RE Types: I think it's flawed to say that there are different types of people out there. You can't discretize humanity as a whole into chunks. Each person is individual and all that.

However, when someone says they're not "his type", this is still a valid statement. I say it quite often myself. Basically, we all prefer different things in the people we date. Be it appearance or personality. In a sense, these preferences are our "type".

I'll use the "type" phrase when pertaining to guys as well as girls. "Your type of person" is the set of people you tend to get along with -> have chemistry with. There are some people who you naturally get along better with then others, and generally you're good at recognising, though it's often difficult to precisely define it. It also bears mentioning that it's much easier to define who isn't your type then who is. So I find it very difficult to be attracted to girls who mostly talk about soaps and going out, or "big" women.

When referring to dates appearance tends to get thrown into the mix. Generally speaking I'd say most people, when they talk about the people they've dated/been attracted too, will find all their previous partners share stuff in common. It can kinda get creepy when you think about it. For instance all the people I've ever been seriously attracted to had straight dark hair, fine featured,petite and usually wore glasses and a bit eccentric. This isn't my type per se. I've also been attracted to people who did not strictly meet this description. I'd say the only thing that is particularly hard and fast is what size you like. I'll never go for women who are physically large (and I don't just mean fat), and I always prefer em petite. I know guys though who do very much like them big. It's a preference thing.

Re Smoking: I didn't mean to cause the thread to derail on a tangent. I don't really care much about the intracacies of smoking. I just dislike the smell. Cigarette smoke is nasty stuff. Smokers don't realise it because they're exposed to it so often. I could care less about the rest, if you want to harm your health it's your choice, but don't expect us to put up with the smell...

Heh, my bad. I admit to not being a fan of smoking. Watching your grandmother slowly dying because in her life she was both a smoker and a drinker wasn't a fun experience. Sorry about that.

Now that I think about it, maybe I was also a bit over the line with some replies, in the sense that I was not considerate about personal experiences of others. My bad.

Still logically thinking smoking itself, especially second hand, is the least of one's health concerns, compared to pollution from vehicles' exhausted, and even worse carbon-burning power plants. There is also the health background, my mother's father was a heavy smoker till his death at 89 from heart attack, while my father is still live-and-genki at 60, unfortunately for me

Like Syn's girlfriend, I just get agitated with non-smoking campaigners slogans, because there is an increasing oppression based on half-truths also in Europe. I am not saying that it is a good habit, but what I am saying is that discriminating and oppressing people for whatever reason is wrong.

PS: Back to the skin colour example, it is possible to change it, possibly easier than quitting smoking

False. The first thing I argued against was an actually the straw man fallacy. Fallacies are always wrong, so you can't really argue for it by turning it into something.

http://www.nizkor.org/features/fallacies/straw-man.html

Although turning a bad habit into a racist issue was very compelling... you also committed a fallacy called weak analogy.

Well, I do call that shallow too.
Reasons?

I dated a vegetarian and the smell of her excrement was horrendous, should I stop considering dating vegetarians or just not use the toilet till the ventilation does the trick
Again, weak analogy. I would be highly concerned with you if you went out of your way to smell your girlfriends poop, which I'm assuming you don't. The smell of a smoker is near constant and inescapable.

Also, being a vegetarian is generally considered healthy. The point I made which you seemed to have ignored is that smoking is..dun dun dun...bad for you! I know, it's crazy. And when someone smokes, they send the message to others that they don't care enough about themselves and their own health to stop smoking, so why would someone assume that they would be fit to care deeply about another person? I'm not saying that all smokers are heartless beasts. But I am saying, it sends a negative message to others, and if someone doesn't want to date you because if that habit, it's not shallow, it's rational.

I personally use the phrase "not my type" when someone who is handsome and/or has a desirable character, but nevertheless isn't attractive to me as a potential lover.
So just nice in theory, but ... not interested. However, it's definitely both looks and personality for me.

I do have preferences of course. Like: I don't like guys with long hair. So most of the time I'll say that a long haired guy is "not my type". But there are some that look good with it after all .. it really depends. I always decide from person to person

Can anyone give me a decent romance chat room? All I get are people who only can say "ok" and "lol". Maybe somewhere people can hold an intilligent conversation...

I haven't really done the whole chatting thing before, and all my efforts are hitting walls. Is IRC a good place to go? What servers?

Intelligent conversation and chat room should not be in the same sentence.

I agree, up until the point where she started blaming me for stuff I never did, and then keying my truck, etc.

I've gathered this thus far :P

I suppose I haven't missed much by avoiding chat...

I regularly chat with friends over Google chat, and it's great. But I've tried chatting with strangers several times over the years and I've never had much success. It's entirely possible I'm in the wrong rooms though...

The fact that you may encounter worse air pollutants in your life doesn't overshadow the harmful effects of smoking or breathing in second-hand smoke. It's all additive. The only difference is that, short of picking up and moving (or wearing some sort of filter mask), you have no control over the industrial air pollution that you're breathing. You have a choice about smoking. People who breath it second-hand have a bit less of a choice, but can try to evade it: whenever my wife and I walk by a smoker, we hold our breath; whenever we're walking behind someone who is smoking, we speed up and pass them so that we're not in their smoke trail. As you say, our lungs are getting hit with enough issues from the emissions and chemicals that we breathe in every day - why add any more to it than we have to?

A number of the anime fansub channels on IRC are sort of romance channels... bastions of perverted jokes and remarks that would probably be considered sexual harassment if they were spoken out loud.

Out of curiosity, what do you want out of a romance chat room?

Heh, mine never blamed me for anything for the 1.5 years I dated her. You know they're a keeper when they come out of the ward not once, but twice.

Went for a night of drinking. Quite intoxicated at the moment. Going back to what was said about bars earlier...it's quite amazing the kind of people you run into that are clearly talking out of their ass. I was confronted with this one woman who wanted to talk to be about the "black cock" and I was just like (oh my goodness get me out of here) and she kept ranting and ranting. Luckily the bar closed. Even when I get head deep in having too much to drink, I can take pride in the fact that I won't say something stupid and come off as a...well...belligerent drunk. I usually keep quiet. I just want to be left alone and drink my beer! Yes I could drink at home, but I like to experiment and take a shot here or there of whatever. Depending on what's available of course.

No particular reason. I'm just interested in experiencing new things, and I've never really checked out rooms before. Also, I'd like to try out talking to women a bit more, even if it is just online. But I'm thinking now it might be better to go for an "interest" room and meet women incidentally. Though part of the problem is that most of my interests are male dominated so...

Until she murders all your female friends in a fit of insane jealous rage and permanently chains you to the bed so you can't ever escape...

You do know when they say yandere means "crazy in love," they're heavily understating the matter. I think you should have your head examined if you think dating someone like the female lead of Mirai Nikki is a good idea.
