When should you decline a date offer?

I used to get so frustrated with one of my friends because she would accept any and every offer for a date.  It’s great that she is friendly and approachable, I think more women should be! However, she doesn’t seem to have figured out when to turn a date down.

Even though my friend claims to be drawn to a specific type of guy, she welcomes and encourages the polar opposite to pursue her. When things don’t work out she is confused, shocked even.

She thinks I should try it her way more.  She asked me why I didn’t give the guy on Marta -  (a loud man with a tear drop tattoo under his eye) my phone number.  Of course, I could tell we weren’t a match but this was using that whole “judging a book by it’s tattooed cover” logic.  I told her that I’m pretty sure I’m way too boring for him!  Despite his persistent, profanity-laced attempts to get my number, I declined.

Maybe I could adopt her ways more ….and maybe she could try to be more selective.  I’m a firm believer in dating someone compatible with you but that can’t always be determined in a span of a Marta train ride.

When is it appropriate to decline a date or pass on someone who is vying for your attention?

When you figure out someone is not a good match, isn’t the polite thing to do is say no? How do you handle it when you have to let someone know you’re not willing to date them?

Purp – that’s what we think as well. She is almost 5 months old. She’s improving, but her poops are still off. We are going to mix in some chicken and rice to her kibbles this weekend to see if that firms it up some more.

Had lunch with an ex today. He’s a dear friend now. He gave me some good feedback about me and relationships. The good news is that I’m very loyal, and when I decide to give a guy a shot, I’m all in.

Liz and I just walked to the mailbox and I was utterly surprised to see a letter from my mother’s half sister in Bordeaux, France. This letter is very unexpected yet a nice surprise.

She and I share the same birthday and she heard about my son and just wanted to offer her prayers. That is so freakin’ awesome.

PurpleR, I thought bread gives dogs worms. That’s what I was told. But I do know that rice does stiffen up the poops and makes them fat.

We has a 125 lb english bulldog. He couldn’t walk from the end of the driveway to the garage without having to take a break. LOL

Rai, if bread gave dogs worms it would give humans worms. LOL Worms come eating in areas where there were feces, or from ticks, mosquitos etc. Bread will not give a dog worms.
