    Another LOVE thread

    So when you say you've been dating for a month, is that like you've gone out 4 or 5 times? A month is way too soon to be pondering the 'love' issue with anyone but yourself. The first thing you should be doing is talking with her to figure out if this is even a 'boyfriend/girlfriend'...

    Man Oh Man This is Killing Me.............

    Just another piece of advice on this whole thing from someone who hates games but realizes the necessity of going along sometimes... I think this is obviously a game and not a malicious one at that. She just doesn't want to seem overly anxious which is fine. Over time that should disappear on...

    Man Oh Man This is Killing Me.............

    I suppose that she could just be old fashioned and want you to make the first move. I doubt it though. Not if she offered you her number. I still think she'll call. My problem and the reason for my initial response is this.... We all have female friends who've been really interested in some...

    Man Oh Man This is Killing Me.............

    My standard rule is no way. If a chick is really interested in you, there's no way, even if she's nervous, that she's not going to call you back. The other option is to wait until a time you know she's not home and leave a message then for her. She disregards two messages? Forget it. This...

    Picking a golf training aid

    Have you seen the Swing Jacket? www.swingjacket.com I haven't really used one but today I borrowed one from a guy I work with. Normally, I don't really believe in these 'shortcuts' but this has been recommended to me by some very good golfers as a way to show you what an on-plane swing...

    Why do people get so excited about getting a tax refund?

    One point for me is that with interest rates where they are currently, you really are just talking pennies.

    How long are prescription meds good?

    I've had this conversation with a good friend who's a pharmacist. His response is that it's required for FDA approval. Since they don't want to have the product in testing for a long period of time, they'll test it for a couple years or so and if it's still fine, just throw that date on the...

    "Southwest will charge large fliers extra fare" - What is your opinion?

    Upon reading both of our points, I want to clarify something. If I was sitting next to someone who wanted it down and for some odd reason, I wanted it up, I would offer to flip a coin (as an example of a fair settlement). To be honest, I've never tried to move it up or down mid flight. Always...

    "Southwest will charge large fliers extra fare" - What is your opinion?

    A couple of thoughts. Patrick_S, All I can say that you're lucky you haven't been seated next to me. I don't mean that quite the way it sounded by the way. It's just that it's my armrest too and I can have it any way I want. In your situation, I'd probably offer to flip a coin or...

    Fitted/Tapered dress shirts

    Depending on budget, you might try a local tailer. I found that dress shirts last me a number of years so it's worth spending a little extra. My local guy makes them for less than $100/shirt. Way cheaper than upper end dept store generic shirts and they are both the material I like and...

    ***Official 3rd Annual HTF October Scary Movie Challenge***

    Graduating, need advice

    tips for looking for work (some of which has already been said:) 1. Look at small companies. Not only because they may be more apt to be hiring right now but they also allow you to gain valuable experience in several areas - an opportunity that you wouldn't get at a major corporation. 2...

    This Is A Bit Scary... (DC Sniper merged thread)

    Does anyone else think that the whole 'tarot card I am God' thing may have been left there for a purpose as opposed to by accident? Maybe trying to mislead the profiling being done? It just sounds a little manufactured to me.

    Anyone have one of those new front loading washer machines?

    I also use the Neptune and went with a cheaper dryer. It does use about half the soap and in Oregon, you get a state tax credit which makes it a pretty attractive deal.
