Nerds can be awesomely condescending at times.

I try not to do that (had some decent RPG, fighter, third person shooter, and platforming conversations), and for the most part, you just have to ask "what kinda games are you into" to figure out whether they are there for themselves or someone else.

Then again, alot of Gamestop employees will assume you're there for certain games depending on your race (not really offensive, but can be funny at times)...though thats another topic lol.

In the states in can be sorta taboo(?) to even admit you're into games at times...even if you're a guy. It's getting better though.

Depends. Usually girls like guys who want to take care of themselves. But sometimes they're turned off if they're over obsessive, especially if they start pointing out the stuff that we eat.

Example, my friend's boyfriend is very conscious of his weight and usually doesn't eat with us when we go out. It's fine usually but sometimes we get annoyed cause he looks at us as if we're eating too much or points out if it's unhealthy. Also if he drinks soda (that we happen to give him) he complains all day that it's bothering his stomach.

I can definitely relate to this. Complete turn-off, makes you not want to hang out with the person.

I had to figure out how animating in photoshop works to make this. xD
Reminds me why I don't really want to go into animation anymore! Too many frames! (this is only like.. 6 frames. Haha!)

I had this thing:


One of my first Barbies! I obviously named her Sparkle, but then I also cut and dyed her hair some kind of red/pink with markers.
What's funny was that most of my human female dolls turned into badguys because I didn't like super girly or "bimbo"-like things.

I just read something about this on the cover of a women's magazine so I'll ask about it here.

Why do women fake orgasms? I've heard them say that it's to protect the guys ego, but why would you care about a guy's ego if he isn't hitting it right? Isn't faking it just a disservice to yourself in the end because if your guy thinks what he's doing is working he's probably going to keep doing that - how would he know unless you tell him? Isn't it just better to communicate and figure it out rather than faking it? Faking it just seems like a form of submission to the desires of the man and I don't really agree with that "man of the house/the man is always right" nonsense. I mean, to me it only makes sense to fake it if you absolutely don't care about sex...

I don't know if you are all qualified to answer but I've always wondered about this since it's a topic that seems to come up among women a lot in sort of a cynical way.

I think this boils down to self-consciousness and fear of awkwardness more than anything. Yes, it's smarter and more beneficial in the long run to not fake it, but it's kind of like how people lie to avoid hurting the feelings of others or how people don't tell their significant other when they're doing something wrong (and just hold it in until they snap). It's not "smart" but when you're caught up in the moment it's "easier" and avoids less difficult confrontation. When I say self-consciousness and awkwardness I'm referring to the idea that when a girl starts sleeping with someone she might want everything to be perfect, which would include orgasming at the right time (what, you haven't orgasmed yet? What's wrong with you?) and they might even be scared that the guy would lose patience (again, not saying this is reasonable thinking).

Another sad possibility is that the girls themselves might not yet know what it takes to get them off, and in the need to participate in the experience and feel like they are acting in a way that is "normal" they just mimic one instead.

What if the girl just wants to cut sex short? Haha. I guess a fake orgasm would work for that too! Spares the ego, gets the girl out of sex faster, get other things done. >_>

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed

The current studies were conducted in order to investigate the phenomenon of
copulatory vocalizations and their relationship to orgasm in women. Data were
collected from 71 sexually active heterosexual women (M age = 21.68 years .52)
recruited from the local community through opportunity sampling. The studies
revealed that orgasm was most frequently reported by women following
self-manipulation of the clitoris, manipulation by the partner, oral sex
delivered to the woman by a man, and least frequently during vaginal penetration.
More detailed examination of responses during intercourse revealed that, while
female orgasms were most commonly experienced during foreplay, copulatory
vocalizations were reported to be made most often before and simultaneously with
male ejaculation. These data together clearly demonstrate a dissociation of the
timing of women experiencing orgasm and making copulatory vocalizations and
indicate that there is at least an element of these responses that are under
conscious control, providing women with an opportunity to manipulate male
behavior to their advantage.

Don't mind. Skinny jeans don't always look extreme/emo (if the guy has calves they can look quite decent). And they vary in skinniness, too. Thin is alright, really depends how thin and stuff though. IMO best is lean with slight musculature.

You can't really generalize the entire female gender so easily. Different girls have all sorts of tastes, kinda like men, surprise surprise.

I interpret this as: Yes. Faking an orgasm during intercourse is to end it faster. Ladies be getting bored.

Also on skinny jeans on guys:
Depends if you have the look that works with them and the kind of girl you want to be attracting.

I'd like to ask one small question if I may. How does a guy avoid being put squarely in the "just friends" category? I don't really like asking a girl out unless I know something about her first. Walking up to a girl and saying " You're pretty, we should go out" seems kinda shallow to me. I've tried it but it never works. When I get to know a girl, we usually get along really well and I make a healthy amount of female friends but whenever I ask a girl out I just get wide array of excuses, I've actually gotten the washing the hair excuse, or straight refusals. I don't usually ask my good female friends out(I can only think of one that I asked) but I do occasionally ask the ones that I'm just getting to know. When I was younger I always had a habit of just running into girls who were in a relationship. We would remain friends so it never caused any issues. Lately, though they just aren't interested. I'd ask my female friends but I think I'd get a more honest answer from a neutral party. Any help would be appreciated.

I know there are a bunch of topics about this issue but I've been getting chewed out for bringing up old topics lately and this thread still seems to be fresh. The dating-age seems a bit too focused on "scoring" and I don't like weeding through a bunch of "clever" responses.

What exactly do they say when they refuse you? Just wondering since you've gotten a lot of them. Most girls go out with someone who they get to know so it's not the fact that you're getting close to them is what turns them off.

People bought me barbies didn't play with 'em. Played with batman, cars, building blocks, etc. Then when my dad got me a computer, I was playing Lode Runner and Descent.

Walking up to a girl and saying " You're pretty, we should go out" seems kinda shallow to me. I've tried it but it never works. When I get to know a girl, we usually get along really well and I make a healthy amount of female friends but whenever I ask a girl out I just get wide array of excuses, I've actually gotten the washing the hair excuse, or straight refusals. I don't usually ask my good female friends out(I can only think of one that I asked) but I do occasionally ask the ones that I'm just getting to know. When I was younger I always had a habit of just running into girls who were in a relationship. We would remain friends so it never caused any issues. Lately, though they just aren't interested. I'd ask my female friends but I think I'd get a more honest answer from a neutral party. Any help would be appreciated.

I know there are a bunch of topics about this issue but I've been getting chewed out for bringing up old topics lately and this thread still seems to be fresh. The dating-age seems a bit too focused on "scoring" and I don't like weeding through a bunch of "clever" responses.

Okay, this is the last "guys ask girls for advice about girls" thing I will answer.

YOU CANNOT AVOID IT. IT JUST HAPPENS.
Maybe you are just not date material to most girls. Maybe they see you just as too friendly instead of sexy and mysterious. Maybe all the girls you want to date are the girls that don't want to date you. :l Really can't say unless I knew more about you, but I think my answers are the most plausible. Sounds like you just put yourself into a tough situation. Maybe you should just ask your female friends to set up dates for you or introduce you to their single friends.

AND NOW MY BOYCOTT ON GIVING ADVICE BEGINS!!!


TRADE SECRET #234 MUST BE PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS.


Oh, I played with PLENTY of boys' toys! Maybe because they were bought for my brother, but whatever. We shared them. They were practically mine since I was older. Haha!
I had a bunch of Hot Wheels and army truck stuff. Those were the best for when dolls went to war with each other! And some transformers stuff and other things like megablocks and lego and jenga in order to build fortresses.

I too HATED baby dolls and bottles and stuff. They ended being the evil whiny enemy masterminds! I never found any of them cute. They all looked so CREEPY with their rolling eyes and pouty faces and needed to be destroyed. >__> (but I love babies. I just hate baby dolls. lol)

Definitely not, but I'm also not into the extreme opposite either. The knucklehead look is a huge turnoff. Generally like tall, athletic types. Guy next door kind of thing.

And it's nice to see this thread! I've been on GAF long enough; might as well join you ladies. I'm probably one of the older ones (first console was the Atari 2600 so that should date me pretty well :D ) but my love for games just gets greater every year...while my time to play them seems to get shorter. Hard to keep up with a demanding career and social life, but I am a multi-tasking pro. Though, aren't we all?
