Top ten dating rules for vacations

I have officially shaken my birthday blues off and I am actually looking forward to the big day next Monday. I plan to have a wonderful, fun-filled trip to Florida. I will relax and read, soak up some sun, and most of all flirt like a professional! I’m talking shameless, nothing to lose “boy macking” behavior.

Vacations have a way of loosening some of your inhibitions, don’t they? That is the great thing about taking vacations, you can forget all your worries and focus on having a good time.

Vacations are supposed to be fun but sometimes it doesn’t always work out that way. I can recall a few “when keeping it real goes wrong” trips. I made a wrong move (told an older woman I was alone) and ended up stuck with jerk (her son!) on a boat for the weekend. Or the time when I landed in the midst of a couple’s retreat as I was going solo. Fun times, oy.

What is the best vacation you ever had? Did you go alone or with friends? You guys may know that I am not a huge fan of dating rules, so to speak. I admit that perhaps there is something to be said for being “grown up” and adhering to a few guidelines to avoid any problems.

What would you list as your top ten dating tips or rules for summer vacations? Do you believe that being away from your normal world allows you explore a different side of your personality?

Have you ever been on vacation and did something totally out of character for you?

Story short no more ganja for me. LOL

Purple Rain –

:lol: Your cutting back is probably why she’s pregnant now. The consistant use of it is what slows the swimmers.

So the ganja got you pregnant! :lol:

Mrs. PG picked out the leather trench. She said that with my height, it looked sexy :grin: I also got an Addidas jacket that is made out of leather that I got from Argentina. She got some leather apparel that I picked out for her, too. :evil:

melo – The smell of Bourbon street has nothing to do with the food. The restauants you’ll eat at are not on Bourbon street anyway.

It’s really confined to that street. Too many folks walking around, drunk, sweaty and dropping stuff.

It’s still fun tho, believe it or not. Just don’t wear anything cute. :lol:

I want to go to Seattle and Maine. Shoot, there are a lot of places in the Continental US I want to visit. I haven’t visited Chicago since I’ve been truly grown (used to go when in college all the time)

melo – The French Quarter is more than Bourbon Street. I don’t think I’ve ever ‘eaten’ on Bourbon Street.

AmRed – Bacco. The first time I went was during the EMF. Ryan Cameron tweeted that he had the lobster ravioli and we went there for lunch the next day.

For all u who dont mind dirt and smell mixed with nice food,try New Dehli India, and Mumbai(Bombay) .

U’ll be surprised and appalled at the level of poverty u see on the streets in New and Old Dehli for example but be enthralled by the food in the restaurants. They can cook those mughals.

Avoid travelling there during the monsoon season,i think between June and October. Talk of katrinas,they have them ova there so frequently,it seems like a curse.

If u like jewellery,clothes and carperts..u will buy boatloads coz of the cheapness due the exchange rate in ur favor..
Indian women are pretty…but ur horny singles, u cant mess with them openly. U want one,u have to get her on the sly coz they(men) will stare u down on the streets until u feel uncomfortable.

I had a ball.Indian nana smells like garlic! :lol:

I’ve gone skiing in Maine but didn’t stay long enough to enjoy the actual state. I need to go for some lobster. I really did have great seafood when I lived in New England.

Yeah, I know that I married a firecracker, but I hear similar issues from some of her sorors’ husbands’. She is closest friend with the soror that was the tallest on her line. She is 6′3″ with a 6′11″ husband.

As far as ganja having an effect on the lil swimmers, i’m sure there is some sort of evidence to back that up but most of the people I know that partake on the regular have kids…too many dayum kids. LOL! So PR it might not be a good idea to offer your Mrs to use that as a form of birth control. :lol:

After this World Cup madness is over I would suggest that everyone visit Capetown, South Africa. It has the best of Africa & Europe all in one metro area… You can get out of it, whatever you are looking for. You can see European Villas and take wine tours, or you can take a trip to a nature preserve and see Zebras and Cheetahs, or a boat trip to see seals and Great White Sharks. The food is excellent and cheap.

@mqew..u hit up Bangalore instead..thats like ur silicon valley equivalent of India and all the middle class educated types to Indian Bill Gates types will hang around. Beuatiful city, i pased thru there too and it was less beautiful then than it is now.

Authentic Indian cuisine tastes really good,but be easy on some of the curry and spice coz u may have to be bathroom sequestrated for a good 3 or so days untill ur small intestines get the hang of it! :lol: :lol:

My mother-in-law has a place in Martha’s Vineyard. We eat plenty of seafood there. More lobster up there. It seemed to come in everything. It was like a happy meal toy. Just thrown in there.

Speaking of happy meal toys, McDonald’s is about the be sued about those toys. There is a group that says that the toys are targeting kids, and it leads them to have bad eating habits.

I had forgotten all about Martha’s Vineyard. I had a blast there. I hitchedhiked for the first time there.

One of my sorors owns a house there. Made since when she lived up north. Now she lives in Roswell so she might sell it and get a house in Hilton Head instead.
