    I just got off manhunt.net looking for a hook up for tonight. Of course, there are guys online who are confused as to the nature of the website, and they occasionally get online looking for LTR on a hook up site, somewhat naively; I don't mind, cause I've done that myself, with small measurable success.

    But I logged an hour ago to my surprise, that some guys are using Valentine's Day to suddenly show concern for their, "Mr. Right" and LTR's as some kind of bait line. I can understand guys being heartbroken, or just in need of a poor substitute for a relationship in a hook up, like I'm doing. It's just really degrading to see guys using this holiday to manipulate the weakest among us for a Something More, when they're usually only fixated on Right Now.

    I'm done ranting...

    Awww...Happy Valentine's Day, knowwonder.

    *big warm hug*

    Now about those predatory kinda guys. Back in the days before online, those guys would be looking around the bars etc for a Valentine's Day romance, and I found out after talking to a few that underneath the playboy exterior there was after all a lonely guy, but still an opportunist to be wary of.

    Yeah, it's no fun here in the South. Unfortunately they're all guys whom wouldn't date guys who look themselves; so what makes them think that a big beer belly is appealing to anyone else? Then to be shamelessly blind in their approaches doesn't help much. I think I'll just find someone at a local bar instead.

    Manhunt for relationships. Hah. I can see people trying to find a valentine for their penis on that site, but not for themselves.

    I see nothing wrong with looking for hook-ups on sites like manhunt. The odds of finding an LTR on a dating/hook-up site are very slim as it is.

    The Internet is like a playground, everyone goes there for something different. Some go to jump rope, others to play in the sandbox. Others go to sell drugs.

    Please at least save one day for a LTR. You can do hookup in the rest of 364 days.

    I understand those words individually, but not in the order you used them...

    Damn! I'm going to have to totally reformat my social calendar now!

    Well I don't think you can't meet quality people off hook up sites. Met two of my close friends on Manhunt. Yes primarily you will meet people for hook up but if you persevere you will meet nice quality men for friends and LTR, Valentine's Day or not.
