Anyone use this?
but too late
i use it, i feel ambivalent about it
I've got way to strong opinions about music to date someone who was actually on the James Blunt mailing list.
and yeah, they are your oldest friendships. that's because that's how children and teens form bonds. you'll find you probably have mroe than music in common with those people.
it's just what they do. same as with football teams or favourite type of crisps or other unimportant things
it's very much a burn
you know what you're doing
but yeah, it's just as arbitrary as anything else. I don't think I'd like to go out with someone who had the exact same taste as me, it'd be boring.
well obviously it wouldn't just be based on music taste, you wouldn't jump into a relationship because you've both listened to Loveless a couple times. It's a starting point I guess. I suppose it's just a dating site for people who are more into music than most. Nothing wrong with that.
is using it to find people to go to gigs with.
becasue to me it would be a pretty good place to start..
no you're not. so why bother?
but them liking what you do like is surely more of a reason to, and the whole point of tastebuds is that it matches your mutual likes.
message pretty girls saying "radiohead?" and nothing else, and then go from there.
no need to thank me for this life-affirming advice, you're welcome.
I thought it was a serious music recommendation site. Officer...
There was only one age appropriate person on there in my area, and she'd already rejected me on OkCupid.
In summary, I give my Tastebuds experience Beady Eye/10
I've made an account but I haven't starting really using it yet, haven't decided if I will or not. The only messages I've gotten have been from woman in Brazil. Surprising amount of local people on it though. It's hard trusting something like this though, can't help but think of those HOT AND HORNY SINGLES IN YOUR AREA sidebar ads
and I've seen a few DIS men on there. A guy came over from Spain to meet me, but I didn't like him.
Tha'ts it really. Haven't logged on in a while.
Had booked Tgursday to Monday and expected to stay with me without meeting first. I told him he couldn't stay. Don't think that's harsh. I got him a hostel in Camden instead.
you have men flying from other countries for you and you throw them in hostels instead, take it to the doghouse thread :D. yeah i think that's fair enough, seems a bit forward really, having to spend a long weekend with someone you could potentially not get along with at all seems a bit off.
We talked on the phone a lot prior to him coming over. But still, he was completly different when we finally met. Just nothing there.
when you talk too much before meeting, you can end up building things up too much, and is pretty awful when it turns out to be wide of the mark.
But I agree with what you said earlier about music taste being important. I find someone's mutual love of music a really attractive quality.
imagine thinking that starting a friendship over mutual interests is a good idea.
I think it's pretty effective.
I just think having similar music taste is a nice base to start chatting to someone. To be fair, a lot of the people on there I've chatted to are insanely boring.
I'd say it's gone pretty well.
We nearly did a little partnership with them as a lot of DiSsers signed up from the thread and a few people 'got lucky' using it...apparently.
Like someone said above, having similar taste in music is a good way to break the ice on an otherwise awkward first date. I met a guy from Australian on there. On our first date, we went to see Mark Gardener from Ride. Show was great. We only dated for about a month until his visa ran out but didn't stay friends. No great loss.
The other guy I met on there was cute and had a great record collection but ended up being super needy and possessive so that didn't work out.
Sounds like he'd possibly fit in. Apart from the 'he's dated a girl' bit.

I think I meant great date. Mark Gardener was couching it as the Going Blank Again 20th anniversary tour... and played about four Ride songs. This was in San Francisco during Gay Pride weekend and he made some homophobic remarks. It was bizarre.
I don't see how we can't.
I'm glad I didn't end up going, just seems like a waste of time taking away everything that makes those Ride songs so great.
I had a lot of fun at the concert because I was on that date and many of my friends were also in attendance but the performance itself was disappointing as we were expecting to hear Going Blank Again in its entirety. We laughed it off as tickets were only $12... until the homophobic remarks started and a bunch of people stormed out in protest. It was truly bizarre.
pretty much everyone on it is really dull, and i know all the rest irl. in fact i live with my two top matches ://///
was really disappointed to find I knew my top two matches anyway from before signing up as they were ex-girlfriends :/
crace reveals his insecurities about his thinly veield not liking the same music as him.
that's why the are so many DiS users on there.
All I did was flirt with Joey Dubya & left my account inactive for 6months. Signed back in to see that someone I knew IRL has checked out my profile, promptly deleted it.
and it came up there are no other gays with compatible music taste
