I agree with the advice you referenced because they basically told him to go out with the girl. I just think you have wierd views on dating I don't see where a dinner and movie date is goofy . Very odd I must say. What is this scene you speak of?? You must be one of those women that likes go to tea parties and put your pinky in the air. Women around me like to go Penguin games.

I agree the things I listed are pretty basic...but even so, not guaranteed as indicated by the number of men that cheat. I have a long list of qualities that the ice queens don't take the time to see I'll have to work on selling myself in a half hour period better lol. Even you admit you and your husband essentially bonded over time...that's all I'm asking for. So in way you met your husband in the same way I want to meet my future wife - yet you make it sound like I'm being reasonable!!


Now this is good advice...it's just hard when you're on a streak of meeting ice queens.
ok, in Russia it is a very good game in first date - something like a flirt: check on the scale of interest of man to woman - whether he is interested in it 2 time.
Dinner we can pay for themselves)) and we do not ask a man about the material well-being here in Russia, it is not brought up for people here.
I read forum and see that you have some features..

He told him to go out with her and see how it goes. If he likes the way the date goes, great. If he doesn't, move on. How can you agree with it when you have taken issue with women not giving Altguy or other guys second dates? It's only ok when a man decides after one date, but it's not ok for women? I'm not sure how you reconcile that in your head.

I do think it's goofy. To each their own. And tea parties? Well, maybe mushroom tea parties back in my dead head days. You have an uncanny inability to read people. Dh and I were into the same music, went to the same events and parties, etc. It's interesting that you don't know what a scene is. Don't you have favorite local bands, or DJs, or whatever that you go see on a regular basis? Where you typically make friends who are into the same things, and you go out together, wash/repeat.

What's a penguin game?

You'll never meet a woman the way I met my husband online. It's simply not a possibility. Meeting people online means you are not off line living. When I met my husband there were no expectations. There was none of this god awful neediness. There was shared enjoyment over music, lots of dancing, spinning, and hoopla. We'd catch a drink here and there and babble for a few hours. It was easy. He was easy. OTOH, many of you guys are not easy.

A pretty good story...

http://www.match.com/magazine/articl...rticleid=12866

"When it comes to dating, we all have our romantic checklists.

For the most part, I think men and women agree on the key attributes we consider important in our romantic partners. Don’t we all want someone who’s decent, attractive, confident, loyal, has a great sense of humor, shares our values, operates with integrity, is a good communicator and emotionally healthy? Oh yes, and it doesn’t hurt if Mr. or Ms. Maybe is independently wealthy and has rock-star charisma, too.

But what if you just had to pick one attribute as the most critical for your mate to have? That’s where the sexes part company and prioritize some traits over others — or, in some cases, define those traits differently. For example, men and women might have separate definitions for an adjective like “passionate.” Everyone wants a passionate partner, but if you believe some stereotypes and outdated research, men more often associate that word with pure physical, sexual voracity, while women think of a deeply felt, lusty emotion that’s directed only at them.

Recently, I spoke with a variety of women to get them to tell me the one thing they absolutely, positively had to have in a guy they were seriously dating. With a little thought — and some prodding — most of the women I spoke with were clear about their top demands. Which one tops your list?"

Compatibility tops the charts with sense of humor running a close second. I have to be physically attracted but that is further down the line.
