This is so bizarre. If a new person signed up to post this...they'd be crucified as entitled, selfish and plain *****y. But if they are in the Good Ol' Boys club, bad behavior is just simply encouraged. You guys are not doing "friends" any behavior by kissing their butts and telling them they are awesome. Quite frankly, you've been going running every night for a reason. And only the "weirdos" are contacting you...because that's all you attract.
JSizzle, I have known Tropical for quite a while on here and she is a pretty cool, down to earth person. We all have our flaws <raises hand> and the reason she runs is that she likes it and it's her exercise of choice.

In short, I have been here for two years or so and I think when you get to know Trop better you may find she's allright.

Frankly, she and I have exchanged advice on a number of topics and not always agreed....some of the BEST advice on here is people making you look at things from different angles. (Sierra is one of the best for this.)

In fact, I think your post is great. I might disagree with it knowing trop a bit better but I LIKE the fact that we can have some differing viewpoints that aren't intended to make our *friends* happy.

P.S. you are full of crap.

Just waded through the whole thread and it does sound as though this man is a little off kilter. I find it particularly disturbing that he's shown no interest in TT as far as her job or her travels are concerned. Communication is a two way street and his lack of interest strikes me as very self-centered. He sounds a little controlling and humorless and would probably be a very boring date! Good luck anyway!

Thanks MG.

I haven't written the guy back and don't plan to at this point. He hasn't expressed any real interest, and seems a bit too arrogant for my tastes. Confidence is great, but not when you go overboard with it.

I agree TT. His last emails are really off-putting. I'd fahgetabout him.
