Thanks for explaining your "reaction to the article."

Your reaction shows that you seem to have an attitude problem about how to treat women.

Your "reaction to the article" does have some bearing on the women here who read it in one way or another.

And FYI, word "freaking" is usually used to replace another more vulgar word. The word "Princesses" is used in a derogatory manner in your "reaction" and seems to imply that no polite or kind act is any woman's due.

As catholics and Christians we generally believe that Every human being deserves to be treated in a polite and respectful manner.

It is Just not good or proper form for mature adults on a Catholic site and forum, to use a slang word that replaces another more vulgar word,

but I truly respect your right to share your negative reaction to the article.

did you mean you could not agree more????

Am I the only one who is a bit disappointed that "be a gentleman" is considered some kind of earth-shattering advice for what a guy should do on a date/ when looking for a prospective mate?

I just find it sad that it's not more of a norm, I guess. boggled

I don't know why you see only negative things in me and interpreted my post in a negative way.
Seeing only bad in people won't make you friends.

I don't know you. Is there a language or another type of cultural barrier here, maybe? I do not know you, so how can you say I only see negative in you? I can't do that.It is not the way I see you. Read on..

I commented on the words and language you used and I corrected you to help you, ( I probably got you angry or offended..) and I wanted you to know so that you have a better experience here.

Women are very sensitive and you will have a better experience here and anywhere if you take time to think about and refine your comments.

I do not know you and I did not say I see only bad things in you- How could that even be true? That is a quick generalization that I did not make and you should not either. I am actually offering a constructive criticsm.

You have no picture up, so your words will weigh heavily when women read them, as they will try to read them to see what your personality is like.

That is why you should see to it that your words show kindness and gentleness- if that is how you are.( Slang words like freakin' do not show gentleness in this context.. they sound rough)


Your post to me is kind and gentle, and I do appreciate it! You probably were not happy with my response to you. Thank you for telling me how you felt.. I appreciate your directness. I am sorry I was offensive. I hope you will forgive me.

Something you should know: (I can't stand to hear or read slang type of talk.) So maybe it won't bother other people. Maybe it is just me.

The problem Dan, is that, well, at least for me,.. the so called "women" don't appreciate the good things a gentleman does for them. Eventually, we just get tired of trying to be gents. Alot of times I don't call them (at least the one's around here) women, I consider them all little girls. Because they haven't grown up yet. But that's just me coming from my end of the world.
