These are comments by EPID and Soullite on the post “Ten Signs She Might Not Be ‘The One’“.
“Wow, spot on article. I found somebody I thought was ‘the one,’ but she miserably and constantly failed on points 7 (You Are Constantly Annoyed/Frustrated/Depressed), 8 (She Is Unpredictable, Quick To Anger/Sadness/Exuberance ) and 10 (She Would Make a Terrible Mom), and often failed 4 (She Never Introduces You) and 5 (She Never Pays).
“Most importantly—and perhaps this should be #1 on the list—not only did she not accept me for me, but flat out told me ‘your approach to life is entirely wrong. You should live your life like I live mine.’ Arrogant.
“But, in retrospect, perhaps the facts that she’d had a previous three day marriage, a series of failed relationships (she admitted cheating on every man she ever dated), a history of emotional abuse, the multiple medications she took daily, and the three cats she lived alone with should have tipped me off. But, at least the sex was good. Good riddance!”
“Since men are required to pay (not because of chivalry, but because women have collectively made not adhering to this ‘tradition’ a deal-breaker, and the groups that usually call out archaic behavior have apparently decided that men have it coming, or whatever) first dates should be simple, quick and cheap.
“Never anything but drinks or coffee until you know the relationship is worth the investment. Don’t be a sucker, guys. Dinner is for people you already know that you want to lay out $100+ and 2 hours of your time on.
“If she isn’t willing to go that route, you shouldn’t be willing to date her. If she really just wants to get to know you, she won’t care what you were doing together. If she does care, then it’s not really you she’s after.”
