    Tired, But Not Giving Up...

    Ah, where to begin? Well, I just recently went out on a date with a guy who asked me what was wrong with me that I was still single. He is abrupt bordering on rude. His conversation feels like an interview. For example, he will say, ". Why did your ex brreak up with you? Why...

    I have a question, what is a "great guy"?

    And are you trying to meet him, or waiting for him to meet you? These are honest questions

    Honestly

    It is very hard to meet guys.... period. I just don't know why. I haven't been on a date since 1994... that was with my ex-husband. The thought of meeting a guy back then didn't even come to mind. It just happened even though they may not have been the greatest guy. I watch my...

    This Is How You Find And Keep The Great Guy And Girl

    You don't need to read a book, you don't need to attend a cheesy reality show and you certainly don't need Internet to find the one who is just right for you. THIS is what you need. 1. Know who you are (mostly find out your "flaws" and ways to better yourself) you will harvest...

    My Idea Of A Romantic Date

    Sometimes, I think I should have been born decades before I actually was.  This becomes evident when one learns of a dream I have held for many years. I really want to go on an old-fashioned romantic date with a man who will treat me completely like a woman.  This has nothing...

    I've had my share of bad experiences with men.

    Whether simply dating, or serious relationship. But what I've learned is that sometimes you have to go through, or deal with certain circumstances. All men are not bad. All men are not womanizers, liars, cheaters, abusive, etc. Life is all about "timing". Sometimes, you lose...

    Kinda sounds sad right?

    I mean it's funny like sometimes I'll meet like a really cool guy and I think there so nice but once I get to know them. They turn out to be very mean and disrespectful to me in the end. It really sucks.

    Whilst I know that some of us just get all the

    Why is it so hard to meet any great guys or girls? Even if you're just looking for a friend, things can seem so complicated and difficult. I've met some very special people in my life and found my way around to see the great people around me. Here's what I see as the biggest...

    "True Love Is Not That Hard To Find"

    Before you conclude that what I am saying is crazy, please consider this: "What is love?" Love is not some mysterious force from the "ether of the universe". Love instead, is an art, and a skill which needs to be learned just like any other skill in life. Before you can really...

    Never mind of it being hard to find a great guy,

    but it's difficult to find any good person nowadays. Male or female it's super challenging to find a decent and honestly kind person.

    He even said he loved me. Then he turned it around and said that he wanted to be friends with benefits and that even though he loved me he couldn't date me because he didn't want to hurt me. I'm sorry, but if you want to do ANYTHING with me/ to me, you're putting a ring on it...

    Why?!

    Guys trick u into thinking their one and then when you give them your heart, they crush it, rip it, and tear it just like the a-holes they are. I now see why females are switching teams to be with other females (I'm not that angry tho lol).
