Kim shares her thoughts on Dwight (and what to do on a date).

on Nov 20, 20120

Being as close as we are, I feel it is my duty to give him sh-t on what he should have done differently if we were on a date (should I be so lucky):

- Order the wine. He passed the menu to me to order. Take charge!
- Ask your date if she's ready to order.
- Let her order first.
- Don't order your entree at the same time as your drinks. This will also help to pace the kitchen so they don't bring out your entree at the same time as your appetizer.

Yes, I offered to pay. I picked the restaurant and it was probably out of his price range at the time and was planning to anyway. Yes, he called me bootylicious. High praise that I thought was only meant for Beyonce. He may also have a little crush on me.
 
At this moment in time I was making a decision about what direction I wanted my life and career to go in. Did I want stability, a steady paycheck, a new car or a world of unknown with no income and high risk?
 
Dwight and I have what some might call a “When Harry Met Sally” relationship. Dwight grew up without a television and when someone recently asked how he felt about our “When Harry Met Sally” relationship, he responded he has never met Harry or Sally and dreams in SQL (a programming language). What's not to love?

Kim think of families think outside the box... I live in FL, I have children, and I'm married.. I work in finance, CFO for a non Profit organization. My husband is an aspiring law enforcement officer. We would love to relocate our family. I look everywhere for city data have 10 million screens up and am always researching and looking for any type of guidance.... To have an app that I could put in my profession my children's ages out interests things like that... To have suggestions as to where we would live most comfortably give me stats from school grades to salary ranges to homes for sale and job openings that'd be awesome... It could eventually allow moving companies and realtors to market... The possibilities are endless.... Anyway there is my dream start up idea.... Mommy of 4... Workaholic wife lol :) I think you're awesome... Beautiful driven and talented!!! Good luck to you!! :)

I appreciate your candor and your confidence. Life as a woman is not just about being married and having babies! You have inspired me and I only continue to watch the show because you're on it!

First of all.you weren't told they had to bring in a grey haired MAN,  he said grey haired CRO. YOU extrapolated that to infer it had to be a MAN, I guess because you buy this whole "war on women" nonsense.  Secondly, if you were capable of doing the deal yourself after two WHOLE YEARS (lmfao) of working there then why didn't you? Nothing interesting to see watching a bunch of kids who's inflated view of themselves is just boring.

I think you are a cool girl and a hard working person.  I can see that you will be very sucessful.  I also think that you are kind and sweet.  I think Dwight and you look cute together.  Both of you will be very success if you work together - build a company.  You have a lot of ideas and he is the one who is willing to implement and execute the ideas.

You are an amazing role model for women. I like the way you are able to keep your cool when someone is telling you something you don't like, I'm referring to the scene with your boss. Smart, beautiful, avoid girly drama..... The world is your taking! Those gray haired men need to take a back seat.

I love seeing both sides of you: the "girly" side and the "geeky" side. You have your head on straight and deserve all the success in the world.

kim, you're very bright and driven.  i hope your start-up dream comes to fruition soon.  you need to get some humility i think...you're too arrogant for your own good and turns people off.  i think you and dwight would be a hot couple.  he's such a techie...maybe if you combined your sales skills with his business model and yours too, you could launch two great new businesses!  the best to you!
