I utterly hate myself for being a wretched combo of BOTH Deschanel sisters: Zooey for the indie-chick colorful-ness and Emily for being, well, "Bones." (Which I doubt she is in real life, not in the sense of unintelligent but in the sense of insufferable "genius.") Don't get me wrong; they're pretty and all, but not what the American man who isn't Sheldon Cooper would probably find "attractive." Nobody likes a walking Encarta -- a "Chickipedia" who actually gets things accurate -- especially if it's a female compendium of useless knowledge or even useful knowledge. In other words, females who use words like "compendium."

Every so often I watch a little bit of Bill O'Reilly, and while I don't agree with everything he says politically, I always make sure not to miss the "Factor Word of the Day." I love words and factoids and abstract theories and trivia about popular culture, and have my own sort of unique way of wearing things. All of this, of course, doesn't exactly lend itself to a great deal of prospects on the friends or dating front. Add to the fact that I have one of those Marilu Henner photographic memories and you've got yourself a bona fide she-geek. Granted, I don't play video games and haven't since maybe Sonic or Star Fox were en vogue, but I've always felt ashamed of being someone who as a child watched Bill Nye The Science Guy and knew that the dude from Reading Rainbow was also on Star Trek TNG and played the slave hero from Roots. Really puts the "She" in Sheldon, no?

Nobody likes Lisa Simpson because Bart is the fun-loving sociopath and Homer's the hilarious idiot. And nobody likes Brian Griffin because he's an "intellectual," while Stewie is the hilarious sociopath and Peter is the fun-loving idiot. And probably nobody in real life would be able to tolerate more than 5 minutes of Zooey playing tambourine to some obscure indie-band karaoke while Emily gets into her role as Bones and drones on about astrophysics. If I could keep the physical genetics and have different mental genetics, to be Jessica Simpson instead of Lisa, you bet I would.
This is the saddest thing I've read in a while. I'm so not Sheldon and either of the Deschanel sisters would be a dream, whether they are anything like their on screen personalities or not (though I like Zooey better than Emily). I'm starting to hate this entire subforum for what it does to the self esteem of so many. I'm so glad I'm not a woman in our western society.

For what its worth. I like you. I have always hated the internet for the fact that you always say 'Where have you been'. I have never meet a girl like you in my life-mind you this is going based off of your personality. The thing with women 'like you' would be that it is hard for a guy to 'sexualize' you. Yes sex isn't everything but for a man its a HUGE part if you ever plan on going down that path with them. Another issue that may come about would be that altho we wouldn't necessarily be partners--friends sure but would you mind the dumb/dirty/low brow things that come out of ones mouth I would probably always have to filter myself around a girl like you.

And ignore the poster above me. You are NOT a sad case. You are a unique person. Trust me I AM ALSO! (More than you know) I am much like you but not quite in the sense im a male and I probably have a more subtle more refine look (in the clothing department). Oh ya and minus the tambourine, replace the indie-band with unheard of house music and were in the running's. Oh and I know nothing about astrophysics lol. Again. Altho I have no idea what you really look like you sound like an interesting kind of girl. Maybe you should try traveling more.

I am imperfect in so many ways but I am completely happy with the way I look (I am happy in general). I spend a good deal of my time volunteering and helping others so the focus of my life is not on my every body part or feature. People go out and do some good in this life instead of focusing so much on yourselves!

Me. NOPE! Over all I hate to sound cocky but I didn't come out half bad. Sure I have no ass (I have tried squats, you either have an ass or you don't sorry) but I don't need all that. I do wish I had 'better' hair in the sense I could never get away with that sexy 'bed head' look I am so envious of but giving the fact that I am above average height, good complexion (had few pimples growing up as well), and from what ive been told I have this thing call 'happy eyes'...Lost all of my 'baby weight' and with a good hair cut. ILL TAKE IT!

I had to wake up and stop looking at adult entertainment and realize most people do not look like that what so ever and be thankful for what I have. I think if most people took care of themselves more (eat better, worked out) they would me a lot happier.
And you ?

Just watch adult entertainment in HD. HAHAhA! I swear to god they are human and it...really shows in HD. Not a porn head here I was told about it and thought it was BS because WHY would you shoot THAT in HD considering what it is. It was like a medical video or something.

It would be nice if I were taller but I guess thats what heels are for.
I love the way tall people look but wouldn't want their shopping issues.


Anything else is whatever. If I don't like something or grow to dislike something I change it.

Current vanity projects are muscling up and growing my hair longer. I just want something different.
I was bored.

I think men like intelligent women, as long as they aren't more intelligent than they are.

I've been told by men, on multiple occasions, that the reason they weren't interested in me was because I was smarter than they were. One actually said 'I just don't know what to do with you'.

Now that I've moved to a more 'intelligent' area I'm hoping that won't be an issue anymore.

Was this guy heterosexual?

I can tell you, Jet, many men who are secure in what they have to offer don't care how intelligent a woman is. They welcome it.

I lived there for four years. I can tell you that it is indeed full of very, very intelligent women. I don't know if they were smarter than me or not, but I can tell you that I found their intelligence very alluring.

Yes, he was heterosexual. We went on a few dates a while back and he just disappeared on me. We met up much later at a local bar and started chatting and he told me he was planning on breaking up with his girlfriend he'd bee seeing (which is why he disappeared on me) and said he'd love to date me again, but wasn't sure he could date a woman who was smarter than him. I guess repairing the transfer case on his truck that he completely screwed up didn't impress him as much as I thought it would

I told him he could kindly go eff himself and went back to my friends.

Anonymity can get the mind going. You went from a man to a cross dresser then a woman in a matter of moments.
Are you a man who cross dresses ? If so just how tall are you ?

I hate my appearance.

Hopefully I'll get it right in the next life.
