    But all too often honesty inevitably leads to disaster and pain.

    the phrase "damned if you do, damned if you don't" comes to mind lol ;P


    also, I might actually benefit from a creative and entrepreneurial girl who doesn't play videogames for the next chick I get involved with. That, or if she plays, then she had damn well better be a challenge

    Miss, Since after all the problems in the past till I read other website and I decided, "F*ck this!" and I went back to Zone again and trust me, it is getting better again.
    Now, since Zone had a new mod and everything starting to move on alot better.
    If you`re not satisfied?, then go to other website which I`m referring to you.

    [off topic]

    Any mods are not happy with this?, just delete this post, thank you.

    There are a lot of good threads around now too, where people are joining in friendly competition and also being very creative with the game etc. This thread is full of the kind of banter that groups of 'lads' have with each other. It's a bit juvenile in places, but that's the nature of the beast I suppose.

    Something men do a lot in general when in groups is to discuss women in a way that they really wouldn't want women to hear; ways which 'objectify' women and such. I don't know why that is, but I know they don't really mean it, and again it's just a kind of banter. I'm not saying it's going to be to everyone's tastes, but I don't think any harm is meant by it or anything.

    At the end of the day, we all know that it doesn't matter whether a girl or boy plays WipEout or not (or indeed any other game). Despite all the blokey talk, generally people can fall for someone even with a world of difference between them. I'm still of the opinion that a person is better not relying on a partner for enjoyment of certain things. I think this is one such thing. We all need to be have our own little havens where we can escape reality for a while. Sharing things is obviously good, which is why this place and others like it exist. If two people who are romantically involved also enjoy playing games together, then that's just one more thing they can share. But I would think then it would still be healthy to have something else they can both go and do separately that gives them joy, otherwise they'll become too reliant on each other. I was of the opinion about 5 years ago that I was going to be miserable without a girl, and really pinned all my hopes of happiness on finding someone to be with. But now I have certain things which I can enjoy on my own and no longer feel that reliance, which I think is a positive step towards...well I don't know quite know what yet, but it feels good anyway.

    So yeah, by all means share things you enjoy with your partner, but don't create conditions for a prospective partner before you've even met them, such as "they must play WipEout", or "they must be younger, shorter and smarter than me". That would be silly, but I expect a bit of silliness was what siriusbee was going for anyway.

    Silliness achieved.

    and to contribute>
    To restrict myself to associating romantically only with someone who fulfilled a qualification set shared by small numbers would be kinda destructive of my happiness, wouldn't it?

    Only those who play WipEout? That by itself, sheesh.. and the automatic further restriction of only those of the correct gender preference would reduce the suitable people to near zero percent. And only those as smart or smarter than me? Shhhhhhhhheeeeeeit. That would be fatal to romance.

    Yeah seriously- it's not worth getting offended. Take all of this with a grain of salt; you're seeing it from a different perspective since most of the members here are male. I should hope most of us aren't so superficial as to base our preference on whether or not the other person plays Wipeout (or videogames in general), it's just something silly to think about. I'm sure women have some kind of similar conversations amongst their own company ;P

    I know they do. I haven't seen it on forums, but I've heard those sort of discussions in real life amongst friends and friends of friends. The women's discussions were actually raunchier than those of the guys. Bleh.
