I didn’t see you come and meet me the last two times we made plans. WTF is up with you single ladies these days? You don’t want to casually date, but when it comes time to date you then act all casual. Does anybody know how to make a decision anymore?

Berry forage storage

Look out! Andreae Prozesky is already preparing for the winter. It seems I got a bit carried away last week with my strawberry dacquoise adventures. There were so many more things about berry season that I had meant to say, so let’s call this fortnight’s discussion “berries: part two”, because, really, berry-picking is one of […]

    I wouldn’t take it personally, but I also wouldn’t be trying to make plans with her again. On to the next one!

    if this were a girl complaining about single guys the “don’t-tar-us-all-with-the-same-brush’ manmafia on this site would be all over it. Yet they don’t seem to care when women are generalized.

    Make plans again, then don’t show up! That will teacher her!!!!

    sociopathy is an epidemic. keep trying for someone uninfected.

    Ahh, yeah…Because this general statement is usually more directed or assumed from guys not girls

    What? did you do a survey?

    sociopathy? so they were too busy killing small animals for pleasure to come to the dinner date?

  8. Emma · August 14, 2008

    Right? This is way more “she’s just not that into you” than sociopathic. I’ve known people who could probably be diagnosed as such, and this does not come close to fitting the description.

    If she’s unable to empathize with and care about the other person enough to try to make it to a simple date, when the OP has time and emotion invested into it, that is a sign of a sociopath.

    “she’s just not that into you” is not a valid excuse for rude and inconsiderate behavior. You’re not entitled to be shitty to other people just because you don’t find them interesting. If you’ve decided this sort of thing is socially acceptable, you’re helping to create a fucked up society. Thanks a lot.

    Killing small animals for fun, I would call psychopathy.

    No, it’s not sociopathy – just plain lack of consideration. I’ll never understand why some people think it’s better to act this way than to just say ‘I’m not interested’.

  12. Steve · August 14, 2008

    I don’t think it needs to be explained to anyone that guys are usually viewed less likely or afraid to commit than women.

    I’m a girl that dates girls, and I have this exact same problem. A lot (not all) of the girls I meet are terrible at sticking to plans of any kind. If you’re not interested, just say it. If you are, stop being a giant flake.

  14. alf · August 14, 2008

    Responding to criticism of generalization with more generalization. Awesome.

    I’m a girl that dates guys and I have this problem too. Gender does not determine flakiness.
