    We're Programmed This Way!

    If you read up on evolution, one of the key themes is that females are in competition with one another.  Our female brains are programmed to desire the strongest, healthiest man who will father healthy babies to keep the human population existing.  Since we're supposed...

    Okay, so....from my personal experiences I find that being friends with other females is very difficult. Mainly because a lot I've attempted to befriend have been two-faced, catty *******. I am in no way saying ALL women are like this. I just find guys easier to get along with...

    After two semesters on campus, you'd think i would have found some girls, at least one girl I liked and could tolerate enough to live with.  But no, I am now living in a 3rd floor single far from all of my friends and near a bathroom, meaning I'll be hearing toilets flushing...

    Impossible, Almost.

    Male and female are very different. Easy and yet not so simple to elaborate. Women are more critical in what they want or need. Whereas men are more easy going. They follow their eyes, needs and urges. Women follow their eyes and their hearts. Very seldom their heads. They get...

    All Females Hate Me Instantly.

    I've never been able to befriend another girl, though I am one. Why? I don't know. They all just bully, as I'm not cool/pretty enough according to their standards to have the right to talk to them. Apparently no one has empathy anymore. They judge people extremely harsh. In my...

    It's so hard making female friends.

    I only have one friend. That's a gay guy. I realize I can't make female friends because... Girls always want to f-uck your boyfriend. Treat themselves better then you. Always compete with you like it's a pageant, always talking bull behind your back when you Difficult days. It...

    I Find It Difficult To Make Female Friends

    Since I was a child, I was naturally blonde with a pretty face. I know, it sounds vain, but I will explain my reason. I was a shy wall-flower who was always pressured to be up front in the x-mas plays as the tall pretty angel or never allowed to play in the dirt (where I...

    I Don't Know Why Women Are Scared of Me...

    I guess I just can't relate very well in "real life". I just can't care about gossip and shoes and her boyfriend's lack of penis and can't feign interest. Rock chicks are cool, they can burp with the boys...I love them. :) I can't be who I'm not.

    They Deem My Giving Them Friendly Attention As Wanting Sex.

    And they play it off so cool. They even give phone numbers. Not that it matters, but if you aren't going to answer, text, or god forbid, MAKE A CALL(?), why did you do it if you were just going to drop me like that? It's not impossible to find female friends but I find it hard...
