Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Hey T., that name thing is a nice touch too. Correct eye behavior is a basic requirement. No manners, no nothing. No way.

Good manners in men always a plus. But not so stuffy he gets all awkward when you open your own door, and can't drink beer from the can.

You forgot the upcoming fragrance for the 21st Century woman: Scotty! (She's Breaking Up, Captain...) It's the perfect gift for the newly single gal...   :smileywink:

 Oh no! Too much potential for mischief. Maybe she really just likes the smell but she's with someone. She wears it; he leans in for a kiss..."Hey! What's THAT supposed to mean?!"
 
Or she's miffed. She's with him but when he walks in she doesn't look up. She's wearing the Scotty. He rushes to gather his socks off the living room carpet and place them in the laundry hamper. Next day she's wearing Happy.

You know, it could work. If it smells nice, and gives a guy a confident, grounded sort of feeling (like having the home team advantage), women are going to pick up on that without realizing the secret (that he brought part of his favorite show with him into this bar).

 

He'll feel grounded and confident, smell nice, and yet he won't smell like any of the past 20 guys that came up to talk to her ... What is different about this guy? I can't put my finger on it. Hmm. He smells nice too.

 

Maybe she'll decide that different is good. Actually, being subtly different (without being too scary or overwhelmingly different) is always an advantage.  Allows her to imagine that you could potentially be the best of what is known, as well as the best of what is unknown.

 

Oh, wait! I wasn't supposed to tell you! 


(chuckle) Hey guys back when I was looking. 3 things got you a piece of my time. Looking mostly at least the direction of my face while talking to me (extra points for meeting my eyes). Starting with you name and not a line. And smelling nice but not overwhelming.

 

Smelling subtlely different just might be the advantage.


Nice. Information that would have been more helpful like 18 or 19 years ago. I had rely on trickery to snag my wife (my looks weren't gonna get it done!). I'm still concerned she'll figure out I don't really have a terminal disease. To think I could have looked her in the face and worn Tiberius, and not have to fake a deadly malady?! Geez! Thanks, Ladies.

I am full of information ... and ... other things. All you have to do is ask the right questions.

You really think so? Does that mean I can quit putting that foaming hand soap in my mouth and rolling around the floor every so often? I don't mind the vanilla flavored ones but the lavender....yech!

(has to stop rooling on the floor laughing) oh yes I say so. She loves you without a doubt. One because she's never minded the loss of her good soaps. (chuckle)

Two because she deals with the "afterness" of you eating soap.

Three because she has yet to tell you "to come off it already. I know!"
