MoronLessOff: cookiefleck: When I was single and used online dating sites, most of the guys off of those sites would suggest first dates solely around drinking.

I used to suggest mini-golf. It only worked once. Usually I was told it was kinda childish. IMHO, it's fun, cheap, doesn't have to be competitive, a comfortable public atmosphere, and leaves plenty of time for conversation.


I haven't dated since I quit drinking - coming off a long term relationship - but I'd find that fun. That, or maybe going to the beach, or a museum or art show. Someplace where you can talk at least.

And the funny thing about that is that they had no idea what to do on a fun date that didn't revolve around getting shiat hammered. They wouldn't want to meet at restaurants/ museums/ mini golf because that meant they had to commit at least an hour to you and that cramps their style but would be happy to spend an entire night getting f*cked up with a stranger

Sabyen91: Salt Lick Steady: Sabyen91: Nah, it is the nagging that leads to the "too much drinking" that is the real cause.

I've never understood the nagging thing. If I'm with a dude, it's because I accept he has certain tendencies, habits etc.

I went on a camping trip with the wife of a friend, and you could tell that he had done all of the work to get it ready, hauling in the food and the wood and sh*t. But almost everything he did, she had a complaint. "NO put it over there." "You didn't bring the other cooler?" "These hotdogs aren't all-beef!"

Made me uncomfortable as hell. At one point I wanted to say "Back off biatch," but that wouldv'e made it worse.

People settle because they just want to be in a relationship. They then try to "fix" the other person. Pretty unhealthy way to start a relationship. I think people are afraid of being alone.

/That person you are talking about is probably just a biatch and the guy she is with probably secretly loves it if he hasn't left her.


Some people are uncomfortable with or incapable of making even the simplest of decisions and need someone to tell them how to do everything. My brother in law for one. He cant go to the grocery store and fill up the car with gas without calling 10 times for advice.

Salt Lick Steady: kiwimoogle84: Oh dear lord! That's about the time you go find a restraining order. I've changed a number or two because of stalker exes. AND his family on one occasion. Nothing like a mother of an ex calling asking why you destroyed her precious snowflake's heart. I answered by asking if she knew about his cocaine problem.

/that he didn't have
//never heard from either again though

Nice thinking! But nah, restraining orders are really hard to get in Florida, and they don't have much of an effect until after something bad has happened.

When I left the state for NM, I thought I saw him (dude really did look like him) in my apartment complex, so I called the cops hyperventilating. They came, we figured out it wasn't him, and then they sat me down in my apartment and grilled me for a few minutes to see if I was crazy. Uncomfortable.


Oh perfect, Im moving to FL for work/school. I guess I shouldnt be surprised when my coworkers recommended I buy a large dog as soon as I move in.

Not even when it comes to dating. I had to basically rework my network of friends, because the only thing they did was go out to drink. And drunk talk is some of the most boring sh*t when you're sober.

This past weekend was awesome, going out to the Atlantic with a friend and her grandson. We got up early (we were tent camping) to take pictures of the sunrise and the dunes, then went boogie boarding, checked out the wildlife, picked up seashells.

Got ice cream.

Heh, they're not ALL crazy in Florida. Just mostly. I can give you some tips depending on where you are.

In the meanwhile, expect lots of pro-life billboards right next to the We Bare All billboards, pecans, citrus, bugs, and beautiful wildlife (esp. birds) right next to the wildlife that'll kill ya... again, depending on where you're going.

Nah, it would have made it a lot better.
I've never been in that situation, but I know a few who are and wonder why they stick around. It's like a woman insisting on staying with "that guy" because he's changed now. For sure, this time.
No, just, get out of there... life's too short.

Anyway, your story reminded me of this camping trip where Jim's gf was going on and on about how she would never swallow and they call her "ear-shot" because "that is NOT going in my mouth." We were with our gfs too and you could see the fear and wtf? spreading in the guys... we were all thinking it, of course, but only Mike's wife had the guts to say it. "Oh would you shut the fark up?!"

Spilled beers. laughter, "thank you!"

You need to start dating bodybuilders dear. We don't drink, smoke, eat garbage, or gamble or money away. Our minds thrive on self-discipline, and when we're not working, we like to have fun. Contrary to what little spaghetti-arm pencilnecks think, drinking and puking is neither fun, nor dignified. REAL fun usually entails being active - NOT sitting your ass drinking swill and smoking like you're on fire. Also, if there should be an emergency, do you honestly think those skinny twits with their pregnant bellies could take care of you?

Ah, ok, I guess you're right. kids make it a different scene.

Still, couldn't you just take a "hike" with her and shake her up a bit? Not that it's your responsibility that guy is stuck... but just for your own peace.
You wouldn't really have to drown her all the way

Good thing there are lots of women who appreciate shorter men, and lots of men like me who like women that maay be smaller up top.

/One thing I've come to realize since getting back into the game is that most women are way more interested in physical looks and style than they will let on.

Bodybuilders are the other extreme though. Until I learned how to balance the idea of being in shape and at the same time, have the ability to cut loose and not spend every waking moment doing things that will keep me "RIPPED". I know I sure as hell don't want to date a girl who spends 2+ hours at the gym every day and has worked off her womanly curves, or worse, is a COMPETITIVE bodybuilder. shiat is so gross.

If you can't work out four or five times a week and watch what you eat, and still be able to eat something that isn't centered around a damn diet and have a couple drinks and laughs on a weekend night, you're as bad as the other extreme.
 
2012-06-03 06:42:36 PM  
I'm pretty easygoing when it comes to drinking. It's fun in the right context with someone who knows how to pace themselves. On the other hand, getting totally sloshed on the first (second, third) date is at the very least counterproductive. For me, it'd be a red flag of someone with poor impulse control.

Have I had relationships end because of it? No. I've had them end mainly because I felt like my boundaries weren't being respected or I was being asked to act in a way inconsistent with my own values (for example, to be a dick when I wanted to be kind instead.) Or, because of that other thing I won't go into here...

Uh, no. You're shallow- just like I'd be if I had been telling the truth. You might as well say you need a guy with a 10 inch cock or a American Express Centurion to feel feminine. Excluding someone based on a bullshiat standard like that is just not okay, and it bothers my 5'8'' ass that for some reason women seem to think it is.

Also, if there should be an emergency, do you honestly think those skinny twits with their pregnant bellies could take care of you?

Don't you have somewhere to be in 26 minutes?


He's too busy looking at himself in the mirror.

calm like a bomb: kiwimoogle84: I know my own insecurities. That's not exactly fair. It sucks being my size and female because mentally I'm a sub-for all intents and purposes. I like feeling feminine. A guy who is 5'9 and 150 won't be able to pick me up and it messes with my mind. I'm not fat by any means but you get the idea. With height comes strength and weight and such. You understand.

Uh, no. You're shallow- just like I'd be if I had been telling the truth. You might as well say you need a guy with a 10 inch cock or a American Express Centurion to feel feminine. Excluding someone based on a bullshiat standard like that is just not okay, and it bothers my 5'8'' ass that for some reason women seem to think it is.


Tell you what- if I outweigh you at 5'10.5 and 165 I feel uncomfortable and fat because men like you you have made me feel so. Not my fault I feel more proportionate in the arms of a slightly taller man.

Is it shallow to have a type? We're talking relationships here, not job interviews, some level of physical attraction is key to the whole thing.

Mister Peejay: MrHappyRotter: Without fail, every single relationship I've ever been in has ended for the same reason. You'd think there was a law against peeing in the kitchen sink.

See, I knew about the kitchen sink thing, which is why I'd save it in orange juice bottles in the freezer.


You are both my new heroes.

cookiefleck: When I was single and used online dating sites, most of the guys off of those sites would suggest first dates solely around drinking. It got so bad that I started including on my profile that I will not meet anyone on a first date at a place where the only thing to do was to drink, for my safety and because I don't want to be your designated driver while we're supposed to be getting to know each other. I'm convinced that 85% of men that use OK Cupid are alcoholics.


It's much more innocent than that. Having a drink together is a date that is:

1. Safe: Bars are public; there are always other people around.

2. Focused on interaction: You'll go home knowing a lot more about your date than if you went to see a band together.

3. Easily cut short: You're having "a drink" together, so at any time you can finish your drink and say, "Nice meeting you! I have to go meet my friends now!" Or you can order a second drink and nurse it if things are going well.

4. Less stressful for people who are nervous meeting new people, which is most people, especially people dating online.

My initial plan was to always suggest having a drink as a first date. I altered that to suggesting "coffee or a drink" and seeing which one she runs with, but only because I got some advice from a female friend. Don't assume the worst about someone who suggests a drink. If you don't want to drink, counter with a different idea (like coffee) and see what he says.

I had an ex-gf of exactly those dimensions. My skinny-ass 5'8 self could pick her up - she liked that, though she liked more fancying herself as my Amazon protectress ;-)

mephisto6: Still, couldn't you just take a "hike" with her and shake her up a bit? Not that it's your responsibility that guy is stuck... but just for your own peace.
You wouldn't really have to drown her all the way


Heh. biatch is strong, that'd be one hell of a cat fight.

Volley ball, intramural champs 2 years I played. 157 lbs now, few more muscles back then, now not so active. Still six foot tall! : ) Cheers!

Look as a 5' 8" guy that wants a volleyball player for a girlfriend, I can say the height thing inversely affects me. I don't care about her height, but I am forever paranoid that all girls are of mine. . .it doesn't help that I am shy to start with. . .

/even the libero is usually taller than me

strapp3r: Notabunny: List fails without 'Penis too large'

ha! old friend from high school was hung like a weasel...i mean like the actual weasel!
LOTS of girls/women wanted to give it a whirl - not much in the way of repeat business

/this irishman is ok with his irishness


Yeah. I had to dump somebody for penis too big. It was too bad. I really liked him. But I'm an itty bitty tiny woman, and as stretchy as a va-g is, that was never gonna be fun instead of painful.

CSS:

The funny part was when I was on a panel with him some years later and the other people on the panel were older women. He was the only guy on the panel. And they made some kind of teasing, disparaging crack about size of the kind guys usually have to grin and tolerate.

Well his and my eyes met, and we both just completely lost it laughing our asses off. The old ladies thought we were laughing at their wit. I guess the audience just thought we were easily amused.

Had to be a helluva moment for him. :-)

/end CSS

True. Still shallow though.

MoronLessOff: Buffet: cookiefleck: MoronLessOff: cookiefleck: When I was single and used online dating sites, most of the guys off of those sites would suggest first dates solely around drinking.

I used to suggest mini-golf. It only worked once. Usually I was told it was kinda childish. IMHO, it's fun, cheap, doesn't have to be competitive, a comfortable public atmosphere, and leaves plenty of time for conversation.

And the funny thing about that is that they had no idea what to do on a fun date that didn't revolve around getting shiat hammered. They wouldn't want to meet at restaurants/ museums/ mini golf because that meant they had to commit at least an hour to you and that cramps their style but would be happy to spend an entire night getting f*cked up with a stranger

You need to start dating bodybuilders dear. We don't drink, smoke, eat garbage, or gamble or money away. Our minds thrive on self-discipline, and when we're not working, we like to have fun. Contrary to what little spaghetti-arm pencilnecks think, drinking and puking is neither fun, nor dignified. REAL fun usually entails being active - NOT sitting your ass drinking swill and smoking like you're on fire. Also, if there should be an emergency, do you honestly think those skinny twits with their pregnant bellies could take care of you?

(piggybacking)

Also, unfortunately, blasting out a workout and puking is also neither fun, nor dignified. Religious zealots--or fanatics of any stripe--can be a bit much to live with. Nice active guys who like to get out and do stuff on the other hand, and have a sense of proportion, those are the fun ones.

And I find guys who want to rescue me a tad off-putting. Wouldn't mind a hand while I'm rescuing myself. Could use a buddy. And sometime I might need rescuing. But if your first thought about me is rescuing...that's a bit much.

When I show up as a damsel in dis dress, I'm choosy about who gets to carry me off. [grin]

Shocktopus: Loren: ZAZ: I want to see the male/female split on the sex questions, especially "your sex drive is too low."

this.

This x infinity. Especially since my 10-year relationship just ended over that issue. "Just" as in, today the truck was here.

It is not normal for someone's sex drive to just vanish. And no, I didn't get fat.


That sucks. Sorry you're going through that.
