That’s the first thing so many reviewers note about these pants in their testimonials, so it was only fair to share with the class.Shoppers also love the fit of these pants. They sit right at the hips and have an adjustable drawstring in the waistband, which is likely one of the reasons these have been suitable for over 20,000 proud owners.

Pros and Cons of Sowing Your Wild Oats.

first_imgLifestyleRelationships Pros and Cons of Sowing Your Wild Oats. by: – June 30, 2011 Share Share Share Tweetcenter_img 111 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! by Rich Santos, Marie ClaireA friend of mine recently ended a relationship and now claims he can’t wait to “sow his wild oats.” I’m wondering how that experience could be as rewarding as growing close to someone and falling in love.So, I weighed the pros and cons:CONSIt’s Not That Easy To DoI strike out just as often when I’m just looking to hook up as I do when I’m looking for a girlfriend. It’s depressing because I set goals (get laid by as many women as possible) and don’t meet those goals. It’s like trying to figure out nuclear fusion: It would be awesome if I could do it, but I’m not capable.You Might Miss a Better OpportunityIf you’re determined to sow your wild oats, you might just let that special person pass you by if they come along at the wrong time.It’s EmptyThere are times when people want fun, void of emotion. But isn’t an emotional connection more fulfilling? After you sow enough wild oats, you might reflect back and find that your experiences haven’t amounted to anything outside of temporary exhilaration.It’s DangerousYou all know I have an acute fear of every STD in the book… Not to mention unintended pregnancy. Is it worth the risk?It Makes You Feel CheapAs you go from person to person, the spontaneity and fun may turn into shame. Many people who set out to sew their wild oats accept that they are going to be compromising traditional morals. But, after a while, it’s not uncommon to feel bad about yourself if you’re stringing together flings.PROSIt Convinces You That You’re “Ready”People seem more prone to get into relationships once they’ve purged the “bad side” from their systems.It Eliminates RegretOne common male regret is not playing the field enough before settling down. If that regret follows you into a marriage, it can get dangerous.I’ve come to the conclusion that sowing your wild oats is overrated. People who need to do it are most likely not “relationship”-oriented. It’s all relative — some might say that my two one-night stands qualify as “wild oats.” I think that it takes a lot more than that, but then again I’m conservative.What do you think are the pros and cons of this kind of behavior? Do you believe it’s necessary to go through this phase before you can get into a relationship?last_img read more
