Here is the opening statement from a 29 year old woman's profile.  She lives in Central Russia, almost in Siberia. 

I want to say directly: I will not read your message and answer you if: you're looking for sex tourism, you're from Turkey, India, Arabic County. Nothing personal, at all. Please, don't waste > and your time. If you have food & beverage stereotype about Russians, like every Russian girl looking for man with big money from abroad and will be happy to make a family with 64 years old man. I can say only one about this- you're completely - wrong. And I guess advertising I have nothing to talk with you. I'm not type of this person. I can take care about myself and live my life in my way and really don't care about what people say.

Any thoughts....

I hope that's therapeutic for her, because it's likely not going to win her many admirers.  Unless she's a total smokeshow, of course. 

It's like putting in "No psychos", like someone is going to think to themselves, "I am a psycho, so clearly I should not answer this ad."  /shrugs.

I think psycho for the young woman is synonymous with those from arabic countries but easier to discern after contact.  :laugh:

Perhaps, some of us are reading too much into her profile ?

She's simply stating she's fed up with 'ol gits, guys after a jump - with no plans to build a relationship - and chaps from the Levant ...

bb, she does not need many admirers. She needs just one, the right one. Excluding men like you is a sensible, time saving, strategy.

Whilst there are, as you know, plenty of country girls willing to accept your *generosity* not all are so needy.

As with most marketing cases, I'd tend toward the notion that a marketer who seeks to clearly define the target market and to exclude those who are not part of that demographic group probably have the most honest and highest value offers.

Well, she clearly defines what she does not want, however not a word about what she'd like in a husband.

That makes sense. She is making sure, as far as she can, that certain types of people will not contact her. Very few middle aged, lonely, tossers are good at self analysis so she must be overt and curt.

The rest, the minority who form the residue can then make their case without the noise from the unhappy lonesters making promises they can't keep.

A normal, decent, bloke who doesn't fall into her reject group will likely do just fine.

She sounds bob on as long as you are not an old git, non-white or a sex tourist. Nothing wrong in defining what you dont want up front. I used to do similar with a domestic dating profile. I used to write something like "Women bigger than a size 8 or those with a collection of children by a variety of fathers need not apply". Apart from the hate mail from fat women with tribes of kids, it did used to flush out some rather decent prospects.

 :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: So that must of been 99.5% of the women on the site!

I would of added "No women in Primark ski pants, no women who smoke, especially roll ups, no women with tattoos , no women with rotten teeth, no women who cannot count further than 10"

That is exactly what nearly all women think today, they may not advertise it, but they all think along those lines. Its not 1998 anymore..
Its only a very very very small minority who would think about relocating and most of that minority have a reasonable life in any case and would have to Down grade to relocate overseas.

Why are you personalizing this to me Feefs

Whilst there are, as you know, plenty of country girls willing to accept your *generosity* not all are so needy.


"Oh, noes!  Oh, woes!  Feefs is indulging in negative speculation about my life again to make hisself FEEL better!"

Look, Andrew, I realize that you are simply desperate for me to be miserable and unhappy, but that's simply not going to happen.  Also, your antipathy for me is incredibly transparent, as well as unhealthy.  Perhaps it is time that you finally show the concern for your mental health as you did (again, finally) for your physical health, and seek treatment?

Well, she clearly defines what she does not want, however not a word about what she'd like in a husband.

Well, Omega1982 did say that was her "opening statement", so perhaps what she is looking for in a man appears later.  He doesn't show us that, so maybe he is saving her for himself?  :chuckle:

Do you think that the net-net worked out?  TTB shared similar experience and reported that he would get lots of hatemail from fatties about it, so one wonders if it's better to sift through that, or sift through the mail one might otherwise get from folks one might deem unsuitable.

Even if it did, one wonders if it might work as well from the distaff side, as men generally have three requirements in a woman: "Is she attractive to me?"  "Can I have a conversation with her?" and "Is she a warm person?"  So the question for her is, will her being upfront about it cut down on the men she is not interested in, while not being "offputting" for men she would prefer to write to her?  Toward that end, she might be better off describing the men she prefers, rather then men she doesn't.  Her phrasing, now, is indicative of some frustration/bitterness with her results, so far.

I think it worked just fine. It cut what was a barrage of replies from roll up smoking, Primark clad, lard arses with a technicolor collection of offspring sired by various undesirables down to a trickle of slim and decent looking women who got entirely where I was coming from and valued a bloke who didn't have the usual "any hole is a goal" mentality. The hate mail telling me how shallow I was was only a handful a day.

It flushed out the right physical type, and a few with a brain, but overall quality wasn't really marriage material. Hence Russia beckoned........

I 'personalised it' to you because you were replying telling how stupid and wrong headed she was when you quite clearly fall into her basket of undesirables. It isn't the first time that you have commented in similar manner when some woman's profile excludes you or where a woman dares to be at all picky about her mate. ;)

Believe me, I have no wish to see you unhappy and I am sure that you are the happiest bearded old bloke in your peer group. I am sure that one day you will find a suitable match for your particular needs. You only need one after all, yes? She must be somewhere in the wilds of Ukraine - just waiting for you.
