| × I hate office jobs. (Nah, they're useful.)
|| × I went to college out of state. (I'm not American. And the UK isn't really big enough to consider going to university in another city/county as equivalent. Oxford is about 170 miles from when I grew up.)

||✓ I spend way too much time on the computer than on anything else. (That sentence is broken, but I do probably spend too much time at computers.)
| × Nobody has ever said I'm normal. (Plenty of people have, and plenty of people have said I'm not. I'm no longer insulted by being thought normal.)
||✓ Sad movies, games, and the like can cause a trickle of tears every now and then. (Yeah, I'm soppy. No-one would believe this is the same girl who at age 8 didn't cry at E.T.)

|✓ I like the way women look in stylized men's suits. (Mmmm.)

|| × I am unashamedly bisexual, and have different motivations for my desires for different genders. (I agree with the first half, but have no idea what the second bit is getting at. I fancy boys and girls, though I tend to go for boys more. I don't feel I need to be seeing both.)
|| × I sometimes won't sleep a whole night or eat a whole day because I forget to. (I do very rarely forget to eat, but not for quite that long.)
