Then please share some with your friends, as well as the leaves in case they have any nude statues or paintings lying about.
We all got jars of fig jam, too. But not leaves. The Texas government confiscated those for its paintings.

Should have left it as it was, then; much more witty. Never apologize for your best jokes.

good advice, done. :)

I don't give a fig.

All due respect - I laughed out loud at these posts. There's just something faintly ridiculous about this idea, I guess? I've started dating people in, uh, June, June, April, and May, so ... does that mean spring is my thing? Never once have I thought of it that way before. And this is in Texas where it's so darn hot that even sitting next to someone gets unbearable. Thank goodness for air-conditioning.

I know it sounds ridiculous, but it's so true! I do better when there's a nip of coldness in the air. (Waits for endless parade of jokes at my expense.) ;D

Anyway, I have been dating someone for a month and a half and it's been going pretty well. She has a PhD and a house with a fig tree, and we're talking about getting Dallas Symphony season tickets together. No complaints!

This is great to read, Brian. I hope things go well for both of you.

Cool. Enjoy it. And no matter what, remember to keep breathing.


Okay, Tindr update. My approach is less than thoughtful and consists of swiping right on every profile until I can no longer do so. I returned to it later and began sifting for prizes...
The results: the vast majority have been bots, which I expected. And I wished I knew how to screencap on my new elite deluxe a-go-go cellphone, because I amused myself by trying to engage a bot in a discussion about Mahler. Sadly, whatever database they're using isn't big enough yet and the only on topic reply was 'me too!' and then a URL where I could buy a speaker to use in my shower.
A few other replies, from humans. One seemed okay, but she ended the conversation abruptly because I'm well under six foot tall. Another one was skilled at the ol' myspace angle - the hell with that. There was a nice lady I spoke to twice because she and I immediately recognised each other as kindred spirits, however she was too far away.

The nice blonde lady of my recent acquaintance has emailed and asked if I can "...be ready in about an hour?" - for what? The mind boggles... But apparently she has tickets for an event and wants to take me to it. Okay, decide what to wear = one minute, 4th movement of Brahms Op. 25 = about eight minutes but we'll call it nine, eat a banana = who the hell knows? Three minutes? And maybe another banana of approximately the same size and so another three minutes. Do as many push ups as possible in one minute, shower and shave = 20 minutes, get dressed = five minutes, Drink one pint of milk = one minute. And that leaves me 17 minutes to do dumbbell drop sets for the pump (all my secrets are coming out now) with the weights I keep behind the front door and then affect an air of "It's all a mere bagatelle..." before she arrives.

Lol, I somehow doubt that he of all people would be interested in dating women anyway.

I gave her my number the first time we met. A few days later she sent me a number of SMS messages. She now knows that the best way to contact me is by email, because I don't always carry a phone with me.

'Insecurity and desperation.' Well, every morning last week I'd arrive about 20 or 30 minutes before everyone else and go straight to the waiting room. Then I'd enter the single cubicle toilet, where I'd lock the door behind me, take my shirt off and then perform a sets of pullups to failure on the frame of the aforementioned cubicle. After that, a few sets of dips on the sink countertop, a quick wash down and then possessing some swole I'd return to the room. Insecurity and desperation. Okay. But I enjoy the attention of women.   8)
A petite 'soccer mom' type always sat beside me and I'd put down my paperback (usually Hemingway ;D) and tell her absolute crap impart pleasantries such as "You know, in the course of a week I used to see many different colours and tones and shades of nail varnish (What the f*** am I saying? :laugh:) and so I can state with confidence that your choices are consistently cool and attractive".
   :laugh:

I suppose I can post something here since this is another form of snyprrr's old thread: More Girl Problems (http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,24205.msg886462.html#msg886462), but, from what I can tell so far, this is a much more positive thread than that old one. ;) I met a woman yesterday and she's a new associate at the store I work at and she is absolutely beautiful. She has me quite smitten and I think she feels the same way I do. We both seem to make each other smile like two bashful school children. Anyway, I asked her her out and she said yes, but now it's just a matter of when we'll be going out. Both of our schedules don't really allow us to see each outside of work. She works 3 PM - 12 AM and I work 1 PM - 10 PM. I'm usually off Sundays and Mondays and her schedule seems to fluctuate a lot. I really hope we can figure this thing out, because yesterday I was about ready to just kiss her right in front of everyone. :D

Awesome! And may I suggest you guys go out for breakfast? No rules saying that evening is the only romantic time of day.

This thread is more like Girl Solutions ;)

Breakfast or even lunch is a good idea. I suppose my main problem (or that seems the biggest mental hurdle at the moment) is she's younger than me and when I say younger I'm talking 10 years. I like her but I'm probably not going to actually pursue her because of this difference in age.
