City & State or ZIP

That’s not my name

Today’s post is courtesy of “Brian”, a 29 year old man from Smyrna. Brian wanted to offer his perspective  after a recent experience he had with a young lady he was seeing:

I have been going out with someone for a couple of months. A couple of weeks ago, when we were in the heat of the moment, she said someone else’s name. I think it was her ex-boyfriend or something. I didn’t say anything about it at the time but it is making me question if they are still seeing each other. Even if they are not in contact, he is obviously in her thoughts. It was probably an honest mistake but it has never happened to me before.

Wow, Brian, that’s quite the conundrum! I can’t say that has happened to me before. I don’t think it has, anyway. Ladies, have you ever made this mistake? Did you own up to it or ignore it? Do you think Brian should bring it up even though it didn’t just happen? What would you do if you were with a guy and he called you another name by mistake?

Guys, how would you handle it? Have you ever used the wrong name with someone you were seeing? What happened? Did the lady completely flip out about it?

Do you think it means anything when someone you are seeing brings up the name of their last significant other/partner? How many mentions are too many? Are you more understanding if the person was with their ex for a long time?

Happy Thursday

Lioness

people looking for old flames on prison websites..

the prison/felon website provides some valuable information.

For example, I found out that one of my Cincy neighbors was a sex offender (with kids) and the bus stop was in his yard….

My mami is on Facebook…amd she friended me. Come to think of it..so is my dad. He’s my friend too! Wow…hell is having a snow day!

Staceye – I’m saying. :lol:

I accepted my Dad’s freind request, but I limit what he can see. He can’t see my partying photos or status updates. My parents were very vocal about “we are not your friends” when I was growing up, so they don’t get “friend” benefits. :lol:

@ W-8 after you finish with FB throw something on the grill for dinner.

@Raqi I said I was going to sit around and do nothing and take something store bought to other folk’s cookouts, but now I want to go somewhere…short day trip or something.

@Ared you are so right about others are reading. I guess I got tired of reading and just had to jump in one day. I must say this is a good way to make the work day go by faster.

Snippa – Not a class reunion?!!? Lol…but I can’t deny that’s kind of the way I saw it after awhile myself.

Raqi – Shoot, I remember a little boy that I went to school with. We grew up/knew each other since the 2nd grade. Cute boy, dk skinned, baby hair, and tall, but mean as the devil! A lot of the kids were afraid of him…he was somewhat intimidating…his face was reminiscent of a drill sgt!…he even used to force me to let him ride me on his handle bars after school as if he was “giving me a ride home” or something?!!! Lol…since he was pretty good friends with one of my male cousins. But that little boy (unfortunately) was the “school dough boy” of West Tampa Elem at least by 5th or 6th grade (which I was not surprised).

I was surprised that he never got caught…at least by school faculty/staff…but he had a dayum scroll for a record and has been spotted ocassionally, if he’s not doing time. smh…

I will admit that I fought Facebook for a while, but then everyone stopped posting on my alma mater’s ning sites and moved to facebook. Since I went to two universities – it was like merging two sites into one.

I don’t do social networking sites and never will. I use them for surveillance at work, for whatever value they have in that regard. You might think you have control over who sees your wall, etc., but you don’t.

I’ve heard it said that reunions are obsolete due to social networking sites. What purpose does a reunion serve when everyone who’d show up has a Facebook page anyway? You already know what you’d want to know. Why go to the reunion?

Not to mention Facebook Addiction Disorder, an identified condition that’s more focused than General Internet Addiction Disorder. There are more than 155 sites dedicated to FAD on Facebook itself, and facebook.com publishes other information about detection, prevention and cureative measures for it, yet the thing is designed to suck people into checking their status and that of their ‘friends’ constantly.

Facebook is a social ill. Progress!
