What have your dates been like so far?Page 1 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
You know, I am sure that I have posted on this exact subject not too long ago ... that must have been another of those mysterious disappearing threads brought about by a surfeit of humour and light heartedness ....


So, to repeat myself ( again ) I have been on a few dates from here, most have been OK , one or two are potential stalkers, and one was the mad Psycho b!tch from Hell

Some have been good.

Some have been boring and crap.

And some have been just plain freaky.

Not all from here but:
small Brummie - nice but just too short
PHD nervous driver with OCD
brown teeth (I kid you not)
seeking limited relationship (i.e. nothing outside the bedroom)
drunkard who was incapble of even getting himself in a taxi to go home (was gorgeous though)
control freak, texting wanting to know who I was with
1 nice guy, though we haven't met again, but we might and we do chat regularly

Quick Exit Phone Call .... ??!
Posted: 10/12/2009 1:23:24 PM
Oh come on ...........

ANYONE out on a date, and their date "has a phone call from daughter / mum / sister etc " that needs them to cut it short , aint foolin no-one !!

We ALL know about the 'security phone call' so why dont folks just say "Look, this aint gonna work - lets cut our losses and call it a night ! " ??

had a few dates/ meets
some i dident like for a number of reasons
some that dident like me there choice no hard feelings ect
but what i hate is when you have had a good time both parties agree to having a good time
then when you get home he texts says hes had a lovely meet /date and wants to meet again
you text back and your text is ignored
whats that all about men and mind games grrrrrrrrrrrr

i have found tho that no matter how polite or pleasant iam to women they dont seem to be interested in meeting up as i never seem to be tall enough for most women on here.


This is the problem with putting all your stats and figures up on a profile, your personality doesn't have a chance to shine through because at first glance your profile isn't saying "tall, dark and handsome". As mentioned by the lovely lass above, it's people having too high expectations and wanting the stereo typical "Mr/Mrs Perfect".

I think it very important to put up your stats as it saves some disappointment when you first meet. If you don't like to date overweight, skinny, tall or short people no matter what their personality is like it is doubtful it would be enough to make you attracted to that person enough to overlook it. Yes you may think they are a nice person and be happy to be a friend but essentially this is a dating site and we are very visual creatures and need that physical attraction.

Why would we want to be wasting our time?

Yes, but there often time when you meet someone who isn't your ideal looks/height/weight wise but they absolutely sweep you off your feet anyway! but here you wouldn't even give them the chance to do that because your looking at the oh so cruel black/white of it.
WHICH brings me to another point.... Why do people lie about things like smoking on their profile? it's not as if you can't tell when someone smells like burn't dog crap!

No... never had that happen to me! Personally I don't have a preference of what a guy looks like but I do want a man who is taller than me.... I have never yet been attracted to anyone smaller... that is why it is so disappointing when I turn up for a date and the fella has added a few inches to his profile height.
