    Any guy who regularly gets into fights (more than the once or twice in a lifetime need to defend himself or something) I just wouldn't consider. It would really put me off. I'd wonder what he thought he needed to prove.

    Is that against anyone, or just when you are confronted with the might that is Mayhem?

    Other mortals hold no fear for me, but MayhemAM is something different, something special, he IS the Scrapper!

    Girls in the past have tried to chat me up by mentioning which girl they'd just beaten up in the toilet... It definitely doesn't work. A girl that suddenly seems quite friendly, ends up appearing a bit weird and full of issues.

    I dont know why but this summer I have been getting in a fair few small fights/scraps. I dont claim to be Muhammad Ali or anything, but I can handle myself against the majority of people, even though I look scrawny. I train a lot in martial arts and am a big fitness fan but dont do weights of anything, and look more 'athletic' than big. Dont go to gym as I find it incredibly boring.

    I find that when girls first find out I train a lot in martial arts they find it a bit of a turn on. I never bring it up or speak much about it, but if someone asks me what I did last night then I will tell them.

    The problem arises when they say "have you ever used it?" as if I am Jean-Claude Van Damme. I normally say "only once or twice to stop these chavs" and it is only once I bring up that I have gotten into the odd fight or two that they find it a bit of a turn off

    i.e- their train of thought is

    "wow, he can handle himself"

    to

    "eugh, violent man"


    is this true for girls? In future my response will always be "luckily I havnt had to yet".

    Depends on the girl, of course, but I agree with the others who have posted... The whole petty street fighting thing is a bit meh (but commitment to martial arts is kinda hot)

    Fighting for a good reason though, (e.g. if some bloke broke your sister's heart or something) rarely, might be an okay, he's really protective kind of thing though

    Yeah, seriously, you'd pretty much stop existing to me. To be fair, when guys try to brag to me about "punching this kid's head in" (naturally, this kid is on average about three years younger than them, and several inches shorter), I usually laugh in their face.
