What women want...

I was watching television the other night, and was amused as I watched a commercial advertising a new breakfast sandwich at Dunkin Donuts.

The commercial had a woman with a man. I couldn't tell if they were co-workers or dating. But the woman commented about how the sandwich was kind of hot (spicy), but not too hot and kind of referenced that same comparison to the guy.

I'm convinced that's what MOST women really want in their lives. They want a guy that's good looking, with a hot quality here and there. But not too hot that other women fall at his feet, and give them something to worry about when he's not around.

You know, a guy that's kinda HOT, but not too hot. LOL.


Doesn't it seem like your significant other is cooler, more understanding, creative and willing to do more of the things you like to do early in a relationship, or simply during that get-to-know-you period? Seriously.

When that person gets comfortable then the out of the blue questions, accusations and expanded curiosity begins... along with a number of other investigative tactics.

Why not simply keep everything going in the same direction things were seemingly progressing from the start? Why not always communicate freely, as friends do? When a person feels like he or she can't express something due to insecurity of a significant other is when bigger issues begin.

Communication is very key. We all know that. Simply remember to always keep it real with the people you want in your life, whether it be friends or significant others. Don't fake or front for anyone. Because the moment the act comes to end is when true attitudes, personalities and behaviors are exposed.

Like the voice in those FUNNY Time Warner commercials: "DON'T BE EXPOSED. Keep it real."

Couple thoughts on verdict... latest blog

Most of us have been consumed with the Zimmerman trial, verdict and opinions on everything related. The mass media has done a great job of making sure that was number one on our plates.

I'm definitely taken back a little after the not guilty verdict. Definitely.

I'm really sick of people trying to defend that verdict, and take the attention away from the obvious racial tone of this whole trial. I am not saying it's an issue to cause a riot. But this is definitely some bullshhhh. Really.

I don't want to hear about how O.J. Simpson got off, or how Michael Jackson was acquitted after being accused of having questionable communication with underage kids. Last time I checked, Zimmerman wasn't a former Heisman trophy winner or Grammy nominated artist.  Just some half-white guy in Florida. Nothing more, or nothing less. Not saying the situation would be justified if he were. Just noting the obvious difference with those cases. From what I can tell, a lot of REGULAR citizens have lost their case when trying to use the STAND YOUR GROUND law as their defense.

It's as simple as this: If it were ME on trial for chasing a black, white, hispanic or asian kid down a neighborhood street; and we got into a scuffle when I finally caught the kid... whether I was threatened or not, I am going to jail or being proven guilty of something if I ended up KILLING the kid. Hell, I would be praying for justice if someone broke into my house to rob me, and I had to kill them... hoping the jury believed I truly did the act to protect myself.

I would hate to be a law student, trying to debate all the cases that went the OTHER WAY when taken to trial. How are students going to justify this verdict when there are countless cases of the person on trial for murder going to jail or being proven guilty of SOMETHING even if they were dealing with this STAND YOUR GROUND LAW?
