When someone views your profile.   11/18/2008

When someone views my profile, I am contacted by this site. They say that someone is interested in me. I think that they are NOT interested unless they leave a message, send a wave, wink, etc., or put you on their hotlist.

What do you think?

The hardest thing to say   9/5/2007

It is difficult to say to a person that contacts you that you are not interested. You know that they had some hopes and aspirations.

Most folks here are looking for longtime relationships and some like me are not. I consider marriage a "Catch and Re;ease" Program.

But I state qite clearly that an LTYR is not what I am all about.

Thanks, but not thanks   11/21/2006

No Thanks is a 1935 collection of poetry by E. E. cummings. He self-published the collection with the help of his mother and dedicated it to the fourteen publishing houses who turned the collection down. The book is unconventionally bound not on the left but rather the top, like a stenographer's pad.
No Thanks is a term used to politely refuse something.

No and Thanks are two opposite words.   2/8/2006

Always do have some motives in his/her dealings, as 'no' must have been something infuriorating, while 'thanks' you had achieved something and grateful, bringing the two together amounts to pretence, deciet and hypocricy.

...Time to bid him Farewell!   2/8/2005

When you're threatened desertion by an angry lover, nicely say "No thanks, and goodby!" Never is it acceptable to resort to name calling and/or profanities. When it goes there, it's undoubtedly time to bid him farewell! It's been my experience, that when you truely love someone...somehow profanity escapes the mind...especially when angry!

If the person insists and sends another one or several further messages and it keeps annoying you, you can briefly answer back and be as honest as possible.

I wanted to get to know someone in a far away place so that I might have the excuse to travel in the future so I chose men from the United Kingdom a place I had always wanted to visit. I thought that at least I might find a great pen pal who could tell me things about his country as well as getting to know him. The first week of my membership I met a man in the age group that I was interested in and I will call him Bob. Now Bob and I hit it off right from the start and soon our letters were on a very personel level ,writting many times a day. Soon we were chatting on Yahoo Messenger just like two teenagers falling in love for the first time. Then the cyber sex began to creep in. I said no and like a fox he made his move in another direction and before I would know it there would be something sexual going on. Now if that is what both parties are interested in then go for it but in my case it only served to frustrate me more with him getting just what he was after. This went on for sometime and because I thought I really liked him I relented and engaged in what I thought would make him happy. But we were never talking about the things that had drawed me to him in the first place, the relationship had become CYBERED and I tried a couple of times to guide it back into the right direction. Like I said if it is what you both are looking for then that is fine but if you don't feel right about it just say no! Why go to bed confused and frustrated while he is on his end sleeping like a baby with a smile on his face.

She sent the strongest signals. She wanted me. She would be saying who she likes and she would go like this "Jeff, Chad , and somebody". This was as clear as a bell that she liked me (besides my ...

Saying no isn't as hard as it may seem   1/26/1999

Saying no isn't as hard as you may think. It all depends on how hard you make it for yourself. For instance, if someone asks you out and you say, "I'll think about it" when you really want to say no then all it does is make it harder. You end up thinking about ways to tell them you don't want to go out with them and stalling. Eventually you end up with a really lame excuse why you can't go out ...

The hardest thing for a guy to do is to not have sex. His "willy" is wild and crazy and when there is an opening for him to see himself in, he usually takes it. Usually is the key word though.
