Hey guys, I'd like to seek some opinions on an idea I have to take this girl out that I'm interested in. First a little back story: Both she and I are college freshmen and we have the same biology…Continue

"Yet another great discussion on AOM!   @ Zack-I get what you are saying.  When I was in college, I had hoped to meet a certain type of person--mature, knowledge seeking, thoughtful--and while I did meet a few of those types, most of the…"

Magnus replied to Zach Welch's discussion Not interested in making male friends
"I did much enjoy reading your post, Zach. I recognise the weird and annoying tension that often occurs when several males are spending time together with 'fresh meat'. In my case, it usually leads to misanthropy: the males needlessly…"

"I can see why so many people are blaming Zach here.  But I work at a university and the current generation of college students seem to be very much as he's described.  Its probably not a majority, but many of them come to school…"

"I agree that talking to people and getting to know them is very important to building a relationship.  But I think what's more important is sharing experiences.  Old friendships are strong because you went through things…"

Penelope replied to Zach Welch's discussion Not interested in making male friends
"tl; dr only skimmed North Americans have an unusual attitude towards friendship when you look worldwide and over time. We have this "the more, the merrier" attitude and assume that you can be good friends with a group of people. A story to…"

"Will has it about right. I think the most telling line in the entire post was "Many are pretentious, self absorbed, and shockingly immature." Then following he writes how he is better than everyone"

Craig replied to Zach Welch's discussion Not interested in making male friends
"Clearly there are some very large personal issues here if running people over with your car is reasonable. Wow.... I think if your interests are "books" then pursue friendships with bookish people. Even super nerds have male friendships…"

Zach Welch replied to Chrissie O'Bryan's discussion What do guys want???
"Honesty is really important. I can't tell you how many relationships, whether romantic or friendly, end because someone finds out about a lie. So yeah, be honest about stuff.   Guys show their interest in girls in different ways and it…"

Zach Welch replied to Zach Welch's discussion Not interested in making male friends
"This is fun. And yes, it just so happens that most guys aren't interested in things that I'm interested in, like books for instance (which is incredibly sad), and that's why I find it difficult to relate to them. Wow, I can't…"

Chuck Knight replied to Zach Welch's discussion Not interested in making male friends
"It's fun when you figure it out for yourself, isn't it?   You're not avoiding male friends...you just seek out a certain type of person, and that combination of traits skews towards the females you know.   Make an effort to…"

Zach Welch replied to Zach Welch's discussion Not interested in making male friends
"The assertion that there are many people in college that perhaps shouldn't be there is indeed true, in my experience for sure. And that connects to my first point about having more female friends here. Nearly all of the girls that I've…"

Zach Welch replied to Zach Welch's discussion Not interested in making male friends
"I suppose I'd have to think a while about me having such a view about male friendship. It could be that I've simply taken my male friendships for granted which has caused me to not see as much value in them as I should. I realize this and…"

Chuck Knight replied to Zach Welch's discussion Not interested in making male friends
"In plain English, most of the people in college are not there to attend college.   College has become less an institution of learning...and more a form of grown-up day care.   The people where I attended behaved like 9 year old children,…"

"So I'm not alone in having met some pretty sorry people in college, that's a relief really. Would you have any insight as to why its such a common observance? Could it be that college students are generally young and haven't…"
