What Are Your Skills?
You know, like nunchuck skills, bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills.

Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills.

1. Um...your issue may not be in the skills you have, but in thinking
women want men who know how to bow hunt or computer hack -- those really aren't the kinds of things I think of first when someone mentions skills . :silly:

3. Easy for you to say. You're like the only guy at school who has a mustache
Edited on Sat Jan-08-05 11:30 AM by mondo joe
You have a sweet bike. And you're really good at hooking up with chicks. Plus you're like the only guy at school who has a mustache.

14. As a matter of fact, I am not the only guy at school with a moustache --
really. trust me. And, I'm not so good at hooking up with the chick, either. I do have a really sweet cannondale, but that's really just a ride for one person.

yvr girl: HELP ME :P

19. I assume from your name you are a male
as a woman, I can tell you that what I wanted-and found-was a man who was gentle, who cared for me as a person, who was interested in spirituality, and who loved me for me. Don't know that these are skills as much as qualities.

31. obviously a generation gap
as I don't know what the photo you showed refers to. I can assure you my husband doesn't look anything like that person. He's a mechanic and muscular with long hair and a beard. He plays drums and discusses philosophy.

21. I can fix a DVD player within 20 minutes.
Unfortunately most DVD players are worth about $20 these days. When they stop playing it is usually just alinging the loading mechanism and cleaning and lubing and it will play.

35. I make firebreathing chili, decadent brownies, damn good
stir fry, melt in your mouth home made cakes in many varieties,
real Hungarian goulash,

I grow beautiful iris and day lilies

I raise really sweet cats and one really great daughter

take photos and occasionally get a really good one like:






and here is another who knows about nursing babies and I am a really cool mom (so say my daughter's friends)

and I can figure out your health insurance

Give me about 6 months and I can figure out your home mortgage issues, since I just started this job.

My brain is chock full of weird information that just sticks in there from all the things I read, so I am one of those encyclopedia persons, the stuff just surfaces from time to time and I have to tell people about it. LOL

39. I would make a lousy boyfriend.
Largely because I am a woman, and a married one at that.

Skills? I can type fast. I'm a decent writer. I'm a great cook, if I do say so myself. I can do the crossword puzzle in ink. I can walk and chew gum at the same time.
