Maybe its more that men are suspicious. I don't think most men expect women to come on to them, and so when it does happen, it's like a red flag because most men expect to have to hunt for it.
And that's not what I meant, all I'm saying is that finding a female virgin is almost impossible, and this scales with age.
I will also never believe that men and women are equal in their shit. Because they aren't. Nothing ever is.
I dunno. This whole subject just makes me depressed.

I don't give a fuck anymore. I had enough of the bullshit after my ex.
Just fuck people in general. I hate all of you.

I've always known what I wanted, known what I loved, I'm not someone that has real feelings for other people easily, it's just a mess. I was stupid for loving someone just because of love. Relationships are pointless unless they actually mean something. Experience is bullshit. I just want one person. I don't want to date a bunch of people, I don't want someone whose gone through a bunch of people. I just want to find someone who knows as I know. That we, two, finally found each other. But if anything I'll die alone. A monster looking for another monster.

Some people have different reasons for being in a relationship. Many say it's because they're lonely, other because they want to have someone to do romantic shit with.

But for many, although it's hard to get someone to admit it, they pursue relationships as simply a proof that someone found them desirable enough to date.

Related to what you said.

People who diet that way will still get cravings. That's because the instinct isn't gone, just suppressed. It's still there, working away.

And your reptilian brain doesn't know the difference between protected and unprotected sex. If you get or give the dicking, your baser reptilian brain thinks you're breeding.

Yeah, courtship was a two-way thing. Mostly because the woman had to convince the man to stick around and protect her during pregnancy.

And I'm not arguing the reality of parental potential. I am describing what our most basic reproductive instincts tell us, and how it affects decision-making and impression formation from the subconscious upward. Just because we don't like it as an intellectual species doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

All the ideas on pair bonding you described are things we came up with intellectually after our higher functions formed. It doesn't erase our baser functions, and in many cases our baser functions provide the very foundation on which our higher functions rationalize our social decisions. "Forming a relationship" keeps the "parents" together to protect the "kid" (even if there isn't a kid, instinct likes to play it safe and be ready for one to happen).

There is no such thing as mutual feelings of love before the cat and mouse game, unless its the "accidental" love or "love at first sight" you see in the movies. In real life however someone must reach out to the other person. someone must be the cat and someone must be the mouse. I agree that it shouldn't always be the man, and it isn't. sometimes women are the cat, just like men are. sometimes roles switch during the relationship, the man could be the cat first, then later the woman would be the cat. Its all symbolic and much more complicated than saying just men and only men chase during the entire relationship. Its just an analogy for who is trying to make contact. once the cat and mouse game is over then come the "mutual feelings"

Also there is nothing wrong with being seen as a "prize", as it is also just another analogy for seeing someone as having worth. No normal human being actually imagines someone being a trophy on a shelf for them to have. I emphasize "normal" human being as there are men and women who do that, but they aren't normal in my opinion. The problem is when people see the person as only a Prize to be won and then forgotten once won, like conquering. I don't know where you came up with this, if you've heard feminist talk or whatever, maybe you thought of it on your own. But it relates to another thing feminists say which is being seen as a "sexual object", and once again it is a balance issue. There is nothing wrong with being seen as a sexual object. You are a sexual object. The problem comes when people see you ONLY as a sexual object and nothing more. You are so much more than just a sexual object, but you are one none the less. it is a balance issue. I you don't see someone as a sexual object at all, they are ugly. If you only see them as a sexual object and nothing more, they have no worth other than their sexual appeal.

Because that's how it is. If you aren't a literal alpha male (bigger, faster, stronger, built to last it longer) you're gonna have a hard time.
Oh I dunno? Maybe it's that females have a bit of a larger playing field, and so many seem to have plan Bs. My ex, god, she was a classic case. Always stringing along guys, always ending up hurt, never able to be happy with herself, but I suppose she's an extreme case. Truth is men don't want females to be a prize, it's hard enough as it is.

Agreed. Honestly if I were female I'd be such a semen demon it wouldn't even be funny. Nothing wrong with sex.

This is where you are wrong. You can literally get ask most of any dudes to sleep with you and there will be a cock in your mouth before you can say okay. There is no play involved. Just a direct "fuck me". The only one making it hard is probably just you and your woman think. Most men are direct. If you have trouble it's probably just because you're approaching an alpha and alphas get to be picky. (sorry I dont meant to hurt your feelings but thats one perk of being alpha) The opposite is also true, betas might just be shy.

Women do pursue, sometimes several. Nobody wants to be the second choice or something settled for but lots of women find ways to increase security, I had to learn that the hard way. Eh its biological, so I'm not downing that, but thats how it is.

What's wrong with purity? In fact, in the same way "whats wrong with sex" then "whats wrong with being a virgin"? Sex isn't that complicated.

Here let me break it down for you. People who've slept around a lot are much less likely to take a mate than those who sleep around less. When looking for a relationship what you want is loyalty and assurance. I mean, think about it, someone who has been in a lot of relationships (both for males and females) one after the other, what the fuck would you expect as being the "next girl or guy" in a long line of future relationships.

I like to believe I've learned a few things about women, and one is that they get over shit. Some sort of miraculous ability to just replace people. I've never understood it nor will I ever understand it, but I assume its another facet of biology. Perhapes its tied to biological necessity.

And don't get me wrong, I don't give a shit about all this men vs women bullshit, but some things are true whether we like to admit them or not. I haven't fucked a whole lot of girls, or any at all, so i feel like a failure and society would probably view me as one, meanwhile female in the same light is something to be admired by society.

But you know what? I agree with both.
I'm obviously not an alpha, and I never made any attempts to improve myself so thats my fault. And as for women, virgins women are such fucking unicorns finding a girl that hasn't already been railed is like finding a diamond in the sand.
#310 - tastycrisps (04/28/2015) [-]
I've asked a good amount of guys I know, ranging from 9/10s to 4/10s from alphas to betas from popular to social scum, and one rule I've seen pretty constantly being followed: do not put your dick in crazy, if you get a vibe that the person coming on to you is nuts, keep your genitalia away.

I, being pretty shy when it comes to courtship, was asking these various males how they view flirting. And they said a near stranger placing a hand on their face lights off too many red flags, same with direct, "let's fuck" requests and other things to that effect. The scenario was so ridiculous that it became an inside joke. "Oh that skater dude looks hot, go put your hand on his face..." etc.

Men have standards that are more complicated than just "must be above an x/10". Romantic relationships are too complicated to just put simple rules like that. Girls who have a lot of sex/boyfriends have more in common than how "easy" they are. They are frequently attractive and charismatic and popular. It's a combination of them wanting to have sex and others being convinced to have sex with them.

A person being in a lot of relationships is one thing. Sometimes having a list of exes is a good hint the person might not be 100% good boy/girlfriend material. But sex is different. If a girl has had quite a few sexual adventures in her day that really shouldn't be anything against her.

BTW, I'm pretty sure this isn't just me, but I too feel like a failure for not having convinced a significant amount of guys to let me sleep with them. Girls will brag about their sex achievements just like guys do, and I have never received any praise for remaining relatively "pure".

Biological. Can't help it.
A woman who has a kid is making herself vulnerable for nine months. A man who has a kid can just shoot 'n' scoot, and the pressure is off (biologically speaking).
You gotta convince a woman that the kid you're gonna make is worth that kind of investment, and that you're gonna stick around to protect her and it.

And no, we're not just gonna kick an instinct that's roughly 65 million years in the making in a 100,000-year period.

Just because it applies to how a bunch on naked hominids functioned 10,000 years ago doesn't mean it applies to us today. The past is a source of knowledge, both as inspiration and as a cautionary tale. It's our job as rational beings to choose what belongs in which category.

There's a lot of practices that ancient men did that we don't do today, and frankly we shouldn't start now. The concept of a stationary home was foreign to nomadic tribes. Yet today we spend the majority of our lives sleeping in the same place for years at a time.

As a matter of fact we can help biological stuff quite easily. People go on diets even though biologically they crave sugar and salt and fat. We technically should sleep twice a day, once at night and again in the early afternoon. But we don't because in order to function in a modern society we have to drop those practices.

Also this has nothing to do with babies it's just about sex. Yes if your either planning or an idiot it can lead to babies, but it can be easily stated that the majority of sex does not have the intent of children. Courtship in highly social animals ie: humans is more about building relationships than having children.

We're not like birds where the males put on shows to impress women. Even in ancient times courtship was a two way thing. It wasn't until the concept of marriage that the idea of purity became a thing.

Strict gender rolls are limiting the potential of both parties. The belief that women always make better parents leaves a lot kids in the custody of incompetent mothers. The belief that men always make better employees leaves a lot of women with unused potential.

I agree with you completely, and I do think it's ridiculous that people still have to think that men have to be the ones to "chase" after a significant other. I don't really care if a woman is "pure" or not either, but I would like to have someone with less experience. I am someone with little experience in that, too, but I just honestly don't care about sex, so I don't chase after it. As an insecure guy though I just feel intimidated with someone with a lot of experience.

Thank you. I plan do approach my parenting (if I do ever have a kid) in a completely different way than my parents did. I want to learn from my parents mistakes not take out my frustration growing up with them on a kid who doesn't deserve it.

Great quote from one of my favorite psychologists:

"Children have basic inalienable rights—to be fed, clothed, sheltered, and protected. But along with these physical rights, they have the right to be nurtured emotionally, to have their feelings respected, and to be treated in ways that allow them to develop a sense of self-worth. Children also have the right to be guided by appropriate parental limits on their behavior, to make mistakes, and to be disciplined without being physically or emotionally abused. Finally, children have a right to be children. They have a right to spend their early years being playful, spontaneous, and irresponsible. Naturally, as children grow older, loving parents will nourish their maturity by giving them certain responsibilities and household duties, but never at the expense of childhood."

Kind of unrelated, but it's something that a lot of people don't understand.

It just sounds to me that you had a bad parent, (and, no offense meant here, that you might be projecting that on pretty much all disciplinary physical contact directed towards children) . one key to being a good parent is to never discipline in anger. I can recall several times when my actions angered my dad and he made a point to tell me that he would deal with me later, (so that latter I knew what I was getting it for) then leave and calm down before I got my spanking, or he would have mom who was not angry do it, and whether I wanted to admit it (which I never did) or not I knew that I deserved it.
#237 - tastycrisps (04/25/2015) [-]
You are lucky enough to have two parents who were mature enough to handle physical discipline in an objective way. But the problem is even a pretty normal parent can get carried away and improperly smack their kid.

It's easier to just expect all parents, even mature ones, to avoid physical discipline because it's impossible to hand out spanking licenses. We can't risk the physical and mental safety of so many kids by encouraging this kind of discipline.

Other forms can substitute just fine, without fucking up a child. Keeping all forms of hitting off limits is a way to protect the kids with parents who can't handle it.

Some kids would really benefit from a swift kick in the ass.
We've all seen those kids.
Although that has little to do with school, you should never spank a kid cuz they're fucking up in school.
Only time I gave my nephew a good pop on the ass is after the 3rd time he rode his little bike into the street cuz he thought I wasn't watching anymore. Car had to slam on it's breaks to avoid killing his dumb ass. It was nearly a natural reaction to take a swing at his butt as he ran past me.

That is a perfectly good time, as long as you didn't project your anger into the smack, it was a good call.

But we can't trust parents to make that call every time, too much power and no way to check it.

Hitting someone who can't or won't fight back is the ultimate form of cowardice. It takes strength to hold yourself back and to discipline a shithead child in a way that is mature and effective.
#224 - naroemcgarson (04/25/2015) [-]
There is a huge difference between beating a child, and discipling a child through the tactical application of minor pain even if the pain dose not seem minor to the child at the time. Their asses sting for ten or twenty seconds (that seems like an eternity to them) then it fades and they are over it and now they know better. I speak from my own childhood experience, and I had a lot of experience.

#271 - lolibear (04/25/2015) [-]
I under stand your point, and in a way you are right, but as tastycrisps said, it puts too much power in the hands of the adult. For every kid that receives proper discipline and is only hit when it is appropriate, and not in a dangerous way to the kid, there is a kid that gets hit whenever the adult is angry, or hit far too hard by an adult that doesn't realize their own strength over a kid. This isn't political correctness preventing us from properly disciplining our kids, this is society preventing serious and dangerous abuse at the cost of making parents have to learn how to discipline kids the harder, but equally effective.

The whole basis of your argument is that a child is going to act like a rational adult when force is applied towards them.
First, You know nothing about how a child reacts to negative outside stimuli.
Full stop.
Kids go into sort of a "Shock" when they get hit by someone whom they think is in charge. At that point, words go in one ear and out the other. they don't learn anything and your own experience having been "taught" that way is a big exception and not a rule.
No matter how many of your hick friends agree with you.
#245 - greenitthe (04/25/2015) [-]
I don't think I need to bring up the hot stove thing, but I kind of want to see how you argue against it, so I'll mention not mentioning it.

Faggot, their experience is not an 'exception' any more than the result where the kids get seriously messed up. It depends entirely on the circumstances. Largely it depends on whether the parent is using pain as a tool, or using violence as a way to let off steam. Also, it depends on the kid's mindset (which is another parent issue), if the kid just gives absolutely no fucks, the parents did something wrong during the child's development.

Would you kindly provide some sauce on your "words go in one ear and out the other" point? It sounds like some bullshit.

Don't disappoint me faggot, this better be an actual argument and not some cheap bait
#240 - naroemcgarson (04/25/2015) [-]
First I do not and never have expected a child to act like a rational adult, (and if i ever did see a child acting like one my heart would weep in pity, and anger at the one who brought such behavior about).
Second I do know how a child reacts to negative outside stimuli, I was one and whats more I have 3 nieces and 3 nephews.
Third your are right, they go into a kind of shock, and do you know what goes through their minds? "What did I do wrong" and (providing that it was actual discipline and not a bad parent striking a the child without a true reason) more often than not they _ know_ what they did wrong and if they don't, they ask. The shock leaves a negative imprint about that activity and every following shock received as a result of said activity reinforces the notion that they should not do it again.
#228 - tastycrisps (04/25/2015) [-]
That can be entirely true.

The thing is most parents don't know how or when to apply an appropriate spank. Usually when a parent hits a kid it's because they got really angry. A pissed parent won't know the right amount of force, timing, etc.

I'm speaking somewhat from my own experiences and from what I know about parental psychology.

When I was young, 6 or 7 maybe, I got separated from my dad at the mall. One minute I was looking at a cute stuffed animal and then he was gone. I tried my best to find him, at first I stayed put thinking he may come back, then I wandered the general area to find him. Almost an hour passed and I still couldn't find him and was holding back tears (crying for me was the ultimate form of weakness). Finally I saw him across an isle and ran towards him, arms outstretched to hug his legs in relief. Before I could do so, he smacked me on the head so hard I stumbled and fell sideways. Now I was crying, having no idea what I did wrong, and had to then endure him furiously scolding me.

Me being lost made him worried, and he directed that worry into anger, and that anger into physical harm. He didn't hit me to discipline me for a bad decision, he hit be because I made him angry. Events like this happened throughout my childhood, where I did something by accident that pissed him off, and he would hit me. He never actually beat me. I never went to school with a black eye or bruises. But every time he hit me was because he was angry enough to overcome his self-control.

Physical discipline is, more often than not, a result of a parent losing their cool. Punishments should never stem from emotion or they just become revenge and not education.

It just sounds to me that you had a bad parent, (and, no offense meant here, that you might be projecting that on pretty much all disciplinary physical contact directed towards children) . one key to being a good parent is to never discipline in anger. I can recall several times when my actions angered my dad and he made a point to tell me that he would deal with me later, (so that latter I knew what I was getting it for) then leave and calm down before I got my spanking, or he would have mom who was not angry do it, and whether I wanted to admit it (which I never did) or not I knew that I deserved it.

You are lucky enough to have two parents who were mature enough to handle physical discipline in an objective way. But the problem is even a pretty normal parent can get carried away and improperly smack their kid.

It's easier to just expect all parents, even mature ones, to avoid physical discipline because it's impossible to hand out spanking licenses. We can't risk the physical and mental safety of so many kids by encouraging this kind of discipline.

Other forms can substitute just fine, without fucking up a child. Keeping all forms of hitting off limits is a way to protect the kids with parents who can't handle it.

As an alternate form of punishment, my parents forced me to eat spicy foods if I did something wrong
I don't spices and I think that's why
User avatar #348 - tastycrisps (04/25/2015) [-]
My mother did the same thing when I cursed. It was pain, definitely, but not directly inflicted by an adult and thus more appropriate.
#244 - naroemcgarson (04/25/2015) [-]
Well ultimately I disagree, but you do have a valid point and you are entitled to your own opinion so, (and I do mean this in a very positive way) good luck raising any children you do or may have. May they turn out well, happy and above all joyful.

Thank you. I plan do approach my parenting (if I do ever have a kid) in a completely different way than my parents did. I want to learn from my parents mistakes not take out my frustration growing up with them on a kid who doesn't deserve it.

Great quote from one of my favorite psychologists:

"Children have basic inalienable rights—to be fed, clothed, sheltered, and protected. But along with these physical rights, they have the right to be nurtured emotionally, to have their feelings respected, and to be treated in ways that allow them to develop a sense of self-worth. Children also have the right to be guided by appropriate parental limits on their behavior, to make mistakes, and to be disciplined without being physically or emotionally abused. Finally, children have a right to be children. They have a right to spend their early years being playful, spontaneous, and irresponsible. Naturally, as children grow older, loving parents will nourish their maturity by giving them certain responsibilities and household duties, but never at the expense of childhood."

Kind of unrelated, but it's something that a lot of people don't understand.
