Can I get a What What

So let me preface this blog and put a disclaimer: "I, Justin Tanner am a single man and in no way pretend to know what I am talking about. Iam merely spreading my opinion like peanut butter at 12AM snack."

Men need jugulars. Think about how dating works. A man must approach the female. In rare cases do women approach men and Tommy Nelson says that if this happens, you should run. I like to call those kinda girls Bathshebas or Proverbs 7 women. Anyway. So think about it with
me. The whole dating process works differently in every situation. Sometimes, it's clear that you can "get the girl." She has given all the clear signs, all you need to do is harvest the crop. Whether the signs came from what people told your or from the girl herself, they
are there and you have confidence. I will be honest here. I do not have $*#($# like most guys. I rarely have asked girls out in my life. Mainly because I'm usually not interested enough to want that. I think something happened in 3rd grade that messed me up for life. lol.

The cutest girl in school, whom Ed dated. Well were in 3rd grade, this consisted of sharing milk and maybe passing notes. Well her name was Kim. I got enough courage to ask her if she liked me. It took me a LONG time. I was scared! If I could show you a picture of myself
in the 3rd grade, I would. Imagine a dirty-blonde headed kid with the same size head I have now and the same size ears. I was struggling then too. Well I walked up right after class and said

JT: "Do you like me?" (enter and braces stage right)
Kim: "No!" (exits abruptly with stamina)

This is what I like to call, being "shutdown." I learned this early in my life. Some guys just don't care, they get "shutdown" all the time. Some might say they have *#*(#, but I just say they are stupid.haha.

So back to this thing called dating. Girls, I know you get the shaft a lot of time because guys don't communicate to you. For them, I apologize. I'm a communicator now but haven't always been, forgive me for I have sinned. But for a guy to communicate, girls have to give
signals! You don't have to try and make out with a guy to show him you like him. You don't have to take your shirt off either Proverbs 7 women. It's just funny to think about dating and how this whole thing works. I was listening to some things today in my ramblings and it
made me think of all these random things.

Justin - I fully agree! Although, you are right...guys pretty much stink at communicating!

Laura said...

Well, I could say the same thing everyone else does and be a cliche, but... ok I will... There is a wonderful woman out there for you. A better match than you could pick for yourself! God has made her just for you, but He has things He wants you to do for His glory before He gives you your prize and has to share you. When people had said things like that to me in the past I always thought "but I want him now." It was well worth the wait and I'm sure Ed and Julie would agree and anyone else you know that has "found the right one". You're such an awesome guy and a great friend too! Waiting is the hard part...

Oh, I wasn't writing this to say that I'm not happy, I wrote this because I think the whole dating process is funny. I'm much happier as a single man. Always have been, maybe I have the gift, I hope not. haha.

I was going to leave an in depth comment but I'd have trouble communicating it effectively.

Instead I'll just disagree with you Justin. It helps me immensely when a girl makes out with me to show me that she's interested. It's like "Whew! I now know where she stands."

JT said...

Jason, I'm glad you are my friend. lol. Is it possible to date a girl that's a bad kisser? Would you like to take this one Jason?

Jason said...

Honestly, I'd rather eat a dookie sandwich.

Just kidding. I don't think I'm the person to judge that. Last I heard....I really "SUCK" at kissing.

Well, I think that girls like to THINK that they are good communicators but they're really not. Men are pretty simple and if we (ladies) communiticated what we really meant (using signals or plain english) then men would mess it up so bad. Over all we all suck at this. And--bad kissers can be taught! "wax on, wax off"

erin said...

justin tanner..man thank you so much for clearing things up...i guess i was taking 1 Thessalonians 5:26 way out of context.."Greet all the brothers with a holy kiss."
No more making out in the prayer towers, thank you now i can comply with CIU's standards.

JT said...

Erin, kissing is even fun. At least that's what my boyz Jason and Ed told me.

erin said...

hey no doubt...i mean not that i would know anything about it either...just what i read in Teen magazines..but i think someone recently got called out on a blog about being quite the make out artist in high school...dont deny your pimp roots.

JT said...

I will try and forget that you just said "make-out artist." In my almost 25 years, i have never heard that. I don't know what Jerri is talking about. I only kiss girls on the cheek. Hilarious erin.

April said...

All I have to say is that I am truly thankful that I got back in touch with Jason, which led me to blogging, which leads me to read all of these hilarious comments! You guys are great...kissing and dookie sandwiches...yum! :)

JT said...

April, u know what the sad thing is. You'd be surprised at how many friends we have made by jason asking that simple question. YUCK :) but it's funny and people seem to respond positively.

jerri said...

Justin, denial won't work because nothing that happens in Dillon is kept secret for long. I would take my approach and blame it on youthful ignorance. Oh and guys, don't let Justin fool you, he still holds claim to the title of sweetest date I've ever been on so I think he's got more figured out than he lets on.

JT said...

Jerri Smith. You are not supposed to make me feel good on my blog, it's suppose to be a place to tear down. Everyone on here knows that I'm a catalyst, just spurring girls on to find better things. LOL.. Jerri, what date was this????? You DON'T need to respond on here......
