    This guy makes a good point

    Check this out. I think the reason lots of girls don't realize these things is because a lot of them just cain't think on our level, just not as "socially smart" i guess. Not saying all girls, but just tell me whatcha think.

    i think that can hold true for alot of younger girls, and people who's heads are irreperably broken (read: stupid).

    But then, good relationships are always not just hard to find, but require areasonable amount of effort to keep alive.

    Rants like this remind me of a farside comic where God is in the kitchen, the earth is sitting in a pot and God is thinking "and just to make it really interesting..." and he's about to give a good shake on a spice jar labelled "jerks".

    Is that why we have 20 threads a week where teenage boys are complaining how their girlfriends turned out to be mean and nasty?

    Most of the threads are about guys who don't know how to approach a situation.

    I've changed a lot over the past month with my take on girls. I just realized most of the girls I've ever been with or liked were on that lower leve, and they just drive me crazy. No longer am I just going to be with a girl who is just hot/flirty/stupid. I cain't believe I already wasted a precious college semester with one. It may be hopeless but I believe there is a higher form of being out there :teeth:

    My own theory is that people of the same culture tend to behave in close to the same ways if put in the same situation.

    This guy isn't considering certain factors, such as the fact that this 85% of guys that are jerks to their girlfriends are single just as frequently as any other guy, or that these 10 percenters are single for some reason other than because they're unappreciated. Let's face it, if you treated every girl like a princess, you'd almost never be single. Chicks love being worshipped.

    Another thing to consider is that girls care a lot more what other people think of them than guys do, and to this end when a relationship goes sour, a girl will spin the story or even fabricate one so that she's the innocent victim and her ex is an ***. I don't know if it's conscious or not, but it's true. It's documented fact. Girls lie, and I think I'm going to make it a t-shirt. I've caught girls in the act numerous times. Think about how many guys you know who have been cheated on and how many girls you know who will admit to having cheated on someone. The numbers add up for almost noone, a statistical impossibility.

    Seven times out of ten when you hear about a guy being a jerk for no reason, there actually is a reason that somebody's not telling you. There are very few people at all, let alone when broken down by a specific gender, that are so imbalanced as to randomly lash out over nothing. I stand highly opposed to the perpetuation of this urban legend, and it is those who perpetuate this myth that are the jerks.

    Ah, but IW is only half the story.
    IW explains how it is.
    FS explains why it is.

    And as a corollary to:
    I link to this post.

    Pid, I've seen that site lots of times... I've never been a fan of it, maybe I'm just to optimistic.

    That guy can't be more wrong about things, to be honest.

    All he does is make vague observations which apply on a large scale to the stupid masses, and works on it inside in an illogical manner. If I took 5 hours off a day I could probably make a more believable "Ladder'. And I'm sure if a lot of you actually thought about it, you could do the same.

    You have to read the ladder theory to understand it, obviously.

    ugh, now I'm gonna have to go reread it to figure out what the hell that is.

    *goes off to look it up*

    edit: I found it... how dumb. $10 bucks says it never happens to me.

    I hope you're kidding. It will happen, sooner or later. Do you think that every female you get to know in your life will want to **** you?

    I wasn't really looking at the ladder as an actual theory. I was more looking at his generalizations of the friend zone and what he calls "intellectual whores"... since I think most of us that are old enough to have had that experience on the receiving end.
