HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY? (written by kids)
by Chris Hughes
A group of young kids were asked how to decide who to marry and here are the results which are pretty amusing.
(1) You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
- Alan, age 10
(2) No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with.
- Kristen, age 10
WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?
(1) Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.
- Camille, age 10
(2) No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married.
- Freddie, age 6 (very wise for his age)
HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
(1) You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
- Derrick, age 8
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?
(1) Both don’t want any more kids.
- Lori, age 8
WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?
(1) Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
- Lynnette, age 8 (isn’t she a treasure)
(2) On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that Usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
- Martin, age 10
WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?
(1) I’d run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.
-Craig, age 9
WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?
(1) When they’re rich.
- Pam, age 7
(2) The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn’t want to mess with that.
- Curt, age 7
(3) The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It’s the right thing to do.
- Howard, age 8
IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?
(1) I don’t know which is better, but I’ll tell you one thing. I’m never going to have sex with my wife. I don’t want to be all grossed out.
- Theodore, age 8
(2) It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
- Anita, age 9 (bless you child)
HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN’T GET MARRIED?
(1) There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn’t there?
- Kelvin, age 8
And the #1 Favorite is……..
HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
(1) Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck.
- Ricky, age 10

Hey there! So I’m back to being single once again and I have signed up for eHarmony.com this time. I’m quite excited and I hope to find some nice guys on there! Please stay tuned for this next adventure!
On a side note, I recently showed this blog to a friend and after reading it his reaction was: “Reading this makes me glad I never went out and met anyone online. I think I would be so nervous. Is this person for real? Are they going to look anything like the pic? Will they be anything like the profile? Will I end up stuffed in someones trunk?”
HAHA! I’m sure some of you may feel this way but my response was: “Its not like that at all, at least I don’t see it that way. Online dating almost feels like a very natural way of doing things to me. Times have changed ”
Wouldn’t you agree?
How to Flirt at a Party: The easiest way to create that unspoken connection with someone is through eye contact. (Yes, there’s merit to that whole “and then we locked eyes from across a crowded room” thing.) Try holding a person’s gaze for more than a second—most eye contact lasts just a fraction of a second. If he smiles or looks away and then back at you, it’s your move.
How to Flirt at a Happy Hour: Smiling is a bona fide way to draw someone in, but once there’s a bit of banter between you and your target, your facial expression should change frequently, according to a report by the U.K. think tank Social Issues Resource Center. Try raising your eyebrows in surprise, nodding in encouragement, making that cute, quizzical face when something doesn’t sound right. Just remember: You’re not playing to the back of the house—keep your expressions natural, not overly exaggerated.
How to Flirt Out Shopping: According to a 2012 study, women who flirted got a better deal when negotiating than friendly women did. While the friendly gals were seen as pushovers, study author Laura Kray, PhD, said that “flirtation conveys assertiveness and power, from someone who is also concerned about satisfying their own interests.” The next time you’re haggling over the price of something, here are three key strategies from the study: Smile, appraise (with a quick up-and-down look) and touch his arm. (Avoid the hand, which is waaay more personal.)
How to Flirt At Work: Depending on your office environment, different degrees of flirting will be okay, while others could ring sexual harassment alarm bells. When you’re negotiating in a work setting, the safest techniques to try may still be physical, but don’t involve touching. That means make eye contact, be mindful of your expressions and try mirroring the other person’s body language. If he’s leaning forward and resting an arm on the table, then go ahead and do the same.
How to Flirt at the Post Office: If you’ve been waiting in line anywhere—whether at the post office, airport or (gulp) the DMV—the person helping you is probably as disgruntled as you are. To change the mood, try using the person’s name. (Hopefully they’ll be wearing a name tag.) It will disarm them and create a sense of warmth that you can build on.
How to Flirt at the Gym: If a guy looks really into his sets (you’ll know by the grunts and groans he’s making), steer clear. It’s best to wait until someone has put down the weights or dismounted the treadmill before making a move. Like at a party, lead with eye contact to gauge his interest before going in.
How to Flirt with Another Woman: A subtle flirtation can exist between two women—and not in the bom chicka wah wah way. It’s the kind of exchange that usually takes place with someone new, a person you might hope to become friends with. To charm her—without scaring her away—ask her questions that will lead you both to some common ground.
How to Flirt with Your Significant Other: Flirting can help keep your relationship healthy, says Brandi Frisby, professor of communication at the University of Kentucky. According to her research (aptly titled “Without flirting it wouldn’t be a marriage”), couples who flirt with each other are more satisfied and committed in their relationships. So go ahead, give your husband that come-hither look every now and again.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY and HAPPY DATING!
As I continue to read email after email from people I know (and don’t know!) asking me what happened to me, will my stories continue and if I found someone I am forced to tell you all the truth. Well to be honest life just got in the way. After committing 2 nights a week for dates and about 10 hours of prepping and writing the blog I found it hard to keep up with it all. Did I reach 50 dates? No. I only got to #15 but then something magical happened and I found … him. It wasn’t even through Match.com. It was an old acquaintance I ran into again. To make a long story short we’ve been dating and I’d like to see where it goes so I had to cancel Match and stop the dates. I still have PLENTY of material to write and I am now the new writer over at BucksHappening.com for their “Single in the Suburbs” section. It’s been an exciting adventure to share with you publicly about all of my mishaps and to be honest I don’t want to stop here even though I am seeing someone. I still want to post guest writers, funny quotes and questions that will get your minds thinking.
Here’s a question I’ve been pondering:
How long should a guy wait to say the words “I love you”? I was in a relationship where I had to wait 1.5 years (too long!) and another relationship where it was 2 weeks (too short!). So I turn the question to you… how long should a guy wait?
