Obligation

I haven't much to say right now, but in an effort to stay current, I feel I should post something. For my fans, of course. I love you both.

I'm about to go to work, so even if I do find something to say soon, I'll have to be brief.

I'm dreading the upcoming holiday season. Reasons and details to follow in an entry where I have time.

I'm becoming discouraged as I show interest in some of the members here. I have emailed several people, and I haven't gotten a response from a single one. I'm fine if they're not interested, but I'd like the courtesy of a reply. Even one of the quick replies that says, "sorry bro, not interested" would be fine. I just get the feeling I'm wasting my time. If I were a woman with my qualities, I think I'd have better luck. They seem to be able to sit back and wait for someone suitable to contact them. The male to fmale ratio on this site is something huge, like 20 to 1, so I feel even more insignificant.

I update my profile and I post in this blog, all in an effort to show myself and get a nibble. I hate to sound whiny, but I don't have the time or personality to go out on the weekends and place myself in social situations to meet someone. My days off are during the week, plus I abhor bars. I'm left with this option. And I figured I'd be successful at least hooking up once in a while, but nobody shows independent interest in me based on my profile, and nobody returns my inquiries. Actually, I take that back. I did get emails from a gay man and a pre-op transsexual. I'm not sure why, but guys hit on me all the time. Doesn't do me any good, though.

So now what? Am I not aggressive enough? Am I not physically attractive enough (to women)? Or am I just the typical guy on this site who gets very little play because he is a guy, and guys don't get to choose?

(Ignore the male siluette, I'm female)

Agreed, nothing wrong with your appearance as far as I can tell, looks good...

Still checking out the site, I'm here for the blogs so far...re the people meeting people phenomena seems to be geographical area specific so far as I can tell, most people obviously aren't going to drive very far for a first date blind or otherwise...blogs seem to help link personalities together but location is still key...my guess is that you aren't close enough in geographical location for your emailed people who ARE looking to hook up...or maybe they are just blogging and AREN't looking to hook up...who the heck knows...

Haven't really checked out my local area other than to note that the profiles are generally guys looking to get laid but don't give me much info about themselves otherwise...getting laid for us girls isn't a problem so that's a secondary consideration in our searches...at least it is for mine... haven't found any interesting blogs or personalities in my area...

And of course until I post a picture I don't expect to here from any guys just looking to get laid...and that actually suits me just fine...

Actually, the only people I've contacted regarding a hook-up have been within 50 miles. All I'm asking for is a reply. I could be told to go *&$@ myself, and I'd at least know I was acknowledged.

But blogging is fun, and I'm getting the hang of it. Time to broaden my horizons and check out some new ones....
