yeah-- nice guy scenario--- but that works to an extent if you have multitudes of patience, but you also have to be a little devious as well---- see, you can be the friend that the girls turn to when the boyfriends act typically male-- you don't hit on them (directly of course), you listen, you justify their feelings, etc., and then, before they know it, they've fallen for you after a number of months

now that gets tricky in and of itself b/c once you've established these emotional parameters, the only way you go is down when you yourself become the boyfriend

and then there is another 'friend' who she complains to about you, and the cycle continues.....

Ah- the "damsel in distress" character. My mother plays that one pretty well. Indeed, it's one of her key roles.

I personally prefer the "aloof wallflower" character myself.

Huh, you didn't know women did that? Bosh.

that makes two of us.

That's the trouble of being an "aloof wallflower"- it never prepares one for compliments.

well, he slowly vanishes away, of course.... you know men, we all want what we can't necessarily have, plus it's the thrill of the hunt and chase and once we have obtained our objective, the thrill is diminished and you can imagine the rest..... plus you have that general fear of commitment, etc....

that's a gross overgeneralization b/c there are many many times when it actually works out forever (i had a 7 year success story along these lines until the 7 year itch came up) but usually, the guys that play this angle are doing just that-- playing an angle not used by many guys very successfully b/c of the lack of patience and imagination

oh, it's completely possible to have platanoic male friends and i wasn't suggesting that all males who act simply as friends are using this angle-- i have few female friends that i would never sleep with in a million years and it's not b/c they are trolls or anything

Ah hem

OK, as the 26 year old mother here I'm stepping in on the original subject of this thread to post a WARNING for you young singles out there, this just out today. Better read it ;(

13 year old found dead with Man....Authorities believe Kacie met Fuller in an Internet chat room about a month ago and that he likely deceived her into believing he was much younger.

Please be careful!

Pish-posh. Red P, get out from under that bed this instant.

Listen- the world is as dangerous as you make it to be.

If you want drama in your life, you call it to you. If you truly want happiness in your life, you call it to you as well. Even with the odd occasional roll of the dice, it's just as easy to have the story turn out great as it is for it to turn out shitty.

The worst boogie man in the world is the one that we create in our own minds.
