  1. #9 cracked me up because I fought my man's attention since he's nearly 7 years older than me. Obviously, I got over it...it helps that he doesn't have gray hair, like my dad. lol!

  2. Guilty as charged on women's excuses #1, #8, and #10. But seriously, what the fuck, the guy played a dulcimer. What was I supposed to do?

    I once had a guy give me a variation of the male "I'm celibate" excuse. I'm quoting directly here, "I used to be in a Catholic seminary, and I could NEVER FORGIVE YOU if we had sex if you didn't want to get married." Fucking cocksucker, his dick could do the fucking but he couldn't forgive me? He was lucky I didn't run his ass over that night.

  3. J.J.: & years doesn't seem like a lot to me.

    Kirby: I wish I had a buck for each time I heard "I don't think of you in that way". I could buy Microsoft!

    And I think you really should have slept with that guy, then gone Lorraina Bobbet on him.

  5. He asked why I had a problem with the age thing and I said, "I don't want to be a young widow."

    Keep in mind, this was on the 1st date and I had already told him that I had no desire to get married. I'm still shocked that he didn't run away, screaming, at my logic. lol!

  6. That reminds me of a line from "Fear of a Black Hat," which was pretty much the rap version of Spinal Tap.

    "What's the difference between a whore and a b*tch? A whore is a woman who'll sleep with anyone. A b*tch is a woman who'll sleep with anyone but you."

  8. @ J.J. - you told him you had no desire to get married. I think that was exactly why he stuck around, lol! You said exactly the right thing. :)

  9. Y'know, there may actually be a grain of truth to some of that.
