The phrasing in the food line gives the impression you expect your viewer to be a fussy eater


I chuckled at this, because in my travels I don't think I have ever met more than 3 people who were not fussy eaters. I hope you are right, but on my last 3 dates from another site, I found 3 food allergies (pineapple, lemon, and tree nuts), one wouldn't eat any seafood, one was a vegetarian who won't eat raw tomatoes but loves tomato sauce and ketchup, and the other despised mushrooms loves seafood but hates sausage. There are really only a few things I don't like - steak and kidney pie is one of them, because no matter how you prepare it, it always smells like urine, and anything with a face that is still alive - just about everything else is fair game - except endangered species, of course.

You have a great point about dating someone with kids - it was also my preference NOT to as my son is already a lot of work with his issues. But - If someone were interested in contacting you who had kids, it would be helpful. Then you could decide if you wanted to move forward.

I also agree with you on the steak and kidney pie. Who the hell thought THAT was ever a good idea!? LOL!

When I've read females post that they wanted to date but nothing serious I never thought it meant that they just wanted to sleep around with one night stands. I just assume that they were not looking for marriage or a long-term commitment. You know like go out with someone to a movie, hiking, or another shared interest they have. It takes a lot of the pressure off both the people if they know from the git-go. It is no different than saying you don't want children in your future. That is very important for someone to know if they do want children.

I must say though you're getting a lot more messages than I receive. Mine needs some revisions though. I have made some references like you have with your headline. No matter how brilliant a person's opening line might be, if people don't get the reference it's gone for naught. Not everyone needs to get it though.

That is exactly what I thought, too. There is a category for "one night stands" and it is entirely different. On another site they allow you to choose more than one intention, which also makes matching easier.

I do get a few messages here and there, but mostly just meet-me and visitors. I think I'd get more messages if there wasn't an age restriction on messaging.

I wish I could say it gets better, but I've not experienced it, yet. I think for a middle-aged man in a very conservative part of the country who just wants to find some fun women to hang out with and be social, online dating is just not the right option.
