Well.......... you have the opposite. Rugby, american football, Hockey...

Not that it gets any better

If that's the case, then that girl really didn't have any right to yell at him. If she wanted to be seen, she should've taken his statement as a compliment rather than an insult.
That's what's weird. The only reason would be that SH didn't say something as a compliment, but as an insult or at least that he made fun of her in some ways...

So, what did he exactly say

My guess is the girl wasn't aware that her bra was showing through her shirt and became embarrassed when SaintessHeart pointed it out.

Those cases are rare. But still funny.

Actually, me and my guy friends do agree that, the hint is way too oblique to make any sense (another girl pointed it out to us a few days later, and the other girl refused to speak to her boyfriend until then). A jealous look after that "How did you make her do that pose? She looks damn cute!" means doesn't really make any logical sense.

Btw, it is Miku's full combo pose on Project Diva. I was the one showing it off to that boyfriend while he is looking at me play Hatsune Miku no Shoshitsu.

Because girls can be complicated and since the majority doesn't have what they would need to do sports at home the way they want, they have to rely on gym/fitness/sport clubs and sometimes it can be annoying (not being able to do it the way they want. Not wanting all those strangers around them. Especially the Mister-Muscles that spends all his days there hitting on women etc.), but I didn't deny that some of them are just lazy. But not all
Yes. Way too complicated in their thinking.

I have difficulties to understand why she got angry then, because she should have been aware that people would see through it. What did you exactly say to her?
I remember saying "Eh, why is one of your bra straps is pink while the rest of your bra is blue?"

And when she made that cute fuming face, I just blurt out, "You look cute when you are angry, you know."

Next came the slap. For giving a compliment.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

As I said, the girl seems insecure about herself or the relationship. Meaning she might have a bad opinion of her body, or that her BF doesn't show enough Love (like spending too much times on videogames, or with his friends, or commenting other girls even fictional ones, etc.). But I might be wrong...

BTW, why do Miku hold a leek in some pictures?

And what did you do? Did you try to apologize and then ask what did you do wrong? (in that order).

Would have been much worse if it had gone like this...
You: Think I'm cute?
Her:....no?
You:How 'bout if I wear that keeewwwwt! bra of yours on top of my head?
As much as it saddens me to say, I've stood witness to a similar occasion, followed by three gallons of awkward and a few cans of maiden tears.

Actually, it kinda makes sense to me from one point of view. For instance, a girl who does professional swimming isn't exactly the most aesthetically pleasing type of woman to the eye. At the same time, girls who practice running professionally tend to be very skinny and even too muscular, which doesn't exactly look good on a girl either.

I think she was embarassed first, which could have passed, but then the cute anger comment made her blow up. That did sound like something a perv would say after all.

That's why too much sports or professional activities should be banned for girls-

What I want to know is what happened after that. He should have been able to make peace with her by then, but apparently failed

Like he said, he hasn't. She would always give him the cold stare in every gathering that followed. A shame.

Well I knew the two of them for quite some time. They started their relationship before I even became their friend, and to think that girl would just get jealous at Miku!

From my POV, her boyfriend actually loves her. He even went as far as to think of marrying her because she is the "cutest of all the cute stuff I own" (he collects figurines too, but she never gets jealous at them). What an idiot.

Now I have mentioned that the girl actually does not get jealous at his figurines (because she sometimes helps him collect and put together the toys when he is away in the army camp), why is she jealous at Miku's cute FC pose? This doesn't make sense.

Regarding Miku and the leek, search for Hatsune Miku Levan Polkka on youtube.

More like underrated. I would have preferred them being easier to read, because I am one who doesn't waste time when dealing with people.

She never gave me the chance to. Always avoiding me, ignoring me. I gave up on trying to apologise too.

Besides, I am not at fault! Why the heck should I apologise?

If what he said is the exact truth then her reaction seems rather........ well it's a bit too much for just "that".

Sure, Mister Zero Tact has Zero Tact, but this girl is at fault too "if" she didn't want people to see her bra.

Well I am not going to fault her for trying to look pretty or enjoying what she wear. I can be really mean most of the times, but I do, on occasion, play nice. But most of the time I just let my middle finger and expletives fly all around.

P.S I made a reply to your post in the previous page and I am too lazy to copipe to this page. Read back if you want more details, I am switching to meanie mode now because I want to sleep - 5 am here.

Maybe because she was actually annoyed from the beginning about all his figurines and all and that comment about Miku was just too much.

I'll check, thx

It's not about "why you have to do it". If you think your friendship worths to be saved, then whatever if you're at fault or not. Apologizing just gives a reason to discuss the problem.

It's Ievan Polkka, not "Levan."

I still like the Russian version best, though that may be because I heard it first on a video of Kamina slapping his ass...

It also depends on "how you said it". As Yoko said, did you sound like an amused perv?

She is first girl I met who like painting figurines, probably because she is an art major. She likes Nanoha and Fate Testarossa, as well as a scary obsession with my waifu in my current avatar, so I don't think it probably has anything related to her hating figures all along.

But I can guess why she hates Akiyama Mio from K-ON! and barbie dolls, calling them unrealistic.

According to statistics, the world current population is about 7 billion. I don't think I should waste time with one person when I have 6,999,999,999 to interact with.

Come to think of it, maybe it is because I am quoting all these facts that I constantly diss girls off. For some reason, they react adversely to fact dropping by the pound, unlike guys.

Biggest problem is that she keeps ignoring me. I don't want to risk that "Azunyan trick" (hug her and say "Good girl! Good girl!)* because she knows taekwondo.

* - I am not detached from reality. Of course I know it is never going to work IRL!

I don't think I did. Remember that I have a total lack of something called "emotional intelligence", I write a whole lot better than I speak, so I can't exactly tell whether I am offending someone or not with what I SAY.

Menaing that it's useless to rush things if you are wise and foresighted. Because good things take time to be done. It can also mean that waiting and rushing things because you are late can lead to something wrong.

In the case of SH, I said that because he said he dislikes to waste time with people he doesn't understand immediately, he rushes things.

That's what we call being a smartass. It's even worse if there's another person to tell you that you can only contact a few hundred of those billions, and far worse if you had a comeback for that...it's like a dc stepper leading to a chain reaction, after many of those I have developed an ominous feeling of foreboding every time I am about to start off such a conversation.

This pretty much falls to what I said above, I think it would be best to leave this one alone
