    Well, with the economy being what it is...

    Add not an alcoholic to that and you have the perfect man.

    You'd better watch out for those FSU leads, though. lash tried to hook me up with some guy she knew but later admitted she thought the guy was a douche. (Boy, was I glad that didn't pan out.) It's just that I played piano...I think. This was a long time ago, I don't really remember anymore. Maybe if lash checks this out she'll set me straight.

    You're looking at this the wrong way! I once dated a guy who was very, shall we say, accomplished, and he credited his skillz to that nice older lady who took him under her wing once upon a time. I said, "Skategods bless you, nice cougar lady!" Think of it as charity work, your way of giving back to the female community.

    I have one for you. The good news is that he has hair. The bad news is that it is on his back and in his ears and his nose.

    Been there, done that, don't care to repeat the experience, thank you very much. There's just something squicky about this guy. I mean, what kind of occupation is "inventory"? I figure it's a euphemism for "stock boy at Walmart."
    I'd rather be thought of as absolutely ridiculous than as absolutely boring.

    My latest hilarious experience is too long to post here, but my tumblr page has a hilarious story on it from a real winner's profile.
    Give me one more quiet night, before this loud morning gets it right, and does me in.

    Granted, it's not the job, it's the attitude. I sometimes talk with our housekeeping supervisor when I stay late at work and even though all he does he pick up our trash, vacuum, and mop, he's so enthused about it. Not that janitorial work is his passion, but if you're gonna do something, put some pride and effort into it, ya know? Otherwise you're just unnecessarily making your life feel useless and miserable.

    It's hard not to admire someone who has that kind of philosophy, no matter what job they have. My bf is an aerospace engineer and the way he talks about his job, it seems like he's going in every day to get his teeth pulled. At least he is passionate in programming something else as a hobby, otherwise I would have dumped him early on for being a sad pathetic sack.

    Might be, but I actually know someone who works for a business that does nothing but inventory. They shut down closing stores, basically, controlling all the inventory so the employees don't steal it all and so that profits/losses are controlled by a disinterested party (important in bankruptcy cases).

    Yeah, I didn't know there was such a business, either, but she is busy all time and will happily talk your ear off about inventory control any time you ask (and even if you don't).

    PML!!!!! I burst out laughing at the first set of "mmmmmmmm's"

    I can't believe this guy is serious! Don't these men have any sense of reality?!?! I met my boyfriend after a very brief online dating stint. That was nearly four years ago, and I forgot about how many crazies were in the online dating world!

    OH!!! Dave!!! I didn't meet him on match.
    Dave was a co worker of my then (now ex) boyfriend who is still my BFF.


    I did not meet Dave online, and while still a total douche he is now married. Thanks for making me feel REALLY old.

    Sorry, judging by your bf's hobby he still qualifies as a sad sack. However he is cute. So you can keep him

    Really, Kruss, you are far too picky. Here we have a fabulous guy who will BUY YOUR GAS--and not just your mileage, but a FULL TANK OF GAS, plus give you $1000 if you don't think he's good looking enough.

    AND he is willing to share $6000 worth of toys with you! Including one expensive MACHINE he bought in California with you (even before meeting you).

    What do you want, woman? Blood??????
