Great article! So true I had to share...

The 9 Most Annoying Things To Say To A Single Person

"The good thing about being single is that people are usually pretty willing to talk about your romantic life, because, let’s face it, it’s probably more entertaining than that of your seriously coupled-up friends.
The bad news? Sometimes, people will want to talk about your love life regardless of whether or not you’re in the mood to talk about it. And they will have opinions. And questions. And if you’re single for long enough, a lot of these are gonna start sounding the same…"  
So I'm dying to know — what is the worst thing someone has ever said to you? One of my personal favorites involved my Grandpa. I was a 21 year old college student and I was hosting a bbq at my grandparents house. My Grandpa is one smooth guy and in his day he was quite a lady killer. So my lady-killing Grandpa went up to my roommate and asked her in a rather sly covert way, "Will you teach Liz how to flirt?" I was flattered by the vote of confidence. I don't think I ever got any flirting lessons out of that bbq. Maybe my roommate should have taken him seriously and viewed me as a worthwhile service project. Flirting lessons as a community service — I like this idea!

Joke of the day

An elderly woman died last month. Having never married, she requested no male pallbearers. In her handwritten instructions for her memorial service, she wrote, "They wouldn't take me out while I was alive, I don't want them to take me out when I'm dead."

Blind Date Etiquette

I recently signed on to be the Salt Lake City Dating Advice Examiner for I know, I know, the idea of me giving dating advice is kind of comical.

Check out my first article and let me know what you think. If all goes well I will write one or two articles a week.

Thank You Love Notes

I’m currently taking a professional interviewing class. The professor is terrifying! It’s possible that more than one student went home and cried after our first day of class. Imagine one of the most intense people you know and then multiple by 10 and you will have my professor.

On the second day of class we were talking about sending a thank you note after a job interview. One of my classmates thought that thank you notes were old fashioned and that if anything was necessary a thank you email would suffice. The professor and the rest of the class tried to convince our classmate that everyone liked thank you notes. My classmate wouldn’t buy it; he was convinced that thank you cards and mail in general had gone the way of the dinosaur.

Dumbfounded, the professor asked “Haven’t you ever sent a thank you note to a girl?” The professor then went on to reveal one of the most romantic things I have ever heard. Every Thanksgiving this terrifying man writes his wife a thank you note. He doesn’t just buy a Hallmark Card and call it good. Oh no! This man, who strikes fear into the hearts of dozens of students, buys the largest jumbo card he can find and then writes in tiny print all of the things he is thankful for about his wife. He fills the card with around 200 things. He has been doing this for years now. The best part of all of this is that he doesn’t reuse anything from one year to the next. A true romantic would never recycle thank yous! My professor keeps a list all year long so that he can write a very specific and loving thank you card.

Is this the cutest thing you have ever heard or what?!?! All I can say is where, do I sign up for thank you card writing husband?
