Are they really this active?Page 7 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)

One area they can't keep up is sexually without the help of a little blue pill.

It's interesting how some women like to bust mens balls because they may have a medical issue. I know there are medications they dry out women, There for your not actively getting wet and need some sort of lube..I wonder if it because your not that active and your not taking care of your self, We all age,,


Why do you think we stay active in the first place? I do things now that my younger me would have stopped hours ago. I was in it for me not the other person. Now I get joy giving rather than receiving. I can bet there is more than one man that will back me up here.

I will back you up ^5,, No blue pill needed here,, all I need is my girl, and I can get hard 24/7 I just by the sound of her voice,, I sure wish she would be quiet once in a while so I can go pee..

No I don't workout or ran around like cray like I used to, yet I work construction,, and I put some of the young men to shame,, many have no stamina, complain how hard work is,, some can't even carry a bundle of shingles up to a roof with out their spine bending and crunching.. Sure sometimes my best friend is Advil.. However I kegel everything I climb a ladder,sure makes love making more intense,, so no blue pill needed here..my work out is making love to my girl...

^^^Well that's being active, right??? ;)

I think it's about compatibility. I'm active and it really only works well when the guy I'm with is active as well, or we both miss out on sharing a lot of it together and having a compatible lifestyle.

I think any man that put's that much effort into running hundreds of miles, kayaking, climbing mountains, skydiving, snowboarding, and killing grizzlies with their bare hands lol.....is one brave fellow. Let him have his fun if a younger woman is willing to take on the challenge. More power to him...while it last. As for messaging them? If you're that curious about it try dating one of them there is no harm in doing so.

Not sure what you mean when you say active people are busy trying to live longer and aren't living in the moment. I am always squarely grounded in the here and now.

I can tell you from the perspective of an active guy- if being with you means being sedentary, I would pass.

^^^It must mean she also wants a guy that has not saved a penny, instead he lives for today spending every dime he has.

People who are fit and active are not 'too busy' for things in life. In contast, being fit increases your total pool of energy. You feel better, sleep better, etc.

I'm not sure what folks are doing in life when they don't have time to go for a 15 minute run or don't have time to go to the gym....or don't have time to eat a nutritious diet. They have odd priorities. They had to do what...get in another 10 minutes on the video game?

Its not just that I want to stay active. It would be nice if she would join me on some of my things and would let me join her doing new things for me so togher we would be even more active.. The best way to live a good long life and a good life at that is to keep your mind and body moving and active.

I think they simply want someone who wants to be active with them, and usually notice that they also mention they enjoy "down" time, as well. Personally, I don't want a couch potato, and made sure my profile says that I'm active and prefer to be outdoors on a gorgeous day than inside sitting around. Just my opinion.....

I'm sure I've posted in this before.

But the thing is....
If a guy is attracted to slim beautiful women...who work out....
best be a slim buff guy who does the same.
I mean those ladies ARE picky.

just how it is.

I can all kinds of food and rarely do I put on any pounds.My job keeps me active.I enjoy
riding a mountain bike when the weather is nice.I know a lot of women that go to the gym and the
majority of them tell me it's mostly to get rid of some bad eating habits or because of going out
on the weekend drinking.Not a lot of guys have this problem.

Windchimes;; +1... I dont want to climb mountains or jump out of airplanes to entertain someone. I think nice long walks and the ability to go out and not sit in front of the tv all day and night is great. I also agree if a 50+ man is seeking women in their 30"s they try and act like they are young to entice the young. Personally, I am looking for someone who shares my interests, not a competitor.

Likewise, slim buff guys...who work out... are also picky.

Anytime you come across a woman's profile that says the above, it would serve you well to take a pass. This is a public display of issues she is carrying around from her past. I guarantee it.

Wrong again Stupidoooo.. I was never married to one or dated one.. I agreed with that statement from some of the other women posters..my intention was to state I am seeking someone in between the mountain climbing body builder and the couch potato. I think body builders and genuine athletes should date people who enjoy that lifestyle. As couch potatoes can enjoy others like them.. Some of us fall in between the two. I would suggest you stop trying your junior psychological assessment skills.. you have not once been right about your JUDGMENTS of me

Well Stupidooo.. a great choice in name by the way.. I wonder how you suddenly became the expert on me... funny coming from someone I have never met. I think you are a prime example of why so many women have stopped dating from this site. They get tired of rude and arrogant behaviors. I simple responded to the question with my personal opinion. I have not insulted you or said you even have to agree. Yes, because I say so, I think I am a way better judge of who I am than you are and I think should really avoid making assessments until you have a degree and the the experience to do so. IMHO

It's "stubidooo" .. reading is fundamental.

I wonder how you suddenly became the expert on me

Not you.. care nothing about you. However, I do know the "type"

i think you are a prime example of why so many women have stopped dating from this site.

That could actually be true. You see, I'm actually a guy. I think like one and talk like one. I don't let women walk all over me because I'm on a dating site, I don't censor myself for the sake of doing so nor am I going to bow to female opinions and pretend to be someone or something I'm not.

They get tire or rude and arrogant behaviors.

Opinions will tend to vary but for every one of your type that view me as "rude and arrogant" there will be a different type that sees me as confident, in control, and secure. You would be surprised at how many messages I get behind the scenes from women who follow my posts. Not everyone agrees with your assessment. Imagine that?

I think should really avoid making assessments until you have a degree and the the experience to do so.

I think I have the experience to make the assessments I do .... feel free to disagree....

wow.. I am so sorry you feel being arrogant , opinionated and disrespectful is manly.. I will agree to disagree on that one. As far as your dine store assessments, please leave me out of your uneducated guess work as to who I am as a person. As far as the name.. I like my spelling of it better.

"The problem with hobbies is that they interfere with a real relationship. All my friends who have gotten married in the past 4-5 years have had to cut down on their hobbies to work more, stay home more with new kids, and generally we agree there is a decline in their hobby activity."

The above is all and well and true but this poster is 31 so "all my friends" are probably close to the same age. Add 20 or 30 years to your age and now at 51 or 61, your children are raised and out of the house, your career is winding down as retirement approaches or you're already retired, maybe even have a part-time job - so, there is lots of time for getting back into activities and hobbies. Most friends of mine in the 51 to 61 age group golf, hunt, finsh, quad, motorcycle ride, spend a month or more in the southern US or even Mexico. They also embrace new activities and maybe take courses in things they've had no time for while working, like photography or art. And yes, some still like to follow hockey or baseball or something on TV but we also have down time during our day.

So yes, some Over 45 may well have a vast number of activities and interests and a small minority are couch pototoes - in my experience anyway.

And as far as the above pizzing contest is going, I often agree with Stubidooo as he is not afraid to call a spade an effing shovel. Opinion is just that, opinion.

I agree, everyone has a right to their opinion, however to take pot shots at an individual and make blind assessments is not an opinion, is plain rude. I try to honestly respond to questions with my personal experience, not professional advice. I do not expect everyone to agree with me, however, making personal attacks as to who I am as a person without any personal knowledge is just wrong.
