One size fits all

A little tip to the men: women like to feel as if she is special. Yes, we know that it can be annoying to you at times, but it is the truth. If a woman is dating a man and he doesn’t make her feel special, chances are he will lose her interest.

One of the ways we like to feel special is knowing that the man has put some real effort into getting to know her. Then doing thoughtful things that shows he, in fact, paid attention. It’s all really simple, actually. If you have some routine that you use that has worked on previous women (and by worked, I mean it got you laid), it doesn’t mean that your object of desire will like the same things.

I think some women can tell when a guy is going through the motion, using his same tired wooing techniques. Some of which are horrendous and don’t work. One size fits all does not apply to dating all the time. Mix it up, listen to her likes, and let her know that you think she is special by her special, customized treatment you give her.

Ladies, do you think single men use the one size fits all approach to dating and relationships? How can you tell when that is happening? What would you do if you noticed a guy doing this? Do you try to switch things up when you are seeing a guy?

Guys, why do some men use one size fits all? The same lines, routine, dating destinations, etc. Is it because it works so well? Perhaps it is just easier? If you meet a wonderful woman that you want to impress, do you make more efforts to make her feel special? Have you ever noticed a woman who tries to use the one size fits all approach with you? How did you know?

Grilling in October is the BEST! Not hot and cooler breezes. Yup, another reason I love football season and tailgating.

I just don’t make it a point lik my gf does all the time

Cemeeli me neither. If it’s good enough for us grown folks to eat my kids are good enough to eat it to.

I have heard of people not giving their kids certain foods because it’s too expensive or not a kids food. If they old enough to feed themselves and there is no alcohol involved, the kids eat what we eat.

My mom generally followed that rule,too. However, she never twisted our arms to eat my grandma’s stuffed crab or stuff bass. She didn’t want us to waste that.

One time she gave us spaghetti Os while she ate blue crab.

Grandma stuffed her crab with very little bread. It was almost all crabmeat and seasoning. It was a homemade dish. You couldn’t just go to publix and get more.

Now that grandma is gone, she can’t get hers anymore. She has the recipe, but she still says that it just doesn’t taste the same when she has to cook it.

Those Hillshire farm beef links are pretty good.

On another note

My mom has gone back to her country roots, she is cooking some polk salad.

I wasn’t fond of that at all. I always called it a weed.

Cee

Don’t tell my you don’t liek Blue crab?

As a kid, I played with more food more than I ate it.

There is a classic picture that my parent’s still have on the wall in the family room. In the picture, I am crying because I had just gotten a “nice dusting of the backside”. We were in Orlando/Disneyworld for the bicentenial celebration of the US and I complained that I was hungry. But when we sat down at the restaraunt, I played with my food. My dad took me to the car for a “discussion”. Then, my mom took a picture as I returned with my dad.

I call her country all the time. Pine Mountain/Warm Springs/Woodbury is country. Other than Callaway Gardens and the Little White House there are trees and cows and an occasional settlement of people.

I grew up in Clayton. Just way down in the panhandle.

I’ll tell you what else is good… an apple pie or a berry crumble baked in a covered grill or even better in a smoker…I used to buy a frozen pies/berry crumbles and throw it on the grill after cooking the meat and those things are great with the added smokey flavor and vanilla ice cream… Maybe I will try a home made pie the next time…

W8 I bbq at a resort In Mrytle Beach and had darn near all the staff in the resort outside while they should have been working. Talking about how good it smell in the grounds. Of course there was beef and ribs on the grill. On girl asked for a piece…lol…from a complete strange? I was like wow!

Leggs – Stop giving Angie Sagittarian love. :lol:

But I agree, if it’s a problem now so soon, it may never get resolved to your satisfaction. Your mate should make you feel special.

I had the same complaint with a guy once, and I don’t even need a lot to feel “loved.” However, his method of showing that he cared was “you’re here aren’t you?” I’m like you show up to work everyday too, doesn’t mean you like your job.

All in all, I needed more, so that’s what I sought.

@Tazzee girl I was counting on you and one of my other friends to be my detox partners. We have to detox first then go and then detox again. Let me know when you go down..we can hang out..but tell you now..I go to the midway bingo games, I bet on the colors..and I go to at least 2 livestock shows(I don’t know a damn thang going on but I root for the kids showing their lambs and goats) We start at about 11:30 and we shut the place down. We buy all kinds of arts and crafts that I will never use or need in the vendor market..ohhh yeah and I must take at least two pictures on tractors…LMAO
