@DOS: Well, we could debate the precise meaning of 'insult,' but let's not. It is true that falling in love and being let down is painful, and interactions might be a reminder of pain that any person would reasonably prefer to avoid. The sense of being wronged by them is a little weird, since people aren't obligated to sacrifice themselves to anyone's ego, ergo courtesy and good fellowship don't mean we're owed not being rejected, just polite rejection. Having this happen upwards of three times, at most, indicates either social illiteracy or a desire to suffer...wait. What? What did you say there?
You advocate being friends--a term that denotes mutual affection, trust, and respect--only with "uglier women," which is to say WOMEN PRE-REJECTED BY YOU, and then say that rejection is an insult worth breaking friendships over as a matter of course? What? WHAT?
And what do you talk with your 'ugly friends' about, if you don't accept or dish out emotional confidences and can't find any women bar two who share your unspecified interests, despite having I'm sure looked incredibly hard? (If there are two women there must be about ninety people ever. For /all/ your interests. What do you do, ride pterosaurs?) The weather? Or do 'ugly women' not count as women for fucktally points? Supposing the pretty women you yearn for are even running the /same kind of racket you are,/ and only being 'friends' with people who aren't "good enough for them," why is this okay for you to do and not for them? (I happen to think it's despicable for anyone. FRIENDSHIP DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY.)
With this you have lost the right to talk, let alone complain. Seriously, @ all other posters, what breed of myopia is this? Why are there people who can think this way? Did DOS ever actually exist? Is he not perhaps pure troll, brilliantly taking stupid positions with fiendish dedication to torture people on the other end of the internet?
Anyway, DOS, you are dead to me forever.
