    These lists are pretty boring now... the first couple were interesting, now they're just repetative.

    hahahaha 'weakness to cold'. Seems like even the game, IRL, has rpg elements.

    the degree of which a woman induldges in #1 and #7 determines if she's worth knowing whatsoever.

    Partially it is a difference in depth perception and spacial perception, for whatever reason women's brains work it out differently... no idea why, not smart enough.

    FUnny... I spend half my life time wonders about those mysteries about girls. Though i have a gf, it only makes the mystery even more mysterious.

    1. The pleasure they find in gossip

    I'm sorry to say this, but 90% of the men I've known in my life love gossiping. Just because you don't use the word gossip doesn't mean it's something different.

    3. The importance they stress in listening to what people are saying

    Maybe if you guys put a fraction of the effort you'd have a girlfriend (and I'm not talking about those crazy talk 24/7 never listens bitches)

    4. The amount of luggage they have

    If it's a single girl, I understand. If it's a married couple, it's because the man doesn't pack shit and leaves it to the wife, so even if they have the same amount it looks like it's all hers.

    5. Their weakness to cold

    WTF? why are you complaining? go hug her it's your chance for some skinship, moron. (and thick clothes make her look fat, go see n.10)

    6. Their attachment to cute things

    Men love cute things too, just because of the social stigma they can't fawn over shit.

    9. The importance they find in anniversaries

    It's called being committed to relationships and you know, actually caring about a person (pointless holidays don't count).

    10. The importance they see in makeup

    Maybe if the sexist part of society didn't make women feel like shit because they don't look pretty like x stereotype women wouldn't spend so time and money on shit to make themselves look like another person.

    ...We will say something bad about someone and keep going where you can spend an entire lunch break on drivel, usually something you don't even know the facts on.

    Maybe if you guys put a fraction of the effort you'd have a girlfriend (and I'm not talking about those crazy talk 24/7 never listens bitches)

    ...Maybe if you would shut up for 5 seconds for us to filter out the BS you added in so you could keep talking instead of letting us get a word in edge wise. I have listened to plenty of women who would rather make contradicting statements in the same breath as opposed to stopping to think and make a coherent sentence.

    If it's a single girl, I understand. If it's a married couple, it's because the man doesn't pack shit and leaves it to the wife, so even if they have the same amount it looks like it's all hers.

    ...I don't let women dress me, I will let them help pick out clothes because it makes them happy but I won't just let them do it blindly, they would dress me like a gay guy.

    WTF? why are you complaining? go hug her it's your chance for some skinship, moron. (and thick clothes make her look fat, go see n.10)

    ... obviously you aren't reading the comments and just ranting instead most of the people here said that.

    Their attachment to cute things

    ...again read the comments we already say that. You just take it to an extreme.

    It's called being committed to relationships and you know, actually caring about a person (pointless holidays don't count).

    ... dates don't count reasons and actions do. I know many women who can give dates and times of their first dates but couldn't even tell you if the watched a movie or went to dinner. Quit going overboard on unimportant things and remember what you did. Sure your first date is a neat thing to remember but the first date, first movie date, first kiss, first fuck... let it go.

    Maybe if the sexist part of society didn't make women feel like shit because they don't look pretty like x stereotype women wouldn't spend so time and money on shit to make themselves look like another person.

    ...plenty of women go without very successfully it is like a boob job, don't ever think you are doing it for the guys, you are doing it for yourself because you deluded yourself into thinking you have to be perfect not us.

    > 1. The pleasure they find in gossip
    ...You've got me there. Technically I'm a female yet I don't even get the perverse fascination some women and men have with that crap.

    > 2. The amount of time they take shopping
    Not sure there either, actually :-/

    > 3. The importance they stress in listening to what people are saying
    ...If you don't listen, how will you know what people are trying to say? O_o;; I can understand not giving a fuck about what fucktards are saying, but people who are important to you should be listened to, and they in turn should listen to you. It's mere mutual respect, nothing more.

    > 4. The amount of luggage they have
    I am guessing it is because many are too hung up on needing to look good all the time without wearing the same thing every day and looking like a poorfag or something... Personally I just go with basic black clothing and add colorful cute small accessories - saves time and effort. I have better things to do with my time than to coordinate five million outfits all the time.

    > 5. Their weakness to cold
    Science to the rescue! Women in general have significantly thinner skin than men. And also in spite of in general having more body fat than men, "white" fat (which humans have) is a pretty shitty isolator, especially compared to "brown" fat (which a lot of animals have, including bears). Thinner skin + more fat is also why most women have cellulite, while as almost no men do.

    > 6. Their attachment to cute things
    Why not liking cute things? I don't see why this would be bad, unless someone is obsessed with only cute things. I can't speak for Japanese women, but I in no way exclusively like only cutesy stuff. I love awesome art of any kind, anything from cute to badass, from abstract to photo-real and super-real etc... But then again I personally am an artfag.

    > 7. The way they have discussions which go on without end
    Huh... Is a discussion without end really a discussion? wouldn't that better be called a series of discussions, or a conversation ranging over many different topics? That said, I have no idea what exactly is meant by this. Empty smalltalk? That sort of stuff is pretty boring.

    > 8. The number of shoes and bags they have
    I've never understood the point of this either... Just get a good set of basic shoes (exercise shoes, wellingtons, boots for hiking in the forest and the like or winter, casual lighter shoes, formal wear, party shoes) and accessorize. If you have more than seven sets of shoes you should feel concerned. If you have more than ten (especially if you have more than three of any category) you should seek help.

    > 9. The importance they find in anniversaries
    My husband tends to be better at remembering anniversaries than me. I suspect people think of them as birth-dates, only instead of getting more and more depressing to celebrate each year, their increased age just gets more impressive and important for every year... Sort of like wine I suppose. Good thing I have calendar programs to remember this sort of stuff for me.

    > 10. The importance they see in makeup
    The world keeps telling both women and men "YOU SUCK! YOU NEED TO BE MORE IMPRESSIVE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SHUNNED AND SHAMED! BUY OUR PRODUCTS NOW TO STOP THIS!"
    Beauty is treated as one of the most important traits for a woman to possess, and so I think entirely too many women do not feel brave enough to face the world without trying to get closer to what they perceive they should be more like.

    2) Size varies so much in women's clothing sometimes. It's a waste of time and money to go shopping for clothes without trying everything on.

    5) Said by guys who don't want to get close. Or maybe it's the complaining that it's cold all the time or insisting on heat when the guy is sweating bullets... Guilty as charged! But what's gotta be annoying to the guys are the girls that wear next to nothing and then complain of being cold all the time.

    6) Being called cute by boyfriends and having them say stuff like "I love how cute you are" really makes me gravitate to the cute stuff. Not to the point of making him wear pink or giving him the Hello Kitty collection tour. Just wearing more pink and furry things and staying away from my callgirl voice.

    But it's relaxing to be surrounded by cute. I'll tone it down at request, but I'm never giving it up.

    8) I think any guy I'm with will have more bags and shoes than I do.

    hi all!
    I read all of the comments here, until this moment.
    And I'm a girl. And BTW these comments were the most interesting things in this week in my life XD

    So after my opinion and lifestyle...:

    1. I think gossip is when you say something bad or unreal of somebody. I hate gossiping, and to prevent it, I always leave the conversation.

    2. Well, I have money problems and from this reason I don't buy what I wanna buy (yes, when I'm going out shopping I KNOW WHAT I WANT, I never change my mind or anything), until I looked around it's price everywhere. And that takes time.

    3. Somebody up wrote, that most of the people expect a simple replying "yes, uhu, okay". I think it's normal.

    4. I dunno who, but wrote that when you are married the wife has to pack for her husband too. But if you're not married...
    I personally always think about that I pack only that much that I can carry. And 2 from every clothes cuz when you're out of the town you don't know what will happen to you. I remember when I was younger on school trips in the mountains I always fell in the water. So I need an another pair of shoes and pants.
    BUT
    for example my boyfriend takes with him a lot of unnecessary things... I really mean it.

    5. women have to care about it, cuz if she gets a really bad cold it could be that she never gets to gave birth for her child.

    6. omfg. There are so many girls outside in the world. First you have to make a definition what is called cute.

    I call cute a big black spider, but my friend does not. She calls cute her new car.
    :D

    7. there was a really good opinion up. A discussion with an end is no discussion.
    But the chit-chatting and those shitty nothings... I hate them.

    8. Nah, I tell you that I have a ,,leg fetish" I have a lot of shoes and socks :) I like to wear them. But I only have 2 bags :D

    Most of the women have shoes for their every single dress.

    But if it's not, then think logically:
    You need 2 for winter: one for occasions and one for everyday/mountain climbing.
    You need 3 for summer: a pair of sandals in the city, a pair of sandals for walking in mountains and some slippers for the beach.
    You need 2 for autumn/spring: one for the rainy days and one for not.
    And you need an indoor and outdoor pair for sports.
    9 huh? :) You are normal. of and one in the house than 10.

    9. Yeah, well I think all of the people just need something to celebrate, something that's not just in the everyday or a christian holiday.

    10. It was said. Some of the girls need, some of them don't and the mass-media says everybody needs.

    Thank you.

    That is all trival shit you shouldn't even care about. What you should be asking is.

    1. Why do you hang around people you hate?
    2. Why do you bitch about people you like?
    3. Why do you complain when I leave the toilet seat up?
    4. Why are you always checking your weight when your a toothpick?
    5. Why the hell do I have to clean out the tub when its not my fuckin hair in there...wait whos hair is this!?
    6. Why the hell are you horny when we can't have sex?
    7. Why can you read those smut books but I can't look at porn?
    8. Why do you get to use dildos when you feel a bit of solo time is needed but I can't wack off whe its my solo time?
    9. Why do you put water in your Oj?
    10. Why does your mother keep looking at me like that and licking her lips?

    seriously. Have you actually asked a girl about any of these?
    I, for instance, am a girl and don't have more than 4 pairs of shoes.
    I don't care about anniversaries.
    I don't carry a lot of luggage.
    Makeup is not important.
    I don't spend long times shopping.
    This is way too stereotypical.

    MOST people look better in (correctly applied) make-up, and a lot of ugly people can be made more attractive with proper application of make-up.

    gossip.. lets see this under contemporary terms. Of course everyone talks about other peoples business, but i never understood why women have a incredible (almost fetishistic) fascination about talking about the latest little "dirty secret" about some person that they don't even know or truly care about, if anyone could explain to me why this is so pleasurable I'd be thankful.

    Now, i can understand "poisonous talking" 'bout someone they know, i do find it repulsive and i do think is plainly pathetic because they only do it because of their chronic lack of self-esteem and self respect. but just plain "compulsive" gossip but something that no one really cares... i have no idea.

    Ok.
    My girlfriend:
    1. Hates gossip
    2. Shops, but not *too* much - Though it's really hard to find something good.
    3. That's really important..
    4. Never too much. Usually a single bag.
    5. Only sometimes which usually during PMS.
    6. She likes me.. so I don't mind :)
    7. Guys have that too.
    8. 5 pairs of shoes. 3 bags. That's not much, on any scale.
    9. Hardly. We celebrated our 1.5 years by just being together.
    10. She never puts make-up.

    She's a bit too concerned about her cosplays and making them perfect... or about her voice when she covers anime songs...
    And well... she does spend quite a lot of time in danbooru, 4chan and such.

    I wonder how many of these can be used for otakus...

    1. The pleasure they find in gossip abt the otaku universe
    2. The amount of time they take shopping for otaku goods
    3. The importance they stress in listening to what otakus are saying
    4. The amount of otaku merchandise they have purchased at events
    5. Their coldness to non-otakus?
    6. Their attachment to moe things
    7. The way they have otaku related discussions which go on without end
    8. The number of otaku related merchandise they have
    9. The importance they find in anniversaries of character birthdays and other otaku events
    10. The importance they see in cosplay/otaku accessories

    Any comments on this? XD

    otaku is not a gender. yet most of them are men(if not all of them). I can say that otakus are after "otaku stuff" which is only a little part of merchandise, Unlike stuff for females which makes more than half of the world's business. i don't know if i am getting off point here, but oh well wth...
    btw, i never thought about " anniversaries of character birthdays" i think this is very strange even for an otaku lol :)
