. But I have met some truly amazing men in the last 18 years of my life, and as a result I now expect better from everyone, and when i don't get it I am no longer afraid to voice my displeasure!
I'm tired of all the goodness, in my age group I'm looking for worse from everyone. I should elaborate on that so it isn't just my usual flippancy.. everyone is so boring and proper once they start getting kudos from other boring proper people for being boring and proper.

As to the fandom cliches, years online didn't talk me into them being a reality, actually meeting a whole lot of fans en masse at cons did.
