Is doing a trade ok??
Posted: 1/18/2014 12:51:26 AM
Of course women doing a trade is ok.
The days of women staying home doing the house work. doing meals. Being barefoot and pregnant are long gone.
Men do jobs that once were female jobs. Eg. Chefs, cleaners, Nurses, Carers to name of few even childcare.

Is it okay for a woman to lie about her age
Posted: 12/15/2013 12:39:55 AM
That is being dishonest.
What if you meet him. Oh thats ok he says? No if his genuine his thinking would be if she lied about her age, what else is she lying about. Not a good start.
A lie is a lie

Never over his ex-wife
Posted: 12/14/2013 5:20:47 PM
I agree with Cowgirl.
Time to move on I think.Regarding the Ex wife, you aren't with him so it really isn't your business.
You cant fix or mold people. Its how he wants to live his life. Accept that this is how he is, for what ever reasons or if you cant accept it walk away completely.

Note; I have been a member here since 2005.
I was only here for events and the forums. POF isn't my life. At that time I wasn't looking. As I had a partner.
I came and went over the years. Just back after 3 years away. I just didn't close my account. Just thought I would give that little bit of info. :) Why? who knows I just prattle on at times lol, oh yea I still see some of the same people here. Maybe like me they come and go, or as Cowgirl said, this is their social life because they have no life. Cant get their butt off the computer chair. They have make believe romances.

Disappointed
Posted: 12/14/2013 4:50:06 PM
63 T always gives good advice so listen to his words.
Like Eric said. Sorry this happened to you. It could of happened two years down the track.
Anything that is rushed will fizzle out.
Alot of people for some reason ( past issues) need to feed their egos.
Dont give up there really are nice genuine people out there.
My belief is friendship first so that you have a foundation to build on.
Slow and steady wins the race.:)

Do you want to fall in love again ?
Posted: 12/13/2013 6:22:19 PM
I think its harder to get to the forums page than it used to be. It used to be on the home page when you signed in. I only came across it again when I searched forums. To answer your question. Yes it would be nice. I do live in the now, What ever is meant to be will be. Good to see you once again in forums Pookie :)

Posted: 12/13/2013 5:25:38 PM
It takes more than one meeting to see what a person is like.
We all put our best foot forward at the first meeting.
For me hygiene is important, grooming, manners, respect. also some of the above answers. Certain things you don't talk about at first meetings. Not that I know much about online dating. I gather its the same as the real world.????????

Jerry Springer Moment
Posted: 12/13/2013 5:02:35 PM
Players always get caught in the end.
What goes around comes around, ten fold.
I hope that the girl friend had the sense to walk away and get herself tested.
You were lucky. His not even worth your friendship.
I believe things happen for a reason.
The reason you were there was, so the g/f would catch him out, also for you to see he wasn't even worth friendship material.

girlfriend acts aloof for a week then asks for space... then texts me
Posted: 12/13/2013 4:39:46 PM
Time to move on.
Dont text her. phone her, dont ask her whats wrong. I think you got your answer early on in the piece, but you didnt read the signs.
Sorry, but shes just not into you. Sounds like she used you as her back up, She rather-ed some man at the bar. Best of luck you deserve a lady that IS INTO YOU.

what if a guy wants to move in right off the bat after meeting you
Posted: 12/13/2013 4:25:04 PM
Ran as fast as you can, not towards him but away from him.
NO NO NO
Doesn't he have somewhere to live? Guess you would have to support him to. Is he a local? sounds like a scammer to me.

Has Anyone Here Found Love on POF?
Posted: 12/13/2013 1:18:38 AM
I met my best friend and partner of 10 years on the internet ( not a dating site.) He passed away in 2010.
I have been on this site since about 2005? ( on and off) Not to hook up, My partner and I met alot of nice people on here, we used to go to events. The avent where we made awesome friends was the POF motorcycle little club that was formed locality. Alot of those people be came couples and some are still together today. Some didnt last but they were together for quite awhile. Im still friends with alot of those people today. You just have to listen to your gut feelings whos a nice person and who to say cya to.

The Final Curtain for Jacko!!!!!
Posted: 8/11/2009 9:15:39 PM
I saw MJ in Brisbane.
I can say it was the best concert Ive ever been to.
From what Ive read and seen on TV I think MJ was a very sad soul due to his father.
The TV was nonestop about his death and hardly a thing about a lovely actress who died a cruel death with cancer. I hope they both now rest in peace.

Expressions of Interest- Australia Day weekend PoF event
Posted: 12/28/2008 4:36:35 PM
Hi Baz
Reguarding the loo situation.
I have a portapottie that is used in caravans.
Maybe others have one as well.
Put tarps up around it.
If we had say half a dozen of these that should help.
Only thing with that idea though is, its not taken away and would have to be buried on site. Limited I know just an idea.

Ok motels that weekend double the price and N/A
So why dont we all put in for these loos? Dave lost his job to so I hear ya.
If we can pay for motels/hotels we can pay for loos
I guess find out how many are going, You might only need one loo
Just ideas
At this stage will be there work depending
