Yep your headline will generate you lots of replies, watch for every weirdo and player to make a beeline for your inbox. Quality of respondent is actually more important than number though, dont miss the gem in gravel.


Have to agree with VC on your headline OP. You are being tongue in cheek but not everyone will get this. The increased traffic may have been down to the random pic you had, even I had to look at wtf it was!!!

One would imagine that by the time a woman was 30-35 she just might have realised that men have their brains mainly in their trousers, and not be blinded by hope that the obvious, and experience have not become obscure.

Has anyone looked at the divorce figures, the abused 1 in 4 children, the rapes, the grooming, the psychological and physical abuse. What about the 2 million women physically abused every year, as reported my the police stats????

Has not experience shown you how the loving prince became the live in psychopath, with the constant put downs, till the separation happened? Is life experience counting for nothing???


Ok so let us look worldwide. males have a problem with women, or did I miss a trick? OK, so you are the lucky one are you??? So what the hell are or is anyone on this site for if not groping and hoping for that savior, MR. Right and Bright, smiles and jokes for a time, then the put downs, maybe you like a bit of rough trade?

So how can you find out who is genuine, when you have proved you cannot tell the fake from a fake How can one see into the psycho's mind??? Looking lustfully at his eyes??? Well where has that got anyone to date??? Back in the circus, with the performing fakes of course.

One can tell what a person is like from the way a person eats a meal, or has a drink. Its soooo simple if you use your eyes and not the candle of hope. You can tell his insecurity index, his greed index, how selfish he is, and lots more. But why bother as the drink hits, the warmth starts, the banter, adn flirting starts, and the trip on another SKYLARK is accompanied by the piped music.

So why not have fun for a time, and then realise you wasted your time yet again....... Males in general have a problem with women, remember the stats, they are shocking, and you will never believe it, but I have asked males if they have ever known a rapist, child abuser, violent women beater, not one in thousands I have asked has ever know one either directly or indirectly. Thus the average ,ale has a propensity to be economical with the truth, as in pathological liars, but that is my experience. I treat them for what they are, one earns respect, not demands it, so what is your experience, or is this site full of lucky women, striking the decent males every time????

Mabbot - you're right to be wary, always meet in a public place where there are other people about - that does not mean a car park. I am always happy to give someone my car registration number and mobile number beforehand.

You don't get the ability to edit until your millionth post or so.

Back to the topic - some men on these sites are just here for sex. I am one of those not interested in one night stands, it is not just a female thing, been there, done that and no longer interested.

Not sure how not having a pic would guarantee the messages/ approaches were more genuine.


Definitely doesn't, When I tried that approach, I still got the same ridiculous kind of messages.

Also agree with being proactive but be mindful of the kind or guy you like to go for. I always go for wrong uns, cos that's what I like so I've only got myself to blame when I pick out the bad boys.

And that if the sex is good.....and the chemistry is there....and the right buttons are pushed...and the right boxes are ticked....then he might just want to have sex with that person for the rest of his life


Er, seems someone was stating the obvious here. Also I don't think this just applies to men!! Having sex with the same person for the rest of time and no one else seems very unappealing!!

It isn't, you just haven't met the right person yet. I was married for 18 years, and trust me, sex with the same person works as long as other boxes are also being ticked


Expect you are right Poll. It's not so much the sex that might be the problem, it's the other boxes that also need to be ticked ;-)
