Not always, many times we pay people for their vast wealth of knowledge and experience.

Hot, Experienced and Knowledgeable would probably settle for nothing but the very best.

The only thing I have to say, for me specifically, about this is this:

I think people should be with likes. And women should be themselves more and not try to please guys.

As far as likes:
I do not like anything rough, no porn, I don't think it's cute when girls kiss, i like cuddling, I'm not into casual sex....blah blah blah. I think I should be with somebody that feels the same thing. As far as sexual chemistry goes....there are other chemistries.

I think a lot of times girls get pressured into sleeping with guys. I think women should just wait until they're comfortable...whenever that happens to be.

As far as pasts, they do matter. I'm sorry.

I get the distinct impression that the men here who are spewing vitriol and calling women names are deliberately trying to insult, degrade, humiliate, and denigrate the women here who are living proof that such men are wrong in their assessments about men, women, and relationships.

I think it stems from jealousy, anger, and spite, because it certainly does seem that some of the women here, myself included, have gotten to have their cake and eat it, too. They had their wild days, their one-night stands, their flings and fun because they can and it's easy for a woman to get sex whenever she wants (you know, because men are easy). But look! They also have long-term relationships and marriages! With good, solid, stable, strong, healthy men who, OMG, LOVE them! They go on to have a happy family life, including raising children! That's not supposed to happen! Women who sleep with men on the first date are not worthy of love. They're not human. They don't deserve happy and fulfilling relationships. They don't deserve to have a family and children. How dare they! Well, that's just great. Now we can't categorize women based on numbers like we can athletes with RBIs and GAAs. We have to take each woman as an individual. Who has time for that? It's so much easier to say a woman is either a lady or a tramp, and base our categorization on a measurable statistic like how long it takes to get her in the sack.



Some of you men really need to come into the 21st century. You're archaic.

But by all means, spout your invective and your theories. Somehow, I don't think the world is going to stop progressing because you're sporting wood for Queen Victoria.

Thats the problem! I thought I had set the Hot tub controls for the 16th Century. No wonder I was confused. Thanks Avienne. Perhaps you might be my Grand Daughter 5 times removed (that is if I get the controls on this thing right on my next attempt)? I should have stuck with the Time cycle or the Call box but no... I had to try out the latest gadget.

I feel odd when I read the responses on CD to many threads. I am a 25 year old woman, who is not promiscuous, does not want to experiment with other women, and has only had one important relationship in my life. To most of you that makes me a prude or vanilla or stuck in the 1800's. To me it means I want love or having sex to mean something. I don't want to look back and regret things that I did in my past. I am also a healthy young woman with absolutely no hangups...so what does that make me? Where I live, I am not that uncommon, but on this forum I feel like some kind of oddity. In case you are wondering or making judgements I also get hit on all the time(I live on the beach and am always in a binkini). Hopefully, the next guy I have a relationship with will be the last. I think both men and women have sex too casually, but if it makes them happy, it is fine with me.

It makes you someone who knows what her comfort zone is. That's all.

Everyone is different--and that's okay.

I only partly agree.

10% get it on the first time they meet.

Another 5% on the second date.

Another 5% on the third date.

Another 5% sometiime in the first 3 months.

Another 5% before marriage.

70% never before marriage, seldom thereafter and almost never after 5 years of marriage.

Not easy but very consistent.
