Do You Think We Will Ever Be Able to Stop Robo Calls or Unwanted Telephone Calls?

I've read that some fraudulent callers can be downright rude or threatening. One even said they could never find him because he was calling from a prison. You'd think in this day and age something could be done. We've gone to the moon but can't fix the common telephone. Maybe it is too big a business like the tobacco industry. Where else can you market a product that is bad for your health. I guess getting into someone's home has become worth its weight in gold.

Do You Think We Will Ever Be Able to Stop Robo Calls or Unwanted Telephone Calls?

Considering how these fraudsters can spoof a telephone number, they have an endless supply of numbers that can't be traced back to them. Blocking doesn't do any good because they just get another number OR use words to show up on caller id.

Queen bed. Don't know how I made it in anything smaller.

RE: Marriage regrets???

Luckily I only wasted 11 years on the bum.

RE: What will you be doing on New Years Eve and Day?

RE: If your all alone this year

You're not the only one alone. Plenty of us out there. But I'm sure we still have a lot to be thankful for.

RE: The van Allen belt

He made us able to think and do for ourselves. Even after our fall from grace we were still more pure than we are now. All the problems we have now can be traced back to something we did or didn't do. Why should HE keep stepping in to save us from ourselves? We can ask for his forgiveness and it will be granted but that forgiveness does not erase what has been done and the consequences that we must live with.

RE: Are all men stupid?

Unfortunately some men are clueless, heartless and ignorant when it comes to being a caregiver. Let some clouds come in and they are gone or "busy" or just dumb. I can't count the number of times I've seen a son ignore the decline of his mother or a husband seem not to get that something is wrong with his wife. It is heartbreaking. Let some problems come into some men's lives and they are ready to even get married to get that caregiver.

RE: I am so Tired of being Alone

You're not alone. Lots of us in the same boat. I never say impossible. Just take it a day at a time and enjoy yourself along the way.

RE: When Your Response Gets No Response!

Usually when I don't respond it's because I have a suspicion that the person is bogus. The words they use (when they have Masters Degree). They give a site for you to contact them at and/or a phone number. Maybe sometimes I make a mistake but I do try.

RE: HELP ME - Is he cheating on me

It's a lot easier to determine playgirls and playboys in person. Trying to begin a relationship without ever meeting the person in real life is crazy. Impossible. Even those who have a relationship and then move away from each other, that strains a relationship..... breaks it IMHO Online stuff is great but nothing beats the old fashioned meeting someone in person and developing a relationship that way. Heck, even that tried and true method sometimes goes down the toilet. dunno dunno dunno

RE: Which came first? the chicken or the egg?

Chickens don't need a rooster to lay eggs. They can lay an egg a day but they just aren't fertile. Nice to have fresh eggs.

RE: ”…friens first” = impotent

So let's see, you get ones that say "friends first" or the ones that say they "need to have sex first to see if it's worth starting a relationship". Friends first might not be so bad!

Why so quick to jump to the phone? You typed to get here, why not type a bit more to get to know someone. It wouldn't be forever and you could see if there's any interest. THEN go for the next step, the phone.

RE: satisfaction came in a train reaction

Satisfaction Came in a CHAIN Reaction hole


I'm originally from NJ and they had license plates in the front and back of the car. I went out ONCE with this guy and I noticed his front plate had the month and year switched. When I told him, he said all he had to do was to put that plate on the back of the car and it would be correct. Even went so far as to trek into a hardware store for a screwdriver. Needless to say I never saw him again.

RE: Maybe I am old fashioned

The part that always gets me is that these people manage to write on these sites but as soon as the first chat it's off to the phone. What's wrong with exchanging words on a site? It could be cheaper and you can put thought into each others responses. I guess I am old fashioned too.
