Are all men scared of relationships? Or am I just the (un)lucky one that seems to find every one of them???

No, not all men are afraid of the "R" word... if it seems like we are gun-shy, then there is a possibility that some have been made that way due to their last "R" word.

Many women (and no, I don't mean all) tend to become so friggin' flaky and change into the stereotype that men just plain choose not to get into that situation with anyone again... especially when they can get the benefits without the challenges.

I wish you health, happiness, and luck in your search for love.

Men are built differently from women. For all the equality we strive for, it's just a plain fact that we're built differently. Mind you, I'm not saying "better", just different. Among those differences is often the view on the "R" word. (And if they're telling you otherwise, it may just be because that's what they think you want to hear... )

FWIW, my own views on the "R" word have changed with every passing year.

Chris, the "R" word for you has turned into Rock-a-Bye baby!

So, like women, men do see a different light as the years go by?

I think there are a few key points....

Men have enough trouble communicating with
their own kind...and for many,  trying to
communicate to a woman in a language that
isn't frightening to them (men) is sometimes
difficult.  When they are young,  there is
about one thing that is always foremost on
their mind.  As they mature,  with a little
luck,  they start seeing a woman for who...
I repeat who....she is.  Once they can do
that,  they are far more capable of being
able to sustain a relationship.  Being
able to be honest,  not put up a false
image of oneself....and being patient and
being capable of listening,  and listening
even more....help immensely....

Beauty does not necessarily lie just on the
skin of a person.  There are many beautiful
people that are far less than Ms. America or
some Greek God....  Just be yourself and
above all be confident that you have the
ability to be desired as a person and become
a part of a relationship....Just be you and
have faith....

Good Luck...

Hm, question of the century, this..My guess after many years of experiences, some good, most bad..its almost hopeless, but not quite. There are a few men who will really go there with you, they are just hard to find..
