I’m Too Old For Free Dinners

With the weekend coming up, I’m sure everyone is starting to make plans for Friday & Saturday night. There’ll be a lot of clubbin’, some partying and plenty of dates. Dating is a lot of fun no matter what age you are, but some dates can be a waste of time.

When I was in college I used to go out with men just to get a free meal. I grew weary of eating cafeteria food but didn’t have the money to eat out. There were plenty of older men who were willing to treat a young lady so I went for it. But then I grew out of that. After I graduated college I went out with lots of men, not for the free food but because I was eager to meet new people and free dinners were very easy to come by. Men who were interested in dating me treated me to all sorts of things, and it was very exciting. But at some point even free meals get old.

Now that I’m at a certain point in my life, I no longer feel the need to go out with a guy just for a free dinner. I’d rather stay home. It takes a lot of time & effort to prepare for a date and sometimes it’s just not worth it. Why spend 2-3 hours with a guy (and sometimes longer) who turns out to be corny or is just a bad date? I would prefer to enjoy my couch & a good movie instead of wasting my time going out. Guys have to remember that time is money, so even though he’s spending money on our date I’m spending my time on him.  As you get older you value your time more and more. And every date is not a good date, even if it includes free food.

There just comes a point when you don’t feel like really dating, even if there’s a free dinner involved.


Why Are You Wearing Cologne To The Gym?

From time to time I like to write about my experiences at the gym. I try to work out about 4-5 days a week so something comes up almost every day. Here are my gym randoms for the week:

  • Men stop wearing cologne to the gym – Spraying an expensive fragrance (or even a cheap one) will never mask the odor of pure funk. Everybody at the gym smells & if you’re working out hard enough you will too.
  • Chest hairs are not sexy – If you have a lot of chest hair or hairy arms please cover that up. Nobody wants to see all that. Leave something to the imagination, guys! T-shirts are sold everywhere so there is no excuse.
  • There should be a minimum amount of weight that a man has to lift at the gym– A man should be able to lift more weight than I can. So if I leave a machine with, let’s say 25 pound weights, then a guy shouldn’t be able to sit at that machine & use the same amount of weight. He should have to automatically increase those weights by at least 50%. After all, aren’t men supposed to be stronger than women?!
  • I’ve said this before, but big arms & a big gut don’t go together – Talk about irony, why not work out so that your body looks ripped all over? It makes no sense to be strong enough to pick me up but your stomach is so big I can’t even hug you all the way. Ha!
