I started this topic in other message boards and got varied and mostly amusing results.. what say you put your 2 cents worth..or considering the type of site this is.. your $2,000,000 worth..

Some years ago someone said.. 'where have all the good men gone, where are all the gods.. where's the street wise Hercule's, to fight against the odds, isn't there a white-knight upon a fiery stead... '.. If your like me and can't forget the 80's no matter how hard you try you'll remember that song.. so tell me.. where are they? do they exist? have you found one or a couple? are you one of those elusive 'good men'.. lets hear your thoughts people..

Lombard...OUCH! A little cynical sounding don't you think?


Doesn't sound too cynical to me... It is actually probably a fairly common male fantasy!!!! I guess a little chocolate would only sweeten the deal. ROFLMAO...

I like Gemini's concept of a stash of good men. Where would you keep them? A shoebox? In a baggie? Do you have to replenish your stash from your connection every now and again? Do you pass them around in a circle when you use them?


LOL Lombard!!! I wouldn't put him anywhere near my stash of chocolate!! (For the record, I am a chocoholic. What can I say? Some women like shoes; I like chocolate!) Besides, the 8 inch-heeled "F" me pumps have to come off eventually; otherwise, somebody might get hurt, and it's not usually the wearer. LOL Chocolate, however, has multiple uses. ;-)

LOL

Gem

Right, Gem, if we had a stash of good men I wouldn't be here but in the spirit of the thought, I think I'd keep them in one of my music/jewelry boxes (I have a collection) as they are precious because they were given to me from loved ones each with special meaning. The other place would be in my lingerie draw since that's also one of my favorite things. Unfortunately, men probably aren't going to fit in either of those places!

I'm a chocoholic too, Gem. I would though, gladly share my chocolate with that good man and undoubtedly in one of the many creative ways you've inferred!

tincan,

WHAT ARE YOU SAYING??? Mayo would make it a lot more interesting!!! LMAO!!!


Mayo spoils too quickly with heat. Don't want to catch food poisoning. Now honey might make an interesting sandwich...

You're only going to get the answer you want from a woman who already has a good man.

Here's the problem. If we are a good man, and we tell you where there are other good men, then we are directing you to our own competition. Of course, we could be lying and misdirecting your attention to bad men, but then we would no longer be good men.

Alternatively, we might not be interested in you and then direct you to other good men, but your would be insulted. You would think "If he was really a good man, he would either have been interested in me or at least have been honest enough to tell me he wasn't interested."

So, you see, only bad men or men not interested in you will tell you where good men are, and you can't trust them.

Now, you could ask a woman where the good men are, but do you really think she's going to let you in on her little secret?

I happen to love those things that make you go, "hmmmm...." and you caused a smile with the message!

If a woman knows where the good men are there are those who will share and those who will not.

Actually, I would not be insulted by a man who I believe is a "good one" who pointed me to other good man/men. All good men are not going to be a match for me either, so no offense taken. You seem to be a 'good one'....know of any who might be a good match for me?! Of course you could mis-direct me, but I trust my instincts enough to figure it out very quickly...

You're right katie, rob & devo are fun on the forums, like cubby & others used to be on here too. Like myself, it took them a little time to get there comfort level to be more casual and loose with everyone. Loose in a non-sexual way of course. :-)


Or loose in a verbal-diarrhea way? LOL

Katie I would never, ever think of you in this way. BUT, can you point out one or two ladies on MM that fits this description. Bob & myself would much appreciate it. LMAO

-D.


You two are "perfectly" incorrigible!
lol


Aaaaahhhh...but you love it and you know it! lol


I love the fun and the witty play on words and I appreciate intelligent, humorous banter. Don't you Sharon? I'm glad Rob and Devo are as funny as Cubbie and Mel, who never came back. (but in different ways)

I'm starting to see a pattern in one of the MM members who is starting to show the true colours of a faker. I'm just gonna watch a little longer and see. Wee ... have you sniffed the faker yet?

Nice smile, Emilio....
How can you laugh at a woman who searches for her 'perfect' man since based on your comment, you're looking for a 'perfect' woman?

Someone describe 'perfect' and 'good' to the degree that we can all agree. If I were a betting woman, I'd say we could not come to a concensus. And that's because, and as it should be, that we define those for what works (or what we believe will) work for ourself.
Probably the only thing we could all agree on is that no one is perfect.

Are women really looking for "GOOD" men. Isn't it so very true that most women (especially the good looking, sexy women), are attracted to the "Bad Boy" guys. Well if you are truly looking for the "GOOD MEN" then why don't you open your heart and let one in, instead of falling for the first "Tatooed Rocker Dude" that gives you the Nod after just puuuuking backstage from his Pill Poppers and Jack Daniels Chaser... Or the first flash of cash, thinking it's all going to be spent on you.
Seriously, You want a "Good Man", then go where the Good Men are. Take a look at your meeting places and try meeting someone where you go to do what you enjoy most. We're not at the bars, we're not at the clubs and we're not offering exotic trips (that are ultimately in exchange for sex)! We're at home taking care of our businesses, our families and hoping for maybe a chance to meet a "Good Girl" that will not look at us with insult because we had the courage to ask them for their number or a date.
So, I ask then in reply as a "Good Man" .. "Where have all the Good WOMEN gone".

You do soumd a little bitter, exec.
Some women do have that attraction to the charming 'bad boy', just as some men have that attraction to the women who are 'eye candy' and little substance. Make enough of the same choices with the same ending and either you learn and progress (if more than either is what you really want) and then there are others who never take the time to learn from their past relationships. This is not a gender specific issue. So what has your pattern been and is it getting you what you want? It is almost always the choices in 'mates' that is the problem, not the location.

I believe there are good people - again, both men and women - everywhere. Including a bar. I'm a good person and enjoy going to a bar. Music, people, a few cocktails, dancing, laughing....and others who are doing the same. You're a good person and are you saying you never go to a bar? Most people still don't date someone with whom they work, so that's a limitation. And unless you're into incest, then hanging around your family isn't a good place to meet a 'mate'. So one has to move out of those boxes to meet people. Of course, bars are not the only option. Again, you can meet them everywhere you go. "They" say do what you enjoy and you're most likely to find at least someone who has compatible interests. Actually, that's one of the reasons I took up golf. It's social, outdoors and the men-to-women ratio is high (although that is changing too). If you have young children, school functions - God knows there's a ton of other single parents - will have like-minded people.

The difficulty factors are in the screening (aka getting to know, then dating) process. What makes someone not good for one could be someone else's gem. It's about compatibility, being on the same page at the same time.

As for the women who look at you with insult when you approach them, I think one of a couple of things are contributors: Eiter you're not choosing the so-called "good" woman or maybe your approach didn't work on her. But then my tendency is usually to look within before placing the problem on the other.

THIS ONE IS NICE

floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

EJ ... this was a provocative, antagonistic, innacurate, stereotyping, rude ... and absolutely uncalled for statement, unless you're looking for a fight.

I have never, in my entire life, gone for a freaking pill-popping, boozing rocker .... in my LIFE, let alone even met one! We aren't skanks on MM!

And as for the "cash" reference ... that was insulting and disrespectful to all the women on here. What were you thinking?

I don't know what dating sites you've been lurking in but the women on THIS site are definitely NOT the correct target audience for your rant!

And what are you suggesting? That instead of looking for good men in these bars, clubs and exotic trips ... we should go to your home? That's the only example you've given for where to find "good men like you."

Sorry if I sound abrasive, but I think you should think before you post next time. You aren't making yourself seem very attractive or desireable with that bad 'tude.

Now, if you were popping pills, chugging Jack Daniels chasers and puuuuuking all night before you wrote your post ... I think you could be forgiven. LOL

That's a load of bunk, EJ.

(does anyone want to analyse whether bunk comes in solid loads or barrels of liquified bunk?) LOL

Women do NOT go for the bad boys! It just turns out that the bad boys are confident and sure of themselves and charm our hearts away, SOMETIMES! But what women mistake for confidence and surity is really cockiness and apathy.

We've been fooled by the best of them, men who were confident, sure of themselves, charming, humorous, flattering, accomodating, romantic, chivalrous ... and then when you fall for them like a ton of bricks they dump you like a ton of bricks and move on to the next poor woman who believes their BS. AND THEY DON'T EVEN FEEL BAD DOING IT!!

So ... what can the good guys do to steal the good women away from these jerks? Be confident, sure of yourself, charming, humorous, flattering, accomodating, romantic, chivalrous and after we fall for you like a ton of bricks ... don't be stupid. Hang onto us for dear life.

There's the monumental difference between the two extremes.

Luv yuh all.
