I'll disagree with your disagreement. What I said was in the context of Chas's comment that there's a whole bunch of half-naked firemen pinin' in the fjords 'cos they can't find love. I was saying it's easy enough to attract a partner. If those jokers are what they're cracked up to be they should be able to do it, *even if* they have to resort to half-baked renditions of other people's poetry.

Actual poetry is good stuff and not just for getting into people's pants.

Poetry can be lovely, totally agree.

Perhaps you are right. However if firemen in fjords cant think of any way to attract a mate...perhaps they are better off not doing so Tongue

For those not capable of reciting poetry there is always alcohol and music. Some of these people drive "Fjords." Laugh out load

RE: How Sweet is This?
Sure, attracting a *sex* partner is pretty easy - red lipstick, push up bra, skinny jeans, heels and alcohol = done.

As far as dating - Physically and intellectually attractive to me? Few and far between. Most men that fall into that category aren't single - because they've already attracted a partner. Thus my dilemma. I have no shortage of men knocking on my door, but I'm not looking to settle. At present the only single man I even know that actually *meets* my standards is a Christian and knows I'm an atheist - meaning I don't meet his standards. Although I'm not so sure I want to get mixed up with a Christian again, anyway.

Ok. I take that back. There's a man I once knew in Birmingham that could garner my interest - he's the total package - I get the impression he's a closeted atheist - he attended the church I worked for. I had to remind myself I had an engagement ring on my finger whenever we interacted (should have been my sign to break off my engagement). But he's in Birmingham, and it's been years since we've been in touch. Granted I'll eventually be moving there, but that's a ways off. That's the thing with relationships - timing is everything, as is geographical location.

From my personal experience, writing a poem for a girlfriend isn't always a good idea.

It can be, just not always.

Alcohol drunk to excess leads to some interesting results yes...

Regrettable,yes. Besides if I have to drink to think a girl looks good, then I should not be with her period.

It's to loosen inhibitions and quell the anxiety. Not make them look better - or at least for my experience. That, and it makes me not care that the guy I'm chatting up is dumb as a bag of rocks.
