Girls and guys are the same way.. What's the difference? Guys can admit it!
Symptahy whores who get off on being the victim tend to be girls.. This is the problem..

Lose the "few extra pounds" and they'll show up.

and the rebel flag, too many obvious racial overtones. Unless you wanna attract white only, neo nazi skinheads.

Gender bashing threads.....oh how novel, this one should have stayed in the thread graveyard

Bashing genders for their poor behaviors isn't productive. You could have posted "People are Jerks" and made the post less offensive.

The truth is that most people that come and use on-line dating services tend to be selfish and self indulgent. Why do I say that? Well it is a theory based on the fact that people take advantage of the fact that on-line is less personal so they don't feel as guilty or remorseful acting impolitely, rude or selfishly.

So I guess I would say don't be suprised by anyone's behavior that you meet on here. I would also promote that the behaviors you complain about are demonstrated by both sexes equally.

Just my two cents,

warrior You're right some women can be cold. I've seen it and it just stinks. Believe me, I'm sure all of us at times aren't proud of the behavior of one of the specimens of our gender. The thing is that here, especially, the men outnumber the women by a decent ratio. So some women certainly have more choices and it's usually the guys making the first contact anyway. I know it seems lopsided. It maybe is. Men have the candy store/shopper mentality too trust me. Quite often, when you're trying to nail them down to a meet because you're just tired of yapping on the phone they disappear. Call you 6 months later or email hey how are you doing what's up. haha Who are you? THey don't realize in 6 months you've probably had a hundred or more emails and since they weren't interested enough to spend half an hour chatting over a cold one, you more or less just wrote them off. It goes both ways. Everyone gets to a point sometimes, gee, what a waste of time. Darn, I could have knit a cover for an RV in the time I'm goofing off here. But at the same time, we have that one dangling shred of hope that maybe the next one. Maybe tomorrow Mr/Ms Wonderful will sign up, find me and it'll be happiness ever after. And that's not a bad thing. In the meantime we keep plodding along, trying to keep our spirits up and not get jaded.
There are really LOTS of awesome guys here. Many of my friends here are guys, I think they're all terrific. And we all hang together, give each other a pep talk or let each other rant and cry on each other's shoulders and say it's gonna be better. It's great to be able to make those friends here.

i'll say it again, genderising and stereotyping isn't the way to go.
we are all in different yet same places in life; we are human. it doesn't make us better or worse than anyone else, it just makes us uniquely different. with some similiar desires, perceptions and traits. and some different too, soo, now what's all this fuss about?

That's what I'm talking about. My dear friend twlight, love you too, is a great lady, the real deal.
That's the thing anyone can be a jerk. Didn't we learn that in elementary school? Kids can be SO mean, some adults are just taller, bigger kids. Some don't grow up. But when you find those that do, it's great. Finding a terrific person and having a great friendship I realize this IS a dating site, but making great friends is just an added bonus. There are a lot of awesome people here. And there are plenty that aren't. Just keep it simple, the golden rule works real well, I've found. Treat everyone how you would like to be treated, whether they deserve it or not. If they don't at least you can feel good about yourself, because you did the right thing. And who knows, one of those friends may become the love of your life. It happens, really.
I'm always up for a hug, crazychic. Glad you stayed!

kitkat With no disrespect, but women should treat men with respect and love too. It's not a matter of entitlement, it's about humanity. Women who feel or expect to be treated a certain way by men, well that's great. It's not about who treats who better, ideally they both should. Women by their gender are no more entitled to respect than men are. Sorry, that's just how I think. And I don't know about you, but for me I can give it first. I can and I have and I will. It works for me, I love it, I'm a happy, loving person and noone will change that.

advice: never judge all by the actions of a few, or you'll end up alone and bitter

unless one meets all, one can't say all

But one can say majority with facts....So who cares....Personally i gave up years ago....You women on here and everywhere else act like being a jerk is bad or something...So far from the truth...Look what kind of man majority of women go with...I stated it before and i will state it again...There is no shortage of women for jerks...They worship the ground they walk on.

IF you were to invite me SKYDIVING, not a missing truck nor wild horses would keep me fom showing up!!! As for "men" being jerks. I have met afew. But I have met many moreWoman who "jerk" men around. I personaly think it isn't just men, nor waman. I think it is a human thing. Not a very good one. but none the less it is there. I am not a jerk to speak of, but if pushed I will be one. But for the most part I think most of us are good and don't like treating people in a humilaiting way. But sometime people, open mouth and incert foot. Besides that he might of just got scared. And didn't want to admit his fears.

I am a guy and I know men can be jerks but one way men are much better than women is that if a man is not interested in someone they wish them well. Women on the other hand can be petty and if they are not interested in you they soon become interested in you if they see you with another woman . I find that very strange and frankly I do not understand that in women.

My advice is to meet the guy yourself first before you have him meet your parents. No wonder he didn't show up. I wouldn't either. That is way to much presure.

butterfly has it right. Yes, as others have said it's good to vent. The forums, however is not the place for that. It won't help you attract anyone, some people must totally forget that their posts show up on their profile.
If you need to vent, call up a friend or write in a journal. Go take a long walk, do something to distract yourself. When you cool down, then you can post, it's obvious when people post when they're angry. You're also more likely to break the rules and either get a time out or permanent ban. If you're not sure if you should post, then don't. Take a few minutes and come back later.
Common sense and self control go a long way.

Everyone was excited because I am the only single one left of all my friends and guess what...he never showed...


I can tell you the reason he never showed. It was for the reason you wanted him to show. You didn't want him to show because he was special to you. You wanted him to show to impress your friends. To prove that "hey, I'm as good as the rest of you. I can get a man too"
In doing this you have reduced this man to the status of a fashion acessory.

When you can start showing your boyfriends the same respect as you show your parents then, and only then, are you ready for a boyfreind.
