op ....$5000.00 a year is a lot for insurance I agree BUT ...if you would even consider paying that ,there could be a better simpler solution for you ...why not hire a Limo and driver for any date night you have ...I'm sure that you could cut a deal with any service in your area and how much would that impress the ladies ? just a thought

I don't really care as a matter of fact I'm dating someone who doesn't drive now...he's a great guy so I don't care why base a realationship on a material thing? besides I love to drive so it doesn't bother me. lol.

If not having a car were a temporary thing, sure I could date someone like that. If he chose not to have one or to not have a licence, absolutely not. I am the type of person who would feel guilty is my bf were taking the bus and I would end up driving him everywhere out of sheer guilt. It's nice to be driven by someone else once in a while as well.

it all depends on the situation. like coco up there said she doesnt need a car all the time, cuz she's in the city. makes sense. and if she lived on a farm she would probably want a vehicle. its a general question, but each person's answer has a lot of different things behind it. i dont think we should assume things til we know the specifics of a given situation. but of course, everyone's entitled to their own opinion

LMAO ... coastergal ... seems like you are up for a bike ride ... let me just save up enough money for the tube repair kit and i'll be on my way ... but you have to get the rack (the bike rack ... get yer mind out of the gutter) ..

i dont have a car .... i have this gas guzzler of a van ... 4 km / litre is what i get out of it ... if the gas didn't kill me ... it's the all day driving ... i NEED a chaufer ... any takers? ... hehe

i was looking at the kms i have driven this year ... i have driven over 70K clicks (that doesn't include the clicks on the my business partner's car) ... i didn't start driving it untill the first week of june ... that's like 84,000 kms in a year ... so combined i think i hit the 100K mark man ... isn't that like driving for 4 ppl? .... someone wanna drive me around?

it's funny to see all these posts about non car owners being picked up/driven around ... what i wanna know is ... is it the feel of the 'taxi-service' or just the fact the person doesn't have a car making him not finacially stable? ... my cousin just moved to downtown T.O. and she sold her car cuz it's easier to get by transit and no costs of having a car (monthly pass at work and home just add to it) but i tell ya that if she wants to come to a family function someone has to go pick her and her husband up and drop them off ... i hate doing that ...although i love to drive as i cannot sit in the passanger side watching the person driving slowly along behind a truck ... so i end up driving .. your car or mine ..

so if it's about the 'taxi' feel or the gas issue ... if the guy drove when you met up and paid for gas ... would you think differently (@ those that wouldn't date a guy without a car)

ok now where did i leave the number for mom's taxi service

Heck, lets see... I've dated guys WITH cars, and it seems like i'm always the one driving or picking them up, so sure, why not! I drive, they buy my dinner.. that would be more than what some guys with cars have ever done.

I'm going to start pretending I don't own a car and get my ass driven around and picked up.

hey coco dahling ... you know i dunna even think of the whole renting thing till i seen some posts and your's on here ... i think that would be the best thing if you got rid of your car to live in the city ... HELL ... i heard of waiting and waiting for women to get ready ... but waiting for 3 hours for a guy to get ready? isn't that unheard of?

you prolly could have taken the go from where you were and ended up at the party in less time

all kidding aside ... i want to know what the women not dating carless guys have to say about what i posted earlier ... it must be the virgo me ...always wanting to know ... or perhaps it's the shite disturber in me

I dont drive myself but i do have my own personal chauffer! The car has tinted windows for our privacy so think about it ladies lol

Seriously though I hope to get my license someday soon which rasies a question i have.

What if the personal is unable to physically drive a car due to a disability would that still be an issue ladies?

woodster: well I have met some people where they wont date me because of my health conditions but everyone here has shown me that they dont see a disability to be an issue.

If you really want to be with someone then you will do whatever to be with that person and not having a car shouldnt be an issue imho.

Taxi is a good option or TTC for sure.

J ... i think you see it as half full cuz that's exactly it when you are looking at your beer and wondering where it went and if you got it half full ....

as for you coatalgal ... i will splurge on a motor for my big wheel with the custom banana seat and if i leave here tomorrow by 4pm ... i'll get to the border by saturday evening ... then hmmm ... i'll be in cali by the end of the month ... shall we say i'll pick you up on the 29th of this month at 7pm? ... i'll try not to be late

swimming .... i think you prefer i swim to you rather than drive ... can i cheat and bring my boogie board?

devil: yeah thats exactly what i am talking about I buy a beer the other nite and its not long before it became half full and it was all my doing not anyone else lol

panaqqa: very good point it costs money when you have a car and if you feel a car isnt necessary to have all the time in your situation the to just rent one or get around by tax or other ways.

you can always get your buddy with a nice car to drive you around and say its yours but my friend will be driving it so that i can spend more time with you baby lol

I have, and I am. Yes, its awkward especially with a 2 hour distance between us but we've been meeting part way.

Up in my neck of the woods Greyhound doesn't come through everyday so that wouldn't even be an option - you can't get here from there on a Saturday, Monday or Wednesday - but you can get to a town within 1/2 an hour 5 times a day on the GO bus which is how my brother comes to visit.

If the relationship is good enough you make the effort - there have been some I have met I wouldn't drive across the road to continue seeing
