I love his earring. I know that's completely random and has nothing to do with this picture, but his earring just makes his character all the much better.... And sexier I may add.... Especially in that third panel....
If you don't mind me asking, why do women so cherish such seemingly spontaneous and capricious little acts of romance? As much as I've learned from my observations, there are still so many things that I don't know about women; I'm hoping the more I know will make it less likely I'll screw up in the future as badly as I've screwed up in the past.
If I may speak theoretically, I'd say it might have something to do with my hypothesis that women wish to be romanced by feeling special/unique and off the general concencious that women's psyche's are based more on emotions than cognitive thought processes. That being said, it may very well be that random acts of romance and boyish charm spark the flame of passion in a woman's heart in part beacuse it is sparatic and unpredictable, summoning those feelings of what it means to a woman to be loved, and that's what drives them wild. I'm willing to bet that whoever coined the phrase "variety is the spice of life" was a woman.
At least that's my theory. The best I can do is observe your kind from a distance, as my proximety to women generally results in awkward situations at best and catastrophic agonies at worst. I've come to look at women's minds like chemestry experiments, contemplating how hormones and other various chemicals traded across the neurotransmitters under a situational basis result in what kind of responses and outcomes as if I was working with molecular compounds; perhaps not the best way to look at the opposite gender. But what's problematic is that my varrying degress of observation and compulsive need to find out everything I want to know is often hampered by the lack of impulsive learning of those I question and that I f*cking hate the answer "I don't know." That's part of the reason why I'm single again.
What a nice lengthy comment that was. I actually think you are right. However, I think you should stop thinking about women as chemistry experiments. We are hardly different than men. Everyone is different. I think you should just treat us as you would anyone.
I just hope is wasn't too lengthy for you; the drawback with my goal to speak with elegance and intelligent charisma is my heavily information-based comments do not in the slightest incorporate any sense of conciseness, sometimes resulting in cases of "TL;DR" from whomever I may have been communicating with.
I'd hope I'm right too, as acting upon something based on incorrect or ill-conceived concepts is bound to be inexpedient. But I don't look at women as a whole as a mere compilation of chemicals that need to be understood, that's the approach I take when I can't/don't understand a woman's train of thought when it is swept off by the tides of emotion down paths I can scarcely fathom. My annalysies and logic are very scientific-oriented, so anything I approach is done so from such an angle; trying to comprehend how the individual workings of the smaller pieces effect the entire construct as a whole. While I admit there have been rare times that my quests for knowledge become deluded and collapse into crusades for understanding denied, but there's nothing wrong with the method, is there?
I agree that everyone is different to one extent or anotherresumably, the only way to truly figure out a woman entirely is on a one-at-a-time basis. Same with guys, but we're much easier to figure out. However, I whole-heartedly disagree on your other point; men and women are VASTLY different from each other. Otherwise, I think my understanding would be a little more solid as opposed to just a few basic, shambling theories and speculations. And while I can get along fine with women on a social level, treating a women like they're just another person isn't going to work and isn't really my style when it's on a mutual level. But he stakes a higher then; WAY higher. Hopefully what I can learn now will leave me better prepared for a woman I'd want to spend the eternities with, to make myself someone worth having, or if I find I've accidentally gotten into another relationship again. Knowing, after all, is half the battle.
Well, you are a very convincing argument. Of course, you have again with this comment, made me change my mind. Women and Men are very, very different. And I also agree with your approach, knowing that you only use the scientific method when you come to a particularly stumping issue. I believe I am jealous of the knowledge you must have achieved through this state of mind/idea of learning.
Really? Huh, that's interesting; most people only bother listening until I bore them or say something they disargee with. I've rarely met someone who agreed with me in full on anything, let alone change their mind upon revelation of my understandings. However, bear in mind that I only know my side of any given topic, and that something like this is something I can never truly comprehend in full. I know men and women are different, but I know that there are instances were the two are more alike than I think, and others where I don't even know just how right I am. The best I can do is sharpen the accuracy of my observations with constant vigilence, or at least until someone far wiser than myself informs me of the irrefutable truth.
I'm honestly a little honored that you think so highly my aptitudes for reasoning. But I really don't think I'm all that much smarter than most anybody else; I'm just capable of looking at things differently than other people.
