Understand men ebook

I get spam constantly for ebooks entitled "understand how to communicate with men" and "make any man fall in love with you." they're 49.95! Lol. Just wondering if anyone has gotten those too and/or actually bought the ebook? I'm curious as to what's in it. I don't know if it's worth 49.95(!) however I'm beginning to wonder if all my failed relationships are due to a lack of communication skills. I'm beginning to think that whatever it takes to interest a man....I don't have it. I'm 5"4', 110 lbs and constantly get compliments about my attractiveness, but I haven't had a boyfriend in 4 years. It's sad!

Veronica. Sorry to hear that. But 49.95 for and ebook. It had better be a ninety pager. I hope you find the answer on that book, before you invest the money. There are a lot of bogus e-books out there.

Oh I'm definitely not buying the book, but AM curious as to what "revelations" it has! Probably all stuff I've heard before. Yes, you are right....I fall for the same type of guy all the time: guys who don't pay attention to me and are sometimes jerks! I'm aware of this issue and trying to change. I've been alone for 4 years now to re-evaluate myself and to do some soul searching. I feel that now is the right time for ms to begin dating again, but am having trouble getting a man to find interest in me. Where does one go to meet men? My friends have set me up with some dates but it didn't work out, men never approach me at a bar, there's no one at work because everyone's married..... People have told me I'm beautiful, but obviously I have flaws otherwise I'd be happily married by now. I think my personality is too bold so I've been told. I play guitar, am knowledgeable on every subject under the sun bc I love books, know tons about music and movies. I do love to go on about work and complain about it sometimes and tell about funny things that happened. Perhaps men see me as whiny? I don't know. As soon as I open my mouth, men seem to lose interest (I have a normal voice lol). Oh well, I've given up. When I was 22-27 years old I was meeting men like crazy and got asked out all the time just from hanging out at restaurants or at work happy hour. Since I hit 30, I can't get a second date to save my life! I look the same as I did 3 years ago, so I don't know what the issue is. I might add that at 27 I moved out of NYC to the burbs for my job, so I guess locale has something to do with slim pickins'. Don't want to move back to NYC though!

I agree with you.

Consider that most eBooks of ANY kind are sold online for about $10.

It seems to me that the burbs is more like a place for married people are people living with their partners. As far as the bar scene goes, you don't want to meet a guy in a bar. That very rarely works out. For some reason, some guys see a bar as a pick up joint and their goals are too short-term. Getting set up is awkward. I hate getting set up on dates. It's just strange.

I'm not saying you do this, but I have a friend, P and she's always complaining she can't get a second date. I introduced her to a buddy of mine, who's into gaming. Right away, she said "so B tells me you're into gaming.... I reached a level 5 on such and such game and beat the high score of (insert astronomical number here). My buddy was like "great.... I can't even touch a level 4 and here's this chick got it all over me". He didn't call her and P couldn't figure out why. She told me, "maybe you could introduce me to a better gamer?" I was floored.

If that conversation was noted verbatim, I don't necessarily think that's arrogance. When gamers talk to one another, they talk in terms of how far they got on what game. I don't see anything arrogant in what she said, she was just making conversation.

If a man can't handle a woman who has skills, then I see that as someone who I don't want to date either. I won't change my personality for a man or hide my skills. My sister is a yoga teacher, holds a doctorate, and plays piano (and much more! Lol! I'm jealous!) and her husband saw that and was so impressed by all this that he asked her out 3 times before she finally said yes. I'm opposite of my sister....I'm more shy and less boastful, but I have many talents which I share over time, but not on a first date. Perhaps my problem is that I need to? Who knows. Well, spring is in the air. Maybe I will meet someone soon! Thanks for the positive feedback & comments! :-)

I probably didn't explain the convo very well. A lot more went on than what I wrote. I was being lazy.

She kind of did sound arrogant. She was shooting off her numbers like a machine gun. Talking very fast and whatnot. She also threw in a couple of ha ha's. I know some guys don't want to date a girl who could beat their high score, but I think she contributed to the fizzle out too.
