So how's this for weird

dating for 9 months, very much in love, open relationship, and alleged 'commitment phobia' I don't know about you, but when I see a couple who's been together for 9 months, the concept of commitment phobia seems to have been conquered in my opinion.

It's complicated, but I'm taken, I don't want another relationship or anything.

What's interesting is the taken female:single female ratio. I know in my WoW guild, that ratio is really high - we have maybe one single female! But here, it's about 1, maybe a little more. Hmmm.
At some point, I will remember to sig quotes I find amusing or something.

Single, but going to meet a rather pretty boy for coffee on Thursday.

To be honest, being single has never worried me too much. I've got friends, and family. Partners? Meh. They're a bonus, but I'm fine without. If anything, it makes me more stressed to have one.

Oh come on... chicks dig guys chasing after them. If you are not interested in him, then why not tell him so in no uncertain terms? Or just admit that it feels good to have such power!

I suck at taking hints...... a swift kick in the nuts to indicate my attention was unwanted could have saved me a lot of heartache in my life

I'm sorry, what? That is a *horrible* generalization. Maybe the ladies in *your* life enjoy having guys chasing after them, but I, in fact, do not. Not when it is one of my best guy friends and I'm not supposed to know he likes me. Not when a lot of friendships hang on me letting him down easily. Not when... umm... I'm uh, not going to go into this in detail in public. It is, suffice it to say, a bad situation to be in. If you are curious to know more, you may PM me, but I do not want to spew out the details of my life here. That is not what this is for.

To be honest, I'm a bit offended that you think I enjoy having "such power" and "dig guys chasing after [me]".

...Apparently I'm a whore. :roll:

EDIT: I'm sorry that you feel the women in your life are like that, but rest assured, not all of us are.

No, it's alright. I was a fair bit bitchy about that, but it is *quite* a touchy subject and I am ready to explode with annoyed-ness. :(

It is not your fault. I'm sorry for taking it out on you.

(Also, I know that's not what you were implying, but that is what my "friends" have been implying since I won't do anything about the situation... because they know so much about what is going on in my life... :/)

Your comment made me giggle as a friend and I were discussing this the other day. I'm single (as mentioned above) and yet do have a couple of "potentials" however I don't actually want to date them, they're not my kind of guy at all and yet I'm still civil to them and maybe (though not really deliberately) lead them on. Why? Because I hate being nasty to people, so I just chat to them quite friendly and they take it to mean more but also I like to still be reminded that I am attractive (call it teenage lack of confidence if you like). So it's not so much power but the compliment...

of course he take a hint. He's a guy. We don't understand woman. Just plainly say "Hi, I don't like you. (optional, you're a nice friend, but you'll never ever be my boyfriend.)"
He won't feel hurt, he'll be happy so he can go for another girl.


Ok, that's not completely true, he won't be happy. but he'll be happier in the end.

Ooh, I do this. It's not very nice, but it's fun (and flattering), and I do make a point of bringing up the boyfriend at some point.

When I have a boyfriend, I sort of cease to look at any other guys. I am just naturally very monogamous. If I get hit on, I immediately let them know I'm not available...but I still think it's kind of nice when I get winked at once in a while (whether or not I have a boyfriend) or someone asks for my number. Ego boosts are nice. Assuming they aren't creepy.

Speak for yourself, guy. I don't claim to completely understand anyone, but hints like never reciprocating advances or flirty comments or whatever are really not all that hard to decrypt, if you're the sort of person who has enough social skill to actually pay attention to someone else's actions.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

Yea, I hated having to do that to this one guy. He'd been so friendly and flirty and then I just had to say "Look I'm really sorry but I have a boyfriend" and he just sort of went "oh" and wandered off, which I felt was a shame because he seemed a really nice guy.

That reminded me, on the same night I saw a guy with a t-shirt that said "Sorry ladies, I'm gay". Maybe I should create a t-shirt similar for the next time I have a boyfriend...

Do you think this was just because he no longer wanted to talk to you if you were unavailable, or perhaps because he took your comment to mean you weren't really comfortable with the flirtation? Because I'm sometimes jokingly flirty with female friends who have boyfriends, even when the boyfriend is actually there in the room, just because it's fun to banter like that. But if it weren't someone I knew very well (and if we pretend for a second that I've ever been flirty with someone I didn't know very well), her saying she had a boyfriend would probably be taken as a nicer way of saying she wanted me to stop. (Rather than merely clarifying so I didn't get the wrong impression of the possible consequences.)

Especially since too many people would be somewhat driven off by my saying something lengthier, like, "Just so you know, I have a girlfriend. Which isn't to say I mind harmless flirtation, just that I don't want either of us to have false expectations of where this might go."

This was an obvious being chatted up situation (at a bar in fact) so I guess he just wasn't looking to make friends. Which always slightly annoys me, if I'm not available then I'm suddenly not worth getting to know?

then you have those guys that you make it CLEAR you have a boyfriend but are interested in friends and they still pursue you. *facedesk* in situations like this i hold out til they give up and accept just friendship, or give up and go away. i kind of hate it when the latter happens, but honestly it makes my life easier... *mumble* =(

Ahh, that might be the problem...
I pay atention, I just rarely understood people. Well, I understand people, it's the individuals that are hard. I only notice subtle signals when i'm really, really trying hard. And just noticing them is no assurance of understanding.

My girlfriend has luckily gotten used it and simply has "No honey" instead of giving the usual array of subtle female hint

Agreed. Sadly enough, that's the take a lot of guys (in my neck of the woods, at least) have on it. Friends can't be girls and girls can't be just friends. Which is sad, because I don't like girls mostly. Girls are catty and mean and ... I just don't like them. So I have to seek out boys who are chill enough to be just friends without wanting it to be more and that's a lot of work. Moral of the Story: Guys, do not be assholes because a girl is involved with someone. That's not nice.

To play devil's advocate for a moment...if this is at a bar, I wouldn't expect much else, and not just because I'm cynical about men. Having a meaningful conversation in many bars is pretty much outright impossible, so people who are looking to make friends go elsewhere. (I'm not sure where that is just yet, but I hear the internet is where the young kids hang out these days.)
