How come I never noticed this?
I just looked over my "Friends Of" list and realized that every one of them is FEMALE. Every last one!

Well, OK except for AgentXS, but well, he's... you know... English.

But aside from him, ALL WOMEN. I don't understand... not that I'm complaining either. You don't suppose my list of interests scared off all the men?

I'm not sure what this says about you, or if it says anything at all, who cares?

People come into your life at the alloted time and leave when their job is done.

Maybe you just need the female psyche at the moment.

Re: Friends

To someone who only knew the figures and not the individuals it might appear to mean I ought not have difficulty getting a date.

It's just something I noticed, just like I noticed that the only two people to reply to my post are British. With detailed questionaires, I might be able to find you two have even more in common, but I have no time for that now.

Re: Friends

Friended by two Brits no less!

One big thing we don't have in common is location.

Re: Friends

Yeah well, maybe it is deeper than that. I mean maybe you will both end up in the same place. Could be. Have you considered getting yourself deported?

Just being helpful!

Re: Friends

The possibility of being deported has crossed my mind, but only when I try to smuggled the greatly misunderstood Marmite product into the country. Some Americans have told me it should be declared an illegal substance and might be considered a terrorist weapon of mass taste-bud destruction.

If I were to be deported, I would do my best to not have the British Isles as my end-point. The right-wing "new" Labour party is too depressing.

I am certain you mean this as a compliment, I'm just not sure if it's a compliment for me, or for you. Not many Americans can claim that they've been friended by a Brit.

By the way, my PDA is on it's way, yay!

Women are more tolerant for the most part.

and willing to be on more list on the second part.

I don't think it's your list of intrest. I mean, lets be honest, there's just way more females that use this thing than males. Infact, i don't know any males that use Livejournal. That is of course not including the ones I've met on it.

I think it just means you're a ladies-man. ^.^ I wouldn't sweat it tho, guys might not want to talk to someone as intelligent as you- they might feel threatened. Besides, women are alot easier to talk to about certain things; so i've noticed anyway.

You are making me laugh!

Ladies man? Really?? I should make you my spokesman, er spokeswoman.. person. argh. Someone please tell the ladies this.

If I combine all the feedback I've received with my own observations I come up with a solution. I'll buy there are more women than men on LJ to begin with and that of the men who are here, at least one third are here "with" their SO's and wives. The remaining two thirds appears to consist of about 20% really funny interesting men like AgentXS and 80% clueless horny guys either looking for a date or a clue.

In comparison to most of the men here I'm more like a bachelor, and despite my occasional ill-fated relationship (current one hopefuly excluded), I appear more "available" and far less clueless, while still being interesting.

This is quite an awakening for me. All along I kept thinking I was merely "making friends" here, when in fact I may be gaining "groupies". Or, maybe not. See I know at least half the women who have friended me are in committed relationships, and the other half are not less than half a nation away or underage... so that leaves the remaining possibility that I am merely entertaining to watch. Yeah that has to be it.
