you want my opinion? EASE BACK A LITTLE! As a 21-year-old-guy with a sense of humour so abrasive it has been known to clean glass at twenty paces
, I know that I'd enjoy hanging out with someone with your vicious humour. However, it would probably never progress as far as a close friendship. Why? Because we all have to learn to rein it in a bit.
For example, I have a 23-year-old friend who is great craic because of her acid tongue. The problem is she tends to push it too far, like earlier this week when she thought it'd be funny to try and sabotage my attempts at forming a relationship (long story, probably not worth retelling). This kind of behaviour just annoys people.
Also, your reputation can preceed you. One girl isn't talking to me (how desperately childish...) because she misinterpreted an innocent crack I made in front of her last week as being about an embarrassing incident in her past. She misinterpreted it due to a combination of her own paranioa and my known tendancy to be caustic.
On the other hand, the girl I'm interested in thinks I'm 'witty', so a little abrasiveness can go a long way!
On another note, what stuck me about your post was that you seem to be put off by the actual mechanics
of inter-gender relations. Have you ever actually been attracted to a guy? Have you ever been attracted to anyone
? (unattainable celebrities don't count!)
