It isn't difficult for me, either. I especially like to start a little conversation with little old ladies. People sometimes forget they exist, and when I talk to them, they really do enjoy it. I do, too!

Disagree (it's not hard, but it does seem that a lot of women I like aren't available, and due to the awkwardness thereafter, I just assume that all women I'm interested have a significant other unless they state otherwise. So, without any input from her, therein lies the difficulty in asking her out)

I agree with you, also. I'm still an old fashion woman who strongly believes in being approached. I could never, nor will I ever approach someone for a date.

14. Love at first sight exists.
Strongly disagree

I agree with you. How can you fall in love at first sight if you don't know how that person really is? It takes a while to know that person well. What I'm trying to say is, you have to come to know that person inside out before the falling in love can come into the picture.

In regards to #10, it really doesn't matter to me. If we bump into each other, we bump into each other. If I'm attracted in anyway, I'll persue it. But I don't really go out of my way to approach girls -- which might explain why I'm single, but oh well, I'm not in any hurry.

As for love at first sight... that's the most ridiculous thing in the world. Yeah, one can size someone up and conclude he/she appears to be an ideal partner. Though, I'd say that's more infatuation than anything else. So, like you said, you can't love someone until you get to know him/her.

I have to say on this one it doesn't make much difference. Some women are easy to approach and others are comfortable approaching. I am open to either of those possibilities.

11. When I first start dating a new person, I am more concerned with the physical relationship than with the emotional one.
Disagree
This doesn't mean I'm not open to a one night stand as long as both parties know that's what it is at the outset. But to lead a woman on just to have sex with her seems pointless if you don't really like her.

I agree. It's pretty difficult for me to start talking to strangers, but after forcing myself to do so, I just can't stop talking. Can't imagine how my mouth can talk so much without running out of saliva! Perhaps it's nervousness that causes me to do that.

Re: but then, how in the world ...
I've wondered the same thing. I generally have the idea, "If they like me, they'd talk to me", and there has been a few times I've really regretted not approaching someone, almost as if I missed fate. But overall, the method works somewhat.

I don't know, though. I guess those people would have to meet in situations that would force them to talk. Or maybe, those two types of personalities wouldn't work well together anyways.

I am an ass... it is true :P
1. If you're talking about romantic relationships... I'm casually seeing peoples as I don't have the resources (time, energy etc) for anything else right now.

2. Indifferent. I'm used to being alone. I was an only child, I'm an introvert, and an eccentric fellow with odd timing when it comes to women. If I find a good woman or she finds me and we like the idea of it, sure. Otherwise, I'm used to being alone.

3. Agree. I'm bad at small talk, and secretly I am shy. Seriously.

4. Disagree. I'm looking to see where it leads with the least level of expectation. This avoids frustration and disappointment.

5. Strongly agree. Yup. Easier to focus and noise levels are lower.

6. Strongly disagree. Tried it for years but got fed up of the "you're really nice and I'm sure you'll find a great woman for you, but..." So I thought I'd let the woman initiate things and I'll think about it. After all, according to gender stereotypes men supposed to be commitment-phobic. Ignore the stats showing that we initiate a significant majority of romantic relationships... :P

7. I've looked. Most of the sites are interesting business models. They make money from advertising for other products or services or by selling the idea of possibly meeting people. Wish I thought of it; I'd be rich.

8. No, I am not interested unless ninjas are involved.

9. Agree as it's a sign of respect gives me a chance to size them up quickly.

10. Agree. I still ask women on dates from time to time, I figure it's their turn. If they don't ask, more time for school and further developing my life; there are 6.7 billion people so I'm sure they'll be fine.

11. Depends on the relationship, the level of communicated expectation and whether or not I have any edible body paint.

12. Not currently in a romantic relationship. Why? Are you looking? You saucy minx!

13. I come from a very affectionate family background. It's in my nature to touch those around me. I wouldn't read into it.

14. Strongly disagree. It's idealized fantasy or intuitive pair-bonding. We see someone and respond to that reaction. Because we're sophisticated creatures we build dreams around them. I much prefer admitting that it's lust or curiousity.

15. Strongly disagree. I haven't declared a war or conquered a kingdom just to meet someone.

16. False

17. False

18. False

19. Agree provisionally. They happen through in/action, preparation, and orders of influence. I'm a big fan of making my own choices and not letting "fate" do it for me.

20. Strongly agree. See above.

21. My partner usually ends things or things just fizzle. Either way it usually involves some rote-speech that is often observed in movies or TV where a person doesn't actually want to say a choice is being made by them.

22. Strongly agree. I'm shy AND to be honest, I'm fed up of the rejection. Not the sincere rejection ('not interested') but the 'awww shucks you're nice and all but...'

23. Agree. Yup.

Ok. back to work for me...
