She Said Yes

She Said yes - Building a Better DaveToday I talk about me popping the question last week to “The Nurse” and she made me very happy by saying yes.  Today I talk about the absolute guys view to engagement ring shopping. There is a strange aerobic dance that women do when they put on a ring.

She loves choices. I mean she LOOOOOVVVES choices, and I love that she loves choices. I am a very lucky man. We will be tying the knot on June 20, 2008.

Yes I got on one knee. It was nothing too fancy (I had fancier ideas, but if I didn't give her this ring soon, I was going to be in deep trouble).

Rubber Band Man

Rubber band ManSo my girlfriend and I listened to the book “Men are from Mars,
women are from Venus
in the car ride to Dayton Ohio where I
was talking to the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop.

I learned some new stuff as did my girlfriend.

Men are like rubber bands. They have an intimacy cycle, where they
get close, and then snap away. When they stretch as far as they can they
will then snap back. If a women tries to stop them from “stretching” it causes problems.

Women are like waves. They go up and down. If you try to stop the natural cycle of women.
If you try to stop this cycle, it causes issues as well.

So you can see where if a women is “crashing” and a man is “Stretched out” it could cause a
problem if both parties don't understand that they are just being male/female.

I found it interested and it has given “The nurse” and myself some valuable insights.

Dave Jackson - What IfDave takes some time to realize how much time we can waste asking “What if?” Don't get lost in “What-ifville.” He also talks about some of the comforting words of wisdom his father shared with him growing up.

Music: “What if World” Steve McDaniel from the Podsafe Music Network
