    Nah, it's worse in department stores because they're so damn busy. I generally just but makeup from Boots or just buy it online :yep:

    NO department stores are worse. The counter girls are always so horrible

    Do you have a statistic for deaths from being kicked in the balls?
    I wasn't comparing the two but the way you phrased it sounded like it happens all the time. 0.0086% chance of death from childbirth. That's incredibly low.

    To use your wording; several minutes? Try several hours.
    Again, I didn't compare the two but I just corrected your misconception.

    8.6 fatalities per 100,000 maternities


    Split second? Try several minutes. Still very painful.
    Mate, you haven't been kicked there properly, if the person kicks hard enough, the pain can last for ages. My mate ended up throwing up blood when he got kicked there.

    Yeah, but isn't it still more likely than dying from being kicked in the balls?

    Oh, and if we're talking pain, there's a whole host of way childbirth can be thoroughly damaging. When my sister was born, her shoulder caught on my mum's cervix and ruptured it.

    From this Yahoo! answers page, women have shared their experiences:


    • "like someone is holding a lighter to your bits"
    • "feels like your 'down below' has been attacked by a red hot poker"
    • "I wondered why in the hell women do this more than once"
    • "if you can imaging trying to push out a watermelon through your vagina but also imagine that it is on fire!"

    The 'Up & Tuck'

    At least I would hope that this is only known by men and not by women...

    Why not wear leggings? I do, or if I must, I wear shorts over my tights!


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I like leggings with a long top, but not with dresses I need to get some good leggings though! I don't have any

    (Original post by Lexi99)
    When i wear tights i just roll the top of the tights down to my hips, the same as my underwear line, otherwise the pressure of it on my tummy gives me a tummy ache. Either that or you have to pull them under your boobs, not sexy.

    Or sometimes stockings. Or just dont wear any
    If I roll 'em to my hips, they push my belly out and give me a big overhang!

    That men don't usually pretend to want to be a girl's friend to sleep with them.

    Edit: If it isn't clear I'll clarify, men become friends with women because they want to be friends with them. Simple, right? And if they also want to have sex with them that doesn't usually take away from that. They still want to be friends for other reasons.
    Yeah, most guys do. It isn't always the case, however: some guys, - the stereotypical "nice guys" - will become friends with a girl just because they want to have sex with her, and there are no other reasons. Me, and quite a few other girls I know, have had male friends refuse to speak to us because we didn't respond to their romantic advances (though we still turned them down politely). Granted, most of them had a reputation for being a bit creepy but it definitely happens.

    No you can't. Ever.

    We know when a guy is checking us out. We know when a guy has 'subtly' groped us in a club. We know when a guy fancies us, it's not rocket science to work out.

    Also re the getting ready thing. I don't think guys appreciate how long it takes for hair to dry. Men can have a shower and go out within 20 minutes. Even if their hair hasn't yet dried it will do quickly and will look exactly the same. Left to dry on it own my hair takes a minimum of 3 hours and will always look lanky and straight, bleh. And also, don't whine about it because we all know you'd rather have a women who takes pride in her appearance than one who doesn't.
    This definitely isn't true, I could give many examples about my girlfriend but essentially all the needs to be said is that you wouldn't KNOW when you didn't know. -_-
    It is ridiculous to assert that you always know.

    Those aren't nice guys. So what's the stereotype of "nice guys" because apparently we have different definitions.

    It's quite a well-known stereotype, unfortunately, Google it:

    Obviously they aren't genuinely nice people. I think everyone knows a few!

    Have you heard of a penis per chance?
    Yes...I'm not really sure what you're trying to say. Having sex is different to knocking your vagina on a table corner :confused: I hope you realise that...
