...why.

Why are you messing with her if you don't know what she is saying?

I don't know. The whole site is confusing. All the people have pictures on their profiles of themselves in various states of undress. Some are even nude! Suffice to say I have reported the nude photos to the administration, but since I obviously haven't gone back to those profiles I don't know if anything has been done about it. It's a very frustrating site.

Question #4: I finally got a response from this online dating service I found, fetfriends.com, but I'm a bit confused and want your advice. This woman asked me a bunch of questions, and I don't know how to respond. First she asked me what my hard limits are. I haven't really messed with computers for years, what software/application do you think she is asking about? Second she asked me if I had ever been collared, which is really strange! I mean, I went to a party dressed as a dog one halloween, but how did she know that? Third she asked if I liked water sports, which I do, but since neither of us are near the ocean, or even a large lake, I don't get why she would ask that. And finally she said she was a switch. I think it was a typo and she meant witch. I don't really want to date a witch though. What do I do?

1 - Hard[ware...must have been a typo] limits are pretty much looking for the speed of your computer.  For example, my computer has an i5 processor (tri-core), 6mb of DDR3 RAM, etc.

2 - She is trying to make sure you are not a member of the clergy.  (Many Catholic priests wear those bizarre white things around their neck.  Some Protestants do as well.)  She seems like a very decent and upstanding person and wouldn't want to get involved with someone who is already married or is celibate.

3 - Hello?  You need to get out more.  All you need for water polo is a pool, some horses, and a ball.

4 - She probably means she's a "stitch" meaning she has a good sense of humour and will have you rofl'ing with laughter.

In the future, you should be careful to make sure that the women you are looking for are not witches.  Dating a witch will only get you burned...


I will get to Question #3 eventually.  But I am still trying to find someone who took the effort to get a degree in sex and also has real-world experience with someone other than themselves.  If I was the sort for shameless self-promotion I would direct you towards my book Don't Do It Like They Do On The Discovery Channel - Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Not Date A Woman Who Thinks She's A Preying Mantis, and Other Helpful Tips, by Dr. Vamrat.  Published by Paladin Press.

Question #3: There is an adult book store in my town, and I've been thinking about stopping in. I thought that perhaps if I bought some books there I could learn how to class things up a bit and treat a woman better. I would prefer more academic books, not those self-help kind, but I'm not sure where to start. Can you suggest some authors--preferrably people with college education in the field, but who also have real life experience--that I will probably find in my local store? Thanks!

Can't think of one with college education. OTH, those with a college education and usually found at your local Barnes & Noble, are really not that good anyway. Just watch 2.5 Men and do the opposite of Charlie outside the bedroom and the same as Charlie inside. Or, you can listen to the Charlie Rich's Behind Close Doors, or to any of the hits of Conway Twitty--Slow Hands, may be?

There's horses in Water Polo?  Wouldn't that be suicidal?

1) She's probably talking about your hard disk drive. You should be able to get more info in My Computer (if you are a Windows user).
2) She's talking about coats with high collar
3) She's inviting you to go to the seaside with her
4) She probably meant she has a hair switch

These answers have been most helpful! I am still interested in what the zen master orthonormo has to say though.  police

I also have an actual question (ie. my second legitimate question on the thread)...

Question #5: When a woman winks at you, does it always mean she's interested in a relationship?

I realise that I'm hardly movie star material in the looks department, but in the last year I've had some strange winks, one from a therapist, and one from a woman who appeared to be 12-15 years older than me.  Definitely "lol wut?" moments for me.

Can't speak for orthonorm, but I would say that this firmly plants you in the MILF's target demographic.

They are sassy, usually wise, and know how to bake delicious baked goods.

My answer comes from experience from having older women constantly hit on my husband. I never have to bake anything!

Why is it that women don't seem to mind it when an older woman hits on their significant other, but God forbid if some young lass flirts with the same.

That's actually a good question that I can't answer. Husband has actually dated older women, so you think I would be threatened. Some of them have been ridiculously brazen too, asking him out constantly when we were engaged.

But then again, he is more bothered when younger men hit on me, versus older men. And I have always preferred older men, so would that go for the men, too?

I guess they see them as less of a threat because of their age? Which isn't entirely fair.

It's very amusing for me when you consider that my wife is incredibly threatened by my one ex, who is six years younger than me, but is quite okay with me still having a friendly relationship with another ex, who is exactly one year older than I.  I think my wife actually wants to meet her. 

I share far more things in common with the latter than with the former and I'm convinced it's the age thing.

Orthonorm is following the fast.  We will switch places on Monday, but for now you are just going to have to deal with the half-wit substitute!

Sometimes a wink is just a wink.  Sometimes it is an eye irritation.  Sometimes they are propositioning you to act as though you were consummating a marriage.  Assuming that it is one of the first two will have no ill side effects.  Assuming it is the third can lead to a court order.

Hit on the therapist if you must.  She probably has lots of g-money.  Remember what Cicero said.  The sinews of war a successful relationship are infinite money.

I am overly generalizing here, but I feel threatened (not gonna lie) by the ones even younger than me. Young girls look and dress so maturely nowadays that my guy friends stare at a girl for a long time before finding out that she's 16. How do I, with my senior year post-thesis weight gain, health problems, undereye circles from work, even venture to compete against that?

Like I said though, it's unfair to just be jealous of the younger women, because older women are typically very, very direct and men like that, too.

I think my wife would be more worried the other way.  She knows that I like older women.  The younger they are, the less interested that I am.  However, to address your question with pseudo-science, the younger lass is looking for a sugar daddy.  The older one is just looking for a good time, and may even let your wife join the fun.  But then again, I could be wrong.  Vamrat should probably answer this.

Sometimes a wink is just a wink.  Sometimes it is an eye irritation.  Sometimes they are propositioning you to act as though you were consummating a marriage.  Assuming that it is one of the first two will have no ill side effects.  Assuming it is the third can lead to a court order.
It's usually number 2. I'm just saying.

Actually to be serious, I never wink intentionally. If I do, I'm like "Shoot, when did I start liking this guy?"

Not to say that it's a ravage green light  Tongue, but I don't give out my winks too easily. Other women should chime in; I'm sure that I am not a good representative sample.

And see, I never wink in a sexual way.  It's more to show I am teasing.  When I am in a naughty mood you can tell because I am breathing and have a pulse.  All other times than those, I am probably stiff.  (Edit - I am referring to rigor mortis, BTW)

a wee bit of caution

(the following post contains part of the BDSM culture, which some may find squeamish. that is why im attempting to hide it in spoiler tags, if possible)

[spoiler]The idea of being collared is the public act of submission in a master(mistress)/slave relationship. BDSM consists of the idea of a Dominant(Dom) and a Submissive(Sub). the M/S relationship takes this to the extreme, with the sub literally and willingly entering a slave relationship, in order to serve their master/mistress and please them, which in turn pleases and sastifies the sub. the collaring ceromony is the public sign of this

By her asking if you are collared, it is practically asking if you are a submissive in a relationship, and or during sex

wiki link on this, the picture that is on here shows a collar attached to a neck, and there are no inapproaite pictures on this page, though i will not vouch for the sublinks

Oh my little baby is all grown-up, actually it ain't.

While this thread has gotten longer in my absence, I return calloused from hundreds of prostrations an hour to our Holy Lady with even greater insight into the topic at hand than when I left you all wandering in the dark, the state of manhood in this forum hasn't altered an iota.

Many thanks to vamrat for his advice while I was away, if not for its utility then for its wit.

And looking over the thread, many here have obvious anger toward women.

At first, I will be ministering to those poor anemic men who lack the courage and confidence to have more than a passing friendship with a woman.

But I'll get to you bitter types as well, for you both are two sides of the same coin.

God willing, I will start where I left off sometime this weekend.

And yes, lest this fall into the realm of mere navel gazing, I will be drawing upon examples from my own life and of those of all the lesser men I have known.

Till then.

Listen ladies, men only have two emotions: horny and hungry. So if we don't have an erection, go and make us a sandwich.

Question #6: Ok, so I met this girl in my sociology class. When the teacher asked us to partner up for a project this girl came over to me and asked if I had a partner yet, and since I didn't she sat down and joined me. She seems so nice and sweet, like she smiles a lot and looks at me all the time. And not just regular eye contact, but she seems really interested in everything I have to say. She laughs at all my jokes as well, it's great. It does get a little awkward though because she touches me all the time when she laughs, like she'll touch my arm or something. Anyway, so she gave me her number in case I wanted to study together. I really like her! But how do I know if she's interested, and whether to ask her out or not? I think maybe I shouldn't, because she'd be flirting with me if she was interested, right?

Question #7: Ok, so I decided to call that girl I mentioned in my last post, because there is a test coming up and I really need to study some more. Here is how the conversation went:

[I call her and the phone is ringing, then she picks up]
Sarah: Hello?
Justin: Oh, uh, hi!
Sarah: Barry?
Justin: Um, no, it's Justin. From sociology class.
Sarah: Oh, right! What's up?
Justin: Well, you said maybe to call you if I wanted to study together, so I thought maybe we could set something up.
Sarah: Sure hun, how about tomorrow night?
Justin: Ok, do you want to meet at the school?
Sarah: Not really.
Justin: We could always go to the public library?
Sarah: Huh? No...
Justin: Well... er...
Sarah: How about your place?
Justin: Oh, my place? Yeah, I guess we could do that, if you want to...
Sarah: Definitely. Can't wait.
Justin: Right, I guess it's better, cause it'll be quieter and we can focus more on school work.
Sarah: Oh... yeah, school work...
Justin: So I'll see you tomorrow at my place? What time?
Sarah: Maybe 8?
Justin: At night?
Sarah: Sure, why not?
Justin: Oh, I just thought you'd come earlier so we'd have more time to study, that's all.
Sarah: I don't mind staying late.
Justin: Oh, ok, I don't mind studying late either, I'm a night owl.
Sarah: See you tomorrow.
[hangs up phone]

Ok, so we're all set up. She even texted me afterwards to confirm our "date," as she called it (since she was texting I guess she just didn't want to type out "study date"). Anyway, here's my problem: I've never had someone over to study with me. What should I expect? I know the obvious stuff to do: lots of lighting, no distractions like music, etc., so we can really focus on sociology. But what else? Like should I offer her a drink as soon as she gets here, or wait for a while, or what? Should it be soda or fruit juice, or just avoid the sweet stuff and stick with water? Should I sit across from her or beside her? Should we use two books or share one? Also, what if she keeps touching me again like I mentioned in my previous post? That could get awkard, who wants to be touched constantly by a girl you hardly know? If that happens would it be rude to cut the studying short? I told my buddy about Sarah coming over and he just laughed and said "About time. Good for you."  What does this mean? Is studying with someone really that different than studying alone? I really don't want to mess this up, if it works out this could be the key to me getting an A, and maybe even a good reference from this teacher when I transfer schools!
