So women always tell me that I'm creepy or that I put them off. This even occurs with women whom I have only platonic interests in. It really frustrates and depresses me, and I haven't been able to figure out what I'm doing wrong or what the deal is. Sometimes I think that if I ever get to the point where it just hurts too bad and I don't want to live anymore, instead of just blowing my brains out, I'll spend the rest of my life hunting down and killing human traffickers and sex predators. That way, all the women of the world can say what they want about me, but I gave my life to saving people who were having their lives ruined by the real creeps.

And that was what was going through my head today. I love that I'm not very good at photography, because my pictures often turn out totally different than what I'm going for, and yet they still look kind of interesting.

That's too bad, man. Everything in this picture makes perfect sense and looks like it was made by someone who isn't batshit insane at all.

dude...that was the single weirdest and most twisted caption I've ever read. It was weird and strange and crazy an I don't know what to say..but It at least kind of explains the photo. Glad you think about doing something good for the ungrateful women.

@chuckdamage dude, I have some friends that feel like you do and it tears them up. I also have a friend that got married to a girl that 'got him'. There is someone out there for you that will understand you and not be put off. Stay the course. Fuck the rest of them!

Also, loving this shot. I also love your general 'quirkiness'. Keep being yourself!

Yeah, the way the world works with that kind of stuff blows my mind. I'm almost 26 years old and I've never dated a guy before. I've gotten creepy, crazy, & most often this "you have to love yourself before someone else will love you". I'm constantly being accused of not liking myself or being self-deprecating which isn't true so much as.......I have a lot of social anxiety. The other thing is that men have never liked me; in my lifetime, two guys have liked me. One was this child-like Mormon kid from my hometown and he was nice but had serious issues. The other was a friend more than 10 years older than me who I recently quit talking to because he would consistently say hurtful things to me. The thing about that guy was that even though he has SERIOUS problems, women love him. Like, the dude is nuts.......but he's also cute. Some hot hipster girl moved from Seattle to the east coast to marry him on a whim and 2 and a half years later, they got divorced. He had a line of girls waiting to date him when he was done with the marriage.

It also comes up time and again; women can be absolutely batshit crazy but men will still love them. Men like crazy, I think. And men definitely like hot. And boobs. And most men aren't into fat, either. Or, you know, girls with gender issues that adore beards and internet beard contests.

I started liking girls in October which is strange because in the past I've had several nice females with crushes on me but I wasn't interested. Good timing for a sexuality change, though; I'm now seeing a super nice girl. And hey, she's not crazy, either.

So I'm not sure what the point of the story is but I think it's that nothing related to love or crushes makes any fucking sense at all. And let's not sugar coat things -- women may never actually like you. Men may never actually like me. There is a very real possibility that I will spend the rest of my life alone because I still don't know if I'm even comfortable being with a lady.

My advice for you is to throw yourself into something like work or school where you'll be able to meet people on a regular basis. I haven't whole-heartedly tried the internet dating thing because I know too many people in the area and I suck with humility but maybe try that and also have a friend help you edit your profile on whatever site you try. If all else fails, you should move to Philadelphia. The women there are kind of nuts but they like beards a lot.

@katie, that had to be the most meaningful and heartfelt comment ever given in the history of Whiskerino (that I've read at least). It's reasons like this why I feel it was so fitting that @thatguy clamebuted you last Friday. You're a great part of this community.

Don't give up. I have relatives who were single until their 40s when they finally met the love of their life. If women aren't working out for you right now, put that interest and drive into something more productive.

I went to an all boys high school. I did not really learn how to talk to girls/women until I worked at a western wear store where all the other people there were pretty much girls or women. It helped me tremendously to understand not just their language but the kind of language and message I should be sending out to the world as well.

Lastly, for my own amusement mostly, I think you should hit on @katie while intoxicated at the throwdown ;-)

chuck, i don't think of you as weird or creepy, but more unusual and unique, both of which are good qualities. the way i look at it is there are millions upon millions of people that listen to top 40 radio, eat at chain restaurants, and watch the major studio blockbuster movies, which are all safe and easy choices. now there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, but you're a person who is outside that norm, your style and tastes are more uncommon. uncommon doesn't mean alone though, and there are others out there that will share your interests, and can relate to you in your thoughts and opinions.

the above comments give some pretty good advice. to really likes someone means getting to know them, and often that can be seeing the other person regularly, be it at work or school, or as part of social or hobby related gatherings. i think you seem like a cool guy with a good sense of humor. be kind, laugh (but not at others' expense), respect the interests and values of others, and be yourself. if you can live that way, truthfully and honestly, than hopefully at some point you will cross paths with a girl who sees all that in you, and likes you for those reasons. don't lose heart chuck.
