Not that I’d know, personally…

I know I’ve touched on it before, but here’s another article about dating at work. Of course, what I need are tips for dating someone from church, but no one’s written about that yet. I wonder why?
Well, while we ponder that mystery, here’s an article on what women want men to wear. Is it accurate, ladies? Should I be wearing rugged Levi’s with a white t-shirt? Or something that matches my eyes?
And, finally, for those readers who are married, how to argue with your wife, though, I would say avoid that if possible. Incidentally, these tips work pretty well for women arguing with their husbands, too.

Advice from your Uncle Jim:
"Everyone deserves to be happy, but not if that happiness is dependent on imprisoning or enslaving another human being."

  1. Seems to me that the best advice for dating *anywhere* is to start slowly! Hang out in a group, go for coffee or something simple. I always hated spending an entire evening alone with someone I hardly knew, so I would take the initiative and just spend an hour or so over coffee or lunch until I determined that I wanted to spend more time with the fellow. I always found “traditional dating” to be a drag.

    As for how a fellow dresses… I dig jeans and tee-shirts. No cologne. No covering up the gray. And I see a huge red flag when a guy won’t wear sandals! If he thinks “men don’t do that” then he likely has other anatomy-based biases that I want no part of!

    But that’s just me, and I readily acknowledge that I ain’t normal. In fact, perhaps now is the perfect time for me to post The List…

    4. “I’m pretty flexible–I don’t think a woman should be submissive on the first date.”
