Old fashioned phone etiquette
Posted: 3/26/2010 9:08:54 PM
When I call I say this is: (my real name), sunkist76 from PoF. of course they already have my number. so it's usually just a formality.

Need advice... dating two women.
Posted: 3/26/2010 8:59:22 PM
date BOTH, have sex with NEITHER. however, you need to be honest with both women (let each know they aren't the only 1 your seeing). then after a couple of more dates, "choose" which one you like the most.

dating and unemployment
Posted: 3/24/2010 1:10:03 AM
i think you can do both. as long as it's know by the other person from the beginning. that way you can plan dates accordingly.

We haven`t met,but she telling her neigbors.
Posted: 3/24/2010 12:43:48 AM
IMO, I think that you're ashamed that you are on a dating site. you have no idea what she asked/told the neighbors. besides, since you're a realtor, she could've googled you and found out the same information.

I think you did a pretty good job of stating what you are looking for, but you might want to elaborate more on your interests. List some local bands you like, and where you go to see them play

Wow, I'm glad you liked at least 1 thing about my profile. I don't do the listing because i want people to ask me. Just like you pointed out in your James Bond example.

But I do agree things such as the "2 hours" line is unessesary... most people want that, so it's redundant.


that is NOT true. somepeople will do a long distance relationship. However, I'm not interested in that so I put the 2 hour limit statement.

if I as a tall blonde guy wrote something like "Latinos need not apply" I'd be burned at the proverbial stake as a racist. Obviously that is important to you, so you might soften that up like "My ideal guy is a white male between 30-45."


That's why I said what race i WAS interested instead. Thanks, for the re-wording. I added it to my profile.

I mean, if Michael Jordan or Denzel Washington called you for a date, would you REALLY say no??


actually i would say no to them. yes, i know it's shocking. however, that's just the preference that i have. anyway, i think that's as good as my profile is going to get. thanks every for your help.

hey DenverSky5280:

1) took down some of my pictures

2) have that name because i drink ALOT of sunkist soda. don't know how that is giving off the wrong impression. it's more exciting that putting: vafemale (which i use too much)

3) took out the height/weight part

4) switched the part about cooking

5) fleshed out the "white guy" part

6) explained the sarcasm, quotes, and dude part

"Pratch" now allowing guys looking for friends (makes sense). Added that I'm OK with a guy that has kids. Can't help the pictures (not a smiler). Will have to work on the "what are you looking for in a guy part".

Thanks for the advice " luvnlife2". However, I have those restrictions because I'm only looking for dating/long-term. No need for a guy to contact me if he's not looking for the same thing.

Pictures on line

keep your pictures private and send them to people. or have a public picture on your profile, but just show the neck-down instead.

Matchmaking

Matchmaking
Posted: 3/13/2009 12:37:38 PM
Would you let someone else do the matchmaking? Let your friends, family, or if you're rich the lady from Millionaire Matchmaker setup everything (profile, who to go out on a date, etc). Maybe the other person can see something that you're doing wrong and "steer" you in the right direction (especially if you've been single for awhile). Or just give you a totally different perspective on things dealing with dating.

Do You Use the Update Note on Your Favorites???
Posted: 3/6/2009 1:46:26 PM
i use the feature. then again, i'm female so that doesn't really help with your survey to the men. since e-mail is deleted after 30 days, i use notes to put things about the person that i've learned.

Sarcasm red flag or not?
Posted: 2/20/2009 1:23:43 PM

trulio:So coming from a true friend it is acceptable, and honoured, for it is truly funny, but from the outside, may be not.


that is the key to sarcasm: knowing when/who to use it around.

mjr150:When I see sarcasm in a profile, I read it as someone who just wants to tell the world that they are bold and will speak their mind.


that is what i do. i just try to do it in a "funny" way.

Women going to bars alone
Posted: 1/25/2009 1:36:24 PM

If its a bar that has a lot of live music or dancing, I wouldn't think its odd


i go to bars for karoake or live music. then in-between singing or sets i play NTN bar games. that's a good way to meet people also. you're bonding trying to make the bar place high in the standings.

Women going to bars alone
Posted: 1/25/2009 1:32:27 PM

I wont go to bars on my own, as i feel like a goldfish in a goldfish bowl with everyone looking at me and talking about me... thing is i always assume they talking about me and looking at me cos I am ugly or something.


i feel the same way in the beginning. however, i always go to bars with a friend/co-worker first before i go back alone. then i don't feel out of place.

Reading Between The Lines
Posted: 1/15/2009 2:20:09 PM
When e-mailing/talking to someone, are you quicker to notice when things don't quite "match up" to the type of person they protrayed themselves to be in their profile? What I'm trying to say is, are you better at figuring out who is just telling you what you want to hear so you'll meet and the ones that are actually interested in dating?

Forum usage effecting your dating?
Posted: 1/12/2009 5:34:04 PM
i like reading/commenting the forums. i think a person should be interested in what i'm thinking. so if they don't agree with what i say in the forums, then they really shouldn't date me.

Giving or Asking for soneone's phone number...
Posted: 1/12/2009 5:21:47 PM

I look for chemistry in this order: Profile, email, IM, phone, face to face.


i do things in the same order. when it is time to talk on the phone, i offer my number. if they really are interested, they won't hesistate to call. if not, then i know they didn't want to take it further.

Exclusivity
Posted: 1/11/2009 1:22:24 PM

Some further break this down into exclusivity and committed; exclusive means you are only dating each other, but might not know each other well enough yet to have decided to be a couple. Once the pair says "hey, this might be it", they become committed to each other... which means they are no longer just dating but have moved to a relationship. Yep, people get confused by whether they are 'just dating' or 'in a relationship

wow, i didn't know there was a difference.

Hi Sunkist, Why not choose men who live closer to you?


i have dated men closer before. however, something always happens. i end up with men that live far away (but within the state). i personally don't mind the distancce. it's always the guy that ends up breaking it off. guess he finds a vagina that he can see more than two weekends a month.

my pattern is: e-mail here, personal e-mail, talk on phone, meet in person. all of this usually takes about 2 weeks... 3 at the most.

Differences between dating websites, question...

i dislike paying sites. whenever a paying member contacted me, i just gave them my e-mail address so we could continue to talk after their time was up. that way we wouldn't loose contact.

Posted: 12/24/2008 3:55:07 PM
in this situation you shoudn't pull your profile. you are not even dating the guy; just FRIENDS. when you do become exclusive with someone you can just change your status but keep your profile up.
