One Decision Can Change the Course of the Rest of Your Life

5 years ago today my life was very different. I was a young, divorced, single mom, who had recently left her long time job in banking to go to the University of Colorado full-time to pursue my dreams of becoming a lawyer. I had been dating on and off for the past 6 months but nothing really materialized.

I went on at the urging of one of my best girl friends, one of her friends met her husband through a similar site and she thought it was worth a try. After 3 weeks on the site I started talking to a young, cute, single dad who lived about 50 miles from me. After emailing back and forth and several long phone conversations, he asked me on a date.

I was nervous to go meet someone in person I had only talked with online but I had a good feeling about him. He seemed so sweet and we had talked on the phone for hours. We decided to meet at Starbucks. He didn't have a cell phone so we set a meeting time at a Starbucks about halfway between both our houses. I showed up and waited and waited and waited and then checked my phone only to realize I had a voicemail from him saying he was at Starbucks and was wondering if he was at the right one. I didn't even realize there were two in the area! I quickly called my sister (who lived in the area) and got directions to the other Starbucks. Luckily I made it to the other Starbucks before he decided he had been stood up.

And the rest is history...

There are those who say a shirt should always be tucked in; I wonТt go that far as I have seen (and made) shirts that look very stylish worn un-tucked.а The key is making sure the length of the shirt and height of jeans/shorts overlap by the right amount. аAim for a 2 to 4 inch overlap depending on your size and the type of shirt; give T-shirts less overlap while button down short sleeves can have more (especially if it has a tail).а A general rule of thumb is if you are covering more than 50% of your backside the shirt is too long Ц the good news here is that shortening a shirt is fairly simple.а Finally note that the un-tucked style looks best on the younger man, especially when he is wearing jeans. Although you may think you are the exception (donТt we all), past middle age,d the un-tucked shirt begins to look unkempt.
