[qoute] Sometimes men are more high maintenance than women. I know it may be a shock to learn, but it's true!

I'd rather be happy than correct.
No man ever "won" an arguement with any woman.

When we have been willing to admit our guilt, it is always easier to defend our innocence.

Don't let nostalgia fool you into "going back again". Nothing and no one was ever perfect.

My mother told me that if you are calling on a woman, make sure you are a half hour late, that way you only have to wait a half an hour.


And I liked the one my mother told me mandrake. I was pouting around because my steady girlfriend of almost 2 years broke up with me back when I was all of 15. She asked me if I wanted her back. Of course I did! I mean I was so much in love! So she told me that if you want that girl bad enough to run FROM her as fast as you can until you catch her! Then she explained.....Do not let her see you so depressed and sad over losing her. Be happy, whistle as you pass her in the school halls, say Hi Gayle! As if you are happy and on top of the world.
Well what did I have to lose, so I tried her plan. Do you know before the day was out, she passed me a note telling me she wanted to see me after school. Yep, we got back together because I ran from her as fast as I could! lol Oh, it only lasted about another 2 weeks. But by then I was out of love with her. lol
But wow! My mom was a smart lady!

I've learned that most people aren't good listeners. After observing the habit of waiting to talk and not really listening in other people, I've tried to improve my own skills. There's a big difference in hearing and listening.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Embrace all equally!

Dont marry the first guy that comes along, and if you have to talk him into kissing you the first time , chances are he will be a dud in bed

Finish school and get a career going

Travel before getting married , you might marry a man that is a homebody then you'll be stuck at home the rest of your life

have fun and date a lot and get a lot of tastes of a lot of flavors before settling down with one flavor.

Many things I've Learned over the years have stuck and have paid in dividends. Four here:

When a door closes, another will open. And usually that door closes for a reason-- live with it. Learn from it. Be excited about the next adventure. Move on.

Laugh. It warms the heart.

Learn to love that person looking back at you in the mirror each morning. Hey, that face is the only one that can make faces at you, with open-mouth full of toothpaste, and get away with it.

Learn something of value from all you meet.

Don't intentionally hurt anyone.

Watching old episodes of Outer Limits, Twilight Zone, and Star Trek or watching old movies like The Bride of Frankenstein or King Kong (my uncle had a projector and used to show them to us kids...these were the ones before 'talkies') makes me laugh, because they were so cheesy. But the great special effects and technology of today is rooted in those oldies and the things being accomplished now wouldn't be possible if those 'relics' hadn't been the testing ground.

Keep it simple stupid!

Stop to think, and think to stop!

After reading comments on a lot of other threads

I've learned...

Way too many POF names have the word Angel in them (as if!). But I guess no one would want to use the name, 'Slut Ho', would they?



Update: I just did a search (should have done it before I commented!) and there are several names containing slut. Wow...who'da thunk it???

It's ok to be alone at times to sit quietly with yourself and rejuvenate. Sometimes it's necessary to withdraw from others temporarily in order to keep your sanity. It doesn't mean you're anti-social or withdrawing from society, it just means you need a break from all the nutcases around you.
(Of course, everything in moderation, my dears)
