    maybe not so much sex lives but deffo love and relationship lives.

    I have overheard so many girls talking about who's in a relationship, what's happening with this guy, who kissed who, who got with who the night before the morning after, who's Facebook relationship status says who, how long someone's been in a relationship etc. etc. I hear it on the phone, on the bus, in the library, in the shops, you name it.

    I think to myself 'why cant you get a real hobby instead of talking about this rubbish?'

    guys chat about it for all of a few seconds then get on with normal things. girls can't help themselves. why do they do this?

    Why can't you get a real hobby instead of earwigging on girls who say stuff you don't like?

    I think you're a pervert to be honest.

    and for two usually if a girl asks you about your BFf/ GF its just an excuse for her to talk endlessly about hers to you.

    You'd be surprised at the number of guys who do that too, either way, It's simple, their own lives are very boring and they deal with it by living those of others

    Ahh, TSR, home of sweeping generalizations...

    He's knew, he'll learn. We can teach him the ways of the true TSRian.

    Starting with this, apprentice; Absolutely never draw up a generalization. Start with, "Why do many girls" or "I know a lot of girls"

    Following this simple rule will make you 'more' popular among TSR and not a pariah...

    The TSR girls will say they don't indugle in these type of conversations. This further proves my theory of TSR girls not being the same as the real life ones.

    Because they're insecure and feel the need to live comparative lives, constantly consumed by insignificant things that they like to believe is so significant. Also because they have nothing better to do or nothing better going on for themselves.

    You don't expect a successful, independent, driven and extremely occupied woman spending her time snooping around for gossip, then texting all her friends *****ing about it. They simply don't have time for that nonsense.

    Also because the *****es think they're in a real-life sex in the city kind of thing. I pity them, so consumed by what others are doing that they're losing focus on themselves.

    Also there's a great deal of hypocrisy, if they hear a girl slept with whoever it's like OMG WHAT A SLUT! Then if they do the same and guys call her a slut all of a sudden they jump on the feminist brigade saying they can do whatever they want because women have sexual needs to bla bla.

    Not all girls. I was friends with a girl who was like that though. We' re no longer friends.
    Definitely not all girls, I didn't imply that in my post either. It's a minority but they are so annoying and laughable, I just can't take them seriously.
