Should we be thankful for dating?

Thanksgiving is the holiday that invokes gratitude and appreciation.  You can count your blessings and say what you are thankful for because it allows you to recognize what you have.  We can even appreciate the dating game, for better or for worse.

Of course it is no fun being rejected or getting dump, but a lot of our dating experiences are fun.  I would even argue that if we took the time to really think about it, there are few things we actually regret.  By the way, if this is not the case, then you may need to evaluate why you are constantly picking the wrong people. Or perhaps you are picking the right person and handling things the wrong way.

At any rate, what do you appreciate about the dating game? Which experience are you most grateful for?

If you took the time to find the lesson, which was the most important one you learned?

I think each date is like taking a little step toward the person you want, so we may as well make it a meaningful step. Do you think we should be thankful that we are single and dating?

I’ve also found faking a kidney stone to be quite effective

CDC cases?!

it’s been my experience that black women perform much better on average with the belly-button test than any other group

I won’t second that…but on average my black female college roommates seemed to be more tidy in general than others had been…not a fact…just an observation

I’m back from the dermatologist. With a damn diagnosis of ‘acne’ at 37 years old…whatdahell?

I now have an appointment at my primary physician to start looking for the cause.

Hell naw. I am WAY too cute to walking around looking like a 17 year old nerd. (Or at least I would if I had braces and Steve Urkel glasses to go along with this mess.)

Let the treatment begin.
BTW – it’s really not that bad. But since I’ve NEVER had skin issues, it’s really freaking me out.

SexyC.. I never had skin issues either.. But when I started to get that occasional pimple I started using Pro Active. It’s not for everyone, b/c it dried my exes face out and he didn’t like it. My sis and I love it… The mask really works.

i started battling acne in my teens and tried everything under the sun. i found the right balance by simply washing with liquid antibacterial soap, toning with witch hazel, and moisturizing with a fade cream. works for me but may not for others. it can be a loooong process finding the right tools to control that condition :(

I am know praying that I never have to battle acne.

Hey Melo,

No one else can make them as good as I can…

According to wikipedia
When the cooked eggs have cooled, the eggs are peeled then sliced lengthwise. The yolks are removed, leaving two egg white halves with empty “cups”. The yolks are mashed and mixed with a variety of other ingredients, most often mayonnaise and mustard

“…sounds like you are being breastfed for Thanksgiving”

Hmmm… That gives me a great idea for dessert, Prof!

Me: Hey honey, what do you say I make a reverse pumpkin pie for dessert?

Mrs. Swiss: Um… well… sure — but why is it called “reverse” pumpkin pie?

Me: (Holding a can of whipped cream and a turkey baster) Because the pie is on the outside & the topping is on the inside. Now come here, pumpkin.
