Date a Girl who Walks

Cogito ergo something

Date a girl who walks

Solitary walks on rough terrain

Summer sun beating down on her

Not afraid of muddy boots in rain.


She’ll never run out of stories to tell

Isolated discoveries on solitary walks

Keen observer of the universe

She’ll let you be the first to talk.


As she saunters on, in harmony with nature

Or a song already stuck in her head

When Pink Floyd say “Wish You were Here”

You’ll know who she was thinking of then.


She’s not perfect, no one is

She might have taken a wrong turn or two

But it takes patience to be lost, then found

She will be patient with you.


But, what’s the fun of knowing one’s way?

Get lost somewhere, no maps, no signs,

And when you find each other again

The road will have showed you why.

Kiss her tired feet at…

45 Questions To Guarantee You’ll Never Have A Boring Date Again

Thought Catalog

Knocked Up (Unrated Widescreen Edition)Knocked Up (Unrated Widescreen Edition)

I have a secret game that I play in every conversation I have. Until now, no one knew about it… but I’m about to dish the deets. 😉

I try to get every person I interact with to say, Wow. That’s a great question… at least once in our conversation.

To win at this game, I have to stay super present and plugged in to who I’m chatting with so I can artfully select a question that pushes them to lean into an area of their brain they don’t normally hang out in. To turn a flashlight on in the halls of their head and search for an answer to a question they never imagined they’d have to answer.

It’s fascinating watching them dig deeper into who they are. To experience them introspectively retreat for a few moments and rummage through their noggin’ for the…

Thought Catalog

1. Would you rather date someone who’s highly ambitious about their career, or someone who cares more about passions outside of work?

2. Would you rather be with someone who wants to start a family in the very near future, or someone who’d like to wait a few years to really figure things out?

5. Do you want to be with someone who’s confrontational and places the problem right on the table, or…

64 Things Every Geek Should Know

Caintech.co.uk

tv-300x224If you consider yourself a geek, or aspire to the honor of geekhood, here’s an essential checklist of must-have geek skills.

The term ‘geek’, once used to label a circus freak, has morphed in meaning over the years. What was once an unusual profession transferred into a word indicating social awkwardness. As time has gone on, the word has yet again morphed to indicate a new type of individual: someone who is obsessive over one (or more) particular subjects, whether it be science, photography, electronics, computers, media, or any other field. A geek is one who isn’t satisfied knowing only the surface facts, but instead has a visceral desire to learn everything possible about a particular subject.

A techie geek is usually one who knows a little about everything, and is thus the person family and friends turn to whenever they have a question. If you’re that type of person…
