He's right as he can be! Women just want a free lunch and someone to listen to them complain about other women.

Well...Like my Pappy use to say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?"

Milk is nice but what happens when you want a hot juicy tube steak in your mouth?

Nevermind man on man love shouldnt be spoke of and I dont see gay marriage being legal until another Clinton takes office!

He left out the two most important uses for a husband: Lawn care and vehicle maintenance!

Women should insist on a comittment before they give themselves away. If the guy won't commit, he's not worth your trouble.

He's excactly right. I've yet to meet a woman who had enough brains to hold a 5 minute conversation, but every single one of them wanted to get married inside of six months. Single mothers are the worst. I've made some great life decisions, and not getting someone pregnant was one. Why should we pay for someone else's mistake, especially since single mothers' motives can be hard to determine. 90% of the women I run into have at least one child from a previous marriage or "accident". They're now all searching for a meal ticket and have nothing to offer a man.

Insist on committment? What do women really have to offer? I've yet to meet one worthwhile. There's more to life than this week's American Idol and getting your hair color changed.

I take offense to your generalization re: single women with children. A- I could turn circles around you in conversation
B-I never sold my soul for an a-hole (rich or not)although I can agree some what, that a lot of girls would sell their soul for any sub human. Just don't generalize!, C-All kids grow up, and some decent men are willing to commit to a women with a chid. Now, my son is a man, graduating from Purdue. D-Because I lived on my own and struggled, I think when I did marry for love (and not the dangling steak that many losers taunt you with), we ended up rich. So, you wonder.....was I blessed for a reason! Probably. I married a brain, not a wallet. I married for love, not a meal. And, we made our own beautiful family. So, sit there by yourself, with your pitiful thoughts re: women, and hopefully, you will be sitting alone in your wheel chair with no one willing to push you. And sadder than that. You could have been a positive in a childs life. But obviously, that would never be possible. You don't have a heart/soul to give.

And, just to clarify, I did not have an illegitimate child. Not that you still couldn't embrace and love a child like your own. Dad, or no dad.

Sounds like you have been looking for love in all the wrong places! And, with all the wrong bimbo's! Maybe it is who you are attracted to that is the problem.

I have always found it sad that women don't embrace other women. They are jealous, mean, hard to get to know, unless you are as fake as they are. So, why do mean allow them to act that way. Men should take a stand. And say.....act like a b......and I am not interested in being with you. Maybe they would learn to be nicer to other women.

My husband finds me quite useful when I cut our 2 acres and plant gorgeous flowers every spring and summer. He also likes, my services re: running children every where and keeping schedules straight. He loves my house keeping FREE services for our 7,000 sq ft house, as well as a partner who loves to eat the same food as him, loves the same music as him, and loves to have sex with him. Any thing wrong with that?

oh yeah, and loves the same MOVIES as him....and, I forgot, I am more like a FIRST 48,Cane, Moonlight, CSI, NCIS, cop show lover,action adventure lover, not some gay shows like American Idol. I will say though......Dancing with the Stars is quite good. Eye candy for guys/gals. We saw them the other night LIVE and it was a blast! We saw the 500 race car driver (would attempt to spell his name, but would then be another stupid girl who can't spell) and living in Indy, well, it was pretty fun! Any way, get over your bitterness, and find a NICE girl.

You should probably try the gay bars. Might suit you better.

If you want to meet a woman you have things in common with, go to a sports bar and start chatting about the teams with her.

I met my lady that way, been married 11 years!

We love our sports!

You have been hanging around the wrong women if that's your opinion of them.

Or you live in Carmel.
