Wondering Why People box themselves in with Specifics Page 5 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

But if one had a 14" penis. Would he want mail from woman that can not accomodate it?

It's funny how people seem to loose their grocery lists when they actually find someone they are attracted too.

and sometimes, the breakup that results is why...they post a grocery list :)

i'm sure there are people we aren't attracted to that we don't bother to look at their profiles, and find that they have a grocery list...and we aren't the least bit offended by that. seems like we're only offended when the grocery list gets us off the list. and that merely means...we weren't a match. we wish we were, but we just aren't what they are looking for. and so we just should move on. and I say that as someone fishing in a small pond with few to move on to. I get the frustration, but if someone with a hot body is looking for a rich guy with a hot bod...hey, she can get that, she has that right to ask for what she wants. she doesn't have to cater to me.

AS with the Interests field - I have no desire to camp or fish on weekends nor would I pretend I want to just to get dates with someone I fancy. Can imagine weekend 4, chewing my way outta the tent and getting lost in the forest trying to find my way home.
Don't care if he goes alone. With a few exceptions my idea of the outdoors is the space from my car to the store or restaurant.
Husband and I camped once. First and last time as an adult camping - and I wasn't very adult

^^^ On okstupid one of the questions deals with a scenario. I can't recall the specific question but a couple of the multiple choices are kissing in Paris and camping under the stars. I put in my explanation that if I am in a tent in the woods I am being held hostage and you should send for help.
Around these parts almost every single man's profile mentions camping, fishing, mudding, hunting - you get the idea - There are lots of women who are interested in those activities, I'm just not one of them.

Spot - lol. And yea I agree with Cowgirl - I just not interested.. I hunt my food at the grocery store.
Funny I wonder if they just say that - then when you start asking Qs last time they fished was 1995.

Maybe I should add to my profile that I like to go 4 wheeling. When I drive my car, I like having all 4 wheels on the road.

Turnoffs for me in a profile

Dead fish
Hunting
Truck
Sports Car
Motorcycle
Drinking

Positives
Riding a bicycle
Hiking a trail
Photo laughing or big smile doing some activity

I never boxed my self in. There were athletic outdoorsy males who contacted me ( like my boyfriend). In general I find these males more educated and interesting. There is nothing wrong with a truck or sports car but I'm not interested in a male who sees it as his identity.
