I did give her a compliment and told her she looked good herself. Cause honestly.... she did. Thats when her man came out.



Not her dude.
I promise you if you asked her if she had a man in front of him she would have said no.

I can date you and you not be my man. No cuffing.


Hard to wrap my head around that, cause that sh*t wouldnt fly with me but I know youre right. 100% right.

Funny part was, when I shot her that compliment, she said thank you and got timid. I thought she was going to have that "yeah I know" type attitude.


This is why I'm I married now. I ran up against a man that just was not having it. :lol:


That girl sounds crazy though. Bold then timid?

:lol: You werent playing, it was put a ring on it or Im on to the next.

Yes the timid, thank you, look down avoid eye contact after the compliment made her seem inferior. I wasnt expecting that. Confident men like confident women, so the fact she approached, was refreshing but once she showed the shy, timid stuff it all didnt add up. Maybe she wasnt expecting me to compliment her? Dont know. Ive been told I can be intimidating to approach by a few girls when I was younger but I'd like to think Ive got rid of some of that as I matured.

KoC--update: went there just now, she wasnt there.

Fixed that.

Also, this sounds funny. Most women that approach men are not timid nor shy. Hmmm. Maybe it was a dare by the guy? Maybe she was trying to prove something to him? What her demeanor when she approached you?

Demeanor when she approached me...I was walking out noticed in my peripheral she was coming so I let my arm hang and held the door but not looking back or smiling at her. She said something almost under her breath like uncontrollably blurted it out but just enough for me to hear it. So I stopped and faced her and said something like; what's that? I thought I knew what she said but I was a little surprised so I wanted her to actually say it. She repeated it louder and said a few other things. I smiled, kept it kind of formal and said; "that's a nice compliment, you look good yourself" and was holding eye contact when I said it. Thats when she said thank you broke eye contact and became a little timid (timid may be too strong but shy etc). Which I was a little surprised by. Mind you there was a dude in play here just a few seconds behind her. Not sure how much that affected the interaction.

I doubt she is what youre thinking. And She looked like she could handle herself, not a little girl. But who knows you may be right.

Just curious, when you got your Challenger you didn't like the SGII package or the HK? My oldest son has the R/T Scat Pack and the only option was the HK system. it's nice, 18 speakers, solid sound. Subs are where a spare would be.
If winning matters, the role shouldn't.....the results should.

Nah. Kept it simple and went with a SXT plus package. Wasn't supposed to buy another car at that time since I had just flipped my work car. I liked the way the car looked more than anything. However, I will opt for a more powerful engine next time. I'm keeping the one I have now though too. It still moves.

The way our political system is set up seems to discourage free thinking. The vast majority of people I've spoken to seem to believe their are only 2 sides to any issue. Moreover, they parrot talking points of networks without having any true understanding of the topics and ignore all other media.

It kind of worries me. Things are rarely black and white, they are typically different shades of gray.

This has always been my stance but people don't like when you can look at both sides and call bull.
