"I`m not atheist or any religion... I`m not sure... "
Athiesm is the belief in >no god(s) or deity(s)<
There ya go :)

"when guys sign off `luv u xo`
that is an instant turn off, seriously, wtf, you don`t even know me yet! "

OK I HAVE TO ASK:
What about when you ARE dating already?
Otherwise I`ll just say things like "fun talkin` to ya :)!" as it slyly states that I want to talk again soon.

@ Lionhart2

First of all, that was hilarious! I do agree that what you said might be the case for some women. I`ll admit, if a guy uses some of those words when talking to me, it`ll probably make me more interested in him. To me, though, it`s because far too many guys I meet are OVERLY confident and roostery, so hearing those words used in moderation shows me that they also have a sense of humbleness.

Hm.. Atheist... I don`t quite consider myself one, but I don`t believe in anything, so I guess I`m set there.. That works.

Here`s a tip: Not all women are alike; Once you start writing for females or males you`ve jumped to a million wrong conclusions about both.

> Angilion
> If starting with an apology is attractive to a woman, she`s probably not a woman you want to be involved with

You`re missing the point Angi.

(Swaps to Old Fart mode).
My old dad used to say to me, "Every time you see a pig, kick it."
"That`s not very fair if it`s not doing anything wrong", says I.
"Son" (he called me Son sometimes) "A pig is one of the smartest animals. And they are always up to mischief. So even IF it isn`t doing something mischievous right NOW, it did something an hour ago when you weren`t looking that it got away with. So always kick a pig when you see one."

Now Angi, women see us men like pigs... (looks over shoulder to make sure She isn`t in eyeshot) even IF you aren`t doing something to upset her, she has a thousand-page ledger somewhere of everything you did that was wrong. So you apologize when you wake in the morning, when you have a cuppa, ANYtime - just in case. It makes them happy.

Hmm, I find myself always using correct punctuation all the time, as well as casually saying awesome. Haha. What`s up and hey are typically greetings I use, I never ask for an email (I never even use mine), and I always talk about music, movies, and sports with people. Sorry, kinda, and pretty are words I use often as well. And I think I`ll just stay off of the religious bit. Always have, works fine for me.

If starting with an apology is attractive to a woman, she`s probably not a woman you want to be involved with. Do you really want a relationship with someone who finds it so appealing when you apologise? You`re not going to have an equal relationship that way.

How sad an article is this? Bag a girl online.. LOL.

"It`s so true! I will hate a guy instantly if his first sentence to me is some variation of "You`re beautiful." What it says is "I don`t care about getting to know you, I just want to get some." It`s the worst thing you can say to a girl you just met."
Ok, so you`d rather he say, I really don`t care what you look like, I really want to get to know the real you before we proceed with a relationship? Guess a/s/l doesn`t work anymore? We ARE talking about online here... Maybe when a guy compliments your looks it`s because he thinks you`re attractive. I could be wrong.

So... the perfect response would be.

How`s it going? I pretty much believe that metal bands are awesome. I noticed that you mentioned that your name is Laura. I am curious if you have good taste in food, as I am a vegetarian and really like trying out new restaurants. Sorry for taking so long to respond, it was pretty hard finding someone who I didn`t feel awkward responding to.

"You might think that words like `gorgeous,` `beautiful,` and `sexy` are nice things to say to someone, but no one wants to hear them."

It`s so true! I will hate a guy instantly if his first sentence to me is some variation of "You`re beautiful." What it says is "I don`t care about getting to know you, I just want to get some." It`s the worst thing you can say to a girl you just met.

How`s it going ? It`s nice that you mention your favorite movie being the awesome `Vegetarian Grad School Zombies`. I noticed that you are also in an atheist metal band, Good taste!
