Valentine's Day Part Two

I did a post last year about Valentine’s Day and thought I would do Part Two this year. Some of you guys can thank me for this like you did the one last year.

I think Valentine’s Day is a lame, contrived holiday for adults. There I said it and it probably will piss off a bunch of women who have fallen for the marketing strategies of retailers, flower shops, restaurants and such. The worth of the man in their life is what happens on Valentine's Day? Really?

Girls, let me tell you. If you are relying on a man to really step up to the plate and do the whole flowers, candy, jewelry, dinner thing you are short changing him. Do you really want a man in your life who does what a retailer tells him to do to show he cares? Wouldn't you rather he come up with some creative ways of expressing that on any given day of the year?

What about April 9? 

April 9th you say? Yep, just an ordinary day and no special occasion. What happens on that day? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a surprise little something that just says he cares on a nothing day?

Better yet, what do you do for him on Valentine’s Day or April 9th?

Guys, if Valentine’s Day expectations have you stressed you can refer back to my post last year for some great ideas.

You're welcome.

Facebook Dating?

Many months ago my business partner (social media marketing) suggested we use me as a case study for dating using social media. Well, damn if Mark Z hasn't read our minds and all the scuttle butt now is that Facebook is going to be the new and biggest dating site because of their new search feature.

I just stalked myself on my own page to see what my profile and posts would say about me. That was an interesting exercise to say the least.

The first thing I noticed is I would have to post better pictures of myself. I was recently told I was better looking and smaller than I look on Facebook. Figures because many of the pictures were after consuming adult beverages, at a concert where it was 100 degrees and all makeup gone, no makeup to begin with, hair blowing crazy, etc. Another thing is there are none with the famous duck lip thing, none taken in a mirror, none with my boobs hanging out, and none that have been photoshopped which all seem to be essential.

You can determine I am not the "long walks on the beach" person, although I do like that. It seems I just sit on the beach, kicked back with a drink in my hand.

Speaking of drinking, it appears I drink a whole lot more than I really do. Oh wait, I think it may be wine:30 so I need to wrap this up.

I do like gardening, reading, music, traveling, am very patriotic and pretty conservative. My taste in music, books and tv shows are all over the place and pretty eclectic. That all is clear.

My profile doesn't give up much personal information and never has. I have some friends who have changed their relationship status so many times I can't keep up with it. That just seems too high school to me. I don't even show that I am female nor do I use the places thing so you can see where I am at any given moment. That will not bode well for a search engine.

I would not be a good candidate for our companies case study because I am not willing to give up my privacy on Facebook, which is pretty strict, and I am not willing to be guarded about what I post. As I think about it, I am not even into dating much so that just shoots that all to hell.

Single friends - would you use Facebook as a dating site? Single, married, in a relationship or whatever else your profile says, what would your Facebook posts and pictures say about you?

What Not To Text To Women (or just me)

I have a Facebook Friend, actually she is a friend of a friend, who is posting about her dating life on her page. It is quite humorous and she even included screen shots of texts last night.

A couple days ago I was thinking of a post for men about what not to text women because of some texts I had just gotten but wanted to put some more thought into it. Don’t know why I wanted to think about it because for those of you who know me personally you know I talk to think. That in itself gets me into all sorts of trouble because random, honest shit just comes out my mouth and even I am surprised sometimes.

If you have sent me a text, don’t get nervous, I am not going to post your texts here, or at least one of you I won’t because I don’t want to set my laptop on fire. Oh my! That would make me turn 50 Shades of Red. Ok, back to the story before I get distracted and send him a text….

After meeting you for one drink we really don’t want or need your “I want you” text. If we had wanted you it would have been more than one drink. You left the bar, had a few more at home, watched some porn and sent text with one hand. No reply and blocked!

I can't speak for all women but I don't want an "I really think I love you" text after seeing you a couple times. I try to be kind with a reply that "I don't want a relationship at this time and maybe you should move along".

It is not only women who do the stereotypical drunk texting. My experience is that men tend to be pretty good at it. I get random texts from this guy I saw a couple times and he is either high, drunk, or nuts. I have to wonder why his thoughts go to me at that particular time, which is kind of spooky if you think about it.

Another tip is don’t send 5 texts the afternoon of a planned meeting saying how much you are looking forward to it. One will suffice as a confirmation. After 5 texts – cancelled date and blocked. You would be the one who would follow up with the “I want you” text and you would be blocked at that point anyway.

I am not admitting to any drunk texting but I did just install an app on my phone that prevents it. I don’t want to risk my texts as a screen shot showing up on someone’s Facebook page. Even with my drunk fingers I have not done any of the above mentioned - at least I don't think so.

Coffee and no alcohol is making me want to throw caution to the wind and text Mr. 50 Shades of Red so I will see you later.

Lacy Underwear For Men????

According to this article Versace wants men to wear lingerie.

I really only have one thing to say about this. Guys, if your underwear has lace, you ain't ever goin' to see the lace on mine.

End of story.

What The Freak????

What the freak just doesn’t do it. You have to say the real word to make you feel better. So what is up with people who really want to say f**k but say freak instead. 

Hasn’t freak become a bad word now because of how it is used? F**k has become so commonplace in our language it is no longer a vulgar word that would get your mouth washed out with soap. It has become so acceptable the Canadian Press has added usage advice in the Canadian Press Caps and Spelling guide.

My friends know I have a potty mouth and a for certain verbal command of the word f**k and know the proper usage and spelling. BUT, is my “potty mouth” any more dirty than people who use freak as a substitute when they mean f**k. Their mind is thinking f**k and the person hearing it knows they mean f**k - so why not just say it?

So, What The Fuck is up with that?

Sexy Baddassary

It is no secret I have a huge crush on Raylan Givens – the character played by Timothy Olyphant on Justified. Actually, I don’t think it is a crush, I think it truly may be lust. He is the ultimate badass boy in my opinion.
Ultimate Badass
Since the new season of Justified is starting in a few days this is on my mind and while thinking about seeing that sexy Raylan every Tuesday night I thought….damn girl, you have some Raylan’s in your life. I was with two of them recently.

I went out with them for a couple beers and as we walk into the restaurant/bar, the hostesses are almost fighting over who is going to seat us and flirting their cute little 21 year old asses off. It was almost like the other patrons turned at once to watch us walk through the restaurant. Of course, being with these 2 men, we have to sit at a table in the back of the restaurant and wordlessly, they knew who had a gun under their shirt and that one took the seat facing out so as to see everyone else.  I didn’t see if it was a nod or a look but it was acknowledged after we sat down. That would probably freak some people out – knowingly going into a place with someone who has a gun. Do you really think Raylan would be there without his gun? Not a chance! You never know where the bad guys will show up.

I have to say both of these men are Raylan-esque… that a word? They are tall, good looking, sexy and you can look at them and know you really wouldn’t want to get into any kind of fight with them, even a pissing contest. (I will never tell anyone about their soft sides because I have been sworn to secrecy) Now tell me ladies, wouldn’t you be feeling pretty damned good sitting where I was last week? I know the 37 waitresses who showed up at our table thought I was pretty lucky...well, the ones who actually saw me sitting there.

Raylan wrote the book on sexy badassary though so even my 2 badass friends can't divert my fantasies. I would go anywhere Raylan and his gun wanted to take me.

Do you have a Raylan crush/lust for anyone?
