Why do women keep insisting that it's harder for them to get a date?Page 2 of 7    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
I am just tired of people assuming that because I am single and dateless that it is because there is something wrong with me or that I am too picky. No one ever stops to consider that maybe I am dateless and single because guys aren't interested.

Excuse me, but I would like to add a qualifier to the "A woman will get offers for dates" statement....SOME women get offers for dates. The rest do not.

It is interesting how you can make determinations about someone's character based on one day in the Forums and without any clue who or what you are talking about.

Thanks for the vote of confidence evan, but the reality is that when I go "places" I am never hit on by men. If I am in a dance club, the girls hit on me though. Go figure.

I used to spend a lot of time at my neighbourhood pub for Hockey Night and for football etc....the bartender did ask me out....but for the rest of the place I might as well have been invisible.

People are always full of advice about the things I need to do to meet people....like "do what you love"...well, I am at the gym doing what I love 14-21 hours a week....have met a couple of women to chat with. Period. The rest of my life right now is filled with work, a nasty bus commute and studying. I have given up on the pub as a place to socialize and dance clubs are just freaking annoying as well as expensive. The online dating thing hasn't worked for me and so I will quit with that as well.

fox, crayola ... that is the downfall of being strong confident and good looking. Its attractive (to both sexes) but intimidates most men (that isn't your fault).

Wouldn't it be easier to be just a silly blonde. LMAO. But then posting in the forums wouldn't be that interesting.

I always said that if I ever wanted to get married again, I would do ALL my looking in the US.

and I have no confidence

ANYPLACE has to be better than the LeftCoast with the granolas, vegetarians and retirees.

The lack of social interaction is actually a big factor in my deciding whether or not to relocate. Even if I managed to finally find a decent job here, I am thinking that isn't enough to give me any real quality of life.

I will likely head to northern Alberta. My oldest girl is there, there are lots of jobs and it is a place to start. I don't really have a lot of options.

If I ever mutate into a Douglas Fir, I am sure I could find happiness here.

The only possible reason why you ladies aren't getting boned every night is because Canadian guys are gay.

As far as I can tell, there is no dating culture up here.

Oddly, asking is too much of a challenge for most men

No. they are just "fishing". I think it is some sort of game...caht to a woman, get her interest, ask her to meet and when she agrees, throw her back and resume fishing. Hell if SHE agreed, then there is likely something "better" just panting to take the hook.

Sorry Crayola. I am in an exasperated mood. Don't mind me.

The fishing analogy? It is mine. Thanks if that was the clever thing you meant

Which men is it that I am supposed to be asking out? The guys over 40 are chasing the women u der 30, the men under 40 apparently only see me as an"easy lay". Leaves me with....oh gee...no one.

- No, I never said that!

Where do you live where there are no men available?
- Huh?

Do you ever insist on going dutch on dates ahead of time?
- What for? I'll offer to go dutch but if he wanna pay go ahead. Why insist?

Oh wait... DamnPizza's account been deleted....

@gotapulse. Sweetie, you are 29....only 2 years older than my son. As much as I admire your outrageous optimism, men over 40 never ever get a dose of reality and quit chasing the 20 yos. They just get bad tempered and bitter and set their sights on the 25 yos. That is just a fact of life. Men your age have a completely different mindset....which is great for the women your age.

First of all, there are no assumptions in what I am stating. Secondly, there is nothing false about what I am stating. It is just the facts.
