"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

+1, congrats on a good date and a purple dress, HS

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
Always a dress on a first date, even in winter (tights!) unless you are going hiking or something. But make it a simple dress, form fitting or follows the lines of the body, but not skimpy.
A bit of make up. Most of the time when a guy says he doesn’t like when a woman wears make up what he means is he doesn’t like it when he can TELL that she is wearing make up.
Mid height heels. I’m shortish and I wearing heels makes me feel sexy and confidant. But I want to be comfortable as well. Plus really high heels may set off a "high maintenance" alarm. (I’ve worn flats on dates as well, particularly flat riding boots in winter weather)
Hair definitely down. Pretty much no exceptions.
No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.
Diene, lets have a girl-date because that Civil War argument is one that I would LOVE to hash out over several glasses of wine. Fascinating.
I had actually seen the Ken burns doc before, but last year I found myself thinking a lot about the Civil War and wondering a) how Lincoln pulled off selling that war (unfortunately, I don't think "saving an indentured race" would really have been enough in that much less enlightened age), and b) how Lincoln managed to get around the Constitutional issues of such a war. So I rewatched the documentary and read Team of Rivals, and I still don't have very good answers to those questions, but I sure learned a hell of a lot more than I knew before.
Y'ALL. Guy wants to go on a second date, tonight. This time I'm thinking I'll go a little more casual... maybe leggings, boots, and a flowy top? I'm not accustomed to even wanting a second date, let alone going on one, so I have even less of an idea what to wear.
Good luck on the second date!!! Eek!!
