this article smells like bullshit to me.

For one Vancouver in itself is a shit hole where all the nice looking ladies are all looking to score big. When a guy acts courteous and nice and tries to spend time to listen to her he gets friendzoned because hes a really nice guy. Lets put it this way dating isnt what it used to be years ago. You gotta admit dating is pretty retarded where both the male AND female play this hard to get game. what happened to being straight up.

Edit:

Also forgot to add I dont think its all the guys fault as well for not being in for the occasion. How about the days when you take a woman out and she constantly is on her phone texting?

Speaking for myself, I am usually one of the best-dressed guys at the bar (I always wear well-cut blazers after all) and if that's what women want, well I barely get a glance. Women in this city bitch and complain about men-children in this city, yet when a clearly put-together, articulate guy is next to them in the flesh, they stare at their phones and don't even give as much as a brief glance or flash of their pearly whites.

I think its just the west coast style.

I was used to Ottawa/Toronto where downtown is dominated by financial or government jobs requiring buttoned shirt and pants, no tees and jeans. My first impression of Vancouver was everyone dressed down, I rarely saw anyone dressed up minus the women shopping on Robson. Most women wore lululemon pants (not that I'm complaining! check the Yoga pants thread in the NWS forum!) and men mostly wore jeans and tees.

Seattle and most of California seems the same dressed down lifestyle, in contract to the formal NY, Chicago, Washington style.

Yup Toronto is a lot more dressy. I'm going out tonight for some casual beers at a pub downtown and I would look completely out of place if I showed up in jeans, a hoody and a baseball hat. Have to wear a nice pair of jeans or some slacks, a sweater or button up, nice jacket... etc.

When I go back to Vancouver I can wear whatever I want though and just blend in. I saw soooo many guys wearing sweatpants during Christmas it was ridiculous.

But women have way too high expectations for what they bring to the table as other posters have already said. Maybe they are accomplished and make lots of money but most are looking for tall/dark/handsome or Prince Charming to come sweep them off their feet.

this article is so stupid. From what I see, they sound like stuck up bitches and like someone mentioned before, they can go fuk themselves. The "guys" from their highschool don't generalize to all of Vancouver. Someone should tell these snobby bitches that not everyone dresses up just to please them, we got our own lives with things happening that are much more important than trying to impress you.

About how some people dress, its up to them on how they dress. I dress according to how I feel. If i feel good, i dress in what makes me feel good and hit the club. If i don't feel good, i don't go to the club, nice and simple. Those girls are definitely gold diggers, what kind of girl picks a man based on how he dresses on a particular night... what ever happened to personaliity?

Are these women even looking in the right places? Granted, Vancouver is no NY, HK, etc, etc and in fact, quite poseur-ish but to say that this issue is one sided is asinine. Not being able to find the right guy? Even more asinine.

Their standards are either too high for the pool of available men, they're playing hard to get, they have some intrinsic attitude flaw which men see..or they're ugly.

Also, I find that these type of women (liberated, feminist, what have you) wanting chivalry to be highly contradictory.

I wanted to add, and its been a few years since I've been single, but after my genitalia incising experience with that girl, who complained about everything I did, I really examined my game.

No word of a lie, she used to bitch about the fact that I didn't open car and other doors, treat her like a princess and, in her quote, "put me on a pedestal. Like I'm here - and you are like,











- here." She actually drew that out for me with her hands.

So after I got out of that mess, as I said, I really examined my game. I started opening car doors. You know what you are opening gentlemen? Legs. Open the car door, and you open her mind to opening way more for you.

Rush out and grab the door for the restaurant, and you are rushing out and grabbing poon. Just that easy.

PLUS, and this is fucking brilliant...women slam your doors! Take that away from them. Do you know how many people have slammed my door into the sidewalk? No more baby. Sit yo ass there, because obviously you can't handle the responsibility.

This article just tells me these chicks think they're somehow owed something by men. The sense of entitlement is strong in these ones.

And yeah, feminism killed chivalry. Men got tired of hearing "I'm a woman and I can do that too!" and just stopped doing all the nice things women originally wanted us to do. Basically... "Oh yeah, we'll show us what you can do then."

Personally I still hold doors and I'd probably offer the woman carrying a lot of stuff my seat but if we're truly equal, how many women would offer me their seat if I was carrying a lot of shit?

In conclusion, women will ALWAYS complain no matter what we do.

oh man i have so much to say about this shit but we're all men here, we know what's going on.

i'll wait for the first woman to complain and unleash my load on her.

YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO DO MY JOB, AND YOU WANT ME TO HOLD THE DOOR OPEN FOR YOU?

AND you still want your right to be priority on the life boat?

lol that's all i need to say.

the truth of the matter is

no matter how fat, unattractive, loud, annoying, boring and stupid a woman is there's always a chump who will white knight that shit and probably fuck her. look at snooki

men don't get the same breaks

It intrigues me at how many times i've seen, heard and encountered unattractive (physical or personality, or both) women talk like they are god's gift to men. I always wonder where these delusions of grandeur come from. Was it because they were raised where their parents constantly praised them on how wonderful and attractive they are, or is it because they are surrounded by fake friends who constantly spout fake compliments to each other, actually believing the bullshit that comes out of their whoremongering mouths. Who knows.

at first i was like, what's this retarded bitch gotta say.


then i listened, and she actually makes sense.

women forget feminism has two sides. equal opportunity, but it also is about killing chivalry and all those things men are supposed to "do" for women. im not making this up. most women just blatantly choose to ignore that side of the argument, when in fact that is one of the core topics and issues of feminists.

and of course, that will never happen. because we are unequal physically, psychologically, and it's ingrained in our brains through evolution.

the day we're equal, is the day there are no genders. that's probably a few thousand years off. if not more.
