Love Knot Meaning

Ruth asks…

What does a fish hook on a baseball cap mean?

Ok I’m sure we’ve all seen someone with this. Wearing a baseball cap of some type with a fish hook bent around it’s bill. But what does it REALLY mean? I’ve heard many different things. I’ve heard it’s a racist/white supremacist thing, it’s a hoosier thing (which is where i live), or just that i means you like fishing. Heard a lot of others too but can’t think of them right now. But none of it really makes sense other than the fisherman one. Anyone know?
And no…this was around WAY before Larry the cable guy. So I KNOW that’s not it.

LoveKnots answers:

I actually have that “Git R Done” orange/ camo hat with the gold fake fishing hook, to put on the bill. I just hate to wear it in general, as it DOES make me look like a redneck. Usually I could care less what people think about me, but Hunter Orange is just not my color.

I too have heard about some racist symbolism, but no one can ever back it up with factual/ conclusive data. (Although I imagine most that wear it have no idea what “factual” and “conclusive” mean, but they can tell you how to gut a deer.) :) LOL! Maybe it has to do with the “Hangman’s Knot” some use to tie their line to big hooks. I dunno…I personally tend to use Palomars.

I love fishing, but just can’t stand that Larry the Cable Guy hat. Everyone already knows I love to fish, so I don’t need to wear the fake hook on the bill, to stir up any controversy.

Besides, my latest hat is HD Realtree camo, from Gander Mountain, and has 2 bright white LED’s built into the bill for hands free light in the dark…Saweeet! :) Did I say I wasn’t a redneck??? LOL!

I too am a Hoosier and a fisherman. Nice to meet you!

P.S. I have no issue with any race, just ignorant, arrogant, closed minded people.

Jenny asks…

What does my dream mean?

The father of my sona nd I had broken up about two months ago but let me tell you, you wouldnt ever guess that seesings how we spend alt of time with each other and everything well recently I had a dream that I was just sitting down and just chillin and I had my hands on my stomach and I felt a baby kick and I looked at my stomcah and looked at my sons father and said well it looks like we are pregnant again and he was so happy. What the hell does this mean also I was wearing the same outfit I am now that I did in my dream. Please someone help me figure this out. I cant get pregnant I have had my implanon for almost 3 years and I cant have anymore kids because the preeclampsia.

LoveKnots answers:

You are concerned that your ex is not attached to your son as much as he should be. You are concerned he wants to be your lover but not the father. You are the same as you were (the outfit) when you first got married. So he should love you and want to be a part of your family. You want him to return. Not just for the… You know…. But to be a full time father. Put it to him. No more freebies. Tie the knot or in your mind take responsibility, carry some of the load and worry, not just play time.

Susan asks…

Tone of “On Donne’s Poems” by Coleridge?

With Donne, whose muse on dromedary trots,
Wreathe iron pokers into true-love knots;
Rhyme’s sturdy cripple, fancy’s maze and clue,
Wit’s forge and fire-blast, meaning‘s press and screw.

I know the tone is negative towards Donne, but what would be the best word to describe it?
Thanks for the help(:

LoveKnots answers:

S. T. Coleridge: “On Donne’s Poetry”
If one sometimes finds Donne’s meter stilted or his rhymes forced, it may be of some comfort to read Coleridge’s funny but rather disparaging quatrain on the poet. Coleridge nonetheless did much to repopularize Donne’s poetry in the nineteenth century.

On Donne’s Poetry by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

With Donne, whose muse on dromedary trots,
Wreathe iron pokers into true-love knots;
Rhyme’s sturdy cripple, fancy’s maze and clue,
Wit’s forge and fire-blast, meaning’s press and screw.

Notes
1] An instance of Coleridge’s habit of annotating books, this quatrain was first printed in his Literary Remains (1836) from a note on Alexander Chalmers’ Works of the English Poets (21 volumes, 1810), V. Coleridge and Charles Lamb were largely responsible for reviving an interest in Donne in the nineteenth century.

Critical Reception
The history of Donne’s reputation is one of the most remarkable of any major writer in English; no other poet currently so admired has fallen from favor for so long and been so condemned as inept and crude. In the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, Donne’s unpublished poetry was highly prized within his small literary circle.

Mary asks…

What does it mean to be a man?

To you, what should a man be and do? As a man should they protect and honour and help other men do the same? Should every man get into a fight once in their life? In what ways should a man be involved with his children… just the discipline? How should a man treat his wife? What age should a man take on these responsibilities?

LoveKnots answers:

HOPEFULLY YOU’LL FIGURE THIS OUT. I haven’t yet, and I’m 30 years old. I’m an intellectual guy, I have a son who’ll be 11 in July, I live alone, I can field strip anything you throw at me and have it ready to fire in 2 1/2 minutes, I play drums and I’m damn fine at it (big deal), I love, I live, but I’m lost. I do not know what it means to be a man. And I am 30 years old. Spend 4 nights at the gym. Ripped all to hell, yet in my heart I do knot know the answer to this question. Let me know if you figure it out -john in Iowa (hopefully back in Oregon again ASAP)

Ken asks…

Growing my hair for locks of love fast?

I decided today I am going to grow my hair for locks of love. It’s already ten inches, but my mom doesn’t want my hair too short…so I have to grow an extra ten inches. She told me it will take two years. How can I make my hair grow faster? I have bi racial hair (a mix of black and white) and I get it washed and blown every Sunday. It’s naturally curly too. What else can I do to make it grow?

LoveKnots answers:

Hi :) , im the same race as you too what i do is look on youtube and type in ‘how to grow natural curly hair’ and you’ll see loads of mixed people showing you tutorials on how to help grow your hair faster.My hairs 12 inches when its straight but when my hairs naturally curly it shrinks but my curls are very loose like 3c and also i use to use a denmen brush to get the knots out and define my curls until i noticed it made my curls different and shrunk my hair real bad so dont use that.Plus another thing thats meant to helpy our hair grow quicker is if you tip your head forward and let the blood feed your hair focials and then massage your head to stimulate this is food to your hair

Mandy asks…

What do you think? Am I in love?

Im head over heels. I’m head over heels. I’m in trouble; I’m an addict. I’m addicted to this girl. She’s got my heart tied in a knot, and my stomach in a whirl. But even worse I can’t stop calling her, she’s all I want, and more. I mean damn, what’s not to adore? Ever since I saw her I knew there was something. Over the past seven months i’ve adapted this sort of attraction to girls, and she is my main attraction. Also, over that period of time, we have become the best of friends. I trust her with everything. When I’m not with her, i’m just waiting to be with her. I would be there for her every time she falls. I would hug her whenever I see a glimse of sadness within her eyes. I want to kiss her. I want to be with her. She knew I was hiding a secret (she didn’t know I was bisexual), and the first time, I lied. She seemed to be drifting away from me, so I told her my secret (in a fashionable manner), that I liked girls, too. Any time I feel like she is hesitant, I ask my mother for advice. My mother fully doesn’t support me on this bisexual path (I only want my mother, a therapist, and my best friend to know). She replies, “It’s because you told her you are bisexual”. She is always the first person I run to (yeah, I know), and that I can’t talk to any one now is killing me. I’m hopefully talking to my school councilor tomorrow (with my best friend/secret lover). My best friend said it wouldn’t change anything, and it brought us closer. I can’t stop thinking of her in more than a friend way, I love her. I think of her (fantasy land) as my secret girlfriend, and I think I shouldn’t do that because it is weird. I can’t stop, I can’t stop. I used to wake up with a smile on my face, now it’s out of place. I wish we could just sit down, one on one, and talk. Put our hearts where our mouths are. I have to wait at least two weeks to do that (if she even would). What do you think? Am I in love? How do I handle this? I don’t think I should tell her…. seems like the first shock would be enough, it hurts though.

LoveKnots answers:

It looks like…..Love <3

but if she doesn't go that way, I would think it would be better if you didn't tell her
I mean my friend who was a lesbian told me she liked me some time ago, and I told her I didn't go that way
after that she didn't speak to me anymore

so yeah it wouldn't do good to your relationship unless she is a very understanding person

Mark asks…

In Love With a Guy Who’s Taken.?

I’m in college with a guy and we’ve developed a really great friendship over time. For the past 6 months, I’ve known.
Two weeks ago, I finally told him I was in love with him. I mean I’m losing sleep, my stomach is in knots, I can’t think straight any more.
He admitted that he is in love with me too, but he’s been with this girl for 4 years. (and he lives with her and her family which complicates things even more.) He told me that he used to love her, but now it seems they are different people.
This has had him so upset that he felt sick, realizing he had a choice to make.
I’ve never fallen for anyone so hard in my life.

Here’s what he emailed me yesterday:

“I’m falling for you and fast, I never saw it coming. You have a personality that just takes hold of me and won’t let go and a beauty that make my heart melt. I started to have a crush on you about the middle of last quarter and kept growing. When I’m around you, I’m alive and its been a long time since I’ve smiled like this.”

LoveKnots answers:

That email you received from him is pretty cool….just look after yourself here tho….Just for your info;…I’ve really liked this guy for nearly 2 years who I later found out has a g/f & child…..we used to text & call each other, then I got sick of teasing myself & had to force myself to stop contacting him for my own sake….of course now he is the one who texts little “Hi” messages etc now & then!!…It’s hard coz I see him all the time, the feelings are mutual….we haven’t even kissed or anything…..I now know who his g/f is & she knows I was keen on him B4 I knew his status (I was honest with her coz thats just me & it’s all cool)…..she is a bit of a b!tch & doesn’t look after him like a g/f at home full time should (as far as I’m concerned anyhow)….so, now I just think….he’s seen what he could get & he is choosing to stay in an unhappy relationship…..these things haven’t been discussed between us….we both know we like each other but we have both accepted that its just not gonna happen…..so….I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing & maybe our time will come later without me having to get involved if they were to break up….I’ll just see what happens…..the attraction me & this guy have is so natural….it’s unreal & at times hard to handle…I don’t envy you at all, but I wish you all the best….& please put yourself first…

Sandy asks…

Why would your stomach feel funny when you think about someone?

Well when ever I think about a certain guy, or when I get a text, my stomach goes in knots… I don’t really know if it means im like in love with him, or just the fact that I think about him allot..Or something else??

LoveKnots answers:

Love its telling you that you need to stay with him or get with him.

Richard asks…

How to fix knots in hair?

Okay, so normally my hair is pretty healthy. I straighten it everyday, but only the little bits that are kind of flippy and i always ALWAYS use heat protectant. I was my hair everynight with a moisturizing shampoo and a strong conditioner meant for people who use heat daily on their hair. So lately (a few months now, maybe 3 or 4?) my hair starts off really flat and soft in the morning (it’s not dry at all, and it’s really thin so usually it just lies completely tame), but by 3:00 at the back of my head, like the nape of my neck theres this huge knot. Everyday! Doesn’t matter if it’s curled, if I didn’t straighten it, if it’s unwashed, etc! I tried getting my hair cut, because I thought maybe it was split ends getting tangled, but it didn’t do anything. It getting seriously annoying to have to bring a brush with me to school, and have to brush out my hair whenever I curl it. Does anybody know what I can do to fix this? Maybe shorter layers or something? Thanks so much!

LoveKnots answers:

Well I think the problem is your haircut. It may suprise you but sometimes your hair style can change that way your hair comes out… For example I have short layers in my hair and ever since I cut it this way my hair tends to flip out after I shower and with my old hair cut my hair was plain straight. So maybe its you haircut thats making it this way. I would say try short layers I have them and I love them! I hope this helps and good luck!
