Well its funny, but i think when you are 'less interested' in a positive way, it acts more like a magnet! When you try too hard, you will likely fall into the desperate category (not good).

Just flex your KM charm and i'm sure it will happen. (perhaps not overnight lol).
So true Enigma. When women see you interact with them in a friendly, non-sexual way, and you don't make any moves, well that throws them out of their comfort zone and then slowly the table turns in your favor. They will eventualy come onto you..
I have seen/used this tactic many times when I was younger and still interested in American women. :smt023
Brian agree totally, it's kind of bizarre... i think it works on virtually all females... i probably shouldn't say this, but since its my thread i will.... just considering that perhaps this phenomena is the female version of the 'BOOB effect'.....BUT when using this 'technologly' (if you can call it that) you have to be careful not to be slapped in the 'friends category', where the whole thing back fires and nothing develops. LOL!!

p.s. nah you don't post too much only 100 odd posts... :->

Oh, Christmas, Christmas is so far away, yet despite not being religious I do like the spirit of Christmas.
But I particularly like the food and drink. It gives me an excuse to indulge in some seasonal baking.
Oh, and it's not long now before I start doing the Christmas cake ready for storing away.
Thanks for reminding me. :smt002

I take it you dislike fruit cake. It's about the only cake I can think of that's actually healthy - got all those lovely fruits and nuts in. And it's the only 'healthy' thing I manage to eat over the Christmas/Winterval/Pagan period. :smt036

In large enough quantities it can also be used as a boat anchor.

I hate to admit it, but after hating fruit cake for years and years (mum makes it every year at XMAS time) i tried it warmed up with some rich vanilla ice cream (to hide the taste).... now I'm hooked. :smt011

Well, if you all don't like the traditional fruit cake, you can try it with chocolate added. Nigella Lawson, one of our well known T.V chefs, did a fruit and chocolate version - without the icing or the marzipan though. A friend gave a slice to me one Christmas and I admit it wasn't too bad.
But I still like the traditional recipe. It keeps forever if you wrap it up properly.
And if you REALLY hate Christmas fruitcake - add some extra booze to it while the cook's not looking. That way you might get hammered before you take a second bite. :smt036

Well, Christmas is done for another year.

It is just an excuse to get the family together and have fun. And also get yourself something nice.

In my family we have what we call the Christmas Club. You put money aside each week (and it ends up in credit union account). Around the end of November you get the money out again (with any interest) and split it between the family members etc (this is how kids got money to spend as the family would donate some to them through the splitting method). This helps to avoid the debt at Christmas time because you were putting it aside through the year.

And my mum gave my girlfriend and I a Christmas Cake ( a fruit cake). Her fruit cakes taste very good. Although they are weights, the are too tasty to do anything with other than eat...

Yep. Christmas is done, but the fruitcake isn't. That will probably last us well into January. In fact I put so much alcohol into it this time around it can turn you into...well... a bit of a fruitcake if you eat too much I guess. :smt036

There are different meaning of Christmas according to different opinion of different mind,But From my point of the meaning of Christmas is to enjoy and expertize the day on which the little baby born before thousands of year and became god.Its big days for Christians also and its come at the ed of each so we can start our new year with great prayer.
