pt. 1 - a client just did something that has me seeing red. trying to breathe and get over it as quickly as possible.
pt. 2 - why do all “The Bachelorette”s insist on wearing figure skating reject dresses. it’s like their thought process is: the more sequins, the shorter, the tighter (all at once), the better. why do you want to perpetually look like you’re leaving on the next flight to Vegas? less is more sometimes even on el television.
richmondrelocation said: I just read your post about your okcupid date. he does sound weird. I know that you are a grown, smart woman and can take care of yourself. But please do not go to anymore guy's apartments on the first date that you meet online. That is really unsafe. This guy turned out to be a harmless weirdo, but you just never know. He could have refused to drive you home or worse.
So my question about this (not indieless specfically, but more about dating in general):
When do you know to trust someone that you have no mutual friends with? Like how do you know that just because you had three, five, ten dates with him, he’s decent? He could be just waiting for you to trust him and then strike. I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer here and I’m not trying to be facetious, I am just curious to what you all think.
I am passionate about this topic because I think as women, it is an unfortunate truth that we are more vulnerable so because of this we have a responsibility to treat our personal safety as priority numero uno. There’s no right or wrong answer as far as putting a date number on when you will be able to trust someone. But I think the very first meeting should never take place behind closed doors - of a car, of their/your home, etc. At least give yourself time to even make a first impression and let your gut instinct kick in before being completely alone with them.
So far today:
*Woke up feeling much better. Caught a nasty cold/sore throat situation in LA (thanks, fresh ocean air…or something) so am grateful I’ve nipped it for the most part.
*Came in to happy faces at work and IMs from coworkers saying they were glad to have me back. Warm fuzzies up the wazoo.
*Found out one of my clients won a giveaway we were doing. He is the nicest guy ever and is now the recipient of a $6200 (yep) custom sport coat. So excited for him.
*Received some great customer service from Southwest in response to our 6-hour delay heading out to LA on Saturday. We get free vouchers to use on our next flight.
Now I am heading out to get a bento box for lunch and really couldn’t be happier about it.
someone I know had a baby a little over one week ago and has already posted 72 (yes, I counted) pictures of the baby on Instagram
