Viewed Me and Last 30 I Viewed
Posted: 5/31/2012 9:20:51 AM
It seems to my like the stealth mode is no longer working as well, I think all that view are seen there regardless of how they have it marked on their profile......at least it seems that way to me

Demanding strangers, who want to meet within hours, want phone numbers, etc.
Posted: 5/10/2012 10:35:12 AM
I dont want to wait weeks to meet someone but I hate when they send a first email and say lets meet......ummmm no I need to get a feel for if we are compatible, if we cant talk in email or phone then we sure cant in person

Resigned to being single or determined to change that?
Posted: 5/10/2012 10:31:33 AM
I enjoy being on my own alot, however I really miss the closeness of a special someone, I am beginning to think I will indeed be alone for the rest of my life but only time will tell that

Dating Ages
Posted: 5/10/2012 10:29:34 AM
20 years ago 10 years older wouldnt have been a problem, now I doubt I would even think about dating anyone even 4 years older.

Are pay dating sites worth it?
Posted: 11/16/2008 2:16:33 PM
Well I had talked to some people that had good luck here on Match.com so I bit the bullet and decided to join and see what would happen. Well I get alot of winks but so far only on has emailed me, of which I had no interest in, I have sent out a couple and gotten only a few responses back then nothing, frankly I think it is just online dating that sucks

Hug or a Hand Shake?
Posted: 2/12/2008 1:36:39 PM
I can be a touchy feely kind of person so I dont have any problems with a hug to say hello, it shows how bad it went though when they shake your hand goodbye

At what age do we lower our standards on dating?
Posted: 2/12/2008 1:30:56 PM
if your standards are too high and you are still alone should you lower them? If you are happy with yourself and although you would like to be with someone but dont want to "settle" then dont. You need to do what will make you happy

When does physical attraction stop being so important?
Posted: 11/15/2007 4:43:48 PM
I think it is very important to be physically attracted to the person you are with. I am finding that is my biggest challege getting into the dating game after so very long out of it, maybe I am too picky and I probably am but that is something I do need.

looking for older women but why?
Posted: 11/15/2007 4:39:38 PM
I have gotten approached by alot of younger guys and frankly I am attracted to younger guys but it seems like it takes very little contact before the talk gets sexual. Nothing against sex mind you but I need to have a connection with someone first not just any young hot bod, and to date I have not found that.

Is it just me, or are testimonials a turn off ?
Posted: 10/21/2007 7:38:45 AM
Well I don’t know that I would say it’s a turn off, I guess it depends on what it says, but I don’t put much store in them as the ones I have read seem to be from ones that have talked to them but haven’t met them. That really doesn’t tell me if they are real or not, just because they are great to talk to doesn’t mean they are not hiding who they really are, this is the internet after all.

Just my thoughts

Confused in Austin
Posted: 10/16/2007 9:45:53 AM
Have you talked to her about it? You have said that she recently got a divorce, she may not be ready to be in a serious relationship yet but that doesnt mean she doesnt enjoy being with you. Talk to her, maybe the two of you just want different things at this stage and yes you should date others unless the two of you decide to be exclusive.

Men-does it bother you if a woman's legs are not shaved?
Posted: 10/12/2007 12:49:15 PM

Why do young men think older women are interested in them?
Posted: 10/12/2007 12:29:54 PM
Well I for one am attracted more to guys that are younger than me than older. I have been told I don’t look my age and I know I don’t feel or act my age, I still like to go out dancing and have fun. I will say though that it is hard for me to overcome my thoughts on the lack of anything in common with 20 year olds enough to actually date one although I have had offers. I try to keep myself in shape and frankly I don’t see enough guys my age that take good enough care of themselves….granted this is not all guys….so the younger set is what I am physically attracted to.

NO it is not too old, it is all about how you feel about yourself. Physically I am in so much better shape now than I was 10 years ago. Now mind you I have plenty of days that I feel soooooo much older than I am but then again there are alot of days where I by no means feel or act my age!

And if she sleeps with you on the first date?
Posted: 9/28/2007 9:20:54 AM
Sex on the first date is not a good idea as I think it defines the “relationship” in a way you don’t want it defined if you want more than just sex out of it. So instead of what places you would like to go to and see together and seeing what you have in common to make it more it would seem like it would revolve more around come sleep with me babe

Is it a bad sign if a person comes on to strong before they even met you?
Posted: 9/23/2007 7:31:38 AM
Well I would think that they should listen to the tone of your reply and if they have they should know if they are coming on too strong. The ones I hate are the ones that have decided "they" are interested in you but dont seem to care if you are interested in them.

I agree with tinywonder, everytime I think I have met someone that I could enjoy being with the same thing happens

Posted: 9/10/2007 2:07:57 PM
There are alot of fakes out there and yes I have been burned by one recently and it is making me very cautious as I am very new to the dating scene, I have thought of giving up as I dont have a problem being alone, actually I do enjoy it except it would be nice to have someone to take a walk with or have dinner with and other such things.....I guess it just takes time and you take the good with the bad and try not to expect too much.

Views on Casual Sex
Posted: 9/2/2007 7:08:54 AM
Well for me whether I have casual sex or not doesnt depend on what others think or me, what I think of myself is what is important. I thought that casual sex would be what I did want coming out of a long term marriage but I have found that what I want is to connect with someone before having sex with them. So to meet up just for sex (and yes I have no problem admitting I love sex) is not for me.

Beginning again
Posted: 8/31/2007 7:12:23 AM
OP I am in my 40's and it has been 23 years since I dated, it is not easy I have kids as well and a full time job. It is overwhelming so just start out slow. Meet people, not just for dating to get back into the "you" social scene.......that has been the hardest for me but I am trying, making new friends and such.

Good luck to you!

What three questions
Posted: 8/28/2007 7:15:32 AM
Well I dont IM here and it sounds like that is a good thing considering the questions being asked.

I think my top 3 to be asked are:

Do you like younger guys
What is your IM
What are you looking for

Why are older women scared about dating younger men?
Posted: 8/26/2007 7:19:23 AM
Dating a younger guy doesnt bother me at all, I think the issue is more what you have in common. Alot of older women date younger guys for the sex, and if that is all that is wanted then that is fine. I need more of a connection than that, but most that I am interested in are indeed younger than me, I gues s because I dont act or feel my age.

First Date Meals? Who pays? Why are people so hungry? Have they forgot how to cook/entertain?
Posted: 8/24/2007 5:47:28 PM
Well if you are talking first date, my rule is to always meet in public so a home cooked meal is out of the question the first time. I would rather meet for a drink instead of a meal though.

Hiding your visit?
Posted: 8/19/2007 7:06:12 AM
yes I agree with the others, I did not have mine marked as such in the beginning but my looking implied interest that was not there. I like being able to look without it being seen as an interest and have started making first contact if something appeals to me in a profile or if I am just courious about something.
