The shirtless pictures are everywhere. Seems like everyone wants to take their shirts off these days...
Ladies, whenever you click on a man's profile and view his photo album, and you see him just standing there with no shirt on, what kind of thoughts go through your head? Are you instantly turned off by seeing the man with his bare chest exposed, or do you happen to like it?
Are you okay with seeing pictures of men in their bathrooms taking pictures of themselves with no shirt on, or would you rather have something left to the imagination?
Or maybe you prefer to see men's shirtless pictures because you're a bit curious to know what a guy's physique looks like before you begin talking to him? Or do you find the shirtless pictures to be downright distasteful?
And does it make you wonder if a man with a photo album full of shirtless pictures has any substance to himself, beyond the shirtless pictures? Does it send you a signal that the only thing that this man probably has to offer a woman is his body - and his bare chest?
So what is it about the nice guys, that causes them to always finish last? Why is it that so many women seem to prefer either a bad boy, a thug, or a guy who is "rough around the edges" in some way? Is it because these types of men are perceived as being more fun and exciting to be with? Or is it because the nice guys are thought of as being weak or soft?
Are you a guy who has had unfavorable success with the ladies, as a result of using the nice guy approach? Maybe you've taken the time to type and send out nice, polite, and thoughtful emails, only to not even receive a simple "thanks but no thanks" reply in return. Perhaps you've been a complete gentleman while out on dates, and that too has gotten you nowhere.
If you have an opinion on this topic that can either confirm or deny what I am saying here, then feel free to leave a comment. If you're a man who has been rejected for being a nice guy, I hope that you leave a comment. And if you're a woman who doesn't like nice guys for whatever reason, feel free to leave a comment as well.
Can a GOOD relationship, survive BAD sex? Lets say that you've met the person of your dreams... He's pleasing to the eye, he's successful, driven, ambitious, and gainfully employed. He's also funny, charming, intelligent, kind, and caring. All of your family and friends just love him. The two of you get along very well, and have so much fun together. But there's only one problem... The sex between you two just isn't very good. Your sex life with the man that you love, is just lame.
Can you find a way to make compromises in the bedroom, in order to maintain the relationship with him? Or, would you even want to maintain a relationship with a man, if the sex is not good? If you're in a good relationship with a wonderful person, but the sex is bad, does that mean all bets are off? Is bad sex a deal-breaker?
Ladies, whenever you click on a man's profile and view his photo album, and you see him standing there with no shirt on, what do you think to yourself? Are you turned off instantly by this, or do you happen to like it? Do you like to see several pictures of the man standing there shirtless in the bathroom, or would you rather have something left to the imagination?
Maybe you like to see mens' shirtless pictures, because you want to know what the man's physique looks like before you begin to talk to him? Or maybe you think the shirtless pictures are just distasteful?
Can you have a successful relationship or even a marriage, if you enter it without actually being in love with your partner? Are there other elements that are more important to a relationship? More important than love itself?
Let's say that you're dating someone that you have a lot in common with. You both want the same things out of life, have the same goals, a similar outlook, similar lifestyles, the same religious beliefs, you both are highly attracted to each other physically, and you both get along well, and just enjoy each so much in every way. Everything is great between you two, except for one thing... You're not in love with each other. Is it still possible for you to move forward with this person into a relationship, or even marry him/her? Or do you feel as if the love must be there first, before you make a serious commitment to this person?
Can two people who have so much in common but are not in love, enter a relationship or even marry each other? Can they just "cultivate" the love, and allow the love to develop later? My question is...
First, let me start by stating my position. I am all for marriage. I believe that if a man truly loves his woman and wants to be with her, then he should "put a ring on it" and make her his wife. I also believe that when a man does marry the woman he loves, this sets a positive example for the rest of the society.
But there are people out there that don't agree with this. They say things like, marriage is "just a piece of paper." But we know that isn't true. Because if marriage was just "a piece of paper," then why are so many people scared to sign it? The fact that there are so many people scared to sign this piece of paper, that tells me that marriage really is big deal, and it is much more than just a piece of paper. And some people will also say, "why buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free?" Now this one, I feel might actually have some truth to it. I guess if you are already living with your mate, and doing everything together, and functioning as a married couple would function, maybe there's no need to take that next step and make it official.
So what do some of you say? I want to know what you think. Are you all for marriage like myself? Or, is marriage overrated?
