-2006, 03:03 PM
I clearly remember him being involved with Gem, but I'm sure you do too.

that made a creepy picture, to be honest. :/

TheUnholyNightbringer
01-08-2006, 03:04 PM
Gem? Shit, there's a FOURTH?! Who's Gem?

HornyPope
01-08-2006, 03:05 PM
Gem = Zaynep = Zen = noodles_lover

wheelchairman
01-08-2006, 03:06 PM

I'm still rather shocked. The plebs don't know what they are missing.

TheUnholyNightbringer
01-08-2006, 03:06 PM
Gem = Zaynep = Zen = noodles_lover

Ah, yeah, I know that one.

JoY
01-08-2006, 03:07 PM
..we ARE talking about the same Shaw, aren't we?

her name in English was Gem. she came from Turkey & in her own inferior (*wink*) language it was something totally different. but yeah, her actual name. she called herself Gem, though. totally forgot what her username was.

god, I should've left that bottle of wine alone. but it looked so ronery!

Endymion
01-08-2006, 03:07 PM
all the sudden i'm saddened by not being in a bbs relationship.

TheUnholyNightbringer
01-08-2006, 03:08 PM
HP's explained. And yes, we're talking about Steve.

When he first said Shaw and mentioned 2 flings, I thought "... did I?"

JoY
01-08-2006, 03:09 PM
no, YOU, baby Dave, have had about a thousand.

TheUnholyNightbringer
01-08-2006, 03:10 PM
"... did I?"

Wow, I'm such a stud that I forget all my flings.

Little_Miss_1565
01-08-2006, 05:49 PM
I still have hope that a few people, maybe 1565, may have a clue what I'm talking about.

Yup, I do! I remember being really sad I didn't get matched with anyone, and then they took it away... :'(

TheUnholyNightbringer
01-08-2006, 05:49 PM
1565, I'm left too! Wanna make out?

Little_Miss_1565
01-08-2006, 05:54 PM
Only if you're going to go all the way, because I'm totally left out of the loop with all these BBS relationships and I think I have to shag one in order to find out!

TheUnholyNightbringer
01-08-2006, 05:54 PM
It's a wonderful world of, like, e-net relationships.

=O PM sex! *dies*

BREAK
01-08-2006, 10:24 PM

Shut up, you like Dream Theater. Also, you're 4 years too late.

sKratch
01-08-2006, 10:30 PM
I like a lot of their songs. In fact, they have a bunch of amazing songs. By "not earth shattering" I didn't mean to play them down. Too many old covers though.

BREAK
01-08-2006, 10:42 PM
That's cool. I just think it's weird that I still hold the title of "#1 PJ FAN 4EVER DUDE!!!!" in spite of Ozy's & JohnnyNemesis' best efforts.

sKratch
01-08-2006, 11:27 PM
It randomly ocurred to me that you used to plug them like crazy, and I've been listening to a lot of their stuff lately. I wonder what Freud would say.

You can kill it, we already charted everything important :)

I can't believe no one has mentioned Matt Vore yet.

*cracks up*

He had a crush on everyone with a vagina.

Izie
01-09-2006, 01:52 AM
OH NOES WE MISSED IT.

Ok, time to PM Per.

Tizzalicious
01-09-2006, 02:22 AM
What was the hungarian girl's name that Steve was with?

Izie
01-09-2006, 02:48 AM
Amy? And isn't she on it?

Tizzalicious
01-09-2006, 02:54 AM
I don't think so!

Izie
01-09-2006, 03:08 AM
You're right, she's not!

Betty
01-09-2006, 05:05 AM
Hahahaha... Matt Vore.

That made me think of Kittypryde... I recall her being involved in some sorta drama, but I have no idea what it was.

wheelchairman
01-09-2006, 07:05 AM
Hahahaha... Matt Vore.

I think it was that nobody liked her.

Izie
01-09-2006, 07:05 AM
She's still on LJ, no?

wheelchairman
01-09-2006, 07:20 AM
Yeah she's replied in the community.

Endymion
01-09-2006, 08:04 AM
i talk to her sometimes. it's difficult because she's obsessed with my chemical romance.

Rag Doll
01-09-2006, 09:20 AM
Yeah, she's called me a bunch of times. But the only topic of conversation is MCR and Gerard Way.

sKratch
01-09-2006, 10:46 AM
Is she still a lesbian?
