Men If you told a woman you liked her and then said,

"I'm quite passionate..."


What would you mean? wink

I see that statement (or "I'm very affectionate") in profiles quite often. scratchchin

The impression my other single friends and I get - most of the time (NOT ALL, don't anyone throw a hissy) - they are looking for sex as an active part of the relationship rather quickly. That they consider themselves to be "Don Juan" eyebrow hersheyskiss hersheyskiss hersheyskiss laughing

Men - enlighten us, please. Don't be afraid to tell me we're misinterpreting it more often than not.

yeah it seems to say to me that "I'm a great kisser/lover and you will be physically satisfied" this is something that could be discussed when you have become engaged or in your stages of wedding planning. Because you are bound to talk about all kinds of things when you hit that stage. Because we are a gift to each other and should leave the opening to that time. If you love each other it will all fall into place.

Yes, when I read this in somebody's profile I get the same impression, and some express it more than others. It is like reading between the lines.

On the other hand I know many who express that they have a passion for art, or music, and even with this you can tell the difference of where a person is coming from.

Could be that both of you ladies are right and guys mean a quick desire for sexuality. However, especially on this site I think it is often meant that someone likes to show affection openly. Wordly, this would mean sex. "Catholically" - I also often say this - it means that we show our affection in words and maybe also in kisses etcetera, and would like a girl to be able to receive and return such affection. Take it not as an obsession or something, but as an opposite to some other relationships that would be rather cold, both partners being afraid to tell or show the other that they love each other. This might go faithwise as well, faith with more "heart" than "mind".

The man who said this to me said it about 30 years ago and I made the assumption that sex was on his mind. I think he was a good man and he was also not sure how to discuss whatever he was trying to discuss.... I am not certain exactly and wish I had been more bold and just asked him instead of avoidant back then.

This was about25 years ago and the man was from Britain. I give him credit for being blunt but assume it meant something about desire for sex. Not that that is a bad thing to have. I think this was a great topic to bring up and see what the men say. I think in all honesty he was saying what many men might say if they thought it was ok....?

The man who said it was "unchurched" so it is hard to know precisely where he was coming from but probably comeing from a general masculine thought process. I wish I had been more bold. But I was shy.

I think it would have been nice if it had been a more personal statement. I think most women might take note of that if they were told this.

They like to so affection or cuddle.
