Hi. Long time lurker here and occasional poster from a few threads ago.
The 'Bike' comment. Not nice. This is a female orientated site but we have welcomed men on here yet some people think it's ok to come on and basically say it's ok for men to sow their seed but women may be conceived as bikes....well that's not nice. The women on here have explained why they would rather DTD sooner rather than later. There are good reasons for that.

But Rioux so what if she's dating or sleeping around? Those lines can get blurred you know..... As Robin thicke and Miley would say!

Just marking my place. Nothing much to report. No 3rd date arranged as yet but hopefully soon.

Blossom, he sounds very full on. Have you been replying to his messages?

AtSea1979 Mon 15-Dec-14 22:43:45

Checking in. Quite terrified really. Could anyone point me in the direction of a friendly online site to wean me back in to dating.
I have the Tinder app but I'm not sure that's the right place to find a genuine date.

Men and women are totally different species, will not see things the same. That's why its good to have a male opinion, which we may not always agree with but gives us women a little insight into the male attitude towards women.
I wish I could of had more lovers, and it is down to what a women can handle emotionally when it comes to casual sex. It seems unfair to have bodies that are designed for pleasure but conditioning that makes us feel bad if we over do it, sleep around. What number of sexual partners can a woman have that's too much and tipping onto being a slag (word I hate).
I didn't think anyone used the term local bike anymore.
Anyway, I'm still clueless and
I spent 12 yrs married to a man. I also tend to overthink everything anyway.

Gotta I wouldnt worry about ow many partners someone's had as long as they treat you well that's all that important

Magicman1 Mon 15-Dec-14 23:05:37

Found olinre dating quite depressing thus far I'm 38 what age range should I look at do you think?

AtSea1979 Mon 15-Dec-14 23:10:21

35 seems like a good age grin

TortillasAndChocolate Mon 15-Dec-14 23:11:52

I tend to look between around 5 years younger and 5 years older. But just depends how you feel about bigger age gaps.

TortillasAndChocolate Mon 15-Dec-14 23:12:09

At sea grin

AtSea1979 Mon 15-Dec-14 23:17:27

I tend to look a couple of years younger and about 8 years older. But it's def personal choice.

Magicman1 Mon 15-Dec-14 23:19:38

Thanks guys handy to know how you ladies think too

Magicman1 Mon 15-Dec-14 23:20:49

35 is a good age at sea smile

AtSea1979 Mon 15-Dec-14 23:21:37

Haha so which websites should I look?

Magicman1 Mon 15-Dec-14 23:29:24

Most of them are depressing to be honest I only use the free ones at the moment

AtSea1979 Mon 15-Dec-14 23:40:02

Depressing in what way?
