    Sadly yes. I was dating a guy 4 years ago who was a bit older than me and about a month into dating he pulls this whole spiel on me about how women make it hard for guys to be intimate and how he got lead on in school. Basically ranting at me as if I had done it and I'm just sitting there like: I planned to lay you but you had to go be a dork.

    Really emotional/tempertanrum clingy type. Not sure what leads to this. Seems like a growing problem tho. The guy could fuck up morning coffee with his past dwelling attitude.

    Probably one of the worst and most insufferable people I've ever met was this ~30 year old guy who would occasionally hang out at a bar I frequented in college and, among other things, get really drunk and brag about all the "totally fucked up stuff" he saw browsing 4chan 10+ years ago.

    It's kinda funny when you see some dudes in their 20s pull the whole "I'm a misogynist because a girlfriend cheated on me when we were both 16" schtick with a straight face as if they expect people to take them seriously.

    For the record I've been cheated on and it felt like shit but I never cheated myself.

    I was cheated on by an ex-girlfriend and I still don't hate women. I will never understand idiots like that.

    I’ve been cheated on, and unfortunately I’ve been the person that people cheat with (I didn’t know they were).

    Both feel shitty. I think people who try to justify it with “BECUZ SHE CHEET REEE WOMAN BADZ” have underlying fucking issues that never got addressed.

    I feel fucking lonely and friendless, but I don’t take it out on an entire half of the population. I take it out on myself and alienate people that way.

    I think my worst experiences with a partner were the woman who tried to claim attempted rape and murder (yeah, I got #MeToo’d), and the boyfriend who used to cry whenever I told him something like “hey hon can you stop crying after we have sex it makes me self conscious”.

    The moral is that all people suck, the trick is finding the one or multiple that suck the least and make you feel accepted and cared for.

    The true reddit response is, "I hate all people equally *Tips Fedora* (get it because we are on a text based website so I have to type my actions for people to know them XD)."

    I hate everyone, but not equally.

    South Indian men are insufferable. The women are fine.

    Well, us guys kind of have to have someone to lay out our problems to. Men are supposed to be tough and not spill the beans in front his friends. I suppose that guy had been having a bad couple of days and he decided that you were trustworthy and cared about what he had to say. Its sort of like a stress relief.

    Unfortunately that sort of hang on to the past personality is very common and that is certainly not gonna be the last person you will find with that... problem???

    I know because I am that exact same personality, my dad is that personality, my mom is that personality, hell many people I know have it.

    Also do not assume he was being a dork, he very well could just be a man with morals trying to stick it in a world thats descending into a pile of shit.

    However there is of course a fine line between confiding information or personal misgivings and just being plain emotional.

    I wasnt there, so dont take everything I say completely seriously. This is just food for thought.

    (I know because I am this kind of person).

    All memes should be banned, once and for all.
    That, and computer games. Enough is enough.

    Someone with motivation should found a No Mutants Allowed subreddit. The we could sperg on Reddit about Reddit, just like those assclowns at https://old.reddit.com/r/4chan/. And they should make it a closed group to be really cool.
