Beginning of a BEAUTIFUL thing


I am starting a new advice section of my blog. It's a spin on a great TLC show "What Not To Wear". (Which BTW is an awesome show and I really want to be on it. Feel free to nominate me...I promise I won't get offended). I mean, really, the show is all about taking YOU when you are not looking your best and taking your shape, size, coloring, likes and dislikes into consideration and making YOU into the BEST YOU possible. It's awesome.

Well that's what I am dedicating some of my posts to. But, instead of "What Not to Wear" it's going to be "What Not To Do". It's purpose you ask?! To let all of the guys know (cuz I know there are SO many of them that read my blog) that I realize sometimes you may not have your best manners always out but when you don't you make yourself look really bad to potential FECs (Future Eternal Companions). SO I am going to be YOUR own personal Stacey.


What Not to Do #1
See previous post. Bacon Man. Don't tell any girl that she looks like a girl that likes bacon. Enough said.



What Not to Do #2

Watch stalker behaviors. It typically freaks girls out! I.E. Don't meet a girl on facebook, start chatting with her, call her, tell her how gorgeous she is multiple times (girls like this...but NOT when you just "meet" online and have no history together), and ask her to send you a picture of her to your phone 2 times within 2 days (what exactly are you going to do with that picture, Sir?) . I thought I was out of the clear when I didn't answer 2 of his calls last week. BOY was I wrong. He called tonight (a week later), I answered (I figured I could talk to him once a week) but I was in the middle of trying clothes on. So, I told him I'd call him back in a few minutes, which I did. To my astonishment (and relief), he didn't answer. So, I quickly returned another phone call. He then proceeded to call me back not once, not twice, not thrice.....SEVEN times in a matter of 30 minutes. Did I forget to mention that he left one voice message and one text in those 30 minutes?!
Hey Babe sorry i missed your call but go head and call be back when u get this text :)

1. I am not your "babe"
2. I think that I got the hint. I will call you back when I am not busy and can chat.
3. Get a life!

Other stalker behaviors include (but definitely are not limited) to:
- Calling once a day for 6 months, leaving messages every time and never getting a call back (this DID happen to me a few years ago)
- Taking a girl, on a first date to Saguaro Lake, at night, alone and then commenting on how "trusting" she is to let you take her to a secluded lake in the middle of the night. Creepy!?! I think so.



***PS***Some "Stalking" behaviors can be flattering, IF THE GIRL LIKES YOU. But, if she doesn't like you, or if you have NO relationship at all, it WILL freak her out. If you are ever in doubt, please email me and I will will let you know what I think. I have had plenty of creepy, stalker experiences to know what is OK and what is not OK.

Some things cross the line even when you do actually like the guy. And ALL of those listed count.

This is a fantastic section! I need to forward it on to a guy who is after Kianna...he's 28,closer to my age than Kianna and he is still clueless! BTW no, this is not acceptable at my house but he keeps IMing her. At lease he moved out of the state!

Jennica you are fabulous and so should be on that show for the simple fact that Stacy and Clinton need you! :) Let me know how to sign you up and I will! Seriously though, you could even share the story about the bacon man and make him feel like the loser that he is on national tv!

Fresh Poppy Sisters said...

Jennica, you make me laugh and I wouldn't trade places with you for a minute and go back to that dating world!

I TOTALLY want to be on the show, but only after I "lose the weight" of course :) Miss you
