FML - The follow-up

Today, the guy I was on a date with jokingly challenged me to an arm wrestle. I won. He left. FML

disataerkatie Say more :
I wish I had longer arms. Possibly the best part is that he is an entire foot taller than I am...

You aren't missing out on much -- he's not a man. And I'm not talking about arm strength. If he can't admit that a woman could be better than him at something, he has so many insecurities that your relationship would have been pathetic.

@29, I wouldn't mind if my Girlfriend was more athletic than me as long as she didnt hold it against me. I guess some people still need to feel "manly" at all costs. Edit* Username = disaster*?

#56, It's actually an advantage to have shorter forearms - with greater distances from the elbow, less of a force is needed to move the arm by the same amount, so people with longer arms are (theoretically) more easily beaten :)

But 109, should we really feel that bad for someone who's ego is that fragile? If he thinks being "beaten by a girl" is that bad of a thing or that embarrassing, then he's an ass to begin with. A real man (as in a self-confident man) would've laughed it off and asked how she got to strong.

#111 - I globally agree with you, and the guy might just be too proud for no reason. But nowadays people have complexes of all kind. I feel sorry for him too. I like to see how people can be so harsh with other on the internet. Like "oh, he left? Well he is not worth it" like everybody was perfect. It's his manly side that was defeated there. Obvisouly he overreacts. But that does not make him a bad person. It would be like a guy actually teaching a girl how to make up/choose bras or take care of her hair (shitty examples, my bad). You can react different ways: be attracted, amazed, think the other one is strange (she is manly/he his feminin) or take it for yourself and consider you are not worth it...

This guy got serious issues!! One of my gf spots me when we work out. She's a body builder, and she competes! Nothing better than a strong woman! Tell him man up or go lift.

#8 I don't know in which world you live in, but as far as I can see, insecurities are everywhere. Many people blame themselves for being too fat, ugly, small, intelectually limited, professionally unreliable, unable to socialize, not funny enough, boring, etc... And thing is, they have these insecurities because people (like you) can't accept them, which make the problem bigger even. It is just like being at school to make fun of the weaks and see how there confidence falls down. I hope for your friends and relatives that you guys (agreeing with #8) are not this intransigeant IRL. Because if you are, and especially with your kids, I would be curious to see what you would with them once you realize they have insecurities you hate so much.

I can understand why a guy would feel embarrassed and less manly over that but leaving after is rude, he could have just sucked it up and been a real man.

It also could have backfired if OP was a sore loser. Girls can get competitive too! And it's not our ego that gets wounded but our feelings. Pretty risky date maneuver.
