To stay or to go...Conflicting thoughts

My girlfriend is going on vacation by herself
Posted: 4/22/2014 6:54:40 AM
It has nothing to do with self assurance , it is a matter of respect (which is rarely shown these days ) to your s/o . I would think there is a difference between going and participating in a sporting event or laying on a beach where many of the single men passing by will attempt to pick her up , simply because she is alone . Something she knows before she goes there . I think she intentionally extended an invite that she knew he could not accept . How long had they been together ?

My girlfriend is going on vacation by herself
Posted: 4/22/2014 6:41:05 AM
To Opp : you just hit the nail on the head when you wonder why she now has to go alone to a beach resort vacation now that she in in a relationship . She is making sure to show you that she does not need you , you should reciprocate by showing her you do not need her , I would dump her . If you look at many profiles on this site , women make it very clear that men will be taken into consideration last , after every thing else . Only way to cure that attitude is not to tolerate it , or not to participate .

He needs time to think..
Posted: 4/19/2014 1:52:28 PM
To Opp : To me it sounds like he very emotionally distraught , does not seem like he even know what he wants at this point .It is your choice if you want to stay involved , but it will be drama city . Myself I would not be involved with some one who is still emotionally attached to another . If he is trying to friend zone you and you do not want any part of that then it may be best to walk away .

Such profane things talking about male genitals as if you actually knew anything . It is abusive women such as yourself that have made things bad for the rest of the women , why , because men wont put up with your bs any more . As far as university goes , at my age why would I want to take a spot needed by a younger person that still has their entire life to work , that would be just plain selfish on my part . I learn things I want to learn about , aka internet . Less and less men are going to universities , refusing to man up as the feminists put it . This will go the same as every other Matriarchy in history , except social insects , they have collapsed .

Good for you , I have been retired over 5 years . I have no need of ambition any more , or any need to be a productive worker in the ant nest . You think you are the only one that has faced possible end of life events ? You sure seem to want to play that victim card . After all that school you will maybe be productive for , maybe 5 years ?

Feel like don't know how to date and connect anymore...despite many first dates! No genuine openness
Posted: 4/15/2014 7:13:20 AM
Showing that much skin , just exactly what type of men do you expect to find ?For me personally , a woman that shows that much skin at a online site is not relationship materiel to start with in the first place .Also a man could care less if you have a good job or a nice house or whatever else you feel the need to brag about . I stay away from profiles loaded with stipulations and narcissism . Many women feel the need to state they have a nice house and a good job , a little hint , men do not care at all about what a woman has . It seems in reality it is the women that cares about what a man has , pretty much sums things up . Let me ask you a question , with most the women going after only 20% of the men do you women actually think those men are going to settle . Good luck with that .

trust issues or just not interested?
Posted: 4/15/2014 7:08:22 AM
That one little white lie is all it takes to drive the type of man away you are describing . My self for example , I look at things as either they are lies or truth , there is no grey area in between . If I was just getting to know a woman and found out she had lied (any degree of a lie ) , I would immediately terminate contact , a lie is a lie and there those such as my self that won't tolerate even a small one (fib ) , etc . Also by telling the small lie you broke the trust and he will probably not trust you .

To Opp : It is the internet dating environment , women think the next guy will be better . Unfortunately the only thing they will end up with is nothing . The old candy store mentality . I wonder just how many women wished they could go back a few or more men to the one they really wanted . Unfortunately once they go by , that is pretty much it .

Marriage over 50 or when kids are out of the question!

Over 50...Are We Now Invisible?
Posted: 4/14/2014 3:16:21 PM
Seems like the same negativity seen in profile after profile is exhibited out on the street as well . Men learned a very long time ago that freedom and independence are not free , there are costs and responsibilities . I think women are just now starting to realize that , and they are not very happy .

would you turn down a relationship with someone who believes in a God?
Posted: 4/11/2014 9:42:06 PM
They have been using the same savior story over and over . Was used at least 2000 years before Jesus for the Egyptian messiah Horus . Same story , over and over . Now they have the ancient ruins they found in the corner of the Bermuda and the Dragon triangles that vastly predate any thing found in Egypt . That pretty much throws everything out . Those two areas were once dry land .

Who bears responsibility for permanent birth control?

Since the world is overpopulated by around six billion people I would think the governments need to impose strict birth control measures . We are now at the point where we are removing the ground water faster than it is being replenished , very bad .

Please resolve this rules of attraction debate!
Posted: 4/11/2014 6:08:32 PM
They just did some recent studies . You can take a average looking man and put him infront of a beat up car and women will say he is unattractive . Put the same man in same clothing and pose in front of a nice sports car and women say he is very attractive . Seems pretty cut and dried , it is all about the money .

Some how I think it gives people an ego boost for every one to see them blabbing on their cell phones constantly . It gives them the illusion of , look at me , I am important . I find it rather pathetic . But I do not have 5000 rules , mine are very simple . Either I get shown the same respect I am giving , or I give no respect .

Adjusting to the Technology intrusion and the expectation of good manners?
Posted: 4/8/2014 7:09:09 AM
If I was in a situation where I was on a first or second date and the person was non stop on her cell phone . I would get up and wish her good luck and walk away . That type of behavior with a cell is very rude , especially when you are trying to get to know someone . So obviously a woman doing that is not acting in a lady like manner , which to me is a automatic deal breaker . As for myself I do not have to worry about acting in that rude way considering I have never owned a cell phone . I still find it amusing how so many people let a small piece of plastic control their lives .

Two sides to every story
Posted: 4/5/2014 1:41:02 PM
To Opp : The only way I would even consider siding with an accuser when there is no evidence what so ever to back up their claim , would be if they can pass a polygraph test with flying colors . To much false accusations going around these days and the disgusting thing is the false accuser never seems to get any punishment . They should be forced to take polygraph tests if no evidence is found .

Does anyone else have trouble estimating age these days?
Posted: 4/5/2014 1:29:29 PM
I do not worry about estimating age . If I were to get involved with a woman that isn't honest about her age my question would be , then what else isn't she honest about . Dishonesty about anything is a real deal breaker for me . I am one of the few people who don't look at things as being different shades of gray , something is either right or wrong .

I do not think I ever knew a man who had any interest in male fashion what so ever . In this day and age , male fashion is all about feminizing men and emasculating them . I sometimes see picture of male models modeling cloths (that are supposed to be for men ) , they look like little girls .

am i expecting to much!!
Posted: 4/5/2014 1:11:29 PM
I keep seeing women talking repeatedly about not settling . Guess that is what the problem is that women do not realize , men have no intention of settling either . But then we are in a time that basically vilifies men , at least in western society . Keep seeing it most the time where a woman will state she wants a relationship but only when she has the spare time , good luck with that .

Over 45, more mature or decline in hormones?
Posted: 4/3/2014 6:58:41 AM
Bad news : Once a male gets to mid 30's hormone production drops off . Good news : there are dietary supplements to get hormone levels back up . With hormones where they are supposed to be your health is much better and you have much more energy . Those supplements are male only , and no , they are not viagra etc .

In my profile I make a statement about not meeting, etc with any one who shows negativity in their profile . That pretty much eliminates at least 80% of the profiles I look at . Because if they are going to put that negativity out on display for all to see , who would want anything to do with them .

Eliminating Old Man Smell and maintaining dignity

It is not a matter of diminishing scent . Example : I grew up on a dairy farm and I could not smell the cow manure but visitors sure could . When you live with a smell daily you tend to get used to it and then you do not smell it any more .

Maybe it is time he got introduced to a bar of soap and a scrub brush . That was the cure back in the day for men in the military that didn't want to clean up . But then a lot of people in that age bracket worry about falling down in a shower or getting into a tub etc . Get him one of those little bath tubs that has a little door on it , then force him to use it every day . Bet the smell goes away fast .

falling out of love?
Posted: 3/2/2014 4:41:27 PM
Looking at what platypus says the issue is pretty obvious , men will sacrifice everything for their family where women put themselves first before their family . They have a legal system that not only allows them to do that but encourages them to do so . More and more I ask myself if I want to get involved with a woman that was a train wreck for another man and more and more the answer is no .

Yes make everything gender neutral , then you will have men in the states sitting out in the park eating grass like the herbivore men in Japan are doing . Wouldn't that be nice . Then you ladies can continue to complain where did all the good men go . Seems that is the problem these days , women want something that looks like a man but acts like their pet dog .

Banks and the financial system
Posted: 2/21/2014 8:50:35 PM
Here is one example of how mortgages work , the moment you sign the mortgage , that is when the money is created out of nothing . So basically the bank puts up money created out of nothing that has zero intrinsic value . Basically the whole financial system is a scam . They have been systematically removing the wealth from the USA for a long time now . Parts of the country are beginning to resemble a third world country .

mature women with lust based profiles
Posted: 2/12/2014 5:30:43 PM
There is a huge difference between dressing provocatively and slutty , or at least there used to be, but not any more I am guessing . Most these pics we talking about aren't provocative they are of the other type . I do not partake of casual sex , do not want to take a chance of catching something I do not want . Seems women want casual sex a lot more than men do .
