    Say No To Internet Dating

    After being in a loveless, sexless marriage for many years I was eager to get out there and start dating.  I was very cautious.  I listened to the advice of trusted friends.  I had been legally separated for a year and planning for divorce.  I looked good and felt pretty good...

     I am so sick of dating!!! You meet; there is an initial spark. He's attentive, charming, sweet, and you think, phew! I've finally found a good one. Then three months down the road he suddenly stops calling you and drops off the face of the earth. No warning, no lets be...

    But Still Trying?

    Men are weird people. They love you and then they cheat on you. You can never understand men. They are the weirdest thing in this world. I really give up you know. At some point I’m still trying but other times I have given up. I really want to just be away from it all. I...

    Always The Matchmaker Never The Match.

    Ever since I was in middle school, I have noticed a pattern. Ever since 8th grade (I am going to be a senior in high school this coming August) every guy I have ever liked has liked my pretty best friend.  I will always be the guys best friend and he will tell me how he...

    I Want To Give Up On Love

    I want to give up on love and relationships, but I don't know how; my heart is too stubborn, and won't allow me to stop longing for someone to love me. But my brain has correctly deduced that I'm just never going to that. How do I convince my heart?For everyone saying," Oh just...

    Taking Ownership: I Picked The Wrong Men

    I pick the wrong men. I associated arrogance with confidence and certainty with truth. I liked that they always seemed to speak with conviction or seemed so loyal. Some of the men I wanted to have them open up to me, to draw themout of their shell. Yet they latched onto me and...

    Most Men Are Emotionally Retarded. (Period)

    I had two relationships ( each over a year long ) with men that I met on plentyof fish. Both educated, seemed honest, and both were in love with me. Well, low and behold, they were also still on plenty of fish. Even though they had both said they deleted their profiles, somehow...

    I Give Up On Men......sometimes :)

    Some days, yes I give up on men. Other days, no I don't. If I gave up on men then that would only leave women, and eventhough that would make a lot of men and some women happy, it's not for me...lol. Anyway, I have made some very good male friends over the years and have learned...

    I Don't Hate Men

    I hate the choices i make bout them. I pick badly, chase the worst ones and run if a decent one gets past my decent guy repellent tactics. They (men) split my focus, monopolize my time & devour my energy. I have a really tough time ahead, i don't know if i can turn it around. As...

    I haven't given up completely. But I do wonder late at night-- "Is it possible to find a man that does not view me as a sex object?" and "Are there feminist men out there? I would like to meet one, just for a few minutes." It seems that men care so little for things that don't...

    There Is A Perfect Man Out There.... Somewhere?

    I've been holding on to this idea, but as of late, I just don't have the energy anymore. I feel like I have so much to offer. I am easy going, i love to give love, I'm loyal, I'm fairly attractive. I joke, I laugh, I smile! I'm loveable... I think... But these men! They all want...

    Is It Actually Wonder Woman?

    Where do I begin? I was in an abusive relationship for a very long time, and was single afterward for a while. I was in the belief that all men were cruel bastards. Now, I am dating a guy that is absolutely awesome. He compliments me, takes me out to nice places, makes me feel...
