I just have to take a moment and vent....3 weeks ago... I ran into an old customer that I used to wait on in a store I worked at... he asked for my phone number... called me 2x... asked me to lunch... didn't show up at all....I called him... he was asleep and didn't talk...haven't heard from him since....ok.....another person came into my life...(I have known him for quite awhile)...he has come to my house twice...only to try to make the moves on me...(haven't been on a date with him yet)...and then doesn't call.... I called him awhile ago... he said he would call me back... he didn't...THEN...I get a call from out of the blue from a guy I met about 3 months ago... all he did was tell me how lonely and broke he was... like that was going to make me want to go out with him.... geesh....What is up with this? I am 36 yrs old... have a daughter who is in college... not into the bar scene... I am vegetarian... I don't want a fling... or an affair... where are the nice guys? ARe you there? Please assure me there are still great guys out there!<br><br>

Uh...nevermind. I posted that before I read your anti-libertarian remark in another thread. Ew, totalitarian government lover!

There probably are some good men out there. But you should be aware that most women don't seem to want a good man. They want "Mr. Right," "Prince Charming," "The One." A merely good man is worthless to them.<br><br><br><br>
I can't comment on the guys you have been running into lately. People who can't or won't keep dates are people you shouldn't want to get involved with anyway. The guy who "put the moves on you" without taking you out--it's a little hard to fathom his psychology. Horny? Impatient? Unsociable? Cheap? All of the above?<br><br><br><br>
You might have to take more of the initiative yourself if you want to meet a good man.

No it's not like that.<br><br><br><br>
I'm for liberty, for all, which imho requires "guidelines" for behavior, some of them in the form of legislation.

There are plenty of good men out there. I'm dating one of them. Oh, wait--you were looking for good SINGLE men... Don't despair--they do exist and you will probably meet one when you least expect it. (Heck, there are some good single men on the boards!)

There are plenty of good men out there but, you need to learn to clean out the the clutter before you allow them to come into your life. Figure out what role are you playing in these scenerios. Did you invite the second man to come to your house before ever going on a date, or did he just show up? Ask yourself why you would you continue to talk to him if he made unwanted advances the first time?<br><br>
If someone behaves in a manner you find offensive, or disagreeable, it's your responsibility to say something about it, or walk away from it. If you don't say, or do anything, about it you're giving tacit consent on how to be treated. The world gives you what you expect from it, nothing more. You need to ask for more by expecting more. Sure you'll meet the occasional creep but you learn to keep moving, don't even bother to pause to figure out why someone sleeps over a lunch date or doesn't want to return a call. If you didn't recognize the potential for such behavior prior to you looking forward to getting together with them, chances are their behavior will just confuse you after the fact. If you meet someone and see chaos, shrug it off and keep walking. Unless of course, you like drama.<br><br>
Trust that there are wonderful (if not perfect) men out there.<br><br>
If you're in the NYC/New England area, I have a few hand me downs I could send your way. I mean truly nice guys.

Well unrealistic expectations I think afflicts both genders.<br><br><br><br>
But actually calling people back or wanting a real relationship instead of a fling or not calling people only when your broke is the least one should look for- Prince Charming not by a long shot.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I agree with Baby- the only person one can change is themself, so look for how you meet these men, how you are attracting them and reacting to them, and perhaps how you can start attracting better men.

well i've always felt that once you stop looking, that's when one falls out of the sky and lands in your lap.
