what ever happened to getting to know someone? RANT

WTF ever happened to guys/girls just takin the time to get to know a guy/girl instead of just listing what they want in fantasyland? a guy that can spoil them? come on, most of us arent bill gates. good looking I understand, but hell its not gonna break the deal unless the person is a TOTAL circus freak.

theres nothing wrong with getting to know a person, its not going to kill them.
sorry, just had to rant about that a little. every time I look at craigslist, thats all I ever see, guys or girls lookin for something they fantasize about, but will probably never get because the bar is set WAY too high. lazy people piss me off. End rant.

life is but a way of killing time until you die. why care how you live, just have fun while you can.

Well, people have been told through advertising never to settle for less than perfect.

Perfect house
perfect car
perfect bike.

That's why bankruptcy rates and on the same curve as divorce rates. Nobody see's their parents making things work, everybody gives up and has an affair and gets a divorce.

So people look for exactly what they want. And then turn into alcoholics or Lifetime Television addicts because their life is sooooo miserable.

:shrug: <--- anybody found this smillie yet?

That's the problem these days (god I sound old) parents give everything to their kids (becuase I want them to have a better life than I did) and when they grow up, they still expect everything to be given to them. If it takes work they give up and walk away.

Recently stepping back into the dating seen. I have discovered that there are way to many Gold diggers out there.

I met a lady with a group of friends. There was an instant physical attraction form both of us. I discovered latter in the night that another friend had mentioned my income to her. It didn't take me long to realize we had absolutely nothing in common other than a few mutual friends. Soon discovered her true intentions were to find somebody to support her and her two kids.

I will be taking a very long time to get to know somebody before starting any kind of serious relationship. Gold diggers need not apply. All my money goes towards my business and my bikes.

My mother had a good deal for a number of years. She got a promtion and had to move abotu 2 hours away from her boyfriend (and the town I grew up in). He was a local police officer and had to stay in the area. Since they worked five days on 3 days off, he'd come down on his days off and see her. Cook dinner (she worked long hours) and do her laundry, then on the third day head home.

That would work for me. I have enough to entertain myself with the house and the bike (and the hockey), I'd like someone to talk to sometimes. But I don't need someone who "needs" and "loves" me to the point where they don't have their own life, and try and hijack mine. Pet peeve.

this is hilarious because im doing something similar now with a girl who wants perfection... living near atlanta doesnt make it any easier either with all the money mongers here lol. its just tough at 23 to justify what life plan i have that includes being rich and dedicated when all i can focus on is my next check from uncle sam. why can't we all just wear t-shirts that have our potential on them. that way women can invest time to see the benifit or bounce and not waste either one of our lives. lol

remember I was seeing a "gold digger" or little over a month ago...we had nothing in common....so she's gone....I spent way too much $ on her at the bars. Glad she's gone tho. I am very picky on dating anyway.

I've given up. TWF is my social life, and the bike is my recreation. I go kayaking with my mother, and out to dinner with friends when we ride. But I've given up on the dating thing.

I'm always looking...but it doesn't bother me right now...I like my $, toys, and freedom. If I stumble across the right one then great...I'll try it out...if not then it doesn't bother me right now.

That's exactly how I feel but I'm not giving up. Just not shopping.

I'm not saying that if I get asked out, I won't take the time to get to know somone, but like Jeeps says, I'm not shopping.

The last guy that was interested in me was married. Used the line "we're basically just cohabitating"... well then just get the damn divorce, I'm not up for that game anymore. If you disrespect her, you'll disrespect me.

I met M through a classified ad in a singles' magazine. You filled out a profile and their "computer" match you to someone...I think they matched zip codes...

Anyway...I let her know right up front who i was and how I live and she could decide if she wanted to be a part of it or not...that was 14 years ago...
