Last night I overheard a conversation between 2 middle aged men talking about how uninteresting they feel most women are. One of the guys sounded like he was sorta joking, but the other guy was dead serious. He went on about how if you took sex out of the equation he wouldn't talk to any woman but his mother. Obviously this guy was bitter about something, but this isn't the first time I've heard a guy say that exact line. I can even say that several of my friends say that communicating with their wives about anything that interests them is like pulling teeth. If so many men feel like this, than you would have to think that lots of women find men incredibly uninteresting too.

Do you find the opposite sex less interesting than your own sex?

No, of course not. If anything, I might actually have a preference for the opposite sex. I myself am currently a biological male, but I honestly wouldn't mind eventually getting a sex change and functioning as a female part-time (but not all of the time; I still want to have a female body all of the time, though). In addition, I find female tastes in things such as fashion to be great--I mean, wearing a black suit and a tie sometimes is nice, but sometimes it's also just as nice to put on a dress, some lipstick, some boots, earrings, and/or et cetera.

Hopefully I understood your question here correctly.

My question is in regards to personal interests and communication.
I would say that if you find things like fashion interesting, than you obviously would find women interesting; however, you don't fit into the norm as well. I'm more referring to strait men and women. I'm sure my flamboyantly gay brother in-law and his BF would be bored to death talking about bass fishing or college football with me.

I don't see any difference along a clear gender line. Some people are interesting and some are not.

I don't think a woman whose only interest is on-line shopping and the latest soap opera is much fun to hang out with. But I don't like spending time with a man who can only talk about his golf game and nothing else, either.

Someone who likes shopping might find that woman a great companion, and of course, another golfer might love to be buddies with the golf guy.

The entire opposite sex uninteresting? I suspect that there are some sort of personality flaws in people who believe that.

Dammit! The title of your thread is the exact opposite of the question in your poll! I meant to post no, but posted yes.

People! Please proofread!

As long as we are on this topic, maybe the men here would like to explain to me why some men marry women that they think are boring and that they can't stand to try to talk with. That seems such an odd choice for a spouse.

I am currently a straight (or perhaps a 99% straight) biological male, though.

This!! I see and hear about this all the time, but you have to question why the woman would say yes to a man who they couldn't talk to too.

maybe those folks marry more for looks-attraction and unfortunately that stuff wears off.
