Lets do a touch of editing shall we...

Um.. has anyone read mansfeild park? Austen points out something like "there is nothing a man loves more than a pretty face who knows nothing, yet is curious and wants to learn from what he has to say." This made me laugh, but I find it sadly kind of true.

There we go... much better :)

Lol, no... I wasn't editing the quote becasue it was wrong... (I have no idea what the quote is) I was editing because what it says is crap... but if you take out the middle it's 100% accurate :)

sorry if you thought I was correcting you lol ^_^

Do you really think that's sexist?? Is it any more sexist than saying "there is nothing a woman loves more than a guy with a masculine body who is curious and wants to listen to what she has to say."

And you can't disagree with that quote either really can you lol =P

yeah but it's the image of the girl trying to please the guy by listening, doesn't he wan to hear from her? On her ideas? And masculine guys are not all attractive.

(btw, Not all that worked up about it, just like debating ;))

Yeah I remember from another topic you love debating xD

I used the word masculine because I thought it would be a cover all that everyone would find attractive, but if you dont find masculine attractive, can you describe what you do? :)

And in the first quote (after the change) "there is nothing a man loves more than a pretty face who is curious and wants to learn from what he has to say." I took this as saying a man wants a woman who is willing to try new things and learn and progress...

it doesn't have to hinder the guy from listening to her and her ideas

(right this should make more sense now lol)

lol, I like nerdy guys, computer geeks, english nerds, science addicts. And I am constantly made fun of for it.

And yes, your quote applies to most of my friends, just as the jane austen quote seems to apply to a lot of guys. But not all. So I guess the point is, stop being a slave gender roles, and that generalizing is a pain.

Completely agree, generalizing is a total pain =/

And where the hell were you types of people when I was a geek?? =/ It took me 3 bloody years of hard work to transform myself into a social person =P and here I am now hearing about how people actually go for geeks... this is reality shattering =/
