Personally, I don't like playing opponents who like attacking all of the time.
Why ? Cuz it unnerves you ?....You see, that's exactly what fighting, attacking players are trying to do !
I prefer nice, quiet, positional games. I don't like a lot of chaos on the chessboard.
I prefer the quiet positional games described in the Kama Sutra
I'm intimidated by people I am attracted to, partly because I fear the prospect of failure. I'm a nervous wreck
My beloved plmw
I always make sure to read your comments....and love them !
Just remember you are better than them, and its their loss if they choose to miss out on a probable once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be in your presence. If they are too stupid to realize how amazingly cool and smart you are, well who wants to waste their time hanging out with fools? Remember to practice the laugh you'll use if you get rejected.
Get your feelings amputated, problem solved.
A loss is a loss; gender has nothing to do with it.
Chess is a battle of minds and that is what makes it so beautiful. If a male gets upset at losing to a female that implies he thinks males have superior intelligence which is just silly.
I'd like a game against Niki Minaj.
I think women are fascinating in more ways than one. They should come out to our coffeehouse club every Wednesday and Thursday nights and play us on a leisure basis!!
NO EXCUSES. If you have a husband? BRING HIM TOO. Kids? Yep. Boyfriend? Whatever. Drag his ass along and we'll teach the chap how to play.
I LOVE losing to women. It makes me feel sexy
All conflicts between men and women, from here on out, will be settled via chess matches.
So here's how it works.
Arguing over something? Want to go out with her, asked her for her digits but she became extremely rude and disrespected you? Think she's a bridge crosser? Whatever the excuse for arguing, it's not going to happen ANY MORE!
Color will be chosen via "pawn picking." Gentlemen, if you are White, you put the clock on the center of the chess board so she can decide which side of the board to put it on. 90 minute time controls with a 5 second delay. If you touch a piece, that's the piece you move. No takebacks. NO EXCEPTIONS! If your King is attacked, CHECK does not need to be called out, only optional; and if you make an illigal move while in check, she (or you grab hers) grabs your King and you (or she) lose instantly. If you dropped a piece, especially a heavy piece, blundered a Pawn and contest it, you are disqualifed, take a loss, and the next round begins. Best 3 out of 5 rounds. Use your strongest openings and all tactics you can. Pawn pick for the remaining 4 rounds. The winner of the match gets to decide how to end the argument.
Playing easy to get won't often make you lucky.
Men dislike losing. Losing to a child, male or female can happen too. Who are these people that like losing?
Exactly. Show me someone who doesn't hate losing and I'll show you someone who does it too often.
If a cat beat a dog at chess, is the dog supposed to be happy about it ?
just my 2 cents.
I DO HATE EVERY LOSE!!!
And how would I know for sure, what sex the opponent was - this is the INTERNET! Honestly, if you beat me, it`s alright, if it was your mind or my blunders, only would dislike if the opponent used a computer, but that I wouldn`t know either...
stop dragging gender into everything as an issue. most men I know hate losing, period. I don't play differently against different players based on gender or anything else. I'm rarely if ever even aware of the gender of an online opponent; I don't ask, don't care. The fact that you brought up gender means it is an issue for you. Lose your obsession with it.
the obvious answer is yes, because in this male dominated world, men still think they are mentally superior to women. even those men who don't say it still believe this way.
