It's not about the money. It's about time. If you cannot "sacrifice" some time to see a movie she seems to enjoy, then you will look pretty bad to her. It's a pretty big red flag to me if a girl doesn't want to spend a little time on me. Especially since I will use lots of time on her without expecting anything in return.

I think that was a test and one that you seem to fail big time. Sure, you don't want a girl that is entitled to everything, but you were the one telling her about the movie tickets and offering her to see a movie with you. That might not be the best way to go about a potential relationship.
For once, I agree with rdos. 8-O

She tested you, and you failed the test. Whether for better or for worse remains to be seen.

But you should still consider the idea that having your way all of the time means that you will miss out on some really fun times with some really fun women.

No, I saw those posts. You may not have liked the advice, but you did solicit it, yes? Do what you want to do, but don't chastise members of this community for having a different opinion. You asked for it! The moderators should be ashamed of themselves for deleting the comments.
Thanks, VM!

It's one thing to antagonize others online by deliberately posting inflammatory, irrelevant, or offensive comments or other disruptive content. It is quite another to challenge other people's beliefs and expose their self-righteousness with factual statements and honest opinions.


I've looked through your post history, and I've yet to find a single one where you weren't snarking off to the person you were pretending to help. Comments like "Oh, you sound so... republican," aren't something a helpful person says. It's what a troll says when he just wants to escalate the drama for his own amusement.

Well then, have you reported me to the moderators? Go ahead, I'll wait...

(By the way, cross-posting is against the rules.)

I've reported you dozens of times, hence why I'm so shocked you haven't been banned yet. I know I'm not the only one doing it, and you don't even bother hiding the fact that you're just here to make fun of people. But other users, like Mohammedisapedo got banned in one day. One of them must find you funny or something. Moderator favoritism can suck the life right out of a good forum.

But seriously, I don't understand any of this. I offered to split two movie tickets, my movie tickets, to take her to see a movie. Her immediate response was "That's not good enough, I want to choose the movie too, and I don't care if it's one you don't want to see." She's telling me that being given a gift isn't enough for her, I have to relinquish control over the situation entirely in order to make her happy. To me, that's the definition of spoiled entitlement. But everyone here is acting like I'm the entitled one. Like, how dare I not immediately cave to her demands on the first date, when I barely even know her, and give her the impression that I can be bullied into doing whatever she wants with a little pressure? Am I the only one who feels like that's the wrong way to go about starting a relationship?



She is rude and entitled.

I'm flattered! Most people seem to ignore what I post.

It is not the frequency of the reports that's important, but that the reports must cite come infraction of the rules -- you can't just report someone for something that you disagree with.

I know it, too. If the reports do not cite an actual rules infraction, then they are likely to be ignored.

This is a lie. Reported.

It is against the rules to discuss people who have been banned from this website.

I think they tolerate me because I occasionally try to add something to this community -- something other than spam.

True ... but attacking others for disagreeing sucks even more.

That's rich, coming from you. You're like the bully who cries to the teacher as soon as someone has the guts to hit him back. There's a real simple solution, too: go troll someone else's threads. I'm not going to put up with you anymore, so if you're not a big enough man to take what you give, then get the hell lost.

I only report rules infractions, not differences of opinions.

If you don't want me to reply to your posts, just say so. I will only expect you to not reply to my posts, as well.

But if you want to "banish" me from any thread that you've posted in, that just isn't going to happen.

At this point, this thread should probably be locked.

The issue is resolved and the content is now just arguing over nothing.

Well, let's hope the mods are as lenient towards my "infractions" (translation: calling you out on your crap) as they are for you and the bottomless fountain of sarcasm you think people are stupid enough to think is "help."

You and her are not compatible IMO. You haven’t even met and already she says, "If we don’t do this, I want nothing to do with you". I wouldn’t consider even being friends with someone, let alone consider them for a relationship, if they had that attitude towards me before even meeting me in person.
