Why are women so picky? it's not fair is it?

Just remember your gonna die. :) So don't be too picky or wait to long.

Ehhh, don't worry. I've learned how to use a fake name, 'forget' to use the condom, and leave the gal with a false phone # a long time ago. So I got that checked off my bucket list! ;)


I have a question: If I die while I have a profile on here, am I destined to be on Plenty of Fish for all eternity?
Your profile will be moved to the PoF afterlife, where all women become virgins and men millionaires.

And the guys will be 3 inches taller, and the women will be a body size thinner... so wait, how different is it going to be??

It will stay unless you leave someone instructions and your user name and password to remove it.

I think it's proper to leave it in your will, to pass along to others -- so that they may cancel it on your behalf, or to write crazy pickup lines to various people in their honor. Whatever is in their best wishes.

Couldn't the men be virgins, and the women millionaires?

Sure, but that changes the whole scope of "who pays" in heaven! And even though the wine is free, the guys are more apt to want beer and some shots before losing their virginity!

Breakfast, already? I like my eggs unfertilized :)

When bringing a gal home from the bar one time, she was kinda tipsy and said she would have to stay at my place for a while to sober up. To relieve her of apparent awkwardness I said, "Don't worry... I'll take care of ya. How would you like your eggs in the morning?" She responded with, "Fertilized!" I responded by saying "I can't be too picky or wait too long! By the way, my name's mexicanguy789, and I already put my # in your phone!"

- No, it's not fair. Nether is life. Suck it up and deal with it.

However, things are not as bad as they seem...... since men usually are the ones asking for dates, simply ask out more women. Get your attitude up and start seeing your advantages as a man, stop dwelling on the negatives and stuff you can't change.

Life isn't entirety not fair either. The truth lies somewhere in-between.

The whole "women are pickier than men" thing is weird to me. A good 80% of the population is married or coupled up otherwise... in pretty even proportions. As a whole, they can't be THAT picky.

That leaves the 20% who are actually too picky, too ugly, or who simply like being single. I definitely don't want to single. If my friends are any indicator, I'm certainly not too picky. So, that leaves me being too ugly. Someday, I'll find someone who can look past whatever it is that makes me undatable and I can join the 80%.

With OLD, men can outnumber women by 2 or 3 to 1 ratio. Depending on age and geography. Women can afford to be more picky and raise their expectation level because they have more potential options.

In the short term perhaps, but the law of averages is going to catch up with you eventually. Online dating, after all, is populated by real people from the real world (even fake profiles are pictures of real people). That's who's out there, nothing less, nothing more.

There's also this cold, hard fact out there that's been covered countless times in the media:

http://www.vice.com/read/youre-single-because-there-arent-enough-men-253

And it's NOT improving. A precised surplus of available men in online dating does nothing to fix the dating pool for college educated, professional women seeking an even keel intellectually and financially.

I have read similar articles before. Unlike Literate Hiker, I don't think having a college degree necessarily means someone is more intelligent or is a "better catch". This is coming from a person that has a college degree.

I don't either, in the least, but that doesn't change the fact that women are LESS likely to date outside of their educational background (and financial situation to a good extent either) than ever before.

I've got a college degree too... and a good paying career... and am generally smart/worldly. As non-existent as my options are, I can't imagine the average blue collar Joe with a high school diploma has got to deal with.

I agree that a lot of women won't date someone with a lower income / education level. That's often because they have the same attitude that LH did. Being smug and condescending.

My dream man would know how to fold a fitted sheet. Other than that, I've pretty much got it covered all by myself.

I think in some cases this is true, but in many others, I think it's just a non-malicious (but somewhat true) predictor people use to try to find intellectual and lifestyle level with their prospective partner.

But, as with most things in modern American society, viewpoints that originate from a kernel of truth, manifest in binary logic... which if you're TRULY educated and/or intelligent, you know that there's most likely a spectrum there. You picture bell curves as you approach things in life, not logic gates.

Aiming for the stars, eh? LOL. My mom thought me how. Should I put it on my profile for maximum appeal?

In my experience, the women that use education level as a predictor of a possible match are more likely to have education level as a preference. But not a must have. They are willing to overlook education level if a man matches most of their other requirements. The women that look down on men with a lower education level are more likely to have education level as a mandatory requirement.

I prefer an educated man because as my late spouse and I raised our own kids ( he was a doctor) education was important for the children to strive towards. I wanted them to be educated. But that is past tense now. Both adult children are educated and independent.

As for if we die are our profiles going to be up on dating sites or even facebook for eternity; I have two people on facebook that have since passed, one a friend and the husband. For the life of me I can't figure out the late husband's password to close the account. Someone mentioned how to go about closing the FB account.

But what I have done is give my son and daughter access ( in my will) to all my passwords so they can close accounts after I die. These are not only financial, credit cards, utilities I pay online, FB, and much lower on the scale, these silly dating sites I am on.

If your dream man can fold a fitted sheet he's probably a Demon.
Just because someone doesn't fancy someone doesn't make them picky. I loathe liver. Doesn't that make me a picky eater? No means I hate everything including the word LIVER.
Lips that touch liver will never touch mine

No doubt we need an amendment to our Constitution:

Let's propose the following.

No, it means you don't like liver. I once dated a girl who just about only liked Italian food, and this one Vietnamese restaurant: THAT was picky.

...or maybe not. From a lot of replies on here, I'm wondering if the concept of picky even exists. I guess we should all respect and celebrate that culinarily speaking, she was boring as f***.

Liver is good for you- like brussel sprouts and broccoli.
