    I hear ya. We're facing a major deficit of decent men
    So...how much does a trip to Canada cost nowadays?

    (Original post by psycho(logist))
    Oh, that's no fault of your own. Guys simply don't know how to converse. The gray matter in their brains that was meant to be used for conversational skills accidentally got replaced with extra sex-drive.

    It's true. :rolleyes:
    Bah, you can't prove that :p:
    Depends on the guy, though...the stereotype, which admittedly quite a lot of guys fall into, is as you described there...however, I generally am rather nervous when talking to people (irrespective of gender) unless I feel really comfortable with them. It's not that I'm thinking about having sex with them that I can't talk to them properly
    I said "generally", because I have known for there to be a couple of exceptions over the years; not too many, though

    I needn't prove anything; it has already been proven.
    Well... maybe not my exact theory.. but something close to it.

    Mm hmm. Sure.

    As a matter of fact, research has shown that (approx.) 30% of arousal in men results just from talking to a good looking person of the opposite gender. (unless you're gay - then I don't know what the stats are)

    :rolleyes: .. I do love psychology.

    So basically, is uni actually going to be any different in terms of guys being more erm sociable, so to speak? I thought maybe they grew out of it or something. *wishful thinking*

    Well, you meet a lot of people at uni so you'll have the opportunity to meet the 'right sort' of person.

    Taking advantage of opportunities is down to you.

    I'd say "yes"...but then, I actually became more sociable the year before uni (had moved house just before my final year of school)...

    Yeah, guys get faced with the situation that they don't know ANYONE at the uni, so they've got to go out and socialise. It's not that they "grow out of it" (I'm still an anti-social git - but I'll socialise whenever I feel like it), but it's a stage in adapting to their new environment. There's still a chance that they'll revert back to their old ways after a while.

    Smell the sarcasm :rolleyes:
    I'm being honest, hun - I'm someone who doesn't think with my ****...I may have followed the stereotype when I was 14, but not any more :p:

    Yes. But how do I know that you're not lying?

    ................. or lying about lying, for that matter? :wtf?:

    What would be the qualities, regarding both looks and personality, that would attract you to a girl? And if you both start talking, how would you stop the conversation from drying up? Just wondering because I sometimes find conversation with guys I've met for the first time really hard, and it'll seem as though I've just run out of things to say.

    Looks wise I dont seem to have a type, as long as shes pretty! (though I do like a nice arse and humps like the next bloke)

    Personality wise, what I want and what I get is a different thing.

    I want some attitude, no jealousy to be annoying (as girls getting jealous of my friends who are girls annoy me) and underneath all that, a hint of sweetness. That'll do me fine!

    I had my first ever hardly any conversation moment on saturday night,
    I'm never usually like it? I can chat about allsorts for hours. (so i dont think it was me! Ha!) I just bailed and went back to my mates! : )
