Title: ba ba da da i need help with my girlfriend
Post by: J-cob9000 on 19 Aug 2008, 11:51
so.
i'm 14.
yeah, i know young.

I've never had a girlfriend until now.
i feel all special and stuff inside.

so.
me being the shy bastard i am, asked her out over IM.
we've been friends for like.. a year now?
I've always liked her and she knew it.
so, yesterday, this happens...
yoohoopants:   will you be my girlfrann?
yoohoopants:   ugh
yoohoopants:   blush blush blush
loIdinosaurs:   Wil there be sex? :O
yoohoopants:   sure if you want
yoohoopants:   has to be protected though
loIdinosaurs:   lololol
yoohoopants:   dun want no babies
loIdinosaurs:   xD
loIdinosaurs:   I like babies!

So.

stuff like that.

problem is.
she's nice on IM and stuff.
but today after school she like.. ignored me. I was standing there talking to someone else and then i just shut up and stood there for a while. She left without saying bye or anything.

you're first mistake is that you're asking the INTERNET for advice about GIRLS.

you see what you did wrong there?

Whenever I'm faced with any problem I just ask myself what would Steve McQueen do in this situation. It always seems to work out for the best.

However, I can't really imagine Steve McQueen asking out a girl via IM.....

The obvious solution to this is to advise the forumite to either "STICK IT IN HER POOPER" or "suck the next seven dicks you see," but I am unclear on the legality of putting forth such advice to a minor.

Please advise me on how to handle this, internet.

While I wait, I will give some clearly legal advice to the original poster: You type like a retard. I have seen retards type in person and that is how they do it. If you want to have any lasting relationships in the future, learn not to type like a retard.

Hey, um... This is probably not the best site for this kind of thread. People won't take it very well, as you're already seeing. You may want to find more of a teen advice board.

And guys, he's 14 and excited about his first girlfriend. Romance + Youth = unfortunate choices sometimes.

To your question: you're doing fine. She was probably ignoring you because she's as confused as you are. It will take some time to redefine the boundaries of your relationship. Take her to the movie. Buy her some pop-corn. Hold her hand. Tell her that you "had a really good time tonight." Even if you didn't.

I would like it noted that I was an excellent typist and speller at the age of fourteen. This was primarily the result of the fact that I did not have a girlfriend and had plenty of time to practice.

I guess what I'm saying is dump the broad and do your homework. You obviously don't have time for both. I am actually kind of serious here. If you have such terrible anxiety and poor enough social skills that the first solution you had to this problem was "ask the internet," you probably shouldn't be dating yet.

wow. you guys have serious niceness issues.
and yeah, i'm aware that you guys are mostly nerds who've never *had* a girlfriend. I was hoping more for a girl to answer. That way she could tell me what *she* enjoys.
I mean, because you know how all girls come from the same mold and they are all exactly the same and what they enjoy would *obviously* be what Nikki would enjoy.
I'm well aware of what you're supposed to do with them, I was just hoping for some advice to keep her as my girlfriend for a bit longer.
Obsessions: I can handle both a girlfriend and homework at the same time. It's not like she's some high maintenance chick. She's pretty laid back.

And to the rest of you, fuck you.
And that is an awesome picture.
Thank you. I will use it sometime.
What is the prize?
Title: Re: ba ba da da i need help with my girlfriend
Post by: Leinad on 19 Aug 2008, 12:45
Ok, first a little bit of dating advice:

Make a point of going up and talking to her in just a normal way, first of all. Talk to her A LOT! You need to get to know her, not just have her be your girlfriend.
Secondly, don't just stand there if she walks up next to you, say "hi" "how was your day" wassup" or if you feel it will go over well "hey babe" and giver her a hug. I mean, come on, a lady likes to be noticed and feel appreciated and special. Don't pay more attention to someone you only classify as "someone else" when your freaking GIRLFRIEND walks up. Don't stop paying attention to them, but make it obvious to her that she is worth your time.

Secondly, post this in the blog-thread, that is what everyone else does.

I was more chucking at the fact that he asked us for help, then insulted us. It brought a smile to my day.

As for serious responses; A) You're 14 B) its the Intrawabs C) You don't type at what's considered a 'decent' level for seriousness and D) You're asking for help in not being extremely awkward at an age where you probably SHOULD be extremely awkward.

The most serious answer you're likely to get is from benji. Follow his advice.

what the hell dude, he's probably just kidding (the emphasis on "obviously" especially indicates this) and even if he isn't, it's generally best to assume the person is kidding if someone ever tells you something that upsets you. Much better for your blood pressure.

you two are making immature jokes about contraception

Funny, I was thinking how the jokes were unusually mature. As in, I'm really startled by the thought of a fourteen year old girl shouting SUPPORT MAH BABIES

PAGING JOE HOCKING!

Honestly, trying to get advice on the internet is asking to be made fun of.  Know what I can do, I can write in ITALICS or BOLDand not use the silly IM shit.  Trying to insult us by calling us "nerds" is laughable.  Everyone is a nerd.  Haven't you seen Revenge of the Nerds?  And nerds get more hells more action than non-nerds.

actually, i think dating at 14 is totally okay. even expected. it's good to have practice.

i'm aware that you guys are mostly nerds who've never *had* a girlfriend.

for this particular forum... not really true at all but i can understand why you're kind of pissed so i'll let that one slide. you wanted a girl to answer and you got it.
there isn't anything you can do to "keep" her as your girlfriend. i am going to be really frank about that. either she wants to be with you or she doesn't and if you try to pressure her, you're a dick. so, here's what you can do: be nice to her. think about what she wants, not what you want. communication and honesty are absolutely crucial in relationships, especially first ones, so make sure you talk to her and make her feel okay with talking to you about whatever you want to discuss, and don't lie about anything cos that is a recipe for disaster. of course, this sounds really self-explanatory but it's a lot harder to do in person because it's scary to be honest about things. this isn't advice to keep her as your girlfriend per se, and also you're like 14 so really how serious is this going to end up being. mostly these are things that it is good to remember when it comes to being in relationships in general. the more you can skip the bullshit the better.

we do have a blog thread, so keep that in mind for future posts. also, the majority of posters on this forum are quite a bit older than 14 and may not care too much about your girl troubles so tread lightly.

that was sarcasm.
and yes, sarcasm does not work on the internet, i know. but i felt as though i had to anyway.
but yeah, this might've actually worked if you guys weren't going to be complete retards about it.
You could've clicked on the thread, read it and been like, "Okay, this kid is stupid and doesn't need to be here, but since i don't know one thing about him or who he is, i will be nice. He could be a perfectly mature 14 year old." And then you would've said something like Leinad said.
See, Leinad is nice.
Follow his example and stop being bitches.

Tangent: I was ruminating just the other day on how I have a hard time remembering that to most people the word "nerd" is an insult, because to me it's kind of a badge of honor.

you guys have rather pissed me off, so someone can close or whatever.

Unfortunately for you this has been a pretty good example of why it's not a good idea to start threads like this here. The lesson for you to take away is that when you post a message out in public among strangers, people tend to talk back.

Oh shit, I think I hurt a fourteen year old's feelings.

The only feelings I had at fourteen were towards my substitute History teacher.

Seriously, though, I hated being talked down to as a teenager too. You know what the best way to respond to that is? Not being a reactionary crybaby about it. if someone ribs you for being an idiot, take it in stride or posit your position without coming off as a moron or jerk who can't take a joke. If you act like a child, people will treat you like a child and I find myself hard pressed to believe you've never heard this before. If you act mature about it, which you've most assuredly not done, people will react well and stop ribbing on you.

P.S.: "Never had girlfriends" is probably not the insult you want to use on one of the internet's most webcestuous forums (Or anywhere, really, that crack stops holding water with anyone over the age of seventeen). Seriously, Tommydski probably has his dick in another forumite as we speak. Try making fun of the fact a lot of us are old as dirt and probably don't have souls.

Fourteen is hardly what I would call a "child." The OP is more than old enough to have long since learned proper spelling and social skills. His age has nothing to do with his behavior. Shit, look at some of the other forumites we have here around his age. Some of our highest quality posters are in their mid teens.

There's nothing wrong with calling something/someone "Gay" as long as they actually are, in the literal sense.

i should probably clarify this -

Quote
the majority of posters on this forum are quite a bit older than 14 and may not care too much about your girl troubles

because it's a bit harsher than i intended. what i really meant to say was that this forum probably isn't the best venue for your girl troubles. most of the posters here are quite a bit older and we try to avoid that kind of stuff in general. maybe try to read some of the discussions and get a feel for the place before posting next time? not to be a jerk but this particular forum is probably unlike others you've been to in that it is more of a networking community of sorts, and throwing insults at people you don't really know tends to catch them off guard, and then you end up with crap like this.

That was actually a bit of advice as well. What I'm saying is don't do things that are stupid. Think before you act. Does a forum with the average age of 20-something really care about 14 year old girl drama? No, not really, as you have clearly seen. Think before you post. It will help you greatly. However, if you keep on shoving your head in shit, I'll keep on laughing at you.

And do not use the word gay in a negative connotation. The sooner you break that habit, the better

I ain't read this thread, or at least most of it, and I know it is a joke right now, but no one has posted a decent long reply yet, so here it is. I am 14 (almost 15), so we're pretty much in the same boat here, well, kinda.

Quote
I would like it noted that I was an excellent typist and speller at the age of fourteen. This was primarily the result of the fact that I did not have a girlfriend and had plenty of time to practice.

Before I begin what I have to say, I would like to say I am (for my age group and a couple of years older) an excellent typist and speller. This is also mainly due to the fact that I haven't had a girlfriend for two years. However, most of this typing prowess came along trying to get a girlfriend for 2 years.

I was in a relationship like this 2 years ago. It kind of ended badly. We never talked in real life, never really made out or much, I got too clingy, she dumped me and I went into a pretty depressive state (for a 12 year old). The fact that she then started dating a pretty-much-lowlife and became a fairly large slut didn't help. My advice for this is, try your absolute hardest that you ever can to talk to her about stuff whenever you are around each other. You're going out, so I assume you know each other's interests. If you have some in common, try and connect with her through that, spark up a conversation (I've known this to win over the affection of a girl better than all the posturing and flirting anyone can do). If you don't have anything in common, or much at all, you need to find out hers and try and connect with them. For example, if she's into music, listen to some of the music she likes. If she's into sport, try some sport or at least read up and become knowledgable about it. But the major thing is, do it in moderation. If you do it too much, or hang around with here too much, the she'll become annoyed and start thinking you're a bit clingy. Try and be ultra-receptive to her emotions and know when she wants you around and when she doesn't. If, after all this, you still aren't connecting and talking, then dump her (no matter how painful it is for you), because it just ain't gonna work out.

"slut" is a noun

Title: Re: ba ba da da i need help with my girlfriend
Post by: SimpsonsParadox on 19 Aug 2008, 14:17
The fact that a 14 year old can be safely described as a slut either means that I have severely repressed my memories from when I was 14 year olds or else the whole world went to hell in a handbasket in around half a decade.

Also, slut is a noun (The slut walked) or an adjective (The way Sally walk makes her look like such a slut.) At least, I think?
Title: Re: ba ba da da i need help with my girlfriend

Did you just use the word "slut" to describe a 12 year old girl? Because I'm pretty sure there are more appropriate adjectives.

Hey, I'm sure you know a hell of a lot more about my personal situations than me. Because you were there, and I wouldn't know what words to use to describe what happened.

And wake up, this is England. Slut is more appropriate than is pleasant to imagine, in most cases.

Stop posting replies whilst I type! 18 for the long message, one when I clicked reply and one when I clicked post..And then another one whilst writing this.

edit: I'm pretty sure they played rugby.

The sluts are getting younger and younger.

Ever seen the movie Little Miss Sunshine? That movie parodies well the insurgence of slutty 12 year olds. I think the OP and anyone else that age shouldn't be so hung up on getting their brains fucked out as early as possible.

Because everyone knows, if you haven't had your dick blown 9000 times before the age of 16, you just fail at life.

Nope, still a noun (the "a" gives it away.) "Slutty" is an adjective, so you could say "The way Sally walks makes her look slutty."

Although, for all I know it is used as an adjective in California. "She is so slut" totally sounds like something Californians would say.

Thanks! Also, I lived in California for 14 years, and I never heard 'Slut' used in that way. However, I have heard it used as a curse (Slut!), a string of curses (You Effing Slutty Slut!), and as a verb (Oh, she just sluts for a living). The word 'slut', like the profession, apparently gets around.

Also, tommydiski, I hear they have intensive study camps for that. Or is that catching the gays? I always get them mixed up.

5th grade was the first time I had sex ed. I remember one girl fainted during the description of penile erection. Another girl really liked the word Urethra and announced that she wanted to use it as the name of her first child.

Yeah it's hard to distinguish via the internet, but I have never really been a fan of using the term slut to be an insult. Sex is so fucking rad, how could having a lot of it be a bad thing. Also, "she is SO slut" is in my vocabulary now and there's no way I am getting rid of it.

a lot of it has to do with voice inflection and so on. i am not usually offended when friends call me a slut, and vice versa, because it is not usually said in a malicious or hurtful way - to me it's just a word that describes someone who's really promiscuous. sometimes i do things that are pretty slutty and the word makes sense. i probably wouldn't call anybody a slut whom i didn't know well enough for them to understand that i am not trying to insult them. it's just a much more casual and fun word than "promiscuous" or "sexually active" or any of that freaky clinical sounding stuff.

Probably not, though we seem to have moved on to jokes about sex with minors now.

Here's a classic someone once told me:

A man comes home to find his lover packing her bags. "What's going on?" he asks.
"I'm leaving you," she says.
"Why?" he asks.
"Because I heard a rumor that you were a pedophile," she says.
He looks at her, astounded, and says, "my, that's a really big word for an 8 year old."

Utter madness. I love it.
My opinion on the word slut- It's an insult because while sex is a great thing, sleeping with anything that breathes kills the joy and novelty of it. IMHO, it's much better to meet someone special and get to know them and have sex with them and learn together what an amazing experience it can be.
The alternative being fumbling around at the age of 12 and dealing with an STD at the age of 15.

... that is my opinion on sluttiness. Um I'm done.

I generally tend to agree with you for my personal life. I don't sleep around a lot. But I don't look down on people who do. I also think it's very possible to sleep with a lot of people in a healthy and responsible way.

i first had sex at a pretty young age. of the 20-30 people i've slept with i was only in a committed relationship with two of them. to each their own, i guess? everyone's always told me that sex has to be this beautiful exclusive thing but frankly i just like having sex. everyone is different and every experience is different. i've never regretted having it so young and i've always been responsible with it. i've found that both sleeping with someone you really care about and sleeping with someone because it's just fun are pretty wonderful experiences for their own reasons.

mostly i just get annoyed when people assume that being promiscuous or having sex at an early age automatically leads to stds and unwanted pregancies. as long as i've been having sex i've also known how to put on a condom. i'm not a complete idiot.

What? no. The reason the 5 year old got pregnant was because she went through puberty at a really really young age. Babies aren't fully developed yet, there is no way they could go through puberty and get some sperm in the placenta and have it impregnate them.

You're doing fine - don't worry about trying to conform to norms which are probably meaningless.  I didn't get my first girlfriend until I was 21 (and that was because I was set up - but I won't go into that now).  Didn't stop me having a great life, children, grandchildren, interests, conversation...

i don't really agree with the age of consent either, but it isn't an arbitrary number; it kind of makes sense in north america and some european countries because these societies are constructed so that you can't really be an adult and make mature decisions until you're about 16-18 anyway. up until that point you're pretty much forced into being dependent on your parents because there are a whole slew of laws stopping you from doing things like owning property or driving a car or voting or holding a job or dropping out of school and so on and so forth. this makes you more immature mentally, as well, than someone in another environment who's basically been treated as an adult and had the same rights from a much younger age.

biologically speaking, girls can have children as soon as they get their first period but we look down on that because it's from a social standpoint that it isn't seen as acceptable.

There are actually medical reasons to look down on it as well. If a girl gets pregnant before she stops growing, medical problems can result for both mother and child. While it's true that, historically, women got married and started having children at a very young age, they also died in child birth at a very young age at a rather atrocious rate.

P.S. to clarify: the young age was not the only cause of the high rate of women dieing in labor, but was probably one of them.
Title: Re: ba ba da da i need help with my girlfriend
Post by: KvP on 19 Aug 2008, 16:42
Where the law is concerned the age of consent isn't entirely arbitrary, but I think (and I could be wrong) what SWM was getting at are the rather famous cases where, say, a senior in high school gets thrown in jail for having sex with his freshman / sophomore girlfriend, and the like. It's when you try and justify the legality of a 17 year old being allowed to fuck a 20 year old but not a 21 year old (to use numbers I just made up on the spot) where it becomes really tricky.

And I mean sure, lots of responsibilities are given at 18 along with the right to have sex at your whim, that's a valid point, but still, when you compare a fresh 18 year old with a 17-year-and-364-day old and say one can have a certain right and the other can't based on their age, you can't say it's not arbitrary. But I think that's something we can all agree upon anyway.

Not only that, but how fair is it to the baby being born if their mother is 14 and has nowhere near the resources and/or maturity to raise said child?
Ehh... Tricky, tricky. Yours is an understandable sentiment, but watch out for that viscous incline o'er yonder (god, what the fuck is wrong with me today?) The age of the mother is certainly an element, but remember that age and maturity are not necessarily connected. Some teens would probably make better mothers than some 30-somethings. And if we're talking about what's fair to the baby, should we say that the poor should not procreate? Then we're sterilizing the lower classes just like in the 30's and OH MY GOD WILLY NILLY EVERYWHERE. Seriously though, given support by parents or grandparents or the community or the like a young mother should be as well equipped as anybody to raise a child. Prospects for the future may be less than optimal but fuck, when is anything in life ever optimal?

the age of consent in canada before 2006 was 14 and i am still not sure if this is better or worse than 16. i think 18 is a fucking ridiculous age but that might just be me.

Post by: jhocking on 19 Aug 2008, 16:46
It doesn't need to be a line. It can be a gradual ramping up. Like, at 16 you can have a little sex, at 17 you can have a little more, and by 18 you can have sex as much as you want.

Or maybe it can be like a learner's permit for driving. At 16 you can have sex with 18 year olds but not other 16 year olds (ie. learners.)

Four pages in and I am almost certain that the OP doesn't care any more, but to answer your original question you should try as much as possible to behave toward her much as you usually would.  You two don't have to start snoggin' and such until you're comfortable with it, just talk to her and spend time with her and get comfortable with her.  She probably ignored you because she's in the same boat as you right now - she doesn't know what the hell is going on or what to do either.  Just be cool and hang out with her and act normal as possible and show her that you guys are still friends.

Also, the relatively new people who are jumping on bandwagons and/or getting all huffy and/or trying to be funny and just generally being dumbcunts in this thread should probably steer clear of the next one of these.  Usually when these kinds of threads happen popping your head up to add some form of a "haha, yeah man" post serves no purpose other than to aggravate the locals, and joining in any kind of fracas will generally get you added to a watch-list (ie: mine) for abusive/aggressive posting, so on the whole it's not really a good idea.

Or maybe it can be like a learner's permit for driving. At 16 you can have sex with 18 year olds but not other 16 year olds (ie. learners.)

I think in Germany it is that if you are under 16 you can only have sex with people under 21.

I don't know about other states, but that's pretty much how it happens in New York

Quote from: Wikipedia
    * Sex with a person under 17 is a misdemeanor if the perpetrator is at least 16 (see infra). (“Sexual misconduct,” NY Penal Law § 130.20.)

    * Sex with a person under 17 is a Class “E” felony if the perpetrator is at least 21. (“Rape in the third degree,” NY Penal Law § 130.25; “Criminal sexual act in the third degree,” NY Penal Law § 130.40.)

    * Sex with a person under 15 is a Class “D” felony if the perpetrator is at least 18. However, it is a defense to this charge if an 18 year-old perpetrator proves by a preponderance that he or she was less than four years older than the victim. This is not a defense to any other charge that might apply, i.e., Sexual misconduct, supra. (“Rape in the second degree,” NY Penal Law § 130.30; “Criminal sexual act in the second degree,” NY Penal Law § 130.45.)

    * Sex with a person under 13 is a Class “B” violent felony if the perpetrator is at least 18. (“Rape in the first degree,” NY Penal Law § 130.35[4]; “Criminal sexual act in the first degree,” NY Penal Law § 130.50[4].)

    * Sex with a person under 11 is a Class “B” violent felony if the perpetrator is at least 16. (“Rape in the first degree,” NY Penal Law § 130.35[3]; “Criminal sexual act in the first degree,” NY Penal Law § 130.50[3].)

"Sex," as used above, refers to the four conspicuous types of sexual acts, including "sexual intercourse", and the three forms of acts known as "deviant sexual intercourse" under the former (pre-2003) law, now called "oral sexual conduct" (both types), and "anal sexual conduct."

Non-intercourse sexual activity is also regulated based on age. Non-intercourse sexual activity, called "sexual contact" is defined as "any touching of the sexual or other intimate parts of a person not married to the actor for the purpose of gratifying sexual desire of either party. It includes the touching of the actor by the victim, as well as the touching of the victim by the actor, whether directly or through clothing." (NY Penal Law § 130.00[3].) If the person is underage such "sexual contact" can constitute the crime of "sexual abuse."

    * "Sexual contact" with a person less than 17 but at least 14, by a perpetrator who is at least five years older than the victim is "Sexual abuse in the third degree," a class B misdemeanor. (NY Penal Law § 130.55.)

    * "Sexual contact" with a person less than 14 is "Sexual abuse in the second degree," a Class A misdemeanor, if the perpetrator is at least 16. (NY Penal Law § 130.60[2].)

    * "Sexual contact" with a person less than 11 is "Sexual abuse in the first degree," a class "D" violent felony, if the perpetrator is at least 16. (NY Penal Law § 130.65[3].)

It's a graduated scale based upon the age of the person committing the act, and I feel that the system is more or less fair and enforced in an appropriate manner. I mean, the first law is hardly ever enforced, but the other ones are pretty strict, and I'm okay with that.

Reading the rest of the article, it is a bit more vast than the other states, but it is a sliding scale that I am comfortable with.

When it comes to dating in middle school/high school, I'd say the most important thing is to forget about the title. Dating is exactly that, going on dates. Asking someone to be your girlfriend is not the route to take. Ask her out, take her to dinner (Movies are a bad idea for a first date, you sit in the dark for 2 hours, not talking to eachother.) Then hang out with her in a more formal situation. Just get to know the girl. Then, when you get more comfortable with eachother, things will advance. Eventually, you will work your way into the title of boyfriend and girlfriend, but that's not what's important. What's important is the relationship.

As soon as you want a significant other for the emotional benefits of having someone that close, that's when you should get one. Not when you just want to be able to say you have a girlfriend.

I don't know about other states, but that's pretty much how it happens in New York

I think it was similar in New Jersey, where I spent my teen years. During some assembly a police officer explained it to us. It was something like at 16, you can have sex with anyone up to 4 years older then yourself. So at 16, they can be as old as 20, at 17 they can be up to 21, and at 18 your fair game.

In the states, we usually just say 18 because by 18 you can have sex legally no matter what state your in and no matter how much older your partner is. But other then that it's all over the place. I believe one of the southern states has consent as "13 or older if you're married, 18 or older otherwise."

D'aw, everybody gives the boy a tough time. Original poster: You probably don't care anymore, but I might actually be qualified to answer this as a female around your age, though the advice is generic:
Be yourself
Respect your ladyfriend
And someone else said it, but try not to act too different from how you used to. There's a reason you were friends for a year beforehand.

If you were looking for options as to what you could do together, I live in a town where there's not much of anything and I can't drive either, so all I got is (getting rides to) movies and getting coffee. There's always hanging out at each others' houses and doing stuff with mutual friends, too. Or just spend all your time snogging. Or, uh, ask her what she wants to do? That usually works.

No. You can flip them over and pretend they are a twelve year old boy.

You hear about why the ancient greeks kept little slave boys?

I've always thought that the rule 'your age, divided by two, plus eight' is a pretty reasonable estimate of what is admissible. I mean sure you get the 40 year old with a 28 year old, but that isn't that weird.

Also, how did I miss out on this thread?

It gets around.

So does Tommy. Because he is a slut. Get it? It's topical humor!

Part of me wants to admonish some of the regulars for being asses to the OP but I dunno, I really don't want to encourage more threads like this.  On the one hand the OP is pretty young and doesn't know any better, but on the other

See, I find this to be the primary redeeming factor of this thread. It opens up for a good debate (Albeit, completely unintentionally, obviously):

We are really not a very "old" forum, despite the jokes. Sure, we have a couple people in their thirties and then a couple guys in their sixties, then a series of a few dozen mid-twenties folks who contribute routinely, but by and large, this place is mostly teenagers. We all know Sam and Ruyi and Clobs. They're all in the sixteen year old age bracket by my last check.

Basically where I'm going with this is that age is no excuse for being a tit. Some of our best quality posters are in this kid's age bracket and you know what? The good teens are far from the exception to the rule. Believe it or not, I was actually quite personable at that age (I didn't have a lot of friends, so I tried to avoid pissing people off) and I've known tons of people who were as well.

My first real social online experience was via AOL chat rooms and message boards, primarily comic book related (When I was thirteen).  Most of the other people I knew ran from my age to as old as late twenties and the teenagers were all well spoken and reasonable.

Due to my experience online over the last eleven years, I've learned that there is no reason to cut anyone any slack just because they're a teenager. Maybe if he were like nine, but by the time you're fourteen, you should have a basic grasp of societal norms, how to handle yourself in a social environment and basic cause and effect. Mollycoddling teenagers who act out and do stupid things is only going to result in them continuing their idiotic behavior. Were some of us overly harsh? Perhaps, but even some of the people who tried to be nice have admitted that this kid probably wasn't going to fit in here anyway. Now maybe he'll shape up for the next forum he frequents.

Sure, we may have metaphorically brought a gun to a knife fight, but people need to learn this shit. Imagine if this kid did this in a real life situation. Can you imagine, at fourteen, popping into a bar and asking all the dudes there for relationship advice? It probably would not go all that well.

they weren't question and answer. The ancient greeks kept little boys because they looked like little girls/ vice verca. it was a response to ptommydski's joke about twelve year old girls.

the other part was what I thought the general rule for appropriate sex was.

It may be rude of me to have skipped over the last three pages of this thread, but I'm hoping one of you will be able to see past that and answer a question for me: what's with this whole "omglol u asked the internet epic fail" attitude?

A forum strikes me as a great place to ask about this sorta thing. I mean, if you're fourteen and would like relationship advice, who do you think you'd be better off asking? Your peers (those few you can have a convo about this sorta thing with, that is) or a forum frequented by [presumably intelligent and thoughtful!] people of different ages, different backgrounds and different experiences? Where everyone has the added advantages of anonymity and the opportunity to think about what they say and how they say it?

Come on. Option 2 is a pretty sensible choice if you ask me.

I'd sorta understand the scorn and derision if it were about socialising on the internet, but the OP didn't seem to be about socialising so much as about getting some sorta useful input (which might be the exact opposite of socialising :o).

Okay I'm done. Should I read the rest of the thread now???

He was looking for useful input from people he doesn't know. Where's the sense in that?

Wouldn't you find it kind of dumb if I posted my first ever post in this end of the forums with a new thread saying "Guys, I got a girl pregnant and she's not willing to abort. What should I do?!"
Title: Re: ba ba da da i need help with my girlfriend
Post by: Aimless on 20 Aug 2008, 13:01
I'd be far more interested in the question than in who was asking it! But mostly because I've wondered about that myself.

Fear of that scenario is like the one thing that can balance my irrepressible urge to engage in sexual shenanigans all over the world!

But, with that said, I must admit that I don't really understand why you have to _know_ someone to be able to give them a respectful if not helpful response (or to ask them for it). And, furthermore, I'm not sure if the example you gave is really comparable to the OP!

I do recognise that knowing who you're talking to seems to be very important to many (most?) posters on this forum.

It's a matter of it being a relatively personal question. You don't walk into a bar and start asking random patrons for relationship advice, why would you wander into a close knit forum and do the same?
Title: Re: ba ba da da i need help with my girlfriend
Post by: Aimless on 20 Aug 2008, 13:19
But I thought it was established earlier in this thread that an internet forum isn't all that much like a real life bar :)

However, having personal conversations with strangers at bars, parties, etc isn't all that unusual in my experience. Or all that awful, as long as all parties have the option of getting out of the convo whenever they like.

And tbh, the only person giving out any private info is the person doing the asking!

EDIT: What I'm getting from your posts is that to many of you this is about propriety, etiquette, unwritten rules of socialising, that sort of thing. I can understand that aspect of it, I just don't understand why anyone should be so keen on those unwritten rules as to be an ass to a stranger!

I've been acting like a dick in this thread because if we actually start giving advice to teenagers about shit they can figure out on their own then it will never, ever stop. I've seen it ruin forums before, it's not pretty and I don't want it happening to QC.

Our experiences differ, in that respect. In the years I've spent on various forums, both smaller and larger than this one, I have never seen a forum be ruined by people doing things like giving relationship advice. All those forums are still thriving! The few forums I've seen be ruined have instead been ruined by groupthink. Mostly the element of hostility towards newcomers :)

So where does that leave us? I can't dismiss your experiences out of hand but you can't dismiss mine either.

Okay so it may be incredibly annoying for this particular forum to have to weather a storm of relationship threads from strangers, I get that.

EDIT: Yeah, the first responses set the tone for the rest of the discussion here, which I think is a shame. Makes things hella unpredictable and thus scary.

My advice: don't ask the internet. Just do stuff. Usually by your 4th or 5th girlfriend, you figure out what not to do. Like sticking it in her pooper. Most of them don't like that. Notice I said most. But you've got another 4-10 years to figure that out.

On a side note, you will have achieved true wisdom when you are finally able to go "I don't know shit all about women" and be comfortable with it. Anyone that says otherwise is wrong or a liar.

Depends on what you want from an internet forum. Probably a good chunk of people would have loved it if Kieffer had been here for the first post. Or maybe Chuck.

I imagine the thread wouldn't have lasted more than half a page if Chuck got to it first. I'd bet he'd just respond along the lines of "No. Fuck this thread" and that would've been the end of it before Est came along and locked it for uglying up the front page.

Personally, I have no problem with someone asking a question like this on an internet forum. I find jon's argument that a person asking this question in a public forum should be prepared for scorn rather disingenuous, since he's the main one heaping on scorn.

My main beef with the OP has nothing to do with the question, it's the fact that following the question his posts conveyed a rather shitty personality. As in, I have no problem with the question, I have a problem with him.

For reference, if you skim over the first page again, note that it isn't until halfway down that I decided I don't like the guy. Prior to that, I was actually defending him.

Well yeah, but it's not exactly a surprising reaction when you treat a kid like that, esp. not on a forum! I prefer to see how a person can be at his best (or at least not at his worst) before passing judgement. Can you imagine how a stranger would judge some of your friends here on QC if they only had this kind of thread to go on??

I don't like him - not because he's a newbie or because he's young, but because he seems ignorant, calls things "gay" with negative connotations and just doesn't seem to actually contribute with anything. I know that is an asshole thing to say, but read through his older posts and compare to, say, Ally's or Sam's or Liz's, and decide for yourself who you'd want to stick around.

And that's another thing I tend to avoid, irl as well as on forums!

If it were up to some people, I wouldn't have stuck around on QC for very long either :p

I don't expect anyone to go out of their way to defend someone who actively hurts or antagonises others without provocation, but I think it's good to try to turn a bad convo into a better one. Okay so he's an obnoxious kid--does that mean that we can't engage him? Teach him better posting, over time?

Although I suppose it would be preferable if the arrival and integration of a newcomer never required any effort on the part of the community.

in Joe's defense, the kid really is sort of a douche.

he came into some other thread a few weeks ago, i believe, and immediately said something like "i'm fourteen. i'm awesome" and everyon was kind of like "...okay. whatever." and then he started acting like a jerk because...i don't know...we didn't instantly approve of him? it was ridiculous, anways.

from what i've seen so far, that's just how he is and we can't be held responsible.




also, he might even be a very subtle and slow-working troll. i'm not really sure.

Guys, this thread was turning in a very interesting direction when Tommydski started talking about internet philosophy and the direction threads can take depending on who gets the first post.

I wish I could philosophize enough to push it further in that direction, because well, I thought it was very interesting. As far as I'm aware, most threads that are declared 'awesome' by one of the long time members through out the thread, are usually threads that are hijacked at one point or another, and often are the result of some ridiculous statement, or some assholery.

Sadly, this discussion wasn't pushed, and we are now again laying blame and defending people because of /for their actions.

PS. Tommy, I think that's an excellent idea for a thread. That along with the blog thread should probably keep those help! threads limited to one place.

About the troll thing. I would have sworn, when I first started reading the thread, that he was just somebody's alt account and was just making this all up and that someone would be all like "nice try alt account of blahblahblah." But when no one did, I began to think he was just messing around and wasn't really serious. I gave him a serious response, but I am still not entirely sure if he was being genuine in his post, because it seems a tad on the silly side, but you know, whatever.

Anyways - Then I guess you could do that specifically (eg. in this thread) rather than to be generally hostile! The latter won't teach anyone anything good, will it?? I get the frustration, though.

As for liking people, should you have to [pretend to] like someone in order to be courteous or respectful??

Not saying this in criticism of you guys, or exclusively wrt this specific case... just generally curious :)

I've a hard time figuring out what flies and what doesn't, in this the most actively moderated forum I've ever joined.

he came into some other thread a few weeks ago, i believe, and immediately said something like "i'm fourteen. i'm awesome" and everyon was kind of like "...okay. whatever." and then he started acting like a jerk because...i don't know...we didn't instantly approve of him? it was ridiculous, anways.
er.. I wouldn't do that. link please?
I want full-blown proof of this.



Okay, i need to say something.
You've all got a mom right?
Or at least foster parents or something?
Have you never heard her say, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all."?
Same thing applies on the internet. There's a reason your browser has a back button.
Seriously, if you don't like a thread or something in it, leave. You don't have to.. up your rep or something by insulting the OP, in fact, most people would probably like you more if you just left.
I'm sure you will all find some "omg epic phail" in this but seriously, you tell me to grow up but I'm at least six years younger than most of you. I think that the rest of you need to first.

And yeah, i got pretty..
douchey?
But let's say that you're fourteen and are being verbally fucking gang raped. What would you do?
I'm sure most of you would say that you would just 'be cool' or something. But you'd want to defend yourself.

And yeah, sorry for calling Pokemon 'gay'. I don't usually say that, but it's not like I'm talking about somebody that way. It's not like I don't like gay people, I do in fact have three friends who are openly gay. So yeah.

And you can't say that I'm acting like a douche when the rest of you are acting the way you are.
Also, how is calling some gay much different than calling someone a bag used for vaginal cleaning?
You people are messed up.

Must we do this?

Yes.

If the point is not belaboured to an astounding degree, how will he learn?

Edit: Oh mate, not a strong move on your part. Especially the bit about having gay friends how we should all grow up ALL OF IT!

Dear God please just stop.

I would like you a lot more if you would just leave.

Dude, just give up, cut your losses, and leave. You're just embarrassing yourself. Stop.

If we all stay very still, maybe it will go away. (I typed this before your response, and it is directed at the thread as the general entity in question, not you)

Well, y'see..Objectifying somebody as a bag used for vaginal cleaning is obviously a falsehood, and whilst psychologically damaging, it's not exactly changing or putting down their way of life. Using the term gay in a derogatory fashion, however, is putting down somebody's way of life.

Yes, but c'mon...What percentage of human reaction would be wiped out if it was a cardinal sin to break? Hell, more than 60% is my estimate.

Fuck it, I update my post every time I get a 'this posted whilst ur writtin lulz', and this must be the 5th time on this message.

I'm trying to take you seriously Umbreon, but the way your write out your posts just offends my eyes. It would be far easier for people to take you seriously if you didn't write in such a childish way.

I would say rob a bank so you can pay for child support.

EDIT: That would be the first ever amputation with a flame thrower!

I'd say your situation is closer to 'haelp'.

Seriously, can we just let this die? Y'know, amputate before the infection spreads?

Childish way?
And how is that? Sure, I use too many new lines. It's just a habit of mine.
I IM too much.
But yeah, someone close this.
You guys are all such douches.

Why is respectful treatment something that has to be earned?

Quite right.

Guys, not being nice to someone - anyone - is a sign of arrogance, lack of confidence, and immaturity.  Can you all say, hand on heart, that you have never in your life been a bit naive or even stupid about something in your turn?  Good-natured ribbing is one thing, but that is not what we seen in parts of this thread.  It is actually easier and less stressful to make a habit of being respectful with people you don't know; and if that doesn't work out, well, just leave it be - there should be plenty else to occupy your minds more fruitfully.
