" ...so i'd rather live in a world with just women, than just men. I think it'd be a lot less fucked up. "And a whole lot sexier.

I suggest you to read some books, like "a brand new world" from Aldous Huxley, or anything, to have a better perspective of many things. "
I tend to fall for someone's personality first, and looks second.More girls are like this than not. If anything, girls in High School are more interested in someone's social status than their appearance. That, and the allure of someone's looks as the main attraction drops significantly halfway through college and beyond.
That's why those spoiled brats on "My Super Sweet 16" always say, "They hate me because they're jealous." They can't imagine a world that doesn't revolve around them. And it looks like most people here don't even remember you... so enjoy being unknown, rather than hated.
Apparently we can't bash his opinion, but he can bash another writer's. He can dish it out, but he can't take it.
Basically, he ignores the thrust of everyone's argument, and focuses on how much Halo he's played.
@JetTripper: By the way, if your opinion on Halo is more valid because of the time you've spent with it, then your argument is broken, since the Bungie team has likely spent even more time than you have with their games.
This. For the thousandth time, this. In fact, I tend to agree with you that Halo has become too "arcadey". That's not the point.
" @JetTripper: We aren't making fun of you because we think your opinion is wrong, we are making fun of you because you think someone else's opinion is wrong and went to ridiculously lengths to prove to everyone how incompetent you are. "
Girls put you in the "friend zone" because they're not attracted to you, or you never made a move, or you lack self-confidence, or you're not her type, or you think girls are bitches if they are sexually interested in other guys but not you.
Guys who hate "the friend zone" are guys who don't understand how to attract women. They then blame the women for problems that are actually their own. It's not a girl's fault if she's not into you. It was either a lack of chemistry or a fault of your own. I'm an okay looking guy, and I've done okay with the ladies, but the hottest, sweetest, and funniest girl I dated was one who only met me when I was at my worst looking; 60 lbs overweight. I dated a lot of girls in high school when I was in shape and a football player, but the best girl I met while I was a chubby, directionless slob of a college student.
It's about how you perceive yourself and portray yourself to others. I exuded confidence and joked around with her. I mentioned how cute I thought she was and I asked her out. She didn't know or care that at that time I was the worst looking physically that I'd ever been, it's about how I treated her and made her feel, without giving up my identity or letting her walk all over me. That's a lot of guys' biggest problems, they think of conversation with women as a dialogue choice in Mass Effect. They're not trying to answer with what is the most honest portrayal of their feelings, they're trying to pick the response that gives them the best ending. They'll ditch their friends and cancel plans to go get coffee with a girl. The message that this sends isn't that you're perfect for each other and that this guy is so sweet he'll drop everything for me, it shows that you think she is better than you. That's a lack of self-confidence. If you think she's better than you, then why shouldn't she think it too? If you guys can remember that Mass Effect analogy, it will help you a lot with women.
Oh, and just because you like video games, manga, anime, Star Wars, whatever... that doesn't mean that you have to share that right away or talk about it constantly. Filter your conversation topics to things that you both enjoy and can discuss. If it comes up naturally, or if she notices your game collection, as long as you don't make a big deal about it, or make yourself seem obsessed, even the most anti-game girl isn't going to bat an eyelash. I like games and Star Wars, etc. I don't bring that up on dates because that is not my identity. I'm a wholly complete person, and those are just two things that I'm interested in. If they mention a game or ask a direct question I'll answer honestly, but I'm not going to bombard them with information they don't want because it's incredibly rude. Some nerds will say it feels "fake" or "insincere" to hide who you are, but that's not what you're doing. You're participating in a conversation, there are two sides and you should discuss something that both of you are interested in.
Also, this thread is the stereotype that keeps women from associating with male gamers.
