I'm sadly just realising that there's a great deal of men out there only interested in an empty vessel. That lots of men really aren't remotely interested in who women are but just whether they can have a satisfactory wank. Or is it just my experience? I thinks it's time for me to come off.

I think (somewhat depressingly) that's a fair summary of the majority of men who OD.

You will get lots of smug marrieds telling you how easy it is to find a wonderful man online, how their DH was their 3rd ever date, blah blah. They are the EXCEPTION. Most people either do it for a few months, get disillusioned and give up, or end up plugging away at it for years before they meet anyone even half decent.

Give it a break for a while if you feel like it, and come back to it. You may of course meet someone in RL in the meantime and not need to!

Velvet, too true. Actually, just as I posted this very depressing post my email pinged and it was my long standing pen pal who reminded me that there are definitely some lovely men in the planet too. smile I definitely need a break. I'm taking my profile off.

Agree Oops, and Velvet. And the "satisfactory wank" thing, I quite agree - both literally <ick> and metaphorically. I have lost a lot of respect for men in the last few years I'm afraid, but OTOH I don't waste my energy.
