    Irony- (from the Ancient Greek εἰρωνεία eironeía, meaning hypocrisy, deception, or feigned ignorance) is a literary or rhetorical device, in which there is an incongruity or discordance between what one says or does and what one means or what is generally understood. Irony is a mode of expression that calls attention to the character's knowledge and that of the audience.

    There is some argument about what qualifies as ironic, but all senses of irony revolve around the perceived notion of an incongruity between what is said and what is meant; or between an understanding of reality, or an expectation of a reality, and what actually happens.

    IF there is something similar to this topic posted here, charge it to my head, not my heart. For example, Irony is very prominent in the gay community & this is one of the many reasons why I'm considering looking at females again. Isn't it funny when those who aren't in the greatest shape themselves look funny at you when you're not either, waistline & all? But they approach you, you give the time of day because you're a decent, semi-extroverted kind of person. You take a liking to him, The both of you are in contact with each other for a few weeks then...BOOM!! He quits answering your calls, texts, or whatever is the efficient way of communication within the 2 of you. Now you move on, get over the whack-ass by getting a gym membership, change habits for better health & peace of mind. Some time later down the road, he spots you again without recognising the former you (You go from 240 to 199; got a nice waistline, nice build; you're basically fresh meat on the market).

    Now he makes himself sound like a broken record- "OMG, he's hot & I want to go with him!" All of a sudden, he remembers him 40# ago & he only found him good for a roll in the hay. Now that he has a new outlook & waistline, all of a sudden he craves him & wants him for himself.

    The only statement that comes to mind for those who like to play this kind of game called irony & also keep in mind, you're gonna always be in the one place when the day ends as it begins, by yourself...

    You diss me you miss me now you want to kiss me.

    Ok so some guys will like you and some guys won't. It's life. We can't all be attracted to everyone. And everyone isn't attractive to us. I'm sure all of us have been on both sides of the fence.

    When it happens, we pine a little but then we move on. All I can suggest is not to go about changing your core values for the idiots who you will meet in life. And gay guys and their crap, are IMHO, at the top of the list of idiots!

    Just remember that just because a guy has a six-pack doesn't mean he's got his shit together. Often times he's even more damaged than the norm.
    It's all eye candy. just eye candy... and just like candy, there's often little or no substance

    Be true to yourself and who you are and you will do fine. icon_biggrin.gif
