Ok, so I should have said comparing buying a diamond to dating a woman but I did not have room. My customers always tell me how confused they get looking for that perfect diamond and if they find it they are not 100% sure it is the right one. I know diamonds but get confuned with women so I have the same problem with them. I went shopping for a diamond and woman at the same time. The mall has a big selection of both and soon I found a good-looking G color (blonde with blue eyes) but how can I be sure it was not color treated. The diamond passed the loupe test but the hair and are those blue contacts. I know not to ask (made that mistake before! ) Ok, so I am not looking for a perfect stone or woman, a little color enhancement is fine and can be done in a few months if any touch-ups are required. Now the age, how old is that certificate. Easy it has a date listed on top. As for her, could be a young looking 39 or a somewhat older looking 30ÖI know I canít ask (made that mistake before also!). Well she seems nice and I am not hung up on age. Now comes the dinner and they bring a glass of water and wine. That little rock sure does shine fresh out of the ultrasonic cleaner and at least my date drank from the glass and not from the bottle (please donít ask) Now off comes the coat and OH MY GOSH! those things look
ďFilledĒ my little diamond is fracture filled but that was disclosed up front and do I dare ask about her, filling (made that mistake before and still have marks from the results, OUCH ) OK, it could be size enhancing illusion setting (from Victoria secrets) but I cant get close enough to tell. At least with my diamond I have a loupe to see all the little details. OK dinner went well (this was good compared to other dates) and we go to a little club with black lights. My diamond shines a pretty blue under the light but as my girl ask if the future wife of a jeweler gets a big stone I tell her I prefer the artistic design and detail of a hand made mounting without a center stone. Soon her ďREDĒ fluorescence starts to glow. Now she wants a financial statement and my credit card reads, ďDeclinedĒ. Lucky I did not put a deposit down on that one. Time to go to a new store and look for a better stone. Maybe I should try a coffee shop or better yet the bookstore. Or should I find a local female GG who is single and would better understand this dating dilemma?

Yes my mind is going in and out of reality as clients who have looked all year long call and are shocked to find out we are taking orders for February 2003. Why canít you make and ship the ring of my dreams for a December wedding date. Or they call and say that size 9 I ordered should have been a 6, hope itís not too late as FedEX leaves the building with the( diamond eternity band)next day package.

Dear 210,

Yup; I've had a day or two like this in my life...

Hope you're feeling better now.

Your post makes me wonder...how do you male jewellers know that a woman really likes you for you or for the jewels that you can provide?

I think the US dating etiquette would make it harder to find out in the man usually pays for meals etc...whereas here in the UK women normally pay their own way.

Top 10 hints you are being usedÖwhen a woman sayís
1. Itís $350.00 an hour, take it or leave it
2. Next time take me someplace more expensive, I am worth it.
3. Your Mercedes is 3 years old, can you get a new one before we go out again.
4. Child support, canít you just stop paying.
5. A room at the Luxor, well itís the Bellagio or I wonít go.
6. I need a new dress for the charity function, can you get me one.
7. My last boyfriend had front row season tickets, why donít you.
8. I want at least a 3.00ct when I get married
9. Itís OK you went out with that other girl, just donít spend much on her.
10. I really need a new car but just canít find a job I like.

Actually heard #2, 3,4,5,6,8 but if she would just say # 9 I may stay around!

You've got to be kidding - you've really heard women say those things? You really are going out with the WRONG sort of woman. You should be looking for a real 'lady' and trust me, they do exist.

Yes, no. 3,4,6 and 8 were from my dates( over about 10 year time period ) the others from a friend in the business.We compared notes awhile back. He is a few years older, also not married.
Bagpuss, maybe I should move....know of any cheap apartments.

Jeff,

That actually made this bad day at work bright and made me laugh. You are very funny.

As for your experience with "diamonds" /women.... That is unfortunate. I guess women like myself are indeed rare after all.

I do admit to being color enhanced (hair) , but it is so mild that I always forget.

Hazel eyes but that doesn't matter because this "diamond" is already spoken for.

Several of my male friends (in their 30s) have had similar dating trials as yourself. Even woman who on the date tell them, btw I am married. What is up with that!!!

So he bought her dinner and now never will see her again. As he is a stand up guy.

Women are strange.

If you ever feel like emigrating to the UK, I'm sure we could fix you up - with both the apartment and the lady!
