I was in a similar situation as you. I think that high school wants to play some kind of mind warp on most people. Cliques are the main points of it, when it should be learning and such. That is restricted and people become segregated, some worse than others. People in high school are just...not nice. My solution was to get out early. Yes...heh. The best thing is to be patient and wait it out, though. People are going to be self centered and close minded for the rest of their lives. You obviously have some motivation and love for something...you've taken the time to learn a programming language. :-p

Don't let people get you down in high school. They aren't worth it, and a lot of the time their jokes backfire on them. Ah yes...the geekiest geek at my school was on prom court. It was a good day.

Anyways, getting off the topic. People suck. There are a ton of people that you can relate to out there, unfortunatly, nice and caring people seem to be the minority.

From THE DEVIL'S DICTIONARY ((C)1911 Released April 15 1993) [devils]:

LOVE, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage or by removal of the patient from the influences under which he incurred the disorder. This disease, like _caries_ and many other ailments, is prevalent only among civilized races living under artificial conditions; barbarous nations breathing pure air and eating simple food enjoy immunity from its ravages. It is sometimes fatal, but more frequently to the physician than to the patient.

Love? What is love? It is that special feeling you get when you can hang out with someone and be yourself and not feel self concious about anything. And totally wanting to attack that person and devour them with your kisses. Ok, perhaps, that is more like rape. Well, I'm a girl and we can get away with stuff like that.

I want a geek...they are awesomely special. I like everything about your type. So smart, kind, funny, generous, bizarre yet unique, some shy, most not realizing how cute they really are. Behind the Clark Kent exterior, lies a gorgeous Superman in all of you.

You think girls are tough, hell, you have no clue what we want. It is NOT the gorgeous type...woman like that are stupid and suck. Screw Them (sure I know you would) what I mean is..they are not worthy of you guys. There are a lot of dumb woman with big breasts but no brains. Trust me after that night, by the morning after...you just sit there bored at their stupidity. Not all woman that are beautiful are dumb. Of course not, I would consider myself cute and pretty smart but that is just an opinion. Some are attracted to me, some aren't. Thats life and that is always the case, no matter what you look like. TV is not the real world. Don't try to be what you aren't, be happy with what you are and I promise you, you will get plenty of sex and love because there are plenty of woman that desire the same things as you.

Ok, I just wrote too much here. I better stop now. Say hi if you want.

--------------------
Geeks are the most special creation ever made. So overlooked, so under-appreciated, so unloved and yet so amazing, incredible, wonderful, smart and sweet.

Love ain't marriage.
Love ain't sex.
Love isn't mood rings.

Love is utterly impractical. Cherish it.

I'm going to get trashed for this one, but here goes...

I personally am of the unpopular opinion that men and women aren't all that different. It mostly seems to be a difference of scale-- men are encouraged to like big things (cars, sports arenas, war) and women are encouraged to like littler things (shoes, kids, rumors). Now that we have reliable birth control and are allowed to own property, biology is no longer destiny. [Wink] Both genders would like the same things if they were allowed to. I should know; I have guns.

I won't give you a big thing on love, since I don't consider myself to be an expert, but I do have a couple things to help you understand other people. Try studying communications instead of philosophy (we won't go into my opinion of Socrates), and study sign language to improve your grasp of body language (ASL, not SEE, please).

If you really are manic-depressive, get help. There are decent meds for it that won't make you sick, and may help with your self-loathing. Or you could just try doing something to be proud of. You can't have high self-esteem until you have something to hook it to.

As to Christianity, all that "loving god" imagery is fairly recent. If you read much of the Bible, it is full of killing and vengence. And dietary guidelines, for some reason. Exodus 34:26 "Do not cook a young goat in its mother's milk."

OK, I guess I have offended enough people for one post.

As soon as I read this topic name, I got that damned "what is love?" song stuck in my head. You know, the one featured in "A Night at the Roxbury" with Will Ferrill and Chris Kattan.

I will have to disagree with the last post. I think men and women are very different.

Men operate on logic.
Women operate on emotion.

Most of the time, logic and emotion share a common goal/belief. Other times, they're complete opposites. I'm not saying that men possess no emotional traits, and women possess no logic, but I believe, for the most part, that's how it goes.

But I'll have to also agree with one of the previous posts. Love is looking at someone, and realising you are very interested in spending the rest of your life with them. Realising that you don't have to pretend, lie, or act different from your real self around them to be accepted. Love is feeling comfort in their very presence.

That's all I have to say about that.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!! Good one, Newfie!! I have 3 brothers, and I have yet to see them operate by logic! Not to mention my ex-husband, several friends' husbands, and even the genius-level-IQ guys I have known. Just because your system of making decisions makes sense to you, and not to us (and vice versa), doesn't mean that either gender is or is not logical. In fact, I would go with NEITHER gender being logical, any more than any other creature.

...I wonder if anyone has ever researched gender differences in decision-making processes of lab rats?...

Heh...I'll still never forget Nemo's response in a similar thread years ago, when I first signed on:

love leaves you bleeding at the side of the road (not sure exactly, but that's close)

I tended to agree with her, but what a difference 2 years makes. Now I'd say it's....magic. [Happytears]

After careful study of myself and my colleagues, all I can say is female lab rats tend to focus a little bit more on how people are going to feel about the situation, but just a little bit.

However, we lab rats aren't exactly normal people so any data that comes from studying us should be taken with a grain of salt. Unless your interested in seeing what happens when you throw a bunch of nerd together and let them nerd away into oblivion. [Razz]
