Honest question
Posted: 2/14/2008 3:31:22 PM

Just wondering if there might be a threshold of attractiveness one has to make it over to make PoF reasonably productive.
If you're Antonio Banderas or Johnny Depp, you're probably good - otherwise, just pile in with the rest of us and pray!

IMPORTANT reminder for everyone lonely on Valentine's Day!
Posted: 2/14/2008 3:28:24 PM

unless you like those conversation hearts
I'm not even sure those are technically food!

I'd just put those in the pile with the marshmallow peeps as "things that probably won't kill you if you eat them, marketed as candy".

so I finally grabbed my balls and asked my coworker out..

*cough*

Reading that really just gave me this vision of you walking up to her, grabbing your crotch and saying something like "you want your treat? I've got your Valentine's treat right here!"

Maybe a different choice of words next time, perhaps "grow a pair", if you need the analogy to be testicular...

Why it's OKAY to settle for Mr Good Enough
Posted: 2/14/2008 5:53:40 AM

So anyone not fitting your "ideal" are not worthy of affection and the chance at a relationship? And maybe we should bring back forced sterilization too, so these unworthy individuals can't procreate either.
Ooh, ouch! Nice, I think I felt the sting of that one a little bit

I'm still waiting to see someone declare they (or someone they know) found their perfect match who met all their checklist criteria, and that they're now deliriously happy.

Yep, I bet that'll be happening any minute now... to show everyone just how correct their demands are...

*looks at watch*

It's alright, I can wait.

...or he could just be busy, and didn't realize the entire future of a possible relationship was hanging on sending a text message before the clock ran out.

He was after you for four months, maybe he's not aware of the mandatory-minimum-required-communication once dating has been properly established, and he thinks after that much effort it's clear he's interested.

At least give the guy until the weekend, damn...

Snow White or Malibu Barbie
Posted: 2/14/2008 1:41:37 AM

I lay in tanning beds a couple of times a week. I know I shouldn't, because that's where the wrinkles come from.
Geezus!

A few times a week?! Forget wrinkles, try liver spots, lesions and skin cancers (even benign ones can look horrible). You seriously need to stop doing that. Go get a spray-on tan or something - I can't imagine it would end up costing much more (probably saving money if you factor in the tons of dermatological treatments you may end up wanting).

-_-

Ugh, anyway, there's nothing wrong with being fair skinned... pasty people unite! Power to the peopale!

Do you find yourself becoming apathetic about finding love?
Posted: 2/11/2008 4:07:48 AM

There are a lot more "desireable" women than men...And the bottom line is that most guys (note: I did not say men in this case - the men are the to 5-7% that you're interested in) are not going to bother to put in the effort, so they just slide through one dating relationship after another, leaving a trail of disheartened women in their wake. And leaving many desireable women without a hope of meeting a man her equal or better.
Yes indeed, you've got that right... of course it's also a matter of perspective of who she considers her "equal", and if they only fall in the 5-7%, the cycle just gets repeated with another guy.



Look, apathy is one of the largest problems affecting the world today! ... But, eh, whaddya gonna do... *shrug*

Opera stuff
Posted: 2/11/2008 3:51:10 AM
Well if this thread is going to rise again, then alright.

I'll admit, while I do think she has a powerful voice, she's been mic'd when I've seen her live, so she may well not be able to be heard over the instrumentals in a classical opera setting.

As for the Pokemon movie - she just covered a song by Sissel which they then used as the movie's theme - at the very most that's selling out, but she is an incredibly talented singer regardless.

Listen to her renditions of Nessun Dorma, O Mio Babbino Caro, Lascia Ch'io Pianga - she may not be an "Opera Singer", but she can certainly sing opera.

Preferences....schmeferences...what's the big deal?
Posted: 2/11/2008 2:50:21 AM
Alright... as expected a thread I was really trying to make a point in was eaten by the gaping forum void (make a post, go to sleep... gone by morning!)

Fortunately I've wised up and I was saving the messages so ha! I'll resurrect this old thread which is on the same topic (some of the same faces, too). The quoted posts vanished with the old thread, but whatever - it's still on track for this one.

Originally from: "Attractions, Shallowness & Preferences."
Posted: 2/10/2008 5:03:37 AM




See here we go again with the bitterness... "you dont deserve anything", no one demanded anything from any one else OR stated they were better than anyone else, just expressed a preference. What does it say about YOU that you take this so wrong?
Actually no, 10fingers was fairly clear:

Call me shallow cause I deserve what I want...I work hard to get it. So go to hell everyone else...that's what I say.


However that wasn't a directed response to someone in the thread, just to the general attitude here (and if you read through the forums, people are saying they "deserve" whatever all the time).

I'm only trying to suggest that people need to stop with the tunnel vision - no one person is better than another, and therefore you can't "deserve" someone "better" on the premise they're a more worthwhile human being.

I was quite clear that anyone can keep their preferences however they want, I'm only trying to make the point that doing so is extremely counterproductive, and you can see that by the people in this thread alone who have been successful (and more to the point, the still-single people who have been unsuccessful).

["This thread" referring to the original thread it came from, of course]

I'm just voicing my opinion that people (and mostly women, make no mistake) here need to get off their high horse and look around. Every profile here is a human being (other than Cassandra, natch ), and perhaps it might be worthwhile talking to someone and seeing who they are, rather than offhandedly tossing them aside because they're not your perfect fantasy person. You could be surprised, and the evidence to that is pretty clear.

We're in an encapsulated world on PoF where a large percent of the people are extremely self-centered and self-important - a community of people theoretically looking for relationships, but concerned strictly with their own satisfaction. A relationship isn't going to work if there isn't some measure of compromise, sacrifice and effort. (Yeah I realize the last paragraph was a bit of a non-sequitor, but it ties in... train of thought, you know how it is)

So yes, I'm not getting any dates - and if you like you can take Harry Peter's assumption that the only people who don't embrace everyone's preferences are people who are too unattractive to meet them. That's not why I'm saying this, but plenty of people are just going to assume as much and continue on as they are right now anyway - I only hope that someone will read this and realize people are more than just checkmarks on a list of attributes.

aggressive and passive personalities with dating
Posted: 2/10/2008 1:14:44 AM
So basically what you're saying is you want to do absolutely nothing, and want a man to not only initiate everything in the relationship process, but you basically want him to be your "superior", and you'll just follow along behind him.

That's not old fashioned, that's just lazy and passive - if a guy doesn't make a move, he's not interested, but if you're interested, making a move is completely out of the question?

*sigh*

Whatever works for you... maybe he'll come and pick you up in his horse-drawn carriage too.

How can you tell on a first date if there are sparks?
Posted: 2/8/2008 3:28:08 AM

If on the other hand, that spark isn't there well into the first meeting - its's just not going to happen, and no amount of dates or trying will change things.
This is the problem, people look for a specific (and yet abstract) feeling, and then if it's not there - all bets are off, the other person's clearly undateable.

Consider this: if you felt the immediate spark before, and it was amazing and undeniable - why are you not with that person now? If the "spark" was some indicator of ultimate relationship perfection, that would be one thing - but because it isn't, perhaps you should still get to know someone who doesn't shock you immediately.

Perhaps something else will click in, and you'll find something deeper you connect with.

(Yeah alright I know this is totally unrealistic, but let a guy imagine, wouldja?)

It just comes down to being another "dealbreaker" - except this one isn't even possible to quantify; but people are still going to treat it the same way - "No spark! Clearly not the right one, back to the PoF dating smorgasbord!"

How often do average girls like bigger guys?
Posted: 2/8/2008 2:28:17 AM

Thin people have been called rude, anorexic, shallow, self centered, high maintenance etc.
Only one of those has anything to do with weight, the rest are all personality traits that anyone can have. If you're called one of those things, you certainly can't simply attribute it to being thin.


Its all about your self-esteem, confidence and representation of yourself.
No, it's perhaps all about those things in real life, not on the internets.

Post #28 courtesy of jetjim sums it up quite nicely, although let me just make one slight correction here...
POF is a terrible place to find women if you are male
There we go, all better!


I love this. I'm a total chubby chaser.

I'm Confused
Posted: 2/7/2008 7:15:31 PM

I Love her but I'm not sure how much. I guess I'm just afraid of having another failed marriage.
This is why I'm going to disagree with everyone else - you say you love her, that's worth something.

It's understandable you don't want another failed marriage - but it's not necessary to plan your future that exactly. If you do indeed love her, try working on your relationship and enjoying what you have, instead of having buyer's remorse thinking "if I just keep looking, there might be something better..."

Some of us would find your position enviable - don't throw away what you have.

What do women hope to find on this site, and how?
Posted: 2/7/2008 12:28:42 PM

In my opinion men tend to look for strong negatives, while women tend to look for strong positives.
Oh please, when a woman rejects a man on the basis of not meeting one requirement on an impossible list of "dealbreakers", that's specifically looking for a negative - the positive qualities then all automatically become moot.

In fact I'd say it's distinctly the opposite way in the case of
if a man meets an attractive girl who has a good sense of humor, is fairly intelligent, faithful, affectionate and appreciates him he sees himself as having a catch. Lets say she's a bit whiny and petulant when she doesn't get her way, but rarely complains and gets over things easily.
what he's focusing on then are her positive qualities.


most just want a guy they can get it up for that won't embarrass them in public
Unless PoF is a place where the average guy is absolutely hideous, I stick by my previous post. We're living in a world where dating has become a consumer culture - people are just too obsessed with always trying to find a better deal.

Ever realize that you're the problem?
Posted: 2/7/2008 3:39:46 AM

Maybe it's not so much YOU that's the problem, as the choices you've made in partners?
In that case it still all comes back to the fact you made the decision to choose that partner, and then any person after that who is similarly incompatible after that (rather than changing who you'd choose).

Well I certainly can't blame him for not looking for a "just a friend", but anyway:

You may want to at least give it a few dates' worth - you'll get a much better idea about him, and there's less pressure when you're not hinging the entire possibility of any future contact based on a half-hour conversation over coffee.

And yet the women still sit here remaining single when they are getting approached by the day or hour. It really shows how women perceive men, which is most men are not intelligent, easy going, and down to earth in their eyes.
Well that's not quite true - it's something more along the lines of "most men are average looking, but there are so many to choose from I can continue to ignore those who aren't drop-dead gorgeous and just keep hunting for something better!"

Of course guys are doing this too, but to a much lesser extent (imo)

Kraft dinner and Canadian culture?
Posted: 2/6/2008 4:40:44 PM
I was under the impression part of it was that it's only called "Kraft Dinner" in Canada, and in the states it became just Macaroni & Cheese (or did they change it to "Cheese & Macaroni"? I vaguely remember commercials about that from years ago)

I dunno I haven't eaten the stuff in years and years - I switched to the PC White Cheddar macaroni, which I think tastes quite a bit better (sacrilege! I know!), but I haven't eaten that now in a long time either.

Hmm... I wonder if there's any in the back of the cupboard somewhere, I'm feeling nostalgically hungry...


Kraft actually does make a mayonaise product but it still does not compete in taste with the Best Foods/Hellmans brand

Anyone else INSPIRED by Guitar Hero/Rock Band?
Posted: 2/4/2008 5:10:51 PM
I would totally play "Orchestra" (tough game to market though) - although actually there already is a piano game, Keyboardmania. Let's see... aha

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboardmania

Actually a lot of the Konami/Namco games have classical music in them already - what with it not requiring any royalties - but of course it's been mixed to be really fast and challenging.

One of my favourite songs in DDR is "V for extreme" (or just "V" in Beatmania) - which is based off of Vivaldi's Concerto for Violin in F Minor, Op. 8, No. 4, "Winter"

difficult time breaking up
Posted: 2/4/2008 5:58:13 AM

Dude, I really don't think you understand what Love, I mean REAL love, is about. You know, the type where you put other people's needs in front of you own freely and GIVE...
Agreed - and the "love her but not in love with her" sounds a lot like the classic "the initial excitement's died down so I want something new instead".

I'd also wager a woman finding out her mother's dying probably isn't interested in having sex as often either, which could be a factor - this is all just speculation of course.

Either stick with her properly through the ordeal and maybe find a deeper connection, or just break up with her entirely and be done with it. The last thing she needs is to want to call someone she loved for comfort only to hear "sorry, can't talk now, I've got a date with this hot chick from work!"

If someone has more than a dozen interests, it is a deterrent to me.
I actually prefer people to have as many (actual and applicable) interests as possible, because I use them to narrow down searches with advanced search.

Unfortunately that only makes a difference when they're in the "interests" section, not in the body of the profile somewhere.

But when a compatabilty card gets pushed hard in the above described situation it doesn't make much sence.
Swap the sexes, and instead of "dating and then declaring lack of compatibility", replace that with "ignores your first contact message", and welcome to my world.

Profile skipping
Posted: 1/31/2008 7:56:27 PM
This is specifically when I'm doing an advanced search (so I've already filtered out smoking, drugs, location etc) - the only things that make me immediately move on to another profile are painfully bad 13-year-old aolspeak (with or without alternating caps), a giant wall of text, or when the profile has almost nothing more than "if you want to know, just ask".

Otherwise, I'll check out everything they've written (although I have been tempted to move on when the only thing they have listed under "interests" is "lots" or "various" ).

Upon this I came to realize that it was "within" that rules the soul..
Up until this point I wanted a tall, dark hair, dark eyes, gentelman.. and if he had blue eyes he's out of the pic... WOW... talk about slap in the face....
Now there's an epiphany I can get behind.


Maybe this is something we should all put on our profiles.What we would give to that special someone should we be lucky enough to find them.Would we be setting ourselves up though for others to tell us what they thought we want to hear or to mock?Who knows.
A nice idea in theory, but perhaps the innermost thoughts are better shared after you have someone - we all have things we're hesitant to reveal, and I don't think the risk of public scrutiny would quite outweigh the incredibly minimal chance that the right someone would read it and "get you".

Well good luck finding that - you keep chasing the initial euphoria, and you'll just end up having to find a new guy every time your relationship moves past the first stage.

A real relationship requires working on being happy in regular life, not feeling ecstatic for the rest of your days - if you expect that, you'll always find disappointment (and ironically probably has nothing to do with not being really loved).

So does that mean you need "nuts and bolts"? I don't know - personally I'm looking for less "business partner" and more just plain "partner".

*shrug*


He declares me to be nuts, and then he bolts.
Nice one

Is it wrong to really not be attracting to less attractive women
Posted: 1/30/2008 6:17:33 PM

I agree, but people in group 3 often don't get a oppurtunity to prove themselves. A lot of people ( especially on the internet dating sites ) will reject someone if there isn't instant attraction or chemistry.
Yes indeed, and therein lies the conundrum.


Then those people go into group 2, IMO
That's an option - then you've got only group 1 left... which then generally ends up populated only by people who don't find you group 1 material, or are otherwise unavailable.

Then we all remain single, and flock back to the forums to assuage our confusion! Sure is a perfect system we've got going, huh

Should women write first?
Posted: 1/28/2008 9:40:44 PM

It's a matter of courtesy to at least send a polite "Thanks, but no, thanks" note. Not replying at all only because of the less attractive looks of the sender is incredibly rude and proves bad manners.
What th-yes! You just made my night with that comment! (Which I suppose either really says something about me, or the PoF population at large... or maybe both).

Women rock. So why shouldn't they send out a friggin' e-mail?

Never been asked out

I feel you on this. I have not been asked out since high school.
What? This world never ceases to find ways to confound me.

SEND HIM YOUR NIPPLES
Use a courier service though, you don't want 'em getting lost in the regular mail.

CassaGo has it, that's it exactly. Especially:
But not everyone is prepared to work for one, or is prepared to give up what they have now to get one. They want it to fall in their laps.
Throw in something about "demands no one can meet", and that's pretty much all you need to know.

Fellas it's your turn(what makes you a good catch?)
Posted: 1/28/2008 10:12:56 AM

Is anyone else a little saddened that men don't seem to think they have any specific qualities that make them worth dating?
Oh we do, we just don't want to risk revealing them and risking having them disputed/mocked (or perhaps just known) by the general public.

It's hard enough getting a date here without someone thinking you're egotistical (er well... we're talking about PoF forum guys... so, y'know - that is, if they don't think that already)
