I walked into a coffee shop here in Vancouver, and there were four identical guys behind the counter, all scruffy, all in plaid, all with skinny jeans, all with square framed glasses.  Hooray for individuality.

Of the 20 men she dated on OkCupid this year, only one was passable. Often she can ferret out the hopeless by their subject lines alone.

Pfft. I was being ignored by women and sitting alone when it meant something, using rare Peruvian oils and a monkey's paw to bitterly masturbate to vintage stereopticon and scrimshawed erotic Oliver Twist fan fiction -- I'm sure you've never heard of it.

Cause men just LOVE to have their balls busted by women with attitude
and living with them is so much easier...

Any news on which area has the least pickiest women???

Yep, call me a wussy...that's fine.  Proves the point.
But I want someone who wants me just as much, without having to go through some obstacle course.

There are so many available girls in NYC and more show up every year. By the time a girl turns 30, if she hasn't hooked up with some monied fellow who will buy the house in Westchester and let her fill it with kids, she's competing with the 22 year old intern with flawless skin, perfect breasts and wide eyes. Scares the shiat out of them.

There are quite a few career women though, who could care less, and will simply fark your brains out because they feel like it.
 
2013-11-03 01:32:14 PM
Brooklyn women may indeed be picky, and Brooklyn may have a glut of hipster men. But the article didn't use a single example of that, other than claiming Brooklyn women were pickiest by evidence of a questionnaire (with no example questions provided etc).

Everything was about how some men answer online dating personal ads. And those... those responses are everywhere. So the article in essence said nothing in a lot of words.

Piffle. At least it has the virtue of being both honest and unambiguous.

FTA "Brooklyn men don't have enough confidence to just come up to you and ask you on a date"

Women should just ask guys out.  Guys have a lot fewer initial dating requirements (attractive? let's roll) so it would make more sense for women to just go through their finicky checklists and initiate when they're ready.

Well even if that were the system, let's not overlook that once they initiate the encounter the next phase is painstaking questioning and appraisal to determine where the prospective male falls short and to what degree. This phase may also include observing and measuring his acceptable qualities, but the degree to which pros/cons are weighted is highly variable.

This is in preparation for the potential long-term relationship phase in which she laments the short-comings she missed, her underestimation of already observed flaws (as she sees them), and her inability to remould him into her ideal configuration. This phase requires frequent vocal analysis in the presence of said male subject.

I'm sorry, I was unaware that wanting to be treated like a human being and not a vagina with legs constituted "playing mind games." Being nice and being clear with your intentions are not mutually exclusive. I hope you don't have daughters or sisters or a mother.

Sure this does happen, but men do this to women too, and lesbians to this to other lesbians they date and gay men do this to gay men they date. Its sorta how things happen. People go into relationships based on the potential they sense and that may or may not pan out into actuality. Because everyone is just stumbling through based on conjecture and past unresolved issues until they build some actual interpersonal history with a partner(s). That's why I'm pretty upfront about the double anal-fisting thing.

I'm a guy living in East Tennessee.  One of the things that makes it livable is the fact that a lot of women seem to have this midlife crisis when the smoke clears and they realize that the guy they settled down with is just fine drinking a 6 pack in the evening and watching Duck Dynasty and working on their truck out back.  There's absolutely nothing wrong with that in my mind, but a lot of women that seem to show up around here are absolutely mortified by the idea.  So they reach out and try to find some intellectual stimulation, and if you have enough culture to have eaten at an ethnic restaurant more obscure than a Taco Bell, they'll give you a chance.  They don't want to leave their family, but want some kind of outside stimulation.  Expect to walk out of the bedroom battered and bruised from the waist down because they never made any sexual demands (or even asked to be actually satisfied) before, but damn sure aren't going to let you pass them by and not give them what they want.
 
2013-11-03 02:36:19 PM
On one date, the guy paid for a $2 slice of pizza with pocket change and then asked her to cough up 50 cents to cover the balance.

What a loser.  What low self esteem.  C'mon man, go for a high end restaurant and slip out the back door when the check comes.
