Why would anyone want to date you?Page 1 of 24    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24)
Seriously, why?
Have you ever thought about it?
What do you have to offer?

Maybe you have a great sense of humor, maybe you're gorgeous, maybe you can recite the alphabet backwards, you might be a good listener or maybe you can tie a knot in a cherry stem with your tongue or perhaps you're rich or just a really nice person???

Anyone brave enough to answer the question?

Independance - meaning financialy and have a car and a nice home
Faithful
I am charismatic
Great cook and love to do it
Love kids and they love me

I do not drink, like most others I have heard about, lol (not to say we don't all have our evils)


Notice I didn't say anything about my looks

They don't. Thanks for completely shattering what little self-confidence I had. I will be sure to cite you in my suicide note I leave behind.

After we meet, they relax, have fun, and can tell i am a good person who they want to see again. Trust might be a factor. I am sure i do not appeal to everyone, and i do not try. i just express myself honestly, and time tells.

Awww, gee...some of you have made me feel bad for asking. I'm even going to be included in a suicide note (please spell name correctly).

Seriously...there have been some good answers. There is no reason why we can't recognize and identify what would make us a good date.

Take me, for instance:
I don't chew with my mouth open.
If I fall asleep at a movie, I don't snore.
I wear shoes on most dates.

I find it interesting that the only serious responses were from women.

The men seem to be lacking in confidence and self esteem. Can't really figure that out because I looked at their profiles and they all seem to have something to offer.

EDIT: TheGoodMan: You are a good example of what I am talking about. Your user name shows some confidence, which is good, then you say stuff like not good looking. Wrong!!!

Now...about that lawn mower repair???

I'll give you an honest one Naughtical...because I'm the kind of guy who, with the last woman I was involved with, ran her a hot bubble bath in a candle lit bathroom, and poured her a glass of wine to relax with in the tub after a particularly long and stressful day at work, while I went and made dinner for us. Now if I can only find a woman who is deserving of treatment like that, and will reciprocate.

Bear in mind this isn't a first date idea...more of the third.

What a question! Hell, after reading my profile, why would anyone NOT want to date me? Seriously, though, I think it's pretty self-explanatory why anyone who's ever wanted to date me has. But to be fair, I think that question should be asked of anyone who has dated me. And I'd be willing to bet the answers would be as varied as the individuals themselves. The general consensus, if I were to venture a guess, would most likely be my sexy style, and that I'm basically game for anything!

Goodness, I suppose because I'm here, single, still breathing and I'm able to move reasonably large objects without the help of a man (some men find that incredibly sexy from what I hear.)

You mean beside the fact that I am funny, a great listener, will go the extra mile for someone I care about, have a decent job, raised my children properly on my own, have two cars actually and have all my teeth and hair, can cook like nobody's business, faithful, caring and also that I'm just down right sexy (in my best fat bastard voice)? Beats me, can't imagine why.

Coz im a lot of fun & i love laughing ! I love people in general,but,particularly men and i can be wildly passionate with the right man.

We'll talk a lot and ive been told im challenging & full of surprises -- never know what im going to come out with next.

Im also happy to do anything/nothing on a date.Not materialistic in any way and pretty easily pleased.

I can talk under water with a mouthful of marbles,but,all in all,i think you'd enjoy my company.

I actually can recite the alphabet backwards. My big sister taught me when we were kids.

That's because the nice guys are tired of having to carry the sins of the idiots, and are forced to "prove" themselves to any woman willing to pay even the slightest bit of attention to their profiles. Because they're done taking 15-20 minutes to read a profile and write a carefully crafted message, only for it to be deleted unread. Because a lot of otherwise great guys have simply given up on the idea of finding anyone of quality on sites like this one because of all the hoops they need to jump through just to be noticed.

Now, as for your original inquiry...I'm honest, hard-working, live within my means, respectful, have a good sense of humor and hold a wide range of interests. I can also walk and chew bubble gum at the same time.

In short...nothing the women in my area are at all interested in.

There is little I can offer some people and loads I can offer to others. There's little sense me listing what I'd consider myself a worthy date because it's not what others will be seeing.

I know who I am and am happy in my own skin...I know how I treat my friends and family...I'm comfortable with the way I lead my life and hope that one day someone will slip into it and share-I'll do the same with his.

SO many reasons, so little time, so I'll list the top most~

1. I take the time think about how my actions and words will affect others
2. Loyal until dead - keeping my integrity is important to my pysche
3. Determined and Patiant, I'm in for the long haul, and I would rather work shit out rather then bail.

4. Intensly passionate - I'm not afraid to feel or express myself, and there is fire in my eyes if there is a connection.

5. Self-proclaimed master at foreplay, and I last a good long time

Ciao

Because I'm flawed in the most wonderful way imaginable.

I'm a walking paradox ...sweet at the core tangy at the edge.
Stubborn with control.

I like being me and I like you being you.

I love. That is all. But I love strongly, exclusively, and steadfastly.

Love on it's own isn't enough, though. I VERY deeply loved my ex, and I totally believe that she loved me, too. But that wasn't enough to overcome our problems. Love is the easy part.

I'm sure there's PLENTY of traits you guys could come up with that would make a woman want to date you.

Do you cheat? If not, that's a reason someone would want to date you.
Are you honest?
Are you dependable?
When you have a girlfriend, do you treat her well?
Do you treat children well?
Can you fix her lawnmower?
Can you check her oil with your dipstick? (Sorry, I guess that's another thread...)
