    You know, I never lie about any of my experiences. Therefore I never trip myself up by 'forgetting' what I said.

    and yet your post was completely unresponsive to cali's question

    LG!

    Well, where are you living, Sunsiray? If you mentioned it before, I didn't see it. And how do you meet all these people?

    (And, for what it's worth, Sunsiray, I feel that I know how the upper crust acts, thankyouvermuch. The fact that you imply that I don't just because I question these men giving you things like diamonds on the first date--and, more amazingly, that you accept them while at the same time professing to us to be so self-sufficient and independent--is just another example of one more of your sweeping generalizations.)

    I do not give out personal information on the internet about myself. Why? Because of a very unpleasant experience with a stalker who made death threats. Yes, there are police records on file *somewhere* in the U.S. for that unfortunate event.

    Would it be enough non-descriptor information for you to know that I've been in 43 of the 50 United States? I own my own home paid for with hard work and business investments.

    Where does anyone meet people? Through work, networking, other friends, and chance.

    Lobeck, I do not know anything about you as you know nothing about me except what I've posted. Please accept my apology for making an implication for what you do or do not know. I guess I took your comment about the castle/manor house wrong. (Once again trying to understand through email/postings).

    It would appear that Sunsiray opperates in a completely different circle than most people do on a daily basis. I personally have only ever had one major experience w/a man of this kind. He is a very well known founder of a corp here where I live. Of course that makes him 72, but at a charity auction he got it in his head to pursure me. At the end of the evening the event chair informed me that I had been out bid signifigantly like 100 of dollars on all the items I bid on, ie a trip, case of wine etc. Turns out though the man had bought them all and had the award cert put in my name as a gesture of his intent. Then he proceeded to call me for months afterwards every time sending flowers, one time asking if I could or would like to escort him to the opening ceremony of the Olympics I always refused his invitations, and gifts when I could, if they arrived by delivery not in the mail etc. I expressed that he should not pursue me, he said once well at some point I will make you an offer you can't refuse, my response was " are you going to adopt me?" I think that was the final call I had from him. My point is that some times people can be very agressive and they think it is the norm to give gifts on a date first date, but I don't know Sun and don't know the people she associates with on a regular basis. I am all for hearing more of the stories whether they are true or not!

    Thank you, Firegirl, for sharing your experience. As I said previously, I never lie about my experiences and don't get tripped up along the line because of forgetting what I said.

    I just wanted to share some laughs about Joe Millionaire on this board and answered questions asked. If my presence on this board is bothering other posters, please let me know and I'm outtahere.

    Oh yeah...I want to add that I don't watch reality TV but Joe Millionaire caught my eye and I made a point of setting the VCR to catch this series. The ads portraying it were pretty funny.

    I recently visited LA, and the papers are full of people in the entertainment business (usually older men) who actually advertise for much younger playmates in the paper - the ads usually say something about a "mutually beneficial relationship" or some such thing. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

    sun, I don't pretend to understand the way you handle your relationships, but usually people don't understand the way I handle mine either. I have to admit you have handled the barrage pretty amiably here.

    I do feel that it is bizarre that on several threads you have talked about the "gifts" that "dates" have given you. If you want to accept those gifts, that's your business, but it's just a little strange to keep mentioning them. I know that it's hard to express one's true intent on a message board, but it's hard for me to stomach being lumped in with the 'vast majority" of silly women who want someone to lean on when the lumper is making herself sound like she keeps 15 sugar daddies on the side at any time while remaining completely self-sufficient. I hope this didn't come off as sounding mean, but dang, girl! Those posts about having "too many diamonds to wear" and "sapphires are cheap, I give them away when dates give them to me" and "my mink coat that a date gave me" are a bit on the braggy side, especially when all those diamonds came from men you're not even in a relationship with. I hope you can kind of understand where all the incredulousness (is that a word?) is coming from. I really can't classify flying to Taiwan or wherever as a "date." That's not a date, sun, no matter how upper one's class is. Letting men buy you expensive gifts and vacations is not being self-sufficient. I won't even let a guy buy me a beer unless I'm interested in him! (and everyone knows I am the expert on dating. Not. :rolleyes)

    anyway, I guess my point is you'll have to expect this kind of discussion when you say things about those types of "gifts."
