As a single woman trying to navigate the online dating world, it seems challenging to figure out if a person is honestly representing who they are.

I've thought the same thing many times. My favorite was a guy who sent me a photo of himself that he'd shot in the bathroom mirror with his cell phone...naked. There were shampoo bottles covering up the "strategic" area, but come on.

Oh you know why a guy who is in good shape posts a photo of himself shirtless, don't you?

I like the ones with the pictures of them holding fish, standing next to their slain deer, ducks or rabbits, holding their rifles, or their 50 skeet trophies.

I live in an urban area so people aren't into hunting that much.

Hi guys;

I wanted to share something... I once said a guy from Fla. from OLD was iming me and emailing me. We finally spoke on the phone last night after I thought what is the point. He lives in Fla. and I live in NY .His pictures and profile looked okay but who knows? One photo was def. of him younger and then another was him at 52. He says he is 52.. He still looked pretty good though. In shape and all that good stuff.

Anyway; Here is the fun part .. He was originally from South Africa and has been in the States for 30 years but he still has the British Accent and i was blown away.. The accent alone was so sexy and dont know about you guys but those accents always got to me. So we talked for over an hour and all I wanted to just keep listening to was the accent..so now its like who cares what he looks like; although he looks pretty good It was fun.. I dont know what he wants with me . Only thing I can think of is that he is a play-a

I think probably the only time I would have a fling is if I knew it wasn't going anywhere, like if he just decided to visit NY for the weekend--then you know you're not going to get emotionally attached.

Hi

well? it was a cross between a British and dutch accent but it was so sexy. I wonder what is the appeal for me to these accents.Although one time when I was 19 I visited Puerto Rico and fell in love with a HOT spanish guy for a week.

Yeah; A fling sounds so good to me but he hasnt actually asked yet?? I know for me that it will be so difficult to keep emotions in check but since I have lost my job; have a son who is an adult and basically am living at the

Hi again;

well? The Fla. guy was i-iming (sp)me before and we were talking and yep he states he wants to have a fling. atleast he is honest. okay; here is the weird part. He says he is not a play-a so isnt that a contradiction?
