Taking away the free features that brought us all here
Posted: 3/27/2013 3:17:36 AM
Does your employer lure you in with a $50 an hour salary, then cut it to minimum wage a month after you're hired? Just curious...



Is your profession to be on this website? - just curious, if not, your analogy is out in left field. There's never a contractual promise that your salary is permanent - read the Terms of Service. You supposedly read them right? or do you also do the same with any contract? It's a business - naivety about economics and running a business doesn't hold any merrit in these discussions.

What do men really find SEXY?
Posted: 2/2/2011 12:38:36 AM

Girl next door types.
Definitely NOT girls who dress like pornstars.


Yeah, that. Also, a new level of sexy would be if the girl actually had the slightest bit of interest in me, that would be a new one...

Ugh, well I think I'm calling it quits for the moment. I have worked harder on this crap over the past year (officially 1 year this month) than anything in my life and that includes 4 years of college, and still with not even a hint of success. Time to go into passive mode and not worry about it so much before my head explodes. Maybe I'll get some inspiration at a later date because the current date has nothing to offer. Thanks for the tips guys...

Vegetarians - how do you feel about your SO cooking meat?
Posted: 9/6/2010 1:33:43 PM
As a meat-eater, I wouldn't have a relationship with a vegetarian. Sorry.


That's my take on it too. It just doesn't make sense. Humans are omnivores and you are depriving your body of something it was built to metabolize. The reasons behind which are so rediculous I've never actually heard a good reason yet. And then there are those vegetarians who will eat fish too? So fish don't count when it comes to animal worship? It's a big mess of stupid crap I'd just assume avoid all together in the dating world. It's not worth the time and effort or aggravation...

Is Intelligence A Curse In Relationships?
Posted: 9/3/2010 7:29:23 PM
Usually intelligence is measured by people with opinions who don't shut up about them. So that is a curse I'd say. Real intelligence, maybe not so much. Just because you're used to talking and flinging the crap that is your "philosophy" all over the walls doesn't mean you can program a VCR worth a damn...

No strings attached
Posted: 9/3/2010 7:25:01 PM
I suggest finding someone who will take things as they go and not define your relationship with a label the second they meet you. People already have an idea of what they want out of a relationship, so he's got that and now you've both got a label to try and live up to and be limited by constantly. And in my mind, no strings means have sex and go away, which is not that appealing...

how come women initiate the breakup 80% of the time?

Review Please
Posted: 9/3/2010 3:40:07 AM
Well, I'm not gonna lie on my profile that's for sure. It just ends up kicking your ass when it comes down to finally meeting people. I'm not sure where you are getting your statistics but I'm not the only guy who plays computer games in his 20's and that's not a population of people who are completely without success at relationships, and it's not something I can hide, for long.

I keep hearing that everyone is shy, and that I'm not special because I say I am shy. I don't know how to respond to that other than with a stupid smile and silence, which is what you would get face to face. I'm trying to make it sound less pathetic, but it's the case and it would blow up in my face eventually if I didn't mention it. The whole of this conversation if we were talking on the phone would be you talking and me responding with "yeah". I hope that clears up the shy thing, but people will still probably respond with the normal "get over it" attitude. At least that part I'm used to by now.

But anyway, everything you've shot down is supposedly what makes me unique so, I dunno. Thanks I guess, heh...

Review Please
Posted: 9/3/2010 1:48:17 AM
Well, if I repeat something, I like to see it as expanding on something that is relevant. Instead of saying I'm a chicken sh*t coward when it comes to women, there's the 3rd paragraph.

I'm still trying to get outside pictures, a lot easier now that I have my own camera, but no matter what it would probably just be me posing again or whatever I can get in on a 10 second delay.

I guess the main problem is I have no idea what attracts me to a woman or vise versa besides looks and that's seen as shallow to list that in a profile. And I really haven't learned how to BS very well yet so I just use the truth and nothing else, which is why I have facts mostly instead of whatever else I'm suppose to be doing. I suppose I'll just have to get better at it. Thanks for the tips...

Women with multiple cats - sign of mental illness?
Posted: 8/22/2010 3:41:47 AM
I've noticed women with pets are mentally unstable pretty much always. At least the ones that showcase their instability by talking to them like they were children and over-reacting to every little thing they do, positive or negative. She wants something that depends on her to live and won't leave her and she can always rationalize their actions into any human emotion she needs and get satisfaction from that. If a woman has a pet and understands that it is a PET, then fine, that's called being sane...

He flaked on our date...forgivable or not
Posted: 8/18/2010 1:54:21 AM
Personally, I only know a female is interested in me if she is actually INTERESTED IN ME. All this keep it casual stuff is great when you're a teenager, but if there's no future in it, you might as well move on. If both people aren't finding excuses to be around each other, something is wrong, and maybe you should work that out before just calling it a fatal mistake and throwing it away. Maybe try initiating something once in a while so he knows you give a damn about him?...

Yup, when they start avoiding me, forget it. I'm not going to be where I'm not wanted, I'd rather be alone. No one who gave two sh*ts about you would ever suddenly turn you into some sort of stalker by completely ignoring you just for trying to be closer to them.

Vasectomy - what's the big deal?
Posted: 8/15/2010 1:24:12 AM

So you've already had your kids OR don't want any to begin with. You're over...let's say 40, why wouldn't you get a vasectomy?

Seems to me like the smart thing to do yet so many men literally 'freak out' at the very thought of it.


If you don't get the concept, and want to go get one, congrats. Money can't buy some things once they are gone, and they are gone for good. I wouldn't destroy any part of my body or retard a bodily function for any reason, unless it involved my survival...

why do men ask u out just 2 stand u up
Posted: 8/15/2010 1:05:59 AM
I don't know, why do women just suddenly stop contacting you and avoid your calls after being fairly close and intimate with them for a while? One day you're in a relationship and, literally, the next day you're not a part of their life and they avoid you to the point where contacting them in any way would make you seem like some sort of a**hole stalker? Just deal with it...

People With No Conversation Skills
Posted: 8/15/2010 12:57:47 AM
Yup, when you get a short message back it's just the big old "F*ck Off". There's nothing wrong with their conversation skills, they just don't want to talk to you. Consider yourself lucky it's not a drink in the face like you'd get in a bar. Seems like most women I've contacted online give me that. Usually just best to pass it off and move on, no point in wasting time on them...

A great day for America
Posted: 3/25/2010 10:08:19 PM
I wonder have any of you actually looked at polls recently? The country is split down the middle on everything that happens with only a slight tip towards democrats these days which is why this bill passed. I severely doubt it will go anywhere or accomplish anything even if it were designed to do so. It will be met with opposition at every turn and since this is such a big issue more than likely violence is bound to start happening because of it. You can see as much magical fairy tale glittery goodness through your rose colored glasses as you want because your side won, but there WILL be hell to pay, no matter what side you're on...

All I can say is thanks for not embedding any pictures or giving any links. It's a simple case of a mental problem fed by a chubby chasing boyfriend, also a mental problem in my book. Even if she tried to lose weight now it would probably kill her. And a mother no less, making such a stupid choice with her health. This is in no way some new age fat and proud civil rights BS, it's plain stupidity...

School bullies .....What makes them tick?
Posted: 3/25/2010 9:54:52 PM
The schools should encourage fights I think. A lot of them have policies like one fight and you get expelled from the county forever, meaning it opens up a lot more bully opportunity. All they have to do is intimidate you in school, and if you fight back, you're expelled. You can always go tell mommy and daddy, or the police, but you can also goto them every time you need your ass wiped too. Also now that the fights are banned, there's the other type of bully, the weakling who ridicules others knowing they can never be given the beating they deserve. Lots of stupid people making stupid policies today that are making things much worse...

Yeah I would not date anyone with children already, simply for the fact that I wouldn't want to do that to a kid. I long ago lost the ability to relate to children, and have no clue what to do around them even if I technically could take care of one. And yeah I wrote that whole thing like yesterday to replace my "I like blank..." description, so if the truth misspoken is that terrible, I will go back to "liking stuff". Still seems hollow to me but what do I know. The best answer would probably be NOTHING based on the reviews thus far, heh...
