in my experience calling a girl annoying is guy for "im gonna try and fuck that chick". its an instant break up in my book.

what's the psych behind this? is it like the guy's putting the blame on the "annoying" chick because he can't deal with his being attracted to her?* or are annoying chicks just really hot?

*sorta like calling a woman a slut because she slept with you you slept with her?

get bent, Wednesday, 5 March 2008 21:38 (thirteen years ago) link

ive done this before and i think its partially a defense mechanism when you think you wanna get with a girl but shes, you know, annoying

and what, Wednesday, 5 March 2008 21:41 (thirteen years ago) link

most times ive hated on some random chick to a girl i was dating what i really was thinking was man id hit that

and what, Wednesday, 5 March 2008 21:42 (thirteen years ago) link

i think it's like, before the fact, "annoying" is an epithet of self-protection from the knowledge that he wants to sleep with her? but maybe a guy should answer this question. or sunny, because she's smart.

sometimes annoyingness is attractive when you realize what the one thing is that would shut her up

i think it's a way to get away with looking at the girl and acknowledging her in front of your gf, but doing it in a manner that would suggest "man i would never go for her". like when you say, "man look at her hat, how lame" you're thinking "but damn, the rest of her!!~"

or are annoying chicks just really hot?

this is pretty much true (well, hot chicks are annoying anyway), there is this thing where hot chicks think they are endlessly fascinating bcz nobody ever tells them to stfu~

also a steadfast rule abt ppl is that the more worked up abt something they are, the more they are prob overcompensating for something. the more a dude talks shit about a broad, the more he wants to bang her until her freckles fall off. she's probably still hell of annoying tho~

[13:14] andrew: lol i see we have had similar sexual histories~
[20:32] andrew: hatred stems from jealous thoughts
[20:33] me: girls just want an angel such as alba to be some degraded ass dog like tara reid or somethin
[20:33] andrew: jessica alba isn't even the hottest chick to me so it's even more lol that chixx hate her so bad

i dunno, there's the other side which is exemplified by my otherwise cool friend. it was at a point where he had to "run game" on any semi-attractive girl around. it usually involved "showing them something" by "touching their hands".

haha my friend actually played that "says one thing, means another" shit w/r/t "the game" because he commented on how this one guy we both knew was always trying to pick up girls and how lame it was, then suddenly he's trying to seduce girls by showing them how he uses his hands in martial arts and how he's learned some massage techniques and "here let me show you this one thing" (takes girl's hand)

i would fucking shit my pants if any of the people i was yelling at today would, just for once, admit they were wrong on anything at all, rather than dodging everything by asking questions that don't have answers. and i will note that this kind of behavior is very common among people with rightwing brainworms. the first step toward brainworms is not being able to tell yourself that you're wrong. the second step is to find someone else who is the same way, and to make a pact to never be wrong, together. so perhaps it's not that strange that conflate the two - i am absolutely exhausted with "debating" with people who will never, ever, ever EVER admit they're wrong about anything, and will bend time and space itself in order to avoid doing so. it's one of the the things that makes me really mad these days.

i just gotta say, and i'm not explicitly attacking this post, just mentioning it because it's related - i really hate the "wrong side of history" canard. it's so facile and like the ultimate neolib / "end of history" type of thing to say. the earth is literally dying, there isn't going to be any history, let alone some imaginary "masterpiece theatre" room where all the important people pull leather-bound volumes from shelves to righteously remember how they were on the right side of history. also, "history" as it's understood in these uses hasn't done anything to solve racism, racists aren't shamed, all it does is make liberals feel good about themselves.
