Manners cost nothing yet are worth so much.

Have a lovely weekend all

Maybe I'm old fashioned and am hoping for old fashioned good manners in a new era/technology (I'm 48). I think good manners need to start here, with the first contact with someone. I think if someone wink or emails me, I should respond, certainly with a thanks and then politely state whether I would like to continue the online conversation or not. I am astounded at the number of men who ignore and use no response as a rejection. I have winked and emailed and get no response and I know they were online and logged into Millionaire since I sent them a message.

My question is: do you all vote/rate members after contacting them? Do you note whether the person responded to you or not? Do you note the person was nice but chemistry wasn't there or they were already taken? I wish more would do that. It would sort of like the controls on eBay where people want to respond and pay quickly so their ratings stay up. If we all voted and responded people might be what I consider more polite, at least here on Millionaire to keep their ratings in tack.

Is that what the ratings are for? Do I not understand the system?

i for one, DO know about the back rubs, and i do it very well i might add, and enjoy doing so for my lady, when i have one, i'm not so cool with the feet though, nice dinners, hell yeah, nothin' better than a good meal and a woman that you are crazy about!!! it's just hard for me to find a woman that can appreciate that and not take advantage of me and also a woman that won't mind doing the same for you, feel me?

nope, chivalry is not dead, i happen to like to open doors, compliment a woman on how nice she looks, tell her how nice she smells, pull out her chair for her, help my lady prepare dinner and i clean up afterwards, when making love i make sure that she's satisfied and she falls to sleep first, before i do, hell, i'll even lay in the wet spot after we make love, i heard somewhere that was a BIG problem with some of us!!!roflmao and serious at the same time!!!! i'm ghost!!!

Come on, guys cant read minds, they need to be told sometimes!!!



This part is so true to me. As I meet different women, I couldn't possibly know the different little things that each of them likes. If they flat out told me specific details (beyond the simple basics like opening a door), I would be thankful for the education.



OK Cubby...hands on the table and face forward!!! Your about to be educated!!

YES you DO need to shave that botty..and yes it would be nice if TWO could fit into the canoe...! I like massages every night...picnics on a river bank on hot summer days...adventure holidays...and laughing!! I also like guys who can stay with the programme and get past the first step!!! Is that flat out enough for you!

I think its our age. Im 51, it just seems like everybody is so usto there own little life style, once there in ther 50's and don't want to step to far outside the box! I am even getting that way a little myself. I have my nice little house, just the way I want it, and am not really willing to give it up as easily, say, as I was ten years ago. Now what I mean. I think it's even harder for men. They don't want to have to will anything to a women that they haven't been with for most of there life, like the mother of there children. WE start thinking to hard the older we get sometimes. Not as willing to take those risks. Anyway, thats my opinion. Good Luck to you.
