there is some still out therePage 9 of 11    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
Ya there is still some romantic guy's left out there. I am one of them I will agree that ya we are looking for sex, we all are just about but there is a differents between just looking for it and hoping that the time will be right for you'se both soon.
I am a romantic and it really makes it hard when most (I said most no insult for anyone just the ladies I have met latly) women you meet don't really now what romance really is. Like you said romance is for some how much can you spend on me which is easy for me because when I'm with a lady!!!!!! I have a hard time letting her pay for anything. But I like giving the single rose at a home cooked meal if they have been gone for awhile. or running a hot bath for them if they had a long or hard day. Or just for no reason.
So ya there is still some romance left out there and I hope you do find it. Hell I hope I find someone that will aprecaite those things.
Well good luck with the pond and have fun.
James

Congrats on your success, kerry...

I'm still waiting. I've sort of created a game for myself to see if I can make it to 30 and probably be the only 30 year old woman alive who has never received a romantic gesture in her life. Only a year and eleven months left. Whoowhoo!

It seems to me that you set yourself up with a movie, darkness, couch, etc., but reading your post its so sad to hear youve never had a romantic dinner or a door opened or even a single romantic gesture like flowers.

I dont think its a matter of there being no men out there who like these things for no other reason than they like a woman and like for her to feel comfortable and respected by him. These guys you describe, theyre no more than dogs, though ... really.

What a sad situation for you!

I dont understand why women go out with men they absolutley wouldnt sleep with. Guys never ask a girl out they dont want to...Why do women
But maybe you thought...possibly, well the second date at his house is laughable, you should quit putting yourslef in harms way first of all. I cant imagine taking a date to burger king,...geeze quit just saying yes i would say

Done! I basically just started up a new profile to participate in the forums, but I 've given up on trying to meet anyone. Many women say they want something, but end up with guys that are the opposite, and just ignore (or worse) the guys that are the type they say they want. Some act like they are interested just because they get off on the attention, and getting to shoot guys down.

I think not looking is a better way to go about it. Sure it can be very frustrating at times, myself I have been single for just about 8 years with lots of crash and burns. Try not to let things bring you down. I have been there before and trust me it is not fun. Just enjoy your life, go about things and have fun. Sometime, not sure when, things may fall into place.
If all else fails...contact me..I'll go on a fun date with you kerrymh

kerry this lady is obviously dealing with the wrong men .
I have read and noticed in occasion ...in which i dont follow or i wouldnt be here.
its all about APPEARANCE .
however you want things to go look that way ...if it is just a date ....wear something that says it just a date ..if it goes to the second level wear something more appealign ..not something that says i am miss bootycall , but something that shows it .
Then you would probably wan to let him make the first move ...personally i do feel somewhat uncompfortable doing such things cuz i dont want to come off the wrong way ..so she is not thinking i want some head .
so just follow these things and the sky is the limit babe ....you can be a rockstar.

Sorry,,but reading your negative statements,,,all of them,,,you seem to have been hurt and cannot get past it,,,if I may offer advice,,,lower the pre judgemental aspects,,,because good men will avoid such negative outlook,,just as women do,,,just as your statement of " I likely make more money than you",,,you seem to feel you need money to validate your way of thinking,,,I assure you there are men/women on this site who could care less how much anyone makes as they are secure in who and what they are,,,Your doing yourself a disservice,,,your dening yourself your own happyness,,,

Yes,,I expect you to deny what I have stated,,,yet it means nothing,,your only dening yourself,,,not me,,,

Romance died with the femi-nazi's women's lib movement decades ago. May romance rest in peace.

Well, Peter Parker; I believe that Romance is a notion that wavers and fluctuates with the times and with personal experience - but; it never will die.

Those who want to search for the Holy Grail can manage to find Romance...

That's not funny. Comedy is not a good replacement for romance, imo!

Losing that loving feeling. Not sure in advance of the exact point in time but when it starts to fade you sure feel it. Was in the hanging on stage in my last relationship. Did something that made her angry, it was petty but she jumped it. Came home, a couple of girlfriends were helping her pack. One asked, "Doesn't this even bother you?" Yeah, kind of, she's going to leave me soon anyway. Eventually she told her friends she was staying, wanted to try to work it out. Ok by me, but we were already gone. So she stayed, and now she's really gone. Saw it coming all the way. Some things just aren't meant to be.

Dang, cara, I think we dated the same guy. Only it took me a whole lot longer to figure out he was lying. He was so GOOD at it.

Sorry,,but your wrong,,,real men seek the same warmth and beauty as a lady,,,romance is a driving force for both,,,if I may offer my advise,,,set aside whatever happened in your past,,,to live for the next sunrise is alot better for you as a person,than dwell in the past,,,as dwelling in the past never helped anyone,,,but looking to the next sunrise with pain in your heart,,,you miss the beauty,,,and if one fish's in muddy water,,,they get bottom feeders,,,raise your heart,your eyes,,and look for tomorrows,,,not yesterdays,,,they are gone forever,,,

Everyone gets hurt in life,,yet if one is more worried about being hurt,,,they will never enjoy life,,,BUT NEVER GIVE UP,,,

ya its not "romance" that is flawed but the people who swim in it..

If youre giving up on romance youre giving up on yourself....humans are pretty flawed and thus our relationships tend to be too...

but romance? nah...its all good..and tasty..

It is interesting how when someone wants to give up on romance, dating etc, so many tell that person to not give up, but to continue going through the crap and bs. I say if you are ready to give up, do it. No loss really for yourself. Just enjoy the other aspects of your life is all. What is the big deal?

Man I think this is like a one year anniversary of this thread.
I followed the advice on this thread....so far I have a much heatlhier attitude to dating...and romance and relationships.
I'm starting something like I mentioned in my last post and so far so good, but if it doesn't work out....then atleast I know what I want..and I don't have to just except anyone who asked me out.. I started this when I had no selfesteem. I'm not that person anymore.
I deserve all the romance I want..and I'll get it. And I'll give it too, with out expecting anything in return.....other than putting a smile on his face.

So the point that you give up is I hope never..... but it depends on what you want for yourself.

My theory = never give up on romance. It's like the casino - gotta take a few spins on the slot before hitting the jackpot but each spin gets you closer and closer and closer. It's just a shame sometimes when the romance isn't as exciting as Casino Rama - such a shame. And here I just tried comparing the thrill of romance to a slot win - ha ha ha ha. Okay - bad day at work folks - let me be

The sad reality is that men are NOT interested in Romance or any long term relationship...they just want sex!!!! Plain and simple!!! And it you don`t give it up...someone else will!!! That is the truth about dating in the New Millennium...and the reason I don`t date!!! I really hope you find the exception to the rule...but it is very unlikely



Actually, some men ARE interested in Romance and Long term relationships, and do NOT just want sex!!! "Plain and simple"!! This is not the truth about dating in the New Millennium...but, sorry you feel that way! Hope you do find the one who will prove you wrong...

I love the attitude, and like you there is a man out there looking for someone like you to live out life with and maybe having a family. In the mean time there is nothing wrong with having some fun finding that person..lool.

So at what point you give up on Romance?... Never, not even if you are 100+ years old.

Love it.
