Living on a shoestring budget
Posted: 6/23/2012 6:44:46 AM
I think finding the match you want
is really all U need.
if ..money is key
is love the answer..?
one is necessity the other is desire.
..some ppl take their relationships to heart..
..some ppl stretch their wallet way past their heart strings
as long as time is on our side
we can

Sincerely with Our Dogs and Cats in our Middle Ages????
Posted: 6/16/2012 8:16:20 AM
this is why we shop on line,,just putting it out there...and listing our priorities~
no judgement..
this is what separates friends from lovers.
it's more than lifestyle its circumstance priorities,,and responsibility.. that commitment to their pet is not abandoned...even when for love..seriously, your pet or me?

dating in the dark .> a reality show where ppl meet virtually in the dark..This reality show ask the question - Is Love Blind? Six daters get to know each other without seeing each other.. interesting concept like the blind fold..we are forced to listen observe and uses our other senses..while on line we can become close to ppl..in reality we do need the closeness to surprise us, enchant us..to what mayb we might have imagined..

Men 40+ and Childless
Posted: 5/26/2012 8:03:47 PM
some highly successful couples rear children together..and everyone in btwn raises children, whether its circumstance or choice not to..is someXs a sensitive topic..I tend to shy away from childless men..just as they probably shy away from moi..like attracts like and to each their own

...the focus is all about the two of you..if U feel a connection, especially the fact that you value their mother and you are confident in ur skills as a parent as well.. relax..nothing negative..take the drivers seat.. kidz shouldn't b viewed as either circumstance or compromise they are a gift just like her..it's going to happen.. believe it!

what senior men want
Posted: 5/20/2012 10:55:29 AM

What attracts you to a profile, besides the pictures?
Posted: 5/19/2012 9:49:47 AM
spelling, words..pic.. I like profiles that ppl gave us a glimpse of who they are, what they want and reveal their individuality.. humour works..but it's hard to take someone seriously if they don't give away a little bit of themselves..

Ignoring her ??
Posted: 5/13/2012 1:13:13 PM
actually some dating (online)advice for women is make the men work for you essentially ignore them..don't over kill I guess with enthusiasm..
not sure if that is an answer..Just don't make pof Ur only venue
..ppl play games in the real world..personally, being up front seems like a shot in the dark, because its out there and you could get shot dwn..but women and I think men do too, to b told ..what ever it is..and that's a risk U gotta be willing to take~

What does my children come first mean to you?
Posted: 5/11/2012 5:45:16 PM
men and women have a different kind of love
children have our love and devotion
we are duty bound
love of any kind is not burdened
marriage = mutual partnership
circumstances and commitment meet
where ever love grows~

Does every girl on POF have kids?
Posted: 5/11/2012 5:54:03 AM

i think you post how you dress in public
how you look everyday
and to some degree give it your best natural shot

..it's your call
dress it up or dwn
and its OK~

LYING ABOUT AGE ON DATING PROFILE!
Posted: 5/6/2012 6:33:27 PM
ok my profile states 49 lol and I'm sticking to it
lol
women who post pics of them looking younger may shock a few ppl..on their first date..don't see the point in that..I know truthfully, it is a culture thing..(weight and age)
we are all beautiful ppl no matter how we look @ the big picture
and that's the truth!

I think it's okay to take a few years off~if U present as such..women..love to be told they look younger, why can't they say it~men want more than to be "distinguished"~let sleeping dogs lie
