HECK YAH!

Make your life easy... find out if she think's it's cool or not right off the bat... or it'll never work. :p Otherwise she'll just become jealous of the amount of time you lavish on them, which will manifest itself as resistance to spending money on them...lol

Plus women worth having appreciate a man who can nurture something besides themselves. ;)

Silly Reddog... she will know that you are a wanna be as you are keeping your "bonsai" inside. If it is on your nightstand you likely just bought it at Wal-mart complete with glued on rocks.

No, if she wanted a guy that is a shallow phony, she could find that anywhere.


So yes show her your bonsai

Understanding the term "Bonsai Widow" should be part of the pre-screening process.

If I ever get a first date, I'll let you know.


PS I'm not likely to get a first date anytime soon since I've been married 30 years.

Hey Reddog, NEVER by the nightstand!

Hahaa if you have her showing up at your house on the first date, I would think all the rules and limitation's are already out the window...

She's obviously not the kind of person to be judgemental...

My Wife and I had our first date at my house because I didn't have a sitter for my son and daughter. Of course they showed her my tree's and told her all about my obsession. I cringed a couple of times. But she's still with me 4 years later and my collection has grown in size and most importantly quality. I have to thank the first date for that...
