Bajan,
You can't play both sides of the fence on this single women:single men debate. I am just waiting for my homies Gilgamesh and Meatkins to show up.

LOL!!! This is a prime example of the problem indeed. I've seen so often and I have been a victim of it myself, this woman prejudged this dude. I think that guy was actually interested in her, but I think the moment she invited her friends over, it was clear that she wasn't feeling him. Any woman that is turned off by a guy not traveling out of the country is just being shallow. Really? Not traveling being a turn off? Some people need to grow up. I thought he had a legit reason why he didn't travel. If she keeps this up, she'll be back on DateLab at 39 years old too.

And to add to it, if you look at what she said she was interested in he was most of those things:
Christian-yes and a serious one (lost friends over his beliefs!!!!)
smart-dude was a contract specialist, you have to have some intelligence
kind - volunteered with young kids, and she said he is a nice person
talkative-she said they had a good conversation
good listener - ditto to the above
giving - gave his time to kids and less fortunate
understanding - he didn't kirk off on you after you brought your sorry friends over, how rude!!!

So WHAT'S THE PROBLEM????????????????????????

LOL!! This article was great. The woman's expectations and standards were laughable. So what if he hasn't traveled past Canada? I could see if he was completely against it, but he's not. He just hasn't had anyone to travel with (even though I think theres nothing wrong traveling by yourself) and he said he's open to it. Maybe you could help him expand his horizons and travel with him in the near future? Everyone has a right to have their preferences, but honestly just from her face shot alone I don't know how she can demand NBA physique

And dude came on a little too strong for a first date IMO. Talking about religion and being exclusive and her thoughts on a serious relationship is a little heavy for a first date. I think first dates should be fun
