I understand women can be nervious of guys but i don't understand how that is possible. You guys seem like you don't have nothing to be worried about since we always have to be the one to do the social work.
...And there it is. "Why are you women anxious
about anything?--you don't have to do any
of the hard work of socializing, people will just come to you!"
I guess we don't really suffer from SA, either...
This is why I usually
refrain from answering the threads of male users I'm unfamiliar with, especially when they discuss gender. (Re: the judgement from guys I mentioned earlier, guess my post was missed. It's standard for unfamiliar guys to ignore me when I mention such things.) I was dumb, thought this thread wouldn't be like that. My bad. Again.
Bolded: That really
isn't true for many unattractive, socially anxious women, you know. Guys don't bother very much to approach us. (IRL, no guys have EVER approached me with sincere interest once in my life. And in almost 20 years online, maybe two or three guys have expressed interest in me...and each one of them
was merely joking at my expense. They ridiculed me for taking them seriously.) And if we
bother approaching them
, they either ignore us, or express pity ("You're not my type, but I'm sure somebody
will like you") or outright disgust. (I've lost count of how many SA/FA guys have ridiculed and trolled me. But I have hundreds of screen captures.)
Feel free to ignore or disbelieve me, I'm used to that by now.
If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

Det. Kristeva: "If it were legal you'd marry me, right?"
Det. Devetko: "Definitely."
(It's legal now!! But Kristeva's already married. ;_; )
