    Sugar addict - what if you were a Hong Kong ex pat renting a flat in Shepherd's Bush. You're a full time student with unlimited credit card privileges and your family is wealthy. Very wealthy. You enjoy beagles and a ménage of Dolce Gabbana finery. You're inexplicably attracted to a Polish construction worker with limited finances and less than rudimentary English skills. So you buy him an Oyster Card, move him into your flat and accept a marriage proposal.

    How do you make him understand you're a sugar addict without alienating him or causing him to laugh at you?

    A guy can answer that one - The Polish construction worker is fresh off the boat, speaks little English and is working hard for a low wage. He is smitten with the Hong Kong girl and the fact that she is interested in a poor boy like him. It does not hurt that she has a luxurious and high limit credit cards that Daddy pays.
    As to the sugar addiction - his mom is a great cook and makes delicious chruscki, and the little Hong Kong girl loves them, so everyone is happy.

    "It's late on Ash Wednesday. An Asian teenager in a slammed-out Acura offers you a plate of chicken vindaloo...Do you accept?"
    "The teenager is Armenian. The day is Rosh Hashanah. The dish is saag paneer.."
    "The car is a lime-green Scion. The season is the solstice. The dish is chicken tikka masala..."

    MFP mods have a certain allure that even executive secretaries who eat cannolis can't always overcome. Ask @4legsRbetterthan2 .

    Im an evil old hag w a hairlip and warty nose. No appeal here.

    But we are in love

    Is it selfish to take a woman on a first date to a baseball game, even if I know the woman is not a baseball fan...she did say she was willing to “give it a try, if I step outside my comfort zone on a later date...”

    Id say it depends on how interested you are in this woman. I dont really qualify it as selfish, but as a not baseball fan, to me it seems like a good way to have a horrible first date and no more dates after. I would go to the game yourself or with friends, and do something yall both like on a first date. First dates are hard enough.

    It really depends on the woman, truth be told and your reactive responses during the matches. If you were to invite her to Round Robin match days of any sport and she isn't a fan, you're setting yourself up for failure.

    Shot your post @my sister, to which she responded, "Ideally, he should find baseball loving babes!" I agree, IF YOU WERE STUCK on the IDEA of Baseball as your first date with any woman.

    Watching your man play ball, is more fun for any woman who is into her man VS sitting next to your man, as he is glued to a sport you're not even remotely clued in about or follow. Boring. Deadening. UNLESS, you wouldn't be offended by her, if she's on her phone during the game .. Texting ... Social media ... Taking selfies ... Eating ... Wanting to talk to you. :laugh: Lose your game concentration & look into her eyes. :laugh:

    I’m not a baseball fan either but I think a baseball game is a great first date idea. Perfect, in fact

    I’d like to ask a woman how to get a woman. If that doesn’t work, how do I become a woman.

    Seen the pic. False statement. Have people ever told you you're cute as a button? Is that a compliment or an annoying statement? :smiley:

    I guess if you don't want to be treated like a lady then you don't have to act like one. And in certain scenarios it's best NOT to act like a lady. Like a Spartan race. Pick up your petticoats and move!

    If she's not into it then maybe wait a few dates. Agree she could get bored to death and then what?

    Edit - Who's playing?

    First step: stop thinking of women (or a woman) as something to be "gotten". ;)

    How do you feel about "yes, dear"?

    Also just because of those old sexist ads posted earlier in the thread:

    I dont think its annoying, but I dont really get it. Some old saying make sense, but I dont really look at a button and think "oh, how cute!". I wonder how it came about.

    PS gotta keep up my evil mod face. Also, I miss the days when I was just a robot horse.

    1. Was it your kids' game?
    2. Did you already have tickets to said game or did you buy them specifically for the game?
    3. Was there a reason that you just HAD to go to this game when there are like 2749 more games still this year?

    Personally I think a first date should be something both people would enjoy. With that being said I know that adults have busy lives and sometimes you have to squeeze something in when you have the time and that includes involving people in previously scheduled events.

    Taking her somewhere she already may have negative feelings about will tell you a lot about who she is though

    1. not my kids game...first date? No way...

    2. A group of us have season tickets to the local minor league team where I live.

    3. No reason I HAD to go other than that is where I am most comfortable and it is a fun time...

    Colon was a hottie when he'd entered the league ... Today? His fast ball is DAMN HOT and the man is a cutie. Granted, given the opportunity or inclination, he could very likely return to a silver fox version of his 22 year old self, 2 plus decades on.
