What was that discussion in that other thread ... throw away the guidebook and star ratings and just climb what's in front of you, you never know how it might turn out?

Dear Ms Wendy,
Are you being totally truthful?
This is not what I heard from Mildred (made miserable).
Yours, (with some concern).

Well, when you've been around as long and as actively as Simey, there has to be a few casualties along the way ....

But I still reckon what you see is what you get with Simey. He doesn't claim to do committment, and he doesn't do committment. If you don't like it, don't go there hoping it might change ...

Well, he is really. I know we get hours of entertainment out of bagging out Simey but I think it's worth mentioning now and then that he's a nice bloke. Maybe I should introduce him to my best friend as a great guy ... actually, Simey doesn't need any such help. Women like Simey and it's certainly not for power and money either! Simey's doing what every other single guy or gal does - sussing out the opportunities. He's just a little more proactive than most.

Like that Mr mousey dude that used to post on this Forum dearie?

Thank you Ms Wendy for posting a thinking girls perspective on the person some refer to as "having written the book".

>he doesn't do committment. If you don't like it, don't go there hoping it might change ...

I will stick with Derek my M10 love thank you, and continue to get good value out of our puffy jackets at Arapiles on cold campsite mornings.

This post is so close to my heart; and hilarious!

I started climbing as a single chicklet for the sport and quickly worked out climbing guys were hot, there was hardly any competition and loooooved the prospects. I'd say to noclimbingboys to suck it up and enjoy... How many sports are there where you're inundated with men, in a position to maybe have awkward flirting attempts in a gym - but where there's ultimately no pressure, becuase really, who's going to try to pash you at Burnley. Not to mention that since he's not going to raise it directly in such an awkward context you don't really have to be telling him you're not interested because that would be too presumptuous; its a win win for the girls.

And the camping. How fun! You can head away with guys where you really just want to climb, you climb and disappear into your tent early before all the drinks. Or, you can feign naivety and go to "climb" with guys who maybe if the stars are right and you're in the mood you can coax into your tent....

BTW camping scum is no barrier at all ... I'd definitely be jealous if my BF went away with another chick; are other climbers seriously not fussed? And ultimately we all want a climbing partner don't we? They can carry your rope, keep you entertained on ledges, make you coffee in the morning...

Good post. There should be more climbing girls with that attitude.

Maybe. You need to get to The Pines ASAP. Look for the tall guy surrounded by girls.

I'm glad you're enjoying the thread StartedWithTrees!

This connumdrum is close to my heart as well! I'm currently living it. The other day I gave this boy the coldest shoulder I could muster. All allusive and totally uninterested in what he was saying. I even did the talking about myself ad nauseam. All the while feeling pretty stupid and low. I thought he got the message. But then hours later I get a text from him. What the...?

I like your perspective on the situation. Plenty of boys and admirers, unspoken flirting, sexual tension abounds. if it were with guys that I found attractive, then yeah... bring it on! But it's not. I seem to have this magnet that draws the most dorky, self-centred, uninteresting boys.

Climber boys are some of the cutest, up there with surfer boys! But in amongst the flock there are some duds who have: egos, flabby arms, no butt, bad haircut, bad taste, weak and scrawny, over weight, middle aged, can't cook, too serious...

I've been told I have too high standards...phff...

I think your problem here is that talking about oneself ad nauseam is how some people declare their interest

I have a few of those characteristics... how many are we allowed to still be considered?

If a male came on here and posted about climber girls with "insecurities, bat wings, too much butt, too much hair, weak and scrawny, over weight," etc... I would be offended and i think climber boys should be given the same respect. I'm assuming you're climbing's answer to Miranda Kerr and can afford to diss all the boys that are falling all over you. From my more earthly female perspective, I would take it as a compliment, unless of course you're being stalked....but come on, give the guys a break.
