    Wow.

    Jewish women want free labor? Never heard of that.

    I read - yah, what? comics? Playboy? Boys Life?

    I'm fine with all that. As long as he digs the Bard's work or some other from the classics. Or the Classics. I myself am a big fan of Sophocles, particularly Oedipus at Colonus. I have a (male) friend who worships Emily Dickinson. When he was seeking a mate, she had to dig ED, too. He met his mate, the mate loved ED, they've now been married a couple of years. They have many other interests, but ED was a hard limit.

    I don't care if a guy looks at porn. As long as it's consenual on the part of the person being photographed. As long as the man knows that *I'm* the woman in his life, his real life.

    I have a huge collection of "Thor" comics from childhood. In fact, comics are an assist in learning a foreign language.

    Are you in my generation? That's a very mid-70s reference. Smile

    In Response to Re: Books : Great story, Sandwich....whatever happened with the restaurant guy?
    Posted by chazz508



    We had a few dates.  But then I realized that all our dates were of the "indoor" variety (as a restaurant manager he didn't have much interest in going out to eat for instance), and I kind of phased him out of my life.  Interestingly, he was one of the guys who later called me to get together, and I was able to say, "um, well, I can't because I'm engaged."  One of the advantages of getting engaged soon after meeting Mr. Right!  8^)

    Why, I thank you, RT. Smile I don't know about cool, but I have my own style and ways. CHC is pretty cool, too!

    Great story, EES.

    My pastry chef friend says no-one ever makes sweets for him, they assume that he'll want to handle that part of a dinner or dinner party (which he doesn't; after a day of pushing frosting starting at 3am, he likes to try something else).

    My deal breaker for the next date, she has to know the two sexiest words in the English language that drives a man crazy and longing for more -
    NO EXCEPTIONS!
    ----

    This is going to keep me awake tonight, trying to figure it out in my obtuse brain. But I'm sure it's not "F* me" or "Don't stop."

    You sound like a very polite man, RT.

    Good manners always win points with me. He doesn't have to be Emily Post (Lord Knows, I'm not), but some semblance of refinement (without snobbery) helps.

    In what instances aren't women saying "Thank you," RT? I have a pet peeve when I say "thank you" for store assistance, and the clerk says "no problem." But that's not dating.

    In all my bad date experiences, I only had 1 guy who misrepresented what he looked like.

    I don't think I ever did (except for the guys who didn't post pics, and wouldn't send them, telling me to wait until we met).

    Re: Books

    I'll never forget she rattled off a list of what I did and didn't do over the weekend - my punishment? No sex...
    ----

    That's terrible! Sex is part of marriage. And while I feel it shouldn't be forced (yes, that's rape - I'll leave the BDSM consensual stuff aside in this post, a whole 'nother ball game), I feel that to deny your life's partner, your best friend, is nothing short of cruelty. Constructive abandonment, indeed! (But doesn't constructive abandonment open up a legal can of worms? I'm playing devil's advocate.)

    Besides, sex is life. Not to have it, to deny it to both one's partner and one's self, is to die a bit. I love sex, but alcoholism (my ex) can kinda ruin that in a man.

    My ex called childcare "babysitting." It wasn't! It was called being a father. To this day, 12 years after he walked out, he and his brother call visits with the fawn "babysitting."

    My husband was a big PITA in the delivery room. I wanted him out of there and back home walking our dog. But there were complications with our birth, too. If it hadn't been for then-DH making a decision when I was too out of it to do so ... well, he probably saved two lives. I thanked him for that, and still do. He's problematic in other ways, but he saved us. To this day, I whisper, "Thank you."

    You sound like a great Dad, RT! And a fine husband you were, as well. Any woman worth her salt would want you.
