What books does your girlfriend read?
Is she more patrician or less patrician than you?
She's russian and read all the russian classics, more than I have. She also loves french poetry. Can't really complain although she watches way too many of these"cute animals doing silly things" videos in her free time which can be irritating when I'm trying to read.

You losers will never know this feel.

The fact she likes watching cute animal videos suggests she is caring and maternal. It's a good thing.
Chances are she's already thinking about having children with you. She probably has a shortlist of potential names already. I would propose ASAP before she becomes impregnated by a rival male.
>dealing with depressed women is terrible.
But they're so kawaii
they're really not, you just romanticise the idea of an introverted sad girl in touch with her feelings that you can hold and tell that it's going to be okay.
The thing is, it will never be okay, she will always (not permanently, but reoccuring) be miserable and drag you and others down with her.
As a degree-educated biologist and a profoundly observant amateur anthropologist I can assure you that, despite your attempts to undermine the concept that human beings function (especially in the sexual sphere) in a brute and animalistic way, studies and statistics prove that relations between the sexes continues to exist in a more-or-less primitive manner. This is why I have chosen to remain celibate and dedicate my life to the Lord and to the pursuit of scientific truths. To engage in so-called "Romantic" affairs only undermines your inherent dignity as a human being capable of rational thought. Engaging in sexual intercourse is the intellectual equivalent of throwing feces at the walls.
Currently Tolkien's Roverandom to prove a point that she can speed read and take everything in as its a short story.
Turns out she can read three times faster than I can whilst remembering the basics whilst doing so, and doesnt read as a hobby. What a waste.
but a woman, no matter how miserable or ugly, can always get attention by just showing her tits/offering sex. and can always find women to be friends with without them worrying about just trying to put it in. so if a woman seems miserable, she is a complete basket case. a miserable depressive man however is just sissified. being a man is like being the ugliest girl in the room.
Actually she speed reads a range of books. When I had her tested she read a chapter of Bleak House as part of her assessment. Just last week she read Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in under an hour (I timed her). I wish there was a way to monetize her abilities but as far as I know there is not.
>tfw your gf is a total pleb but sex is good and you are nothing but an animal after all
Picked up my current gf basically using a DFW quote (kinda funny). I got her into reading literary fiction and she's starting off with easier stuff now.
She just finished Lolita and is working on pic related now. What should she read next?
Can we talk about boyfriends too?
He's not patrician. Reading The Martian right now, recently starting going through the Star Wars EU stuff he hadn't already read. Reads a lot of other fanfiction too, if that counts.
I never get him to read anything I like, so I stopped trying to suggest him things years ago.
I studied engineering and my gf studies literature. I can't really complain, she reads stuff like harry potter and GoT, but she also likes García Márquez, Cortázar and Carlos Fuentes.
Also, the prose she uses writing is pretty.
