    Shallowness

    Discussion started by OMG Im Naked - Oct 26, 2004

    Recently, ive only just noticed how vain and shallow a lot of my friends are, some not as bad as others but it just suprises me that people in their 20's are still so image consious about the stupidest things.

    Examples

    - Avoiding painting with some really fun people because of their lack of skill..WTF IS THIS SHIT?! does it really matter? do you think people will care, or think any less of you?

    -Really sucking up to the more popular, (big shots within different social crowds) MAN SERIOUSLY! sure the guys loaded and gets with a plethora of hot women....but at the end of the day his not going to leave you in his will, and you being his groupie wont get you any girls.

    Those two examples should get my point across, what i,m asking though is are you vain/superficial/shallow? i have to admit i do sometimes find tiny traces of superficiality in me i try to stop it, but are you so shallow that the skill level of your friend is important to you? Do you select your friends based on their popularity and assets?

    yup....i find it really easy to drop friends/girlfriends like hot potatoes if they piss me off, not like simple shit, but just erase them completely out of my mind and act like theyre not there if i see them. is that shallow?

    No offence but I think the type of friends you keep can be a reflection on who you yourself are.

    Having said that some of my friends have the problems your talking about at one point or another. I chalk that up to human imperfection, the majority of people can't keep their shit straight %100 of the time.

    Generally the people I'm cool with are way beyond that kind of stuff though, and I think in most of those friendships thats a big part of the reason we're friends in the first place. We get along because we have a common head space.

    Well even in making this thread, it shows in some sense that your superficial. I mean, either having a quiet word to your friends to pull them in line or just cutting them out of your life is probably a mature thing to do then making a thread on the internet about how piss weak they are.

    Thats not to put you down though. I think almos everyone is superficial in some way or another. I called my neighbour "a scroin" in another thread for fucks sake.

    i am a little shallow. i admit that
    but not nearly as shallow as the rest of my friends

    sometimes i have to hang out with my "other freinds" in private because my friends dont like my other friends and refuse to like them

    sigh

    alpha males tend to dominate in social groups and setting. males that are subordinate to them are the beta males. the beta males will occassionaly receive the left overs of the primary alpha male. the females congregate to the alpha male because he usually has the strongest genetic factors and they want his dna.

    alpha males usually clash with other alpha males and leads to social stress.
    alpha males tend to make all the other males follow their order or be excluded. that is the issue. males in general are stupid and have primitive behaviour. shallowness is defined by this.

    Im not really asking for advice on how to live a better life, the thread was a bit of a rant, and to encourage discussion.

    Regardless, i have more non writer friends, the non writers like to spend mass amount of money on stupid shit, go to clubs, bars etc which can be fun in moderation

    Whereas the writers like to....well write, and get drunk and go write on shit which is also fun in moderation.

    All in all, shallowness is evident in both groups.
