Friday Night Date Report
25

So I am afraid this date report will disappoint my fans who love my funny/scary/dramatic LA-men-are-weird stories.

This was a reasonably handsome, reasonably smart, reasonably successful guy from the Caribbean.

I think you should give the OK guy another chance.

I agree with Music

but marina.. ?? How do you get so many dates?? Do you write to them or do they write to you.?

Do you have professional photos up ??

Maybe you could give us novices some pointers on how to even get a date or maybe write an article or book on how to date in this day and age and being mature women..

My friends says that I can get them on the hook and reel them on but they they drop off the line. Am I doing something wrong?

Just talking out loud I guess!!

In other words, you're a flirt, and men equate flirting with sex. They assume you're easy (not saying you are) so they ask you out.

I have a friend like that who is married now. She's pretty much abandoned me, but back when she really was a friend and we'd go out, she'd step in between me and any guy I was talking to so she could flirt. It was very frustrating. She really just needed the attention of every man in the room in order to feel worthy. It was a true sign of low self-esteem.

I kind of wonder if the reason why you're finding so many nut jobs is that you are focusing on their looks and getting attention and not on who they really are. I'd give your date from last night another chance if I were you.

How can I be a flirt if they walk up to me in public places and I haven't even noticed them until then?

Oh yes you can! Trust me, I've seen it. It's in the eyes, the way you stand, body language, etc. You definitely can flirt without saying a word!

I think I understand what you are saying Marina (maybe)

One does have to have an open mind, heart and body language but the part about online is baffling. How does a guy know you if its just online.

I could see IRL flirting and all and getting attention of guys and they looking back but OLD its tougher.

If sex couldn't be portrayed in a photograph, the modeling industry would go bankrupt.

yeah; so true

and those girls are like 14 years old on those magazine covers and all half naked..and anorexic..

Right now as we speak my dream would be to pose in playboy.. I know i would need more airbrushing that the world has but hey I would do it...

You know I always dont like those commericals where the older folks are doing viagra, depends, gird meds, denture cream.

I so hate that about this country... so plastic, materialistic and superficial and geared toward skinny, plastic, anorexic
