One Apple In My Possession

one-apple-product

Clearly, I have been exaggerating for far too long. I do have an apple product in the house. Seriously…just one…I need to go grocery shopping.

Ahhhhhh, my tech gadgets. My tools. My toys.  What’s here???

IntimiDATER – Perfect Gift Idea

So you’ve just started dating someone and BOOM, the holiday season starts. What kind of gift should you give to send the right message?  Well, IntimiDATER has some thoughts on that.

Top 10 Random JD Thoughts

f8b5b7b5-b05c-4321-8eac-9cd60a1a85ecI’m so over social media being the soapbox for everyone’s superior political rantings that no one cares about unless they are already inclined to believe what is being said. Seriously. I don’t much care what most of you think about politics, but I’m sure interested in what you think about less controversial topics! 🙂

1. I have been accused of bigotry against Ohio State fans. Sure, I refused to date a Buckeye, just because she showed he…r “scarlet letter”. That doesn’t mean anything. I have a Buckeye friend. Seriously, I do.
2. That we have been conned into buying hand lotion and body lotion and face lotion is the biggest retail scam of all time. Yes, I do still buy all three. So??
3. If the weather is cold outside people tend to turn the heat up above what is considered “room temperature”. If the weather is hot outside, people tend to turn the AC temp down below “room temperature”. Why can’t a thermostat be set to the one optimal comfort temperature and everyone be absolutely ecstatic with it?
4. In movies, people do the strangest things: they have obvious breath moments (like waking up from being unconscious or rescued from a long time being lost) and they still get the deep kiss, without hesitation or a grimace. Morning breath is enough to turn me off…or her over. 😉 Intimidater!
5. Also, people in the movies never plug their phones in. They wake up in the morning and just grab it and go. Sure…TV people…sure.
6. Although, admittedly, my phone gets the best battery life. It can last for days. The secret tweak is to never use it or even touch it.
7. I am a firm believer that money can definitely NOT buy happiness…with a caveat. Money DOES create an environment conducive to the nurturing of happiness, so I’d rather make that journey loaded up with cash.
8. Honesty is the best policy…unless you’re dealing with dishonorable arse holes, in the real world.
9. Why is emotional cheating a thing? Isn’t that called having friends???
10. We say that things are worth dying for, but if you do, you’ll never know.

Dear Santa from IntimiDATER

Dear Santa,

My request this year is of a unique nature. I was going to ask you to have the elves in IT put together a subset of your master list, with the following:

I’m Most Thankful For YOU!

WP_20151127_391

I wanted to take a bit of time this weekend to point out that I’m thankful for…wait for it…YOU! Yeah, you. I’m not going to embarrass you by naming names because you know who you are. You’re reading this for a reason! By the way, thanks for reading and being so Facebook-supportive. It means a lot.

I know a lot of people, but you’re one of a kind. You know how you do the stuff that you do? Awesome. Then there are the things that you say. Amazing. When we get together, you’re literally present. You can be so cool…except when you’re not. Remember that one time, when you did that thing? Sooooo, typical you! I think my favorite thing about you is your self-esteem. Some people would assume that I’m talking about someone else, but you clearly know what’s up. I wish more people were like that.

Anyway, I just wanted to take a moment during this Thanksgiving weekend to say THANK YOU to you and only you, for being you! That’s it! Oh, and don’t rub this in everyone’s face. They’ll get jealous and stuff, which is why I don’t usually play favorites.

That Night I Went on 5 Dates

20151019_140557-01[1]Let’s face it, sometimes one date isn’t enough. If you really want to increases your chances in this dating game, you’ve got to maximize your opportunities. Yup, I recently had five dates in one night, and you should consider doing the same thing.

Hold on. This isn’t some crazy Tinder, swipe-fest story. Those are better left to my fictional alter-ego, The IntimiDATER. This is really a story about my philosophy of a great way to spend time with ONE person that you’re interested in. I’ve previously referred to the perfect date as a “walk” and this is really the same thing.
