Yes!



Of course, it is entirely possible. Except it never happens, a guy saying "I am tired" or "got a migraine"

It's always you, all about YOU

I wish it to be about OP questioning whether she should even want something that she doesn't have.

I thought this was covered in the first ten replies and from the look of it seems income tax declarations the more emotionally charged topic...
What you thought is inconsequential. What really matters is if you asked permission to change the subject.

And when you asked.

And how you asked.

Now you've gone and gotten us both in trouble. There I was, patiently waiting to be told what to say, then you come along.

Thanks. I'll never talk to you again.

@Musicchick: Is it ok that I wrote that, or should Treverus apologise, and if yes, to whom?

@Treverus: You go first, there may still be hope for you. I figure I'm a writeoff since I posted a Ms Piggy video. I might just as well take aresid out for dinner and drown myself.

Just knit a square before that. Thanks.

Eta - 2 actually (the new project will be 20x20 I think). And crochet a little animal for a daycare fundraising, yeah!

Well, I may never recover from the Miss Piggy video, but life is too short to hold grudges.

Re: the struggle of dating a Swiss German guy?

Well, while being stuck within interpreting "The Revised RTS/ITS under Article 9 of Regulation No. 648/2012" into IT speak today, this was a welcome relief.

Can you do Gene Kelly as well?

Well, in my experience this is the perfect experience of my Swiss German Guy.
(who I married and later separated due to various reasons).

There's no one book written on who you fall for, or how you handle any differences.
Swiss men are the same as any other nationalities - it's really up to you how you want to accept them.
