Talking to the opposite sex! by Flameshadow117 Talking to the opposite sex! by Flameshadow117
Should I make one for boys, too? It goes both ways.

SRSLY though, "nerdy" guys are always going on about being unable to talk to girls. Like... we're from another planet. Fun fact: Women are people too, and you can talk to us the same way you talk to anyone else.

I think the major problem here is that when you say "Talk to women", you MEAN, "get into her pants/relationship"

Tip for both genders: get to know them, as friends. If there's chemistry, and you decide you are romantically interested, chances are they feel the same way. It has never failed for me. Except the one time he was gay. *cough* Two times.

maybe because the "nerdy boys" are in highschool and highschool girls are bratty, bitchy, and annoying.

It's uncomfortable for some people, though. Guys DO treat girls like people, but sometimes it just gets really, REALLY uncomfortable, especially if you're shy, introverted, or even have S.A.D. Especially if you're straight and they're the opposite sex. I know for me, it's uncomfortable talking to everyone. Not cuz I'm bi, but cuz I have S.A.D.

AMAZING.

It's not like the genders are, even when we are a sexually dimorphic species, THAT different, as if Girls/Boys are an exotic species that could kill you if you make the smallest wrong move.

I don't think that if somebody says "I don't know how to talk to girls" that it means they don't think they're people. Not always anyway.
I don't know how to talk to guys but I still know that they're people. :shrug:

Most girls are wired. I think its cute that men get shy talking to girls,hell I get shy talking to some men.  I mean not all men talk about sports and not all girls talk about make up(I'm tomboy). So therefore,I think its okay for most men shy to talk to girls :heart:. It makes me giggle c: 

Not all men think girls are wired

So don't take it to seriously :/

You do realise that some people have fear/a bit of a hard time talking to the opposite gender, right? For me, i find it extremely hard to talk to boys, and I always get nervous and shy around them because I only talk with girls. So please, don't make assumptions when people say they don't know how to talk to girls/boys when they are the opposite.

Yes, people have many irrational fears. You only talk to girls so you assume boys, are... what? They're aliens? Because girls only talk about their periods and makeup, and boys only talk about sports and girls? Should a boy be irrationally afraid to speak to *you* just because of your sex? 

Even the idea of an "opposite" sex is foolish. There's nothing opposite. You're human beings. It's okay to be afraid, but you really shouldn't be.

I am a girl, and I have an extremely hard time talking to boys. Not just because of their gender. It's because I really only hang around girls, and of course, someone as daft as you wouldn't understand our "irrational fears" because you don't have them yourself. Please keep in mind that everyone is different, and just because you think that we shouldn't be afraid of silly things like that, we are, and it has nothing to do with being "sexist". You have to understand where the person who is afraid is coming from. It's not even mostly because boys think that's all we talk about, it's usually because they only hang around the opposite gender. And yes, I will call it the opposite gender because that's what it is. It doesn't mean opposite as in interests or whatever the heck you're thinking. It means opposite because girls (obviously) don't have all the same body structure or parts as we do. Please stop trying to make it seem like everything is sexist, because it's not.

Lol i'm one of those nerdies xp
I always feel nervous when i try to talk with some hot guy. That happens because my brain is shouting that nobody will like me if i say something stupid or wrong, (or if he discover i'm not a confident person) :(
However, i don't care so much about what girls or ugly boys think of me.

Some people have fears of talking to certain people or even an entire gender. You can't really control who people are afraid of talking to. I'm afraid of talking to people who I'm not that close to, because I feel that they might reject me or think I'm weird. It's not that they don't "treat them like people," they just have a little social anxiety when it comes to talking to some people.

I mean, social anxiety is one thing, but blanket statement, "I have no problem talking to dudes, because dudes are dudes, but add boobs to the equation and like, what do I even talk to them about? Makeup?"

And if you really have very bad social anxiety that is targeted specifically at females, well, I'm not going to judge you, so long as you realize that's a *problem* you might want to work on. It's like, being afraid of mirrors. Or clowns.

...well, okay, everyone is afraid of clowns.

But you know what I mean.

this is a bit silly though, some people are generally afraid of the opposite gender and it makes them feel awkward and nervous, i feel like this when im around guys because i worry if i might say the wrong thing. i think it's also kind of rude to generalize that if a man talks to a woman that automatically means he wants to have sex.

Yeah, it's not like they will laugh at the poor guy and humiliate him in front of everybody. And just by the way, getting to know them as friends leads to friendzone.

Ok babe, I know you're not really trying to be a troll. You've just had a run of terrible luck. But idk who the hell has been laughing at people, because that is some cruel shit, and sounds like middle school. If you're in middle school... sorry dude. And getting to know someone as a friend isn't going to put you in a mythical "friendzone". 

Yeah, some women will just never see you as more than a friend, but you're not going to fix that by treating them as a sexual object instead of a human being. I mean, maybe that'll do it for some girls, but they've got their own emotional baggage. If you just treat a woman like a person and not as sex-meat, they're gonna be alot more responsive, you know? :P Don't perpetuate the "friendzone" myth, because that's some misogynistic bull.

I'm terrified of talking to anyone I have an interest in (either romantic or platonic) out of fear of being rejected. Or because I'm terrified of being hurt or something.

I can speak for a lot of shier people on this; a lot of us are terrified of the thought of speaking to someone we want in our lives. ; v ;
