  1. What is the fastest you've driven?

    Hmmm, I went about 95-100 a few years ago on a trip down to Florida. It was on the I95. It's hard to realize how fast you're going when 80 is the middle speed on your car (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). But the scariest by far was when I was taking that loop around Washington DC and there were huge trucks on either side of me (all going around 85) so I had to go 85. Terrifying, simply terrifying.
  2. Would You Rather...?

    Extra toe, I could remove it. And even if I couldn't, extra toe! More balance. Do you find it easier to accept others faults or accept your own?
  3. Love this phrase, my friends and I use it a lot... It conveys the mood so perfectly.
  4. Everyone's posts here are really amazing and well thought out. I just wanted to add some little anecdote I saw on TV the other day. I was watching HG TV (the home and garden channel) and there was a House Hunters on and this newly married couple were looking for a home. They met over the internet I believe, she was from France, he lived in Hawaii, and they made it work. So it's possible, not an easy situation though. But possible.
  5. I used to go to the comic book convention in NY with some of my friends from college. I really liked going to the panel discussions the most. They have some really entertaining guest speakers many times.
  6. My dream for my future is to be 80 or so years old and be sitting next to my husband in our home, holding hands, and sharing stories of our life together and reminiscing on all the wonderful happy times we had. Knowing that our children are happy and successful and helping the world, even in small ways. Feeling the same love and compassion for him as I felt when I first met him, only stronger, and knowing that he still feels the same for me. Knowing that we focused on the good things and let the trivial problems not affect our lives or love for each other. And then maybe making him a sandwich and planning our next vacation. It's not filled with a ton of details, because I don't know exactly what will happen and I try to stay open about the course of my life. But after I've lived another 50 or so years, I would like to look back with my husband (if I am so blessed) and smile.
  7. I really want to have kids. But again if life doesn't work out that way and I find someone who can't have children for whatever reason, I would like to maybe adopt once we've been married 10 years or so.
  8. What do you have in your big a** purses?

    I don't carry a big purse. I try to carry as little as possible. I had an odd aversion to purses until I was about 20... Now I have my phone, wallet, subway ticket, loose change, maybe some lip balm, Passport (I need it for work). And uhhh... I think that's it. Random things I pick up throughout the day that I can't throw out. Sometimes I carry a second bag if I know I will be gone all day. Then I add an extra jacket, couple of bottles of water, maybe an umbrella if it is going to rain. And my notebook.
  9. ok question, "GRAPHIC"

    Well said. I would only add that.... I would ask him to get a blood test to put my mind at rest for any deadly diseases. Just in case.
  10. Hmm, tough question. I think I would pick muscular arms. Because I really like hugs and cuddling and it would feel like a strong wall of protection around me . Plus I'd most likely see and hold onto his arms a lot more often.
  11. The Friend Zone!!

    Friend zoning is a really bad term. Because it implies that there is something wrong with developing a friendship first. I don't have a ton of guy friends, and the ones I do are either in relationships or married, so it is abundantly clear that we are "just friends." The guys I get close to are the ones I see that there could be a potential future in. Or in the back of my mind, I think I should learn more about this person and spend time with them, etc. Again because the potential is there. Maybe that's why I have very few male friends (acquaintances sure, but friends no). Maybe there are girls who like to get the benefits of a man who will be devoted to her and take care of her and they use them for that, and that is very sad. And completely wrong on the part of the girl. That is not okay. And for any guy that had this happen and is sure she was never interested (because she told you that outright) even at some point in time, then that's messed up. But anyway, I think a lot of guys now immediately assume friend zone (or that's what it seems like from all the hype of the term). Don't write off a girl because she isn't flirty or sending clear signals. Us girls aren't always good at that either. Maybe she has no idea how to proceed. It happens.
  12. Following the slight tangent here... height in a man doesn't really make a difference to me. Ideally they would be a little bit taller than me. If he was too tall I would feel like I was always looking up and well... I'm 5'4" so he couldn't really be all that much shorter than me. I like the eye to eye concept. Finding someone who is around your general height. But I rarely think about height. Except when you see someone who is a giant over 6'4" and I'd be like wow, that person is really tall. Or if someone is shorter than 4'10" (guy or girl) and I would think wow that person is rather short. But anywhere between 5'5" and 5'10" would be ideal for me personally.
  13. You just brought up something I have thought about a lot in the past. The idea of an emotional connection that a future husband/boyfriend may have that I might feel jealous about or worry about, etc. A lot of posts talk about the retroactive jealousy concept for someone who has had sex with someone before, but never mentions that in regards to the emotional connection. Maybe I find the emotional side of a husband/boyfriend's past so important because I'm a girl (are we wired differently like that)? I actually consider that more or equally important to his physical past. Or maybe I'm the only one who feels that way. I don't know. But between a man who had sex with someone else before but never fell in love until he met me, and was happy to wait with me...., and a man who fell head over heals for some girl, who he considered the love of his life, and still thought about; To be honest, the latter would be much more in my mind. I would feel like I always had to share his heart. At the end of the day, I would never let something like that stop me from choosing someone. And of course it's up to the individual person whether they are ready to "move on" so to speak and leave all those past ties behind. My rational self would keep any insecurities like that at bay for the greater good of our future, but I'm just curious if anyone else has ever thought about this? Or felt anything similar.
  14. I don't think I would want to know. I mean, if it was within the next year or two, I'd want to know, but imagine if it was in 20 years? Or 50 years? I don't think I'd want to know that. I'd like to keep hoping that it will be sooner rather than later. I don't mind a bit of "ignorance is bliss" with things like this. Also, imagine if you knew the moment you met someone that they were your soul mate, that would take away the mystery of it all when you are getting to know someone. I do see the advantages though, most definitely. And it's a tough choice, I wasn't sure at first. But I think I'll go with not knowing. In regards to the red string theory. My friend did her senior thesis about that, in the form of a children's book. I was very much intrigued by it. And I hope it is true. The idea of being connected to different souls, souls you are meant to meet that you will always have a special bond with no matter how tangled and long the thread is, is a very comforting thought. Makes one feel connected to the world in a special way.
  15. I really like the way you worded this. I definitely agree and believe this is what happens with a marriage, or at least this is what we all strive for.
