1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

Can you actually become a handsome guy or is it mostly genetics?

    Out of all of the posts in this thread, this is the one that pissed me off. What the fuck do you mean WE? You joined this site this month. You are not we, you are some bitter loser who can't figure out that your personality is the reason girls won't touch you. As a side note, I would bet a thousand dollars this kid is the kind of person who thinks he's a nice guy and gets friend zoned when in reality his desperate attitude and judging by his posts, the excessive amount of time he spends checking out other dudes is what is hindering his progress. Thirdly, and most seriously, the only thing that matters to a girl is confidence and making her feel special when she is with you. I have seen many fat ugly guys bag hot girls because they were fun guys and could make a girl laugh.

    ^I have seen fat, ugly guys bag hot girls, not often, but I have seen it. Invariably, they had money--plenty of it.

    Actually, any guy who is good at making girls laugh has an extraordinary talent: Women are inherently foul-tempered creatures with absolutely no sense of humor. I think any man with considerable experience with the opposite sex will agree with me.

    I think too many gentically good looking men and women think they dont have to make an effort . This costs them in anything beyond short term . Funny or money or preferably both are real powerhouses . Smart is good but there are so few smart women who arn't ball busters . Not saying they don't exist just a rarity . Appearing unavailable seems to attract women ime .
    So wacha got. Be funny , appear self supporting and possibly unavailable,dress well (this is huge) and seem interested in things beyond yourself . If this doesnt work you are probably looking in the wrong places.

    There's something to this. I think it ends up hurting women worse than men, for a couple reasons. Men aren't usually as tempted to coast on looks because the societal expectations for men are larger than simply looking good. We're supposed to have money, be powerful, etc, etc. To get those things, even attractive men have to work hard, develop a personality, all that. Women, well, too many pretty women are content to just be pretty and take what comes with that, without developing the rest of their self. Either they end up shallow or they're lost when their looks begin to go. Men also get a pass on that front, as we're considered good looking for longer than women.

    That's one of the reasons I think a lot of guys who focus on scoring hot chicks end up thinking that women are all shallow bitches. A larger number of extremely attractive women are shallow and bitchy, because they can get away with it. Dial your expectations on looks back a bit and you find a lot more fully developed human beings.

    Certainly there are fully developed extremely hot women, but they're awfully hard to find and hard to land if you do.

    I'm sure I've shared my concept of "pretty girl syndrome" here before?

    I dont know how old you are but if you have made these realizations at a relatively early point in your life you have saved yourself a lot of potential misery . On the other hand if you are like me and have learned these things the hard way then all I can say is I hear you brother.
    One other thing I have learned is that women in general are much less visual than men in regards to sexual attraction . A fact for which I shall be eternally grateful

    I know some pretty gross dudes who don't have money that have hot girlfriends just because they make girls laugh. Guys tend to forget that the reason girls are so foul tempered is because they feel guarded and have to deal with douche bags getting in their personal space on a daily basis. I am in Miami right now and just saw this girl in the hotel lobby walking to her room at 630 in the morning get hit on by guy who basically cornered her and wouldn't let her leave until he could feel her "toned calves". This was all happening while 3 of his drunk and rather large friends were standing around her. I feel like bullshit like that happening to you regularly may make you a little more foul tempered. And lets face it, if you are actively trying to be funny to a girl you probably have an end goal of getting her naked, as does every other guy she talks to that night.

    Pretty Girl Syndrome is pretty self-explanatory. They feel they will be treated special because they are pretty. They feel they can get away with shit on the job, get preferential treatment in social situations, etc., merely because they are pretty. The reason they feel this way is because they are correct 99.9% of the time. I have no use for this type of personality and shut them down immediately and without mercy. What I've noticed is this brings pretty much only two reactions. One is they will immediately hate you and the other is they will immediately become submissive and/or attracted to you. These two reactions do not happen together but rather on an either/or basis.

    Ive been doing this since high school and I seem to have developed a vibe so they dont even try they . They just hate me on sight. This is understandable and fortunate . Its the nice ones who are attracted to me that cause problems

    It was honestly hilarious dealing with College Freshmen Pretty Girls. They thought they could get away with anything by flirting and/or showing a little skin. And it was so obvious, like at least be a tiny little bit subtle when you're trying to manipulate me. It blew their little minds when I actually expected the same level of work out of them as everybody else and wouldn't give in to their shit. Sorry, princess.

    Was fun to watch the show sometimes though.

    What's creepy is that this probably worked great on their high school teachers when they were 17.

    Ha! If you think women are foul tempered because they are young and pretty and hit upon a lot by guys, just wait until they are old and not so pretty and not hit upon by guys. Then, they are really, really foul-tempered and take it all out on their husbands while maintaining a veneer of outward charm to the rest of the world.

    Also just a slightly more sexualized version of what they probably did to manipulate Daddy their whole life. Flutter them eyelashes, how could he deny his little princess?

    She's just playing you on the line, Mr. Fish, waiting to reel you in and set that gaff hook into your gills!
