    Just because most of the world is riddled with cunts doesn't mean there aren't gems out there so worthy of a relationship that they'd outshine the brightest diamond. You just have to know how to recognize the sparkle when you see it.

    How do you recognize it? I mean, love makes you feel it's so right, when it clearly is so wrong!

    I have my own theory to explain the death of romance....

    I believe over the years, people have become hypersensitive to rejection and hurt. Instead of finding productive ways to cope with these feelings, they have chosen to live their lives with little or no intimacy to avoid being hurt. While casual sex can be a healthy part of life, in people who are phobic about intimacy, it becomes an artificial substitute. Unfortunately, casual sex mimics the real thing just enough to keep people from seeking the much riskier true romance.

    I dunno, I've just always been really good at figuring people out fairly quickly.
    I also have less physical requirements on my "perfect guy" checklist and more personality requirements.

    It kind of depends what you mean by romance. Personally, I hate some guy giving me flowers, or something you would normally give a girl. You don't see girls giving that crap to guys, because they are guys, not girls. Now give me a new set of sockets or band saw and I'd be happy. Dinner out is fine as is a movie, but a candle lit dinner is corny, instead I would prefer bbq on the patio with some beers and the movie better be action pack and not some romantic girly crap movie.

    I like this (well, I don't like it, but I think it's true). I might also add on that because people are so sensitive, they don't think they can date anyone unless the other person is *perfect* in every way.

    And why would that be? I'm a realist, I don't get by on life on fluff. Flowers are useless, they die, they belong outside in the yard growing where they can have their full life and bees can use them to make honey. I find it senseless and ignorant to spend a couple hundred dollars on a meal that you are going to forget about in a week an would prefer a memorable quiet time a home. It is you that has your priorities all screwed up. What you need is to live on the streets for a while to realize what is really important in life.

    My apologies for erroneously fat fingering a word, I should realize you would not be able to decipher the intent of a question.

    Why do continuously try to equate the human male species with the female species? They are biologically different and therefore there will also be a difference in their psychology make-up (and not the 'make-up' as the foundation and you use on your face). Where there may be similarities between them they are not equal. Furthermore, not every human has the same likes and dislikes as others so it is irrational to expect them to see eye-to-eye on everything. So what is ignorant, is to berate others for what they like or dislike or for their choice preferences.

    I would like you to re-read a couple of things.

    First, what you originally said.
    AMoonHawkPersonally, I hate some guy giving me flowers, or something you would normally give a girl. You don't see girls giving that crap to guys, because they are guys, not girls.
    Why do you assume that only females appreciate gifts such as flowers? That has nothing to do with biological make-up. Just because they are females doesn't mean they want flowers, and just because somebody is male doesn't mean they don't.
    Do you know why you don't see girls giving flowers to guys? Because in the heterosexual world, which is extremely misogynistic, it is not acceptable to do so because society has deemed it inappropriate. Does that mean that a girl shouldn't give a guy flowers? No. That just means that millions of people have been fooled into believing that it does.

    Secondly, the question that didn't make any grammatical sense and your re-write of it.
    AMoonHawkWhen do continuously try to make men be women?
    AMoonHawkWhy do continuously try to equate the human male species with the female species?
    First of all, when you asked the first question, I thought you fat-fingered the word "you" and turned it into "do".
    "When you continuously try to make men be women?"
    If that had been your question, then my answer would have been no, and I would have linked you to a dictionary definition of the word.
    Secondly, I believe you are still missing the word "you" in your re-write of the question. Should it not read "Why do you continuously try to equate the human male species with the female species?"

    There is absolutely no excuse for making such ignorant comments about assumed gender roles. We don't live in the 1950s.

    Too immature of a response to be worth responding to.
