Name the number one thing keeping you single..Page 6 of 32    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32)
I wouldn't necessarily say that. Some men prefer women with some body on them - I do - but I guess if you're very overweight you should try to do something about it. The good news is, it's not something you can't change, like eye color or whatever, so there's always hope.

I'm not single. But I would like to contribute. Maybe it will help someone.

I think that many people remain single because they do not honestly know and accept themselves and (more importantly) they don't know what they want in a partner. Your chances of getting from A to B increase significantly when you know where A and B are.

I think that when people are truly comfortable with themselves they become more attractive. And when they know what they want they naturally position themselves to find what they are looking for. Isn't it funny how when you focus on you and stop trying so hard to find that "right person" that right person finds you.

Happens all the time.

Davidspnk has a great point. I have been doing just that the past few months...focusing on myself and doing my own thing. I have friends up on my profile for that very reason, I do not want to search anymore. I do get approached more and more now...mostly by Dweebs and Dorks, with a few honey's thrown in that are looking to dip their wick, but like the gal above, I probably have F***off written on my forehead too.
I even had this conversation with another gal fish a couple weeks ago. We seem to be the same when it comes to letting people get close to us. I can appear standoffish at a party or mixer, but that is just a facade. Don't let the F***off sign fool you. It can come down!

That and the fact that when I do meet someone, I choose the wrong man who has no time for me, is terrible at communicating, and breaks dates!

Well I don't know what keeps the rest of you single !
But for me it is being picky on who I would consider dating !
And I will not and never will change who I would consider dating !
And no I will never lower my standards just to get away from being single.
And those so called bad boys all the ladies seem attracted too are just doing what ever it takes to get what they want from the ladies .
And most bad boys are only looking for short time hot fun and then move on to the next one!LOL
And then we hear the ladies complain or **** about how bad they were treated by the bad boy ! LOL

Thats why I have my standards & also why I can smile and have a chuckle when I hear women complain about the bad boy who tossed them away for someone new !LOL

It is very hard to name one thing that is keeping me single. For one thing I am almost six feet tall and because of that have had very few people interested in me. I go to the single events and believe it or not am usually one of the tallest females in the place. At one point I thought I was too picky, but then I realized I have had noone to pick from. I have also been accused of being too nice, that just puts a smile on my face to think that doesn't make sense. I know I am looking for someone who is caring, understanding, loving, and the list goes on. I think the last reason for me is that I am not into one night stands, I want to be loved for me and to do that you got to get to know me longer then a few hours.

What keeps me single, is the lack of good quality men out there. They are mean and ignorant, and alot of them don't have a clue how to get along with and treat, and interact with a woman. They need to take classes on it, literally!

There are some good men out there, I just haven't met too many of them, so I am discouraged and stay busy doing other things in my life. Life goes on.

Well most important thing keeping me single is very simple !
99% of every woman I have chatted with online do nothing but tell lies !
Plus they couldn't speak the truth if they could be struck with lightening !
But thats kinda the norm now adays !
Yep okay for the ladies to play mind games but its never right for a guy to not speak the truth !LOL
Gutt the fish or toss it over board would you !LOL

Note to Lonely not desperate !
Hey when I hit 65 and still single I won't be wondering at all.
Your loss ladies is stil my gain !
As if I need a woman by then for anything sexual I can just buy her services !LOL
And I'll use viagra if it is needed by then.
Other then that it does not matter at age 65 or age 35 if women want to play the head games I'll just say sorry bye bye not interested .

As for me being picky well sorry not gonna change so maybe wait till I am dead ladies and then anyone of you can date me !HAHAHAHA

I have had some insight into why some people may be single!
I have made the effort to invite some people to a weekly meet and greet in their area and they didn't even take a moment to respond. One didn't even bother opening the message - the title was 'Event Invitation' - guess they don't bother getting out to meet people face to face! There was only one gentleman out of about 20 that even took a moment to say thanks for the heads up on the event!
If you sit at home and don't make the effort to mingle with other singles - then how do you get to know people?
If you don't respond or open messages how do you communicate with others to find out id there is a match out there for you?
Being proactive gets results!
I was lucky enough to meet my husband at a POF dance! We both made the effort to get out and meet others - we often went on our own to events - simply to meet new faces! We even remain to make friends and attend events to socialize! My husband is new to Canada and I have lost a lot of friends (passed away) - so we want to build new friendships!
Being interested in other people and being polite enough to chat - might get you what you desire!

Attention !
Theses so called singles events are okay ! But !
When it is the same people attending all the time and very few if any new people attending then why is it worth the time & efford to keep gong to these ??
It is no better then gong out to normal bar nights out and same chances of meeting someone . And I personaly don't want to go out to a bar to meet someone as most times its a one time thing you'll meet someone and at best its not for a longtime down the road .


So if one has to be a bar fly to date someone thats not what I am seekng at all!
So if I stay single my entire life its your loss ladies not mine ! I have better things to do then hang out at a bar waiting for you to get nerve enough in your belly to come chat !
And drinking to get some nerve up to come chat won't be good in my match list book either . But I will say if you want me BE REAL &GET REAL LADIES !
Or good luck !

Well firmbear8 - all the events I go to seem to have the same people too and infact they still do - but hey one out of the 30 or 40 I have attended - MY HUSBAND WAS THERE!! Ya never know when or where that special someone will come into your life - but you can bet your life on the fact that they won't come knocking at your door!!
The reason I invited people to this event was to bring in new blood - to mix things up and to have some new experiences - but hey I tried!!

I think I'm grumpy today.


Yes, you are. That's an assumption. So is the assumption that it is a bunch of feminist BS.

It is very easy for a man to leave a pregnancy, but I don't see very many women doing it. The number of babies out there that are unpaid for by men compared to women, is a ratio probably preferred not to be seen by men.

Women also have to be judged by other women. Men don't generally judge each other.

On topic, among the top 10 reasons that I am still single, is my ID. : ) For now I am content.

I am the reason I am still single.
I am the reason I don't date all that often.
I am the reason women do not date me.
I am the reason I don't think I will be in a relationship any time soon.
I am the reason women stop showing interest in me.
I am the reason women scratch their heads and wonder, "WTF?"


Some posters should stop pretending they are not the reason they are single and maybe things will change.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The above line kinda discribes every woman on pof !
Seems if they date some guy it must be approved by all the other ladies she knows on pof or she won't date him let alone even meet him for a first meet!

And we all know not any of you ladies is gonna meet me for a first date ! As it would go against all your lady friends wishes as firmbear8 is not anyone a good respectable single female should be dating !! But yet me being 52 I am being told I should date any lady who'd date me and I should not worry what she looks like ! LOL
Get real if I am not good enough for you to make contact with or to meet for a first date then theres no guy on any singles site worth any lady taking interest in.
As I want someone who answers to themself and not to their so called best friends.
Yes guys do not judge other guys on who they should or should not date.
So when are the women gonna stop being little girls and grow up and act like real adults on POF ??

Now, let's talk about those outdated, and aged photos. Come on now. Don't you think WE WOMEN will NOTICE, upon meeting you, that you DON'T quite look like "THAT", anymore? As in "quite a few pounds heavier"! And, how about those that claim to be "non smokers" on their profiles, only to "light one up" during the meeting???? These are the facts, and they speak for themselves. From MY OWN personal experiences. It's HIGH TIME some integrity/maturity was "injected" into this endeavour! Let's NOT waste any more time, guys: MINE OR YOURS












Man this made me laugh for sure ! hey come now alot of you ladies have not posted a new pic or recent pic of you up in your profiles either. And some people don't even post a pic up yet you tend to figure your something hot & specal.
Hey no pic then no reply from me either as first email contact or a return email.
And it si not just guys on here looking for a quick roll in the hay ! I could probbly list a few colums of women's profiles in here a mile or two long also only here for the quick roll in the hay or qiuck lube & go !LOL
Thats why women don't reply to me as if yuor not real then don't bother !
Fakes don't post their pics and if they do there not recent ones. Just friends or just datin people are also what I call fakes .
Or in short to me just datin or just friends is what I call a waste of time people.
Reall people want more then just a hot one nighter !
