One of my female friends in particular absolutely terrifies the poo poo out of men (and a lot of women), so I've never introduced any man friends to her.

Wait what? What's her story?

Curdy Lemonstan posted:

Its absolutely okay to control your social circles. The guy described was totally weird about it though.

My friend is dating a guy who, in the early days of their relationship, instructed her not to make their status obvious at their gaming group thing because nerd cliques are ticking timebombs for stupid childish drama. I told her to call him out on that bullshit but she defended it by going on about how friends are hard for her to make/keep and other such nerd social fallacy stuff we've all heard before. They've been together for like 8 years now. We hang out sometimes and he's (well, both are) goon central but he's actually super nice and doesn't do the controlling stuff anymore.

What I don't get is that if, as a guy, you don't actually want to be friends with women and think the only reason to date is for sex . . . why not just masturbate? Masturbation is awesome. Easy orgasms without any negotiation or drama. Why get bitter about how hard it is to get a lady to help you have orgasms when orgasms are so easy to have without one? Lefty and Righty never let you down.

I was baffled and stayed polite, but I was thinking: "It's an MMO. You don't know what country I'm in. My age. You don't even now if I"m really a girl, or just a guy with a feminine name. I could be fat, hairy, wall-eyed, be covered in burn scars and have a penis. Why is this guy getting bent out of shape over a 'girl' he knows literally nothing about?"

Wait, i never read his manifesto. Did he really get pissed off that saying "Hey mom, go gently caress a rich guy so we can have money" didn't work in his favor?

it contains a bunch of neat stuff, like incestuous voyeurism!

I arrived at the house one day, my mother being at work, and heard the sounds of Samuel plunging his penis into my sister’s vagina through her closed room door, along with my sister’s moans. I stood there and listened to it all. So my sister, who was four years younger than me, managed to lose her virginity before I did. It reminded me of how pathetic I was, that at the age of twenty-two, I was still a virgin.

or maybe some women have had really lovely past experiences with men, which is a very common phenomenon from what I gather, and it affected how they trust or perceive the intentions of strangers? I dunno it doesn't seem very complicated to me

or did you just ignore all the stories about and texts of men posted itt being aggressive and violent because a girl had the audacity to not be interested in them?

Pot Of Shoe posted:

I have had experiences with abuse from men from the time I was 14 up until about 3 years ago. Nothing as serious as a rape thank god, but there have been times when a creeper has scared me or a boyfriend has gotten violent, or I've dealt with aggressive guys online who can't take a hint, or a rejected guy who won't stop contacting me. I don't let that color my whole opinion of an entire gender just as I hope guys with bad experiences with women don't do the same. It's almost like you have to take everyone on a person by person basis.

There is nothing wrong being aware of where you are and who is with you, and I can appreciate the statistics that are out there, and of course women who are abused react differently and need different things to help them recover and they should have that time and those resources. But closing yourself off and making judgments about new individuals based on the misbehaviour of others in the past is a good way to become bitter.

Hey it's great that you don't seem to have those kind of hangups! I'm not saying the vigilance and anxiety around men is necessarily right or wrong, I'm just saying it's easy to see why it happens.

from an evolutionary standpoint, why is it necessary for use to reproduce sexually rather than asexually? was it so hard for nature to have sapient organisms that also reproduce via budding?

Sexual reproduction is beneficial because it introduces variation to the genepool so if you happen to have a genome that makes you vulnerable to a certain disease/chemical/whatever it won't make your pathetic species extinct.

Wouldn't it be pretty hard to reproductively outpace a species that actively enjoys the pleasure of sex

define "outpace" because humans have a gestation period of none months and take nearly 20 years to become sexually mature.

compare to the humble bedbug which matures in two months, can lay hundreds of eggs in its lifetime, and reproduces exclusively by males stabbing females in the gut with their stiletto dicks because females evolved to have a plugged up birth canal to prevent unwanted matings but evolution is a fucker like that.

It's the only time I agree with the don't ask, don't tell policy. gently caress babies who want to hold poo poo against you from when you didn't even know them.


In high school I went on a couple of dates with a girl that was known by literally everyone in the surrounding towns (I grew up in a rural area where kids from seven towns would go to the same school) as a girl who really got around and one guy said to me "Dude if you kissed her do you have any idea how many cocks you sucked!??"

I was like okay whatever. I mean I knew she dated and probably banged a lot of dudes but I was more disturbed by the implication that she hadn't brushed her teeth in years.

Then I dated a girl with a similar reputation for like eight months and that same guy said he once asked her to blow him for a bag of Cheetos. Rumor has it that she did it but I didn't bother to ask her to verify because she was my girlfriend and that would be rude.

I think there was like, maybe one time where I took a girl out and she expected me to pay. It was a cocktail bar too, so the tab was like $75 and she got pissed at me for suggesting we split the bill. She said "Oh I didn't bring any money" and I told her she better go get some. That liar had money after all.

One of the girls I worked with last year told me she went to a bar and a stranger walked up to her and took out his phone and proceeded to show her his bank account she was like "Are you kidding me right now?" and ignored him but as the night went on she kept going to him asking him to buy her drinks because she knew he could afford it and he'd loving do it no questions asked lmao

Stories like that always crop up around high school girls. Doesn't matter. Nothing teenagers say is real and even if it was everyone has slutty phases.

I can sorta get being wary of dating a girl who instantly jumped your bones if you've ever been cheated on and you're worried about it happening again. But you just gotta trust her if a relationship is getting serious unless something happens that gives you good reason not to. Dudes will have sex on the first date no problem, but that doesn't men them instant cheaters.

I mean I'm pretty sure there was a lot of truth behind those stories for both girls. The second one (my first girlfriend) kinda had hosed up social and self worth issues because her family were Salvation Army captains and moved to/from like 7 different towns growing up as they kept getting restationed or whatever it is they do in that weird church. A lot of people were really mean to her just because she was weird and a new kid.

Maybe this is confirmation bias but I feel like socially awkward girls get way shittier treatment in rural areas than awkward dudes do. All of the girls hated her and didn't want her around so she hung out with all of us nerdy rejects even though we had nothing in common. I feel like the only reason we started dating at all is because I was one of the few guys that was actually nice to her

In the end she broke up with me after loving a dude at the church camp she was working at that summer

Don't have dinner on first dates. It's too formal for anyone to be really comfortable. Do something fun instead. But holy poo poo goons if you do have dinner then pay for it you tightwad.

Yeah, if you want to sit down and eat/drink then go to a pub or a cafe. Also don't go to movies for first dates. I keep telling people that is a stupid idea but they always do it.

I hooked up with this one girl in college a couple of times. It didn't really go anywhere but we became friends and hung out every now and then. Once we went to a bar and she ordered a pitcher of beer for us. I only had one glass because I was driving and when the barmaid handed her a glass she just shook her head an pushed it away and proceeded to drink straight from the pitcher. She was pretty rad

One dude at the bar decided to order shots (all Pornstars) to everyone in an attempt to impress a couple of girls. He must have dropped like $60 on that one round and shortly after the girls he was talking to just left the bar to go somewhere else lol.
