    Well I would prefer a pretty face and a hot body! But pretty and hot are different to everyone so what one person thinks is pretty or hot the next one may say "Yawn" I believe for me it would be a face that I was attracted to.

    It seems like if two people from INGO went on a date there shouldn't be any of those awkward pauses. If the conversation starts to lag you just say "Hey did you see that thread about on-line dating...LOL
    I may not be accurate but I sure am slow!

    Think I've told the tragic story of our first date on here before. Just... bad LOL
    The prospects of reading this were too great for me to pass up, so I went and tracked it down.

    Joe, I hope you don't mind me quoting your story over to here!

Met her (my wife, not the horse) in a West Virginia chatroom on AOL. She was actively husband hunting, and thought online was a safer and more effective way to meet men than in bars, since she could get to know folks to a certain extent before meeting them in person. I chatted her up for a while, but she literally had a date for every night of the week, with a few spares. I couldn't get a foot in the door! She used my schedule as an excuse for a while, but did eventually manage to get her phone number so we could talk.

    Finally managed to wrangle a Thursday night date out of her, which was an epic failure. Working in the screen printing shop was sweaty and messy, and shoveling crap at the stables was obviously hard on clothes. I simply didn't have anything to wear, so I got off work to go buy some for my date, and for the first time my car (a classic '72 Ford LTD, with a big 400 something engine, no exhaust gasket, mustard yellow paint job and ragged out vinyl top) wouldn't start. Ran into work, called her and set a later time. Got the car started, bought some clothes, darn thing wouldn't' start again. Got it started, got home, called her and set a still later time, showered, changed into my brand new Dollar Store (I'm not kidding, it was the only place close enough for me to have time to stop at) date clothes, ran out the door, guess what? Car wouldn't start. Fixed it, left it running, ran in and called her. Her bosses (she was a live in nanny at the time) told me she'd left quite some time ago.... uh oh. Finally managed to pull up to the restaurant, just in time to see the employees walking out, and a woman that looked an awful lot like Cathy's picture slumping out with them. Best thing I could think of was to pull up to her in my rather noisy car, give her my biggest grin, and say "Hi, Cathy!!" She looked my car up and down, looked at me with a look of sheer disgust, and says "Joe?" There is simply no way via computer to adequately communicate the disgust/disappointment/near hatred contained in that one word. I talked her into going to Bob Evans to try to salvage something of the evening, they were closed. Talked her into going to a Shoney's, which thankfully wasn't closed. We spent an hour or two drinking coffee, I thought she was awfully nice to stick around and chat with me, but figured she'd never want to see me again.

    For whatever reason, and I've NEVER figured out why, she granted me another Thursday night. Eventually, I managed to edge out a couple of her other boyfriends for more nights of the week, and finally screwed up my courage enough to tell her I wanted to be serious with her, but if she wanted to keep dating other people that was fine, too, but I didn't want to be part of that anymore. Voila, the other boyfriends were gone, and the rest is history.

    However, she refused to go anywhere in my car. Wouldn't even sit in it. I had to sell my classic, and buy a soulless Taurus to keep dating her. Much more sadly, I also had to sell my horse. I did not, in fact, have time for both horses and women. Did make a $1200 profit on him, though. Took a thrush ridden, scared silly horse and turned him into a healthy TN Walking Horse that was a sheer joy to trail ride.

    There... more than you ever wanted to know about how I made time for wimmin

    Just a comment. face, body, build.They can change over time,care neglect use and abuse. That being said the person inside is what matters .Many physicaly attractive women are ugly inside venom spewing selfish shrews that need a real personality implants not breast implants......and men/boys need to learn that ladies are not 2 legged sperm recepticals

    Both are trivial. What really matters is does she like to shoot ? As a added bonus, does she like to reload ?

    I don't think it's a failure to communicate...I got it, looks aren't everything... however how important they are should be up to the person. I do place some value on looks, not as much value as other attributes. I talked to a HOTTTTT guy, he was crazy, guess what, I cut him loose, haven't looked back. I don't feel it's bad to want to be physically attracted to someone who you intend to be "more" then a friend. Last guy I talked to was 6'4" and going on 250-275, so I can honestly say that I'll give a decent guy a chance....it's on them to not blow it, lol....

    I totally agree, I met my ex-husband online back in 2000...... but my life was different then, I had more free time to date and to meet someone in.... I can't date anyone at my store (or really anyone who works for the company), I don't drink so going to the club/bar is pretty much out, I don't have any real friends outside of work here in Indy so it's difficult to meet someone but I don't want to sit here and not be able to say I'm not trying.
