The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    1st date ideas

    Well I havent gone on a date in a long time...very long time.

    A female from work asked me out and suggested that I plan what we are going to do. So...me 27...her 26 and as of this point I really have no clue what she is interested in. She simply asked me out and I said yes...why not . Give me some ideas

    I was thinking...dinner and then maybe a) bowling b) mini golf c) shooting at the range d) movie

    That sound like fun except for a movie, that doesn't give you a chance to talk. I would take to eat somewhere nice and then maybe out to little club where we can have a few drink play pool and dance. The bowling sound like fun as well, but make sure she is dressed for it to. Oh yeah and wash your car and vacuum the inside

    movies suck - no chance to chat
    miniputt/bowling is fun if it's not too redneck for her/you

    shooting is cool; if you found a girl that's into guns, i'm jealous already


    really, I think the best date isn't a specific place but a set of circumstances; you want a chance to talk, a chance to interact and a chance to have fun together

    what about an arcade or something, where you can let her win at something. also sometime the best time to talk is on the ride there, if you have to drive a distence.

    I need to make a collection of these quotes.

    But seriously, I'd say a nice dinner, followed by some mini-golf and ice cream would be fun. If the chick is in her mid-late twenties and she A) doesn't like mini-golf or B) sucks at mini-golf, then you know she ain't good relationship material.

    If a guy took me to the range on a first date, I would probably put out.

    OK, just kidding about the putting out part, but he would score major points.

    Hmm.. What if he had less knowledge of firearms than you do? And ended up dropping the mag when he tried to fire? Would he still score?

    No. Then he would have no chance.



    And I would probably shoot him in the face for being a fool.

    Big Show's tips to impress a lady on a first date

    1)Buy her a little something(teddy bear,a small bouquet)

    2)Avoid the movie and the club;in a theater you can't talk and a club is loud.And drunken buffoons can kind of be a kill joy(not refering to you but the clubber around you

    3)Go to a nice dinner;doesn't have to be an expensive place but just not your local McD's

    4)A little friendly competition;check out the bowling alley or the local fun centre for a little friendly competition.

    Back in my day I was known as the teenage Casanova,a modern day John Shaft ........................Okay I'm kidding about that but I still think the tips are sound

    I dont even know if she likes guns...so maybe the shooting range will have to wait for a 2nd or 3rd date kinda thing...Not sure if she would be too thrilled about shooting a mini-14 or an XD40

    So I am leaning towards dinner....then on to a place to have a few drinks and play pool. Or I was thinking about this place downtown that is a rock climbing gym...

    BTW..show I am not trying to impress her. She can take me for who I am...no need to try to impress her.

    rock-climbing is cool, but do they have shower facilities?

    if not, the oral sex might have tob e saved for when y'all aren't quite so gamy.

    I wouldn't want to sweat on a first date unless it's at the end of the date(if you know what I mean *insert wink and elbow budge* )

    Yeah I figured that the rock climbing place wouldnt be so hot because we would be all sweaty. I guess its either bowling, or the pool hall for a few drinks and some pool...

    Monster truck rallies or dirt track racing is always a hit here.

    G-B take her to dinner then maybe a nice cafe or small bar or a different resturant and have a few drinks (if she dosnt drink) walk her around downtown or to a park this usually does good for me

    If I took my date for a walk to the park or downtown, after dinner, we' would probably end up getting mugged.

    Just a thought, but unless you have known her for a while or REALLY want to impress her isn't all this a bit much for a first date?

    Now granted I move at a snail's pace when it comes to dating, but how about a casual dinner - someplace with a view and a winelist. And then coffee afterwards. either at someplace that you can walk to from the resturant or someplace where you can walk around, like a nice hotel with a cool lobby or one that has nice entertainment like a jazz club.
