Thread: This is ONLY for girls!
<<       >>
As for the question about why girls hold grudges longer than (most) guys, I believe that it may have something to do with our memories. Generally speaking, of course, girls or women tend to have a far better emotional memory-because we are mostly more in touch with our emotions, or at least a bit truer to them than our male counterparts, we retain our emotional experiences far longer than they do. We tend to identify our world and experiences by our feelings, while men tend to live by their physical needs or surroundings. It is like tangible vs. intangible-we are more capable of picking up on the subtleties of emotional undercurrents in any given situation, men more capable of seeing the reality of physical being more clearly-not that we cannot also. I hope that makes sense at all!
Perhaps our retention of emotional things is not always a good thing-sometimes I think that we should let certain things go, for our own mental health!
Well im going now. I just cant get rid of that feeling that i forgot something.....
Of course all these are just stereotypical; the opposite cases can be found in either gender, however they generally hold true to form.
In the old days the cure for any cad unmannered enough to slap a womans posterior was a slap in the face from said woman. Even the ones with so little decency they'd fight a woman are prevented from doing so in front of men who no better even if they don't. And, of course, numerous authorities including school officials, law enforcement, and, worst of all (wait for it) THEIR MOTHERS are available. Fathers might laugh and say, "boys will be boys," totally missing the point, but most, if not all, mothers would be apalled, and age really isn't in it. In fact, the older the "boys" in question, the more reprehensible the action because, agiain, they should know better (and probably do.) I can't imagine anything like that happening at any of the schools I attended not so long ago, let alone happening twice. As I recall, my HS principal and his assistants (more them I suspect, he was generally a pretty cool guy who once ran down a punk who thought he could bail on a dressing down and forgot that the sixty something year old man was all state track in his youth) gave people detention for holding hands with their b/gf, but then I live in Texas. Point being, most school officials at all levels often lie awake nights worried about raging hormones; they won't need much incentive to nip this in the bud, if it's still going on (again I say, better late than never.)
Girls often tries to find the meaning or the reason why things are said..we often analyze it to death..
Im the youngest sister of 4 , we used to figth a lot and still we disagree on topics , but I often get critics coz I say things out strigth instead of lying...Most of my friends are actually men coz I find them more honest...
Feel free to answer though
Ever seen the movie Mean Girls? It's such a reflection of Girl World, exaggerated to some extent, perhaps, but still the emotions and the quarreling is soo alike to what we see every day. But like Mellon, I find guys easier to hang around. I go bowling with the guys sometimes, but it's also wise to spend some time with girls too, just to catch up with the gossip, know interesting pieces of info, and especially, keep a good bond with your own sex.
I saw mean girls, i enjoyed it to a point, but the bitchyness in it, are so alike to what i see in youth today, tut tut tut. I thought that the girlgot hit by a bus was most enjoyable
The ending was fitting, though. I'm glad it ended the way it did.
And my apologies to Ereinon. I should've known you were a guy. I actually had a distinct feeling you were a guy, but you never know in this world...
It was just like this big fight between girls while boys watched from the sidelines, waiting to see who won so they could date them.
That reminds me of a certain episode in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, where the Aes Sedai would watch from the sidelines where young men were fighting their butts off, to see whom they could bond as a warder later on.
boop boop beep boop beep
Why, who would've suspected R2D2 is a girl too, or at least the midget inside, is.
Mwahahahahahahhahah Girls we are here in retribution for you invasion of our thread. We'll take over this place.
You know what that mean girls ..Do not mess with us ThorinWe'll hunt you down and kiss you....
How about a makeover? I have a divine shade of magenta lipstick that would suit your complexion so...maybe some violet eyeshadow? A beehive hairdo would look so nice with your beard! Well, if not a makeover, how about we talk about your wardrobe. Do you have a lot of shoes? What do your skirts look like? What accessories do you like to wear? Hey, I know, let's get you set up with one of our guy friends on a blind date! Yeah!
What do you mean no? If you're going to be in here with the girls, you're going to have to act like a girl! And you lose all guyness in here, so if you want to retain your manhood, quick! Get out, or you'll suddenly find yourself needing a bra...
He grabbed Thorin and dragged him to a safe distance. "Quick!! They'r getting closer!!Pick your nose and scratch your bottom! That should keep them away for now!!" he yelled to Thorin while doing the mentioned above.
"OK men! Here we set up camp! Thorin, give me some fart cover while i get things ready!" he ordered. Pulling a few stuff out of his (magical) bag, he assembled the first line of defense. He knew well the weapons that Giirls cant stand.. He moved with great speed for the females were surounding them..Thorin couldnt keep farting for ever..they'd break through they'r cloud of defense soon enough.. And they had to be ready when that happened..
Soon enough, he tackered up a few posters of sport related stuff, and some lewdly dressed women of dubious moral. Not only that, he positioned the plazma tv and the PlayStation 3, hooking them up to a mini compact fully mobile gas fueled electricity generator to power the lot. Adding a ipod with some big sub speakers he hit play on the entire collection of ZZ Top songs!
Ploping down a few bean bags, he ripped the top of a few crispy chips bags, and teared open some beer and Cola cans. With lightning speed he grabbed a contoler and started playing Halo on the PS, while stuffing his mouth with chips and cola.
"Grondy, guys!!! We need reinforcments quickly!! Grab a controler and some chips and lets go! We need to generate enough masculinity to establish a strong enough base camp to launch a invasion on the Giirls territory!! Dont hesitate to burp or fart excesivly loud as well! In fact, please DO that!! I have some baked beans and burgers nearly ready as well!!" he said, staring at the tv and playing with one hand, and fliping the burgers over on the barbecue with the other hand.
If any of you giiirls need help trying to imagine us lot setting up base camp, then if you can DO get the movie i mentioned.. You'll have a good laugh while doing so.. Mel Brooks rules!
Ok..back to the invasion of the giiiirls territory..
Etharion swore as he lost a life on the game, picking his nose and at the same time producing a unidentified sound.. "PPrrrrdddd!!!!" A strange smell surounded the vicinity then..that was, up to this day, blamed on a ferret family that lived nearby..
"Common Grondy!! Where are ya??! Thorin! Get over here!"
Getting back on topic.
What I really hate is when boys use you to get another girl's attention. THAT really hurts...
I've come to realize that for some of them...that's how they show that they like you...and I don't mean romantically...just in a friend way...so it's almost flattering...almost.
And Laurelindhe.. respect!!!
Oh yeah, and OBVIOUSLY, i am not at all, as i humoristiclly portaited myself in the last post's, a typicall male pig. I dont even like football!! The rest..well ok..maybe SOMETIMES i can be a biiit of a pig, but i try to be alone in such times.
Well, I'm not really a tomboy sort like Laurelinde here. But I AM JUST AS CAPABLE OF BEATING A GUY STRAIGHT in a refined gentlemanly manner, of course. It's the old en garde, allez! thing. Still, guys use girls but girls use guys too, and I think we use them a lot more cruelly than they use us. Come on, admit it, girls, we can be quite the little vixens when we have a mind for it.
And Loss, there are a great deal of good qualities about boys. They're straightforward, literal, and analytical. They trust evidence rather than instinct. They like to play macho, and they can be really kind sometimes. Adn when they're kind, you don't feel as if they have some other motives. Not all men are sincere all the time, but most of them I've met are at least chivalrous.
Although sometimes, chivalry can totally tick me off. I mean, why do I always HAVE to be helped onto boat? Why can''t I carry all of my luggage by myself? Why can't a guy hit me if I've offended him? Not that I want to be hit, but it's unfair that we can seek physical retribution on guys when they have to refrain from doing the same to us. And believe me, when it comes to insults, a girl's words can be much more venomous than a guy's. So why do guys always have to act so condescending, with that I-can-hurt-you-but-I'm-not-gonna-because-you're-weaker-than-me attitude?
This is, in fact, the real reason why Dwarven women hardly ever married.

Simple as smashing kittens : because you girls like it that way.
Melian, I think that in fact IS a generalization to say that girls take things more seriously. I have counselled both and in fact here in our province at least it is usually a guy that will try to take his life if ditched by a girl. They can take that sort of heartache very very seriously.
I think personally that guys take a lot of things less seriously only because they are'nt important to them. But the things that are they do in fact take seriously.
As for guys hitting or girls hitting, both are acts of violence, both are criminal in content and against the law, at least in free countries. And both are the acts of abusers. Even if girls scream and hit and punch, they are abusers and need to stop it. It rarely gets less as one gets older if th is type of behaviour is not restrained and changed. And it damages little children who have to witness it. I never see it has harmless. And really it is an act of selfishness to get upset and start h itting someone. And really shows a lack of personal self control. There are many other ways of dealing with pressure.
I had to work with a little baby who had seen a girl hit someone and it actually stopped her from learning to speak for a long time. It is never harmless or of no large consequence, believe me.
I have had generally more friends that were guys than girls but I knew that no matter how nice and friendly, how understanding, it was simply because we were FRIENDS and not anything more. I saw them with their girlfriends and was glad I was only a friend! As for the girlfriends I have they have been my friends forever. Faithful and true thru the good and the bad.
I have a couple of guy friends that are keepers though, t hey are good and kind and absolutely who they seem. Such guys are worth more than gold.
Such guys are worth more than gold.
Yes...I will definetly ditto THAT!!!!!
