Where do men like to date?

My friend Eric was asked out on a date recently, which kind of excited him a bit. The young lady kind of added to the excitement telling him that the details of the date was a surprise. Oh, he was surprised, alright.

The surprise date was at an art studio where they had to sketch and paint each other. I thought it was a cute date idea! Eric just could not understand how she thought he would enjoy something like that. I told him maybe he was being tested to see how open minded he could me. Men say they are open to new things, some mean open to new sexual things.

It can be tricky planning a date for a man.  I don’t know how guys do it all the time for us picky – sometimes hard to please people. Where do men go on dates to have fun?

Guys, how open are you to date activities that are a little unorthodox? Would you mind trying a new experience? Do you like it when the women you date introduce you to new things?

Durty – I usually have yogurt and a banana for breakfast with my cup of hot green tea. What else would Dr. D suggest for morning fuel?

Leggs – I was thinking spaghetti too, which that sounds Mmmm mmmm good by the way. But I saw a bbq chicken recipe on fb I wouldn’t mind trying. I was too lazy to cook anything yesterday so i sprung for some brown stewed chicken from the island spot.

-Leggs Your dinner does sound yummy. Yesterday I made Chiptole Barbeque Chicken, Baked Beans, Honey Glazed Carrots, Pasta Salad and Crescent Rolls. Out of what I just mentioned there is ONLY chicken left, so I’ll be back in the kitchen making sides this evening, LOL!

I believe the company is a far more important than the activity. If a dude is not really into you, you could take him to game 7 of the NBA finals and it still won’t change his level of interest.

Grown people struggling to come up with ways to have fun, really? Seems a bit remedial.

On the other hand,

Dear AJC,

Between late deliveries of the morning paper and now requiring people to sign up in order to read stories online, thus providing you with marketable information about what your readers tend to follow, it seems you’re trying to run off the remaining market that you have. What’s up with that?

button – share my feelings? lol. do you mean did I huff and puff and fuss and call my friend out for an (innocent or not so innocent) mistake? I sure as heck did. I also could have got in my car and went on home but AS A FRIEND I took it for the team and sat through the game, ate my nachos, talked about folks and cheered occasionally.

yesterday must have been spaghetti day. I put a few meatballs in a pot myself yesterday. lol.

Button its all in the mindset, this is probably a new relationship so she was trying something different. No one is going to get it right all the time, so why not enjoy the time together.

Finals game 7 tickets, I am down. Where do I sign up at..

O.K. I am going to stop at Leggs for spaghetti with an excellent choice of white wine today
Then stop at MissMoni house tomorrow for whatever she is cooking because she is cooking up a storm. MissMoni what shall I bring.

ladies I will do some maintenance around the house as well…..

O.K. meeting time! toodles, later kiddies, BBL. I know I am missing something!

leggs – speaking of friends. a friend called me Friday re a domestic situation. she sounded cool enough. Saturday morning she called in tears, I couldn’t even understand her. what did I do? told her to get off my phone and call me back when she got herself together. lol. when she got it together what did I do? I called her out for being soft. crying over that bs, same daggone problem over and over again. man the eff up. yep. that’s just how I do.

Durty – I don’t they they are kids but adults who can speak up and say what they like or dislike. now if Eric said he that he didn’t have a taste for the arts somewhere in the mist of their conversations and she took him there anyway, well it’s on her. which will be a prime example of a person trying to turn you into who they want you to be.

I mentioned on here the guy I went out with who I told I wasn’t fond of Chinese food and then he took me to his favorite Chinese place because he felt I just had to try it. lol. needless to say I didn’t go out with him again though it wasn’t all because of his restaurant choice.

Hello all

Disco we’re here (LOL)

On topic, diva makes it hard to give good opinions. Was this a first date, or were they in a relationship? How was this young lady supposed to know what he likes. On my first few dates, we’re going to do something that I like, so if things don’t work out at least I had a good time. And if she does speak up and tell me she doesn’t like, I wouldn’t have a problem with that, probably won’t be anymore dates either. (LOL)

First date take me to game 7, I’ll grin an bear it and enjoy the food and drinks (disco)

2 year relationship take me to game 7, umma look at you like you crazy!

So what works for one will not work everyone.

Yea disco, hate folks crying about the same ole problems, either change it or shut the eff up!!

D – that’s not butch. that’s real. we’ve been friends for years. she’s had this exact same problem for years. I’ve put my two cents in on how to deal with it and she agrees but doesn’t have the backbone to do it. then the mess hits the fan (repeatedly) and she’s crying the blues. I’m your friend, I’ve got your back but really, this is some stupid mess. handle it.

Single – Yeah, I think Diva should start giving us more of a background of these folks. Like someone mentioned earlier, if buddy expressed no desire for the arts at all, seems like ya setting yourself up for failure by planning a artlike date.

s/h – you funny too but you right. I didn’t cry when I got whoopings. I was too stubborn. oh and my labor was a piece of cake. I remember thinking what the heck have all these women been whining about. having a baby ain’t nothing.

Single – On my first few dates, we’re going to do something that I like —are you serious? why not just date yourself if it’s like that? lol

Leggs, I see we both were wrong, She probably needs some restasis to produce some tears.

Slim yea bad choice for her, you don’t surprise someone with a date that you like. Now I will surprise my S/O with a date that I don’t like to make them happy or do things because they want to do them. but that’s what you do in relationships, not all about you.
