"We were just told something along the lines of "Pictures are on X day so look nice or deal with the consequences of having a crappy picture." "

Andrew replied to James B.'s discussion Just got a girl's number, need some advice
"Exactly what Joe said!  She is clearly interested.  Make sure you have a specific plan for the date. Suggest a day and time but let her ultimately decide that based on her schedule.  FOR GOD"S SAKE do NOT text! "

Don Judd replied to Don Judd's discussion Selecting a belt?
"Thanks guys. I didn't realize that braided belts were okay for professional attire.  I also didn't realize the thrift shops were a good place to look for quality belts. We are a small town, and have no cobblers or leather shops here…"

Rick Shelton replied to Demetri Martinez's discussion Falling in Love Hurts
"I don't think you're completely correct that there is no "one".  There is a "one", that is the one you feel you want to propose to.  It's not a "one and only" type of thing but one you can…"

Rick Shelton replied to Don Judd's discussion Selecting a belt?
"If you can afford it purchase good belts from places like Eddy Bauer or other higher end stores.  The reason is that although you're paying $40 to $50 a belt it will last you much longer.  If a belt at Walmart costs you $20 and over…"
