    Girl
In summary, my best friend has the misconception that I'm in love with her, but I don't think either of us meant it seriously.

I could go on about what I think as baggage.
OK, now you're speaking a little more reasonably, instead of with sweeping claims.


DanP said:
And yes, I agree with you, I am still a very young man. Any man under 50 should consider himself very young. I pity the fools who feel old in their 30s.
It is not about "considering" onesself young. It's about the mileage. My suggestion was that you were young enough to not have experienced as much in the way of baggage, and so had a comparatively simplistic view of it.

You are pretty much mistaken. I am 37, and I dated on and off (save for pauses for longer term relationships) for over 20 years now. I am just not so inclined to see life as an asylum :P Its probably a simplistic way of life, treating ppl in my life as "normal". But it works, Simple works. Up to you guys if you want to be "complex":devil:

Have you met Chris Hansen?

I have no idea who is that guy. Remember, I do not live in US.

that's pretty far fetched, alluding that men with high testosterone "sexually objectify women"

I didn't allude to anything having to do with a man's testosterone levels; I asked the poster to define how he is using the word "healthy."

Also, calling a woman (or anyone) "a prime slice of @$$," is sexual objectification, Dan.

You keep making these categorical assertions, as if you have access to some truth that others do not.

And that too is common in youngsters. :-p

Sounds like you're calling him immature for a 37 year old Mr C! :biggrin:

I'd be interested to know what you are asserting Dave is "pretty much mistaken" about. You didn't argue anything he actually wrote.

About "baggage". You guys seem to insist that everyone who lives is a mini-psycho. Sorry, but that is simply not true. But then again, it seems common in old man to think like that.

That bothers you Dave ? Smile, life is simple.

No, it's you who's insisting that.

You are the one who is equating baggage with near-psychotic. I speak just for myself (and presume to include Georgina) saying baggage is very common and pretty much a part of life.

See?

Wrong PoV. You insist that bagge is part of a normal person, when it is not. You insist on labeling normal as a person with "baggage".

See ?

It amuses me; it reminds me of my kids, who also have fairly black & white opinions and tend to speak of "wrong" and "false".

I don't insist; I simply have experience of this.


Here's the trouble with your stance:

I claim normally, people have baggage; you claim normally, people do not.

With my stance, both yours and my experiences are valid. (I know lots of people with baggage, you know lots of people that do not.)

With your stance, only your own experiences can be valid. (You knows lots of people who don;t have baggage, yet my experience must be false.)

I can easily falsify your claim because it is more sweeping than you have any business claiming. It excludes other possible experiences.

Maybe you are oversensitive, hence exaggerating this baggage ? Its common in old man. One may see problems where there are none.

Really ? Please do present the proof :P

Why would you assume I'm the one calling it baggage? People know they carry baggage.



DanP said:

You claim that people having baggage is pretty much false. All I have to do is demonstrate that I (and Georgina) do indeed know a significant number of people that have baggage and your claim is laid low.

Note that the corollary is not true; you claiming that you do not know a significant number of people who have baggage does not weaken my claim.

You claim tries to speak for me; my claim does not try to speak for you.

Ok we need to get back to the original thread here. The girl is ignoring phone calls. Guy is persistent, I get it. What about if she is just too scared of a real relationship? What if she doesn't want to settle, feels like she is losing her freedom and independence and just wants to have fun? There might nothing be wrong with the guy, or the girl, its just that if she was to get into a relationship she knows she'll stay, and it will be a long term thing.

What if she is avoiding you because she realizes that with you the search is over.. that the dream of a knight in shiny armor is over and she found him, and its you - the retard in tinfoil?

Really? I thought we'd agreed that he needs to talk to someone about this unhealthy infatuation? And that further hashing of it here would probably just make it worse.
