  • I date to scheme men out of money. Where is that option? ;D

    In all honesty, it's F and G. I don't really care about getting married though I'm sure it would be nice.

  • I voted G. I really do truly want to find someone who can be a life partner for me. I want to get married, even though that seems to be a fading dream.

    • Don't EVER give up on romance. We are not hopeless romantics! We are HOPEFUL romantics!

    • Haha Thanks! I'm really trying. But it's really hard. I've had so many bad experiences and it just seems like whenever I meet a guy who I really like, he's had bad experiences and is too scared to date me or just thinks it's easier to not date at all :( Makes me sad that I didn't meet him sooner to spare him some heart ache. I wear my heart on my sleeve, I'm really nice to people and I care deeply about other people.

      I just hope I can find someone who will care as much for me as I do them someday!

    • I am 61 years old, got divorced a year ago, and I have found a girlfriend who is absolutely wonderful. You are never too old to find love!

  • G :) don't see the point in dating for any other reason!

  • Because it's fun. I like girls. Girls like me.
    If I find the girl of my dreams that's just a side benefit.

    The goal is to enjoy my life and to find others who can enrich my life and likewise I enrich theirs. I don't want a woman to become my life. I wish to share my life and if the right woman comes along, create a better one with her.

    Dating with no intention of marriage seems pointless

  • If I were dating it would be B and E, and I'd prefer long term. I guess. With regards to B, it's more the emotional intimacy then 'someone to hang out with'/
