Why do people on emailing lists think I'm a guy?

Does anyone know of a single male who would spell their name Andi with an "i"?

I...don't think so.

I just posted asking for energy advice and got told that I "obviously need a good woman."


Ok, I'm bisexual...but I neither need a man or a woman any more than I need a goldfish, or perhaps a multicolored tricycle. Or a pink-colored cupcake.

You people and your quaint little categories.

I just don't get people. I don't get why people would "need' people, let alone people of a particular gender. O_O

I realize that I am a self declared omnisexual and am also fairly asexual, but... yeah.

I don't get people. I'd say "humans" but that feels so arrogant and species-centric. ^_^;

People. Yes. I don't get people.

hehe, people are funny! A lot of people think I am a guy online because I come over "tough". (so they say)

That...is hilarious. You have always "pinged" female to me. But I pay attention to more than words; I pay attention to energy.

I sometimes get stuff like that too... I shorten my name to "Ash" a lot and I've had a few people think I was a guy for it. >.>;;

Of course it could also be that so many people still believe that 'gurls don't use the interwebz!"

*SNERK* I've been using the Intarwebs long before most people even knew they were around. Heck I was on the BBSs back in the early 90s!

I think I just dated myself. O_O

lol It's ok. :P I've been online for the last 10 years. Maybe getting closer to 11. :P I started going online because I was bored watching my brother play games all day. haha, look where I am now! It's a great place to connect with others and stuff though.

I feel like I'm rambling now though. :P

I've been on the computer practically all my life. Started on C64s teaching myself BASIC.

Aww, ha ha! Well, it's hard to confuse my name for a guy's name, but back in the day people in chatrooms and online ALWAYS thought I was a guy. To the point where this one guy flat-out argued with me that I was lying about being a girl. Something in my energy, that's apparently shifted back to being more feminine....but still! So, I feel your pain to a degree. ;D

I think it's hilarious. I can't typically be taken for anything BUT a chick. I'm way too femme, lol!

And chan in Japanese typically is used for women or children. O_O Unless you're being cutsy with your boyfriend....
