    From Urban Dictionary:
    1. \tslut: a woman with the morals of a man
    3. \tslut: A derogatory term.

    Refers to a sexually promiscuous person, usually female.

    One who engages in sexual activity with a large number of persons, occasionally simultaneously.

    Also refers to one who engages in sexual activity outside of a long-term relationship within the duration of said relationship.

    These sexual activities include but are not limited to: passionate kissing, manual stimulation of genitalia and/or breasts in the case of a female; oral stimulation of these parts; sexual intercourse.

    In some cases, used to refer to a woman who is wearing "skimpy" or tasteless clothing.

    Less commonly, used as a derogatory term by one female for another during periods of conflict.

    Synonyms: whore, tramp. Derivations: slutty (adj.), sluttier/sluttiest (superlatives). Related Adjectives: easy; immoral; loose; cheap.

    Back to me: My experience has been a girl who you date for a year then you find out she has had sex with more people than she can count/remember and often would do it to feel "loved" by anyone. See also: Mental problems

    A while ago, someone posted a link to an article about attractiveness, which pointed out that being with an attractive woman boosts a man's perceived worth in the eyes of others.

    Anecdotal evidence seems to support this, at least in my case. Pussycat is not beautiful but has a very sweet and agreeable personality, which is why I've been able to stay with her so long. All my friends tell me, so what about the personality? you can do way better.

    Recently, I met a beauty whom I've started going out with. I've told Pussycat, and she's not exactly thrilled, but she knows I'm being totally honest with her and not doing anything behind her back. The thing is, the more beautiful woman is also better educated and speaks outstanding English (which would be a factor if I were to marry a Japanese woman and return to the States one day, even just so she could meet my family).

    Anyway, the new woman would make a far better long-term partner for me, if we have the potential to develop into that, which at this point it is too early to tell. Meanwhile, Pussycat has been a sweet and faithful girlfriend for the better part of four years, though without any pretense that we would ever even live together much less that it would develop into a marriage.

    Anyway, it's interesting to be dealing with both sides of this equation at once.

    This sounds like it stems from insecurity. The idea that a woman who could have had any other man chose you ergo you are somehow better than all the other men. Then projecting it onto what you feel others opinions of you may be. (I wasnt speaking to you NR directly, just using the term "you" generally.)

    I wish you the best in your new relationship since you have been on the verge of leaving Pcat for some time now.

    Women who dont think a relationship that doesnt end in marriage is a failure are very few and far in between. As for the slut thing, maybe for another time.

    She's gorgeous, tall, has excellent taste, is from a good family that's as full of anecdotes as mine, and could talk the hind legs off a donkey. She's also married.

    This changes the outlook.

    An unattractive person might have less sexual prowess due to less practice. At least early in a relationship, which might not continue if the sex is unsatisfying. "Taste" based on physical attractiveness is plausible, as smell is linked to a somewhat subjective form of rated attractiveness.

    Somewhat wise words from an otherwise foolish man:

    "It's not that older women are better. They just work a bit more and are more appreciative"

    Sorry to hear, NR.

    It may be related to insecurity in some cases but it is borne out empirically and even in some studies if I am not mistaken.

    You can’t use a word in its own definition. You have already admitted that girl a. is beautiful despite what she was wearing as apposed to girl b. whose saving grace is what she is wearing. Beauty in the physical sense is quite quantifiable, taste is subjective.
    A girl with less beauty in the quantifiable sense (i.e. a little chunkier, or a less symmetrical face) is to me, more beautiful than one who has a very symmetrical face but has personal style that is not to my taste. To be honest it really breaks down to, she has to care about her looks, but not too much. Picky? I know. I didn't know the term "beautiful" only applies to the quanitifiable version.

    Tell me about it.

    It might provide me with the inspiration to continue that execrable dreck about the muskrats.

    In all honesty, the whole enterprise was an attempt to beguile stultifyingly boring days in the office, but thanks for giving me the benefit of the doubt. [​IMG]

    Is it just me or does she have the most unctouos complexion. Whenever I see her on the MTV she looks like she moisturizes with Crisco.
