Income factor when dating women. Is money really an issue?
Posted: 12/9/2015 2:11:26 AM
Money matters,dont know why some people want to fight it so hard,anyone who has struggled knows how much it matters and how miserable life can be almost to the point of not being worth living when it is in short supply.

Online dating women have the upper hand
Posted: 12/7/2015 2:44:12 PM
Showboat,dont know what the Sean Connery approach is but I know he has never lacked female companionship,a man just needs to respect himself in regard to women and give respect in return,at 55 a man realizes he has never met a woman he couldn't live without and its not likely he ever will,so friendship and companionship become the main thing he looks for.....then you have some who never advance beyond high school and fall in "love" once or twice a month with "the one" they usually have the lower hand.

Your money and/or property will be the only thing most people will be consistently interested in throughout your life,only children and small furry Animals receive what could be described as the closest thing to love most people can deliver...cynical,yes....true,yes....exceptions of course.

It also depends on the man,if you find yourself at a disadvantage most of the time in relationships with women then perhaps you need to change something about yourself and the way you approach and deal with women...."**** whipped" is not a meaningless phrase.

Why is it so hard for single moms to date?
Posted: 12/1/2015 1:35:54 PM
This question has been asked and answered about several hundred times....why not some new or maybe not so new questions.

Why do people with kids want to date people without kids since there is obviously a difference in lifestyles and schedules,and to some degree philosophies and perceptions of life ?

Why do people with kids waste their time complaining about people without kids that don't want to date them ?

Why do people with kids not understand that another person may not want to share the responsbility you bear ?

Why do people with kids realize its not that appealing to be presented with a list of people that can often include inlaws and even the ex in addition to the children whos approval you have to win in addition to your approval,thats alot of work and you may not be worth it to them.

Why do people with kids not seem to understand that we all make choices and most of us only want to reap the consequences of the choices we make and not others, not good,bad or indifferent it just is.

If one wants to call someone a better man or woman for taking on the responsibility of somebody else's children do so,but there is no need to disparage or belittle those who decide not to,would you want such a person around your children anyway.

Sincerely with Our Dogs and Cats in our Middle Ages????
Posted: 11/30/2015 3:40:18 PM
I am an Animal lover but have never understood judging them by people standards, or people by pet standards,pet owners say their pets give them unconditional love, well considering their lack of ability to judge your character by any standard other than food,shelter and affection what are they supposed to do,if you told your pet about your criminal history what would they do,if you told them you stole things from work,lied alot,stabbed your best friend in the back and slept with your brothers wife would they pack up their food dish and leave ? you could do all of this and slap a baby and steal its bottle on the way home and it wouldnt matter to them...... we love Animals more for what they are than they love us for who we are because their perceptions of us are much simpler than our perceptions of each other so we in a sense look to them for what we cannot get from each other based on our treatment of each other.....or something like that.

Changing your Type
Posted: 11/30/2015 3:12:50 PM
These threads often seem to suggest that the key to happiness is having what you don't want and are not attracted to as an exercise in character building or eating the same food you don't like until you like it or something like that,this may work for the younger folks who can afford to waste some time but after you get some miles and years on you you know or should know what you want and be confident in yourself to pursue it without any apologies....and also willing to be alone with a decent attitude if you cant find it.

I first saw the forums back in 05 or 6 and there was a party line then and you towed it or you were out,there were correct and incorrect opinions on just about everything and if you strayed you didn't last long,dont know why anyone would think that was better unless you were on the "correct" side. of things.

How open are you REALLY to discuss why you're still single?
Posted: 11/29/2015 11:09:02 AM
It is also a fact that people will blame anything but themselves,the media,television and the internet all have off buttons and parents can have a tremendous influence on their children if they themselves tear themselves away from what they blame their failures as parents on and be a part of their childrens lives.....no guarantees but its better than the blame game when one considers that when a child is a success good parenting is credited for it but if they fail then its society,the media,peer pressure etc etc that's to blame.

Just another Double Standard
Posted: 11/7/2015 1:02:59 AM
Well I guess I should have expected such responses,little anedotes about women who can fix things as if it were the norm,swarms of female mechanics,plumbers,electricians etc out there everyday getting it done and keeping it real LOL and the accusations of emotional issues. The company I work for has been in business for 50 years and has has never had a female tech or ever had one apply and probably never will,same goes for other companies I have worked for.

The comment about watching women fall apart when something breaks is a response to the "i don't need a man for anything" BS yet when something breaks or some hard difficult work needs to be done they either have a husband or boyfriend or a man for hire to do it....oh yes I know already,you know a woman who............if a woman doesnt need man for anything that's fine,but don't call him when you do need him only to tell him later you dont need him again,its just simple respect,if you want respect then give it to somebody who can do what you cannot do,many women have no respect for men period in any capacity.

A strong independent person is able to do for themselves and not depend on others for things,everyone is dependent to some extent but unless you can do it yourself you are depending on someone,should be easy to understand.I have seen many threads over the years where woman ask are men intimidated by by strong women....please,only weak men are intimidated by women at all,strong or weak......everyone has strengths and weaknesses.....everyone.

Then of course we have the condescending psycho analysis response such as the one above,a man pointing out any flaws in womens behavior must have issues of some sort because we all know that all men measure their value and worth on women's acceptance of them so any complaints must come from being rejected by them blah blah blah,and can never be based on any actual real world experiences.....all criticism of women's behavior must be born out of mental and emotional issues,pure fantasy created out of bitterness over rejection......check your ego,you are human and flawed just like men are.

Oddball is great!!!
Posted: 11/6/2015 3:46:05 PM
No I didn't get hostile but did take offense at her suggestion that a sweet little dog or cat that just wants to love you that might shed a little hair every now and then is an issue but idiots that bring nothing but misery to your life are just fine.....I don't smoke or have parties everyday,her drama king sons friends and relatives however did all of those things.

The point,if it needs to be stated clearly,is that people are a much bigger problem than pets are and if you have a lot of people baggage with you it would seem that you would be a bit more tolerant of Animal issues few as there are.

Income factor when dating women. Is money really an issue?
Posted: 11/4/2015 3:23:41 AM
This question has been ask before and treated as if women being interested in money is either a myth or extremely rare,well like all things it depends on the person....some are and some are not,there is sufficient eveidence to suggest that SOME women in fact do consider money above all things whether they have any or not and regardless of how they got it.

There is still enough left of the old society we used to have where men are expected to have the lions share of the money,that like everything else is changing.

An empty brain ? complete nonsense,not everyone expresses themselves in writing as well as others.

Laziness ? more nonsense

Poor writing skills ? perhaps,but different people have different skills,are we to believe that only great authors and English majors are suitable for dating.

Inarticulate ? perhaps,but there are tons of inarticulate slugs out there both male and female who have more dates than they know what to do with....its just another narrow judgement that people are free to make but will do little for their dating and relationship life,there are profile templates that can make anyone sound good even though its a complete lie.....maybe that's what people want anyway.

Bottom line is people do not want to put forth effort or deny themselves in anyway,yet they still want to be fit and in good health,it is perfectly accessable to anyone who is physically able to exercise,simply walking as much as you can is helpful....but again people want to do nothing and have what they want anyway.

The fitness "industry" maybe a scam but fitness is not,the only reason we have the scam is because people want to be told they can have the same results as a man or woman who eats healthy and in moderation and gets regular vigorous exercise while they sit around and eat whatever taste good in large quantities and have a treadmill they use as a clothes rack.....not happening.

Thoughts on attractive men
Posted: 10/24/2015 1:04:57 PM
No offense to the Op but I have always wondered why women attractive or other wise can self promote which unless done with extreme tact can be very arrogant but if a man does it he is stuck up...I mean "BeautyBabie" you are an attractive woman but would you be interested in a man who called himself Hot Stud or One Hot Guy or how about Every Womans Dream or Gods gift to Women.

I have seen women with names like "Hot Honey" "One Sexy Momma" "Hot Granny for You" should I have taken any of these women seriously or dismissed them as legends in their own mind ? physical beauty in my humble opinion is obvious and requires no promotion or advertisement,inner beauty however proves its self over time.

Do men really expect to find the one on a site like POF?
Posted: 10/18/2015 4:25:25 AM
People have individual personality traits,some never met a stranger.some know nothing but strangers....we are all different and find different things easy or difficult,we have exaggerated the effect of what we think of ourselves and how it affects others,if I don't like someone I don't care what they think of themselves because I must make my own decision,if you can make me like you based only on your opinion of yourself then I am a weak and needy person and cannot think for myself....con men and women work on the principle of controlling and manipulating others.

I find it interesting that there were votes to delete the thread on the grounds that it is a "reduntant subject" might as well delete might as well delete 95% of whats here if that is the standard.....relationships are not as complicated as we make them and there is nothing new under the sun.

Moderators are people and as such are biased,they agree with some and not with other and will find a way to arrange the "rules" to fit that bias and to allow things to be said they agree with and silence what is said they don't agree with.

The typical tactic was to allow one side to say things to provoke the other and when they responded in like manner they were banned......people who like that sort of thing would think it was "better"
