Q+A for beginners(and everyone else)

Hi

I play blitz every day pretty much and have struggled up to about 1350 at the moment. I normally play King's Gambit when I am white - I would like to know why virtually every opponent I play when I am black plays the same opening : E4 ..., Kt F3 ... Bc4 ...  it drives me insane - why such unanimity from hundreds and hundreds of players?

Zugs52 sent me an IM on this. I answered that maybe all of his opponents are friends and play the same thing. The other option is just pure coincidence
