Next thing you know a bunch of threads are going to pop up about how girls actually want nice guys who treat them right.

Want to know what women want in a man? Dont be a farking pussy. You can act pretty much any way you like as long as you dont come off as a wuss. Girls dont seem to dig it.

Thats right -- they would rather get slapped around by some asshole than put up with your dorky white knight bullshiat. Consider that next time you talk to a girl at the bar. Its not about realizing that you dont have to respect her -- (you should be respectful of her) Just remember that 99% of ladies dont give a rats ass about being respected and you shouldnt be wasting your time on people who have that little respect for themselves.

biatches are biatches are biatches. Find one of the few who aren't and get the fark out of the game.

I wouldn't take that bet... I think you're right.
I also think he's wrong. And I also think to myself that I'm ever so lucky that I get to act like my goofy hopless romantic self around my GF and it's ok. In fact, because she's known me for ever so long before we started dating, and she knows I'm a hopeless romantic it'd be odd if I didn't act that way.
For instance, I've gone out of my way to find a quill pen and an ink well so I can write her love letters and poems in the old timey way. I figure in this day and age of email and texts and what have you, they will make her feel special.

THATS FINE. I'm not saying go out and punch girls in the face. Just dont be a weener. Just dont put up with bullshiat just because it came out of someone with a vagina. Women arent little fragile butterfies. They can handle getting told to fark off once in awhile. And why would you consider telling a woman to fark off? Because you wouldnt hesitate to tell some guy spouting bullshiat to fark off. Women dont need special treatment, like every pussy is a slot machine waiting to cash out at some nice deed. People can sense where there partners bar is set and it matters in the relationship how they measure up in that. Girls dont want the guys from the Big Bang Theory. They want Harrison Ford as Indiana or Han Solo.

Not to mention hooking up with a long time friend and having it end up working out is rare to say the least. Your relationship while sounding ideal is far from the norm.

MaliFinn: aerojockey: MaliFinn: I'm an IT guy. I'm also fairly handsome and I was an athlete when I was younger. There are no women I have ever met - and I've met my share - who are impressed by my ability to subnet or solder a loose audio jack or write code. Looks? They work. Athletic physique? It helps. But I can count the number of times ladies have raised an eyebrow at my technical skills on an amputee's fingers.

I wrote a little Monopoly app for my graphing calculator when I was in high school. (This was a decade before writing handheld apps was cool, mind you.) One of the girls I showed it to looked at me like I was a god. Today I realize that that pretty much made her wife material, but I wasn't smart then. I figured lots of girls look at you like that when you show them Monopoly on your calculator, so no need to snatch up the first woman who looks at me like I'm a god.

Very nice. I can't top that, but I did entertain my Science class with impromptu games when the teacher was away, using chunks of 6-sided pencils as dice.


You've both got me beat. All I could do to impress the girls was lick my eyebrows.

mikefinch: lyanna96: You sound fat.

NO YOUR A TOWEL!!!!!


No my "A" towel? I'm afraid I don't understand what language you are speaking... If my "A" towel won't be useful, perhaps my "B" towel will suffice? Hrmmm... Maybe I'm missing something. Checking urban dictionary...

"The most useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value - you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand-to- hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal ; you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with."


Um. Ok, thanks for your (strange) input.

Women like power. What they perceive as power may change over time, but it's still power.
Muscles, strength, money, intelligence, whatever.
As long as there has been money, it has been power.

I really like writing the letters because they make my gf happy. But they take for-farking-ever!
It's like a letter or poem that would take 40 minutes to type as an email takes 5 or so hours to write on paper with my quill pen. I average about one word per dip in ink and have had to re-learn cursive so that I can write more and more quickly. Sometimes I get several words in, sometimes I only get a few letters. Fortunately, it's like several hours I get to focus solely on my girlfriend (who I love so, so much) so it's not really so bad. It's just sometimes hard to find that amount of free time.

FTA: "So potent is the techno-sexual's appeal, that nearly 40 per cent of men surveyed admitted to having exaggerated about their tech know-how, including their ability to mend and upgrade gadgets, computers and laptops, in an attempt to impress the fairer sex."

UGH as a veteran of customer-facing IT i have to agree, but make it more like 70%

But that sort of defeats the TLC and time I put into the letter. Besides, if I was gonna cheat, I'd cheat all out and use an auto-pen warning, auto-play video, which I guess is sort of expected from an auto-pen
But I sort of like the time it takes, because I get to sit there and think of my girlfriend the whole time =D ♥ <3

You mean those guys who have near-buzzcut hair, who wear ball caps and slogan t-shirts all the time? Those guys? They're the human equivalent of those houses in a subdivision that looks just like each other; They all look the same, and they're all just as prefabricated and uninteresting as the next one, and they all have tiny driveways, if you know what I mean.

/Those guys wear ball caps because they know someday they'll have to hide a bald spot. It's preparation.
//That, and it's a freakin' lame uniform to them. They can't be seen without it. The other guys will laugh.
///Put that on your funny t-shirt.
