    This is not just a TSR thing, I remember a guy in my Year 9 class saying, I chat a lot of *******s. It's funny because I have lots of professionals trying to convince me I am smart but I am not, or I would not profusely chat tripe on a regular basis. However, the fact I chatted *******s when 14 suggests this is not just limited to relationships. :/

    Being smart does not preclude you from talking nonsense, and talking nonsense does not mean someone is stupid.

    If you feel it's getting you down, talk only about things you know to be fact and then listen to and absorb the opinions of others on those facts.

    as an example, I pulled out the statistic than 20-30% of men in this country are FA incels

    another, that women are more likely to cheat on men with round faces [there is some evidence for this during ovulation period]

    etc.

    this is frustrating me: I post about the rise of fitness models taking lots of selfless and pointing to narcissism or promoting supplements as the reason etc., and I got told I must be a pizza-loving fatty.

    Has it occurred to you that not everything you read online is true?

    Not sure how that thread relates to my point, but I'll repeat: not everything you read online [which always seems to reinforce your negative world view] is true. For an intelligent person (and I do think you're intelligent), you don't seem to be at all discerning in terms of what you read and its veracity.

    Maker is not a known troll, just dislikes me I think. He'd have no reason to post false stories just to rile me up, more likely just completely disagrees with me. His point is essentially that I am whining about fitness models because I'm jealous. It is true, but the thread was created to help deal with it, and seek alternatives.

    ...so if someone disagrees with you, who's to say that they're right and you're wrong?

    historically a lot of what I say is plain wrong, sometimes I have to let other people win just to avoid victim mentality.

    a person doesn't have to be a troll to say things that aren't true..

    he obviously had quite a low opinion of the type of person who wines about fitness models (and he assumes me to be one of those by looking at thread)

    no it;'s not! However I don't know all the rules of life/the game/society etc. yet, so I still need to ask questions regarding them (like my other thread) so that I don't end up breaking any with my behaviour/attitudes etc.
