    Hey,
    What are your opinions on being/having intellectual whores. Do you think the ladder theory is real?

    Anyway, i beleive in the ladder theory, and I think I'm often an intellectual whore. Even though I have a GF, i think many women regard me aas an intellectual whore. I'm okay with it because I've always been better friends with women than men. There have been times when it is sexually frustrating, but I still enjoy their company even though I'm committed to someone else.

    Just wanted to get your thoughts.

    Peace

    Uhhmmm...sorry...and intellectual whore is a man who is friends with a woman because she finds him mentally simulating, but doesn't view him in a sexual way.

    So... an intellectual whore is another word for friends...

    I don't waste time being friends with people who aren't intellectually stimulating. Isn't that what friendship is based on?

    It's an extreme name for an non-extreme situation, but I guess i'm also an intelectual whore.

    I'm not sure I completely understand the term 'intellectual whore' but I do know that sometimes you can have an enormous connection with someone on just one or a few levels.. I have a friend whom I adore for his linguistic skills.. mail from him are this amazing pieces of pure poetry.. he writes stuff like: "I am sitting in front of my desk with lukewarm coffee looking at the forest surrounding my room through the window. The noisy, chaotic and insomniac image of Tokyo can be only applied to the center and it is absolutely silent and calm around here. Surprisingly enough my brain is clearest and full-operating despite a few bottle of wine."

    I just love'm for it :) But I have a boyfriend with whom I connect on almost every level and that's just too good to seem true :)

    Nearly all of my friends are men, I find it hard to relate to many women, I guess I my mum is the same and I gre up with two brothers.

    The only problem, and I know it sounds really big headed, but its the honest truth, its really hard to be friends with guys sometimes, because it usually turns out that they fall for me when I have a boyfriend... and then they end up wanting nothing to do with me becuase they cant be around me....

    that sucks :(
