You know by now, I LOVE FOOD!
Max's Wine Dive is all the rave with their signature, award winning, Fried Chicken. So after hearing great stories and reading amazing reviews, I finally took myself over and sat at the bar....
The staff was very friendly and attentive. The wine selections are great, I had the house malbec, which I loved but, the food....well, the food was something to be less desired.
I went ahead and ordered the Pork Bell Grits, Watermelon Salad, and of course the Fried Chicken....
The salad was refreshing and I enjoyed the watermelons chunks. I am not much a fan of arugula, so this item was already 1 less vote.
The grits were AMAZING...fluffy and creamy! I loved the pork belly addition.
The fried chicken....heavy sighs...I had so much hope for you. You were supposed to live up to the standards that all my friends put you at. You even received an award for being the best! You were supposed to be seated on the highest pedestal but, instead, I didn't even want to finish you and I was left with utter disappointment. *Tears
The chicken could have had more flavor, instead it was bland with a memory of light spice. The collard greens...well, let's just say, I definitely make better greens.
Maybe they just had an off night because I was so shocked at the lack of pzazz in the food. I'll give them one more shot.
You cannot make a man want you. As much as you may like him and try to hide your "crazy" so he takes interest in you, you still CANNOT make him want you if he has no thoughts of wanting you or being serious with you.
When a man likes you, he will make the effort to tell you, show you, because again, he will be the one to pursue and court you.
BUT, ladies hear me out....we also need to identify the man that we may have our eyes on. Watch how he interacts with other women, are you just another face in the crowd or does he make a special effort to be different towards you? A man will not change just because you ask him to. If he has a lot of women lusting over him, that may not stop once you have him but, what should stop is how he addresses the other women. If you are in his consideration, he will make the right moves to accommodate your heart.
I have a male friend who I poke fun of because he seems to be the type that loves attention. I call him a hoe and a floozy all the time. But, in actuality, whatever he does on his own time is none of my business and he is a single man, so he can behave as single men may do. As far at the attention element, that is due to the of the type of business he is in, so his behavior towards women may be flirtatious or very friendly but, that is just how he engages with them. Aside from all of that, he's a good guy.
We cannot be naive about the attention we may receive or overthink his affections or lack there of. Keep in mind that men who are very driven and focused on their careers/success may not have eyes on any woman because he does not want to give the wrong impression when he knows he cannot offer a woman his full time or attention.
Another male friend of mine falls into this mold. I barley can get him on the phone because he is constantly traveling, in and out of meetings, making business deals, etc. And we've talked briefly about relationships and having someone to spend time with but, we are both in the same structure in life where we know we cannot fully offer ourselves to someone just yet...we still have some work to do.
All and all, Ladies, you should never have to chase a man. If he wants you, he'll come for you.
