    I'm never going to have sex anyway. Nobody wants me!
    After reading your profile I am not really surprised. I got about a sentence in before I became bored with your feminist *****.

    Quote me in the future, will you?

    Sorry but I don't think things will change with age. Not for me, anyway. Maybe for you it will.

    Well I was wondering why such a potentially charming young lady would say such a thing. Then I saw the answer. Feminism = very off-putting and annoying to most guys. Almost as bad as hippies in my book.

    May I ask why you regard feminism as such a negative aspect in a girl? Why is it off-putting for a man if a woman wants to be equal? Should we just remain subordinate so we can attract the opposite sex? I don't think so.

    I don't think it's the actual idea behind feminism that is unattractive to many men, it's more the things that come along with it.

    Thank god I know many more open-minded people than you.

    I use condoms. Was on the pill for a year (and yes, sex is better without condoms) but it was a HORRIBLE experience - have thought about trying a different pill but I'm currently not that keen on the idea. And I'll be in an LDR next year so there's not much point. Maybe after that I'll give a different type of pill a try but my boyfriend says it's entirely up to me and he doesn't mind so I'm in no rush

    Guys who say, "GOD no, never would as they're rubbish, but my girlfriend is on the pill," what would you do if she decided she didn't want to be on the pill anymore?

    You don't seem like a free-spirited, easy-going person. You're the kind of person that will always have an agenda.

    That's my experience with most feminists.

    I actually like your directness. But your brand of feminism is devoid of any intellectual merit. People do not tire of your opinions per say, but your pessimistic attitude and approach generally, and your unwillingness to listen to others.

    For example: "I don't think I'm wrong. 'Special something' and "more fish in the water" are just stupid clichés that give men and women false hopes that one day they might get to encounter their 'true love'. I'm realistic, not depressing. It's just the way I think."

    Emotion is derived from the self, and the Other (the 'special someone') merely counterpoints and triggers qualities within the person themselves. I am, like yourself, quite abrasive. If I find a woman who is strong-minded then she is attractive to me; not because I like her intrinsic qualities but because she allows me to use mine, and vice versa. So there are people more suited to particular people, and circumstance dictates a lot.

    You are not in a relationship not because no one likes you but because you do not like others. I assume you fear being hurt especially since that would undermine your intellectual opinions, and the overt feminism is merely a front. For example: why are you so strongly opinionated on birth control when you have yet to lose your virginity (correct me if I am wrong; my memory may fail me)? It would seem unqualified and redundant.

    Sentence in bold: WHAT???
    You seem to be under the impression that I am misfortunate in not wanting a relationship. But you're wrong, it also has it's advantages. That fact, on it's own, does not make me antisocial or mean that I don't like others.
    Also, I see nothing wrong with having an opinion on birth control despite being a virgin. I have done sexual health stuff in class and happen to know a lot about it.

    I should've been but failed twice so far; once 'cause things were getting too heated and both of us didnt have. The second time we were too ****** on mdma to remember. Big mistake and god bless the ECP's. I'm moving to the UK soon and heard that contraceptives are completely free :eek:, which makes getting an implant absolutely worthwhile. You can just get it at the GP?

    The fact you did not understand the sentence suggests you should not be so strongly opinionated, especially since you take psychology.

    I did not call you anti-social, mean or suggest that you were unfortunate in not wanting a relationship. I actually complemented you. But you are incredibly self-concious, which manifests itself as overt self-defensiveness. You dislike listening to others because you believe they are immature and often wrong, which is fine when your opinions are coherent, intelligent and fair. But as my initial paragraph shows - your defensiveness hits a brick wall when you come against someone who knows more than you, but you will never admit this.

    Examples:

    "You can't just judge me like that, you don't even know who I am!"

    "You are pretty clueless as to what feminism is all about. Quote me again when you find out more and become a bit more tolerant. Otherwise, don't bother, you prick."

    If you actually read the posts I was quoting you would understand why I said those things, but you clearly didn't.

    My first quote refers to someone who says im not spirit free and that i have an agenda. they cant know that if they dont know me personally.

    my second quote refers to some prick that doesn't understand what i was talking about and is in denial of what feminsim actually means.

    my third quote refers to someone who insulted my profile, so logically I told them not to read it.

    See how it all makes sense??
