I'm an Honest guy,.. probably TOO frikkin honest. I just don't like playing the "Dating Game" You know, the "RULES" I have to do this, that, ..then this the forums are FULL of the rules. 3-day call period, dinner/second date before sex,.( that one can be streached to months) I guess I'm crude, rude, & totally socially unacceptable...not the "standard" woman's cup of tea at all. But,.. for that 15-20% that feels the way I do... THANKS FOR BEING THERE! I'm impressed with a woman that knows what she wants, and is interested and attracted to me for ME, not how I jump though hoops, kiss her butt, or follow the doctrine of the rules. Those girls threw away that rule book, or left it gathering dust on the bookshelf after they followed it, and got used & abused by the last 6 guys that followed them and screwed her over anyway. I look at it this way.. screw the rules, better to have "loved and lost" at least you have the memories (well,.. there are some I would forego) How many honest & true guys have you lost following the rules? You may never know. I've probably let my share of "good women" go right on by because of the same rules, but, I guess that's life.

They are right here if most ladies would get off thier high horses and look around a bit...and stop living the fairy tale and take reality into account....who knows what could happpen....just imagine that

That's what I was thinking, but didn't want to be the one who said it first. Great that it came from another lady, thanks layken.

Do guys actually want relationships or only a one-night stand? Because that's all I ever seem to be finding.

I'm really starting to believe that they do not exist. After being involved with a lying, cheating dog for the past three years, I have a bad taste in my mouth... sorry guys! Hopefully I can find someone who can bring back my faith that honest, good men do exist.... but I won't hold my breath!

It is either there for them or it isn't....the attraction....Men, like women.....either feel it or they don't....if they don't, they walk away.....Don't grieve for what you never had. We have all gone through this at one time or another...Just move on.....

Yep, we ARE here. It's just most don't give us the chance. It seems girls are looking for honest, decent men until they ask them out on a date and then the games begin. I personally don't want 'games'. I'll ask once, maybe twice and when I get the brush off or an ambiguous answer, I disappear never to ask again. You never know what might be good unless you give it a chance.

the true honest guys???
What fucking world do you live in???
What are you nuts- be fucking happy with what you get- the
way the world is today- tires last longer.

curlygrl~

Edit- the guy below me actually has it right. You need to take some
responsibility when things dont go as planned - there are way too many player
threads- sometimes it is as easy as looking at yourself and seeing that its you-
it was just not a good fit maybe. Lets face it- we all go out on a limb sometimes
to make things work- we hope and pray they do but sometimes they just
dont- does not make the person a player- just means it did not work.

We're out here, hiding in small caves were emasculated women have thrown us.
People need a minimum of 12 hugs a day just to maintain the growth they've achieved. Further growth takes even more. A long time ago, Scientific American reported on studies made with monkeys about this (was given it along w/a subscription by a 3-yr GF, so, not making it up).
OP, it's not you that doesn't get it, it's those U've had Ur experiences with that don't.
You'll be FINE, give it even more time. You already know how to select. Just wait a little till The World comes to You. And it will. God Bless, & oh, yeah, NICE!

But, can we help who we're attracted to?


You're an adult and are capable of making choices just like anyone else.

The OP has honest guys all around her, like many of the posters have stated at length. If she gravitates towards losers, players, and the abuse the comes with it, she has much work to do on herself.

If she's willing to do painful self-examination.

We are all here but no one looks at us as the "boyfriend" type. Once a nice guy approach a girl/woman we are between finding the right words to say (with butterflies in our stomach) and trying not to offend you. The problem with that is that if we get lucky and at least talk to them, Women end up having too much trust in us and instead of going out with that guy, they just keep everything as just close friends. Us nice and true guys have never gone past the best friend rule. But we are the one that have to defend you when the guy you fall for breaks your heart. The normal words after you spilled your broken beans (all cried out talking to them) are I wish there were more guys like you but never say the true words "I want to go out with you". Thats were the honest ones go crazy and the nice ones turn evil. So if you are truely asking why there aren't any true honest guys around now, Take a look in your past and at a few of your guy friends and ask. You might find more than what you think

Hi! I'm from Southern MN and feel much the same as you! I think maybe all the attention and kindnesses we share from our heart, maybe just is too much for some? I feel they kind of like the "cat/mouse" game with them being the cat after we make the first move! Not even sure some like US to make a first move but I just am me, as you are!!

I think the Good, Honest men are all at another site!! haha I think we should start our own site MT girl!! We could SCREEN them ourselves and then make some cash too while we connect Good HONEST men with GOOD HONEST women like US!!

Know you are NOT ALONE...I do think that some males are afraid of the "emotional" stuff that even comes from friendship...I've had a few tell me that...but often they come back later to me ............who knows??!! Read JOHN GRAYS books...if you haven't regarding the big differences AND likenesses between men/women, how they translate things we say differently and vice versa! Mars/Venus book was the first Gray book...he has written other short ones too, and put all on tape for those MEN out there who care to emotionally connect too! :)

Happy New Yr MT WOMAN..and to the rest of you too!! ~Deb

We are actually right here, only that when we come along, you all have been so burned that you put up a brick wall and close yourselves within the 'wall' of man haters.

We are still out here, we have been here the whole time. I always try to reply to all my email. If I start a dialog with a lady member it seems that after two more replies than answers I give up as a waste of time, at 59 years time is beginning to slip away too fast to play games with peoples emotions. Before Christmas up until New year I had a small flood of messages, January 1, nothing. Ido understand your concern, I feel for you and wish it could be much different. Having spent Christmas/New Year alone, I will only keep trying until the end of this month, after that I plan to unsubscribe. So there you have it

I've met as many dishonest, cheating women as men. I used to be one of the type of guys you lament about, then I guess I grew up and since then had a long-term gf lie to me many times and a fiancee lie and cheat on me. Maybe it's payback for how I used to be.....I don't know.
You seem to be very sensitive...don't change. Be true to yourself first, then someone will be true to you. Be patient. Someone will benefit greatly someday.

There are true and honest guys all around. But for some reason, a lot of women keep complaining that the only guys they date are jerks. When I've seen women who said that, I had to agree with them. The only guys they dated were obviously jerks. The funny thing is, there were other guys around to date, but those girls never dated them, or even bothered talking to them.

I would suggest that the next time you go out, you count how many guys there are in the room. Then, count the guys you would probably date. Then go over to a few different people, and ask them what their opinion is of their friends. You'll probably find that the guys who you would date, are called "jerks" or "a laugh", and the guys who you wouldn't think to date, are called "nice", or "great". It might help you understand why you find it hard to meet true and honest guys.

Na porterbrook, Anyone that keeps track of legal ages for sex is often looking for the barely legal. Its called sexual tourism. And that just hits creap factor.


It sounds as if this pedophilia thing has infected your entire life, RedSasha. It isn't good. Even your profile goes on and on about it. How can having sex with someone of LEGAL AGE be pedophilia??????? And why should a mother or father here that happen to have a picture of them with their kids be prohibited??? Do you really see a pervert in ever corner??

It can't, and it's not.

And "sex tourism" is about having sex with UNDERAGED children, usually in thirdworld countries, not Brittish ADULTS.

I personally find it strange that in Washington state a man can go to prison for having sex with a 17 year old but in Virinia (I believe) a 60 year old can legally marry a 14 year old and it's legal. [shrug]

Your serious problems with this issue is going to cause problems in your life if you don't take care of it. (oh, and so you know, it took me about 3 seconds to find 'age of consent' online and the first hit in AVERT... an agency trying to prevent under-aged AIDS worldwide... just so you don't have to start saying I'm a pedophile too. I looked it up just for you.)
