  1. Probably doesn't help much now, but my gmail stopped syncing for me a few days ago. I waited a day or so, and tried to resync through the accounts & sync menu. There was actually a little message on there saying that sync was having issues and to try back later. I tried the next day, and everything was fine. No factory reset, or anything.
  2. Run, run fast.While I tend to think (know) this is good advice, I have yet to do so. This is my first success story since getting divorced (which by the way, is not even 100% official yet!). I have seen her again, which ended up even more physical than the first time. This time, she flat out asked:"I know this is probably early, and there is no right or wrong answer...but what do you think about being exclusive?" I hope by the sudden silence that I maintained for about 30 seconds, that she understands that is not what I'm looking for right now, but in the moment, I came back with something lame like "Um...I don't know...we'll have to talk about that". Of course, we didn't. Still, I am supposed to see her tomorrow, and I think I'll have to bring it up before we get too far along. It is way too early, and not what I'm looking for (at least with her), so I at least owe it to her to be honest and let her know where I'm coming from. I'm just goofing around. Do what you think is best. At least ride the pony for a while. Continuing my mini-saga:I told her my expectations, about not wanting to be exclusive, and she surprised me with her response. She said she's fine with that (then why did she ask ). Granted, we'll see...but I told her flat out. I decided to push my luck a little bit. Said something along the lines of, I was worried that it might come off sounding like I'm only looking for a 'booty-call' type scenario. Apparently, she's ok with that too. Hmmm. So I asked about seeing other people - and she said 'ignorance is bliss'. Though of course if any real 'relationship' came about, I would certainly tell her. So good...at least for now. We are back to just 'dating' and enjoying the perks that come with that. And I'm free to explore other opportunities, if they should come up.

Think of the shtick potential...Sad thing is, it wouldn't surprise me if she said yes.

Just be honest and say you aren't interested in anything serious right now and just want to enjoy each other's company and see how it shakes out. Believe it or not, this will make her even MORE into you. Trust me. I believe you. I just don't think I want her even MORE into me. I certainly enjoy the 'benefits'...however I am not looking for a full-blown relationship with the first girl I hook up with coming out of my marriage. I think the honesty is the best route, and then I can leave it up to her if she wants to continue hanging out. I'm ok with it either way. I was nervous about getting back into the dating world, but at least now I have a little bit of confidence back.

  6. So I had a date with a new girl last night. Younger this time (31), and cute, though not really my 'ideal' type. When she left this morning , she said she thinks I'm a keeper. Uh-oh...
  7. So that was anti-climatic. Met (with a handshake, 2 handed friendly-like, not business-like) and had a few drinks and appetizers. She looked great. Had I not known how old she was, I would have guessed mid to late 30's. She's a thin, blonde, flight attendant. Anyway, we had an easy time talking, but at the end she said she thought I might not be quite ready. Apparently, I'm too honest. Oh, and too nice. We ended with a hug, and she said she'd keep in touch, and encouraged me to as well...but I'm sure that's not likely. Anyway, it was good to get that 1st one out of the way. On the bright side, this person wants to contact me:
  8. Worth it, right?Meet as many girls as possible, so you'll stop being nervous. It helps. You should also widen your age range imo. You might be surprised how many girls are interested in older guys. And there are some older chicks who have really taken care of themselves. I'm 35 and have a 22-39 range. YMMV. Totally worth it! And believe it or not, I actually learned quite a bit I think. I'll broaden the search range. Got a few other decent options I've been talking with too. And plenty of crazies.
  9. Lot of potential here. GL peeasSuggest emptying the chamber during pregame. I'm guessing that won't be necessary...but I suppose you never know. What's the proper way to 'say hello' when we first meet. Handshake? Half-hug? Kiss on the cheek? 45? Third base."I don't know your last name yet. Hope this isn't too forward..."
  10. This is your main problem. Just enjoy the ride and have fun. Meet some new people, get out of the house, get some occasional new nookie and build your porftolio of good life stories and lessons on the bad dates. Better yet, get in the mindset that you don't really want or need anything to turn serious and that's usually when it just kind of happens naturally.Exactly. That's the plan! I have turned down a few when I told them I was not looking for anything too serious right off the bat. Figured they'd either be gone, or say no problem - they're just looking to date as well.

  12. Going on my first official iDate tonight. A little nervous. Backstory: Married 12 years. Technically still am... but the wife has been out for a year now, and we're just waiting on the lawyers to make things official. Got on match and POF - saw a lot of duplicates on both sites. I'm not sure if it's me not being ready to get back in, or what, but I constantly was turning them down. Like I couldn't see myself in a 'long-term relationship', so why bother going out? Anyway, I think I'm past that now, as the woman I'm seeing tonight is not one I would normally see. She's 45. Again... I'm 35, and in my search listings, I was searching for 28-36. This one found me. She's an attractive, thin, blonde - and everyone I talked to told me to just do it...So I am. Headed out for dinner/drinks tonight. No idea what to expect. 1st real date in years - and considering I was with my wife for 6 years before we were married, there weren't a whole lot of real dates before that. Oh, and I've spent the past several weeks reading this entire thread.
  13. What's he saying about the fact that his show has sucked for the first two episodes of the season?Seems to be ignoring it...Only mention was after the 1st episode:
  14. Went back and looked at Glenn Howerton's Twitter. Had some responses to complaints about the product placement. Good points on his part, I thought. Especially the 2nd to last one.
  15. Agreed. Seems like they're forcing it, and trying too hard.
  16. yes, go to the settings for the default sms client and un-check the notification option.When I go to the SMS Settings in the default sms client, I see "Notifications" to check or uncheck but that says it's for the status bar. Is that it? Or does it just affect the status bar somehow?Thanks.JThere should be two check boxes, one says Received Notification and the other says Play Notification Sound. Now I have an HTC phone running Android 2.1 so it may be slightly different on yours. If you only have a box for Notification then un-check that and it will disable sound notification as well as status bar notification. The Handcent SMS client will put a notification on the status bar.On my droid x,There is a button for "notifications - status bar" that you can check or uncheck.Under that, there is a "select ringtone" button.If you uncheck the notifications button, you can't open the select ringtone button.If you check the notifications button, you are prompted to "complete action using" and you have the choice of android system, rings extended or select music. If I go to rings extended and select the mp3 I want, I still get the default droid ringtone in addition to the mp3 I wanted. Hmmm.JShould work if you just uncheck the notification button there. Essentially, that means you'll never see or hear from the stock message app (unless you manually open it). Then you simply select the ringtone you want in Handcent.
  17. He is just posturing for his next contract with Sirius. he does this EVERY 5 years (obviously previously with terrestial). Gets annoyingAgreed, but that sounded like a very unintentional slip. There was no mention of it, and he instantly corrected himself. He has also been refusing to comment to callers and anyone who questions what's happening with his contract. So really, he has NOT been posturing (recently). If he were trying to negotiate, as in the past, he would make comments to callers and discuss his issues on the air. And all that has come to a stop.
  18. So during the Benjy rant this morning, when Howard was talking about Evan the Engineer, he said 'Whe...IF we leave here, I am definitely taking you with me!' or something along those lines. He definitely started to say when and switched it to if. FWIW.
  19. Listening to a guy fart = Turning off the radio It's not fun. It's not funny.
  20. Huuuuge still makes me laugh when they throw it in at the right time. I also love the Tradio 'Thank you for your call' line.
  21. We did the Princess Breakfast back in June. Overall, we were a bit disappointed. For what we paid, the food was meh...and time with princesses was limited to a quick stop and photo. Not really sure what we expected, but we would not do it again. We did have dinner at the Grand Floridian (Cinderella's Gala Feast), and this was much better. The character interaction was great, and my girls had a blast. Still pricey, but for dinner it's justifiable. Probably too late to get reservations, but I suppose you never know.
  22. Details?We loved our dinner there in June. Great food, and great fun for the kids.
  23. Cool! Good point about the shoes. She should be fine then!There's no way I'd get her on any of those rides anyway. Doubtful I'll get my 7 year old on those either (but I'm hoping to get her on something a little thrilling at least). Maybe Big Thunder Mountain? I've never been on 'Soarin. But I hear it's awesome. That's 40", so I'm assuming that's a 'safe' ride for kids?
  24. #1 tip: Go to the parks EARLY. Try to get to there 15-30 minutes before the parks open. Hit all of the rides that get long lines first (For instance at Magic Kingdom: Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mtn RR, Pooh, Dumbo) then when it starts to get crowded you can start seeing the shows and/or less popular attractions. When it gets too hot and/or too crowded head back to the hotel for a nap or a swim. Then head back to the park around dinner time when people begin to leave and start hitting attractions you've missed.By getting to the park early you will be able to do more in the first 3 hours then you would in the next 6 or 7. Plus you are doing most of your touring in the cooler morning and evening hours.Good info. I would think it would still be busy in the morning though. If you're paying that much just to get in, I'd assume you'd want to get your money's worth and be there when they open. From what I hear though, your plan sounds ideal.Anyone have any more current thoughts on Extra Magic Hours? Should we try to utilize these, or avoid the parks on those specific days due to crowds (weather they are morning or evening)? With a 4 year old, I'm guessing we won't get too much out of the evening EMH (and if we did, then I'm sure that would negate the 'get there early in the morning' for the next day at least). How 'empty' are the parks for these? Can you essentially walk on the rides? My youngest will be borderline 40 inches (hoping for a growth spurt the next 3 months), so we won't be doing the big thrill rides anyway. The 7 year old...will be interesting to see what, if anything, she will be willing to ride.
