4141  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What you like/hate in the opposite sex!! on: October 14, 2010, 09:32:25 PM
Here's one thing I want to put forth. Guys say that they don't understand women. Women say that they don't understand guys. Bullshit.

People don't understand people. The only thing is, if you're not in a deep intimate relationship with someone, you don't have nearly as much riding on the relationship, so you don't NEED to know as much. Guys can "hang out", and not really connect all that deeply. Girls can do the same. But when you're in love, there's a lot of tip-toeing and anxiety that goes on, trying to balance each others prolonged happiness, sexual gratification, etc. That's where the communicate becomes important. If two straight men, as friends, had to have that kind of tight communication, they would have the same problems. Just listen to roommate stories, even among best friends.

Someone from our resident queer community would probably be better suited for highlighting this issue, but I noticed that it is pretty all-encompassing. Next time I hear the, "Man are from Mars, Women are from Venus" comment, I just want to bash their head in.

That whole "Women are like a different species" thing annoys me as well. Sometimes I think people purposefully try to make the opposite gender some sort of enigma so that they don't have to learn anything about them, or feel justified when they fuck up. Relationships are hard at times, and excuses like that are just lazy.

I know I've had problems with boyfriends, almost identically similar to the kind of arguments straight couples have. I get a lot of laughs when I hear guys saying stuff like "It must be so much easier going out with another dude, you can just do whatever, and it's cool cause you are both guys." Eh, no. As Prime Mover said, it is a totally different situation when you start a serious relationship with someone, no matter how good of a "bud" they may be.

Funnily enough, I do actually have a pathetically co-dependent relationship with a straight guy. We have known each other for years and years and years (which is about 8, for those who like numbers). He is actually pretty much the perfect boyfriend, only we don't have sex. It's a very...very weird relationship.  

As for what Alisha says, I get the same thing with some girl friends. After a while they stop treating me like a guy who likes guys, and more like a eunuch. But that's really here nor there, as any female friends I have are tomboys. I'm very much at home around male company, rather than a lot of gay guys who surround themselves with women.

I wouldn't say I was addicted, but more than a few times now I've loggged onto my laptop to do something, clicked the RPGfan tab on my browser, and by the time I'm done - i've completely forgotten what my original intension was.

EDIT: It's usually nothing important anyway. Mostly I just wiki random things like "penguins" or google the word "Cake" and drool over all the different sorts of cakes I'll never get to eat.

Haha, yep, you got me down to a tee there, CastNuri.

My current boyfriend is older than me, as have all but one of my previous partners. Someone who has long since gotten past their daddy issues and has their life in at least some form of order.

EDIT(2): Geez, that first edit was for a completely different post.

I'm not picky at all.

Nice face and nice hair.Apart from that I don't care too much on appearance.

As for personality I like women that are confident,independent,and humorous.I can deal with mood swings and temper,my girlfriend is bipolar and I am accustomed to dealing with her.

I wish I had that sort of patience, I can't deal with it though. So I just stay away from it.

My grandfather was schizophrenic and my aunt is bipolar, and we always had mentally handicapped/ill people in our house growing up since my mums brother works around them, rather than me learning to be comfortable around them I have a slight phobia of them. One of the women my uncle brought to our house kidnapped me when I was little, saying that I was her son and that my mum had stolen me from her.

I realize that while that woman was clearly deranged, and your girlfriend is probably very nice on a good day, I need stability and sanity in my day-to-day, probably because of that incident.

I'm going to just say what I like in my partners, since I'm not attracted to the opposite sex.

Grounded.
Not clingy, I like my solitude.
I'm very liberal, they should be as well. While I'm respectful to pretty much anyone, I don't like having my blood boiled.
Looks, do not matter (to me). I've been with pretty boys to overweight guys with skin problems - I know some people have a hard time wrapping their head around that.
Honesty, or at least, a bad liar.
SANITY. Or at least some indication that they are in fact self-aware. I really don't tolerate drama in my life, so people who have sudden mood swings can gtfo.

Randomly found Ar Tonelico 2 in G-Force yesterday, along with Suikoden Tactics. I was kind of taken back to see such an obscure title there, but way-hey.

Now all I need to do is find Ar Tonelico 1, if anyone knows, is 2 a continuation of the story? Would it be optimum to play 1 first?

I've only gotten through maybe 10 hours at most of AT1 without having played 2 and based on that and reading stuff online, it mostly has backstory about religion and a few people from 1 show up in 2, so you could probably play the first someday like a prequel instead of playing it first.


Danke, though I think i'll wait till I get 1. Sure I can treat the story like a prequel, but it always sucks when tweaking, improvements are taken away when you go in reverse order.

I am, however now playing Suikoden Tactics. Woo, Suikoden + Fire Emblem = Win.

@Dice: I just bought Ar Tonelico x.x

Did I just buy an H game or something? I let my little sister read the manual! D:

I think I made the wrong choice of words.

Jeans it is! :P

Good girl.

EDIT: I check my profile and realized I'm ignored by ONE user!!  ....let's try and make Thoren number 2! =D

I don't think you are that lucky, Dice. :P

@GenEricGui: I liked the Yunalesca fight :) I was just agreeing that it was a tricky one, and I remember losing a lot. The luck part came into it simply because even if you did keep everyone in zombie, you were protected from the 100% death-spell, but you still have Full-life's and Curagas getting thrown at you, with no way to heal.

She was definitely an interesting fight.

On a plane right now, some idiot got all in my face because I was sitting in the aisle seat, which he wanted.

I told him that not only was I hear first, but that I am 6'6 and my legs don't really fit too well in such a tight space. The gentleman, who was three times older than me but who had the maturity of a toddler decided to have a little tantrum.

So trying to save myself the embarrassment of the whole plane looking at me i'm now wedged in the window seat, my knees to my face while a ten-year-old in the seat infront of my insists on bouncing on his seat.

I'm jabbing a pen into his side every now and then though.


EDIT: Also for people visiting Scotland - some advice.

If you can't understand what they are saying, don't nod in the affirmative. A lot of Scottish people  play a game by talking in a really thick accent and when you do the "just nod your head and smile" thing, they will whisk you away and you'll either be a new drug mule or having tea with someones grandmother who has Alzheimers.

Chips are fries. What you call chips are crisps. A fanny is a vagina, so try to avoid "sitting on your fanny" at all costs. A Sega Genesis is a Sega Megadrive (You never know when you might need to know that).

Scottish people are highly sensitive if you criticize their country, and you will be screaming "The bees! The bees! My eyes! My Eyes!" before you know it.
