Should a woman buy a round of drinks?
Posted: 6/25/2008 1:42:36 PM
If she's quite unattractive, it might be to her advantage to buy several rounds.

They named it after the wrong bird.

It should be called "Sitting Duck."

First date- and he ogles the 22 yr old waitress all night
Posted: 12/15/2007 8:19:34 AM
1. There is a lot of truth to the maxim, "There is no substitute for youth."

2. Be that as it may, your date's behavior was inexcusable.

My guy lied about going to an erotica exhibition
Posted: 11/24/2007 12:12:43 PM
Unless he went to a homo-uro-scato-bestio-sado (and whatever other "o"s you can think of) erotic festival, I wouldn't sweat it.

Should I Date A Man Who Doesnt Want to Marry
Posted: 11/22/2007 7:05:49 AM
If your primary reason for dating is that you're pursuing an MRS degree, then don't waste your time deviating from your mission.

If your primary reason for dating is to enjoy the company of another person... and perhaps something long term will develop... then, if you like the guy, continue to see him and have fun!

How to dumb myself down?
Posted: 11/14/2007 6:51:14 AM
Your post quoted:
"I cant believe im even considering this. I love my intelligence, I love the fact that I can communicate on a level most dont even know exist. My question is,how do I have a conversation with a woman im developing feelings for if she doesnt understand half the stuff I say? They are wonderful women,regardless of intelect a heart remains pure.
Can anyone offer advice to a guy looking for options?"


Piece o' cake!

Simply continue to write to women. They'll see all of your grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors and quickly conclude that you grabbed the short straw in the intelligence deaprtment!

Seriously thinking about giving up on this. site. How bout you?
Posted: 11/12/2007 10:36:47 AM
I didn't get the chance to read your profile before you changed it.

Too bad, because I really like dry humor. The drier the better. Maybe that's why I like British humor. Unfortunately, it doesn't translate too well into the printed word. And... it tends to be missed by those who aren't geared into recognizing it, sometimes ruffling a few feathers along the way.

As far as changing your attitude goes: You are who you are. Your attitude is your attitude. I'd be surprised if you can change it as easily as you can change a profile.

It's better to be yourself and attract a woman who can appreciate you for yourself rather than trying to present yourself as someone who you're not just to make your profile more appealing. The site's called "plenty of fish" for a reason!

BTW, in case you ever find yourself in a movie trivia contest: it was a med student (played by Monica Potter) who was murdered.

Do men ever stop looking for another woman?
Posted: 10/20/2007 7:14:55 AM
Men never stop looking AT other women, but they definitely stop looking FOR other women. (Assuming they've found the "right" woman, of course!)

what good or bad food do you remember from childhood?
Posted: 10/12/2007 8:52:47 PM
Good: Eggplant parmagiana! My parents would remove the seeds from the eggplant slices so there was no bitterness. Stuffed artichokes! The one food I could eat every day and never tire of. I make 'em both the same way.

Bad: Liver and any squash except zucchini. To this day I won't eat either.

Keith Olbermann - any insight

He is so completely consumed by his envy of Bill O'Reilly that he speaks of him constantly, sounding like a jealous adolescent.

How do I tell my date his breath is awful?
Posted: 7/8/2007 12:02:37 PM
In a delicate situation such as this, you don't want to offend the "guilty" party, yet it's important that he gets the message.

Therefore, choose your words carefully, take his hands in yours, look into his eyes , and tactfully state: "I don't want to say that your breath stinks, but you could knock a buzzard off a shithouse."

Since, by your own admission, you're married and just looking for excitement, you both got what you wanted.

Move on to the next guy...and then to the next...

Do readers prefer readers, and for good reason?
Posted: 12/12/2006 1:25:38 PM
I'm an avid reader. I usually have a couple books going at the same time. My current foray into the written word is a brief, illustrated novel dealing with canine athleticism. It's called "See Spot Run". OK, perhaps I should challenge myself a bit more...

Is it possible to fall in love with someone you never met?
Posted: 12/12/2006 6:14:11 AM
I have no doubt that it's possible for some individuals to fall in love with someone they've never met.

There is no set pattern of emotional response.

But, it wouldn't happen for me. Nor, I suspect, would it happen for the majority of people.

Love is such a strong emotion that human contact is a prerequisite.

Why do women use the term can't date guys that a better looking than me?
Posted: 12/9/2006 9:45:20 AM

carpemd,

Not to be offensive carp, but "I" is the subject form, "me" is the predicate form. It is: "I do not date me." Not: "I do not date I."

Most people make that mistake.

Grammar has a tendecy of teaching us good grammar only after we have corrected our misapprehension of grammer. ;)



When one "completes" the sentence it reads: "I do not date men who are better looking than I am".

It doesn't read "I do not date men who are better looking than me am".

Fortunately, I do not date men...period!

B/F, G/F and Partner.....What's the difference?
Posted: 12/9/2006 9:23:34 AM
A "boyfriend" is the significant other of a female in a committed, non-married relationship.

A "girlfriend" is the significant other of a male in a committed, non-married relationship.

A "partner" is the significant other of Ellen Degeneris.

What is going slow in regards to a relationship?
Posted: 12/9/2006 9:18:58 AM
It means you are going to foot the bill for a lot of very nice dates while she keeps a weather eye out for someone who she really wants.

This will typically be a bad boy type who will guaranteed a self-destructive relationship and who the woman you've been wining and dining and being "respectful of" will sleep with on the first date.

Why do women use the term can't date guys that a better looking than me?
Posted: 12/9/2006 9:13:15 AM
Because their grammar sucks.

They should say that they "can't date guys who are better looking than I".
