Why is this man from SFF reluctant to meet me?   26/10/2009

Hi, everyone,

This morning, I was having a chat with one of my matches from SFF. He seemed sincere and wanted to get to know more about me. We chatted on Yahoo IM for about an hour. We talked about what we were looking for in a partner, and we told each other why we were single at this point in time. I was very sweet to him, and he was likewise. I don't know if we have an intellectual ...

Changing times   29/12/2008

In my youth, after a date, you were lucky to get a chaste kiss, and most ladies did not have intercourse until they were married. Now people, especially the young hop into bed, sometimes after meeting for only a few hours. Recently, I went for a weekend with a football team, (male) most of them under 25. We stayed in a hotel in a small city.There were four other people of my age in the group. ...

Should we have first dates or should it be a meeting instead? <br> Perhaps a meeting to walk on the beach or share a coffee, a way to talk and see if we have any reason to see each other again. In the city it might be easier to find something low key enough to talk, but in a small town one is limited in activities.

Be honest.......afterall it will all surface soon   7/6/2004

I've only had one "blind date", we did exchange pictures. We did talk a LONG time before we met. So I get to the restaurant and I'm waiting....in walks this gentleman that is leaning heavily on a cane to be able to walk. I think geez kinda looks like him but he never mentioned he has a handicap. Now don't get me wrong. I have nothing against handicap people but I do live with two huge ...

One chance for a guy to make a good first impression.   6/6/2004

If we're on this "Senior" Friend Finder site, then most of us already know that men have two brains, right? That won't ever change. Some men learn to be diplomatic about it as they age, but some don't. <br> I'm here because I have accepted the fact that I indeed have two brains, and, I'm trying to use the bigger one before just reacting to the smaller one. I have a fairly ...

First date jumping in bed   29/5/2004

Why is it that when you meet for the first time the men always want to take you to bed right away, isn't it that you first build a friendship and trust before you take that next step, why can't men think with their hearts and mind instead of other things, to be intimate with someone that spark has to be there, we all have choices but the mens choice is always jumping into bed i know the men ...

RE: Respect - Men are visual !   24/5/2004

Regarding why men wish to view a picture of a woman before asking her out -it is because they are "visual" and want to see the person they wish to date. It is their nature and cannot be helped. Women on the other hand prefer to get to know a man before taking that first big step of dating. We are not concerned about looks as we are concerned about a relationship of love, faithfulness and a ...

cringe   11/4/2004

I had a first date with a fellow who took me to a restaurant where he ordered a Reuben sandwhich. It was full of pink, mayonaissy sauce. He picked up the sandwhich and the pink stuff ran through his fingers, dripped from his sandwhich. Some people at another table were observing him. He held out the sandwhich to them and said "Want some?" Do I need to say that I was mortified? ...

overcome   11/4/2004

I was hounded to attend a wedding reception with a fellow. He came in, listened to a few speeches and excused himself. He came back and listened to more and then people started kissing, can't recall why, he kissed me and left again. The meal started being served, he left again and came back wobbly and smelling booze. I ate and left. sobriquet

Be honest ,,,, Is it really a first date?   27/3/2004

When you meet for coffee to do " a looky lou" or a "drive by" or a peek at the guy or gal in person ... I believe this does not qualify as a "date". I prefer to term it as a "Meet and Greet" see what we both think! How can anyone be disappointed if you both go into it with no expectations other than meeting a new person that if you are not interested in dating could turn out to be a ...

Safety VS Connection   23/3/2004

These posts are interesting, especially the considerations for personal safety. It appears that women writing articles want a man to reveal enough personal information that she wants to meet him, but we as women shouldn’t for ‘personal’ safety. Let’s face it ‒ to meet someone even after a few emails (for men as well as women), is a little like trying to ...

Why do people assume more at first when it comes to the first date?   8/3/2004

I was talking with someone recently and seemed to hit off. Then I had suggested to meet to have a coffee together. We had both agreed with the first email that people should start off as friends. I thought meeting for a coffee is good way. But by the time he got to the 3 rd email he had blown this all out of porportion and was talking about a serious relationship before we even met. I would ...

Be honest and a gentleman!   20/2/2004

When meeting for a first date I hate when men try so hard to build themselves up only to find that all they told you (or most of it) is a lie. Maybe if you were just yourself then it would go better (the date). Men try so hard to impress, well to this woman, the truth impresses me more than anything else.

First date syndrome!   2/2/2004

Ahhhh, that first date syndrome. So many people on the personals find it to be a very scary thought and much like a blind date. I suppose that is what it is when you have never actually met in person yet. <br> I think you can get to know a person pretty well with emails and eventually phone calls. However, I like to look into their eyes and watch their body language while we ...

Crazy and hopeless   19/12/2003

I think it is crazy to make a fast move, to go live with someone far away. Risky. You put yourself under the total power of that person. How well can you get to know each other anyway? That is the crazy part. Here is the hopeless part: meeting anyone you have not already passed over where you are. Furthermore, phooey.Sobriquet

How To Gracefully Exit After First Five Minutes?   3/8/2003

Most of my first dates have been (by design) in very casual venues, like a coffee shop. Let me be honest. On most (but not all) my first dates I have pretty much decided yea or nay within the first five minutes. You may think me shallow; I prefer the term discerning. And in most cases I am inwardly saying 'no way' here. However, after having made that determination, I feel obligated to ...

how hard are they   8/6/2003

Or some men take you out and then figure hummmm i think i will ...

Safety is your #1 priority   11/4/2003

Here are a few good safety tips: <br> 1. If you decide to meet a person you have met at SeniorFriendFinder (or elsewhere online), always meet in a public place. Never meet in private for your first date and always let someone (a friend or family member) know where you are going to meet this person. <br> 2. Be honest about who you are and what you are seeking, however ...

Dating no-noes   15/2/2003

The other night I had a blind date. He was in such a hurry that he didn't want us to spend time corresponding but preferred to meet face to face. He said he'd spring for coffee, suggested we'd meet at 6 p.m (the dinner hour). I turned up after work, five minutes early. He looked at his watch and said he had been waiting more than half an hour. His next comment was, "if I had known how far ...

Deciding Whether You Want to Date This Person   9/1/2003

I agree with the other "First Dates" category message to a point. I too do not want to give my e-mail address, my phone number, or my actual address (he wanted to send me something) to any man I don't know, at least a little. I am surprised at the reaction to my reticense. One fellow scolded stating "This is no time for timidity." I explained that it was not timidity but security (mine) ...

advice on emails   31/7/2002

I can't say how many times I receive a message from a man who wants to chat, meet, move in with me and/or marry me without so much as having received an email back from me! One of my biggest turn-offs is when the messages I receive start out with "You are so pretty, beautiful, gorgeous etc..." Or they say "We have so much in common!" I'm hoping that a man would want to be judged on his ...
