It's sappy, but it's serious. Let's also do some polls. The answers to these are all grey-scale relative "kinda-sorta" in truth, but I'm going to "cap" the Law of the Excluded Middle on "yo' ass" in an "is you is or is you ain't my baby"-type scenario, not least in an attempt to see where people do draw the lines. Ignore communities and syndicated feeds; assume all questions are asked explicitly without regard to any factors which are not explicitly mentioned. You can always μ in the comments to unask badly-formed questions; the comments explaining the lines drawn are often as interesting as the decisions themselves. All info in confidence.
Do you consider yourself to have many Friends?
Do you regard yourself as generally open about the identity of your worst fear?
Do you consider at least 5% of your Friends to be the people you would like to be yourself?
Ignoring practicalities and existing partnerships, in a series of unrelated one-shot thought experiments, would you like to try to form a romantic relationship with more than 10% of your Friends?
Have you ever had a mental image of a Friend and not been able to immediately recall their username, on more than two occasions?
Unrelated, geekycool: I had a Crystal-Dome-from-The Crystal Maze dream last night; today, I discovered that EasyJet are running a Crystal-Dome-like "grab tickets from the wind machine" promotion in Euston Gardens, central London tomorrow. London folk, go have fun there for me. Unrelated two: first snow!
