does everyone expect the apocalypse on the first date?
Posted: 11/25/2008 8:50:41 PM
Not everyone. Every woman? Yeah.

Can a man be too tall to date?
Posted: 1/13/2008 6:48:11 PM
Never, ever, EVER can a man be too tall to date! A man can only be too SHORT to date. Being only 5'8", I know well the vast majority of women wouldn't even consider reciprocating a simple "hello," much less going out on a friggin' DATE.

How do you perceive loners
Posted: 1/12/2008 2:14:07 PM
Wow. When I came across this thread, I cynically thought it was going to be a "let's bash loners" forum. I usually hate being wrong, except right now. I go to movies alone and eat out alone, and it was nice to read a lot of the comments here.

Why Do Guys Lose Interest When A Girl Becomes Interested?
Posted: 12/31/2007 9:47:10 PM
Guys lose interest, THEN a girl becomes interested (or, pretends to). It's a tired game that makes guys cynical, and reluctant to even show interest. And I know it well.

why can't some girls just say no?
Posted: 12/30/2007 10:51:52 PM
Some women would rather make up excuses (lie), instead of just saying "no." The same holds true for men. I think lame, fake excuses sound worse than "no" because they're condescending.

First contact... how many times do you attempt contact before giving up?
Posted: 12/29/2007 8:51:59 PM
I agree with the majority opinion: once. Whether online or in person.

Seemingly oblivious to someone showing interest
Posted: 12/21/2007 9:37:34 PM
I think a lot of men are over-cautious instead of oblivious. If you’re wrong about any perceived “signs,” and a woman throws out a sexual harassment charge, a man is automatically branded guilty.
And, some women act interested just to lure a man into making a fool of himself.

why are some women/people on here for years?
Posted: 7/17/2007 9:46:05 PM
Maybe some of them are still trying to get a reply.

Am I doing something wrong?
Posted: 7/15/2007 12:23:33 AM
A lot of people here simply aren't nice. Don't think that you did anything wrong because you threw out a "hello."

Do you think fate will bring that person into your life?
Posted: 3/11/2007 6:07:59 PM
The easy answer is yes...if fate has made you attractive and rich!

How do you interpret your date not being able to make eye contact?
Posted: 12/23/2006 5:34:55 PM
Well, if a guy is nervous or shy, he'll avoid eye contact. But nervous/shy guys are the worst thing in the history of human existence. Treat 'em like pariahs!

talk online but not in person....
Posted: 10/22/2006 6:39:48 PM
Women here are eager to meet, huh? The glut of read/deletes which I, and many others have received instead of a reply, indicates otherwise. I don't believe men aren't eager to meet women. However, I do believe a lot of men aren't eager to meet women from THIS site.

Should i initialize contact or not?
Posted: 8/11/2006 11:32:52 PM
This guy was USING you, and now you want to be friends with him.
Hmm... Why do some guys act like jerks? I wonder...

Trust
Posted: 8/9/2006 7:31:34 PM
It's in the eye of beholder. Certain people don't trust certain people because of negative experiences. The past casts a shadow on the present.

pretty and rude make you ugly
Posted: 7/30/2006 3:11:52 PM
A lot of women say they like confident men, then do their best to break that confidence.
Maybe some men aren't “natural-born” jerks like women believe. Sure. Maybe they're a product of their experiences, and if that includes rude women…
So maybe the next time a woman wonders why some guy is a jerk, she shouldn’t look at HIS friends—she should look at hers.

:fustrated: :verymad: Why women don't respond emails?
Posted: 6/12/2006 8:44:43 PM
Don't expect courtesy from the discourtesous; you'll have better luck milking a bull. If you send an e-mail to someone and that person doesn't respond, that's a person you DON'T want a response from.

What book are you reading right now?
Posted: 4/29/2006 8:27:57 PM
I just started Otherland Vol. 3 by Tad Williams. It's a sci-fi series I think women might like (not to say women DON'T like sci-fi...)

I recently finished "Old School" by Tobias Wolff, and "Prisoners of Hate" by Aaron T. Beck--a non-fiction book that examines reasons for low self-esteem, jealousy, hatred, prejudice and violence.
