At what age do you Just Give Up?Page 38 of 38    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38)
This is what overseas dating services are made for. I am also in this situation (pushing 40) I'm 35 and In 5 more years I will give up on American women and find my Russian Bride in her 20's who's ready for marriage, Kids, and family here in the good ol' USA. American women dont know what they want anymore.

Well, at least it appears they know what they DON'T want!

Wouldn't trust overseas brides or dating! Could be a man acting like a woman trying to say they need so much money to come see you for the airplane ticket and actually take your money or identity.

I think giving up at 40 is the right age to exit the game.

I'm 40, been single 13yrs. And as of midnight 31st Dec 2012, I retire completely from attempting to date and find love.

At that point you have to concede that you are undatable and your window of opportunity has since passed.

Oh, we'll. it just means I can go fishin more and worry less.

^^^^^ Oh, crap….I’m eight years too late. Where’d I leave that cyanide capsule?

Anton0133, I hope your midnight castration procedure goes well. What a great centerpiece for the coffee table!

I wonder, could he get that bronzed, like people used to have done to their kids baby shoes?? Or maybe take it to a taxidermist, have it stuffed and mounted? Maybe have it embalmed?
'Cause otherwise-its' gonna start to rot-and stink....

Nah going to put it straight in the trash. I don't want any reminders of my failure to meet women.

Very nice, ladyc4!

I had originally envisioned a sort of glass vase with perhaps a fancy type stopper, filled with simple formaldehyde.

But I really like the bronzing idea, it could be mounted on a nice mahogany or cherry wood base…oh, I do like that!

Stuffed and mounted…. A bit Norman Bates-ish, but definitely a real conversation starter. And I imagine that option might be appealing as he could probably request that it be a bit “over” stuffed, if you get my drift. ;)

If it was embalmed maybe he could get some little outfits for it and dress it up for special occasions…a little Santa suit, a bunny suit for Easter, a long beard and tiny yamaka for Hanukkah …the fun possibilities are endless! :)

Anton0133, if you thought a bit more creatively, maybe you wouldn’t be such a poopy head. :)

Haha, poopy head!
Hey I failed, and that's ok. I tried my best and nothing ever came of that. But that's ok because I gave it a real good shot.
I can now move on to the next phase of my life with no regrets.

Poopy head, nice one! Lol

In response to the original posting. .at what age does one give up? I would say when you attract more undesirables (ie. ones who are too much older, or out of shape, or ones you're just not attracted to) than desirables. It's not that I think highly of myself. .it's just I refuse to date someone I'm not attracted to.

For some reason that's all I've been attracting are ones that are out of shape, want a baby daddy, or don't even bother reading my profile and what my interests are. I swear that half the time, it's bots that are sending me messages because they are damn near written the same. I'm not looking for a super model, (I do like a little meat on the bones) but I'm also not attracted to someone who either is unable to work out and stay in shape, or refuses to. I don't just limit myself to online either, in social settings it's worse. If I drive my Mercedes and women see me leaving it with the valet, then I'm getting women that are just looking for wrong things, if I drive my Ford Fussion and nobody pays any attention to it because it's not an $80k car then I'm lucky if I talk to more then just the bartender or the DJ that night.

I've just come to terms that if it's ment to happen then someone will come into my life that's good for me and I'm good for her, until then I'll just sit back and live my life with my kids until they move out. No sense in pushing out 25 messages a day on here and don't get a response, going to the bar's, theaters, ball games, etc with a hope of meeting someone as it's just too much of a game for women now, they have the advantage and they know it. (No that's not an insult to any women that reads it, it's true that the numbers are against the guys, some of us just see it and accept it)

My parents met when my dad was 40 and didn't end up having me until he was 47, and he was turning 50 when my little brother was born. He has been a wonderful parent and if you really want kids, don't give up.
