Translate this for me

I'd say more of an options open type of thing , strictly an opinion based on experience . The men out number the women on most dating sites probably a 100 to 1 or more , they have more choices and can pick an choose at will or on a whim . The film the " Ugly Truth " describes it very well ... women say they want true love , but more often than not ,what they want is either unknown to them , or a carefully selected set of venal choices .

First date and she brought along her kids
Posted: 4/9/2012 9:40:44 AM
True story ... Went on a date last Thursday with a woman from pof , although she didn't bring her son along , she talked to him on her cell phone every 20 minutes during the course of the date. Four hours later I'd had enough, especially after she begged me to get on the phone with her 17 yr old and assure him that all was okay ...the boy threatened my life if anything happened to his mother . I can understand being safe and feeling secure , but some folks are truly paranoid out there. Needless to say , I will not be seeing her again . Peace

is it harder to date as we get older?
Posted: 3/16/2012 5:19:27 PM
Really ? As Rome burns and Nero plays , the people show willful apathy and blissful ignorance ... and dating is nearly impossible ...women say they want true Love , but what they really want is a carefully selected set of venal choices , is he handsome ? Is he a Doctor ? Is he rich ? ... no act of genuine love will ever overcome a truly great resume ... Its what we have become . Women seem to want their cake and eat it too . Men ... well men have stopped being men , and those that show compassion and humility are often seen as weak . The art of interdependency is lost in the age of modern electronic devices ... things are too easy ...and the grass always looks greener on the other side . The simple truth is , we are all to blame ... virtue and values have been replaced ... Just a random thought

Why are ya'll working so much??
Posted: 10/7/2011 7:19:46 AM
Ego ... yes that can be a problem . I once asked a woman that I had been in a long term relationship with .. " Would you rather be right ? Or be in a Happy loving Relationship ? " ... Her answer was , she would rather be right . Needless to say , that was the beginning of the end of that relationship . Love requires compromise , that is the only way it can survive .

Should I continue breaking heart?
Posted: 10/4/2011 11:44:56 AM
No offense , but having been on the receiving end of this type of treatment from a woman , let it go . I call this the classic " come here I love you , F...k you go away " game . Lifes to short for such nonsense

Gag me with a spork ...are you kidding me , why would you waste another thought on this guy ? Never understood why pretty, smart women will fall all over themselves to be with a dirtbag ... have seen this type of thing since High School . Grow up , move on , thats my thought .

Heard some one say one time , never make anyone a priority in your life that treats you like an option . Unless of course you wish to be a doormat

Why are ya'll working so much??
Posted: 9/16/2011 5:51:30 PM
Have dogs and cats , ran more miles than I care to remember , swam more than most can imagine , work is just work ...no matter how much you love it , it's a poor substitute for love , the truth is rarely simple or easy ...of course anything ever worth doing is easy. Worked 37 years straight , including 21 years in service to this country ... I enjoy being a retired person , that has never been bored ...ever

Army Mom , I love this post ... I have often wondered why people that want a relationship keep their lives so tied up with work ,activities and responsibilities that in reality the have no room for some one in their life . Reminds me of the movie Cold Mountain , the character that Renee Zellwiger plays makes a very poignant statement about the powers to be that brought about the Civil War " They made the weather , then they stand in the rain and say , oh hell its raining " . I think a lot folks do this to themselves in a way . Just an opinion

Weigh In (figuratively!) on This One,?
Posted: 9/16/2011 9:02:52 AM
I love the profiles that say athletic , then you look at the photos and wonder if going to the Dairy Queen drive through is considered exercise . Average is even better , average what ? Beached whale ? and the few extra pounds are hilarious ... seriously " A few extra pounds ? The site could easily be called PLENTY of Fat , Instead of plenty of fish ... Guess I should learn to drink the Koolaid , lol

WOW ... Lets see , met the one that was a gold digger , met the one that was hopelessly addicted to various prescription meds and booze, met the one that had no car , no home , no job , no money , living off the ex and friends , met the one that was completely unavailable ( emotionally or otherwise ) met the one that wanted to get married after 3 days of chatting texting and phone calls , met the one that has so many men chasing her on POF , that she actually took a phone call from one of them during a date ( go figure ) ... The " One " has taken on an entirely new meaning ...lol...just saying ... some where out there ... ( clears the throat ) The " One " is still looking for me , and I am still looking for her .
