Scream in the dark
« on: January 23, 2016, 02:52:37 PM »
Found this on a pretty 30 yo woman's profile on Mamba. Made me wanna laugh and cry at the same time. This is why WM still have a chance with RW.

"Я приятная во всех отношениях девушка.Каждый раз я слышу это от вас) Но я хочу большего, чем просто переспать1-2 раза в неделю, и разбежаться как в море корабли до следующей случки. Эти предложения уже набили оскомину.Неужели кроме письки своей и стакана чая нечего предложить?"

Translation: I am a nice girl all around. I hear this from you guys every time ) But I want something more than just meet for sex 1-2 times a week and go our separate ways like two ships in the sea until the next mating. I have a bad taste in my mouth already from such proposals. Is there nothing else besides your dingy and a cup of tea you can offer?

Its exactly the reason so many young women sign up to foreign dating sites only to delete their profiles within a week!

Thats not the only reason, most are tired of idiots and bullshit..and old grand papas trying to chat them up.

Just the hardcore that stay.

hmmm since when did Mamba become a "foreign dating site"? And another thing, your statement that "many young women sign up to foreign dating sites" is highly inaccurate.

You could say Facebook was just a US social engagement site a few years back but has now become International. Its a little like VK was created for the Russian CIS countries but was heading to become more International targeting all European countries. Mamba is exactly the same a Russian site created for Russians originally but now used Internationally by many countries. You could very easy say Mamba is used by many guys as a foreign dating site or a site to connect with Russian women seeking marriage, just like you use the site?

Many young women sign up to foreign dating sites? "Foreign dating sites" I am referring to web sites where FSU women can connect with Western guys.
What I said is 100% accurate each week thousands of single women from FSU countries sign up to such sites. As I stated earlier the vast majority only stay a week or two.

The number of profiles on Mamba from Ladies in Ukraine that stated "no foreigners" was crazy. Part of the reason I sacked it off, the other part being the translation of how the words sound into Roman characters. Stood no chance of translating that

I don't know how attractive she is, but she's finding out that, now that she's 30 and wants "commitment" it's men who hold the cards.  Why?  At her age, even if she's quite presentable, she's not going to have the same appeal as a 22 y.o. woman would have to men, generally, as we are biologically driven to chase young and attractive women, because those traits are indicators of fertility.

So,  bb,  how's it going with YOUR 22 year old girl?

Lets be right about who really holds the cards,  eh? 20 years and counting...   :'(

Fantasy is fine,  a necessary part of a healthy mental ecology and everything, but at some point reality bites. I'd lay odds that you would have ended your quest much sooner if you got hold of the realities.

What you see there is a common enough complaint of women on mamba.ru, in truth pretty much any dating site. Lots of fantasists,  weekend Romeos and blokes seeking a bigger better deal and not so many real men. At an age when women in Russia are looking to settle down she is seeking to sort wheat from chaff. You self selected as chaff,  again.

You want a woman to settle down with then look at women willing to consider a middle aged man such as yourself and who is willing to make a long term commitment. That's not many 22 year olds,  no matter how many such you have rented over the past few years. Here the proof is in the pudding. After so many years if your proposition was well founded don't you think that you'd have succeeded? We can exclude all the ones who you thought promising targets because,  well, if they were as promising as you hope,  you'd be tucked up with your little darling already,  but you ain't,  and that's the reality.

Worse yet,  the older you become the less you have to offer to the women you fantasise about. Your value is declining by the day.

We could replace 'you' with 'one' but the message remains the same. It makes sense to be realistic,  just as the woman Ed quotes is being. She might even have been a woman who rejected you a few years ago. Problem is that now she won't consider a bloke of your age as you ain't good marriage material.

Life of this girl is a pure horror.
In her place I would prefer do not have relationships with men at all.
There are so many interesting things in this life to do besides such traumatizing sex!!

There are so many interesting things in this life to do besides such traumatizing sex!!


A brand new store has just opened in New York City that sells Husbands. When women go to choose a husband, they have to follow the instructions at the entrance:

"You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are 6 floors and the value of the products increase as you ascend the flights. You may choose any item from a particular floor or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you CANNOT go back down except to exit the building!"

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.

The 1st floor sign reads: Floor 1 - These men have jobs.

The 2nd floor sign reads: Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

The 3rd floor sign reads: Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids and are extremely good looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the 4th floor and The sign reads: Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help with Housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!" Still, she goes to the 5th floor and The sign reads: Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, help with Housework and Have A Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the 6th floor and the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

 :ROFL:  :ROFL:  :ROFL:
Thank you. I really enjoyed this story.
I think it is not fair to come to this store only ones. You know, everything may happens in this life.....
My main criteria in choosing a man is simple: this men must love me.
Just to pretend to be picky, I would add another criteria: my man must be generous.
Generous with time, money, emotions, adventures, smiles...
That's all. Of course, there is no floor with such man.
How it happened that I am married?
