Dating tip basics

I have always greeted the phrase "nice guys finish last" with major eye-rolls and sighs of annoyance. Nice guys are smart and genuine; they are the guys who still use their manners, who open doors, make sure you get home safely, respond to texts and calls, and actually listen to what a girl is saying versus mapping out how soon he can sleep with her. I know a ton of nice guys that are in relationships, and to be honest, I don't think they ALWAYS finish last.They have plenty to offer in a relationship, and any girl can see and recognize that.

This cycle of dating is completely backwards and makes no sense. I am afraid I'm going to do something to him to ruin him. I know this is totally unfair, and hell, I've even had guys experience this same fear with me. If I go on ONE date with a nice guy, I feel as though our future may as well already be set in stone.Your veterinarian will be your best source for advice about your pet's health.They know your pet, what treatments have been tried in the past, what was found on examination, and your pet's other medical problems. Educate yourself about your pet's disease and don't be afraid to ask questions.At the end of the day, we're all stuck in this dating mess just trying to find a good fit.That right fit will happen for nice and not-so-nice guys and girls all the same.However, it wasn't until a month or so ago, when my dear friend tried to set me up with a classic "nice guy," that I started to see the truth in this statement.

My immediate reaction on hearing the background info on this guy was, "Ohhh, he seems too nice for me." I told my friend I'd have to pass for now, and I never really thought of why I was so quick to pass on this guy. Of ALL the men I've let into my life, only two of them were actually nice guys. I enjoyed my time with them for a little bit, and then dumped them out of the blue.

Take it from someone who has suffered the pain of dumping two of them: that sh*t is hard.

You end up hating yourself big time when you dump a nice guy.

A few breeds have proven hereditary epilepsy, while in most it is just a strong suspicion.

One of the goals of the Canine Epilepsy Project is to identify genes responsible for epilepsy in dogs.

The good guys don't come around often, and you know that. I want a little edge, so I would need a guy who is nice and edgy. Perhaps this one will change in a year or so, but for now, the nice guys seem predictable to me, and I'm just not ready to commit to predictable yet.
