Opening lines... Message Board

    Here's one for you, who stretches the truth the most during a relationship, the female or male? Is this a good opening line whilst pursuing the other half? Actually there are folks out there that offer lessons on how to attract the opposite sex. Anybody ever try taking those lessons?

    Personally I think that they would be a waste of time for the majority of the population as you start off the relationship by living a lie but for some they might just work...

    Who colors their "truths" more? Um, MEN. Big-Fish stories, etc.

    I think women are often TOO honest and wayyyyyyyyyyy too open about their insecurities/idiosyncracies too early in the relationship, and it scares men off.

    What opening line works best? How about . . . "Hello, my name is . . . .?" Save the "lines" for fishing!



    I agree! In my practice, I see many women who are really frustrated with the man after the "romancing" is over (typically pretty quick after they have [caught their prey!!]). Not trying to be cynical, but many men do seem to have the strange notion that they have to present themselves as something they're not, or embellish their accomplishments in order to "woo" a woman. Once they've "hooked their partner" they revert back to who they really are. Sounds almost like hunting instead of developing a relationship. Dr. R

    I hateeeeeeeeeee when they do this...why oh why do they?


    I've got a good idea, but it's toooooo long for this section!!! Ask me in Columbus . . . you are going aren't you? Since you began picking on me (yeah, I like it . . . but don't tell anyone), I'm looking forward to get the fur flying when we all meet!! Yeah baby!!

    Hmm Cat Lady what you say is very true if you start off a relationship based on a lie then the chances of failure are greater as you will eventually be found out. The best motto for me is "what you see is what you get" as for the glass of wine let me buy you a bottle. lol.

    Here's another one for you, the 17th World Congress of Sexology is taking place in Montreal at the present time. And no I haven't attended nor do I have any desire to do so as it's just a matter of interest because of the craziness of the headline, concept and it's a slow hot day. Their opening line, designer vagin*s and a society that worships the phallus, so I guess size does matter..

    IMHO no matter how many surgeries that you have done unless you correct the underlying problems associated with this type of surgery, why bother unless you're in the porn industry. However it is a highly popular surgery never the less, costing anywhere from $3000 to $7000, money that I would spend on travelling instead.. Hmm I seem to have gotten off topic here, well what the heck..

    Did I miss something here?

    According to an old Dilbert cartoon, where he asked his computer what the best chat-up line in the world was, his computer told him:

    "Hi, I'm Mel Gibson. Did you just see a dingo dog go past with my shirt?"

    LOL Lordy

    I too, have no trouble striking up a conversation with anybody.

    I was on the subway today and I was sitting beside a hot guy. Across from us was a man who was looking to his left and making the kissing noise. Both of us were looking down and both of us raised our eyes only, to look at the man.

    The man leaned forward and started saying, "Nice girl! Nice girl!" and suddenly the girl he was saying it too moved her hand to reveal a little round fluffy white puppy sitting in her lap.

    The guy and I just looked at each other and burst out laughing. Then we talked about dumbas*s things we've seen on the subway before and had a great conversation before I had to get off at Bloor and Yonge.

    During the day, I travel around town lots, from client to meeting to shopping mission. I often see attractive men and have no trouble flirting with them in a humorous way.

    It's fun, it's harmless, and always has the chance of leading somewhere!

    Never have taken the classes of any sorts...never had a problem w/meeting male nor female, if Im out amongst friends, especially after a glass of wine...Everyone is my friend! Alot of men find that attractive, and it makes you more approachable....
    My advice to anyone...For Gods sake...Please please just be yourself! It will get you further in life!
