Blogiversary: Day Two

Yesterday's post was enlightening and informative for many. I also heard from several people who told me the entry made them want to kiss. May I remind everyone that I am available for practice purposes. Ahem.

Today's entry comes from an anonymous guest-blogger who we will refer to as Mr. X. I hope you enjoy this entry as much as I do.

WOW!!! You really hit the nail on the haed with this one... lots of the top ten are right on the money for both good and bad.

Mr X., on "Bad #5":

An unclear answer has to be treated as a "no." Othwerise, we just encourage more unclear answers.

Great list(s).

For the record... I am not Mr. X. However, I think Mr. X is very wise...

Mr. X-
To give you a female's perspective...an unclear answer is a no. It is so uncool for a girl not to be clear. Guys deserve more than that. If a guy asks me out and I already have plans, but I would really like to go, I say something like, "Oh, I have plans, but that sounds really fun. Maybe we could hangout another weekend?" Girls always leave the door open for guys we like.

Good job.

Some of those apply to girls and guys...like watching people you care about find love and the parties with couple, etc. I also agree that waiting on God's best is a rewardingly challenging thing. It builds so much character and faith, but at the same time requires so much character and faith!! Great lists!
