Time’s Up

I think my date double-booked on me. Last weekend, we agreed to meet up after work for a little “happy hour” and flirting.  After a couple of hours, he seemed to be ready to move on to the next stop. Needless to say,  I wasn’t invited.  He wasn’t exactly checking his watch every few minutes but sometimes a girl just knows.

He sent a text message the next day, I declined to meet up with him later in the weekend. It was not because of the double-booking, I had other plans already. I am actually guilty of double-booking guys in one day, so I couldn’t really get mad that someone did it to me.

When you schedule dates or agree to go out with someone, do you pay much attention to the time of day or the day of the week that they suggest?  If you are “penciled in” for drinks or meet up for coffee, do you consider that insulting?

My friend Greg said that he “threw me a date bone” because I only was granted the less then desirable happy hour hook up. I have to admit, I thought he was just being frugal, it never crossed my mind that he was selling me short with an after work meet up. There goes my ego, again.

Do guys send some kind of hidden message by the amount of time they spend with you on a date? Do men notice what days/times women are available to see them?

What is the acceptable amount of time for the first couple of dates with someone you like? What if you are “lukewarm” about them and need some time to find a deeper attraction?

I really think the “outside the box” dates really are helpful in these cases. The pressure is off to be “on” the whole time or slip into a date interview mode.

I am trying to figure out who I should take to the Professional Bull Riding. It needs to be someone who enjoys shaking things up and would make it even an more fun experience.

How open are you for a non-traditional date? Do you think daytime dates that last a significantly longer time then an evening date is a good idea? Do you ever put a time limit on your dates?

oh-wee Wise Diva –

I saw the poster advertising PBR Invitational at the Quick Trip this morning! I immediately said “this bull fighting stuff is going to be in my dreams”…

Fyi…if you ever visit Waycross GA. ask the locals about the black cowboys that rally there…o-kay…off that…

Good Morning!

Well well well. WD, I like the nontraditional dates, but I’ll be damned if somebody throws me a bone. I guess when I go out…my time is so valuable and I do not have much of it as it is, so I do not want to play the games. I do not want someone trying to rush through our conversation to make it to the next event. If something like that happens I would call for the check pay my portion and leave his azz there. I always drive for that reason plus a few more. I just think that it is rude as hell if nothing else I think dude should say I have a meeting or gathering at (insert time), but I would like to see your face and have a drink.

As for the double booking when I have done the double booking thingy I really did not enjoy it…it seems like the first date would flow well and I would have to pull myself away to go on the second date, which turned out lousy.

GM All,

I am all for the non-traditinal dates. I would definately welcome them.

Now on to this double booking mambo jumbo. Rudeness at it’s best, especially if you haven’t told the first date that you have a pre-arranged engagement. Rushing through drinks or through the meal would have me packing up my stuff and heading for the nearest exit. If you didnt have time, then just schedule in a time when we can both enjoy ourselves instead of making it seem like a round of speed dating.

Do you pay much attention to the time of day or the day of the week that they suggest? Most definitely! You need to determine if you’re a tool or a date. :cool:

Do you think daytime dates that last a significantly longer time then an evening date is a good idea? Yes, it can be.

Do you ever put a time limit on your dates? No. Why do that? Go with the flow of the date and if it needs to end early due to incompatibility or whatever, then sure end it. But to go out with the mindset that I’m going to give this person 2.5 hours and then bounce. Crazy concept to me.

Do guys send some kind of hidden message by the amount of time they spend with you on a date? Do men notice what days/times women are available to see them?

I think the whole scheduling game is tricky. First off, my best time that I suggest is a brunch date (saturday or sunday). This time works because for some reason in my book, women have more defenses up on a friday/saturday night date. I think brunch is different and it’s something about broad daylight and having mimosa’s that makes things go a little better to me. Also you still have the rest of your day if this date ends up being a waste of your time.

Second, I definately notice what times/days women are available to see you. Women can play the busy card but they aint that busy. People make time for what they want. The truth is whenever you meet a woman, they are always dealing with a guy in some capacity or situation. It may be a relationship, dating rotation, NSA, or whatever. They are RARELY super single and at home waiting by the phone for your call. So when she can only meet you at certain times (not saying anything negative), just know in your mind that she may be dealing with other situations that she may/may not tell you about.

You need to have at least two cowboys roped in by the end of the weekend, ma’am.

Double booking is just not cool. If you are double booking someone, you are really just not that interested in them to start. Do them a favor – don’t waste their time or yours.

Bad date – I just say so – in a sensitive, politically correct, carefully worded way. No use offending someone just because you’re not really feeling the blood splatters from the front row of the death cage match at WWF. ~teasing~

Me: Not Tito tell me not Tito, ok I am headed that way now give me two minutes I got to be there!

Date: What’s wrong who is Tito? What happened?

Me: I thought I told you I was a Jackson, and Tito can’t get his hair slicked down like Jermaine. I told him to use a toothbrush and some brown gel (still crying and screaming I am on thee wayyyyyyyy).

@Professor, thank you for my belly laugh this morning. You are a nut. As you can see, I too like being silly and I love to laugh at just abou anything (especially people falling who aren’t hurt, but that’s another story). Life is hard and the things we all have to deal with doesn’t have to be heavy all the time. Lighten up and the outcome of a particular problem may just shift and a better outcome can be had.

I have never had to vacate on a date, but I’ve been asked to call many of my gfs to see if they needed a bailout or not.

Yeah I typically considered certain days and times when agreeing to dates. And there were a few times where I double-booked. Some one purpose and others by mistake.

The only time that I find worthy of speaking of is the one time when my date cancelled because he had to go out of town. I made other plans and those plans were me accepting an invite from a friend. During the course of the date I get a call from the first telling me that he was at the airport and he wanted us to still get together later. Being that I liked him…a lot…I cut the date short so I could get back home in time to go on the date that I really wanted to be on anyway.

As for the other part of the topic I have come up with excuses to end the date because I just wasn’t feeling the person. And I know it has been done to me. It’s really not that hard to recognize.

A Soulful Relationship By Reverend Ronald McFadden

If you’re not married yet, share this with a friend.
If you are married, share it with your spouse or other married
couples and reflect on it. An African proverb states,
“Before you get married, keep both eyes open, and after
you marry, close one eye.” Before you get involved and make
a commitment to someone, don’t let lust, desperation,
immaturity, ignorance, pressure from others or a low
self-esteem make you blind to warning signs.
Keep your eyes open, and don’t fool yourself that you can
change someone or that what you see as faults are not
really important. Once you decide to commit to someone,
over time their flaws, vulnerabilities, pet peeves,
and differences will become more obvious. If you love
your mate and want the relationship to grow and evolve,
you’ve got to learn to close one eye and not let every
little thing bother you. You and your mate have many
different expectations, emotional needs, values,
dreams, weaknesses, and strengths. You are two unique
individuals who have decided to share a life together.
Neither of you are perfect, but are you perfect for each
other? Do you bring out the best of each other? Do you
compliment and compromise with each other, or do you
compete, compare, and control? What do you bring to the
relationship? Do you bring past relationships, past
hurt, past mistrust, past pain? You can’t take someone to
the altar to alter him or her. You can’t make someone love
you or make someone stay. If you develop self-esteem,
spiritual discernment, and “a life”, you won’t find
yourself making someone else responsible for your happiness or
responsible for your pain. Manipulation, control, jealousy,
deceitfulness, neediness, and selfishness are not the ingredients
of a thriving, healthy, loving and lasting relationship.
Seeking status, sex, wealth, and security are the wrong
reasons to be in a relationship.

@ True Love…

I just wanted to add a few versus from Corinthians 13:4-7

4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

I have read a lot of the articles by Rev. McFadden. He says some good stuff most of the time. But like Melo takes issue with him saying that sex is the wrong reason to be in a relationship, I take issue with him saying that security is the wrong reason.

My expectation that a certain level of security comes with a relationship will not be negotiated. Additionally, a change in status in a relationship (to a degree) is almost default – as well as an increase in wealth or at least a financial boost (If you have chosen well.)

I’m just sayin’….

I dealt with a similar situation. I tried to arrange a date with someone but was declined because they claimed they were going out of town that weekend. That same weekend I went to have lunch with friends and we were seated. Guess who we were seated next to? The same person that declined my date with one of her girlfriends. And I saw her but pretended not to know her and she did likewise but we acknowledged the situation to our respective friends… weird situation.

Any interest I had in her was definitely killed off… she played the odds that we wouldn’t run into each other and they went against her.

If it is a first date and you are just meeting to see if there is a connection etc then it is not so bad. When making the date, the other person SHOULD be up front and tell you they have another engagement at xx:xx so there time is limited. You then have the option to go forward and accept the date under these circumstances. Keep in mind, SOME GUYS use this for an escape path when Miss Right is Miss Wrong. There is this one and the phone call from a friend. They are not that different from Girls. They also sometimes only ask you for drinks to start with to make sure they want to spend more time with you, see if you are worth a din din. Sometimes that other engagement disappears and they suddenly have more time afterall!

Orville Redenbacher’s lightly salted no butter is around 300-400 calories for the whole bag, depending on which specific kind you get, with negligible fat. Anyone who is still drinking regular sodas, well hey, yall know by now what you’re getting, right?

Health reform per se is a good thing.Its unconscionable that 46 million pple dont have health insurance and care in the most prosperous country on earth!
This health reform in the senate will have ur taxes jacked up(mine and urs too) no qstion but i think its becoz there is resistance by coprorations and pple of means who just dont want change,Period!

If it passes,after a while and the initial shock of it,rates will go down(as more pple come on board) and pple accept the new status quo.
Right now,any marginal increase in taxes by congress to the insurers will be passed down to u and I,not becoz the insureres cannot absorb it,No,just to spite the folks in power.

Those insurance folks are the most jack assses u can ever find,the most rich and the most ruthless,classless.muthafckkrrss@#$^&%$ u can ever find.

So true and it has been my experience that the top five healthcare providers really control the entire show. Example if you have an organization that switch their healthcare provider too often lets say 3x in five years. Well other top tier providers will not accept them, because they moved around for the best rate, and the insurance companies will do what is best for the industry. It is almost as if they are saying guess what your organization will not buy from a top tier and go explain that to your associates. There are a lot of games played by them, and it is interesting watching how this all will play out.

Not to mention the guy on GMA that lost his disability insurance for eating chips and salsa.

My friend and I were talking about the breast exam issue and them trying to say only women 50 and older should get it. That’s crazy. And for the insurance not to pay because of such a ridiculous law being passed is even worse. Many woman younger 40 are being hit with breast cancer. My doctor suggests to her patients to get check as young as 35.

It may be a good system one day, but there are many issues that need to still get worked out.

More pple join in,more companies are available,health insurance costs will go down coz risk is spread over a larger base.

of course, if you kick up your activity level the pounds would go in only 2-3 months. this is exactly my struggle year in and year out. i have to stay faithful to my yoga and walking to make up for the fact that i don’t want to give up certain things in my diet :)

Melo, I got hit with a nearly 12% increase this year. And my friend would kill me for saying this but maybe the physicians need to lower their cost a bit.

What will probably end up happening is the insurance companies will start paying the doctors a lower percentage. While some doctors already don’t accept certain insurance because of what they will and will not pay, if more of them paid the same across the board they could force all the doctors to lower their cost a bit. I know that is why United Healthcare had a falling out with Saint Joseph this year. They didn’t like the percentages that United was wanting to pay them.

Leggs, been there. The only way I eventually weaned myself from it was to start watering it down. Then drinking it every other day and so on. Eventually I didn’t miss it. I made a big mistake and drank a full strong cup and it gave me a bad case of the jitters.

I don’t know if that would work with soda because watering down soda would make it flat. Maybe Mo can switch to the smaller cans of soda first before trying to give it up altogether. I am not sure what the ounces are, maybe 6.

abc,i agree that jobs will be a problem and will be even more so if the health care thing passes.
Obama,if that happens,will be a one termer….one of the greatest Prezidente of America…but that acccolade will come,well after he has left office.

Because of health care passage.

I know Raqi, I believe we all remember when your doctor ordered you to stop drinking it.

Unfortunately, in a capitalist society there is no real way to make a healthcare system that works well.

Capitalism is about making a profit. It is not about taking care of people’s health.

So, I don’t think that there will EVER be an effective system here.

Opening up the states borders just opens a can a worms that allows Congress to meddle without having to pass a bill at all. Once you open the state border a little thing in the Constitution called the Commerce Clause kicks in. There may be issues whether it would be constitutional in the first place. One of the enumerated powers in the Constitution is that states have the right to look out for their own states Education, Safety, and Health (it falls under a term called General Police Power).

IMO that could spark issues similar to those that led to the civil War. i.e. Federal government meddling too much into states rights. – it wasn’t as much about slavery as public school tries to teach us.

@ Melo…there’s nothing in the Bible specifically speaks to oral sex. those engage in it from a pre-marital standpoint violate the Bible’s position against sexual immorality…or fulfilling the lust of the flesh.

From a marriage perspective…pretty much anything goes between husband and wife provided both parties are open to it and it doesn’t violate the marriage covenant (ie Swingers). The Bible speaks to a wife’s body belonging to her husband and the husband’s body belonging to his wife. Which is why it’s wrong to hold hostage the cookie when you’re mad at your spouse and vice versa!
