I do hate the ones who constantly bash 'game players'. I play softball, does that count?


I hate that, too. I'm a helluva poker player and I ain' bad at Rummy, either.

"Red flag warning to men:
do not send me interests that follow this pattern:"

Picky, picky, picky.


Try reading my profile, it's states clearly I am picky.
Which leads me to my point...
red flag: someone who sends me mail & clearly has not read my profile.

True that. However, none of the the things on your "red flag" list are included on your profile. A few other no-no's are, but those aren't included in the "red flag" list.

It's all good--this is the Internet Dating Game. We're free to make up the rules as we go along.

So should I edit the about my children part.

I don't think I was trying to impress more like looking for someone that appreciates/understands that.

does it really go without saying.

A guy at my work says he don't have kids.

Incomplete profiles and when they say you can reach me at this e-mail address, when you see the same pic of the same person right next to each other, but the heading and/or location is different.

Once in a while I will spot a profile that says "Will fill in later", but the member never fills it in even after being on site for a few months. But they want a relationship.

Yeah, the kids thing sets off my alarm, too. I dated two different guys who I WISH had put that in the profile. Neither of them could have a relationship AND be a father. One does not preclude the other. Married couples do it all the time. These two seemed to be control freaks who wouldn't trust a babysitter or the ex to take care of the kids while he was gone. So this is what I think of when the profile says, "Kids come first." And I stay away.

I went to lunch w/ an online date who right away asked for my opinion on a heavy world politics/history subject. (silly me, I answered honestly) It was like raising a red flag for a raging bull. At first he tried to convience me that I didn't really have that opinion, then when his approach failed, he ripped into me for holding a different belief. Needless to say, I walked out laughing at him.
The overly intense types raise big red flags with me... I mean, come on, who wants to drag a first date to the hospital for having an aneurism!

For future reference... it's best to try to get the blood to move out of his head and into other parts of the body.

Ooh politics! I start talking politics via email. I'm pretty intense in some of my views. I need to know that we can make it through dinner before I agree to go out.

Very cute, I lmao! Oh, and for future reference, aneurysms can originate in the abdominal aorta as well.

I'm not so sure

Most people don't wanna meet your kids right off and you don't want them to either. Both rightfully so.

I'm trying not to lose hope, but finding someone that is happy with a 2 hour date on a tuesday nite hasn't been easy

Normally, a parent has every other weekend free and some nights during the week. I've dated. I have kids. I didn't neglect them or did I subject them to a parade of "uncles." I had to reschedule sometimes because situations do arise. My dates were understanding. But if you don't think it can be done, it can't. Guess I've sort of strayed from the topic.

i thought i would bring this particular thread forward because the newbies are whining about red flags of course! perhaps the one red flag that should jump out at anyone is any major city such as NY NY or L A Ca. this is an immediate delete for me unless i am bored and want to practice my BS! LOL if this person cannot find "the one" there what in the hell are they doing in the city! just hit the delete button! how could someone be so dumb as to think that the person hitting on you is real! i have deleted about 6 or so emails already this morning. if the newbie is stupit enuff to rede the e mail perhaps they mite notice that the use of the english language might also be a red flag. hey guys!!! recognize this line? "i be the lonely girl". sadly i do realize that the reason such emails continue is because there is at least one idiot out there that keeps answering them. we be jammin

As I'm quite new here, I appreciate this being brought out again. It certainly made me giggle! I recognized that through my searches, I'm very guilty of randomly, or not so randomly, passing on certain profiles. Gotta love online searches! Can we say GRAMMAR!!

It's rather funny, I find myself responding more to the initial message of "Hi, I came across your profile, you seem like a nice gal, hit me up sometime." Not the more demanding, "Oh wow, you're so great, and I'm so lonely, let's go!"

Over matter of factually, and anally precise.
If y know so well how come ya don't have what ya think you want or need?

Hey don't pick on the new girl. Welcome the new girl!
If she hit a sore spot with you that is your problem, as she most likely didn't even know you existed until she hit your bad grammar PUCKER botton.
