  1. I spent several years down in Houston and found an amazing church. I met some of the best people I have ever known down there. I could tell you all about it but I’d be taking up way too much room in this thread. If you can move to a location without placing too much risk on your career, I’d strongly encourage you to try it, considering how important finding a wife is to you and the joy it would bring you…especially, if you have never lived outside your state or have been there since college. If you’re 45, single, never had a relationship, still in the same place and that thought bothers you…then you might regret not taking the chance to move, when you were younger.…although, OR is a very beautiful state so in that sense you will be downgrading lol. If you do move, I hope you update everyone with a post. Good luck Vince!
  2. I don't think you have anything to worry about. While you're dating just clearly discuss your expectations/ideas for the kind of foundation you expect in your marriage (as you just did above), you will greatly mitigate (not eliminate) the risk of having a wife prioritizing her children before her marriage. You're not picky, you just know yourself better than most people know themselves. On the bright side of things, I would imagine if you married the kind of women you're looking for she will respect, see the value and greatly appreciate the work you put into your carrier, just as you will have for her role in raising the children. And you two will look for ways to reward each other...Also, one of many great benefits to knowing yourself well, it can allow you to focus more on the person you're dating and not yourself. And this can give you confidence in your decisions when you're dating and weeding out the prospects. As you already know, finding a spouse is largely a numbers game. If you can't find the types of Christian women you're compatible with, have you considered moving to a state where you will have greater odds of finding compatible woman? ...i.e. They don't call them the Bible belt states for nothing.
  3. A woman's voice

    If anyone is weird here....it's the guy with a painting of Ronald Regan, firing a sub-machine gun, while riding a velociraptor holding an American flag and an F22 flying in the background... for his profile picture ....Or perhaps if that is not considered a bit weird....then we are all a bit weird.
  4. A woman's voice

    Good question. Not to sound too corny but just like any other attractive feature, it all depends on who it's attached to. Here are a few things that come to mind... 1) When I was in high school, there was this one girl I and many other guys had a big crush on. She naturally had a low voice and she even kinda had an Adam's apple...She was so goofy and fun to be around I'm literally laughing out loud right now remembering how she would make jokes about her Adam's apple during class...and she'd even make it bob up and down lol. But no guy ever had an issue with it.. it was neither good nor bad...now if she sounded like James Erl Jones, that's a no go for me. 2) For some reason Mariah Carey and those Celtic Women kinda make me melt when I hear their voices 3) Sometimes girls with a raspy voice can be quite attractive. 4) Who does not like accents? British and Australian, Irish, French, Spanish/Latin American...et cetera
  5. Tattoos

    If they are on a guy, they can be interesting and a work of art depending on the artist who did them/the story behind the tattoo. If they are on a women, I view it as spray painting graffiti on the Mona Lisa. If I was married, tattoos here and there are totally fine but I would not want them covering her entire body...I want to see what I'm looking at...
  6. 1) It seems like you’re stating this one analogy as absolute fact. It definitely does NOT apply to every non-virgin and your analogy can also apply to virgins who have shared their love and emotional intimacy. You would have to be extremely arrogant to claim that you know the capabilities of how much love and intimacy everyone is capable of giving. The reason I said this needs to be a case by case basis is because we all don’t respond the same way to varying stimulus. That is why you have to know more about a person before you claim to know how much you’re getting. For instance, these are just a few of many other possibilities: A) There are people that can have their love and intimacy continuously restored to the exact same amount. If their relationship ends, their love and intimacy tank gets empty. When they find the next person, their tank gets topped off… Just like filling up a car, it will be the same amount every time. B ) There are also many people whose love and intimacy grows and deepens as they experience more relationships. They need these diverse experiences to get to know themselves and they use all the good things they have learned to become a much better person. They now have way more to give, not less and their pie is bigger because they got more ingredients. C) Then there are the types that have hearts like glass…if it drops and gets shattered, it can never be put back together. They will never be able to love again 2) Since you mentioned the importance of Christianity, where in the Bible does it say non-virgins are not capable of giving the same amount of love and sexual intimacy as they did during their first time…or what medical/psychological studies/research show this to be true? After Christ saw the good in a person’s heart/mind, when did He view them as only being capable of giving less or “what they have left to give.”….???? He did not view the sinful woman who greeted Him in Luke 7 that way. He did not view the thief on the cross next to Him that way. Christ did not judge them by their actions for a very specific reason, He judged them by what was in their hearts. Actions/words can be cheap and by no means can they show/tell what's in someone’s heart/mind. The Pharisees might have had good actions but some of their hearts were bad… People can show you everything you want to see just as easily as they can tell you what you want to hear. The thief’s heart spoke WAY louder than his actions and that is why Christ accepted the thief into heaven. He showed them empathy, grace, mercy and forgiveness and thank God He does not judge us by our actions alone. 3) You can’t actually prove how much of a person you’re getting any more than you can prove if someone has had consensual sex…and that’s because these things are abstract. Abstract things like love, commitment, settling et cetera usually require the other person to have faith and trust in their partner. How much of a person you get is determined by their heart/mindset towards you in the present, not their actions in the past. People lie all the time about being a virgin or hide their infidelity. If their partner’s find out the truth, it’s because the lie got exposed. If their actions determined how much they could give and/or their virginity was not abstract to the other person, then their partner’s would have known right away that they were getting less. There are even guys on this site who found out their wives lied about their virginity. 4) Sharing does not always equal taking or an automatic loss of something. That would be a really selfish way of looking at it. In many ways sharing can help others to grow and learn. If a non-virgin’s or virgin’s relationship/s made them grow into a better individual, they now have more to give to the next person…not less. I think a person has a “smaller pie” when they can’t grow from their experiences and become a bad person, they still have romantic feelings for an ex/s or when a person is closed minded to other religious, social and moral views because they think theirs are superior…that is when someone has less to offer. Well I sure hope you find a virgin husband. I get that in terms of a relationship you don’t want to be compared to other women…but it seems rather hypocritical for you to compare non-virgins to virgins and adulterers (which the last one is illogical and completely degrading to a massive number of people)…and then to make a blanketed assessment and finalization that their love and sexual intimacy is now less valuable…Virgins who have had relationships can also compare partners to ones from the past, no differently than a non-virgin. At the end of the day, there is a big difference between comparing and noticing differences. Plenty of virgins and non-virgins do not compare, that is why you have to get to know the person first. No, you’re incorrect about the virgin comment. Like I said before, I was a virgin when I met her. She was my first kiss and even the first women I romantically held hands with. You don’t get much more virgin than that especially as a 28 year old male lol. There was no issue for me, regarding her sexual history. I felt the same then as I do now. Confidence means a person has self-assurance that comes from acknowledging and appreciating their abilities, qualities, strengths and life experiences. Security means they will have a level of mental stability that is not easily disrupted, even during significant disturbances in their life. If a person knows they complete their partner, has confidence/security and then places their faith and trust in their partner, I don’t see how healthy, safe STD/Child free relationships from the past can be problematic in the present. These qualities/traits should allow them to be thankful, excited and appreciative that they found a person who currently shares their values and wants to spend the rest of their life committed to them. If one or more of these things are missing then I can definitely see how their sexual history could be a problem. Sexual exclusivity would not be the root cause to the problem, it would be the person who lacks the ability to handle something that happened in the past. And/or their lack of faith and trust they have for their partner…that is what becomes toxic and destroys a relationship. A virgin with confidence/security will not have those thoughts in the first place…especially, if they know their partner is not settling for them in anyway. They should have faith and trust in the person they are marrying…If on their wedding night they are thinking about the things they don’t like about their new bride/groom, they probably just made a colossal mistake. I can see an ex being a barrier if the other person still has feelings for them or the ex is presently involved in the person’s life and is getting prioritized first. i.e. If they are in school together, work together, share custody of a child/children et cetera. There are people who suffer from severe chemical imbalances resulting in hypersexual urges and controlling their actions and enduring a celibate life can be catastrophic on their physical and mental health. Similar chemical imbalances can cause severe depression in people or premenstrual dysphoric disorder in women. We would not tell the people suffering from depression to try harder, control yourself and if you still feel depressed then you have no control over yourself. They often need medication to help adjust the imbalance. From reading your views so far, I am assuming you don’t suffer from any of these issues, but if you could step into the shoes of someone that is afflicted with these problems and feel the agony they battle on a daily basis, I doubt you would have the views you do. I am sure you sin in other areas of your life but that certainly does not mean you lack self-control, it means you’re human. When we ask Christ for forgiveness, depending on our heart/mindset He shows us mercy, forgiveness, empathy and grace, not a lack of respect. I find it confusing that you place a high level of importance on a man being a Christian, yet the views and opinions you have expressed seem to be very different than the way Jesus viewed and interacted with the people of his time. I must be missing something. It is a great thing you are on this site. There are some great virgin guys : ) Also, there are people who were born and raised without sexual morals but if they recently found religion, they might currently share the same morals and beliefs as a you. You don’t have to have sex to know you’re settling for someone sexually. People can hide the fact they are settling because they really want something from that person and they fear losing them/it if they admit to settling. One aspect to settling means you will always want and yearn for something your partner will never be able to give. For example, if one person needs sex 2x per day but the other needs it 1x per month…someone will be settling if they get married. Or if one person wants a certain type of sex or sexual acts and the other person will not allow it…. Or if a guy is sexually attracted to women with certain features, he can still settle for a totally different type of women. Or if a women is sexually attracted to tall guys, she can still settle for a shorter nice guy… I’ve seen variations of the last one happen a lot. The type of woman you are has nothing to do with the point I was making. My point was to show how non-virgins can give all of themselves. You seem to have your mind made up in the first two comments and I wonder why you even made this post?…but then the last two statements seem to be contradictory because it’s a possibility. Sorry but you can’t be comparing non-virgins to adulterers. You say actions speak louder than words and that’s what you live by…Yet you’re not looking how different the actions are between an adulterer and a faithful person…let alone what’s going on in their heart An adulterer is in a monogamous relationship and breaks the vows/trust by literally having sex with another person/people…often times devastating their partner. Knowing this, they still chose to do it anyway. A faithful person who is in a sexually monogamous relationship has stayed loyal, committed and trustworthy to their partner and has not had devastated them by breaking their vows/trust. They could never hurt the person they are with in that way and have not broken any vows. There is no comparison or valid logic to what you’re saying because the actions, heart and/or mindset between of an adulterer is completely different. lol The fact you view non-virgins the same as adulterers makes me wonder why you even made this post lol...this is a pretty a negative, close-minded and one dimensional perspective. Yeah it's probably best you find a virgin and there are definitely guys here that would be into you... have you tried going to churches, church functions and activities?...back when i dated i really liked this one church in particular because they had an amazing singles program that always did fun stuff...like camping, volleyball, softball, picnics, target shooting, bonfires, volunteering in the local communities and a bunch of other stuff. It was good because it gave singles the chance to mingle outside of service I grew up in a highly abusive house and got beat and battered by a full grown man for 16 years and maintaining my virginity up until I was 28 was even harder than going through that. I valued it within myself because I thought it was the right thing to do. In others I viewed it as something that will be between them and God. However, when my views changed I wanted to at least have sex with someone special and not just any girl...So I waited a few years until I found my ex. Like I said before I value the women, not her virginity. The number of partners has nothing to do with valuing my own virginity. It was her amazing qualities that I really liked...and of course I found her physically attractive. Well you’re on the right website for finding a virgin man. I know there are several male members in the UK. I think there is a section on the site where you can post your location…That would be a great place for you to look…and maybe send them a friendly cheerio mate…(lol I could not help myself and I know that’s not a common British greeting…or at that is what other Brits have told me) from there hopefully they will pursue you Ok I gotcha you want to be the first and only experience. Well I have said it a few times now and I hope you find a virgin husband…you’re in the right place for it. What is the “something” that you mention? What is it? Where did you get the idea that “it” (whatever you’re referring to) is lost? I am guessing you’re referring to an abstract element of some kind. If a person completes their SO…meaning in every measurable way the SO is satisfied with them, would not change a single thing about them and wants to commit the rest of their life to them…then to that SO nothing is lost but rather found. I struggle to see how anyone could still choose to feel like something is lost when they complete another person. When a person puts the needs of their SO above their own desires, many times that can totally change their personal views on what they thought was important. Maybe that is one of several methods for experiencing real intimacy but it certainly is not the only way. God could have intended that in a world without sin and injustice but once the fall of man occurred, I don’t think God will have the same standards for imperfect beings. I think Christ set the perfect example for what real love and intimacy is. It was the abstract elements that set Him apart from everyone. His love, empathy, compassion, grace, mercy and forgiveness He showed to sinners/ those in suffering. Yeah again this is definitely a case by case basis and not an absolute. Plenty of people have normal and healthy sexual experiences without any baggage. In that case it’s only baggage if the other person makes it a problem. The same thing can apply to virgins who lack emotional exclusivity…it mostly depends on whether or not that person is over their ex and fully committed to their new partner and if that new partner has the qualities/traits to handle things from the past. I think you completely missed the point in my hypothetical example, which showed that someone’s actions alone does not determine their ability to give all of themself but rather their heart/mind. In the example I gave, despite the virgin’s actions to remain celibate, she would not be able to give all of herself because she is settling…which is the state of her heart/mind. I did not personally ask how you would view the hypothetical situation because I figured you would automatically think about your deal-barkers and miss the opportunity to see another person's view, which is why I said not to question the details. I was answering your question about what are my deal-breakers. If two non-virgins or one virgin and non-virgin wtm, they will be able to still learn what each other likes…unless they give exact step by step instructions on what to do and the exact technique…lol and that would be really boring..well at least for me…so unless that is the case, they will have to explore their partner’s body and pay attention to what they like and how they like it. We are not all carbon copies of one another and subsequently will respond differently to different people and things. Well that explains pretty much everything.
  7. Hey if I was a girl, I’d totally be into you…Although, if I was a girl, I’d probably look hideous and you would probably avoid me : p lol jk jk jk Sorry I don’t have anything profound to say but the first thing that pops into my mind is the “5 Whys” root cause analysis method used in six sigma. You can definitely use parts of that problem solving method in your personal life. It is good because it tailors solutions to the source of the problem…instead of how the problem is manifested. So maybe this method could help you find a wife...and if it does, I expect to be at the wedding and that you name your first born child after me.…those terms are non-negotiable. Ohh and Let’s call it adjusting your dream/s, not giving up. Not sure if this helps but there are plenty of older parents who are healthy and able to be active in the lives of their adult children. I’d say just focus on maintaining your health for the long run. I see this being true if one of you works a normal 8-5 and the other works some sort of a night shift. Otherwise, no matter how busy you are, you should be able set aside an hour…ideally every day for “mommy and daddy time”. Sure it will get interrupted but that should be expected. I don’t care if that means you have to wake up an hour earlier or go to bed an hour later…You have to make time for yourselves and as long as you two agree to something like this, I think you can still have a very active and satisfying sex life. She will know going into the marriage you will need it often…If you marry a women who has passion for the needs of her husband, she should not see it as pressure…but rather a gift that she is excited to share with you. Typically, a passionate person will not view being tired (within reason) as a reason to neglect the emotional or sexual needs of their partner. They will try to find ways to make something work if there are challenges in the way. (BTW if you find this unicorn woman, please capture her alive so we can take her to the lab that cloned Dolly, back in 1996.) JK. Sure there will be days when someone exhausted and that is why you take turns giving to one another. If you’re both too tired to do anything, then you can lay back, cuddle with your wife, enjoy her company and be glad you’re no longer single. However, some people can place their ENTIRE identity in becoming a parent, if that happens, your needs can get sidelined because the child is now far more important. Totally hear you on this one. I think you need to make sure the girl you’re dating will have passion for her husband’s needs…this is not the same as love or having a caring disposition. There are plenty of people that love their spouses but neglect their sexual needs. Or they have a caring attitude but they don’t have passion when addressing their spouse’s needs. My ex was a loving and caring person but one main reason I could not marry her was because the only sexual passion she had was for her needs. She never had to ask for anything because I was giving to her and when she got what she wanted, she would roll over and be done or want something else…Then I would be left high and dry…I had to ask every single time for the things I needed…she’d say fine, roll her eyes, had no fun, would rush it and try to get things over with…there was no pride in what she was doing and she did not seem to care if she was good at the things I liked. So yeah if you’re anything like me, I can assure you being treated like an unwanted chore is a total a buzz kill. Honestly, after a while sex did not even feel good. I think that’s because the mental aspect is so important…well at least for me. I don’t know if this will make sense online….but there was a time when I wondered if this is what it’s like to have sex with a prostitute. I don’t imagine prostitutes would actually have fun, be excited, eager, joyful…If that is generally true for prostitutes, then what’s the difference? They both would doing the same sexual acts (hypothetically speaking of course) with the same attitude…Is the currency the only difference? I’d have to pay a prostitute in cash and my ex with the relationship? The way I saw it was a prostitute might have the mindset of…….I have to do this because im getting paid to do a job…Ideally, I think a passionate SO should have the mindset of….I get to do this with my partner! I can’t wait see him/her and _________. I remembered seeing undercover prostitution stings on reality law enforcement tv shows and the guys always asked the undercover prostitute what and how much...lol sadly I realized how similar this seems to be…At least to me, this is why passion is so important... Waiting or not I think if you’re a good husband/father, you bet your ass you deserve a good sex life. Same goes for your wife. If you marry the unicorn I mentioned earlier lol…how will you be disappointed? I would like to think you would be elated. Look at it this way, you and your new wife will be all about each other and your friends will see that and some might be envious because they lost that spark, if they have been married for a long time.
  8. Virgins are also just as equally capable of not giving 100% in that department. This is why I believe this particular issue should be a case by case basis and not a blanketed belief…You have to truly know someone’s heart/mind to say you’re not getting all of them. However, virgin or non-virgin, if any one of these possibilities are true, then yes you would NOT be getting 100% of a man’s love or sexual intimacy…and subsequently you would be getting short changed: He is physically or sexually settling for you He is still in love with his previous partner/s A combination of 1 & 2 I am not a virgin but if I ever get married, my hypothetical wife will unequivocally know she is getting ALL 100% of me and not the short end of any stick. She would know this because my passion and love for her would be absolute, she would see this through my actions and feelings towards her, she would know and see that I am not settling for her and because I would want to commit the rest of my life to only her and no other woman. If she told me I was not giving her 100% of myself, then she is claiming to know my own heart/mind better than myself or calling me a liar...either way, both are bad. Imagine if you were in a relationship and loved your bf and really wanted him to propose to you…but he says “You don’t love me.” That would probably frustrate you because he can’t tell you…how you feel for him. The main reason is because if I ever get married, I will make sure my wife will not be physically or sexually settling for me. So to me it does not matter how many men she has slept with…Sure if she’s a virgin, then great…it is just a bonus but nothing more. I value the woman I’m with, not her virginity. I am also confident and secure with my body and that is why I would not be bothered by other men my hypothetical wife had sex with. I will hope she was treated well during her sexual past, hope she had fun and I will do my very very very best to make sure I am the best possible husband to her in the bedroom and outside the bedroom. I am not sure I understand this question…sorry I’m slow…If you’re referring to getting 100%, well you already have my 0.02 cents on that. If not and you’re referring to something else, then I’ll share some personal experience from when I was a virgin. When I met my ex, I was as virgin as they came lol, I never kissed, touched or did anything with a woman. She is my only physical, sexual and emotional experience. She on the other hand had sex with more than 60 men. We were together for about 3.5 years and I was her longest relationship. During that time, I knew she was sexually satisfied with me. We had a happy, healthy, committed and monogamous relationship. When it ended, it was very amicable. I could have married her but at the end of the day there were some major incompatibility issues, which had nothing to do with her sexual history. So the way I see it, when you are confident and secure with your body, when you know your partner loves you and is not physically or sexually settling for you, he/she accepts you as is, when you know you’re able to satisfy your partner, hopefully then you realize you have nothing to get over. Knowing this, if I chose for some reason to let my ex’s past become a problem, then at that point I would be the one creating a problem in the relationship. I would also add that knowing what constitutes as good sex and what is bad, is very helpful. It can alleviate the fears of the unknown. This is where you are lucky being a woman. Virgin or non-virgin, most men are really easy to satisfy in that department.…Once you know what his sexual needs are, just have passion and fun when addressing his needs…Enjoy and have fun when giving to him, don’t make him ask for the things you know he enjoys/needs, show him you care about being good, be happy, excited and joyful when you are giving. (obviously the same goes for him:) If you can do that, you will rock his world. So what's to get over? This is easy! I thought exclusivity means that when you’re in a relationship, it’s completely monogamous? Not an open marriage where the wife/husband can sleep with other people. In the present and future tense, they will remain exclusive and faithful to one another. Non-obvious deal-breaker: Would be if a woman is settling for me. I don’t care about how many sexual partners she has had but if she’s settling for me then she will not become my wife. Settling - To me this is when your SO has to make a sacrifice (not a compromise…massive difference) to be with you. I have noticed two criteria present when this happens to people: It is outside of the person’s ability to fulfill or meet the sacrifice their SO made. The SO will always yearn, desire and want the thing/s they sacrificed. The result of this means the person settling will usually not be happy and/or fulfilled with the relationship. Let’s say for example, I hypothetically was in a situation and had to choose between two women… lol and don’t question the details, just go along with it…They are both identical except in the following ways: - Woman A is a virgin and she loves me. However, she is not physically or sexually attracted to me. She sexually desires a completely different type of man and she knows she always will. Subsequently, she also knows her ability to orgasm or to even be sexually satisfied by me will be greatly hindered…but she is willing to make that sacrifice because she is older, single and tired of being alone…So she is willing to settle because she views me as the “nice guy”...and something is better than nothing. - Woman B has over 100 sexual partners (STD/Child free) and she too loves me. However, she would NOT be physically or sexually settling for me and subsequently knows she will be satisfied by me. She too is older, lonely and wants to find someone to be with. I will choose woman B without a shadow of a doubt...Every time. I want to be with someone who can accept me the way I am. Someone who will not have to make a sacrifice just to be with me. That is a person I will be able to satisfy and someone who will be able to give me 100%. Woman A would always wish or prefer I would be someone I can never become. Furthermore, since she made a sacrifice to be with me, there will always be something missing. Woman A is someone I struggle to see being able to give me 100% of herself, despite being a virgin. Obvious deal breakers: A women who only has passion for her sexual needs and not mine, STDs that are incurable, not over her ex’s, lots of babies, wanting a sexually open and/or a non-exclusive marriage, sexual narcissism, violent and/or painful sex, I don’t think I would have anything against role playing (never done it) but if she needs/wants it I could do it…but it can’t be anything gross and taboo, which those details would be discussed way before marriage…or infrequent sex….yeah I have an insatiable drive so I won’t be able to keep my grubby hands off of her haha. (i actually don't have grubby hands...they are clean and always have my nails clipped) Thank you for this. While I am not a victim, I have read some extremely disturbing posts from some members discussing this topic…let’s just say they displayed the least empathetic response one could have. What if God wants you to marry a non-virgin? Are you open to what He may want for you, even if that differs from what you want?....These are just rhetorical questions.
  9. Interesting topic. Does giving a complement count as flirting? If I had a GF and she told some guy he looks nice, he’s smart, he’s in shape or whatever, I would not think anything of it. I agree with most of what you said. However, I do think there are instances when you can have harmless flirting…It definitely depends on the degree of flirtation, the couple and is a case by case basis kind of thing. Personally, I never flirted with any woman when I was with my ex. So off the top of my head, if I was in a relationship and my hypothetical GF was flirting, here are two deal breaking red flags: 1) People that are narcissistic and flirt, do this because it inflates their egos. When they get attention back, they think they are amazing, better than other men/women or they are just so desirable. These people will place their egos first in the relationship. The only passion they have is for themselves and not their partner. So if my hypothetical gf was flirting because she is a narcissist, then she will never become my wife. 2) If she flirting with guys who are nothing like me and she is showing strong sexual interest, then she is most likely settling for me. Basically, I am only the nice guy and she wants something from me or she is using me to fill some void in her life…i.e. a family, money, husband, emotional security, loneliness and/or et cetera…Therefore she is willing to sacrifice some of her preferences, desires or needs even though she will always yearn for those things… If her flirtation is an indication of settlement, then she will never become my wife.
  10. Interracial Dating

    My parents are an interracial couple. One is from North Africa and the other is of Nordic European decent. I have never met anyone that is the same mix as me lol. Hmm…pertaining to Asian women…the only people I can recall suggesting something similar to this are Korean moms I have run into. I have heard from many other races that depending on the location, Hispanic women are the ones like this and they are very passionate/ selfless when in a relationship…So when I had to move to Texas for a few years for work, lol naturally I was pretty excited about that part. When I first read this, I totally agreed with it. There have been clashes and challenges in my family that seemed to be due to cultural differences. However, the more I thought about it, I think at the end of the day it comes down to your personality and character…how do you handle the cultural differences…conflict…tension? Are you a good person? I think those are the things that allows families to get along…not your racial/ethnic/cultural similarities. Heck there are families of the same cultural background that don’t get along. Growing up, one of my best friends lived in my neighborhood and his parents emigrated from Japan. So for about 15 years I got some fun exposure to the Japanese community and culture…OMG his mom made some of the best food I have ever had in my life! Man…looking back at it, I was such a little, free loading mooch… I was always over for dinner. Their parents were so polite, they were actually difficult to read. It felt like they were often thinking one thing but did not want to show it…if that makes sense. They had to be more liberal than the other Japanese parents. Anyway, interracial dating in that community was a definite NO...sons/daughters did not matter. I am not saying all Japanese were like that…just the community I was exposed to. Many of the parents within the Japanese community did not even want their children interacting with non-Japanese kids outside of school. This was only an issue with the parents, not the kids. The kids just treated me like a normal kid…so yeah lol that issue came up a few times because I have 0 Japanese DNA. However, in the past I have had several Korean mothers that I hardly knew! basically offer me their daughters…They would straight up ask me if I have a wife? Do I want a wife? Their daughters are single and then tell me all about their amazing domestic/academic skills. Yeah those Korean moms had 0 reservations about their daughters dating/marrying a non-Korean man. Talk about a stark contrast between Asian cultures. No Japanese mom I knew at that time would ever be that direct….lmao...ever! I recently heard Ben Shapiro discussing taxation…And he said that Asian American’s are the least unemployed group and they earn the highest wages…So Actually you would think their idea of marrying up would be reversed, if you’re going off of a national average. Hmm…this is very interesting and I did not know that. I wonder if the idea of Asian woman they have is influenced by porn? I guess I never asked guys that like Asian women…why they find them so attractive. I actually would have thought it's because Asian women might be more petite and that makes the guy feel more masculine, strong and/or macho or whatever. This I have definitely noticed and white women are a very close second. For me, white and Hispanic women are usually what I am attracted to. They usually seem to have the things I find attractive. Yeah I have definitely noticed this as well. However, my ex was white and she found Asian men to be the most attractive race…She talked about them all the time… But yeah movies like the hang over really do not help with the stereotyping...or that show two broke girls...(i hated that show but my ex loved watching it)
  11. Ummmm.....

    @Jasmine23 Maybe we should start a thread were everyone lists their email addresses due to the inevitable demise of this site lol
  12. Yet another post that seems to indicate the importance for you women to date/marry men who are confident/secure with their bodies, especially if you have any sexual history...Otherwise, the guy will worry he's not as pleasurable as your previous partners and this will only become toxic in the relationship....smh... Although, this is important regardless of gender because a man/woman will feel more comfortable communicating/taking on difficult topics with a partner who is confident/secure. They will know their partner is mentally strong and will be able to handle difficult situations. Goodness there seems to be lots of these posts. From what you posted, it seems like you both are wrong and have equal amounts of fault, in this very unfortunate situation. Why on earth would you marry someone who you think is lying to you...Especially when you knew full well it would be something really difficult for you to handle if she was lying? You accepted the risk and now you need to accept the consequences of that decision. And she never should have lied either...And the lie she was telling is truly appalling. Why would this be difficult for you? If a man is confident with his body, he should not be bothered by the other men his wife/gf had sex with (assuming she’s STD/child free). He will hope she was treated well during those times and be happy he is with a women who currently shares his beliefs, values and morals. Because he loves her, he will focus on being the best possible man to her and excited he found an amazing woman to spend the rest of his life with. If you were not confident and had security issues with yourself, why did you get married? That should have been addressed first and then think about marriage. It's all under personal responsibility. It is no different than having your finances in order before you get married. She waited with you right? So no problems The only thing a confident and loving man/women should feel when their partner tells them they are a rape victim is empathy, sadness, helplessness, a desire to help and et cetera. She’s the alleged victim who got raped, not you. How would you feel if she had problems with you, after you got raped? Despite the appalling fact she lied about this, your reaction and feelings to this are still extremely telling and important...As they might indicate you were not ready to get married. Can you explain what your problems were? You have every right to be mad because she lied to you, very disappointed that completely disrespected actual rape victims by using their pain, suffering and tragedy for her own agenda or frustrated that you waited and she did not. However, that should not have made you fall out of love with your wife. I find it hard to believe you actually loved her in the first place, if you could be so quick to not love her... It seems like you might have loved the idea of her virginity and not the actual woman you were dating. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ If she is sexually satisfied and happy with you, then why choose to let her previous partners bother you? This is when you should take some time to work on yourself by developing confidence (If that is the problem)…and learn to be secure with your body. If you continue to choose to let it bother you, then you’re the one making an already bad situation worse.
  13. I have been cutting my own hair for almost 20 years...lol I hated going to Great Clips for a whole list of reasons...one of which...I felt it was ridiculous having to tip them when I felt they did a really bad job...or when they would go outside for a smoke break during the middle of my hair cut...seriously who does that? I guess they felt they could get away with it because i was a kid at the time... Anyway, cutting the hair on the back of my head is a pain in the tuchas. So if my hypothetical wife would take over that, I would do any chores for her. Whatever they are, if it makes her happy, then it makes me want to do it even more ROTF! Next person on WTM who says they are struggling with depression, I will tell them to read your jokes lol and all will be well
  14. Ummmm.....

    Hmm interesting... lol and yes, Jasmine I am actually quoting you this time....So this is not too relevant but when I click on the sign in button, I always get an obnoxious pop that locks up my entire browser, warning me that I have a virus and to call some 1-800- B.S number...which is probably from Nigeria...So i would have to go into my task manager and forcibly shutdown my browser and then start it back up. I am running bitdefender + Malwarebytes and only experience this issue on WTM and never any other sites... Fortunately, firefox must have done some sort of an update and now blocks the popups...iv always wondered if the site would one day crash. Are there currently people that keep it running behind the scenes?
  15. Would you buy tampons and/or pads

    OMG this thread has some of the funniest comments For my wife, not even a problem...but the mom and sister thing....ohh lord I am pretty sure a zombie apocalypses would have to take place and even then they might not ask....if for some reason I had to...I think that is one of the few times my wife would hear me say..."I am not in the mood...can it wait" lol... I am not saying this is a valid reason but more of an explanation as to why getting them for my mom/sister would really really really really gross me out....I was raised in a culture and family that completely sexualized a women's body. So as a result getting something that is going into their _______ is just.........*shivers*...ok i can't even finish this sentence.... I am sure if i was raised where a women's body was not sexualized and more from a natural/functional perspective, then i would not have an issue with getting them for my family members. I about fell out of my chair when I read this lololololol...If the pun was intended, then absolutely hilarious....If not, then nevermind and don't look it up lol.
