If I had been wired, I'm sure my blood pressure would have been shown to spike every time he opened his mouth. They almost literally swooned at the guy's lavish praise for his main squeeze. He turned out not to be so sensitive but rather a "narcissist" -- her word. His comments about dating weren't exactly bolts of wisdom worthy of interrupting our regularly scheduled programming, but they were okay, pretty much what one would predict from a guy so clearly eager to score points -- and perhaps dates -- from his listeners. The boyfriend of her friend seemed a little shy and seemed not to want to be there, and his advice was bland but fine. Lather on the praise to the point of suffocation and chances are most people are left too breathless to wonder what it really says about the one doing the praising. But I do blame the gullible women in the audience for buying the snake oil, and especially his then-girlfriend -- a 'dating coach," remember? I tend to be pretty direct, and believe if women want the male perspective, I should offer it warts and all. I could have told you this eventual outcome just listening to his Ode to My Amazing Girlfriend yammering on the panel. Most of us work full or part-time, juggle a mortgage or rent with paying bills and often without help from the children's father.It is sufficient for most of us that you can pay for a date – and the decent ones amongst the sisterhood will definitely return the favour when they can.The act of union was deal with Pacta conventa, by which institutions of separate Croatian statehood were maintained through the Sabor (an assembly of Croatian nobles) and the ban (viceroy).In addition, the Croatian nobles retained their lands and titles.
Most single mums are only concerned about whether they have to taxi their own way home, or prevent a potential new man in their life from hitting them up for money.
I've given up dating for the time being because…well…it's just too hard. I've done the rounds of dating websites a few times, been on a few dates and decided that the Next Best Thing is just going to have to walk into reception where I work, make eye contact with me and decided that I too am the Next Best Thing. Firstly, don't mention the ex, except in passing, maybe in connection with any kidlets you've made together. And strangely enough, my sympathy levels drop quite low having listened for an hour to this drivel on an unsuccessful date some time ago. So long as you don't refer to them as ungrateful, little shits, or how That Bitch never lets you see them. Kids are great and I get along with most ages, having two of my own of widely spaced ages.
I thought that those men making the momentous decision to look for a new partner might like to know a few things I've learnt from my little expeditions into the world of singles and so I've made a list. Certainly, refrain from referring to her as That Bitch and please please don't tell me about the whole family law court proceedings you've been through and how she wiped you out. Coupled with the fact that he let a fly sit on his face for minutes at a time just put me right off. If all goes well, I'll look forward to meeting your kids, seeing how you are with them, how they are with you, and later if all goes well, you will have the pleasure of meeting my two oddball children.
