(I'm not attacking your comment for the sake of attacking it or whatever.)Well, I have met more guys who just lead girls on by saying they love them to get laid. I don't think all guys are like this, far from that actually, but if I were to put this in numbers, I have only known one girl who was after the "boyfriend experience", opposed to many guys.
Which dating sites have you tried? (P. S. Sorry you've had a bad experience).
@Smmyskittles Thanks, not your fault however. I tried heaps of dating sites in the past, now I mainly just approach at clubs. Though casually flick through tinder a bit.To reinforce my point, just a few days ago I matched a women on tinder. She's 30 and has 2 kids so many guys probably avoid her. But even so after lots of fun, flirty conversation and her bombarding me with questions about myself, clearly showing interest and me organising a date for today, she hasn't spoken to me for 3 days. So I assume she found a better option... or 2... or 10.This is why I'm trying to meet directly in person so there's more time for her to know me. Still get numbers and get no response from texts/calls from girls showing interest. Just gotta play the numbers game I guess and fool someone into thinking I'm better than I am.
That was pretty cute. "Fool someone into thinking I'm better than I am".You seem genuine and sweet. What woman wouldn't want that? Erm, well, I guess there are quite a few bad apples out there.Hmm. Maybe it's your area. I know 2 of my friends that have found (so far) successful relationships on Tinder.
@Smmyskittles Haha thanks. I try to be cleverer than I am to seem more awesome :pShit that's actually pretty spot on (according to girls I've dated, not just me). Girls that want a sexually dominant guy (their words not mine).Nah, I don't really buy the whole 'bad area' thing. So many people on tinder anyway. I only get a few matches/month and the city is a bit far away for me so don't go out as often as I'd like. I need to be approaching everywhere to have more chances.
Hmm. That's a bit odd. Sort of curious as to where you live. Won't ask, though if you want to share I'd welcome it.Are you active/outdoors? That could be a possibility.
@Smmyskittles I'm in Aus, in the sticks sort if haha, about an hour from the city. Might not seem far for many, but I get really tired and unmotivated to do stuff sometimes from my depression.Yeah I am a bit, used to be much more often when I was a tennis coach, played regular comp, but then I had leg surgery and my job replaced me when i went into hospital.
That sounds awesome, until I got to leg replacement. Ouch. :/Hate to ask.. but have you thought about moving?
@Smmyskittles Haha u skipped a few words there! Leg surgery, not leg replacement! Still painful after nearly a year of recovery. Stupid tumour argghhh.Yeah, all the time. I'd move tmro if i could but i get free rent from my dad in return for looking after his stuff and him having a place to stay when he visits from overseas. I've not been able to get f/t work and support myself. My Uni degree just made it harder it seems :/
ah, that was my bad. :P They replaced you at the hospital fused with "leg surgery" in my brain and led to the 'leg replacement'.Well, hopefully you're okay now!
That was great, thank you!
you're welcome :)

*Some* females.Then there are the ones who value him BECAUSE he has no attachment.
@Smmyskittles Most girls you meet aren't like that, though. They think that if a guy hasn't been on at least 5 dates in the past month he's not of high value. Makes it harder for introverted guys to have a chance.
Yeahhhh, but not all females. Just like not all men like a woman who's hard to get or plays games. Some do, some don't.I like being an exception to sterotypes about women. Of course, some of them I fit, sadly. This, is not one. I really don't like a challenge. Sure, they require work but if I feel as though I have to compete for your attention; I'm out.To be even more detailed, there IS a difference between being busy and just "having too many options". Work gets his attention first, family, etc.
@Smmyskittles You are the exception, because most girls do seem to want a challenge. I even had a female friend tell me that I'm not mysterious enough, that I'm giving them too much up front. I don't like to play games, though.
lmao. Did she really say "you're not mysterious enough"?& I can be blunt to the point where it's uncomfortable. Chases about half of the men away. They consider it to be aggressive.Don't change, stay you. It's their loss. NOT just saying that. Yes, it's over said, but it's so true in many cases.
@Smmyskittles Yes, she said those exact words!I used to have the attitude that "it's their loss," but I'm a guy. I have to make things happen or be okay remaining alone.
I mean, taking the initiative should be enough.Sure, I've left my number for a guy before... err, well a few actually. However, they have asked for it or tried to give me theirs. (There is a reason behind it, different story).There are women who like a dude who's not all about "being mysterious". If you are a little, that's a little fun.But to the point where it's like a rubix cube (if you're like me, they're the devil! lol), you give up. It goes somewhere for a while, you might try again, but ultimately you lose it or it goes in the trash.
@Smmyskittles Have you ever typed yourself in the MBTI?
@Smmyskittles I was just curious what your temperament was.
@Smmyskittles Cool. I'm INFJ, so I guess that's why we have similar outlooks on this issue.
Truthfully, I have taken that test before. But, didn't consider it important enough to remember. lol.I fluctuate between Introvert and Extrovert, though I'm far more extroverted. Introverted (I think) was about 23% or something like that. Do have my nights where all I want to do is stay in.It's unlikely I'll remember it this time as I really don't consider it important. Not because it's not, but it's only been asked 2 or 3 times in my life; thus far.
@Smmyskittles Oh, it's very important to me, because it's helped me to understand myself and the people around me.
But how will you know if marriage is an option if you don't date the person lol
I don't want to get married, for a long time.
Who says there's never going to be marriage and kids?
Your right it's not a fear of commitment and yes some people just don't want to put in effort. But there is also a lot of fear of pain.
Those downvotes. Not mine by the way.
@mostwomenshouldstfu what about those downvotes?
You said it better than I ever could. Straight and true!
Feminism is mostly bullshit in my opinion
link to this 'study', please?
@kaylaS91 You are a feminist , and I'm not some boy on GAG looking for a relationship, got a solid one already as I always do... so save it for some other guys on here that like to argue about women in general... bye !!
Asker... Than you !!
no sweetcheeks, I'm not a feminist. I was simply asking for proof of your statement but I'll remember not to ask for something when you know very well that you just pulled it out of your ass. :)
@kaylaS91 Get off my post , and don't test me...
I'm asking for sources. You should probably stop spewing these whiney opinions of yours out of your mouth if you have absolutely nothing to back them up, and choose to have a temper tantrum instead of calmly admitting to not having any actual study. 👌
Asker... There's a lot of great men and women just waiting out there looking for real relationships still. First it was the ( individuality) phase then , the third wave Feminist movement, the both combined together as it is today. This is the reason for so many family failures concerning relationships. I guess they think negatively towards everything in general. I've always been able to stay in a great relationship regardless as I am as we speak.
@kaylaS91 You know absolutely what I'm talking about. And for you or any other woman to deny all this , really is immature , not mention an abomination unto GOD. So you go right ahead with your (sourse searching ) instead of (soul searching ) and by the way... 3 years with a guy friend and still ( NOT ) married yet?
@kaylaS91 It's not a "study" he's talking about. He's saying to go and study Feminism, as a verb. What your asking for is a MASSIVE! amount of information, well beyond the scope of this webpage. Not exactly a realistic request. It's a well known fact that Feminism has been working for decades to destroy what they call "The Patriarchy". So start there, use Google to look up critics of Feminism and dig deep, there is countless hours of high quality content on the topic.
Why would people downvote this? What purpose does downvoting a question serve? There's no opinion being stated
Commitment is essentially trust and a connection no? So what do you have with other people if you don't have that?
They downvoted because they don't like your comment. Downvoting's purpose is to indicate people's dislike for a comment.
@Alm12b I'd consider intimacy to be trust and connection. And intimacy can most definitely exist without commitment. I'm not implying that commitment isn't important I was just posing a question for self introspection. I personally believe that most of the time if we keep encountering the same problems in our lives that we very well might be contributing to creating those problems. Maybe this generation isn't noncommittal maybe you're unknowingly being drawn to noncommittal men. The only way to know for sure is to fully understand your train of thought when it comes to commitment.@Silver158 I understand the function of downvoting and the immediate reason for downvoting my issue is that to downvote a question with no opinion being stated yet is kind of pointless.
To be fair she did defend a pedophile rapist and let him get away with his heinous crime. She's not exactly a humane individual.
@RegularTK421 a lawyer defends the rights of the indicted, NOT the crime.
Still worse than so called "misogynist" propaganda. Some vague, tin foil hat accusation. I couldn't defend a man who I knew was guilty of putting a 12 year old girl into a coma. Says a lot about her morals, or lack there of.
@RegularTK421 That's implying 'guilt by assocition' (which isn't in the Law) should be extended to defense lawyers. Then you can just as well not have courts of justice.
edit *guilt by association
Just shows her morals is all. Yet Trumps boastful talk all those years ago is more offensive, then how Hillary found it so fucking hilarious to defend a child rapist. Again, hypocrisy.
@RegularTK421 I'm not sure you understand what the profession of lawyer is.
Go ahead and explain to me how, "Grab them by the pussy" is more offensive than getting a child molester only 2 months of jail time for putting a 12 year old girl into a coma. I'm waiting. It's not "misogynist propaganda" that hit Hillary Clinton. It's her numerous scandals, and the fact that people died at Benghazi while she was secretary of state. She claimed it was uncoordinated, yet it was. Ansar Al-Sharia was behind the attack. She also denied increased security requests prior to the attack. She is incompetent, corrupt, and is not capable of being President.
@RegularTK421 "grab them___" is an advice or confession.Defending someone's rights in court is a lawyer's JOB.Hillary did not attack the embassy, terrorists did.
Grab them sounded like boastful talk, not exactly a confession. It's not her performing her job that's the problem, it's her lack of empathy, and how she found it so fucking hilarious that a known rapist could pass a polygraph. She also laughed at "injustice" concerning her defendant, and again chuckled. As far as the embassy is concerned, she is secretary of state, her job is to keep our embassies safe. Why would she deny a request for more security in Libya, a country prone to terrorist and insurgent attacks? Also, she denied the fact that it was an orchestrated terrorist attack. She originally attempted to downplay the issue to save her own ass calling it "riots". Aside from the fact that these "rioters" had rpgs. She's a corrupt evil bitch. She also rigged her own primary so there's that as well.
Though I could never defend a known child molester. I just don't picture most women/children advocates taking on such a position. It shows she cares more about her career and law firm, then she does about actual justice. She could have refused the case, lawyers do it all the time.
@RegularTK421Then you shouldn't become a lawyer. Or even a cop or a D. A. The cops and the D. A. have to investigate all elements, those *in favor* of the accused included. A lynch mob doesn't do that, nor does the mafia.
Either way she lost the election. It's not due to misogynist propaganda, it's due to her corruption and scandals.
@RegularTK421 Hillary WON the popular votes. 1.6 million more than Trump. But the Electoral College doesn't take them into account.
@RegularTK421 Don't forget the Comey disregard of the Hatch Act. and the FBI lie about needing 11 days to investigate a laptop. (while advance voting was going on.)
The electoral college does take them into account. High population states award more electors. It is based off the popular vote for each state. Aside from that, you have three electoral colleges in Belgium, and we have been using the same elector system since 1787. It's in our constitution. Our system is fair and it works, it allows all states to be important in the Union. Otherwise only 5 states would elect the president every year. Even still, high population states award more electors, so it's proportional representation. You don't even get to elect your Monarch, a descendant of a mass murderer by the way. Overhaul your government first, which is far less democratic and representative than ours.
A baseless liberal argument. The Hatch act has nothing to do with an investigation. Try reading the actual act. She was investigated because she didn't handle government emails the she was supposed to. Either due to incompetence, laziness, or again corruption. I also liked how she tampered with the investigation by deleting over 30,000 emails. If that's not a sign of a cover up, I don't know what is. Not to mention her political power is so pervasive, she was able to meddle into the FBI's independent investigations, threatening Comey and getting him to back down. She is corrupt and beyond the law. I liken the Clinton family to the Borgias. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hatch_Act_of_1939
@RegularTK421 " she didn't handle government emails the way she was supposed to." Indeed. She apologized for it.Not the drama mr T made about it.
Apologizing for corruption and deleting 30k emails prior to a federal investigation? I'm sorry. Well if that's all it takes Nixon should have just said, I'm sorry. No big deal, actually why don't we just revamp the whole justice system to that end. Broke into a house? It's cool if your sorry. Stop being a partisan dumbass and just accept the fact that she has numerous scandals. Sanders has a clean record, and should have been the democratic nominee. That's why they lost the election, and it is now proven that the DNC was rigged in her favor. So keep apologizing for her corruption, because you are not convincing anyone. You refuse to accept the truth, and shift the blame of her loss to bullshit excuses, rather than facts. Clearly you are not capable of objectionable, rational thought. You simply disavow and excuse Clinton at all costs. If it was just one small scandal, it would be one thing. There is only so much you can sweep under a rug though.
PS read more about the Borgias.And in Belgium *every* vote has the same weight.
Every vote here has the same weight. It goes by popular vote in each state, that's how the electors are elected to begin with. Something you clearly do not understand. Belgium also doesn't vote for it's monarchy, or its representatives for the E. U parliament. Again, you have less say in your representation, than the U. S. Your Monarch is your head of state. That is a fact, and you can research the civic functions of what a head of state is responsible for. Belgium also has 3 electoral colleges, and uses national I. Ds for it's elections. Hypocrisy much?
In the U. S, more government positions are subject to the voters will compared to Belgium, that is a fact. Only the Supreme Court is appointed by the President and Congressional approval. The Supreme Court is the most insulated branch of the government from the general public. We elect our Senators, our Representatives, and our President. The popular vote in each state determines which President wins that electoral vote. It is not a national vote.
@RegularTK421 :D The Belgian king has no REAL power, he can't sign a decree alone, he just co-signs with the PM or a secretary of state, he cuts ribbons, has official diners with heads of state, visits catastrophe victims and that's it. The PM has more power.
@RegularTK421... just Like the queen in England or the Netherlands or the King in Spain or Greece etc.
The Belgian monarchy symbolises and maintains a feeling of national unity by representing the country in public functions and international meetings.In addition, the monarch has a number of responsibilities in the process of the formation of the Government. The procedure usually begins with the nomination of the "Informateur" by the monarch. After the general election the Informateur officially informs the monarch of the main political formations which may be available for governance. After this phase, the monarch can appoint another "informateur" or appoint a "Formateur", who will have the charge of forming a new government, of which he or she generally becomes the Prime Minister.The Constitution of Belgium entrusts the monarch with federal executive powers: the appointment and dismissal of ministers, the implementation of the laws passed by the Federal Parliament, the submission of bills to the Federal Parliament and the management of international relations. The monarch sanction
The monarch sanctions and promulgates all laws passed by Parliament. In accordance with Article 106 of the Belgian Constitution, the monarch cannot act without the countersignature of the responsible minister, who in doing so assumes political responsibility. This means that federal executive power is exercised in practice by the Federal Government, which is accountable to the Chamber of Representatives in accordance with Article 101 of the Constitution.The monarch receives the prime minister at the Palace of Brussels at least once a week, and also regularly calls other members of the government to the palace in order to discuss political matters. During these meetings, the monarch has the right to be informed of proposed governmental policies, the right to advise, and the right to warn on any matter as the monarch sees fit. The monarch also holds meetings with the leaders of all the major political parties and regular members of parliament. All of these meetings are organized by the
monarch's personal political cabinet which is part of the Royal Household.The monarch is the Commander-in-Chief of the Belgian Armed Forces and makes appointments to the higher positions. The names of the nominees are sent to the monarch by the Ministry of Defence. The monarch's military duties are carried out with the help of the Military Household which is headed by a General office. Belgians may write to the monarch when they meet difficulties with administrative powers.The monarch is also one of the three components of the federal legislative power, in accordance with the Belgian Constitution, together with the two chambers of the Federal Parliament: the Chamber of Representatives and the Senate. All laws passed by the Federal Parliament must be signed and promulgated by the monarch.
He plays a much bigger role than that I'm afraid. As I stated, he is your head of state. The President is ours, accountable to the general public and elected in by a representative electoral system.
Your head of state, is born into. Nuff said
@RegularTK421 " she didn't handle government emails the way she was supposed to." Indeed. She apologized for it.Not the drama mr T made about it. https://i.imgur.com/dcW1gCu.jpg
He's not in office yet, how would that be considered govt communications? That slide is obviously wrong.
@RegularTK421 The real Manchurian candidate: www.chicagotribune.com/.../...-20161110-story.html Remember how the Russians hacked DNC computers and voting computers in two states were hacked: www.nbcnews.com/.../russians-hacked-two-u-s-voter-databases-say-officials-n639551
Comey knew it but didn't inform the Congress : www.politicususa.com/.../...-hacking-election.htmlIt was too close to the elections, was his excuse.
@RegularTK421 Just remember it.
I thought the red scare died with McCarthyism. Wasn't that a republican tactic? Aside from that it wasn't the Russians, there is no solid proof just baseless speculation. Also, the Clinton foundation received millions of dollars from Gulf Arab oil states, the same states that fund Islamic terrorism. So yeah, I don't care if some people in the Trump campaign talked to Russian diplomats. Politicians and diplomats talk, it's what they do. Nice red scare attempt though. Wikileaks states that Ukraine is the source of the hacks.theduran.com/.../
And just to inform you of the nature of how computer hacking works, hackers mask their attacks through series of national ip addresses, and remotely hacked servers. It is almost impossible to trace the source of the hack.
@RegularTK421 Not thus. You forget I'm Belgian. I studied comparative Constitutional law during my masters , (among many other courses. ) I don't know how many constitutions I studied in total. :-p The Belgian one was apart.
right, an opinion from the Hill. That's a fact. Sounds more like baseless fear mongering and red scare tactics. The only recipient of foreign political donations, would be Clinton through the Clinton foundation. Again, an organization that by design, masks the activities of foreign donors. www.politifact.com/.../
@RegularTK421 I quote the conclusion in your link: "That does not, however, prove Trump’s point."
It can not prove or deny it. They did however, receive foreign money. We just can not prove how much the "Friends of Saudi Arabia" actually donated. They Clinton Foundation admitted in 2008 that Saudi Arabia donated between 10 to 25 million dollars. Strange the Sauds would donate so regularly to the Clinton foundation. Also, they stopped all donations while she was secretary of state, then resumed donations after she stepped down. Seems a bit coincidental to me, but yes Trumps claims can not be concretely proved or denied. Neither can who hacked the DNC emails. It did however lead to revelations that allowed corrupt party chairwomen Debbie Wasserman Schultz to step down. More important than the fact that the emails were hacked, is what was revealed by them. I consider them heroes who ever is responsible for it.
chairwoman* Again for rigging the primary in favor of Sanders. Something they ridiculed Sanders on when he made those accusations before, but could not prove it. Turns out, he wasn't wrong.
@RegularTK421 I remember JFK making a big fuss over some hangars supposed to be able to contain rockets on Cuba. I remember Reagan invading tiny Grenada because they were building a supposedly "Communist airport".
@RegularTK421 Thus you now consider the Russians to be your heroes. Doesn't surprise me.
Times change. Also, we don't know that it was the Russians. No one has actually proven who was responsible for the hack. One thing is for sure, the information revealed really informed the general public of the DNC's corruption. All in all, yes I consider it a good thing. Just like Edward Snowden. How do you feel about Julian Assange and Edward Snowden?
@RegularTK421 According to my last info Snowdon is in Russia, thus probably helping Russian hackers. And Assange is in London.
@RegularTK421 "Also, we don't know that it was the Russians." Just like Republican Comey pretended not to know what was on that laptop. As if the NSA needs 11 days to examine a 1GB HDD in a laptop. My guess is 2 hours or less.
Comey covered up for Hillary, destroying laptops and evidence. He's one of your corrupt Clinton insiders. www.trunews.com/.../comey-admits-destroyed-laptops-had-classified-info
Again, you are misinformed. Like always. Defended child molester, laughed about it twice behind the scenes. - ":just doing her job"DNC hacks reveal corruption, chairwoman steps down, primary rigged in Hillary's favor - It was the Russians!!FBI reopens email scandal, Comey backs down and destroys evidence as part of her immunity deal - Comey is a Republican!!!Denied security requests from Benghazi, leads to death and torture of Americans - No big deal says jacquesvolGood thing you don't live in our country. Maybe corruption is what works with the Belgian monarchy, but here in the U. S, I vote for a candidate that isn't mired in scandal and corruption.
@RegularTK421 I know which trick Comey played in the middle of the voting.That guy should never have been in that function. No place today for wannabee Edgar Hoovers.
He was attempting to do his job, until Clinton threatened his FBI career and put him in his place. A secular FBI investigator doing his job, what a threat to jacquesvol. You are backwards and illogical. Crime can not be tolerated, by anyone. I'm glad she lost.
@RegularTK421 about that 'trunews', I did a quick search: "Rick Wiles, the host of the TruNews radio program, is a Far-Right fundamentalist Christian radio host and conspiracy theorist who demonstrates the miraculous ability to out-crazy virtually anyone else. "Just seeing who he's associating with tells a whole story. (FYI: Vikernes has done jail for killing someone in Scandinavia. Certainly NOT a guy I'm gonna believe.
Even the tru news article aside, There are countless other articles. She is corrupt jacquesvol. It is undeniable at this point.
That is why she lost. For all of her corruption, and primary rigging and lies. Dirt catches up with you.
@RegularTK421 'countless other articles' Indeed, the teen boys in a Macedonian village posting fake news.www.inquisitr.com/.../
@RegularTK421 She lost because of a rigged system and the FBI intervening when Trumps polls were at an all time low. She 'lost' with 1.6 mn more Americans voting for her than for mr Thttps://i.imgur.com/fwSGSSg.jpg
What does that have to do with Hillary? Not seeing the relevance. Some Macedonians have a fake news racket going. So what?
How about DC, you didn't include those votes in there. They have a population with 3 delegates, and they went to Clinton. California contributes 55 electors to the president, Wyoming only 3. It's not that serious. So because corrupt Hillary lost the election, you want to disband the electoral college, but keep the Belgian Monarch? GTFO. You can't even elect your head of state. Again, stupid logic on your part. Falling for short sighted internet meme posters like it's a fact of life. You haven't even verified the math behind it.
You overthrow your king first, and I will consider helping to disband the electoral college. LMAO. Make way for the descendant of Leopold the Second butcher of the Congo! King Phillip! All subjects of the Belgian crown kneel before your King!!! Born into Kingship by Divine providence. Yes very democratic.

Ok, you don't wanna fall in love, that's fine. When you fall in love you only want that one person, that's why we commit. But if you don't want to fall in love, you want to be with many girls your whole life, it's not right and you will probably be unhappy that way, but do whatever you want, it's your life,
