I thought I'd post smth silly for a change. Hey, did you just think "What change"?!
Anyway, here's a short dialogue I've had with a guy at the mall who was trying to pick me up.
- Hi, how're u doing, looking good, bluh bluh bluh
.. Hey, why don't we go to this honey exhibition nearby, its Medovyi Spas (Honey Savior) this week (religious holiday)?
[Jeebus Christ, another one of those who never questions traditions. Booooring already. And lets see...not my type eather, totally unsexy. I gotta get rid of him.]
- I couldn't care about that, I am an atheist
- Oh.. But you do like honey, right?
- Nope, I'm a honey aitheist as well ))
- But I do eat honey sometimes because its healthy
- Of course...
So, what do you do?
- By education I'm a psychologist
- Oh really, I'm a psychologist too, I work at HR department, have to be like a psychologist there, hiring people. We could use a real psychologist, would you like to join?
[Right, and if I was looking for a job I'd definitely jump on an opportunity to be hired by some guy from the street who has the hots for me so he could stalk me every work day]
- No, thanks, and I actually work in web development and promotion lately
- You make websites? I've always wanted one, would you make one for me?
[Right, and if I'd have said I was a make-up artist he'd claimed he'd always wanted to try wearing make-up]
- No, I don't take any clients, I create my own projects then sell ads on them
- Aha... So do you have a business-card?
- I do but let me tell you straight that it's not gonna work, I'm a very complicated person, I just know myself, but thank you for offering
[Girls, even if you dislike a guy, be nice if he's being nice and polite, for some of them it takes quite an effort to talk to women on the streets, and we don't really wan't them to stop doing it, do we?;)]
- Oh.. You're probably a Scorpio?
- No, I'm not a Scorpio and I don't believe in astrology.
- But you should believe!..
[At this point we decided to take different turns at the shopping mall and said good bye]
Come to think of it, these encounters with regular guys, being predictable and boring, at least make me appreciate how much I enjoy not having to be in a bad company. Hey, gotta keep finding positive aspects! At least I can post a 'lighter' topic on my blog sometimes. And boring guys IS a lighter topic than existential questions, isn't it?))))
not everything on my blog is for them philosopher boys :) but hey, as I said, I'm all for guys trying to pick up girls, awkward or not, at least its some action that might lead to some interesting developments ;)
glad you liked the silly lighter post))
less time insisting on juvenile nervous responses.
That particular guy didn't seem nervous or shy. He seemed manipulative and probably didn't think highly of my or maybe women intelligence in general. I know shy guys, and I kind of like them, at least much better than those 'i'm the best thing that could ever happen to you baby' kind of guys.
The sensibilities of a Russian woman, from at least what I have observed...
Actually, technically, I'm Ukrainian)) Technically, because I don't have a strong feeling of belonging to any nationality, it means nothing to me. I speak Russian in my daily life though, its my native language.
But all in all, maybe Ukrainain and Russian women don't differ that much, we have had that common history not so long ago.
No problem, I just thought I'd make a correction so as not to mislead the readers. But I know Eastern Europeans are often referred to as 'Russians')) Whatever.))
So is it that Russian are ,in fact, a bit more inclined to viewing women with less potential respect than they deserve and see them more often in an objectified manner?
As for the features of men and women in different cultures, I'm always careful with generalizing, you know... I don't think personal accounts, subjective impressions are very reliable. There have got to be a study of attitudes and expectations done to establish culturally shaped stereotypes...
I've met men from many countries, and they've all been different. Sometimes I think generalizing and categorizing others makes people feel safer. For some it's more important than for others. For myself - I treat every person as an individual, thinking about stereotypes seems pointless to me. I'll soon find out what this person is like, why should I care about the rest of them, they're not here right now.))
On a lighter note, do guys that come with those "gift to women" messages ever live up to the expectation they present?
Hehe, I don't stay long enough with them to find out. During the first and the last date we're having they tend not to, that's all I know
Such silly arrogance to me is a sign of an insecure or insensitive personality. This obsession with how many women they're able to 'conquer'. I leave them with their imaginary medals.
hehehe. I'm not saving myself for anybody, i'm saving myself from some guys
if only that guy knew that a conversation about ending human existence through lack of reproduction would have been a fantastic approach lol
lol indeed)) i wish it was a topic most people would have heard about at least. oh well..
sure, cliches are boring, but not fatal. i mean, i don't think theres anything wrong with a man just because he uses a couple of cliche lines when he first meets a girl. but then i usually try to provoke some unusual conversation even at the beginning, why wasting time till we go for a coffee and then i realize i'm stuck with one of those 75% of guys id pay not to have to go out with.
frightened? not that i can remember right now...probably not. i mean, if i was approached by a loner in the woods where i used to take a walk during my silly teenage years, i probably would have been,,, or maybe not...teenage, you know.))
Hmm... do need a guestbook or smth? For feedback about my utube channel and some kind of geeral impressions? Because this post sure is offtopic here and I can't really move it anywhere where it would fit...
Thanks for your feedback anyway. I've nothing to disagree.
"Granted, listening to your views hasn't always been easy"
You can't imagine how uneasy watching my videos makes me feel. So I don't.
