Men of Canberra are unfunny, horny, egotistical commitment-phobes

By dr phil - 23 July 2009 93

The Canberra Tmes has a story called “Women saddened by lack of humour”.

It is the result of a survey, commissioned by adult dating site Redhotpie.com.au, that found men of the nation’s capital were petrified of commitment, most likely to want sex on the first date, and the least funny of any state or territory.

Are We?

[ED – or is it that Canberra women are far more critical?]

My man is nice, young, fun and totally not scared of commitment to me and my kids and hails from Kambah and has a horny egotistical side too, which I love!

Who says they aren’t out there and us local women can’t enjoy them.

Pfft! My single girlfriends are super fussy and love their single life but even they get nice surprises sometimes.

My wife is Japanese, and she loves me for who I am, not because everyone else in her circle approves of me, or due to my wealth,status, or physique. I don’t have much of all 3, which is why I know her love is genuine 😀

My wife is Australian and I know she loves me because, quite frankly, I’m not wealthy, don’t have any great status (in fact I hate and purposely reject status symbols) and lost whatever great physique I used to have years ago. Moreover, I think I’m a bit of a pr*ck and I hard to live with.

That said, my wife says I am neither unfunny nor an egotistical commitment-phobe.

As for the “nice guys” argument, this is not just a Canberra thing. I find many Australian women say that they want a “nice” guy, and I’d bet $1000 most of them have a male friend that they classify as “nice”.

The catch with this is that many such women actually mean that “nice guy = drip” (whether it’s true or not), and they’d rather go out with a bastard. When the inevitable happens, they go back to their “nice” male friends and complain.

So in some cases I think that Australian women get what they deserve.

You are so wrong. What you are really saying is that they think “nice male friend = drip”. In actual fact “nice male friend = no chemistry”, possibly on both sides. How you can think that this is somehow the woman’s fault is beyond me. It’s not like she’s doing it on purpose.

You try sleeping with somebody you are not at all physically attracted to! Hello! Problem!! Small, limp, yet serious and potentially embarrassing problem ….

Gents, may I suggest you go offshore for a woman who appreciates you. My wife is Japanese, and she loves me for who I am, not because everyone else in her circle approves of me, or due to my wealth,status, or physique. I don’t have much of all 3, which is why I know her love is genuine 😀

Now this is just insulting. Are you implying that most Aussie women love their men for the shallow reasons you have mentioned? How many rich, famous, powerful, Adonises do you think are walking around out there? … Earth to Ryoma!

I know many Canberra couples and the men are nice but ordinary and their women love them just the way they are.

I’m happy for you that your foreign wife loves you, but that doesn’t give you any excuse to insult local women.

ooh granny, we love it when you talk dirty… ; )

I am a Canberra bred girl and anyone who has problems with them needs to be put over somebody’s mother’s knee, I reckon.

I wasn’t born here, I don’t work in the APS, and i met my wife at a taxi rank – we shared a cab.

I don’t have cliquey groups of friends, I value my friends as they are people who, to some degree understand me. I don’t put much faith in redhotpie – they seem very interested in the capital couples venue in fyshwick. dunno why – it is for couples, not singles…

Put some clothes on!

I find the born-here, bred-here and have-never-left Canberra blokes to primarily be wimpy, chinless, grey, self-important and with an institutionalised APS mentality.

The down side to inbreeding?

RatsNest said :

Bloke comes up and joins the group with the introduction “I was on my way to the toilet to chuck up but then i saw yoose and decided to join ya… *burp/hiccup*”

*Shudder* I’m sure some would see the crude humourous side to it… but not I.
How about “Hi, I’m Frank, and I’d like to get to know you.” I know it’s not funny, but it’s honest. Of course there’s the ambiguity about the “getting to know you” part – her personality, or how her assets hang?

*hey, there’s a hole in my shoe?*

I don’t know why Canberra men are branded ‘committment-phobes’. I know lot’s of single guys who are quite happy to commit to sex on the first date. Maybe not freaky, dirty, try-something-I-wouldn’t-do-with-a-chick-I-wanted-to-be-friends-with sex, but sex nontheless.

C’mon girls, can I get an AMEN?

First time I’ve laughed all day and I tell ya, I need to right now. Cheers VY!

The problem I’ve always found with Canberra and had lots of people comment on it is how cliquey it is everyone goes out in their little groups of work,school,uni,sport whatever friends and sits in their little huddles and talks to no one else all night and seem to think that anyone trying to start a conversation or even say gday is somehow intruding on the group who are always very sharp at cutting down anyone else.

You’ll observe this everywhere in Canberra.

Might have something to do with the attempted interaction of the ‘intruder’. My all time favourite example of this was just a few weeks ago at King O’s in the city. Group of girls sitting having a drink and a laugh. Bloke comes up and joins the group with the introduction “I was on my way to the toilet to chuck up but then i saw yoose and decided to join ya… *burp/hiccup*”
