    Seems to me that you very, very ardently tangoed right away from that bullet:) Good for you!

    For a while there, I thought this was going to be a good one. Clearly, I need to air out the testosterone on my first impressions. Next is right!

      To be clear… it was a good story, not a good man. Don’t want you to read that wrong <3

    Darn, now I’ll never know if my husband really wanted to marry me or if we just saw each other too often while we were dating and all the excess estrogen floating around Jedi mind-controlled him into it.

    As I returned to my never-ending project: cleaning out spare bedroom & converting it into my exercise room/study, I found my old belly dancing costumes stuffed into a back corner of closet… What comedy gold THAT would be, if the belt would still fasten around my hips & I tried to shimmy again!
    (At least Middle Eastern dance is performed barefoot or in slippers – as I mentioned, I’d break my neck if I tried to dance in heels! Good for you Jana!)

    Great story. Loved your response, and loved even more that you were straightforward and honest–and humorous at the same time! I spent the first decade of adulthood lying, avoiding, giving false phone numbers, etc., because I was too afraid to just say “no.” When I finally started doing so, it was liberating, Even if the guy didn’t always appreciate my frankness, I know it’s the best way to handle these situations. So kudos to you.

    BTW, I’m a libertarian and I have to say I agree with all of this guy’s political views. (And I am not a racist, a homophobe, or a gun nut.) But I would definitely not have gone out with him again, either. 🙂

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
