" What do you do? "
Posted: 6/28/2014 3:32:21 PM
I know everyone is judgemental but how much would you say you judge a person based on their job?
Would you think twice about dating someone with a lower / higher income than your own?
Are you ashamed to tell some people what you do for a living because you can feel them judging you?
I try my very best to not ask what someone does for a living when meeting new people - I really don't think it's just making conversation!
I think people use it to make assumptions about a person based on what they do!

Soul mate finding

But surely in order to find someone its best to keep all your options open - the way you meet someone does'nt define how you will get on!

20 dates no spark :-s
Posted: 10/4/2013 5:00:32 PM
^^^ exactly!
I think the more dates you go on the more uninspired you are!
I get the whole spark thing but you need to leave gaps inbetween your dates otherwise they all blend into one!
Love at first sight in my opinion is a load of old bollox!
How can you love someone you don't know?
You can like the parts of that person you know after a few hours but you cant know a person after one date!

Negativity especially in the media
Posted: 7/19/2013 11:27:54 AM
I don't watch the news or read newspapers on a regular basis because it depresses me!
I try and search out what I choose to know about through other sources rather than be spoon fed crap that belongs on stage rather than what is actually happening in the real world!
It should all be taken with a pinch of salt IMO!

Is there really a type for you?
Posted: 7/11/2013 10:42:02 AM
Haha
OK we've covered fat women lets start bashing short men now ; )
We all fancy who we fancy right?
Why are people getting offended - if we aren't someones type then who are we to tell them we should be!
I've put on a few lbs over the past couple of years and if I'm not someones type then I really don't give a toss!

I don't have a type as such but I know what I find attractive but I'm not about to go around telling those people how they ought to change themselves in order to be desirable to me - that's just rude ; )

In POF world - unless your inbox is full of hundreds of messages a day from "undesirables" then I think its best not to put the ones you do what off by making derogatory comments about the things you find unattractive!
Most people don't respond well to it - especially women about their weight!
If you put "no fat birds" on your profile then even the slim ones wont want to talk to you - think about it ...........

Is attraction a choice ?
Posted: 7/1/2013 3:54:36 PM
I think attraction is a choice - we are all socially conditioned to find certain things attractive through TV / magazines / peers etc.. and some people aren't honest about what they really find attractive!
I can find someone attractive without talking to them - and within mins of talking to them watching their mannerisms etc ... I have changed my mind!

Talking about overly fake happy people - I was just out shopping and it was full of people that leapt in front of me smiling and babbling like lunatics about things I should spend my money on!
People to entice you into shops - people wanting charity donations and a lot of god botherers ( Im not sure who they were - the ones in the black suits ) trying to get me into their cult!

Posted: 6/5/2013 3:01:55 AM
I dont understand the point of rejection messages!
No one likes to hear that you dont fancy them or vice versa - and why open yourself up to a possible conversation about why you're rejecting them?!
No reply is a reply - what are you going to reply to the 20 "hi" or "how are you" messages per day in your inbox?
Personally if I dont get a reply then I know where I stand - sorted x

POF in UK
Posted: 5/24/2013 3:25:36 AM
I agree with a lot of what theoldbill has said.
Having more restrictions will improve the image - and will deter some of the people that use this site as a shagging playground - but as everyone knows there are ways around it!
In my opinion I would rather someone was upfront about wanting an intimate encounter / or are married rather than pretend to want or be something else.
The site cant be responsible for the actions of individuals - we all have to use our spidey senses when we choose to meet anyone from the internet!
I dont really like the age restriction - surely its through personal choice who we want to communicate with and there are already age restriction choices.
Am I considered a perv if I want to have a chat with a man 14yr my senior - I dont think so!

Do men really screw anything? Looking for honest answers.
Posted: 5/17/2013 9:07:00 AM
I agree with cautiousluv!
I know a lot of men that have had sex with women just because they could - but wouldnt be seen in public with!
Like she said "closing time at the bar or club" over the internet or often on this site - to many people I know this site is known as "plenty of fvcks"!
Its not just men that do this though - I think for some women its a case of bad self image and having a one night stand or just sleeping with any man that shows them interest is a way of feeling wanted - on a VERY temporary basis!

I completely agree with you that there isnt ever going to be a match where two people like absolutely everything about the other person - but how did you come to the conclusion that - Quote -
" you sound like the type of person who would rule out a man for the slightest fault and then moan there are no decent men left on here"

I think Im over sensitive to the way people talk and their tone of voice!
I was chatting with a guy I met on another site for around a week and he seemed lovely - funny, articulate all the qualities I like in a person - I was even willing to forgive that he was the same height as me ; )
I know its impossible to interpret body language and tone in writing but I never thought I could misinterperet someone so much!
Then last night I had a chat with him on Skype!
Its changed everything - he talks really quickly and mumbles!
Among other things about him that I find unnattractive that didnt come across in writing at all!
Oh no! What do I do? Im going to have to tell him that Im not interested - god Im shallow!
Does anyone else feel like this or is it just me?

It amazes me that some people feel the need to point this out!
They must be really bored!

I dont think the OP mentioned anything about not being there for his parents!
I think it was about someone he was in a relationship with making time for the relationship if they had so many other commitments!
And why should anyone feel bad about not wanting to be a care giver to an elderly parent!
Not everyone has the strength patience and a million other qualities you need to give care to an elderly person!
Sooooooooooooooo judgemental!
