    Yep, another winner off of Craigslist…

    Those striking writters in Hollyweird may take time, from the picket line, to consider the potential of development for this ad ….say for a new venue of reality tv shows?

    As always, your mileage may vary…

    R&R: Looking for a tall, older gentleman to pamper me – 25 from W4M

    *sigh* Sombody seems to have it in their mind to be Mr. Flaggy McFlagerson today, So I’ll post it here and there, again! If you want to read the original post that got me thinking its here http://columbus.craigslist.org/w4m/477700152.html but Everything in that post is in my response below… Enjoy!

    “I must admit, after reading this ad, I thoroughly analyzed the posting to flesh out the wonderful and misunderstood young woman and her plea for a good man. To help others realize the intricacies of this post, I have taken the liberty of breaking down her ad (Bold) and decoding it, rendering my expert opinion on what I think she really wants.(quotation marks)”

    Hi, I am sick of dating guys my own age that are broke and insecure.

    “Hi, I’m opening up my ad by slyly stating I want a sugar daddy! I say slyly because if I came right out and said it, everybody would call me a gold digging whore (more on that later) and that is the furthest from the truth. Notice how I mentioned my disgust for broke men closer to my tender age of 25? Cause men my age have things like student loans to pay for and starting salaries to pay with, which leaves not enough $$$ for yours truly. That means I’m hoping for you, the Old and Rich train, to plow me into the station! Whoo! Whoo!”

    I deserve to be taken out and pampered from time to time.

    “Even though I’m 25, and have only been out of college a couple years, I’ve worked really hard, using my Comm major to advance me to the corner reception desk, and I’ve EARNED the right to be materialistically spoiled upon by a older man. But only if you have money! Cause a poor older man trying to pamper me is just weird.”

    I just broke up with someone that took me out on a date once a month (maybe). I feel like that is just like having a good friend.

    “Like most girls, I dated within my age group, but gosh darn it if my former same age bf didn’t buy me food, clothes, electronics, or jewelry on a very regular basis! I mean taking me out to dinner a couple times, or buying me a cute babydoll dress and gold earrings on my birthday just isn’t enough to achieve the status of me as your girlfriend! I mean truly caring for somebody and showing your love such as holding the door open for them, bringing flowers and supplying massages, or holding their head over the toilet while they puke that 3rd appletini only gets you to the friend zone in my book!”

    I am a good woman. I like to cook, I am funny, I’m attractive, and I’m honest.

    “Now before you think that in exchange for your hard earned money all I’m good for is a roll in the hay (Dirty boy! Hee Hee!) I have other positive attributes as well! I’ll explain…

    Good Woman: I hate the Devil! He’s a pretty mean guy ya know (I hope you haven’t made a deal with him for all your fortunes cause that would lose you points right there)

    Like to cook: I’m pretty mean cook with that Hamburger Helper, especially the one with the meat included! I’m not perfect ya know, sometimes I read the High Altitude instructions and it comes out all wrong, so I have a couple of the best restaurants speed dialed in my cell phone! Of course you’d pay for the both of us, but it’s the fact I tried that counts!

    I’m funny: Not only will I laugh at the lesser spoiled *ahem* bi-otches that your friends have (always funny), I’ll laugh at all of your jokes no matter how silly they are, and that one joke with the Priest, The Rabbi, a duck, and 5 gallons of flavored lube you always like to tell will get me every time!

    I’m attractive, and I’m honest: I decided to roll these together because if you couldn’t tell by my attached pic, I’m honestly attractive. And I’m also honest enough to say what I want! That’s not being a *ahem* bi-otch but just being forward! Isn’t that a nice change of pace?”

    I am tired of young guys that don’t have anything but sex to offer me. I mean, I want someone that actually wants to make me feel special.

    “Young guys think that even though they have few Jacksons, that the mere promise of mind-blowing love making always will catch this tiger, but they’re sadly mistaken if they think that alone will get my kitty kat. I like sex as much as the next girl but a new ipod nano and/or my own apartment (2 bedroom minimum with full utilities) will make me feel special enough to try that 3some you always wanted. I’m naughty I know, just part of the package ;)”

    The holidays are coming up and I am looking for someone to share them with.

    “Santa Claus knows if you’ve been naughty or nice, and nothing says nice like a warm fire, hot spiced cider, you by my side, and a diamond necklace on my delicate neck.”

    Anyone that doesn’t like this add, don’t bother writing to me to tell me off…instead, I suggest you find a hobby.

    “You know how earlier how I said some people might read my ad and get the wrong idea? (not you of course, you’re a sweetheart) Well sometimes I get so mad when they think I’m just a “hollow shell of a human being” Somebody actually wrote that to me! The nerve! I wish they’d get a real hobby like shopping all day at Neiman Marcus or drinking $10 mudslides with my trendy girlfriends and laughing at the girls buying the well drinks because they don’t have someone like you!”

    I’m looking for a real man. A tall man with a sense for romance.

    “Some guy the other day messaged me and said he had lots of money and thought I was cute enough to be spoiled on. Turns out when I met him, he was that Dr Evil guy from the Austin Powers movie! So from now on, I want real live men (It was an embarrassing date, you have no idea) Not only that but short men? Eh they’re not attractive at all. I mean that Michael J Fox is kinda cute, but he’s only 5’4”! They shoulda cast him in the Wizard of Oz as one of the midgets. See this girl is 1st class and if you wanna upgrade from coach, you gotta be 6’ 2 at least. I’m surprised there are even guys under 6 foot tall. You’d think no self respecting girl would have sex with them and they would die out sooner or later. Learned that one in my bio class :p”

    I don’t like middle eastern guys though. They usually treat us women like dirt, and that is the opposite of what I am looking for. Sorry, just like what I like.

    “I remember where I was on September 11th, I was in the tanning booth when somebody said the World Trade Center was hit, and I was thinking where’s that? LA somewhere? Later on, when I heard Middle Eastern guys had done this to us, it made me so mad! I mean how could they make their women wear those sheets covering their whole bodies all the time, It’s so hot down there… and why couldn’t the women just take them off and say “I going to wear a tube top and hot pants and that’s final “(I told my daddy that back in high school and all he could do was yell!) See as an American, I like my freedoms, that somebody else’s father, brother, or sister died for, so I could search in peace, for my one true tall romantic older gentleman to pamper me”

    Addendum: Alas, this was the end of the personal ad that this nameless young lady so boldly wrote. In passing, I hope my in-depth look and explanation of her ad will help her find that one lucky qualified gentleman (could it be you?)that will make her the kept woman she so aspires to be

    I wonder why most American women speak with the nose. Really, this is absolutely anti-sexual.

    They seem to think it’s cool, or sexy, or clever. But it’s not at all.

    Any explanation?

  3. Simone

    I just discovered this blog and it’s pretty much confirmed what I’ve suspected for years. As a Brit who has lived in the USA for 15 years, I have had challenges dating American women. At first I thought there was something wrong with me, but a lot of my fellow Brits have said the same thing. It seems that while American women always go on about loving my accent, they are very closed-minded about the culture. I cannot be direct and to the point with an American women. It seems that I have to pussyfoot around and beat around the bush with them, like treading on eggshells, for fear of saying the wrong thing. I’ve basically diluted my personality to the point where I’m not being myself, almost fake really. American men have grown up with American mothers and sisters that they have learned to appease (read supplicate). Probably moving back to Europe at some point, we’ll see what happens!

    Word: Demasculization (of American males)

    from a talk show blog:

    “WHY have men allowed women to steal their balls! grow some nuts you bastards. and women! for shame all of you, turning men into the “metro sexual” sissies they are today gah! how is a girl supposed to feel safe at home when she’s a better shot with a gun then he is? and he spends more time doing his hair then she does? Men and women play specific roles in the world, we where designed as a species that way, men are stronger then women, their skin is thicker, they are built to endure more then a woman ever should. (not that she can’t lord knows women have deffinately become masculine) Women give LIFE! nuture and provide emotions and support that a man has been trained to repress! and WHY?? because when our god damn cave men ansesters where out hunting they couldn’t have one of them men breaking into an emotional ball of mush! Women and men MUST co-exsist, without each other as a race we will die out. WOMEN! should not be put into a situation that a man should handle, like the army! the last thing we need is a woman breaking emotionally because she killed someone and can’t handle the burning hole it leaves in you to know you have STOLEN life. THAT IS A MANS JOB! TO PROTECT! TO KILL IF NEED BE! a womans job is to give that man comfort! to take him into her arms and into herself so that he can FORGET (if for a short time) the horrible acts it takes to be a man. the kind of control it takes to suck it up, as fathers have said over the generations. women GO HOME! raise your own damn children rather then dropping them off at a strangers day care and hoping they don’t get molested or worse! go home and respect your husbands, your boyfriend, your whatever! respect the fact that, that man doesn’t have the option of breaking down into an emotional heap of bitchyness. and then just shrugging it off as PMS. if you have a sissy man i suggest you SERIOUSLY evaluate if you are really happy.. or are you just a control freak?
    the demasculization of man is a terrible thing but almost as terrible is the DISRESPECT of women! yes women used to be a commodity, owned by the man. But if women can learn to respect and not demasculinize their men, men in turn should learn that a woman is NOT a piece of flesh to put your cock in and ditch as soon as possible. you want to be treated like a man, grow up and act like one, respect your woman, thank her for the emotional support, the love she gives without question, the trust she gives when she lets you into her bed, and realize that catting around from one woman to another is a useless waste of time, sex is sex eventually, you can try new things with the same woman, if you love her enough to explore both of your sexuality. to truely be a man take a wife, make a family live by god or athest or whatever, and have pride, respect, and protect that which you made yours! Women GO HOME! raise your children, men GROW UP! learn what it is to really be a man! someone that can be DEPENDED on.

    My name is Kitterkat, I am a happily married female, a stay at home mom, and i cook dinner for my husband every night, and thank him for providing me with the ability to be a good mom, and a good wife. and he respects me, he is gentle in our bed and hard when we both desire it, he stands up for himself without being an ass. he is a man. as a woman i desire no more.”

    Hmm, well there definitely is a backlash against the feminist movement. I think my generation and I’m going to label it generation x( which is a term I think is ridiculous but I can’t think of anything else to call it) was the last bastion of feminism in this country as I’ve heard from quite a few females of generation “y” that they would prefer to stay at home. The problem though is the decreased earning power of the American male thanks to outsourcing and other factors which require two breadwinners to support a family, but that is a different debate.
    Interestingly enough the women in this country who could take me as i am (a straightforward Brit) all had European fathers! There must be something to this.
    I am looking forward to my move to Europe in a couple of years (probably Prague or Bratislava, I like both) and being able to be myself!

    This comparison is ok only for continental Europe. Statistics show that the British Isles are very close to the Americans for the increase of obesity.

  8. Anonymous

    I haven’t lived in the UK in 15 years, my friends tell me the rate of obesity is high, but nowhere near as bad as the U.S. which has by ratio to population, the largest people in the world. The main problem here is that everything is built around the automobile. Many towns and cities have no sidewalks or bike lanes, just green verges and curbs, and even if you want to walk everything is really spread out. In the UK every town has sidewalks and many amenities are within walking distance. When you couple driving everywhere with junk food, you are looking at a rapidly expanding ass.

    ‘Yo Anonymous…this is the state of affairs in the UK (which leads the US by a few years, near as I can tell by what I view occuring on the West Coast of the US) as viewed from both sides.

    Btw I apologise for any negative comments I have made to you over the years. A long story, but the fault lies within me. All The Best in your journey!

    From The TimesOnLine, February 1, 2008

    Where have all the men gone?
    British women in their thirties want mates. They can’t find any. Why? Because most eligible males are selfish, mixed-up man-boys chasing no-strings sex, says our correspondent.

    Laura Nolan
    Men are like eggs. They must hatch or go bad. I came to this conclusion after seeing in the new year with a gang of university friends and hearing one of them, a single guy of 35 called Jamie, declare with complete sincerity that his resolution for 2008 was not to get a girlfriend.

    I groaned. His vow struck me as odd, not just because Jamie is a remarkably warm, kind and entertaining individual rather than some ropey Lothario, but because I knew him ten years ago when he was mustard keen to marry his then girlfriend. And when I thought harder about it, I realised that over the past decade Jamie has effectively been degenerating from the man he was at 25 years old to the boy he is today.

    The person who fell in love and believed that when you found a great girl you counted your blessings and married her has morphed into someone in search of nothing more than a bit of fun, who views any relationship that he can’t get out of at the ping of a text message with genuine unease.

    Where have all the men gone? Instead, we have an overload of man-boys – which leaves a generation of single, thirtysomething women who are their natural mates bewildered. I am one of those women.

    I am often told that our problem boils down to bad timing. In our early twenties (the age at which our parents tended to meet and marry), we, arguably the first generation of properly educated and professionally ambitious women, were not ready to settle down and start having babies.

    By our late twenties many of us did end up reconnecting with our first loves, or met men of a similar age who were still young enough to want to match and hatch. But for those who didn’t, life is increasingly complicated – and infuriating.

    The assumption seems to be that it is our fault that we can’t find “him”. I have lost count of the number of articles by female columnists that I’ve read, urging “career women” like me to get pregnant before it is too late. I want to point out that I work to eat, and that earning a salary funds the social life needed to meet new people.

    What do they think we are doing? Take India Knight’s attack, in The Sunday Times, on what she called “the sweetly retro notion of mooching around pining for Mr Right as the (biological) clock ticks away”. “My advice to all my girlfriends is, just do it,” she announces. “Get pregnant. Don’t wait. Mr Right can turn into Mr Wrong overnight: there are no certainties.”

    And we wonder why men are afraid to commit, when women like me are depicted as hormonally charged sperm-bandits interested in nothing beyond the urge to have a child.

    Does society really want usto settle for Mr Only OK rather than the real deal? Marriage strikes me as hard enough work without saddling yourself with someone for whom you don’t quite feel all that’s necessary. And giving birth with your mother at your bedside because your child’s father isn’t that into you, or the baby, strikes me as far sadder than never getting pregnant at all.

    Having lived in New York for five years, and compared notes with friends in other cities (Hong Kong, Paris and Singapore among them), I can assert that the attack on thirtysomething singletons seems to be a particularly English trait. In other cities we are left alone at worst, celebrated at best, and most people find someone at some stage, even if it is at the age of 40. In my view, London is quintessentially chauvinist, a state of affairs exacerbated by the City, the all-male drinking clubs, the pub and football culture, and the strong, albeit small, group of women who seem to treat marriage as their sole raison d’être.

    But what of these Brit boys who fail to hatch by their mid-thirties? Do they really turn bad? They don’t necessarily become bad company – as long as the relationship is kept platonic. Many of my best friends are utterly charming bachelors, but they are also the first to admit that they are rubbish boyfriends. Interestingly, they also agree that this wasn’t always the case.

    “Looking back, I can see a couple of girls I was ready to marry ten years ago. But I seem to have drifted farther and farther away from being ready since then,” one of them confided as his 40th birthday approached. “I felt a level of certainty about people then that I don’t feel now.”

    Personally, I think an odd thing happens to man-boy brains at about the age of 30. Some neural pathway, hitherto well oiled through a diet of normal relationships and an awareness of such terms as “compromise” and “I’m sorry”, tunes in to a specific area of the brain labelled “navel gazing”. If it miraculously misses that zone, it veers into another equally exclusive area: “near-total romantic/emotional shutdown beyond the next 24/48-hour period”.

    My last few years of dating reads like either a therapist’s dream or a dictionary of neuroses. On the neurotic front, one man-boy aged 32 had a panic attack at dinner, which he thought was a heart attack until we got to A&E and he was assured otherwise. Another wore a watch that monitored his sleep patterns.

    More common, however, are those who insist on persuading you that they are the one you have been waiting for, only to run away the second you show signs of agreeing. One man rang me every two hours for a week to persuade me that what we had going was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, until I started to think that he might be right – at which point he told me that he was too messed up for a relationship.

    Another invited me to Spain after one date, only to say at the end of it that it was “all too full-on”. Another couldn’t stop sending soppy texts, until I sent one back. All were thirtysomething, bright, successful bachelors. They had all had therapy. They all talked ad infinitum about their “ishoos”. But not one of them asked about mine. I listened, and either left, or they did.

    Nobody expects these guys to settle for Ms Only OK, either, but it’s fair to say that most of them are not looking to settle for anyone – and, in fact, dating a series of Ms Only OKs fills the gap nicely.

    “In theory I’d like a family,” says one. “But it doesn’t feel urgent and in the meantime I have a great life with plenty of sex – all on my own terms. Love has sort of disappeared from the menu. And yes, now I’ve learnt that I can, I mess women around in ways I’d never have done in my twenties.”

    Horror stories from friends abound, too. “I spent most of last year with a guy who used to weigh me every day and refused to sleep with me if I got too heavy,” admits a colleague. “How bonkers was that? But the awful thing is that once you pass 36, you find it’s single men rather than single women who are the prize commodity.”

    I don’t know of any woman my age (35) who hasn’t spent several years in love with a boyfriend, only to have to give up on the relationship after realising that children and commitment were not going to happen for ages, if at all.

    Many of these guys would be living happily as husbands and fathers if they had taken the plunge. But they haven’t. So what’s the answer? Become more hard-boiled and accept that, in return for children, we will have to make do with someone Only OK? Go after men ten years younger than us? Or try bruised divorcés ten years older?

    There is another option, of course. And that is that the whole generation of single man-boys start behaving like men. Meanwhile, everyone else could stop asking us why we’re not married yet, and wrongly assuming that it’s because we are so work-obsessed that we don’t want to be.

    Believe us, we are not single through want of trying.

    It’s a statistics thing

    For every 100 females, 108 males are born in the UK. But owing to the higher mortality rates of young males, by the mid-teens the numbers have evened out. This remains the case until old age, when a surplus of women arises again.

    In some big cities, including London, there are more women than men. There is debate about the reasons for this, but it is nothing new. The thirtysomething single status is new, however – mainly because women now leave it later to marry. In their mid-thirties they find themselves in a predicament, whether they outnumber men of their age or not.

    A study I carried out on lonely hearts ads indicated that, while single females typically advertise for men three to five years older than them, men advertise for women of a certain age irrespective of their own. Their preferred age is 24 to 25. So the men that the women want are looking for women, but younger ones.

    So should a woman in her mid-thirties be looking for a man in his forties instead? Perhaps – but only in his late forties. I was involved in research that looked at how the sexes perceive their market value – ie, what they think their “package” is worth to the opposite sex. The results suggested that males in their early and mid-forties overestimated their standing the most. They are getting richer at this age, and become self-deluded about what they can get in return. They also want to attract a twentysomething, but are less likely to succeed than younger men. Only in their mid to late forties, when their risk of death increases (they may be rich, but they may also die), do they become more realistic.

    In short, women seem to hang on to the ideal, and many get lucky. But when they start wanting to settle down, they opt for what biologists call the Hobson’s Choice Strategy. In layman’s terms, they opt for something over nothing.

    — PROFESSOR ROBIN DUNBAR

    The man’s view: try this instead

    Most single men want love. But they are also terrified of failure, poverty and being trapped. They are scared of turning into their dads, or, if divorced, repeating their old mistakes. They are scared that their women will make them throw out their comics, their motorbikes and their dreams of writing novels.

    It doesn’t really matter which type of man you go for – younger, older, divorced. What matters is that you go for him.

    Personally, I think the divorced man is more realistic. He’s not like a young man who can’t commit because he yearns for a fairytale goddess whose heart he may one day capture. The older man just wants someone who won’t shout at him. If it takes her two minutes to get into the car, she’s ideal. If she’s giving, and laughs at his jokes, he’ll love her for ever. Give those bruised men a try. Stop expecting to find The One. Find someone, and give him love recklessly.

    Or you can snare one of the single man-boys, but you must be cunning. You must wait for him to call but, when he does, you must be devoted and give him glorious sex in flattering lighting.

    There is only one time when a man knows, for certain, that he loves his woman and will stay with her for ever: when she has just chucked him. The rest of the time he’s not sure. I remember the first time my wife said: “Let’s have children!” I knew that this was an historic moment. I must respond like a man. So I ignored her. Men’s heads are filled with confusion, fear and football statistics. And whenever they are made an offer, they always feel the negatives first – and if they can’t express them, they clam up like oysters.

    In which case, trapping them may involve trickery. After five months – preferably during a three-day trip to Paris, so he can’t get away – you must say, lightly and just before sex: “I love every part of your life. I want to see you richly succeed. But you must marry me.” Then you must change tack and become very soft. You have touched on his deepest fears. Listen. Tell him to write that novel. Tell him that you love ELO. After a two-day sulk, which will be immensely wounding for you, he will begin to express his horrid, selfish fears, and thus you will be stumbling towards your perfectly imperfect life.

    Try not to worry about what happens. Remember, there are also loads of men like me: the ones who hatched, and still went bad. We wish you luck. We wish you love. We’ll see you by the swings in five years.

    Follow-up on Word: Demasculization (of American males)

    I’ll tell you why women are running out of men to marry (www.Telegraph.co.uk)

    By Boris Johnson

    Last Updated: 12:01am GMT 01/02/2007

    I was half asleep in the front seat the other day, coming back from some exhausting tour of an educational establishment, and in the back seat were two twentysomething female graduates. They were talking about men, so I tried to focus, while keeping my eyes cunningly half closed.

    One of them made the eternal feminine complaint. “All men are useless these days,” she said. “Yeah,” said the other. “The trouble is that they haven’t risen to the challenge of feminism. They don’t understand that we need them to be more masculine, and instead they have just copped out.”

    I am afraid that, at this point, I copped out myself, and slid into unconsciousness. But before I went under I thought, hmmm, this is interesting; and I think back to that conversation as I read that women continue their astonishing dominance of university admissions.

    advertisementLook at those girls go! Women now make up 57 per cent of university entrants, and they outnumber men in every subject — including maths and engineering. This thing is huge, and it is happening at every level, and no one seems to be thinking about the consequences.

    Most trainee barristers and two thirds of medical students are now women — compared with 29 per cent women in the early 1990s. If current trends continue, most doctors will be female by 2012. It is ludicrous for the Equal Opportunities Commission to keep droning on about “glass ceilings” at the top of corporate Britain, or in the judiciary, when you think how fast this transformation has been.

    It is a stunning fact — the biggest social revolution of our lifetime — that far more women than men are now receiving what is in theory an elite academic education. When I was at university 20 years ago, the figures were almost exactly the other way round, with the ratio 60:40 in favour of males. Far more female graduates are coming out of our universities than male graduates — and, in 30 years’ time, when these people reach the peak of their careers, the entire management structure of Britain will have been transformed and feminised.

    Speaking as an ardent feminist, I expect that this will have many wonderful results: a culture that is more feng shui and emotionally literate and altogether nicer, and an economy that benefits from unleashing the phenomenal energy and talents of British women who are — if GCSEs, A-levels and university entrance results mean anything — currently giving the male sex a good old intellectual thrashing.

    Obviously a neanderthal corner of my heart worries about some aspects of the coming feminisation. Will we all become even more namby-pamby, elf-n-safety-conscious, regulation-prone and generally incapable of beating the Australians at anything than we already are? Hmm? And even if the feminist revolution is good and unstoppable (and it is both), we should perhaps consider some of the downsides — and the most interesting is that greater equality between the sexes is actually leading to greater division between the classes. Here’s how.

    Since the emergence of our species, it has been a brutally sexist feature of romance that women on the whole — and I stress on the whole — will want to mate/procreate with men who are either on a par with themselves, or their superior, in socio-economic and intellectual attainment. A recent study shows that if a man’s IQ rises by 16 points, his chances of marrying increase by 35 per cent; if a woman’s IQ rises by 16 points, her chances of getting hitched decline by the same amount.

    Now look at those university entrance figures again, feed in that basic human prejudice, and some recent social phenomena become intelligible. If you have a sudden surge in the number of highly educated women — more women than men — then it is not surprising that you have a fair few Bridget Jones-type characters who are having a tough job finding Mr Darcy. It is a gloomy truth that 40 per cent of female graduates born in 1970 are likely to enter their forties childless.

    As a result of the same instinct — female desire to procreate with their intellectual equals — the huge increase in female university enrolments is leading to a rise in what the sociologists call assortative mating. A snappier word for it is homogamy. The more middle-class graduates we create, the more they seem to settle down with other middle-class graduates, very largely because of the feminine romantic imperative already described. The result is that the expansion of university education has actually been accompanied by a decline in social mobility, and that is because these massive enrolments have been overwhelmingly middle-class.

    It is one of the sad failures of this Government that relatively few bright children from poor backgrounds have been encouraged to go to university, partly because of weaknesses in primary and secondary education, partly because of the withdrawal of the ladder of opportunity provided by academic selection. Once they have failed to go to university, the boom in the number of middle-class female students only intensifies their disadvantages.

    Let’s put it bluntly: nice female middle-class graduates are either becoming permanent Bridget Joneses, or marrying nice male graduates, and they seem on the whole to be turning up their nice graduate noses at male non-graduates. And when the nice middle-class graduate couples get together, they have the double income to buy the houses and push the prices up — and make life even tougher for the non-graduates.

    The result is that we have widening social divisions, and two particularly miserable groups: the female graduates who think men are all useless because they can’t find a graduate husband, and the male non-graduates who feel increasingly trampled on by the feminist revolution, and resentful of all these hoity-toity female graduates who won’t give them the time of day.

    What is the answer, my friends? I don’t know. We could try fiscal incentives for heterogamy. We could have plotlines in soap operas, in which double first girls regularly marry illiterate brickies.

    But the only long-term solution for the “uselessness” of young men, as complained of by my twentysomething colleagues, is to get serious with the education of males in primary schools. And if the Equal Opportunities Commission wants to say something sensible for a change, it should start campaigning for more male teachers.

    I’d be interested to see how many of these hoity-toity female graduates are still single and childless in their thirties. One of the reasons I left the UK in my early twenties was the class system, although in the U.S. I still have to deal with feminist females.

    I dread election season.The overwelming single women will vote for Baraq Obama or Hillary Clinton.I think that one of the biggest mistakes we ever made in this country was to give women the right to vote.I live in the Peoples Republic of Maryland, and the women in this state voted for the Communist candidate Martin O’Malley, and the taxes in this state are going thru the roof.The single women in this state voted for O’Malley because he had a nice smile.

  15. Mike40

    Martin O’Malley is a tax and spend communist.Not only did he raise the sales tax from 5% to 6%, but he is give drivers license to illegal aliens,and he has raised the state payroll tax,and he will be extending the sales tax to services.Alot of people I have been talking to will be leaving the state for Penn or Virginia.We can thank those single women voters in the Peoples Republic of Maryland.

    Scorpion, your comments made my day. LMFAO. Thanks, man. Actually, your point is correct in many ways. I don`t agree with all your statements, but in general I have to say you have surprisingly good insight into the characteristic qualities of women in Americas, Europe and Asia. I`m male, half Czech, and my nation has troops in Iraq and Afghanistan basically from the very beginning. The numbers are significant when you consider the small population of our nation. So even from that point of view you are wrong when you include Czech men into your “faggot and pussies” group. In my opinion East and Central EU girls are amazing. Some Asians too. I`ve not dated South Americans yet, but from what I know they might be cool too. I`m just not sure if they stay slim and tight over their 30s. Into the top females of the world I would personally include African girls, especially those from DRC, RSA, Ethiopia and Ghana. Many of them respect traditional values and make even better wives than Euro girls. I agree with you on general basis, but unlike you I believe that in the U.S. with a population of nearly 300 million and large number of immigrants from all parts of the world, still is a number of wonderful girls and women. Even among the Americans by birth. And no, I am neither gay, nor closet faggot. I`m 100% into feminine women and agree that the bloody feminists and men-like women suck. What worse can a woman do than to act, look and behave like a male?! It`s disgusting! I also can`t believe that some grown-up women like the gay-looking pussies, who dress unisex, dye hair and look more feminine than women and gays combined.

    I THINK AMERICAN WOMEN ARE PRETTIER AND CLEANER THAN EUROPEAN WOMEN. WE SHAVE AND WE BATHE FREQUENTLY. THE PICTURE YOU HAVE POSTED OF THE AMERICAN WOMAN IS WHITE TRASH! THEY HAVE EURO-TRASH THAT LOOK LIKE THAT TOO! I USED TO LIVE IN EUROPE. THE WOMEN HAVE BAD TEETH AND THEY STINK! THEY PUT PERFUME OVER FUNK! WHEN I WAS IN EUROPE I ATTRACTED LOTS OF ATTENTION! GUYS WHISTLED AND YELLED TO GET MY ATTENTION! I AM A BLACK WOMAN AND AMERICAN. I THINK EUROPEAN MEN AS A WHOLE ARE MORE DOWN TO EARTH BUT WHO WANTS TO DEAL WITH UNCUT AND SHMEGMA FILLED PENISES ANYWAY????? THAT IS WHY EUROPEAN WOMEN HAVE A HIGHER RATE OF CERVICAL CANCER AND OTHER REPRODUCTIVE PROBLEMS!!!!! AMERICAN MEN ARE SMUG BUT THEY ARE CUTE , HAVE CLEAN HAIR, WELL GROOMED AND HAVE NICE TEETH! I KNOW THE DIFFERENCE! AMERICA IS A COUNTRY THAT IS VERY CLEANLINESS ORIENTED AND EUROPE IS A CONTINENT THAT IS FILLED WITH FILTH AND DRUNKS! I’D TAKE A CUTE AMERICAN SNOWBOARDER OVER A EUROPEAN SKI CHAMPION ANYTIME!!!!!!!

    It’s not just that American women are generally fat and ugly but they have a crap attitude and are really stupid, introverted, ignorant, materialistic even if they are ugly like most of them and selfish and that is not there worst points. They have got to be the worst catch in the world and the men are equally as bad. I would NEVER consider an American woman unless it was Michelle Pfeiffer. As soon as i hear an American accent male or female its torture and repugnant as i know something completeluy ignorant and stupid is gonna come out of its mouth. Nice country though just a shame about its people.

  23. yahoo hooray

    Fatirah, you better shut your mouth, cause you don`t know what you`re talking about. Your opinion is as relevant as if I said: I lived in the middle of nowhere somewhere in America and Americans are like this and that! On other words you say that Euro girls don`t bath frequently, smell, don`t shave, have bad teeth… You dumbass, have you ever noticed how many Euro girls have become top models? Europe has a population of over 700mil. people and consists of some 50 different countries. Do you really think your knowledge and opinion is relevant? When, for how long and where did you live to get your stupid opinions? Some village in Ukraine that was full of rednecks? Do you think girls in Paris, Munich, Amsterdam, Prague, Stockholm or London don`t bath or don`t brush their teeth? Believe me, you don`t know shit about Europe and your comment only confirmed that some American women are really stupid and ignorant. Haha, try to say some women from Europe that they did not keep personal hygiene until they moved to the States! Talk to Italian Madonna, Czech Ivana Trump, German Heidi Klum or find some others yourself to educate you.

    Pregnancy Boom at Gloucester High
    By Kathleen Kingsbury

    As summer vacation begins, 17 girls at Gloucester High School are expecting babies — more than four times the number of pregnancies the 1,200-student school had last year. Some adults dismissed the statistic as a blip. Others blamed hit movies like Juno and Knocked Up for glamorizing young unwed mothers. But principal Joseph Sullivan knows at least part of the reason there’s been such a spike in teen pregnancies in this Massachusetts fishing town. School officials started looking into the matter as early as October, after an unusual number of girls began filing into the school clinic to find out if they were pregnant. By May, several students had returned multiple times to get pregnancy tests, and on hearing the results, “some girls seemed more upset when they weren’t pregnant than when they were,” Sullivan says. All it took was a few simple questions before nearly half the expecting students, none older than 16, confessed to making a pact to get pregnant and raise their babies together. Then the story got worse. “We found out one of the fathers is a 24-year-old homeless guy,” the principal says, shaking his head.

    The question of what to do next has divided this fiercely Catholic enclave. Even with national data showing a 3% rise in teen pregnancies in 2006 — the first increase in 15 years — Gloucester isn’t sure it wants to provide easier access to birth control. In any case, many residents worry that the problem goes much deeper. The past decade has been difficult for this mostly white, mostly blue-collar city (pop. 30,000). In Gloucester, perched on scenic Cape Ann, the economy has always depended on a strong fishing industry. But in recent years, such jobs have all but disappeared overseas, and with them much of the community’s wherewithal. “Families are broken,” says school superintendent Christopher Farmer. “Many of our young people are growing up directionless.”

    The girls who made the pregnancy pact — some of whom, according to Sullivan, reacted to the news that they were expecting with high fives and plans for baby showers — declined to be interviewed. So did their parents. But Amanda Ireland, who graduated from Gloucester High on June 8, thinks she knows why these girls wanted to get pregnant. Ireland, 18, gave birth her freshman year and says some of her now pregnant schoolmates regularly approached her in the hall, remarking how lucky she was to have a baby. “They’re so excited to finally have someone to love them unconditionally,” Ireland says. “I try to explain it’s hard to feel loved when an infant is screaming to be fed at 3 a.m.”

    The high school has done perhaps too good a job of embracing young mothers. Sex-ed classes end freshman year at Gloucester, where teen parents are encouraged to take their children to a free on-site day-care center. Strollers mingle seamlessly in school hallways among cheerleaders and junior ROTC. “We’re proud to help the mothers stay in school,” says Sue Todd, CEO of Pathways for Children, which runs the day-care center.

    But by May, after nurse practitioner Kim Daly had administered some 150 pregnancy tests at Gloucester High’s student clinic, she and the clinic’s medical director, Dr. Brian Orr, a local pediatrician, began to advocate prescribing contraceptives regardless of parental consent, a practice at about 15 public high schools in Massachusetts. Currently Gloucester teens must travel about 20 miles (30 km) to reach the nearest women’s health clinic; younger girls have to get a ride or take the train and walk. But the notion of a school handing out birth control pills has met with hostility. Says Mayor Carolyn Kirk: “Dr. Orr and Ms. Daly have no right to decide this for our children.” The pair resigned in protest on May 30.

    Gloucester’s elected school committee plans to vote later this summer on whether to provide contraceptives. But that won’t do much to solve the issue of teens wanting to get pregnant. Says rising junior Kacia Lowe, who is a classmate of the pactmakers’: “No one’s offered them a better option.” And better options may be a tall order in a city so uncertain of its future. — With reporting by Kimberley McLeod/New York

    I think this is a ridiculous debate and I support Mr.’Norwegian’. How people can hate women on the basis of country of origin? Everyone (especially women of US and Europe) should hate this type of people.

    okay, Scorpion does not fit to breath the same air as human beings. He sounds like a complete pig (note that almost everyone of his post involves “euro women being a lot more sexually active”).

    I’m sorry Scorpion but you sound like you’re really ugly that no American women would date you, so you have to be one of those guys who go to third world countries and hire prostitutes. that’s why you’re getting all these “beautiful euro women”

    you basically fit on of the posting about howw there are really ugly rich white men in America with a gorgeous euro women.

    and also i’m asian and i do believe that american women are often on the heavy side, but so are american men.

  27. Em

    noticing that all these american guys are complaining about how american women behave “men like”, well american men are like little boys. they dont believe that they should pay for dinner and that it would be best if the girl paid for half, yet they’re expecting american girls to kiss their ass and act like euro women from third world countries. of course these euro women are going to be sexually open to you… she hoping that you’ll get her a green card for god sake.

    i personally find american men unattractive because theyre so fucken cheap and unmasculine. they need the girl to pay for herself all the time and support half the household… so why is it again that she’s not allow to be “men like”? she’s doing the man work.

    and american men are reallly dumb… they lack basic common sense.

  28. Izabella

    Wow, the majoria of these posts are just complaints from some very pathetic men. Let me pose an intelligent question!

    Would an attractive man that speaks five languages and has a master’s degree in business want a very average-looking woman that works at the library?

    The answer is NO! If you guys can’t get hott, classy women in your country, it’s because you guys aren’t physically appealing or smart enough for them to want you~

    And foreign women don’t want you either, trust me, we don’t, we have a lot more taste than that. The only way you guys could possibly get laid (American, Foreign, any pussy) is through the use of date rape drugs or maybe if you pay a lot of money to our prostitutes. Okay, I’m ready, call me a feminazi, an obese bitch, whatever you want. At the end of the day, its you poor, hopeless men that are jacking off alone in your trailor parks.

    Adeus bixonas!! And please stay the fuck out of Brasil!! We brasilian girls don’t want you here! Our men actually have something to offer!

  29. Gunslinger

    Izabella,
    What is wrong with jacking off in a trailer park?
    A masters degree and 5 languages does not guarrentee happiness in America. If he will marry an american. Whether that woman works in the library or not. American woman after they have kids she can detroy his lifes work. She can divorce him and keep the kids more than likely and charge him a large fee for being a man. Do you understand now. That is why even successful men from America would be desiring a foreign woman. Also unsuccessful men that get a foreign woman can become successful through their love of that woman. The difference between rich and poor is just a few years of work. The difference between heaven and hell can be an American woman that lives under american law.

    The difference between any man being pathetic or not is the quality of their woman. Obviously you do not have what it takes Izabella to turn a normal man into a great man. You expect the man to be great first and then be worthy of you. Like you said why would a man after he is successful pick you. You should move to the us and get the fuck out of brazil where all I hear is how great the woman are. Izabella you belong in America.
    Later,

  30. Izabella

    We brasilians are great…! We are fun and like to enjoy life. We actually exercise and care about our bodies. I met many American men because I live in Rio and they come for vacation. They are boring…just talk about work…and most are very fat. They are good just for money. For sex, for love, and for all other things, all other men do better.

    Is your first name Gunslinger? Such a ugly name. You must be confused and lonely. In Brasil, everyone would see you as a vagabundo…I love my country, I hope to meet you here, maybe I can make you into a great man, I can take your virginity hahah and teach you how to plesure women…vou ti comer y depois vc vai ficar feliz huahahah….

  31. Sue

    Ok, man there are a lot of rude people commenting.
    Here is what the difference is between the american women and the europeans.
    American women who are ‘normal’ will do anything and everything to improve what they have. They will strive to have everything on them as beautiful as possible. For example, American women will always die their hair over going grey, they will wear contacts over glasses, they will get plastic surgery to get their face together and they will diet and workout fiercely to obtain a look. They will bleach their teeth, inject their skin with botulin, implant breasts, do their nails with acrylic, paint their toes and put sparkles on them, tan their skin and get their cellulite removed or sucked out.
    What do European women do?
    Oh, like NOTHING!
    First of all, European women are accepted as they are, and they do not feel the pressure to have nose jobs. They all wear glasses if they need them and there are a lot more women with short hair. They dont care as much about foundation, aging, wrinkles or bleaching their teeth, or even putting braces on their teeth or their children. The entire society does not command perfection therefore they don’t conform.
    I go to Germany all the time, and for example, I see some women there who for American standards would be a candidate for extreme makeover! But they are loved by their husbands and live productive lives. These same women would have been banished to ugly land if they were here.
    When I am in Europe I feel wonderful and beautiful.
    When I am in America I feel ugly and fat and not good enough.. why? Well when all you see are magazines of women who are nothing but fake you think thre is something wrong with you for being real……
    The Europeans wouldnt want you any other way!

  32. edward,

    Ive seen woman that show off and they are grosse who cares about a nice body if thier a snob and theres nothing inside,
    ive seen african woman that are really sweet and they care more about you in a really genuine way than alot of ones ive seen here,
    I think african woman care about family alot, and, and they have genuine values,
    And you can talk with them without them getting hyper like alot of american ones ive seen here,
    I cant stand hyper woman they turn me off,
    You can never trust what thier gonna say,
    as alot of the time, its made up insecure BS anyway to just sound off so they dont care what you say or think,

  33. edward,

    i just read alot of posts on here and me being american am unlike alot of guys out there that are cheap and dont care about a woman,
    im the opposite,
    I like to dote on her and touch her and love on her and share with her,
    I treat a lady with love and respect and I try to be with her as much as possible and I dont care about looks or the make up thing to make yourself better like woman do over here,
    I treat a lady with respect and if she dont like it,well then i guess her and me will go our seperate ways and then whatever,
    I see alot of,,,,,,
    tooo much of this stupid stinking independant attitude over here in the USA,
    I mean ive not had a nice date in yrs as all i see is this crap that the woman are all busy with kids or alot of timees really dont care about you anyway and are selfish beyond measure,
    Im weary of woman over here that are BSers and ones that hang out with the low class crowd,all i try to do is get along and if i cant do that than forget the whole thing,
    I take her out to dinner and whatever else she wants and i dont like to talk about work but if its on her mind than ill go over it with her and then we can go to something else,

    Being a European who lived in the States I can say this: Europe unlike the U.S. consists of numerous republics and kingdoms. You travel for an hour and get to see people with different history, economy, nationality and culture. Although the States are multicultural and multiethnical in a way, this is different. Whenever you folks say Europe is this and that or Euro girls or this and that, you are wrong. In America there are differences between cities and rural areas, but in Europe you cross a border to another country and see a 100-yr difference in development level and totally different people. So next time you try presenting yourself a “Euro-women-expert” first ask yourself what countries you have in mind by Europe. Are talking Russia, France, Germany, Czech, Monaco, Albania, Ukraine, Sweden… hope you see how retarded are the generalizing comments above.

  39. david linden

    P.S. I bet those “would be experts” who tend to judge Euro women and men can`t even name all the European countries and their capitals. You might travel to one, two or a few countries, shag a few whores, but that does not make you qualified to judge the whole continent. You`re generalizing in a retarded way. It`s like saying e.g. Asian women look this way, do this and don`t do that. Well, what Asian women are you talking about?! Thai, North Koreans, Indian, Malaysian…? Do you comprehend the differences between Japanese and Mongolian women? The answer is NO! Therefore don`t you dare to say, that you know European women and men! If I shag a smelly, hairy, drug addicted whore in Alabama and then one ugly, drunk blonde slut with breast implants in New Mexico, does that qualify me to tell what American women are like?

    An alternate to this site is ‘Men are better than women’ which has some distinct logic concerning women (in general).

    Your mileage may vary….

    Btw From a woman comedian: “You know what a Soccer Mom is? A woman between the age of 35 and cunt!!”

    Truer word I could not have expressed myself. I have dated many who fit that category. No more!

    Regarding Latino chicks as the ‘hottest’….
    major downsides are 1)Drama Queens (addicts) and 2)you will inherit their dysfunctional families.

    Wow…One year since my last post, go figure that nothing has changed? Surprise, surprise, surprise!
