Excuse me ladies, I have now been on this site for over a month and I have some questions as a male reading through female profiles that I am hoping you can help me answer:
* are there a lot of guys that list in their profiles that they are "dog haters"? I have found there are a disproportionately large number of females that make a point that respondents to their profiles must "love dogs", and I was wondering if that is a result of dudes stating they hate puppies in their profiles?
* are there THAT many men over a socially acceptable age that still live at home with their mothers? I have not noticed in my day-to-day life that there are that many grown (nay, overgrown) men still living at home. But again, it is explicitly mentioned in a larger proportion of profiles than I would have thought the "real-world" numbers warranted. Hypothesis: maybe these individuals are "hard-core" online daters. A group who dedicate all their productive time to tweaking their profiles and sending out messages to potential life partners. They put in so much time and effort, in their pursuit of "true love", they do not have time to find gainful employment and/or their own place. Though I can respect this type of tenacity in general, I will have to maintain my "amateur" online dating status in order to keep my day job, and a roof over my head. :(
* on average, how many pictures of male genitalia does a woman expect to receive in a week on this site? I never knew that unsolicited penis pix was at epidemic proportions in the world of online dating. It must be, solely based on the number of women asking that males refrain from the activity in their profiles.
* do women traditionally NOT want to be friends with who they share their lives with? A lot of women seem to feel obligated to mention they want to be friends with the person they are dating. I thought that was a given but maybe that is why I am single: I'm too friendly and women by default want to dislike their boyfriends (it would explain a lot of things :P ) Food for thought...
If you read this and can enlighten me on any/all of these questions, there would be all kinds of bonus points in it for you (these " bonus points" are non-transferable and have no cash value ).
Thanks for stopping in, have a great day.
If you have made it this far, I congratulate your tenacity and literacy (something that you should celebrate based on some profiles out here).
I hope it is apparent from the above that I am a big fan of sarcasm, and I endeavour to surround myself with intelligent and positive people.
I am both open and honest, so if there is something you want to know: ask away!
Good luck in your search. :)
