However, I feel women don't get as much useful feedback on this site as men do, seeing that most of the men (based on my poll that I made a few months ago) struggle the most with even APPROACHING a woman for the first time.
Me, however, approached a woman 2 hours ago (about 10 years older than me)! ;-)
P. S. Here is the question with the poll about where male GaGers struggle the most with in the dating/courtship process, very useful data:
I agree with what @sparkly-crystal said but also the women on GAG are just as bad on GAG and are very bitter also. Women in real life are much nicer. I guess this is just a place bitter men and women come to spread hate. I have leant just how bitter and hateful some men and women are.
That ship sailed about 25 years ago for me and it was one of the most liberating days of my life, the day I gave up trying to understand women not in a women are weird way just different, you will only confuse yourself if you try so enjoy the difference instead of trying to label it.
I already understood women, before I came to GAG. Being here hasn't aided me in any direct way I can think of. Plus, you don't know exactly how many of the females are actually males. I'd say it's about 50/50. Half the pinks are blues in disguise, the rest are females. As a conservative estimate.
Not really. Most things I've learned about women, I've learned from women of various perspectives and personal experience with them.
Despite how I behave on this website... I do actually value women and often times read articles from their perspective. They aren't always comfortable to read, because you realize that they view you the way you view them and it's scary. But ultimately I learned that they aren't all that dissimilar from me, despite the hormonal and cerebral differences.
What GaG did show me, is that both sides really are dissatisfied with other for the same reasons, but at the same time desperately trying to find a meaningful connection. Perhaps this is ultimately both sides are dissatisfied, because we're conditioned by shit to want all these tertiary things that ultimately don't matter and matter less the older you get, but since you went through the shit... You're less trusting and more jaded when you'd learned to let go of the shit.
Yeah, I have learned a lot about the opposite gender.
What did I learn? That there is nothing to learn. Before joining this site, I thought there would be some kind of magic code that would teach me how to start and maintain relationships with women, and that it would work the same on all of them. Truth of the matter is that they are all different, and no such "code" exists.
