Why do all these threads become anti-woman..

"Cuz they are such beeotches". (JK!!!!!!) I like ladies. They make good dinners so i can watch my racing and I can have nice, clean, pressed clothes ready for me in the morning.

Tattooed, half naked in public, jumping into the sack with at the drop of a hat... Loud, uncouth, unclean, unnatural, unfeminine, tattoos, bastard children in tow, drug dependent and a potential carrier of STDs...

Ain't it the truth! I am certainly not in the market, but when I see a female with tattoos or piercings, the words "venereal disease" pops into my head.

Whew...didn't need to see THAT!! But yes, either physically, or in some cases the mindset.

And beer tastes better when a woman brings it to you.

I just think "low class", for either sex with them --- definitely not just females.

Not a huge leap at all, just experience and clarity. The truth comes out in the wash - a person who is consistently rejected isn't rejected by a series of people because they are a fantastic catch. That makes no sense at all, though may provide comfort to the rejected.

There are always isolated cases, and there are some personality types that aren't looking for a good companion but for a fast time. But if a person is consistently overlooked by otherwise good people, it's time for them to adjust.

Glad it worked out. I just don't want to deal with that kind of dynamic, and since I don't have to, all is good.

I don't buy into the nice guy/jerk paradigm. Women tend to want a good, masculine man. An excessively nice, too accommodating male comes across as less than masculine and is rejected by women, regardless of how stable he is.

So, how does a man stay masculine enough within a marriage to sustain a wife's interest when it comes time to do the dishes, clean the cat-box, etc?

The problem with most guys is they look for women in all the wrong places.

This might be the crux for both sexes. The single guys I know mostly look at church, at work, in political and professional associations, neigbors, and the associates of those above. They do not look at parties, at bars, etc because they know that they lack a life-of-the-party personality and do not come accross well at parties.

Most women I know do not look at co-workers, or church, or professional associations. They go to parties and dances and are attracted to the life-of-the-party, who is usually an irresponsible drunk.

Tucked in her considerable cleavage so the glass bottle isn't too cold and wet on my hands after coming right out of the 32 degree beer fridge. < /MCP mode >

Seeing as how I just got Mrs. Slim a shotgun, I'm glad she's not into following fads like this.

From the comments posted on this thread, no woman in her right mind would date, let alone marry or stay married to some of these losers.

These threads usually become anti-woman because there is a pocket of angry FR men who women won't give the time of day. Rather than consider personal change, they came to the conclusion that all women must suck, since why else would they all reject them?

It's strange.

There is no shortage at all of attractive, young, quality women in the dating pool. Guys who go on and on about how much women suck just lose me.

We could go into more descriptive detail, but this isn't that kind of forum, and besides, we wouldn't want to enourage any unwelcome Helen Thomas photos.
