I’ve been playing with Gimp. That’s Gimp the imaging software, not A Gimp. I need to do a new banner so have been fiddling around with some ideas – and the above seemed like a fun thing to create.
Because everything in Real Life can be applied back to Wow or Vice Versa ( how I miss those chocolates) I remembered reading a story a few years ago about a dating phenomenon called the ” BIB” method, (Banana in Basket) . Where at supermarkets at a particular time and place – the idea is that depending on the items you put in your shopping trolly Eg a Banana in the Baby Basket of your trolly it lets the other shoppers know that your available, and are looking to be picked up / what you’re preferences are. It’s a secret singles Grocery code.
How does my twisted brain apply this to wow? – Lets apply this in a more RP Fashion – apparently people RP Romance while RPing and do ERP. Mmmmmm – I had no idea….
So say you hypothetically are on a RP realm, and hypothetically decide it’s time that your character needs a partner. How would you Hypothetically met said person.
So the Legerdemain Lounge has a singles night on a Friday night – and all these random people turn up – how are you going to tell if people are in the bar are single, just looking for a date, want a long term partner or are just afking waiting for something else to happen.
We invent our own Grocery Secret Singles code. ( ok not so secret now) Instead of arranging our fruit in a shopping trolly – you equip/show your gear in a particular way.
Here are some ideas.
No Cloak = I’m free and single and Looking
Helm visible = I’m Taken but I’m here to look anyway
With Tabard =Looking for committed relationship
No Shoulders = Looking for adventure
Holding black roses = Looking for a rebound
Holding red roses = Looking for Love
Shirt and casual pants = laid back – here to chill – might talk to you if you look interesting.
Dressed up in a Slinky Dress or a Tux = I’m Single – footloose and fancy free
I’m sure there are a few other variations – and combination’s that will help you meet the right people.
I’ll be at the bar talking to the bartender.
Disclaimer: We finished raid early. I needed something to do. Apologies in advance if this doesn’t go down well 😛
