I count myself as a bitter guy -- sometimes. Personally though the differences may irk on occasion, in the end I believe women counterbalance men in a positive way. A male dominated society would be like the Taliban.

So I for one am grateful for the feminine touch. Maybe not all the time, but most of the time.

Which just goes to show what we already knew - that the male of our species is not always that fussy
Male promiscuity is infamous.

pirate Re: Men at Sea

As a former bronzed Adonis allow me to point out that I prefer my main and even the odd auxilliary squeezes to be smart and pretty. But the sine qua non is that they weigh less than I do. By the time they get in my age range, ahem, let's say "middle-aged", far too many are just too big. Wat up wid dat?

Re: Men at Sea

At some point in time, there has to be some kind of meaningful exchange of ideas.

Hmm. All I ever get is sailing ads up there - no adverts for Bronze Adonises...
I suspect, perhaps, that this is targeted marketing, based on sites you guys have been browsing? Am I right? In which case, the OP has a very good point...
