I just feel that most women want guys taller than them. thats it. If a girl is 5'4, and wears 5 inch heels, she's only going to date guys 5'9+, thats insane and not true. Most women do not wear high heels anymore. I personally don't go for the type of woman that likes high heels.

Dietfree, not exactly sure what height has to do with dating... Maybe you could elaborate on that a bit.

First meet, won't do something brief like coffee?
Posted: 4/1/2013 3:27:46 PM
Rules in general are silly. Why do we have "rules" Rules only limit us to doing things. Why not just forget about having rules.

personally, I do not want to meet someone for a 20 minutes. That to me is a waste of time.

You're about to start dating and I'm totally about to give it up, for good. I simply do not have any luck on these sites at all. I know many men complain about the same things on this site, not getting any messages. I can send out 20 messages and not get 1 back. That to me is mind boggling. I consider myself to be a good looking, extremely well built guy. So it boggles my mind. Maybe that is the very reason for my lack of messages being returned. I have been told I intimidated women or my build, makes women feel insecure about their own bodies. But that doesn't explain why the young thin girls don't respond.

Anyways, its not worth all the frustration and not getting what you believe you deserve.

Guys that shaved their arms and back...what do you think?
Posted: 3/27/2013 6:39:32 AM
Just about all athletes shave their bodies. All athletes. Watch any boxer, mma fighter, bodybuilder, swimmer, runner, sprinter. One, your body looks much better without hair. The muscles are much more visible and is more pleasing to the eye.

Why does one need a pic from"yesterday" Does a few months or a year really make a difference? The only time that short a time will make a difference is say if a person got really sick and lost alot of weight. or for whatever reason, that person gained alot of weight. or if they got in a major accident and had their face all mangled. Then I can see having an up to date pic.

But people do not change in a years time. I know people love to argue to the contrary. But they simply do not. Only time there is an exception is for kids. They can change drastically in one year. But adults simply do not. Many people do not like taking pics of themselves for various reasons.

Does POF work?
Posted: 3/19/2013 9:44:51 AM
It can work for women, not to sure about working for men though. I just feel women have way to many choices, therefore can afford to be ultra picky. The bottom line is, men get far fewer messages, far fewer messages returned. you can be a good looking well built man, but still get no messages or very few ever returned. It can get frustrating.

Why Are All My Dates Financially Broke?
Posted: 3/18/2013 12:13:22 PM
Maybe I'm old school. But the man should have the power. But, you maybe right. I don't think I would want someone totally broke. I wouldn't mind someone that is not so well off, but not dirt broke.

Personally, I like women that aren't all that well off. That just means to me, they will be more dependent on you and therefore more loyal. That may sound bad, but hey, I'm being honest.

Stubidoo. Let me ask you this. Why can't you go out to a bar or club and hit on girls? You do realize that age is 100% in your mind. You believe yourself to be "too old" and therefore you are. Clubs or bars do not have age limits on them.

yes, cause a guy 48 can't have tattoos. lol You do realize how insane that statement is right? Unless your a biker? Another insane comment. First, what does age have to do with tattoos. You either look good in them or you don't. Age is totally irrelevant. You do realize what century this is right?

Should performing a background check on a potential bf/gf be considered as a sign of insecurity?
Posted: 3/13/2013 10:41:48 AM
That girl, i can understand wanting to know if someone is a sex predator, but anything, yes, should be kept private.

Ummm, little lady, those pics are not fake. And if the person meeting me isn't happy, then she has the right to not see me again. Right?

Age is something I don't believe in. I have made myself perfectly clear on that matter. I do not believe age should be used as a judgement on whether or not a woman will date you. So yes, my age is my business and nodody elses.

Sorry Helen, but I maintain that aging is a slow process. Slower for some people than for others. In most cases, nobody is going to show any difference in pics in a years time. Sometimes people just like to argue. If I said people always show big changes in a years time, Im sure you would have told me how people do not change year to year, lol

I also believe its different for women than for men. Personally, women age on average alot faster than men do. I'm not talking about the alleged myth that women live longer, I'm talking about aging and looking older.

Here is the only caveat to my statement. When you are young, like my daughter, yes, you can change in a years time. But once you are an adult, you do not change in a years time.

Dan, people use the same pics. I don't have special pics for this site, and special pics for other sites. Not sure what link you are referring to. 3 years ago, i had different pics. One of my pics is only 8 months old. The other is a little over a year old. so, try again.

Ummmmm, height isn't size. body mass is size. Boxers are useless. You must not watch much mma, now do you. I have years of kickboxing experience, not to mention mma and submission wrestling experience. So you keep living in your dream world. But the reality is this. The bigger stronger animal will always win. Always.

Dan, What good would that do, if I was just someone that hasn't been caught yet. No what i'm saying. Plenty of people out there have probably done terrible things, yet have never been caught.

Scary thought. It is estimated that there are hundreds of serial killers in this country and over the last 20 years, that have never been caught. Those guys probably have no criminal record, so what good would a search do then?

Women are under the mistaken belief that some search or typing their name on google is going to do anything. It doesn't.

People's pics do not change in a years time, unless they have some serious illness or they suddenly gained a ton of weight or lost alot. other than that, their pics will be exactly the same. Needed extremely recent pics is not needed.

I simply turn it off. Weird to say this, but I heard this on a recent episode of a tv show. A woman was upset at the loss of her brother. Her friend said, Just turn it off. You simply turn off your emotions. You might say, that can't be done, humans are emotional creatures. True. But anything can be turned off in your mind. If I choose, i can have very little emotions. Almost like a sociopath.

Men are just as attached to their child as any woman. I am extremely protective, even more so than most females. That whole maternal instinct is crap. Just cause a woman carries a child for 9 months, doesn't mean she is any more attached than the father.

See, what you are talking about is just dating. But, if you met a man you loved, that man should be your world. There is no way you should be putting your friends over your man. If you do, you have issues. And your career? your going to put that above your man? wow.

I would give everything that I expect from a girl. It would be equal. I want to be a woman's god. As she would be mine.

You don't even tell a man your kids are #1. That is the worst thing you could ever do. No man alive wants to be play 2nd fiddle. All men want to be the most important thing in his girls life. Its not selfish, its human nature.

I have a daughter, but honestly, would prefer to date women without kids. Sure its a selfish reason, but I am honest about. I want to be #1. women with kids always say the same thing over and over. My kids are my world, they come first. See, I for one, don't want to hear that. I want to be a woman's world. Though I love my daughter more than anything, I can also separate between being a father and being a man. I have a separate side. I was a man long before i became a father. Women with children can't seem to separate themselves away from their kids.

Livinglegend. Thanks for the compliment. But I do know what she is talking about. Ever see those guys with the huge arms and upper body, with the the stick legs. It is kinda funny looking. Unless your a competitive bodybuilder and need to have every single body part in perfect proportion, most guys don't work every single bodypart. I don't think i have ever worked my calfs or forearms. lol But, one should throw in some leg presses, especially if you have pencil legs. lol

Debi, so, you made time out of your ultra busy schedule, which is filled with shuttling your son around to wrestling meets, to meet him for what, maybe a half hour lunch and you wonder why he chose to not come? Really? Even if I really liked a girl, I would never meet that girl for only a half hour lunch.

Listen, if you can't find time, to get away from your son for a real date or meet, then you will never meet any guy.

Trisha, it is known fact that women on this site get tons of messages. Example. I know a woman, whom I know. That is on this site. She is probably about 350lbs, extremely plain jane face. Yet, she gets messages each and every day. That is how I know. Plus, i have talked to numerous women about this very subject.

The luxury is you having the ability to say no to that guy. I don't even have that option. I never get any messages or rarely if ever even get a message returned. That is the luxury I speak of. While you may get some perverts and some nut jobs, I am sure you also get some guys you like. That is far better than not getting any messages at all.

Charliesmom, read a bit closer. I also said that men don't get nearly or even remotely close to the messages that women get, so we can't just move onto the next girl. Thats the big difference.

Of course people are going to post their best pics. My pic for example, I took right after a workout and I did 30 pushups to pump myself up a bit. Is it misleading, well, is a girl wearing makeup misleading? No. We all want to make the best impression in our pics. Guys that workout like me, you don't think these guys are working out, right before they hit the clubs. Of course they do. Just as women are putting on their makeup and fussing over their hair before they go out. same thing.

That is the big problem with society today. Women have all these options. Any little thing they don't like, they can move onto the next guy. Too many options leads to being super overly picky and judgmental. You say one word, have a hang nail, don't like your hair, have the wrong tattoo, anything, Its off to the next guy.

My way of dealing with it, is I've pretty much given up on dating altogether. I'm a great guy. Extremely well built, good job, money, own 2 nice cars, yet, no dates, lol. I have a certain standard that I want in a woman, both in looks and personality and I simply will not compromise that. But as men, we don't have the luxury that "women" do. We can't just move onto the next woman. Cause us men on these forums don't get nearly the messages that women do.

Oh, once hot, always hot. The old myth about the body falling about is just that, a myth. If you workout, continue to push yourself to improve, you will never lose what you have built. So, losing ones look with age is a myth. It happens if you allow it to happen.
