I don't think that I consciously bang my drum at all! Which could be my problem!

But if they happen to see it in me, then by all means they should call it to my immediate attention!

Regardless, being a Christian man is something that I am not ashamed of in the least!

Arb, I never meant to imply that you were one of those men. Please accept my apology.

I could give up chocolate but I'm not a quitter.

No apology needed, Sweetheart, as no offense was taken!

Glad to stand right alongside you, brother, in total admiration of a betrayed, murdered man, who came into our world to effect God's holy gift of Salvation!

Theres more than enough women of all types.

My belief, the issue is people expect perfection. Every damn thing is a deal breaker. Just look at this site! Someone could come on here and say they are mad their husband/wife likes to eat spaghetti with a spoon and undoubtedly someone will come on here and say "I would just leave. No way I would put up with that. Why do you allow them to eat spaghetti with spoons? People treat you how you allow them"

Seems like most people here advocate for others to leave their relationship as opposed to working on or finding a fix. "Just leave, find someone else" is the mantra. Then they sit and complain about not being able to find anyone. Most counselors advocate to split too, which is why I dont trust them. Plus most of them are divorced themselves lol. That's like asking a fat guy for advice about diets.

Anyone here with 10, 15, 20, 35+ year marriages think your spouse is perfect? Anyone here think you are perfect and therefore deserve perfect?

If my devils are to leave me, I'm afraid my angels will take flight as well.

And unfortunately for them, that's a rather sad commentary!

My entire line of thought is that if my liberal Christian values is not what they want, then I just prefer not to be around them!
I’m with you. It seems like women are looking for Mr Adventure and bad boy types.

Idk about that. I'm not sure what the bad boy type is or what they even look like. I'm sure some consider me a bad boy type, and I'm definitely not fighting them off with a stick saying "ladies please! I'm married here!"

@Andy1001 what about you eh? Were you the bad boy type? Are you tall dark and handsome with big biceps and pecks? Packing a decently noticeable bulge in loose fitting jeans? Lol.

I just think its confidence and a sense of humor that makes them laugh. If you can make them laugh man, that goes a very long way IME. Consistently make them laugh. Confidence, while being self deprecating at the same time. Things like that. This ain't rocket surgery.

There's also a fine line between letting a girl know you are interested and being creepy that some men just have no grasp of it seems. Every girl has a million creepy guy stories. A million new ones every year that is. Most of them probably aren't creepy for real if you really think about the percentages of actual creepers out there. Or maybe there just is that many creepers lol. Should make it easier for a couple of stand-up blokes like yourselves if that's the case.

Religious or secular, women tend to be attracted to money, power, status, or some combination of the three. Most simply are not attracted to males without at least one of the three attributes.

At least for the vast majority of people, negative experiences usually breeds cynicism, doesn't it?
