How do women choose partners

... or even male friends
<provoked by this thread>
I know I always prefer to make reconnoitering and then choose my targets the first day I am on a new field. If the opposite happens, then there is the Newton's third law: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Almost always a doomed adventure... Maybe these are protection mechanisms at work, when I am getting unanticipated attention, I am more scared than excited...
Is it only me? Do other women prefer to wait to be "targeted"?

Well, you know what, I am really trying to be helpful for men.
From my own experience, if you meet a resistance, you either give up (which will really save you lots of time if you aren't horribly interested in this particular woman) or (if you are) be prepared to overpatient her -- this is very well possible, just be prepared to wait forever

No.
But this is a lesson for me -- never speak up again. Thank you, John.

"Is John Dunn a registered sex offender? Was he a co-consipirator in the Washington area sniper attacks? Has he ever robbed a liquor store? Does he hate gay people and/or pet owners? Has he ever taken a bribe from a foreign government? Does he wash his hands after using the bathroom? Is he simply an imbecile? Is it possible to ask any of these questions without accusing John Dunn of anything?"
Bye, little boy, John Dunn, I was thinking better of you.

too bad.

Honestly, I didn't intend to have the post fit in so well with your replies!!! (I swear to God!) I just stumbled upon this link while looking for another link and was like: Hmmm... may as well throw that into the other thread for some laughs. Then, probably as I was filling in the URL wizard, you come along and post another replay that makes it fit in really tight. (So I throw a brick -- and before it lands you drop a bucket of cement!!!)
I mean you gotta admit it is funny. The title on the page is "Successful Relationships with Russian Woman". I had to read it for awhile to make sure it wasn't some satire site.
This was as coincidental as that conversation on irony you had with JY, which makes it all the more hilarious to me. Check out this link: Poetry & Urdu thread at this date/time: posted July 03, 2003 04:21 PM
Is there a new-fangled term for when two disparate replies intertwine so well together that they seem to have been meant for one another?
Happenspamce? or an Apro-casm?? (Apropos Sarcasm)

By their ability to present lumps of freshly killed meat at meal times. At least that's how it works in England ...

Which Page?
The link I had above - on the upper left hand corner of the page underneath the main title is "Successful Relationships with Russian Women" - I'm not so sure how legit the site is, it came on on something else I was googling. I thought it was something from the Onion.com.
---------
Okay, so I'm not sure how that segways into my being offended all the time or all the other felonious activity??

Do we read what we dream about?
If you want to find out exactly how I found that site, put in "Russian" + "Hell" in google. I did this in reaction to the other thread, where you jokingly said that you were Hell. I figured, let me see what funny thing comes up, if any. On the second page of links was the one listed above. (the first page had one where ~supposedly~ some Russian Scientist discovers hell when drilling for oil :roll: :roll:
So do we read what we dream about?? Hmmm... I mean I guess we could, but we probably don't too often. From what little I know, dreams are conflicts and all have a problem and a solution. (I think that's a Fruedian take on them.) I typically only recall dreams when I'm under a lot of stress or going through an intense period (be it good or bad.)
You do realize that you have a tendency to kill first and ask questions later??

I've lived a sheltered life, much like a hobbit.
In my USA experience, many women like bad boys. I heard one lament about her boy being in jail and how lonely she was. Is this just USA culture or is it more common than that?

for not wise men and women "bad" (99.8% of us including myself) has some atraction, cause it seems interesting. One thinks that behind "bad" are romantic secrets to discover. But its not only women, its men too. And its not allways so.

In my USA experience, many women like bad boys. Or what they ~think~ is bad... As a goof I got a mohawk four days before having brain surgery. I went to the same bars that I usually went to and NO ONE recognized me. You would never believe how many women were all over me - nooo I take that back -> not ME at all, just this image of what they thought I was. (In my head I was laughing like hell - but I sort of didn't like it.) It was so OBVIOUS how screwy and how fake it all was. It made me feel like hmmm... not a piece of meat, but rather like an object or a trophy. (If I knew I would have do it a week earlier when I still had some libido.)
I couldn't have imagined what the reaction of women would have been. I wasn't even prepared for it. (Wow, so its that easy!! - who'da guessed??) I sometimes would have to ask the girls what the heck they would tell their fathers if I was dating them...
I also had a number of promoters come up to me and give me free passes for all my friends to come by and hang out in their clubs. :roll: (passes for my totally straight friends...)
Funny thing is, inside I felt like ... well, me. And people totally totally treat you different. Lots of people are super-mean to you. Like going totally totally out of their way to get in your face and make fun of you.
I now always wonder what a person is feeling like inside, when I see someone who is seriously doing their own thing when it comes to their image...
