Subject: Dates worth singing about. . .
From: Kelida
Date: 29 Apr 00 - 12:48 AM

Okay, well I went out with this guy tonight who I thought was really nice. Of course, as the night progressed, all he talked about was fate, and destiny, and how much we have in common, and after a while I was a bit bored. Also, he's in the Marines, which wouldn't normally bother me, but as an ardent pacifist, I find it a bit hypocritical of me to date someone who wants to be in the infantry. In any case, though, the guy was boring me to tears with all his talk about what a nice guy he was and how he thought it was going to be the start of something "special" and god, he really cares about me already, etc. . . Of course I think this is all just a lot of BS to try and get me in the sack, but he's all no, no, it's not, he really is as nice as he seems, and wow, I'm so perfect adn beautiful, whatever. . . Well, anyway, I was driving because his Camaro is in a small town about three hours away from Cincinnati, and as soon as I get him back to his house, he wants to fool around, so I leave, because hey, it's only a first date with this guy, and what does he think I am, some sort of tramp? Okay, don't get me wrong, I'm trying to understand this, but what is WRONG with some guys? Do they think girls are STUPID? Are we not smart enough to figure guys out?--especially former bad girls like me who know the same tricks and lines.

I'm thinking there is a song in this, and I may think of something later. But this made me think of the one song Max played at the beginning of Radio Episode 31(I think)--BTW, what was the title, author, singer, album of that song?

Also, I was wondering, has anyone (male or female) had similar or any dating experiences that have ever been worth singing about?

Peace--Keli

Kelida, you might try this one for laughs, though I have it on good authority that it's not true. WONDERFUL SHOES

Seriously, there was a period in my life (fortunately fairly long ago) when I was often guilty of acting like your Marine friend, and I'm not proud of it. I wish I could send apologies back through time... I am sorry you had to (have to) put up with crap like that, but I think it's always been there and probably always will. Just keep your sense of humor, and your self-esteem, and your eye on the door.

I think that I've been on the other end of that at times. I don't know which would be worse though; I've never had a girl try to take advantage of me.

Now that I think of it, I'd kind of like that.

Keli, when I saw the thread title, I thought it was going to be about important dates of the calendar, i.e. historical dates, to sing about! Oops! anyway, if it was, I was going to say, tomorrow the 29th is important enough for a good song or two, for Spaw's FIRST BIRTHDAY. To see what I mean see my Thoguht for the Day thread for Saturday.

Oh, and the Marine? Of course you knew exactly what he was up to; they've all tried that line at some time. Nice that some grow out of it and we can love them for that.**BG**

just chalk it up to experience,Kel, we've all been there. Back in the days when I needed it I developed a technique of putting creeps off by aquiring a maniacal gleam, a palsied twitch and either a) saying 'Tell me about your relationship with Jesus' or just letting a thin dribble of red wine run from either side of my mouth. Seemed to do the trick.

This is precisely the type of thread subject and content that provokes a nasty response out of people like us. It has no context or relevance to this Forum in anyway, and is much more appropriate as a letter to "Dear Abby"...or with responses re-directed to Personal Messages.

Kelida, I have posted this before sometime ago but it seems sort of appropriate here. It seems a lot of people in the US are not familier whith the usagage of shag in this verse. To shag is to have sex with...

The festival shagger he sat on the quay playing tunes on banjo an melodeon
Looking at women that he did adore, bodies for him to pray on
As a crowd passed him by, he'd study the form and compare parts of their bodies for size
And if one was sitting close by him be sure, he'd undress her with his eyes.

The festival shagger wasn't really a shagger but at times he wished that he had been
When he thought about women he'd fancy he'd say "just wish I'd been part of the rock scene
If those rumours are true, I'd have sex, drugs and tunes - I'm sure I could learn to enjoy it"
But I can only play folk and to most that's a joke - perhaps I'd do better without it.

The festival shagger was in fact still a virgin when he had his first shag from a gig
From the most fabulous body God ever created and part of the shagger grew big
But the shagger soon learned a lesson - not in sex but in love of a kind
The body he' fancied and wanted to shag had an even more beautiful mind.

The festival shagger still sits on the quay and he plays much the same as before
Just the same old songs - an he still looks at women, there are many that he does adore
He sees beautiful women of all shapes an sizes but he knows that his old ways were blind
He's just looking in vain 'cause his eyes can't be trained to find one with a beautiful mind.

The poem stems from a brief relationship I had with someone and is a blend of fact and fiction. I have also posted this before but here is the tune I ended up writing for Jayne. http://www.jonbanjo.freeuk.com/jayne.mid

Twitchy--If you look at the title of the thread, it IS somewhat music related. I was just wondering if anyone else had experiences like that that made them want to write a nasty anti-opposite-sex-song. However, if you or anyone else wants to flame it, oh well. I can deal with flamers--some of them even have valid points sometimes--I just prefer to think they aren't articulate (or intelligent) enough to say what they mean in a civil manner. Also, if you don't appreciate non-music threads, don't respond to them unless you have something constructive to say. Thanx for explaining to me that this is a thread that might get a few flamers--I knew that when I started it, but why should that stop me.

Everyone else--I'm not a violent person, so I like to avoid the old knee-in-the-nuts tactic--no matter how much that is what I want to do. Then again, it depends on what exactly the guy was like. . .

Mbo--Not all guys are pigs--just all the ones I go out with. . . Man, I have bad taste. The worst thing about this guy was that he KNEW what he was doing and he apologized--then he kept on doing it!! (or trying to)

Jon--I LOVE that poem! Very cool!

Terri--I like those ideas. Maybe I should try that sometime. Or say something to the effect of "yeah, my last boyfriend kept trying to have sex with me all the time, and he had this unfortunate freak accident including his penis and a garbage desposal. . ." hehehe. . .*with a maniacal gleam in my eye*

Peace--Keli

Hundreds of songs about romping and rape. But very few about this sort of situation - which is strange because it's a pretty frequent one.

Poets back in Ireland in the old days used to be treated with great respect, becuse if you offended them, they could make up a satire about you,.and you'd be a laughing stock. Forget about a knee in the balls - that's the way to do it. Kelida's first post almost reads like a song already.

And as for avuncular anonyms who write things like "Consider this post, a free coupon exempting you from a really nasty flame." There's a word for that kind of thing, but it's not one I like to use. And I promised to ignore that kind of nonsense on the Mudcat.

Kelida,

I think I mentioned this somewhere before. Nose picking works every time especially if you look uncertain as to where you intend to deposit your gleanings.

Your story brought back somw fond memories and a smile. Trust your own judgment and unless in real physical danger, don't resort to the "knee in the groin" ploy. From what I have seen of you in Mudcat, I believe you are perfectly capable of cutting down these types with a word or a glance.

You are a very special lady. If you doubt it, read the Male Postings above.

"Let's face it, guys, we're pigs."

Speak for yourself, Mbo. I know for a fact that in my young adult days I lost out with several young ladies because I took them at their word that they didn't want to. In one case, by telephone later, in ending the relationship, she said, "You could have, you know." I said, "I know. I knew. But you SAID no, and I'm not going to be in the position of a rapist [what today we'd call a date-rapist]."

The other young ladies were not as explicit, but the message was just about as clear. One said, "Nice guys finish last." So be it. Like Popeye, "I yam what I yam," and that's going to be straight-up or nothing.

Well I wasn't speaking for myself, but for the male gender as a whole-- the multitudes of pig-men out there often overshadow the good ones. Check out TV shows and music, check out all the women I hear talking at my college. You hardly ever hear a kind word. It can't be that it's some sort of myth. There's less of "us" and more of "them".

BTW there are LOTS of Marines and their families that I have known over the years who have been some of the nicest folks I've ever met. Yeah, the young ones are pretty much a bad lot (and they are real reckless drivers, I know) especially grunts and gun-bunnies. There are some good ones though. My Dad used to have a guy who worked for him who was the same age as I am now. His catch line was "I can do that." You could give the guy any job and he would find a solution (he was a heavy vehicle mechanic BTW), not to mention an all-around nice guy. They're not all bad.

I know I am never gonna try anything like that garbage on a girl, unless I have a permission document, signed notorized! **BG**

Kelida,

I'm sure this isn't the first time you've run across one of these types and it won't be the last. The only good thing about first dates a lot of times is that it can also be the last date! I hope, though, that you didn't go into this guy's house on the first date...that could be dangerous as I'm sure you know. Just be careful.

doesterr--

You didn't "lose out" on those women. They clearly gave you the idea that the answer was "no" and you did the right thing--and may have saved yourself some crimianl charges, as you mentioned. Anyone who plays games like that is not worth your time in the first place. And Dave, you sound like a great guy--those women lost out on YOU.

doesterr's story reminds me of THE NEW MOWN HAY

(which exists in lots of variants).

So he's gone down to her father's garden
That was walled all around, O,
But she gave him the slip, and she slipped inside, and she locked him out of doors, O,
She locked him out of doors, O!"

"O there is a cock in my father's garden
"That never will tread the hens, O!
"He struts all day and he flaps his wings, and I think you're just like him, O!
"I think you're just like him!"


Sometimes you just can't win. But then winning and losing only comes into it if you're treating it as a competitive sport."Scoring" - what a nauseating expression...

In my first year of university I stood up some guy one night because I had felt very uncomfortable about accepting the date but had allowed myself to be overpersuaded by a friend. Later a friend said I should write three poems about it, I Left Him In the Donut Shop, Walnut Kruller Crumbs, and some other one whose title I forget. I never did write them but maybe I should try now.

As for men are all pigs? Well my wife tells me this too, and I remind her that we had to work hard to get that far! But in truth, I know from personal experience that women can seek the same goal, though they're normally more subtle about it.

And as for first date?? Who's counting?? If it's the right first date; you'll be pushing him into the sack!

Yeah, Shambles. 1066 has always been a favorite of mine.

Funny thing, Kelida - a friend of mine and I were talking about this kind of thing a few days ago. (He and I are both in our early fifties.) He said, "Yes, there was a time when getting into a woman's pants was the driving force in my life. Now the desire is still there; but the imperative has faded."

There were times in my life when putting notches on the bedpost might have been really important - well, let's be real here: it would have been damned important! But respecting the wishes of the women I dated was even more important to me. And I am quite sure that there were some, who, if I had been just a little more persistent, would have been persuaded to "give o'er". I know for certain that there are guys out there who can respect your wishes, Kelida and who will be at least equally intent upon getting to know what is in your heart as well as knowing how you might feel between the sheets.

And, yes, I agree that there seems to be the makings for a song here. Perhaps as you read this thread you'll be moved to write one.

Bear in mind, K, that the maturation curve in males -- especially in this culture -- often lags well behind that of females of the same chronological age. So if you want heart-smart, you may need to look to men who have learned how to take some responsibility in the world, maybe had some hard times or learned what loss and risk are really all about. At least, the percentages are better. I know from recent experience that it is possible to find a sensitive and competent (both!) HS-age or thereabouts Western male, but it is almost amazing when it happens. Try looking among musicians rather than Marines -- they have rather a different perspective on the topic! :>)

Sounds like Amos is pointing you in his direction. Red Alert, K.

I'm sorry, Harpgirl, but I don't feel that way. If something is bugging you, why not let out the steam to some faceless names? To me that works better than having to tell them to some one standing in front of you. Besides this horrific dating experience is hardly worth paying a hundred dollars an hour to bitch to a therapist about.

Why not let out steam at some faceless names?

Perhaps because the 'faced' ones deserve it more.

We want Kelida to become a 'bad girl' again!!!

uncool, harpgirrl. There's plenty of threads to read out there w/o coming in here and flaming on.

I think most young persons have been through something like your experience, Kelida, and not all with the same happy ending. As to songs, there are a goodly set of "robber bride" type songs (the names escape me) where the lusty gent is outwitted by a fair young maid, who usually takes off on his horse, or motorcycle or whatever and leaves him in the lurch. Of course, these are told from the guy's point of view, so it's told as a terrible crime against the guy....*snerk*

As for messages like threadie's, blech!! There are plenty of nice sex workers out there, threadie, and you don't even have to buy them dinner. If sex is your only aim for a date, be honest about it and hire a professional.

Sometimes a date is just a date, and sometimes "no" means "no".

'nuff said.

sorry, that last line should have read,

"Sometimes the object of a date is just the date.."
