  1. Why thank you! :) Your avi is quite nice actually..

  2. Gorgeous signature.

  3. You, person, are never on skype. :| lol

  4. Male Or Female, And Why?

    Um I said women are more likely to start behaving like men, not boys.. Yes there are teenagers in-game, but if that's the people you are talking to then okay, but not every male says "YOUR MOM" jokes or kitchen jokes? Again you are generalizing people and trying to clump it up into a fact. I'm not trying to offend you or anything, just so you know. You don't understand what I'm saying, I don't think. EVERYONE on the forums is not EVERYONE who speaks english who wants to play Blade and Soul. Like.. I think there about 2,000- 3,000 members on this website. NOW, I am positive that there will be more than 3,000 people in BnS. And I will not accept your guesses as being fact because it's not logical to me, I'm not saying it's not true, but I'm not taking someones random guesses who can't provide me with proof as their guesses to be true. Wrong: deviating from truth or fact; erroneous: a wrong answer. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Wrong?s=t Proving you wrong? If there is no evidence to prove you right, then it becomes wrong and a good percentage of people who like accuracy and fact. I like facts and what your saying is just illogical to me. NOT saying it isn't to everyone, but to me, It doesn't make sense. Lol, agreed, although I'm going to be a big, strong, and sexy female and then my alt will be a dainty looking one. So I have both effects. I can be a total badass AND sweet
  5. Male Or Female, And Why?

    I disagree, nowadays it is more common for females to behave more like men and video games. That may be what you meant but it is NOT what you had said. YOU SAID They would be a female FOR SURE, no doubt, but female FOR SURE. I'm letting you know that is incorrect. So I have no idea what you're talking about, you didn't say the word most in your previous post, ALSO, when you are able to prove to me that that people who use emotes and FM/ Summoner. Maybe I'll consider your arguement, but something happening 3 times, doesn't make it a fact. I'm sorry. Plus only a small percentage of people are playing B&S on the forums, so you can't assume that everyone on Blade and Soul does these things.. It doesn't make sense.
  6. Male Or Female, And Why?

    What your saying doesn't make a lot of sense... Plenty of guys have said they'd be a force master/summoner in previous posts of this thread.. I just want you to know, your opinions are very bias and there is no fact supporting your previous statements, so please don't make Daybreeze out to be the bad guy, when you aren't making valid points, just stating your opinion. I act more boyish in game because I used to be a tomb boy so I think smiley faces are stupid an unneseccary, and I love a good debate. Plus I'm too competitive for my own good and am always asked if I am a guy in the MMORPG's I play, because I behave like a guy. It's not offensive or anything cause I can't blame 'em. (Plus plenty of men made with a little "sugar" use lots of emotes and behave like ladies). Please try not to make your opinions sound like facts, It's just a wee bit frustrating and was the only reason I decided to reply.. I agree :D But he didn't tell me, someone else told me in-game and then I approached him and he told me. Then after that I realized he'd purposely been acting like a girl and that after he told me he behaved differently.. More like a guy I guess. Be a guy but 90% of my friends are male (Talking real life, cause I can't seem to get along with women) so it was nice to think that I met a girl that I liked BUT THE CAKE IS A LIE.. Always was (LMFAO @ adult friend finder, almost pee'd myself)
  7. Male Or Female, And Why?

    Ikr! It really is hard to try and re-trust someone, sure gender isn't a huge detail, but it was part of the reason why I liked you. Because we could talk about things i couldn't talk to a guy about Really does feel like a smack to the face, because somehow I felt like the bad guy Plus, It'd be even "cooler" (dunno if that's the correct way to say it xD) if you just told me from the beginning cause you're honest and didn't plan to mislead me :D Lol I, overall, just agree with whatcha sayin' c: Preach :D ~
  8. Male Or Female, And Why?

    I will be female, cause I am female. Plus, I kinda think it's tricking people if say a guy chooses a female. One time, I had a really good "girl" friend ingame for a year, only to find out it was a guy who I told all my lady secrets to. So.. Yeah sure be a female, but make sure if someone is "interested" in you, in anyway, that you let them know your true gender. <33 otherwise people get hurt v.v
