City & State or ZIP Tonight, this weekend, May 5th...
City & State or ZIP

Location, Location, Location

I don’t know how to explain it but I call it the Panera Hottie Phenomenon. In the last couple of weeks, whenever I go in to a Panera Bread restaurant, I always spot a great looking guy. Not only is he great looking but he catches my eye in that “he could be my boo” kind of way.  It’s like the guy is literally in Panera bread waiting for me to walk in!

I firmly believe that where you reside, spend time, or hang out has a tremendous impact on who you meet and date.  If you find that these locations are not working for you, it’s time you shake things up! Go to a different part of your side of town, visit friends in their area, volunteer for a different organization.

Where do you spot the best potential dates? Where are the people who want a relationship congregating? Do you think your location is conducive to finding a date?

When I suggested this to a friend of mine, she scoffed at the idea of doing something to increase her chances of meeting someone.  She thinks that if it’s meant to be, then things will align and fall into place on it’s own.  What do you think? Is it better to leave it to chance or should we lend fate a hand?

Men are born gay and some women simply walk into being bi for various reasons. Even with that statement, there may have been an underlying dormat gene that activated itself after many years of hurt and frustration that made a woman seek the comfort from a woman!

You hurry home to your man and drop it on him that will have him looking at you sideways asking “what happened” and then drop it again and shut him up!

“If you believe that a man/woman is born gay. Doesn’t that make GOD out to be a liar.”

We are all born sinners, it’s not a reflection upon God’s veracity.

@SexyC ~ I knew it, I knew it. A statement like that, honesty and being sincere about the interest even though you’re going to keep your word and go on this date, should pique any man’s interest! Good for you girl!

Leggs – He told me this past weekend that my card had fallen out of his pocket. So, he called a friend that worked at the spot and the friend was able to go back to where he was sitting and find my card on the floor by his barstool.

I thought that was just as special as could be.

Life is like a box of chocolates you never know what you never know what you’re going to get.

Or

You can’t hold melted butter

Why does those sayings confuse me..

Most boxes of chocolates have illustrations on the inside of the lid that specifies what each piece of chocolate is. You can hold melted butter in a dish. To eat cake, you have to have some.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

I know right, if I have the cake I am going to eat the cake esp if it is yellow cake with chocolate icing.

How can I eat the cake that I don’t have?

What is the age difference between an older woman and a younger man that officially qualifies her as a ‘cougar’?

Leggs

Life is like a box of chocolate. Never know what you’re going to find. When you bit into the chocolate, it could be caramel inside…a smooth day, it could be nuts inside…a rocky day, it could be creamy day….a sensual day, it could be pure chocolate….a firm day where you stood by your convictions, etc.

i think they say that cuz if you eat the cake then you won’t have your cake. (???)

a personal favorit …. you’d cut off your nose to spite your face. yuk!

Leggs

I think 15 years? But a cougar is anyone 40+.

Raqi...Feelin' like a Million Dollar Bill

October 12th, 2009

It means if you eat your cake you will no longer have.

So can’t have it and eat it too. Either you eat it and it’s all gone or you don’t eat and still have it.

You cannot devour something and still get the benefits from having it. Once you eat your cake, you get your fill and pleasure for that moment then it comes out and it is not more.

Melo

about 15 years…and u cant be a cougar if u just under 40.

under 40 and over 33 is just a spring chicken :lol:

u know a spring chicken need a lil bit of heat to make her really delicious.Much like u ladies over 25 to 33,u need a lil more romancing to woo u.
Under 25 fermales,just buy her some ice cream and take her to the roller skate and u get the coochie :lol:

Leggs – Just googled it – seems as if most sites agree with that…I’m working with only a 5year age difference. I’m good. LOL!

Raqi – I do believe that is the best breakdown of the cake saying I’ve ever heard. Applause!
