    not sure about on line dating.willing try. however maybe a bit too shy.was married for 25 years.very loyal but also very trusting which was my downfal. didnt see it coming. taking a long time to recover from break up of family. picking up the pieces and moving on is not as easy as i thought it will be. sometimes the more you know people the more you like animals. they dont lie.

      I agree with you solar55.Animals do not talk and they are grateful for the love and affection that they are shown.As long as they have food,shelter ,a loving hug now and then they are sincerely and genuinely appreciative.NOT requiring anymore,nor placing unrealistic expectations on you.I understand your situation and respect your honesty and sincerity.Maybe we can chat from time to time as FRIENDS...NO EXPECTATIONS!!!!!! Simply bonding and connection through some get to know me conversation.Starting out small,whens your birthday?whats your favorite color?etc,etc.etc.............................I am up for it,if you are.........................Respectfully Written Nubian 44

    people tends to speak about love but many of us take love as an illusion and mirage of the mind bcos the meaning of love transcend ordinary.many of us are fake because our love affairs are conditional.

    Any way the truth must be said at this juncture. A waman should be treated just like a baby coz that's natural and has to be done. Pamper them, some times may not only to giving tham every nthing on eath, i am not saying we should not but while doing that you have to apply that of the natural which is care , love , romantic, sincerity which is important, by so doing this you will see that the bad side of her will be gradually cured by you, lol...

    True love or real love is not based on wealth, fame,money power, colour, race. It is a natural gift starts within a inmost of a person. It takes some quality time to refine itself to venture through the confusing world of love.

    What is colour, Where beauty is skin deep. As some guys expressed that you go to jail for fallen off the bench but the main thing is the chemical interaction between two people which should not be taken for granted by anybody irrespective of their gender.

      this reply is to writer1259, well for me woman are to be handled with care, but most men this day just feel they can miss handle women and just walk away like that, so if women are giving more attention based on care or low in the society then its worth it, at least we hardly hear that female rape male, but its always the male....so we should be protected......

    I sometimes get a kick about how hesitant some people are who have not yet dated interracially. The first girl I ever fell in love with was a pretty black girl. We were in our teens and, what was between us just came on all by itself. That's the best kind no matter whether it's interracial or not. My teens were a long time ago and, I have had and will forever have an affinity for black women. I feel fortunate that I was able to be a part of this in my teens and to be a part of it today.

    Would someone PLEASE tell me WHY these on-line services, and society, in general, INSIST that women must be the VICTIMS, and that men must, always, be the abuser/perpetrator/criminal/etc? I can name PLENTY of women, who use, abuse, then cast MEN aside, just for the pleasure of saying "Yes! I did it! And I am PROUD of it!" Why arent men more aggressive, nowadays? Lets see: 1) Date "rape" - Yes, if a woman does not like a mans performance, she "gets even", by charging him with raping her. He goes to jail, and she has a huge laugh! 2) Sexual "harrassment" - In the work-place, and in society, in general, women are allowed to act, and DO, as they please, while men are required to conform to new laws, which state that, if a man "offends" a woman, HE goes to jail. On the other hand, IF a woman insults a man, even by PUBLICLY screaming in his face "You're NOT a man! You dont deserve a woman!", society says this is "womans perogative". Now, do you understand why so many men stay "On the bench", and DONT, actively, try for dates.

      hi there, I must say that, having read through your points of arguement, there is not one positive word, comment, or sentence. Kharma bequeths Kharma, or what you say that iwha you'll get. It's a Universal spiritual law, no matter your creed, colour or sex. Change your attitude by the very words that you speak and smile instead of frowning. Happiness is a frame of mind, so is sadness, we choose these frames or allow others to steal or frames, some for a moment, a time , a day a lifetime. It's up to us to make lfe work, take back your frame of mind and be happy again, smile, change your outlook, Stopblaming the world, look within, And then see thdifference it makes with woman, she'll see a happy, smiling confident guy, not some nut busting, jaw grinding idiot.

        Wao, fantastic comments Manwolff, I actually smile when I read your comments I like your comment Happiness is a frame of mind, once you choose to be happy you will. Yes, I do understand that sometime when things get hard we think everything around us is bad, yet God has a better plan for us all, at the right. Even when things seems not to be fine, keep a smile knowing that is not yet the right time.

      I was not over but it went to fast. ... I rehurse : ur message... is quite touching. Indeed there is allways time to live and to love. Indeed 4 years is maybe the period needed to free the first second for ur own being, after giving it all to baby. Well if U are interested to meet some other hum&an being just like You, it would be my pleasure; But be informed, I am not the kind of Caucasion running the US streets. I am a one of the old continent Europe, conservative and allways wearing suits and ties brtween 8 AM and 20 PM actually. If not wish you a lot of happiness. Lucas

Coaching Testimonial

"The Coaching Service served as an incredible perk and has really enhanced my online dating experience"

Submitted by: Karen, USA, 34

My Dating Coach really took the time to go through my profile thoroughly. First she viewed my pictures and gave me great feedback.

She read through the written portion of my profile, line by line, and gave direct feedback on how to add my personality to it.

My amazing consultant, even asked how my contacts where going and offered a few suggestions to increase my interactions with new men.

I took her advice and made the suggested adjustments.

I have received more contact from men, more views, and have started communicating with more people which was the whole point of joining the site in the first place.

The Coaching Service served as an incredible perk and has really enhanced my online dating experience. Thanks!
