Women are EXPENSIVE. Geez!

I got off work LATE last night for a Friday night (around 2130 hrs). I picked up my girlfriend and told her that I would take her out to eat anywhere she wanted because I know she ALWAYS choses IHOP. We went to IHOP for lunch yesterday and Perkins for breakfast this morning which is reasonable. Last night she said, "I have one special request." I figured she'd want a big ol' hug or something mushy like that. Nope. She wanted to go to Red Lobster. She picked the most expensive appetizer on the menu and then that shrimp platter! I figured I may as well go for the gusto so I got the broiled seafood platter and a Miller Lite to wash it all down. If you're gonna do it you may as well go all the way so we ATE! It had been a long time since I had seafood and that flounder stuffed with deviled crab meat was to die for!

Anyways. To make a long story short, it was worth every penny because I got to spend the next 2 hours snugglin' up to a really good movie.

To the seasoned "pros".....

Do women ALWAYS have you wrapped around their little finger or does it ever change? One of my married friend told me that it's a sign that she's "the right one" if that's the case.

    When you get married it gets WORSE![}:)][;)] Never even see my pay check, and have to ask if I can use the debit card. Nine monthes ago my wife decided we need a bigger house. Would have preferred to take her to Red Lobster.[:D][:(!]

    It changes, and then it don't in some ways, sure a few years from now you'll be farting, and pulling the cover over her head, but she will still have you wrapped around her finger, because she has "the power of the clam"

    They will always have you around their finger, just remember that you are always wrong, and she is always right, and you will get along just fine. [:D]

    Ids,

    What what you've posted about this lady, it sounds to me like you found a "keeper". I know you're being transferred and all that but love will find a way, no matter where you are. If you both feel the same about each other, go for it! Man (nor woman) was meant to live alone.

    Best of luck to you both !

    I, Robot with Wil Smith. Of course she got all excited when they showed him nekked but I got swatted when they showed the female naked through the steamy shower stall door.

    There are two kinds of women that can be in your life:

    1. Those that have you wrapped around their finger
    2. Those that you have wrapped around your finger

    The two categories are mutually exclusive, and you can never move from #1 to #2 (but you can move from #2 to #1, and every woman's goal is to do just that).

    I don't give my wife any money unless she explains in detail what she is buying and why. She then must produce a receipt.

    I do it this because I love her.

    it only gets more expensive. the ring is the appetizer and the mortgage, car payment, and clothes are the main course.[;)]

    Great. She threw a little jewelry catalog at me last night with different stuff circled. Birthday coming up. [B)] She's a sweetheart and she knows what she's going to get for her birthday. She's moving to Georgia later this month so it will be a nice gift to give her when we say "goodbye".

    Big mistake. Big big big mistake. You have to keep her wanting more when she leaves, and giving in to her bratty "these are the rings I like, sweety" antics when she leaves just tells her "Okay, I have this one conquered and can have him anytime I want, let's see what the boys are like in Georgia."

    Where in Georgia is she moving? You may be in for ALOT of trouble. If she finds a true southern boy.... man oh man... I found one.

    I get coffee in bed every morning, my shower is started for me, he cooks, cleans, does laundry, knows better than to go hunting without me and knows that the best answer is "yes honey"

    Don't get in a rush Jeremy, if she is the right one she will be around until you are very, very sure.

    By the way, Red Lobster is not an expensive resturant.
