Why women dont say too much?
Posted: 7/17/2008 7:35:42 AM
By a 'natter' I take it you mean talking verbally, and not just a series of pm's/emails?

To talk verbally you at least need to chat on the phone, but heaven forbid actually meeting someone in real life. Shock horror!

Internet dating was never invented for such an occurrence. :-)

Is there any point a bloke contacting a woman on POF?
Posted: 7/17/2008 7:18:21 AM
Msg 35: Yeah I know. :-)

I get on fine with women in real life, but on a message board/dating site - No Way 'Josie!'

OP: Not really, unless you have zero expectations.

Women prefer chatting to/meeting other women ( a point I made on another thread)

Just relax and have a laugh at the absurdity of internet 'dating' like I do. :-)

Why women dont say too much?
Posted: 7/17/2008 6:58:32 AM
Women much prefer talking to other women as they always agree with each other (as seen so often on the POF message board)

The reason why women don't say much via pm is that they have so many men after them they haven't got the time to say much except "thanks but no thanks" or some illiterate drivel in txt spk , or not reply at all.

Purely anecdotal of course.

This *is* a site for women to become friends with one another isn't it? :-)

The photo quality on POF leaves a lot to be desired. My message board photo looks different to the one on my profile yet they are one and the same of course.

I look grumpy on the mb yet seem to have mustered a smile on my profile..........And the actual photo on my camera is even better.

As for what I look like in real life - Well, I guess no-one on here will ever know. Women only seem to date knobheads :-)

Thatcher - Dead?
Posted: 7/15/2008 3:52:47 AM
Thatcher gets the blood flowing and veins in the neck bulging for some people consumed by hate.

Yet the same peeps like to think of themselves as caring, sharing 'socialists'

Just as everyone needs to love, everyone needs to hate as well.

When Thatcher pops her cloggs a new hate figure will be needed. As Pinochet has already departed there aren't too many left.

George Bush and Sepp Blatter are the only ones left? :-)

Unless two people have actually met in real life there's no way of knowing whether or not someone is 'their type'

Photos can be very misleading (and let's face it, most go on what the photo suggests) whilst profiles tend to be a description of how people perceive themselves.

I'll soon be uploading a mega smiling photo and change my image entirely...........but it's still the same ol' me. :-)

As for those with no photo - what can one say?

What Has Been Your Costliest Mistake?
Posted: 7/12/2008 6:00:32 AM
Paying a fee to join an online dating site.

Only kidding of course. I can't imagine anyone paying to join such an outfit.

Luckily POF is free which is why I'm on here.

I've no wish to actually pay to be messed around with, and besides there's loads of women on here who are on 'paying sites' (but women can sign-up 'gratis' of course - sexism in the extreme imo) which I can view for free - but can't reply.

Probably just as well. But I know who they are. :-)

Of course the Brits are insular. Well, most of them anyway.

However, many years ago I invested heavily in the Euro as my 'currency of choice'

I'm just waiting for a lovely english lady (who's looking for a 'divorce relationship' to take me to the cleaners)

Posted: 7/10/2008 5:19:31 AM
I was under the impression that paedophilia was cool and trendy (which is why the BBC and Channel 4 are so interested in 'promoting' it by having assorted programmes covering the topic.

Mind you, Ch4 seem also to promote bestiality.

Anyway, as 'they' say "What's normal?" in sexuality matters.

Luckily I prefer them 'old' That's women, and not animals. :-)

NB: I listen to Gaydar Radio on a regular basis (great dance music) so I've a pretty good idea what the 'gay community' want................And the BBC/CH4 love gays.

Could you could live forever without any love?
Posted: 7/10/2008 4:34:53 AM
I've been a 'victim' of obsessive love.

It all ended in tears when she died from a brain tumour. No tears on my part, just regret in a 'Always on my mind' (Pet Shop Boys version) kind of way.

She liked the PSB's ..........and her memory lives on I can assure you.

She's still in 'contact' with me via spiritualism. FACT!

Relationships are very transitory. Nobody falls 'in love' these days.

'Relationships' are just like the latest mobile phone with peeps always looking to 'upgrade' and then throw their old mobile away.

Some people are on PAYG and others get lumbered with a contract which has financial penalties if you cancel.

Think about it. :-)

According to POF's 'what women don't like list' politics is at or near the top.

Women do however like going out, staying in, cats, dogs, a cuddle on the couch with a DVD and a bottle of wine, their children and grandchildren.............and that's about it really.

Phrases that put you off someone's profile
Posted: 7/7/2008 4:22:00 AM
"Non judgemental" = Judgemental.

"My friends tell me I look younger" = Their friends are liars.

"I'll try anything once" = Except?

"Wacky soh" = Likes situation comedies.

"Not looking for a one night stand" = Get me drunk and I'm an easy lay.

People say what they mean when they're sober and mean what they say when they're drunk....so the saying goes.

Excuses For Not Meeting...

People meet people every time they go out. Trouble is, meeting people off an internet dating site is another matter.

I wasn't aware that people are actually supposed to meet one another after pm'ing for months/years on the internet.

Get real!

As for women's excuses - who needs them? But many a book could be compiled about them.

Open air music festivals.... ban on umbrella's?
Posted: 7/5/2008 4:31:26 AM
Next weekend http://www.rotw.org.uk takes place in Hitchin.

In previous years the festival has been free and held in various venues throughout the town, but as young people dropped so much litter and started a few drunken fights with each other the organisers have had to hold this year's event in an enclosed area and charge an admission fee (bit like Glastonbury I suppose)

But it's only a fiver as opposed to Glastonbury's £150 - and the music is better and less mainstream.

Intimate Encounter's
Posted: 6/24/2008 10:52:10 AM
It all depends upon how much a woman has had to drink as to whether she wants an intimate encounter or not.

Has *any* woman on here had sex for the first time with a new bloke whilst she's been 100% sober?

That's my rhetorical question for today. :-)

But men have to play fourth fiddle to women's children, grandchildren, and pets.

And I'm not talking from personal experience either. I just know (in a Jungian sort of way)

I would hazard a guess that anyone who wanted an Intimate Encounter wouldn't be on an internet dating site. They'd be down the pub or wherever 'flashing it about' for real.

Women on dating sites who claim they want an Intimate Encounter are wind-up merchants imo............And it's probably just a bloke with a female profile/photo anyway.

Controversial? :-)

Hmmm. I mentioned only yesterday on another thread about women and their pets.

Pets (esp dogs) are a good conversational opener. A woman with a dog will get loads of 'opportunities'

Children/grandchildren are a good starting point an' all.

I've none of the above as they're so expensive to maintain. :-)

Why is other relationship always seen as dodgy??
Posted: 6/22/2008 5:20:45 AM
There's no need to be put off by 'Other Relationship' In fact I take little note of what women put in their profile as they invariably talk in opposites.

Any relationship will do for me, except 'Long term email' :-)

Seriously of course, everyone on here starts with an email relationship - but rarely get any further no matter how few/many 'must not' options they choose.

You can't pick your future partner by 'ticking boxes' and 'must nots'.........All the women would end up with John Major? Rhetorical statement.

And just as an aside, how many women on here have requested a 'Long Term Relationship' and yet ended up having a 'One night stand' ? Rhetorical question.

Amongst others I've had relationships with a woman (Italian) with diplomatic number plates who lived in St John's Wood, and a domestic cleaner from Tottenham.

I like juxtapositions.

Oh yes, occupation has no bearing on how two people 'get on'

I'm very open-minded and non judgemental, which is why I don't have any 'must nots' on my profile.

NB: Not having an occupation I'm undateable. Obviously? :-)
