You might have been born in the wrong era… or lived in a previous era in another life… but I don’t think you’d be able to deal with the societal norms of that day. You’d have probably had to write under LARRY WARRELL! ;)

Nice Topic.

on December 16, 2009 at 7:30 pmSuzanne @ aherr – remember the thrill of that teenage flirting! Oh yes, the playfulness mixed with anticipation and hopefulness was key. There was a vulnerability to it that is harder to have as an adult. I have worked to redeveloped that kind of flirtation with my long-term love. Yes, he does occasionally look at my cleavage and tell me I am smoking hot…(after all, he is a dude)…however, the romance comes back when we flirt. Sometimes it can be a little corny, but it’s more tender.

on December 18, 2009 at 7:52 pmNick I’m probably being chauvinistic when I say this, but it seems to me that women are the sexual gatekeepers in most relationships–that is, men make advances, and it falls to you to determine how far you’re going to allow them to go (in terms of emotional intimacy, physicality, etc.). It seems to me, then, that you have the power to lead the way here. Behave with a certain level of class and distinction, and don’t give the time of day to men who fail to behave appropriately. If women as a whole demand more from men, then men will learn to go the extra mile or go home.

People are fundamentally lazy–if all a guy has to do to get you into bed is buy you shots and grind on you, then don’t expect him to climb mountains, or fight dragons, or banter wittily. Make him work for it, though, and you might be surprised what even a ‘typical guy’ is capable of.

Just my two cents–straighten me out if you think I’m grossly out on line.
