BarkingUnicorn: We had break-the-bed sex, then snuggled. She was nattering about her family when a hunch prompted me to ask, "How old were you when your father started abusing you?" She started crying and asked how I knew. I just did.


Nice choice of pillow talk.

I truly don't have to fark insane.
And have less patience for stupid.

Or maybe just sit in my leather chair with a glass of wine, pet my unpoisoned dog and watch my big-ass TV

The dark triad score was positively correlated with their "dressed-up" attractiveness - a finding that mirrors previous findings....People with dark personalities seem to be better at making themselves physically appealing.\

OK, so...

Tat'dGreaser: JackieRabbit: As with most psychological studies --- well, duh!

There's only one rule, guys: never stick your dick in crazy. The sex is not worth the trouble. No, it isn't. I made this mistake once in high school. It was good to learn the lesson so young. Never again.

F*ck that

Stick your dick in all the crazy you want, just don't give them your real name.


Learn the rule! Your master plan needs rethinking. Crazy != Stupid. Most crazy chicks are rather bright and resourceful. She'll figure out your real name, where you work, where you live, etc. It's quite easy.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Lsherm: I dated an insanely hot first generation Korean girl back in the late 80's, and she tried to stick a fork through my scrotum because she bought me a pair of silk boxers and I wasn't wearing the very next day when we had sexytime.

Yeah, this is why I'm still single. Women invariably pull some shiat like this with me, and I walk away before it gets serious. I have yet to meet a lesbian who wasn't crazy, addicted, or in recovery. I know there are some out there, but I've yet to meet one.

It's self reinforcing, apparently I'm attractive, and also some kind of crazy. Heavy trust issues, so women give me a shot then realize they have no way to understand a good majority of anything I'm saying/how to break down my barriers, and so they dip, further compounding my already abysmal confidence and self esteem. This gives the next woman that tries an even further crushed individual..

i don't try anymore, and generally ignore women besides on a platonic level.

Wow. So much "this" with a lot of the previous posts. I've met a who hot/crazies

1. Worked in my building, we hung out three times (Never spent a dime on her) after the third we were supposed to go to her work party but at the last minute she cancelled saying the party wasn't happening because a supervisor's family had passed (not true). Then two weeks later she said she thought she was pregnant, but later via text said she'll pray the kid away... somehing she said she'd done before.

2. Showed some signs of being crazy the night we hung out and she wanted to spend the night, I knew if she did it would be trouble. I told her no and she went nuts, told me off, kept throwing her jacket at me. I got her to leave, but it took her a few minutes to figure out how to get out of my neighborhood (which makes it hard to fine my place too - bonus).

3. Had a third who double dips and fingered all the food on the first date. She was rude to the waiter and pychotic. I wish I knew that before I went out. I bailed on the date. Never done that before.

I have more

This is the thread where we talk about crazy chicks? Cool, I'm in...

So about a year ago I was talking to a girl from match.com. Right in the first line of her profile she admitted to be "a little bit crazy" so I mostly messaged her out of naive curiosity. After only exchanging a few messages with her she was telling me how I sounded like such a sweet and cool guy and asking about when we were going to meet. I soon discovered that if I didn't reply to her email within say, a half hour, she would send me a follow up email. And then another email after an hour. And then a third after a few hours. Then a fourth after a day. I managed to go an entire weekend without hearing from her and I thought I was in the clear, then she sent me a few... revealing... pictures to get my attention. Since I'm a guy and she's an attractive woman, her plan did work. I was really tempted to meet her in person just because I assumed she would give me a fark I'd never forget, but I was afraid of what dangers the figurative Pandora's box would bring into my life.

After a few more emails I learned she was a divorcee (mind you she was only 24) and she wanted to have a bunch of kids, I think it was something like 5 at a minimum. Eventually my lack of replying must have caused her to give up or she met a guy who was more into crazy than I am, but the emails stopped.

Well, mostly stopped. After not hearing from her for a couple months I randomly got an email from her asking what type of web development I did. She wanted to save the world and needed a website to front her project. Yeah... no.

L.D. Ablo: My ex-fiancee was remarkably hot. She looked like a cross between Reese Witherspoon and a young Cybil Shepherd. She turned heads and farked like a rabbit. Things were good. When she was sober. She is an angry drunk.


Wow, you've described my ex almost exactly. Except I was married before I found out just how crazy crazy could get. And we lived together for a year prior to getting hitched! Mine ended up with the guys in the white coats with the butterfly nets coming to take her away for a little vacation in the ward, and all on Christmas Eve. That was a fun holiday, lemme tell ya.

But hot damn, she could swallow the schlong just like the kielbasa gal from the Howard Stern flick.
 
2012-11-29 09:04:34 AM  
There are lots of crazy ugly people but nobody dates them. The crazy beautiful people don't think they need to change because they can always get dates. The reason why as you get older there seems to be more crazy people is because the non-crazy already found someone.
 
2012-11-29 09:05:13 AM  
You see there's one universal truth in this. People are crazy. Every damned one of us. The differences of course are in the type and level of crazy. The trick, and one which I have yet to master, is finding the right type and level of crazy.

High levels of crazy, especially daddy issue crazy in women, tends towards towards toe curling, eyes rolled back, hanging on for dear life amazing bedroom time. Sadly it also tends to make them do shiat like call you during morning formation to scream at you over the phone because you left the toilet seat up. Or while you're away for training she drains your joint bank account the day after payday, or calling your command up while you're on deployment saying that because she sprained her ankle she can't take care of your kid so they need to send you back. Or worse yet, while you're on deployment she goes out clubbing leaving your less than a year old child at home with no babysitter.

The lesson in this? Don't stick your dick in crazy without protection, and if you do, don't automatically go and get married. And make sure you check in on the kid to make sure they're alright.

/yes I ended up with custody

clyph: Every guy should stick his dick in crazy at least once in his life. It's an important life lesson.

Until you've lived it you just don't understand why people tell you not to do it. It's only in hindsight that can you understand why it was a bad idea.



Yep.

I did this intentionally a few years ago. All of the signs were there, and I went for it anyway. Three months of drama, misunderstandings and the best sex ever ensued. Every time I think "Hey, it wasn't so bad...I should call her " I remember the time I was woken up out of a dead sleep on a Tuesday at 3am because she was yelling outside my bedroom window and what happened after that.

While the main focus of this thread has transmogrified into bro tales and old dog advice, itseems the main point of the article is overlooked. The study suggsts a relationship between physical attractiveness and the so- called dark personality triad. But what it seems to suggest to me is how easily it us to fall into the veneer of image at the expense of the real, facade instead of structure. I think this is cultural. Note they say the "dressed down" versions didnt elicit the same responses. This is the reason businessmen and women wear "power" suits and we all get dressed up to impress...to create at least an apparition, a spectre of competence, confidence, and character. The problem grows when the character one plays becomes confused with the character one has...or doesnt. in our culture we hold these types...both the physically attractive and ego-driven...as models of success, when upon closer inspection they are like the jaguar in mad men: looks great but doesnt run. Or: What sells is the can, not the soup.

once dated a chick who claimed to be a lesbian vampire. Had a coffin with a see-through window in it as her coffee table. Knew I was getting into crazy but she had an Atari 2600 hook up to a 50" big screen she would let me play with all day long while bring me cookies.

/Sex in the coffin was pretty awesome as well

On your 2nd date when she walks over to the dresser and opens a box to show you "baby", and it's a .357, tell me a shot of adrenaline won't make you side glance for the quickest exit. The window is a considered option. 40 years ago and I still remember.

Unrepressed Memory

Oh yeah... This is so great! You're so hard! This is nothing like Greg. He was a guy I met in the library. We tried to do it in the stair well but he couldn't get it up. So we went back to the dorm and he put my panties on it seemed to work. He could come like three or four times in a row like that.

Now Steve likes this (yeah. we're still doing it) . But he cried a lot so I had to mommy him. Do you want me to mommy you? No? Okay. But we should try it sometimes.

Dave wanted to put it in my pooper. Do you think that makes him gay? It's feels like a BM going backwards (laughing). But his peener was pretty tiny. I mean, if he got it up and walked in to a wall, he'd hurt his nose first.

Yes. Yes! Yes! Wow. You know who else could make me come like that? Frank. He could just touch me and I'd lose it. I probably miss Frank the most. He was a good, generous lover. Never took no for an answer, if you get my drift.

(nothing I am doing now counts as sex. It's more like completing a contract)

That feels nice. Do you want me to wiggle around? Safir liked it when a wiggled my a$$. He'd scream in Farsi and call me his love camel. Another one that like the back door but he also visited the main entrance too. I guess that doesn't make him gay, right?

I'll take it on the boobs but no where else. You gotta set your limits. You know how many guys wanted to stick that thing in my mouth? Lots! Eww. Gross! I'm not saying I don't like it, but want a little more attention than just getting pushed to my knees and looking at that. I mean, it's cool if there's like two guys you just met and you just want to see their faces when you do something like that. But when you're serious, like we are, there have to be limits.

Are we done? Oh. That was nice. You're one of the best, for sure.


And what I should have said...

I have to tell you. I am an alien from the planet Nexxus 5. We name and number our planets because we have a whole bunch of them. I was sent here to have sex with an Earth female. You were chosen from all the others, so that must be something. I will be returning to my home planet now. I'll release this Earth male's body and wipe his memory on the way out. He won't know you after tonight. Sorry.

Oh and if I knocked you up, Nexxus women usually have litters of 200 offsprings. Yeah. Two hundred kids. The birthing usually takes a couple of months. If you don't want 200 kids, you'd better do something about it, like right now. Well, I've gotta catch the 11:10 UFO. It's been swell. Nanoo. Nanoo.

fyrewede: Mugato: Because normal girls are boring and crazy girls are awesome?

My husband used to believe that -- dated a string of batshiat redheads and was even married a batshiat brunette for 12 years. Then he got tired of wearing the red cape and the "S" on his chest and cleaning up whatever crazy mess these women created for themselves and/or him.

He and I have been together for nearly 4 years now and he regularly thanks me for being sane and functional in *addition* to being awesome in other ways.

It is possible to find a woman who is awesome and sane, but you have to first believe it is possible and then refuse to lower the bar for anything less than having both in one person.

Oh, and

make sure you're bringing "sane and awesome" to the table yourself so that you can attract a compatible female.

Nicely worded advice...Thanks.

doglover: BarkingUnicorn: My fling with crazy was a gorgeous, 5' 10" Swedish gal. We met in a bar, went out to dinner the next night. Asked what she wanted for dessert and she replied, "You." I shoulda known right then.

OK, I did. But it was my turn for crazy.

We had break-the-bed sex, then snuggled. She was nattering about her family when a hunch prompted me to ask, "How old were you when your father started abusing you?" She started crying and asked how I knew. I just did.

Turned out she was an ex-hooker, had a coke habit, and was a mean drunk. I remember a Heineken bottle passing by my ear to break against the wall.

But Gott damn, that gal loved to fark! Got me into my first threesome, with an equally tall brunette lesbian. There were a couple of foursomes, as well. Crazy is contagious.

Lasted about six months. Then she said some "old friends" were making life in Denver difficult for her. She had a job offer as a horse trainer in Arizona. So I drove her in a U-Haul truck to Flagstaff and flew home.

Drank heavily in strip clubs for a couple of weeks and then I was over her and crazy.

That was over 20 years ago and I'm still getting the weirdest boner. :-)

God I hate humble bragging.

Sensual Tyrannosaurus: Also, I can't help but comment: Why are people on Fark so old? I swear the average user on this site is about 15 years older than the average user of most sites I find myself on.
It's a good thing because there's less idiocy, but it's hard to see myself as being in a group of peers when everyone else is 40.


In internet terms, it's a pretty old site. And it hasn't gotten unpopular or passe in that time. And, for whatever reason, a lot of the people just haven't left. Hell, I think I got an account after lurking for at least a year or so. I can't think of any other site that I still visit from 2001 or before. So I guess we've aged with the site...

That's the best part. Whenever you're stuck without an internet connection, or just in the shower and need to, uh, [insert jerk off euphemism], you can just recall all the Crazy you've had. It doesn't work that way for women you've actually loved and cared for with every fiber of your being. For some reason, it's just the Crazy that still turns you on after all this time.

My ex-fiancee is one the hottest women in three states, but recalling her doesn't turn me on. But that one girl in the stockroom of a bar who harassed me for months afterward does.

That's using the cerebral cortex to make a decision as opposed to the basic "reptile brain."

You have to find JUST the right mix of crazy to get a keeper. Too much crazy and she mind as well be in a padded cell. Too little crazy and it is like dating a pose-able statue that says uninteresting things.

Martian_Astronomer: So, this is apparently the thread where I'm apparently supposed to reminisce about the fantastically hot but religious girl that I dated for a year in grad school, who then dumped me when I decided I wasn't religious anymore? Who then spent the next 2-3 years alternately shunning me for being evil, or trying very hard to befriend me again so that she could save my soul, but crying whenever I disagreed with her about anything? Who, whenever I'd finally had enough and broke off contact would eventually find some sort of excuse to get me to talk to her again?

...and who, despite the fact that I'm completely aware that she's terrible for me and has other major issues, I would probably still take back (temporarily) if she caught me drunk, because she's fantastically hot and I'm not having much luck with women these days?

Yeah, like I'd confess to something stupid like that.

Eh don't worry about it, this is all you are going to get out of it.

Strangers rate the attractiveness of these people that have dark personalities higher when they are in their own clothing.
People don't rate them higher when they are dressed in gray sweat pants and a t-shirt, remove any makeup, and pull hair back in a pony tail.

"this suggests that narcissists are more skilled at carrying and presenting themselves in a way that immediately impresses others." What? Who'da thunk that a narcissist is very confident?!

apparition or spectre? to me that is ghost-like, non-existent. the suit and tie, high heels & make-up games adults play reminds me more of a veneer, a hard surface that one may buy into depending on how well we sell our masquerade. it is illusion but with greater depth.

re: "What sells is the can, not the soup" is true; that pretty eye-catching label may get the product off the shelf and into the shopping cart. But the time worn adage 'the proof is in the pudding' comes to mind. In the long run, are you going to stick with that soup, or never buy (or recommend) that brand again?

some of TFA i feel may be summed up by the old saying about the forbidden fruit, i forget how it goes but you know what i mean.

youth or lack of life experience can excuse dating the disturbed. as for those who have been there, done that and go back again because they think they like that amusement park ride, i pity such fools. there is something seriously wrong with anyone who will willingly take advantage of a mentally ill individual.

Dingleberry Dickwad: You see there's one universal truth in this. People are crazy. Every damned one of us. The differences of course are in the type and level of crazy. The trick, and one which I have yet to master, is finding the right type and level of crazy.

High levels of crazy, especially daddy issue crazy in women, tends towards towards toe curling, eyes rolled back, hanging on for dear life amazing bedroom time. Sadly it also tends to make them do shiat like call you during morning formation to scream at you over the phone because you left the toilet seat up. Or while you're away for training she drains your joint bank account the day after payday, or calling your command up while you're on deployment saying that because she sprained her ankle she can't take care of your kid so they need to send you back. Or worse yet, while you're on deployment she goes out clubbing leaving your less than a year old child at home with no babysitter.

The lesson in this? Don't stick your dick in crazy without protection, and if you do, don't automatically go and get married. And make sure you check in on the kid to make sure they're alright.

/yes I ended up with custody


That goes way beyond Daddy issues. I'm guessing that behavior heads into the realm of low IQ combined with sociopath like traits. And your post reminds me, I haven't talked to my kids about sex lately and my older one was just at a retreat where there was, apparently, an awful lot of smooching going on.

I don't know how effective my talks are. I think I'm sending mixed messages. They tend to go kind of like this: "Wait until you are married at age 30 or so. If you don't wait, use two kinds of birth control, two kinds because birth control can fail. Don't have sex if you can't take care of a baby because birth control can fail. Don't judge others who have an abortion, but know I will be disappointed if either of you choose that route because birth control that's why. Never, never have sex with anyone you think will be a bad parent. It doesn't matter how great the person seems otherwise. If you have sex with a person you know will be a bad father or mother, the birth control will fail. I don't know why, but it will."

They're still kind of young. I'm wondering how old they ought to be before I share the stories that have been related to me by others such as tales of antibiotics that negated the oral contraceptives and tattered condoms.
