Thursday Poll: for love or buggy

We probably should have run this one about a month ago to be timely, but this topic came up in the forums, and I’m in no position to turn down a decent poll idea at this point.

The topic this week is “buggy vs. relationships” or “relationships via buggy” depending on your perspective.  Out in the real world, if you say you’re regularly hanging out with someone before the sun rises, it would be fair to assume you’ve got something cooking.   At CMU, it’s probably safer to assume that your extracurricular activity of choice is buggy.  Whether it’s the hours you spent with people at buggy, or the hours you gave up when other people were making their moves, it seems that buggy and romance do not operate independently.  How did it work out for you? (or how is it working out currently?)

How did the intersection of buggy and romance work out for you? (Select up to 2)

  • You can't make good decisions with that little sleep and that many fumes (22%, 19 Votes)

  • Fine, except that I'm no longer attracted to girls taller than 5'2" (14%, 12 Votes)
  • We're a fraternity, what do you think we have women's teams for? (14%, 12 Votes)
  • Buggy people are my favorite people, I wouldn't date anyone else (13%, 11 Votes)
  • I never would have met Mr/s right if it weren't for buggy (11%, 9 Votes)
  • Buggy hookups were always great for me, but a little awkward for the team (5%, 4 Votes)
  • The carnival party was always fruitful, but I paid for it the rest of the year (5%, 4 Votes)

Total Voters: 56

Those options aren’t mutually exclusive, so I thought we’d try out the multiple-selections feature. Love is too complicated to sum up in multiple choice, so feel free to suggest better answers, and share your variations on “it’s complicated” in the comments.

  • Since leaving CMU I’ve found the pickup line “may I buckle your harness???” works poorly in bars

  • Next time you’re in Seattle I can show you a few bars where that line would come in handy. You’ll need to bring your own ball-gag, but I’m pretty sure Visconti left his chaps in our guest room, so you could borrow those.

  • Well both love and buggy worked fine for a semester and a few years after CMU. But alas it was not to be.

    Just like everything it can be good and it can be bad. I have seen it cause some definite problems.

  • I don’t know…. I seem to have lost a girlfriend or two over the fact that I leave her every weekend at 4am and go to bed at 10pm and every weeknight I’m doing midnights from 10:30-1:00, and would rather be wearing a respirator and getting carbon splinters than watch another episode of friends….
