Marriage is totally worth it!

My Mother came into town Sunday to attend a nursing conference in the city.  I was basically her driver/hotel concierge/hostess for the last two days and I am exhausted! I enjoyed having her around but my poor Father was clearly miserable without his wife.

Dad constantly called to hear her voice, remind her to take her medication, and any other random excuse he thought up to dial her number.  It’s endearing and sweet to see their romance continue all these years!  When I saw them light up when they reunited  (after 48 whole hours!), I got all choked up and misty. It was like a sappy The Notebook moment right there in the parking lot.

I thought, “You know? I kind of want that!”  No,  seriously! I’ve been ambivalent about marriage and commitment in the past, but watching my parents yesterday made me think that marriage is totally worth it.  I would love to have a man still stand the sight of me, let alone love me, after over 40 years of marriage!

Do you think marriage and commitment is worth all the challenges that are sure to come?

How do you think your parent’s relationship shaped your perception about love, commitment, and relationships?

What was your first memory of love and affection in your home?

Carlito – I think a lot of men like the sweat beads on the chest. I feel most dirty when I’m sweating it out in the gym with the ponytail, but men will sure try to sneak a peek when I lean down. What is the reasoning?

Wolf Claw?? I was thinking long toe nail when I mentioned the wolf claw. Some women sport a long, decorated toe nail on their big toe. It’s horrible!!

Melo – Yous a nut! I just can’t take a lazy man, cause I’m not lazy. My dad worked out in the hot sun, on the railroad, to pay for med school. I’ve done yardwork, thrown newspapers, bagged groceries to make ends meet until I “made it”. I like a man that can use his hands and is not afraid to get dirty!

Now I am a finance manager and my SO is a lawyer. We’ve paid our dues, but if push came to shove, neither one of us is above going out and doing what we have to to pay those bills. We’ll hustle! Or even just stuff around the house. SO shole look good with his muscles all sweaty after working in the yard or on the house!LOL!! I can’t stand a man that’s too cute to work!

I don’t do designs on nails at all. In fact, I don’t even wear color on my fingernails. And other than french tips on my toenails, I tend to keep it basic when it comes to all that.

Basic mani/pedi with no frills works fine for me.

SCool – My fingernails are thin & super-sensitive to most nail polish, so I just keep them trim & clean. As for my toes, I don’t do designs, but I go very bold with the color, especially in the summer! When I’ve been in the sun awhile, a bold gold/orange color or a lime neon green look great on my toes!

Getting me a pedi this evening!

Exactly, PK.

But now I do *HATE* to break a nail. Because for some reason, mine always seem to break damn near halfway down my nail bed and it takes two months for them to grow back out to *cute* length.

Speaking of which – let me do some pre-emptive trimming *right now*.

PrincessNik – I normally just do plain color or the french pedi…but when she asked I was like Ummmmmmmm, yeah sure…Let’s try it. :-D
My fingernails naturally grow long but I never put color polish on them…just a clear coat every now and then.

Women, yall ever dated a dude that was REALLY into feet & toes…I mean, REALLY REALLY into toes?

Slim, 95% of the time its a french pedi for me, and when i was getting my nails done (acrylic overlay) i would only put color on the tips (liek a french but color instead of white) I just don’t get into a lot of color with nails.

some lady staying on the south side, sitting by the edge of her bed,nail remover in hand and slowly rubbing off the zebra and anaconda nail design on her 2 Big toes, that read, ‘Guys like BJs” ,because the MIA blog said its a baaaaad bad idea!

Priceless!! :lol:

I don’t think i could deal with a foot fetish guy cause if his lips head towards my toes, HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM!

I need a guy that’s not grossed out by feet, but that aint trying to lick em like a chicken bone either. Touching and massaging is acceptable.

Carlito, well I dated a dude who was really into toes. I believe one of the first times we went out he asked to see what the toes looked like. He stated he likes to suck on them, rub them and things of that nature :shock: Foot job? Um, how did that turn out for you? If I were a dude, I wouldn’t want to risk the possibility of a snagged toe nail hitting up against my skin, if you know what I mean. I’m sorry, but I’m just not into feet like that

…stepping in for a minute.

I love a good foot massage, however I am not a fan of dudes that want to slurp on my toes and ask to see my feet every five minutes. I almost kicked this one dude in the mouth we were watching a movie and he eased down off the sofa next to my feet on the floor…my silly tail still watching the movie feel something wet on my toes JUMPED. It was him straight turnoff.
