I’ve come to the point where the majority of my friends are engaged or soon to be. That leaves me with a handful of close friends left not dating anyone with everyone asking why?
Why? That’s a great question. I don’t really have an answer except the right person hasn’t been found. But have I been actively trying to find someone? Not really. I’ve chased a few but only to find out that they were not interested.
This is my current dilema with dating. Its time consuming and I think the “Traditional” way of starting a relationship blows. When do I really think I want a girlfriend, when its Friday or Saturday night and I dont want to go out. All I want to do is to enjoy a nice meal and watch one of the dozens of TV series in 5 seasons behind. But how do you get to this point, you have to do the mid week dating and drinks when everyone is busy and try to read their thoughts and emotions from a text and timing of texts of how fast and when they send it. I don’t have time for this nor do I enjoy this. I would assume girls hate this BS as well. And we all know that everyone hates talking on the phone where you can actually get a decent read of how the other person is feeling.
Is there a way start dating a girl and cut the BS drinks and dates in the beginning? See if the Friday/Saturday take out/tv show marathons works first. I promise ill take you out to fun events and dinners once we know each other and can honestly tell each other how we feel about the plans for the night without offending each other or playing mind games. Then, we wont be harassing our friend to try to make a fun night to impress someone on a date. We would be able to do go to parties and events as they naturally happened and they would actually be really fun and not feel forced. I’m probably totally off on this thought but maybe not.
I think the one of the best things I did when I was younger was to work. I think it helped create the work ethic I have today and give me a sense of value in live. I had jobs from mowing lawns, pushing carts, bagging groceries, life guard, restaurant cook, bartender, restaurant and bar manager, caterer etc. I was thinking the other day how I wish I still had summer vacations where I can get an odd job for a few months. I always loved and enjoyed seeing the inner workings of a business and what makes them functional and profitable. Also the perks that every job has. I think the best perks I had at a job had to been the free food working at a restaurant.
I was a a fruit market the other day and saw all the workers that got to work with the produce all day and they all seemed rather happy. I wouldn’t mind working at a fruit and vegetable market.
On another note. Why did girls always get the super kush job of babysitting. My sisters would always get asked to babysit but I only got asked maybe once when all the neighborhood girls were unavailable and I was the absolute last option for my neighbors. When I grow up, I’m going to ask only guys to babysit my kids. I think I would have been a way better babysitter than most girls. Guys have more fun and are more creative anyway. Everyone can order pizza hut for the kids too.
Elephants’ deepest calls can thunder up to 6 miles (10 kilometers) away. Now, researchers have learned for the first time how the massive animals produce these sounds.
It turns out that they do it in the same way that humans talk, pushing air through their vocal cords to make them vibrate. Elephants can go much lower than humans, however, because their vocal cords are eight times longer.
"The sounds the elephants make are off the piano keyboard," said study researcher Christian Herbst, a voice scientist at the University of Vienna, Austria. In fact, at less than 20 hertz in frequency, the main components of these ultra-deep calls aren’t detectable to the human ear.
