Does anyone want to fill in for me on this one?  It would be much appreciated. Also, her real hair color is red if it makes any difference.  Wink

Is this her?



If so then absolutely, positively, right away, please send her my number!

Well that is what she does for a living... 

(and it's quite attractive)

... but alas, she's married.

Also, I was planning to call you up and invite you to a dinner of mushroom soup, sauerkraut and potato varenyky, pickled beets, and pampushky.  But...

I have no wish to go on a date with a married woman. I don't think it's immoral, it's just not for me. I will have to find my Sasha somewhere else...

As for your dinner invitation, take away the mushrooms, sauerkraut, beets and pampushky (which I had to Google) and I accept!

What's you're weight doing that makes it so interesting to watch?  McDonald's??  That won't work--I'm watching your weight, too, though I'm not sure why--when you answer my first question, then I will know.  Grin.  How 'bout I just send you my very, very best wishes and prayers for a long, happy, spiritually rewarding life?

What's you're weight doing that makes it so interesting to watch?

(no joking) My doctor put me on a new diabetes medication and told me that it would curb my appetite and that I would lose weight. It didn't, and for a while I actually gained weight. My doctor was somewhat confused when he was informed of this, and told me to take more of the medicine.

(joking) I think the medicine is trying to trick me somehow, and is using the weight thing to confuse me. Thus the reason I am watching it so closely. McDonalds makes me feel happy, and thus I expect to find it a helpful ally in combating whatever it is that the medicine is up to.

How 'bout I just send you my very, very best wishes and prayers for a long, happy, spiritually rewarding life?

I suppose that will work. Really any of those three would be nice!

Whoa.

Well I guess Allison Holker ain't that bad at all. No coveted 10/10 though. Saw her on a news feed pop-up.

You know who has aged well, like the finest of wines? Marisa Tomeii. I was only a kid when I saw her get the Oscar, but I'll never forget that acceptance speech I thought she was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.

I dare not want to youtube it so it shatters my nostalgia. It probably won't stir the same feelings.

The recent posts that ended in a flame war have been nuked from orbit. Don't revive that discussion. Keep it civil or suffer the severe consequences. This is the last chance for this thread. Thanks for your consideration.

Also, you might want to consider toning down the amount of posts that are less than flattering about women. They too read this thread and are often not amused at what they read.

I think that monogamy is an unnatural feminist invention that benefits females much more than it does men because it ensures that they have someone to take care of them and their offspring because the politically incorrect biological nature of a man is to impregnate as many women as possible to keep the population alive.

Come at me Arachne.

In all reality, I think that while monogamy is biologically unnatural, it's probably the best, fairest institution for both parties because polygamy reduces the diversity of the gene pool and polyandry screws a man over into taking care of a child that's not his.  At least in monogamy, you're both equally miserable.

I think that monogamy is an unnatural feminist invention that benefits females much more than it does men because it ensures that they have someone to take care of them and their offspring because the politically incorrect biological nature of a man is to impregnate as many women as possible to keep the population alive.

Come at me Arachne.

In all reality, I think that while monogamy is biologically unnatural, it's probably the best, fairest institution for both parties because polygamy reduces the diversity of the gene pool and polyandry screws a man over into taking care of a child that's not his.  At least in monogamy, you're both equally miserable.
Dude you are almost there.

I think you should reject both extreme ideals, on one end of the spectrum the celibate monk and the other ONS every woman you meet.

You just gotta be the best man you can be, and that is different for everyone. Not everyone is going to be that husband who worships his wife as some kind of goddess and raising wonderful children. And that's ok.

I don't think marriage these days is worth it outside of the sacramental view of the Church.

Me personally I'm the kind of guy that likes to create a world with one woman, who would be my wife. Make a legacy together and just watch our love flourish and see the fruits of it in our children.

But hey man you are pretty young, I'd go chasing after many women. Go ahead and date multiple women at once, just make sure you are upfront about not being exclusive with any of them. Don't be that guy who says he will be then goes after other women.

Beatrice Arthur

I had a college roommate who had an excessive, almost fetishistic interest in Bea Arthur.  He used to talk about wanting to ask her out, hook up with her, do the honourable thing and marry her, etc.
