No answer is an answer Is that really true?Page 9 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

1. "I don't date [racial slur used for black people]." Is not even in the same ballpark as no response or "thanks but I'm not interested ".


Right. And in those cases, no, the girls didn't deserve that response. But in the case of "You're not attractive enough.", if someone chose to react like that, she kind of deserved it.

I can't see any justification for violent emails either from a woman or a man. Not as an initial email, or in response to an insulting turndown.


I'm not saying a rude retaliation email is right. However people that receive such emails after sending an insulting turndown have no business complaining about it.

Honestly I have yet to have a woman cite my attractiveness (or race) as a reason she wasn't interested. But even if I got a response like that, I wouldn't even waste my time I telling her off. Someone like that wouldn't be worth my time to engage in further.

All this because You can't get a polite "No thank you?"

You ought to know by now that dating is like gambling in a casino. The odds are ALWAYS with the house. Only play with money that you can afford to lose. If you don't like losing-don't play. Find something else to occupy your time.

What these women want, you, nor I, have. Quit beating your head against the wall. Grasp the idea the women can't recognize a good man, even when one comes up and kicks them in the hind end. If you have to argue with them, you've already lost. Put your effort into something else.

^^^Agreed. Why waste time on the nay's when there is Yay's in the sea...someplace. The reason doesn't even matter because it is as varied as the stars!

LOL. I think kicking a woman in the hind end invalidates the 'good man' card.

Women want what they want. The same as men want what they want.

Complaining about it or letting loose with an angry email to the person does nothing to change anyone's mind and usually only makes someone look foolish, desperate, or crazy.
Keep your cool and keep on looking.

Recognize that there may be something in your profile they recognize as eliminating them. For me, I eliminate myself if the profile indicates he wants a slender woman (so many code words!) or no kids (I have a child). I usually send an email, but not always (that depends on their profile and their first email).
But maybe you have something about not dating a smoker and they are or perhaps they're allergic to your dog/cat, totally bored with your choice of music, not enjoy going out to concerts like you do, and feel you are not religiously compatible.
