I want to see the male/female split on the sex questions, especially "your sex drive is too low."
 
2012-06-03 01:01:54 PM
I never give a reason for breaking up with someone. Is that cruel or kind?

BarkingUnicorn: I never give a reason for breaking up with someone. Is that cruel or kind?


That depends. If it's something like "you have very poor hygiene," it would probably be kind to let them know the reason, so they can correct it. By contrast, if it's something like "I didn't realize you were actually a real female," keeping it to yourself is probably for the best.

1 month, you only want a sexual relationship: Girl, why'd you give it up so soon then? I'm a man, if you offer it I'm gonna take it regardless. If you put the kibosh on me and make me wait maybe I wouldn't see you as simply a sex object.

What does "high maintenance" mean, anyway? I've never been accused of that one, and I've kinda got a vague idea of the kind of women that get described that way, but I'm not sure what about them is high maintenance and what it means.

"Crawl into the computer gaming and hide from having a life" wasn't on there. Granted it wasn't a sole or primary complaint, but it sure didn't help. Not that I'm down on gaming--the first decade of it was fine, it was in life-proportion about like other geeks with lives and families. (As opposed to geeks with no lives.)

"Not ready for a relationship" should have included "(with you)." That's usually the caveat, isn't it? "You've turned into relationship-serious person lets have heavy 'talks' all the time instead of connect and have fun and make life better person--not so good."

I wonder how much of women pulling away from sex is about emotional fear--fear of getting their hearts broken, being too connected, as the guy pulls away emotionally and things become to him about getting stank on his hang low and then she's emotionally attached (in love) and off he goes to the next fark buddy. So, self-fulfilling prophecy, he's pulling away and she pulls away, too--because she doesn't want to be so vulnerable to getting hurt if he's just farking her for farking's sake and going to dance right off without a care.

(I'm less prone to hold back on the sexy time--but I'm also a lot more able to separate sex for fun from sex for love than most women are. So part of that may be that I don't have as much to lose.)

It's a bit interesting to see that tied for 2nd place on the "physical flaws" chart was "too tall" at 19.4%. I wonder if that's guys who think the woman is too tall, or if there are lots of women who think a guy can be too tall? Being tall is usually touted as a "good" thing for guys.

Other than the "too fat" one, I would be surprised if less than 2/3 of the people who gave physical reason for a breakup were women. Even too tall. I'd expect the only men who gave too tall as a reason were for women taller than they were.

Interesting. The list didn't mention:

-throwing dishware at my face when you're angry
-slapping me for using the wrong temperature on the laundry
-"borrowing" my stuff and selling it
-letting your dog crap on the floor and then not cleaning it
-leaving wet bath towels in a pile against the wall until the paint starts to mildew
-leaving empty beer cans and bottles in your sock drawer instead of the recycling bin

Sexing you doesn't blind us to whether you're worth loving or not. Well, maybe it does--maybe it makes some women love men they shouldn't.

It's hard for women to wrap our heads around that sexing a guy frequently blinds you to the possibilities of emotionally connecting with that woman, usually ever.

Doesn't always happen, doesn't happen that way for all guys. And the exceptions are why it's so hard for us to wrap our heads around the sad fact that that's the way it does seem to work for a whole lot of guys.

It is very counter-intuitive to realize that you may have to say, "No, I won't fark you, because I like you, and I'm attracted to you, and I want to see if we emotionally connect or not and I don't want to screw that chance up by screwing too soon. I don't want to just be your friend."

Of course, then if the emotion thing doesn't connect up, there's nothing to keep you from farking like bunnies if the chemistry is still there.

Anyway. Women are insecure. We're afraid no guys will date us at all if we don't put out by the third date. And realistically, the overwhelming majority of guys--except in particular religions--will assume (frequently rightly) that there's something kinda crazy about a chick who isn't at least being loving and giving in some form or fashion by the third date.

If she's interested, she's interested. If she's not, she's not. Women are horny, too. We're madly eager to jump your bones on the first date. We're madly eager to jump your bones when we hand you our number. But if we really like you, we can't, because it's the one way to make absolutely sure we can't have you--because you do judge, and you do disappear, dammit.

So since "3rd date" seems to be the date at which most sane men will agree not to disappear just because they got some stank on their hang low, 3rd date is when most of us feel it's finally, perhaps, safe to put out with a guy we really like and want to see if maybe something goes somewhere with.

So, turning it around, man---that woman is only human. She's wanted to jump your bones from the start, but she knew you'd judge her for it. She has already waited three very long dates for you to feel righteous because she likes you, give it up, quit the judging, and decide if you actually like her back already.

I recently heard tall chicks have trouble getting dates, and I
I also like chicks way shorter than me, and of different ethnicites than myself, so maybe it's just a sworn duty to expand the gene pool in my family to break out of the Okie/Hispanic half-breed thing(I don't like to think about the Okie side too much, I know my dad's side of the family and they're... not normal), but I love tall women with a passion. I also regularly find myself insanely attracted to women with "big goddamned noses" as my friends so carefully put it, which might also put me at an advantage with the women who apparently I find insanely attractive but are derided at large. Now I just need to find me a big nosed, curly haired, tall Arabic or Indian girl and I'll be set.

Here's my two cents.

To start with, it's more my uncomfortability with dating a man MAJORLY shorter than I. I'm not big on traditional gender roles as a rule, but I like my men stronger than I am. This translates to things like them being able to hold me down during the business. It's HAWT. So sue me.

Anyway, I feel extremely self conscious and out of place when I'm dressed nice and I'm 6'2 in my heels, and the guy I am with is four or more inches shorter than me. That only works in Hollywood where all the supermodels don't care because they're used to being taller than everyone. It just makes me feel really out of place. With a taller guy, I at least feel like I don't stick out like a sore thumb. Plus, I'm kind of strong myself, and let's face it, no girl wants to date a guy she feels like she might break.

So it's part that some men might be intimidated by a tall girl who is built like I am, but it's part that women want a man bigger. Bigger hands, longer arms for hugs, the ability to tilt their heads UP rather than down for a kiss. Etc.

/does that help at all?

Oh, I have no problem (if I like the girl) to slow things down if they're getting too hot and heavy too soon. And yes, men do judge women who put out too soon, that is a sad fact. I dated this girl for 3.5 years, but she made me wait over a month and half with way more than 3 dates involved and the sex was white hot for the entire time when she did give it up. I miss that girl.
If it's the first date, and she's pawing at my junk I just know it's going to be a 'physical' relationship and just call it that. A couple weeks or months of fun sexy times. I would never look negatively on her, hell it takes two to tango.
Bottom line: if a guy is pouting because he's not getting sex by date 3 probably isn't worth it for the female's long term inner securities.
