RE: Why Women Pick the Bad Guys.

The article is as close to the truth as you can get, of course that's just my opinion but over the years I've seen it time and time again!

RE: Should we 'do it' on the first date?

21st century living has become a nanny state driven by opinions.

The majority of opinions are unscientific and inaccurate.

There are many reliable scientific resources on sexuality.

Humans are DNA genetically programmed for reproduction.

Being rational will not stop having sex.

If the hormones are active, sex will occur.

With all the STI's, STD's in circulation carry condoms as insurance.

RE: Should we 'do it' on the first date?

I had to laugh, the article does not make any mention of what lesbians and gay guys should, or should not do, if they like each other. This is where the male vs female argument falls flat on its face.

It's like inviting a transgender individual to spend the day on a naturist beach.

I have had females pulling my boxer shorts down on a first date, and I have had females taking deep offence when I have made it plain that I am not going to have sex with them on a first date. We are all human, and most people do not live their lives by someone else's rules. We don't need to do that, so why restrict what we do because someone else might not approve.

As for "parents, your church, friends, teachers, and your doctors. Politicians, advertisers, and the media" ..why on earth would you tell all of these people and organisations the intimate details of your sex life??

RE: Embracing the Holidays When You're Alone

That's nice bit of insight.

I'm looking down the barrel right now of becoming homeless, or at the very least breaking my rental lease on my unit, because I very recently quit a job where my colleagues and I were treated like we didn't matter in the workplace (cleaning in an aged care facility)

I have a job interview coming up tomorrow but the work, if I am selected, is only fill-in and will not sustain a living let alone covering my weekly rent. So yeah, pretty bleak looking....

Getting back to the article, it has given me the courage or push to look outside my own situation and volunteer with a charity to help on Christmas day, the marginalised and homeless.

....Being a natural 'people person', I might even consider visiting aged folk who have no family of their own. That would be very satisfying indeed. I will spare a few dollars to provide small gifts.

RE: How to Get Respect from Your Teenager

The lack of respect is 100% the parent's fault, number one is - the child was allowed too much freedom in all cases. The lack of discipline is the cause, but if the parent does not apply it early on, the battle is lost.
I was a teacher for 31 years and I never had any problem because my #1 subject was DISCIPLINE in the class room. When the legislatures forbade spanking, they lost the ball. I have paddled many children but I never hurt a one, a little tap is all it takes in most cases, whether it is in school, in the family, or in business, discipline is the very foundation of success. studecar professor

RE: 5 Steps to Ease Social Anxiety

SOCIAL ANXIETY AND PEER PRESSURE IS IN OUR HEADS ONLY. WE CREATE THOSE FEELINGS IN OUR MINDS AND THEN START WORRYING ABOUT IT. IN REALITY, ALL THESE COME FROM "LOW SELF-ESTEEM". IT'S THAT SIMPLE! WE NEED TO CHANGE OUR THINKING ABILITY, OTHERWISE, THESE TYPE OF ISSUES WILL OPEN A WIDE BUSINESS DOORS FOR PSYCHOLOGISTS. WE NEED TO BE OUR OWN PSYCHOLOGISTS, AND AVOID LOW THINKING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.typing

RE: The Overweight Woman is Desirable Too!

First of all, God did not make us over weight..That was a personal choice...{except for glandular} the bible calls it death by spoon......

Second: On dating sites 90% of over weight women LIE.....How do they lie....1: Head shots or just eyes and hair or lips...or photos of you a mile away....Or in their description....No photo but says....Curvy, Average, Rubenesque, a few pounds over. Obease

Last, being over weight is not healthy....Being overweight causes diabetics, heart disease, arthritis, spine and lumbar problems.. Over weight Parents bread over weight children.

You can glamorize being Overweight all you want...But big is not beautiful Big is a choice....Big is killing off people at an alarming rate.....No one was born to be Fat......

When you are ashamed to put the true you on a dating site then you are fooling yourself and trying to fool everyone else...It doesn't work

Be truthful to yourself and everyone else....There is someone for everyone on these sites...Hiding who you really are is not alluring or mysterious...Its just plain LYING.


OH yes you who will look me up , you will find me as Husky...I am not fat or skinny I have a waist up shot...No Big belly, no 3 chins. At 6' 1" and 230 I am husky...At 231 I will be fat...LOLOLyay

RE: The Overweight Woman is Desirable Too!

I've found overweight women to be real, meaning they don't mind being themselves from the start. Bigger women love whole-heartedly, don't go into a relationship with a full figured woman thinking that by encouraging them to lose weight, that you're going to "fix" them. They are beautiful the way God made them.

RE: THERE IS NARCISSISM IN THE FACE BOOK OR THE MADMAN OF THE VILLAGE LIVE?

thumbs up I like some of your made points ...."We have become a kind of paparazzi of our own image."laugh Maybe each of us can see some of that in self lol.
True, a certain amount of healthy Narcissism is a necessary surviving tool 'of a life long romance with oneself' and then there are people with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD)who covertly destroys the people who love them. : cheers:
You make it sound as if identifying a Narcissist is Simple as if 'someone is the centre of his own universe' but how do you recognise a Narcissist when a narcissist is behaving as an introvert or a shy person and working undercover to suck you in liking them (usually they pretend to like everything that you like in making you think your their long searched soul mate )? Let's not forget to say that most Narcissist is very charming people... perhaps appearing like a good sweet sheep, that hides dangers wolf inside, Woolf who will eat and suck all from you and give you nothing back.....and that's why they are called 'emotional vampires.'
How can you tell the difference between a Covert narcissist and an Introvert? The covert Narcissist will not necessarily display Narcissistic behaviour that is immediately recognizable!
We don't need to go into a deep psychological evaluation or become a Psychiatrist to understand all rainbow spectrum of Narcissist personality disorders but it is helpful to be aware of red flags warning signs that can save many people from unnecessary painful experiences like; loss of self-esteem, being financially ruined etc.

Here is some basic summary, simple overview what Narcissists usually do to their targets and how to recognise them:
-They are highly manipulative liars, incapable of openly accepting blame or responsibility for anything that isn't positive, and in fact, they relate any such admission to the weakness of other people.
-They call oneself a perfectionist and/or claim to be "a little OCD"
-They have outrageously adolescent daydreams about being a big famous something-or-other, grandiose fantasies about his or her life (I remember one Narcissist wanted me to believe that his distant ancestor like a great-grandfather was King Henry the VIII rolling on the floor laughing Another thing is that he wasn't much into taking self-portraits, although general belief is that all Narcissist love taking self-portraits, otherwise known as “the wand of narcissism,” but personally I do not think that this is necessarily the main recognition characteristic scold ).
-They are exhibitionist-type, being overly competitive and unacceptably aggressive when it comes to getting what they want, they feel a huge sense of (often unearned) entitlement and will manipulate and lie to exploit others to get what they want in seeking totalitarian despotic, sadistic power and control over others.
In first stage they love bombing you but have no any doubt, they can and will drop you off like a hot potato when you stop giving them Narcissist supply... or it can happen for any reason that doesn't make any sense to you...

People with balanced personality and sense of empathy do not just discard person and disappear without giving any closer but to Narcissist it's a "normal pattern of behaviour" ...

RE: The Overweight Woman is Desirable Too!

I kinda fell apart after my last marriage failed. The results has been 100 lbs overweight that I'm battling to lose! Women say that I am an attractive man. Yeah well why haven't I had a date in six years. Is it because I am retired living on 1/3 what I use to make financially. I have to say that another divorce, losing our house and everything was the straw that broke the camel's back. But I am happy to say that that I believe in God and our Lord Jesus Christ! That in Him resides total Healing and Restoration. Paul

RE: The Overweight Woman is Desirable Too!

Firstly, I'm stating this as a guy that's still carrying a few pounds. I'm perhaps 25 lbs heavier than I should be.

The general laws of attraction seem to state otherwise in relation to weight and desirability. Off course there are exceptions but the general consensus is that the more attractive and fit looking your are corresponds with desire. I mean this in the physiological arousal of human beings to each other.The psychological research seems to be evidence that we are attracted to the fit, lean and good looking mating partners because they will provide offspring good healthy off spring. This stuff is coded into our DNA so this politically correct bullshit is wrong. Again, I am saying this as someone who was badly over weight albeit i have lost a significant amount of weight. My confidence has gone up, my self esteem and I feel healthier. To be propagating this kind of bullshit is wrong. Even as an over weight man, I always always found fit beautiful women far far more attractive than an over weight woman. All my life I have experienced it amongst my friends and any man I knew that we found fit normal weight women far more attractive than an over weight woman. So please stop with the problem. You are not doing someone who is over weight any favours by speaking this bull shit crap. You are trying to normalise something that is unhealthy and damaging to someone by trying to normalise it.

RE: Why Women Pick the Bad Guys.

All my days I have seem to attract dominate women hence they see me as pu**y whipped to the 10th degree. Many have no respect because of that. A guy needs to earn that respect. First impression counts. If a guy shows he is strong and in control of his life there is a natural attraction ftom women as they seek a leader not a follower. Ever notice in every romance story there is always a hero and a damsel in distress? No matter how much women today claim they dont need a rescue they dont want to be led around on a leash and they think they are so empowered to run corporations or even the presidency deep down they still want a man who is not a momma's boy or some panty waist. Women may want their equal as men do but, the tide is shifting with empowerment of women who are declaring they had enough of abuse from men and making choices to suit them. There is nothing wrong with that. However, men need to still maintain their status in the race or fall on the wayside. The bad guy vs nice guy is always in conflict within himself. Some men display more of the bad guy persona for protection of his ego against other bad guys. Bad guys also have to be in touch with their goodness offering compassion. Women will sometimes gauge how they will be treated by their men by how men get along with their mother. If men dont get along with mom they wont get along with women in general.

RE: The Overweight Woman is Desirable Too!

The main reasons that overweight women are attractive to most of the man is tht they propagate the signal implying "I am so powerfull, healthy and nutrition-reserved woman that I can raise up lots of children (i.e. offspring of your genealogy) so that your family name goes on". I am one of them who are attracted to chubby/curvy/overweight women.head banger

RE: Why Women Pick the Bad Guys.

There is elements of some selective 'half truths' is this article and on the other hand it's totally wrong. It's not a universal given and it's all relative as most things in life are. It's subjective depending on the person. Women with low self esteem and abandonment issues will unconsciously pick the men that will full-fill their sick need for abandonment. They will choose insecure relationships because it will match their insecure relationship with their father. The degree of dysfunction which occurred will be to the same degree that they will the person who will match that dysfunction in their present lives. The worse they were neglected the worse the partner they choose can often be. If they were beaten as children they can often gravitate towards a domestic abuser in later life. However, the converse occurs on the other side. A healthy well adjusted young woman will choose nice men who also have a healthy sense of self esteem and will treat them right. Men also can choose women who match their own childhood relationships with their mothers. There is a theory that we unconsciously choose the very people whom will expose the shortcomings and dysfunctions we need to address in ourselves.
So this article is wrong in that it makes a bold and sweeping generalisations about 'women'. It's actually barbed in a tone of misogynistic resentment towards women. I feel he is actually twisting a certain amount of half truths to take a pot shot at women with his own subjective readings from popular psychology. So women picking bad boys is relative to the degree they have suffered dysfunction and how they feel about themselves and the converse is true where healthy women will choose nice men relative to the their own sense of self worth. The person who wrote this is to be possibly a manipulative individual who uses any awareness and insights into how he can manipulate vulnerable women.
