    Most of the time I don't attract men, but when I do, I seem to attract younger and immature guys (this sounds like a meme for "The Most Interesting Man in the World"). I had one guy hit on me recently, telling me that I was cute and that he wanted me to be his girlfriend. Well, since we only met, somehow I managed to get by without saying anything. A week later, I discover that he's in a relationship with another girl on Facebook. My first thought was "WTF?" "Didn't you just say you wanted me to be your girlfriend? What the heck is your major malfunction?" I'm glad I didn't say that I wanted to be his girlfriend--since I got ditched three days after V-Day by another guy this year.

    So I took to Facebook--because I was so confused and kind of mad, I admit even though I hardly knew him (he was cute, alright)--and defined the word 'douchebaggery' just to be sarcastic (I managed to customize my settings so everybody but him--despite how seemingly dense he was). This is my definition that I posted:

    "Douchebaggery: (adv) an act of stupidity. EX: A guy/girl tells you that you're hot and wants you to be their girlfriend/boyfriend. They tell you that they love you and want to kiss you. A week later, on your birthday, you find out that they got into a relationship with somebody else and they still tell you they love you and miss you, forgetting that they posted a picture of their new GF/BF on their timeline and not making it private."

    I'm glad I played everything by ear, but, come on...seriously? How immature.

      I don't know, but I'm more than tempted to say that he's just immature since he's now four years younger than I am. As I said, I'm glad I decided to listen to my gut and pass him up (even though, I will admit, that we hardly know each other). Such as life.

      writinglover,
      You too good to let yourself be wasted on a good half of the male population. Steer clear and when the right one comes around... he won't be saying "You're Hot... be my girlfriend" ... let him win you! Make the turd work for it, if he's worthy, he will!

              Age has nothing to do with maturity.

                I don't know where you got the idea that I was trying to cause more drama, janesix, and I admit that there are times that I don't act my own age, but, seriously, I was NOT trying to cause any drama. I was genuinely confused by his behavior, thus, the forum topic. I appreciate where you're going with this, don't get me wrong, but I had not intended to cause this so-called drama.

                janesix,
                I have to apologize for being a very big part of taking this forum in an immature direction, myself. Just attempting to have a little light-hearted fun and step away from the dark and sadder moments of life, that's all. I have to speak on behalf of writinglover and in her defense, she's a wonderful, person and very well rounded. Recently broken hearted and perhaps a little more vulnerable right now. It is unfair and uncalled for when boys/guys randomly approach girls/women and toy with their emotions when uninvited and intentions are not sincere.

    That sounds about right. Way too many guys (including some of my friends, and some former friends thanks to the same) do that with women. Perhaps it has to do with feeling powerful at being able to be with any woman they want at any time. I don't know, I'm weird for a guy, so don't take my advice/insight into the male mind as gospel. tongue

    That situation reminds me of John Tucker Must Die though. XD

      I won't take it as gospel, Winterfate, but I still think you have some good insight here. From the first time I saw that picture on Facebook, I suspected that he thought he could take me for a fool--otherwise he wouldn't have left that picture up for the world to see. I don't think he was being malicious, though, just immature. Oh, well. smile

          Hey, Cat! You're quite right about developing good sensors. I mean, I feel like I have good sensors because I knew what he was doing. I just wanted my topic to be like, why are guys immature (or something like that), but that didn't go so well as we all know and it didn't help that I got my chops busted for appearing to be a whiny brat, which I'm not. That aside, this was just a forum thread that went wrong!
