No. 0     Original Topic:  A Tale Of A Dog Named Dale   
By:  jadefox   Gender: F   Age: 54   on  Apr 18, 2013 at 7:16 AM   Viewed 24876 times     
This is the tale of a dog named Dale,
A bull dog it was, who thought himself clever.
He plodded along while guarding his home
in all types of inclement weather.

Dale loved to go hunting chasing furry little girl critters.
He would play with between his trips to the loo,
as he raced from one furball to the next,
until he was through.

Although he gave those little girls the jitters,
He favored no one, he just liked to have fun,
and would wobble off as he dropped them, one by one.

He broke many a heart, that dog named Dale.
but he hadn't a care only for his personal fare,
As he continued on his merry way to hell...
seeking self-pleasure.

Moral of the story? Well don't be surprised if at the end of his life,
Dale finds out too late all that was lost by his capers.

For the one trait he lacked that might have made him a champ,
was his faithfulness to a mistress who although she adored him,
he sacked.

And thus ends the tale of a dog named Dale.

REASONS FOR LOVE

Don't love a person
For what they own,
Like land and power
Or a beautiful home.
Don't love a person
For what they give,
Like money and gifts,
Or for the life they live.
Don't love a person
For their long silky hair,
Or the way that they dress
With style and flair.
The reason to love
Is for kindness,
Respect, honour and pride.
The reason to love
Is not what they have,
But who they are inside.

That dog is cute, if you don't mind me asking what breed is it?

Interesting poem by the way.

Wag the Dog


Why does the dog wag its tail?
Because a dog is smarter than its tail.


If the tail were smarter, the tail would wag the dog.

What Is A Womanizer?

For certain men, the challenge of seducing different women is far more interesting than the actual pursuit of a long-term romantic relationship. Such a man is known as a womanizer, or sometimes a Lothario or Don Juan. A womanizer is often a serial dater who enjoys the thrill of the chase more than the end game of the dating ritual. Women who have encountered such men may have other names for them, such as players or walk-away Joes.

A womanizer generally considers himself to be both a ladies' man and a man's man, maintaining an atmosphere of mystique and sophistication. He may surround himself with other male players or a support posse, but he clearly exudes a superior level of self-confidence bordering on vanity and self-absorption....

While all of these trappings may help a womanizer seduce a new target, he is generally following a script which has proven to be successful in the past. Conversations are usually surface-level and tailored to appeal to the woman's personality and interests. A serial womanizer is keenly aware of how to hold a woman's interest through conversation and other seductions, which may work in his favor if he wants the date to escalate physically. This is all part of the seduction game for a chronic womanizer, who may not even be truly interested in the woman as an individual.

A habitual womanizer may have serious issues with women in general, which can be the hidden motivation behind the seduction and ultimate rejection process. A womanizer is often a male chauvinist who views women as inferiors or manipulators who somehow deserve to be played by an aggressive male. A womanizer may be so concerned about rejection that he makes sure he remains in complete control of every relationship he enters, no matter how superficial or fleeting. Some relationship experts suggest that a habitual womanizer may be reenacting a painful break-up experience every time he picks up a new "conquest."

Other womanizers may actually love the company of women too much. They cannot commit to an exclusive or monogamous relationship because there are far too many other interesting types of women to pursue. They don't necessarily want to hurt their current partners, but they also cannot resist the temptation to flirt with other women as assurance of their sexual or romantic prowess. A player or ladies' man may be very good at hiding his true nature from a long-term romantic partner, but eventually most womanizers either get caught in an infidelity or mature to the point where a monogamous relationship holds more appeal than serial seductions.

Why Do Some Men Become Womanizers?

Answer:


Not all men are womanizers. A man looking at a woman (not touching) is normal and just as normal as women admiring a good looking man.

Generally it's immaturity that causes a man to be a womanizer. They think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. Often womanizers lie to themselves and feel they can have a normal relationship, but find themselves not able to commit. This is because the thought of being 'attached' terrifies them. That would mean having to give up their free, bachelor lifestyle (which really is just a fear of monogamy.) When womanizers are faced with only being able to sleep with one woman, a siren goes off in their head. Why would I only sleep with one when I could be sleeping with many? Seems pretty stupid to cut off their supply of having many women.

Most womanizers like the freedom. Unintelligent men think they can use women like chess pieces and and don't think about the repercussions of their actions regarding hurting the woman's feelings. And since they aren't attached to these women they don't have to think about hurting them. These types of men have never had to face the hurt they place upon certain women in their lives. Or they've been hurt badly themselves and are acting on that pain.

Honest womanizers should admit that they just want to have fun without commitment, but they should let it be known that they have no intention of having a serious relationship from the get go as to not hurt any feelings.

Dishonest womanizers lie, cheat and steal to get women into bed and this not only hurts the woman but will hurt the womanizer in the long run. Youth fades fast and sooner or later a womanizer will realize that superficial sex and short rendezvous will never replace a meaningful relationship or just someone who makes you laugh.

11 Signs He’s a Womanizer

He has lots of female acquaintances but no female friends
He finds it hard to see women in anything but a sexual light and views every female as a potential conquest. This makes him incapable of maintaining a normal platonic friendship with anyone of the opposite sex.

He promises the earth
While most men are reticent about commitment, a womanizer doesn’t think twice about hinting at a future together. Of course he has no intention of seeing it through, he just knows exactly what you want to hear. Be wary of a chap who promises too much too soon. It’ll hurt like hell when he decides to take it away – and he certainly will once he’s got what he wanted.

He asks a lot of questions
At first you think it’s great that he’s so attentive and interested in finding out what makes you tick, but don’t be fooled. He’s just doing the research that he’ll later put to good use by pretending to have the same aspirations, tastes, likes and dislikes as you.

He makes you think dirty
A cunning Cassanova is adept at priming females for sex by subtly dropping a few innuendos into the conversation or finding excuses to bring up the topic of sex. It’s a smooth way of manipulating your subconscious into thinking naughty thoughts. And guess who reaps the rewards?

He arranges dates at hotel bars
Once he’s got you in the mood with all the sexy talk, it’s only a short trip from the bar to the bedroom. See what he did there?

He’s vain
Most womanizers have big egos and a sense of vanity to match. Just because he wears expensive clothes and is always well-heeled doesn’t mean he’s a lothario but over-confidence, a general sense of superiority, swagger and a tendency to show off should be viewed with extreme caution.

He locks his phone
If his phone rarely stops buzzing and he starts acting shady or shifts the screen away from your gaze whenever it rings, his furtive behaviour is trying to hide the fact that he’s busy making plans with other women.

He ‘forgets’ your name
While he may not be clumsy enough to actually call you by another name, he will employ little tricks so as not to blow his cover. Be on your guard if he starts using blanket terms of endearment like ‘babe’, ‘darling’ and ‘sweetie’ when you’ve only just met. He’s just making sure he doesn’t get your name muddled up with one of his other girlfriends.

He’s over complimentaryIn the beginning it's all about winning your confidence. He has to do this to achieve his conquest! That's his only real goal, not to establish a genuine honest relationship with the woman

Womanizers are clever creatures. They have a unique sense that’s finely attuned to the female psyche and hence are brilliant at knowing what you want to hear even if they don’t mean it. When compliments glide off his tongue like honey it’s hard not to be taken in, but you have to ask yourself how many times he’s used these lines before.

He has a short attention span
A womanizer gets off on the challenge of a conquest but rapidly loses interest once he’s achieved his goal - getting you into bed. Obviously, you can’t know this for sure until it’s too late, but if you suspect he might be a player try staving off sexual involvement for a week to see if he loses interest.

He flashes his cash
Womanizers often use wealth to impress their prey. He may well make sure your glass is always full and that you never have to reach for your purse, but his intentions are not honourable.

What is the moral of the story. This story is just one side of the coin. Women play the same game and reap exactly the same results. This is a human dilemma or tragedy and is indicative of our natural human state of depravity. That is the reason God sent his only begotten son to redeem us from ourselves to himself.

Thank you very much for sharing from a man's perspective of the flip side of a coin from a man who womanizes to a woman who plays games with men's hearts.

I truly don't believe it's fair or accurate to say that all men or women are guilty of doing this to their love partners. All I have to do is look around and see all the couples who are married for life and happily so to realize that not all men or women are made of the same fabric! Praise the Lord!

Nor is one party wholly responsible for the failure of an otherwise good or healthy relationship when things go bad.

I've come to recognize that for someone to be attracted to a man who is a womanizer there may be a hidden underlying need to be drawn into such a relationship for the woman. Like possibly a hidden payoff to be involved with a guy who is not fully able to commit to anyone. Perhaps she herself is afraid maybe even terrified to be with someone who can commit and be available emotionally.

It can go both ways. I can't speak from a man's perspective however. Only from my own experience with the opposite sex and how the laws of attraction seem to work from a feminine perspective.

It's the work that one spends investing into a relationship for the right reasons that though they may not pay off in the immediate one; that perhaps it may strengthen the person willing to invest the time and effort into understanding themselves better so that down the road that person may immensely improve their odds for meeting someone who is able to be in a healthy relationship with one woman, and vice versa.

When a woman learns to value herself more highly as someone worthy of both love and respect, intuitively places herself in a better position to attract someone worthy of her love and affection!

Sometimes the things that cause us to stumble in relationships with an unevenly yoked partner become the stepping stones that help us to grow and better ourselves in the long run. It's from my own experience that I can say this. It doesn't make me a better person than a guy who is a womanizer; I'm just in a different place from living that kind of a life and have no desire to live that kind of lifestyle for myself.

I used to take people more at face value; now I'm more inclined to wait and see who people really are than what they purport to be.

Actions speak so much louder than words!
