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

Well, if that's his reaction to a playful arm wrestling match, then it's better to just shrug and look for a better guy; preferably one who's not a sore loser. .
I'm with you #77 - anybody else think that maybe he was just reapply embarrassed about it? maybe that's why he left bc he was ashamed of himself and thought he made an ass out of himself bc he DIDN'T feel like a man after such a loss. maybe he felt he couldn't look her in the eye or stick around in fear of her rubbing it in her face. I'm just sayin. definitely not a YDI - it's a total FYL bc he should have just swallowed his pride and toughed it out to see where things went. but obviously his pride was more important than giving this badass babe a chance which sucks for OP. hopefully your next date victim isn't as insecure OP
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...
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.
#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.
He obviously thought you'd be impressed when he beat you. Didn't go quite to plan...
Haha who challenges a girl to an arm wrestle on a date anyway?
