False Advertising in Dating

Posted Monday, February 18, 2008 (104 days 22 hours ago.)

The last couple days, I've met 2 different women.  And both of them ended with the same results.  There was no chemistry.  The difficult part is trying to pretend to be friendly  afterwards.   I have no idea why it seems to be a common practice among women to take pictures from 3 feet about them or from angles to make themselves look 35lbs smaller than they are.  It is the new 'glamour shots' of the millenium.  

I realize that we are all looking for companionship, but part of the attraction is based on honesty.  Now I promote on my dating profiles that I'm not interested in any one is a plus size woman.  That's just my preference.  I don't expect to meet a model, but I do expect to meet a regular sized woman. But when you have on your profile that you are average body size, and you show up much larger that is very puzzling.  How stupid does she really think a man is? 

I can tell when a woman is 5'3, wearing  a size 16 and a contestant on the Biggest Loser.  I wouldn't consider that to be average at all.  Now if you look at the picture, you'd never guess she was as round as she was tall.  I would guess, she was a couple extra pounds over the average size woman.  Wow, was I wrong!  I guess my point is, if you're never going to meet someone it doesn't really matter.  But you can't photo-shop yourself in person.

The Lost Art Of Converation

It came to me last night during a conversation with SK31.  I realized why she's been so frustrated with me over the last couple months.  Sk31 has lost the art of conversation.  Dating is as much about physical attraction as it is to being mentally attractive.  The most common way we show physical attraction is with our appearance, smile, hair, and style of dress.  That's soooo easy for so many people.  We have plenty of tv shows about style, dress, and appearance.  But there are very few shows, if any, on conversation.  Any one can say a witty line to get the girl's attention or to get her cell number.  But the real reason dating is so difficult as we get older is because we no longer have conversations. Everyone some how feels as if they should have all the information right away, as if they could google all the information.  I've always been partial to woman who can sit down and talk to me.  If you can talk to me, you'll learn everything about me.  <img border="5" vspace="5" align="right" width="450" src="http://www.hollywoodjesus.com/movie/finding_forrester/10.jpg" hspace="5" height="300" />You'll learn my favorite foods, my hobbies, how important my children are, what type of wine I enjoy, and practically anything else.  Of course, you can't learn all of that in one conversation.  The fact is, Sk31 wanted to know everything about me.  The only way she knew how to do that was to ask me questions.  I call it, 20 questions.  Some where between #4 and #5, I got irritated and decided I wasn't going to answer any more questions.

 The real problem is, when you're  attracted to someone and you don't want to ruin it by talking to much.  In reality, conversation is the glue that holds relationships together.  Good conversations are a real sign of good relationships.
