Dating: Good together on paper?

It is one of those things that happens to the best of us. You meet someone who appears to have a boatload of things in common with you. Similar background, upbringing, likes, dislikes, even your taste in music matches up! Then dating commences and the attraction wanes instead of grows. What happened?!

It’s when you are good on paper but not in real life. The things that we consider super important for compatibility does not always translate to hot and heavy relationships with great chemistry. You can never predict it but is it something we can create?

Do you ever meet people who you seem to match well with in theory, but not in practice?

Is the chemistry really important or can you begin a love affair with someone who is simply compatible to you? What happens when you realize you are only good on paper?

I always paid the tab for everything while dating. I never had a woman offer to do so, but if they had, and/or even insisted, I wouldn’t have liked it much. Old fashioned, I guess.

Mmm hmmm, Leggs. I put a rub on it last night, and put it in the crockpot with onions and garlic and some veggies. Can’t wait for dinner!

I just so happen to like sonic. I’m down for a lemon berry slush on a hot summer day. of course, hot summer days are a way off.

last week someone mentioned white cognac. I went looking for it but forgot the recommended brand. anyone have suggestions? I guess you are starting to age a bit when getting carded is like a compliment. guy at liquor store asked for ID but I thought it was just to check the name on my credit card. he made me take the ID all the way out of the case and then expressed how surprised he was at my age. he made my day.

disco – I like Sonic, too. In fact, I do believe their peach tea is calling my name right now.

Vanilla Cognac – NaVan ($39.99).

Merkow has a less expensive brand, but its not as smooth as NaVan. More cognac than vanilla.

I’ve never had Sonic. I almost did though. Went to Florida and got there late. Was hungry…if my recollection is on point there was a Sonic located inside but was closing. I ain’t gonna lie, at 9:30 – 10:00 the food looked good. It was right at closing time and some folks ran in to get something. By the time I decided to run it they said…sorry we’re closed…lol

I like sonic burgers, breakfast toaster sandwiches and every blue moon a chili dog. the slushes are my thing though. I always get the huge one and just slow sip my drink forever.

disco – I hear the new Clear Remy is good. I have not tried it yet though ;-)

Leggs – It is soooo good though…it has a hint of lemon to it with crystallized sugar on top. It’s like an orgasm in your mouth.
