I can't give you a ballpark number because I'm not average.
Go ahead. Give an estimate given the criteria.

Do you mind telling me how many times you've been rejected by women (and age)? If you don't feel like sharing with the class, you can PM me.
I have absolutely no idea. How or why would I keep count of this? That's like knowing how many times I've stubbed my toe, or eaten meatloaf, or bought a frisbee. Are you this obsessed with counting all of life's mundane details, or just this one?

Average? Not enough.

Put me down for 41. What's the prize for the closest guess?

I couldn't tell you. I've haven't been completely single since I was 17 - although my college boyfriend and I did have an open relationship for awhile. I'm not sure that my number of rejections would mean anything since the majority of the time - I was in a relationship and therefore, had to turn down people who asked me out. Plus, I wouldn't say that I'm average and I'm very outgoing. I also used to come into contact with a lot of people on a daily basis.

Interesting.

So, you approach women and get shot down very often?

I think all those numbers are low actually.
Creepy? definitely not, I don't think this is a creepy topic IMO, but it is fairly strange. Yes, I've heard stranger topics discussed among other men, even when I'm at work I become part of some really strange topics as working 12 hour shifts in rooms that are as hot as 200 degrees all day will make your mind think of some crazy sh*t.

And those numbers may very well be low, but they are just guesses, so you'll never actually have an idea.

And this topic should me centered more towards women.

No.

I meant guess what an average woman's # would be. Also, good one. If you have a boyfriend, then it doesn't count.

No...But I also don't buy frisbees, eat meatloaf, or stub my toe very often. It's not a matter of frequency, it's a matter of significance. I don't keep count of things that don't matter very much.
