they all love me...

It has become a global epidemic. How many of you girls have come across men that you have dated but have come to realize that it is not the relationship that is important but the number of women they can capture the interest of. They want quantity not quality. I should write a book about this and call it the "They ALL Love My Syndrome." Actually, that title is a bit boring, maybe you can help me come up with a better name.

And you would think online or offline dating services would help this problem... in actuality I think it makes it worse. Now men do not have to go to a bar and compete in the flesh to grab the attention of a woman. They can share winks with millions of women every minute! And since women are so sick and tired of the same ol' pickup line, they are flocking to web to find their prince charming. The more the merrier... well I say the more the less appealing. Oh - and if you men are using Match.com or E-harmony, or any other service, please choose your winks wisely. Do you realize how many women have multiple yet opposite profiles and you wink at all of them? It then becomes even MORE obvious to us that you are not interested in looking for someone but for everyone.

In summary, women do not care nor want to hear about all the women you have dated in the past! The more that you have does not make you more appealing! And, to top it off, if you do not focus on what is in front of you now, she (and I included) will not be there in the future. Hell, we won't be there 5 minutes from now!

the beginning or the end...

As I join the era of bloggers I wonder if this is a beginning or an end...

I know it is a beginning to becoming yet more integrated into the big WWW, however, it could be an end to that extra 15-30 minutes I yearn for. Oh well, as I learned this past weekend at a search engine seminar (STOMP the Search Engines), this skill will only further enhance my ability to become a overly successful Internet Marketer. YIPPEE!

So, some interesting things I learned this weekend that do not relate to search engines (isn't that information for another blog???)...

ATL is not only the airport code for Atlanta, but it is how ALL Hotlantians refer to the place they are from! The first time I came across this was in Miami when 2 dorkish type dudes approached 2 of my A-list girlfriends. As we are in our 30s... we do not judge quickly. But, when reference was made that they were from the "ATL"... it was the end of their chances! And how should we respond? We are from the DCA, sometimes IAD, preferably not the BWI in the MIA??? Yea, I knew you would agree with the ridiculousness of it :). But, sad to say, my sister, who has lived in the ATL for the last couple years confirmed that it was a common association and everyone refers to themselves as being from ATL. I am at a loss of words.
