    I'm also a member on a dating site. They periodically list different dating do's and don'ts some of which seem common sense others of which I find laughable.

    What do you say men, are any of these tips worth remembering for a single gal?

    Moretheless accurate, but:

    A girl speaking openly about sex risks to scare him or to be labelled as "easy", so she would not attract a guy interested in a relationship.

    Food: a pub is totally not romantic if you are over 16!

    Flirt tips: al can be reassumed in "show some intrest for him, show that you care, but don't overcome".

    Some of that can be considered true for myself. Honestly I don't like dating so the rent a movie and stay in is something I tend to do alot. I've never taken a scenic drive. I probably never will unless on the way to do something else.

    The convos are damn near perfect. Except talking about what I do for a living. I don't mind talking about it at all.

    I think it all depends on the kind of person you are, but for me it's like this:

    Men’s Top Ten Favorite Conversation Topics
    1. Sex > after a few dates, when I know her better and feel at ease and relaxed being with her
    2. Romantic fantasies > okay
    3. Hobbies/interests in general > okay but I would put this lower
    4. Hopes and aspirations > not really
    5. Music > yes!
    6. Dreams > not really
    7. Movies > yes!
    8. Entertainment > yes!
    9. Vacations > yes!
    10. Travel > yes!

    > So I guess I don't agree with the top three. But what I would add to the top three is talking about relationships, love, men and women in general. Not past relationships! That comes in later when you know each other better.

    Top Ten Least Favorite Conversation Topics
    1. Past relationships > in the beginning, true
    2. Other dates > true
    3. Celebrities > false
    4. Religion > true
    5. Politics > absolutely
    6. Antiques > true
    7. Money > true
    8. Fashion > definitely NOT true, I'm very interested in fashion
    9. Gardening > very true
    10. Marriage > absolutely

    Men’s Top Ten Date Picks

    7. Stay in and rent a movie
    8. Bowling or Playing Pool
    9. Live music
    10. Comedy Club

    > I agree with the top 7. 8, 9 and 10 are a no-go for me.

    > these things don't matter at all :smile:

    Men’s Top Ten Favorite Ways to Have Someone Flirt with Them

    4. Sends him special/cute email messages > true
    5. Shares jokes or amusing anecdotes with him > true, but not necessary
    6. Compliments him on his screen name, attitude, personality and appearance > definitely, this has to be on nr.1 for me
    7. Makes an effort to contact him in some form most every day > definitely, put this on nr.2
    8. Sends instant messages when he and you are online at the same time > true, but not necessary
    9. Discusses seriously the traits he desires in a partner > true
    10. Uses suggestive language in online conversations with him > definitely

    > So in this list 6-7-9-10 is for me 1-2-3-4 :wink:

    [quote=invisibleman;1357880](NJQT, What you can't just go to a straight club and meet men in person? :rolleyes:)

    :rofl: Do you seriously think I haven't tried that numerous times? :confused: I did that from about age 19-30 in 4 different states. I don't think I know anybody who met more than a fling at a night club or bar.
