You have been damaged by your experience and it is evident in your posts.

No slight intended but you are exhibiting the "once bitten twice shy" outlook.

Take it for what it's worth but this barbarian has never given two F's what anybody thinks when it comes to my sexual territory.

I REQUIRE passionate sex and I give as good or often better than I demand.

I've found there are no shortage of women willing to live up to my requirements and that includes the love of my life for over 31 years.

Work out what man you are and be that man with whatever requirements you will.

Don't overthink it. Be who you want to be.
You’ll have to take my word for it - but I’m exactly the man that I want to be. I am doing things my way and not allowing anyone to deter me.

Ladies, if men do not come around, show them your smile, show fewer maybes, and not always the door out.

When no dates meet your criteria, change yourself, or remain alone.
I say this, aimed at those who enjoy codependency.

For those who enjoy independence, you would be my project.
Not a pet project, a determined endeavor, forever in its duration.

When two wills meet, one must melt, that needed little.
Any sparks generated, shall be dominated by mine, the more positive.

A true rare event for me! I'm at work and this hunkalicious dude comes in. Hunks NEVER come into my work place! :love:

Tall, successful (I know what he does and why he was in the office), age appropriate, didn't see a ring on his finger, and yummy hot.

Alas, at work I wear no makeup, don't fix my hair, and wear frumpy no shape clothes, so I just kind of schlepped off out of sight after a minute or two. So it will never be.

Still, it was the most exciting thing to happen at work in weeks! :LOL:

Would you go for a work crush if you began working with him? I almost did, but decided against it.

It's nice to crush on someone though, I haven't met anyone that sparked me in that manner since, even during the whole dating spree after.

Sure! But this particular guy won't be back, the reason he came in was a one time deal. So there's about a zero percent chance of any work crush developing for me here. Stranger things have happened though.
😔

Admissions like that make me wonder if I should have just gone for my crush. Hell when you mentioned you excused yourself, reminds me when I showed up unexpectedly and she excused herself too then I accidentally found her in another room doing her makeup and fixing up her clothes was so obvious 🤦‍♂️

I pretended not to notice. If only she knew how crazy she made me.

It is true that the good ones are mostly taken.

Those that aren’t, will soon be.

The remaining must not be willing, or to be willingly, good.

Most of the less-good (to bad) are taken, also.

Desperation is not a flaw, it is reality at play.

One, still remains that lonely number.

One and a half, temporarily beats that solitude.

(At least for dating)

:LOL: Well look at it this way, we here on this thread who are single are proof that some of us "not taken" ones are actually good.

And who said anything about desperation? :unsure:

To me, people who simply must be in a relationship at all costs and fear being alone are the desperate ones. We're out here enjoying our lives, partnered up or not. (y)

You are the exception!

For now, until you are not!

The point of no return is not a landmark, it is a crater.

A crater you have placed between you and the rest of the best.

Desperation, comes in degrees.
From light gray, to inky dark blue.

The Sun goes down on all us.
Sometimes, unexpectedly.

Your favorable status quo is on borrowed time.
Aging leaves no one behind.

And, leaves no one's behind, youthful.

Beware, take note of that.

Why can’t the rotten ones be good? See my comments in that “change” thread. Most of the responses were “I’m not changing for anyone”. Disheartening to say the least. I see a lot of single people staying single in the future.

And when someone interesting comes along... I let slip through my fingers.

I'm still trying to figure out what's the lesson behind work crush.
My regret tells me not to let an opportunity like that slip again. Yet I know if the circumstances repeated itself I would have made the same decision. Work is work.

Heck I still remember when she sent me an SMS and then I took two weeks to reply and my reply was pretty much nicely "All the best, we have no real reason to contact each other anymore"

Not me 😅

Dude.....whaaaattt?? :LOL:

Do you actually read any of our posts when we respond to you?

Sir, it is ok to be alone. It is ok to be single. Even if it is for now AND for all the rest of the days I have. My life isn't about anyone else, it is about me. What exactly is it you think I need to beware and take note of? That I'll continue being as happy as I am now? Ohhhh noooooooooo! :giggle:

Your chain is so easy to pull!

You let it hang out, all shiny and smelling good!

Through your responses, I whisper loudly to others who are hiding in the shadows.

Yes, we each defend our backsides well.

Opinions are like belly buttons, we all have one.
I kept the above sentence clean!

Many are alone, because they choose to be alone.
Not alone, alone, but without a permanent, opposite sex (or, same sex) partner.

Too damn often, an unkind Fate imposes its own alone and cold choice on you.
This is my point.

A point to snipe at, to snip away.
