NHL LOCK OUT
Posted: 12/27/2012 4:16:34 PM
I miss hockey so much that I read Brad Park, Bob Probert, Derek Sanderson, & Theo Fleury AutoBiographies.
My GF bought me Ken Dryden's and a WHA book for Christmas. It would be interesting how strong the backlash will be. The players/owners will hand us this 48-game season and it will be like a.............. cold meal....

NHL LOCK OUT
Posted: 12/13/2012 4:54:31 PM
I don't think there will be a resolution until 2013-2014.

In terms of the opening season, I think many hard-core fans will forgive & forget so to speak. They will mainly be happy that NHL is back. Plus, I think many owners will do waht-ever it takes to get fans back. 2 for 1 ticket deals and all types of promotions to jump start the season.

The thing I disslike is many of those late 30's players who will retire that we may have other-wise gotten an extra season out of. In 2005, I was a big Ron Francis Fan and 2004 was his last season. NHL strike for 2004-2005. And Hurricanes won in 2006.

NHL predictions
Posted: 9/9/2012 1:53:50 PM
So far there has been at least one lockout per decade in recent times.
I remember there being a half-season around 1994 & no season in 2005.
Not that many teams are making money. Maybe 5 out of 30?

What should I do?
Posted: 7/1/2012 5:48:36 PM
Well, we have all been there when a girl has us by the balls and Is Playing the field. She can only take advantage of you if you let her. As painful as it sounds, give her one final chance and kick her to the curb for good. Set the rules and boundaries in black and white. I would even write them on a list and put them on he refrigerator. You have to man up and never let someone like this take advantage of you.

How can I improve my profile?
Posted: 6/14/2012 6:18:49 PM
Get 8 or 9 photos. All very different in various settings. And then ask some girls your age to help pick your primary photo. I actually hate mine but some girl-friends picked it out. That first photo decides whether someone even looks at your profile or not.

2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs
Posted: 6/11/2012 8:02:52 AM
Wow, I spoke too soon. Devils are now only two wins away from a cup.
Game 6 will be very exciting. Every play is going to count for something.
But imagine, some of these players on the losing side - it will be the closest to ever winning a cup in their careers. And it may be their last chance to earn it.

What to do???l
Posted: 6/11/2012 7:54:32 AM
You already know what to do before even posting this message. Common sense and good judgement dictate that you are not happy with these behaviors and need to move on. However, I sense that there is a part of you that wants to forgive him and help him ditch his on-line addictions. Well, what ever decision you make for yourself will seem rather difficult. You will have to dig down and have the inner strength to do it. I know that people think that kicking him to the curb is so easy but
I understand how women with self esteem and co dependency issues feel. Time to switch things up. You know the definition of insanity.

Question for Everyone
Posted: 5/24/2012 8:50:08 AM
If you are somewhat selective, you will most likely reject most of the people trying to email you! There are many undesirables (no social skills, perverts, too old, too fat, etc)!

When you email people, I would just keep it nice and simple! Maybe mention an interest! Say a joke and ask a question! All it takes is 5 minutes! If it does not bite, at least you tried! Don't ever get discouraged!

Baffled and losing all faith
Posted: 2/19/2012 9:45:48 PM
The whole "getting to know you stage" is just there to set up an initial 1st date. Don't ever get too exciting about a person prior to meeting he or she in person. It's cool to learn a little bit about them but the face-to-face encounter will determine the relationship's fate. We can't help it. Relationships are built on that initial attraction no matter what else, common interests, etc. If you happen to have a decent time but no results follow,......just let it go. He or She may be flakey and you really never know a person's true intentions. One day, I met a girl who even flat out told me that she was a serial dater and just drinks like crazy. So I foolishly paid for the most expensive date ever,....$150. and never seen her again. It's OK, I was young and you learn a lesson from every failed date. If something does not work out,...just learn and move on from it. Dating is tough,....you need a thick skin.

30+ sex drive/lack of followthru?
Posted: 1/27/2012 7:15:57 PM
Exercise more, join a gym.

Eat healthy foods. Don't eat too much sugar.

Stay young, think young, read books, hike, challenge yourself, don't get lazy

Get regular check-ups at the doctor, if your sex drive is dipping - get some viagra or cialisis, ...pump that sh*t up again

Laugh, go to comedy shows.....don't be such a serious adult,....

Posted: 1/21/2012 8:06:55 PM
I am definitely shy about going for sex on the 1st date. If the girl is aggressive, it's definitely a turn-on. For the 2nd or 3rd date, I usually want to have sex if the relationship is progressing.

Or the Flyers should draft 12 goalies in a draft. Then have endless goalie camps, Ron Hextall Speeches, and Hyposis. Maybe hire some Voodoo Guy from an unknown place in the world and he can transfer the spirit of Pelle Lindberg into one of their bodies.

This is a free dating site. Don't get too serious about the people. They could be married, having affairs, or just out to have a fun time. If you find a great person on here, you are lucky.

If you are more serious about "finding the one" you need to explore other ways of meeting people" like social groups, clubs, single functions, other paying sites like e-h-a-m-o-n-y., speed dating.....

I'm one of the American posters here.I love hockey! The best sport ever. Here, when you are in a bar and ask to watch a game, the bartenders have that WTF look on their faces and then struggle to change the channel to the game. In terms of predicting a final, it's a crapshoot: but I think the cannucks and bruins at least reach the semis. I admire any team that can make it in consecutive seasons with the salary caps, injuries, concussions, etc.

Well, its a long season. Leaves have been a nice suprise. Who are they playing in their last 2 games? 7th & 8th seeds in the east may still be up for grabs then.

The NHL trend now is no repeat champs. I am now pushing for a Washington-Edmonton final.

Is it always cold in CT?
Posted: 9/4/2011 2:00:38 AM
Well, if you plan on moving to the state I suggest joining some social groups such as meetup. In those groups, the connecticut natives are the types of people who will welcome you with open arms. There are all type of groups catored to specific interests: hiking, 20's/30's, 30s'/40's, adventurer, new-in-town, bucket list bunch, etc. If not, join a pool league, soccer league, or any type of organized activity. In this state, the people will generally keep to themselves since they already have their social circles. If you are looking to make friends quickly, the best way to go is the social group route.

Left town without saying a word...
Posted: 9/2/2011 5:04:07 AM
wow, so there was no adequate closure. I think many people, in this day & age, feel they can do what they want. For her, she may have been in a rut for a long time on so many levels: it could be due to work, family/friends, everyday routine, and her relationship. Making a sudden move can be a fresh start for her.

And how old is your ex? I am thinking mid-30's (since u are 34). If that's the case, I also think that 30-sumthings want to make drastic changes in their lives if things are not working at home. They sometimes want to move to a new exciting city, join some social groups, make new friends, and start over. She really has nothing to lose, she can just come home. Hopefully everything works out. Sorry to see your lose. There is defintiely something deep down inside telling her to leave. So she went with her gut and you will see if she was right or not.

Showing Interest
Posted: 9/2/2011 4:55:38 AM
You need to do what-ever is comfortable for you. Don't push yourself outside your comfort zone too much. On the 2nd date, it's perfectly ok not to kiss or makeout or whatever. Just let the guy know that you are interested in going out soon. If he runs away, let it go. Keep dating people and don't be discouraged. I also think you could be an active participant in some social groups w/people ur age of the opposite sex. That way,you can keep meeting people. (Meetup groups - Hiking, Single Dances, Kick boxing club, pool league, museum events, etc)

For me, I am fine for not being too physical on the 1st date. I want the other person to feel relaxed. I ask questions, crack some jokes, talk about goals, and have fun. For the 2nd date, I usually push for some kissing. I want to make sure that I am spending my time with a girl who is passionate in bed, sexual, and that is important for me in a relaitonship. That's just me though.

Relationships & Texting
Posted: 8/31/2011 2:31:52 AM
I think texting alot is OK with your friends (since they know you).If you mess up a message you can explain later.

Like one day, I sent this message to my female friend DANA ..."Stop fantaszing about me." Then later on,my friend DAN sent me a message "WHAT THE F*CK?" and then I realized that I sent it to the wrong person. I was able to cover my tracks.

For dates, I don't text too much. The goal is to meet them, and get to know them. I don't need texting buddies.

Seem to be the Fantasy Nightmare
Posted: 8/31/2011 2:20:39 AM
And another thing:

I found that some really cool dating activities for a 1st date might involve a walk in the mall, going to a museum, minature golf, pool, or running thru a corn maze. (I always know how to get out of the maze but pretend to not know what I'm doing ......). DON'T DO DINNER right off the bat. It makes the whole dating scenerio....TOO DATER-ISH. With the activities I mentioned above, your date will laugh and have her guard down a little bit.

And since you live in Connecticut like me,....If a girl suggests drinks. I say no,maybe later. It's a nice day out, let's check out Gilette Castle or visit the Hillstead Museum .....If I like them,I'll let them have drinks/dinner with me.

Seem to be the Fantasy Nightmare
Posted: 8/31/2011 2:13:41 AM
Hey dude,

I admire you for asking for help. Many of us need it since we are not achieving our desirable results.

One of the most important things I learned from my buddy is to let the girl do at least 60-65% of the talking. Ask questions. Goals? Vacation spots? Favorite Hobbies? I tend to talk too much .....and that can purely isolate a person. So shut up and listen.

Secondly, be careful what you talk about from the beginning. Unfortunately, meeting a prospective date is like an interview. Anything said inappropriate too early on can get you thrown out of contention. Stick to fun topics,...anything negative in the past should be offset with a positive.

Most of all: HAVE FUN. Most of these dates are not supposed to work out. Do some fun activities. Enjoy the moment. Be confident. Stay positive. If they don't like you, screw them. Who cares. If you like them, ease into it. Wait a few days before calling them. Unfortunately, dating is a game. Have fun with it.You are young and have plenty of time to meet your perfect match. GOOD LUCK

well, if you think Edmonton will win, why not bet on them? You could make a killing on the VEGAS odds. They almost won as a #8 seed in 2006.

Last year,at this time, I would put all my money on Vancouver. I'd do it again. Heck, a different team has been winning each year.

no sex/kiss on the first date
Posted: 8/28/2011 5:20:21 AM
I kind of go with the flow. On the 1st date, no kissing or no sex is perfectly fine.

For the 2nd date, I defintiely want some action if our relationship is going somewhere. If not, I usually move on quickly................

But that's just me though.

is it cheating
Posted: 8/26/2011 12:37:33 AM
Well, If a guy really digs a girl....His actions would speak larger than words. He would get rid of his profile in a heartbeat (or at least hide it) and focus exclusively on his relationship with you. Two of my best friends married women off the internet and each of them, learned quickly, "she is the one", and got rid of their profiles. They are the types of guys who dated some pretty bad women before so when a good one came along, they recognized it, and made sure to not mess up a good thing.

If he is a regular seasoned dater, he may keep a profile open to see if there is a better woman out there for him. He basically does not like you enough now to get rid of the profile. It is what it is.

For the West:
I think that San Jose, Detroit, Vancouver, Los Angles will be the top teams. Nashville will be strong.

For the East:
The Caps,Pens, Montreal, Buf, Bost, Tampa Bay, and Phili will be the front runners.

The 8th playoff spot will be up for grabs. Probably NYR. Winnipeg has a tough road schedule with plenty of travel. Carolina lost Eric Cole and added dead weight. Kovi and Brodeur cannot carry NJ, Ottawa and Leaves will struggle, the NYI will start strong due to the youth moment but will choke w/poor goaltending and inexperience. Forget about Florida but I love Kevin Dineen as Coach. Maybe they will be competitve for 2 weeks this season.

What else is there to do.
Posted: 7/25/2011 2:09:45 AM
I would say to have some fun being single. Join some social groups and meet some people. Join some sports teams,visit musuems when they have special happy hour events, etc. Just getting out there builds your confidence, networking skills, social skills, and makes you more comfortable meeting people. And never talk that in-depth about the divorse with anyone new.....focus on here-and-now.

Meeting people from on-line is good but I would not use at as the only way of meeting women. Good luck and enjoy your new life.

Sex on a First Date - Does it Kill a Potential Relationship?
Posted: 7/16/2011 11:37:12 PM
I like sex on the 1st date. First of all, it's pretty fun. Secondly, I know that I am fertile and an alphae male.

And it's always up to the woman whether there's going to be action. Men will always take sex when it's out there. It's like my pet snake refusing to eat a rat.....will never happen. I always try to get to know girls even if the sex happens too soon. In all fairness, there is some sexual attraction so why not see if you connect on an intellectual, emotionally, spiritual...level.

Well, if u are getting the results you want ,...then mention it in your profile.
If not : don't mention it.

For a guy like me, it really does not change my opinion of you. Where I live, there are pole dancing studios. It's really no big deal....If I was unfamilar with it, It would be a good topic of conversation.

I have some friends that drink/smoke - it's really no big deal.

If it affects their judgement in joining a mob , burning cars, and causing chaos in their own city- then they are complete ***holes. ..... regardless of whether or not they were smoking or drinking at the time. I hold people 100% accountable for their actions. My only regret would be missing the chance to join the local police force and beating their asses into the ground.

And the couple on the street during the Riots involved a man comforting a woman who was injured somehow during the riots. It looked like they were making out but he was just haunched over her while attempting to protect her. She might have broken an ankle or something.

It's too bad that a couple thousand people had to give Vancouver such bad press. If someone worked for me that was caught on tape, considering how serious the crime was, I might make the guy/girl do mandatory community service with weekly reflection papers.

My take on the Vancouver Riots was that it was not contingent on whether Vancouver won the championship or not. I think that most of the culprits were planning to Riot even if Vancouver won. These kids needed any reason possible to destroy property and cause chaos.
