(quote) Joan-529855 said: Tim, I agree. It does remind me of a junior high dance with the girls on the opposite side of the room from the boys, waiting patiently for the boys to ask them to dance. As was pointed out earlier, there are far more posts in the women's only forum than the men's only forum, so I would equate that to the girls being tired of waiting for the boys to ask them to dance, so the "girls" are dancing with each other and are having a blast!! THANKS for the "visual".
And I compare it to a vast shoe warehouse with thousands upon thousands of boxes of shoes, all in nearly identical plain brown wrappers without a size or style marked on them. I enter and get exasperated because finding the size and style I need is nearly impossible, while the salesman accuses me of being unreasonable because I don't have the patience to open box after unlabelled box trying to find the size and style I need. The salesman also starts trying to convince me that size and style don't matter and that I am unreasonable for having any preference at all about what kind of shoes I want to buy, because after all, they're all so wonderful, and my feet will grow into them. If a man walked into a room with thousands of apparently identical ladies (a la Harry Mudd) who could fault the poor soul for not knowing which one to ask to dance?
