Women making the first move...
Posted: 9/4/2018 2:05:33 PM
I’d prefer to have the woman make the first move.
That way I’m not in a bit of a bind.

Then again, it’s tricky

In this context

It wasn’t being unreasonable

I think what you should have done was too use
your username instead.

A conversation doesn’t take that long.

It’s called stalling

Move on

It just does, it’s awkward because, I can be a nice guy.

Nice guys finish last

Do not want to be Sith just get the girl.

Star Wars

This concludes my reason

I was being in general

Since the subject women was brought up. It works both ways.

As for job and profession, it was never a competition from my perspective

It is my goal to be in a relationship, not the opposite

I chose those 4 topics that can affect the ability for one to have a relationship if one doesn’t
think through how it will affect their current life and living conditions if one succeeds.

I always look at the bright side of things and live with it.

Anything is possible.

I chose my reason

So far, I have not read any responses on this thread that holding them back.

I’m being technical here

This got me very curious

I’m not new to on-line dating. However, it begs several related questions.

It’s like the former or the latter

1: people are confusing the difference between decision and a choice

2: ethics and lack of knowledge

3: economy and social media

4: insecurity

If one is not making a effort to pursue a relationship.
Why contradict yourself and joined a on-line dating site.

There are many important subjects on here.

If one would to view my profile. I have a logical reason for my profile.

Since I’m almost 40 years old, it just puzzling how many single people
are out there.

Has #Metoo invaded online dating?

I don’t feel sorry for any guy that abuses a woman.

It’s a shame I can’t burn them too the stakes

I do get the impression that it has.

The movement is way out of control. Most of it is very negative.

Yes, there is logical reason behind it. However, it shouldn’t separate man
and woman.

It’s hard enough now to have a simple conversation with a woman
Online.

Should the first few dates be like job interview?
Posted: 8/31/2018 12:37:00 AM
I treat dates like a game of Baseball. Not a interview

1st base/date: introduction and simple conversation

2nd base/date: get slightly personal

3rd base/date: holding hands and kissing

4th base/date: home run

However, if nothing serious happens by 4th base. Or goes to long
after 4th base. It was never meant to be. This only happens if the
person one is dating has to many layers.

It’s like a Onion

Me in particular, I can’t get past 2nd base.

What was it about the last girl you fell for?
Posted: 8/31/2018 12:23:49 AM
It was great till it went south

Let’s just say in a relationship, both need to carry the
torch, not just the one.

Funny pick up lines
Posted: 8/30/2018 10:36:21 PM
Let’s see if this works

This “Me Too movement” is getting way out of
control. How is one supposed to pair up or
dare I say “Get Lucky”. Daft Punk anyone......

Learning how to be happy alone
Posted: 8/30/2018 10:30:08 PM
In a situation like this

Find hobbies that you may like and stick with them.

The world offers a lot to enjoy where one can escape reality.

However, do not cut your social life off.

Profiles that Turn the Ladies on ???

Posted: 8/30/2018 5:28:04 PM
I do not consider myself attractive

However, do to the subject

Self interests and ethics seems to play a major role no
matter how competitive the dating world is.

I chose to live

Not to survive

So, these things don’t really bother me.

The Door Swings both Ways

I have noticed as well from my observation

Women are too particular or they are lying too them selves

You can right a good profile and still get ignored. Even if
one keeps the conversation simple.

There are other perspectives I can get into.
