That's WHY It's Called Sex Appeal Page 15 of 23    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23)

Well yeah, the man would EXPECT to have sex within a month or two if he's taking the woman out, but on the flip side he shouldn't get ANGRY if he doesn't get sex.. it's her choice.. if eh doesn't like the lack of sex he should break things off and find someone who is willing to have sex, not complain about her. lol.


Men aren't angry about not getting the sex, they are angry about being led on, same as women. Is it any different than a guy giving you the impression that he loves you when he really doesn't? Sex is just a label for a larger issue.

I'd rather pay for my own meal[go Dutch as they do in Sweden] than have someone, grab-at, drool, or jump on me when I'm uncertain if I want to begin a physical relationship with this individual, no matter HOW MANY DINNERS HE BUYS or HOW MANY DATES WE GO ON. No one touches me until I want to touch him; I believe that a physical union with someone is a very special, spiritual, physical & intimate form of communication that if, misused is capable of causing much angst & negative energy.

I alway pay my own way on dates for this very reason. Guess by this logic I can only have sex by myself, since I paid for my food.

Exactly. Then I'll have sex when I want to and it has nothing to do with a guy's investment - also I can dismiss him from the table if he's not entertaining enough for me while I'm eating food I paid for. Granted I will probably want him to put out within a two or three weeks anyway - but this way it's not related to him wining and dining me. It's him knowing where I live that's the holdout for me in the dating process.

For years men could get by with picking up checks and chivalry. Now that men don't have to pick up the check for us - they'd better have some other redeemable trait that keeps them at the table. Good looks and a sense of humor will work. Otherwise I might as well take my plate to the bar and catch some TV.

I mean what woman actually goes out with a guy just for a free meal?


http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/date-food-women-seek-fancy-dinners/story?id=15107409

Then she got her female friends involved, more or less making it some kind of informal scam, to include working up profiles on spreadsheets and scheduling a "date rotation" with the other women.

Sniper: I missed this story and I'm glad you posted it. I don't think a lot of women realize how seriously men take dating. I think a lot of women believe we look at it as just a game, but the truth is that for most guys it is as serious as a heart attack. I'd be willing to bet that a lot of guys in that article don't even make the money they claim, but will still spend that kind of money on a date in the hopes that someone will love them.

The dating world is a rough world and it is sad that people take advantage of it, but that is reality, unfortunately.

I like the comment about saving the wallet for marriage.. The only problem is: You won't get many dates.

Amen

There comes a time when you gotta ask yourself: "what the heck is this person on the other side of the table bringing to my life that I couldnt bring, often times better, myself?

I do - and I think some take it entirely too seriously. I think that a lot of the time this mindset causes more disappointment, as well.

I think a lot of women believe we look at it as just a game, but the truth is that for most guys it is as serious as a heart attack.

And that's too much.

I'd be willing to bet that a lot of guys in that article don't even make the money they claim, but will still spend that kind of money on a date in the hopes that someone will love them.

That's crazy to me. However, if they do - they do. They are choosing to do so, despite the urgency or feeling they need to be half of a whole.

The dating world is a rough world and it is sad that people take advantage of it, but that is reality, unfortunately.

It's tougher and sadder for those who make it a mission and try to force connections with different means including spending a lot of money to sway someone's decision.

You may get less, but the ones you do get will be a better match.

Some women are seeking more evolved, intelligent men with stronger character

I'm not sure how intelligence and strong character corolade with not wanting to engage in sex?
Personally I'm attracted to a man that knows what he wants and goes after it. I don't need to be given the princess treatment or be persuaded to have sex. Sex is a natural progression in a relationship, timing differs on an individual basis, doesn't make anyone more 'evolved' in my opinion.

Actually, I'm planning , an adventure in Copenhagen in the near future... I think there's much merit in "going Dutch' & not just in Holland either. No, I think I'm quite content to not feel obligated because someone's bought me, "A Dinner"-?!
If all someone is into is jumping into the sack; well, there are very high-class
escort services but, the women will charge a lot more than the paltry price of a dinner:} !

Most women DO put a lot of effort into getting ready for a date... they use make up, wear bras to show maximum breast appeal, dye their hair, and look as appealing as they can for a man. WHY DO YOU THINK IT'S COMMONLY CALLED SEX APPEAL ???
I do that for myself, too


In this day and age, most men anticipate having sexual relations with a woman that they have been wining and dining, within a month or 2. They anticipate it, and most women probably do as well. SEX is part of a healthy relationship. Sex is passion, expression,communication, trust, excitement, and so much more. It's not the 1950's any longer... and how a woman sexually responds to a man says a lot about their compatibility.

So does that mean if I had sex w/ a man & had multiple orgasms, that he was compatable...in all ways, not just in the bedroom??? That doesn't make sense...

I agree, nobody should have sex if they don't want to, but that's not the point of the post. The post is about leading someone on and whether you are owed sex.

I don't think you are owed sex, but if anyone thinks sex is not a component of dating they are not dealing with reality. To have a relationship is to be physical otherwise it's just a friendship and you don't have to date for a friendship or spend money for one(in most cases).

Don't blame this "date and age" for your or his lack of morals. Not all men expect sexual favors as a part of dating. With STD's and so many people with extreme personality disorders, sleeping with someone within 30-60 days is not only stupid but dangerous.

Morals???

tell me how having consensual sex is immoral? and tell me how it could POSSIBLY have a set time thats reasonable for everyone?

most humans beings, not merely men, expect sex to eventually occur in a relationship.

the fact that you hold it in such disdain is kind of sad really.

This person this man who wines and dines.....this woman....for months....and is expecting sex but is not getting it.....is the woman a virgin? or inexperienced sexually or in life....? Why didn't he turn away from her and seek someone who would be more suitable if sex before marriage is a concern? Especially if marriage is not on his mind...
....Prosititutes are people who get paid to sexually please their clients....but don't necessarily get emotionally attached to them...or expect marriage...

Mysterious men scare some women....not knowing what to expect can diffuse the feelings of intimacy....and if she did give in....then what ...the mysteriousness would lead to ....a dangle on his belt for another conquest....leaving her scarred emotionally...

If sex before marriage is not the issue...what is?
Intimidating, controlling Sex appeal? or Just Skeered and afraid to get screwed?

no offense, back in the day.....the 50's guys and girls didn't have sex before marriage....they courted....got engaged....married...then had sex....

So just the reference of dating a lady and should instead see a prosititute in the same paragraph.... suggests...that the man is not seeking marriage just a fun time...but has not yet conquested this latest woman.. who apparently seems to be classier than a prostititute..because of the non sex.

If he was so charming...etc...why is he still single...first of all...?.
Then why.... if she is a 'user'....and he is so traveled doesn't he see her as one....
-------------------
What is it about this woman ....that sex became such an issue?
If he is still with her, why is he still with her ? is a better question.....
Old world observer? .... Maybe needs to find a new fish....

I have met 3 men from POF after talking to them for more than a month.
We meet in a public place to talk.




More than a month?

What; he's supposed to act like you're brand new to him?

Let's hear your thoughts

OP, you seem to be following very old fashioned dating rules with bizarre, outdated expectations. Times have changed my friend. Where were you?

In response to regular dating, I pay for myself whenever it is possible (sometimes men will demand and insist on paying). I like to take my time getting to know someone before doing it and if they insist on paying throughout this time why should that be my problem?


If a man, or woman's profile says DINNER COMPANION ONLY, then it spells out the terms of what he and she are looking for, and expecting.

1. I do know what it means, but no, you’re wrong, not everyone knows what that means. Spelling it out would look more like this: I WILL TAKE YOU OUT FOR DINNER IF YOU HAVE SEX WITH ME. And then you could call the sex police and report her if she doesn't.
2. Some women will change their mind.
3. Some women will try to change your mind.

These are your rules. You can’t expect all women in the world to change just so you can have sex with them. If the roles were reversed the same logic would apply.


Many of the women's replies told the man that if he expected sexual favors in return for dining and entertaining this woman, that he should get a Prostitute.

The reason for this is because it works so well with call girls and not so well with the ladies. Why else would there even be the need to mention it? Btw., how are things working out for you? A bit frustrated, are we?

Rachee30, just never have sex with a guy wanting anything else but to enjoy the sex itself. That way whether he calls again or not has nothing do with what happened. While sex is nice in a relationship, it's better off not to be confused with one directly.

Make it clear. Go to his place, and when it's over - start looking for your car keys. Shake it off...

Some men and women view sex as the primary force in a relationship. If I meet a man and he is the type that does not find me sexually appealing based solely on my appearance, then I am glad he weeded himself out as a potential date for me. He truly does need to date women who he finds to be hot looking. I am not saying that I find all men I might meet physically attractive, I am the type that finds average looking men with other good traits to be sexy for various reasons. My problem with the men whose primary goal is finding hot women is that they have usually been rude to me and act like no other man would find me sexy because they don't. When I send someone a pic the woman really is me they are seeing. The fact that they think I will morph into someone else before they meet me is their problem, not mine.
