Flirt lessons

1.  If you are ugly, don't flirt.  It won't work
2.  Do it with class, don't be a skank ho!
3.  As you listen, bite the side of your lower lip
4.  SMILE!
5.  Keep them guessing
6.  Hidden messages (for example: "Gosh, my car needs a check up and I hate going to the car dealership alone" or "I want to see Transformers but I don't want to go alone and sit there like a loser")
7.  Say, you are not ready to settle down, you just like having fun
8.  Touch his arm, pretend he has something on his hair and remove it
9.  Compliment him - even if he's UGLY ;D
10  Pretend he's funny

Why would I flirt with an ugly guy?  ???

And is #7 so you don't scare him away, even though it's probably true that you want to settle down and you're just playing games?

There's nothing wrong with a prenup except that it isn't very romantic.

What I was getting at earlier and now return to:

romance and the legal institution of marriage are two distinct, though often conflated, things.

I'm not really sure what point you're making.

There's nothing wrong with a prenup except that it isn't very romantic.  Even if you don't get one, you definitely, definitely want to protect yourself financially.  I used to work at a credit card company and I heard OVER and OVER and OVER again from dozens of people about how their ex-partner totally destroyed their credit by draining joint accounts and jacking up joint credit cards.  My friend who works in a bank told me about a guy she helped whose ex-partner took their entire savings out of a joint account.  You may not want to think that kind of thing could happen to you, and you might think that the person you're married to is wonderful and faithful and will be that way forever, but people change.  So if you don't want a prenup, limit the assets you keep in joint accounts.  It's not sweet and loving, but it's safer.  And more realistic.  For both parties, frankly.

The moral of this story is... what I said in my last post.

Well, if you asked... ;)

Seriously, I think this society sees marriage as a journey, with dating at the beginning and marriage as the destination.  The problem is that destinations are static -- but people and relationships are not.  Put the two together, and you're setting yourself up for a bitter divorce.

Even if you recognize this consciously, it's still very difficult -- if not impossible -- to alter this unconscious perception.  I'd like to think that I can get around this, but I know I'm probably just like everyone else in this society. :-\

could you dumb that down for us?

And to think that I spent all that time editing out the big words like "conceptual metaphor" :D

People think of marriage as something that doesn't change.  However, people change.  If you try to combine the two, you're setting yourself up for failure.
I don't agree.  My parents are celebrating their 47th wedding anniversary next month, and my older brother and his wife have been married 17 years. If you think they haven't adapted over the years you are mistaken. They haven't set themselves up for a bitter divorce. I hope you can get around this. :) Good luck and I hope you find a man to take this journey with.

uh...the fact that there are people in your life who manage to have successful marriages doesn't counter a general societal observation.


Twinface, let's tag team and kill her.  :)

is this thread prestigis?

It is now that you're here.  ;)

But only if you learn how to spell prestij.

you must be drinking the keystone premium. key light is prestijus.

You're all losing prestige just by talking about crappy beer... and cursing at wannabe beer snobs.

I'm not a wannabe. I AM a beer snob.

So am I, but I don't curse at the wannabes... I do make fun of the less prestigious people who come into my bar, though. 

I curse at wannabes AND the snobs though... does this salvage some shred of prestij?  Or am I screwed for life?

No, because you are a "normal" beer drinker... not prestijious in itself.  Sorry.
