    okay so I'm 18, yes but i've dated quite a bit.. and i'm sooo completely tired of all these GQ men, and metrosexuals.. where are all the guys that want me to grab them a beer while they watch the game? hell, where are the guys that just watch the game? I'll even sit down the watch the game with(but thats because i actually want to)
    I'm pretty sure a manly man is extinct

    Okay, I hate rain on everyone's parade, but I cannot believe no one has yet asked the $64k question: Just what is a 'manly man', HOFAH?

    If a 'manly man' means someone who wants you to fetch his beer while he watches sports, then you may want to be careful of what you ask for, as you may very well get that and a whole lot of other traits you may not find so attractive over time.

    If what you mean is you prefer the more "traditional" male/female roles, then that may be somewhat different.
    Does the traditional view of "traditional" even apply when so many people have not lived the 'traditional' life? You still have to make a conscious decision that his desires, goals, dreams and household rules are more important than your own.

    You don't say the age range of men you've dated. If you're staying within 5-7 yrs of your age, perhaps you should give some of those men a little break. They, like you, are still in a growing
    stage.

    Now, the guy who knocks you over to get to the mirror or takes longer than you to get dressed - RUN!

    smiles

    lets see... my definition of a "manly man" like i said.. a man who enjoy's his sports.. works on the cars on the weekend, likes getting dirty, the list can go on, sunshine was pretty dead on...

    And no i'm not looking for the guy that's a sexist pig... you know the traditional 40's man..thinks my only place is in the kitchen

    the whole thing on the age.. i've been known to date up to 10 yrs older then me.. so i think they would be a bit 'mature" by the time they are 28

    so coming to a conclusion.. the only guys that i have dated are just the GQ guys that think all I want are expensive dinners and nice jewlery (which arent bad) but I want a guy who i can take to a baseball game, drink a beer with, and actually have him understand the game.. it's rediculous how much guys have come unglued from "america's favorite past time"

    *shrugs*

    That helps better define what 'manly man' means to you, HOFAH, and that's really what I was looking for.

    Maybe you should cosider moving to the midwest. Having lived in CA, I know the men there are a unique breed and many who are self-centered and focused on how they look, what they have, what they're going to have, etc. Unless they came from somewhere else, then they're not quite as bad. Midwest guys are, in general, more earthy.

    Hey, check out my son (he's in a pic in my profile). He's 22, has most of the characteristics you're looking for (he doesn't labor with his hands, though)but loves his sports, often takes his dates to sporting events (if they know what's the game's about), hanging out with friends to shoot pool. Good young man, and honestly not just cuz I'm his mother!

    your son is cute!!! if you can message me, and i'll give you my email

    He is a cutie and a fine young man. His dad still lives in San Jose and in fact was just out there recently. He was born in CA but raised here. Has that special blend....oh, there I go again - sorry! But now I'm thinking...oh my gosh, aren't you officially 'jail bait' for him since he's over 21?! I'll be in touch...

    So red... i emailed your son, i'd say about a week ago... no response =/ anything on your end?

    In fact, I just asked him the other day if he'd heard from you and he said he had not. Send me another note with your e-mail address.....simple obstacle!

    My God Katie, you've been out with some rough ones, did they leave the toilet seat up , drop dirty washing on the floor, squeeze the toothpaste from the top.
    There are guys out there who commit any of these heinous crimes, but are still bad' boys


    I didn't say I dated more than ONE! Only a masochist (sorry Gem) would keep going back to the same type! And I'm talking about guys who put the toilet seat DOWN ... because they "basted" the ring with their uric emissions! I'm talking about men who THROW their dirty laundry (once they finally take it off) and IT STICKS TO THE WALL! I'm talking about the kind of guys who - (never MIND the toothpaste) squeeze a volcano simmering on their cheek and leave THAT on the bathroom mirror!

    Most of these men were just buddies, guys I hung out with in my groups, actually mostly pilots in the late 80's and EMS guys in the 90's. Good friends to go partying or camping with, but nobody I'd ever want to date, despite their good looks, because I knew what pigs they were. And I mean that in a sisterly, "punch in the arm" way.

    And I understand farting and belching is a bodily function faux pas that sometimes can't be helped ... but I admire a man who, when he's alone with a woman, doesn't do it in bed and then pull the sheets over her head so she is trapped in there with it. Ha ha. Big laugh.

    Farting and belching are a male bonding thing. Keep it amongst yourselves. LOL

    Luv ya!

    Happy Birthday lovely lady!

    lol...I wouldn't have thought of chrome, but that would be cool - I can just whack those men who are lucky enough to guess my real age. Or hey, trip the good one and drag them home, tie them up....lolol Make it a bright color. And thanks for the happy thought, I had a wonderful birthday. More fun to come this weekend - boat's coming out of storage and it is going to be 80 here!

    But, Katiegirl, farting and belching are funny, aren't they? I think, in fact, that they are the highest form of humor.

    Your post also confirms my position. You want a conditional manly man, which is contradictory.

    Right. I was kidding around, and you KNOW it. LOL

    I want to make it perfectly clear to any man who may be wondering, though.

    I want a confident, successful man who can cut loose from the office once in a while and hang with me, who has a sense of humour or is at least mildly amusing and appreciates MY sense of humour. And I want an adventurous, chivalrous nice guy who isn't a beer-swilling, ribs-devouring, farting, disrespectful, slovenly wuss.

    If that's an "unconditional manly man," then okay. That's what I'm looking for.

    I especially DON'T want anything to do with a bad boy. If being a "bad boy" means he plays hard to get or sulks or treats me bad ... he can take a hike! I don't have time to waste on a guy who's going to make me sad all the time and then take off on me! Been there, done that! GOT THE T-SHIRT!

    I'm so looking forward to sharing life with a man who goes places with me and cooks with me, rents movies, takes me out, plans getaways and sincerely cares about me.

    If he's out there, reading my posts, and he thinks I'm intriguing ... hurry up! Contact me now! I'm beating them away from my door waitng for you!

    LOL

    Oh my, my dentist is going to love you for that! Aren't you tired of my photo? I am tired of looking at it.

    By the way, any woman who gets you as a mother-in-law is lucky. Not only gets a great guy, but as a by-product, a Mom like you, priceless.

    Speaking of priceless, have you put your bids in at the romance auction? Robtest is on sale this week!

    lol...obviously not, but I do know what you mean - I'm tired of my pic too....Need a haircut then maybe a new pic...

    Gosh, you just made me blush! Thank you. That is a priceless compliment.

    Speaking of which, I just put my bid(s) in last night. I hate to shop, but who can resist a sale?!

    Hey Rob, it's not really pandering, it's a different approach to match-making (lol...the way we can rationalize,huh?). Yea, money can't buy love, but it can buy a little pleasure, yes?

    This one of my favorite topics. The specific question is about "manly men", but the real question being asked is why can't I find someone who has all the dangerous manly qualities I like, except that he is honest, loyal, considerate, faithful and smells good. Some desires are just mutually exclusive. Manly men are usually that way because they are not self - examining people. They are forces of nature. This self sufficiency can come across as cruelty. The lack of self reflection can come off as narrowmindedness. He might persue his manly persuits at the expense of the relationship. After rebuilding the 1968 Charger, playing poker with the boys, going hunting in Canada, going to the drag races and hanging out at Diamond Girls with Cheyenne and Savanah, there may not be much room for Foreign films and Sushi.

    THe reality is that every woman wants a bad boy so that they can tame him But then he won't be a bad boy anymore , and you will lose interest.

    Don't worry. We men have just as illogical fantasies.


    Lombard, I so do not want a "bad boy." What I DO want is a fun, confident, adventurous, self-assured man and I have met them. They DO exist! They're attractive, (to me) nice, thoughtful and ... "fragrant."

    I'm not into foreign films and chick flicks. I hate raw fish, while I simultaneously don't mind if a man is into auto mechanics, poker, fishing - because hunting is barbaric, and so on. I just want men who don't commit the following unforgiveable sins:

    - Farting or belching in front of women and thinking it's funny,

    - Teaching young boys to fart and belch in front of women because it's funny,

    - Leaving tons of stuble in their bathroom sinks,

    - Not putting real toilet paper on the the bathroom tissue roller,

    - wearing socks with sandals,

    - believing, with every fiber of their being, that porn is real and is how we really want sex,

    - making dinner if they're gonna use every bloody pot and pan in the house.

    - backwashing into the milk carton,

    That's about it! I'm sure there's others but these'll do for now.

    Oh. The reason I'm not with an adventurous guy now? They're married already!

    Tell us some of your illogical fantasies and we'll tell you if it's possible to turn fantasy into reality.

    Search for "age of consent CA" and look for the "ageofconsent" place...

    CALIFORNIA
    PENAL CODE
    SECTION 261-269


    261.5. (a) Unlawful sexual intercourse is an act of sexual intercourse accomplished with a person who is not the spouse of the perpetrator, if the person is a minor.

    For the purposes of this section, a "minor" is a person under the age of 18 years and an "adult" is a person
    who is at least 18 years of age.

    (b) Any person who engages in an act of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor who is not more than three years
    older or three years younger than the perpetrator, is guilty of a misdemeanor.
