Beards??? What is going on?
Posted: 3/17/2013 3:49:20 PM
I thought I was the only one noticing that!!! Ugh .... and the problem is these guys don't know how to look after all that hair on their faces .. Women I believe generally prefer men who are clean shaven ... But don't stress ... just pass them by as they are not going to change ... and who wants to bother anyway .... All has to do with personal grooming .. and if that is the best they can do .............. can you image what is happening elsewhere!!??

LYING ABOUT AGE ON DATING PROFILE!
Posted: 1/30/2013 3:12:32 PM
I cannot begin to tell you how many times I get from guys .... "Age is just a number" .... when I tell them I don't want to date or get involved with younger men. And guess what ... they are right .. if it feels right for you and for them go for it .... I think there is just too much focus on the age of a person. If I meet a man and he looks older then his age but I like his company .. well I will date him .. IF IT MADE HIM FEEL BETTER by scrapping a few years off ... well who really cares at this point especially with all the plastic surgery that is going on .. women today are beginning to look very weird to me and I am a women.

Cheers!!!

Definition of financially secure
Posted: 1/30/2013 3:00:35 PM
I have read profiles from men who request that the lady be financial secure .. apparently he does not want to support a woman ... anymore then a woman wants to support a deadbeat man .. and trust me guys there are just as many of those scrolling thru the profiles looking for a mark! But in a lot of cases what is written is not necessarily what is meant ... for example if I were to say I would like a generous man ... put the radar down fellas .. it means generous with time and patient with sharing information.

Why do woman think an hour away is too far for a relationship?
Posted: 10/4/2011 5:02:48 PM
They don't want to share the duties ... just like me! I hate driving to see someone .... men don't seem to mind it ... but I want to be more spontaneous ... furthermore ... what if you got serious ... would she have to live in that small town with you or are you prepared to move? That could be a kicker!!!

Can women smell another woman on you????
Posted: 3/24/2010 5:00:09 PM
It is called a lack of desperation! Woman don't want to hook up with a man, and I am sure it applies to woman as well, that come across as needy. Maybe you just give off a more relaxed image and therefore more appealing.

And no ... most women don't want to smell B O .... if a woman's scent is still on you, man you need to bath!!!!

Relationship Advice Needed !!!!!!!!
Posted: 3/10/2010 5:35:31 PM
I think it is really interesting how some young people really think their lives thru .. and others just fly by the seat of their pants and land comfortably as well. From my own experience and planning one must be prepared for the unexpected. It would be curious to know how either one of you would handle a crisis in your relationship. I don't know of one marriage or relationship which hasn't had its moments.... It is good to plan but what is to say that in all your academic progress and planning of the future that your careers enfact cause you to drift apart. I think after this length of time .. you should be thinking of getting a committment from him or moving on. You may be getting stuck with a guy who is a professional student ... they simply cannot function outside of learning invironment.

Definition of love
Posted: 2/21/2010 9:39:18 PM
There is as many definitions of love as there are people.

Therefore I can only speak for myself ..... love is not what you can get from someone .. it is a special feeling someone gives to you, and you feel it .. grab it .. hold it ... and if you are smart you return those feelings!

That is what I am looking for ....... it is so simply! The only thing that people seem to have a problem with ... is they make it conditional. Love is not conditional ... it is given freely with no strings attached .. no games .. (those that do play the game don't experience Love) ...
just be honest with yourself ..... and hopeful find the same in someone you want to give you heart and soul too and with the grace of god they don't destroy it!

I know what you are speaking of from personal experience ... solved the problem by putting my concern in my profile .. PLease read it if you are interested .. and I have not had that problem since. Guys need to be told everything .... don't take anything for granted because they have two brains ... one they rarely use and the one they would want to use more if you get my drift .. so they will try to get by on as little as possible ...

Dating someone who`s a Cigarette Smoker and your not.
Posted: 2/3/2010 6:12:18 PM
Sorry people ...... I am a avid smoker ... love it! Tastes amazing .. my best friend at night as I watch that little flame in the dark! hahaaha ... I think of Betty Davis .. ummm a true classy smoker! And what amazing eyes ... glazed over with smoke as it drifts upward ........... lol ...

I would rather be a smoker then an over eater ......... which to me is a greater health hazard then a smoker ..... now we in Canada have a weight problem almost as great as the States and Great Britain .... maybe the government should be taxing the hell out of fat people .... see how you like it!!!! Trust me it will come to it ... as it is far more costly to insurance companies then smoking ever was. Now that I am on topic of bad things for people .... how about drinking ... kills far more innocent people then a smoking every did .. never heard of smokes being an excuse to beat up the little woman ... or destroy families .... Put that in your pipe and sm oke it ..... !!!!!

Third Date Rule
Posted: 2/3/2010 5:40:44 PM
It is amazing how quickly guys lose interest in a girl when they discover she is not pulling at the reins to hop in the sack with him. I have absolutely no rule about when it would be appropriate to sleep with a guy ... IT COULD BE NEVER ... but we just may like to hang out together .. enjoy each others company! The rest will follow if the connection is there ...

why do men think they can use women for sex?
Posted: 2/3/2010 5:20:14 PM
Yes .. you deserve exactly what you got! You made such an issue about not having sex ... he proved to himself that he can get whatever he wants anyway. And you proved it. Why in the world would he want to see you again! Silly woman ........

He lied about his age...only by two years....should i be concerned?
Posted: 2/3/2010 4:01:17 AM
LISTEN UP PEOPLE!

People lie about a lot of different things for a lot of different reasons! They did an documentary on the subject ... BOTTOM LINE ... don't throw stones unless you have never lied about a single thing!

Think about it ........ I WILL BET MY LAST LOONIE ON THE FACT that everyone at sometime has told a lie ......... does that make you a bad person?

According to all the young guys who hit on me, age is just a number! And they know how old I am because it is in my profile. And I know what they want .... so being honest about it ... does not seem to matter to some .......

So the next time you are a little hungover ..... or too tired to go to work ... don't phone into work and tell em your sick or your favorite Aunt just died!

Chow!

Feeling lost
Posted: 2/3/2010 3:44:19 AM
If for no other reason, you should break up completely with this guy, for the welfare of your child. When you dropped that little bombshell into the equation I knew that something far worse was happening. If you cannot feel good about yourself and your life ... trust me when I say your child is feeling it too. A child is only as happy as his mother! You are the person who brings stability, love and care into his world ... and your first priority should be the child.

In any event the guy does not sound like someone who I would want my child to pattern his/her life after ... think about.

Yes .... I am shallow ...

And I am in a league

1. Looks
2. Position at work
3. Financially stable
4. Age
5. Weight
6. Height

All those things matter to me and it annoys me when someone who looks like Frankenstein's brother contacts me!

New sex robot - Bye bye POF !!
Posted: 1/12/2010 4:28:32 PM
I watched a show on t v about "The worst ways to die"... well this brilliant guy hooked up electrodes to a cows heart and managed to electrocute himself because when he stuck his penis into the large vein it didn't give him enough of a buzz so he cranked up the voltage! Men will go to any lengths to get their rocks off so I am sure they will find a way to create a robot to satisfy themselves.

And women think sex is about the ultimate human experience between a man and woman ... how silly is that?

BF not as attracted because of my weight
Posted: 1/7/2010 6:17:18 PM
I always feel a little sad for woman who gauge their happiness based on what the man in her life thinks of her. Isn't the most important thing here right now your health? And how you feel?

I think he is very insecure. Maybe he is fearful that you will become less attracted to him and you will find someone else. Just because he has blessed you with his attention
does not mean that he loves you
just based on the fact that you are overweight. Do you not watch the trillion shows on television about weight and how this society is so unhealthy because they cannot stop eating?

Tell him to get over it ... Your health is more important then his itty bitty feelings about keeping you plump. Any way what kind of a guys looks at other women anyway when he is in a relationship. ?

My first POF date, such a strange turn...
Posted: 12/16/2009 6:20:29 PM
The games people play ...just from reading the responses from others. Doesn't make any sense to be .. what is wrong with the honest appoarch ... a simple phone call no later then the second day to suggest another date should be more then adequate. If you get a no ... is there any harm in asking why rathering then second guessing yourself. We tend to blame ourselves if it did not go the way we expect... very typical. Just ask ... no harm, at least the person who decided to end the relationship has to give some kind of explanation rather then drifting off into lalala scot free to dump on another with same mindless behaviour.

And guys .. you do it just as often if not more so then women. Simply ask yourselves why you dumped the girl. You will have your answer!!!

Posted: 11/24/2009 4:49:46 PM
I think you should break it off completely with him .. how else are you going to move forward and meet someone who is going to give you a committment. Don't let him control the situation ... take charge and get your life back. Unless of course you want the loser around to make you feel important when he gets jealous. That is probably what this is all about in the first place.

Abuse is abuse ... with or without money
Nice guys finish last because they have no confidence in themselves and it comes across loud and clear!
Women would be more attracted to men with quality attributes if only they showed strength of direction and took more control.... women do not want to make all the decisions or control their guy. Well at least I don't.

I have simply gone out on a meet and greet and been told the life story of the guy and I can tell u I did not enjoy myself ..... I don't think anyone wants to hear about the love of your life that is no longer with you under any circumstances. It becomes complicated I know .. the does and don'ts but from my own personal experience "what happened in the past should stay just there" Who really cares!

Posted: 11/11/2009 2:44:53 PM
It never fails to amaze me how people can treat others so badly and think it is fine. Do parents not teach their children manners. These people who generate no common sense when it comes to treating people with respect and courtesy need a course in how to behave properly in a society that should expect, even demand mutual respect and understanding of feelings. I dislike people who mindlessly go through life do whatever without considering the consequences of their actions. What would it of taken for that silly mindless girl child to explain why it would be best not to have further contact. Would it of been so freaking hard. Look at it this way if your can .... it is her problem not yours ..... sleep knowing that there is nothing in the world that you did to deserve such bad behaviour.

Good luck my dear!!!!

Why do women think it is okay to cut off sex to get what they want. Maybe that is why men think of women as whores .. love is given freely (no strings attached) because you want to give pleasure and received it as well.. I just hate when women brag about doing that to their boyfriends or husband to get what they want.

I agree that Orthodox religions have to some degree screwed up some people when it comes to a satisfying, loving sexual relationship... but BLUESMAN .. find a good hooker?" .. (is that from experience ) would be the worst thing a person could do. What about self respect .. anyway does not sound like he has sexual issues.
