And if you really want to wow the ladies, talk about their age, the obviousness of their gray hairs and if they want a gym membership for valentines day instead of the traditional box of chocolates.
You amaze me, Naomi. Your observations (posts) are quite brilliant.
You are lucky, young one. A sense of humor will help you get through life.
BTW, I didn't believe it, but depthy is a real word!!
I feel you! I try to fill the first couple meetings with some sort of activity, even if it only a walk. I try to do intriguging activites, but the CM ladies can be very non-adventurous (if you don't want to go to a resturant you haven't been to before, or will only meet in a mall and want to stay in a mall, or you won't go for a walk in a park, you are non-adventurous) I choose activites as a substitute for small talk. I know I am interesting, I want to find out if the gal I stopped everything to hang out with is interesting.
That said, I bet I came off as boring because I small talk is a challange. First off, don't assume the woman you meet aren't thinkers, ask them what they are thinking about.
I don't think the CM ladies are "non -adventurous"! I feel it could be a safety issue for women. After all, when we meet someone for the first few times, we are aware of our safety and want to make sure we are secure in our meetings. What is wrong with walking in a public place like a mall? It has air conditioning and heating and is a comfortable setting. Just saying!
This is where a website like CM can bring tremendous value to a relationship in its early stages. Read a woman's profile carefully, and make note of things she likes/enjoys/values that are compatible with your likes/values/etc.
This is why I take a "more is better" approach when putting together my profile (the content, not necessarily the photos). The information in the profiles should be the material that you use to "start a conversation" with someone!
Good job, Tom!
In that case we could decide together how it is donated, spent, saved or invested......
We are both so kind and generous (and now rich!)!! See, Ray, it was a good question afterall!!
