Dude, fucking talk to me if you see me playing the game. I'm out and about and I like that it helps me meet people. I'm usually awkward in conversations, but it's an easy conversation starter with people my age.

When they add PvP, if I'm playing and you're playing and you make eye contact, this means we must do battle.

I can think of a lot of times that won't end well. One person is in a hurry and just checking on how long their eggs still need to be incubated, both people are on the same team, one player has a team 10-20 times stronger than the other, etc.

I mean, that's how it is in the game. When you make it massively multiplayer, somebody needs to play the role of the annoying speedbump with six fucking magikarps

Yea, i lean introverted but idc if someone strikes a convo with me if im playing pokemon Go.

Pokemon Go is suppose to be a socializing game by design as you can join teams and battle other players.

Pokemon in general was meant to be interactive. They added stuff in later games so you could play against really smart CPUs or trade online, but a major part of the original concept was fighting and trading with people.

So how to these harpies ever expect to meet a man? How do they think normal people meet?

Two people meet who have a shared interest and discuss said interest. GOD FORBID!

This woman is going to be one of those "where have all the good men gone?" and "I tricked a guy to do housework" article writers when she's 40.

Nah, this system won't be around when she's 40. And likely people like her won't make it 40.

I can understand wanting to be a bit anti-social in your gaming, sure hat's fine. We all have our moments. That said this woman comes off as a condescending BITCH. People genuinely wanting to help each other out and all you want to do is equate them with rapists and thugs or so called undesirables? What's worse is she seems to have a phobia of people different than herself, people that are usual social shut-ins or introverts getting out in the world and socializing, having fun, getting exercise and helping one another. Lastly she WANTS these people to go back into a regressive and unhealthy state. I can hear the feminist chest beating of 'equality' drowned out by the roar of 'pompous snob'.

Full disclosure; I don't play it myself because I lack the time, money and phone/service to make it work, but I don't shit on people that have the hobby, maybe a jab in jest every so often , but I do that to everyone. I don't care what you hobby is, it it's catching augmented reality animals, watching cartoons clearly outside the target demographic or making solid aluminum dongs out of pepsi cans in your back yard; whatever makes you happy.

Doesn't matter, had sex? That's fine though, I live a very cynical environment full of non-sandbagging assholes. I have a million more.

I was thinking something similar too. I can understand not wanting to be super social while playing this game. Personally, I like to mind my own business and do my searching on my own, but I think it's fucked up of her to tell people to go back in their basements. Seriously, it's a good way for unsocial people to be social, but don't take that away from them.

Honestly, I think she just wanted attention. It's the way she starts off the article, I don't know maybe it's just me. She wanted to appear as the "beautiful mysterious pokemon trainer" amongst the neckbeard storm. Who does she expect to bump into Some salt and pepper haired Christian Grey pokemon trainer?

Bitch is just being bitter because everyone that hits on her is some pokemon neckbeard and not some 10/10 Adonis. Shit what do you expect women it's pokemon go.

Honestly it's so easy to give people "the fuck off look" when playing this game. They will respect it, people won't speak to you if you do not want to be spoken to. Trust me, I'm a fairly attractive asian woman and I get attention playing this game, but no one bothers me and I play this game in NJ/NYC area. Yes, I encounter almost hundreds of players. Many people people play this game, from so many ages and races, and people don't bother those who do not want to be bothered.

Dumb bitch just wanted the attention. Stop ruining pokemon!

I've noticed over here in the Bay Area people are real friendly about it. She does seem to be bringing into the game plenty of her own social anxiety and awkwardness. Maybe it's to much to bare being out in the mix with all the common gamers /s. Personally my crew consists of my two young daughters and my dog. We trade off with the phone and roam around the neighborhood. It's a great excuse to go outside and play.

Basically, her time on sites like Tumblr (she seems to have renamed herserlf "Robyn") has left her with a strong desire to avoid even speaking to people who she labels as "undesirables", and rather than actually saying something like "Sorry, I don't really want to talk right now", she just gives short responses and then hides her true desire (to be left alone) behind extremely subtle actions that she thinks are blatantly obvious, giving her rant material for her next blog, or in this case, opinion piece.

Didn't you know? Men are supposed to be mind readers, only the 'creepy' ones don't know what a woman is thinking, at all times. That's why talking to her is Mind Rape, because you are ignoring her thinking to herself "No, no...I don't want this," you silly, privileged, cishet man.

My sister is a mirror image of this kind and you are spot-fucking-on.

We grew up without a dad and she obviously is taking the retarded road to adulthood.

I'm 24, I'm self-employed, and I own my home with no mortgage.

I am VERY ashamed to say that I am somewhat related to the retarded pile of genetics that is my (sister)

Isn't that half of the fun? Interacting on a casual, friendly level with people you wouldn't normally interact with?

She sounds like a bitch.
