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?
i fucking hate it when my gf goes on her phone all of the time when we go out because her friend txts her and they end up having a convo like wtf ive been going with you for almost 5 years and you still do this shit

This comment on that article rings true for men or women:

Yesterday, while walking up Commercial Drive, I tried an experiment. I tried smiling at every guy I saw, whether or not he was my "type" (and I wish it was otherwise, but I find very, very few guys are my "type"). Only one returned a smile, clearly surprised. The other five or so didn't even make eye contact or look at me long enough to even see that I was looking in their direction, let alone notice a smile.
I had a female friend that was having a hard time meeting people, I told her she just has to smile and put it to the test. We went for a run on the canal in Ottawa and smiled at everyone we passed. Almost all smiled back. What's funny is that we met during a running race in Ottawa, by exchanging smiles, so I knew it would work.

I've tried this while running the sea wall, false creek, and jericho/spanish banks - nothing, nada, zip, zero, ziltch. I've even tried a little wave, or head nod - little success.

People in this city are cliquey, like the article says. If you grew up here you have your little group of friends and cringe at anyone new infiltrating that circle. Of the people I've befriended here, most are from Alberta or Quebec.

When I'm out for runs, I always make eye contact with people who pass me by. You know who usually gives waves or nods back? Fellow male runners. In fact, I ran around Beaver Lake an hour ago and a guy with his dog gave me an acknowledging nod.

Women, however, seldom give me waves or nods unless I know them. I certainly dress the part too when I'm out on my runs in form fitting running gear.

I don't know. I've had pretty good success socializing with females before I got married.

You just gotta know which ones are approachable and which ones aren't. Though I'll agree that Vancouver can be pretty stuck up (both men and women), I'd say that's still only 20% - 30% of the population (that is just a rough rough rough guesstimation). The reason why I give credit that majority of Vancouverites are still friendly and approachable (even women as per topic), is because I doubt I owe my previous success to being THAT good.


The thing is, I would've avoided those women like the plague; and the hotspots (clubs, cafes, shops etc) that cater to them. Knowing how to read your environment, and developing your social calibration is just part of growing up. Obviously those girls in that article still hasn't learned either of them; so despite being in their mid-20's, I'd actually question the fact they consider themselves as "grown ups."


In addition, I'd hate to push the stereotype of us men being pigs, but women of that nature... are actually just good for one thing; and I don't feel bad about it.

This is all soooo true. Vancouver women are the most stuck up snobby bitches I've ever met. I've lived in Winnipeg, Calgary, Toronto, Victoria, and Vancouver. I work for an airline and travel everywhere, and Vancouver women are by far THE WORST! To top it all off, I dress very well, I'm friendly and approachable. I approached a woman in Vancouver last week, and the first words out of her mouth "are you gay?" I said "excuse me?" She replied you're dressed too well to be straight. WHAT THE *UCK!?!? They want us to dress well, and when we do, you're accused of being gay.

It seems to me that the author has never smoked "dope" and made love in the west coast. That's a true beauty to have here in Vancouver.

^this, if she wont allow to wear what you want when you go out then something is wrong

imo looks are secondary when it comes to personality they are close though

Wear whatever you like,long as it's tasteful and compliments your shape.

The gay comment was from one dumb stuck up cunt in this city,not every girl in Vancouver is like her.You would be suprised how many decent girls there are in this city,you just got to know where to look.

Vancouver women...most of them are self-absorbed imo. Most of the ones I met constantly bitch about something, or won't even talk to you in the first place because "you're not my choi" (vegetable, aka. guy)

This article is bullshit, these 3 ladies seem to have expectations so high that they won't even find guys in Toronto. Why? I don't know how they look, I don't know their personality, but I do know one thing - they don't have class. They don't have that aura of elegance. They look like gold diggers to me. Yeah sure, lets say they look amazingly hot, I still wouldn't date/talk to her. Who the fuck would want to bring a girl like that out to family, business events?

Head down to DC/NYC/Boston...Heck, even Seattle. I've lived in NYC, Boston and Seattle a long time ago...the women there are so sultry with class (the one with manners, outgoing, hygienic, stylish...) its not even funny. The constant flirting and mysterious eye contact just makes you want to learn her more.\

Don't get me wrong though, there is a small population of girls in Vancouver who act completely different than the major population. Like what spyker said, you just got to know where to look.

I've found girls extremely friendly in this city. Of course there are some stuck up cunts in the mix, (like the fucking idiots in this story) but where aren't there? I have found when I smile or start a convo at the bar, beach, or wherever it is almost always reciprocated and taken with open arms. Although, I may have different tastes than the people who are having a tough time. I like girls that are a little more dressed down than some. I'm not chasing after chicks in stilettos and sausage casing dresses in yaletown. More hipster chicks in gas town for me. Although, I have found most from every genre to be quite friendly.
