Title: I went on a date..
Post by: Belgoikiss on April 05, 2008, 04:30:51 PM
with Chuck Norris' first cousin.

See, I am now realizing that most men are scum they think you want their dick if you say 'Hey, let's hang out and grab a drink some time.'

I didn't ask for a fucking date.

I said let's hang out some time.

He thought it was a date. ~_~

I didn't say, "Hey, guy my dad's age, would you please rock the cradle of love?"
For fucks sake, dudes, if you're 48 and a 25 year old chick wants to hang out, unless you're a multi-millionaire and famous, not a lame fuck working a minimum wage job, she doesn't wanna bang you.

On the up side, I got to express my hate for Chuck Norris to someone that could actually tell him for me. That's still not getting him sex.

Eh... if a girl asked me to hang out and have a drink some time, just the two of us, that sounds like a date to me.  Does that make me scum too?   :-\

Though, I probably wouldn't accept if she was ~20 years younger than me.

...

Especially because that would mean she was 6.

Perfect age, man. It'll only take one drink, maybe two tops.

I gotta admit, if a good looking girl said "Hey lets hang out sometime" and nobody was with us, I'd think it was a date. Everyone -says- age doesn't matter in love, so where are all those people in THESE situations?


Also. Mood. Simply amazing.

Very grey area. You ask a friend to hang out and get a drink it means one thing...if you don't know another person that well and you ask them to hang out and get a drink, can be interpreted as lets bump it.
Title: Re: I went on a date..
Post by: RogueGunslinger on April 05, 2008, 05:40:03 PM
I'm definitely going to have to agree with most of the others here. If a girl I hardly know asks me to go have a drink with them, I'm probably going to think it's a date of some sort. If it's a friend of mine... Then it's just hanging out and having a drink.


Edited to add: That is not to say I'd treat it exactly like a date, because this is a sort of grey area. I'm not going to pull out all the dating game. I'd just go expecting to have a drink with a cute girl... And hope she gets totally plastered and finds me charming. ;)

Yeah the asking for the drink most guys would look at it as a date invitation if they don't really know her.

Post by: Gimfalisette on April 05, 2008, 08:44:04 PM
Well, if I'm going on a date, I damn sure expect sex. Also I expect recreational fun (could take varying forms), a good meal, and probably a mocha, all paid for by him, unless I've said up front I'm paying for some part of it. And good, interesting conversation is essential. And an upbeat attitude and good sense of humor. Also, my date should be polite and do things like open doors for me, compliment me, and generally be a gentleman.

I'm really, really ultra-picky about who I date, though: My husband.

I don't think I'd personally be offended if some guy I was hanging out with / went out with / whatever thought it was a "date date" and I didn't. Who cares if he expects or wants sex? That doesn't mean it's going to happen. Dating is not a sex vending machine.

No, I went to Riprocks, and, I am totally sheltered I guess. Or maybe just because I'm a chick, when someone asks me to 'hang out' I don't take it as 'DATE' If I asked him to a dinner and movie, dressed up and didn't... bah fuck it. I'm just retarded, and got suckered into a date with Chuck's cousin. This still angers me greatly. I hate being a blonde sometimes. And you people quit calling me Julie :PI don't know who the fuck Julie is.

I've found myself missing that stuff with non-male PCs, but I figured it was because of my own non-femaleness.

Post by: FiveDisgruntledMonkeysWit on April 05, 2008, 10:56:36 PM
In my experience, people stop using terms like "date" or "going out" or "do you like me?" around the age of 15 or so. Which is too bad, really, because those were awfully convenient terms, and they helped to avoid situations like this.

Most grown-up type people, though, use euphamisms like "go get a cup of coffee" or "go get a drink." This guy clearly mistook "drinks" as a euphamism for "date." Which, really is not all that unreasonable.

Of course, drinks does not equal a date, and a date does not equal sex, but it's an entirely unreasonable conclusion to make. Especially with a little wishful thinking thrown in for good measure.

I fail to see where the outrage is coming from. There really are worse things than somebody being sexually attracted to you, you know. Like, for example, nobody being sexually attracted to you.

I'd rather have to rebuff the occassional unwanted advance, or laugh off the occassional misunderstanding, than deal with the latter. Count your blessings.

Post by: jstorrie on April 05, 2008, 11:13:56 PM
Yeah, I'm with 5DM here. 'Let's go for drinks' is an acceptable and common way of saying 'let's go out.' So someone likes you, boo-hoo.

Post by: psionic fungus on April 05, 2008, 11:16:34 PM
I have to say that I have hooked up with the majority of my GF's through them asking me to come over or go out for drinks.

It's apparently a very common way for a girl to let a guy know she's interested.


Oops.  ::)

Maybe the euphemisms are used because of their ambiguity.  If the person turns out to Not Like You That Way, you can always pretend that it was just a friendly gesture.

Your topic says that you went on a date, though.. Were you being sarcastic or deep inside were you hoping that it was, indeed, a date, but after meeting the guy, you just didn't want anything to do with him?  ;)

I'm seeing all the points here, and no I'm -not- mad that someone is attracted to me, it just grossed me the fuck out that he happened to be actually a little older than my dad. As to my being too vague, I'll blame it on becoming socially retarded in my 4 1/2 year marriage. Things have changed since I was 20, from people I find interesting all the way to the way I flirt. I'm just not cut out for this stuff.

I started drinking before-hand at a friend's house.  He came back from IRAQ so we were celebrating his non-death.

I know Katherine was wanting to meet up with me at 'The Live Lounge', which is an Modern-Rock/Alternative Bar downtown.

I left the party I was at, at approximately 11 p.m. and made my way towards Downtown.

I went to 'The Mercury Lounge' at 11:30 and got a free shot from my favourite bartender, and then left.

I arrive at 'The Live Lounge' and spotted my friend Katherine.  I got a beer and then moved over to her, so she would spot me and say hey.

She spots me and says Hey.

We dance until 1:30 to alternative rock songs.

She was at the club with her, 'Engineers without Borders' friends, who went to the club as an after-party for some event they hosted tonight.

At 1:30 two friends of hers - who happen to live by her apartment - decided to leave and walk home.  I decided to come with.

One friend left, and then there was three.

It was her turn to take the side street to go home, and I was really drunk, so I just gave her a hung and said "hey next time yeah!"

Her other friend and I walked home a few blocks - talking about fair trade and ad-busters shoes, and then said goodbye and then I continued walking.

I sent her a txt message saying, 'oh man we shoudl watch a movie even though it's 2:30" with the spelling mistake too.

She replied, 'Why didn't you say so before hand?  I'm almost in my pjs."

I replied with, 'It would have been very awkward with David walking along.  I'm very awkward like that"

She replied, 'Well, next time we need to have a signal for that sort of thing.'


...

we're still 'chatting' over txt message currently.  I'll let you know if I convince her to come over.

Post by: RogueGunslinger on April 06, 2008, 04:04:00 AM
Don't do it. My professional advice is to leave her wanting something for a second date. You try too hard now and you might just spoil the whole thing. The more time you talk after the first date just gives you more chances to fuck things up. Keep things cool, 'cause you're cool. Leave her a couple tid-bits that will make her curious about you then call her in a day or so. She'll remember that she had unanswered questions about you and accept a second date.

The above is a tried and tested formula. Hasn't failed me yet.


Edit: I just realized I'm way too late. :( Maybe someone else will use this advice.

That seems like a lot of drinking to be doing on a date, mansa. I mean...isn't dating about getting to know the person? But if you're so drunk, I don't see that really happening very effectively. YMMV, though.

Please lead on more men twice your age. It does great things for your demographic. I mean, seriously? C’mon. You asked him to hang out and grab a drink? He is older than your dad? I mean why in the world would he possibly think you just wanted to hang out and be friends? What do you have in common with him? What are you going to talk about with him? Why Steve Perry truly left Journey?

In the future if you just want to be friends with someone of the opposite sex, and not lead them on. Try asking them if they want to go grab a cup of coffee or something. Establish the fact that the relationship is strictly plutonic and you’ve no interest in anything past that level of intimacy.

Thanks for the man bashing posts though. It seems to me that the way your love life is going, you should move to Eastern Europe and quit shaving your legs and arm pits. Maybe start an all female band? Who knows, the possibilities are endless.

Maybe I'm beyond the 'drinks mean i want you bad' And pardon me very much for being a man bashing hairy bitch for hoping that someone could hang out without pretense.

Huh. Sounds like an Okay guy to me.

In any case, I think Matt was trying to express how you described this guy as your average 40+ man, and you were sitting there bashing him on an internet forum to a bunch of people you don't even know. Seems kind of petty when you really think of it. Then you took it further and used him as an example of why most men are scum and we're all horny freaks, yada, yada,yada.

In any case we don't know what happened on your 'date', and therefore have little to no information on why he seemed to enrage you so much. It leaves us with no good reason to even discuss this. He could have tried to stick a carrot up your nose, or been a real douche bag or something.

P.S. I think BlackMagic0 and CyberPatrol735 are hilarious. Leave Britney alone!



Edit: I'll personally breathe heavily on every damn flake I see Bardbard#4! Get to work people, we got a lot of snow to melt, and only eight days to do it!

You know rogue, you're right, I didn't have the right to call most men scum. It's just that ever since I told my friends (I had a lot of friends) that I was getting a divorce, 9 out of 10 of (what i thought were) my male friends thought it was open season. Yes, I -am- jaded over it, and yes, I went overboard, thanks for showing me.

Once again I am reminded though, that I should never complain or be too happy about anything on any forum,  because somehow, happy or sad news, it always gets bashed. Sorry for sharing what I thought an amusing story, if uncomfortable to me, and turning into yet another frag fest on the ooc.


And yes, Black, that song is fucking awesome.

Also, we all go overboard some times.. It happens. So there is no reason for us to go on with this topic. All it is bringing up is flames and people becoming pissed over typed words. Every one.. Take a deep breath.. And CALM THE FUCK DOWN! Thank you.  ::)

The results help to tease out the underlying causes of guys' flirt-or-not mistakes. One common explanation for reports of men taking a friendly gesture as "she wants me," is based on men's inherent interest in sex, which is thought to result from their biology as well as their upbringing.

Following this idea, men and women would be aware of the same behavioral cues, but men would have a lower threshold for what qualifies as sexual interest. In contrast, women would wait for compelling evidence before labeling a behavior as sexual interest.

However, Farris and her colleagues didn't find this to be the case. Rather than seeing the world through sex-colored glasses, men seemed just to have blurry vision of sorts, overall. For instance, the college guys sometimes mistook sexual advances as pal-like gestures.

 I am a male. Any friend I have that is female is a chick that I would bang if given the chance. Females think they can have male friends that arent gay and be " just friends". This works well for us. Any other males find that they would also bang out all of their female friends if the chance came about?

Guy got the wrong idea, happens all the time.  Doesn't necessarily make him scum, just misguided and/or clueless.  I understand your frustration though, because it can definitely be annoying.

My own personal story: Years ago I met this guy through some friends at the club I hung out at (and later worked at).  He invited me to go grab dinner with him one night, and I agreed.  While we were there, he kept wanting to hold my hand, which made me a little uneasy.  Despite the fact that he knew that I was in a relationship with someone and had been for years (and I made that very clear to him), he seemed to have the idea in his head that it was a date.  And I later found out that he'd given some of his friends the idea that it was.

I won't even get started on all the other incidents, especially while working at the nightclub, of people thinking that just because I talked to them that I was interested in some way other than just friendship or even just being polite.

You know rogue, you're right, I didn't have the right to call most men scum. It's just that ever since I told my friends (I had a lot of friends) that I was getting a divorce, 9 out of 10 of (what i thought were) my male friends thought it was open season. Yes, I -am- jaded over it, and yes, I went overboard, thanks for showing me.

Once again I am reminded though, that I should never complain or be too happy about anything on any forum,  because somehow, happy or sad news, it always gets bashed. Sorry for sharing what I thought an amusing story, if uncomfortable to me, and turning into yet another frag fest on the ooc.


And yes, Black, that song is fucking awesome.

Either way, you got a divorce and you are free. Two Thumbs up. Freedom. All this water and not a drop to drink.

Funny story...

Katherine borrows her roommates car and picks me up.  We go to the independant theater to go check out a movie.  Kat also invited some other friends to show up.  It ends up being a double-date type thing.

The movie:  Funny Games.

..Little did I know what sort of movie it would be.  I was totally not in the mood to watch that sort of movie.  I turned to Kat and said, 'I'm sorry, but I'm not enjoying this movie at all.  In fact, I don't think I can handle it.'

"I think I'm going to leave," says I.  "I'm sorry, really, but I can't stand to watch this.  I'm going to leave.  I'll be in the lobby for a bit."

And I left my date in the movie theater with her two friends.

I sent her a txt message saying that I went to a local coffee shop to clear my mind.  I said that I was going to wait for them to come out of the theater and we should do something after.

I actually had a coffee, and then decided to wander a bit downtown.

...

I notice my friend Josh sitting with a girl at a table in a bar.  I wave to Josh, and invite myself in, and pull up a chair to their small table.  I totally interrupted their date.  I explained that I just left my date at the movie theater and they said, "Oh, that you.  Such Class! Smooth like a baby's bottom!"

I ordered a drink for myself and introduced myself to Josh's date, and we started to talk about how we knew each other.

My date finishes up with her friends at the movie, and gives me a ring.  I invite her over to the bar, and let everybody meet each other.  Then Kat says to me, "I'm sorry I picked a terrible movie!  I'm sorry!  psst we should leave here because they are on a date."

...  Not getting the hint that Josh was on a date, Kat convinces me that we should go.  So we leave Josh on his date and go to her car.

We go to my house and watch two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation with my roommate and his girlfriend on this two-seater couch.  It was very squishy.

Then, I said that it's late, and she said, 'Yeah, I should get going home."

I reply with, "Next time we'll do something even more awesome."

"What's more awesome than walking out of a movie theater?", and I snickered and gave her a hug and she left with a smile.

Reminds me of that film, revolving doors or sliding doors (forgot its name). In any case a woman in that film yells at her boyfriend and says something along the lines of: of course you aren't supposed to know what I want, I'm a woman! We're mysterious like that!

More often than not reading anything into anything is useless. Women (and men) will use their sex appeal to manipulate people. My rule of thumb has always been that if someone is interested me in they should just make their move. I do the same. Who gets their feelings hurt from having someone come onto them in a polite way?

I think it's been about five or so months for me. Strangely it's been since I started playing Arm. Do I miss it? Not at all.

Does anyone else plan on asking Mansa if he even likes this girl? If he actually even plans on having sex with her? For some reason I get this feeling that Mansa is just enjoying having a good time and hasn't decided on where he wants to take it.

Well Mansa? Spew it.

 I -so- dislike this rule. I think it should happen when the moment feels right. Be it in the first, third, fifth, of fifteenth date. If things are moving quickly, why not go quicker? Same if things are moving more slowly. I, personally like to get to know the person fairly well, but, at the same time, I open up pretty slowly. I think the timing isn't always gonna necessarily be the third date. meh, that's just me.

I totally agree with you and Beligo on this.  After coming out of a three year relationship all comfort has gone out teh window.

Now I'm totally enjoying my independance but dating is so damn awkward.

Is it just me or are standards totally loose nowadays?  Like it's really taboo to have a "boyfriend", you're just supposed to be friends and let this wavering ambigous possibility of exclusivity waft about you.  In my current um two week reoccuring dating companion guy that I am seeing, we have said everything but we are exclusive.  Like when we discuss the opposite sex we both make it clear that we have no intention of kanking other people.  And I don't want to be the one clarify it for fear of being "possessive."  Good thing I'm a Tuluki fan girl.  Thank you Vanth, Euke and Sanvean for providing a city with a 101 on subtly.  ;)  Dating ftl.

Good date movie. Mansa? Take notes.

Dating does suck. I think we can agree on that, regardless of gender and orientation. I had my first real "date" a few months ago- you know, the "we're interviewing each other for relationship potential and possibly sex" type date. It went well, and I ended up dating the woman for about a month, but it just didn't feel right, and I got out of it. It was too cynical and grown-up and guarded. I remember the exact moment I decided I was going to break up with her. It was like our fourth date, and I started talkng about my sister. And she suddenly stops me and says, "Hey, that's kind of personal, don't you think? I'm not sure I'm ready to talk about stuff like that."
My response? "You do realize we're both naked right now, right?"

Flash forward a couple months, and I've reconnected with a girl from high school. She's sweet and wickedly funny and way, way smarter than me. And I was just kind of enjoying the early-dating infatuation. I'm going to see her over the summer, and maybe things will become quasi-official. I can hardly wait.

I forget what my point was. Just commiserating, I guess. Oh, and I guess a date is only as good as the person you're with.

I say just go along with what you feel comfortable, following a strict order of 'first date=making out', 'second date=heavy petting', 'third date=sex'. Is really kind of mechanic and unoriginal. If you wanna 'hook her', you got to be original and blow her away with why she should be dating your sorry ass instead of some other exactly the same sob.

Post by: Zoltan on April 07, 2008, 05:09:34 PM
I'd give her an eight. Cute girl, Mansa!

Anyway, I never really "dated" much. Most women I've been with have been -very- straight forward with me. The first date-like thing always ended up being the first sex/freak-fest kind of thing. In fact, I hadn't been on a real date with my current girlfriend (who I'm happily engaged to) till after a year or so of being together!

I'll never forget how we first got together: I was fucking -drunk- on cheap vodka on a Sunday afternoon. For some reason, she was sitting with me in my room as I rambled on about conquest theory, martial arts, metal music, books I've read... Just the works. Had to've been a real boring conversation. I eventually found out she was a virgin, so of course I said, with a straight face "I'll teach you about sex, if you want." To which she replied "Not right now. You're really drunk." A couple days or so later, we hooked up and it's been an absolutely great couple of years!

Anyway, time to get to a point or something here... Though I'm completely happy with my woman, I can't help but feel a little envious of those that get to cast themselves out, experiencing so many more first times with different people. Then again, I'm thankful I've saved a fortune on shitty movies and over-priced food.  :P

I don't think it is right to post a photo of anyone in such an intimate pose unless it is you and your own photo. Even then I would never want to see without a warning.

Sorry if that came out as mean. I am actually aghast that someone would do that.

Uh, Hispanics just say Jesús. Hey Zeus is the phonetical.

I bet you didn't once think that she gave him permission to post her pictures, did you? I bet you didn't know that a very large amount of people think of their bodies as something beautiful, and something that can be shared with the world. But no. You in your own selfish ignorance just have to go shit on everyones parade. Well you know what rachel. I think you're a very small person and un-accepting of other peoples way.

The slang term that Hispanics use when they mean Jesus.

So I gotta put up with "Hey Zeus" as my nickname to a few friends... 
Or IAmJacksOpinion.. Its funnier at least. <-- This one actually has nothing to do with my hair.. Has to do with being a Native. So.. guess that one is void in this conversation.

Strange you say that... Because every seven on the looks scale that I've dated acted just as you described a seven on the Enneagram scale. Creepy.

When you find consistent patterns in the data, and the one constant is you, you might want to look at you as the cause of the pattern ;)

I went to a flower shop and picked up a potted cactus.  It was the only one there, and it looks like a wobbly three fingers.

I visited her place of work and delivered the cactus, which she make some eyes and a mouth and taped it to the cactus, so it looks like a dude with two wobbly hands.

We chilled there, then we left.  We stopped in the movie store, and I rented, "Transmorphers", which I heard is a pretty good movie with lots of robots transmorphing into cars and other things.

We got some coffee and talked about Karaoke songs and which ones are the best, and then talked about ipod battles and how to win.

Then we went to her house, talked with her roommates as they came home from school, and then her friend stopped by to pick her up and take her to indoor soccer.

I left her house and walked home, and now I'm going to enjoy the movie.

ALONE.

I've known of  Bry's secret maleness forEVAR. :)

There is only one true Bond. And no it wasn't Roger Moore. Though I was sort of pleasantly surprised by the rugged maleness in Casino Royale: he was hawter than I would have thought.

Frighteningly, when my husband grew a beard for two brief months over the winter, he looked like Chuck Norris. So when I would ask him what he wanted to do about something, he'd stroke his chin, then say.... "360 degree roundhouse kick to the face."


Also, I cannot help forever associating anime with teeny bopper girls and asexual young men.

Pulling out the definitions (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/lady) I think are potentially most applicable...

Quote
1. a woman who is refined, polite, and well-spoken
2. a woman of high social position or economic class
3. any woman; female
...
5. wife
6. Slang. a female lover or steady companion
...
8. a woman who has proprietary rights or authority, as over a manor; female feudal superior
...
10. a woman who is the object of chivalrous devotion
11. (usually initial capital letter) a. an attribute or abstraction personified as a woman; a designation of an allegorical figure as feminine: Lady Fortune; Lady Virtue. 
b. a title prefixed to the name of a goddess: Lady Venus.
12. Sometimes Offensive. being a lady; female: a lady reporter. 
13. of a lady; ladylike; feminine.

While #s 1, 8, and 10 certainly have their appeal, I think I'll pick #11 and be hereafter known as "Lady Mirth."

I do, however, think that Sean Connery IS Bond.

I must be the only person in the world who likes the new Bond. *Gasp* He can act!

No, I like the new Bond too. I like him much more than Pierce Brosnan, in fact.

I do, however, think that Sean Connery IS Bond.

Yes, you are right. And he is still hot... probably the hottest old man alive... especially with the spanking comments. Rawr.

How'd we get on this from Belgoi's date? Anyway, yeah. New Bond revitalized that series just like the new Batman. Both of those guys rock.

Did Connery talk about spanking or was it "Shomtimes having to shlap a woman"?

I am not going on a date, but my ex-girlfriend is coming up for five days and staying in my bed apartment.  I told her she can stay with me, and we have agreed upon the price of "many sexual favors" for her stay.  After a few months of non-consensual celibacy, I am pumped.  My only terror is that it is going to end in her trying to move back to Boston and babbling about getting back together... she calls me way too often for people who are not dating and babbles about how much she misses me.

Oh, man, I really hope that isn't the only reason you quit!
But, seriously, you should have frickin' married this guy, and then spawned a litter of young 'uns with him. Then, once the kids hit puberty, you could sneak in at night, shave off their Chuck Norris-descended beards, glue the hairs to your chin in one massive uber-beard, and ASCENDED TO GODHOOD.
You had a shot at immortality, there, but you blew it. Way to go.

If you're serious about not wanting to get back together with this woman, Rindan, DO NOT FUCK HER. Unlike my response to Belgoikiss, this is serious advice.
Celibacy is an excellent motivator for going out there and finding somebody you actually like and want to fuck. If you start banging your ex on a regular basis, or even a quasi-regular basis, it will be hard to screw up the courage to get out there and find somebody you actually like. Also, if she really wants to get back together with you, dangling that possibility in front of her in exchange for sex is simply a shitty, shitty, shitty thing to do.
If you're interested in getting back together with her, though, and you're just acting disinterested to sound macho, then go ahead. There's no rule saying you can't get back together with an ex. Even random hook-ups with an ex are permissable, provided that you make it clear from the get-go that this is only a reunion for your genitalia, not your lives.

I'm going to have to go against the grain (because I'm an asshole like that, and enjoy the conflict) and say have all the sex you want with her, then send her on her way. She's obviously naive and could use the lesson. Do your part in making her life better. Be a teacher, and a leader. Do the right thing for the sake of her future.

The right thing to do is not have sex with her. Not even kissing her. Although us men are fools. We think with our dicks. If it has been that long for you, it's even harder (no pun intended).

Get it into your head that you should will not do it.

Be strong about it. Ride someone else nice before she gets there.

Just keep in mind that most men are able to view sex as just sex, while most women cannot separate sex from  love.

You sleeping with her is quite possibly tantamount to you telling her that you love her and want her back. There is nothing wrong with taking sexual favors for free rent, just make sure you tell her (be blunt, it's necessary) that that is ALL it is. Otherwise she will find all sorts of emotional justifications for it.

And it shouldn't matter what day she dumped him, there's really never any excuse for cruelty.

Oh come on.  We don't know the whole story.  He said they broke up on Valentine's Day or the day before Valentine's Day or something.

That's better than dragging it out through Valentine's Day.

They were together for years.

If you still love her maybe you should go for it?  We don't know the whole story but please have some balls and don't fuck her if you don't have any intentions of an emotional connection.  Your head maybe on the sex, but trust me - she sees this as you guys getting back together.

The difference in male and female opinions is hilarious. The question is why did she break up with you, did you want to stay together, did you deserve to be broken up with, did she do something she wanted to break up for? Do you still love her, do you think that it could work out, ignoring the macho shit on the GDB?

If you think deep down you'd be happier with her..then do it.

If you feel like a shag, let her know it's just that, and be clear about that.

Although we love to be all hardy about shite like this, the fairer sex are normally right about it.

Bitches.

If you want to fuck her then fuck her, at least be straight up with her about what it is though. Not likely she'll listen though, if she's interested in getting back together she'll probably harbor the hope that it will turn into more. At least if you're straight with her about it and she tells you she accepts that, then you've covered your ass and done nothing wrong.

Me and mine went on a date last Friday night.

We sang kareoke(Something like that.) songs from Tenacious D, and some Moulin Rouge.
We sang the Elephant Love Medley from Moulin Rouge.
From Tenacious D, we did some Inner Singing, Kickapoo, Classico, Wonderboy, Tribute, Double Team, Dio, Master Exploder, and couple other ones.

Upon completion of that, we headed to the Theatres, but arrived 40 minutes too soon. Instead of sitting in a dark room with a bunch of oldbies, we (I dragged her) headed over to a running/biking store and talked to the owner/coowners about what their plans for the store are, and they actually open up next week. Awesome.

We were enroute back to the Theatre when she decided to "bump" me. I went screaming into oncoming traffic. After a brief bout with death, we went to the movie. We didn't really enjoy the movie, but we did make out and have sex after.

What could I have done/not done better?

Although us men are fools. We think with our dicks.

Quote from: Kiri
Just keep in mind that most men are able to view sex as just sex, while most women cannot separate sex from  love.

Most people who hold views such as those above more than likely see sex as, "sealing the deal," i.e. guaranteeing a lasting commitment.  However, think about what goes into convincing someone to have sex, and you'll see that such a concept is more closely related to societal influence rather than realistic environmental factors.

What does this mean?  It means that the average man, the average person, will typically see sex as a matter of mutual service.  In order to guarantee a long term commitment, more is required.  The best way to find out what that is?  The only idea that comes to my mind is communication.

However, if I may touch on Rindan's situation, it's going to get worse before it gets better.  You take her in, you have sex, and two things will happen immediately.  One, you'll blow her off and have her nagging at you in one way or another for either more favors or attempts at starting a relationship.    Two, you actually will start a relationship with her once again.  This is where things get really bad.  If it is an attempt at a serious relationship, you'll have to deal with the reason she dumped you in the first place, which might get ugly.  If it is not a serious relationship, you'll probably end up as an on-and-off sex partner, the downside of which is wholly dependent on whether you want a serious relationship.  If so, having your old girlfriend hanging about is going to complicate things seriously in the search for another woman.   So yeah, if you don't want drama, don't sex her up.

If you take her in and don't have sex, she leaves and then she's out of your life.  You won't have sex, but you'll be free and clear while you look for another woman, if you choose to do so at all.  Notice how beautifully short and simple this paragraph is.  Not that I wholly endorse this option, being just the sort of bastard to throw himself into a fight.

So you can either be fucked in not getting fucked, or you can get really fucked until all the problems are worked out.
Title: Re: I went on a date..
Post by: Rindan on April 09, 2008, 04:56:01 PM
The basic story is this:

Dated for 4.5 years.  Lived together for 3.  Started dating sophomore year of college.  After college, I moved blindly to Chicago with her despite not having a job (though I did have a hefty savings) so she could attend a masters program at the University of Chicago.  As it turns out, Chicago sucks ass for chemical engineers unless you get your rocks off doing 2 hour commutes.  So, I got a crappy soulless temp job while she did her year long masters program.  At the end of the year, her mom gets cancer.  She heads back home to take care of her mom, and I head back to Boston to snag a job that pays money and doesn't make me want to blow my brains out.  For about six months we do a long distance relationship with me driving down roughly every 2-3 weeks to Ithaca, NY, six hours away, on the weekends.  I also suffer 1-2 hours worth of phone conversation each night which generally just breaks down in her narrating what she is doing and telling me how much she misses me.  Any attempt to exit said phone conversation makes her pissed/sad.

Six months later, her mom is all done with her treatment and is cancer free.  We make plans to snag a place in Boston together.  One week before when she is supposed to move into the room I had so that we could find a place together, she calls me and says that she isn't coming and thinks maybe we should breakup.  I am kind of like "WTF?"  She says something about how she is worthless around me and just wants to snuggle instead of doing things like reading books, getting out with friends, etc.  I point out that I desperately try and shove her ass out the doorway all the time so I can be left alone with a video game for an hour or two and that I have never ever tried to keep her from going out with friends (especially if it is without me) because I always desperately want a little time to myself, which I rarely get.  I also point out that I read like an animal, generally have to pry her off of me to get a half hour of reading in, and that I would be tickled to death if she actually read something so we have something intellectual to talk about.  She says it isn't me, it is just how she gets with me, we should break up.  Ok.  We hang up to think.  I am upset, feel sick, and my feelings could best be summed up in some sad-sack of shit emo song.

Two days later, the day before V day, I call her after working up a little self righteous anger.  I tell her that I can't fix her level of crazy.  If she is a lazy bum around me despite the fact that I try and get her to be otherwise, there is not much more I can do.  She agrees, and tells me that it is more than that.  What else I ask?  Well she says, I'm an ass hole (once a year ago I got drunk at her friends house) who objectifies her (read that as, "I like sex" and find her hot).  Fair enough, better an occasional ass hole than being psychotic bi-polar bitch who tries to tear the heads off living animals (most often me) when she gets hungry.  We hang up pissed and officially broken up (I knew it was really over when Facebook confirmed the conversation).  Happy fucking-Valentines day are the last words out of my mouth (it had actually just turned midnight).

V-day comes and I start to feel better as the day wears on.  The next day I am down right happy euphoric and start reconnecting with old friends.  Before drinking myself into a merry oblivion with some friends (and it really was merry, none of that sulking drinking yourself to tears crap.  This was a ska level of merry) I call her up and tell her I am sorry for getting pissed, want to be friends, and that I am okay with being broken up.  We end the conversation well and declare each other friends with no grudges.  I am pretty sure we both mean it.

From this point on she calls me a couple of times a week and we make great conversation.  I learn that being single kicks ass.  Instead of listening to silence on the phone for 2 hours and her getting pissed when I mention that maybe I should hang up now, I just tell her I am going now when the conversation dwindles and she accepts it without sulking.  I go for walks, play video games, hike, and in general make my own hours.  It is liberating.  I reconnect with more friends that I knew I had.  I get an extremely kick ass apartment in Davis Square (a very cool area in the greater Boston area) with 4 international students as roommates.  All is well... well... minus the lack of sex.  She also seems to be doing well, hanging out with friends, meeting guys, and getting her own apartment while she finishes up her thesis.  We both seem happy.  We are both good friends and on excellent terms with each other.  All is well.

Now, she is coming from Ithaca, NY to Boston for a wedding.  She laments that she has had nothing but bad sex since we broke up, and I have had none.  Stay at my place and let's shag I say.  She agrees.  As it gets closer to merry old 'shagging the ex-day', her phone calls start coming in more frequently and she starts babbling about the things she misses about me.  She tells me that all other guys are ass holes and how she cried after having sex with one (eh, why are you sharing this with me?).  My dreams of some rocking just-for-the-fun-of-it-sex with a good friend start to fade.  She calls more often and talks more about what she misses about me.  I start to get the horrible feeling that a good shag too many might lead to her moving back to Boston, even though she is talking about going to California for her PhD.  Am I being paranoid?  Can't we just have nice no strings attached sex?  Hell, I'll toss in a cuddle at the end of it, I just have this horrible nightmare that the sex ends in (her) tears and babbling about how much she misses me. 

I really do not want to get back together.  Hell will freeze over first.  Good friends?  Awesome.  I love her to death as a close friend.  A life long commitment to the levels of crazy that I put up with in my attempts to reenact The Passion (i.e. dating her)?  Fuck that.  I need a sane woman... and if not a sane one, than at least one with some sort of intellectual curiosity in the world outside of me.  I feel a little trapped though.  Biology is obviously very much against me, but more than that, there is no nice way of telling her to screw off because I am worried that she will go nuts if she spends time around  me.  Eh... what is a guy to do?

V-day comes and I start to feel better as the day wears on.  The next day I am down right happy euphoric and start reconnecting with old friends.  Before drinking myself into a merry oblivion with some friends (and it really was merry, none of that sulking drinking yourself to tears crap.  This was a ska level of merry) I call her up and tell her I am sorry for getting pissed, want to be friends, and that I am okay with being broken up.  We end the conversation well and declare each other friends with no grudges.  I am pretty sure we both mean it.

From this point on she calls me a couple of times a week and we make great conversation.  I learn that being single kicks ass.  Instead of listening to silence on the phone for 2 hours and her getting pissed when I mention that maybe I should hang up now, I just tell her I am going now when the conversation dwindles and she accepts it without sulking.  I go for walks, play video games, hike, and in general make my own hours.  It is liberating.  I reconnect with more friends that I knew I had.  I get an extremely kick ass apartment in Davis Square (a very cool area in the greater Boston area) with 4 international students as roommates.  All is well... well... minus the lack of sex.  She also seems to be doing well, hanging out with friends, meeting guys, and getting her own apartment while she finishes up her thesis.  We both seem happy.  We are both good friends and on excellent terms with each other.  All is well.

Now, she is coming from Ithaca, NY to Boston for a wedding.  She laments that she has had nothing but bad sex since we broke up, and I have had none.  Stay at my place and let's shag I say.  She agrees.  As it gets closer to merry old 'shagging the ex-day', her phone calls start coming in more frequently and she starts babbling about the things she misses about me.  She tells me that all other guys are ass holes and how she cried after having sex with one (eh, why are you sharing this with me?).  My dreams of some rocking just-for-the-fun-of-it-sex with a good friend start to fade.  She calls more often and talks more about what she misses about me.  I start to get the horrible feeling that a good shag too many might lead to her moving back to Boston, even though she is talking about going to California for her PhD.  Am I being paranoid?  Can't we just have nice no strings attached sex?  Hell, I'll toss in a cuddle at the end of it, I just have this horrible nightmare that the sex ends in (her) tears and babbling about how much she misses me. 

I really do not want to get back together.  Hell will freeze over first.  Good friends?  Awesome.  I love her to death as a close friend.  A life long commitment to the levels of crazy that I put up with in my attempts to reenact The Passion (i.e. dating her)?  Fuck that.  I need a sane woman... and if not a sane one, than at least one with some sort of intellectual curiosity in the world outside of me.  I feel a little trapped though.  Biology is obviously very much against me, but more than that, there is no nice way of telling her to screw off because I am worried that she will go nuts if she spends time around  me.  Eh... what is a guy to do?

Good friends do not fuck. If you roll in the sack, be prepared for baggage. Unless you mean to pay her. Which might give her the right message. Basically, you could completely ruin your relationship with her for another five months - five years by -really- satisfying your urges for sex for that day / night, and then not talking to her again - OR - if you really value your friendship, over an intimate relationship...Cut out sex, kissing, cuddling, sharing a bed, showering together, seeing each other naked, talking about sex, talking about how much you miss having sex with her, talking about other dudes bwning her, checking her breasts for cancer, or playing 'just the tip'.

I think you should move on, man. There's plenty of women out there who'll gladly ruin your life for another couple years.

EDIT: Manonfire is pretty spot on. But my advice is true. I swear I would never lead another man astray.

DOUBLE EDIT:

I also wanted to add that I believe you are something I like to refer to as "Satan's Wizard". Everyone is a "Satan's Wizard" in some respect, and are also practically slaves to other "Satan's Wizards". A "Satan's Wizard" is someone in your life, most likely a very attractive girl, who you end up, for some very mysterious reason, screwing around with for about a week. During this week long period, you end up falling in love with this 'wizard'. The 'wizard' ends up losing interest, however, or finds you not as attractive as initially supposed. She ends up breaking it off with you, and putting you in the friend zone. Most likely, you will become enraged and not speak with this 'wizard' for many months. However, "Satan's Wizards" are allowed, at any time during the rest of your life, to reappear and take their former conquest as a mate. Whenever they please. You will not be able to say no. They take advantage of the fact that you will roll over like a little puppy at the mention of their name, holding on to a small hope that they will finally, truly love you in all the ways you do unto them. They know this about you. They know you dote on them, and will do so, for all eternity, and will come back into your life at the worst time possible, again and again. There is a "Satan's Wizard" in all of us, and in our lives, we are increasingly surrounded by more and more "Satan's Wizards". Beware. Take caution. I believe you are this girl's Satan's Wizard, and are unaware of the sway you hold over her very existance.

I don't think so. With the right person(s) and in the right setting, there are few things as good as it. However, no amount of crazyfreakyawesomedirty sex is worth some of the emotional crap/baggage that some people put on themselves and others. Sex is a beautiful and powerful thing, built right into us by nature. It can be a form of expression, or an act of creation. It's supposed to be fun.

Some people can hurt the experience by putting too much into it. Others can hurt it by being too distant. There are myriad variables in every situation.

As far as Rindan's situation goes, I'm with manonfire: go with your gut, and stand by your decision.

If she's incapable of seeing a fuck as just a fuck, then don't do it. It sucks, but some girls can't wrap their heads around the idea of sex that doesn't include a serious commitment. The friends with benefits scenario is great, but it rarely lasts long. Usually the relationship progresses to the next stage, or things start getting awkward and complicated (especially if it's with an ex).

Well, do it.  Set the rules first and anything is possible.  You set the rules from the start already, she is coming for shag and stay.

You did say you hang up anytime and she does not sulk about it.  It is because it is pretty clear, that you do not have to give a shit about whether she gets pissed or upset when you want to hang up.  If you do not seem to bend over to her demands and stay on the side where you are happy, I think things will stay okay.

Vessol has true love for only one woman...

She looks innocent enough at first, but next thing you know, she has you in the palm of her hand. She can be wanton one minute, then dash all your dreams the next. She can be boring some nights, white unforgettably exciting the next.  Sometimes she can even make a man cry. This woman has many other lovers, but he doesn't care because she's...

Yes, because obviously sex fixes everything. Got money problems!? Get laid! Shit...unwanted pregancy...shit...STD.
Define how everything changes?
Honestly that statement is really redundant. Nothing changes when you have sex it's just an act to procreate and enjoy. And some just don't have sexual attractions, wished I didn't bring it up because you get arses who say it 'doesnt exist' or some other stupid similar stuff.
What? Your not homosexual? Go get laid by a man, changes everything.

And yes Ginka=love  :-*.

Agreeing with Vessol 100% here. And I have experience on my side that he doesn't. I've had sex. Nothing changes except that now you've had sex. Big whoopty-do there. When it happens for me it's just something that happens. I don't plan it. Things just sometimes lead there. I enjoy it. But it means nothing to me. I quite often prefer eating good food.

If I ever do? Doesn't really bother me when it happens or if, I am in no rush. Maybe I will meet a great girl and it will work will, but I am not really an optimist :P.
Having sex for the sake of sex seems kind of pointless though. If you absolutely need to get off, thats what a hand and the internet are for.

Also: Vessol. You will not meet a great girl (though you will think she is). It will not work well (though for a long time you will struggle to make it so). But by the third or fourth strik-out you'll find one that's different (she will still not be great, probably wont work out, but you'll force it and get married to a woman you don't love, eventually divorcing).

Don't worry though. Sex is great!

I personally think you should completely not sleep with her, because I've had pretty much the same thing happen to me in the past, and being the 'lonely girlfriend' I totally thought the guy wanted me back, even though he said it was just sex.. sand I probably made his life suck for a while with tearful phoncalls, sooooo unless you are sekretly harboring desires to get back with her, you're only going to make things more difficult for yourself. No matter how clear cut you make things to her, she's still going to have this little monster in her head telling her it is somehow different.

Don't worry, it'll come.  No rush, man.  Living in a hypersexualized culture can be a pain in the ass.

If there's anything that's true, it's that human expressions of and experiences of sexuality are pretty intensely varied.  Our culture is currently attempting  to pigeonhole people into sexual roles in the face of the reduction of gender-role importance.  Which is a fancy way of saying, "Our culture wants us to ignore that people are complicated and just fuck them."

There could be a lot of reasons for her behavior, most of which have nothing to do with you. Instead of getting upset, ask her in a calm and sensitive-guy way, "Hey what happened with that? You seemed really busy or distracted or something."

Yeah, you guys are nuts about this one. 'She's playing games' or 'she's a bitch'? Why would you jump to those conclusions? There are dozens of possible reasons why she might invite you out and then be distant. Maybe she thought you knew more people there and didn't need her company at all times. Maybe she was feeling shy. Maybe she got distracted. Maybe she got too drunk or too high. Maybe someone else swept her off her feet while you weren't paying attention. Maybe you just weren't fun to hang out with.

I mean, seriously, if your first conclusion is that she's playing some kind of malicious mind-games on you, uh, do you even really like or respect her? Your train of thought here is weird, man.

So last night my room mates drag me to a kegger at a mutual friend's house. I didn't have any time to get ready at all. I hadn't shaved in a week, hadn't brushed my teeth, didn't do anything with my hair, and my clothes were a little funky (and not in the good way). I pretty much spend the night standing in a dark corner and trying to get drunk.

And, somehow, for some reason, this girl hits on me!

I've been going to parties at this guy's house all year, and that's the first time anything like that has happened. Maybe I've just been trying too hard?

Well, not exaclty, if two people have good genes together for reproduction this applies. It generally stinks to the ones who don't, according to the study on it that I heard all this from.

Don't listen to everything you hear.

BO isn't what attracts women. BO is bacteria that eats dead skin cells and sweat, then produces a bad smelling waste. Pheromones are be excreted with your sweat.

The way it works, is there are three different types of pheromones a man can produce. And three different pheremone receptors a woman can have. They can both only have one type. So basically, there is a 1 in three chance of a woman being attracted to you, due to your pheromones alone. This doesn't mean that a woman cant like a man who doesn't receive his pheromones, just that there wont be the same connection as there would be if they were a match. Have you ever wondered why the laundry section in stores can be a very offensive place for men to go? That's because there are pheromones that are put into the detergents to attract women to it, but sends off alarms in a males brain that warns them of competition, and or conflict.

The same pheromones are put into mens cologne. Usually they will put two of the different pheromone types into a bottle, giving it a 2/3 chance of being a 'smell' that women are attracted to. Thus if a man has pheromone type A, and a cologne has types B and C. Than the pheromones he puts off in combination with of the Colognes, will guarantee him a biological connection. Usually it's the colognes men think smell bad that have the correct two.

Those bottles you see for sell that are supposed to be 'love potions' that attract women. Are just a cologne of some sort that contains all three of the pheromone types (wich some regular colognes do anyways).

Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pheromones#Human_pheromones
Some body spray advertisers claim that their products contain human sexual pheromones which act as an aphrodisiac. In the 1970's "copulins" were patented as products which release human pheromones, based on research on rhesus monkeys.[15] Subsequent to that androstenone, axillary sweat, and "vomodors" have been claimed to act as human pheromones. [16] Despite these claims, no pheromonal substance has ever been demonstrated to directly influence human behavior in a peer reviewed study. Some perfumes and fragrances in general are becoming more common with pheromones, although the effectiveness has been questioned and is still unproven. [15][17][16]

Most of what "they say" about pheromones is pseudo-science, at best. The truth is, we just don't know yet.

I'm not saying you're wrong. But I'm more inclined to agree with my college professor than I am Wikipedia. I agree there's a lot that we don't know and understand about pheromones though, and I also acknowledge that my teacher could be wrong, or I could have interpreted what he taught wrongly. But I'm pretty damn sure everything I stated above was ture.

I once had a very horrible soulless job.  I worked for Unilever in their R&D division.  Unilever makes, among other things (and they make just about everything), Dove, Sun Silk, and of course Axe Body Spray.  Let me assure you that as the guy who occasionally had to physically make the stuff from scratch, that there are no pheromones or secret smells in it designed to drive women wild.  Axe is made up of basically three ingredients. 


So, you might ask yourself, what is Axe really?  Well, when you boil it down, it really is just two things: Alcohol and perfume.  Yes, that is right, Axe is the sweet sweet smell of drunk sorority girl.  Once we capture that scent, we then kick it off to marketers who, using their evil powers of marketing, play up the utter terror men have over their masculinity and turn our sorority girl smelling perfume body spray into something "manly" that will help you bang chicks (lolz).  As Unilever's profits have shown, playing up men's blinding terror over the state of their masculinity when you are essentially selling them perfume is extremely effective.  If you can make something for a couple of cents, spend a few more cents on marketing, and then turn around and sell it for 10,000% markup, you have struck gold.

Oh, where with this before I started ranting?  Oh yeah, man perfume having pheromones that do anything = bullshit.

Agreed! However causal sex is way to fucking risky these days and I find sex is much more enjoyable when your emotionally invested in the relationship. Besides sex is always better when you and your partner know what each other really like and even if your very vocal with how and where you like to touched (which most people in my experience aren't) it still takes a few tries to get everything down perfect.

That kind of thinking will never allow you to kidnap Chuck Norris.  A better question to ask is "What do we do with him after we kidnap him and take him to an APM?"  I want to tie ropes around his arms and legs and make him dance like a monkey.  Then I want to roundhouse kick him in his monkey-mouth.  I'm kind of fat so someone might need to help hold me up for the actual roundhouse kick.

In all seriousness, dude...beware this line of thought.  It took me way too long to figure out that this one girl wasn't actually working all the time.

It may be true, and you probably can't expect her to be over-eager if you haven't made any case beyond "let's hang out."  But just...don't let it go the point of fooling yourself.  If you're interested in someone, won't you make time for them?

I went on a 'date' about a month ago. My first real, adult date ever, since I was with my wife for 5 years since I was 19. It did not go well.

She seemed solid when we met at a concert, and hit it off nicely. I got the number, and we made plans for dinner and drinks. When I picked her up, she looked GREAT and I was pretty stoked. Getting to the restaurant, she wasn't hungry, so we started with margarita n bloody maries. Being a man, with a penis and little sex in the last 6 months, I was pushing the booze pretty hard. ;) After an hour of pleasant conversation, she asks me for one of my smokes. Happy to oblige, I give one out and, trying a super-fly move, flick my zippo and offer the flame. Instead of leaning in and letting me light the smoke, she grabs at it, burns her hand, and jerks away, spilling her drink all over the table. I apologize, mortified, but she just laughs. So I order another round of ritas and a double patron for each of us, even though tequila and I don't mix well at all.

Turns out, neither does tequila and this girl. We dump our shots, finally have ourselves a smoke, and, for a moment, got along well. Then she looks at her hand, apparantly suddenly remembering that I burned her. Suddenly a bit surly, she orders another round of shots, despite my protests, and launches into a story about her old boyfriend, who once burned her hand in much the same way. Trying to remain noncommital, I made a few sympathetic noises and tried to steer the conversation to happier subjects. No dice. She continues her tirade for a good while, running up my tab all the while, her speech growing rapidly more slurred. I am confused as she continues to down shots and ritas like a man twice her size.

Still hoping for action, I allow it, but grudgingly, as it is slowly dawning on me that this girl is not what I was hoping for. It became more apparant as she grew more belligerant and subtly began to compare me and her ex in not so favorable ways. Getting a little pissed, I hit back that, since we just met and I was being pretty fucking cool and gentlemanly so far, maybe it was -her- that was the problem. This causes an outburst that drew attention, so I coax her, apologizing and claiming it was a poor joke. Not satisfied, she calls over the waiter and in a rude-ass tone orders herself another drink. I feel dread in my stomach as she tells him to 'hurry it up this time'. She's sloshed and being mean to the help. I am pretty sloshed myself and unable to figure out how to rescue the night.

I give it maybe fifteen more minutes of uncomfortable Ex conversation interspersed with me trying to guide the discussion away and her snapping at me before I excuse myself for the bathroom. When I return, she is obviously over the edge, her skin slightly green-tinged as she swallows yet more margarita. I'm close to panic as she leans against the table and groans "I don't feel good." Eager to end it, I hurriedly suggest that we leave, but she insists on going to the bathroom. Grateful, I call for the check and give up my credit card. As I'm waiting for it's return, a waitress comes to my table and informs me that 'Your friend is sick in the bathroom and is asking for you. Please do something or we'll be forced to call the police.' Apparantly she got very angry when some kind tinkler offered to help her from the bathroom and kicked the stall-door a few times for emphasis.

Fuck. I get my card and go into the bathroom, where she is leaned against the wall of the stall, weeping and trying to scrub vomit from her mouth and shirt with a paper towel. I want to die as I look at the waitress and see the disapproval on her face. I try to help my 'date' but she calls me an asshole and says to leave her the fuck alone, since it's my fault. Since there is puke on her shirt, I tell her to wait a minute and I'll get her jacket.  But I don't.

I bounced. I locked my car doors, threw her jacket into the bushes, jogged my drunk ass half a block, and called a cab. The jacket was gone when I got my car next day, and I haven't heard from the crazy bitch since.

Today I went into her work and got her an ice cream bar.  Then I left because she was busy and I told her that I was going to a coffee place down the street (where she used to work, in fact).  I said to her that she should stop by later.  She said okay.

She stopped by for about twenty minutes, and then we walked home together, because she had to get ready for indoor Soccer tonight.  Yeah, yeah.  Maybe she's just another fish in the sea of beautiful fishes.

Shoka wins the thread.

Not -once- have I met a woman that said "I wish I could just find a nice guy" that has wanted to date me, a self-proclaimed and well documented "nice guy". They are attracted to guys they can change, and then complain when they do OR they don't.

Women, and young women especially, are socialized to believe that they only have value if they have a man. Getting general male attention is validating, having a boyfriend is a big mark of validation, and being The Wife is the ultimate stamp of approval. (Don't tell me this is stupid; of course it's stupid. But it's also true that this is how things are.)

That should answer a lot of your questions about why women do stupid things, such as staying with men who beat them, marrying the wrong man, going back to an asshole over and over despite his cheating and emotional abuse, or falling for jerks (who tend to be aggressive and clear about "I want you," at least in the physical sense).

Should also give you a whole new perspective on engagement rings and wedding rituals.

Marriage is not about romance. If you don't plan to have kids, then there's maybe no point to getting married. If you do plan to have kids, then there are a lot of really good reasons to get married, many of which are financial or legal.

And if so, at what point is being an old married man cute?

But please, do not EVER get married just for the kids. Yes, they may be happier having both parents at home, but you have to think about your happiness too... and how happy will the kids really be if mommy and daddy are always fighting or don't even bother talking to each other.


And if so, at what point is being an old married man cute?

I beg to differ... I like to watch those old, white haired men with their wives holding hands and looking at each other with such a love... and when they look at each other in their eyes they look as if they are sixteen and in love for the first time again. It's so sweet.

It's a fact of life.

Just like giving a woman a comment that could or could not be an insult instantly gets her attention.  You just have to know how to phrase it.

Just say something like...those are nice nails, are they real?  Knowing full well they aren't.  She'll say yes or she's a liar and going to be annoying.  Then you say well, they look good even if they are fake.  And now she's like WTF?  Did he insult me or compliment me, and she's going to want to talk to you more to find out.

Sorry, it's true.

Yes, yes, and yes ...

It is a fact of life that being a complete dick to women (in a somewhat good humored casual way) most of the time ... and every once in a blue moon doing something really nice will get you more sex than generally treating them like princesses.

Likewise ladies, teasing and treating a guy like you enjoy his company, but generally have more important things to do will string him along waaay longer than appearing like you're hanging on his every word and thinking about him all the time.

I dunno ... maybe people just like a challenge ... or maybe we just very quickly take for granted what was easy to get. But ... thems the facts.

Disclaimer:  This is my opinion.  Not necessarily fact.

I'm a single dad of two children.  I get women who tell me that is just so wonderful, and that's impressive, and that's just WOW!, and you must be a great guy, and I wish my boyfriend was that responsible, I wish my ex was that responsible, I wish the father of my children was that responsible.  But they don't want me.  Some I don't blame.  If you have two kids already, you don't want more kids.  Perfectly understandable.  But others, when they have been flirting hard with me, via their speech, body language, and physical contact, suddenly don't anymore when they find out that I have two kids and am a single dad.  Because being a strong, secure male, evidently is a turn off.

I'm a good guy.  I guess it's true.  Cause I've been told this over and over.

Women however, don't truly want a strong, secure man.  They don't want us at all.  Because they just want to have the fairy tale.    They are raised to believe it exists.  Girls are fed princesses on a daily basis.  They don't start wanting a good guy until they are much older, and then most guys, even the good ones, aren't looking at them that way any longer.  (Actually children don't really understand life for a long time, because all of their stories are good guy/bad guy, no inbetween, so everything is either good or bad.  No in between, but that's something else I guess)  Women really do think getting married is something they must do.  But they don't want the good guy.  They want the bad guy.  They want the dramatic movie (which is the fairy tale they get when they get older, dramatic love stories) and thus they want the drama, thinking that when it's all over, they have a passionate kiss and everything is always going to be good and someone rolls the credits.  They don't understand that this does not happen, except in movies.

So they go for the guy who gives them drama.  Not realizing that, that guy, isn't going to change and give them that ending.  After a time, most people do reach that point in their life where they become 'good guy' or 'good girl' (I use quotes because it's only one use of the word good, and not necessarily a literal one) and they are cool then.

However, people need to realize, that the fairy tale never really happens.  They find someone that they love, and are sexually attracted to, and that, most importantly, they can tolerate being around them everyday.  And that they can talk to and solve the disputes that the WILL have. 

Disclaimer #2: I don't want any pity folks.  I really don't have time for a relationship, and it's to early, for the kids, for me to be having one that is more involved than friendship.

I've almost come to terms that my personality isn't sought after until I'm in my 30s, but somehow I get the feeling that at that point, I'll still be wanting 25 year olds....

I don't feel bad for you, I love kids, so long as I don't have to take care of them. But two... well... you ARE a trooper!

Yes. I do.

And Shoka, I feel you bro. I have THREE kids. While my ex isn't totally absent, she is a wretched soulless bitch who I would rather not let care for my kids. When women find out I'm so heavily laden with baggage, 99% immediately say 'Oh...' Alot of meaning in that little sound. But I have a secret. It'll get you through the tough times until you find a fox who LOVES children, especially yours. My secret?

Fat chicks. ;)

Disclaimer #2: I don't want any pity folks.  I really don't have time for a relationship, and it's to early, for the kids, for me to be having one that is more involved than friendship.

I was told by my friends and family the same thing when I became a single dad of two children.  That women would really be attracted to the fact that I was taking care of my shit and providing for two children on my own.  That's just not true.  Women give you the lip service that they think you're awesome, but ultimately they are not interested.

Your perspective on things is a little different from mine.  I firmly believe that the reason for a lack of relationships is directly because of my children.  It's just like all of the single moms out there that can't find a man.  Having children already is a big responsibility.  Men don't want that responsibility and shy away from women with children.  I think that women do the exact same thing.  They can be totally interested until they find out you have children, and then they just don't want that responsibility.

My last girlfriend was the perfect example of this.  We got along well enough, lived together for a little while, but she really didn't want to have children (or at least not children that didn't spawn from her hole, or children of an older age).  It finally started to really show through when she started treating them like crap, making horrible little comments about them that just really set me on edge.  Finally I had to think... do I really want my children growing up in an environment where my significant other makes them feel like crap with their nasty innuendo, largely unwanted as individuals?  The answer is fuck no.

I think the best bet is to try to find single women that also have children with the hope that everyone gets along.  I've pursued folks along this line... but I'm really having no luck.



Mansa... you were in her office.  You can answer my question.  I know you've been on!  Where was the cactus?  Was it still on her desk?  I'm very worried about the cactus, man!

But even when children aren't involved, women still tend to want the bad guy  ;)

But I think guys are the same way. They want the dangerous crazy girl instead of the home maker.

During one of my classes this semester we were talking about how people tend to be attracted to other people in two different ways. You have that person you're attracted to because they're a good provider or look like they would be a good mother to your children ... then you have those people you're attracted to because they're sexy. I dunno if that theory holds any water at all since it was just a bunch of us chatting, but it seems like it's true to at least a certain extent.

Ever heard of the compliment sandwich?

Nice thing -> Bad thing -> Nice thing

That was actually on the GRE Subject Test for Psychology as one of the questions (Or at least the pre-test) stating that people walk away with a greater sense of self after it.

True story: I'm a geek.

That's just funny, because I did just that today... never thought of it as a compliment sandwich though.  Lets see how that goes... there's still a high chance she will kill me.

I don't think you can really pigeonhole either male or females really into liking certain types of men or women.
I personally find a intelligent girl who is shy, very attractive. As for physical characteristics, I really don't have any preferences though I find that I am usually attracted to petite girls shorter than myself. For me if there is ANY physical attraction I have towards someone(which I usually don't, it is emotional), it is because of their face and especially their cheek bones and eyes.
/sigh, I hate 'dating' in High School. Only 1 more month till graduation.

My mother always said that men want Madonna in the living room, and Salome in the bedroom. ;)

Shoka, keep heart. One of my best friends is a "good guy" who suffered what we call "the curse of Ed." IE: Women he wanted only wanted to be friends. Women who wanted him were psycho crazy bitches with baggage. But he finally found the right one, and it's almost Hollywood sickening in its wonderfulness.

WP, fat chicks can be bitches, too. However, low standards make your chances much better.  :-*

I think most of us go through a phase where we're attracted to people who are totally wrong for us. Attraction isn't logical, or even justifiable half the time.

There are women out there who are attracted to the "good guys."  The problem is, that the older you get the smaller the pool of availability gets.

Girls don't hate nice guys, they just hate pussies, pushovers, low self-esteem, and dysfunctional emo children.  A lot of "nice guys" fall into one or more said categories.  You can be nice and accommodating without breaking down into tears or throw your life to her mercy.  Just make the occasional decision, don't be terrified to tease a little, and spare her from the excessive emotions.  Expression joy, exuberance, etc?  Great.  Expressing deep inner anguish and strife, tears, and slavish "omg I will die without out" devotion on the other hand is basically a bullet to the head in most dates.

So yeah, some girls are attracted to guys who will give them a black eye, but they are the exception, not the rule.  Most women are really just looking for a guy who holds a little power over his own life and doesn't look emotionally weak and dysfunctional.  That isn't to say that women don't throw common sense to the wind when dating.  They do, as do men.  I am just saying that being a "nice guy" isn't a strike against you unless "nice guy" translates into "people tread on my face and I am emotionally weak"... which it does a solid 95% of the time.

Title: Re: I went on a date..
Post by: Simple on April 25, 2008, 05:39:06 AM
I went on a 'date' about a month ago. My first real, adult date ever, since I was with my wife for 5 years since I was 19. It did not go well.

She seemed solid when we met at a concert, and hit it off nicely. I got the number, and we made plans for dinner and drinks. When I picked her up, she looked GREAT and I was pretty stoked. Getting to the restaurant, she wasn't hungry, so we started with margarita n bloody maries. Being a man, with a penis and little sex in the last 6 months, I was pushing the booze pretty hard. ;) After an hour of pleasant conversation, she asks me for one of my smokes. Happy to oblige, I give one out and, trying a super-fly move, flick my zippo and offer the flame. Instead of leaning in and letting me light the smoke, she grabs at it, burns her hand, and jerks away, spilling her drink all over the table. I apologize, mortified, but she just laughs. So I order another round of ritas and a double patron for each of us, even though tequila and I don't mix well at all.

Turns out, neither does tequila and this girl. We dump our shots, finally have ourselves a smoke, and, for a moment, got along well. Then she looks at her hand, apparantly suddenly remembering that I burned her. Suddenly a bit surly, she orders another round of shots, despite my protests, and launches into a story about her old boyfriend, who once burned her hand in much the same way. Trying to remain noncommital, I made a few sympathetic noises and tried to steer the conversation to happier subjects. No dice. She continues her tirade for a good while, running up my tab all the while, her speech growing rapidly more slurred. I am confused as she continues to down shots and ritas like a man twice her size.

Still hoping for action, I allow it, but grudgingly, as it is slowly dawning on me that this girl is not what I was hoping for. It became more apparant as she grew more belligerant and subtly began to compare me and her ex in not so favorable ways. Getting a little pissed, I hit back that, since we just met and I was being pretty fucking cool and gentlemanly so far, maybe it was -her- that was the problem. This causes an outburst that drew attention, so I coax her, apologizing and claiming it was a poor joke. Not satisfied, she calls over the waiter and in a rude-ass tone orders herself another drink. I feel dread in my stomach as she tells him to 'hurry it up this time'. She's sloshed and being mean to the help. I am pretty sloshed myself and unable to figure out how to rescue the night.

I give it maybe fifteen more minutes of uncomfortable Ex conversation interspersed with me trying to guide the discussion away and her snapping at me before I excuse myself for the bathroom. When I return, she is obviously over the edge, her skin slightly green-tinged as she swallows yet more margarita. I'm close to panic as she leans against the table and groans "I don't feel good." Eager to end it, I hurriedly suggest that we leave, but she insists on going to the bathroom. Grateful, I call for the check and give up my credit card. As I'm waiting for it's return, a waitress comes to my table and informs me that 'Your friend is sick in the bathroom and is asking for you. Please do something or we'll be forced to call the police.' Apparantly she got very angry when some kind tinkler offered to help her from the bathroom and kicked the stall-door a few times for emphasis.

Fuck. I get my card and go into the bathroom, where she is leaned against the wall of the stall, weeping and trying to scrub vomit from her mouth and shirt with a paper towel. I want to die as I look at the waitress and see the disapproval on her face. I try to help my 'date' but she calls me an asshole and says to leave her the fuck alone, since it's my fault. Since there is puke on her shirt, I tell her to wait a minute and I'll get her jacket.  But I don't.

I bounced. I locked my car doors, threw her jacket into the bushes, jogged my drunk ass half a block, and called a cab. The jacket was gone when I got my car next day, and I haven't heard from the crazy bitch since.

-WP doesn't feel bad at all.

Well, couldn't say whether your statistics are true or not.  Cause I'm not emo.  Haven't been emo ever cause it didn't exist when I was younger.  And not emo now.  Actually like I said before, most people are the bad guys/bad girls when they are younger and eventually mature into the 5% of people I suppose you are speaking of.

I got a strong feeling that your statistic is pretty spot on for people ages 15 - 23ish.  Sounds about right.  But that's not really what I meant by a nice guy.  Nor did I mean that a bad guy beats a woman.  (Not that someone who beats people is a bad guy, I think we can all see that as fact)

I mean a bad guy takes women for granted.  Good guys don't.  I mean a bad guy will be chasing other women behind -his- woman's back.  Good guys don't.  A bad guy will show no desire to commit and become a 'responsible adult/parent' (I kinda hate that term, it seems people someone who -has- become an adult/parent a responsible adult/parent...cause if you aren't responsible, you aren't an adult or parent) and just want to have fun, and do whatever they feel like, regardless of the feelings, desires, needs, or wants of their partner.  Good guys take those things into consideration.

And I still stand by the fact that, before I myself matured, I could date many women based on acting indifferent to their feelings and basically being a bad guy.  But I changed and didn't act like that anymore, cause it disgusted me and those relationships were volatile and pretty unfulfilling for everything but my loins.  And while I have dated less women since then, I will say the women I have dated, and the relationships I've been in, have been better on every level.  Sexually, physically, emotionally, socially and even logically I suppose.

Yeah confidence can get a woman.  But more often than not, it won't without also being indifferent, cold, selfish, and basically mean to her.  You can string a woman along forever acting in that manner, and they'll keep coming back.  If not immediately, then in six months, all you have to do is have a 'chance meeting' or make a phone call.  But it'll be a miserable relationship for both people until they finally call it off, with the only redeeming feature of it the fact that you have someone to fuck and a way to fill a little bit of the loneliness inside them.

Which is why people end up being scared of being alone and will stay in a bad relationship.  Cause they have the need to fuck.  And they are scared of being alone.

Heh. The first part of my post was in no relation to the P.S. at the end. It's kind of obvious how badly I was taking things out of context there...



I was referring to this when I talked about black and white:
Quote
I mean a bad guy takes women for granted.  Good guys don't.  I mean a bad guy will be chasing other women behind -his- woman's back.  Good guys don't.  A bad guy will show no desire to commit and become a 'responsible adult/parent' (I kinda hate that term, it seems people someone who -has- become an adult/parent a responsible adult/parent...cause if you aren't responsible, you aren't an adult or parent) and just want to have fun, and do whatever they feel like, regardless of the feelings, desires, needs, or wants of their partner.  Good guys take those things into consideration.

In person I usually come off as a quiet emotionless sarcastic ass. I have a habit of liking to know more than others to, and looking down on others who I perceive is morons(hey you would get mad if NO ONE in your English IV class knew who Lenin was and thought Communism was a country).
My problems is not that I am emotional or clingy. I have 'self-confidence', but not social self-confidence.
I also have no idea how to flirt and keep on fearing that if I flirt in anyway that they will think I am some creep or something. I also had no father figure growing up or any kind of brother, so didn't really learn "How to be a man".
Oh and I have a habit of talking abstractly often and over-explaining things.

All just reply to Rindan's excellent post.

I agree with Rindan 100%. I know far too many "nice guys" who are actually just spineless wimps who drift through life in no particular direction, express victimized helplessness at "not knowing what women want" (like it's fucking rocket science or something), and have little passion/interest/excitement in anything but their favorite sports team / comic book / gaming experience / other geek subject.

I suggest that giving a woman what she wants in a relationship is a lot like being an ideal father to her.

Think about how you'd treat a daughter.

Bring her little gifts now and then to see her smile.
Give sympathy and support when she's upset.
Be a figure of strength that doesn't have signficiant problems.
Take her places.
Provide for her (even when she has an income of her own).
Unqualified love despite her tantrums, but will stand up for oneself after a point.
Forgive her for her mistakes and deceptions and not harp on them later.
Always your priority. Be there when she needs you.
Protect her.

As a boyfriend or husband, it's the same, except that sex enters the relationship and you don't have a father's authority.

On the other hand, knowing what women want is not easy. Or maybe thats what my problem is.

Easy steps for understanding women:

1. Don't assume that all women are alike or even very similar. Guess what, we don't all love shopping, have PMS rages, fetishize shoes, or require/desire 20 minutes of foreplay before intercourse. A stereotype is not a woman.

2. Ask her what she wants.

3. Listen objectively and sympathetically.

Women have a hard time understanding men, too. ("OMG I just don't get why he can't stop glancing at other women when he's on a date with me!") In fact, most people do not understand other people, because they are unable to see anything from a truly different perspective. (And that's mostly because they've never put the effort in to do so.)

Even if a person is able to develop the capacity to see from another's perspective, then actually taking the action necessary to fulfill the other's desire/need can be quite difficult. My husband "knows" that I need him to hug me when he wants to apologize and make up for a fight, or else it doesn't feel true to me; and yet he forgets to do it, over and over. So I have to remind him, which is annoying. (No, he's not passive-aggressive, he truly just has a hard time engaging his brain and being rational when emotions are involved.)

I love hugs. I'm a hug freak. Where I used to live, all my friends hugged on a regular basis. I hug all of my new friends now. At first it was awkward, but now I see them hugging each other and new people often. I think the need for hugs, or physical touch as a whole, is essential to maintaining psychological health in our lives. Having one person you touch often is okay, but touching numerous people is healthy.

Can I touch you? It might cure your ailments.

Even if I did have friends, wouldn't be like that here. I live in a marine town. The guys are taught that hugging other males is 'gay'. Or something like that :P.

Don't get me wrong about what I said above; my husband hugs me a lot, and whenever I want it. He just has this thing about fighting and angry situations which causes him to become all stiff and weird and overly guy-like, so he loses the sympathetic/nurturing part of himself and can't figure out I need comfort.

Also I get (mostly) all the hugs I want from my three beautiful kids.

Yeah, I recommend hugs.

That's something I could never understand, you get in a fight with a woman, she has you pissed off to no end (where you want to be LEFT THE HELL ALONE until you cool off) and her primary concern is with -you- comforting -her-.

I'd imagine that you could take much the same approach to a man and come out with an equally good result.

People essentially all want the same things.  It's the methods they use to gain them that really differs.

Most guys wouldn't be happy in this situation.

6. Unqualified love despite his tantrums, but will stand up for oneself after a point.
A woman that is rational in an argument is every man's dream, admittedly.

7. Forgive him for his mistakes and deceptions and not harp on them later.
So is a woman that doesn't mentally record and regurgitate every mistake a guy makes.

8. Always your priority. Be there when he needs you.
I think we're mostly expected to fill that role for them rather than the reverse.

9. Protect him.
Nope.

So, not really the same.

What a man typically wants from a woman:

-- Recreational companionship
-- Sex that is sufficiently frequent and satisfying, and for her to be enthusiastic about it
-- Physically attractive by whatever standards he holds
-- Verbal compliments / admiration / respect
-- Domestic upkeep

What a woman typically wants from a man:

-- Engaging and emotionally satisfying conversation
-- Physical affection that doesn't come with a pricetag of sex
-- Financial support or, minimally, equal responsibility
-- Active commitment to the children, if there are any
-- Honesty and openness about daily life, emotions, plans, past / future

How to have a perfect date:

1. Look good. More important for the woman to do than the man, but still a guy shouldn't look sloppy.
2. Go out to do one or more fun activities together during which active attention is paid to the date partner. Going to a movie or doing any activity that involves silently sitting or not interacting doesn't count unless there's also a time during the date of talking and making eye contact.
3. While engaged in the fun activities, have an interesting conversation as well. Laugh a lot.
4. Female, compliment the male and verbally admire him whilst talking.
5. Male, show physical affection in a romantic (mostly non-sexual) way to the female: Hold hands, arm over shoulders, brush her hair back from her face, squeeze and kiss her hand.
6. Even if you're married and the money for the date comes out of the joint checking account, the man should take care of buying the tickets, restaurant bill, etc. during the date.
7. By this point both parties are probably in the mood for sex, so go do that.

VOILA, perfect date.

*Sigh*
Any "all women want this" or "all men do this" or "you should always do this" generalizations you make are always, always, always going to be false. There are always, always, always going to be many exceptions, and due to this, such advice is always, always, always 100% Grade-A bullshit.
Take, for example, the usually well-reasoned Gimf's list:
Quote
6. Even if you're married and the money for the date comes out of the joint checking account, the man should take care of buying the tickets, restaurant bill, etc. during the date.
I know women who would FREAK OUT over this. As in, throw a hissy-fit, throw food or water at my face, call me all sorts of names. What can I say? Women's Studies 101 has ruined a few good minds, though it's probably enlightened many.
While some women may be attracted to or flattered by a man who pays for everything, there are plenty out there who would be offended or indifferent.
This a major problem with relationship advice in general. There are no "Top 10 Tips to Get Your Man Sizzlin'", because everyone has different kinks, different quirks, different sexual responses, different personalities. Too often, people take what they like ("I like a man who takes charge") and assume that everyone likes the same thing ("Women like a man who takes charge", "If you want to attract women, take charge"). A "man who takes charge" probably isn't terribly attractive to some one who prefers to be sexually dominant. A man who pays for everything might look like he's trying to coddle the women he's with to some. Others might think he's insecure, or just plain financially irresponsible.

There is no singular perfect man, no singular perfect woman, and no sure-fire way to attract your desired sex. Dating isn't a puzzle game, some highly refined ritual ("If I pay for everything, go through all the right steps, and do the secret handshake, she'll fall for me for sure!"). A date is simply two people sharing their interests, values, and desires. If they match up or compliment each other, then great! Maybe there'll be a relationship there. If they don't, then they don't. And no amount of advice is going to change that, really.

I don't know about that. Let's look at the list from the context of what a man might want from a girlfriend or wife.

I forgot to mention that some modification would be necessary.  Let me rectify that.

Quote
1. Bring him little gifts now and then to see him smile.
I suppose a little gift would be nice now and then. How much stuff do I need? A kiss and some affection would be more welcome.

"How much do I need?"  That's the prime question when thinking of a gift for a man.  The truth is, most men will view the collection of trinkets as something that weighs them down.  So what do men want as a gift?  Mostly, it takes the form of experiences.  I'm sure sex comes immediately to most people's minds, but food and drink are also good options.  Just get him a burger from his favorite food joint, or buy a pack of his favorite brand of beer.  Even reducing his workload, albeit temporarily works best, would be greatly appreciated.  Effort is generally taken as a sign of eagerness, so that's rather important as well.

Quote
2. Give sympathy and support when he's upset.
I don't know about other guys, but when I'm upset, I usually want to be left alone to figure things out.

Realizing that someone just wants to be left alone counts as being sympathetic as well.  Resisting the urge to solve what's wrong with the man and, better yet, the urge to comment on the man's problems would fall under the realm of being supportive.

Quote
3. Be a figure of strength that doesn't have signficiant problems.
I don't believe any guy expects this of his girlfriend.

You don't?  Would you want a woman who is riddled with constant negativity and always tries to bring a situation down as a partner?  Just take a look back at WarriorPoet's description of his date.    A man's threshold may be higher, but there is still a minimum expectation.

Quote
4. Take him places.
?

This would fall under gifts.  As a side note, forcing trips on a man's (or anyone's)  schedule is typically resented, so any such action should be discussed and planned well in advance.

Quote
5. Provide for him (even when he has an income of his own).
Most guys wouldn't be happy in this situation.

Yeah, but then there's always layers.  Not to sound too traditionalist, but cooking dinner, or even bringing home the food so that dinner can be cooked counts as providing.  Typically, everyone has their list of duties in a relationship.  Everyone has their breaking point as well.  The further you keep your partner away from the breaking point, the generally happier they are.

Quote
6. Unqualified love despite his tantrums, but will stand up for oneself after a point.
A woman that is rational in an argument is every man's dream, admittedly.

Now that's just prejudiced.  Every man wants an argument to end at some point.  Typically, this is after he's calmed down.  It could be when the couple goes to sleep, it could be the next morning, but generally, no one feels secure in a relationship until they know an argument has passed.

Also. if a woman doesn't stand up for herself, sooner or later, the man will lose respect for her.  Yes, this even includes if she's giving him sex.  Actually, it is especially so.  At that point, the woman will typically be seen as dead weight.

Quote
7. Forgive him for his mistakes and deceptions and not harp on them later.
So is a woman that doesn't mentally record and regurgitate every mistake a guy makes.

So we're agreed, men want this?

Quote
8. Always your priority. Be there when he needs you.
I think we're mostly expected to fill that role for them rather than the reverse.

Yeah, but when the woman doesn't fulfill this role, however rarely it may come, it generally seriously hurts trust in a relationship, doesn't it?

Quote
9. Protect him.
Nope.

This can generally refer to having the man's back.  Don't point out his flaws in public, and don't go harping to your friends every time something goes wrong.  He does hear about it sooner or later.  Protecting a man can all come down to being supportive, particularly in social situations.

I agree with Rindan 100%. I know far too many "nice guys" who are actually just spineless wimps who drift through life in no particular direction, express victimized helplessness at "not knowing what women want" (like it's fucking rocket science or something), and have little passion/interest/excitement in anything but their favorite sports team / comic book / gaming experience / other geek subject. An emotionally-healthy, adult woman does not want to play mommy to her mate.

I agree 110% I know so many of these 'nice guys' who no woman will touch.

Eh. Dont' worry, nice guys. Chances are that the jerks are getting as little as you. Or less. I know this first-hand. Take a rotten, petty jerk. Blend thoroughly with a drunken, pot-smoking, arrogant asshole. Mix with equal parts of Dont Give a Fuck.

That's me, in all my glory. And I still don't get anywhere in this new 'dating' scene I've become privy to. It seems to mostly consist of feigning insterest in pointless converations, dressing up in expensive threads that, likely enough, look terrible, dancing in the club until some smellu drunk lurches into you, or some dunk-fuck greabs and eventually realizing that you hate this asshole.

Excuse me for getting technical here, but unless two peoples heart can stop at the exact same fraction of a nanosecond, I'm going to have to say everyone dies alone. The probability for this is seriously low. But there is always some strange, rare exception, so I'm going to have to say that an infinitesimal amount of people don't die alone.

I wouldn't consider dying 'with someone' to mean that you both die at the same time. I would simply consider it to mean that when you die are you are in the presence of someone else, thus meaning that dying alone probably only happens about 50% of the time (absolute guess, but I imagine dying in hospitals with family surrounding and such events happen quite a lot).

That is a valid point... But if someones not dieing with you, aren't you alone in your dieing? Like, if two people go to the park instead of one person, then each individual isn't going alone, right?

So, there is dieing alone, and being alone when you die. Dieing alone being defined as dieing without anyone you care about around(or just without people you care about/care about you). And Being alone when you die defines as not going through the experience of dieing with someone else...

Is there a difference of being simply sick while alone and when someone is near? In my experience ... there is. Whoever's near cant help you, you've got all the medicines you need, all you need to do now is lie down, relax, and beat the sickness out. And yet 'how' you spend the time waiting it out varies greatly. Being sick alone in the house and being sick with someone near (even though absolutely useless physically), makes a 'big' difference.

Death is kind of the same thing, though even more profound. You die alone when the only things that pass through your mind when you die is yourself. Any other thoughts that do not involve 'bitter' emotions, in my opinion ... mean that you do 'not' die alone.

Hey, can't you buy a lot of SKSes under the C&R rules?  That's handy.

You know sometimes being persistant and annoying /can/ pay off (note: it barely ever does, but it can!)

In my case about 8 months ago I picked up this Chinese girl who was a college student at a local university in Tokyo and we went on a date or two but she was like an ice queen, I could barely touch her arm in public without her giving me the polite brush off.

Finally made it into her apartment under the guise of helping her play the guitar and study for some report she had to write on a famous American author ... little touching, little making out ... she kept saying she had homework to do so we should stop ... persistance ... persistance ... finally she just sat up and told me: Ok look, I really have to do my homework so, lets just f*ck and get it out of the way so you can go home.

See, the unfortunate thing about people is this: girls want the assholes, and guys tend to wind up with the "hot girls". Girls need to realize they can't "fix" people, and guys need to realize that chick that is about a 12 on a scale of 1-10 probably skates by on her looks. If both parties realized this, there would be a lot of "average-looking but nice" pairings. This, I swear, is true.

That's an awesome quote.  ;D

I agree as well with the rest of the post. I think that a lot of guys are under the impression that women hold all the cards in the "getting some" department, and that they can just waltz outside and grab the first guy off the street to satisfy their needs but for some reason they're holding out on the world.

It's not like that. Lots of women go through the exact same emotional hoops guys do, the trappings are just a little different. I have two friends now who are professional models ... their romantic lives are completely fu*ked and they are /not/ satisfied. Trust me.

Actually, one of the REALLY cool things about talking to people online is the honesty it can afford. You don't know these people, they don't affect your "real life" one tiny bit in 99% of most cases, so you're free to really speak your mind without worry that it'll come back to haunt you socially in some way. I wish it were like this in the "real world" because I think men and women would have a much easier time figuring relationships out with one another if it was. Oh well ...  ::)

I totally blame the media.

My husband thought I was kidding, until I used the dry erase thingy on my refrigerator to tally up every commercial or TV show in the course of two days that had a "hot milf + average dumpy guy" pairing.

Add to that the insane amount of stupidity on TV, and the endless parade of "chick flicks" that have the loser guy (or chick) ending up with the hot chick (or guy) and everything's hunkey dorey... I think it tends to put this subconscious stress on everyone about where to put their standards, as well as putting an unrealistic slant on things.

I also blame parents. Little girls love princess movies with happy endings... (You know you loved the Little Mermaid! And Aladdin! And Beauty and the Beast!) but they need to actually SEE real relationships. And be made aware that relationships really start AFTER the movie ending. And that they're work. It's just harder and harder for today's children to be privy to good relationships, because so few people have them. :(  

As a side note, I had to have a bit of a chat with my 12 year old, because of a conversation she had with her sister, who was talking about wanting to go to Miami to live when she grew up and not being sure about having a boyfriend first. "You can make him drive you there," she said. "Men make good slaves for that."  I almost drove off the road!  Now I have to suffer through  a lot of bad Teenage Television in order to make sure they're not getting the wrong ideas from the shows they watch.   :o

I have to contend something...

I consider myself to be a pretty good looking gal (not tooting my own horn but I'm not gonna lie), but I don't fly by on my looks, and I definately don't want a 'bad guy' though I have been lumped with a couple in the past. Firstly, there is a massive struggle in knowing whether the guys actually interested in -you- or simply bedding you. Second, I have finally found myself a REALLY NICE GUY who I am extremely attracted to. Though because he doesn't look like Brad Pitt and he thinks I'm super fit (I'm not -that- hawt, but he just seems to think so) half the time all that happens is he's freaked out, jealous, protective and self-conscious.  It's hard for -everyone-.

P.S
don't invite girls round to your houses for -first- dates unless you've been friends for a while and such. That's just scary and pervy. However, if they invite you round...that's a different story.

P.S
don't invite girls round to your houses for -first- dates unless you've been friends for a while and such. That's just scary and pervy. However, if they invite you round...that's a different story.

Me (Ginger):  Grandma, drinking is not that bad.  And you can't get drunk or addicted in one sip.

Grandma:  Yes ... you can.

Me:  What about Jesus, Grandma?  Didn't he turn water into wine?

Grandma:  It was -non-alcoholic- wine.

It's been argued that Jesus was probably married, the theory being that it would have been outlandish and noteworthy for a male of his age not to have been.  Sounds unlikely to me, but...I really couldn't care less.

Here's some weird things I like to think about when I need to clear my head:

   - Check out the sun. See the light filter through the clouds, feel the warmth on your skin. Then think about what the sun actually is! It's this immense, terrible nuclear reaction happening millions of miles away. It's so powerful that it can damage your eyes if you look at it, and burn your skin if you don't wear sunscreen or whatever. Fucking crazy, maaaaan.

   - Think about velocity. How fast are you moving? You're sitting there. But the planet's rotating. And the planet's traveling around the sun, and the sun's moving 'round the galaxy, etc, etc... Duuuuuude.

So yeah, probably not what you were looking for, but it works for me!

Get you some benzoyl peroxide acne treatment cream (over the counter) and apply a light coat to acne-prone areas morning and night to dry your skin out.  If you haven't used that stuff before, be sure to test a small hidden area for colorfastness.

Oh, my theory about being nervous?  Act like it's not a big deal.  It's not a pretty huge date; you're going to hang out with somebody you've known for quite a while.
I have not rigorously tested this method.

I dunno I do the same thing when I get stressed.

Bebop's got the right of it. Learning not to worry about things until you really need to is something that I had a lot of difficulty with, personally. Of course, it's important to steer clear of total apathy. But I'm not a philosopher, so I'll cease my ramblings on that.

All I know for sure is that all is well for me when I deal with each situation in my life decisively when it comes up, while not worrying too much about it when the time isn't right or I can't do anything about it anyway. So, just resolve on having a good time during your date, if you spare it any thought at all, and the rest should flow quite naturally.*

Seriously though, I never said to read the comments, that's just crazy.  The comments section is evil.  They took all the worst trends in chatspeak, texting, various Internet memes, and so on, and combined them, called it lolspeak and considered themselves clever for doing it.  It is pretty awful.

Eh. Dont' worry, nice guys. Chances are that the jerks are getting as little as you. Or less. I know this first-hand. Take a rotten, petty jerk. Blend thoroughly with a drunken, pot-smoking, arrogant asshole. Mix with equal parts of Dont Give a Fuck.

That's me, in all my glory. And I still don't get anywhere in this new 'dating' scene I've become privy to. It seems to mostly consist of feigning insterest in pointless converations, dressing up in expensive threads that, likely enough, look terrible, dancing in the club until some smellu drunk lurches into you, or some dunk-fuck greabs and eventually realizing that you hate this asshole.

True love is a lie. Most people die alone.

I can't recall what terrible movie it is, but in the movie a guy finds two girls who want to have sex with him at the same time.  They have sex with him, but this is just a ploy to steal from him.  When he falls asleep they steal his TV and leave.  He gets a new TV, finds the girls again, and invites them over again. 

I guess what I am trying to say is that a pair of boots could be cheaper, if not quicker, than dinner and drinks.

I consider dinner, drinks, boots, my pants, and even letting her rob my house of travel cakes or carrying off my couch while I sleep to be a pretty cheap price for the company of a foxy lady who's into Arm and therefore just as big of a dork as me. Only nicer on the senses.

I say set the rules in the first day Rindan.  Make sure she understands how it will end when the four days period is over.

And steel yourself to tell her that you put the rules clearly and she accepted them all if she breaks out in the end.

I've been hanging out lately with my roommate's ex-girlfriend and my ex-girlfriend's wife.  We have a lot of fun together doing stuff, and she crashes on the couch at my place when my roommate's out of town.

Should I try and change the relationship to make it more intimate, or just keep her as a good friend?

Yeah, you should definitely try to get intimate with her.

I see no reason the whole social group shouldn't be involved.

I dated this girl for 3 years, and we seperated.

And then she said, "I'd like to bring my best friend into the country.  What's the fastest way to do that?  I know!  I'll marry her!"

So they got married.

My roommate liked the girl, and they started to date for a while, but then they broke up because my roommate is even-more of a robot than I am.

And now we just watch Star Trek together and she sleeps on the couch.  I'll let you know tonight if I have the balls enough to put the moves on her.  AKA if I drink enough to get totally hammered.

So, I just called Megan, the girl I had the hots for in high school and dated a little bit between semester in December. I asked if she wanted to do anything, and she said: "Well, this is kind of short notice. What did you have in mind?"
And I totally couldn't think of anything. There was what felt like thirty seconds of silence, after which I stammered like a doofus for a while. I think I probably mentioned that I'm 'completely broke', which probably wasn't a good move, in retrospect. It was pretty embarassing.
She mentioned some sort of festival downtown next weekend, so I jumped at that. Didn't set a date, though. No, I just stammered some more and said, "Well, I'll let you go," and said bye.
That's how you can tell I actually like this girl; because I act like an utter retard around her.

As creepy as it would sound, if you're flirty and really in close, one on one and face to face, watch her eyes. If she keeps glancing down at your lips, just lean in. If she only looks at your eyes, or looks at other things in the room, she is bored with you.

That sounds right, doesn't it?

Title: Re: I went on a date..
Post by: Jingo on November 24, 2008, 05:47:12 PM
Explain.

It's basically a theory men have concocted to explain women in courtship scenarios.

It runs kind of like this: women have two pools in which they place men, or two ladders. One is the "friends" ladder and the other is the "potential lover" ladder. Women tend to place men on either ladder early in their first encounter with that man. So almost right away, you have been put somewhere either on the "friends" ladder or the "lover ladder". You can move up or down the ladder after initial placement but "ladder jumps", in which you jump from one ladder to another is supposed to be very rare. So bottom line is if you're rejected by a girl it's because you were either on her "friends ladder" to begin with or you were too low on her "lover ladder"

Yeah, I think that's it.

Just DO it.  Lean in slowly and kiss her.

That nervous, awkward moment where you put it all on the line is what it's all about.  If your nerves aren't screaming like rabid lunatics, you aren't doing it right.

Only two things can happen.

1)  She gives you the repulsed look and pulls away before you lock lips.  You really didn't lose anything, and you know where you stand instead of being in the dark.  Best part is you don't even have to ask her out anymore, because you KNOW she doesn't like you in that way.

2)  You play tonsil hockey.  Score!  Now stick your finger in her butt immediately.  Chicks love that.



Lately I haven't even made it to the date part.  Last month, I met a girl (with kids, bonus points for single parents looking) at my local town festival.  It's called the Yamboree, just so you get a little glimpse at my life.  I flirted some, and things seemed to be going well until she said... "I notice you don't have an accent.  You must not be from around here?"  Sad thing is, I've lived in this pathetic town most of my life.  How to articulate... "I'm sorry, I just don't like sounding like an uneducated hick." in a nice way?  Things died past that point.

Yeehaw.

Probably, I have a habit of looking down at a lot of people in contempt, oftentimes girls my age. I'm not even that particular with looks, but finding a girl that is smart and isn't afraid to hide it, all while being assertive and independent and not getting easily offended.

I went to a shareholder's meeting for my old Video Game company that I worked at.
I showed up late.

As I sat down, one of the VP's stood up to talk, he saw me, and said, "I'd like to reiterate, that everything here is completely confidential."

While he said that, he was staring at me.  I waved a little hand and he waves back.
OOOh boy.  I got called out during a shareholders meeting.


Meanwhile, after the meeting, a few of my old coworkers go out to a very nice pub, at 5 p.m.

After having two large beers and a burger, we were laughing at old times and new adventures since we last met.  Then, a dude came up to the table, looked at me, and said, "There is a girl at my table that thinks you are Gorgeous.  You should come sit down at our table and meet each other."  My friends edge me on and I move tables and sit down at their table.
She's a 6/10 but not very engaging with her talking.  I talk a lot about interesting things that happened to me today, and then she goes out for a smoke with her girl friend.  So, I was left with the dude, and I said, "I'm going to go because I'm drunk and nearly done."  He said, 'Okay, I'll tell her.'.

I finish up my beer, and then talk about living in Montreal with others.  Then I say, "It's ten o'clock, I'm drunk, and I want to go to the Mercury Lounge to go hit on this bartender."  One of them says, "Was she at the Gold Party?" and I said, "Yeah."  So I leave.

I show up at the Mercury Lounge, skip out on paying cover, and stand at the bar.  I say hello to the bartender, and say that I'm drunk, and that I wanted a coffee.  She said, "Okay, let me see if I can get you that."  She comes back after a bit and tells me that the coffee maker is broken.  I said, "Well, I'm exhausted and I don't want more beer.  I think I'm going home."  She replies, "I'll see you tomorrow, then."

Oh boy, I'm going to see her tomorrow.  Maybe I'll ask for a hug and a kiss kiss.  Unless her boyfriend shows up.

This thread delivers. Why have I not been reading it?

First of all: Mansa: Bartender chick is crazy as fuck. No one stares dead-eyed into the camera unless their soul is poisoned. She is poisonous. A poison-tender. Has she ever asked you what you're poison will be? YOU MAY THINK IT MEANS ALCOHOL BUT IT MEANS HER, MANSA, HER. Her crazy poison-self.

Seriously, bitch is whack.

Okay. Secondly, to all the people wonder how to go from flirting to making out...generally its a bit of a guessing game. You're not going to make out with everyone you're flirting with, and who's flirting/interested back, immediately or just anywhere. Some people aren't comfortable with tonsil hockey in front of other people, for example, and some people just don't hook up before dates etc. And guys...you've got to take initiative. Girls that do are really awesome, but they're in the minority. That said, I'll try to outline the proper situation (though there really isn't a way to tell for sure).

Location: Somewhere semi-alone, or at least where the two of you are talking one-on-one.

Hints you can see: If the girl seems really interested in conversation, is standing close to you, is looking mostly at you, or touches you lightly. (Or even lightly just holds on to you.) I've heard that occasional glances to the lips indicate an interest in kissing, as well. But think about it: You've all seen people who are obviously about to hook up. The girl is generally staring at the guy, and vice-versa.

How to know its the right time, and HOW TO MAKE THE MOVE Okay, given the hints above, here comes in the guessing part. There's no real way to know for sure whether or not the other person wants to or not. You've just got to decide for yourself if you think its the right time. But that said, just fucking go for it. Seriously. The worst is a bit of awkwardness. I've had it happen a couple of times, and yeah, its awkward for a very tiny bit. However, you now know that she isn't ready or interested. If not, well, you win.

In my opinion, the best time to try for a kiss is in a lull in the conversation, if the girl is staring at you, smiling coyly, and close. I generally lean in tiny bit a bit at first, and generally people will either a: figure out its a kiss and start to lean in as well, or b: naturally adjust the distance, at which point you can really lean in or back off, depending on what you think that means.

Considerations If you're long-time friends with the girl, this may not be exactly the way to do it, though probably the situation will be the same no matter what. It just, however, might be how you normally converse.

Finally. Just fucking go for it. The risks are minimal, opposed to the gains. I've been in that situation before, especially once with a really, really attractive girl....Mentally I was all over the place, not sure at all if she was interested, thought she was out of my league, etc. And eventually I just went for it, and voila, I found a really attractive, really good kisser.

Now that I've outlined the hookup for ya'll, why don't you outline, for me, what to do when more than one person is interested in you. I.e., in the case of the girl above, I could probably have continued it beyond the few times we made out. I mean, she let her ride go home and was talking with me at a party, and the other interested girl saw, and ran out in tears, so I made an excuse about making sure my own ride knew what was up and went to go see what the hell was wrong.

Also, why the arguably best-looking freshman girl in our dorm was interested in me while I was taken. Seriously. Shoot me in the face. Then explain. And help.

Because my dear, women see you making another woman happy and think that they should have that happiness. 9 times out of 10 girls that only know you as acquaintance know if you're hooked up or not, and 9 times out of 10 they want your dick just to prove they are better than the other girl you are with to themselves. If a hot guy is single, I guarantee the girl is thinking, "What's his baggage?" and the chances of them falling madly in lust is slim to none. A man is way more interesting if someone is obviously already able to put up with him. Take this interest up about 50 notches if you are noticeably in love with your girlfriend.

edited to add: Oh yeah.. and girls always want what they can't have. Not sure if I can actually help the situation though. It's going to happen your whole life.. and you know, only if you have mega millions when you're old and decrepit.

I don't think misogyny was used. I'm pretty sure I hate trifling women just as much as I do men.

I'm happily married and unlike a lot of young people though so I'm pretty "outside the box" and have a drastically different view on socially acceptable behavior when dealing with relationships, though.

No, but you get all of this!

Here's a message that Jingo sent me from the future:

I am an employee at B&N, and I will admit that the truth is inbetween. The ONLY reason why it's a good company to work for - i.e. Medical Care, paid sick days, etc... - is because they don't want their workers to unionize, ala Borders. Other than that, it suffers from ALL of the same faults as most corporations; slow to change, no one to take responsibility, a crushing heirarchy that squeezes the humanity out of its workers, and the store where I work specifically is a gynocratic dictatorship of oppression and nepotism.
Customers are perhaps the worst kind of human, and their requests are almost ALWAYS ridiculous, but unlike some corporations like Amazon.com, B&N suffers from "Old Decision Making Illness," otherwise known as ODMI. I am the ONLY employee (keep in mind, I'm at the lowest rung in the shit heep, and actually have a bachelor's degree), at my work that knows ANYTHING about computers. Our operating system is windows 9fucking5, and it takes longer to log into the computers than it does to read "War and Peace." As far as the ODMI goes, B&N is more interested in quarterly profits than in doing anything for the longterm, so all of its technology is out of date, its managers are out of date - as is their way of thinking - it takes WEEKS to get ordered items as opposed to a day or two and everything sells for retail.
I work there, and our 30% discount for employees means that stuff on Amazon.com is only SLIGHTLY cheaper! Don't mistake an easy work environment for a good one. B&N is a frustrating place to work, I can only imagine how painful it must be to shop there, especially with the kind of customer service that I see my fellow co-workers giving our customers. It's almost universally true that the employees with the WORST customer service skills are the ones that get promoted too.

Apparently, Borders' the place to work at!

It is some of both, really.  Girls will also flirt/be friendly with gay guys, little boys, and very old men, because they are "safe".

Sometimes girls don't mean it as a flirt, or a come on.  The girl thinks she is just being friendly and playful, and the guy is thinking she wants to jump his bones.  Eventually girls learn not to be too friendly with guys, just to avoid trouble.  Guys misinterpret friendly cues as sexual advances, and sometimes even misinterpret sexual advances as friendly gal pal behavior.  Of course women also misinterpret men's cues, leading to even more potential problems.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/04/080401081904.htm
Quote from: SCIENCE
In the study, appearing in the April issue of the journal Psychological Science, men who viewed images of friendly women misidentified 12 percent of the images as sexually interested. Women mistook 8.7 percent of the friendly images for sexual interest.

Both men and women were even more likely to do the opposite -- when viewing images of sexually interested women, men mistakenly called 37.8 percent of the images "friendly." Women mistook 31.9 percent of the sexual interest cues for friendliness.

My wife, Laura, and I went on  date night before last and watched Watchmen. 
The movie was awesome, except for the last thirty minutes of it where the fire alarm was going off.

We did get some free passes out of the deal, though.

One time I saw Star Wars: Episode 1
It was like the second night since opening, and right during the POD Races, the movie stops, and the theater lights go up, and it doesn't play for 2 minutes.
Some people thought it was an intermission, and left the theater to go to the washroom / get popcorn.
Then the movie starts playing again.

That movie sucked so bad.


::edit::

I saw the Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian with my parents on opening night.
It was 10 minutes left in the show, and then the picture froze on one frame.  About a half-second later, the film frame bursts into flames.  About a full second later, it was completely gone.
I never saw that before, but it was pretty awesome.  Sucks for the theater, though, to lose a copy of the original film on opening night.

Yeah, unless you get an STD or and unwanted pregnancy, if you're single, it's almost always worth it. There's been a couple times I was like: Damn, she was lame, should've just went home and jerked off. But for the most part, it's better than masturbation.

A meaningless fuck is still better than no fuck at all, usually. Not saying I'm against relationships, sex is better when you actually give a shit about the other person. But, alot of the time comes with extra baggage and garbage that make you regret it ever being anything more than sex in the first place.

It's not the male's fault that our half of the species hasn't accumulated guilt and dishonor toward casual sex over the centuries. (Well, somewhat, that is the male's fault for the female's cultural assessment of sex.)

It's more a 'get with the times' thing, I guess.

No no, I wasn't saying he should give up video games or sex. I'm saying he should pick up more hobbies that make him more desirable for sex.

Hobbies take away from Arm and Vidya games. Besides, saying "I work with Children" is supposed to be some sort of aphrodisiac.

I don't think I'd be able to make out with an eye-patch sporting girl. I'd keep pulling away to say "Yarr!" or "Yo ho ho!" or demand that she give me a full broadside... She'd probably get pissed and run me through with her cutlass.

If this wasn't the Internet, that's the cue for me brag. But it is. And made worse that all my GDB handles are based on someone else :P

Heh, any real man should be able to take a girl - a hot one - out on a $10 date, and make her wish that the day didn't end.
Any real woman should be able to do the same, take a rich guy out on a date, without having to rely on thick makeup and expensive boots.

The best dates I've ever been on involved beer and bowling. Maybe a movie and a few drinks if I -really- was into her. If a woman expected a fancy dinner and dancing, I always knew she was not for me. One, because I'm poor. Two, because I like bowling and I love beer. Three, because I'm not much for dancing until I'm shit-faced drunk, and most 'classy' places throw out the lurching drunk once he gets on the dancefloor. Still, once the time comes, I'm a mean two-stepper. Plus I look sexy as hell in a cowboy hat. :)

So, in my book, which is the only one that counts, wynning consists of having fun, not spending myself poor, and doing a few drunk-ass turns around the dancefloor with a laughing girl. Hell yes.

I plan to get shit-faced drunk today.

The best dates I have been on have almost always involved sushi. Weird, huh?  But I just really like sushi.  I like it even more when someone else pays for it.  Mmm.  Melt in your mouth!
Title: Re: I went on a date..
Post by: Marauder Moe on June 29, 2009, 12:28:03 PM
IMO, sushi is one of the best date foods.  It's exotic (and good geek girls usually love it), classy (but won't break the bank as much as an upscale Italian place), not too messy, and light/healthy.
Title: Re: I went on a date..
Post by: WarriorPoet on June 29, 2009, 03:20:32 PM
The one sushi place near me is waaaaaaay too expensive. They also had shitty waitresses that did a piss poor job of keeping my glass full and making sure we were good. That's all I ask of a waitress. Show back up every so often, fill my glass with tea, ask if we need anything. She didn't do this. They didn't even serve sake. Then, when the check came, it was waaaaaay too much for what we'd eaten. "Oh yeah, we have a seating fee, plus we put 15% on top or your check. For a tip." A TIP?!?!!? Only GOOD service gets a tip from me, bitch. This means if I go longer than five minutes with only ice in my glass, unless there is a fire or the place is crammed to the gills with other patrons, which it's not, you get nothing.

I ended up paying the whole thing because I'd already had a few drinks before going and didn't want to end in jail for making a scene, but I told the hostess I'd never return and that their food tasted awful (It really wasn't that bad. Decent, not great. I just wanted to bitch). So, I'm biased against sushi.

I prefer a good Blues Grill that serves booze and steak and, for bonus points, has live music.

I think that, legally speaking, automatically added gratuity is still gratuity and you're well within your rights to cross it off and subtract it from your bill.

That said, having traveled overseas, I don't mind that tips are considered obligatory.  The level of service you get in American restaurants compared to European is considerable.  Over there you really have to make quite an effort just to get your water refilled (you never get soda refilled for free).


I personally dislike places with live music, or any music.  I think they're awful for dates.  It makes conversations practically impossible.

I don't like noisy live bands during my eating. I prefer a one guy with a guitar or a jazz band or something. There is a Fridays in Amarillo that usually has this guy with a guitar, usually the same guy, in their bar area. If you can keep him from playing Nickelback acoustic, then you're golden. He does alot of old rock with a few blues or country tunes thrown in. Just right for atmosphere, not enough to distract you from booze and conversation.

Jingo makes an awesome point: Japanese is terrific. The Kabuki near me does an EXCELLENT steak pllate for only 20$. Plus they have lights, theme-music, cook on the table, and 2$ warm sake. Yum. Plus they give you a bowl of leek and beef soup that is pretty much the best thing I've ever tasted.

Bit of a sweeping generalisation there - Europe isn't exactly homogenous. It all depends on where you go in Europe. A couple of places are famously bad - I think Holland was consistently the worst I've ever experienced. Others are fine and I've never really had any problem getting water refilled. Soda isn't refilled for free alright but after seeing the buckets of the stuff Americans drink I'm not sure that's a bad thing. The tip varies all around Europe too from small change to 10%+. Most people I know consider the US service style to be a bit over-friendly in a fake sort of way and too much on the intrusive side.

Making out does not equal romantic interest. Only boredom. Or jstorrie being the least douchetastic cat at the party. Or a belly full of Southern Comfort and a nostril full of uncut blow. I've made out with plenty of women I had no real interest in at all. I've also made out with a few woman friends that I was interested in partying with and having a good time, but who I didn't particularly want to set up shop with, just into having fun at the time.

Either way, I say poke her in her good eye and condemn her as a harlot.

Eh, we'd actually been having a pretty intense fling. She'd spent the night several times. One or two more dates and/or/nights in at my place and we'd have been basically 'going out.' I think she just lost interest/met another dude/had stuff going on, etc., whatever.

If it's not planned, I don't consider it a date. There's something about actually agreeing to spend time with someone, and clearing off some time in your schedule, which conveys interest and intent more clearly than just running into someone you like while drunk and taking them home. In my books, anyway. It is relatively rare for me to go to 'girlfriend/boyfriend status' without making sure the physical intimacy bit clicks first?

I think the traditional way of going about it is a poorly-designed process which was founded in misogyny, Puritanical ethics, and emotional cowardice.

I hope this wasn't a first date.  That's a bit overdoing it, generally.

Personally I'm wary about going past first base on the first date or two.  Of course I always want to score, but if I go too far with a girl too soon I usually don't stick with her very long.

She rotated my whirlybird until we both puked and shat our pants. I laughed and inhaled and did crack again. Then explosive feta cheese blew up if you get my drift. And those are the bases, in that order.

First date: bookstore.  And lunch.  In the bookstore.
Second date: mini-golf (yes, roll your eyes; I don't mind).  And dinner.

Third date: anyone want to give me guild-appropriate ideas?

(I'm sorry, there will be no snogging. But y'all are sweet.)
At the hot and heavy rate you're going, you might be able to go grocery shopping together...

Or..oh oh, you could go do your laundry together, maybe even share a dryer as you talk...

OR! You could actually sack up (if you're a dude, I dunno) and go do something fun?

Unless you're under 21 years old, those are horrible dates...absolutely horrible.

I see what you did there...

But seriously here are some suggestions after letting you know those you did already were totally lame.

Goto a Comedy Club for a Show/Dinner, just make sure the material is appropriate for the chick, don't bring a feminist to an Andrew Dice Clay show...

Movies are always good, go see a new Release or Avatar if you haven't yet.  Book of Eli was alright, Avatar in 3d is amazing.

That's about all I have if you're NOT trying to get laid, which I assume you're not, cause no Snogging.

A local music event since you are both into music.

Or another type of live event such as a play.

Or bowling. (Even if you suck, it's fun.)

Ice skating.

Wedding expo.

OK, not that last one...yet :D

Unless you're under 21 years old, those are horrible dates...absolutely horrible.

Cuddling and a movie does not have to involve any "snogging," despite what modern society/culture/peers would have you believe.

Cuddled together on a couch/love seat with a good movie on can be a very enjoyable thing in and of it's self.

Consider every ounce of hawtness than can possibly be packed into four chained letters.  My first date after getting married (if I get married to whomever I might ultimately marry) is going to be that kind of hawt.  :o

According to my figures, this will be approximately date #183.  :'(

Getting married IRL is almost as uncomplicated as a pair of Tuluki hunters shacking up and calling each other "mate."

If she wants a big wedding that will take a long time to plan, negotiate for an immediate trip to the courthouse to make it legal, first ;) Then go on with the dating!

Edited to add: Bundling page refers to Ruth and Boaz. IT'S BIBLICAL. DO IT.

Side note: I love the story of Ruth. (Would have named my daughter Ruth, except that it's already my sister's name.)

I love bundling because it's eminently practical, and because it shocks modern people to find out that in the early 1800s (prior to the Victorian era), teenage girls and boys were allowed by their parents to sleep in the same bed.

They often had some kind of board between them, and their entire family in the entire room. So I suspect that roaming hands were more common than actual full on sex. Puritan attitudes toward sex were actually pretty healthy.

Although there is a case in the Massachusetts records where a man was executed along with his livestock after it was discovered that he'd been intimate with them.

I went out on a first date with an older, exquisitely attractive and intelligent woman on Thursday.  She's 31, I'm almost 25.  We both like video games and she mentioned she sometimes plays Nintendo DS and that her favorite game of all time is Final Fantasy IV.  Since mine is Dragon Warrior IV, I brought the Nintendo DS version with me and had it in my pocket. 

She actually asked me at one point about Armageddon MUD and seemed very interested in discussing the topic.  I was so giddy to talk to a very beautiful, smart woman about Armageddon.  Then I whipped out Dragon Warrior IV on for DS and offered to let her borrow it.  She gladly accepted.  There wasn't a dull moment during our date.

When we were settling the check for dinner and our wine I insisted to pay.  So, she then suggested she pays for my next drink (on a subsequent date).  I didn't even have to ask for another date!  It doesn't get much better than that.

Date #2 is on Monday.  I doubt I'll be sharing details thereafter, but I felt the need to talk about my first date because I've never had such a nerdy, yet great date with such an attractive woman before.  I was totally floored and it seems like she was too.

Turning to leave, the genial, balding male says, cheerfully, in sirihish,

The genial, balding male extinguishes his bone torch.
Someone closes the door from the other side.

At your seat, a female voice whispers, in sirihish,

The bed shakes slightly as someone rocks back and forth.

At your seat, clearing your threat, you say, in sirihish,

The bed shakes slightly as someone rocks back and forth.
Someone looks at you.
  
At your seat, a female voice whispers, in sirihish,
  "That's what you call me. You're a sweet boy, but you can only see inside."

At your seat, uneasily, you say, in sirihish,
  "...oh."

At your seat, a female voice whispers, in sirihish,
  "They fill us to the brim every day, but when the lights go off, everything drains out."
At your seat, a female voice whispers, kindly, in sirihish,
  "It's safer that way. You see that now."

At you seat, hurriedly, you say, in sirihish,
  "Oh, well, yeah."

The bed shakes slightly as someone rocks back and forth.

At your seat, a female voice whispers, a commanding tone coming through the breathy hiss, in sirihish,
  "Stop telling tales, Laura. Give the boy lollipops or hardtack, but not these muddled half-truths."
Someone looks at you.

Someone looks at you.

Okay...

So here recently, I stopped talking to a girl I've been involved with since August.

This prompted me, in part thanks to the suggestion of another Armer *coughcough Sephiroto cough* to check out an online dating site, OkCupid.

To stave off loneliness, I tried out this OkCupid site for a while.  Fooled around with it for a couple of weeks, talking on and off with hambeasts and other unsavory girls.  Well, I finally found one that was kind've cute last week, and she doesn't live too far away, so I gave her my number Thursday and told her to call me, and that we would figure something out.

Okay... Saturday morning rolls around, and I am totally tripping on acid.  During all that, this girl from OkCupid calls me.  In the course of the very weird conversation, she mentions that she's stripped before, and that made it ten kinds of weird, especially considering the acid.  When she starts talking about stripping, I say to her, freaking out: "Ummmm, is it okay to talk about this?"  It's like that Bloodhound Gang song, "The Lap Dance is So Much Better When the Stripper is Crying" started playing in my head, and I couldn't shake the image of her shaking her tits for baby formula out of my mind.  Anyway, I awkwardly disengage from the conversation and go back to tripping my balls off.

Sunday, she calls again, and I apologize for wigging out, telling her that I had been totally tripping on acid.  She then proceeds to tell me that she mainly dates like older dudes, dudes between their 30s and 50s, and I get weirded out again, only this time I'm sober.  But she still wants to see me that night.  At seven.

Well, I get bored during the day and wander over to another apartment building to smoke with the ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL GIRL WHO IS A TEN AND IS AMAZING.

We sit around talking for a long time, until a mutual acquaintance, this neighbor dude that has a crush on her, stops in.  He stops in, is obviously awkward and jealous that I'm there, leaves, and then comes back, making everything really weird.

So I leave and go back to my place, just laying there or like an hour or so, thinking mainly about how great it would be to touch a vagina.  Eventually, it gets to me, and I, though scared as hell, send this girl a text asking her to come watch a movie with me.  Initially, she tells me that her hair's wet and it's cold outside.  Somehow I fight back the impulse to crack a joke about making her really wet, because I'm just classy like that.  I say nothing, and she sends me another text 20 minutes later asking what kind of movies I have.

Chhhaaaaa chinnggggg.

So she comes over and watches Gattaca with me, and as this rocket ship is taking off toward Saturn's twelfth moon (this is how I would like to remember it anyway), we begin to kiss, leaving thoughts of the weird internet stripper girl and the awkward jealous infatuated neighbor in the dust.  The girl from OkCupid did send some me some weird texts asking what my excuse is, and I've yet to reply. 

I don't think I will, either.

Yeah, sorry, tortall I was just being drunk and surly. I know OKC can be a valid resource, but god damn it, I always get this feeling of resignation when I use something like that. It's like my pride takes a kick to the balls every time I use such a site, and not because of whatever responses I may or may not receive; the simple of act using the site is what can make me feel cruddy and weird and awkward, and well it's hard to say exactly why this is true.  Iiiiiiii dunno.  I do think that as our lives and the internet continue to integrate sites such as OKC will not only be more socially acceptable, but might even become the norm.  To me that doesn't seem good or bad but maybe just a natural product of where we're going and what we're doing as a culture.  But what do I know.

Lizzie, you should  really listen to what Anis Mojgani has to say about picking noses  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFWiNNUfpC4&feature=PlayList&p=1EE782AE30D58C3E&index=0).  You'll be enlightened.  Maybe.

Post by: Sephiroto on February 15, 2010, 05:12:26 PM
I met my girl(friend) on OKC and I spent my first Valentines day with a woman ever this weekend.  It was different, yet great.  To me, though, there was nothing special about the fact that it was Feb. 14th.  I was just happy to be with her.

Anyway, I used to feel uneasy about online dating (and normal dating).  Both of them take some getting used to.  Eventually I found that online dating is very normal up here, at least in my community.  There are still some people who either a) live in the Dark Ages of relationships and dating or b) are "above" online dating.  I have no sympathy for the latter and, in general, and find I wouldn't want to date someone who isn't open to meeting someone online anyhow.

Online dating is a good way to meet people who are looking for the same thing as you.  That is why it is important to be honest.  People are just as flaky online as they are in person, but roving profiles makes it easier to narrow your search.  Communication online is only a precursor to dating.  Just because you meet someone amazing online, that doesn't mean they'll be great in person.  The same can be said in reverse.  I, for instance, am a bastard on the GDB quite frequently but am usually well recieved by most of the Armers I meet (or at least am less of a bastard  ;))

I understand why people have reservations about online dating.  This is reinforced by the fact that even those veteran to meeting folks online still have issues with creeps, weirdos, and awkwardness.

...I lost my train of thought here but I'll leave you with some words of advice.  You never win if you don't try.  Every failed date and relationship is a chance to learn about yourself and other people.  Relationships are always work and always require compromise.  Don't be discouraged by the shit you see on TV.  It's easy to get excited over a 2 hour movie, but life is measured in days, months, and years.  The excitement easily fades.  Be happy with the simple things.

The thing about the internet is that it can't teach you to interact normally with other human beings.

One interesting thing to wonder about is webcam-based interaction as a medium through which people typically isolated from others might sharpen essential communication skills. Mainly, I'm talking about in a romantic sense, but I think it could be applicable in broader terms as well.

No, I'm not saying webcams will teach you how to make small talk as you smoke a cigarette with strangers, nor am I saying this kind of technology will give you insight as to how to approach that fine ass member of the opposite sex in your Physics IX class, but to me it seems true that non-text-based interaction (over the internets) with others could possibly help out some folks.  But ultimately, you're right: just like blow up dolls and fleshlights (fantasy writer), it's a far cry from the real deal.

Still, I can't help but to imagine a world where we have web-based cottage industries raking in big bucks by teaching folks how to, well, interact normally with other human beings.  I'm tempted to cite that whole Pickup Artist phenomenon as an example of this, but, well, hah, the type of interaction they claim to instruct doesn't seem very normal to me.

It's a neat to wonder about, if anything.
Title: Re: I went on a date..
Post by: a strange shadow on February 15, 2010, 09:13:26 PM
It is neat to wonder about, but also kind of frightening and depressing. It is also true that webcam interaction is much closer to "RL" interaction than chats or otherwise textual communication, but it also carries with it a sense of exploitation and/or risk for some people that might not be there in face-to-face interactions (screencaps, recordings, etc).

I think as we move more and more to a social "2.0" internet, this issue's going to come up with equal frequency. It'll be interesting, at least.

No offense Kronibas, but if you're drunk/high/tripping/on god knows what else as much of the time as you seem to be (going by your posts here), I really can't see that holding a girl's woman's interest for very long unless you find a girl that enjoys spending the majority of her free time just as intoxicated.




On the related topic of Valentine's Day, I don't need some trumped up capitalist holiday to show my significant other that I care about him, and I certainly don't expect him to waste all sorts of money he doesn't have on overpriced crap that I don't really have any use for.

You know, if you're careful, then you're apt to be able to do what you sometimes enjoy doing - be it singing too loud in church, stuffing your face with confections (here, i namely refer to cake), drinking your wine, or whatever - without dissolving into a dysfunctional blight on society who never makes any contributions to society or establishes  substantial connections with other human beings. I might be so bold as to say I'm living proof. You just might be, too.

I guess it was the hustle and bustle of the weekend that threw me off track, but I'm returning with neither cake nor a sad story.  I do have a story, one about Saturday night, that's fairly normal.

On Saturday night I was supposed to take out this random hooker I picked up on Craiglist but instead I broke into the pound, stole two dozen kittens, and proceeded to eat their eyes out in a seedy apartment in the hood, all because I of that god damned P C P. On Saturday night I took Gattaca girl/concert tickets girl to a movie, The Wolf Man, which she didn't want to see because it reminded her of her hirsute alcoholic-heroin-addict-father who used to howl deliriously when he shot up coke and 'ludes into his nipples which he had to do on account of all the hair she was afraid it might be too scary.  We arrived late because I kept making her stop at every other gas station so I could shoot up ecstasy and weed she took her sweet time getting ready.

But it wasn't the kind of late that prevented you from sneaking into the bathroom to do a few lines off the toilet seat because you have a reckless disregard for personal hygiene and infectious diseases having enough time to buy the twelve dollar SUPER DELUXE REFILLABLE COMBO, lightly buttered, please.  The worst part was the packed theater.  If there were more than three sets of empty paired seats available, I didn't see them.  I led her up the stairs and told so chubby kid sitting between two empty seats to move the fuck over or I'd bust him a good one in his precious little butter-smeared maw because I get violent and surly after drinking Everclear which I had been doing all night long please scoot over a seat, thanks.  He obliged with a little whimper and I shouted at him "That's right you manky little douchebag shit monger you had best move cause I'm schizophrenic and we mean business we slid into our seats and watched the trailers that had already started.  

The movie was decent.  I sat there thinking about how I might most effectively sneak administer IV opiates without drawing her attention... since it was dark I figured my odds were fifty fifty reach over and hold her hand.  You know, when you're just getting used to someone, hand holding can be downright fucking terrifying.  It's silly to remember how mortified I was, especially considering the absolute lack of protest I received when I slid my hand under her furry-hooded Abercrombie jacket and started to fondle her crotch because my amoral lifestyle had by then completely eroded any sense of social appropriateness took her tiny little fingers in my own, clasping them at first like I was Sylvester Stallone in Cliffhanger but then later very loosely with slow rubbing motions like I was Sylvester Stallone in... shit, I didn't think my clever simile all the way through.


After the movie was over, I rappelled down the side of the stadium seating so I could beat everyone else to the bathroom to do more lines off the toilet seat.
 After the movie was over, we went back and ate Snickerdoodles and drank red wine - I had bought two bottles of Red Bicyclette earlier in the day, making sure not to put them in the fridge this time like I had done when we first started hanging out.  She had poked fun at me for chilling the red wine and my only defense was that I grew up in a trailer and the only wine that we ever drank came in a box, darlin.  The Snickerdoodle/wine combo might seem weird but we were stoned on high potency weed so it was really just whatever.

She drew me a sunshine and I put it up on my ever-growing Wall of Love when I got home.  You know, I think I'll even share:

(http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b315/thesmallclyde/sunshine-1.jpg?t=1266331812)

The small poster centered in my weak little Love Wall is a pretty cliche Andy Warhol print redeemed only by the message it carries:

I think everybody should like everybody.

Sometimes I believe in that little string of words more strongly than I do at other times.



and, just kidding.


Of course there will be cake:

Okay.

So my friend who's a DJ landed a gig at a private party.

I smoke **** and ****** **** with this beautiful girl.

We hang out a couple of times, smoke and get to know one another.  Well.


She's over at my place and I'm showing her some underlined sections of a Bukowski book I really dig (can you dig it?), and I take that opportunity to kiss her.

And as things get steamy she (blond, 18 years old) tells me (paraphrasing):  Look, there aren't a lot of guys like you around here... I want to fuck you so bad, but


I have herpes, she said.


At least she was honest, right?

She's young and hot.  I should sit her down one-on-one and ask her legitimately if she has the herpes;
a full cavity search might even be necessary.

But really, she's hot like burgers from Wendy's...

I started the night by going to a pub with my ex.  We chatted about my recent trip to the states and all the internet people I met.

She and I dated for 3 years (2004 - 2007) while I was playing ArmageddonMUD and she recognized some people's usernames that I mentioned.

She was surprised at the closeness of the Armageddon community and the friends that I've acquired over the years.

Then, her boyfriend came in and asked me if I was going to purchase some drums, which I haven't decided yet.  The conversation shifted to making coffee and stupid customers from the coffee shop, so I decided it was time to move on.

I went to a club called IX, and met my coworkers and the girl employees from the cellphone store across the hall.  We got bottle service and started dancing.

This girl walks up to me and we start chatting about life, and she offers to buy me a shot.  I say Jager and she frowns at me, so she gets two sambuca shots.

I say, "Salut!" and down it.  She says, "watch this" and puts it in her mouth, and then lights her mouth on FIRE.

I got intimated.

Look on the bright side... you only read about them.

Back to the topic of the OP - it's always worthwhile clarifying with the person so there's no confusion. Poor communication is a chronic condition of humans, so be thoughtful and honest with that lineup of guys waiting to ask you out. If you want to hang out, give them as much advanced notice that you only want to hang out with them. Plus... angering a member of the Norris family is always a bad idea, I'm guessing that while Chuck is the Anakin Skywalker of martial power in the family, that it has percolated down to others as well.

Well it has been some time now since I appalled you away with my ventures into the seedy world of dating drugs and sex, so allow me to share a little story.



Recently I was hanging around with this purple haired art major six years my junior (holy fuck she was born in 1991...) I totally would have dated her, but when I was about to fuck her she busted out with: "I'm sorry, but I have herpes."  And I really appreciated that.  But she could have at least lied and said she was on the rag?  Whatever, I was grateful for being told instead of catching some shit that won't wash off.  Still, she did this crying, and I decided to remain friends with her, because I'm not the sort of douche who cuts off awesome girls just because they can't stick their penis in them; as you will read, this strategy often proves beneficial.  Restraining your douchebag masculine Will to Sex just a smidge sometimes pays off, as you will read.  I would take her to the pool and in general have a good time.  Through her, I met her friend (and now my friend) K.


K added me on Facebook and I was surprised.  K and I have actually lived in the same apartment building for a YEAR but didn't meet until she approached my herpes-ridden friend and I in the parking lot and struck up a conversation.  So, I introduced myself and after being added by her on Facebook (I'm not sure how she found out my last name, but whatever) I asked her to come to the pool with me.


Fast forward three days from that point.  A naked girl with huge tits is cleaning my apartment, buying me shit, and doing things like telling her parents that she's "met someone."


FUCK YES.


To reiterate:  Cleaning, financial contributions, blowjobs, AND GET THIS:


I CONVINCED HER TO SMOKE HER FIRST JOINT... AND IT WAS OF DANK ASS PURPLE WEED.


GOD BLESS AMERICA




and god bless bouncing breast,

amen.

Thanks man.  If she keeps up that kinda thing and is able to put up with my nutty little ass then I will enslave her and keep her in my basement as a love puppet marry her.  I don't think I could ask for much more in life, unless it was a girlfriend who grows weed and has an advanced degree in chemistry.  But I've already told her about my plans to move to Cali and take full advantage of Prop 215 and hopefully Prop 19, and she didn't run out of the room screaming in horror and was actually EXCITED by my far-flung dope fantasies.

But she did tell me not to say God Damn around her, and she's a Christian who goes to church whereas I am the antichrist, so that might prove to be problematic.

Here's the thing: remember the movie War Games. Right? Remember the part where the computer is trying to guess its own launch code?  It's, like, a bunch of digits, and there's a limit to the number of combinations it can check per second (practical, if not explicit).  Even for a computer--in 1988--that should take a long enough time for somebody to run around the country with wire cutters and emasculate the thing.

The problem is, when the computer guesses a digit correctly, it gets to keep it.  This dramatically reduces the complexity of the problem.

99% of people making intuitive arguments against evolution don't seem to understand that evolution is closer to the keep-a-digit problem than the win-the-powerball problem.  Which is not encouraging.  We need a better class of naysayer.

By your logic, half of the fornicatable population already has it and won't care, and a substantial portion of the other half will, like you, think it's not a big deal.

The remaining minority prob'ly ought to understand what they're getting into.

It turns out that she IS AGAINST SPELLS AND MAGIC AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE.  After I made the mistake of laughing a little at
that (sorta drunk?), I was asked to explain my religious beliefs, and I went into full evasive maneuvers.

We eventually agreed to just not talk about religion.  Have I mentioned I hate religion?  This is why.  Because it brainwashes beautiful

Zoltan, you really have to take into consideration that I live in the BUCKLE of the Bible Belt (fucking RURAL Mississippi - I am a mutated ravenous redneck dopewolf from the woods; never forget that).  Most of the girls I'm surrounded by will claim Christianity - even if they don't go to church and even if their opinions about all that are halfassed remnants of childhood mind-molding fear tactics originally implemented to control them.

As long as that Jesus stuff doesn't get in the way of me being able to smoke bud around her - and it hasn't so far - then I think I can handle it.


But then, well, I mean you HAVE to think about children with any sort of investment like this, and for me that is where the real problems might emerge.

I don't want my kids to be told lies about gods coming down to earth by my wife or anyone else.


Part of me, though, thinks I can work around that.  I'm stubborn like that I guess.

Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance. If the dispositions of the parties are ever so well known to each other or ever so similar beforehand, it does not advance their felicity in the least. They always continue to grow sufficiently unlike afterwards to have their share of vexation; and it is better to know as little as possible of the defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life.

You aren't kidding. I'd never met so many fucked up people until I moved from upstate NY down to North Cackalack. After a few mishaps in dating down here, I absolutely refuse to see a native North Carolinian. Good thing I'm in a stable and relatively healthy relationship with someone who moved back here (to be closer to my ma) with me and can fend off the crazy Bible thumpers with my, "I don't go to Church and I'm fucking my boyfriend," line.

Hey, not everyone in the Deep South is crazy (or a bible thumper). I do know exactly what everyone, including Kronibas is talking about, though. I've seen plenty like it. Rural Arkansas and rural Mississippi are pretty similar.(I'm secretly surprised that North Carolina is as bad)

As far as the religious thing goes, you can work at it. My best friend married a girl from a -very- strict Baptist family. He's not religious at all, but managed to make progress by simply not pushing her into things. I think leaving atheist literature around would probably put her on the defensive, because I've seen it before. When you confront them, they get defensive and won't give an inch. Showing you're a decent person even as you break their religious rules and making things available for them to try, well that seems to make more progress.

The environment in the bible belt is such that after a few failed attempts in high school due to most people either being a religious nut or far too out of hand, I avoided dating until going to college. China was also a good choice, there are very few religious nuts there. Unfortunately I had to come home to finish school.  :-\

The D.C./Baltimroe area is a good place to find a good woman/man.

But man, how'd you end up in China?  How could it be a good place to meet people?  Enlighten us, please.

Well, how I ended up there is easy. I studied Chinese at my university in Arkansas for a year, and applied to study abroad. Loaded down with scholarships, I made it pretty easily over there and set up shop in Chengdu, Sichuan Province's capital. I lived on campus, and met a Chinese girl that didn't seem like all she wanted from me was money after about two weeks in the city. (that's her in the picture with me on the player photos site)

Anyway, I guess I should say that it's a good place to meet people for me, being a white guy who can speak Chinese (Got enough to have a minor in it now if I take a literature course in it I believe). I picked up the language quickly by studying hard outside of class for about the first month, taking nine hours of Chinese each week, and hanging out with Chinese people all day. Being somewhat familiar with the culture and country (Asian studies minor) helped a LOT. The Chinese are proud of their history, and being a history major with a focus on China just scored me more points. I was seen as a white American (already instantly pretty sought after) who not only had a grasp of the language and culture, but had a genuine interest in the country and its people.

So, I dated that girl for seven months during the school year until I returned. To be completely honest, things got kind of crappy between us at the end because I just couldn't make her happy and she had issues with getting close to men because of past relationship problems. It was one of those damned if you do damned if you don't things. I later talked to a psychologist and described the situation, and was told that I didn't do anything wrong and that it was her issues that were causing the problems.

There are, however, things to watch out for: In some parts of China, especially away from the coasts, women who date American men are seen as loose and looking for money. Chinese men, especially older ones, sometimes resent American men taking Chinese women. Chinese women -will- come after American men just because they have money, but this is not a hard and fast rule, there are plenty of good ones just like anywhere else. Chinese culture leans heavily towards favoring those with money, which many people have a hard time with.

That being said, my ex-girlfriend was from a rural area, poor but not destitute, and absolutely not interested in me for my money...she knows I didn't have much. And for those of you who think I was planning to just up and leave her when the school-year was over, that would be incorrect. My initial plan was to stay, but things just didn't work out.

Edited to add: Probably overdid it a little, but it was late.  :-[

I spent two years as a single man. Admitidly, age 20-22, you don't really need a girl or man all that much, but it's doable.

My friend has now been single for 5 years (He's just turned 30) and has only just started dating a woman. He was quite happy with his single life.

I met one of my closest friends to date, sort of, that way. I searched for Native American as a race, found a cute guy, saw he had a girlfriend, and man -- I was briefly like, "dammit!", but then we ended up growing really close and he said I've always been a good omen to him, because he met his girlfriend around the same time as we started to be friends! We've been close ever since, giving one another advice and stuff. I want to go visit him this fall, but I'm not sure my boyfriend would dig double dates in Brooklyn. Har.

And I can never go to okcupid.com ever again. It's creepier than myspace.

I went on a date to Atlanta.

First time I had ever been out with this girl, a 6' half-Mexican beauty.

We saw Sound Tribe Sector 9 in Atlanta.

I slept in Tortall's basement.

Ender was our guide through Atlanta, which was awesome, otherwise I'd have been lost as hell.



1st Date Verdict:

I got laid and drunk and stoned as shit, and for me that's like a pig in a sty.

So:  Success.


It's funny.  I can't help but to think back on a previous date entry where someone said something
about not being able to get good dates if you dabble in the darker realms of gettin lit.

But dear Jesus, let me tell you:

There are beautiful women who enjoy marijuana.  Especially

ESPECIALLY

ESPECIALLY

...if you smoke nothing be the finest.


peace love and afro grease.

Well,

she:

1.  Threatened to call the cops on my room mate and I, and there may or may not have been a plant inside the house that we rather would have kept secret.  But because she did that we had to cut some shit down.

2.  She told me she threw away the things I had left there, including two prescription sheets for schedule II narcotics.

3.  She sat on my front porch and wouldn't leave until I came outside and told her to GTFO, and even it was problematic.

4.  She threatened to commit suicide.  Twice.

5.  She liked being treated like a little dirty slut during sex and insisted on being choked, and look - LOOK, THAT IS COOL - but not every stinking time I fuck you.
 



Turns out, she was prescribed to Prozac.  I watched Prozac Nation during this on the advice of my roommate who had also dated a girl on Prozac and was amazed at the parallels.

Please don't pin me as the matronly icky girl here, but a LOT of schedule IIs are far worse than a small dose of prozac. Some people are prescribed prozac for nerve pain or for PMDD for short spurts. Now, the higher MGs you go on Prozac ... that's debatable. But those CIIs I hand out nearly every day for 90% of the families in the community I live in? Now -that- is ridiculous.

I'm not trying to be a ho or anything to you, Kroni, I don't even know what you're on. I'm just saying, most of that shit, nearly ALL prescriptions are just so fuckin' bad for you. I tapered myself off of Cymbalta recently, which I was prescribed for nerve pain because I told my doc I refuse to go onto pain pills of any sort; that was a NIGHTMARE. I wasn't myself on the Cymbalta; it made me manic as a mofugga, it made my nerve endings actually a lot -worse- than better, and stopping cold turkey? I bet I could stop cigarettes (if I smoked them) far easier. I've never had my brain -spasm- before. It clinched and then my whole body felt like it was having a seizure, almost.

It's all horrible shit for you. Antibiotics are pretty bad, unless you really need them. Nowadays they have to prescribe hugely expensive, brand name only antibiotics for SINUS infections, because they overuse them so much! Antidepressants are wretched. The pain pills can screw up your liver and addict you in a snap. The BP pills all have horrid side effects (migraines, incessant cough, WTF?)

Agh. Before I go any further and offend the hell out of someone, I'll stop. It's just, working 3 years in a pharmacy has just totally skewed my opinion on drugs. I hate Michael Savage's politics, but I love his thoughts on being healthy naturally.

Based on observation, a third to half the people on my 5k employee campus are women. Half that are in their twenties and thirties. A good portion of them are seriously cute. Unknown on the married/single ratio.

Hey, my schedule II was adderall.

Which I only take on road trips, cramming, or when I get really drunk.


I do not take my prescribed 40mg a day, nor do I take that junk except "as needed."



I think medications that require you to take them every day, like Zoloft (which i took from 19-21, being 25 now), are BULLSHIT because if you miss a day your neuro-chemistry is FUCKED.

I don't have a very scientific understanding of dope.  I don't.  But I know that Adderall won't fuck you up as bad as Prozac will.  Well, maybe if you took 40mg of that shit a day it would, but I dunno.


Anyway, watch this movie called Prozac Nation.  If you think that shit is okay after watching the film, then well... that's cool too.


As for myself, I'll stick with medicine I can take "as needed."

Except marijuana, cigarettes, and Diet Coke.  Those are a welcome daily necessity. ;D

Title: Re: I went on a date..
Post by: Kronibas on September 08, 2010, 02:11:01 PM
My understanding of SSRIs is that they stabilize your serotonin levels by inhibiting the breakdown of serotonin.  Unfortunately - from what I've read - this process takes a while and establishes a serotonin-oriented equilibrium of sorts.  To me, it seems clear that when this equilibrium is disrupted by altering your dose, well, there will be changes.

[personal experience]

If one is on SSRIs long enough, particularly Sertraline (brand name: Zoloft), they most definitely suffer at least one acute and undeniable physical symptom when even a gradual withdrawal process begins.


The main withdrawal symptom is something I can articulate only as a very short but very noticeable electrical discharge surging through one's brain.  One can feel this sensation as soon as a couple of days off the drug if their brainz have been saturated with the crap, and when you finally begin the weening process these discharges are liable to be intense.


I never noticed violent or erratic mood swings when I was on sertraline.  Umm, I do not believe the girl I dated can say the same about Prozac.  She kept swearing over and over that she would change her medicine and that it really fucked with her, but if she didn't take it she was ill and weird.

She was most certainly irritable, whiney, and really just downright mean when she didn't take her stuff first thing in the morning.

[/personal experience]

Maybe Prozac is just a scapegoat for intense but 'natural' psychotic behavior.  Maybe it acts as a catalyst serving to amplify that girl's insanity.

I dunno.  I'm not trying to pigeonhole all SSRIs as pills that drive you fuckin crazy, dude, but after being around that girl and watching 'Prozac Nation' on the advice of a roommate who once dated a girl prescribed to Prozac, I can't help but to think that such shit has the potential to induce some

really

fucking

nasty


behavior in human beings.


but hey, I guess all drugs do.

I think your ex was just a crazy biatch, with or without the Prozac.

The elimination half-life of Prozac averages 2-3 days, so it's extremely unlikely she was being bitchy in the morning merely because she hadn't taken a pill for 8 hours.
