are guys scared off by confident women who make the first move?
Posted: 8/14/2009 6:38:32 PM
Definately was the same way with me, that was when I was 21, she was my first kiss too. It was awesome, so definitely ask the guy out.

Do nerds actually have girlfriends?

I tend to read a lot, so much so that I memorized my NYPL library card number. I'm currently reading The Forgotten Man, it's interesting so far.

I'm Irish American, my parents are both Irish. I speak some Gaelic, my great grandfather was a Seachai back in Ireland. That's Gaelic for storyteller. This was in the days before tape recorders in the 1930s and 1940s. He's famous over there, the county council made a stone carving of him I have yet to see in person, so I'm the 3rd generation of that.

I use WPA2 Personal with AES, and MAC filtering on my wireless. I still reach 10 Mb down /800 up. I have 2 computers hooked up via wireless, and 1 iPod Touch.

Listen and interact, and best of all remember what she tells you.

What Should I Have Done?
Posted: 4/7/2009 4:59:42 PM
I went to a coworker's wedding in Long Island. I planned an LIRR trip from Woodside to the train station and had a cab waiting for me when I got there. When I left, the next train was going to be two hours away. I had planned to wait 2 hours but my other coworker drove me home. But I did have a plan. When I go on a long distance trip, I plan for almost everything, since I don't want to be caught stranded. He should have done the same. He probably just wanted to have a one night stand.

I'm Sean, nice to meet you
Posted: 4/5/2009 6:48:16 AM
Well, I'm Sean. I'm a 25 year old professional. I just finished my Graduate degree and have a full time job in my field. I like to listen to all kinds of music including Dave Matthews, The Decemberists, and DCFC, if you're a fan, you'll know what DCFC stands for. Why I'm here, because sadly in NYC, a city of over 8 million people its hard to find a date that will actually show up. Yes, ladies I've went on dates, only to find the feeling wasn't mutual. Really all you have to do is say you're not interested and I'm fine with that. I tend to be direct and blunt, and I'm not really a fan of James Blunt, he's too blunt you know. I'm quite humorous when you get to know me, I'm going to that POF gathering in NYC so if you want to meet me come on over.

It's a Coffee!
Posted: 4/4/2009 6:35:51 PM
If I invite a woman out for coffee or dinner for the 1st date, I'm paying. I invite, I pay. It's as simple as that. I felt real akward when on one date, the woman from eHarmony snatched the check like it was the last piece of food on earth. The bill came out to about $17 since we only got appitizers and drank water. She was definately in my league but at the end of the date it was a bit weird. We did get kicked out of the place since they were closing but they were polite about it. I felt kind of akward though, I tried to kiss her and she literally turned the other cheek, so I figured that was it. Oh well. Better luck next time.

Is approaching men effective? (Question for the girls)

Yes, that's how I found my first girlfriend. Go for it.

Is a guy a virgin if he's never come inside a girl?
Posted: 3/31/2009 3:48:19 AM
Hymens can break by stretching or excerise, so they are not a definitive measure of virginity. In the middle ages, if there was no blood on the sheets, the woman would be beaten to death. Really sad, to say the least. This is going to appear in my top 5 posts on my profile I bet, but I like a good discussion.

Good Places to eat, and good places to take a date
Posted: 3/21/2009 7:49:07 PM
LimeLeaf - Thai Restaurant - on the UWS. They let you chill out for hours if you call ahead and they aren't busy. Met a woman from eHarmony took her here and she liked it. She never ate Thai before. She was great, Math Major, went to Columbia U, but I guess things didn't click, so I'm still fishing.

Light choking during sex....anyone?

The lead singer of a rock band died that way. He hung himself while masturbating.

plenty of fish meet up in NYC
Posted: 3/21/2009 7:29:09 PM
I'm game to go. How about Public House in Midtown. It's an awesome venue with a quiet upstairs spot for singles, they don't charge covers.

Ladies, would you date a guy who is blind or visually impaired?
Posted: 3/21/2009 6:42:34 PM
I just want to see what you think of a guy who is blind or visually impaired. Would you date them? Let's assume they have a full time job, and are not unemployed like 70% of blind people (that's over 13 million people).

he'll sleep with you, but won't kiss you
Posted: 3/21/2009 6:08:40 PM
I've only been kissed 5 times or so by S.O's. When I go out with a woman, I make damn sure I brush my teeth throughly like 5 times, gargle and use breath mints that teeth whiten.

Tatoos on a women turn on or turn off
Posted: 3/21/2009 11:47:05 AM
Body art is cool as long as it's maintained. A good tattoo shows you like to take risks, and can handle pain.

Is e-dumping becoming social acceptable?
Posted: 3/21/2009 11:27:11 AM
My take is dump them in person, it's much more noble. Take them out for coffee and lay it out, in writing if you have to. Working in HR, we have the Term letter template LOL ;).


Dear Date,

Your relationship with [person] has been terminated as of [date]. Here are your rebound rights, and your 60 day election period starts now.

Regards,

Your ex

I dumped my ex in person, and she went crazy after it, and called me all hours of the night. What has to be done is done. That was 3 years ago.

how to prevent getting hard in bed with a woman?
Posted: 3/21/2009 6:56:55 AM
Just create a mental picture of a babies head on a steel spike. That's an old acting thing I learned in HS. It's pretty gruesome so that should do it.

Stand Up If You've Been Stood Up!
Posted: 3/20/2009 8:47:51 PM
I've been stood up over 14 times. I think it's a record. Seriously all I ask is that you have the decency to email me or text me and tell me you're not coming. I really don't mind. I was about to go on a date with someone and I got really sick that day, I texted her 5 hours in advance, so she could make other plans.

Posted: 3/16/2009 5:21:53 PM
I'm revising my profile and wondering what do women like to know about guys they want to date. I'm looking for a long term relationship but I'm open to dating first. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Sean
