I'll get off when someone gets me off :)Page 5 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Some younger women may get a lot of messages daily in a highly populated area but that would soon taper off.

It is a bit of a myth I think that women are swamped all the time with messages. I feel that like some men, a lot of females are here just to swim by and see who bites. Men have an idea of a perfect woman too of course with little to offer in return very often. So many try to bat out of their league and of course get nowhere.

I just love the forums here, they are informative, humourous and often insightful.

So, who do these "major league" women ever get with from online, then? And if none, why are they here instead of getting with the "major league" guys OFFLINE, if that's where the "major league" guys are?

They DO go a long way to illustrating why dating relationships are so difficult both online AND in real life.
The thought processes are positively mind-boggling.

The "reviewing" is "enlightening"?
Like when someone is told they aren't getting any replies because they forgot to capitalize one of their "i"s and the lighting is a little too dark on that photo of them at the restaurant?
Not quite the word that comes to MY mind.

Sometimes the dating aspect is redundant when the site is used as a social tool. For sure I visit the site on a daily basis to read stuff in the forums; to some degree it's like reading the newspaper, catching up on social blogs, visiting Facebook, etc. We're already consumed by the digital age and so it just forms part of a daily routine.

I also enjoy reading all the dating advice and reviewing stuff in the other forums. Enlightening stuff in many instances.

I've been on here for 3 years, all with a rather decent profile/pictures. I have only had one meet up, and all except that person has dropped communication after 2-3 messages back and forth. I guess I will always be on here until I find someone somewhere >.>

Really? How do you figure that? The regulars who post here in the relationship forums are, from what I've seen, partnered or aren't here for dating (and most often than not, not looking, either).


and i might ad arent any spring chickens either....



You're not exactly a spring chicken, either.

forums are funny



Yes, they can be quite amusing. Otoh, I've read some truly meaningful, thoughtful, insightful postsworth pondering and respecting. And yes, they do exist.

[Quote] and most who post have no life also....

You're quite a prolific poster, given your posting history.


just because of what they talk about....lol...


Should I assume the same, whilst reading the content of your posting history and the context in which it was written? I suppose I would, but I cant. What makes you think somebody with concerns and questions "have no life"? Over-generalize much?



its your call because when you least expect it your dream boat might come in!....good



That's nonsense. Relationships are earned -- they don't sail in or fall out of the sky.

Yes, they can be, from a certain point of view, of course. When I think of terms like 'enlightening' and 'illuminating' I think of genius, 'light bulb moments," and profoundly life-altering. Of course, reviewing is more than a matter of calling out somebody's lack of diction; it has to with reframing a person's mindset in a way that suits the reviewee. It one is open to it, they accept the criticism and change the course of their thinking for everything else that they do. Others just don't give a shit and argue with the people from whom they solicited the criticism, in the first place.

I've learned a thing or two about myself, whilst reviewing, which has been an 'illuminating' experience, again, from a certain point of view.

Dude I disagree with this statement. Many forumnites do have a life, they have relationships, they have partners. There are those as well that are not dating and then there are those that yes, have no life. But it's not all of them.

Just because someone is here, doesn't make them a "career dater". Some just come here because the forums
are funny and sometimes the irony and hypocrisy is something legends are made of.

From what I've learned about people so far in my time on the planet, when someone says that phrase, what they really mean is that if someone lives their life in a manner that the speaker is incapable of appreciating, they conclude that the individual being commented about has no life. Furthermore, those *types* of people tend to be manipulators, and when they accuse someone of having no life, they are attempting to challenge them into defending their particular lifestyle. This is typically done in public, so that the manipulator can assume a position of dominance in front of others.

... just putting that out there.

OP, I gave it 3 years, and about three re-spins of my profile. Now, I just come for the forums. Haven't a clue why women avoid me like ebola, but whatever the reason, I realize that some of us are just meant to be without a mate. Either way, good luck.

ive been online for a few years.
theres too many people who lie, and too many that are looking for just sex :(

Use this place like you would the super market, the night club or any other place you meet people. It is one venue, not the only venue to enjoy a moment or two with a few people or more or less. Whatever floats your boat.
