Scary Story Time

Posted By Elite Lady Cathleen on Oct 22, 2011 at 6:33PM

We all have that spooky house on the block that urban legend that won't just go away. So I thought being that we are getting close to Halloween I would share my most recent scary encounter.
My friend Casey has always had housing included in job. Because she works in the horse industry it is customary for her to accommodated housing due to her being on call 24 hours. This has lead to her living in some pretty spooky places. With terrible sometimes tragic events that took place on the properties years ago, in some cases the atrocities began over 100 years ago.
It began about two years ago when she took a new job in Bedford, NY. After her first week of work the stable manager approached Casey and told her about the “Dark Shadow Man”, who can be seen looking out the top window of the vacant farm house directly looking at her studio on the farm. Her manager told her the gruesome history of the property; how it started as a working farm and with the first family a deadly accident took the life of a little boy working. He was torn to pieces by a manure spreader. Then she was told how the farm was a slaughter house for horses sometime after the farming days were over. And even more the property is located in early colonial territory so there are things that make noise in the night.
The reason Casey’s boss was sharing the haunted history was not to scare or intimate her but to let her know that a Psychic had come early that day and found that the spirits were content with Casey and therefore would bother her. Well over the next several months as summer turned to fall and fall turned to winter Casey spent more and more days all alone on the farm. Less and less clients showed up as it got colder to check on their horses. So Casey would have hours sometimes days alone taking care of the stables and horses. This is when she began experiencing strange things while in the barn. For instance, walking out to the stable at night to give the evening meal, she would feel as though someone was watching her from across the barn. On occasion Casey’s dog’s hair would stand up and would bark at nothing looking in the direction from which Casey thought she might have seen something.
Large heavy hooks that hang from the ceiling to place saddles and other horse equipment would be swinging upon returning to the office. When they were perfectly still just a moment before. Stable doors would slam shut only to know that all the horses were out in the field and no one else was on the property. Twice while my friend lived at this apartment she woke up to feeling as thou someone forcefully grabbed her shoulder and flipped her from her side onto her back.
On Halloween 2009, after returning home from the city, Casey and I fell asleep. She was asleep in her bed and I was less than two feet away sleeping on the couch with my dog. We were only asleep for a little while when I abruptly woke up. Both my door and I were drawn to the front door. It sounded as thou someone was walking up the front steps. Then even though the door did not open it sounded as if it had. And the footsteps continued to walk in. It walked through the kitchen towards our room, my eyes and head as well as my dogs’ followed the foot steps. We followed it as it appeared to walk along the back wall, and around to behind the t.v. and then turned to the wall I was sleeping on and came around the back. Knock Knock!!!! Once it sounded and felt as thou it was right behind my head, there were two extremely loud knocks. Me and my dog both jumped. And then there was silence, I couldn’t sleep the rest of the night. I waited until 5:00am came and I got up and got my things and went home.
If you have ever had the begeesues scared out of you I would love to hear it.

Looking to make friends after 25

Posted By Elite Lady Cathleen on Oct 19, 2011 at 10:37AM

 

Hi Ladies, recently I relocated from NY to So Cal and I found it hard to make new girlfriends. So instead of just sitting home by myslef I started my own Meetup group.

My group is designed for women from 25 to 35 who live in Orange County California. The goal of this group is to integrate our social network friends online into our real lives offline. We encourage all Ladies of our group to mingle as much online to get out socializing.

The difference between O.C.’s Elite Lady and other women’s groups is simple. Our mission is to help our members maximize their own strengths and talents while offering a sisterhood that is meaningful, genuine and fun. Our sisterhood grows through our participation in social activities on and offline

Just because someone requests to be your “friend” online doesn’t make them a true friend offline. We believe you should get to know the real friends in your life by spending time with them in person. And remember true friendships take time to cultivate and require care, honesty and respect.

If this sounds like the type of group you would like to be a part of we would love to have you. Women with any relationship status and children are welcome. This group is for women who want to meet new friends and have fun!

If your interested in checking it out and you live in the area you can check us out on Meetup or on Facebook.

7 Things Men Find Really Romantic

Posted By Princess_Mimi on Feb 9, 2009 at 2:39AM

OMG, I was browsing around Yahoo and found this great article about things guys like to hear from girls.
They convince me, I've used some of these tips myself in the past!
Just in time for Valentine's Day, how great is that?

So for anyone that needs a little help to sweep your guy off their feet, :rotfl: , read this:



Men aren't supposed to like romance, right?

Well, that's the theory, anyway. In practice, men may not always like to call it romance, but we feel the same yearning to connect that you do, to give and receive physical expressions of love and to continue the rituals of courtship. In short, we want to romance you... and we secretly want you to romance us. The flowery stuff, the roses, and candlelight, just isn't a guy thing. So skip the sweet little trappings and go for what's guaranteed to work.




#1. Dress Up for Him
"Consider dressing for his tastes and not just yours once in a while," says Barbara De Angelis, Ph.D., author of "Secrets About Men Every Woman Should Know." "Take him shopping and have him choose outfits he would like to see you in."
Remember, you're doing this for him, not for you. And, as psychologist Ronald Goldstein, Ph.D., a marriage counselor in Newtown, Pennsylvania, explains: "Women should keep in mind that men are visually oriented." Trust me, men find it very romantic when you step wholeheartedly into our debauched little fantasy worlds. If we're hard-wired to be turned on by visual cues, why not indulge us -- and use it to your advantage?




#2. Initiate Physical Affection
Whether you're playing footsie under the table or placing a hand on our shoulders while scooting behind our chairs, men find the touch of the woman they love unbelievably reassuring. In our treasured nonverbal language, it translates as: "I accept you... I love you... We're a team."





#3. Give Him a Night Out with the Boys -- No Strings Attached

It may seem odd to you that a romantic gesture might not involve you at all. But dogs run with dogs, wolves run with wolves, and every so often, guys just have to break away and run with the guys (drooling and howling optional).





#4. Tell Him What a Big, Strong Guy He Is
We men are famously incompetent at expressing ourselves verbally... but that doesn't mean we don't appreciate hearing a little praise now and then. In particular, we draw a lot of our identity from our maleness. Nurturing our big-ape fantasies -- me Tarzan, you Jane -- lets us know you value us as males, which is somehow important to the continued production of testosterone.
A quick insight into men: We all want to be heroes. Remembering to compliment your mate on being a great partner isn't always easy in the middle of a busy day, but it's a quick shortcut to making him feel wanted, needed, and loved, which is of course the ultimate point of any romantic gesture. And this positive reinforcement of your mate's good behavior will yield big dividends later, as he subconsciously tries to live up to your glowing appraisal.





#5. Score Him a Pair of Tickets to the Big Game
Which would you rather receive from your mate: a weekend at a spa or a new set of cookware? The spa is by far the more romantic gift, if only because he doesn't stand to gain anything from it. Gifts that don't benefit the giver are somehow purer because they demonstrate you care only about making your partner happy. So when you're thinking about gifts, try not to think about what you'd like to get him, but what he'd like to receive.





#6. Show Interest in His Outside Life
We live in a fast-paced world, and we all know it's easy enough to get wrapped up in our own routines. But finding ways to let a man know you care about all aspects of his life, not just the parts he shares with you, is a great way to show you love the whole man. Shoot him a few well-directed questions about work to help him unwind, surprise him with a book relating to a hobby, track down a website that deals with some problem he's having -- all are touching gestures I guarantee will be well received.





#7. Tell Him a Secret
Men want to be soul mates, too. Telling him a secret -- symbolically letting him deeper inside you -- demonstrates total trust in him and faith in your relationship. Because you're making yourself vulnerable, it's an incredible bonding experience. What works just as well: Encourage him to tell you a secret or two. And don't laugh.
