Where do you find the good guys?

One of the most common questions women ask me when they hear I write about dating is where are all the good men in Atlanta. As if I have the physical address to a magical man tree somewhere in the city that grows good men that you can just go grab off the vine. Good guys are everywhere!

I can’t guarantee that they are the type of men that will appeal to them (or vice versa). Who knows if that elusive chemistry will spark an interest or not. I just know that they are out there and you don’t have to look far.

The gym, recycle center, Trader Joes, churches, and records stores are pretty prime locations that have made me stop and think, “Ok, I must always look cute when I come here” because it’s crawling with the types I am drawn to. A lot of times women don’t realize that some of the best guys to date are already their friends!

When was the last time you were out somewhere and thought that it was hottie central?

I was hanging out in Smyrna at a wing place on karaoke night and I couldn’t believe the number of cuties that were there. Who knew!?

Where do you think the quality women are? How do quality men seek out their counterparts? What are the best places to meet someone that you think is compatible to you?

The official first day of winter started Tuesday. Folks who haven’t secured their “winter boos” are scrambling or something. LOL

Ok, Christmas in 2 days. Who already knows they’re going to take their gift back to the store? Meaning, knowing the history of gifts you usually receive from this person, how likely is that you will like it?

Taking it back, or re-gifting it is the same thing!

Is it wrong to try to get your own gift back in the White Elephant/Dirty Santa game? There was high drama about it last year.

@mytwo ~ you can’t get your own gift back once it’s taken by another. :lol: :lol: Those white elephant games can produce some drama. It’s comedy at its best.

leggs, she’s a real clearance shopper. absolutely nothing wrong with that, but she grabs the strangest things like a lavendar sweater with feathered collar or a scarf made to look like a boa constrictor. she gave my son a discman with a blazing batman logo across the front. the boy was 15 at the time. just real odd stuff that does not fit the person’s taste. we usually cringe before opening. but she’s been my sis in law since i was in grade school and i love her to death.

But LEGGS! Some folk don’t NEVA NEVA bring good gifts for the pot and they always end up with the Ocean Mist diffuser of my dreams. It makes my gas card or whatever look that much better. Hmmph

@SexyC ~ absolutely amazing this man wants 10 pages and ain’t doing nothing to achieve that goal. He has his little puppet masters handling the task for him. :lol: :lol: :lol: Yep, I called us puppetmasters.

@czB ~ the concept of the white elephant game is people USUALLY come with gag gifts, although some come with nice ones. You pick a number from the hat that equals the amount of gifts on the table. Once you open that gift, you can either keep that one or take someone else’s gift. Once you take that gift you can’t take anymore, but your gift can be taken from you by the next person. People start throwing eye daggers at you, hiding their gifts under the table as though it was never received, bribing the person not to take the gift, etc.
