Especially if she feels that she's finally found in you someone who values her for HER (her personality, her character, her brain) rather than her beauty.

Beautiful women (most of them, anyway) know they are beautiful, and unless they are insecure, they get tired of hearing it, because it's always the first thing that people notice about them and comment on. Complement her on other things. Pay attention to what types of compliments really make her light up, and do more of those. Show her you value her for more than just her looks.
I only emphasised it bc she was upset that I told her she looked great when wearing makeup!

In other words I was kissing her ass over the misunderstanding that I liked her only with makeup, yet after 6 months it was the first time I've seen her with makeup and it was a photo!

Here's the secret: always tell a woman she looks better without makeup. Granted, she may never wear makeup again...

I think my personality changes when I wear makeup. Like I'm putting on a show. I like me better without it and self-confidence = true beauty.

Re: The Singles of TAM 2.0

Woohoo! A new 'coolest people of TAM' thread! Are we still discussing hats? I'm no longer single and have chosen my hat, but I may drop in from time to time. ;-)

Choosing to kick ass every day in a positive way.

I think we stopped using the "hat" derivative, but yes! I'm not really single anymore, either, but I'm still obviously here!

Re: The Singles of TAM 2.0

Well, I'm single and I'm wearing a dunce hat.

Don't let people become a priority in your life when you're just an option in theirs.

On the old thread, when a poster was dating someone, they would chose a notable characteristic and combine it with "hat" to give the person a moniker we would use on the thread. So, if I was dating a fireman, I might call him "Fireman-hat." Eventually, the -hat part of the naming convention fell out of use, and we just started making up names. So I call my guy Real Estate (he works in real estate), and I previously dated Fireman and J-Dawg, among others; @bklyn309 is/was dating Older Man, or OM for short, who is, well significantly older than bklyn (any update on that, bklyn?), and before that someone nicknamed Chemistry Man; @ne9907 dated a guy nicknamed Navy back in the day; an old poster who doesn't come around anymore was dating a woman he nicknamed Bleacher because she was a little OCD when it came to cleaning (she liked to bleach everything, but she sounded like a great gal otherwise); there was another poster (also long gone, sadly) who dated a woman he dubbed Guitar Girl because she would play her guitar at open mic nights and stuff (you guys remember @Healer? I miss his posts).

Re: The Singles of TAM 2.0

damn... I had forgotten about navy guy. All the guys I have dated are douches..... I have dated A LOT of men... perhaps "dated" is an exaggeration, I have fvcked a lot of men is more realistic.

I am feeling all out of sorts, work is stressful, my personal life is stressful, I am sad and overworked and stressed out and have nobody to blame but me.... ugh...

I say Left, but mean Purple

Re: The Singles of TAM 2.0

Or it could be that all men are douche canoes.

(Except the ones participating in this thread)

Don't feel about all the dudes you fvcked. Edison said it best, when asked about the 1000 times he failed to invent the light bulb, he said the light bulb was just a process that took a 1000 steps (paraphrasing). Some day, some where, some dude (and your self) are going to benefit from the experience of it all. Enjoy the ride (pun intended) and don't be too hard on yourself! Better to have lived and learned, than be limited by some religious dogma that says you shall not...

Yeah and I'll be jealous for the rest of my life... no chance! So I shall speak the truth

I did tell her I didn't want her to wear makeup all the time except for special occasions, I'd rather someone who isn't afraid to step out of the door everyday. Besides she's not the type of woman who needs it. I'm just jealous that she put in all that effort for others but hasn't done it for me.

Another example, ex-wife had anal sex before. I don't like anal sex, never even tried it once, but I would have been very jealous if she had it with another guy and never offered it to me. Ex-wife offered it, which I promptly replied NO THANKS! But it was the gesture that counts.
