Why is it that everytime I meet a girl/woman that I think is the one for me she turns out to be something totally not what I'm looking for? Just wondering... I don't have any difficulty finding a woman to be with but I'm really looking for someone to settle down with. The last one, while she did have two kids (not always a negative) lied to me constantly. Specifically about doing (drug name deleted). I'm really tired of all the strung out women out there... aren't there any sane women who are looking to settle down? I mean I hold a respectable job, I an very much a gentleman, and a nice guy... of course we all know the nice guy finishes last.

Anyway sorry for ranting here, I just thought this would be the best place to do it and maybe get some feed back.

The short answer is no. There are no women out there who're just normal. At least I haven't found any. [Wink] You just gotta find one whose issues come across to you as mere intricacies.

I've never met a woman who wasn't at least one of: neurotic, crazy, mischievious, untrustworthy, weird, strung out, boring, etc.

Not to say guys are perfect. I know I have my issues.

But like I said, the issue is finding someone who you can deal with and enjoy, regardless of any of those things.

You say that like it's a list of bad things. At least three things on that list attract me to a female [Wink]

I'm glad you think so [blush]

Hmm, maybe I can print out this thread and send it to her as a "reference" of sorts. Or a puzzle, where she gets to work out which of the list I'm attracted to, and which ones she is (and any overlap) [Big Grin]

Yes, indeed, the saying goes: "Nice guys finish last." However, it is important to note that the saying does *NOT* say: "Nice guys don't finish."

For it is true that nice guys DO indeed finish, they just tend to do so at a slower pace and later date then... uhm... un-nice guys. [Smile] And I believe that the nice guys, because of their patience, perciverence, and other descriptors that start with "p," will finish in a much more satisfied position, rather then being un-happily married all their lives, as seems to happen to many un-nice guys.

Also, if you think about it, statisticaly speaking, meeting someone who has the same or similar interests as you AND who has a personality that is compatable to yours AND who has a belief/moral system compatable to yours AND who you find attractice AND.... The chances are staggering!! [Eek!] I beleive there's a little more than just chance and luck at play, but that's me.

Good luck and keep your chin up. The finest gold passes through the hottest flames and all that. [Smile]

Hmm, I'd only start looking if Mrs csk remarried someone else. So, my actual chances of finding someone else are

Pex_mrs_csk_finding_someone x Pcsk_finding_someone

Plus, those probabilities are further reduced since neither of us would date/marry a non-Christian.

You're right, looking at it from a purely mathematical point of view is incredibly depressing [Frown]

Stop it, CSK, or you'll get me depressed too.

/me wonders how to compete with a "Crystal" for the affection of favorite most eligible man.

Pperson_not_being_ex_mrs_csk=~6,000,000,000.
Pperson_of_preferred_gender =~3,000,000,000.
Even if your odds of finding someone just right for you are 1 in a 1,000,000, that makes 3,000 people who are just waiting for csk to come around.

Let some physics cheer you up. While it's highly unlikely that that population inversion would occur. The number of attempts photon's make are so high, that population inversion occurs all the time.

Ahh, but Ooby, don't forget to eliminate the parts of the female population who are unavailable due to age, marital status, religious beliefs, geography, etc.

I was not really looking for sympathy, mostly I was just trying to set off some steam.

Also I'm not looking for someone normal, as I am not normal, the two would be completely incompatable. It's like trying to use an EISA modem in a PCI slot. I'm crazy, insane a little but mostly in a good way, at least that's what everyone that the Institute keeps telling me [crazy] . I'm just trying, like the rest of the world out there, to find someone who fits in at least a little. As a teacher I laugh at often might say "Drugs are bad mmmmkay."

Apparently there might less self destructive women in PA... hmmm have to check that out sometime.

Thanks all.

Only a geek would come up with that PCI/EISA analogy.

Only a geek would understand and be able to sympathise with it. :|

Hehe. One of the religious threads I was going to explain how Christianity and the church congregations around the place are like the Linux kernel and the plethora of distributions (the core part is the same, but the surrounding emphasis, purpose, etc can be very different. But they still all can rightly call themselves "Linux" or "Christians" respectively). But I wrote it off as way too geeky at the time.

So, given those probabilities we were discussing earlier, if I end up finding someone else years down the track, I expect mass conversions to religion by all you people, since it is very unlikely to happen by chance [Wink]

Actually, I think that analogy would have worked perfectly. Especially in this group. [Big Grin]

I agree, I think the analogy would work well... I'd particularly like to hear it more in depth [Smile]

Or, to put it in musical terms: It's a theme and its variations. The Bible's teachings are the basis for Christianity (acknowledgement of sin, belief in salvation provided through Christ's death on the cross, confession of faith in Christ). That's the theme. The variations come in to play when people--with differences of perspectives and cultures--read the Bible and attempt to live their faith. Some people are going to have a rather ascetic view of Christian life; others will lean toward the Apostle Paul's view that "everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial." Some people have a fast and loud Christianity. Others play it with rubato and depth of emotion.

Clear as mud? [Smile]
