I think everyone has something, or for some people way too many things (how you doin' Chilli?) that would make them consider someone not dateable. I'm kinda wondering what those things are for other people. I'm not so much wondering about those "at that time" things that make you not date someone...like them not currently having a job (unless like someone I know that not currently has been going on for the entire year I've known him and he'd already told me he had been out of work for close to a year when I met him) or a car, etc...these are changeable things...unless you are someone who always discludes someone based on things that can be changed.
I personally think I'm pretty easy-going where this is concerned (I'm fairly sure I can't count on both hands the number of people who would object). The biggie's for me are: you cannot have more than 3 children (I don't care if all 5 of your kids are with one woman-that's too many damn kids for me and I'm not interested), you cannot have more than 2 women who have mothered your children (I don't care if you've been married 3 times (that's an issue anyway) I can't have to deal with more than 2 females in our life. You cannot have been married more than twice-and I'm really shaky on that twice...once would work better. You can't not be taking care of your kids if you have them...while that may be changeable...it shows a serious character flaw and I can't get down with that nonsense. You cannot have a serious dependency issue of any sort...and that can be drugs, alcohol, your mother (momma's boys are not my style...there can only be one female in charge and I'm an alpha female...so you know who it's gonna be right?). And I think the last would be you MUST have a backbone...if you allow me to I will walk over you once and jump on you the second time around-and please don't mis-interpret what I mean. I know some females are into being shaken and shoved and whatnot (not that mess--it will turn domestic cause I don't play that and I will blackout and try to kill your ass).
So talk to me...I'm especially interested in hearing the male perspective.

So why the hell do I see so many people trying to do just that?
If you buy a friend and go broke...will they still be your friend? Not likely. So why do you think a significant other would fall into different criteria???
I don't know if men deal with this...I think women use their bodies to buy men...and primarily their 3 penetrable orifices. I'm not talking about that (although ya gotta admit it's the same damn thing)...I'm talking about someone straight up and down trying to buy you.
I know I've had more than a few men try to buy my time. It started back in college when the owner of a local bar/eatery wanted to make me the manager (mind you my major was English and I'd only waitressed for about 10 minutes and can't bartend) of his establishment. Of course, the price was that I also be his trophy. He was old enough to be my father. But it hasn't ended. Some days I wonder if it's something about me that makes men think they need to impress me (this has continued on with Bentley dude, $150,000 Benz dude, Range Rover dude, owner of multiple properties dude, owns an airplane dude, etc.). Please note that none of these men had names or faces...you were what you presented yourself as...an object. Not an object of my desire because I'm not materialistic and despise that trait in others. But merely an object...not one I even desired to have.
Even when I told one dude that he was "electricity" he still didn't seem to get that there was no romantic connection...you wanted to pay a bill and I gave you one to pay. And when I was done with him...while it hurt to not have that bill paid, the person who paid the bill didn't matter...cause he never did.
So why are people so dead-set on buying something that really cannot be bought?
