Thank you. It actually brings me a lot of joy to know people enjoy my threads and posts. I'll let you keep wondering about the troll bit.
I am an introvert and am a pretty unusual (ie weird) guy realative to most people, so it's not that I think all girls are stupid, it's that there aren't very many people (male or female) who are similar to me either in lifestyle or mindset. I have found I get along very well with grad students and those with higher degrees, but given only 5% of the population is both female and possesses a higher degree, my numbers are limited. I have met quite a few girls I liked who liked me back, but so far they have either been significantly older, already married or engaged, or from a country on the other side of the planet they intend to returning to. So I've mostly dated girls who aren't as good of a match whi I end up not liking, usually in part to their extreme clingness and lack of a life outside of wanting to hang on to me 24hrs/day. As someone who is independent even by introvert standards, this is a problem for me.
I'm very introspective. You'll just have to take my word for that since explaining that is outside the scope of this thread.
It's not that they are all shallow. It's that they tend to be more present-oriented and hedonistic than me. They also tend to talk too much. Most (not all) will talk for literally 2+ hours straight about themselves without me saying much of anything and will then interrupt me and talk over me if I try to share anything about my life. They would rather talk about themselves for 60 minutes and hear nothing about me than to only talk for 57 minutes and hear about anything going on in my life for the remaining 3. I am not exaggerating. The times I go out with people who aren't this way I frequently get told I'm a great conversationalist and interesting to talk to, so its not that what I have to say is boring; these girls simply don't care about anything but themselves. Again, I emphasize not every girl is like this, and the older the girl is, the less likely she is to be this way.
Thanks for the reply.
