If you're trying to lay pipe, then watch the movie. If you seal the deal, you won't lose man points.

Last I checked, man points weren't handed out for hiring prostitutes. I don't see why you would therefore somehow get them for indulging yourself after putting up with this movie. It's more like admitting to being whipped. And being whipped is understandable. When I was younger, I was whipped. But you don't get points for being whipped (in fact, it's normally the opposite, unless she's really hot, and even then, you don't get points, you just don't lose them).

Look, "Catty Cat," or whatever it is that you call yourself, there's no need for us to fight. You've just clicked on the wrong thread. Every thread isn't for every poster. Why don't you just relax? Serve yourself a half-strawberry yogurt in your favorite bowl, and then drop three ice cubes in a glass and pour yourself a nice, refreshing Zima. You'll be all fixed up in no time.

Oh wait, I just noticed that you said "and paying"...this is a complication. On the one hand, a gentleman should pay, unless he's broke. On the other hand, dogs don't pay to be neutered, do they?

Just one more reason why this film is to be avoided at all costs.

Right cause its wrong to like someone for being a good actress and being in solid, respectable movies.

You're the one initiating it and getting worked up over it.

Speak for yourself. The world must know the plight of the wealthy, middle-aged, white woman.

You're right. I guess I can't keep up with your "man points" of 10000+

Hold up.


I thought we had upgraded to cards and did away with the archaic points system?

Haha I'm not talking about a prostitute. If I felt like the girl felt obligated to sleep with me, merely because I payed for something, I'd be pretty weary and probably wouldn't pursue that, unless I just wanted to get laid. What I'm saying is, what if seeing this movie was the very "tip of the iceberg" that in a hypothetical way helps solidify a positive night, between two honest and normal people that have a mutual attraction to each other. I'm not talking about being "whipped", which is a legitimate concern and issue, I'm talking more about being flexible and caring, even if it meant doing something I wouldn't exactly (think I'm going to) enjoy. If I asked my girl to go see something like Grindhouse with me, I'd expect her to feel the same way to some extent, if she knew I really wanted to see it. Being a gentleman, I guess, deserves some "man points". But like I said at first, if she took it for granted or "just needed someone to go with", I'd respectfully decline the invitation.

You can only revoke one's man card if you see them in person. And the man card gets revoked once, no further penalty can be levied. Points can be administered or retracted from a distance, and allows for varying levels of manliness.
