    Heads up... according to my TV's program guide, "The Big Bang Theory" is repeating "The Friendship Algorithm" tonight. That's the one where Sheldon comes up with a flowchart to guide him through cultivating a prospective colleague, and gets stuck in... oh well, see it for yourself if you haven't already! :biggrin:

    A person can learn everything they need to know about relationships from Disney movies: Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Ariel, ...... they tell you all you need to know.

    To bad real life can't end like fairy tales: ..... ever after

    I would give better advice than Cyrus!

    First example:

    My response:

    If this is the first time you are going to their place and it is not clean I think that is an issue. If I know a woman is coming to my house, I make sure to have it clean at least the first time she comes over. However, if she is just coming over for sex I don't worry about how clean the entire house is and only clean my bedroom.

    Could we still have an Ask Cyrus thread on Valentine's Day? (Pretty please, Cyrus?)

    Oooh yes, but perhaps it should start before Valentines Day so that people can get romance saving tips before the "Big Day".

    Nice. I remember when I lived at home my mom would always ask "why there wasn't anywhere to sit in your room except on the bed?


    Thanks

    I should include a disclaimer. All of my dating advice has been carefully researched by trolling divorce support forums on the internet. Not all of my suggestions are guaranteed to provide long term results.


    Seeing as how it's nearly Valentine's Day, I think a Valentine's Day gift suggestion is in order. A used vacuum cleaner makes a good gift. Three nearly new tires also make a nice gift - especially if you're dating three women at the same time!

    If interested, you can obtain the above for no more than shipping costs.
