Horror movie lovers thread
Posted: 12/18/2013 8:11:02 PM
Roald Dahl's "Tales of the Unexpected" used to creep me out when I was a kid. For those not familiar, it was a TV show similar to "The Twilight Zone" in that each episode had a different plot, characters, etc. There was one episode where a woman killed her husband by hitting him over the head with a frozen leg of lamb. Thirty years later and I still think of that episode when I'm grocery shopping and see frozen legs of lamb.

Some of my favorite horror movies are "The Exorcist", "The Amityville Horror" (the original), "Carrie".

Transmission?
Posted: 5/26/2013 10:30:27 PM
I learned how to drive on an automatic, and I took my road test on an automatic, but now I drive a 'standard' (manual) and I prefer driving them. I just love the feel I get when accelerating, putting my foot on the clutch and changing gears. I learned to drive manual in my province's capital city, which has a lot of hills so I too had to learn to stop on a hill and take off without rolling into the person behind me.

Do you ever look at the Profile of the SAME SEX??
Posted: 2/5/2013 6:08:12 PM
Yes. When I first joined POF, I was a little apprehensive because I live in a small town and I wasn't too sure I wanted others to see my profile. I looked at profiles in my area, both males and females, and saw so many people I knew I created a profile too. Years ago, I would hear people from my area say they would never have the nerve to put up an ad on a dating site in case someone they knew saw them; these days it's no big deal. Now, I mostly look at profiles of other women who post here on the forums to "get a clearer picture" of where they're coming from.

Need Help Deciphering
Posted: 1/14/2013 7:57:48 PM
She might call everyone that. In the province where I live, it's common for people to call you "my love" or "darlin'" or something like that when talking to you. In that case, it usually doesn't mean anything. When I was in school, the male chef at the cafeteria used to call me "darlin'" all the time when serving me, but he called everyone that, including one of my male professors. It's just habit to him, and he probably calls everyone that because he likely sees many people in the run of a day but doesn't know everyone's names.

Education level in profile?
Posted: 1/6/2013 8:04:57 PM
I am with the others who say to tell the truth in a profile. I have a lot of formal education as well, enough years to have a PhD but I don't have a PhD. In a few months I will (finally) be getting my bachelor's degree but until then my education level on POF says "some university".

As for education being related to income, some of the highest wage earners I know of have college diplomas in the trades. There is a mining boom going on in a part of my Atlantic Canadian province, and this young 19-year-old guy was on the news once talking about how he just finished his 9-month heavy equipment operator program and was hired to work in the mines at about $100,000 per year. The cost of living in his town is really high though and anyone living there needs a good salary.

every girl I've dated that likes country wants me to become a country fan
Posted: 12/27/2012 8:16:54 PM

write some tecno-country. now that would be bizarre and awesome


Good idea! But if you aren't up to writing, OP, why not check out Rednex videos on Youtube from the 90s? It's techno-country mix and when I used to go clubbing they played "Cotton Eyed Joe" an awful lot. Check it out here if you aren't familiar with it:

Also, The Grid's "Swamp Thing" which is also sort of country-techno-ish:

Posted: 12/26/2012 3:20:36 PM
^^^^I think I would pay to see someone line dancing to Rush music!


How can anyone only like just ONE genre of music? Why on earth would anyone want to listen to just ONE genre ALL of the time??


^^^I agree with this. I love all kinds of music, though I have to admit classic rock is my favourite but I still consider myself a "headbanger" from the old days. I can listen to techno more than I can to country though, but I like some country. One guy messaged me one time on here and I noticed his preferred music was "quiet and soft"...at the time my ears were still recovering from just seeing an AC/DC concert. Don't know if that one could have worked. Maybe, since I like the quiet stuff too but as some others mentioned, if someone tells me I "have" to listen to a certain type of music, I will lose interest in that person. That would feel too controlling to me.

The drive thru
Posted: 12/16/2012 2:02:21 PM
Does she know you? Otherwise, if she didn't recognize your voice how would she know it was you ordering and that you could be someone she might be attracted to? I imagine if I worked at a drive through I would not know who any of my customers were unless I recognized their voices and I wouldn't get to see what they looked like until they pulled up to the window, or pulled ahead like you did and I brought the order out to them. Did she get a chance to see you before she started cooking? That is just something I would probably think of if I was in your situation.

Like others mentioned here, I might assume that she was getting rid of extra fries since she was closing. I haven't worked at a drive though restaurant before, but I have worked in food service and I was required to throw any extras in the garbage when closing up. In her situation, I probably would have rather give a customer those extras than throw them out too, especially if they were just cooked.

How about going to BK next time earlier and going inside to see if she serves you? Maybe more face-to-face interaction will give you more clues.

Sex Toys
Posted: 12/13/2012 4:48:48 PM

dildo's with a male counterpart? is this common? :_0


A few years ago I used to give Passion Parties...if you're not aware of them, they are like Tupperware parties but more interesting! I sold sex toys rather than household stuff. Good way to make some extra money. Anyway, my biggest customers - who bought dildos, vibrators, etc. - were married couples. I sold more to married couples than I did to single people.

Where do girls go to have guys talk to them?
Posted: 11/18/2012 7:35:47 PM
Have you tried going down to George Street? The "Sleazeway"? (I took a look at your profile) Not sure if many women go to those places to talk (I didn't), but if you meet them and maybe have a few dances, the talking can come later somewhere more quiet if you decide to meet up again. Speaking for myself only, I would never study in a coffee house because I would find it too distracting, but if I was feeling alone and had no important assignments due I might go to acoffee house and bring some school books to keep me somewhat occupied. I can keep an eye out for people I know, etc, and who knows, I just might find a new man I would like to meet. If I want to meet new people, I would join organizations I am interested in.

Is there such a thing as gratitude?

You also need to know she is impulsive and makes decisions on a whim and blows her money in the casino too.


If she blows her money in the casino, then maybe she really doesn't have the money to take you on a trip.

Your education
Posted: 8/20/2012 6:23:26 PM
I agree with the others...post what you have, not what you're working on. I've seen a few profiles of people I know where they listed their education as a bachelor's degree, when I knew they didn't yet have it and was only beginning their first semester of university. As for myself, I am two semesters away from earning my bachelor's degree (finally), but I listed my education level here as 'some university'.

Older and wiser-vs- younger and......
Posted: 7/24/2012 7:23:44 PM
When I was a bit younger, I was a 'die-hard' cougar....I only liked younger men. A few years ago, I was very attracted to an older guy, who was probably around 15 years older than me. After that, I became open to men who were older than me as well as to those who were younger. After I reached 40 last year, however, I find that the men I am most attracted to are closer to my own age, in their early 40s.

Quirks & habits that make me cringe!
Posted: 6/2/2012 8:35:45 PM

How hard would it be to find a suitable location to dispose of a butt?


I have seen people at airports, schools, etc., toss their butts on the ground when there was a cigarette disposal within arm's reach. Talk about lazy!

It also drives me nuts when I go to a public washroom and find that the person before me has not flushed the toilet. Gross! Also, finding pubic hair or pee on the seat. One of the things I miss most from my recent trip to Las Vegas were the toilet seat covers at virtually every public washroom I was in!

Good looking vs Attracted
Posted: 5/20/2012 4:19:34 PM
I have seen attractive men I was not attracted to. OP, have you ever looked at a woman and thought she was pretty but you still were not attracted? For example, I used to be a die-hard cougar, and would not even think of going out with a guy who was older, especially if he was much older. But I could admit that, yes, a particular older man could be attractive, have an attractive face, physique, and nice personality. But because I was not at all interested in older men, I was not attracted to him. Now that I'm older and I am no longer a cougar, I could be. And now that I'm older, I see young guys in their twenties and think "oh, he's cute" but I would not be attracted because I am not into guys who are more than, say, twenty years younger than me.

your dream job
Posted: 5/3/2012 6:14:58 PM
Travel writer for a travel magazine.

Munkeechi, have you looked at teaching jobs on reserves and other Aboriginal areas? Where I live there are several Aboriginal communities that often need teachers because the turnover rate is really high. The towns are usually isolated and many workers leave after a year or two. Also, because of the shortage in teaching and other professions, salaries are often a bit higher than those in larger centres as an incentive to keep the employees there. There may be similar places in Manitoba closer to home where you can teach. Good luck, I hope you find something soon.

So is talk about sex forbidden on here or what
Posted: 5/3/2012 5:41:12 PM
OP, I find that if I login as soon as I get to the forums and then click on "Show All Forums" then "Sex and Sexuality Issues" shows up in the list. If I do not bother to sign in, the sex forum does not show. Sometimes if I get distracted and keep POF forums open over a long time, it automatically logs me out, and I cannot see the sex forum then either.Could this be why you are not seeing the sex forum showing up? I mean obviously you sign in to post, but do you look at the forum list after you sign in?

Should I get my own apartment?
Posted: 4/30/2012 10:11:41 PM
I understand how it feels to live at home as an adult...I have gone through tough times too. I lived at home as well out of necessity. Actually, a lot of my friends did, hard times are everywhere. People lose jobs here in Canada too, and everywhere else in the world. In my province a particular town is seeing a mining boom, where less than $65,000 a year is considered "low income" and mine workers typically make over $100,000 a year. Housing is so scarce, bungalows are going for $5000 a month rent in some cases. Not everyone works in the mine, Walmart and Tim Horton's needs employees and pay significantly less, so yes, there are probably a lot of young people living at home there because they can't afford $1200 a month for even a rented room in someone's house. I understand that the economy in the US is a lot worse, but people sometimes live at home longer here in Canada too.

OP, do what you think is best. As I've said, I lived at home, but I hated it. I hated not having any privacy and I hated feeling like a kid in my parents' house.

In your opinion.......
Posted: 4/22/2012 10:06:04 AM
Having a degree only means you have some knowledge for the subjects you studied. It doesn't mean you know everything


Totally agree with this^^ although I know several people who seem to think otherwise.

I don't think lack of education necessarily means lack of intelligence. I know of several high school dropouts who seemed quite intelligent, and several people with multiple and advanced degrees who seemed to lack common sense. I also know several people who didn't go to college or university who seemed less than intelligent, and several who went and who are extremely intelligent.

OP, that guy who used to put you down because he had more education and money just sounds insecure. People who brag about that type of thing usually are, and probably, he has nothing more going for him in life. Good thing he's your ex.

Agree with the rest...too much drama. I also got a look at your profile, you're married? If you are still married, that will only add to the drama.

Plus, I know you said he seems to drink a lot. I don't know if he's actually an alcoholic, but I know from experience how hellish a relationship with one could be. Something to definitely think about.

Fleshlight...?
Posted: 3/26/2012 7:54:36 PM

They are for sexual enhancement and to mix things up. Nothing is worse than the old boring routine.
Many couples use them as additional sensations, and for a different feeling.


My best customers were married couples...I sold more to them than I did to single people.

staring
Posted: 3/21/2012 12:30:37 PM
When I find myself looking at a man quite often I am attracted to him....when I'm not interested, I will maybe give him a quick glance, usually to verify that he is or isn't someone I know. Sometimes though I have a hard time tearing my eyes away from someone at a club who looks like he's auditioning for "So You Think You Can Dance, Canada?" In other words, someone I (and everyone else) can't help but look at.

I am also in school, and I tend to look at the clock quite often...do you sit beneath that? (I think someone else asked that in this thread, and it makes sense). Also, if you sit near the door, I find myself looking in that direction if someone comes in or if I hear students walking by. I have looked quite intently at profs during tests in the hopes that seeing their faces would inspire memories of things they taught (or other students, if they said something I need to remember for the test). I've stopped doing this b/c I was afraid they would find it creepy!

Generally, though, if I look at a guy often, and he's not sitting near a door or clock, or something distracting, I am probably interested.

Mail order partners - whether male or female - what would be on your order?
Posted: 3/20/2012 12:20:55 PM
In no particular order:

1. Must enjoy cooking and cleaning...I hate both and I will gladly shovel driveways and mow lawns. He can do the housework! (Actually I don't mind cooking, especially if mail-order husband cleans up after)
2. Must be intelligent. Doesn't have to be like Sheldon on Big Bang Theory, but somewhat able to hold an intelligent conversation.
3. Must be attractive...to me.
4. Should love to travel. Or he will be left at home alone a lot.
5. Someone good at fixing vehicles would be a bonus!

Is it really worth risking your life?
Posted: 3/15/2012 5:11:38 PM
I don't know why people are promiscuous, but in my opinion, sex is one of the most powerful motivators on earth, even more than money. Some people will risk their lives, their marriages/families, their freedom, their jobs, their savings, you name it, for sex or even just the possibility of sex. Others may disagree with me, but I've seen people driven to bankruptcy because someone had such a hold on them by promising sex. Of course, they may have been looking for love and affection too in some cases.

Wheels from Degrassi Dead
Posted: 2/16/2012 5:03:01 PM
RIP Neil Hope. I loved Degrassi growing up and liked his character. I thought about Wheels a couple of years ago during a stop in Port Hope at a garage (that was where Wheels was going when he went off to find his biological dad after his parents died) and am saddened to hear Neil Hope has died. I think he was only 34 or 35 at the time of his death.

Musical taste being a dealbreaker?
Posted: 2/4/2012 9:23:57 PM
I would not say music would be a dealbreaker, but I do know there is some stuff I cannot stand. I'm sure there are a lot of men who would think the same about my kind of music. A guy messaged me once, and his profile said he was into quiet, soft music. When I received his message, I was just a few days back from seeing my favorite band on the planet, AC/DC, who call themselves one of the loudest bands in the world. Judging how long it took my ears to recover, I agree. My music is loud, my car is loud, I am loud..I am not into "quiet". That may have just been his music, but I was not interested.

Another guy messaged me, who was into Newfoundland music. For those unfamiliar, the best way I can describe it is some type of polka-like music. The headbanger in me could not see us agreeing on what type of music to listen to. I am into other types of music though, especially classic rock. I may have given him a chance, if I was attracted, but I wasn't. I guess my point is, if I like someone enough, I don't care what music he likes...we will find some way to get along!

When your partner cheats, who should you be mad at?

I'd be most mad at the person who cheated on me. After all, he is the one who vowed to commit to me, and spend his life with me, yada yada yada. I'd be more upset at the one he cheated with if she was a friend or relative, though.

Why do so many women here have deceitful pictures?
Posted: 1/21/2012 7:25:40 PM
Completely agree, but don't you think these people are setting themselves up for an inevitable let down by doing this? If they fooled you and then when you meet the person, and they look a lot worse in person you're going to bail asap, and never talk to them again, so whats the point?


I think some people (I'm just using a female in my example, but some men have deceitful profiles too) will lie about their body types, weight, height, job, age, WHATEVER but meet the person they've been chatting with in the hopes that that person will think "well, she's bigger than she said, but she's great on the inside, we have great rapport...what the hell, I like her anyway, I'll keep seeing her". I think that they hope that their personality will win the person over. Of course, it usually doesn't happen that way, and I understand...I would have no interest in someone who lied either, about anything. I am big, and when I'm actively looking on POF I post a full-body shot so that there are no surprises or delusions.

Traveling for a first date...Bad idea?
Posted: 1/21/2012 10:19:42 AM
I know several people who have done this, and turned out fine. You just have to be cautious....stay at a hotel, meet in a public place, etc. I would also be cautious about Facebook too: I live alone, and when I travel somewhere, I keep my family and close friends updated on where I am and how I am doing, but I don't post FB statuses in a way that lets others know I am out of town and my house is empty. If you don't live alone this should not be a problem, though.

This is definitely true. Many years ago I had a male prof who wore the same sweater to class every day. He changed it around midterm, my friends and I all noticed, and I'm sure other students did as well. He wore the new sweater every day for the rest of the term!

Cheering for a different team
Posted: 12/29/2011 6:42:05 PM
I doubt that you're not getting dates because of the team you cheer for. I'm a hockey fan, and my favorite team is the Montreal Canadiens. Loved them since I was a kid. Every guy I've ever been with, though, has been a fan of the their oldest and biggest rival, the Toronto Maple Leafs (not planned that way, just how it always seems to turn out). Not everybody is that hung up on their sports team that they will dismiss someone who doesn't cheer for their favorite team, when they're compatible in other ways.

Ladies would you?

A guy asked me to have his baby one time, many years ago. He promised to give me a one-time payment of $10,000, but wanted nothing to do with me or the child after. I guess he just wanted to "spread his seed". I wasn't offended, but I thought he was nuts.

Girlfriend's not sudden but slowly progressing depression.

It may be a good idea for her to look for counselling services on campus. I think most, if not all, universities offer such services (mine does) and they will not likely be pushing pills at her because I think they are mostly staffed by those working on advanced psychology degrees, or something similar, rather than doctors. If she is thinking of suicide, she needs help by someone qualified to give it to her.

As for her major, I agree with someone who mentioned that it can be applied to other programs. Perhaps she can get an MA in English, and teach or be an editor. It can be applied to degrees in law or medicine, or masters programs in other disciplines. There are a lot of possibilities.

Macho or Sophisticated?

When I read "leather headgear", I couldn't help but picture the Village People and Freddy Mercury of Queen. Don't know if what they wore was leather, but that's sure what I envisioned.

Anyway, I generally prefer men who are the clean-cut, short hair type but I have been attracted to stubble-faced guys occasionally. I have always had a weakness for guys with dark curly hair, but often found myself attracted to the opposite -- guys with straight blond hair, for example. When I worked at an airport, I was mostly attracted to clean cut-looking guys in uniforms such as cops and pilots, for example, but now I'm in university, and I find myself often attracted to intellectual-looking types who are not always clean cut and dress casually. I have a "type" I am attracted to, but it's not etched in stone.

As for your question, I would probably still be more attracted to the first guy you mentioned.

If someone emails you with misspelled words and bad grammar, do you respond?

I wouldn't necessarily write someone off just because he had a few words misspelled in his message. The only times misspelled words and bad grammar really bug me are when the writer is being paid to write. If I got a message here on POF full of spelling and grammatical mistakes, from someone who claimed to be a novelist or reporter, I would not be impressed and might write that person off. But maybe not.

Why...
Posted: 12/22/2011 7:07:56 PM
Not everybody likes to travel. My brother works for an airline and never takes advantage of the travel benefits because it's not something he'd care to do, or he'd probably do it. I, on the other hand, want to do a lot more of it. I actually have a diploma in travel and tourism (which did not get me a job, unfortunately), I love planning trips, and can't wait until I get my degree in a little more than a year so I afford to travel like I want to. I put the fact that I love travelling on my profile, although if I met someone who didn't care to travel, that would be fine but I would be leaving him home a lot! And yes, I pay for my own travel, and one of the reasons I am in school is to get a better paying job so I can travel more.
