skirt length when over 50
Posted: 3/5/2013 8:09:02 PM
i happily have my own style, always have...
which doesn't include short, short dresses and skirts...only because i don't possess a stunning set of pins.

some of us have more "fashion sense" than others. a fact which doesn't dismiss the ones who don't measure up as non-entitys. all women should dress how they like...and let the wowsers and control freaks among us wallow in their smug self importance.

second date
Posted: 2/16/2013 7:19:05 PM
you would have heard from him by now if he was at all interested...or in a position to do seeing you again.

don't "kick" yourself for not telling him your phone number. he had plenty of time, still has, to ask you what it is.
he can also contact you via email at any time.
that vday message was the perfect lead into any further communication on his part. as he hasn't bothered, to me it is obvious he is not that into you.
if you really want to know? ask him outright.
put it down to more get on with your life.

She wants to be just friends. Is there a chance for more?
Posted: 1/12/2013 6:53:44 PM
you seem to be a smart man.
would you hang around in the chance there may be leftovers sometime in the future?

being a "friend" means just that.

When a Woman Doesn't Return Calls But Continues Texting
Posted: 1/12/2013 5:03:11 PM
does a woman like to be "hounded" with repeated text messages and emails?

i'm with others on this one...
if the lady in question is really interested in you as a prospective date you would certainly know by now.

back off with the contact then call her in a week or so.
if you don't excite her interest by then?
don't waste any more of your time and MOVE ON.
her loss huh?...

Why do middle age women still feel the need to be all kissy, huggy and feeling in a relationship
Posted: 12/11/2012 7:44:27 PM
sooooooooooooooooo amusing...
why don't you write on your profile that you are not interested in ANY public displays of affection?

that should sort out those pathetic, pesky middle aged women who want to kiss or...horrorhorrorhorror and soooooooooooooooo to hold hands, express their feelings or use endearments when others are around!...

you know there are many, many online hook-up sites that will cater for your "booty-call" needs.
i'm surprised that in the four years you have been trying here on pof you haven't tried these sites...or maybe you have bottomed out there as well?

also, if you are soooooooooooooo busy with your marital and family duties as you say...when are you going to have time to indulge in an extra marital affair?...

If a person initiates contact with you on POF, do you expect for them to have read your profile?
Posted: 11/24/2012 3:09:30 AM
i do like to think that most men who initiate contact with me have first read my profile...although often when a message lands in my inbox it's obvious to me that the sender hasn't bothered to peruse my list of interests.

anyways, upon reading their missives it becomes apparent soon enough if they haven't!...

Clip in extensions on middle aged women?
Posted: 7/24/2012 2:11:31 AM
i have had short hair a couple of times over the years...i confess that in the eighties i once even tried a perm...what the h**l was i thinking?...but i love my hair long and will never cut it short again.
it's easy to style, wearing it up or down, and i'm often complemented on how nice it looks.

if you love your hair extensions? wear them proudly and have fun with the different looks you can achieve.
it's certainly no one else's right to tell you how you should wear your hair and i'm amazed to read some of these opinions...even more amazed to think that you would need validation from your peers.

my number one dislike is meeting people who have dirty hair and dirty shoes...i always think "eeeeeek, i wonder how grubby the rest of them is?"...

How do you all define aging gracefully?
Posted: 7/12/2012 6:01:39 PM
pooooooooooooof to that!

why should you be "gracious" about aging?
i've always had my own "look" and i'm not about to change anything at my age...i feel sorry for any woman who feels she must have a certain look as she ages.
where is her individualism and pride in her uniqueness?

my lifestyle will stay the same as long as my continuing good health allows.

my looks i attribute to my positive attitude, my busy lifestyle with friends and family, my thirst for knowledge and interest in the news and current affairs of our world...

and my blessed good luck with my genes!...

^that's not a bad works for me.

sadly, i'm also in the situation of having to be nice to people who i thoroughly despise. i have learnt not to tell them anything of my personal life or feelings, to keep my distance.

be nice to the b*tches, it confounds them.
when these people realise you don't care what they say and are not concerned with what they do? voila! they'll drop right off...and probably concentrate on making some other unfortunate miserable!

broken lcd laptop screen...
Posted: 2/28/2012 4:36:02 PM
my toshiba lcd laptop screen is broken. it started with a few vertical and horizontal lines on the right side of screen with a black leaf shaped icon. after a few days the entire screen was unreadable, it now is a light blue colour.
i am always very careful when handling my laptop and wonder if the broken screen can be caused by an internal fault...and not always by "misuse". this one is still on warranty.
i have found where to buy a replacement screen, if i have to...along with instructions of how this can be done.
i haven't had much luck with toshiba, this is my third replacement laptop in three years!

Getting work in the mines - dalby/chinchilla/roma etc
Posted: 1/20/2012 7:58:27 PM
you'll need your tickets or you won't get a look in.

there are lots of online sites now to help you get started with mine work.
be wary of the sites who state they will get you work with mining if you pay them so many hundred dollars.
try the qld., government one that was recently set up.

my son is working now as a plumber at mt. newman.
the hours are tough but the money is very good.
it took him a year to get all the tickets they insisted he had and then he was thoroughly vetted before he was employed.

it was worth all the waiting.
good luck!...

the "meet me" feature has been discussed for ever and a day!

if you want to know about it?
do a search on "meet me"...or look in "plenty of fish help"...then you might stop wondering about it!

"meet me" may give some users a huge boost to their ego,
thinking "omg, to think that someone, anyone, would want to meet me!"...

but you'd be best to treat it as official pof spam,
rather than make a fool of yourself by eagerly emailing someone who wouldn't be remotely interested in you!...

Posted: 12/5/2011 4:08:11 PM
for me it's become a lot easier.
when i was younger i took a breakup as a personal affront, as if there was something radically wrong with me, and it never occurred to me that some relationships are never meant to be.

i think at one stage i was quite needy, maybe searching for love, any love, before i learnt to love myself for who i am now...and enjoy what each day brings.
i embrace my relationships but never lose my identity along the way....never letting myself becoming completely enveloped by another...ever!...

they're probably jealous of your lifestyle and ability to live your life without the constraints of their religion...whichever it is?
if their "watching" becomes too creepy, get the local police involved, maybe with a caution against stalking?

women in relationships ALWAYS seem to be attracted,why?
Posted: 11/7/2011 10:07:50 PM
that's easy to answer...

you don't want a committed relationship so continuously involve yourself with women who are unattainable for anything more than an affair.
most likely these women are using you, just as you are using them.

you're heading for a big fall when one of these women will prove to be more than a dalliance.

Dealing with POF rejection
Posted: 11/6/2011 5:27:58 PM need to step back a little and not take pof so seriously.

after all, how can you feel rejection so personally when you are being ignored by a complete stranger? it's not as if you're going to run into these people at the local coffee shop.
tell yourself it's their loss and move on to the next guy.

there are genuine people here looking for the same as you are. there's also a lot of dreamers and fantasists...just like real life!
you may eventually find a man you like, who also enjoys your company, but certainly don't rely on pof...or any other instantly gratify your needs.

why would a stripper or dancer be a less trustworthy and sincere person than anyone else you may meet?
