Jessica Simpson is still hot

Do we really have to hear that Jessica Simpson is getting fat? No. And quite honestly, it’s getting a little ridiculous hearing

Jessica Simpson still looks better then most people her age.

Jessica Simpson still looks better then most people her age.

that she is. She may not be the smaller version of herself that we all may be used to but she still looks damn good. In fact, she looks better in the picture to the right then Lindsay Lohan does now. Thats right. The smaller, blonder, not as hot Lindsay Lohan. I think everyone needs to clam down with this obsession we have about talking about how much weight celebrities are gaining. Maybe people, like Lindsay, need to add a few more pounds to look better. Remember when she had red hair and was hot? Remember when we talked about her because she was in movies and not a lesbian? Hopefully we won’t have to hear about Simpson’s weight loss problem if she loses a few pounds. Maybe people shouldn’t worry about her so much. She’s not like shes a drug addict or a horrible mother. I think she can be left alone now.

Where Do You Get Off?

Yahoo.com is a great place to find out random happenings and what’s going on in the world, but fashion? Perhaps they should stick with news . . .or at least hire someone that knows what looks good.

The 2009 SAG awards were held on Sunday night and, of course, lots of Hollywood’s top ladies were their for the event.¬† They all looked stunning but of course, someone has to swoop in and give negative feedback on how “bad” they looked. What average Joe wouldn’t love to walk down the red carpet with any of these women?

What is wrong with Jane Krakowski? Julie Benz? Jenna Fischer? Really Yahoo? Jenna Fischer looks bad? I think I speak for a lot of people when I say No, she does not.

And it’s not just Yahoo that does the pointless stories. Do we really need hundreds of magazines telling us who looks good and who doesn’t? I can’t get a story anymore with who won and how happy they are and possibly what new works they are planning on doing?

I want to see the clothes of the people that write these stories. I’m sure your not making everyone’s top list either.

Farewell for Now

I had a lot of fun doing this blog for class but for now my blog posts will most likely slow down a bit. I will leave this site up for people to view and comment and if i get a lot of comments perhaps ill post sooner rather then later. But for now i will take a break with the site and probably start up again some time next month. I hope everyone had fun reading this as much as i had fun posting. Hopefully when i start back up ill have a lot new material to comment on and things will continue to move jut as smooth.

Live Blog Part II: Divorced

6:31 – Me and my date are the first of two couples to arrive at Nick”s house.

6:42 РThe other couple, Debbie and Karl, arrive with their friend, Shannon, who will be meeting Nick for the first time. The two greet each other with a handshake.

6:47 – Nick apologizes for dinner being a few minutes late. Shannon makes a comment about loving a man who can cook.

6:54 – We sit down for dinner. Shannon explains how she knows Debbie and Karl, as does Nick. Nick says he is surprised he has not met her before and he is sorry for that.

6:58 – Nick says he hopes everyone’s food came out well. And it did.

7:01 – Shannon asks how Nick got into his line of work and if he likes it.

7:16 – Nick brings up the topic of kids. Shannon has 2 just like Nick.

7:25 – We get into the state of the economy and how it is effecting everyone during the holidays.

7:33 – Dinner has been done for several minutes but Nick finally cleans the table and ask about dessert. He brings out chocolate cake.Yum.

7:36 – Shannon is still taken by Nick’s cooking skills again.

7:51 – We finish dessert and move into the living room and play several board games. Each couple is a team. Shannon and Nick bond and work very well together.

8: 32 – Games come to an end. Shannon must leave because her babysitter can only stay until 9.

8:36 – Shannon and Nick say goodbye and expect to see each other again getting each others. E-mail and number.

I think even without people being there, everyone can see which couple clicked and which didn’t. It was very fun, and at times akward, to watch both couples in action. I feel by being there it didn’t change how either couple acted at all, in fact it helped pick up conversations from time to time. Since Nick is older then Adam, he felt more comfortable having people in his house and entertaining others rather then Adam would have and it seemed to work out for him. All four singles brought something to the conversation and was different in their own way, but how they acted and responded definatley showed their age. I think it just shows that no matter how old or young someone is, there are always problems and things to loook forward to. Its not the age, its the individual.

Live Blog Part I: College

7:45 – Me and my date, Sky, arrive with her friend Jeanie at the resturaunt.

7:51 – Adam arrives. We all say hello.

7:57 – We continue to wait to be seated. All four of us talk about the end of the semester.

8:08 – We are seated. Adam and Jeanie sit on one side of the booth.

8:11 – I figure out what I want while Adam and Jeanie find out what each other likes in terms of food.

8:16 – Adam reveals he is very into football and loves being out as much as he can. Jeanie isn’t a big sports girl but does enjoy going out from time to time.

8:20 – Jeanie goes out for a smoke. Adam doesn’t look very pleased.

8:21 – Comments to me that he is really turned off by her smoking especially since he is an athlete.

8:23 – Jeanie returns and Adam asks when she stared smoking.

8:27 – Adam and Jeanie continue to talk more about likes and dislikes jumping from topic to topic.

8:36 – Food arrives.(finally)

8:38 – The two get into what they want to do after school. Neither goes about asking the other for more detail on their future careers.

8:45 – They continue to talk, more about themselves rather then asking about the other. They seem to have very little in common and not very interested in each other.

8:54 – Adam asks Jeanie what she is doing over break and she responds with “Hanging out with close friends and seeing family.”

8:56 – Both finish up eating and begin taking out money for the bill.

9:01 – Waiter brings the bill and both put in their share. Adam doesn’t offer to pay for her and Jeanie says she will meet us outside while she has a smoke. Adam doesn’t look happy.

9:05 – We gather outside to say goodbye. Both say they had a good time and thank us for introducing them. Neither gets the other’s number and go off on their own.

Upcoming: Play by Play of a Date

In the next few days, you will be able to see what goes on during a date of two people in college and of two people who are jumping back into the dating world. The college students, both 20, are meeting through a mutual friend and have only talked through texts and over the phone. The two people who are getting back into dating are both divorced. The man is 39 and the woman 37.

There may be a big age difference and generation gap between the two couples, but thats the point. We will see the similarites and differences in how both men and women will approach the date and how they may react to the other person. These two couples are not meeting each other and are not having their dates on the same night. I will go along with one or two other people, not as a third wheel so they don’t feel akward and also feel more relaxed not being alone with a new person for the first time. My goal is to just take note in their expressions, interactions, and thoughts during the night. It will certainly be interesting to see how both the younger couple and older couple are the same and how the generation gap plays a big part in how they act and how their conversation goes.

Great relationship, better future

A lot of people try so hard to make a relationship work but the problem is, is if you need to try THAT hard, perhaps it just isn’t meant to be. Other just know when they are happy together and if it will work. In a time when Internet dating is becoming more popular and people seem to get married younger and younger, one couple found that being themselves and not rushing into anything worked for their advantage.

Jackie and Steve are a young 30’s couple who have been married for about 3 years. The have a one year old baby and plan on having another one sometime in the next year or so.

Anthony: So how did everything work for your guys that you were able to take your relationship this far?

Steve: Well, we met in college through friends and hit it off really well together. We both had a lot of work between us but when we had time, we spent it together and never tried to make the other rush to hang out because it was such an emergency. We were both understanding of the others school and work issues.

Jackie: And we both knew that school doesn’t last forever. If we wanted to be with each other there was always something after and we could deal with not seeing each other for a few days at a time.

Anthony: So after school was over and you had more time for each other, how did things go?

Jackie: They went really well. Things picked up even more. We had more dates together and more time to be alone and not worry so much about what was due in class next week and we could really just focus on us and what our lives were becoming. And the important thing was, we never rushed anything. We never said we HAVE to move in together or we HAVE to get married.

Steve: I didn’t want to be that couple that got married because we were in love and couldn’t wait. As great as starting a family is and everything, you have to really ask yourself “Ok, if we get married then what?” Because i see kids getting married before they’re out of college and just go insane. They don’t understand the problems they cause down the road.

Anthony: What kind of problems do you mean?

Steve: The number one thing is money problems. If you truly love someone as much as i love Jack, then a piece of paper saying your married is just a bonus down the road. I don’t think a lot of these kids think that far ahead. And its very weird of me saying “those kids” when I was one of them not too long ago. (laughs) As great as it is to start a family and want to have a relationship that last forever, rushing things could put that in jeopardy.

Anthony: If you can say one thing to all those young kids and adults who are beginning to get serious with each other, what would it be?

Jackie:Don’t be jealous or over protective. Especially in school I know people can feel like others are trying to take you girlfriend of boyfriend but trust them enough that they can go out with friends and still come back to you at night. If they cant do that then the hell with them. (laughs)

Steve: That and never rush. Again, if i asked Jack to marry me earlier then when i had, we might not have things so easy now or as strong of a relationship.

Anthony: Thank you very much for your time and I wish you best best with your family.

Dress to Impress

First impressions are always important from the business world to dating. And one of the things that the person you are meeting for the first time notices, are the clothes you are wearing and how you are presenting yourself. Women have the ability to wear next to nothing and grab the attention of every man in the room and those that she passes on the streets. But as great of a way as that is to get a guy to start talking to you and show him how good you look, he will instantly start thinking of what kind of girl you really are.

A lot of men who met girls at bars and clubs usually see a majority of women with short tight skirts and low cut tops. Although there’s nothing to complain about from a guys point of view, women can’t get angry when men assume that they are asking for attention by how they are dressing. Is it a fair assumption? No. Does it happen a lot? All the time. If you just like the attention continue to wear the next to nothing outfits, but be prepared to get the guys who will assume you are easy.

The best thing you can wear out or just on a first date, are a pair of nice jeans and any kind of top which won’t reveal to much. Girls, if you are good looking, it really won’t matter too much of what you are wearing. Looking like you didn’t just walk off the runway will actually make you more approachable and more likely men will want to talk to you because you look good and not because you look like your easy. Because that will not lead to a long term relationship at all.

Online Dating

A lot of people are turning to on-line dating services such as eHarmony, Match.com, and Chemistry.com to find people they have things in common with. Although it gives you an easier way to find someone in the area you may have not met otherwise, sites like these don’t ever truly know the person they are matching you up with before hand.

It seems people have gotten more lazy and would rather have a search engine pair them up with someone rather then going out and meeting people for themselves. When you meet someone, you can see who they are by what they dress, how the act, even how they talk, with an on-line dating profile, you get only what they decided to put on the website. When person’s profile gives their hobbies and what they like, who’s to say they didn’t make something they think some one ELSE would like to hear. If you need to think about what someone would like to hear from reading your profile, you have already lied to tons of people about who you are.

And probably the worst thing of all, many of these sites require you to pay to put your name and profile out to potential dates. A date isn’t always guaranteed. So why even pay? Do yourself a favor and save yourself some money and wasted energy and just get out in the real world and look for yourself. If you can’t be social to get a date, how long do you think you can make a relationship last?
