I'm sure you've met these kind of men mountain biking. Please remember they've got wives at home who are watching the kids, doing the laundry and cooking dinner. Don't tempt these mixed-up, adrenalin-powered, lost souls of men because it will cause heartache for many parties concerned and nobody will be happy in the end.

uh......ouch

Indeed. Keep 'em barefoot and pregnant...

In a episode in "Canadian air farce" a couple witch where on a Date, siting on a table in a restaurant . Beone "Hi Howe are you ,lousy weather etc etc they could not strike a conversation
Then her mobile phone was ringing , she had a conversation with someone when she was finish his mobile phone was ringing ,he had a good conversation with some one .
It ended up the couple had a good conversation siting one the same table in a restaurant over the mobile phone
Maybe people cannot communicate unless is on the computer or the mobile phone

Say what?

LOL!

Girl, if you truly think that either someone has been feeding you some bull or you've been walking around with blinders on, ESPECIALLY if you are involved in sports like Mountain Biking and Snowboarding.

I can practically guarantee that if you are involved in and (very important!) actually enjoying activities that younger men "typically" enjoy and you have your eyes and heart open, you will find someone in the group. He may have different looks than you imagined, he may have a different bank account or accent or any number of things than you imagined yourself paired off with... but it is a pretty sure bet that he is there.

Meanwhile, if you are doing it just to meet guys (I'm not saying you are, just that some are), they can smell and feel that pretense a mile away.

Looking at UK council estates; I don't think that theory is applicable anymore either.:)

Perhaps I'm misremembering things a bit but it seems the general theme from the guys who chimed in were something along the line of the friends needing to be aggressive but not "professional" aggressive, be willing to be open to the idea of barefoot and pregnant and / or some "extreme" sports... and a few other things.

The most consistent thing requested though was pictures...

So, Paulita, do you have pics of your (apparently dateless) friends which you can post on the internet? (As if most of us gals haven't already learned that posting pics of our actual selves openly on the internet is a pretty dumb thing to do... and as if most people above the age of 30 haven't already figured out that looks actually mean very little where the heart is concerned.)
