I Wonder...



Recently, at my tiny gym, there has been a debate. Mostly about one guy.

He doesn't talk to women unless he's interested in them sexually.

WHAT?

Are you kidding me?

One of the women that works out at the gym is in his training group. They meet at ungodly hours in the morning to train. She's over 6' tall and can bench around 300 pounds. (I think I'm tough benching 125.) She's massive. Without drugs. We're all drug-free. But she's very nice and interesting. And spots him when he's benching over 500 pounds.

Anyway, he has no use for her. Rarely speaks to her. Because he wouldn't want to sleep with her. That is his reasoning.

My question is....

Is this guy a throwback to the Caveman? OR do you guys think that way and just never tell us.

He needs a club and two friggin sticks rub together to make fire... cuz he'll need something to keep him warm....cuz he's gonna die cold and lonely with a caca attitude like that.

How does he know he isn't interested in her sexually if he doesn't talk to her. It isn't ALL just about looks ya know. A lot of girls don't show off how alluring they are until you get to experience their sense of humor or how smart they are and all that awesome stuff.

That guy is just a dirt bag. I'm sure there are a lot of guys like him, but then again, there are a lot of women like him too. ;-)

Real Live Lesbian said...

Diva: I think so, too.

Jay: I sooo agree with you! Oh and did I mention that she's about two feet taller than he is? And smarter! Those folks never know what they miss.

Babes...sweetie, the guy is a ass-wipe, plain and simple and he knows it. He embraces it. He is at his height in huamnity. I'm not saying this because he is a male, females can behave in the same manner. Isn't it sad?

Ciao babes.

Men are pigs right? Can you get me her number? *giggle*

mackeydoodle said...

There are good guys & bad guys. He is obviously just a dickwad.
Think of all the friends he must be missing outon because of his asshole attitude.

The Mama Bear said...

Don't compare him to such a cool dude as Captain Caveman, but he does have a serious issue of neandrathal tendencies me thinks.

He probably doesn't have much luck with the ladies.

Raven said...

Personally, I think the guy is an ass...but...just to give him the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he's shy and only makes himself approach women he's interested in. Normal social behavior is too hard.
Possibility...yes...probable...no

g-man said...

Nope, some guys are really just one (or two) steps closer to Cro-Magnon than the rest of us fellas. OR

Maybe what he is really saying is that he has a tiny penis and strong and smart women (who will see him for the douchbag he is because he cant con them) intimidate him so he doesn't want to engage the lovely large women for fear of having them find out he has a tiny penis that they have no use for and no wit or charm that the have use for, and basically see him for the loser that he is. (albeit a muscled one)

Probably #2. :)

Kindred said...

Shallowness exists in both sexes, but, and I'm sorry guys, it does seem to be more prevalent in men.

I'm allll about the funny.

Doc said...

Does he grunt like a caveman?

Hammer said...

He's a narcissist.. total self love..aka a prick.

captain corky said...

He sounds like a meathead. 125 is very impressive!

Cooper said...

Narcissistic Gym Rat. Had this conversation with the Mrs. recently as she was working out and some guy was continually hitting on the woman next to her. She felt if she wanted that kind of aggravation she'd hit a bar. These doofuses (doofi???) are easy to spot in any gym...

Jen said...

Um. That guy is an asshat.

That's all I really have to say about that.

Em said...

Ick.

Seamus said...

That guy is just being a self-centered asshat! 'nuff said!!!

motherx said...

He sounds like a right idiot, but Id say a lot of young guys are like this...even some of the older uglier ones! seen it with my own eyes!

Hot Lemon said...

here's the better question: are ALL men like this at root, and only the "nice ones" covering up for their cro-magnon tendencies??

Dana said...

Jay. will you marry me??? OOPS! This is RLL's blog - I forgot for just a minute there ...

My guess is that they guy *knows* his limitations, and intelligent conversation is one of them. He uses what he has and hopes for the best. The sad thing? Some cute, petite woman will be proud to be by his side.

R.E.H. said...

Maybe the only form of conversation he knows goes like this:

"Hey, Sweets. Nice rack you got there. Like my pecs?"

Preposterous Ponderings said...

I think I am in love with Jay!

doggybloggy said...

sounds like mis guided teststerone because most guys would gladly have sex with any woman that would let him (the caveman way) and would hardly be picky...his testes must be the size of peanuts, gorillas have little nuts because they bully chimpanzees have big nuts because they fuck around...LOL and whats even more funny is that people know this about him...what a cultivated crock of narcisism...

Fu Manchu Dad said...

Obviously he's not a REAL man who was raised to treat women as LADIES, no matter how big and strong they are. There IS a difference between a MAN and a MALE. My daddy would have whupped me if I didn't engage people on an equal footing with at the very least, polite conversation. While some guys are all about the booty, some women are all about dating idiots like that. They are made for each other. Those of us enlightened by the grace of higher education, life experience or better yet, good old proper parenting don't go around treating one another with such disrespect. If I catch one of my boys behaving that way...the whuppin' would commence. REAL men just don't behave that way.

By the way, I discovered you through Biscuit or KK, don't remember which. May I blogroll you?

buffalodickdy said...

It takes all kinds...

Anndi said...

He must wonder where all the wooly mammoths are.
Seems like a self absorbed prick if you ask me. Men with overinflated egos and pecs just don't do a thing for me.

Hot Lemon said...

Ungh. ::grunt:: Tonga want.

BarnGoddess said...

The so called GUY at your gym is an ass!

I have more guy friends than women friends. I have never slept with my male friends (or female friends) and never would.

I KNOW they arent my buds because they want to boink me......

his spotter should develop a cramp...

mean arent I?

Jeff B said...

What a moron. Nuff said.

coffeypot said...

If she is that big and strong, she probably scares the shit out of him. And most guys will talk to most women because we want screw every woman they meet.

Lakota Princess said...

oooh likey the blog! can I come hang once in awhile? I promise to behave (sorta) and keep my language clean (sorta)... ~grin~

Southern Sage said...

to answer this is tough. Define girls I wouldn't sleep with.
I'm thinking they are somewhere around 10%!

~ said...

Heey RLL, I come to you thru crashtest comic. Have to admit your 'name' caught my attention. The husband and I had a conversation recently that I think I can apply here. (think!) I belong to a chat group that is primarily men. I am very up front that I do not 'play' with anyone but the husband. I like chatting with these (men) bc they see a 'weekend Mom' glimpse of me, and they see no flaws. This being the case, they are complimentary. And it boosts my self esteem. (<---another topic!) The husband claims the only reason they are kind to me is because they want me to send pics of (my) naughty bits. He knows and trusts that I do not. Regardless, his lack of (faith?) in his fellow man's ability to form a friendship...well, this tale seems to confirm your Caveman comment.

~Deb said...

Hmmm, maybe the underlying reason why he doesn't speak to her is because he's intimidated. Just like "some" men who are intimidated by women who make more money than they do.

Makes sense kinda-sorta.

Tequila Mockingbird said...

a lot of guys are like this. i didnt notice it until i gained like 20 lbs when i quit smoking. i've lost it all now, but still. i was like WTF.

but then some guys think just because a chick talks to them she wants to bone him. weird.

cats in the window said...

sounds like a real wanker

The Mistress of the Dark said...

I'm thinking this guy is what I'd like to call an asshat.

elizabeth said...

The fact that you could bench press me is actually a little scary... that being said -

The funny thing is, there are a lot of people like that. They all end up pretty lonely and miss out on some pretty amazing people.

Know what could be funny? Slap some estrogen patches on him and see what happens.

Seraphine said...

The guy has obvious insecurity problems. And yes, some guys are like heat seeking missiles with only targets in mind. A little chaff, and they generally fall harmlessly into self-destruction.

Aunt Jackie said...

Yeah some guys get this thing stuck in their head about "Barbie Dolls", and if a woman isn't just like that, all plastic and perfect and fake, he's too insecure himself to deal with it I guess.

There are good and bad people of every sex, religion, race, creed and orientation... The world is a twisted place.

He'll get his... lol
