RE: Woman successfully sues dating agency over lack of men
Has she forgotten how to approach a man and just resorted to completely paying her way through?

Maybe she could sign up to a gold digger bootcamp just like how men sign up to pickup bootcamps.

Because they don't discriminate (money).

U.K. is done

That's probably adjustments due to inflation or extra costs. I really don't see the problem with this, they misled her and swindled her money. Sure, she sounds a bit nuts and is making a desperate last attempt at getting a walking wallet husband, but that's not an excuse to scam her.

I agree. If you are a victim of a 10$ scam (I am looking at you, amusement parks!), I laugh at you.

However, if you get scammed for thousands of pounds, that is a different story.

Hate to say this, but it makes sense that a good state should shield its citizens from their own stupidity/delusions.

I side with her on this one. On the surface it is absurd, and the company made a pretty outlandish claim, but also charged a pretty outlandish price, and companies make such claims all the time, and that's particularly why someone would engage in business with them.

What? I can fly literally across Europe for 1 cent?! Great, sign me up. Now if we enter into a straightforward agreement, but then they don't live up to it because "what were you thinking?! obviously you can't do that. It costs more in fuel just to shuttle your bags to the plane?!" I'm not the one at fault. Maybe they got a great deal on fuel. Maybe they're offsetting it with higher fares, maybe it's the last flight of the season. The "how" of the agreement or their aggregate operation isn't particularly my concern.

And besides, we're pummeled 24/7 about how age and weight are just numbers, force-fed stories about geriatric women marrying 20-something stars and how enlightened these guys are. Why wouldn't she think it's reasonable?

RE: Woman successfully sues dating agency over lack of men
I saw this a while back and was going to make a thread on it. This was some time back though - a few months at least. Maybe it was another case. It might have been, thinking about it.

It probably isn't the first and it certainly won't be the last.

Matchmaking has always gone on, but it's been a social and class and even religious thing. The services offered here weren't so much 'dating' but 'matchmaking'. That's a tall order.

The company has some chutzpah to even attempt this, but they found enough rubes to make it viable. So it seems. One got a bit peeved she didn't find Prince Charming. Probably a dozen before her who bit their tongue and hid their pride.

By the same token, how fuck dumb do you have to be, I mean, deluded dumb, to have a laundry list of expectations like that and to even imagine they could be conjured in to reality. Methinks someone read too much harry potter.

Yes, it's desperation. Yes it's a scam. Yes, it's stupidity and obliviousness. They are all guilty by degrees.

This is a litmus test for all you 40 year old girlies out there now reading RVF and lurking. This is free advice. Try this:

Go out to a bar. Any bar. Be it a biker bar, a wine bar in the city. A trendy bar in a trendy part of Shoreditch or wtf is hip at the moment. Just go somewhere you won't be raped, of course. You'll be good in most of London.

Go out by yourself, or perhaps go out with a girlie pal. No males. This is part of the test.

Now, in a pub full of drunken and probably fairly successful (in their field) men, how many of them approach? Chat you up? Give you the eye?

Men are dogs. It's true. We are beasts who are never sated. Always looking for the next lost cave girl to drag by the hair back to our tribe and cave. But still, keeping that in mind, what do you find?

If you look anything like the model of our story here, the original poster girl who our narrative is wrapped around, well, you might get some chavs, some herberts, some deluded alchies trying their hand. But do you get any Chads? Any Rodrigos? Any Ivans?

And if so, are they broke bums waiting tables on their night off, or are they there, fair lady, to meet a lost soul like you, to capture you and take you back to chez Chad in their illegally parked Helicopter?

This is an easy test to do. It might save you 10,000 grand and much more embarrassment.

We don't hate you for playing the game. We play it too. But don't hate us for playing the game as well.

I say this with no bitterness and as a RVF Community Service Announcement to all you good girlies lurking and looking for life advice in this dirty corner of the internet.

I know what it's like to hit the wall. Time waits for no man, or woman. We are all equal in the end.

If only you knew how much we loved you. Wanted to love you. How much it hurt when you said you loved us, but you didn't, or rather you did, but something better came along, not by much, usually just a bit, and you turned our worlds upside down. We can hurt too.

Men are the fairer sex in many many ways. Women need to be harder. But let's not let this digress in to an essay on hard biology.

Let this be a lesson to you all, fair ladies. It is biology. The same biology that makes you want to fuck the brains out of Chad or Rodrigo, cheating on your husband and father of your children of 10 years.

Don't come it with us lassie!

Even the old and shattered and broken among us know your game. Better than those soon to become old and shattered and broken. Even here we can only impart so much knowledge to cocky young men that know it all. And good for them. They make the world go around. The Chads, the Rodrigos. Even the odd Herbert might surprise you if you look long enough with the right kind of eyes.

Kiss the frog.

And let us eat the peach.

But true love will never be found by being prey to those that that exploit your dreams and unrealistic expectations. This is really not about money. Men don't want your money. Only other women do.

Make yourself available. Dress nice. Smell nice. Don't go overboard. Be open. Go out there in to the big bad world. A lot of men are creeps and beasts, it's true. But most of us aren't. You will know us by a look in our eye. Our posture. The way we speak. The way we listen. And we do listen. We listen very very hard to what you have to say. You would not believe how hard we listen. Though it may not seem like it.

There's a place for all of you girls. You older ladies even, if you choose. You might have to be nice. You might have to be pleasant. You don't need an agency to skim you 10K for that.

Now, I'm not suggesting you go and pick up the nearest homeless bum and buy him breakfast. Not with a view to romantic relationships at least. Most homeless are homeless for a reason. Keep your wits about you.

But maybe, just maybe, drop the bar, and lower your expectations a little bit. There are millions of men out there for you. Probably not a man like me, as broken as I am. You can't afford me. I would never put up with your shit in a million years. Just physically incapable of it, sorry. But there are many other men that will tolerate you and love you, even - good men.

You have the highest market value, let's be realistic - you can pick and choose a bit. But do you really think Chad, Rodrigo or Ivan is going to pass up that prime piece of pussy he's been pounding for the past week just to prospect for you? Not going to happen. Basic biology. No need for a lesson. Common sense should prevail.

And even if he did. You would think less of him. Such is your biology. Because you always want what you can not have. And you always devour that which you have had. As a heuristic. Of course.

And even if you got Ivan in his illegally parked Sikorsky to whirl you home, would you still love him in the morning, after he had ravished you? Think hard before you answer Lassie!

You would probably find hidden depths to your perversion that not even you had touched upon before in your wildest fantasies. Herbert, the gangly cock-eyed pool boy with a stutter would be looking like fresh meat to you now by this point, wouldn't he? Admit it! It's ok.

It's not just us men that like forbidden meat, sorry, fruit...

:-)


This has been a RVF Public Service Announcement to the good ladies that lurk at RVF.


Your ever so sincere, Agony Uncle Rigsby has to go now as he also has some cats to feed and some beer to drink (but not strictly in that order).

Normal service can resume. As you were, good men of RVF!

Feel free to give these bitches some advice of your own. They won't thank you for it. But maybe, in a strange kind of way, they might still love you in the morning...

During the meet, I asked if she had met anyone else from the site prior to me, to which she replied that she'd met up with six guys. From the descriptions given, these were all high status men, and yet she had found fault with all of them. Funnily enough, I heard no more from her and, soon after this, I cancelled my subscription.

Your post reminded me of this classic skit from Smack the Pony. It really sums up a lot of those delusional twats:




Seeing as how this show was created and written by weomunz, it kind of serves as proof that they know how crazy they are and are just trying to see what they can get away with.

“That sig BTW is a very asinine anti-family anti-parent quote. You live in a country where 40% of children grow up without a biological father, yet somehow “the greatest burden a child must bear is the unlived life of its parents”? Sorry but this is fruity Boomer nonsense.”

When you are 50 years old and 6.000 Pound is all our savings, your last relationship just lasted 7 years, it tells quite a lot. Then to expect a high value man, to pay for all of you while all you can offer is a gone youth and not even the possibilities to manage your own money. Not to mention what will you do with his money.

We will stand tall in the sunshine
With the truth upon our side
And if we have to go alone
We'll go alone with pride


For us, these conflicts can be resolved by appeal to the deeply ingrained higher principle embodied in the law, that individuals have the right (within defined limits) to choose how to live. But this Western notion of individualism and tolerance is by no means a conception in all cultures. - Theodore Dalrymple

RE: Woman successfully sues dating agency over lack of men
Heh.
Heh.
Heh.
This chick gets it :

RACHEL JOHNSON: Your perfect man is out there somewhere ladies, he just doesn't want you

...
My former neighbour Maggie came down hard on Ms Burki’s side.
She told me dating agencies (I won’t name them in case I’m sued!) were ‘a complete con on vulnerable, divorced or single women’.
While women like her paid through the nose, she claimed most single men on the site had been popped on the books for nothing, with agencies trawling the personal ads of national newspapers to find their fresh meat.
One ‘exclusive’ London-based agency that charges women £15,000 to join had apparently ‘recruited a lot of my single grey dullards for free’, Maggie reported. Once the agency does finally match you up with a prospect they are inevitably a ‘huge disappointment,’ she continued.
Mmm! Be that as it may, I suspect there might be another factor keeping more eligible men away.
As the judge himself noted with heroic understatement: Ms Burki’s requirements for a man who would be both a walking wallet and potential babyfather were ‘not modest’.
Given that many single, older men will no doubt have already forked out a fortune to an ex-wife or two via the divorce courts, the last thing they want is to risk another woman taking them to the cleaners – especially one as unashamedly direct in her demands as Ms Burki.
When it comes to this high-rolling dating game, I suspect men are hearing not wedding bells but warning bells.
They know that what many women want is not to find true love but to land a big fish with the smallest hook possible, and men who sense this are like canny old trout lying low in a shady pool. They won’t rise to that bait.
Can’t say I blame them much.

If an equivalent man said this, he'd be burned alive.

This old bag really can't understand why she can't meet a wealthy, handsome man. She's not physically attractive, she's broke and clearly has a very high opinion of herself that has no basis in reality.

She deserves to be ridiculed and presented as a warning to all dumb feminists out there of what can and will happen.

A bunch of 40-something women frivorcing their husbands - what could go wrong?

That is as if I would divorce my fresh 19-year-old 8+ hottie wife "to show her". I am sure that she will suffer great bouts of loneliness! Here you have 43yo women dumping their successful men who end up then oh-wonder dating even 20-something models. Who could have foreseen that?

I think that their hook is so small by age 45+ that most men rather prefer to jack off to porn than shackle up with an ageing harpy and 3 kids in tow.

RE: Woman successfully sues dating agency over lack of men
Below is the woman I have recently read about.
1.she complains about what men bring to the table (they talk too much about their jobs and she finds that boring.) Well what does she bring to the table? Does she have an interesting life,accomplishments, money from a successful career/business?Or is she just looking for a rich guy to give her money, make her laugh and entertain her?
2. Based on looks alone, if she meets the above requirements in all areas then I see a 70 year old man, also successful in life,considering her,maybe. But expecting more is unrealistic.
3. Reality is,someone who needs to spend $10K to a dating service is pretty desperate, meaning he/she is bringing nothing to the table.
