I wish I were joking or exagerating or even boasting when I say that this explains most of my confusion on the matter.

I pose that the new method of telling someone that you have no romantic interest in them, nor any designs beyond simple civility, is to smack them across the face.

I suspect that this will also yeild a reduction in abusive relationships as the abuser will have admitted to not loving the victim.

What has this world come to where a simple, kind gesture has to be associated with flirtation? Just because I want to express my general kindness, doesn't mean I'm flirting. And some people get OFFENDED by the fact that I'm trying to be nice, like offering a compliment. I mean really, a compliment? I just wanna be nice to people because it feels good man

good save, though.

I'm also glad you're not a cleaver man.

it's even funnier when people are offended by it.

I'm polite and nice anyway because I was raised to be.   
And maybe I like to ogle attractive female butts as they walk by.

Politeness has become so rare I see it as sarcasm. Like last week when I had to make some graphics for some schoolproject.

girl that works with me: "Nice graphics you made there"
me: "Well, if they aren't good enough, than do it yourself"
girl:"... I was making a compliment.

You are exactly right. Compliments feel like insults to me.

You, my friend, are the best kind of friend.
That is their problem if they act that way.
I can relate. BIG TIME.

im going to admit how terrible of a person i am. i deserve all your hate, here it goes...

when i sense that a girl likes me and trys to talk to me, im always rude towards them if i dont find them attractive. I know its ****** up, but i have no other ******* options. Because if i pretend to be nice back, she will assume i like her. So therefore, i become an ******* and be rude to every girl that i dont like.

it might hurt her feelings, but it saves my dick. Anyways, if anyone has better options, please let me know.
#225 to #212 - anonymous (03/15/2013) [-]
From one anon to another...
You aren't terrible, you just don't know how to handle this kind of situation.
Instead of being rude, you ask her about a shared interest. (Drama, band, etc.) Mention that you think that somebody in one of those groups is kinda cute. This will make her feel like she might be able to "get" that person. You'll be friendzoned for a while, but she will eventually realize that she is in love with her wingman.

Since I don't want to hurt any of the girls at school, but still can't ignore them since that would be rude I have inadvertently discovered the place lower than friend zone. Counselor zone.

Story time guys.
I go to an engineering school where there aren't very many females. (Not super relevant, just saying we got hit on a lot and have to get over it)
I had a class with a guy who was very beta trying desperately to be alpha. We talked a good bit and he started off as a nice guy but kinda got weird on me.
He would "Conveniently" show up in the buildings were my classes were, follow me (without talking to me, just being creepy), was overbearingly flirty and was often rude and vulgar; I was always polite though and responded to him and tried to be friendly.
MFW One day this ****** walked up to my fiance (The very first conversation we had I mentioned that I had been in a serious relationship for a while and talked about it a lot after that. Fiance also went to this school.) and told him that he needed to "back off" because I was "his".

TL;DR I was polite and turned into another guy's property.

So that's why it feels so odd.   
I seldom help people out because of the awkward chance they don't understand kindness. Best avoid everyone, eh?

to all the comments... where the hell do you guys live?
where I live, politeness is not always rare and when being polite I have never met someone who can't tell the difference between politeness and flirtation.

Compared to some countries apparently people from England are too polite.

what about Canada
User avatar #200 to #190 - irishwolven (03/15/2013) [-]
Thought Canadians were apologetic rather than polite to be honest.
