Do you cook for your lady? And I am not talking about opening a bag of frozen pasta either. I am referring to taking the time and having to look up a few things (if needed) and making a good home cooked meal.
Why am I posting something like this you might ask? Well I love to cook for one and I am creative when I cook in the kitchen. For the guys who do this, you know it requires prep time, good ingredients and last but not least, patience. Lets say you want to cook a filet mignon with homemade mashed potatoes with a wine reduction sauce. You are looking at at least an hour o f cook time, depending on if you are doing everything at once or cooking one thing at a time.
Big whoop only an hour? Well here is one way you can look at it, your lady will appreciate it for one, secondly you are taking your time and doing something special for her, thirdly you are being creative and showing you know how to cook stuff (besides boxed mac n cheese). Now I am not saying you have to cook her up something every night, but do it maybe once a week or twice. But be sure to be creative when you do. Personally I will watch YouTube for hours until I find something I know I will enjoy for one. But you have to make sure she will like it too, and make sure she is not allergic to anything you make. The last thing you want to do is have to rush your lady to the ER for having a swollen throat preventing her to breathe.
Thanks Steve? Who is Steve? Steve is a chef I watch on YouTube and he gives me ideas for what I can cook up at home for myself, a party or that night with the girlfriend in the future. You can watch his videos on YouTube, here is the link to his channel. http://www.youtube.com/user/stevescooking
Hey everyone sorry I have not been on here in about a month or so. I have been busy for the past few weeks and what not. So getting down to the post, it is about something that happened a few nights ago. I was hanging out with a friend of mine, she is someone who I do like and would not dating her. We could not hangout at her place or mine because of reasons, so we hungout in her car. A little hangout turned into an adventure. At first we were talking, then we both got hungry, so why not get Chick-fil-A before they close? We then went back to where she lives and had our food and talked some more. Then we got on the topic of what we both want in a relationship.
After exchanging thoughts and what not on what we want and deserve in a relationship I found myself playing with her hair and she was brushing mine as well. Then the rain started to fall, which I did not know it was suppose to rain. Then we reclined the seats back and kept on talking, but with the “I want to kiss” look on both of our faces. We did not kiss at any point while we were together that night. But when I left I started playing music in the car, when it hit me. How long it had been since I had really one on one been with a girl alone. It had really made me depressed in a way, since I know I won’t ever get with this girl since she is seeing someone. But I keep my head up strong wondering when the next opportunity is gonna be.
Imagine it being a very pleasant day in the Spring time, the days of going outside more are happening. We can say it is a beautiful Saturday afternoon and You and I get together at the park for the day. The wind is blowing just a little, just enough for your hair to hit my arm as we hold hands walking. We sit down on one of the park benches and start talking about how bitter of a Winter we had and how we are finally glad Spring time has arrived. After awhile we decide to walk around some more, but as the sun starts to set we decide to grab some dinner. We go to a local diner that we have loved since kids and never get anything different than from what we love. As we are eating, I tell you I have a surprise for you. Your eyes get big and look at me. Thinking I am showing you here and now, I tell you I have to take you to it. Maybe an hour later or so we leave, going to my car so I can take us to what I had mentioned at dinner, we drive south, away from town. As Soon as we leave the city and county, you begin to wonder where I am taking you. I tell you “Not to worry, I think you’ll like this”. It’s about 7 PM and the sun is completely gone at this point, I make a turn off of the highway onto a dirt road. Moments later we arrive at what looks like someones house with a lot of land. You look out at a picnic table under a tree with string lighting all around it. We get out and I ask if you want a drink, before you can say anything you hear a POP sound and look behind to see me with a bubbly bottle of champagne. We both walk over to the picnic table and I pour us both a glass of wine. You ask me what is the occasion for the champagne, since it was not anything important today or recently. I just simply say as I slightly raise my glass, “Today is a celebration, like everyday for us being together and having the bond we have. The love for each other and the best times in our lives, I want to make a toast to the future for us both, and I love you”. You raise your glass and have our toast. “There is one reason I brought you here though” Apparently you have never been star gazing so that was more the reason to come to the middle of nowhere. The night breeze moves the leaves on the trees around and it begins to cool out a bit. I go in the trunk of my car and grab 2 blankets, we leave our champagne behind and hold hands on this field. We get about 500 yards away from where we were and I set one blanket down for us to lay on, and the other to keep us warm in case if it got cold. So we both lay down holding hands watching the stars, you move closer to me, kiss me on the cheek and tell me you love me….
Asking the special someone out can be a difficult task at times, from when the time is rig ht, location and knowing that you both like each other enough and know each other enough.
So when should you ask her out? Hanging out at a park or playing games? Or maybe at dinner, well personally I think you should when the moment is right. Why do I say this? Well taking a girl out to dinner is nice and so on, but what if the girl you are itching to ask out has maybe had a really bad day. Girls loved to be asked out by the right guy now, but what if her mind is not clear, she might say no but she really means yes?
It’s all about what do you see about her emotions. I asked my what is now ex girlfriend out while one day me and her were at a park on the swing set and i was pushing her, when we stopped we got close and our noses budged each other and I knew I had an good opportunity to ask her out right then and there. So yes I did, she said yes and we kissed at the moment.
But the real kicker here isn’t when do you ask, it’s do you ask? I am a victim to this and know quite a lot of people who are in relationships who just don’t simply ask but just start dating. It goes from the coffee shop smile to maybe dinner at the house with some wine to next thing you know, you are both shopping together and something. Then it might hit you when someone ask “how long have you been dating”? Some or maybe most will base it on first kiss, to first time sleeping together…I just wanted to throw that out there, it might not happen to you but I bet it has to someone you know.
The title of this post might be that women get mad, well actually I am mad at some.
Some of you might know I was seeing a girl, took her out on a date and had a fun time. Does that mean she is my girlfriend? No it does not and that means that she can see other guys and I can see other girls right? Well so I had went out to Starbucks here in Huntsville a few days ago and met a girl who I had been talking for awhile now.
Everything was going good, well until the girl I had took out happened to walk in. I tried my best not to notice her, well that did not go too well. She noticed me sitting down with a beautiful blonde girl laughing and having a good time. All was well until I saw her walking over towards us, again I kept my cool until she said my name. I smiled and said hello back to her and introduced her to my “friend” who I was having coffee with. Needless to say she questioned my “status” with her. I said we were just friends and that I had a fun time and wanted to continue to see other people.
Apparently she had thought that after 1 date, we were boyfriend and girlfriend. Well NO! and then the girl who I was once having a good coffee date with looked like she wanted to get sick. Well after the girl left, I explained to the other girl I had taken her out and that was it. Well now she was thinking I was a “playa” and just wanted her for sex. It actually took until today for me and her to start talking again due to the fact she had gotten the wrong impression of me.
Will I see coffee girl again? I do not know.
Will I see the crazy 1 date girl? Probably not.
This is the latest story that I have written, please let me know if I made any mistakes or typos that Microsoft Word may have missed since I put this together fast.
The Calender shows it is February 14th, the day that love really sparks the air, today is a good day for us all. Like usual it would be a workday so things are normal until the moment you get off. It’s about 4:30 PM and the sun is saying goodbye yet once again and you see me calling. I ask if you are ready for a fun night. I tell you to head home and get ready to go out for dinner. The time shows 5:23 and I arrive at your house, holding a dozen of roses in my hand you open the door to see a well groomed me. We exchange smiles and hug each other saying “Happy Valentines Day sweetheart” I tell you I have a reservation at one of the nicer Italian places in town and ask if that is fine with you. You then smile big and say yes. So we leave in my car and I begin to play some love songs on the radio to get us in the mood. About 20 minutes later we arrive, after getting our table I order us both a bottle of wine. The place we are at is more of the fine dining side and we are surrounded by other couples who are enjoying the night. Knowing everyone looking happy makes me happy too. So after awhile we order our food and just talk about normal things like we normally do. So after a few more glasses of wine and our food, I order some dessert for us both. I also present a little gift for you as well. After we eat our dessert and enjoy the little bit of wine we have left, we decide to leave and head back to my place. Once we get back I make us a few drinks, make a fire in the fireplace, start some Frank Sinatra Love Songs music, light a few candles and dim the lights. We talk a little more and start watching a love movie that is on, during the commercials we would watch the fire and add more wood to it. Looking at your eyes with the light from the fire holding your drink is the most beautiful thing I have seen. We then continue to listen to the music and hear the fire roaring, we look at each other in the eyes, I set my drink on the table down followed by you and I get closer to you. Both smiling I take your hand and move my hand up to your shoulder and move closer and kiss you. We begin to kiss a little more and it seems as if the heat from the fireplace just went up significantly. I whisper in your ear “I love you” and then move your head to my ear and whisper “I love you too”. We then get up, taking the last sip from our drinks and decide to go in my room where I have a few candles lit from earlier, sitting on the side of my bed I begin to rub my finger tips up and down your arm and hand. You look up at me and kiss me….
Hey everyone, hope your week is going good. Well I must say mine is going very good. Last night I went on a date with a girl who I had been talking to for awhile. We had a fun time, I won’t get into details or anything.
So now she wants to see me again..Well, I do too and this is where my brain is coming to a halt. I am having a hard time trying to figure out where I should take her next. Yes I said it, The Hopeless Romantic has stalled out on a date! I blame it on the bitter cold weather we have been having and the lack of things to do in Huntsville, Alabama.
So I am asking myself “Why can’t I think of somewhere to take her?” I blame this on the fact that I have not dated in awhile and I don’t want to go ahead and take her to the nicest place in town, not yet at least. But is this normal? Is it because I am racing my mind on things we can and maybe can do? Am I just trying to make this perfect? Well yes I am, but I need to do this step by step.
The good thing I like about this gal? She likes Romance, I told her how I love it. We have exchanged ideas and things we both want to do, to make an event really Romantic. I see hope finally..
Hey everyone hope everyone is doing good. I know I am since tomorrow is my Friday
This post is regarding a issue most people including myself deal with. The issue is simple and is misleading for some, but when it comes to dating, the one thing is looks that gets to some people.
Yes all want the hottest thing out there, whether for the girls, its a guy with slick long hair with a 6 pack. Or for the men, it’s the girl with the perfect rack and butt. I know I like mine with a little of both
But when it comes down to chemistry, it is one thing to find someone who is really beautiful and things don’t work out from the first date on. But what if you met a guy/girl who was not exactly what you wanted in looks, but had the chemistry to match what you would want in a relationship? Some or maybe most would say no in maybe a polite way.
So how does an issue like this get fixed? Well we could tell everyone to start working out and eat better as a starter. But I think people need to realize that that one person who might not be 10 on there scale but maybe a 6 or 7 could be there future husband/wife.
Another thing that helps in some ways is growing up. As we all get a little older in life we do notice that we can’t be alone forever so we do kinda lower our standards a bit. Well I have at least, and no it is not because I have been single for quite some time either. But I would date that one girl who I would not back when I was 18, well maybe depending on how much she has changed.
Does anyone have suggestions on anything I should post or have anything they want to say? Just let me know. I am always looking for new ideas to write about.
As the internet has well changed society and is more involved in our lives, it opens a door for those who are looking for love.
Online dating has changed the way some or most of the human population dates these days. I have seen on TV for one of those dating sites how 1 of 4 relationships are started from online dating services. Personally I use a online dating site, I have met I think 3 girls from it and they went nowhere. We mostly hung out and just went on from there.
Where do you meet? I suggest somewhere that is going to have quite a few people in it, like a coffee shop. I met one girl back in 2010 at a festival and she was with some of her friends and we actually had a fun time that day. I sometimes talk to the other people who were with her on Instagram.
They don’t look, well exactly how the picture looked. With the way most of us look or want to look these days, you will most likely see the picture of someone when they looked best. I like to asked for a updated picture in a good way. No need to be rude about it. This is something that can even ruin the whole thing from the get go for some people out there.
But one other thing about online dating that I think makes us all mad is when you encounter fake or bot profiles. I see them every once in a while and boy is it annoying. Nothing makes me more mad than seeing of them pop up saying they want to meet or sent me a message that makes no damn sense.
Another thing that you have to make sure about the person you are meeting, is it going to work out in the end? The biggest obstacle of dating period is, what happens next? I have seen people think they met the love of there life and then a few months, if that long period and they go right back on those sites and then a few days later they are are it again.
February 14th is a day some or most of us tend to love, I post this ahead of Valentines Day on purpose. I was looking at my calender just now actually and noticed that Valentines Day is just over a month away. To be honest here, I have never done anything with a girl on Valentines Day. Shocking since I am The Hopeless Romantic? Well reason being is simple actually. I have always been single around this time of the year which is a trend for me I wonder.
I know I am not the only one who misses out on taking a beautiful person out to dinner with a big box of chocolates on this special day. Trust me, it is depressing to have to sit around at home drinking wine all by yourself looking at the one you wish you could be with right then on your phone. It depresses me a lot actually.
However I do think this years will be quite different, I might just have a good Valentines day. The girl who I was on the phone with while writing this post and you know who you are..I think we can make this years pleasant with each other
Part 2 of this post will consist of a Romance Story that I am starting on tomorrow. It will be posted within a few weeks.
