Chasing Pavements

One of my favorite singer/songwriters, Adele sings about chasing after love, even if it leads nowhere.  It reminds me of what it feels like to be the woman asking a guy out first.  I know men are used to this feeling, all the time, but for a lady, there could be more at stake.  Every time a woman asks a man out first, she is taking a risk at shifting the dynamics of a future relationship.

Is it better for a woman to make such a risk if she feels that strong of an attraction to a guy?

When women approach men, what exactly do they stand to lose? I always hear so many men say that they truly admire a woman that can ask him out.  I have no hard statistics, but these same men aren’t actually married or in a relationship with that woman.  So is it really admirable or are men secretly thinking they don’t want to be the one pursued after all?

When a woman asks a man out, is she chasing pavements? Can it ever lead to a relationship with good potential?

When my mom and sister used to stank the house up with eatin chitlins’ me and my pops used to dip out for pizza, all the while sticking out our tongues calling them DOO DOO Breath!. LOLOL!

@Cee ~ guess that wasn’t very appealing. But take watermelon, I like watermelo for what I call the “grit” of the melo. The texture. Liverwurst, if I remember correctly, was smooth to my tongue. Now, these are memories of a teenager!

Dinner tonight is baked talipa. Haven’t decided on my sides yet!

Princessnik, I said bologna because we ate that growing up, more so than ham. I haven’t had or bought bologna in eons but it was a constant, especially during the summer holidays or saturday nights with chips and grape koolaid. Remember when the large bag of chips had the two double bags inside?
