New Profile review appreciated
Posted: 12/6/2012 10:21:46 AM
Yeah... headline was a little weak, what do you think about my new one?

I made a couple other changes after watching the profile advice video. Any more thoughts?

Thank you!

What am I doing wrong?
Posted: 12/5/2012 1:04:00 PM
In your message, you may want to get rid of the "Looking great in your pics :)", because while it may be what initially attracted you and is more tasteful than some of the messages I've heard about, women seem to worry that's all you care about.

Also, I would get rid of the 'Anyway hopefully' in the closing... assume she is going to message you back in the message. Otherwise you show a little bit less confidence and give her reason to wonder if maybe there is a reason not to get back to you.

I would remove the smiley face and especially not have both a smiley face and a lol

What am I doing wrong?
Posted: 12/5/2012 10:46:46 AM
Whole lot of pictures... some pictures are great but I'd get it down to one row of pictures.

Your description kind of feels like you are trying to say all the right things instead of just being yourself.

For example: "I am very ambitious, exciting, adventurous and romantic" All great things but why should she believe you? Maybe say something that shows your ambitious, talk about something romantic you'd like to do with her, show her you are exciting instead of just saying you are. Similarly, crack a joke instead of saying you have a sense of humor.

Just my two cents

Hello,

I just wrote up a new profile, short and sweet that I think tells a little bit about me without going over board.

Could you give me some advice and let me know what you think?

Thank you!

Hello,

would you go from dating to friend back to dating again?
Posted: 3/21/2009 7:58:05 PM
Not necessarily, I have one girl with whom I have a long distance friendship, it was discussed and could have been more if it weren't for the distance but we're friends and I still enjoy talking to her. If somehow one of us were to move closer to the other(and we weren't otherwise involved) there may be a possibly of it turning into a relationship.

However on the other hand there is always the thought that if we're friends and things are going great then a relationship could potentially mess things up, personally I think I'd go for it, though it always depends on individual circumstances. For example if I was previously heartbroken or very disappointed when she wanted to be just friends, it might make it harder to risk going through that again.

Phobia
Posted: 11/20/2008 11:58:21 PM
I think you could find men who would accept it.. I certainly would suggest at leas trying to. I can understand the phobia however until you try it again it just becomes a bigger and bigger deal.. I would suggest trying it again with a friend in the car at a time of day with little traffic, or going to therapy, or maybe trying it with a driver's ed teacher who has his own wheel and can take over at any point in time if needed. It won't completely stop a guy from dating you but may hinder your life in general.

How to interpret this? Am I way off base and dense about guys or not?!
Posted: 11/13/2008 1:22:06 AM
I think you are probably interepting things correctly. I would definitely suggest that you don't listen to your ex.. odds are he is still at least a little jealous, whether or not he'll admit it to hiself or anyone else could be a different story. he may be hoping that if you fail enough times you'll come back to him or something.. anyway point is he isn't the most reliable source of information.

As far as whether the guys are looking for sex or a relationship.. I'd say give them a relationship without sex and if they stick around you'll know. There are guys out here looking for relationships and not sex.. I should know, still a virgin and waiting for that right girl to come along.

Questions for the Guys....
Posted: 10/17/2008 2:44:21 AM
Personality is more important than looks.. however that doesn't mean that looks don't matter.

My own thoughts on the issue are that I want a woman who is healthy and it seems like being overweight is less healthy. Also I have the attitude that if you can't take care of and love youself, how can you be expected to love anyone else or expect anyone to love you.. though my thoughts on that have been changing a little bit since seeing the Bullshit Episode on obesity lately. I still tend to prefer average-sized girls but my attitude has changed.

It might be worth trying to cut back your food intake and do some exercise in order to lose some of that weight because judging from your pictures, it seems to be more than just genetics causing your weight to be that high. Perhaps it would be easier if you could find an exercise partner so you could both keep each other on track.

Also I find it interesting that I actually see people differently once I start to particularly like or dislike them. As in I will look at someone who I previously wouldn't have given a second glance and think is quite beautiful once I've gotten to know her. So in that regard personality is more powerful than looks, however looks still get the initial attraction, which in all honesty is typically more likely to determine whether or not you send someone a message on an online dating site, unless I have very similiar interests or particularly like her profile description. Also if there is no physical attraction I highly doubt I can have a good sex life with her which would be important once a relationship gets serious.

I would suggest you continue trying to make first contact both through messages and IM.. you may find someone eventually. Also post over in the profile reviews section, they may have some advice for getting more messages/responses.

Good luck! I hope I didn't offend you with anything here, I'm being brutally honest and just trying to give you an idea of what goes through my mind and probably other guys when they view your profile.

Hype: The Obama effect
Posted: 10/14/2008 1:07:01 AM
First of all I realized something recently.. I watched this movie on the same day as I started taking ADD meds.. I think it may have had something to do with why I was so absorbed in the movie and liked it so much and was just so obsessed with making sure it was accurate before showing it to others. So while I still agree with much of it I'm thinking it might have been what caused me to originally post this.

Sorry stella blue for missing the last post.. let me reply to this one.
Though of course I like accuracy in my news, I believe that anything that prevents TV or radio stations from saying exactly what they want limits their freedom of speech


Also I disagree that it is impossible to social climb anymore.

My dad escaped communism about 25-30 years ago with a suitcase and $100, he did stay with a relative here for a few months but didn't come with much(claimed he was going on vacation and therefore couldn't bring much, including not being able to bring documentation to prove he had graduated highschool or college). He very quickly got a job and started making some money. Eventually around the time of my birth he came up with an invention(contraction monitor for pregnant mothers lol) and had a company interested in paying him ~$2 million for the rights to his patent. Unfortunately 3 days before the sale went through the company was bought by another one who blocked all new contracts.. but my point is, it is possible. Though unfortunately, we are certainly not rich and do have to watch what we spend, we are doing well and all that started from very little. With a little luck we could have been doing very well.

I think that with the right idea becoming rich isn't that hard to do. Currently I have 2 ideas which I think could be big money makers(one of which is a little shady so I'm not planning on going through with it..). To me having money just means having security.. I'm very happy with my current lifestyle and think I would stick to it but it would be nice to not have to worry about money, particularly upon starting a family... so hopefully if this idea takes off that will happen within say 5-10 years. I don't mean to get too far off-topic but that is where I'm coming from.

So I think all you really need is an idea and a little luck and the willingness to work at it. You also have to make sure it is properly balanced with family life and what not.

This is a very interesting article about Obama's tax policies in my opinion, I would highly suggest everyone read it: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122385651698727257.html#


Very interesting HalftimeDad..

Sorry I'm going to continue to be slow to respond.. the semester is getting crazy.

Are men intimidated by women making first move?
Posted: 10/4/2008 3:29:04 PM
I'm not intimidated.. it does seem like lots of guys are though. It can be nice to let the guy make the move sometimes though, seems to be what society somewhat expects and makes us feel more manly. lol So, I would suggest waiting for a little bit once you are ready for the next step, whatever that may be.
Maybe hint at it first. For example with a now-ex who I happened to meet online, we were talking about swing dancing and I was trying to gauge whether or not I should bring up meeting yet, so I said I'll have to take you swing dancing sometime if we eventually decide to meet. Then I was able to gauge her reaction and determine that she was interested in meeting and make sure she wasn't worried it was too soon.
You may be able to do something similiar. I'll have to show you something I've made, something I can do, etc when we meet.. then hopefully he'll get the idea that he can suggest meeting and if he doesn't soon then you can bring it up. Same with talking on the phone, bring up accents or ask if he prounces any words in a funny way, which should be a good lead in to would you like to talk on the phone.

Another way about it might be to simply ask him if he likes making the first moves in a relationship or if he minds the woman taking the lead sometimes. Then argue your point and hopefully in the future he won't mind you taking the lead.

Hype: The Obama effect
Posted: 10/4/2008 12:14:17 PM
Response to mulatta316 when asked about vice president, etc:
Well what I hear from a relative living in Alaska "She[Palin] says exactly what she plans to do and the does it, exactly as she said she would". Perhaps a little inexperienced, but I'd prefer an inexperienced vice president to a inexperienced president.

Certainly Obama can't be completely sure of anything but if everytime something has been done the government makes less money, you don't do it again just to get back at those 'evil' rich people for the sake of fairness, hoping for different results this time. Watch this video to see it in his own words: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUfo-RxkXA8 He's obviously never heard of the Laffer curve.. or just doesn't care.

Certainly it would be nice to have it possible as a future path, but I am not among that 1% of the population(or anywhere close to being rich). I say good for them for being rich, they are our bosses I don't want to punish them because they pay us money in order to make their fortunes. Sure they have it easy now that they have money but very few of the currently wealthy start out wealthy when young, most of them deserve it for having a great idea and/or putting in a lot of work in order to start their companies(which then go on to employ many other people).

All of that being said, personally I'm in favor of the FairTax.

raiderfan18:
I don't know whether or not I'm happier than I was 8 years ago, I was too young to really be thinking about politics at the time. However while Reagan asked if people were happier than they were 4 years ago under his presidency, McCain and Bush are two seperate people. They may even hold similiar views but they are different people and I doubt McCain has been voting for something just because Bush supports it.

I find this to be an interesting part of Obama's website(granted it's in the community blogs but nevertheless it is on his own site): http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/group/MarxistsSocialistsCommunistsforObama

I agree with Obsidian71, a lot of things need to be changed the education system is horrible. Personally, I'd be all in favor of completely doing away with public schooling.. I believe public schooling and more specifically teacher's unions are the reason that Americans are not doing as well as far as education and therefore part of why jobs are going overshores..

Interesting idea ken2999.. not sure that I agree, it seems like a pretty unlikely conspiracy theory but interesting never the less. I'm not sure how they can even consider the fairness doctrine, it completely goes against freedom of speech.. anyway that's getting offtopic..

I tried to address most of the issues brought up.. tell me if I missed something you wanted to hear my opinion on lol

Do They Not Believe That We Know What They Are After?
Posted: 10/2/2008 10:08:56 PM
If he truly is married and looking for more than friends, then I would say it doesn't seem to be morally right. However there is a slim possiblity that he may not have many friends, just moved or something and is indeed just be looking for friends, though granted it seems unlikely. Maybe he is here for the forums. There may also be some chance that he is still legally married but seperated? Though I guess that is also unlikely because he would put something like that in his profile. Point is I can understand not wanting to contact him but unless you know for sure(say you contact him and he replies asking what your favorite sex position is lol) I'm not sure that you can judge him.
It is interesting to wonder what he hopes might come from it.. it doesn't seem like anyone would answer that request because of that chance.

The thing that makes me think maybe there is a chance it truly is just friends is that I would think that the kind of people who would cheat would find it easy enough to lie and say he is single and the other person would never know.

Hype: The Obama effect
Posted: 10/2/2008 2:39:46 PM
Thank you themadfiddler! That is exactly what I was looking for, something that is biased in the opposite direction so that I can pick through the information and come to a closer version of the truth. I still think the movie made some good points but certainly it was biased and it is nice to see things from both sides. Unfortunately it's very hard to find news, movies, etc. that are unbiased.

About the comment that being a vet doesn't make you more qualified, I agree. However I suppose what I meant to say was that I think that what he did as a vet shows good character, for example choosing to stay as a captive when given the option to be released and instead going through torture. Sure Kerry was a vet with 3 unearned purple hearts, doesn't make him much more qualified(to be honest though maybe a little, afterall he would have a better idea of what the troops were going through).

A reply to a comment made by cosmopolitician:
I think that McCain truly will lower taxes, because the hope is that lower taxes will actually result in the government making more money. If I thought that lowering taxes would somehow hurt the economy(as well as how much money the government makes), then I would be much more likely to vote for Obama. Unfortunately, I believe that Obama doesn't know what he is talking about when it comes to the economy.

Probably a dating site isn't the best place to be arguing like this if I hope to get dates.. but it can be fun to remain civil while getting a few people riled up and angry as well as trying to get to that closer version of the truth.

I Predict That This Will Happen If He Becomes President.......
Posted: 10/2/2008 3:22:22 AM
I would like to point out that Obama may very well win because of racism.. I have a friend who is voting for him, because he is black. He tells me it isn't racist because he's had black friends in the past. Remember racism works both ways.

If Obama wins:
We would get a lot of change, for the worse. The taxes will rise and the economy will fall. Upon being told that in the past every time the capital gains tax was raised the government made less money and vice versa, Obama said he would still raise it because it may or may not happen this time and because it's fair. So lots of small businesses would go out of business and the economy in general would be worse for it. Probably our political relations with other countries would change for the worse. Socialist healthcare. One upside: people might start seeing how ridiculous some liberal policies really are and republicans would be back in power for a long time to come.

If McCain wins:
Not much will change, hopefully we'll drill offshores. Economy might have a change at getting back to normal. We'll be in Iraq until the job is finished. There could be problems just nothing big.

Obviously I'm biased but I really think it is what would happen and would love to argue any points I have made.

Hype: The Obama effect
Posted: 10/2/2008 2:43:18 AM
Well I like McCain in general. He's a war vet, has experience, and has choosen a great vice president. I have done research and looked through the sites. As I admitted the movie strengthened my beliefs, not changed them.

Obama.. well I guess he seemed harmless and I just didn't realize just how badly he could hurt the country and it was interesting to see his flip-flopping.

One thing that particularly scared me:
Obama was told that every single time in the past that the Capital gains tax was raised, the country made less money from it and every time it's been lowered the country has made more money. Then he was asked why he would like to raise that tax, his answer: "Well that may or may not happen this time" and then talked about how it is only fair to take money from the rich, I don't care if it's fair if it hurts everyone then it's ridiculous to do.

Is that detailed enough? I would be happy to answer any other questions or debate anything.

However I truly would like to know if there were any flaws in the movie before showing it to friends and would like to know how Obama can be supported, so that I can hopefully argue and maybe change some minds as unlikely as that may be.

Hello, I just finished watching the movie "Hype: The Obama effect"(found here: http://www.hypemovie.com/)
Previously I was slightly leaning towards McCain, now I am fully supporting him and very scared of what might happen if Obama gets elected.
I'm trying to stay open-minded.. if anyone knows any movies the show things from the opposite point of view, I would be interested in hearing som titles.
Does anyone have any thoughts on the movie? I'm wondering if anyone has found any factual errors for example.
If you are going to vote for Obama, could you tell me what he has achieved or why you think America will be better under him than McCain?

Dealing with religion/science while dating.
Posted: 9/29/2008 10:33:53 PM
I would say don't discuss it for a while since it can be contraversial. Personally I love to hear the beliefs of others and to discuss that kind of thing though. I always find it interesting to see how others differ in there beliefs. I try to stay open minded and hope that we can both learn something, or at least see where eachother is coming from and respect each others opinions.

Any advice on my profile?

Hello,
I’ve been away from POF for a while but I’m back and single again so I just spent some time editing my profile and was wondering if anyone would have any advice. I think I like my current headline.. I finally have girls viewing my profile on their own but would appreciate any advice anyone may have.

Psychics/Clairvoyants ~ cynic or believer??
Posted: 9/29/2008 3:40:59 PM
I don't believe it. I don't see how it could be possible given the currently believed laws of physics and our current level of technology. Though it is believed that someday we'll be able to use MRI's to read brain waves and figure out what people are thinking, it's too weak to say be picked up other humans.. the noise from other sources is enough to throw it off balance.

Also I know it was already brought up but why has nobody yet proved their powers, completed this challenge, and won a million dollars, it's been around for a long time now: http://www.randi.org/joom/challenge-info.html

Afterall, I don't think I've seen many psychics who do it for free, and they all seem to want to prove they are the real deal.

basic question about creationism logic
Posted: 9/29/2008 2:33:34 PM
From what I hear(my source is the episode of Penn and Teller's Bullshit! discussing the bible), there were many 'prophets' and miracle workers around the time Jesus lived, he just happened to become the most popular one.
I would think that it would not count as collaborating evidence. All of the gospels were written about a 100 years after Jesus actually died, so none of it is based on first hand accounts.

Can women really go without sex????
Posted: 9/26/2008 10:52:24 PM
I've gone 21(almost 22) years without sex, yeah it's definitely possible. Also remember though that at least stereotypically woman have a lower sexual desire.

I'd say try going without sex for a while, you can do it.

How can you tell if a guy is becoming attached?
Posted: 9/26/2008 10:48:08 PM
Reguarly contact is good, and it's good that he seems to be relaxing, both seem to be signs. Another big sign would be if he introduces you to friends or family and people who are close in his life, it means he wants it to be a long term thing.
If you think he may be feeling closer you might want to just talk to him about it.

Kissing in Kindergarten?????????
Posted: 9/26/2008 10:44:20 PM
My first kiss was 8th grade so it is surprising to hear that people were kissing at that age. However my last girlfriend had her first kiss when she was in kindergarden and is still 18 and virgin and waiting for marriage before having sex.

At least she was able to tell you about it. Maybe that's before the age where things are hidden from parents but I would definitely look at that as a plus, just make sure she knows she can talk to you about guys and that kind of thing in the future.

How do you kill your emotions?
Posted: 9/26/2008 1:19:23 AM
I don't normally experiment with herbal remedies or drugs but was pretty hurt during my last break up and I asked the same question to a friend, who gave me St. John's Wort. It worked, I took a pill and all emotions went away. However I only tried it once, and while it really did work, I really wanted to experience those emotions and I'm glad I did. I felt more human and it's one more experience in this life that I'm glad I didn't miss out on, as crazy as that sounds. I'm stronger for it.

So my advice would be let time heal the wounds for you. Someday you'll find someone better and forget all about the current person.

What's The Point?
Posted: 9/26/2008 12:59:48 AM
Interesting question. I don't know that there is much of a point. After all even if we are able to affect the people around us and they affect everyone around them and so on down the line, someday the last human will die out, since someday this universe will run out of energy or collapse or something. Granted that's far off but someday it will happen.

An afterlife would be great but I feel like there aren't any guarentees. Basically I've decided that life is short and you should do what you can to enjoy it.

Be glad of what you have. No matter how bad life may be, you are alive right now and that's more then many people have.

Anyway always an interesting thing to think about.

When a woman tells you what you can and can't do...

It's a shame she's been cheated on before, the same thing happening more than once definitely can make you paranoid about it happening again. I would say they have to trust eachother if they want a relationship to work, and risk getting heartbroken and cheated on. They just have to believe that nice guys who won't cheat do exist..

Why are men so bad at asking questions?
Posted: 9/16/2008 1:13:03 AM
I agree.. if you want to keep the conversation going then yes you ask questions back. So I think you are reading the situation correctly usually, it's possible he just doesn't have good conversational skills.

Anyone know any good miracle Berry recipes?
Posted: 6/23/2008 10:36:22 PM
Thanks! Sound like interesting ideas. I would definitely like to try some vinegar with them.
I'm thinking it could be fun to get some people to try the miracle berry without knowing it and then see what happens when half of the people are eating something delicious and the other half can barely eat the same food. See how honest or polite my friends are. lol
It's probably going to be at least a few weeks until it happens, I'll post back here if I can find it and send you a message if I get interesting results. I may wait until http://www.tastetrips.com/ comes out with their miracle berry gum or berry strips since it would be easier to play this prank then.

I just ordered some Miracle Berries and have tried them with lemons, apples, and a few other things. Anyway I'm just wondering if anyone knows any recipes that work well with Miracles Berries. I'd like to hold a dinner party and serve something is barely editable without Miracle Berries but great with them.
If anyone is interested in leanring more about Miracles Berries, a fruit that makes sour things taste sweet, and some sweet things sweeter, check out this page(cheapest prices I've found): http://www.miraculin.com/
Thanks!

I'd be interested if something was organized for younger people to get together if that's what you mean.

Why are children a problem?
Posted: 6/23/2008 11:25:20 AM
If I met a woman and liked her and then found out she had children it wouldn't be such a big deal. However if I can pick whether or not to date a woman with children, I'd pick the one who doesn't so that I can start my own family and raise my own children with her.

Guys, Do you really want us to be honest after the first date?
Posted: 6/23/2008 11:17:11 AM
I love it when a girl is honest with me. If I screwed up or was unintentionally rude or something I want to know it so I don't do it again.

Why are they still saying that they want a girl .............
Posted: 6/22/2008 10:38:15 PM
I find myself doing it all the time. I usually call women, girls and men, guys. I have been trying not to do so but it is a hard habit to break and I don't mean any disrespect if I do so.

How many women is enough?!
Posted: 6/22/2008 10:35:53 PM
If I found a woman I really liked(and thought the relationship could work out) I'd stop looking around here. I may still post in the forums or update my profile until it was clear that I was in a relationship though.

Why do guys talk about how wealthy they are?
Posted: 6/22/2008 10:25:52 PM
Guys talk about it because they think it comes off as being impressive. I think it's kind of their way of saying if this relationship went somewhere I have enough money to take care of you. Luckily I've learned not too do this though, since it doesn't come off right.

Guys dancing uninvited with girls
Posted: 6/22/2008 10:22:54 PM
I usually try to ask the girl to dance instead of simply trying to jump right in. Of course I usually going swing dancing or ballroom dancing where it's a little harder to dance by yourself, and if someone stands around for long enough they'll be asked to dance.

perpetual motion are there any amature inventors/scientists here
Posted: 6/17/2008 10:47:26 PM
It's not possible to build a perpetual motion machine that runs off of it's own output. However if you think of something like a fire, you add a match and get a flame bigger than what you started with. It's possible that somewhere within his machine he has a chemical reaction or something that makes it temporarily look like that is the case.

Could someone look at my profile? Thanks
Posted: 6/17/2008 12:08:40 PM
Thank you both of you! Some excellent criticism. I have made a bunch of changes and I'm sure I'll make more. I'll try to find a better picture if possible. I was kinda figuring I want my picture to look good but slightly worse than I actually look so that a girl will find more than she bargained for first date rather than be disappointed. That might not make sense though, I'll look through other picture and maybe put up one or two more.

I have changed the headline.. not sure if t's any better. I guess originally I was just looking but then never got around to changing it.

Is height important guys?
Posted: 6/15/2008 9:31:43 PM
I think that it is something that is fairly unimportant, just might not get the inital attraction. Luckily, being 6'1'' I don't have to worry about it too much.
