Thank you everybody for the kind birthday wishes. My 50th was yesterday. We had a nice taco and margarita party at my place.
Yes, I will now be eligible for "senior" and "silver" promotions here in Vegas. I find it kind of insulting to be called a "senior" but I'll get over it for a cheap buffet.
I would say that you have to life your life as opposed to just passively watching it slip by. The opposite of "take it day by day." Instead, have big goals and work hard to achieve them.

It's not always what you say, it's how you say it.
Body language, facial expressions, timing, flow. CONFIDENCE is a huge factor, but don't try to fake it because it comes off bad.

You need to be good at reading them, you should know within minutes if they are really interested or just being polite or whatever. There's sometimes subtle tells.
Wasting time on a potential awkward situation sucks, not to mention its a confidence killer.
I swear one of our members missed an obvious opportunity at monkey fest and didn't realize it. I have no doubt he could've gotten a date from an attractive girl.
Perhaps he's in the Miata club(-;
