    See that one blue dot connected to 9 pink dots?

    I hate that dot.

    Also: See those two connect pink dots? :3

    On the right side of the big graph I see a blue dot that’s getting some on the DL.

    I made one of these for my group of friends, it’s kinda disgusting.
    @Gilly: There’s only one person that could be considered gay in this, the other 3 people in homosexual relationships are in hetero ones too!

    @Gilly: 3, actually. One at about 7 O’clock on the big circle, another halfway down the branch at 2 O’clock. And of course, the lesbian one on the top middle diagram.

    Far right at the top, 2 slutty chicks of the school (possibly future strippers/crackwhores).

    What I find strange is the complete lack of any single people. Are relationships mandatory where these people live?

    Why would they put single dots on the graph? Well, I can see the Idea. Put a blue dot with a number, and a pink dot with a number.

    “…lines connecting students represent romantic relation…”
    That’s nothing there that means actual sex was taking place.

    Herpes, Syphilys, Gonoria, and many more STDS.. And right now the bottom side of my leg that touches toilet seats has 3 red dots.. I need to talk to my roommate. That whore.

    @reboot: yes, there is. This is a 2004 study from the American Journal of Sociology and asked for “romantic partners” (i.e. dating) OR “non-romantic sexual partners” — so the “romantic partner” thing sort of implies sexual relationships as well.

    @Marcika: Do you have a citation for the paper? Because “romantic partner” does NOT imply actual sex. Anyone who had girlfriend in high school who stopped you at 2nd base knows that.

    @MacheteJak:
    This only graphs relationships, not members of the school.

    I never got those 2nd-base whatever baseball references.
    Can I use this lack of knowledge as an excuse to just go all the way right away?

    @reboot:

    You might. The rest of us dumped her when she wouldn’t put out.

    Who are the blue dots who actually admitted their connections? Things have changed since I went to high school…

    I wasnt even in there in HS.
    And I had a six pack, WTF!

    I’m glad to see times haven’t changed.

    The fact that pink dots are more often the center of groups would be interesting, except when you remember that the average age of losing virginity is 15 for men, and 16 for women.

    That’s because a minority of women give up to a lot of guys, and the rest wait ’til their older, bringing up the average.

    I wonder how they factored the compounds.

    @deuce: They have, especially for the guys. Gay students walk through the halls hand-in-hand. They still get hassled, but not nearly as badly as when it was only thought that someone was gay.
