Last night I was at a small gathering for my friend's musical performance. There were eight people there and two of them were strangers to me and to another fellow who was there, but they apparently…Continue
"I am a woman and perhaps not the best-qualified to comment on this - sorry for barging in! We just say "best friends" "close friends" or "BFFs" but for some reason, the same relationship between men is called a…"
"Perhaps a nice customized item embroidered, engraved, or stamped with your frat letters or logo? You can get some really nice custom items these days, not just cheap beer cozies or mouse pads, but for example, a Woolrich wool stadium blanket or…"
"It's just a matter of overcoming my social awkwardness - and accepting that most people will not make introductions. I have to be fair to my acquaintainces and not criticize them for ignoring 19th-century etiquette manuals. I am not…"
"That's odd because I always thought that you shouldn't say "hey" to strangers to get their attention - "hey" is slang to be used only around close friends or family, but admittedly I'm not well-versed in modern…"
"No. Wait until the relationship ends, then pursue her. It's not okay to be complicit in her infidelity, no matter how fun it may seem. You are hurting another man and that is wrong, even if the man is a total stranger. It may be that…"
"I can't help but feel sorry for you men - how hard it is to be courteous these days! Hold the door for a woman and she might get offended; don't hold the door for another woman, and she'll be offended, too. Offer your seat or allow…"
"I think it's rude to ask strangers their age - and it's rude to assume you know how old someone is, unless they are obviously a child or teenager. Am I supposed to ask women who look about my age - which is 39 - and then refer to them by…"

"Exactly. Wait for a break, and then USE the fact that you're new to the group AS the ice breaker. Or, find something about which to comment...I couldn't help but notice that beautiful necklace. Whatever...just break that…"
"My musical guilty pleasure: Lady GaGa. In fact, my fiance and I first bonded over the fact that we both like her music. "You and I" will likely be played at our wedding. Say what you want about her outfits ("what the...") or her…"
"Can't stand them. While I can appreciate their prowess as musicians (I used to be in a band, and it's hard work!), their music just sounds like whiney, folk-pop to me. Just not my cup of tea, I guess. They come on the radio, I pop in my…"
"Nice, dark yet it was positive. I like it.
Clichés are Clichés for a reason even a Monkee can understand them.

"I use Tom's deodorant, as the harsh artificial stuff they put in products like Axe or Old Spice(really they sneak bad stuff into everything these days) also gives me rashes- I don't want to think what kind of long-term harm it could be…"
