An addendum to Man, I must be doing something right....NOT!


I received this comment from MysteryKitty on my post when I was griping about my hotlist.

I viewed your profile and here is what I have to say if you choose to listen.... Your look, which is not ugly, does not appeal to everyone. If everyone liked the same thing, there would be a lot of lonely people. Perhaps you have high expectations. Are you only looking for the skinny 20 year old blondes? Also, you'll find you have a common problem that many of the other men on this site share with you, the majority of the people on this site are looking for women or couples. Are you contacting people who match your cupid settings? Well I hoped this helped, but don't let it get you down. I think a lot of people on here are all talk anyways.

I didn't reply at first because I was in a really bad mood and I didn't trust my answer not to come across as harsh. After a few days on vacation, I think I can answer that calmly.

Yes, I do contact people who match my cupid settings. No, I don't have high expectations, just wanted to say hello, that's all.

I remember back when the ladies would say "You're nice...but I want someone a little older." Twenty years later, it's "Sorry, but I want somebody younger." I never have cared for changing the rules in the middle of the game, but that's life...it's rough, so I'll wear a helmet.

I've always been the guy who would buy a drink for a lady in a bar just because I thought she was pretty and I wanted to say so, nothing more. I was never one for the heavy come on approach, maybe I was wrong. But at least I didn't feel like a lecherous bastard for my style.

I have many lady friends on this site...the majority of them are long distance. The ones that ran and hid are within a days drive from my location.

My theory is this....some people come on this site and it's all fun....as long as the distance is great. But when the distance is less than 100 miles, these posers start panicking. "OMG...there is actually somebody close by that might want to meet me! Run away! Run away!"

If one would read the very last line of my profile, I believe I state it very clearly: Don't go looking for a wolf if you're not serious, you will find a wolf with me. Meaning, please don't waste my time and I won't waste yours.

MysteryKitty...Thank you for the comment...it was appreciated and well received. I hope this additional explanation states my case a little better.

From somewhere in Marguiritaville....southeast of disorder...this is the guy of the night, signing off for now.
