It's quite simple, Schick, Bic, or Gillette will not get one more dime on my shaved face. The cost of the multi-bladed razors are incredibly inflated. I saw this at Walmart the Van Der Hagen Traditional Safety Razor itself (with 5 blades) was $17.58 and I got 8 replacement blades for...$2.88 (the box said it contained 5, but it came with 8) I thought 5 for $2.88 was a good deal. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. That's $.36 a blade, wow. I notice no difference when shaving, between the multi bladed razors(I was using the Bic 3 razor system) and this single bladed razor. Now I just need to convince the ladies of the household to adopt this wonderful classic razor. Not mine of course, their own...
We will see.
Thanks for checking out this PPT and have a blessed week.

I've had this post in my mind for some time now. In fact, it started out as an overall "what not to do" post based on my experience with online dating. However, it's come down to this one very specific piece of advice because this is probably my biggest pet peeve. Maybe it's just me. Maybe it doesn't really bother other women. Though my friends tell me it's annoying to them, as well. So it's a thing for at least a few of us. I call it the Hi Phenomenon because I see it so often on the dating sites.
It may seem that I'm being picky or outrageous in expecting a man not to say hello when he reaches out to a woman. That's not what we're talking about here. I'm referring to the messages that say simply, "Hi." That's it. Just, "Hi." Even the ones that say, "Hi. How are you?" confound me. What am I supposed to do with that? There are so many reasons why the Hi Phenomenon is such a turnoff for me.
It Tells Me Nothing
First and foremost, saying hello tells me nothing about you. Yes, of course I can look at your profile, but only if something compels me to believe I may be interested in getting to know you. A simple, "Hi" is not compelling. At all. However, a nice note telling me something about you and why you chose to get in touch with me would be great. That's all I'm asking for, and I don't think it's that much of an ask.
I Don't Have Time for This
Seriously. No one has time for the Hi Phenomenon. If you write, "Hi,' what am I supposed to write back? Please don't think we're going to go back and forth with one word exchanges. That is not going to happen. Ever. We're all busy people. If you have time for this type of single word, shallow interaction, I probably don't have time for you. As a single mom, my dating time is limited. I want to know that the person I'm choosing to spend that time with has more to say than just, "Hi."
Frankly, it really is just lazy for you to send me this one word. I realize that the men on dating sites send out more messages on average than the women do and that their odds of hearing back are not often that high. So I get that you may not want to compose a lengthy note when it's likely you may never hear back from a woman. I get it. I do. Think about it from our perspective. Don't you think you'd increase your chances of a reply if you give a little bit of yourself in that first message?
Which brings me to my next point. If all you have to say is, "Hi," I'm going to think there's not a lot going on in that pretty little head of yours. I want depth of character, someone who has a lot to say, a man with personality. "Hi" conveys none of that. It makes me think you have nothing to offer. You know what else? It makes me think you're going to expect me to do all the work. You get off saying just one word, and I'm expected to send a reply and actually carry the conversation. No thank you. I want to invest my time in someone who shows me right off the bat that he'll take some time to get to know me, not expect me to put forth all the effort.
So there you have it. Some reasons why it's not a good idea to contact a woman on a dating site with the tired, boring, lazy "Hi" message. I hope this has been helpful. It certainly was therapeutic for me. In fact, I think I'll pass it along to the five Hi Guys I got messages from today alone. Imagine how many I've gotten in the past year, and perhaps, you'll have an even better understanding of why I hate the Hi Phenomenon. Don't say, "Hi."
