I don't think it's wrong to ask what you do for a living... it's just part of getting to know about someone. I do agree that asking about how much you make crosses the line until you get more serious. So... don't think it strange for a woman to ask what you do... most of us at least want a man that has a job. lol

i agree with you bubs... you can't take the site too seriously... it really is the internet... anything goes and who really knows what is going on with who, where and why?... i think that a lot of us are in hopes of maybe by chance meeting that person of quality, that someone significant... but my life really takes place outside this box... i really do enjoy this site... and i do look forward to seeing all of you in the forums... i feel that if i had an issue of a "large magnitude" :) this would be the place to discuss it... i feel i would be heard and most would understand exactly what the issue at hand entails.. for the most part i think most everyone here is in great support of one another and the humor here just flows... i seriously fall out over some of these posts!... i love it..
My motives?...Talking to new people, having a giggle, which I certainly have done.
Yeah, the possibility of meeting someone special has got to be part of it, I think, if you dont take the whole internet dating thing too seriously, then you can have fun, meet interesting people ( I have certainly done that) LOL
Then its a good thing, I just dont pon all my hopes n dreams on any site...But, I am still hoping!!!
Great question... and if we'll be honest, we might get some insight into ourselves.
Me... I think I was looking for someone just to accept me as me... so that I didn't constantly feel like I had to be something I'm not. I wanted someone that could love me, take care of me (no, not financially... emotionally), be available when I'm so lonely I can't stand it anymore.
What have I found? A couple wonderful men that seem a million miles away. I talk on the phone or get an email occasionally, but my heart is so lonely I can't stand it sometimes. I'm trying to figure out how to get past that feeling since it seems I can't find a man locally that I can be with regularly, but it's so hard.
At first, the phone calls and emails are fun and exciting, but after awhile... it's just not enough. I want an arm around me, a hug, a kiss, a conversation when he's looking in my eyes and sees my emotions behind my words.
So... to answer your question... I really did start out wanting the 'real deal', but have resigned myself to just enjoying the posts and expecting nothing more.
