Girls : Guys = bad ratio (19)


1 Name: Secret Admirer : 2008-05-01 03:44 ID:ycwU9B/v

Why are there so few women who are a part of internet subcultures when compared to men? Also, how does one find them in real life?

All these desperate men chasing such a limited supply makes me sad. Particularly as I am one.

Generally, girls are far less likely to be a member of internet subculture; it's just the way that society works. Girls have their own communities on the internet - various fandoms, for example - as opposed to hanging out on BBS and various *chans.

I'm at uni.

Hell, I go to bookstores, libraries, conventions, bars, clubs and comic stores all the time, but never identify any girls from the internet. Is there some mark on their body I should look out for, or do I need second sight to identify them?

Is it really a girl's fantasy to meet a guy at some place like a bookstore if she's into books?

A girl I'm possibly seeing I met at Border's in the manga aisle, and that's totally awesome if it's not just my dream to meet my partner there.

I'm a girl, i'm into books, but have no fantasies about meeting guys in bookstores. Or any other place that reflects my interests. I really don't give a fuck where I meet him. The only relevance to my interests is that I'd like him to share some of them.

It'd be a scenario straight out of a shoujo manga if I could meet my special someone at a bookstore in the manga aisle. The only problem is that most girls go to bookstores to find books, not dates. It's a great place to pick up a good chick, but tread those waters with care, and go easy on the flirting. Maybe wait until the girl picks up something and starts reading it, and if you've read that something before, then start your conversation based on that as an ice-breaker.

Sounds tenuous, also doesn't imply she's into the internet. Finding a girl isn't hard - finding a girl from the internet is damned near impossible, and is exactly what I want. Anyone have any tips for getting Anonidate to work?

okay, haha, I was speaking only for myself and my friends. Where would you want to meet a guy? Maybe you just don't have a specific location (it's cool, I never had one either) but it would help to know where people could get together that isn't club/bar scene!

*Goon, not Good, haha

I tried the protests for that purpose. Unfortunately my girlfriend also came.

Fail.

>I myself have always wanted to meet a guy with a troll-ish sense of humour (i.e. is familiar with SA but not totally into being a Good, is familiar with /b/ but not totally a btard) since I'm internet-savvy and that way myself.

That's all of us I think.

well, it requires one to have a sense of humour with the intelligence not to give in to the "hivemind" mentality (wake up, sheeple!). To me, a sense of humour is very important. It can make people I'm not normally attracted to become attractive - and this is true for many other girls I know, as well.

Possible. Most people that end up on 4-ch seem to mostly avoid the herdlike-behaviour. That's why we manage to have interesting discussions in almost all boards; I like how DQN manages to stay (almost always) in DQN. Even if lately the cancer looks like it tries to make incursions in the 4-ch wonderland.

I don't really meet anyone from the *chans. Then again, I don't really ask.

Sometimes I can identify someone by their words and recognition of *chan terms. But er, if a guy was caught using them, it would probably be awkward.

That's the first compelling reason I've ever heard to get an internet humour shirt.

It is.

Shirts about obscure stuff (be it a band, a graphism, a particular 'joke' or reference) have the advantage to allow you to instantanly bond to people who recognize that particular reference. And the more obscure, the more likely people will tell you something in reference to it so you see they 'got' it. Nice way to make new acquaintances.

I did something nice! Woo!

And, plus, you don't have to sit there for ten minutes trying to think of small talk. The shirt already did it for you.

I have been wearing H.P. Lovecraft related t-shirts for a long time now and the only person who has ever understood them was already a friend of mine at the time.

The moral of the story is that people these days are uncultured swines.
