what defines the "local men"? and what defines a "nice middle aged expat"?Hi! I'm a single local Lady who lived abroad for several years and came back to BA. I am single again and I don't connect with local men anymore...ahy ideas of where to meet a nice middle age expat in BA (milongas, events?)
Perhaps :-what defines the "local men"? and what defines a "nice middle aged expat"?
Thanks for the details, although that does not address the underlying theme that I was hoping to poke at. Please forgive me for sort of hijacking this innocent post but I would like to use this opportunity to bring the issue of opportunistic dating into the light and get some feedback from fellow users on this forum who can maybe share their thoughts and feelings. I believe that transactional dating culture has become a taboo problem that nobody wants to touch.Perhaps :-
Local Men - Born and brought up in Argentina..typically ancestors from Spain or Italy.
Middle aged - 45-60?
Nice - Gentleman, single/looking to mingle, good manners, well dressed, happy, having a reasonable source of income.
Men only want women for their bodies when they're boring, women only want men for their money when they're not respectably masculineThanks but it is particularly hard for men who do not want to be surprised years down the road and feel cheated by someone who wanted to get deep into their pockets, there must be a better way.
I couldn't answer on behalf of the poster; however, in my humble opinion, myself, being a woman who lived overseas for 2/3 of her life and is back in her home country, I would asume that she means that our mentalities changed and that most of the time we no longer feel we are on the same page with local people regarding the way we view things.First of all, what does a single woman mean by saying "i don't get along with the local men?"
First of all, that's not what she said (wrote).First of all, what does a single woman mean by saying "i don't get along with the local men?" Is that a statement of honesty?.
Technically you are right sir, I should have used the implied meaning instead of quoting but my point was accurate enough since not connecting with someone does imply not getting along at least the way I understand it. In regards to you dating hundreds of women and connecting with only a few of them sounds rather sad and bring about the question of what does "connecting" with another person really mean? To me to connect with someone is to date someone, otherwise why would I date them if I cannot connect with them? Isn't the purpose of a relationship is to connect with another individual on some deeper level so that we can relate to them? Otherwise why not just call it friendship?You changed the words to express your interpretation of what the "single local lady" wrote fro,: "I don't connect with local men anymore." to "i don't get along with the local men."
