Add to just about to dump you....

1. Stops calling/emailing as often as they used to.
2. Emails are short and direct and less "chatty".

These are just two that I can think of off my head that my ex started doing when she was getting ready to dump me.

And definitely, if you see some new friends, look out...

Danger!? Let's see:

1. Alone dates no longer seem to be possible, just meet ups with friends as a group.
2. Primary form of communicating becomes electronic.
3. They seem to be overly interested or quick to mention your female friend or friends.
4. Longer dates gone by seem to become shorter and shorter in length.
5. They are talking to mutual friends more than they talk to you.
6. They make little your terms of endearment by brushing them off.
7. Their conversation seems strained or distant.
8. Your ideas for dates don't fit their desires.
9. Them finding differences in opinions with passion seeming to want to cause conflict.
10. They begin insulting you and your likes.

10 Good Sings!!

1. They seem to want more time with you.
2. They remember small things you share and make certain to mention them to let you know they are listening.
3. They are considerate and thoughtful to make sure you are onboard with dates and adventures.
4. They like to be close to you and somewhat affectionate (sometimes difficult for men, but when they do it, you know).
5. They are giggley around you.
6. If you are walking down the street, they want you to be near to them (not in front, back or a person away (the block).
7. They share with you about their friends.
8. They want to know more about you and your life.
9. Although it doesn't have to be a year into the future, but they seem to want to plan something with you a month or so in advance.
10. They really want to introduce you to their guy friends and family.

I think we need a 10 Good Signs post! I will post on a different forum.

Message: Hmmm... good ones... how about these:

1) Sends you flowers on Valentines
2) Tells you he thinks you are the most wonderful person he's ever met
3) Says he feels like the luckiest man in the world to have you in his life
4) Talks about all the great things you are going to do together

Apparently those were red flags that I was about to get dumped 4 days later.... so I would include those on the list of "danger signs" for sure!!


Wow. I guess I don't have anything to say.

"IF you are talking to a potential date on the phone, and you hear the computer keyboard constantly clicking, or far to slow on the I'm,(other than server trouble) Chances are you arent the only one being played. To me it's also rude. I deal with one on one, after all, if I can't give her my undivided attention, I'm not showing her any respect"

I have had this happen to me allot.

Lol, here is a good one. Happened to me today.

You get this email every morning saying happy monday or whatever it is. You fuss and say it sounds like a form letter, so suddenly, you get more personal emails. Lol, until one morning you get this form one again and at the bottom of it, he has accidentally left another woman's email to him at the bottom, forgot to erase it.

I just sent her an email and asked if he had sent her my email, like he sent me hers, lol.

Have to disagree somewhat on the "not looking you in the eyes." Some cultures (mine) consider it rude to stare at the person speaking....

Hi

I stand corrected on that one, I'm the kind of man who will look anyone in the eye. I didn't allow for shyness.
Great counter point!

If you think if all they wanna do is stay in every night, all they want is sex, you are totally wrong.

That's not always true. With what I've experienced, that's exactly what it means. Cuddling leading to sex.

I usually avoid this question if asked too. When I do answer it, I usually only give a part truth -- for example, if I were a doctor (which I am not) I wouldn't say I was a doctor, but rather that I work in a doctor's office.

I ain't gonna be no one's sugar momma.


I don't see what's wrong with asking someone what they do for a living. I don't want to date a striper or an escort. I am an Engineer and I make good money and I don't care what a woman does for a living as long as she is doing something moral. I usually tell my dates what I do for a living before I ask them.
I can see your point about people that are looking for money, but no one borrows money from me before I really trust them and I have known them for a long time.

I have never understood why people get so defensive when asked "so, what do you do?". I always ask, since many times it gives you something interesting to discuss. I am always out to learn and if they have a particularly interesting occupation I may learn something really cool. I have never asked this because I wanted to estimate their income. I assume most don't, though I know there are some who do.

I can't even imagine the nerve it would take to ask someone you were dating to borrow money. I don't even borrow from friends. That would be a definite sign to run screaming!

Top 10 danger signs - Internet Dating Games
Posted: 7/8/2006 6:35:30 PM
That was a good message posted by justskippingstones.

I've encountered alot of the same things she has posted. Nobody likes being alone or feeling like they are unloved. Many singles/divorcees seem to have set expectations of someone they haven't even met! The end result is always failure, like expecting to win the lottery & it never happens. What I get a kick out of is these guys rated like a 1, 2, 3 or 4 and they want a Barbie doll... I don't think Ken or Barbie ever posted a profile - time for a reality check.

My favorites are the guys who have been on the singles sites for years (God knows how long) and are still looking? These are definitely the Internet Dating Gamers so beware!

I've decided to just go out on single dates only... as their "friend". I look at it like this... Would they kiss, caress, talk sweet to or have sex with one of their buddies? Probably not, so if I'm just their "friend" I expect to be treated like one of their buddies.

How about this one. She agreed to take me to have my hearing aid repaired. Turns out I had to have a new one ordered. She said "I'll wait here for you. When I went out to look for her... she was gone! She told me later "I was using another friends car and had to leave" Did not even try to locate me. Needless to say that ended our friendship.

What if a guy you've been dating, on-line only, tells you he loves you. Are you supposed to believe him. Answer that one guys!!!

Hey Donna

DANGER WILL ROBINSON!!!!
Ive had that happen. absolutely not. how can you be in love with Mpegs, text and dll files? I have to be around the woman, and then it's a slow process. it's many things, Her eyes, personality, the little faces she makes, the smell(sounds primitve but true) body laguange, and a host of other things.

Speaking of the scent,Ive found that to be very true with women, Guys try this...when you go on a date, of course be clean, but use little or no aftershave, then on another date really put it on.(has to be the same woman) guage her reaction toward you.
She will be far warmer to you without the aftershave. Aftershave seems to throw your natural scent off, and confuses her scences. This sounds silly, but absolutely true. Scents appear to activate endorphins in the brain. The reaction can be from repulsive all the way to attraction, or anything in between.

Oil derived from the Male elk will drive women nuts. I didnt believe this, until a friend of mine gave me some and suggested I try it. If there ever was a "Love Potion # 9" thats it.

One of the most SURE signs you are about to be dumped is simply a lack of communication.

The phone calls stop
The emails stop
They don't take your calls or your calls go to VM.
They don't reply to emails

Once the communication is stopped it's over.
