[QUOTE=bloodorchid;1122568]i have a hard time taking you seriously right now because you're painting 'bitches be crazy' generalizations onto every woman when that's just not realistic[/QUOTE]
Now now, he may be on to something....
[QUOTE=wiltondeportes;1122557]This is la-la land. Why don't you:
a) go down to the local college
b) find the chess, math, and physics clubs
c) poll them for sex frequency
d) go find the football and basketball teams
e) poll them for sex frequency
I would be really curious to see who comes out on top.[/QUOTE]
Your point being? That how much sex various special young adult interest groups have at university is in some way a measure of what? Worth? Self-respect? Self-discipline? Winning at life? How much they will win at life in thirty years time?
And the corollary, does this mean that someone who doesn't have sex with ANYBODY while they are university is somehow a loser or failure?
Have you ever considered that when we make decisions we are often chosing between immediate short term gratification, and delayed long term gratification? It's a pet theory of mine that 'wisdom' is actually code for the ability (which can be learned) to consistently choose the best long term outcome.
[QUOTE=Allenete;1122574]I fail to see what this has got to do with my point. But why don't you:
a) grow up[B] (this will happen, it just takes time)[/B]
b) eat some humble pie [B](this is the internets, good luck with that)[/B]
c) talk to a real woman [B](he already knows how to do that, and doesn't understand your codified message that women are people too and don't appreciate being objectified, and that being in a relationship with another person involves the opinion and ego of another person to get taken into account)[/B]
d) get laid [B](THATS THE WHOLE PROBLEM. He never would have had to make this thread if it was as easy as that for supra geniuses)[/B][/QUOTE]
d, the solutions to all life's problems!

[QUOTE=bloodorchid;1122584]you hush that before i unleash my inner feminazi[/QUOTE]
Are you saying that I wouldn't like that? Or that I [B]would[/B] like that?
p.s. we are talking about bsdm right?
a man-hating feminazi who would tear anything with a penis DOWN and raise any misbegotten baby boys to feel guilt over the plight of women everywhere
but hey, that could count as sadism and some guys are into that ;)
Haha yo Wilton I started out on your side but at this point you are way out on that limb bro and it'd be death to us both for me to venture to your side!
My understanding is that high IQ in men is not associated with a decreased rate of marriage or coupling.
However, there is an inverse correlation between IQ and likelihood of marriage for women.
So relax. Try to find value in the people around you. Learn from them. They likely have forms of intelligence that you do not possess and vice verse. Put your chocolate in their peanut butter and make your whole greater than the sum or your parts :)

Go tell a rhino it's fat. See what it does to you... You tell it a truth, and it wants to buck you for it.
All I said at the beginning was that smart guys have a tougher time finding ladies because for an actual partner to be their equal, they need to be smart too. Then, you look at the class of smart women, and it's stratified with all sorts of reasons that they might not be available. (Readers might not understand this in it's totality, so let's consider the opposite situation. Take a woman of lower intelligence. Isn't she going to have a whole lot less going on in her life? Wouldn't that make her more available to men? Let's continue.) So then women came out of the woodwork calling me an arrogant prick and saying that women love intelligence, which is truly one of the bigger lies about men/female relations in recent years. Being a true nerd has never been sexy. Power that nerd eventually achieves might be sexy, but women aren't interested until that happens.
Now we're off on this tangent about emotional differences between men and women. It's rough waters for a sailor in a sea of women. I will go down with the ship, so I don't blame you Mr. Perfidy if you take the life raft. This is actually the second conversation I've had on here that ended up in the emotional differences of the sexes. Last time, I called women more emotional. Then what happened? They got more emotional. It was ironic mostly to me and a few other observers.
i'm sort of curious how you'll have changed given 5 more years of life experience
[QUOTE=eKatherine;1122565]I have found men do not know what they want.
Men act on a more emotional level than women do. Their conscious desire is rarely the true desire that lies beneath their emotions. Should something or someone arise that sparks this hidden desire, they can change in an instant.
See, you found an ultimate truism of the human condition, and twisted it to make yourself look like a sexist rather than a genius.[/QUOTE]
Maybe we should revisit the allegory about the mirror and your reflection someone posted a while back. You see men as being more emotional, but that is through your lens. Maybe that man you're remembering had his heart broken enough times being a 'good guy' that he decided to beat women at their own game, one of using them for resources. (Consider the primitive brain's thinking. Does a man have any need to use a woman for resources? No, he could survive just fine by himself. The woman needs the man more if she is going to raise any babies. In the primitive brain, the woman uses the man for his skills and resources, but the man does not use the woman. Oh, you say sex is a commodity that the man is using the woman for? Wrong, the man could just rape the woman and be satisfied. Ok, let's continue.) So this man learned deception and tricked you into sex and maybe even a relationship with more sex. You come to find out that he doesn't want to marry you, so you think of men as changing their minds. However, all along he knew what he wanted. If you were to accept to yourself that he just used you, that would make you hurt emotionally. Many, like you, would naturally take the easier route and say the problem was with the guy and not you. Because if he had used you, that must prove some sort of inadequacy of your own to be unable to keep a man around.
Just to clarity, I don't know anything about your situation. The above is merely an example of how perspective can give one the wrong idea.
