    I have similar trouble with guys xD I'm sure as people get older there'll be more mature people who fit what you're looking for?
    You think you've got problems and you're 16.

    My goodness. Wait till you're 20. Trying to find that home-boy that isn't a mentally ill recluse. Good. Luck. :P

    Lol. I feel like some grand apologist for TSR girls after making this thread. Obviously a lot of TSR girls are like that, but it's just a coincidence I made on this forum - it's the only 'generic' forum I frequent.

    Anyways, yeah, keep rocking that home girl life. It's not freaky. It's not odd. Okay, maybe it is odd. But it's damn well awesome nonetheless!

    Hey, it's often a good thing to be different from the flock. The flock doesn't innovate. The flock isn't unique or interesting.

    P.S I'm saying the D because everyone is obsessed about someone's D in particular and I have to say D because of profanity really annoying TSR mods and TSRians alike.

    Well. I find it very difficult personally to find that correct sort of person at university. And libraries are incredibly awkward places to try and befriend strangers in. With regards to martial art clubs, I've been doing martial arts for a very long time but I have to say I struggle to find homely, romantic, intelligent sorts at martial arts clubs hahahaha. Without being overly stereotypical that's my totally unscientific anecdotal analysis of them :P

    I'm gonna go wild talking to strangers in lectures when I return to uni for my third year if I am not satisfied by then, however, I've got a year out from uni until then and don't really want to be single for that time.

    And concerning TSR the actual chance of someone being close to me in this vast country is rather low. It has happened before though. Twice actually. So it's possible.
    what do you find at martial arts clubs then?

    no women?

    not trying to be harsh but maybe the fact you describe yourself as 'hopelessly romantic' is part of the problem. Most women, especially the attractive ones with options (the ones people want) dont want sappy romantics/softies for the most part

    Yeah fair dos, I guess if you need to get it off your chest even if it's not exactly relevant to us lot then here's still a decent place to do so!

    Thanks that's actually made my day people need to speak to people like this more often... Like you're cheering someone on in a race, self esteem boost of the day. Eee.

    Kid.

    I was exaggerating the description for a reason.

    I do mixed martial arts. I work security. I am a licensed door supervisor. I will be a police officer in November. I can big myself up and talk ******** about that if I want to.

    The joke just flew over your head.

    A lot of women, I think, would love a guy that was simultaneously extremely horny and very sexually open minded (and physically fit, confident, able to take control of situations ya-da, ya-da, ya-da), but also loyal and romantic. Best of both worlds right? And outside of the uni environment I bet most women would rather someone with the latter two traits than the first two I mentioned anyway.

    One would think in such an instance they would go a step further and try online dating. Perhaps the ceaseless horde of desperate, immature, boys that populate the online dating world puts them off from that though...

    Hmm. It surprises me that that affected you even slightly so. But good to hear. Unfortunately more people aren't going to speak like that more often though because, as you know, too few are like me and you lol. I guess that's why it is nice to actually hear it for a change...

    The joke being that one obviously would not expect to find the soppiest of all men at martial arts clubs - especially not MMA ones lol. I found that quite a funny prospect... Shame it didn't trigger first time for you

    University martial arts clubs are a bit different :P

    90% of the people at my MMA club did not attend/do not attend university.

    Nah. They're more into BJJ and dodgy karate systems that are not really practical but constantly preach **** about ethics and philosophy lol.

    Obviously you do get the odd exception. But mostly, at least from my experience of attending a meagre 2 MMA classes, the stereotype holds true.

    I'm the weirdo lol. The guy who studies all the submission techniques ridiculous intimately and tries to get academic with it and everyone else is like "coach, please get to stop asking these questions" haha.

    I like it though. We train a lot harder and a lot more realistically than we did at the two MT gyms I've attended and all the previous shotokan karate gyms too.
