Questions About A Guy's Behavior

40 year old male

From your profile

I exchanged numbers with a guy here.
We're both in our late 20's.
He said his girlfriend died several months ago

Something is not adding up with your story.

advise needed
Posted: 6/28/2016 12:40:22 AM
If things went so well on the 1st date. have you planned a 2nd date? Has he asked you out again during the daily texting? Have you asked him? If not, I would say he (or you) is just looking for a text pal. Youre both busy with kids and work but if the interest was there, you would find time to see each other again.

Marriage is Pointless
Posted: 6/26/2016 5:20:16 AM

Marriage is pointless

This from the guy who has never had a relationship at 36 so obviously he hasnt found anyone he wants to marry (or found anyone that wants to marry him). Quoting statistics doesnt mean you know what youre talking about.

In my inbox yesterday from a pof member.

I am looking for a linebacker for my football team and you have that look. Interested?

Like, wtf? Obviously this tool knows nothing about football if he thinks I look like a linebacker. Some guys send stuff like this
to women they know they have zero chance with.

crazy gym stalker I met from here
Posted: 6/24/2016 9:35:57 AM
^^Agree with this. Keep a record of this harassment in case you need to file a restraining order at some point.
Join a different gym so you do not need to see him. Do not engage him in conversation. This will only encourage him to continue.

Please review - beginning to feel defeated
Posted: 6/23/2016 3:43:13 AM

The "about me" section should all be deleted.

Agree with this. Especially the part about wanting to plan another child. At this point, youre looking to talk to people and go on dates. This sounds like you want a baby right away and will skip the relationship part.

You need to start over.

Yes, delete all of it including mail filters and start over.

Is this normal
Posted: 6/21/2016 4:20:37 PM
Text or call him the morning of the date to make sure he will show. If he doesnt reply, make other plans. I wouldnt go to the meeting spot unless you hear from him confirming that he will be there.

Men are cruel in Mass/Southern NH
Posted: 6/20/2016 8:37:10 AM
I would never agree to meet anyone in a mall parking lot. I picture some serial killer pulling up in a white van, forcing me inside and my family reporting me missing or worse. Maybe your date intended to rob or assault you. Consider yourself lucky he bailed on lunch.

Asking for a review please
Posted: 6/18/2016 11:54:20 AM

I was retired before I bought the 4 bedroom home 7 years ago

So you retired at 32? Maybe retired on disability is the real story. Either that or youre alot older than the 39 you claim to be.

Old Pictures
Posted: 6/18/2016 11:39:20 AM
Just as bad are the ones that post a picture of a picture. One guy that had those messaged me. I could tell by his feathered hair style that it was from the 90's. Ive also seen profiles where the member used his DL photo or work ID as his profile pic.

Girldfriend and my motorcycle
Posted: 6/16/2016 9:43:25 AM
Saying the bike doesnt handle well with 2 adults prolly wont fly since youve already told her you took you ex's on rides. Not sure why you would have told her that since you think she is alot bigger than they were. Truth works best. Tell her the 2 of you together is over the weight limit for the bike.

Had enough
Posted: 6/14/2016 6:42:02 PM
He comes in and out of your life because you let him, still holding on to hope that it will eventually turn into something. It wont. He isnt interested. He likes the idea of having you around as a backup. Never a starter, just a backup. You are fooling yourself if you think this will change. Youve wasted enough time on this clown. With the right guy, there wont be so many question marks. (Been there, done that)

pathetic and sad

Yes it is. Messaging women insults because they dont respond to your 'nice' messages is lame.

it works

How does it work exactly? Sending rude messages will get you reported and blocked. They may reply but that doesnt mean
they are interested in meeting you.

If you dont want to take a woman out to dinner, then dont ask her out to dinner. Simple. It isnt right to refer to her as a whore because she accepted your offer. What would you call her if she went home with you at the end of the night? Smh.

Blocked Users
Posted: 5/31/2016 2:20:56 PM
This has happened to me as well. I think if the user has deleted or hidden his profile, it will fall off of your list. Also, if he hasnt been active in several months. I posed the same question once about the limit on blocked users. As far as I know, there is no limit to how many users you can block.

Why would a girl ignore my text?
Posted: 5/26/2016 3:36:47 AM
No real mystery here. It sounds like she changed her mind. Maybe she had a nice time and it was nice to meet you and thats all.
Dont spend so much time texting and communicating before the date would be my advice. Plan the date soon so you dont feel 'led on' when it doesnt work out.

25-40 range would probably be good for you. I wouldnt go too far past 40 if you want to have children. For myself, I like someone my age or a few years older.

wants to date but nothing serious
under 1 year

Then this

not motivated 99.99 percent of the time
Im too lazy to even reply
My game feels so weak and limp now

The issue is you, not the girls youre meeting. Your profile makes you sound very selfish and self absorbed. What do you bring to the table?

Who lies more when it comes to online dating profiles?
Posted: 5/21/2016 9:37:24 AM
Lying isnt specific to one gender over another. Both do it equally. Some women about weight, some men about height are the most common I think. Ive met some that have lied about their age, smoking and about being single. Those are common too.

Youre getting ahead of yourself here. You havent met her yet and wont for another 3 weeks. Alot can happen in that time.
Two people decide if a relationship is going to happen, not one. She has to want one with you as well. Wait and see if you actually meet first.
