Men Share How Their Interest In A Woman Drops From 100 to 0 Real Quick.


From degrading other people based on their profession, to whining and bringing up their ex in every conversation, 34 men share how their interest level in a woman went from 100 to 0 real quick!

[Source can be found at the end of the article]

1. Not wanting to be equal in the relationship

It killed my last relationship. The standard she held herself to was clearly different than the standards she held me to. It was "You should take me out to eat." Not "Let's go out to eat." The way she treated me and talked to me was not how I was supposed to talk to her or treat her. Worse, she couldn't see why that was a problem.

Got out quick.


2. Thats unfair

The type that seems to be on her phone all the time while she's with you and then when you actually text her, she never responds to your texts. Or responds with "k" or "lol!" or ":D". I mean I understand not having time or not having anything to say but really? After that it's pretty clear she's not into you. She's also usually the type that will do this and then when she comes to complain to you, you're instantly supposed to drop EVERYTHING for her.


3. Testing the relationship

She says or does things to "test the relationship" or "see how I would react."

Easy, I leave or state "You should go." if at my house.


4. That air of self-importance

Disrespecting someone they don't know for their position in life: janitors, custodians, waiters and cooks, bus drivers, etc.

If you believe any of those people are "below" you, then I'm done.


5. Making fun of someones appearance

Hey random woman, that man in my thrift-shops name is Peter, he was in a horrific car-accident when he was younger and suffered a brain injury as well as some scarring. That's why he dresses a bit funny and looks kinda dumpy. But he comes in almost every day to buy photo frames to put pictures of his parents in who died in that car accident. Don't judge a book by it's cover.

6. Water is life!

I recently had someone say that she didn't drink water unless she absolutely had nothing else. She said she hated it.

That, for some reason, was one of the most unattractive things I'd ever heard.


7. Doesnt add anything to the conversation

If it takes immense effort to maintain a conversation with her, that's a turn off for me. It's not my responsibility to make a conversation happen, it's a team effort.


8. Unbelievable!

When she never graduated high school, has no real job, her dream is to open a strip club, and then she makes me look at photos of her getting spanked by various c-list celebrities and watch her cringey pole-dancing videos on our first date at the bar.

The absolute show stopper though was that her favorite house in Harry Potter was Hufflepuff. That's where I draw the line.


9. Goals and aspirations

No goals or ideas about what she wants to do in life. A lot of women Ive met are just banking on getting married and being a stay at home mom. No thanks, I'm trying to find someone to build the 2nd Prussian empire with.


10. When the ex is involved

When she keeps referencing her ex. Nothing says "You are only here to fill in the void" more than her constantly reminding you she had someone before you.


11. Good looking people are everywhere!

I once was dating a girl and while at the bus stop she suddenly said "there's no attractive people around here right now." Super weird, but okay. I said "well, you missed a really cute Latina girl walk by a few seconds ago" and she says "You're just pointing out another hot girl you saw? You can't do that! It makes me feel insecure!"

Left immediately. Everyone has insecurities, but damn. The relationship I had before that (and now) we were constantly pointing out good looking people to each other.

12. No games

Playing hard to get or acting uninterested. I'm 30, I don't have time to keep courting you to see if you come around. If you're not clearly in to me on the first date there won't be a second.


13. A terrible attitude

I remember once I got this beautiful girls number in college and took her out to dinner. She spent the entire time complaining about everything under the sun (parents, friends, the food, the restaurant). At one point I was tempted to sneak out but I stuck it out and it actually got worse. After it was all said and done she tried to get me to take her out again but I weaselled out of it.


14. Annoying voice

I don't care if she is the most beautiful woman on Earth, if she has a stupid voice I can't even be in the same room without internally screaming.


15. Just generally speaking

Clingy, thinking irrationally, losing their temper and expecting other to be fine with it and being a nasty piece of work I general.


16. No smoking, no partying

If she smokes it's an instant turn off for me. My dad, mom, grandma, grandpa, and most of my aunts/uncles smoke (or smoked...) and I can't stand the smell anymore.

A party girl is a turn off for me too. I don't drink anymore for several reasons and I'm done dealing with that lifestyle from anybody. I don't care if she drinks a bit, but I'm not going out to bars, etc, and partying with her while she gets drunk 5 days a week.


17. Manipulative qualities

Having been in a toxic relationship where she did exactly this and was just a sociopath, I've gotten good at identifying potential abusive partners.

Now landed on my feet after 7 + years dealing with depression and a suicide attempt and having to try and deal with her. Have a beautiful fianc and going to uni. I don't look back at all.

18. Its all in the astrological signs

Anything about horoscopes or other new-age stuff. It's insufferable to be subjected to that, and when a profile is full of it, you know the dialogue will be too. Had one try to get me to do crystal healing, another refused to talk to me because of my astrological sign (I don't even know what it is), it's terrible.


19. Rewriting the past

Yes, people make mistakes sometimes and I can accept that, but if you are regularly insisting that I promised things I know I'd never promise then we've got beef.


20. No respect for fast food employees

If they are extremely rude and disrespectful towards, or make fun of, fast food workers. I worked at McDonalds for 6 months between jobs, and the people I worked with are all some of the nicest people I've known. A lot of them were high school/college aged kids just trying to earn some spending money or pay rent at their apartment. Others literally had no where else to go but still came in with a smile.

So whenever a woman (or anyone for that matter) starts crap talking fast food workers or just being bullies, I automatically lose all respect for them.


21. Against reading!!! what?!?!

"I just dont like reading" or "reading isnt my thing".

Its one thing to be a picky reader or not having enough free time to get into a decent sized book but saying you are actively against reading is a huge red flag and makes me think less of you as a person.


22. Racial slurs

Women being vulgar around or screaming at their kids.

Generally, the woman who is making a scene public. You know the one screaming at what you can only imagine to be her boyfriend 10 feet from the entrance to a super market, at a volume that can be heard from across the parking lot.


23. A few things

Playing "hard to get" is a big one. There is a difference between being coy or shy and just being annoying.

The way she treats others. I walked out on one date after seeing the way she treated her kid and ended more than a few after seeing them treat waitstaff poorly or just being rude to others.

Needing constant validation is another big one. I don't care for you begging for compliments constantly. If I didn't think you're beautiful, smart, wonderful, etc. I wouldn't be with you in the first place.

Being dumb or playing dumb. If we can't have a decent conversation or if you constantly have to ask me to explain simple things then we just aren't compatible. I don't expect everyone to be a genius but I do expect people to know that the sun is a star and the earth is round.

24. Be yourself

Women that try to be Kim Kardashian. I wouldn't want to be with a woman who's trying to be someone else, even if I liked the person she was trying to be.


25. Bad attitude, bad behavior

When she gives attitude to everyone, then justifies that she's only exhibiting bad behavior due to stressful circumstances she's under.

No matter how crappy a persons circumstances are, I don't think it gives them the right to be a jerk.

Other reasons: Being irresponsible, refusing to clean up her mess and refusing to let anyone else clean it. Being a woman-child who can't take care of herself and throws tantrums in public. Thinking it's acceptable to cancel appointments and break promises that were made. It just shows disrespect for other peoples time.


26. Believing the wrong things

An example was a first date with a woman, and at some point our conversation was about speeding tickets. She told me that you don't have to pay a ticket if the cop was hiding when he clocked you on radar. Because that's entrapment. He has to be in clear view for the ticket to be enforceable.

I didn't know her well enough to call her a fool, so I just nodded like I was learning something. But I was mentally swiping left.


27. Last minute cancellation

When you get irritated at them for something, and they try to twist it to make you apologize for having the audacity to express that irritation.

Like if you agree to meet somewhere at 3, you call/text at 3:15 because they're not there and you haven't heard anything. Then they finally respond at 3:45 saying they have to cancel for whatever reason.

And it may be entirely justified (although it takes literally seconds to let someone know "hey I can't make it" before the agreed time), but if they can't even understand how you could be mad that you sat around waiting only to get a cancellation an hour late.


28. Uninteresting conversations

Being boring. I've known a few women who were drop dead gorgeous but could not carry on a conversation to save their lives. I knew a girl that was pretty into me but the conversation would go south so fast.

Example Me: How was your day? Her: Good. Me: ... Her: You? Me: Can't complain (insert brief description) Her: Cool. Me: ... Her: How are you? Nope.

29. Wasted conversation and time

Feeling like every conversation I share with her is just wasted. Becomes more of a chore to talk with her.

Values, kinks, and sex over intimacy. Doesn't return sweet talk at all or anything. Hell, doesn't even respect the fact that I even have a job, whining about why I'm gone for periods. Sleeping for work, going to work and coming back from work fatigued.


30. Belonging to a certain group

Makes sure to say she's a feminist as soon and as often as possible. Or vegan. Or christian. Or atheist. Or whatever.

Now, realize that having certain values is one thing, and saying you belong to a certain group or ideology is another.

The first has to do with how you live your life, the second has to do with how you want people to perceive you. And, well, in my experience it's a bad sign when people want you to focus on what they tell. It usually means that there's something not quite right with what they show.


31. Communication is key!

Inability or unwillingness to communicate, to discuss current situations, to try and understand what is going in the relationship, romantic or not.

The only way to find common ground and to understand each other is trough communication. If you are not willing to do that... I can't keep investing my emotions in you.


32. That duck face pose

Being unable to put down their phone for 2 seconds.

Also duckface in photos. Might sound minor but do I want to be flicking though photos with the grandkids and be like "Oh look here's another of your grandma trying to look sexy but just looking like a vacuous slapper!"?

No, no I do not.


33. Not punctual

Please, if we have a time set then be there. It is even worse if it's for work or more important appointments. I see that as disrespect for the person you are meeting. It costs nothing to show up on time.


34. Lack of confidence

Difference between insulting yourself and making a funny self-deprecating joke. The line is thin, though. You can 'feel' it when the line's crossed, and it kills it for me.



Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like


My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

- RazerWolf04

My dad is a stairbuilder and I spent many summers working at his warehouse, so I can clear this up. 14.

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

- FormalMango


I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

- shicole3



I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

Emailing NASA

A woman was adamant that looking at the big solar eclipse on the television was unsafe unless you were wearing glasses. She wouldn't believe us and insisted on emailing NASA to check.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Albert or Arnold


Whether Albert Einstein or Arnold Schwarzenegger would be more useful to have around during a Zombie apocalypse. How on earth would Albert Einstein come in handy!?

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.

I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.

An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

Whales Are Mammals

I was in an online chat room one day, and we were talking about whales. I commented on how whales are mammals and the next thing you know, someone was arguing with me and trying to convince me that a whale was a fish.

Stupid microwaves. Having a man child talk down to me about how microwaves work only for him to google it and prove me right. He slept on the sofa that night.

Shower Schedule

My friend keeps telling me that the norm is that a person should shower once a week. This has been going on for years. I'm almost convinced he's trolling me.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence


How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

Male Chickens

I repeatedly had the argument with a friend over whether roosters were chickens. She was convinced that only the females were chickens (hens). We were 18 at the time.

Lightning McQueen

Me and my friend were drinking underage, we ended up in an argument of whether lightning McQueen's eyes were blue or green. Somehow throughout the whole thing both of us never thought to straight up google a picture.

But ... Ice Floats

Waiter/Host here.

Woman wanted ice on the bottom of her drink.

Now read that sentence again and try to imagine arguing with that particular brand of stupid.

Time Zones Exist

Coworker claimed that it was the same time of day and the same season on the whole globe. Had to get 4 coworkers to confirm to him that time zones do in fact exist.

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?"

"that's orange"

"no, it's red"



It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Andre 2000?


I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)

The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.


Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.

I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.


Balloon to Heaven

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky. He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space.

And he got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.


Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.



Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.




3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.


Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.


Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.


Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.



My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.



How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).

How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.


Dogs and Chocolate


I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.


Is water wet?

My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

For the record, it is no to both questions.


Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.


Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.


Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.


Stars In Their Multitude


I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.



My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.


Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.


Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...


Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
