The other thing I noticed is that we spend too much time going out on dates...I think everybody should wear a pin that says how awesome they are. For example if you are awesome, your pin would be a 10 (out of 10 points). However, if you are having a bad day, maybe you wear your 4 pin that day. Thus, on that day, everybody knows not to bother you. If you need a little more confidence on that day, maybe you could bump yourself up to a 5. I of course, would be an 10, of course. And you are a 10, we would be a perfect match!
I am originally from Minnesota and have lived in a couple different states. New York is great, where else can you go hiking and skiing, and go to the beach all in the same area. And I am not even mentioning the world class entertainment, food, cultural events etc...Other than living NY, my most favorite state is Louisiana. The gumbo, crawfish etouffee, seafood, and oysters are out of this world...I will definitely take you there someday! If I go outside of the states, Spain was great...my next trip is New Zealand and then Italy/Croatia.
I live by the philosophy, "work smart, live well"...family is important to me.
