most of the time its seems its a girls boyfriend i want to end up suplex because through the weirdest of circumstances my friend always seems to tick the boyfriend off incredibly easily, i dont know why the girls are completely fine with it but for some reason he manages to do this alot,  its like he has a built in land mine detector and he just likes to find them and poke them with a stick without knowing hes doing it, and everyone is confused when it starts to randomly go off... except somehow im involved with it

azzholes do dumb $h!t when there's a girl involved

i don't know why the girls are completely fine with it

it's b/c women are either too naive to notice or they just don't give a f*ck

its like he has a built in land mine detector and he just likes to find them and poke them with a stick without knowing hes doing it, and everyone is confused when it starts to randomly go off... except somehow im involved with it

as said before azzholes like to do dumb $h!t .. you can't change them.. suplexing the mofo won't do anything.. talking to em' won't either unfortunately.. you just gotta change yourself and just deal with it or stay away from those idiots..

i don't quite catch on to what you're saying here.. but, i take a guess.. you're scared of getting hurt? (heart broken)

well basically ive played alot of competitive sports and went to a school where everyone is a druggy or a drunk or something else that leads to nuisances so when you live your entire life like this while being depressed and shy its rather confusing when a girl you dont know very well starts acting nice towards you and starts doing things like hugging me, which is rather awkward for me since well as you would expect i dont get hugged very often nor do people express any amount of caring towards me to help and try and work out my problems, so im saying that somebody being nice towards me without even knowing me very well and asking for nothing in return has left me awestruck
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Robs_ugly_artwork on November 23, 2009, 11:42:42 PM
i understand i went through that entire scenario (excluding the sports part) when i was younger (14yo) .. it's a tough hurdle to overcome.. i truly understand what you feel like right now... i really do .. and it sucks to know that you are going through the same f*cked up BS feelings that i've went through before..

unfortunately there is no advice that i can give you.. you just have to learn to deal with it through your own experience b/c the way i've dealt with it might not work out well for you.. i can tell you how i did it if you want. up to a certain extent due this sites pg13 issue of course..

Im surviving with my pencil in hand, i have a few good friends and i find true loyalty there. its the last year and im out of this hazy drug and smoke filled school and never shall either go into my system for they cloud my mind and prevent me from giving excellence in everything i put my heart to and that simply will not do, the depression has faded and i swore never to return to that, the most ironic of situations capitalized by the fact that suicide for me was a implosability ... now if only i can figure this girl out i think ill do alright  :-\


well that felt good

sounds like your clouded mind has suddenly cleared up.. that's great.. that you can control your thoughts and feelings like that.. it took my along time in order for me to do that.. i used to depend on others for comfort and answers and when they weren't there which was most of the time i would become lost and depressed.. fortunately for me it might have taken a long time but, now i can deal with it pretty well now.. within a few seconds actually... so i'm glad that you have a good head on your shoulders and that you can cope with the BS on your own.. which is what matters the most.. (making yourself happy and not depending on others)


... now if only i can figure this girl out i think ill do alright  :-\


Questions if you want to answer:

1) are you attracted to this girl?

2) why is she in constant contact with you (hugging, etc.) ? .. is it out of strictly friendship or is she attracted to you?

Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Tzefa on November 24, 2009, 12:13:06 AM
the mind clearing thing was mostly because of my brother, we were in a clan for a while for video games and thats why theres that skull in my sig, with the words underneath to represent part of the code of honor which i forcibly obey in all aspects of life
anyways


I dont know if im attracted to this girl, she is pretty, at least to me but im to unsure about myself and who she is and im mostly confused, it feels mostly like instinct, grabbing onto the first piece of debris while your drowning in the ocean....

on the other hand shes a very open person and she hugs alot of people and it seems i am her friend, but ever since she learned how awkward i am when im hugged she then proceeds to do it more often, and shes asked some odd things before like during a long talk with her she told me her age/grade and about a minute later she asked if i was looking for a girl my age or younger than me so Perhapppsss im not certain so im even more confused, and shes never hinted at having a boyfriend at all...
damm confusing women  :confused:

that's great that you have something to resort back to when times get you down (like your code of honor) .. some ppl turn the bible, some turn to friends/family, you turn to you code of honor, i pop open a Heineken and say "F*ck it"!!  :tongue: rofl

damm confusing women  :confused:


i can see where the confusion lies .. the first part (that i put in bold) would suggest strictly friends ..

on the other hand the second part would suggest that she has an interest in you.. by her opening up to you would suggest she wants you become comfortable with her (b/c she knows that you feel awkward around her, so she initiates the conversation and tells you interesting things about her.. so you know her better without even asking.. (ppl who want to be friends normally do this) ..

 the last part is the catch.. usually when someone asks what their personal interests are and uses themselves as a comparison (that's the age part).. that usually suggests that she wants you to think about her in that way.. to me, what i get from it.. is that she's attracted to you and she's "fishing" right now.. she's trying to open you up.. which is a good thing b/c usually the guy has to do this part of courtship but, she knows that you are shy and she's taking it upon her own hands to do you a favor and play both roles so you feel comfortable..

if i were you i'd say f*ck it and just go with the flow.. if it's not what it's cracked up to be, then f*ck it .. you always have you pencil and code of honor right? .. but, if it works out then WooT!!! for you buddy  :D

I know I'm not supposed to just break in and rip everything apart, like som kind of feelings spoiling monster :hmm: But the conversation really interested me  :-\

Note that I have absolutely NO experince with this kind of stuff at all, since I'm the answer to the maximum most asocial existence in world (You know what I mean) <- actually I have... But never gf though..

I have experienced the first part (Everyday half a year ), but because she had a boyfriend (Too embaressed to tell why she chose him lol) and because I didn't really made an approach, nothing really happended  :hmm:

Okay whatever ^^- I think: Strike while the iron is hot,  ;) An easy thing to say, though it's a very problematic thing to do  :secret:
She's definintly liking you (in some way at least :tongue: Hugging might be a normal thing for her, but she's hugging you more, and if it is for teasing, that's only a good sign)

And she kinda asks if you're looking for a girlfriend (indirectly) :) Or maybe she has a friend  :hmm:

OR it might be that she only wants a friend she can be with in another way, than her other friends  :hmm:
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Coryn on November 24, 2009, 11:15:16 AM
umm i think kites trying to say "wait for a little bit to see what happens then go for it and if it doesnt work out see if she knows anybody that might like you"

but yeah women are confusing as hell. i was in the same situation as you just one year ago tzefa. random girl i knew suddenly got very close to me and started doing the huggy lovey thing. one day she randomly came into class and sat on my lap instead of her own seat which was right next to em. i felt like i was in an ecchi or something. i asked her out shortly after and got sent straight to the friend zone. her reason? there was this guy she met like twice in a town 50 miles away that she had already asked out twice and was turned down both times but she doesnt want to give up yet.
i wont go into detail of what happened afterwards but it wasnt pretty.

moral of the story. if it goes south just dont worry about it and just move on with your life. if she isnt interested, you probably wont be able to change her mind.

Try ask what type of men/boys she prefer 

Kite has made a very good point by saying that..

you see if you were to go out of your way and ask her questions like that (at the appropriate time) it would not only show her confidence (a side that she never seen before.. which is a test for her, as well as for you) it would also answer all your questions without the conversation turning awkward or weird.. it would be like a normal conversation to her.. but, to you it would mean a whole lot..

by answering your questions i mean... there's only 2 ways she'll answer it.. 1) she'll describe a man who is much like yourself or 2) somebody totally different entirely.. once this happens you'll know for sure what her intentions are .. whether it's just friends, she like you, or she likes someone else .. one simple meaningless question can answer so much.. it's just up to you to try ;)


everyone has their own set of problems/issues .. it's just that yours seem the most interesting ATM,  :laughing11: hahaha!!

-Rob

ps. i forgot to mention that a women's body language say's a lot as well .. sometimes it says more than any words could say .. be very aware and be sure to watch out for that.. good luck 8)

Girls are confusing, especially in high school. Just remember that no matter what the outcome of your situation is you probally won't end up marrying this girl. You're still young and the world is full of all sorts of diffrent girls, even if this doesn't work out don't let it get you down, there's a ton of opportunity out there.

You should look at life, especially when it involves girls, as a buffet. There's all sorts of food on the buffet, some of it is really boring and some of it is really unique and exotic. Sample as much as you can whenever you can and eventually you'll find something that is absolutely delicious and you can't do without. But the more you sample the better prepared you are for when you find that perfect dish.

to expand on the metaphor: also remember that the more you sample the higher the chance you'll wake up the next morning with food poisoning

cool congrats.. you found a cool friend who has the same interests as you do..

QUESTION: to the male members of this forum..

Do you guy's feel that you need a women in your life (now, eventually, whatever) or do you feel like you can go on living a happy life without a female companion (GF,wife, FTF, whatever)??

please take the time and explain your answer.. i really want to know :-\

thanks

Post by: Tzefa on November 25, 2009, 09:56:03 PM
I think i could live my life without a girl in my life but im sure after a while i would become more cynical and bitter, in other words even more insane than i already am. The way i see it having a girl in my life would mostly let me get out the feelings and thoughts that i could never tell my normal friends and let me be even more passionate about things, without a girl these may build up and lead to depression, anger and sadness espesialy since i have very few people that i can have a deep conversation with and those kind of talks can take a load of your back that would eventualy crush you
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Coryn on November 25, 2009, 09:59:08 PM
i could probably survive without a female companion. not saying i dont want to get married or anything. but for now im perfectly happy being single. i know that being in love can be an amazing thing that makes life just that much better. but for now im perfectly happy by myself. as for the whole letting stuff of your chest thing. i have my best friend who i could tell anything too. he's one of those people who you could call to bury a body.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Robs_ugly_artwork on November 25, 2009, 10:10:33 PM
thank you for answering fellas ;)

@ Zef: i understand the need/want for a companion (a shoulder to lean on) when times get rough.. and also when times are good too.. but, why do see it that person as a female companion (GF, wife, etc.) and why not a best bud or just a female friend (non-romantic relation)?? why the need for a female specifically (other than sexual relation of course)

@ Coryn: i understand where you are coming from.. my mentality about women is the same as yours as of right now.. only difference i have no plans of changing this mentality that i have ever.. this is most likely b/c women have burned me out to the point that i have given up on the whole romantic relation BS.. (it's a long story.. but, i can answer any questions if you guys are curious)..

thanks again for taking the time and sharing

Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Lassiter on November 26, 2009, 12:30:46 AM
I have gone through several diffrent stages concerning girls.

I had a string of girlfriends through high school and college and none of them were much of anything. If anything, it was just someone to pass the time with, someone  to fool around with, or just someone to be with for the sake of having someone to be with.

That being said I do have a woman in my life right now. I'm engaged to a girl I worked with while I was in Korea and things couldn't be better. Well they could be better but not in a relationship manner. Our relationship is great, it's strong and vibrant. The only part that sucks about it is we're in the process of waiting for the visa paperwork to come through so she can emigrate to the states. It really figures, the government screws over citizens who try to do things properly by making them jump through a dozen flaming hoops of doom while those who come here illegally aren't punished. But that's government for you.

All in all I enjoy having a partner in life. Someone who has similar likes and dislikes and who understands what I'm going to say or do before I say or do it and vice versa. It's important to find someone you fit with, someone who gets you and who you get. It's always better to share your life, your hopes and dreams, and goals with someone then to go it alone. It's even better when that someone understands you and actively helps you achieve your goals because they are the same as their own.

Girls are a very magical and wonderful thing. They have such potential in the minds of men to both build and destroy all manner of other relationships. They can bring out our worst traits or our best. They can make us better people or they can take us down a road of despair and misery and I wouldn't have it any other way. Relationships, both good and bad, have a way of making us stronger and a way of teaching us lessons about ourselves that we would not normally be able to learn. The same is doubly true if you have ever or are living with your girl.

In one of the Dialogues Socrates tells a story about the rolly pollys. He says that the first creatures the Gods created were large, round beings called rolly pollys. These creatures decided to become Gods themselves and so they started rolling their way up Mt Olympus. The Gods, once they realized what the creatures were trying to do, split the creatures in half. However the split wasn't perfect, one of the halves had a little bit more flesh then the other. That was the birth of men and women and the rest of our lives all we are doing is trying to fit the two halves together again in order to once again become a single entity.

The story wasn't part of the accepted Greek religious authority and it was really only used to illustrate why men ran around trying out so many diffrent women but ultimately the story is quite touching. We really are just running around looking for the person that completes us.

Post by: Robs_ugly_artwork on November 26, 2009, 04:11:35 AM
We really are just running around looking for the person that completes us.

this is what i can't understand .. i mean, it's really understandable if you think of the basic human needs and wants.. but, the thing that i can't understand is why does everyone around me (girl or guy) have to keep pushing me to find someone new.. nobody seems to understand me when i say that i have really given up on romantic relations with women.. ever since i was 14yo till i was 28yo i had either a girlfriend, wife or an FTF .. i had major ups and i had extremely low downs.. that last relationship i had ended on the worse down that i ever felt ever .. it's an extremely long story but, basically it's b/c of my past experience i have realized that this entire concept of the man has to be with a women is total BS..

in fact yesterday marks the 1st year anniversary of the first time being single since i was 14yo .. needless to say i have reinvented my entire life this past year.. i now see and feel things differently then 99.9% of people i come in contact with.. my closest friends think my exGF has clouded and confused my mind.. but, in reality she has opened it to new and better things that i have never been accustomed to before.. even though she has caused me so much sadness and pain.. i for one, thank her for unintentionally teaching and showing me what my life is really worth.. 

so Valerie if you ever read this..  thank you, i'm not a fool in love anymore.

it reminds me of a girl who used to be on the forum by the name of Demi. interesting girl, goth/emo, and full of her own opinions. but one thing that was interesting about her that pertains to this conversation is that she was completely against any kind of romantic or sexual relationship. i was never quite sure why. im only guessing she had had some bad relationships in her life. i just find it interesting that she detested the whole man woman thing.

before you think any bad thoughts she detested female female relationships too

wow, i guess there's my .1% ..

anyways, i would say that's pretty cool to know that there's somebody else out there that sees things the way i do now.. but, i won't say that.. simply b/c it's not cool to feel and live the way i do and i wouldn't want what happened to me, to happen to anybody else for that matter..

about the Emo/Goth thing .. sometimes i look in the mirror and ask myself if i'm turning into that :-\.. then a few seconds alter i'm like.. Nnaaaaahhhhh!!  :laughing11: hahahaha..

note: i'm not against the emo/goth lifestyle.. i think it's pretty cool and interesting.. it's just not for me is all 8)

I wasn't saying that you need to find someone, or maybe I was. Anyway.....I think what I was trying to get it is that even if one isn't out looking for anything that its best to still keep your options open. The best stuff always seems to happen when you're least expecting it or not looking for it.

yeah, you guys are right.. that's what i'm doing right now actually.. since i lost all feelings for the "hunt" .. i'm not looking for anything at all.. it's just kinda irritating that ppl want to push me to start "hunting down women" again.. they think that if i'm not out hitting on every available woman i come in contact with, they say i'm not being myself (b/c i used to hit on girls all the time) .. this makes me wonder what "being myself" really means.. the old Rob (who needed a GF) or the new Rob (who just don't give a f*ck) .. which is the real me :-\ hmm.. meh' i'll figure it out later i suppose :tongue:

anyways, hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving.. :D

yes, this is true.. unfortunately for me the girls who become interested b/c if this, apparently "don't give a f**k either" if you know what i mean..

Post by: Coryn on November 28, 2009, 12:17:57 PM
yeah....

my opinion. just try and figure out what you want. do some soul searching you know? if you come out to some sort of answer. try and apply it. if your not happy with it. try something else. i think your just going to have to do some touch and go until you know what you should do.

thanks Coryn for the advice.. what you're saying is true.. i already know this..

my original post was just asking a question on what everyone's thoughts on the subject was.. b/c i was curious .. i already know what "i should do" and i just wanted to know what you guys would do is all.. thank you though 8)

(Just have to get it out...)

Waaah  :'( One of my comrades made a trip to my school... A girl...

Oh, and she's so cute, that I blush everytime I look at her, and I kinda try to avoid her, since I can't get a conversation on (Because I'm... yeah... shy?)  :Embarrassed:

Her looks: Short, small ribbon on head, glasses, short hair, skirt... Well... Just cute  :Embarrassed:

When she came into my class my heart went "doki doki" (doki doki <- like to write it, and say it)
And then one of my comrades asked why I didn't talked to her, I blushed, and he went to get her... Killing silence :'(

------

Well, now that I'm writing anyway, I could also say, that there's a girl in my class, that I am not in love with, but I like her.. kinda...  :hmm: When you like someone, that person becomes a little more beautiful, right? Hmm,... she's always nice to me, and sometimes our glances meet and we both smile... I think  :laughing11:

----

So, it's off my chest now..........

----

Btw I also talked to a girl at my school's prom-kinda-thing, and she's really nice and all, but she... likes me friend I think.... Have you ever experienced something like that, and the you just feel "aw maaaan" :hmm:

yeah thats how most of the girls i tried to go out with ended up being like. i think thats true for most guys. just cause a girl likes you doesn't mean they wan't to go out.

Welcome to the "Friend Zone" Kite!! .. yup, Coryn's right. i'm pretty sure we all have been there at one point or another.. and yes, it's pretty disappointing when it happens.. but, and the good side of that you end up with a pretty cute friend.  8)

nope, an optimist would've expected the cute girly to have been his girlfriend right of the bat.. the pessimist would have just thought of all the negative outcomes and just settled for the friend zone after messing it all up somehow , lol  :laughing11:

Anywaays a update on my.... Life?
I'm starting to think my friend knows something I don't because he keeps telling me to date her and they often text back and forth and outta nowhere he starts suggesting things and asking me questions  :hmm:

Post by: Robs_ugly_artwork on December 03, 2009, 09:36:28 PM
that's called a "wingman" my friend (helping you to get an easy hook up).. those can be your trump cards in the game of romance 8) .. on the flip side to that.. if this "friend" of yours has any slight feelings towards your female "love" interest it also can become your imminent down fall .. so be careful ;)

i can go into more detail if you don't really understand what i'm saying.. i've had experience with playing both sides of this spectrum and it's pretty fun actually.. if you know what you are doing of course 8)

Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Coryn on December 03, 2009, 09:44:07 PM
that is the best kind of wingman. what you need to do is get your friend to ask this girl her thoughts on you. like a twist on that thing we all did in middle school where you had your friends ask out girls for you. except your going to be the one to man up in the end here.

I'm just saying. if you can found out before you can save yourself the embarrassment. i mean you'll find out either way right? so why not take the path of least resistance. plus it could save you from having an awkward relationship with said girl if things dont work out.

Tcha, of course I would  ;) It's not like I love her or anything ^^- I like her a bit more than in a friendly way, but not as close as to love her  ::)

lol, within the lsat 24 hours or so, Kite has grown from a boy into a man :laughing11: ..

anyways, as for the "love" part .. IMO: of course you don't fully love the girl yet.. you hardly even know her... that's what dating is for Kite.. so i guess that right now you have a choice whether or not you want to help your friend out or steal her away for yourself :naughty: hehehe .. your choice.

oh and where i'm from we have a few set of rules for things like this:

RULE 1: "Bros before Hoes" .. meaning a girl should never come in between your brothers or close friends friendship, no matter what.. so if your friend likes a girl that you like (or not) ..one of you should let the other one take her and you should be supportive and help out the dude... unless of course your friend drops the ball (failed attempt).. then you have no choice but to jump in for the kill!! :naughty: hehehe
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women

of course bros before hoes gets broken way too often. its a direct correlation to how hot the girl is

or how crappy a friend you have and that's why i have only a few "true friends" left that i consider my brothers 8) .. it's a test of a man's integrity, honesty, morals, etc. etc. .. sometimes it takes a female to reveal a man's true colors.. you just have to notice it before *censored* really starts hitting the fan.. you know what i mean?

I've never had to deal with that, Tzefa. I choose the people I connect with very carefully, as to make sure there won't be people that will cause me problems, excluding my family, they're in my life till the end whether I want it or not. Never to say, there's never the problem with people who try to get close to you when you obviously show no interest in doing so.
God how I hate people who are over friendly.

honesty is the best policy when it comes to me.. lol...  gotta be cruel to be kind i always say ( no i don't)...  and i have that in abundance...  i never lie to my friends.. if i don't wanna hurt their feeling at a fragile time.. i'll conceal the truth... but never lie to friends or family... people i don't connect with i lie all the time... and i expect the same to my friends

i too pick my friends very carefully... all the friends i have are for life....  its all about who you connect with...

Hnn, I wouldn't know about girl troubles since I find it pointless to any relationships like that in high school, or any type or short lived relationship, but I can relate to you on the angry parent troubles. Probably not the same type of angry, but frustrating, complaining parents nonetheless.

Post by: Tzefa on April 06, 2010, 01:02:17 AM
Eh with the girl troubles, i could sum it up pretty easily, she needed something to hold onto, i wanted to see the world a little differently, a little brighter. she no longer needed something to hold onto me and all the color drained out of my world, and yet through a messed up series of events i was still there, always to make sure everything turns out ok, and she kept throwing herself into the fire, but i think its done now shes happy im alone, just the way it started

as far as parents are concerned...  i'm old fashioned... i'd show them respect it will pay off in the long run.. don't think about the bad times... think about the all they've done for you... and the problem with teens is they don't realise that you can actually talk to your parent and compromise whatever you want...

lol.. i'm no good on the girlfriend topic i've had very few.... but i too am a passive aggressive and if someone pisses me off to such an extreme then i would totally block them out of my life.. by the sounds of it she's abusing you... if i were you i'd get out while i can.. lol.. plenty of fish in the sea

Haha, well I understand the whole "trying to get it out" thing, I've been like that tonnes of times when I felt troubled in any sort of way.

I personally think that being alone is for the best, at least for a while, you can't just get into a relationship and expect it to last forever. I'm waiting until I don't have all these teenage dramas happening around me, too much emotional stuff which isn't the type of thing for me. Falling in love innocently, pure, rotten, doesn't matter, I'm just waiting it out until then.

Post by: Fnnenn Enninn on April 06, 2010, 01:09:35 AM
xD No prob, I understand that.
I usually end up as the best friend, who has to take all of the bad news, save a few people from getting beaten up after they start picking things. And never get anything out of it =/ Maybe not a romantic twist, but I can tell what it's like that way too >,<

And as far as women troubles go, I can't really relate, all the damn 7th graders keep asking me out Dx
And I have just about the most chill girlfriend ever xD

Post by: Account Disabled on April 06, 2010, 01:12:47 AM
Sumi, your girlfriend wouldn't give to craps if you were run over, every time you go to see her, she walked about 10 feet past you and you have to chase her. I'm kind of opposite though, in China, older women around their early twenties, late teens, were the ones with interest in me, I kept moving around and only stayed in China for a month though, what a waste.

Again, I've never had to deal with peoples' emotional stuff, or having to be the shoulder people cry on, the person they depend on, but it doesn't mean I can't be that person, just nobody thinks I'm that type of guy.

kinda gave you the wrong idea with that  :confused: its not abuse so much as it is me trying to do the right thing, having my hopes build up just for the plummet back to the earth and other stupid things like that because.... well im a idiot

As for high school relationships ive seen quite a few good ones, my good friends have been dating for 2 years there both happy and its a normal good relationship, same with another one of my friends whos also been in a relationship with the same girl for 2 years, my brother for gods sake the first girl he dated he is now raising a daughter with and happy as hell

I'm just talking from my point of view, most people around my town break up as fast as they got together, so I can't really keep track of it anymore, even my friends. The only one I know at the moment is that Sumi has been, and still is, dating an underage girl. :o

Nah, but people really aren't even serious in my town, that's why I'm waiting, to see who else is out there.

Gotta be pretty bad to be let down like that, huh? Being an idiot isn't always a bad thing though, might be able to get you somewhere someday...I hope.

Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Fnnenn Enninn on April 06, 2010, 02:21:22 AM
Full beards are unattractive >,<
And yea, people in my town are constantly on and off, or getting together for small flings.
They move to quickly with the relationship, always going on to the next level before really getting to know each other.

I didn't really know my girlfriend when I first started dating her, she was a friend of a friend of mine, and she thought I was goodlookin', and innocently told her friend. Then we all went home and were meeting up again later to hangout, and I recieved a creepy phone call that went little like:

Christine: Daniel, get down here now, Joel wants to talk to you!
Joel(steals phone): No, Dana does.
Dana(background): Christine, he's you boyfriend beat him up!
Christine(background): Jesus Joel! Give me my phone!
Joel: Dana thinks your hot *click*
Me: Did I just get a phone call and not get to speak once? 0.o

So, I went to the park and they wouldn't let me leave until I had asked her out. Naturally, I felt that odd for someone I had just met, and forced them to give up. Later on, I was talking with Dana more on the internet and I asked her out then, after talking with her for a while.

We then spend a few weeks getting to know eachother, before we went anywhere with the relationship.
It was Christmas before she actually said she "was IN love with me" and yeah.
She moves away this summer >,>

But I digress. The key to a good relationship is not going fast and spending all your love immedately.
But taking it slow and making sure you know eachother, not so much as friends, but as a couple.

@Litt, I don't call it underage. I call it "funderage"  :naughty:
And she's only 13 Dx
Also, she's what people call, un-observant... She's gotten lost in her own backyard before.....  And fails to notice people when they stand next to her saying "Dana... Dana. Hello :confused:"
Even if that person is her boyfriend  :(

beards can look really good if you keep them well.. and if you take good care of  it... trim and don't let it get to fuzzy and uncontrolable... you need to tame a beard....  keeping a beard is good experience for keeping a pet
also goatees can be cheezy... it depends on the person i guess... whether you can wear it well.... but some time it can just look like you got mud on your chin

LOL... funderage... good one...
but it technically isn't underage if its only a 2 year gap.. i'm sure thats ok....  from the sound of it you guys have a good thing going....  its the fact that you guy met before the age of consent that makes it an innocent/romantic relationship...  its all about friendship

friendship can be very important when finding the right girl.... cos if you aren't friends first.. then chance are it won't work

to be honest i wish i still had that frame of mind... but when you get older you take other aspects of people into consideration... like what they look like etc...   it art of courting a girl has become to lacivious (inclined to lustfulness)
in this day and age... shiverlry is dead

well i dont know about where you guys are but around here girls pretty much hate any kind of facial hair except the two day unshaven look. personally though my own relationship world is pretty empty. long story short i havent met any girls ive been interested in and the class creeper from high school asked me out. *sigh*

@Coryn: Same here Coryn, have yet to meet, or even see anyone I'm interested in. Creeper, huh? :hmm:

@Dawood: Still a little odd seeing how he has to walk down to a middle school filled with midgets to see his girlfriend.

I've got too long to wait before I ever begin worrying about girls, small town gives me little choice in who to choose, as well, my parents aren't too keen on the whole interracial relationship thing, even two days ago, my mom was on the phone with someone and kept saying, "What if she marries a white man?" It's a good thing I have an Asian fetish. :naughty:

Well quite frankly... yeah thats messed up  :confused: kinda reminds me of the girl right now who likes me simply because i decided to be my usual optimistic and kind self and supported her when she needed it... now she realllyyy likes me which is awkward because i dont have the same feelings

I gotta say today i went to school expecting things to go differently... instead im back to square 1, because it seems i cant help but not care about this person, which ironically due to a conversation today may be more of a guilt trip than walking away... Looks like im not happy unless i grind myself to dust but hey... watcha going to do?

..
ignore me if i must not write here i jsut like to vent and be a drama queen once in a while
...


i want to ask something in a man pints of view
...

okie dokie

i have a bf who i;ve been with like 2 years and something months..
... he met me with a tattoo and all
since we started dating i have made 3 different tattoes
i want to have some more but he makes the *censored*ign drama about my tattoo artist will see me naked and bla bla bla *censored*s
i mean its not like im doing something bad
yesh i will take off my pants  and must show like all my legs cuz they are like. too close to that part but its not like they are in that part..
but its not like i will be naked
i want to fix the ones i have in my legs cuz i didnt take good care of them and they are like weird plus i burned my leg so yesh they need to be fixed
but he says *censored*s like if i make another one he will brake up with me

im not doign something bad right???
its not like he met me without any tattoos ... okie i only had one but meh its not like i nver liked them

other thing i hate about him is that im pansexual
and its not like i dont like women or i dont like men or i have a defined sexuality since im with him
but once in a while he keeps asking if i still like girls
is not like i care if he is a guy
but he belives now that im with him that makes me heterosexual
and thats funny when he gets all jelous of guys
i just dont remind him that sometimes i like women
.. its not like i care about gender
but when it happens  :P



pft men why they must whim for anything?

Post by: Tzefa on April 06, 2010, 10:43:38 PM
Well different guys have there different areas of comfort. I knew a guy who was alright with his girlfriend smoking but refused to kiss her if she had one recently because he "didnt want to make out with a cigarette tray" Your boyfriend seems quite insecure, worrying that the tattooist will see you naked and he keeps asking you if you still like girls and being jealous about other guys. And im not sure what else to say about that, hes insecure as alot of people get in relationships, just because they dont want to lose what they have and there convinced there not as important as they are etc etc.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: dawood on April 06, 2010, 10:49:08 PM
LOL... just sounds like a normal guy.. he seems to be very protective of you.... although from what i gather he is clingy...  which mean that his threats of dumping you aren't true... if you go ahead with the tattoo he might moan about but in the end you've got what you want... and you are still together

as far as your sexual orientation is concerned theres nothin you can do about it you like both men and women...  but i think you should try to point out that in whilst you are in your relationship you are committed to him and neither man or woman would get in the way of that....  he if keeps bringing up the subject i feel as though it would just go round in circles.. so try not to mention it as best you can
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Fnnenn Enninn on April 06, 2010, 11:12:32 PM
There protective and then theres paranoia and controlling.

Tell him there will be no more skin shown then at a beach or a swimming pool.
If he argues, it's your body. Your not whoring around, you fixing some tats. Your quite capable of protecting yourself and your rights.

He probably just doesn't trust the artist. Dunno why, not everyone is a pig...

@Litt .. he is not but my bf says the tattooist is "my type" .. im not sure what he means by that
well i used to hang out a lot with him :P maybe that's why hes jealous.
besides his self esteem is like.. lower than mine lol

@Sumi.. according to his point of view.. he knows how all the guys are thinking
i bet he is always thinking dirty and that's why he believes all guys think the same >__> that perv!!!

@Dawood .. yeah you are right .. anyway its my body!! i didn't ask my parents if i could get a tattoo.. how should i do what he says damn i will do them! .. i explained how my tattoos are meaningful to me its not like im doing them in a whim ..  but he is still to closed minded in some points
and yesh is quite over protective


@Tzefa.. weird guy never heard of a similar case :P
 i guess his insecurity is also cuz he is like.. living by his own right now
he recently lost his father.. his mom kicked him out of her house (i hate her btw) .. one of his brother is with his mother and the other .. has a baby and he has his own life too..
its like im the only thing he has left and its quite stressed x__o
idk what to do.. i mean i understand him but i also need my space

Don't all guys think dirty? I mean, it may seem stereotypical, but yeah, in the end we're nothing but monkeys/dogs/whatever you like to call us.

By what you said, it seriously does seem like you're the only thing in his life right now, I'm not surprised he's so protective of you looking at the circumstances. Maybe instead of arguing about it, coming to an agreement would be better, if you don't get it, he's happy, if you do, then you are, I don't know any middle point, but maybe have him understand you?
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Fnnenn Enninn on April 07, 2010, 01:17:22 AM
Totally makes sense. A lot of guys once they find someone they love, will make it so their the centre of their world.
He means well, it's just he's insecure. Besides, the artist is probably a professional. It's work for him, not getting lucky. He's seen enough ass at his job he probably brushes it off x]

I can't really relate to your boyfriend, because I put trust in my girlfriend to take a stand if someone advances on her, over the lust of another guy. I've let my girlfriend go to the fair with a friend of hers, who everyone knew had a huge thing for her, and it may have made me nervous, and stomache sick to think of him trying anything, I had the faith that I knew she wouldn't let him.

The situation your boyfriend is in now, is making you all he has, you are in some sense what makes keeps him alive. maybe not alive in a sense of living, but a sense of quality of life. He'd figure he was worthless, and he's having the same feelings of stomache ache and worry I had, just coupled with his current state, making it 12times worse atleast.

Explain that the guy is a professional. Explain that you would never let him take you away. And maybe throw in a ugly joke or two, but make sure he knows that, thats what you want, and you're going to do it, and that there is no risk in doing it.

i said my bf thinks all guys think bad.. thats what HE thinks

i dont stereotype guys..
i hate stereotypes D:


@thanks summi.. what he needs is pro help.. which i cant give him :P hope one days he changes of mind
.. idk how far this relation will go XD

and you sounds like a good guy.. no wonder why your gf wont try to do anything....
jealousy kills everything and its like a weird infection.. :P


. you guys are riiighhhhhht
i will try to explain him one more time .. hope his little mind could ... understands something...
and sumi.. yesh.. its not like he has never seen anything in his life
once he told me how he was piercing a lady in that part
and the lady was crying.. "put your finger" and he was like err no.

I also knew what you meant, and I stand by it, men have dirty minds, it is just that we don't always follow those thoughts, some more than others though.

Also wish you luck on explaining things to him, I mean, it isn't a very hard concept to grasp, it's just a tattoo. :tongue:

well when it comes right down to it if your bf really has a problem with you getting a tattoo and there's no way to talk him out of his decision its going to come down do you want to have that tattoo more than that bf. but thats only if he stays stubborn about the whole thing. just try to talk him down.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: dawood on April 07, 2010, 02:07:21 PM
i honestly do not think that your boyfriend would leave over something as trivial as a tattoo... and like you mentioned before you already have a tattoo when you met so if he does leave you.. it would be hypocritical on his part
and beside you also mention that the tatto is on your leg so it would be covered up most of the time..
if he does break up with you then i don't think he was worth your time... because these tattoo are a part of who you are... otherwise you wouldn't have had them done... a tattoo is for life not just for christmas

Unless you're really attached to him, it really isn't a threat, is it? If he breaks up with you, then that's it, no big deal now, there are guys who aren't so overprotective out there with more self confidence than whoever your current boyfriend is.

I can handle situations well, so I don't get into fights often, also, guys don's seem to want to mess with one of the few Asians in town, it's like, "Oh, if there were a bunch of them then they'd mostly be nerds, but this is like one guy, we can't take him." God their reasoning is so off.

People usually think I'm just apathetic to the whole thing, I usually tell them I'm not interested in relationships anyways, then I'm called weird. Why? Isn't it normal to not care at age 15?

i hate living in a small town even more now. we never really had any fights at my school. and fights outside of school just didnt seem to happen. i remember watching a few "fights" that happened though. almost got myself body slammed into a wall one morning walking down the hallway cause one of my classmates pissed off someone else again. (this guy was really good at pissing people off). i jumped back in time but still got a front row seat. the thing is the guy who was getting beat on never fought back in all of the fights he got into cause he thought he wouldnt get in trouble if he didnt fight back.
of course everybody in the school new he was a major duche and majorly deserved it. so since it was only a one way ordeal i really cant call it a true fight. i still owe that bastard a good beat down myself.

As a kid a got into a few arguments that led to things which couldn't be called fights, just kids running around with no victor, just the adults stopping us. I stopped that now, usually I just ignore the idiots who try to anger me, or I throw an insult back and walk away, it's pretty boring, but easier that having to deal with the authorities around when somebody's seriously injured.

I'm not too familar with the American justice system, but in Canada, if you have a serious fear for your life, that in a court can be proven and justified with the "reasonable person" standard, then you can actually kill someone in self defence.

yeah in america we have self-defense and voluntary manslaughter. self-defense is basically when they're coming at you and you kill them in defense. voluntary manslaughter is when you kill someone with malice and forethought but they did it because they thought they would have been killed otherwise. basically you could think of it as a preemptive strike.

tell her to backoff... or atleast stop calling you onii-sama...  if she doesn't then I would blank her completely... no talking, no seeing each other.. delete her from facebook or whatever... lol

You don't have an imouto fetish? I would have thought you liked any younger, shorter girls, Daniel. Where's he bothering you to though? I swear, if you let me masquerade as you, I'll do some mental damage to her.

On Facebook, and I'd rather just toy with her myself.

See it happened like this, she has been asking Wyatt constantly if I thought she was cool or not, and I didn't know she even knew my name, I think I met her in person once, and have spoken to her online, never, well maybe once indirectly, as she's posted on the same status I have, but that doesn't count at all.

Finnally Wyatt got annoyed with her constant harrassing him to find out if I thought she was cool or not, and he told her i hated her and thought she was a stalker. For some reason the word stalker didn't send up a "Lies flag and she trusted him. Now she's been messaging me, and I guess, trying to redeem herself. I've been subtley telling her off, and such, it's similar to those "Are you the hot guy?" girls from Pres, if Litt remembers, only in weeaboo form.

I don't feel like being outright mean, since she's younger than me by quite a bit, but I also don't want to lead her on or be friendly, or jump to conclusions and say 'I don't have feelings for you" Before she even admits it to me, even if Wyatt knows, and has told me.

WHAT DO?

Seems like you get a lot of little girls coming at you with confessions and what not, kind of sad unless you're forty and they're twenty.

Just tell her to leave you alone, not lightly either, be assertive. Nice>Assertive<Mean. If she's a weeaboo though, there're a couple ways to get her to hate you, just start trashing on Japanese culture, anime, everything she loves while conversing with her.

That's right, if you don't think about ti they don't exist.... *insane laughter*

Boy meets girl.

Relationship.

Nasty breakup to tear the space-time continuum.

Gushy, awkard, embarrasing 'truce' was made.

Boy leaves school. Stays on huge holiday, enjoys it.

Halfway through holiday, Boy here's news that girl (14) decided to sleep with a 21 year old Disk Jocky (.....)

..... people keep asking boy if he's okay. Boy very annoyed.




I was bored. Sue me. XP

I'm not really sure. Things got weirder...

So i'm like 4 hours away from that crazy city and old-school-life-infested-district in some secluded barracks at my cousins place. And my cousin goes to Tanzania, then passes through that same old-school-life-infested-place to meet her boyfriend's sister, who is on a volleyball team. (do you follow?)

While they're, my cousin and the boyfriend take pictures and they invite the volleyball team to take a group pic.

My cousin shows me the pictures. Guess who's right smack on the center of the picture?

Plus, her middle name relates to my biblical name.

plus SHE FREAKING DRIVES ME CRAZY!

hey, it actually feels good to be open...

Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: legomaestro on May 01, 2011, 02:47:28 PM
^ I almost set it up, but didn't work out. But i understand the logic. Next time.

For now:

Story here!

Once upon a time legomaestro went to a fund raising event for orphans. Now of course, the only people who would actually go there, were drinkers, smokers, and hot chicks. (With combinations here and there, you get the idea)
.
Lego went there expecting a silent and happy-go-lucky fund raiser with awkward greetings and many parents, but boy was he wrong. Super wrong.

There was a girl out of a fantasy, hot as hell, and man, have you ever seen those gushy gushy freakin unrealistic movies where things are like 'oh you like that too?' well, it happened to me. Guys, i shiz you not she liked anime, and an obscure novel that i loved (Darkly Dreaming Dexter) and she actually had constructive statements about it.

PLUS she was hot.

In any case, lego planned on taking things further (number and name, of course) but in his stupidity, decided to take it easy and help her out (she was tending to a stand that sold second hand novels, and after the sales she was picking it up to drop it into the car). So me, good samaritan, smiling stupidly, all hopes up and heads in the clouds.

And she fuzin dissapeared.

I mean, sure, i probably looked drunk as i felt, but there was definately a chance either way. The only info i have on her is that she has cute scar on her cheek.

I will forever regret not fruzin asking her fuuuin name. She was really, really really a perfect match.

Sigh.

In any case i met another guy who liked writing just like me, and shared my same ideals. He gave me good advice (Don't bother with novels in Malawi. and he confirmed that the novels i liked were actually good)

After that i funded my brother's taxi back home, and then after that we went to buy some fried meat (Don't laugh!), and after that the car's tyre burst, and i waited in the shadows as a buddy got grilled by her mother. (You can never be too careful. We have a super interconnected network of families down here, so if she saw me i'd be considerably less happier.)

And when it was done, i came to a friends place, made plans for another drinking run, and went to sleep. (Or at least planned to)

Reason why this was posted here? The chick was THAT hot. I'm serious!

Life is good.

Post by: Coryn on May 01, 2011, 03:14:02 PM
hope is not yet lost lego! she was tending a stand there right? so there's a chance she'll participate in other events of the same like. keep up with such things or even volunteer yourself. make fate work for you.

Post by: Tostificer on May 01, 2011, 03:18:16 PM

Life's weird like that. Girls are weird like that.

Take this one girl I was doing the flirting waltz with back at college. Throughout the year I found myself moving in and out of her friend zone on multiple occasions. By the time we see each other again. (Which she'll be living with one of my best friends so it'll be all the time) Who knows.

Course there's the other girl who's been so sheltered she's never even kissed a guy before, which I don't even know where she is in this department. I'm fairly sure she's been oblivious to several of my advances. Which being too forward with her would probably scare her off, because again, that's what she's like from her upbrining.

Of course I was skeptical but it interested me so I clicked on it and listened to creator's lecture. Turns out you have to pay money to get all of his secrets.

Is there really a way to control the minds of women with little to no effort? Not that I would I want to do that or anything :sure:

well there are several subconscious things you can do to influence the mind of people. no such thing as total control. just subtle nudges. one of the more common ones though. is to wear lots of red. you see red symbolizes power. power attracts women. so whether or not they realize it themselves, you'll initially stand out among the crowed to them for this reason. course the rest you have to back up yourself.

There's many ways to control people's thoughts. You just gotta hope they don't know what your doing. More often than not that's true. The problem with those kinda things though, you become more of a dominator than someone in a relationship. Also, most of the advice turns you into a cunning bastard. You won't make friends down that road. If that's not a problem for you sure, go ahead.

Oh wait this happened quite a while back I think i told toasty but I asked 'the childhood friend' out. I totally flunked out by asking if her 'ok' meant 'ok ok.' and then i proceeded to die when my friends swore at me for questioning an 'ok.' I feel grief every time I rememeber that. Oh man, that was like last year.

Moving on.

Today I go shopping, and then I see this bombshell blonde. Well not blonde but um... is it auburn haired? Let me just say beer coloured hair. Wearing a cap, and with an almond shaped face that begged to be converted into anime. Anyways you get the idea. So she walks into the shop and rubs both her shoulders because they always keep the temperature low in there, and I stop and staaaare.

And then while shopping. She appears again! I immidiately planned how to greet her: offer my hand and introduce myself with a smile. And then tell her she's a 10. And then ask if she had a facebook. At the very least greet her you know?

But yeah, next thing I know i pretend to look at some shampoo when she passes by for the final time. Despair.

Anyways, I despair at my inability to do anything past my inhibitions. I know if this was GTA I would talk that game without a worry. More than the whole missing that opportunity it's pretty annoying that I can't do what I want even if this is supposedly my own body. I mean what the hell. It's like I'm just existing.

I can...actually somewhat confirm this? There's something disarming about a proper beard I think.

Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: GingerStark on January 29, 2014, 09:11:41 AM
Normally I don't shave unless I have a drama performance or guests round, but other than that I let it grow out for weeks at a time (trimmed of course) Yet I notice a difference not only from women, but people in general.

Funny enough, I saw a research study on TV about how beards display male testosterone, which normally puts off women except when they're on their periods or something related. So most of the time they like baby faced, feminine men but other times they like a King Leonidas appearance.
That sound crazy or is it just me?

If it makes you feel any better, the only reason I have facial hair is because I apparently traded the hair on top of my head for it in a past life.

Do you need a girl?
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: LittRL on February 02, 2014, 02:53:35 AM
Nobody needs a girl. It's just a man's inherent desire for one.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: KagePen on February 02, 2014, 03:11:49 AM
That's one way of looking at it, but what if the girl changes the guy? What if he was going done the wrong path but when he found her he changed to be with her? I think morally the guy needed her. There's many perspectives. Sometimes in life there's something you really want, if it isn't necessarily a bad thing and you work your way up to getting it you may go farther in life than you imagined. So sometimes a need isn't necessarily bad.

Hmm, rethinking the question.. What does love mean to you? Is it purely a desire or is it something else? To me, it's like a drug, a good drug.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: LittRL on February 02, 2014, 03:38:12 AM
That's just imagination running wild. There's no doubt cases like those but they're a small fraction of reality. Any man can say they'd shape themselves up for the right woman but without proof it's all just conjecture.

I'm pretty scientific on stuff about love. Not that I'm knowledgeable about it, I just prefer the explanation that love is the product of our desire to reproduce along with our positive reaction to a person's personality. Love is a drug, it affects the chemical reactions and electrical impulses within our bodies but it isn't as romantic as the phrase makes it seem.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: KagePen on February 02, 2014, 03:57:28 AM
That's true, I think conjectures like that arise in short term 'urges' or what have you. But what if it isn't short term?

What if it goes beyond sexual desire,  not in a friendship way, but rather something pure?
The phrases are like religion, yer olden' explanations of the 'unknown', though I like to still like to believe in this 'magic', what's the word with no secrets and surprises?  :tongue:
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: LittRL on February 02, 2014, 04:02:53 AM
Then the person's been alone for a longer time. Can't say I haven't had the thought myself but if you need someone else to change yourself for the better maybe you should take some time to think on that.

If you love a woman in the sense of "pure love" then it'll end in sex one way or another. Even if you do nothing but laugh and hang out as platonic friends you'll eventually come to that point. There is no magic in love since the word is thrown around so easily. There have even been many titles telling stories of how a widowed person finds a new love so what makes it magical besides the fact that you feel good? I'm real cynical on this subject though.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: KagePen on February 02, 2014, 04:28:13 AM
And what if the person hasn't been alone? Also, I think without a goal or whatnot people won't have the desire to better themselves, and if a person is a goal it's still the same as any other goal.


Sex and Making Love are two different things, I think 'love' is a combined balance of both sexual emotions and mental connectivity, on their own they are two different things but together they are something beautiful, though one should balance them.
Maybe 'true love' is very unprobable, and that's why one can always find new love. But those experiences you share with a special someone make them more special, so even if they aren't your 'perfect match' they're still better because of the history you shared with them.

Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: LittRL on February 02, 2014, 04:36:48 AM
So the person who's looking for a woman is in a relationship already? Alone in this context is alone romantically. Even if a guy did have supporitive friends and family it doesn't fill the gap of romance in his life.

You can try to split the two up with matters of technicality of human consideration but in the end it's participating in the act of sexual reproduction, regardless of the results. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so the beauty of a woman is all up to the man who looks at her. And special? The only thing that makes a person special is the people that label them that way. No doubt I myself would like to find a true love but that's not going to happen because true love is nothing more than a generalized idea of a person who would satisfy you in both physical and emotional matters.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: KagePen on February 02, 2014, 04:49:37 AM
Not necessarily, just hasn't been alone for a long time.

I don't think sex is the conclusion to every relationship xD j.j. So what you're saying basically is that sex is what makes a romantic relationship romantic? What about bromance? xD Anyway, if we keep talking about this it's going to make me depressed :l
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: LittRL on February 02, 2014, 04:55:43 AM
I'm saying romance may not be about sex but it'll end up that way eventually no matter how emotionally connected you may be. Depression is just a symptom of the system  that is romance. It's magical in its own way but it's also easily explained when observed and analyzed so I don't see how special it is when observed by the uninvolved. Just keep your notions of romance and love alive, I've managed to after all and I'm a the one making cynical comments.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: KagePen on February 02, 2014, 05:02:59 AM
I'm just the kind of person who likes things with an essence of 'life' in them, like how I prefer traditional over digital and reading manga from a book rather than online. So when things become too technical it's just not the same to me.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: LittRL on February 02, 2014, 05:10:54 AM
I'm the same way, actually. You may not tell it from what I say but I still have a strong attachment to the traditional ways of doing things. If manga books weren't so expensive I'd have a bookshelf in the corner. It's just that majority preference in romance takes over so you can't approach a woman on the street and ask if you could have her hand in marriage or if she would like to court with you anymore, that day has passed and died. That's why i have a cynical view on romance now, it won't survive without a large movement, otherwise it's all about singular, isolated cases.

Die! For crushing my hopes and dreams in true love!

The situation is like this: We usually know deep down we're wired about our concepts of love scientifically, but we act on it hoping it's not. Anyways, there are apparently such thing as asexuals who get into platonic relationships with people. I have never bothered to investigate past the banner for one of their advertisements they put in deviantart because I really just do not want to know.

Post by: LittRL on February 02, 2014, 07:03:48 AM
I said ignore the facts. I'm still grasping onto the idea of true love, as bleak as it might seem in these gray eyes of mine.

Asexuals scare me. They defy the laws of reason and human instinct, they live outside the law. Then again i have been called an asexual myself by my friends so maybe they're just weird enough to be my allies in arms.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Coryn on February 02, 2014, 10:25:19 AM
They really shouldn't. Asexuals are a part of life. They occur naturally, and they always have, just like every other form of sexuality. You shouldn't be afraid of people because they were born one way or another.

Unless they were born serial killers. Then you should be afraid.

very afraid.

But an open mind can me you vulnerable to people's opinions, which can be a bad thing depending how you look at it. After all. If you take in everything the government says, you're not really helping yourself become an independent thinker.

I think you're oversimplifying it. Girls are too complicated to sort into the kind that "likes badboys" or "likes heroes". Conversely, guys are too complicated to sort into "badboys" and "heroes". Attraction is governed by a myriad of attributes. Oversimplifying like to such degrees is the reason that we end up with ideas like "girls put all the 'nice guys' into the friend zone because they only like badboys"

At the end of the day there are about 3.5 billion women in the world, and about 3.5 billion ideas about what they want in a partner. cutting it up into badboys and heroes may work for stories, but the real world is filled with shades of gray.

Now here's something interesting; in psychology we were debating whether gender differences were actually due to biological aspects or because we're raised after model stereotypes (masculine and feminine environments)
Apparently some article argued that men control how children are raised and enforce stereotypes on children so they can remain the dominant gender, and suggested there are no biological differences in genders. In my opinion that's a load of balls, but I'm interested what other people think.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Coryn on February 03, 2014, 07:29:21 PM
To say that there are no differences between the sexes would to be completely ignore our entire biological history. males and females are built for different purposes. We have different hormone combinations and we are driven to do different thing.

Gender of course is a bit different. After all gender is essentially a societal idea which is based on sex. And theoretically there isn't anything one gender can do that another cannot.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: GingerStark on February 04, 2014, 11:55:40 AM
Exactly, I mean if enviromental reasons were the true reason behind sex differences, then how come you never hear of women cavemen hunting mammoths instead of men? It's because biologically they are programmed to be more social whilst men are programmed to be more aggresive.
 
I re-read the article again, turns out the writer was an extreme feminist. Would explain why she was so passionate about her views.

Getting Friendzoned or strung along.

What does it mean to you guys? Have you been in these situations?

I'm sure you all know what the friendzone is, but being strung along in a relationship is something really bad. The other day I was explaining something to someone and they brought up 'being strung along' as something I should be careful of in my current situation. Though when I looked up what it meant I found it to be something far from my situation (obviously didn't explain properly or enough). Basically, being strung along is to be kept on by someone in a relationship for the 'stringer's' own almost malicious intentions, for example: sex, money, or attention etc. Sometimes victims of this still stay in the relationship even after they have found out their partners intentions, due to insecurities or what have you. I think that's a really bad thing to get caught up in, in my opinion I think one should be purely honest with themselves so they can get out of these situations before it becomes something emotionally toxic.

As to explain my 'situation', it's something along the lines of trying to 'get the girl'. So far things have being going really well since I'm being absolutely open and honest with both myself and her. It's a clean situation, I make my intentions clear and I openly convey my feelings and whatnot, I've also avoided the 'friendzone' by talking through things with her. It's really cool, I can basically walk up to her and say anything (not in a bad way, I just don't have to feel awkward about flirting or being interested in what she's doing/ her day/ etc., we're clear on my feelings/intentions so it's just like good ol' courting), I even ask her if I make her uncomfortable or annoyed from time to time and she lets me know she's perfectly fine with it. This is probably what made the person I was explaining to bring up the 'strung along' thing, but I know this girl well enough and she is definitely a type of girl who'd do such a thing.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: legomaestro on February 05, 2014, 02:29:41 PM
She's the type who would do such a thing? Haha. Well if your 'courting' her as you say have you had lunch together before? exchanged digits? met the parents or at least gone out together? These days you don't get on a knee or ask someone out, you just know you're in a relationship.

interesting that you bring this up though

http://imgur.com/a/RmAjE


in the end if you're truly interested then instead of assuming she knows what you feel just ask her out right i guess. or do any one of those things that make it definite that you're going out
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: KagePen on February 05, 2014, 03:25:44 PM
Ah sheet! I meant "NOT the type" -_- I hate it when I leave out words ;o;

Maybe I didn't fully understand 'courting' but I've done  most of those things except for going out on a date or talking to the parents. I aim to though, her parents are intensely strict about letting her have relationships but I honestly want to sit down with them one day and have a private discussion. To clear things up, when I said "courting" I meant it in a way of impressing the girl so she'll decide to accept my feelings. I've already made them clear, full blown confession and everything, all I'm doing now is convincing her to be my girlfriend.

That comic is quite true and as well interesting, you shouldn't pretend to be a friend to get a girl to like you then get pissed off when you get friend zoned. If you think about it, guys get friendzoned because they act like friends with the intention of dating the person, so basically just like how the '@sshole' has an agenda so does the 'nice guy'. Only difference is the @sshole striked while the iron was hot and made his intentions pretty clear from the start without pretending to be something else. I think, @sshole or nice guy, you make your intentions clear from the start, and be honest and open, be something else and you'll stay as that. That's my philosophy.


in the end if you're truly interested then instead of assuming she knows what you feel just ask her out right i guess. or do any one of those things that make it definite that you're going out

That's the thing, I'm not assuming anything, I've made things very clear to her and she understands that. Also, which I forgot to add, being it the final year of highschool for us she said she doesn't really want to date this year so she can focus on studies, but I told her I won't give up on 'courting her' and she told me that she's fine with that. I was honestly happy when she gave that reason, I feel motivated to try harder, I myself believe as 'almost-adults' having relationships would not hinder focus, it's just a matter of setting her heart on fire.

You underestimate the idea of love, Kage. Plenty of people fall into a trance when they're in a relationship be it young or old and they tend to fall behind on their work because they're preoccupied with thoughts of their partner. Then again her excuse totally sounds like a way to let you down easy, that's just what it sounds like though.

If we're talking about friendzoning or such then you're not there. You may not be dating her but it isn't what people would consider the friendzone. It could in fact be classified as being led on since she hasn't turned you down but she also hasn't shown any strong signs of getting into a relationship with you, leading someone on doesn't have to be manipulative, it could just be done for fear of hurting someone or being ridiculed for turning the other person down.

@Litt: Oh, the dreaded "trance", wherein you're blind to seeing the truth in a situation. Science proves that when a person is basically "inlove" with another person they become over confident or foolishly super optimistic. 'tis that which leads poor fellows to the depths of depression when the truth comes out. You see, I understand this very well, what you say may indeed be true, this girl is a very kind person so she could very much be leading me on with the intent of not hurting me. And even as you said, her excuse could be her letting me down easy. But the thing is... What led me to take that first step was these words "When you want something, go and get it. Period." I know very well what I want, and I want it a lot, so much I'll fight my own foolish blinding thoughts and cut to the painful truth."Is she leading me on?" What do I do then? Do I give up so I don't get hurt? Yeah, I'll give up, because we all know winners take the gold when they give up when presented with a daunting problem... Bullsh!t.(no offense) When I said my game plan was to be completely honest with myself I meant it. So she's just not that interested, f*ck that, I'll make her interested. I won't change who I am though, I'll just be a better me. If I give up so easily then I don't even deserve her, and when I say give up I don't mean give up on sticking around til the bitter end, I give up when I stop pushing with all I've got; because when you sit around and wait for things to happen you've given up already.

The whole 'speech' above isn't meant in a way to prove you wrong or attack, I absolutely agree with you. But I want you to see I'm as serious about this as it gets, and then some . You said earlier that guys can easily say they'll improve themselves for a girl but never really do it. Me? I'm starting modeling in a month or two, I've become the most metrosexual dude out there that I'm even over competitive about it. I wash my face 5 - 6 times a day, I brush my hair 15 - 20 times a day, I've even become crazily confident and courageous. I'll admit it, I'm practically obsessed!! And that brings us back to the first thing I said, being inlove blinds you and pumps you with confidence and optimism, but is that a bad thing? I'll just use it. Love to me isn't just a chemical reaction, I don't care what science says, I've seen true love spawn and it's amazing; people in that can climb mountains together no matter how high it is. I've also seen it die, literally, in pure tragedy, just witnessing it happen to someone else made me cry the most sickened tears. Though that's another story, bottom line, it gave me hope.

Do you get me now? "Fall down 7 times get up 8."


@Lego: I see her very often at school so I don't see an issue either haha. But thanks man, I'm going to give it everything I have and if it doesn't work out then maybe I didn't want her enough.

All things can be explained, beaten down with the pointy stick of reality. I'm glad there's still people who proclaim their love and chase it till the tank is empty but I don't believe it's necessary or realistic.

Manliness comes in all forms. Doesn't matter what kinds you like, or if you are even a man, by legal definition or your own.

He survived as far as I know but the catch was even if he pulls through he'll still be blind from the attempt. I didn't read the article since I have no desire to get a load of feels.

I still hold my ideal for a man to be a gentleman but also full of grit. I did grow up in an environment where that was just what people were raised to be though. Not that I don't think you aren't manly for standing up for what you love be it ballet or textile designs but there's no doubt I think manliness is still the man who whisks a woman off her feet and doesn't hesitate to punch a guy when insulted.

It's exactly as it says on the tin cover in that one. Any average man with high confidence and courage will have things go better for them in that department.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: LittRL on February 08, 2014, 10:22:58 AM
I'm not a fan of them. At least not when you put both together. Here's a little(lot) of help from my friend, the dictionary:
Quote
Con·fi·dence noun \?kän-f?-d?n(t)s, -?den(t)s\
the quality or state of being certain :  certitude <they had every confidence of success>
Quote
Cour·age noun \?k?r-ij, ?k?-rij\
the ability to do something that you know is difficult or dangerous

When you're confident you don't really have any recoil from your choices or action because you're so certain of them that even when you fail it's never really your fault. When you're courageous or have courage you do something that may very well destroy you and pick at you for the rest of your life.

It's just me being nitpicky about the definition of the words but I like to put it this way:
When faced with an insurmountable obstacle a confident person will try until they decide it's impossible, a courageous person already decided it was impossible but tries anyways.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Coryn on February 08, 2014, 10:26:29 AM
Well, this is basically how it breaks down I think.

Confidence is an attractive personality trait. That goes for pretty well everybody I think. Sure there will be people who might not be looking for it, but for most, confidence is a good thing.


And you need courage if you're going to get anywhere in romance. Life isn't a romcom, situations just don't happen. 9 times out of 10, if you want to get to know a girl, you're going to need to have the courage to talk to her first.

Post by: legomaestro on February 08, 2014, 12:35:53 PM
Yeah I agree. To be consistently confident you need courage. Sometimes confidence comes because you've got the right factors going for you but only for that time e.g You're confident for when your drunk / got friends cheering you on. But when those factors go away you need courage to push yourself a long.

Ahahaha /sarcasticlaugh. Alcohol has proved me a blind fool and I've proved my friends an ineffective replacement for actual initiative. I attribute confidence to the personality trait because anything other is either courage of foolhardiness born from dulling one's senses or ignoring them. Some nights I look back and remember that I remember what I did and I regret, never let something else take place of actual confidence, ever.

Which is why there is the concentrated version of drinks known as the "shot". Do a couple of tequila shots and you don't need to stay long to make bad choices.

I for one need alcohol to be an active participant in all things social. Going to the club, hanging out with strangers, doing anything at all having to do with strangers, trying to actually have emotions, etc.

@Coryn: I won't lie, I've had some good time with alcohol, but not always... But I'm always a fun person so I never find the need to get drunk to have a good time.

@ Ginger Oh dude? No dancing? I am terrible at dancing, but I love to be the one to get the dances started. When everyone is keeping chill and still getting into the party (mostly by drinking) I just dancing and then the circles form...

Well I used to, until my brother told me straight up that that's the reason I don't get to mingle with the girls in the party. Dancers lose out. You're supposed to keep calm and plant yourself on a wall if you want to get into a conversation or anything like that.

P.S I love shots. My old roomate was great at mixing up stuff. He used vanilla with anything and it mysteriously worked

I believe vanilla is one of the key ingredients in the true Ambrosia. Then again my recipe falls apart at liquidated bacon, strange that.

My favorite technique is down as much as you can as kill it with lemon/lime or strong chase. Anything besides that is Gin & Tonics or beer.

Oh my ducking god, I love dancing  :dance: But seriously, when I go to parties, I either camp over at the snack table, play on the trampoline or chat to the host's parents. I'm a horribly boring person.

What the hell is a voodoo disco hahaha.

Well, they're neat enough I suppose? College ones tend to be at the same venue and many other colleges visit there. It tends to be on an open field near the bar and they bring the music and speakers out. Cars come and park nearby the area, night falls, things happen... for the rest of the weekend.

Never actually gone to the clubs/bars that much so I'm not sure about that scene, but they're decent as well. At least one german visitor who drank like a fish sure enjoyed the party scene here.

Still, I'd love to go to a legitimate stamp-your-hand-with-a-glow-in-the-dark-tatoo-glow-stick-spinning-epileptic-disco-light-flashing-rave-slash-club party

where there is grinding

You're a fan of that stuff, Lego? The place is filled with disgusting things, a loose set of morals, and overpriced drinks. If you want mindless grinding though go to any popular club and you'll find it, I'm sure North America would do fine (from my drunken experiences).

@Lego: It's fun, just don't expect a classy night out where you ask a girl, "Can I buy you a drink?" and expect something more along the lines of walking behind them and beginning to dry hump them like an animal, that is if you haven't vomited or spilled your drink on yourself yet. I'm a fan of romance and the old fashioned so I'd rather wear a suit and with a fine brandy in hand, lean against the counter next to a striking beauty and ask her, "A drink for the lady, if I may?" not that I own a suit, or like brandy, or speak like that. A man can dream. A man can only dream...

@Kage: Nope. Never before and never to come. If I know myself as well I believe i will be alone for exactly the rest of my life and not a day more.

@Ginger: Yes. Maybe not in those exact words, but yes.

There is a show called Suits I have heard of but I know nothing of it.

By the way, on the topic of men and their fancy, in both preference and style, how do you like to suit things up (get all gentleman mode)? Whiskey cooled with stones? A cigar taken from your breast pocket case lit with matches made from a thousand year old tree? Dress up with your friends to play Monopoly?
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: KagePen on February 08, 2014, 03:39:27 PM
*actually dressed up once whilst playing monopoly* ?.?

I usually go full mode (tie, vest, blazer,suede kicks), but that's 'cause my suital wardrobe isn't too big (even though it's a majority of my clothes). I have a fedora but never wear it because I like to show off my Gatsby comb-over  8) xD. I do fantazise about the whiskey glass and cigar, maybe when I'm a little older though :l... hmm, I wear predominantly black with white or black shirt, but sometimes I like to mix it up with some purple or red :3 How about you gent' ?

Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: Nairbons on February 08, 2014, 06:49:00 PM
Trench coats and suits are all pretty grand if you've got the body to compliment the look. Not based around weight or anything, but there are just certain outfits/looks that some people just have more of a natural affinity for.

For example: I have a pretty big head. Not in an egotistical sense, but physically.  Just a huge-ass head. Fortunately, I've got a larger framed body, so everything seems A-OK in perspective. The problem comes from whenever I put on a hat and people see my weirdo build with new context. The illusion is suddenly shattered, and children on the street run in fear from the pale Shrek that has suddenly revealed himself to the world.

But yeah, as I continue to get more and more in-shape, there are whole worlds of new wardrobe options that become feasible options. Maybe not affordable, but feasible.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsUsVbTj2AY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsUsVbTj2AY)

You've really got to be aware of what does and doesn't compliment your body. Remember that it's VERY easy to put on a trench coat and come off as a total creeper rather than the suave badass you're aiming for.

I haven't worn a suit since Sunday School. I've wanted one for a while just for the occasion but thy are expensive and I could do without one. Most I can do now is wear some dress pants, shoes, and shirt.

I always thought trenchcoats were cool too until it seemed to become pretty common with anti-socialites in my town, now I settle for whatever's warm.

I found a trench coat in my dads closet once and I would wear it once in a while, it was some good leather. Though I didn't look the best in it back then. I need to find it again.

I wish I had the funds for more clothes, I only have one blazer and it isn't the best but it fits me, I also want one for school (we have to wear uniforms here.) One thing I really want is a gold or silver chain just for the occasion when I wanna go latino badass and walk around with my shirt undone 8)

Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: LittRL on February 09, 2014, 03:19:56 AM
I'm not sure if I ever understood the religion. Sometimes it seems like a way of life and other times I hear stories about hundreds of gods, some of which fend of evil spirits and others that rank in the celestial royalty. Stuff i confusing but I wear the necklace only because I feel obligated to for my parents. I have two, the buddha and a cheaper jade piece from vacation. They always get tangled up and so I always wonder why women ever bother with so much jewelry in the first place, I only have two and it actually makes me angry all the time.
Title: Re: Women, sexuality and other bull....mostly women
Post by: KagePen on February 09, 2014, 03:53:01 AM
I'm not too sure about the religion myself but I think the more realistic side is the way of life. My parents took me from church to church when I was a kid and tried to force me to follow the bible which led me to be rebellious in any way I could, luckily I was moved away from the city when I was 10 and seriously considering experimenting with nicotine. For two years I lived in the midst of nature and it molded a large part of me into what I am today. I thank nature for my own sense of wisdom. I still read some books of the bible like Proverbs, there's some good stuff in that book. But I am not a fan of Religion and relinquish going to churches, sometimes the people in those places are sick to the core.

Buuut enough about religion... In the sense of jewelry I myself don't own much at all, though I really want a large golden watch :p and a diamond stud :3

A good watch is also the mark of a traditional man. I'm a fan of them, as is my dad, but I'd like to take it a few steps further by carrying around cloth handkerchiefs as well. I wonder why the gentleman's way isn't taught anymore, it always appealed to me.

I've got an FMA pocket watch that cost me about $20 but I don't think that says, "I am a gentleman. Ask me the time." it isn't about folding the handkerchief, it's about offering it to a lady about to sneeze or who has tears in her eyes.

I'm usually a pessimistic person. So I always think negative instead of positive. Although, a bright light beams through my foggy window every once and a while.

All I can say is just keep pushing. I have the same problem you do and recently I've been doing a good job of fighting it. Motivation for me usually comes after seeing something that inspires me to be motivated or sometimes I just get tired of being down all the time and the motivation randomly just comes to me.

That is true but you gotta know that there is a double edge sword to this. Sometimes if you wait too long, the things you want will become forever out of reach. Sometimes you gotta go out there and take what you want. Then again, I guess it all depends on what you want exactly.

That's sure true too. I believe that when you don't take risks or make decisions it chips away at your character and confidence, as does taking chances adds to it. Though you can never be too careful sometimes, "the inches we need are all around us", timing plays a part in everything, just depends on the root intention of waiting.

Regretted letting a (the one and only I ever had *eternally sad face here*) relationship die because I was a bastard. Regretted not asking them out sooner. Regretted things I said when plastered. Regretted cutting one of them slack and accepting to be in the friendzone. I hate the friendzone. I want to destroy the friendzone for the sake of romance. It's not as bad as the foodzone but still.

edit: notice the biggest regrets are usually the things you didn't do

Just kidding :D But totally agree with Lego, biggest regrets I had was what I didn't do or say. Also I used to wait for the girl to ask me out as opposed to me doing it out of a fear of being rejected and then just being awkward friends. It's silly thinking about it now. Just go balls out and go for it I say!

Oh and a man's best friend. Alcohol, always the answer for many of life's problems and 99% of the one's involving women too :P

Huh, that's some interesting stuff all round. Normally my problem is being too unaware that a girl likes me (typical anime character here) and not finding out till it's too late. I guess my love for food overrides all other emotional sensibilities  :sleep:

Post by: Vacant on May 12, 2014, 10:55:26 AM
Yeah, I have the same problem, I'm just oblivious until it's far too late to do anything about it. If I'm being honest this scenario has literally just happened to me, didn't realise the girl liked me, until she moved away last week and her friend told me. I was like Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!! But what can you do, I don't worry about it too much as I kinda just think if it's meant to be it'll work out fine in the end.
 

And I agree there Ginge, In Nottingham girls outnumber the guys at university roughly 3 to 1!

I've done a lot of sh*t to girls that I regret and I certainly paid for it dearly. That's all I have to say.

Actually, the ratio is roughly 55% women and 45% men in America. It's predicted that if this trend continues within 20 years or so, the ratio will turn into 60-65% women and 40-35% men.

Biggest regret was probably ignoring them for most of my life and now that I'm (legally) an adult I'm beyond inept at conversing with them. I just come off as a dirty apeman when I open my mouth since I'm used to talking to guys who have no boundaries as far as conversation topics go.

More or less my fault. I avoided women since elementary until now because of the drama that tended to go on with them. Not saying guys don't have their own kind of drama but emotional issues are out of my expertise.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: Vio on May 12, 2014, 05:42:29 PM
Wow, I'm the complete opposite of you LittRL. O.o

I had avoided men until in grade 9. As a kid, most of the guys around me only cared about cars, sports, and fighting. I didn't had the same interest and didn't care about them. So, I tended to hang out with the girls. Heck, right now I'm the only male student in my ECE classes.   
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: LittRL on May 12, 2014, 05:44:58 PM
I'm not really interested in cars and sports and fighting are for doing, not watching so I also didn't hang out will the more "manly" men. Usually just joined the nerd cliques or found a friend in a class and chatted to them about whatever.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: Coryn on May 12, 2014, 05:56:25 PM
yeah, as someone who mostly stuck around fellow nerds, there weren't too many girls.


once I got to college though my balance of male to female friends ratio shifted pretty dramatically though. my third year i spent way more time around girls than guys. which was good for me.

There are a couple of things I've regretted with women, but there's one that gets me to this day...
 
I regretted going out with this one girl because she was really interested in me and she kept pushing the subject, but I didn't want anything to do with her at first. Then I realized that could've been the only chance I could get of getting a girlfriend. So my dumb self ignored my first instinct and rushed into it without thinking. I guess you guys can imagine what happened next.

I'm never doing that *Censored* again.

Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: h_musick on May 13, 2014, 05:27:49 PM
Yup... Also, I see allot of people break up in college cause the other has too much work to do and not enough time for their girl/boy friend. I think that is.... dumb.... Yeah, I have really descriptive words today. Anyway, if someone breaks up with you because of that, then they probably are really selfish. Or if you feel left out because your girl/boy friend is busy with school......... get over it.

I have dated guys just cause I didn't want to hurt their feelings by saying "no" before... Ends up being pretty painful in the end. I definitely think it's better to have said no from the start, then to date for months and hurting them worse.

Ah, the joys of teenage romance. The source (and profit)'of many romantic comedies.

What's the worst flirt anyone ever did/responded to? I had one today where my history buddy said she liked my shirt and out of reflex is said "thanks, I like you too" and so the awkward rumours began...
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: legomaestro on May 20, 2014, 07:05:27 AM
Totally stealing that.

On the awkward flirting it's always me doing the awkward flirting. Though, I cannot beat the one where my friend asked, "How do you keep your hair so silky?"

The reply? "Um... I wash it."

Classic.

Not really flirting, but a kid no more than 15 years old, once pointed to me and then my missus at the time and said "Hey mate I'd absolutely smash (Have sexual intercourse with) her".

Due to him being smaller and younger, threatening/bitchslapping him wasn't an option, but I had to say something. The something that came out of my mouth was "Thanks.....me too". I then proceeded to raise my hand to offer him a high five.

He didn't except the high five and funnily enough, neither did my girlfriend :P She didn't find it a good retort for some reason.

I have had several stalkers (even though I'm not attractive or anything, I guess I just have that kind of personality that attracts people like THAT)... IT IS NOT fun, cute, or anything close. People looking in your windows, sending weird messages, and visiting you at work (somehow they got hold of my schedule) is just as scary and creepy as people say it is. They build up an imaginary relationship in their head.

Beggar says, "Chicken must be really delicious. I wish I could have some."

King says, "Trust me, it's nothing special. It's just meat that's all."

Beggar says, "Screw you, king. You got to taste it anyways! I haven't even had the chance! So until I get to get tired of eating chicken then you have no right to complain!"

It could work, but there's always gonna be bonus points awarded for having the stones to ask a lady out face-to-face. It's the sort of thing that takes guts, and everybody recognizes that it's far from a comfortable situation. You don't have to be Casanova all the time. You just need enough charisma to ask the question. It's one of those "ripping off a bandage" situations.

I think that writing a letter could probably work. Just bust out the fancy penmaship and some honest words. I still advocate the ol' face-to-face method, but it is far from being the only effective method of courtship.

As for pursuing the same girl for years...

Ech. I tried that. Didn't go so good. But, herein I shall expose the stupidity of the "friendzone" and the stupid, stupid expectations that "When Harry Met Sally" set up in my head (great movie, great writing, great points, crummy ending message).

If you become friends with a lady, and stay good friends with that lady, then hey! That's swell. Friends are nice.

If you become friends with a girl with the hope/intention of using that friendship to get a more intimate relationship later, you's a scumbag.

If you happen to start thinking of one of your totally platonic lady-pals with romantic urges and non-platonic thoughts, then you're in a pretty poopy predicament. Because you just *censored*ed up. That's your problem, amigo. And believe me, it is indeed a problem, because you've started down a path that typically doesn't end well. That's not to say that there are only negative outcomes, but they are the most likely to occur. Let's take a look, shall we? Your options are:

1) Remain friends. You keep your sick, perverted thoughts locked away. Because that's what it takes to keep civilization alive. Plenty of fish in the sea, Romeo. When you do find that special someone, though, you've got a cool friend that can help look out for you. Girls are weird, and it helps to have access to the other team's playbook.

2) You ask her out, and she's not cool with it. Uh-oh. That friend of yours is now aware that you have been having dirty thoughts about her. Maybe you haven't actually been having dirty thoughts, but that's totally what she thinks. So now there's THAT little tidbit of information hanging over your friendship. Like the Dagger of Damocles that's made of weird, one-way sexual tension. Maybe you two drift apart. That genuinely sucks. Nobody likes losing a friend. But at least you had the balls to come clean. That took guts. You could probably stay friends, but it would really help if you managed to find another girl to be the outlet for your romantic affections. It's always good to be an honest man, but DON'T try to play the guilt card and awkwardly force her into a relationship. That's some next-level douchebaggery that nobody should try.

3) You ask her out, and she's totally down to date you. This is rare, but pretty cool. Senpai has finally noticed you, and after your months/years/decades of friendship, you've successfully navigated yourself around the awkward conversations that might come up in two or three dates.


Because here's the thing, ya big mook: dating is pretty fun. As awkward as it might initially feel, asking a girl out on a date is exactly how you find out if you're compatible or not. Dating someone isn't a lifelong commitment. It could become that, but nothing is set in stone. It's an easy way to set up a relationship that both parties are aware could lead to some more intimate stuff. Who knows. You might get lucky, and she's the one. Or, you might get lucky and... y'know(a long series of convoluted winks, raised eyebrows and nudging gestures).

If you meet a nice lady, and she meets your expectations of whatever stuff you mind find attractive, then ask her out. Being rejected sucks, but the immediate risk is always worth the long-term marital bliss that could easily come out of it. If you don't know if you're compatible right away, then that's what dating is for.

He who hesitates is lost.

It's not a matter of time, it's a matter of timing.

The early bird gets the worm.

etc.


Maybe if you gave us more details here, I could offer specific advice.

Well, I'd say first of all to ask yourself how you honestly think she sees you. Do you think she see's you as just one of her friends and interacts with you the same way she does with any other male friends?  Or does she treat you differently?
   For instance,  does she message you for seemingly random things?  Or do her friends seem to know a lot about you, as to imply she speaks a lot about you or do they even tease her when you're around?  These could be indications that she may have feelings for you but is too scared to make the first move.
              If you think she might then go for it dude, because eventually there will be a time when is too late to do so and you'll always wish you had the chance. Oh and definitely do it face to face.

The redeeming part of the situation is this though: If you to are actually honest to god good friends, she'll be able to work past it if you can agree to do so as well.

If you ask and she turns you down, the best thing to do is to react calmly and nonchalantly. If it goes south, making a big deal out of it is the last thing you should do. Let the question itself be the high point of emotion.


If you're still deciding whether to ask of course. It becomes a good idea to find yourself a spy. Someone behind the lines who can dig up some information on her romantic interests. Maybe have the spy inquire about you in a sort of 'you hang around this guy a lot, anything going on with him?' way. I've used a spy or two in my time, hasn't failed me yet.

I'm trying to become asexual, like seriously. I realized I want my goal more than a relationship and all this lovey dovey stuff is just counterproductive to it. I'm starting to become like Lit, I'm starting to believe love is an illusion of our instinct to reproduce. My efforts in 'getting the girl' only drew the attention of others except the one I wanted, but knowing I won't like any of them like I did her makes giving attention back those other girls a douche-move imo. So yeah, maybe 'she' is the same in that retrospect, so I kind of get why it didn't work out. And even if it did, I wouldn't of been able to love her like I do manga, so yeah, I'm just going to focus on my one true love :)

Sorry, but I don't think you can "decide to be asexual." You're attracted to women because that's how you are. You changed change that. Anymore than a homosexual can change who they love and feel attraction to. We're effectively born the way we are. I think you'll find you're just disillusioned because nothing is going your way. Love is based in the chemical reactions in our brains, but it feels so much more than that. And it is. There so things science has to shake its head at and say, "Let it be."

Now I love Manga and Anime as much as the next person, but seriously...you'd give up Sex for it!?

               I don't know a whole lot about Asexuality, but like Syntax said a lot of it can come from just how your brain's wired at birth. Of course I'm sure there are other things that can factor into it from a social/environmental perspective, such as abuse or trauma, or religious or moral views.
               Perhaps you just haven't found the right person yet, if you feel they're getting in the way of your goals. When you meet that person, they will BE your goal. 
               Then again, it's your life dude, I can't possibly relate to your situation or circumstances, but that's the amazing thing in this world, you're free to choice whatever you want man. If you wanna be Asexual fair play.

Asexual is not something you can become by choice. You can be a celibate with or without the religious part, were you have attraction to a specific or both genders but refrain from having sexual contact.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: Coryn on June 07, 2014, 11:37:39 AM
Like Syntax said, you don't decide to be asexual. No more than you decide to be hetero, homo, bi, pan, or what have you.

I think the word you want is 'celibate', which is just refraining from sex as a lifestyle choice. Also could mean refraining from getting married, but it works both ways.

I agree with Vacant  :hmm: It's a mixture of Biological, Cognitive and Enviromental cues that can alter your sexual preference. Putting it down to just Biological factors makes it far too deterministic and takes away the free will of an individual to consciously choose what they prefer. Being in an enviroment where it's looked down upon or where it's accepted can shape an individuals views towards it whilst they develop a mindset on what they prefer.

Taking Kagepen as a case study, he could either be biologically programmed to be Asexual (Or has a hormonal imbalance rendering him unable to get stimulated), he could have been raised in an enviroment which looks down upon frisky behaviour, or his cognition might work in a sense where being Asexual is more rewarding (less stress, sense of identity) then other sexualities.

Ok maybe the right word is celibate, I used asexual in the wrong context.

Anymore than a homosexual can change who they love and feel attraction to. We're effectively born the way we are. I think you'll find you're just disillusioned because nothing is going your way.

I think it's more about how you're raised than what is biologically done to you. Sexual attraction is based on the instinct to reproduce, homosexuals cannot reproduce so there is no way they are born that way. I'm not being anti-gay with that statement, it's just a fact. Now, I admit I used the term 'asexual' wrong, celibate is the word as some have pointed out. I am not disillusioned, I am just goal-oriented, and that ultimately helped me make this sacrifice. I don't see anything wrong with love except that it doesn't go well together with my goals. If I was ever disillusioned it was before I made this decision, when you have big goals it isn't the best idea to drag along someone else.

Awww man this thread made me sad. Got dumped by girlfriend back in March after 5 years and 11 months... It's still really hard to deal with. Writing here was actually one of the things that helped me take my mind off it. Problem is now I am revising... which is boring as hell and I don't have time to write, but everytime my mind wanders - which is quite often nowadays it seems - I start thinking about stuff again and it sucks.

Asexual means feeling no sexual attraction to anything despite gender. And in Biology also refers to when something can reproduce without the need for sexual reproduction e.g. sperm and eggs. - Which I think would be funny to see in humans - one day when you are ready, you'd split in half and both grow out again and you'd have two of you! :P

I think it's good to be goal orientated though - Corey Taylor gave a careers speech at oxford university, uk, talking about how you should aim for things you are good at - even though in his case he said even if you don't like doing it -, and in doing so you would enjoy reaping the rewards. Now there's no saying that can't be a love interest or life partner while you're at it.

Post by: Syntax on June 07, 2014, 03:58:58 PM
Not going to start the sexuality debate, but people not choose to be gay. Did you choose to be straight? Of course not. It's the same for them. Biology is the biggest factor in that, because you have to be wired a certain way to be straight or gay, even if environmental factor made to realize it one way or another. Numerous animals display homosexual and bisexual behavior, so do not even begin to argue that it's unnatural or unbiological to be gay. Some people just have a hard time accepting the truth. Like back when women and blacks had no rights. People had trouble accepting equality then too.

Post by: NO1SY on June 07, 2014, 04:16:00 PM
I wouldn't count it so much as a choice as much as a developed interest.

But I wouldn't go so far as to say it's biological - biologically it doesn't make sense as the ability to not procreate actually impedes the passing on of your gene pool - surprise surprise :P

But we live in a world where world peace and health and safety are actually major things preventing natural selection and evolution for humans, so in the grand scheme of things, with 7-8billion humans on earth, sexual orientation is not going to impact our ability/inability to evolve - so from a scientific standpoint I have no problems with any sexual orientation.

The thing people should note on a social level is that people are people no matter their interests and you will either find them amicable or awful as people. Personally, I am surrounded by loads of different trains of thought as I study near Brighton - which is a centre for gay people, hippies, stoners, students, tourists... you name it! - so for me it's interesting to see and for a lot of people it's fun. Last year in my uni accommodation I lived with a Gay Italian Third year, he was so eccentric and flamboyant it was fantastic and the food was awesome! But at the end of the day I had the same conversations with him that I would have had with any of the straight friends or friends I grew up with at home.

Genes have very little to do with what sex one is attracted to...and obesity is normally linked to either thyroid issues or self-esteem issues. The government also doesn't really step in to help with the obesity though

Nuuuu!!!! The conversation has started!

I have NO CLUE where I stand on this anymore. I have always been attracted to men and women, BUT my religion was pretty clear on that. So I always thought there was something REALLY screwed up with me.
So I have allot of love for people who "came out of the closet". I get a lot of hate from my christian friends for it... and my family.
I still never told them how I have felt personally, I'm pretty sure they took the hint though. I remember last year my mom saying "you're straight though, cause you're married."  As if my marrying a man made me straight... I guess in her mind if I married a woman I would be a lesbian?

Anyways... It's all confusing. And I still haven't said anything to my family... not even my husband. I'm sure that conversation would go REALLY well... along with the one about not considering myself a christian OR messianic.   :push: I keep telling myself "who needs to know anyway?"

I have read several articles that say there is a "gay gene", that it was the parent that carried the gene, but the child of that person would be homosexual. That means that people who carry the gene are having kids. Also, you have to remember that we carry a lot of genes that are just not being expressed.
 I think the research in that area is really interesting.

I will say many Christians are very hateful towards homosexuals....I don't support it but I won't treat you different than anybody else >.> I am getting all annoyed with people bashing my beliefs to the ground saying I can't think that way...anyways back to the topic many people don't like talking about it because they don't want to be viewed differently than they already are

Christians all have different views about homosexuality depending on the branch. All depends on how Conservative/Liberal they are. Also several theologians dating back to the 1900's have debated about homosexuality in a positive light with religion. All depends on interpretation I suppose.

I'm a Christian, which I don't really mention online because usually people see me differently and some even become afraid of me because they fear I'll hate on them. But I still want to tune into this conversation. It makes me really sad that that's how Christians are viewed. Just because I'm not homosexual and I don't personally believe in it, doesn't mean I'm going to hate homosexuals. I still see them as any other human being. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and who am I to say anything about it? It annoys me when Christians are hateful towards, well, anybody. That's not how I see Christianity. I see Christianity as being accepting and loving of everyone. What ever happened to love thy neighbor?

I'm personally around Christians who are hateful towards homosexuals, so I don't know if that's what it's like elsewhere, but it's what I'm exposed to. It's honestly aggravating.

Glad the sexuality and religion discussion didn't escalate into personal attacks. Score one for MR. Anywhere else on the net and you're doomed.

Personally, I hate overly sexualized characters who clearly only exist to appeal to a certain group of people. Girls with huge breasts, bishounen men, lolis; they all have unsettling amounts of sexualization that bothers me. Focus on making me feel something for the character other than a desire to get with them. Really, if you watch anime solely for fanservice, may the universe have mercy on your soul.

Mmhmm. My mom and sisters are accepting of it, they are supportive of my art, and will watch the Miyazaki films with me. They all like Totoro. ::)
But the rest... Are just pretty closed-minded. Even the ones who don't voice it, I can see they don't like what I'm doing... I wish I could explain it to them, but again, they're closed-minded.

^Same for me, pretty much. My family likes Miyazaki and that's about it (my sister watches some other anime, though, and draws some). I can count the number of my anime-liking friends on two hands and the ones that watch more than shonen, on one. Not that shonen is bad, but I don't encounter a general love for the artform itself in very many people.

I have three older sisters, and they all have different opinions haha. The sister closest to my age has no interest in anime at all, but will watch the Miyazaki films and loves Totoro. The next one up, I'm pretty sure she just pretends to like it because her boyfriend loves it. The oldest one watches it, but doesn't really feel the same way about it as I do. I watch it seriously, and I use it to study art and writing. She only watches it for comedy, really.

My brothers liked Mushishi and one of them enjoyed Brotherhood, but complained about the slapstick. That's also something: my brothers are as critical as I am, and while I feel confident that I could defend a good anime, I always feel like they're constantly evaluating it whenever they walk by. That's social anxiety for you, though.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull

I watch anime seriously, as a critic and student of fine art. I believe it's a truly deep and underrated medium. But my family doesn't really see that. And people I meet usually don't share my passion or tastes. It's hard to find people who love it as much as I do from an academic and entertainment standpoint.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: MissChurro on June 07, 2014, 08:21:46 PM
Exactly. I have a strong passion for the art of anime and manga, and I take it pretty seriously. The only reason I started watching anime is because I was already drawing it before I even saw one. It means a lot to me, and I've always seen the anime/manga style as truly beautiful. My family doesn't see it the way I do. I know very few people who see it the way I do. It's a shame...

I agree! But when I think about it that way, I feel like I have unrealistic expectations for a relationship...

Think of it as having high standards for the happiness you want from life. I don't believe I have unattainable expectations, just a powerful desire to be happy in the best way I can.

Could you imagine quadruplets though? All that stretchy belly afterwards...

Ugh. Imagine. Four babies. Crying and screaming. They need to be fed. Changed. Probably all at the same time. Carrying four babies around with you when you go shopping. Trying to put four babies to sleep. All after carrying said four babies for months and then giving birth to them all.
...No.

Think of it as having high standards for the happiness you want from life. I don't believe I have unattainable expectations, just a powerful desire to be happy in the best way I can.

Ahh that's a very wise way to put it!

Indeed, their native population is actually decreasing so they have to really on immigration in order to avoid an ageing general population. The causes are mostly due to women being very economically empowered (can sustain a job and life without husband), virtual online girlfriend simulators, general attitude of focusing on work above all else and strip clubs becoming a heck lot popular.

I've basically heard that women there are fed up with the way men treat them and decide not to marry or date. I don't blame them. Also, Japan has notoriously low immigration. It's going to have to go up a lot to help their population.

As far as marriage, kids, and relationships go, they're probable for me, but after a year of my youthful ambition being torn down, I don't really know where my life is going, so it might be a long time down the road.

Could vary depending on the area of Japan  :hmm: Urban areas are easier for women to get jobs, but rural is much harder (and more traditional) for women to get jobs. I've heard contradicting accounts in their attitude to men, some say they don't mind (since it's quite literally drilled into their culture) whilst others are annoyed (empowering from jobs and such)

I've never given a pickup line and have never received any good ones. I generally avoid flirting, because most girls who flirt with me are of an age difference of at least five years, younger or older. It wouldn't be so much of a problem if I didn't have siblings that age.

If I were a girl for a day I would spend it doing all of the things that I deem 'girlishly-enjoyable'.

Don't get me wrong i'm not pigeonholing men and woman here by saying something like Girls have to like pink and Boys have to like Blue, and Girls play with dolls and boys play video-games. But some things are considered girly and somethings are considered masculine, and sometimes for me the girly things look/are enjoyable or fun!

For instance, beer for the most part, tastes a bit crap, I like it sometimes, but I would MUCH rather have a nice fruity cocktail. However if I'm at the bar or pub with my mates, I can't order that without being ripped into. So to end my day as a girl I would probably try out lots of the 'girly' drinks that I just wouldn't get normally!

In the LAD culture of britain, Beer is a Man's drink and alcopop's, Cocktails and the like are considered girls drinks. This is despite the fact that these things often have a far higher alcohol % than regular lagers. I pretty much go for whatever I fancy at the time, could be a few ciders, a few pints, a few shots, a pitcher from Rev's (guaranteed to get you bladdered!) whatever. I can outdrink a lot of my mates though so they don't really take the piss for what you're drinking.

I don't know either... but to my mates it seems that even cider is freakin girly! Also the only time it was acceptable for me to drink WKD was when I had to strawpedo 5 of them in under a minute to win a WKD visor at the pub for my friends 19th... the rest of the time, anything sweet or fruity is just not manly enough! I think it's a British thing...

there are other 'girly' things I would do, like spa treatments and manicures and pedicures etc but that was the first thing that came to mind.

                       I enjoy a good drink, not as much as I used to, but that's partly due to the hours I work. It's true that Beer is something that has to grow on you. I love an ice cold beer now, but I remember when I was younger it tasted rag nasty. I'm lucky in a way that even when I am absolutely smashed, I still know where I am and have some of my wits about me. If I was the kind of drunk who just passed out and forgot everything and was a liability on those around me, I'd probably reconsider drinking in the first place :P

Don't drink and drive, that's common sense. It's okay to condemn those who do so and condemn them I shall.

On a side note, don't know if this ties into the "Other Bull" part of the topic but I think it might. If you don't mind sharing, what was the first time you tried Alcohol/got drunk?

Mine was when I was 13, me and a bunch of friends down the woods sharing a few 2 ltr bottles of the cheapest, nastiest cider you can imagine.

Let me be clear, I'm by no means advocating the use of Illegal Substances. I tried some stuff when I was young, had some fun and then moved on. It was part of growing up and quite normal where I am. If you choose to do drugs, that's your prerogative, but I'd always encourage caution and  know what you're getting into and the risks involved.

My family has a horrible history of addiction. From drugs to alcohol to gambling to porn. Some have gone so far as to steal significant sums of money to get what they want.

Break the trend, I suppose. That's how I am with domestic abuse. My family has a history of it, with the males always physically and emotionally abusing their wives and children. I experienced my father do it to my mother and me, but I don't have the same temper issues. In fact, I'm very mellow. The thought of hurting another human being repulses me.

Break the trend, I suppose. That's how I am with domestic abuse. My family has a history of it, with the males always physically and emotionally abusing their wives and children. I experienced my father do it to my mother and me, but I don't have the same temper issues. In fact, I'm very mellow. The thought of hurting another human being repulses me. I guess the cycle has to end somewhere.

I agree.
I hate, hate, HATE how people seem to think its perfectly acceptable to say BS like.
"I smoke/drink cause my parents did it." Or other negative traits from family members.

Serious mode.
My family has a history of mental illness. Not on one side either. Its pretty relevant on both sides.
Cause of an issue I was having in high school it caused me to drop out and receive therapy.
The therapist started to called out my family history and said straight to my face, I'm sub par compared to other people cause of my families history.

Then gave me some pills that would help with my anxiety. I told him, if its truly my state of mind and just an anxiety issue wouldnt it be better to work on improving my self esteem?
Through improving my diet and exercise? (Cause at the time I was 180 lbs and pretty weak.)

Didnt even take a second opinion on my suggest and just told me to keep taking the pills.
When they wouldnt work they'd simply increase the dosage.

I didnt follow they're advice. And basically healed myself with my methods and convictions I earned through my job. I said to myself when I started to freak out was.
"This company hired me to get tasks and assigned duties completed. I should show my respect back by getting those tasks done as best I could."
I even asked tons of stupid questions to my co-workers/boss into how to complete said tasks.
After a while they started to respect me and my determined hard work.

TL;DR:
Therapy is BS. People are to scared to work towards goals and relapse to older more comfortable methods.
I weight 150 lbs and I'm one of the strongest dudes there now.
And havent touched those pills they prescribed to my in years.

But I don't know if you should go around telling people that therapy is total BS. if it didn't do anybody any good we wouldn't do it. It has it's merits, even if it doesn't work in all cases.

              Find what works for you dude and stick with it, I'm always happy to hear when people who face adversity pick themselves up and push on :)
              I agree with Coryn though, I have a close friend who has gotten a lot better since starting therapy. So I wouldn't write it completely off, since I guess each Practise or solution to each issue is different. 

@Syntax, don't worry about it all man. It's always better to talk about a problem than bottling it up. 
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: FreezingCicada on June 09, 2014, 12:12:22 PM
Yes I agree.
I think I just got an a**hole for a therapist.
Cause they dude was trying to look like Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man.)
So I shouldn't have trusted anything coming out his mouth.

But in most cases I believe pills and therapy should be a supplement to help ease you through things.
While you work to improve your overall self.

Not just extremes as one over the other.

Therapy doesn't work for some people, but I've seen it work for others. Sure, I have a lot of issues, but therapy wouldn't have helped me. I'm the type of person who has to work through it alone. Not everyone can do that, and there isn't anything wrong with approaching the issue in another way.

I have heard a lot of really good things about therapy, but you have to go to the right person. I also had a weird-o for a therapist when I was a teenager. Kinda put me off the idea for a while. Sometimes it's just good to have someone to talk to though, even if they aren't fixing all your problems.

You do get some weird therapists out there... my aunt had a problematic daughter and the therapist told her to praise the child no matter what. One refund later, she never trusted psychologists ever again.
But yeah, therapy works for some, doesn't work for all. You also get different kind of therapists; Behaviourists, Cognitive, Psychodynamic (Where they blame all problems on penis envy!), and such. It comes up quite a lot in my psychology lessons.

Depends on the therapist. It's unfortunate that there are therapists who believe drugs are the only answer, and others who might refuse drugs to those who need them. The former is usually the most harmful, though, as psychological drugs have the worst side-effects and can sometimes magnify the issue itself. Glad you overcame your anxiety, though. I don't have horrible anxiety and have only had one attack due as much to my caffeine intake as anything else, but I know it's difficult to deal with, particularly in a work setting.

Drugs can really help some people, and their medication is sometimes the only thing keeping them up. A lot of the issues are due to chemical function in the brain, so medicine can help. Though the ultimate goal should be to get people to function without the medicine.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: NO1SY on June 09, 2014, 12:36:00 PM
I went for a therapy session recently - at my uni, part of the service is 6 free counselling sessions if a student needs them.

Anyways I was feeling really down in the dumps because my grandmother - who has raised me as much as my parents - had been diagnosed with cancer and then my long term girlfriend broke up with me about a month later, I felt really sucky and it was affecting my motivation and my studies. I am quite a resilient and logical person though so I was able to just straighten out my mind and get on with things a bit, but sometimes you just need to talk to someone who isn't connected.

So I decided - and it was recommended - that I go for counselling. But the problem with a lot of therapists/counsellors - especially at uni's - is that they've heard it all before. A good counsellor will not let this get to them, but poor counsellors become apathetic, which is what this guys was like. So in the end I felt I got more out of talking to my famiily and friends than I did talking to him and haven't been back.

It depends on what you feel you need and how you are feeling as well as how you find your counsellor/therapist to be I think.

But whatever helps people get through life - I know one of my friends back home has had a lot of counselling and was singing it's praises.

I agree. I'm just saying that, in some cases, drugs can have worse psychological side-effects than the problem itself. Not all cases, though, and there have been some triumphs with and without drugs.

Exactly my point.
My therapist however didnt see that or didnt care.
Which is weird, cause they told me he was the highly respected in Winnipeg. >_>;

But yeah. I stopped taking my medication after when they increased and went to pick up it up.
Only to wait for 10-15 mins while the pharmacist called the hospital checking if the dosage was correct.

I even had an old medical book on the drug I was prescribed.
They sides effects where pretty nasty and worse when you suddenly stop. (I did that. >.>)
Though I didnt feel any of those side effects. So I guess I got lucky. xD

And having worked in a doctors surgery that caters for a lot of students for close to 3 years, I completely agree about the medicine. Sometimes, it's the only thing that people respond well too, but they have to learn to live without it at some point.

I have actually been really impressed with the power of music to help the mind recently though. I was reading an interview with the frontman of August burns Red about 2 years ago, and he was asked "What is the most amazing thing a fan has ever told you about listening to your music?" Now they are devout christians and was expecting him to talk about how their Metalcore was played at a local church or how it converted numerous people or something. BUT it was actually a fan who had reached a really low point in his life and had gotten addicted to Heroine, and by listening to the song Composure - which is my favourite song at the moment, he weened himself off of all drug use and had been sober for 2 Years.

So sometimes, you just have to find that one thing in life that really perks you up.

Yeah, they're probably the most recalled drugs on the market. A friend-of-mine's brother ended up committing suicide while taking a drug that was eventually recalled for being linked to suicide. Drugs can help, but it's best to be careful about them and not to use them if you don't need them.

Different things help different people. I probably wouldn't love anime and manga the way I do if I hadn't had the kind of life I have. They've helped me when I was really low, and I can't thank their existence enough for that. They helped me escape from the day to day challenges, but also led me to discover writing and Japanese translation, things I want to do for the rest of my life.

Here in England, we write the girls name on a potato and throw it at them, in order to gain favour with the fertility god  ::)
Really? Only in England? I've been doing that in America for years.

Random question I swear is not related to me

What does the bro code say again about dating the sister of a friend?
It's generally the right thing to talk to your friend about it, whether you date her or not.

@Paipis that was a previous discussion and it's properly filed under 'other bull' hehe
I just think it's telling of MR members' love lives.

It really depends on your relationship to your friend. For instance when I was in high school, I had a really good friend, and his sister was of fair attraction. Now she was about 3 years younger than me (which is a pretty substantial difference when you're 17), so I never really considered it. But beyond that, I spent way too much time around him and his family, to the point that she already felt like a sister to me as well. And that's a dangerous mindset to have.

but as the other's have said, always talk to your friend first. otherwise you run the risk of making two relationships really awkward and not just one.

Interesting. My best friend is definitely the kind of guy who'd ask me before doing anything. My sister is a bit of a looker, so she gets a fair amount of attention. That's worrisome for an older brother, I suppose. But generally I don't expect my friends to be interested in her.

Now it's the part of the show where Musick comes out and talks about random, personal things....

Well guys... you've been with me through my marriage... now we get to celebrate a divorce.
so.... cheers I guess... It's like a happy/sad thing. Happy because I finally have the guts to do something for myself even if my family disagrees. Happy that I don't have to be controlled and isolated by a stinky, aggressive, mama's boy a**hole. Happy that my son is starting to be himself again after four years and that my daughter is starting to talk more when she is with me.
It's sad though because I feel like I completely failed. Does anyone else feel like that (I guess after a break up)? Maybe it's different for divorce. I'm not really sure.


My advise... well not really mine I guess:

"You can't marry a man you just met."

Dude I went through a breakup that was really painful for me earlier in the year but I think divorce is a whole other level. You had your kids to worry about and probably a lot of politics, on top of your own personal feelings.

It is tough, and I don't want to try to tell you how you should be feeling because I honestly don't know and it's probably a very individual experience as every relationship is different. But I think that feeling as if you failed is probably the wrong way to look at it. Even if you can't help but feel that way though, use it as inspiration so that you don't have to feel that way again :)

Post by: Coryn on October 05, 2014, 10:19:31 AM
Well Hannah, better to try and fail then to not try at all. Some marriages are just not meant to be. It happens I suppose, and it's better that you get out than stay with something that's making your life miserable.

Frankly if divorce didn't exist I wouldn't be here today. Dad had a short and unfruitful marriage before he met my mom. And without that breaking up they would have never gotten together. So it's impossible for me to say that divorce is always a bad thing.

I think you did good. Just work doubly hard to make sure your children aren't too badly affected by it. I'm sure you'll be fine.

well technically, the universe doesn't have memory in a sense like a computer might. i don't know if the universe really has 'memory' at all. so it's not really an apt metaphor i guess. but if it were, then the universe would only have memory enough for a single universe. it'd be more like a million billion universes connected together, rather than one supercomputer handling it all.

Do you want to read a short tragic story?

me and my girlfriend were together almost 6 years I think..
 
after highschool graduation she transferred almost an island to take a medical education or whatsoever and i decided  to be a chef(for my goal is to cook for her,on own home someday)

then after years of hardworking for our relationship and our future..we already saw the ending..dreams and everything..

2 weeks after college graduation we lost our communication..everything..suddenly my friend told me "condolence" your girlfriend as killed right? Don't know why but everything went black..

after that learned everything...didn't attend even her funeral..(not knowing)

after a year.. I received a letter from her parents..contains a piece of paper some usually called as "certificate" that she graduated..

I was so happy that even I can't open my eyes..while holding that piece of paper

Then for almost 2 years I decided to meet her..well yeah too far for most ending that you usually read or see within many manga stories..just an ordinary ending..I shared my story so that I can be free to share my thoughts here in the future with any discussions (must read again the rules though.. he he)

@musick.stay with your kids..ull gain something from them that your partner will be lacking in the future..precious than anything..love and memories...for me these two keeps me running forward..

The circumstances were a bit different, but I was raised by my mother as a single parent. She managed to bring 5 of us up and we all turned out okay.....at least I think so :P  I always feel I owe her, for how hard she worked raising us, cuz I could be a nob in my day. So I'm sure your kids will appreciate you doing what's right for both you and them.

Good for you Lego!

Yeah man, from my experience, you know if someones into you, you just kinda convince yourself they aren't. At least that's what I've found with myself. So it's not such a risk to be up front.

Side note, but honestly, the worst that can happen is you're told no. Which means things pretty much stay the same. And I find you regret rejection a hell of a lot less than you would never trying at all.

But alas, it turned out well it sounds like....I salute you sir!

Ah the troubles of love and romance, where shall I begin?

For a start, I'll tackle the important bit, I'm 21, male and gay(I came out on 3rd October 2013). :3

I have had 2 relationships, neither ended on a happy note, the first one was impossible though he was nice, the second one turned out to be taking me for a ride, that really put a damper on my mood for quite a while.

I think I should focus on getting my Voice Acting and Fight Choreography careers underway before I find my prince.

Sadly I live in Leicester, Leicestershire, East Midlands.

One of THE WORST places to live in England if you want any sort of career, this is the type of city/county where the only think you can do is be a dunce in a dead end job.

I have no attachment to Leicester, if I don't go overseas, I'm definitely leaving Leicester, there is literally nothing but Nightclubs and small museums here.

In order to build myself into the VA world, I'm taking the approach many have to get their foot in the door these days and that is to Voice Act over the internet, groups like TFS have made themselves known by doing this, their individually all getting their foot in the door, a Fan Translation of an action RPG for the PC Engine CD in 2004 put the text in English, but not the voices, in 2012; BurntLassagna managed to complete the project of dubbing the game, all non profit, even Lawrence "MasakoX" Simpson(known for Goku and Gohan in TFS DBZ Abridged) was in that games Fan Dub as one of the chief villains.

On this very website, I have scored my first Role, thanks to KagePen pointing me in the direction of ActionAnimation's thread on here asking for Voices for their Still Motion Animation and Voiced Manga projects, I am Ebn Zeir in Karma, they're currently looking for a voice for Norma(female of course), once the Casting is finally done, I'll finally get to go underway.

Mostly a culture thing. 16 is marrying age here (for the gals), but in my head since I'm not exactly in tune with home culture that feels too young. (Western culture I guess?)

Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: GingerStark on October 24, 2014, 10:05:24 AM
16 is the marrying age here too, though it's a pretty stupid thing to do so young... Since England is shaping itself into a culture more like Japan/China (Demands a lot of work from it's population, poor wages, poor housing) then it's also going to have their problem of people marrying into their 40's which poses problems for an ageing population.

A couple of my friends got engaged at 16 and married at 19. Some people really want each other to commit and promise themselves to one another, which is understandable (if not a little clingy...). I don't have as much of a problem with that as I do 16 year old mothers and fathers (or younger). You should not start up a family that you cannot support - especially as it becomes very restricting in early life, making it harder to find the opportunities that allow you to be able to easily sustain a family.

Also they need to consider that their minds are still developing until they're 25. So they can easily be completely different people within those years of marriage. Which is often why early marriages lead to divorces...

By "other bull" I assume this thread refers to gender identity?
Personally, I'm a homoflexible (aka gay but *censored* happens) predominantly female two-spirit (as in it's like internally I am both masculine and feminine, although I recognize my body as female and many of my actions as feminine..there are other factors that play into my gender.)
Anyway, I've thought about marriage before, but that relationship fell apart b/c she wanted to bring me into polygamy (and looking back I'm like wooooaaaah with some of the bs I let her get away with. :glare: )
Nowadays I'm in a much more healthy relationship with someone who cares about me as much as I care about her (if not moreso) but because of that previous experience I'm still very cautious about thinking about marriage...but, I suppose there's plenty of time to let that develop if it will. I, for one, recognize that since the prospect of me going into college is infinitively higher than hers as well as the fact that the separation in the near future may cause us to grow apart, so I was a little weary about even starting this relationship. *Sigh* what can you do, though? Especially considering that the borders of our early friendship were already so blurred that they were practically nonexistent to begin with.. :-\

Not exactly. Polyromantics is a strange topic, but some people do it for religious reasons or simply because they honestly do love more than one partner. I think my ex went into it because she had family issues and in some twisted way wanted a "new family." That's just my take, though. :noidea:

Polygamy is way over my head.

I think basically under reasonable circumstances it's all up to two people do do as they like. Get married, fine.

It's impossible and sort of pass-off-ish to just say 'this and this leads to divorce.' or 'this will probably not work out'. That takes away the concept of discussions and the actual relations in relationship.

I twisted myself into a pretzel there methinks

A bit, perhaps, but you're right. Communication and trust are invaluable to a relationship, and if you have those two, then the relationship can really go far despite infinitive differences.

I wouldn't worry about marriage so much right now. It's something that comes over time, that you become sure you want to spend the rest of your life with them.

I think I've only ever met 2 girls that I've even thought of this may be the person I could get married too. But even then, it was something that I thought was way off in the future, as for me I'd need to of lived with the girl for a while before popping the question.

I'll tell you the entire story.

So in my class there was a boy who I had been going to school with since we were little, not very close friends.
Then one day he started sitting by me on the bus (I usually sit alone), this went on for about two weeks. During this time he was being very hyper and chatty (which I don't like).
So one day on the way home he says real nervous like, "Can I ask you a question". My reply was, "Is it, will I go out with you". He nods. Then I tell him that I'm not interested, but would like to still be friends (we were only 13), he never approached me again.

About a year later I was curious to why he "asked", so I approached him about it. He said that he didn't remember..... PRO TIP -> If a girl that you had previously asked out asks you why, NEVER say that you don't remember!   You should never incur a woman's wrath, you'll regret it. He did.

Here I'll share a story then.

There was this chick I always bagged for when I worked at this job. Now when I'm working I do have some favouritism towards bagging for the ladies. Aside from some obvious reasons, they were faster to get groceries scanned and bagged so I could do the other duties my co-workers didnt want to do. Co-workers were always busy flirting and not getting anywhere.

Anyways! This one chick I always bagged for stopped me and tried talking to me as soon as I started. Now at the time I was just grateful for the job and ignored anything that would distract from completing my assigned tasks. But she kept at, the problem was I'm scattered brained and dont hear/ notice until after her shift is done that I go "OHHHH....I think she was making a move on me...Whoops."
Continuing, aside from the awkward glances and oblivious flirting attempts it didnt really go anywhere. She was usually texting or something and I had no guts to go on the offensive.

Until eventually she moved to a big city and the end.

Lesson of the story. I wished I just man upped and accepted w/e answer I got.
Instead of always wimping out. :thumbsup:

Nah dude...If it makes you feel better. I still have to put up with her cousin trying to passively start sh!t with me like.
"It must be have been nice bagging for the girl you love thinking your the best and being treated like your the best to not do anything."

Kinda makes me want to say "Yeah I know. It must be pathetic to not even say that to my face. Also speaks in volume about the quality in men when a closet Otaku gets all the women hot and bothered without even trying."
But I better then...Cause I still need to get paid. >_<;

Am I the only one here who would actually mind seeing a human being reborn as a hallucinogenic mushroom? For science.

Nah, but seriously, it's really no harm done by asking a girl out. What's the phrase? "Can't blame a guy for trying."

I tend to notice often when a girl likes me and when she doesn't. Problem is, I don't like the ones that like me most of the time, and the girls that I am attracted to, I end up not liking when I get to know them, and then in that very rare circumstance that I do end up liking the girl as a person (once in my life), I end up realizing I'd be pretty hard to deal with as a significant other.

But such is life (or at least mine). I am quite okay with singleness atm. And that one girl I did end up liking as a person is still around and probably will be around for a few years as will I, so I have time to wait until I'm ready, provided neither of us die (or that she doesn't like me, which happens still).

Trust me guys, when you're single the only problem you have is being lonely once in a while. But when you're in a relationship.....

Relationships are systems that just complicate everything. Sure they can be fun at first, but so is snow sleading, though once you ride that to the bitter end you gotta haul that thing back to the start.

Or they can be like bubblegum.

Not saying there isn't a girl out there whose flavor never fades for you, but lets be honest, all us writers and artists are all probably introverted in some way, so it weakens the chane of finding that girl.

And finally, Lego. Dude respect to you for asking the girl out, that takes a lot more courage than many have. You'll feel hurt, your pride and self esteem will undoubtedly take a hit but you'll get through it dude.

Careful with that dude.

I've heard stories of dudes that went out with chicks with that kind of relationship. Now they were the "Other guy" and when the boyfriend/family found out she made up a story about how he forced himself on her and whatnot. Having them harass him and even having the police bother him too.
All cause she didnt want to take responsibility for her actions. :noyoudon't:

Bluh, speaking of stuff, I'm gonna vent here for a minute. My present girlfriend and I started off as a "more than friends"-y thing, but now we're all official and junk. I just want to say that for me the hardest part of being in a relationship is trying to find someone on your level, b/c Dezzy admittedly is a bit behind in school and stuff so I worry myself sick all the time. Different values and stuff I guess, but it isn't her fault. Ugh, I just want this one to last now that I'm finally with someone who cares back like I care.
I dunno guys; I just hope she and I work out after I get into college and she...whatever she winds up doing. I guess my respecting her decisions and vice versa alongside good communication is really all that's keeping this ship sailing (which I suppose works.)

All I could dig up is a HD port of the PS3 on steam in the next week.
Though if it sells well they could localize.... Or I could save the money and pirate and english patch 3.

...But the Pre-order is only 20$...
But then I have to spend money on steam...I enjoy keeping my wallet and not having it sucked away...

Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: FreezingCicada on November 05, 2014, 10:09:34 PM
Its really good imo. It's not really real time strategy but more turn based.

So each of your units has position on the map. You pick them and you get to move them around freely but they use up action points to move around. You also could only attack once when controlling a unit.
(Be it gun fire, Grenade toss, etc.) Once all the points are spent you cant move unless you want to reselect them again to attack and/or move again for having reduced action points that time.

When you select a unit you use up "medal tokens" that lets you select and act that may times a turn.
There also isnt much FPS aside from point click and hope the enemy doesnt dodge it.
There also is tower defense elements were if you run up to an enemy or vice versa, they pop out to fire at you unless you attack back or end your movement.

Really I consider it more like Fire Emblem like how units could be level and form connections with other people for more abilities on a battle.

Plus story its awesome. Welkin is boss that sketches random plants and wins skirmishes for his countries freedom one tank battle at a time. :P

Post by: MahluaandMilk on November 07, 2014, 11:47:00 AM
I'm sorry; I didn't mean to come off as saying that photo reference decreases the quality. In fact, it's quite the opposite. More often than not, looking at a reference improves the quality of art. However, my statement intended to say that this not only improves, but makes the process of understanding where certain things go easier, thus is a little less difficult than drawing straight from your mind's eye, in which things can be fairly unclear.

Drawing with reference is like using a calculator. Drawing from your mind is like doing a complex math equation in your head and failing horribly until you can figure out a proper method... there is usually only one or two that work.

Exactly. I can appreciate both anyway, but I have more respect for someone who draws without reference. More like awe, but yeah, basically.

>"You look nice/great-" *Say something you liked and notice **Dont mention time or place. Its a trap that suggest she didnt look good till then! ***You could work that angle but apply only after experience
>"Weather is good/bad today" *Question bait **Dont ramble off if she didnt take bait!**

To name a few examples. You may mix and match greetings or find others online.
Bring key cards if you must. I could also give you the harem flow chart as an added deal.

I'm divided on the friendzone theory. True, the Lad culture has made it seem like a tool to vent male anger, but also I've seen friends become literal slaves to women they like in hopes of "Escaping the friendzone" and the woman damn well knows how they're treating them.

Everyone is different I suppose.

On a slightly unrelated note... Listened to this song today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lue7ILwB_1E

For anyone who feels like they have gone through a tough break-up, loss, or a tough break, listen and read the lyrics :)

On a more related note:

Sometimes it's best to just live your life focusing on yourself, without worrying or trying to find or be with someone else. These things tend to happen on their own and you miss out on a lot of opportunities elsewhere if you narrow your focus.

Sometimes you just never know who, how or when until it happens:

You never quite feel the relentless march of time than around your birthday. When your life is translated to numbers and stats.

I reached 24 yesterday, which is 1 away from 25....which is 5 away from 30....That scared me. It makes you question what you've done and where you've been. It's scary, but in another way, it reminds you how precious your time really is on this planet. I can also look back on many fond memories, so I'm cool with it.

Still, I'd like to be settled in a long term career by 30 though  :hmm:

Not sure what the point of this was, just spewing my thoughts onto here for some reason

Yeah, I'm very much an optimist. Almost ridiculously positive, but there are flashes I get, when life hits you. Like then and you go, holy sh!t where is time going? :P

haha, Cicada! Con girls huh? I've never been to a con so I wouldn't know? I could see the advantages of finding a girl who likes anime (and cosplay). That's one thing I would like to do next year, attempt to go to a con.....only thing is, since none of my friends are anime fans, chances are I'd be going solo  :hmm:

Nice Ginger, sounds like an ideal time to settle down!

Marriage is pretty old school. Even for me..
Plus this joke sums it up.

Son: Dad; I heard people in other countries dont know their wife until they're married.
Father: That is true in all countries...

Also, Nah I'm joking about con girls. I have no shot at any of them.
I might try to level up people skills, but I'll have better luck asking girls I think are checking me out.
Just gotta try going YOLO this time. After I re-train...

Girl: I'll activate my Trap Hole (http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Trap_Hole)
- I'd like to chain my Forbidden Lance (http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Forbidden_Lance) in response.

And if the girl is a trap you could always chain your Compulsory Evacuation Device (http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Compulsory_Evacuation_Device). Instead. :P

If any of you ever pick up a girl with any of these, please, let me know how it goes...

I played "truth or dare" with my flatmates in first year during pre-drinks, as most games go it got to a point where people were bored of no one taking "dare" so "truth" ended up being omitted from the game entirely just as it got round to my turn again... I ended up being dared to go up to as many girls as possible in the club later that night (got to 17 I think...) and say to them "Hey fat penguin". Most ignored me but to the ones that responded "what do you mean", I had to say "I mean you're fat and I want to make you waddle...". To my surprise I only got slapped once that night and two girls actually laughed and danced with me...

Anyways safe to say I don't do pick-up lines anymore
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull

I dont think I've even been slapped... I dont think it would even hurt.

But one time in high school I almost got slapped. Cause this one chick was in front of my locker chatting up her friends and what not. Anyways, the bell rang and I got little feed up cause they were STILL talking there.
So I just lunged my arm to the lock (Her head was near the lock) and unlocked the thing and nabbed my stuff before she even thought about what was going on.
Then stopped me once I got my stuff and said to me, she thought I was trying to do some moves or something and was about to slap me.
Then we both awkwardly laughed it off.

Surprised I didnt...I was really greasy in high school...
But yeah, I'll try them out just for you Noisey!

@Noisey: not a cool dare to take, bro. Just because you got a few laughs doesn't make insulting okay to anybody ever, male or female or whoever.
Also, to everyone, just because the two girls Noisey mentioned enjoyed it doesn't mean that it was good at all. You catch what you will with the bait you use, so if you use disrespect as bait, the catch isn't going to be great. Better to be nice and let things happen naturally. And don't complain if a girl only sees you as a friend. Do not whine about your imaginary friend zone. Pack your bags and move on, because whining just makes you look like a douche that only wants a bedroom relationship.

granted that was still in elementary school and the only things that I've cried over since include stress, worry, frustration, heartbreak, loneliness, tears of laughter, and tears of relief after high tensions.

For real though guys, those two or three months after Rose broke up with me were terrible. Then again, I guess that means I really had deep feelings for her and I do still have some happy memories abound..it's just a chapter in my life that has come to its end now and I'm happier with this new one I'm living in now.

Im sorry, I wasnt being serious when I said about insulting girls... it was just a joke... (and if anyone takes it seriously and goes out and insults girls to get them to talk to you then... REALLY!?)

Anyways, I get stupidly agreeable to stupid stuff when I am drunk (a fairly unfortunate trait)... it was a girl who dared me to do it though... she must have not liked me very much!

Its cool, but just know that 99.9% of the time if I say something that sounds mean or rude I won't mean it in any other way than just poking fun or joking around.

Anyway I have removed that bit from the original post to avoid any confusion in the future.

I get what you were saying about 'the friendzone' btw, those kind of posts always bug me because it's just people shifting responsibility from their own missed opportunities. Also any word that includes 'zone' in it in the context of relationships just screams 'lad' to me, which makes me even less empathic. Does make for some fun memes on 9gag though :P

Be all and end all, people tend to be too scared or nervous to go up and express their interest in someone they like. It's fine to be too, because usually the result has around a 1/4 chance of being the one you want. But really if something is going to work then it will and if it doesn't it's not that you are being relegated in any way you just most likely need to work on self-improvement or self-satisfaction to either be more appealing or more patient.

Post by: Vacant on November 20, 2014, 09:19:50 AM
Its a odd term, the Friend Zone.

You know though, every relationship I've had, me and the girl have started out as friends. We've gotten to know each other, then fell for one another, then gone out. I like it that way, I'd never go in for a relationship if I didn't know the person pretty well.

Although I've been on both sides of the supposed "friend Zone".

Once, I was friends with a girl, since she was acting very friendly with me (I learned later on this was because she fancied me, but lil old me was oblivious to this). Over time, I began to really like her, but by then she'd lost interest and moved on to someone else. But, due to us being close friends, I still hung around with her, realising that it wasn't going to happen and we would remain good friends, but deep down hoping it would. This was where I first heard the expression Friend zone. 

On the other side of the coin. There was again, a girl who I worked with. I had a laugh with her and considered us friends. However, when I said I liked her just as a friend during her asking me out, it didn't go well for me. Suddenly, her friends came out and said I had been stringing her along and taken advantage of her. I think they said this cuz she offered me a lift home one time from work, which I accepted (I offered money for petrol anyways). Basically, I'd just been myself, unaware of her emotions then  I was accused of all this and made out to be the villain.

So, anyways, yeah its an odd thing. But I'd always say better to start out as friends to get to know them. Unless you are just pretending to be their friend so you can sleep with them. Then thats wrong, since you're not being honest with them and it's a pretty douchey thing to do.

Theres no room for logic with feelings.
Why should I think when I could "feel"...And they feels like a nice person. ;3

No but seriously...Dont ask me anything about people. I'm just as oblivious as Vacant.
Unless you want to hear some funny stories I've found over the years...Oh wait I have one!

My friend got drunk at a Halloween social party and apparently some random kids tired attacking him (He said killing) when he ran to my place completely out of breath. It was pretty funny, had to walk him home and spent the night there cause it was late. (He has a ps4, good time killer.)
He didnt say how it started, I even forgot to ask how he even out ran them being drunk and all too.

Anyways moral of the story is people are a-holes at time. I remember a co-worker got attacked with a hammer by some dude cause some chick mistaken him for someone else when he was walking to work...

Never confront people on their BS, unless you have some form of backing.
If a chick points fingers at you, Its better to leave as soon as possible, dont use your pathetic reasoning against feelings.

Interesting topic has come up  :hmm: How masculinity is toxic. Not in a sense of "men are the cause of all the worlds problems" but more in a sense of "being a man, society expects these uncomfortable things from me".
Such things can include laughing off pain, not being allowed to do effeminate things and expecting to be a 'bread winner'
What do you guys think on the matter?  :hmm:
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: Lumaria on November 21, 2014, 07:10:33 AM
I think the fact that men have undermined women throughout history....its men who placed that idea onto themselves. And regardless of who brought such idea....turning away from it would be more toxic. Everyone has to be the bread earner...I dont expect men.to laugh off pain....but I dont expect them to burst out crying either.

I believe men should hold you the very image women have fought for. Or else society falls.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: GingerStark on November 21, 2014, 07:19:37 AM
I wouldn't say throughout all of history men undermined women;
-Spartans treated women with great respect, allowing them to take up arms, participate in politics and act as equals in most cases.
-Tribes in Malaysia have a reversed gender inequality where women dominate men. They act aggressive and do the politics/warfare.
-If you believe in the Amazonian tribes, then those women only used men for slave labour or reproduction.

Not that I'm saying that we've had our fair share of gender inequality, anything below the 21st. Century easily show that women were mostly to suffer. But it still can work both ways.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: Lumaria on November 21, 2014, 07:22:10 AM
Point is thats where the idea comes from. And throughout history is still fairly accurate not saying it was there in all areas.

But to have those expectations on anyone physically capable isn't a bad thing...man or women.

I think that they should have those expectations and they should all try to live up to them (obviously not everyone in this world will succeed or move up in the chain as fast as others) at least in when it comes to the emotional and financial expectations.

If they all drop them, we would be seeing even more lazy people than what we see now.

Which image are we talking? Like those romance novel cover images?
Or just taking ownership of responsibility and consequences?

Anyways its not so much a gender issues as its more of a sense of doing what should be right.
The problem is that theres some people out there that dont know how it feels to fail or accept that their wrong at times. Or even their sense of duty and reality is warped. Simply put; they dont know how to deal.

Anyways, I agree that defining traits of masculinity and femininity shouldnt be shamed or discouraged to be more inclusive or to be more gender neutral. As there are biological differences that between the genders that are both physical and mentally.

Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: NO1SY on November 21, 2014, 07:46:20 AM
I think it's swings and roundabouts really... expectations in general society are changing all the time.

My rule is to expect nothing from anyone that you wouldn't expect from yourself, and then not even expect anything from anyone even if you do expect it of yourself. There are over 7billion people on the planet (7000000000) and 95% of them are just trying to live their own lives and do things their way.

As much as I dislike 'lad culture', 'feminism', 'pretentiousness', 'close mindedness' and all the other things along those lines, I can't stop other people from choosing to be like that (or ending up like that). So it's best for me to try and be someone I can be happy with. That might mean fitting into stereotypes or expectations for other people, but the worst thing to do is to blindly do things because "it's just what people do".

However I don't think loren is wrong, setting positive expectations of yourself or on men and women in society is a key factor in achieving a well functioning society with proactive people. I think it's slightly different expectations in terms of what was being talked about before (not cultural expectations as has been said), but in the case of working hard and earning a good wage and being emotionally stable and dependable and reliable, these are all good expectations to have of other people and it can speak volumes if that person has had the opportunity to be those things but isn't.

Nothing worth fighting for is easy.
Anyways I'm not budging from my point of accepted differences.
Not everything has to be equal across the board. But that doesnt meant that everything shouldnt be equal either. A correct amount of balance is whats need, the problem is what should be considered right.
And you could go off going as abstract as possible to appeal to all angles. Thats just my point of view.

I know your point, its just not relevant.

I'm not arguing for equality...i'm arguing that everyone needs to have these expectations if their physically capable of achieving them or else society will fall...these expectations are not about men, and if men feel that way, then they should rework that attitude quickly.

Ginger's main point was that men are expected to tough out pain and to me a bread winner....and i'm saying those ideas originate from male dominated countries throughout time. Now i'm not saying it was there everywhere, just explained the origins.

Now regardless of that, everyone (not even going to touch sex) should have those expectations.

I also agree, although I believe the idea of gender in general is null. Gender is a spectrum like sexuality, therefore masculinity and femininity are only obscure ideas that vary from culture to culture. All people should strive to be productive and bring home their own bread, as it were, that way no one should pull the "you do it for me" card. The concept of what is normal or expected also varies from region to region, although every individual has their own standards, therefore even the concept of normality is null. People should be open to other ideas while simultaneously living the way they wish, so long as it does not infringe upon the lives of others.

Nice harem.
You have done well. :thumbsup:

On the subject of anime cons. Is it mandatory to dress up?
Or should be more creepier then usually and chill there in sweat pants?

Also. I think I should get a heavier dumbbell. Or start doing actual barbell exercises now.

Well...If I follow my logic correctly...If they dress up they want to be looked at, right?
So its cool to ask questions for at least a picture.
Now redirect me if I'm way of base here but...

Its cool to bring a camera right? While wearing sweat pants and mouth breathing?

Unless the con you're going to has made a policy against cameras, they're usually allowed. ^^ If you'd like to take pictures of cosplayers, I would ask first. Some cons, like the ones in Calgary, has made rules to ask first or have your camera confiscated until the con is over. :hmm:

But not for any of his usually shenanigans of poor behaviour or sloppy work or missing in action to rub one out...
Nope none of that.

He got fired cause he called some gay dude and f*ggot...
Basically the dude was struggling lifting up some garbage to the compactor when my friend helped him by lifting the thing up with one hand. Co-worker saw that, said, "Do you even lift, f*ggot?"

And that was it.

On an unrelated note, what are your thoughts on so called "love" at first sight?

I ask because I kept seeing this one girl around town today, in shops, on the way to work, in the coffee shop etc. I'd never seen her before and I don't think she was the most beautiful girl I've ever seen or anything. But there was just something about her. I couldn't help but instantly notice her and I felt drawn to her and was quite taken aback by the intensity of it. I'm not one to lose my cool much, but dayummmm she took my breath away to the point I couldn't even begin to think of approaching her. But I can't put my finger on why that was exactly? Anyone else ever experienced this?

I dont think I've ever been breathless. But when I was into this one chick sometimes my heart would feel like it skipped a beat when she talked to me. To bad I didnt man up to go on the offense...

Anyways...Uh...Think of ways to break the ice, mang.
I suggest an eye to eye greeting to see how she reacts and form a "battle strategy".

Or uhh...Continue stalking. Either choice seems good. imo.

Love at first sight is infatuation and pheromones, but it can turn into true love after said infatuation wears off. Just my observations. Lovelives are never that easy, though, and anything worth having is something you have to work for.

Love at first sight is an illusion. It is just basic human lust, since you looked at her and she took your breath away; I assume it was her appearance and nothing about who she was as a person. It was also probably just because you didn't... no never mind.

Luck was on my side. I got to the room early, and she was the only person there! Typical for Japanese I guess. So I pretended I didn't see her, looked around the room, then pretend I just saw her and introduced myself. I said a friend of hers mentioned her to me (Partially true) and that got a nice convo going for the whole lecture. She even followed me back to my dorm before forgetting that she had to go to her!  :clapping:

Yup. I do. I also need guides to tell funny jokes and how to fun or do basically anything.

But seriously though, I thought it would give a list of cheesy one lines to have whenever. As I know what the intended purpose is for them! Its to try to break ice by getting her the smile and be overall friendly. And if it backfires you gotta bounce before it completely blows up.
Also reading through it, it's pretty decent advice, no lie.

Quote
Leading is when you, as the man, make a decision about where an interaction will be heading. She expects you to push the interaction forward. That is your job. You always risk some level of rejection when you try to change the flow. That demonstrates a willingness to walk away which is inherently attractive and non-needy. That is flirting 101.


I've always assumed "hero" was a unisex term. Untill I've heard of heroine.
Now anytime I have to refer to a female hero it sees like its MANDATORY to say heroine. /rant

I think both sides of a relationship should be equal and a man does not have to take the lead charge of everything because that's kind of sexist.
Guide books for dating are nice, but seriously, you should probably just be yourself because dating is trying to find a partner for life, or at least for the night in the hotel, (but that's none of my business and) even so your partner should be able to agree with who you are at least. No ned to be fake.

I would, But me being myself is either very monotone or getting hyped about something and throwing around FGC slang. OR Me being myself is just me keeping my mouth shut and get sh!t done...>_>
At least having some sort of flow chart to fall back on would be great, imo.

No a man doesnt have to lead all the time. But people respond more friendly towards those with good leadership or even a traditional dating values. IE: Say I went on a first date. And after we're done I suggest we should split the bill. It might look like I'm cheap or something.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: MahluaandMilk on December 09, 2014, 09:56:20 AM
:-\ Old traditions are stupid IMO, but I can't judge people for following them all of the time. It just kind of infuriates me that no one realizes that this is /still/ a very sexist way to view things. Like, give me one logical reason why a man should pay the first date? What if two men are having their first date? Who pays following that train of thought? Why?

Two partners in a relationship should be equal, so in my not-so-professional opinion, they should always split the bill if they can unless one of them has taken charge of the financial side of the relationship with the other's consent. It does not matter which partner that may be, and in my parent's case, it's actually my mother.

Maybe the fact that my mother separated when I was three and has a been independent until she got injured on the job is the reason I'm so strongly minded about this.. :noidea:

Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: Vacant on December 09, 2014, 03:30:30 PM
I usually pay on a first date, unless the girl is adamant she wants to pay half. I think its a nice gesture, treating them like they're special and all that jazz.

With that said, I do see how some people wouldn't like it, in fact some could even feel insulted by it so I don't think  "the man always pays" should be the social norm. 
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: FreezingCicada on December 09, 2014, 06:17:06 PM
Depends. I wouldnt mind dropping 30-40$ on a meal or something.
But as for small stuff like coffee shops. I wouldnt even care. Just ask them what they want and I'll order.
Or go as a pair kinda thing and pay for it. As doing it separate might seem kinda weird when the purpose of the date is to get closer. Unless I'm missing something.

Now as for more expense stuff then yes. I'll say on first dates, pay for what you consumed.

But I agree with Vacant.
Following the age old, treat everyone like an asshole. Except someone I'm trying to bang; then their princess'.

And if they get mad for falling back on old shenanigans like paying, holding doors open,etc.
Then I'll bounce, simple as that. :sure:

Wait. Hold on. When you talk about this whole bill-paying stuff...

...You only pay the bill as an act of generosity towards somebody you don't know when you are dating. Since the person who accepted the date is so graciously giving their time to you. Who ever asks; has to pay. It is a gesture of rudeness if they don't, and the other individual will feel discouraged to form a relationship with you. You shouldn't even have to ask who is paying the bill when you're done with your fancy dinner.

If the two of you are friends that have known each other for quite a while - then split the damn bill or take turns paying for it.

Sidenote: I don't know where the idea that the 'man' has to pay came from - but it's usually them who asks a girl on a date.

Its a pretty bold claim to say it keeps people at bay. I'd say its little better then atheism.
Or should I say the dumb ones that act superior cause they KNOW there is no gods or deities.
(There no absolute fact to disprove god as there is no absolute to prove it either.)

Theists, some people call them as fence sitters or half believers. w/e.

Anyways. There is nothing wrong with religion, as long as its in moderation.
Me personally I follow a believe there is a god. But I'm not gonna go to churches to pray and whatnot.
If there really is a personal connection to be formed towards god then why should it be necessary to go to a building to offer multiple prayers and thanks?
If god is an omnipotent being then saying it once should be enough. Let your actions determine your "faith" and not your words or money. /Rant

Mang...The fighting game community is some of the most tolerant people I've ever known.
They have the best slang out there. If your getting trash talked you ignore it or expose them as frauds.
And if you didnt, you come back and get gud.
Not hide in a corner and be to insecure to stand up for yourself. If you cant function in a competitive environment just give up. There is way worse things then being trashed at fighting game.

How tolerant are they? Enough to change terms like some keeping mauled in a 5-0 set from getting raped to bodied.
Tolerant enough to have people like brolylegs play good at a competitive level and if you lost to him you hold that sh!t as you would with any other player.
And if they are salty enough to fight you money match them and clean them up. Or get recked.

Really there is nothing wrong with the fgc. /rant

Conclusion
Two studies demonstrated that lay
people misperceive the relationship between hostile sexism
(HS) and benevolent sexism (BS) in men, but not in women. While men's endorsement of BS is viewed as
a sign of a univalently positive attitude towards women, their rejection of BS is perceived as a
sign of univalent sexist antipathy. Low BS men were judged as more hostile towards women than high BS men
,
suggesting that perceivers inferred that low BS men were indeed misogynists.
Negative evaluations were reduced when men's rejection of BS was attributed to egalitarian values,
supporting the hypothesis that ambiguity about the motivations for low BS in men was partially responsible for the attribution of hostile sexist attitudes to low BS men.
TL;DR:
Basically. Dudes that treat women like any other dudes are more sexist then men treating women like women.
Which means. You cant win either way. :clapping:

I cry after every ending of a long running manga that I read. Even happy endings... they're all so... dark... and sorrowful... like the characters suddenly die and the world abruptly ends... there are no meaningful future appearances of the characters... there's nothing... just a hole in my soul that is never refilled. I tried to use fanfictions as a method of having the characters live on - but it is hopeless... I cannot satisfy myself... there is no salvation... only endings and death.

So here's a brain teaser. It's a question with no solid answer of course, since people are all different, but I'm looking for anyone who might have had a similar experience.


So I meet a girl, and I learn that this girl has a fiance, and of course I "X" off the list of potential relations. Then I find out that she breaks it off with her fiance for various reasons. I, still, leave her on the list of "friends only". Then I am asked by a mutual friend what I think of her. I pause, knowing where he's going with it. I say "She's a nice girl and I like and all y'know? But I don't think of her like that." He understands.


And then I start thinking about what I think about her. And I'm starting to realize that we have a lot in common, and she's my type, and she's good looking to boot. But then again there is that "just broken up with a fiance" thing. And I'm not so love struck as to try blundering into things with that lying on the table, but if she's moved past it then I'm more than willing to try my hand.

So I guess my question is, considering this whole thing was just broken off in the fall, am I way too early?
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: Vacant on February 18, 2015, 07:19:57 PM
Guess its dependent on the girl herself, the length of time she was with her now ex-fiance and why they split I guess.

I'd imagine she'd still be feeling a little fragile, but as adults we humans have a remarkable elasticity when it comes to bouncing back from relationships. So as long as she's ready to move on, you're set there fella

My heart hurts for a long time after the end of each Manga I read...

...I cry after every ending of a long running manga that I read.

Man I'm such a sap... I cry at absolutely everything... like I was in the same room as my brother when he was watching The Bucket List, and I was playing games on my laptop and not even watching with him yet I still ended up balling my eyes out...

I haven't cried after finishing every manga, but I do know that feeling of being left with an empty space. And I will cry if anything is remotely sad or relieving in a series... Damn I sound like a wuss!


So I guess my question is, considering this whole thing was just broken off in the fall, am I way too early?

Guess it depends what you are looking for really? And how long it's been since she broke up with her Ex?

Breaking it off with someone you are engaged to usually means one of two things... 1) The guy did something stupid or turned out to be a tool. 2) She has problems fully committing.

So if you don't feel awkward about it and you don't have trust issues, then it may be worth a shot, especially if you've already been nudged by a mutual friend. But I'd just make sure you are aware what you are getting into.

Manga/Anime sickness get me badly whenever I finish them

@ Coryn dangerous baggage, but I'd say test the waters and go for it. That's something that'd obviously come up in a conversation so you could hash it out then.

e.g "I'm not ready to be that serious but we could date" or "You know I sort of broke up with someone "

Yikes, those are super awkward things to pop up in a convo, but whatever, I'm sure if you talk it out you can set the ground rules.  Take your time. Patience young padawan

well that's my problem I suppose. I know the details of the break up. But it was more just something that came up in conversation and not an outpouring of emotion or anything. So it didn't read like she was trusting me overly with the information. But the short version is that it was the guy's fault.

She was with the guy for 4 years or so. according to my facebook stalking (shush). engaged in 13. broke up in 14.

I guess the real problem here is that I don't know her well enough to be able to judge her bounce-back abilities. I'm sitting right in that zone of "we're not close friends yet, which means she probably hasn't made up her mind about me either"


argh. i think i'll probably just ask her out for a drink when a good moment comes around.

You misunderstand, I'm not worried about the friendzone because even if it ends up that way I won't be crushed to death. I've had plenty of great friends that I once tried to date. I don't see it as loosing, it's more like second place prize.

people treat the idea like it's the end of the world, but really you just have to learn to accept the feelings and emotions of another as being as equally valid as yours. If someone else never asks for your love, you have to realize you have no right to try and force it on them.

She burnt pictures of her friends  :( She once drew a satan circle in the playground. I thought these people only existed in movies (Or Deep South America).

Friendzone doesn't really come to my mind much but it does have relevance to a psychological theory proposed by Freud. Girls with abusive dads (Or without dads in general) tend to end up with abusive boyfriends, and since parents are generally becoming a lot worse nowadays, it could add some credibility to nice guys being ignored.

You misunderstand, I'm not worried about the friendzone because even if it ends up that way I won't be crushed to death. I've had plenty of great friends that I once tried to date. I don't see it as loosing, it's more like second place prize.

people treat the idea like it's the end of the world, but really you just have to learn to accept the feelings and emotions of another as being as equally valid as yours. If someone else never asks for your love, you have to realize you have no right to try and force it on them.
Where is your ambition, man?!
Its cool and all to have all bases covered and accept the worst cast possible out look.
But other times you just have to man up! MAN!!!

Ignore the fact I havent maned up to any woman yet...>_>

So this is about smiling at a female (creepily lol) so they will notice you? Wow...no offense but just strike up a conversation with them. Literally walk up to them and say "Hi i am *insert name*" or if you are an odd ball you can do something not normal such as having bubbles and blowing them at them and making sure they hit them. (pretty sure the bubbles will make more of an impression than the smile)

No I shall smile awkwardly towards anyone! I kinda do...it...all the time...
Its really more about when you start building muscle people kinda notice you more often.

Which I'm not even that strong at all. Its just my shoulders make me look bulkier then I actually am.
(150 lbs)

Plus I already know all the secret mind games. Like, Do or say something dumb thats easier to correct.

Being on urban dictionary is not a 'get out of racist free card'. "Yellow" is still a slur towards asians. Just like "red skin" is a slur towards native americans.

if you're alerted to poor behavior, don't try to excuse it. learn to correct it.

Urban dictionary is were its at.

Also what study? I'm sure there were a couple. I know there was an old one finding out the average size and what size that isnt to small or big.

I think it was 5.5-6 inches for the average and preference, iirc.
Why do I know that?


...I read some odd things every now and then during my lurking.

@Coryn I get where you getting at but. Its a phrase.
IIRC there was a bit Colbert report that did a joke on a charity that based its name on red skins. It was about donating to Native Americans (w/e they're called now.)
Then spin it as reference for a racist Asian joke. You know what happened?
No one gave a sh!t about the first charity but oh no...Cant be having dem jokes to point out racism and missing the entire point cause your feelings got hurt or wanting to profit off other peoples rage.

In other words. Dont stand on moral high ground, man. Its not good for you.

god damn it, the end point of that thing with colbert is not that we shouldn't stand up for stuff, but that people were idiots who missed the damn point. It's still not okay to just spout racist bull because "it's just a phrase", that was colbert's entire thing! The redskin's guy was all "it's just a name", so colbert gave his fake charity an even worse name.

just don't use the phrase. simple as that.

She usually comes in when the store opens to grab some coffee or food on lunch (I assume)
And I assume she gets flustered whenever I walk by her cause she usually looks away or smiles OR other subtle things they do.

Yo, Mr. Mod and Freezing, it's all good in the hood! I get what both of y'all are saying.

Freezing, it's true that the term is just a funny little phrase but it can get taken the wrong way on here by people who don't know any better. Like you said, on the Colbert Report, most people focused on the "racist" name of the charity rather than it's work, which shows how sensitive people and society still are about this stuff. As a mod, Coryn knows this and is putting his foot down to ensure people don't get hurt or offended on here if this term being tossed around.

Coryn, I can't deny that referring to asians as "yellow" is racist to some degree, but I think what it comes down to is the intention with which you say it. Freezing didn't mean to offend anyone by using it. I do see where you're coming from though. It's hard to convey intention through written word. So people from Japan, China, other Asian countries seeing that term tossed around on this thread might get very offended and leave the site, which would be a problem. I guess the term is best used with close buddies and such who you're comfortable with and know that you're joking.

Anyways, I'll be more careful next time. 
----------------------------------------------------------------

Go for it, Freezing. You only live once (which is not entirely true if you believe in reincarnation, but you get what I mean right?). I went an entire semester not talking to this girl I thought was super pretty and regretted it after (but still got over it pretty quickly). Point is go talk to her!

@Usopp: I'll try when I think I could snag a chance to say "whats up" then or "Can I help you with something moves. I kinda missed a chance when she was wandering into the frozen section when the store was opening.

But that shouldn't stop people from hitting on people. It just means that we should all be better humored and should learn how to take a compliment while kindly turning people down.

And I doubt she has a boyfriend. Shes been doing this for at least a year.

/perv mode
I just didnt pay much attention cause she was super skinny/boney before. But now...
She developed more of her body and gained a healthy amount of weight/muscle.

And from what I gathered. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

yeah actually. most of us are circumcised actually. and yeah, majority of it is about health rather than religion. most of those concern the very early years, but that's still a pretty good benefit. and I know people spout that "it lowers sensitivity", but really there's no real solid proof one way or the other.

We spent a whole three months of studying on transgender. Personally I don't understand (nor really want to) why they'd change gender, but respect their decision to do that.... as long as they don't go shoving it down my throat like it's their only defining trait as a character.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: Coryn on March 05, 2015, 06:37:28 PM
well it'll be perfectly fine and safe as long as you're going with the literally age old "sharp object" method. you have to really *censored* it up at that point.


with the whole transgender thing: It's really not about 'changing' ones gender. Gender is something defined in the mind, not by the body. Gender is still something you're born with though, and most transgender people understand that something isn't right very early on. It's just that it seems to take a longer time to make the full realization of what's going on.

Personally, I don't care what anyone identifies as gender-wise, that's not what I judge people by.

I judge people by whether or not they're an asshole.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: Vacant on March 05, 2015, 06:49:21 PM
Yeah was going to say, it's more a mental thing. Most transgender people feel like they're born into the wrong body. As a kid it must be truly confusing and a difficult subject to bring up I imagine.

Haha, I see what you're saying Vacant although "asshole" might be a bit too extreme; I think "douchebag" is a more suitable label. If you're wondering what is the difference let me tell you what my friend told me. A douchebag is basically a tool - tries to be a womanizer and act cool, tries to talk like a "bro" and wear "fratty" clothes. An asshole is similar but is basically unsuccessful in all the other aforementioned areas - can't attract any women but still tries to act like he's the *censored*. Basically, the type of person no one likes. 
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: Vacant on March 05, 2015, 07:41:36 PM
I jest about the hat thing. While it does certainly conjure the douche image, as long as they're a decent enough human being its fine. Chav's tend to be the worst culprits for being knobheads. Why just yesterday, I went to catch the bus to work and 2 of them kicked off on one lad.

Whats the most shocking thing about it is that in a busy bus station in a town center, no one made a move except me. I was the only person who didn't just either try to ignore it or watch on. I've always lived by if someone needs help then you better go help them. It makes me worried for society if thats not the norm anymore.

A lot do come naturally; foot fetishism is one of the most common fetishes (Especially among men) and from a psychodynamic perspective, it's because it resembles genitals  :hmm: Though personally feet are disgusting things, who knows what you can find under that toenail  :noidea:

Asexuals? Definitely wouldn't be any at the catholic school I went to. Though I think someone in the student union is a hermaphrodite?

I find it annoying when people say "I wish I was an animal, humans are so evil" despite the fact that dolphins rape their children, ants have wars with one another, and that they're in a food chain with death being highly likely.

I identify as an asexual because the idea of dating or sleeping with anyone annoys me/makes me uncomfortable. I'm selfish and I don't want to be forced to go out or interact for long periods of time. I can barely handle my friendships and we only hang out every other weekend. If I had to spend everyday with someone I'd lose my mind.

My ideal partnership is marrying another asexual and living in a big house with separate rooms~ <3

I've had a similar thought about drinking before. Then I didn't drink for a long time (you can imagine the night I had before the morning I asked myself that question)

but then I realized that drinking was fun. It was a wonderful social lubricant. It helps me let go and just have a good time, which doesn't come naturally.

and lastly: I just really really like the taste of beer.

Words of wisdom right here.

You dont have to be an alcoholic to drink beer. Just chill with some friends and rink and maybe do something stupid or just be talking.
I prefer to get buzzed on rum. Then shots of vodka. Beer is just to relax.

Also of course I place value on sex when it comes to marriage.
I've heard the divorce nightmares before.

I think it's possible to have a successful marriage without sex provided that both partners are on the same wavelength.

I also heard that a married couple that are our family friends abstained for something like 5 years... but then they gave up... didn't change them much though...

Sex is good for couples that enjoy close contact and intimacy and it can really make you feel closer to a higher degree if you think like that. But a healthy relationship will be based on more than just sex.

on the other note  :cheers:

I use to drink (I said a week but I was exaggerating because I don't feel like being terrible accurate).

I drank because I felt I needed to to be more social. I naturally don't feel the need to interact with others.
I have tried many different types beer (discusting), Vodka (can live with but still not great), Tequila (Oh god why), Wines (PASS), and specialty drinks (which were all meh).

I realized I was using alcohol as a crutch to be more sociable but it just tastes so horrible I'd rather not be sociable (even though both my friends drink occasionally) and just hang out normally.

Um, that's why I said I'd marry another asexual. We'd just have a decent house and take turns buying groceries, do our own laundry, and live in separate rooms so we can let our rooms be as messy as we please. I hate sharing my bed with people.

Also those men are gross and dirty looking. Don't marry someone for sex, marry for love. And even then have friends that you hang out with as friends, because there is such a thing as being around the same person too much.

Everyone's different. I agree with Noisey. It depends on if all the people in the relationship are on the same page. If it works out it does and if it doesn't it doesn't.

Its that alimony/ child support in family courts is a b!tch.

It's a 22 minute podcast. So no. I don't even listen to podcasts from letsplayers I like. I got through five minutes then realized exactly how long it was.

Money is pretty important. Everyone tries to convince you that it's not but it is especially if you've tried to live without it. Sadly. "Money won't solve all your problems" is true, but it would solve most of them.

Don't get me wrong I'm not looking for marriage or a partner. I've noticed that all my fantasies are me living alone in a decently sized house with friends/assistants that either live in or come by frequently.A workroom with 2 to 3 bedrooms 2 baths and a decently sized kitchen and living room.
Maybe not even assistants but other comic artists that work together on our own stories and share ideas <3 <3 <3 or tell what are plans for our next story arcs are~

I used to drink.. a lot when I came home from work. STOP before you think I'm an alcoholic, I used to work FIFO (fly in fly out) out in the middle of nowhere 168 hrs in a fortnight (that's 12hrs a day 7 days a week for two weeks) and fly home for a week off and do it again. It was good money ($3800 AUD after tax) but the sacrifices omg. So to get settled in on the first night home I'd drink a whole carton (30 cans roughly) to myself and pass out XD. But I got bored of it, and now only drink once in a while but I still love my rum and cola.

I'm a grey, I still want a normal family with my own children one day. If that means I gotta be in a relationship with a sexual and get dirty that's just how it's going to have to be.


The point was the story not the appearances. Did you even bother to listen to it though?

My mother and father went through 11 years of custody battles in court, they weren't married and my father still had to pay child support. TBH my mother isn't someone I'd trust, she really is the worst person. Just did it for the money and not for my little sister and I. She tries to make up for it now but 15 years is a tad too late. Probably the cause of my anxiety and my mild gynophobia.

Can't speak for all men (I'm a bit of an oddball me...) but I care about my body image in a personal way. I don't care so much what other people think so long as I am happy and feel comfortable in myself, so I go to the gym and eat somewhat healthily and balanced because it helps me feel good about myself. Definitely couldn't care less about what the general public opinion on the perfect guy is though... Who has the time!?

But me...I just like to feel my muscles worked and sore. And if ladies happen to notice and get hot and bothered then let them. Just dont bother me on the clock.


I dont know much about this personality thing. If they turn into an assh*le cause of a weight lost then they didnt do it for the right reasons. Working out is a way to temper and disciple yourself in a humble and safe way, not trying to win popularity contests. imo.

If you have Netflix check out a documentary called something like the Adonis Factor, it goes into the importance of appearance in the gay community.
There is also another documentary on steroid use that revolves around straight men.

I used to be a gym rat/body builder. It was nice when my chest was 20+ inches bigger than my waist. These days I have a comfy couch and a big TV so I "plan" to get back in shape but that hasn't been happening for years (I now have kettle bells behind the couch and have for months). Mmm time for ice cream!

I was a body builder, not someone who went to the gym of a sports advantage. I did it because women liked how I looked. Generally I loved the attention I got from them (when your chest is 20+" bigger than your waste they treat you different).
The only time I think it went hilariously wrong was when I was 17 and had just got out of the gym and went to Toys R Us to do some xmas shopping. Well I go to the bathroom and when I come out there is a woman standing outside the bathroom. She is the store manager. She says I was shoplifting (I'm wearing a string tank so there is no way I could be hiding anything) She says she has to search me or call the police (the police and me are not friends, I'm not in the mood to have cops torture me to get their jollies.) so she starts "searching" my bare pecs, after several minutes of this she starts "searching" my bare lats, my abs, and so on, after ~10 min someone else comes into the hallway and she stops her "search" says "you can go" and hurriedly walks off.
I also suffer from bulkorexia (I can never see myself as more than tiny).

How much do guys care about appearance? It varies from guy to guy. Some have their gels and hair sprays and expensive clothes, others do not even bathe regularly. Just like women.
I assume this is general appearance and not your appearance which when unadulterated is just you, your birthday suit, and what the gym gave you.

I'm impressed with the gains.

I'm just a wimp with 30 lbs dumbbells. I havent tried going to a gym or doing barbell exercises.
I also have access to a chin up bar. Its fun to do exercises with it. Though I should increase the weight since its starting to feel light with the exception to shoulder presses.


Also I always thought the gay community were jerks about appearances. Usually hear stories about them talking sh!t about someone. Then again thats usually the obnoxious flamboyant types, imo.

Also....Was the chick hot? If she was under a 3, I bet you could have had a lawsuit if you wanted.  :sure:

Post by: Aozora on March 26, 2015, 06:05:50 PM
A lot of people will disagree with me on this but I think every man cares about their body image at some basic inherent level, not just because society tends to place a lot of importance on appearance but also because its simply human nature. I mean unless you're like the freaking Dalai Lama and completely detached and enlightened and whatnot, you more than likely care about your appearance to some extent. That's why when I hear friends say that the sole reason they're working out or going to the gym is because they want to get more "functional strength" or they want "to be healthy", I often call BS. And I even call BS at myself, when I try to tell myself that I'm working out for these reasons because subconsciously I know a lot of what drives me to go the gym comes from the desire to look good and get attention. The only caveat I would say to this is that there are varying levels: some people are obsessed with how they look and how others see them while others are on the low end of the spectrum.

It was nice when my chest was 20+ inches bigger than my waist.

Teach me, Sensei.
1. Actually go to the gym/work out.
2. Do not underestimate teh ability of incline flys/bench to thicken your pecs.
3. Most chest size comes from your back. Love your lat workouts.
4. Measure pumped that way you are bigger  :tongue:
5. only do light ab work if any. (until you want to show off, until then just work on cutting fat). Ab workouts build your abs which reduces your taper.

Also keep in mind that your average woman feels that a 10" taper is ideal for a man. at 20 you are going in the freak show direction. I couldn't afford to go on the needle ('roids) or I would have gone for 30.

I wish I could afford the gym  ::) I'm going to have to get a job next term so I can afford accommodation
Buy a deck of cards. done.
flip a card and do that many pushups, Do this until you can't.. Then move to pull ups, Do this until you can't.. and finally Hindu squats, Do this until you can't..  repeat daily. You should begin to see some results in ~ 1 month.
Starting out there is no need for a gym.

Too right, swearzy. Here is another thing that's sounds trolly.

Even though this thread has hundreds of pages, in all honesty, we're just nerds who read comics and cartoons everyday. Whatever Simon says goes. Whether they legalize slavery or ban phones, we're gonna follow it like cattles. In the mean time, we sink into entertainment, where we watch our Magi counterparts do something about.  This comment goes to show how useless this topic, so go back to watching pokemon.

Now, lets wait for Gelmra.

Recently there's been a movement on university campus about tampons and sanitary pads, the pricing of them I think. Apparently they're taxed as luxury items rather than as neccesities, thus making them more expensive. I actually think it's pretty fair they lower the price, I definitely wouldn't want shaving cream to go up in price  :(

Luckily it's not India though, periods are really taboo subject there  :hmm: It's always a struggle trying to balance an open society and a prude one

I'd rather say that girls often gain weight when they are in a happy as sweet love relationship...at least that's what I know that is typical in my country...you can see very often newly married woman getting a lot of extra weight just a few months after the wedding for example (LOL)

hahaha, don't really know about the general world but it's hilarious yes...in my country though if a married woman is too thin it make the neighbour, family and other people think "oh that man is not taking a good care of his wife"

So men rather prefer their wife rounder so that they don't get prejudiced (LOL) ... but I guess that is also very old school because youngsters nowadays are more into fashion and stuff.

But it's not so typical to find men gaining weight for such a reason

It's Ok, don't worry, I'm from madagascar ...In a typical family it's more old style of housewifes and working husbands...like husband go to work in the morning and comes back in the evening, and then the wife take care of housework and kids...I think it's because they spend lots of time in the kitchen cooking good meals for their husband and kids that they often gain weights.

Post by: Boosted Nomena :) on April 09, 2015, 08:48:16 PM
That's cool if the woman is not having any career objectives in mind so that she can be content from being fully supported by her husband but case figures also happens when for example the husband is not able to bring enough money home....she might have been willing to give up everything to become a housewife at the beginning but then when difficulty becomes a bit heavy she would start regretting it (LOL)

Must be nice to have a normal family. I learn how to cook because I like to cook. I feel that the wife should do what she wants, if she wants to be a stay at home mother then I'd support that. Or she wants to continue to university and get a good career I would also be in support.

I can't count the number of time I heard men feels inferior when they are in front of an accomplished career woman.

And I had few of my girl friends telling me that their boyfriend broke up with them because they felt being inferior in career, seeming apparently that the girl was too challenging for them...or sometimes they would even ask the girl to slow down because they can't keep up as if it was a question of competition (LOL)

I don't believe in tradition. I also don't want to hurt my grandparent's feelings because they've always been there for me. I also don't want to have them pay for the marriage stuff like they did for their kids.

So I'm not going to bother with a girlfriend until I can support myself... it will be 'easier' now that I have a job. Though I don't trust a girlfriend, I will only be betrayed by a sex-addict... knowing my luck.

-sigh, sigh, sigh-

I don't know what to do... I have no girlfriend who shares my interests in anime and manga and who would want to work with me (a writer) OR EVEN has an ideal personality... and nobody understands me... so I just pose as a middle-aged man with 5.9 foot long hair that is neon purple... with a mustache that is the same color since that is how I would view myself in this society... outrageous.

I'm NINETEEN YEARS old man... and I feel so old already. -rubs eyes, sniffles-

Sentimental... well, enough of feeling sorry for myself.

Or best of all, hoards of monsters coming at me and I barely stay alive with my trusty katana. Good dreams  :santa:

I own 2 suits from Marks & Spencer, have lasted me 6 years now (only worn properly for about 3 of those though...).  Just wore one of them to my Grad Ball with a new luxury cotton double-cuffed textured white shirt from M&S also. Keep it well looked after and use the right extra pieces of clothing and you can pull off a very suave look for not that much money.

However I dunno if they have M&S in Germany... soooooo... a market?

The suits were £99 each for Jacket and Trousers together, so £198 for both back in 2009... (I haven't grown for a while...) They still fit me apart from on the arms, hence why I wanted a double cuffed shirt to compensate.

Spent £45 on the shirt (£20 contributed by my housemate for my Bday), but you can get nice shirts for £20... £25 on the cuff links.

Then you just need bits and bobs... nice shoes, a nice watch, a good tie and a good belt.

And yet it actually had all that death and fancy jazz.

Interesting movie. Worthy of the praise of a pessimist.

I crushed on the same girl for nearly 4 years and I still have reoccurring dreams of her. But the thing that burns me is I always lose in my dreams. I would say if you've been tunnel visioning for so long perhaps it's time to look at the sky for a bit. You'll just end up like a certain someone.

Well, just to reiterate what I said before, we're all literally reading this on a website where we meet and talk to total strangers that we would never have a chance to become friends with were it not for the magic of the internet. Using it to help find people in your local area to then go meet in the physical world, is not that crazy. There's also no excuse anymore for not knowing who someone that you met online is before meeting them in person. We have facebook, twitter, skype, youtube, etc. I can go online and find out who your friends and family are, talk to you over webcam face to face, even compare an exhaustive list of favorite fan fiction if we so chose. So yeah, it's a fine invention. The modern world is time consuming, and we don't all live in tiny towns anymore where you just automatically marry the only girl your age. We're spoiled for choice, and online dating can help you cut through all that.

It's important to remember that it's not there for having a boy/girlfriend that you only 'date' online. It's for meeting locals. No different than trusting your friends to happen to know someone they think you might like.

Your area is also a big factor when using an online dating app. The smaller the area, the less likely you'll find a good match.

From my experience, I ran into a lot of women who couldn't hold a decent conversation. I've gotten a lot of the "ok" and "lol" and after a while I got bored with it all. And it could be just where I'm from, but a lot of women seem pretty stuck up sometimes. Just read some bios from a couple different profiles, you'll see what I mean.

And there's scams too, of course, and escorts, which makes finding a decent person to talk to and eventually meet a bit more difficult than it needs to be.  Then again, I live in the south side of Chicago where it's not too hard to find those thing in IRL, so I digress.

So yeah, online dating is great lol!

Well, I'm pretty sure the more mainstream dating websites also all have apps as well these days. I don't know if i'd trust an app only service. Unless you're just looking for a hookup. Unfortunately, if you're going for a more 'serious' dating site, you'll probably need to drop a little cash.

Both. Tinder, plenty of fish, even was on zoosk for a short while, although I wasn't using zoosk too much since you pretty much have to pay just to message somebody. Sorry, but I refuse to pay a monthly subscription to talk to a girl. I can do that outside for free.

Plenty of options to choose from, Lego. most dating sites have a subscription based system, so you're gonna have to do some searching to find the free stuff, unless you don't mind paying to use a subscription based service.

And like Coryn said, don't put too much stock into it. Have some fun with it and use it as an tool for gathering experience and building confidence with talking to different types of women.

There's this chick at my job that I see on occasion when I take my lunches in the break room. Cool chick, ya know? Nice, decent looking, a great person to chat up with. We had some pretty cool conversations about life and other miscellaneous subjects.

Funny thing is, out of the two months or so of us just casually talking to each other (Keep in mind that we don't see each other often throughout this time), not once have we asked each other our names. We sort of just vibe and talk every now and then.

And you know what, I sort of appreciate that in a weird but cool way. I sort of find beauty in being able to just talk to a chick on a friendly level without the feeling of wanting to know everything about them on the spot. There's no form of sexual attraction or anything like that between us. Just two people who naturally connect with one another and have good convos. That's not to say I wouldn't be interested in something more because I would be. But for now i just wanna enjoy our current interactions.

Holy crap I was going to make a post in this topic tonight after a party but Frobro beat me to it, and it's such a deep situation that I'll let things be.

As the science dude says, low key find out a name eventually.

I, the hopeless romantic, say let things be and maintain that epic cool. I should warn you it is a direct train to the friendzone, but there is seriously nothing better than no-strings communication between two humans in short moments.

Question though: Are you scared of asking the name or are you okay with not knowing? If scared then I see alarm bells, if you're ok with everything then coolbeans keep at it.

Also can I kidnap?

Unless she somehow overheard someone calling me by my name in the break room i highly doubt she knows it already. But if she does somehow know my name already I would feel kinda salty lol.

And no, it's not because i'm scared to ask. It's because I legitimately never think about it when we talk. We just have good convos. It's only afterwards that the thought comes to mind, and I usually forget about it soon after.

And plus she has two kids with a guy that randomly dumped her about a month ago. I'm iffy on dating women with kids already, and women who are still recovering from a breakup. Double no from me so far.

And no, you can't kidnap.

My former roommate and I were like that. I knew her for literally a year before I heard a friend of mine call her by name and I'm like "uhhh who tf is that?" It was a while after that that we agreed to be roommates because we're both pretty chill people who do witchy things. I'll miss her a bit this year, but I'll be living in a house with three friends of mine.

Since this falls under the "other bull" section, I've been experiencing unusually high dysphoria lately. I'm an AFAB person, and I never really had a problem identifying as "girl", until a few things came crashing down on me.

First of all, even starting in early childhood, I have wanted to wear men's clothing and have had countless dreams where everything is the same...except my bottom parts. In middle school, I got into trouble once because a lot of boys were wearing ties one day and I was told to remove mine. In high school, I almost stopped wearing women's underwear completely, and later, stopped wearing bras (hey, I'm tiny in the chest and can get away with it). I've always had a preference for men's body wash. Most unusual, probably, is that I also have the capacity to pee while standing. Lately I've been feeling a pull to start using a proper binder and to pack, since it always felt more natural in male drag.

Despite all this, my hand gestures and the fact that I sit with my legs crossed are undoubtedly feminine--but, taking away my vocal pitch and intonations (which I have even trained to sound masculine for crossplay and drag), my conversation style has been described as masculine or neutral. The way I think about things has also been described to me as masculine at times.

The final nail in my coffin here is that the other night as I was getting out of the shower, I looked in the mirror, and the way the light hit my face, a blueish-purple shadow was cast all around my jawline and around my lips, much like the beginnings of stubble, and something hit really hard.

I wouldn't say that I identify as a transguy, but there's some pretty damning evidence up there that I'm not exactly whole-heartedly a woman either.

It just really racks my brain around because like, I only experienced my first major bout of dysphoria freshman year of college, and I thought going on birth control would cool it off (although my primary reason was to relieve menstrual cramps and other unfortunate side effects), and for a while, it did, thanks to the pumps of feminine hormones. Still, even taking it regularly, the dysphoria seems to be creeping back. Even though I started to define myself as under the genderqueer umbrella, I never really thought that hard about not being a girl in the binary view of it.

This all would probably be a lot easier to figure out if my mother hadn't been so adamant about her very binary ideas about what a woman is supposed to be and practically forced me to fit it whether I liked it or not as a child, down to stupid little things like going to McDonalds and "Would you like a boy toy or a girl toy" and cutting me off saying "she wants the girl toy" when I totally wanted to play with the hot wheels truck. As my primary caregiver, her message to me was always to conform, so begrudgingly I just stopped complaining after a few years and forced myself into fitting this mold to the point that it's honestly scary to look back and see all this gender crisis mess.

TL;DR: gender is hard. Realizing the way you thought about yourself doesn't actually match a lot of how you conduct yourself is weird. Dysphoria sucks. Current status: seeking help from other nonbinary folks because I'm internally screaming.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: Lord Kesashi on July 07, 2018, 01:03:35 PM
I actually did suffer from Gender Dysphoria as a child/teenager. I think it maybe stems from the fact that my mother wanted a daughter and my father was very conservative towards gender roles. You know how you tell someone they can't have something and it makes them want it more. There also might be something to explore in exactly what kind of psychological relationship a mother and her child have during pregnancy.

For instance when my mother was pregnant with me she had cravings for ketchup on literally everything. Not figuratively. And that's my motto in life is ketchup on everything. She was more extreme than me, but I do like ketchup on things that typically have ketchup.

You're not going to find anyone who cares about you as much as family (generally speaking), and to get to a point where you genuinely have to consider cutting them off completely because they may not accept a certain decision is very difficult. At some point I heard about the statistic that transgender suicide rates are alarmingly high, but they are worse if the not the same post-transition(operation/hormones). That really made me question whether or not this would bring me any happiness, and if it wouldn't: what is the other option.

What we really need to think about is the fact that gender dysphoria is not a mental disorder, but it's really you realizing that gender stereotypes are inefficient especially for you. They are incorrect, they are not representative of all people of that gender. Most gender norms that are practical are afforded to men. Pants are practical. Not crying is practical especially for someone who's supposed to go to war. So over time people have stopped questioning a woman's decision to wear pants because how else could she ride a bike.

Gender dysphoria is really you simply asking "why". This is something that my father told me recently after he had really changed his way of thinking is that the people of his generation never asked why. They didn't question anything. My theory is that stems from being in a less privileged time period. Starving children in America (bet you thought I'd say Africa, but they're starving here too) have no time to worry about if they're "cis-gendered" or not. You have to have an extremely easy life for that to concern you. The fact that we can have this discussion is proof of that.

I just don't believe that transitioning is necessary and I don't believe that it solves anything. The reason why I dress the way I do is not because of my gender, but because the women I'm attracted to are attracted to the way I dress. It's because the clothes I wear are practical. It's because the people I want to impress, are impressed by the clothes I wear. If I want to wear a dress, I can do that, and I think it's wrong for someone to tell me I can't. But that wouldn't take away my Y chromosome. Because that's all it really means to be a man is to have a Y chromosome.

I'm very conservative now, but I don't believe there is anything wrong with transexuality if that's what someone is interested in. If you genuinely like the idea of being seen as a the opposite sex and that's just what you want to do with your life, then I fully support that. But I think that treating gender dysphoria, something we call a mental illness, by feeding it, is like treating depression by giving someone a noose. Suicide rates would probably go up if we gave people with clinical depression nooses rather than therapy or medication, right? That would make sense. Say if I was a weaboo and I wanted to be Japanese. But the only way to be Japanese is to literally be born there from Japanese parents or immigrant parents in Japan. I could make my skin pale, raise my cheek bones, and change my eyes, but that would just be racist wouldn't it? (Japanese people are pretty racist themselves, especially towards themselves, so it wouldn't be too inaccurate) In the same way it's sexist to say I'm a woman because I do these things and I look this way.

I don't have to be Japanese in order to enjoy japanese culture. I don't have to be a woman in order to enjoy anything of the things that women get to do. The only thing that changing your sex actually does is change which bathroom you can use and which prison you go to. (Trust me, you don't want to go to a male prison if you have the option).  Everything else you already had a legal right to do if you live in the US. And anyone who tries to stop you is literally denying you your 1st amendment rights. Well . . . figuratively.

That's my experience and my personal opinion is that loving yourself and getting to know yourself is much more productive that trying to change things that you can't actually change.

Post by: MahluaandMilk on July 07, 2018, 03:42:18 PM
I wouldn't know the relationship I had with the person carrying me because I was carried by a surrogate.

I can agree about a lot of that, and it's probably worth noting that while I do live a moderately privileged life, my immediate family and I do fall below the poverty line and I, only 21 years old, am in enough student loan debt that I'll probably have it forever. There are some times that we come dangerously close to losing our house, and while there may be food in the fridge, there have been times that I feel guilty even eating. On top of that, I do live in a region of the United States where there are a lot of "unspoken" laws that are still socially enforced. I may have a "legal" right to things, but not a social right to it. The Bible Belt is like that. Unfortunately, I can be fired on the spot for even the mere suggestion that I, a person who appears female, likes other people who appear female, and that is considered normal and even okay in this state. I think it's a little unfair to both these newer generations and to the older generations to differentiate based on situation rather than how its people are affected. People who drown in five feet of water are no less dead than people who drown in fifty feet of it--likewise, every generation has its struggles. For this generation, it is questioning the previously unquestioned power structures and the "identity politics" that come with it. Things may appear equal on the surface, but to treat it all people as equal and their anger as "equal" when there is still that underlying power structure simply does not work.

More to the point of my gender, though, there is actually a bit of a legal problem. The more I come to know myself, the more I realize that I fall under the nonbinary umbrella--but most if not all legal documents are obsessed with the binary, as are many people. There's still that stupid argument going on over whether the "they singular" pronoun is a thing (and language adapts, so of course it can--there used to be all sorts of other pronouns in Old English that we lost with time. While it's usually a closed category, social change is a primary motivator for categories to shift). The fact that Standard English is still debating it depicts our current climate for nonbinary people. Standard English has never been anything but the language of those in power, used as a "universal" because it is perceived as the most correct, readily understood, and has the widest audience.

People don't usually call Rihanna "Robyn", and nobody I know cares to ask what some rapper's "real names" are, but people demand that kind of thing of trans and nonbinary people all the time. As soon as someone appears just androgynous enough for people to question, they ask about assigned sex at birth usually (although at my uni, there are a gracious number of blessings who instead ask for pronouns), and this whole idea of "What are you really?" is nothing more than an attempt by others to categorize people based on personally opinionated boxes instead of just letting people be. It seems to me that people are so terrified of uncertainty that when the binary structure is removed, they feel like they've lost an important piece of their worldview, which makes them immediately defensive. I have sympathy for that, but not for when simple passing questions turn to harassment, as I've seen it do with "but what are you really?" It's really...unfortunate.

We are seeing society be reinvented, and change only happens on the outside edge of the comfort zone. Things are being questioned, and some people really don't like it. What I'd want to know is why those people would rather target living people than the worldviews that encourage denying those people the ability to exist? Why is it still legal to fire me because I happen to be attracted to women? Whose business is it anyway when I'm not even with anybody at the moment? And why, if the gender stereotypes our society perpetuates clearly do not fit some people, do people get angry at the people for not fitting the mold rather than the mold for being false advertising on "one size fits all"?

Well I can say legally you definitely do want to identify as female. Legally women have every advantage. The select service only applies to men, female prison in which you are less likely to be assaulted, maternity leave. Anything else does go against the 14th amendment. But I understand not everything is worth going to the supreme court over. Which in of itself is a sign of this being a first world problem. And it being a first world problem doesn't make it invalid. I wouldn't insist that, I'm just saying being able to worry about that means you have a lot to be grateful for in life. (I go to art school so you know I have the most first world of first world problems. I often struggle to even)

I get it. I was evicted from the house I lived in for 18 years. And for a long period of time I lived far below the poverty line (25,000) until my household started making about 26,000 a year and we lost every poverty benefit that we had so it really didn't get better. Free lunch went to reduced lunch. But I made it through because of family and that's why it was especially hard for me to say goodbye to them. Due to the job market my father has gone from 6 figures to nothing for months twice now. I can hardly imagine dealing with that, but my parents are divorced, so it was never really my problem what my father went through.

Think about like a generation that didn't have GPS. How much harder it is to get around without both having a map of the world and a map of yourself that shows exactly where you are in relation to where you need to be a it runs a mathematical algorithm to calculate exactly what it thinks the best way to get there would be with regards to current traffic, highway closures, and accidents. Imagine how much harder it is to have to ask someone for directions, watch the news for accidents, look at a map, look at where you are versus having that provided for you. Imagine having to actually mail things to people.

They lived in a time where you had to memorize someone's number in order to call them. Technology does afford us a lot of privileges that they didn't have. My parents were actually a part of the students who were violently attacked by white southerners during desegregation when they were trying to go to school. I never had to deal with that. It's one thing about feeling hated for choosing to be transgender, but being hated for not choosing your skin is a very horrible reality. Obviously you wouldn't feel comfortable with yourself, but nobody ever has to know that you're homosexual or that you feel like a different gender if you didn't want them to. But your skin can't ever change. You can't possibly hide your skin.

I can't imagine what that felt like. Having a good life doesn't make your problems invalid. We look at how the "privelaged white male" commits suicide more often than any other ethnic group. All these first world countries have suicide rates higher or comparable to their homicide rates.

The human brain is non-binary right. That's obvious. I think it's very destructive they way we define genders and tell people they can't do something because of their gender. I would say it's illegal to do that except in situations like bathroom, prison, draft (which should be illegal to discriminate who is forced to sign up for the selective service). But the body is not non-binary. More than 99% of the population is one or the other, and if they're not they're just a mixture of the two which also 99% of the time for them heavily leans to one side or the other. I believe that you should be allowed to be as non-binary as you want, psychologically. But physiologically it's not necessary. The assumption that it is necessary is sexism.

The real problem is not the binary of the genders, but of gender stereotypes. What is more beneficial for us is to remove these boundaries than to ascribe new ones. That's like saying instead of voting for women's rights, women should convert to men. Women don't get to have rights, if they want rights they can become a man. That's what transgenderism really does, "I don't get to do this", so instead of changing a discriminatory rule that shouldn't exist, "I'm going to support it".

I don't believe that transgerism as a personal aspiration is bad. I think that if you want to be perceived as a man, or even just as a transman or androgynous purely for the sake of changing the perception of you. For changing the outside. It's your life, you do what you want. I don't believe in doing it to change the inside. I would support you being yourself regardless of which gender you are. I think the fact that you can make a man look like a compelling and "passable" woman or a woman look like a man is really cool and it's a skillful challenge to pull off. I really think that's cool in isolation. I just think that's not a good way to approach illegal and unjustified discrimination against the sexes.

My family couldn't say, "we're not allowed to go to school (a good school), so we'll just become white". That in of itself is a privilege we have. They identified as american citizens, but they weren't born as American citizens. Should they change themselves or the law? That's the question.

You are mostly right in that the most common number stated for intersex births is approximately 1.7% and therefore about 98% of the population is seen as either AMAB or AFAB, however what has come to be defined as intersex is also changing. There's also the concern of genotype versus phenotype. If I had to pinpoint where I'm having trouble agreeing with you is the use of "want to" language. It suggests that things like gender identity or sexuality are "choices". They are not.

Looking in the animal kingdom, we're not alone. Some female lions grow manes. Male giraffes sometimes, almost more frequently, attempt to mate with other male giraffes. There was a study done with sheep that suggests that asexuality is also a reality. I believe the number was about 3% of the sheep in the study showed no sexual stimuli response to pheromones or mating situations or however it was being measured.

That said, it isn't about the outside at all. It is that "inside" bit that, as you said, can't and shouldn't really be changed. It starts internally and then presents externally. I know quite a few trans and nonbinary people given the population distribution and likelihood of having known them, and many of them don't seek surgery or hormone treatment. Some still gender express with their assigned sex at birth despite identifying differently on an emotional, social, and psychological level. Some trans people don't even experience dysphoria as the common medical definition entails. They are no less trans or nonbinary, though. It's kind of arrogant to assume that they're "changing" something inside when inside is something we still don't have the capacity to see. No one can tell anyone else who they should be. To think that we know a person better than that person can figure themselves out is simply ludicrous. In my experience, the human identity is so complex that we cannot fully understand ourselves, let alone another person.

I do agree whole-heartedly that the whole idea of binary identities is destructive, and that's my point. Why set up laws like that anyway? Who does it benefit? In what ways do those benefits exist? Why have those benefits been selected for that group, who selected them, and for what purpose? Those decisions affect us daily. Sure we may not have to worry about memorizing phone numbers, but because we are advanced, this has become our new "problem", as it were. I'm not saying destroy the whole system, because such a stark and immediate change is entirely implausible and ineffective. Rather, I'd much prefer if we start engaging with these "laws" and start bending them to suit the reality that best suits us.

If humans are good for anything, it's bending the rules to benefit their reality. We're pretty adapt about using tools, making life easier for us and ours, and problem-solving when we want to be.

I don't want to offend you, but there are some things where we fundamentally disagree. It's very rare to have a conversation like this be this civil and informative and interesting, so I don't want to take that for granted.

There are some women who genuinely like the stereotypical role for a woman and some men like the stereotypical role for a man. If you don't want a family, does that take away your second X chromosome? Doing something non-traditional cannot take away the fact that you are a woman. The fact that you feel ashamed to be who you are because you have 2 XX chromosomes is not the fault of your gender, but the fault of people who told you something you can't actually change is preventing you from being who you are. If you assume that those people are telling the truth, you can imagine why so many tansgender people would commit suicide and when you think about the fact that you cannot actually change your chromosomes, you understand why transexuals continue to commit suicide after they transition. 

Your ability to have short hair doesn't change whether or not you have a Y chromosome. And that's a protected right that you should have as an American citizen. What I brought up was intersex was a very broad term that relates to minor things like having a small penis or a large clitoris. A very small portion of that is full package futanari which isn't even a new gender it's just a combination of the 2. I don't think we should define a new race of humans because some are born with 11 fingers. I don't think that being born with 11 fingers makes you any less human, or being born with a large clitoris makes you any less of a woman. I think it's very offensive to say that, but that is exactly what transgenders do. When a transgender man says that he is a woman because he thinks this way, he is now imposing that idea on all women this is what you think like, this is what you look like, this is what you dress like, if you do not, you are not a woman.

I'm not insisting that you are or that you need to change anything inside except obviously your self-esteem. Your ability to love yourself regardless of your chromosomes is the only thing about you on the inside that I think should change. If you can love yourself independent of your gender, but still want to change genders then I don't believe there's anything wrong with that.

Whether or not your attraction and preferences are a choice is not what I'm talking about. I would agree with you that the human brain and human body are extremely complicated. For that reason I cannot make a definitive statement on whether or not sexuality or gender identity is a choice. I can say that for me it was a choice. Gender technically was not a choice because I can never actually become a woman, but to be comfortable with that fact is a choice for me. That's my experience. My life. I have nothing else to confirm or deny the idea that sexuality and gender identity is not a choice. For me, they are. I refuse to make a statement on if it is a choice for anyone else because I haven't researched it, I don't think it matters, and it really doesn't affect me.

What does matter is whether or not you choose to express that. Which is a choice. I don't think it's bad to make that choice. I'm not against any of those things, and I strongly support your right to make that choice. Whether or not your desires are a choice is still a question. A question that I will not take a stance on.

For example there's this book by a christian man. I don't remember the name now, but it's called something along the lines of how to be a gay christian. To summarize it's sort of built on the idea that if being gay for you isn't a choice, then he promotes abstinence. So if in his experience it isn't a choice, and in my experience it is, that may be something that's relevant to consider, maybe it is a choice, maybe it's not, maybe it's a choice for some people, not a choice for other people. So again I refuse to take a stance on whether or not it is a choice. But all I can say is that for me it is a choice.

We do have some fundamental differences.

I believe that transexuality and non-binary ideology is sexist and ineffective when used to treat gender dysphoria.
I refuse to take a stance on whether or not being gay or transgender is a choice.
I believe that you should love yourself regardless of things that you can't change.
I believe your gender is something that you cannot change.
I do believe it is possible to know more about another person than they do.
I do believe there are 2 genders rooted only in anatomy
I don't believe that gender or gender laws should be based on anything other than anatomy

Fundamentally we may never be able to agree there.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: MahluaandMilk on July 08, 2018, 03:18:38 PM
I find myself very unable to agree on some of those points at the end there.

Why should there even be laws based on anatomy? It's been proven time and time again that proper sexual health education often prevents unwanted pregnancy, and it's possible to teach people how to have healthy relationships. There is no inherent need to segregate people based on "well they could make a baby" because, as you mentioned with the prison system, sexual assault still definitely has the potential to occur even within that segregated environment. I find the assumption that anatomy-based segregation is its own form of sexism. "You can't leave a person with a vagina and a person with a penis alone because they can and, here's the kicker,  undoubtedly will make an (unwanted) baby" is juvenile. And yet, it seems like that's the baseline. Would it be the baseline if people stepped up and addressed that there's more to human interaction than sex? Would it be the baseline if people stopped acting like sex is this thing that is an unquestionable result of human anatomy and not actually an action that has been chosen to be performed?

And don't get me started on bathrooms. All private household bathrooms are gender neutral for all intents and purposes. Ever been to an event with portipotties? Guess what those are? Gender neutral. And why are baby changing stalls only put in "female" restrooms, like, hello, ever heard of a single father? Again, the assumption that sex can and therefore will occur is stupid. If someone breaks a taboo, enforce consequences. It's not the fault of the environment. It's the fault of someone who overstepped a boundary. Accountability shouldn't be that hard, but people seem so obsessed with blaming everything but the fact that a person made a decision.

Post by: Lord Kesashi on July 08, 2018, 11:42:50 PM
Well hopefully the people that you choose to marry or your family are not interested in assaulting you sexually, but I get that you can't always control that especially as a child. There are huge biological differences between men and women and I'm not certain, but I'm pretty sure your bones don't even care if you're intersex, your bones will always be male or female. Household bathrooms and porta potties are gender neutral because only 1 person is meant to use them at a time. So you're still as segregated as you would be in a women's restroom because a man and a woman won't ideally be in there at the same time. Most household bathrooms only have a 1 toilet. I've seen porta potties with multiple toilets and they were gender segregated because they were designed to have 2 people in there at once.

It is true a lot of people just ignore it and go in there with there as boyrfriend/girlfriend anyway. That's one of the reasons why I love the fact that men are so homophobic because that means sex offenders are also homophobic and if we separate homophobic sex offenders from women more often like with prisons, changing rooms, restrooms, anime bathhouses, we can do more to prevent sexual assault. It isn't the fact that they can't control it. It's the fact that they want to. If they both don't want to then the man definitely wants to and might do it regardless of what the woman wants.

This was designed during the time where everyone was heterosexual so segregating genders was a great way to prevent sex entirely. During the time where everyone was supposed to be right handed two knights would shake hands with their right hand to ensure the other person can't grab a sword and stab him because his left hand isn't as dexterous as his right. That's one of the reasons why it was important to them to push that ideology that you should be right handed, it adds more consistency to society.

It's important for the medical field to be able to assess immediately the gender of the victim. The amount of anesthesia you get, or the way they treat your body is different depending first on your gender. You could kill men if you gave them the same treatment or medication as women and vice versa.

I agree that generally, the biological differences are minor. Both genders can become soldiers, both genders can body build, both genders can win a game of jeopardy, but despite the fact that we can achieve the same things physically and psychologically there are biological differences involved. The only thing you can genuinely say a little girl cannot become when she grows up is a sperm bank donor.

I definitely don't agree with baby changing being only in the women's bathroom either. There's nothing biological that prevents a man from changing a baby, so that is a bad practice. There is something biological that prevents men from being pregnant, so it does make sense when there are laws regarding pregnancy that don't apply to men. That is an example where we use biological differences to define gender roles but we take it too far. As a kid we had both Playmobil (dolls) and Xevoz (action figures) in my family. That was back in the day where my mother would take us to the store and on Christmas and say "whatever you want, throw it in the basket". Back when we had money, right.

But even though my mother wasn't stringent on those gender roles, the choices I make today depend heavily on what heterosexual women are attracted to. Within reason, I have a style within those boundaries.

(Separate topic than the text walls above. Sort of a ranty thing since I'm anxious.)

So yesterday I was invited by and went hiking with my former boyfriend and girlfriend and two of their friends. Haven't hung out with them since before we broke up a month or two ago (due to a lack of time and stuff, no fights).

Erm, well anyways, I think one of their friends who was with us may have been flirting with me a bit? Saying they should buy me stuff and offers to carry me/my stuff when I was lagging behind from being out of shape. Other than that just walking beside me while the others were about 10 feet ahead and chatting the entire time. I've only met the guy 3 times and not frequently.

I'm not always very good at reading other people since I don't have much experience with being around people in friendly situations. I recoil when people are nice to me or try to get closer. So currently I'm on edge... I don't think the guy did anything wrong, but I feel like avoiding the situation... Not really sure what, if anything I should do.

Really mixed feelings. I want someone to spend time with, but at the same time I want to keep a wall up and not get attached to anyone. So I can't never tell if I like/don't like a person or if I just don't want hurt.

This probably doesn't sound coherent to anyone. It doesn't to me either. It's frustrating.
Title: Re: Women, Men, Sexuality and other bull
Post by: MahluaandMilk on July 10, 2018, 08:16:38 PM
Some people just have different boundaries, and that's okay. We live in a society that tells people like, "you shouldn't be uncomfortable because no harm, no foul", but really, everybody's different. I get the feeling if those offers and suggestions were made frequently and without a lot of situational prompting (e.g. suggesting to hold your stuff if you were showing any signs at all of strain makes sense, but to carry you, is different), then it at least seems like a cry for attention.

It can be difficult to set up boundaries like that because people get so defensive about it, but you're allowed to do that. If you run into that person again, you can always ask "Did you mean anything by that? Because I don't think I'm in a place where I can handle that kind of thing right now". If they were just being friendly, the situation goes smoothly. If they were trying to get your attention for flirty reasons and they proceed to get defensive or rude about asking them to not do those things, they're probably a toxic piece of crap you don't want to be around anyway.

The thing about being uncomfortable or nervous is that it doesn't have to make sense. You don't owe anyone an explanation. You're allowed to just say "Hey, that makes me uncomfortable, could you maybe tone that kind of behavior down around me?" If they respect it, cool. If they don't, then what respect do they have for you or your boundaries?

I really don't think he'd be rude or toxic really. He seemed genuinely nice, just overly so. And seemed to be self-conscious to the point of being nervous. But I don't know how he normally is around other people. I did tell him I wasn't comfortable being picked up and he seemed to listen.

Gee, it almost sounds like he has a crush, but doesn't want to admit it, so instead of asking straight up to avoid the fear of rejection, awkwardness and embarrassment that would cause, he contents himself with just being a very nice guy with the very unrealistic expectation that the girl would someday ask instead, which never actually happens, then reminds himself of how undeserving he is of her so he just wallows in his spiral of depression, only to repeat the cycle when he meets someone new...

 :sure: ...not that I'm saying anything.

That's to be expected.

It's a pretty common sight with introverted guys. Not many know how relationships work, let alone be in one. They say it's better you learn to be in a relationship early so that you don't make the same mistakes later in life. Some simply never get the chance.  :ninja:

I mean they got cheaper options, but the fact that option is even there to begin with is like crazy to me.

So I'm starting to feel like older woman are naturally attracted to me. I've been in some situations before where an older woman has expressed some sort of interest in me, but I've never paid it too much attention until recently. This chick who works in a different department than I do kinda randomly offered me her number after a brief conversation. Granted, we sort of talked casually before then, but I was still surprised by how quickly it happened.


Of course, this all can be chalked up to coincidence. Normally I would overthink this kind of ish, but I know there's not much to it really. Certain woman find me attractive, and certain woman don't. It just so happens to be older woman in this case.

Which, by the way, I don't mind at all since older woman already know what they and don't mess around when it comes to getting what they want. And I, for one, can appreciate that.
