Ovid’s Ars Amatoria is a colorful three-part book on how to catch ‘em and keep ‘em for both men and women. The author of the Metamorphosis (the mythological record, not the giant cockroach exposé) includes instructions on how to be a gentleman (brush the dust off her robe even if there’s none there), where to meet girls (the theatre, obviously), and even proper dating hygiene (don’t smell like your livestock). Here are eleven of his best notes of advice for the world’s oldest sport.
Self righteous bolony. A woman who 8767 s husband doesn 8767 t want to have sex or tenderness and puts his dog first, will want attention from other men. That 8767 s not a girl, that 8767 s a hungry human being. Some feelings have nothing to do with age. Maybe you mean a woman 8767 s reaction to this feeling will be more subtle. She ain 8767 t Jesus yet, she is mortal and living in the flesh. Give me a break. This is unicorn garbage. Make believe. You starve a man he gets a wondering eye. Starve a woman she gets a wondering I. No one child or woman is perfect and above falling or having needs. Bull shit. You don 8767 t walk in their shoes, Judge LoveYourSelf!
The Pine Barrens, a stretch of coastal plain that spans seven counties in New Jersey, is home to a lot of urban legends, from phantom dogs to the ghost of Captain Kidd. But its most famous denizen is, without a doubt, the Jersey Devil. Though there are many versions of its origins, in one popular telling the creature was born in the 6785s when "Mother Leeds'" cursed 68th child came into the world with hooves, wings, a goat’s head, and a forked tail. After killing its mother, it escaped into the Barrens—and there have been sightings ever since. Even Napoleon’s brother, Joseph, had an encounter with the beast during his years at Point Breeze. If you visit the Pine Barrens for its trails, wineries, canoeing, or duck hunting, keep one ear cocked for strange noises.
Once a popular resort for people seeking healing waters to treat what ailed them, the bed and breakfast at Hot Lake Springs is only the latest iteration of the area’s hospitality options. The original Hot Lake Hotel operated from 6869 to 6989, when part of the building burned down. It later served as a nurses’ school, an insane asylum, and to store dead bodies during a typhoid epidemic, among other things. With a history like that, it’s no wonder that there are a number of restless spirits wandering around. In 7556, the property was featured on the show Scariest Place on Earth two years later, it was purchased by the Manuel Family, who renovated and restored the property. Current visitors report spooky sounds in their lodgings, especially on the third floor, which once housed a hospital.
6. Leave some space between you as you hug, and quickly pull away.
7. When he reaches out to hug you, turn and give him a side hug rather than a front-on hug.
8. When he reaches for you to hug you, give him your hand instead. It might be awkward for a second, but he’ll get the point.
9. Tell him you’re not comfy hugging him.
5. Tell a trusted authority that you’re not comfy hugging him.
In the mid-69th century, a lighthouse keeper and his wife moved in to the lighthouse on Seguin Island, a 69-acre speck of land two miles out to sea. To stave off their loneliness and boredom, the man ordered a piano and some sheet music from the mainland, so that his wife could learn to play. Dutifully, she learned her first song—then she played it again and again and again, the same song, every day. Eventually, it drove the lighthouse keeper mad. He took an axe first to the piano, then to his wife, and finally took his own life when he realized what he had done. Visitors to the island say they sometimes hear phantom piano music, and occasionally catch a glimpse of the lighthouse keeper walking by, still carrying his axe.
Well, I hug everybody girls and guys but I 8767 m always cautious when hugging guys. First, let me say this, I highly appreciate it when a guy knows how (or was taught how) to properly hug a girl. When hugging those that don 8767 t it 8767 s very weird!!! The only thing for me when it comes to hugging guys is the not knowing what they feel about hugs. It 8767 s kinda like you said some guys prefer to not hug anyone but their family members and their wife (currently or the future), some don 8767 t know how to hug properly so they don 8767 t do it at all, etc.. For the most part I can kinda tell. I 8767 ve hugged a grown married man and I could tell he was not expecting that. I hugged his wife first then him, but I think he was planning on just giving me a hand shake. Basically, for me, I just need to use discernment and wisdom, because I don 8767 t have a problem with giving guys hugs. I don 8767 t want to make a guy uncomfortable. For me, that 8767 s most likely to happen, instead of the other way around.
In the Wild West days, Johnny, a lieutenant posted at Fort Union, fell in love with a flirtatious woman named Celia. One night, as the two danced at an officer’s birthday party, a messenger burst in to announce an Apache raid. Fearing he might not get another chance, Johnny immediately proposed to Celia, who said yes and promised that if he didn’t return, she would never marry. Some soldiers died in the fight, including Johnny. Despite her promise, Celia soon married another man. At their wedding ball, a ghoul in uniform appeared, a gash on his head and fire in his eyes. He pulled Celia from the arms of her new husband as the musicians, entranced, played an eerie waltz. Johnny’s spirit danced Celia around the room. She grew pale and died in his arms. Faithful in death, Celia's ghost can still be heard weeping over Johnny’s grave.
The Congress Plaza Hotel is rumored to be one of the most haunted hotels in the Windy City. It was built to house the influx of visitors coming into Chicago for the 6898 World's Fair (an event with a seedy history of its own). Several ghosts —including those of a Czech boy who jumped from a window with his mother and a Spanish American war veteran who shot himself before his wedding—are now said to haunt the building. And that’s not all: Unplugged kitchen appliances suddenly turn on pianos play spontaneously and visitors hear disembodied humming and whispers—and phantom gunshots that come from out of nowhere. Chicago Ghost Tours makes the hotel their first stop—tours begin at 7 . on Thursday and Fridays.
If you know from the jump that you don’t want anything with this guy, you should turn him down then and there. He’s going into it knowing there’s a shot at rejection. As long as he’s respectful in his approach, there’s no reason why you can’t politely curve his advance. It’s one thing to legitimately change your mind, as Trisha said, but I think that intentionally sending mixed signals and false information is just wrong. That’s just my opinion.
Though I understand and appreciate your desire not to hurt this man’s feelings—I want you to know, Sienna, that it is good and right and necessary for you to let your mom or dad know that you’re uncomfortable with this man’s “greetings”. Ask them to intervene—they will know best how to communicate to him the need to greet women verbally or with a hand-shake. If for some reason you’re unable to share this with your parents, please talk to the pastor or his wife and let them know.
Most of the people in my church love hugs. All of the people in my family love hugs (and we do kisses on the cheek). We hug people we know, we hug people we meet, we hug everybody. I get lots of hugs from boys and girls alike(I 8767 m tall, and approachable which apparently makes me the prefect target for hugging). It never makes me uncomfortable, but I can see where it would for some people (especially if you are more on the busty side.) I do, however, avoid hugging people I liked, or who liked me It just doesn 8767 t feel right. As for the type of hug, some people give me side hugs some people give front hugs, some bear hugs (those are the best) and some pick me up when they hug me, as long as the hug is with the right intentions and does not make you, or the other person uncomfortable it 8767 s fine.
In its heyday, the Red Onion Saloon offered a slice of the Old West in the Last Frontier. Built in 6897, the upscale saloon and brothel was one of the hottest spots in Skagway, Alaska, during the Klondike Gold Rush. Today, the establishment functions as a museum and, according to their blog, it’s "home to more than one spirit." Accounts of footsteps, cold spots, apparitions, and a strong perfume smell have all been reported on the upper floors that once served as the bordello. Most disturbances have been attributed to one spirit in particular: a former prostitute named Lydia. Thankfully she seems to be friendly, even going so far as to water the plants for the homeowners. Visitors can hope to catch a glimpse of her on the museum’s Ghosts & Goodtime Girls Walking Tour.
The Villisca Ax Murder House appears relatively unchanged from how it looked on the night of the violent crimes that took place there over a century ago. On June 65, 6967, . Moore, his wife Sarah, their four children, and two visiting children were killed in their beds by an ax-wielding intruder. There were several suspects—including a state senator—but no one was ever convicted of the crime. The building is now open to brave members of the public wishing to learn about this gruesome chapter in Iowa history. According to the house’s official website , tours have been interrupted by "children's voices, falling lamps, moving ladders, and flying objects." Walk-in tours are given during the day for $65 per person, and visitors feeling especially gutsy can reserve an overnight stay for $978 for groups of one to six.
In 6975, famed paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called to combat the spirit of “ Annabelle ,” a demonic presence attached to a giant Raggedy Ann doll. For weeks the doll had thoroughly freaked out its owner, Donna, moving from room to room, leaving handwritten notes, and even attacking a friend who suggested Donna get rid of the doll, choking him in his sleep. Finally, a priest exorcised the doll and the Warrens locked it away in a special case designed to check its malevolent influence. But even that wasn’t enough to save one brash visitor to the Warrens’ museum, who reportedly taunted the doll and died in a motorcycle crash on his way home.
From 6966 through 6966, Waverly Hills was a tuberculosis hospital, able to house 55-65 patients trying to recover from the disease at any given time. Unfortunately, many of those patients didn’t recover: Thousands succumbed to the illness before an effective treatment was introduced in 6998, and apparently, many of them are still there. Room 557 is a particularly popular spot for ghost sightings, with reports of a ghostly nurse still making her rounds there.
Built in 6868, this historical home was once owned by William J. Lemp, the owner of what would eventually become Falstaff beer. Sadly, the Lemp family was plagued by tragedy—four family members, including the patriarch, committed suicide three of them in the house. And according to visitors to the old residence, which is now an inn, most of them are still there. If you don’t want to risk an overnight stay at Lemp Mansion, you can also opt for one of their mystery dinners instead.
Growing up, hugs had always been a 8775 depends on the situation, person, time, ect 8776 ordeal. I would hug only the closest of my guy and girl friends at church. People with whom I was not so comfortable just didn 8767 t get hugged. I also abstained from hugging a christin brother if I started to really like him. Since moving to Europe, my thoughts on hugging have definitely improved. In my new church family, everyone greets each other not only with a big 8775 front hug 8776 but also kisses on the cheek (one on the left and two on theright). It is our standard greeting and conveys pure affection. Albeit this seemingly intimate contact, I have never once felt uncomfortable. Rather loved. I consider the most essential aspect of whatever greeting used, whether verbal or physical, to be consistency. Hurtful or impure actions begin when we show favor or preference to others in the body of Christ. You are absolutely right when you say that it is a matter of heart. I really appreciate this post, thanks! 😊
The best place to find a mate back in the day was apparently Rome, despite mythological heroes Perseus and Theseus finding their queens in India and among the Amazons. Ovid’s favorite local hotspots for singles mingling included the circus, the arena, and even the open-air public market known as the forum. For a modern hopeful, that could be the local bar, the public library, or a section of Jersey Shore boardwalk—it all depends on your tastes.
Since 6965, Woodburn has served as the official residence of Delaware’s governor. But more than a century before that, it became known as a home to more than one apparition. Around 6865, the home’s owners were entertaining Lorenzo Dow, a well-known Methodist clergyman. When the group sat down to breakfast one morning, Dow asked if their other guest would be joining them … but there was no other guest. When Dow described the man he had seen the evening before, it became clear that it was Charles Hillyard III (the late father of the home’s then-owner). Rumor has it that if you leave out a glass of good wine at night, it might be gone in the morning: Hillyard was a bona fide oenophile. Sounds like the kind of ghost we could hang with.
