Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

Why, gamayun, is it that you think there's little attraction towards a lurker? possibly as in run the other way as fast as you can?

Ha; not really. I think 'lurkers' are certainly seen in a negative light -- perhaps in a voyeuristic sense -- but I think they're mostly harmless and probably just don't want to get themselves skewered by the likes of us

You remind me of a still vivid memory from my youngun days at this university bar when all the guys suddenly lined up along the railing to the dance floor after the announcement came for last call. I had to ask a friend what they were doing. She laughed at my naivety That's not to say I was all sweets and innocence, but I just found the men kinda funny in a pathetic way.

Some people speak up only when they have a golden nugget of a comment
to add.
Some people just spill there mind on everything as a personal trait.
Both types are here I welcome both, read both.
Both types are harmless, although you can almost tell what some of the spewers will say about a certian thread. Some of it is comic relief. Haha
