Anna K. in his video is HOT!!! I remember first seeing it a year or 2 ago, and kept thinking to myself, "man, that hot blonde sure looks alot like Anna". Couldn't believe she'd do such a steamy video at the time though. . .

On the topic of hot chicks, my preferences would tend not toward actresses, but toward real people, such as

Sue Bird (http://www.suebird10.net/1suecollegeindex.html), formerly of my Connecticut Huskies, and currently with the Seattle Storm. Smart, beautiful, and athletic. And a good person. Wow!

Then there's Sherri Coale (http://www.soonersports.com/pdf7/9011.pdf?ATCLID=80256&SPSID=2534&SPID=193&DB_LANG= C&DB_OEM_ID=300). Although the coach of a rival school, she embodies the same characteristics as Sue Bird. Too bad she's married.

And there's our own SciFi Chick (http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/babbalbum/detail?.dir=7fff&.dnm=13f8.jpg), who pushed the Babe-O-Meter off its dial!

I'd have to agree with that.


I have to agree with Maksutov on his choices. I prefer women who are more than a pretty face. Unless of course it's Pamela Anderson (scarasm) :^o

I haven't given up at all. I've got three kids to take care of and that takes a lot of time. I know that I'm not over the marriage, so I think it would be wrong to try and start a serious relationship and possibly end up hurting someone.

When in comes to dating, I've always been very sucessful (in a good way), so I'm really not worried. Plus I've got plenty of women friends to talk to, go out with etc.

Just got in a bit of a situation with the girl I've been dating for the past 6 months or so over the issue of "seriousness". She felt I've been pulling back (which I have) and so I had to admit to her that I sensed she was wanting more out of the relationship than I was willing to give right now (I had planned on holding off on this subject until after the holidays). She wasn't very happy to hear that, and left in tears (I hate that. . . ). After a few phone conversations, she realized I wasn't asking to break up with her. I was just stating a fact from my perspective. The ball's in her court now on whether she can live with it, or if she feels she needs to look elsewhere for someone who might be able to give her more devotion.

Hope that doesn't sound cold, but I'm no where near ready for another serious relationship yet (if ever) after only being divorced for a year and a half.

I don't find it cold. I'm just wondering why you didn't tell her how you felt at the very beginning. Or did you?

The last man I was remotely interested in and started dating, was told after the 3rd date that I wasn't interested in anything serious. I explained to him that I work full-time (weird hours), and I go to school full-time (study weirder hours). Not to sound selfish, I just wanted someone to feel intimate with (like a best friend). Someone to hang with during down time, so to speak.

I made it very clear that it could not go any further, as in a serious relationship for at least a year. At first, he was okay with the situation, but quickly realized that I was serious with my work and school schedule. He would create drama, which totally turned me off toward him. I ended up ending it after a couple of months.

I didn't feel bad about the situation, because I told him upfront. Now, I am just going to lay low with dating until June (meaning no dating). Then I will re-evaluate my life. :D

Yep, I did! She pursued me pretty hard last summer, but she wasn't really my type (plus I was still harboring feelings for a girl I dated last Spring). I finally told her outright that I wasn't looking for anything serious, but if she was content to just date and have fun together, I would be willing. She said that was all she was looking for as well. Looking back, I'm pretty sure she was lying (either to me, or to herself) at the time, and as the months went by, she got worse and worse at hiding her feelings. Such things as calling almost every day, getting a bit p.o'd when I'd go off for a weekend with my buddies hunting or what-not, wanting (and succeeding) to introduce me to her family and friends, that kind of thing. . .

Oh, and since I haven't said this yet, yes, she did. I think he needle on mine is stuck, but since there was smoke coming from it, I doubt that the meter would work properly anymore anyway. :D 8-[

My college roommate had an great saying for this situation, "The right person will wait, no matter how long it takes"

Moose
2004-Dec-17, 04:32 PM
A good saying.

Nicolas
2004-Dec-17, 05:10 PM
I personally don't give that saying much value, because I have a different vision about the right person. If somebody loves you (and vice versa), you want to wait with a deeper relation and the person wants to wait as well, he's the right person. If you love each other and you both don't want to wait, he's the right person as well. If you love each other, but one of you does not want to wait and the other wants/must because of various reasons (occupation emotional life) he can still be the right person (you love each other), but you meet each other at the wrong time.

To me it seems very reasonable that you love someone really hard, but you don't want to wait with a deeper relation for some more years, so you let each other go, just not to chain yourself to each other in a situation you don't want with a person you do want. Not a pleasant decision, but certainly not unreasonable. I don't believe in "if you REALLY love each other, you will wait anyhow, and no matter how long". If you don't really have a need for a deep realtionship now, sure you'll wait. But if you're really needing someone who takes care of you (and vice versa) right now, it is very well possible you won't, no matter how happy you would be to be with the person you love now. There is a difference between a person's hopes and his needs.

It's not that I don't believe in waiting, in fact I'm kind of waiting myself for some years because of practical reasons (occupation/geographical). But we agreed from the start how the first years would be. I want someone with me day and night, but I don't NEED one now, so I continue to wait for the broadening of the relationship. If I really NEEDED someone who was always there, I probably would have stopped the current relationship in order to find something that fits my NEEDS better, even if I loved my special one just as hard as I do now.

All I can say, is it is worthwhile waiting for the right person. Waited an awfully long time, unexpectedly, she popped up out of nowheres. (and she can even discuss cosmology and string theory... besides being a fantastic tennis player and darn cute to boot... :D )
