    Then once you get there, try to think of interesting things to say that might entice said dude. But, not trusting your intuition, you just decide to start asking them questions about themselves (b/c everyone likes to talk about themselves).

    This is what its like to be a guy...

    It's funny how girls sometimes complain about guys putting an effort into trying have a good time.

    If it was me, I'd just be excited to have a girl interested.

    Nice.

    Although I do agree with her (I hate dinner dates), sometimes it's the safe thing to do until you get a good idea what she's into.

    Unless the girl has some crazy allergies, I usually like to do something outdoors, especially when it's nice. I love dates that are active; you either grab some food in the process or have it with you, and you spend the time actively engaged with each other and your surroundings.

    Her (with arms full of groceries): "There's a lot more groceries in the car."
    Me (reading fishing magazine): "Aww honey, I'm sorry. You've sure got a lot to do. Why don't you put your feet up when you're done?"
    Her: [AHEM] "I said, THERE'S A LOT MORE GROCERIES IN THE CAR."
    Me (looking up from magazine): "I know, hon. I was expressing sympathy and understanding for your plight."
    Her: [FUME FUME FUME]

    ...and I wonder why I don't get laid much...

    What I was basically trying to get at was that we're trying, and we like you.

    And that should be what counts.

    No, of course I'm not serious! I was writing for laughs.

    It may come as a shock, but I do that sometimes.

    I got that- that's what sparked "Nice" comment.

    The rest was trying to see from her side as well, although I'd hope she'd learn to see it from the angle you have stated.

    [serious]In job interviews, like in dates there's always this point where you've got the necessities out of the way, you are confident you've got the job, and you can focus on getting to know each other. That part makes job interviews and dates fun and exciting.[/serious]

    1) Continuously going back to the same jerk over and over again even after you complain to me how he's constantly treating you like crap. Move on honey, you're better than this guy!

    2) Not all women do this, but the ones who ask, "Why do all men lie?". We all don't, you just happen to keep picking lying shitbags over and over again.

    3) Woman who ask me for my opinion on something and then summarily dismiss it (What dress should you wear, what movie should we see, what music do you want to listen too, etc..). I mean, I can put up with it for a long long time but after a while I'm going to start to wonder why I should bother to exert the effort to answer you if you're not going to listen to me anyway.

    4) Women who tell me how fat/ugly/worthless/whatever they are. You ladies can be unbelievably hard on yourselves and often times it's entirely unjustified. If you're unhappy with something about yourself, try to change it rather than just sit there and tear yourself down (and I'll support you the whole time ). Your brutality toward yourself is only going to bring me down and turn me off. STOP IT!
