If a B.O.B. is a battery operated boyfriend.

Is a H.A.G. a hand actuated girlfriend?

Many I've dated were out of the dating game as well & tell me they chose to put their efforts into parenting. Worked for me. I don't think it's necessary to say anything more if just dating.

I don't give a rats ass what someone has done or not done in terms of a relationship form the last 5 years as long as their not married, not recently released from prison for murdering or dis-membering an old spouse or boy friend or a complete whack job. I'm more concerned about the next 5 years.

I remember meeting a group at a bar after being divorced for like 10 years and a guy made a comment that made me feel weird about not having remarried since, like it was an odd thing....It's not unusual for being single or not dating for any length of time. It's better to have long stretches alone than multiple marriages or relationships.

Contrary to women's beliefs, most men do not find sarcasm or abrasiveness in a woman all that attractive. I think it's because women DO find it attractive IN men that they tend to believe it is attractive TO men.

Just don't give any reason. If you find a man who you want to be intimate with, tell him

"I was around a lot of men, but none of them made the cut. You do."

That'll be pretty damned irresistible. A man wants a woman who is easy for him to land, but difficult for anyone else.

^^^Exactly. It may be old fashioned, but it says more for a person's character to be choosey than to have a succession of relationships, IMO. Definatly nothing to be embarrased about. Don't agree that women find sarcasm attractive in men though.

The bottom line here, is you disclose what you feel comfy with a particular person knowing about you,

myself, i hav`nt had sex since my last relationship almost five years ago, and you know what ?...the world didnt grind to a halt !, nothing came crashing down about my shoulders !...the good lord gave us masturbation to pass the time in between partners, sure, it isnt QUITE the same hahaha, but, it beats sitting there looking down between your legs and thinking..what the hell do i do with that thing ! hahahaha :O)
