Does Craigslist Only Attract Pervs?
http://moxieblog.typepad.com/moxieblog/2008/07/is-he-a-sex-add.html

Name: Redd | Location: New York, NY |Question: Back in 2003 I dated a man that I met online. When I first saw his picture I thought it had to be a fake. He was clean cut, preppy looking and very handsome. We went out for a few months but the relationship fizzled when his job as a TV producer had him traveling a lot. He had an extremely high sex drive. Looking back, our relationship was mostly sex with a few "real" dates sprinkled in. One thing that had me unsure about him was his interest in web camming. I never did it because it made me uncomfortable but he said he liked it. After we stopped dating each other we would keep in touch and have kept in touch on and off since. He was always in what he called "open" relationships. From time to time, when he was between relationships, we'd get together for sex until I started feeling weird about it. He'd come over in the middle of the day, before shifts at work, late at night. He used to share some of his sexual experiences with me - threesomes, sex in movie theaters, random sex he had with women he'd meet at bars or parties. Truth be told I was a little concerned with the amount of partners he appeared to have. Last week he e-mailed me. Long story short he said he was single and wondering what I was up to that night. I had plans with friends to go to a birthday party. He asked me where saying maybe he could stop by we could hook up at the party. Hook up as in have sex. I told him no and haven't heard from him since. The more I think about his behavior the more I wonder if he's some kind of sexual compulsive or addict. What do you think?

If He's So into Her, Why Hasn't He Asked Her Out?
Name: Islandgirl | | Location: Grand Cayman , Cayman Islands |Question: Hey Moxie.
I met an older guy a few weeks ago and I wasn't interested then. But I saw him again today and we ended up having an impromptu 1 hour conversation. We discussed his hometown, our families and a bit about his past relationship. Because he's more mature than the guys I've dated in the past, he seems to have his stuff together, and he's very interesting I'm very attracted to him. Typically, I wouldn't go for a guy that's 12 years older than I am who's not my type physically. But there's something about him that intrigues me.
He's obviously attracted to me because he keeps complimenting me on how "beautiful" I am. But the age difference does concern me a bit. Should I let that get in the way of at least getting to know a great guy (who could be a good friend if nothing else)? Or should I just ask him out already?
I've had no experience dating older men. How do they like to be approached? Something tells me they want a woman to be direct. Am I right? |Age: 25 http://moxieblog.typepad.com/moxieblog/2008/07/if-hes-so-into.html


Miss Manners - How to Shake That Clingy Person At a Party
Name: Laura | Location: NYC |Question: I'm recently divorced and slowly getting myself accustomed toMoxiemarch20071 life as a single girl. I've taken your advice and joined a few activity groups and attended a couple Meet-Up social events. I've looked for an answer to this question in your archives and didn't find it so i thought I'd ask this - How do you politely get out of conversations with people or let someone know you're not interested in them? I'm asking not only for interactions with men but with women as well. I have attended the Meet-up events by myself and I always seem to get stuck talking to people for longer than I'd like and miss out on opportunities to talk to other people. Both times I was followed around by men who were either very sweet but annoying or boring or women who also came by themselves who either had drank too much and had no one to talk to or were just all around unpleasant. What do you say/do in those situations? I don't want to be rude or hurtful but I feel like I'm a magnet for these people when I go out to socialize.
