Donald Trump is President. Now What?

donald trump

Donald Trump is President of the United States. I am numb. I am frightened. Here’s what I suggest we do at this difficult time…

I never write about politics. I don’t even like to talk about politics, especially when things get heated and polarized. It goes against my values to spew hateful venom about anyone. I’ve even lost a friendship because I refused to get into an argument against Obama. But this election changed everything. I started to pay closer attention to both candidates, what they said, what they’ve done in the past, crimes committed, lies, and corruption. And I made a conscious choice for who I wanted to run this country. I am proud to say that I voted for Hillary. I had faith in her leadership. And whether you voted for Trump or Clinton, you exercised your right as a citizen of this country to choose who you thought would best serve the USA.

And now, it’s the morning after the election, and Donald Trump is President of the United States. My Facebook newsfeed is filled with sadness, anger, and fear. I am numb. I am frightened of living in a country with this man as leader. He has exposed himself as a racist, misogynist, white supremacist, hateful intolerant man. Now what?

Dinner Date: When to Invite Him Over

dinner date

When’s the right time to invite a man over for a dinner date? This man invited himself over after the first date. Too soon?

One of my Facebook group members posted this question about when to invite a man over for a dinner date:

I had what I thought was a very nice first date tonight..lasted 3 hours and we talked easily about all kinds of subjects and laughed quite a bit. He said he’d like to see me again. When I got home he sent a very sweet email about all of the reasons he liked me.

I said I had a nice time too and then he sent me this: “I think you should invite me over for a nice home cooked meal in the not too distant future. Ball’s in your court…”.

Really? After a first date? We had talked about cooking, and he asked if I was a good cook. I said yes, but this seems a bit inappropriate to me after a first date. I responded that I wasn’t ready to invite him over my house yet and I needed to get to know him better and feel more comfortable. Thoughts?
