How To Tell When Men Aren't Dateable - #HowWomenThink
Dec. 14, 2018
by Cathy Harris, Love Coach and Advice Columnist
It's so ironic that I am writing this article almost at the end of the year. I think many of us, including myself, have a lot to work on in 2019, especially in our relationships, whether we are single or married. #HappyHolidays!!!
A Baby Boomer's Old School Values
This article is written for #AllWomen, especially
like myself who have found dating in the world today, especially on
to be a total new and #ConfusingConcept.
I am sure many men will find this article very interesting also. And hopefully, it will help them get some insight into #HowWomenThink.
As a Baby Boomer, 62, I came from a time when it was common for men and women to meet at parties or at dances or couples would get #FixedUp
on a blind date by a mutual friend.
Meetings in bars happened from time to time, but were considered somewhat dangerous for women.
I know many of you who have found your spouse, significant other, partner or mate, will read this article and make the remarks "Wow, I am glad I am not out there dating!"
But remember, you still need to keep reading and take in the information and forward it to the people you love because you have daughters, sons and other relatives that you would like to see make #GoodDatingDecisions. Remember, I am #OldSchool so my tips for women (and men) will have #OldSchoolValues.
A Book To Help You Save Your 'Libido'
If you enjoy what I am discussing in this article then chances are you will love my book
I totally went out of my genre ( category of books) when I wrote this book. However, my main reason for writing the book was to help singles and couples
aka "Sexual Drive"
As a Holistic and Natural Healer, National Non-GMO Health Educator for over 12 years, and a Former Federal Whistleblower (TheCathyHarrisStory.com), I felt I had to #SoundTheHorn on what's really happening to men and women today, especially in regards to their #SexualHealth.
The book will lay out #ActionPlans for
#Singles and #Couples in regards to their #SexualHealth and also will educate them on how to clean up their body and environment so that they can have an energetic, vibrant and #HappySexLife.
We watched Oprah for over 25 years and we learned that many couples are living in
so I advise many men and women do not wait until you are 50 to read the book. You really should read the book in your 20s so you can
-- whether you are a man or women.
define some folks. They live for it -- at least that's what many men say and live by. Imagine being on this earth
until you reach your 80s and 90s, and you lost your #SexualDrive in your 40s and 50s. It's happening every day because you are not putting your #HealthFirst.

of men by age 40 can no longer have sex because of issues with
Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
and other health issues. Also when new

heated car seats have also played a major role in killing a man's libido and causing other health issues.
And don't think you can run out and take
drugs because they are causing heart attacks, hearing loss and blindness. So the goal is to #KeepYourLibido - alive and well.
Say Goodbye To 'Motherhood'
Pay attention and don't be naive! There is a reason that tons of
centers) have sprung up all over the country, trying to help
conceive a child.
Laugh if you want but "Yes, GMOs (aka "Processed Foods") are the culprit. Pesticides and herbicides (heavy metals/neurotoxin)
(#Poison) that turns off the brain and nervous system is placed in the seeds made in a lab by #BiotechScientists that grow this toxic processed food.
Today there are several #Biotech Whistleblowers
that have come forward to say, "There wasn't any
conducted on GMO foods, which came on the scene in the late 80s.
Now they are finding out that GMO foods don't have any
, and is now poisoning not just plants and animals, but humans also.
And don't forget that #GMOsAreAirBorne, which means you breathe them in when you step outside of your home -- along with #Chemtrails (Air Force Whistleblower).
All these #HeavyMetals in your food and the environment don't just turn off the brain, but it can turn you into a #Zombie (or cocoon-like INACTIVE state) and "knock the fight right out of you." And this is why most folks don't speak up on issues today.
Also what you need to understand is that
#HeavyMetals found in GMOs and in the environment causes #ImpotencyInMen and #SterilityInWomen.
So this will be the #EndOfTheLine (for #BloodRelatives) for many women who thought they would be mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, etc.
You may still be able to #AdoptAChild, if their mothers are eating good food and have cleaned up their environments, however,
surrogacy might not be a #FutureOption and who knows how safe it is to have #IVFTreatments to get pregnant.
We need to #WakeUp and #TakeActionNow by educating ourselves about this #ChangingWorld. It is absolutely too many people in the world so they (aka "The Government) are trying to stop people from #Procreating (producing offsprings or having babies) and it is working.
at DearCathy.com, I thought by now that I would have done more to market my FREE
on facebook, but since I just relocated to a new city, Orlando, FL, I needed to focus on fun and business opportunities in my new city.
That group isn't going anywhere and so far there are some #QualitySingles on the group (including myself) so forward a #Picture and #YourProfile (sample above) to me at AskCathy@DearCathy.com or facebook message me to be posted in the group for FREE.
GMO food today has made everyone basically #Lazy. Many people want to find #TrueLove, however, many, both men and women, don't want to do the work to find it.
Then once they find the true loves of their lives, they won't put in the work to keep it going. This is very problematic
today in many cultures -- especially black communities.
Therefore, in our Empowerment Platform as a "Love Coach" and "Advice Columnist" at
CathyHarrisInternational.com, we will be offering a series of workshops, seminars, webinars (virtually) on how to find Mr. and Mrs. Right and how to keep your relationships #GoingStrong.
Can You Find True Love on Social Media Sites (Facebook.com, Instagram.com, etc.)?
Some people have stated that there is no way they can be on facebook (or instagram) because of folks hiding in the shadows -- making all types of negative, derogatory, bullying remarks about them.
No one should be on facebook.com, instagram.com (where all the Millennials are) and other social media websites unless they have #ThickSkin.
It's been even hard for me at
times being on social media, but as a
I use the platform to #MarketMyBusiness, my Empowerment and Publishing Company, AngelsPress.com, where I have released 26 non-fiction books and especially my new dating website
However, I have gotten all types #SpeakingGigs and have formed many #BusinessAlliances and #StrategicPartnerships so I value being on social media.
My New Community On Facebook.com
Because I don't own a TV, some nights I lay in bed and look at the #BeautifulPictures and #Videos from around the world or just laugh at #FunnyPictures and #FunnyVideos.
But most of all I am able to pick up some

Think about it -
#SocialMedia has leveled the #PlayingField for many folks and even though we now have the arsenal to fight back, #WeDont because the government -- as they were building all these

by turning off their brains with GMOs, Chemtrails, etc.
Facebook Blocking vs. Cathy Harris Blocking
I am not writing this article to find any #PotentialSuitors
because I don't need any help in that department. However, I am using what has happened to me to educate women on some of the many #GamesThatMenPlay
and what to look out for when they are approached by the
, especially on the internet (facebook, instagram, etc.).
Facebook is not the only group out there #BlockingFolks. There is #FacebookBlocking and #CathyHarrisBlocking.
I went on my
the other day on facebook and was almost shocked at how large it was.
I do end up blocking a lot of men, especially when I am already in a relationship and I just don't want to be bothered or disrespected by them.
I bet a lot of you were wondering why I have a #DatingService at BlackMatchmakerClub.com and I am #Single. I am only 2 months out of a 3 year relationship. So I am currently #SingleByChoice. There is a difference.
I have #SeveralSuitors that I was interested in -- in my #BlockedCommunity, but with my #OldSchoolValueSystem -- they came off #Too Aggressive (#TooSexual, #TooQuick) so I had to block them. So again, men (and women) need to keep their conversations especially online professional.
One or two might eventually be let out on parole. Others I have had to
block them for the
second time because of their
I don't cheat in a relationship and I expect my man not to cheat either. I believe #IAmEnough. If he can keep up with all my desires, needs and wants, he should not have time to look at another women. That's how I bring it in a relationship.
When I am in a relationship, #ILoveHard. When I say "I Love Hard." It means I give everything and most of all, at 62,
Besides men that have reached out to me for a date, other
#BlockIndividuals are people that don't have the #SameValueSystem as I do and I did not spend 62 years on this earth in a fog.
I know exactly what we as individuals on this planet need to be doing, so again,
Many of these individuals include those in favor of starting Non-profits, Network and Multi-Level Marketing ventures, people who were disrespectful to me and others, and those that are #BuckWild on the internet. These are the individuals that every other post is about #Sex.
I have 9 groups on facebook and 4 facebook pages or timelines. If you join any of my groups in my community, which I have entitled "Pass The Torch Community," with a different #ValueSystem, you will #GetBlocked because "You can't bullshit a bullshiter." Yes I said that!
This is how I have been able to stay on facebook and deal with all these individuals of all types of backgrounds and value systems. I can't control any
other groups where the conversations are #TotallyOutOfControl.
But if you want to continue to bring great information into #MyCircle and be a part of #MyCommunity, you need to be respectful to me and others -- first and foremost.
I am now in the process of #PurgingFolks from my timeline and putting new people on there. And just because you are not on my timelines (I have 4 timelines), it doesn't stop you from being in one or more of my 9 groups (located at the end of this e-newsletter) so join us today for #StrikingConversationsandSolutions. We welcome you!
Because I will have all these new individuals on my timelines, it means many new people will be reaching out on
People already send me absolutely everything!
Sometimes I get over 30, sometimes 40, facebook messenger messages a day and people always add me into their conversations on there and it's just too much so I have to
or just don't respond back.
As a business owner, my #PetPeeve is people who don't return phone calls, emails or texts, so I don't like being put in a position where I can't respond back to folks, so hopefully after this article people will understand all the facebook messenger messages are
#Overwhelming. I see everything but I don't have time to respond back.
Unless I am familiar with someone, I don't and won't answer all the messages, so therefore, reach out to me through my company,
or email: Cathy@cathyharrisinternational.com, if you really have something important to say.
Just remember that everything you say on
by social media platforms, and especially by the government, so they will show up at your door if you say the #WrongThing.

unlike many women today, I do know what I want out of this thing called #Life. I know what I will tolerate and what I won't tolerate -- in my life and in my social media community.
If you are contacting me to use my #ConsultingServices or to form some type of #BusinessAlliance or #StrategicPartnership, then just say so.
When people come into #MyCircle or when they contact me on facebook messenger, by phone, text, email or other social media sites, they usually go into my

m being approached both on and offline with #PotentialSuitors.
I do believe women should make a #ShortList
when it comes to finding their significant other. You know exactly what will and won't make you happy -- so why spend time with someone that won't make you happy or someone who is really #NotDateable.
Women have boxes that they #NeedChecked when they see someone that they might be interested in. This is what I need as a 62 year old Single black woman:
- He must be taller than me: I am 5'8" (68 inches). I like men at least 6 feet. But I will go shorter, but not much.
- He need to have a nice smile: If you have issues with your teeth, that's a #DealBreaker. If men can't afford to get their teeth fixed, and they are out there dating, that's a tell-tale sign of a guy not finanically secure. So move on.
- He needs to have nice skin: The skin is the #LargestOrgan of the body. You can tell if a person is healthy or not (not always but many times) by looking at their skin. If they take care of their skin, it means there is a good chance they take care of their body.
- He needs to be slim (or not big) around the middle: Most men need to be around 40 inches or smaller (women 35 or smaller) around the waist to be healthy. Men never had babies so it's a big #TurnOff, when they carry too much weight around the middle. It's not just called a #BeerGut. It's called #UnhealthyGut. And when they are too big around the middle, it's a tell-tale sign of how active they are.
That's what I want and is looking for but chances are we might have to work on each other - our smile, skin issues and
even waistline, but still know what you want and need upfront. And if men aren't willing to
and especially get off medications, then you might have to
, otherwise, you might end up being just as unhealthy as them because

My first advice for all women is not to allow men to start calling you
and other words they think you want to hear -- too soon.
These are words that should not be thrown around and should be used when men get serious about you -- not after one or two conversations. So don't allow this!
Some men will find it attractive, that you approach them in this manner because they will know you are probably approaching other guys in the same manner -- so to them --
I am a professional and run my own
so I tell men to call me #Cathy
, even if they are trying to approach me for dating.
I am also a part of the #MeToo movement and when I was in the workplace working with mostly men for over 20 years, I filed a #SexualHarassment complaint - so I know how I want to be approached.
And teach your daughters also to demand respect from men.
When you allow this too soon, you are actually
in the relationship from the very beginning so before handing over your power, investigate these suitors to see if they are even a #GoodMatch
See if they can be a #King to your #Queen.
Look on his timeline. If you see others that you know or that you have befriended ask them about that person. Many probably won't answer you though --

#BootyCalls. I can't believe we live in a time where you can just reach out to someone -- anyone for a

#Proclaim his love for you.
First of all this happened to me after working for 11 years at the Atlanta Airport. After my best friend, a male, retired, he announced that he was in love with me.
My question for him was, "What are we going to do with your wife - bury her in the backyard?
I never allow myself to go for
and even if he was
e wasn't my type. He dranked alcohol entirely too much for me. My father was an alcoholic and I swore I would never get with one.
You talk to some of these guys on the internet in
three conversations and many will think you are in a
#SeriousRelationship with them. I call them
#PhantomBoyfriends and these are the ones that end up
#GettingBlocked in my community.
I talked to one guy for years on the internet then all of a certain out of the blue, he announces that he is in love with me and wanted to leave his wife for me.
I am not the type of woman that breaks up relationships. The only thing a
#MarriedMan can do for me is to point to a
#SingleMan. So eventually, he got
#Blocked -- plus he wasn't my type.
Make it a point to stay away from
#MarriedMen. I don't care how
#FinanciallySecure they are. I know many times they lie to you and they don't wear rings or they will tell you they are separated.
But as soon as you find out a guy is
#Married, leave the relationship. Don't be another woman's pain. You wouldn't want her doing that to you.
I was talking back and forth with this guy about our businesses -- a few times, then all of a sudden, he asked me if I had a PayPal.com account. I responded yes -- then he asked me to send him $25 because he said someone busted out his car window.
Of course he ended up #GettingBlocked. So many of these internet friends or so-called #PhantomBoyfriends will try to use you for money -- so
One day I was talking to a guy in the movement. We were talking about
and helping black folks, then out of the blue, he makes the statement,
I had no idea this guy was even interested in me. I wasn't interested in him. I was only interested in
and helping black folks so he got
. Again, don't waste your time with these #PhantomBoyfriends on social media.
Watch Men (and Women) #GetFreaky On the Weekends or Holidays
I was counseling
to a young man in his early 30s, younger than my daughters, on the internet by going back and forth on facebook messenger not too long ago. I probably spent an hour talking with him and educating him on some facts of life.
When Friday night came, his tune totally changed. He started making all types of
#UnprofessionalSexualRemarks to me.
So this was his intentions the whole time. He was interested in me the entire time and I did not even realize it. You can imagine what I did next -- yes
What is it about weekends on facebook and probably Instagram? Some of these guys that are #NotDateable will get drunk or high on weekends (and holidays) and say anything to you.
If you see a guy that you secretly admire, watch his posts on the weekends and holidays.
If they get a
, then the #RealMale (#TheirRealPersonality)
is coming out or they are drunk or high.
So unless he is in the #SexBusiness, then you know just how he is going to come off to you -- probably #Sexual and #Disrespectful
so these are the guys you want to watch out for and #Block.
Also when women do the same thing, men, and even friends and relatives, might be watching them. If you come off like that on the internet, #GoodMen will not want to get with you, so you might be messing up a good thing. And many, both men and women, will look at you and think #Desperation.
Again, there is a time to do all that #SexualTalk -- behind closed doors when you get into a relationship, but keep it offline. And I know you can't be still in anyone's workplace doing this because most jobs go all over the internet to investigate you before they hire you and even use social media to come up with reasons to fire you.
Facebook has almost turned into a #PornSite, depending on which groups you are on.

live in a
today -- because women allow men to get away with #Disrespecting them
too much, especially on #SocialMedia. Back in my day of course we did not have the internet, but we also demanded that men respected us.
And this is why Police Officers no longer investigate rapes and sexual assaults and many especially higher ups (including military personnel) are involved in
#PedophileRings, Organ Harvesting
Also many women get raped on weekends and holidays (especially 4 day weekends), when #MenLetLoose and get #BuckWild. You especially want to watch yourself if you live around military bases, when they return back from weeks of training in woods.
When they get back from training all they want to do is #Party and #PickUpWomen so check to see if there are any military bases close to where you live. And make it a point to stay away from these facilities.
Many men especially on holidays, even buy the #PlanBPill and pour it down women's throats when they rape them, so they don't get pregnant. Therefore, be careful when you are out there partying.
We heard for years about all the women in colleges being raped. Nothing ever came of those stories, but a few lawsuits here and there so it's probably still happening today. Talk to your daughters, especially before they go off to college.
Of course you can't leave your drink unattended, even with someone you think is a friend, especially a male friend. Nowadays, men can blow #DateRapeDrugs directly into your face -- rendering you into a #ZombieLike state.
With #NewDateRape drugs like #DevilBreath (where you turn into a zombie), you won't remember a thing if you wake up at all. Many are waking up sex trafficked or missing organs. These guys are especially #WatchingYouOnline so don't post too much online information about your plans or trips.
Also take self defense classes, shooting lessons, get some maze, a taser, a body alarm, learn how to use a knife and watch how you dress, especially when you are alone.
We live in a new day and time and many women are even
Lyft drivers so never get in these cars drunk. And if you drive for these companies, try not to drive at night. Always travel with a friend and get out of these cars when your friend gets out.
Two Types of Men - #Decent and #Indecent Men

can be found in both
groups and the
boundaries between these two groups can overlap so we must not try to #SimplifyMatters by saying that some men are #Angels and some are #Devils.
Dating is so
today, but if you can find out a lot about these individuals online on facebook messenger, texting, email or on the phone before the first date might make
everything much easier.
Before a first date is even over and before we know anything about who that person is sitting across from us, we're already wondering whether there's a potential future here. It's a lot of pressure!
To alleviate some anxieties of dating and relationships, many people have
#DatedDown in order to keep the upper hand. Think about it -- looking back at your past relationships, how many of your partners were you hotter or smarter or more successful than?
How many were hotter, smarter, or more successful than you? We've all been on one side or the other, because when it comes to relationships, things aren't always quite equal.
Don't #Settle for something just because society says it's okay. Men have dated younger women for years because society says it's okay.
Well if you feel a man is too old for you and that's all you been running into lately is #DirtyOldMen, who can barely get off the couch unless you lite a stick of dynamite under it -- then #DateDown.
For instance, I recently talked to a guy 65 years old on facebook messenger.
I am 62, but know I need to #DateYounger for this simple reason.
I am not trading in
#OneOldMan (my last relationship) for another old man -- with their
#OldManWays and that
#OldManEnergy. I am too young and vibrant for that -- not the second time around.
Check Out His Energy
Many people get together and end up happy because they have the #SameType of energy. Remember there are older men with #AYoungMans
energy (I am not just talking about sexually) and older men with
energy. So make sure you know the difference.
You need to figure out when dating an older man does he have
energy because he is unhealthy or because he is just
You should not have to give up dancing and all the other
physical activities that you enjoy just because you get with an
older guy, so again, he might have
#OldMans energy, especially if he doesn't want to try something new.
These are the men that are
#SetInTheirWays and they have one belief system, "It's their way or the highway." So be careful of men that have just given up on life and are not going to put in the work to entertain or keep you. Avoid these men at all cost!
Be Careful of Financially Secure #OlderMen
Many men today are more
others, especially older men. Just keep in mind no woman is going to want to give up living and be a #Nursemaid to any man.
I had a friend who waited until she was 50 years old to get married and her husband was financially secure. The man she married was also 50 years of age. Six months into their marriage, he ended up on #KidneyDialysis.
She politely took him to California so his family could take him into #KidneyDialysisCenters 3 days a week for 5 hours at a time. Again, women should not and will not be a #NurseMaid to these men, unless they were married or with them for years.
Men need to be careful because many women today are #GoldDiggers and they are looking for #SugarDaddies. But when you get with these older men later on in your life,
I don't care how much money he has.
#LifeIsTooShort, so stop giving up a part of yourself to a man just because he is more financially secure -
What You Need To Know About #Introverts, #Extroverts, #BetaMen, and #AlphaMen
Look at the #Traits

Try to date

Also do this with #Beta and #AlphaMen. Beta men are #MommaBoys and usually women have to step up to the plate and be the #Leaders in the household. You will probably have Mother-in-Law issues with #MommaBoys.
On the other hand #AlphaMen are more into taking care of the family and being the head of the family, but many can be #HeadStrong.
Being a headstrong person is not always a bad thing.

Smile To Find 'True Love'
Again, look for different traits in men. If your man did not make you smile in your last relationship, look for a man that will make you smile - a man with a #SenseOfHumor.
In order to get with someone today - #Smile. Because we live in such a #DarkTime (#Trumpism), most adults only smile 4 times a day -- so #Smile.
Men love to see #WomenWhoSmile. It's attractive to them. If you are #MeanMugging (or have a sour look on your face everytime men see you) they will keep it moving. They will think you are going to be #TooMuchWork. They will move on to a woman who is smiling because this looks attractive to them.
Give Women Time To Heal After A Breakup
Believe me if a man, a potential #NewMan truly want you, he will do
what you ask and be patient after you have had a break up with your late mate.
Men are totally different than women. Many men will go from relationship to relationship, because many don't want to be by themselves or they want to be taken care of by a woman.
We all know that Single Women

Women are no longer defined by that relationship so they need time to heal before moving on to another relationship. So #DontPushThem or you #MightLoseThem. Just hang back and #BeSupportive. Be a #SoundingBoard for them and when they are ready, you will get the #GrandPrize.

balloons, jewelry, chocolates (unless they are watching their weight) -- the whole nine yards -- and do it often, not just on holidays.
If you don't have a lot of money, you need to get another part-time job or start a business. You can also take her out to less expensive things such as a picnic or a walk in the park or on the beach. Love doesn't have to be that expensive.
Women just want to be close to you.
Many men don't even like saying the words
"I Love You,"
but women need to hear those words. They fall in love between their ears -- with what you say to them.
She basically, just want you to spend time with her. But if men don't make an effort to be with a woman -- to show her he cares, then the relationship is sure to fail.
If you work a lot and you use your time off to be with the fellas or family members (brothers, etc.), then she will feel left out so again, women just want to see you making an effort to be alone with them.
All women love affection. They want long,
like Rhett Butler did to Scarlet O'Hara in the movie "
Gone With the Wind
Women love to be kissed, hugged and squeezed
and other things that comes with relationships.

Back in the day we used to say, "Why Buy The Cow When You Can Get the Milk Free." This idiom is usually used to refer to men who don't want to get married, when they can get all the benefits of marriage without getting married.

Dating Is Not A Competition
We live in a time where women today are #CompetingWithMen. Dating should never be viewed as a #Competition, so many women and men need to work on how they
You see tons of men getting beat up on social media by women. This is not only embarrassing to men, but it shows how the #AngerOfWomen has just escalated to the point of no return.
This is mostly because of the foods today (GMO Processed Foods), which turns the brain off and also causes #Anger.
Women are made differently than men, we don't have the same #UpperBodyStrength that men have so personally, I would never try to fight a man.
Not just #PhysicalStength, but I do feel that men can be #IntimidatedByWomen and this can cause friction in relationships. For instance, my last mate was a #BigMuscularTypeAAlphaMale.
Even though this man was talented on all fronts, I was also talented on all fronts.
I do feel he was #Envious of the fact that I was able to grow crops in our 3 raised bed gardens -- and everything he touched #Died.
Understand, I had attended gardening classes for 2 months so this is why I had the #Upperhand, when it came to gardening, but it still caused friction in our relationship.
We both were raised up on farms and neither of us in the very beginning of
#OurRelationship and starting our garden knew how to grow foods. The problem was I admitted it and attended classes and he being a #MascelineTypeAAlphaMale, kept pretending.
So if you get with these types of men, that want to keep pretending and keep lying to themselves and are not open with you -- #KeepItMoving -- #MoveOn, again, #AllMyExsLiveInTexas.
Men Are Visual - They Want To See A 'Full-Body' Picture (Pic) Upfront
Some women are not comfortable showing their entire body online. I always tell women to take a full-body shot along with face shots to be posted on our dating website, at BlackMatchmakerclub.com, but make sure of course you have clothes on.
You can do this with your #Smartphone (Samsung or Iphone) today. Buy a $6.00 #SelfieStick from Amazon.com. Stand in front of a white wall in your home and put some light on you and take the picture or go outside in the sunlight and have some greenery or a different color from your outfit in the background.

If you are only putting a facial shot
or a shot of half your body online, it will be hard for you to meet someone online because unless you eventually put out a

Make sure, however, you don't get in the habit of forwarding pictures around the internet with hardly nothing on.
Be careful sending pics around the internet, especially #SexyPictures.
If you have pictures on your timeline, tell them to go there and see what you look like. They already know what you look like, otherwise, they would never have reached out in the first place.
wanted me to forward him a
#FullBodyPic right away because again men are #Visual.
They are not going to waste time talking to you on facebook, instagram and other social media sites unless they can see a #FullBodyPic.
On the other hand, women will date not so sexy men with good careers, but men
#WontDate unattractive women because men are even more visual than women.
Men like to be able to think about what
they have waiting for them at home or even brag to their friends that they have a

Watch Catchwords Like #GoodCatch
Motivational Speaker Anthony Robbins said it best when he made the statement "Couples need to treat each other just like they did when they first starting dating. Then they should not have any issues." However, it's easier said than done and couples need to have the same #ValueSystem.
#DontSettle ladies because you know upfront what you want and what you are looking for. Don't fall for some old #JiveTalkingNegro, who swear up and down he has his shit together.
He will tell you at the very beginning of your communication that he is a #GoodCatch.
This is just what he thinks about himself, but it doesn't mean that he is right for you.
You want a man to be
(just like you need to be
, but some like to brag about themselves. It's great meeting these men on facebook because you want to be in a position to look on their timelines, at their pictures, videos and see other things they are involved in.
Just keep in mind many of these pictures and videos could be #Old -- maybe as much as 20 years ago.
He might have been all that back in the day, but now he might be talking to you from a Senior citizen home or center, where he is #Immobile -- so investigate if you are interested in being with someone.
Look for the Lies To Start Rolling In
When a man says he is a
, my antennas go all the way up right away and my
kick into gear. From then on I dissect everything that he says afterwards and
One of the
#BiggestMistakes that men make is they don't know that women
#NeverForget what they have said to them. They have ears like
#AnElephant, so don't try to change your story - fellas
If he go back and forth on facebook messenger, texting, email or the phone -- when he lies, it means he now believe his lies to be
#TheTruth so continue to count how many times he lies to you, then prepare to
For instance, one guy told me at least 5 lies in back and forth conversations that we had in about 30 minutes on facebook messenger so I was able to
#RuleHimOut as a
#PotentialSuitor right away.
He said he was covered by dental services from
VA.gov (Veteran's Administration), but he was in the military around the same time I was in the military and for the same length of time, 3 years, so naturally I knew from the jump he was lying.
The military only cover dental treatment for people who were lifers, unless someone was injured directly while serving on
#ActiveDuty and he never said that in our conversation, so I knew upfront he was lying.
The reason the dental issue came up is his front teeth were broke, which is really a
#DealBreaker to me. I just wanted to see him explain to me how he can be out there dating with a front teeth broke.
I can see if it happened yesterday and he was in the process of fixing it, but he came up with an excuse that I was able to verify right away. So pay attention and even go back over the conversations and investigate what he said to you --
Pick Up on the First Lie and Look for More Lies
The first lie was the damaged front teeth and dental issue and the second lie was #HeJustGaveUpSmoking. I must have been off my game that day because usually when men reach out to me about dating on facebook, the first question out of my mouth is #DoYouSmoke, etc.
Then I look at their pictures on their timeline, then I ask about their height, weight, physical activities, etc. I was trying to see how active he was and he
said he is still quite athletic for his age, 65.
However, he said he just gave up smoking only 5 years earlier, so to me that was a #RedFlag. Again, smoking is a
so if he just gave up smoking in his 60s, it probably means he still smokes.
And there is no way he is going to be involved in all those physical activities smoking cigarettes, so he is lying about how physical he is also. Again, #PlayDetective if you are truly looking for #TrueLove, #Eliminate, #Next. You can also pay around $39 to do a background on someone. Many roommate services do this.
I had a website where you pay $20 a month and it would tell you everything about someone. It told whether they had been in jail, filed a bankruptcy and other private info.
Men try to get you to prove to them that you
to be with them and it needs to be the other way around.
First of all this guy made the statement that kind of pissed me off and
was all the way up. He said, "I don't usually date anyone around your age."
Again, he was 65 and I am 62. Right away men are trying to get you to prove that you are
#WorthyOfBeingWithThem because you are an older woman. You don't have to prove to him that
#OlderIsBetter. This is a game they play.
I never hid my age from him. I told him that right away and if you go back over any of my postings, unlike many women today, I am not embarrassed to say my age
So my age was never a secret, but he wanted to
play this game with me and I just wasn't up to it, especially when I found several other statements he made that did not match up.
Listen to Even More Lies
I am currently traveling around the country moving every 6 months to a year. I currently stay in a Studio/Efficiency Apartment for Seniors over 55 and older and will be moving in 10 months.
However, I can afford a much larger place or house, but
while I travel I do downsize. When I told this 65 year old guy about where I was staying, he responded that he had tried to move into a "Senior Trailer Community",
but he made $100 too much, so in other words, he did not have a cushion in his Senior years so I picked up on that.
Plus I don't want to end up with a man in a
trailer park. So this man was bringing nothing but his
to the table. So listen for the
when you are conversating with these men on the internet. They lie but not that good.
Again, all you have to do is talk to these guys
and they will tell you what you need to know. Keep the conversations professional. Once the conversations turns
, you have lost the upper hand.
Personally, I would not spend over 24 hours (48 max) conversating back and forth with anyone unless I was really interested in them, so
#PlayDetective right away and
I did not block him right away. I allowed him to keep talking and looked for even more lies. Again, I found at least 5 lies that this guy told me in 30 minutes going back and forth on facebook messenger then #IBlockedHim the next day.
If he told me these many lies in 30 minutes, can you imagine what else he was lying about. He was also probably an #Alcoholic too and probably did not have a car.
A man can get another job, even if he has 3 jobs already and buy himself a car. There are all types of #LegalSideGigs
that men can do today to make #ExtraMoney as they move forward and start a business.
If men are #Sick or #Broke, then they are #NotDateable -- not at that time so stop wasting your time with these types of men. They will want you to come into their relationships and help them heal, but again they need to #HealThemselves before they put themselves out there on the market.
If he doesn't have a 5 or 10 year plan, then he is not right for you. Don't get caught up with men that lie to you. Find out early on what they are lying about and #MoveOn. There are plenty of #GoodFish in the sea.
Can You Survive A Long Distance Relationship?
Many of these relationships on facebook and other social media sites, might be
long distance relationships
. Long distance relationships are especially hard so if you don't want to be in a
know that up front.
And don't just hop up and relocate to another city just to be with a guy. Make sure you check him out way ahead of time.
Sometimes you #Waste weeks, months or even years being in these types of relationships.
If he doesn't attempt to meet you face to face by coming to your city or sending you a #PlaneTicket (like they would have done back in my day) after knowing you for a while -- then #MoveOn
because chances are he might just be stringing you along -- or
Don't continue these conversations forever.
After going back and forth on facebook messenger, text or email for at least one to two weeks, it's time to talk by telephone. Then the
is to meet
But before you ever get to the phone, #Investigate what they say to you by going back and looking at the messages (facebook messenger, texts, emails) and if it is not what you want to hear -- don't give them your phone number, instead #BlockThem and
Again, #LifeIsTooShot and there are tons of #PotentialSuitors waiting to #DateYou. However,
#DontPursueThem, let them #PurseYou because you are bringing what they need to the table.
