Curve game meme hookup ghosting hookup gif

I am Aleksandr, the very last knitter. Big community funding update! September 6, 7: You know a guy for a while. You hang out with him. You do fun things with him—play video games, watch movies, go hiking, go to concerts.

You invite him to your parties. You listen to his problems. You do all this because you think he wants to be your friend. And then if you turn him down, he may never speak to you again. This has happened to me time after time: And then he asks me on a date. Maybe things "Curve game meme hookup ghosting hookup gif" different these days, but back in the '90s when Curve game meme hookup ghosting hookup gif friends and I were dating, this save, perhaps "You listen to his problems" is pretty much exactly how virtually everyone I knew hooked up with people.

It was either that or getting wasted at a party or bar and rolling the dice. Am I doing this satire thing right? This problem is closely linked to advanced stages of terminal fedora disease. Plenty of people meet people as friends and then later date them, I doubt anyone has a problem with that.

What people have a problem with is the internet culture of raging at being "friendzoned. Ah, that makes sense. In the war between reading about sexism and closing my office door to coo "who's a good otter, who's a good little otter" at a computer screen, it seems like the otters won.

The piece says more than it intends. I don't get the point of this satire. Is it to take the piss out of guys who complain about the friend zone?

Is it to take the piss out of the guys that make their move, fail and then move on? Is it just bitching about how guys have trouble having female friendships? I get what it's satirizing, but not what point it's trying to make.

As I read it, paragraphs are not really satire. They are genuinely complaining about the fact that guys form friendships with women and then abandon them when there's no romantic "payoff. That made me laugh. I'm not sure there is a point in this sort of sense that it is trying to make beyond perhaps taking the piss out of the guys that make their move, fail and then DON'T move on; but things can just be elegant and interesting while turning a really fucked up concept on its head in a way that illuminates it without solving feminism forever.

Yeah but turning something that's already stupid "nice" guys on its head is just making it even stupider. I still don't get it.
