Complicated

I really dig complex men. Those extremely cerebral types really do it for me. In the past, my questionable choices in men have often backfired on me. I think part of problem was that I was often drawn to the tortured soul. In my head, I glamorized their personality as complex and complicated. Someone who thought deeper, felt intense emotions, and challenged me. Yeah, NO.

The reality was they didn’t think all that deeply, their emotions stayed on the “cold” side, and I wasn’t being challenged, I was being barked at and berated. It took some heart break and a restraining order to realize that crazy is not the same as complicated.

A truly complicated, complex person won’t hide behind empty rhetoric or ambiguity. They may start out guarded, but they will give you access when you have proven yourself trustworthy. Then you peel away the layers and realize that complex can be a very positive attribute.

I don’t want to paint all complex people with the same brush. I still feel drawn to the “complex” type, but I think I have improved my selection skill now. It’s like a hidden prerequiste that I don’t outright tell the men I date that I am looking for in a man.

One of our MIA Blog men, Mr. W8. got me to thinking about this kind of “hidden qualifier”, when he posed a couple of great questions:

What are those things that you know that you want in a potential mate, but you never reveal it? Perhaps you just wait to see if they do (or show) it on their own so they won’t fake it.

Have you ever dated someone and they do (or say something) that you never knew you needed but it spoke to your soul and now you can’t live without it? What was it? How did you handle it?

Is being complicated and complex a liability or an asset on the dating scene?

Morning all,

I’m keeping it simple, in dating especially. I don’t need complex or complicated. I feel if it’s right, things will fall in to place. Not to say that complex never happens, but life will throw that to you without you having to complicate things with someone who just leaves you confused.

With that being said, I don’t know if there is something I’d want from a mate I’d never reveal. That just sounds like a game or a test that folks pull on others. Like I said, given time, life will throw stuff at someone to prove what they are made of. I don’t need to go manufacturing it.

Make it a great day folks.

For me, quirkiness(sp) is more attractive than complexity. I like women who enjoy one or two things that are off the perverbial radar, things that other people may consider weird given a specific demographic. I think when a person can genuinely enjoy something that their peers don’t consider normal it gives them a certain sexy individuality that attracts me.

Good Morning WD and ARed! Just wanna say thanks to this blog community for making my summer stacation interesting.

From my expereince when things are complicated (confusing), it’s not usually for me. Not that I don’t want or can’t accept challenges but these days, I’m with you ARed I just want to keep it simple and transparent. If I care, I will give it a chance, but then I’m moving on to what is really true.

My ability to be in love is not greater then my ability to love myself.

I’ll check in with you all later……………….

I’m pretty doubtful there is any such animal as a complex man. We are a fairly simple gender.

I’m not saying that we all fit into the stereotypes of TV sitcoms but the thing about stereotypes is there is usually a grain of truth to them. Obviously I’m speaking a VERY general terms here. Most guys I’ve met that try to come off as complex or mysterious tend to be smucks and have a VERY weak game. They tend to prey on women that have issues usually with self worth.

Just find a guy with a brain that can carry on a convo and has decent morals that you can have fun with. Most of us look for the same kind of qualities in women.

Good Morning All:
I will probably ponder for a while on this topic.
Is being complicated and complex a liability or an asset on the dating scene?
I think being complicated and complex starts off as an asset but ends up being a liability. It is very hard to decipher what mode a person is in and initially the guessing my be fun, however if that person does not give you any hints or tidbits to work off of, you may find yourself throwing darts in the dark. And, you are probably missing your target.
Have you ever dated someone and they do (or say something) that you never knew you needed but it spoke to your soul and now you can’t live without it?
Yes, I have always been a very private person and I try to solve everything myself. I will never forget when I said I am a big girl and I can handle this, and the guy I was dating told me yes I love the fact that you are a big girl and can handle things, but let me take some of this pressure. That statement spoke volumes and I always look for someone that doesn’t mind sharing the pressure if I am going through rough times. Likewise I try to help share the pressure as well.
Great topic and great questions…

Good morning! I like a man who is easy to be with, none of that confusing, complex stuff for me. I need someone who can laugh at the same base things I think are funny, but be able to have a thought provoking conversation five minutes later. Grounded, but well-rounded.

I dated a complicated man some years back and it was mentally exhausting.

Jamoca/Leggs — We watched the “Dating in the Dark” show and it sparked some interesting conversation about chemistry and attraction between us and the building of relationships in general. We talked about our individual moodiness and his specifically: he said that sometimes, he didn’t know how I could deal with him on a regular basis and still love him. So I told him what I told y’all yesterday, that my love for him comes in waves. I even told him what I said about his feet and the Chris Rock joke. This fool cracked up and said that it was sweetest most, real thing any woman has ever said to him. He said that he too alternates how he feels. Some days, he feels like starting all over and some days, he’s overwhelmed by how much love he feels. I told him that that’s how we know we’re not making this up, that real love isn’t static. Then I got the Tylenol PM.

Being ‘complicated and complex’ is a liability in life. I consider it self-imposed drama. In general, life doesn’t have to be that way, and people who are like that tend to inflict themselves on other people rather than bring anybody any joy.

Morning Folks!!!

What are those things that you know that you want in a potential mate, but you never reveal it? Perhaps you just wait to see if they do (or show) it on their own so they won’t fake it. Consistency. I don’t hide it from a potential mate intentionally, it’s just one of those things that only time reveals.

Have you ever dated someone and they do (or say something) that you never knew you needed but it spoke to your soul and now you can’t live without it? What was it? How did you handle it? I wouldn’t say I can’t live without it, but I really love how my guy takes care of me. I know I’ve mentioned this on here before but it blew my mind at first and was a little annoying. He can’t stand when I take out the trash and things like that. Now it just flows. I don’t take it for granted – he always tells me I don’t have to thank him (but I’m sure he loves the little kiss that comes with the ‘thank you’). If he and I don’t make it, he’s destroyed me for the next guy that comes along.

Not trying to change the topic early but…there was so much on TV/video last night – Chris Brown’s apology :roll: Joe Jackson on Larry King and TO’s new reality show.

Do you all agree or disagree that certain backgrounds, upbringings and careers sort of influence how complex someone becomes. I go back and forth with that one…I have shared before that I have an uncle that is a medical doctor and he is quite simple and calm. However, I have seen other people with a less stressful occupation that is so complex and I often wonder.

Is being complicated and complex a liability or an asset on the dating scene?

This may sound like a cop-out for an answer, but being complicated is a liability while you’re dating… until you find that person that appreciates it. Then it becomes an asset… but then are you still just dating? It’s somewhat like the chicken and the egg arguement – just not as complicated…

There is a difference between being quirky, being a character, and being complex. We all know that dating in the beginning stages is just like a job interview – you want to show that you aren’t a robot, but you want to make sure they don’t think you’re crazy either.

It’s a fine line to have to stay on, and to be honest, I’m glad I’m done with that portion… after you get married, then the fun starts and the two personalities start meshing.

Lioness, I’d say a person such as you describe would benefit from some kind of counseling. That said, I’m not a big believer in psychology, happy pills to cure one’s emotional ills, a lot of quackery. Christian counseling can be of some benefit, at least over the short term.

Or, some folks are just going to be difficult, problem children, requiring emotional problems to feel truly alive, calling it passion and complexity. If it’s not to be considered a malaise that can be overcome, then certainly, I’d avoid people like that if I could.

Complex… Complicated…Whatever those words mean with regard to dating…

If you don’t fall victim to popular trends and you actually take time to think about things beyond what you see on cnn, and the news you can get labeled as complex or whatever. I say its normal, if you actually read non fiction and try to form your own opinions people think you are something special.. but I think you are just how everyone should be… But then again if everyone formed their own opinions there would be no way to get rich… LoL

Was right on… no one is all that complex if you actually PAY ATTENTION. If they are a “complex” person you just need to not keep trying to put them in the same box as other people you have dated and pay attention to the way they work. Its not hard at all unles they are they type who are not consistent with their thoughts/feelings, in that case they are not complex but they are unstable.

I’m just glad I’m still here to tell the story

I could have been dead sleeping in my grave
but god blessed me to see another day
even when I did wrong he was still there
I’m so glad that god still hears a sinners prayer

Ye that’s without sin, wont you cast the first stone

Hey WD :) thanks!

I am guilty of this myself I am very guarded and people think that I am very brash and I berate them. In reality I hardly have no tact at all and I am just a straight shooter..it’s my personality type..I am not for everyone nor do I get along with everyone..but once you get to know me and I feel that you are trustworthy I am a big goofy, silly guy who loves to joke and have fun. So i guess I am not that complex you just have to learn who I am. My heart is my weakest link and I protect it at all cost. I can do anything in this world great but when it comes to matters of the heart I am not all that great and I know it so I keep it in Maximum Security Lock Up…because once I really love I love hard with no reservations and when I hurt I hurt hard and it takes me to long to recover..so there are some layers to peel back when dealing with me if you want to get close to my heart.

I really believe in the “hidden qualifier”. Some people see this a s a test, but hell what is dating? Its a big “test”/trial run for marriage or whatever it you want your desired outcome to be…and sometimes there is no cheat sheet. Why would I give someone ALL of the answers to me? SO that she can take it and run with it? I want to know that it comes from who you are..your inner being. Not just something you are making yourself do and it’s not really a part of your demeanor and you just do it for awhile then you fall back into your old self

Have you ever dated someone and they do (or say something) that you never knew you needed but it spoke to your soul and now you can’t live without it? What was it? How did you handle it?

This past weekend while getting my car washed I ran into a Deacon from my Church. Up until a few years ago I was walking the walk not perfect in the Lord but focused., and not messy like my life is now. I headed up the Men’s Ministry, the Christian Education Ministry even got Man of the Year award from the Church. But I became weak and fell out of relationship with the Lord and became angry and so i would not be hypocritical I removed myself from leadership(which was right) and Church(which was wrong). Anyway I was sitting there and I look up and I see Deac. I just blurted out “Hey” and he goes “how you been and where have you been, and how’s your wife and family” (that was an eye opened because my attempts have been mediocre at best in getting back into a relationship with the Lord since 2007) I told him I was divorced and he asked why(amazing how a true person of good will just bring the truth out of you and get you to talking with out them really saying a word). So anyway I updated him about my divorce, the death of my dad and my 2 brothers since I last spoke to him. He guided me towards wisdom and did not even push prayer, church or anything..just some kind words. That conversation incited me, it spoke to my soul and I knew what I had been missing in my life..it wasn’t a relationship with a woman but a relationship with the Lord. I am by no means perfect nor do I expect to be. I don’t judge people…only me and my own personal standards…now I will qualify you to see if you are on my level. Hence the second question:”
Have you ever dated someone and they do (or say something) that you never knew you needed but it spoke to your soul and now you can’t live without it?”

I let a few people close to me know what was going on with me and that I am going to try and make a change or better yet get back to my old self. Key word is “try” and I hate it when people use that word it’s either you “do” or you “don’t” but this is a hard road for me. Anyway once I shared this with a few people their roles in my life became very clear.

1.Best friend “Man I am glad, I have been trying to tell you this all along but you are so damn stubborn you wont listen, one day at a time I will pray with you”(True Sign of a Friend)
2. Deacon”I know, and take your time”(Spiritual Council at it’s best)
3. Female friend”Thanks for sharing”(mmmkay wtf?)
4. Female friend”What’s that mean to me”(mmkay I can kinda understand that)
5. Daughter”Dad, maybe you can rest better now that you know what you have been missing”(Wisdom of youth)
6. Female friend”I have a problem with Churches and them wanting to brainwash you and your money etc”..I told her”you need to work on a personal relationship with God first and let him lead you to the correct Church for you”( had no clue this friends had a desire to go to church)
7. Female friend”I support you in that I believe a man should pursue the Lord first and nobody is perfect we all have our downfalls but a personal relationship is a direct reflection of your spirititual walk”(paraphrased…but it spoke to me)
8. Homeboy”Well you know Im Jewish”(mmkay, lol)

***What I need that I didnt know I needed is a woman who cares about me spiritually and now that I know I need that I will not compromise that standard. And now the question needs to be asked: Is he to complicated or are you to simple to understand?***

Have you ever dated someone and they do (or say something) that you never knew you needed but it spoke to your soul and now you can’t live without it?

One should never become so set to where they don’t allow themselves new experiences. Sometimes that is what a mate to brings you to, new life experiences. As we grow when learn new things about ourselves that can be shown to us thru someone else’s eyes.

I remember dating the marido and he grabbing me the arm one day and saying abc-xyz. While I had been avoided it, it was what I needed and later realized I wanted hear. The same with me showing him how he tends to take people that he has become common and familiar with for granted. He denied it several times when I said but I made him really see it one day. He says he never really realized it.

I have not read all the post, including W8’s but I will. My feelings on the subject concur with Graces’ 10:13 though. Been there, done that, would not do it again. I keeps it simple now & it so works for me. Don’t have time for the manufactured drama that John “I’m a complicated man and no one understands me but my woman” Shaft brings!

I do really dig quirky & different, like DW said! Someone that is into something outside of the norm for me, like scuba diving, is very, very attractive to me.

From yesterday – Remember how later into the day we got into some women allowing their friends to influence & interfere with dating? That was the topic on Michael Baisden yesterday.

Do men realize that most women want them to take the lead in the relationship? Why do women always have to find ways to keep their man happy? Why don’t men find ways to keep their woman happy? Some men KNOW how to keep their woman happy, but most don’t. Not with material things either.. Simpel things..

Question: Why are their so many books on how women can keep their man OR how to make him marry you? Where are the self help books for men to keep their woman happy & make he WANT to marry you?

W8 Reading back to your comments about how your circle of fam/friends responded to you reclaiming God back into your life. I was thinking how even the one that is put on a pedestal at churched (pastors, deacons, mothers board, ministers and such) get cornered to think the they never fall/fail/stunmble, or get in a “back sliden” state, but THEY DO!!! Explainging this to someone that focuses more on a persons “hypocrisy” is so hard. it’s not about them, or their walk, but is is about the PERSONAL walk with God. God does not care where or what state of person you are when you come to him…just come.

Good morning everyone!

@Foots, the entire concept of “Dating in the Dark” has been explored on this blog. It was somewhat comical to see how althought chemistry is very important, it won’t sustain a relationship if the physical attraction isn’t there. She left him standing on that balcony never once looking back. On the other hand, one wasn’t too keen with the physicality of his date, but connected so much mentally and decided to take a chance.

@Foots/Rell ~ real love recognizes real love (9:09 and 9:15) and certain remarks are not looked ot as daggers being thrown at someone’s heart, but constructive criticism, albeit being said w/sweet/sour sincerity. When you can laugh and not storm out the door is a sign that the relationship is healthy.

As for myself, I don’t want complexity nor drama in my life or in the life of my mate. Would perfer to mesh with someone on a smooth playing field than a rocky playground. I see nothing wrong with being quirky. Nothing at all!

@W8, that post will cost you $1,000,000 but since it was so heartfelt and touching, your account is paid in full!

Cerebral is NICE…and a must. Although women do get those who look and taste like candy but aren’t worth the empty calories. What surprisingly works for me? Hmmm…Being hushed.

I think at the end of the day it’s so very simple. It’s not hard to figure out who we respond to on multiple levels. But we make it complex when we don’t accept people at face value. Rell had some great rhetoric yesterday about men often focusing on the outcome. I think that, along with (.02 Theory. # 463) focusing on what they have “come to expect” of women versus what “actually is” gets us to Complication State – Panic mode 10. It’s scary for most to deal with the unpredictable, but especially so for men who are used to taking control of situations.

But to me, that’s what makes it a more fun ride. Who really wants to map out a complete blue print and have dude paint by numbers? I think if you give him a sketch, the right ones will figure out where to fill in the blanks.

Powerful. I have posted about that in times past. Many of the old heads know about my failed attempt to maintain the straight and narrow. Church ALL the time. Choir rehearsals. Just the high holy roller. They also remember the hypocritical extremes that I took it to. I lasted about six months.

My lesson in all that – It’s hard to live it like it’s preached. I cannot live it like it’s a religion. I am not a religious person. You can do ANYthing religiously. I brush my teeth religiously. I come to work religiously. I could go on and on about religiousness.

In the many sides that I share with all of you – my good, my bad and my ugly, the thing that lies just under the surface are my beliefs and my relationship. I am grateful that even in all of my sin and my imperfection, HE still holds me in the palm of His hand.

Let me add. Just because we veer off into spirituality, and some are offended – let THEM be!…Heck, who are we? Jesus (of no sin) was not offended when the Pharasiees spoke religion and was also downgrading spirtiual walk with him.

…who are we, to not speak on it?

I loved this!

I am grateful that even in all of my sin and my imperfection, HE still holds me in the palm of His hand.

Also…i told one person on this forum that i talk to off line:

Hebrews 13:2 Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.

Just like the time i popped in here one day and shared the story about meeting the bumb at McDonalds one day. What he told me that day was so important. And i always make it a point in my life to be concious of how i say or treat anyone.

Oh and just one more point of clarity about ‘living it like it’s preached’. I think that a LOT of ministers do people a disservice by preaching a life that allows for no faults. It’s almost like we can acknowledge that we’re sinners, but we’re not supposed to sin. But I understand that it can be difficult to preach real life.

Another thing – I was so involved in the church that I got a bit jaded. To a degree, because I was an active choir member, I began to feel like I was a part of the ‘entertainment’. It started to feel like a production, like a show. I had to pull back from that and get back to what was personal for me.

I flee sometimes when I realize the hurt that could come if it doesnt work out.. – W8 do you take into consideration how she would feel if/when you withdraw from her? I think that is where the problem lies with most men. They let the fear of being hurt again prevent them from loving again. Life is full of chances and if you let your past take over your present it will put a halt on your future and you’ll never be able to truly love again. It’s good at times to remember the past in order for you to not make the same mistakes/moves that lead to destrustion but when your past holds you hostage you’re not allowing the person with the key to unlock the cell door you’ve created for yourself.

SexyCool, church music is a production, and it is entertainment, for a particular purpose of enhancing the congregation’s worship experience. Now, God likes music, and that’s a fact; he gave it to us, and it’s a grand and glorious gift. But the music is from God and for the people. It’s not as if you’re playing or singing with God as your audience, not exactly anyway. Rather, you become God’s instrument as a blessing for the people.

If you have such a gift from God, use it to glorify Him by sharing the blessing with His people. Re-join the choir, be God’s instrument. Don’t mind too much the human trappings of entertainment in church. If the music program is right, it won’t be overboard. Just enough to fire up the church such that the Spirit blows the roof off the joint.

That doesn’t sound OCD. It sounds more quirky than anything.

The store pens are actually ok given the situation. I’d be more worried about the baskets or buggies in the grocery store than a pen. The carts and buggies are so bad that stores have begun to offer wipes for them. If they are willing to admit that they are nasty by offering wipes, how bad are they really?

OCD is what Rev. Run’s son, Diggy, shows at times. Using a whole new bar of soap everytime? Whoa.

You’re welcome, and it’s my pleasure. You know, the thing is, every time a singer opens their mouth to sing, every note an instrumentalist plays, should be just like that: being God’s instrument. It doesn’t have to be sacred music in the church, it can be secular and happen anywhere. It’s like seeing things in nature that make you reflect on the total Glory that is God’s creation. Music can be just such a phenomenon. Kind of like being in the Spirit so that Jesus can keep living His life on earth through you, only different.

I guess most men think that doing unto other’s as you have them do unto you doesn’t apply to them.

That is so untrue. That is such a broad overstatement. Most men really want to make things right. We want to say that “We got this”. We like to make our loved ones happy. So, we aren’t just takers.

However, as W8’s post suggest, we protect our heart after getting hurt because that is what we have control over. I can’t control another person’s actions (her motivations), but I can control my actions (my responses).

Music was such an integral part of my life that as I focused on developing a relationship with Christ, I had to refrain from listening to certain songs. After a while all I listened to was spiritual music. I still have to watch what I listen to because I’m one that internalizes it.

@ Melo – He was in search of a ride to his brother’s to get food/shelter. I shared with him even though i would never give a stranger male a ride home. But i was willing to sit in Mc Donalds and talk with him. I’d bought his food and share with him how him being homeless correlated to something that happened to me after becoming a single mom. We conversed and he said – he’d never expect a younger girl to even take the time to actually sit and chat with him in McDonald’s that evening (it was a Friday). The division between our lifestyles and how we uplifted each other on a day that he felt the most homeless, reminded him of God siting and challenging people to cross the demographs and love thy brother.

Jazz is a musical art form which originated at the beginning of the 20th century in African American communities in the Southern United States from a confluence of African and European music traditions. The style’s West African pedigree is evident in its use of blue notes, improvisation, polyrhythms, syncopation, and the swung note.

Jazz can be hard to define because it spans from Ragtime waltzes to 2000s-era fusion. While many attempts have been made to define jazz from points of view outside jazz, such as using European music history or African music, jazz critic Joachim Berendt argues that all such attempts are unsatisfactory.One way to get around the definitional problems is to define the term “jazz” more broadly. Berendt defines jazz as a “form of art music which originated in the United States through the confrontation of blacks with European music”; he argues that jazz differs from European music in that jazz has a “special relationship to time, defined as ’swing’”, “a spontaneity and vitality of musical production in which improvisation plays a role”; and “sonority and manner of phrasing which mirror the individuality of the performing jazz musician”

Fox 5 Atlanta had a special report about those anti-bacteria gels. They tested 5 types. The cheap stuff (Walgreens, I think) was the only thing that worked.

Purell actually made the bacteria grow faster than if there was nothing put on it. Sam’s brand get was just plain nasty…bacteria grew 6 times the rate if nothing was put on it.

The gels are hit a miss.

Jamoca's the Sweetest Thing You'd Ever Know

July 21st, 2009
1:54 pm

Good Afternoon, you all…just briefly jumpin’ right on in.

Someone who’s described as a complex individual (IMO) simply means that there’s a lot more going on beneath the surface than what you/we see or may even perceive…and at times these little facets of their personalities are often misunderstood, because others looking from the outside in may deem whatever “display of qualities/liabilities to being equivalent to their “whole being” or entire “make up”. (If that makes any sense to some…) There’s a lot more to them, than what meets the eye. Which going by the definition means

1. a group of related, often repressed ideas and impulses that compel characteristic or habitual patterns of thought, feelings, and behavior
2. Difficult to understand
3. 1.A usually large entity composed of interconnected or interwoven parts

And just going by this ^^^ it doesn’t seem so negative. Really it’s all in what you make it to be…but may be I say that because I’m already biased…I’m a lover of deep thoughts myself.

Wise – Some of the examples given in the introduction seemed like it was more than likely inconsistences, misinterpreting and just pure negative energy in order to keep you “under their thumbs”. I dunno.

Foots – Hey chica! You know, Leggs told me about that show “Dating in the Dark???” before…I may have to check it out. Sounds interesting. And btw, I’m glad to hear your “personal physician” had time to squeeze you into his busy schedule of sci-fi programs, to give ya’ a lil TLC along with a few doses of that Tylenol PM. Works like a charm, doesn’t it? ;)

Lioness – Nice to read you again. Welcome back!

…and W8 – In the words of preacha’ mayne (The Color Purple)…”Gawd’s tryna tell you somethin’… ” And I’m with several others when I say: I’m finna cry, between all this soul searching and “man-uppin’ ” between you and Demi. Yeah, the light is definitely shining on you…and not everyone recognize it…and for those who do, yet reject it…it’s not you, it’s HIM. So “we” already know whose battle this belongs to. And I’m sure you’ll keep in mind, that you can’t take everyone on this journey with you. Just keep going with it though. My grandmother used to tell me often, that He has his way(s) of getting through to you and usually it’s when we’re “alone” …strangely those are the times when we’re more apt to listen and take heed, with little to no distractions. So.. for others to recognize a full fledge man’s spiritual leadership, along with acknowledgement and fear of the “I AM” speaks volumes…regardless of what others have to say, think or feel. Walk that walk. Oh, you got one mo’ time to mess with me about the “scrolls” that I have a tendency to post! LOL

SCool/Cee – I wish more folks in the church were more humble, human and honest about the back slidin’ and our imperfect selves. Cosigning also the acknowledgment of being sinners, but looking down on those who have/still do/still will. It happens everyday.

Grace – You were on point too with —> do you take into consideration how she would feel if/when you withdraw from her? I think that is where the problem lies with most men. They let the fear of being hurt again prevent them from loving again. Life is full of chances and if you let your past take over your present it will put a halt on your future and you’ll never be able to truly love again. It’s good at times to remember the past in order for you to not make the same mistakes/moves that lead to destrustion but when your past holds you hostage you’re not allowing the person with the key to unlock the cell door you’ve created for yourself.

This ^^^ here. Nicely stated. What did Erykah say? Remembering is good, is you don’t let it be the fear of you.

Sitting with my Face to the Sun

I found a corner of my spirit to rest in today.
And I decide to lie in the grass
to see if I could feel the world turn.
At the center of my universe,
Words left and I was left with
Love overflowing.

Complexities, complications, intricacies
Ceased.
And simplicity took their place.
All because I was grooving to the beat of your beliefs,
Listening to rhythm of your soul
And sitting with my face to the sun.

For QC…

@Mo- Bluegrass is some soulful music

I am a man of constant sorrow
I’ve seen trouble all my day.
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
The place where I was born and raised.

For six long years I’ve been in trouble
No pleasures here on earth I found
For in this world I’m bound to ramble
I have no friends to help me now.

It’s fare thee well my old lover
I never expect to see you again
For I’m bound to ride that northern railroad
Perhaps I’ll die upon this train.

You can bury me in some deep valley
For many years where I may lay
Then you may learn to love another
While I am sleeping in my grave.

Maybe your friends think I’m just a stranger
My face you’ll never see no more.
But there is one promise that is given
I’ll meet you on God’s golden shore.

Jamoca's the Sweetest Thing You'd Ever Know

July 21st, 2009
3:10 pm

Well, Rell …I’ve never given off the impression that I know so much of anything. However, I do give off the impression that I know more about myself (than anyone here can perceive or speculate) than some of the generalizations made on here about women …from single, to dating, to single mothers, to “that chick that has a past”.

As a matter of fact, I hardly ever have very much to say about your posts…regardless of how offensive, narrow-minded…yet giving off the aftermath of signs when a man is deeply hurting, yet wading himself through the tides trying to get through it…dealing life’s curve balls as best as he can.

So just back up with all that. I hardly ever read many of you mentioning God when it comes to your own spiritual growth and personal journey with him…heck besides 2Can (…and I really, really miss reading the man).

And heck naw, you don’t owe me or anybody else an explanation of why or why not you choose to keep those aspects of your life to yourself. Cuz truth be told, I don’t divulge every dayum thing about myself on here either…this ain’t “My Dear Diary” contrary to popular belief.

But it is an open forum of all of our thoughts, viewpoints or whatever else we care to share.

And here’s a little tip for “some of you” as well: Not all of us ladies here would wait for the opportunity to throw your imperfections, harsh comments, generalizations or anything you’ve divulged that may hit close to home. Some of us here know from just reading that sometimes it’s just something going on a little deeper (complex) and can recognize with great consideration, when one is going through a transition in their lives…based on what they post…without passing judgments or speculation…and are just fine not knowing every dayum personal aspect of a bloggers life.

Again, Those who know recognize it and those who don’t simply speculate. <— And with this here, you ain’t lookin’ at one of those type of folk.

I cosign…..I’m not afraid of much(first God, then my mom when she’s angry and death) but for me death confronts me with my own mortality as well as those around me and it makes me sad, then afraid, and sad all over again. The fact that I really shoud’ve been dead and gone(got hit be a garbage truck while crossing the street) makes me wonder what my purpose here is and the last few weeks have had me in an introspective mood. It’s good to read that some of us on the blog aren’t taking themselves too seriously and realize that there is more to live for and more things to do and ways that WE can make a difference.

Cemeeli – those cheap towels are a result of me registering for some nice navy blue towels for a housewarming and a cheap guest bringing me some cheap Wal-Mart towels. That is why I don’t register – just bring me some gift cards…

Hey Shameka and Boobina – I am so glad the two of you could come.. Would you all care for a drink. The reason I called you here today is this. I have a problem and I know you two ladies can help me fix it

Shameka & Boobina – What it is baby anything for you.

Lame Gerald – Well its apparent that Shameka I like you but I think I like you in a different capacity that I did in college and where I am in my life your friend is more suited for what I need at this point. Please dont be upset but Boobina would you take my hand and go to love land..

See its easy and simple and the truth is always much better than lying and trying to be sneaky. Or if you are a amateur for real tell them on separate occasions so no ones feelings will be hurt and Shameka will help you get Boobina if ya got a million dollar mouth piece. See it aint what you saying its how you saying it.. Player.

AREDWhy is everyone making such a big deal about Friday’s blog? Just asking because it seemed to warrant a lot of discussion yesterday too.

Actually, I haven’t been on, had a few down moments, attempted to skim and catch up but stopped right where I saw the “come get me, I’m adversting on a blog” post under my moniker…..yep I said “my” moniker…lol I stopped there, didn’t finish Friday’s nor have I read any of yesterday’s. Honestly, not really interesting enough to paddle through so much riff raft. If I ain’t reading and posting as the day progress, more than likely I’m not going to meddle and wad through a buttload of comments. So, no I don’t know what the hype was about yesterday. I actually thought it was funny, someone posting the “come get me” ad as if it was me. Seriously, it ain’t that deep where I have dibs on the “lurker” moniker. Just being funny. Actually doesn’t really matter if someone does impersonate or try and “sabatoge” my blog persona….like I said, it ain’t that deep, I don’t know anybody here and vice versa.

PGSookie is a vampire from the Charlaine Harris series of books from which HBOs series “True Blood” is based. Anna Paquin plays Sookie on the show.

Not all things get better w/time (although that act should)….focus…her first lick of your or slurp of you wasn’t an indicator of her skills, you just got greedy and went in for the kill.

This topic reminds me of, well me. “Complicated” My thing is if you didn’t know me or befriended before my success it will take an act of god to do so now. Coming from an adoptive family, there were many trials but in the end (or so far) as Borat would say “A great success”. Everything I have experienced has made me stronger but, I have a mean streak because it. So yes I’m Complicated, would I date someone the same? Hell no, I can only tolerate one asshat in my life and that’s me. But we walk our own paths, some choices we make, and some are made for us but in the end it makes us who are. As some mentioned early, accepting yourself and loving yourself and who you are is the most important step for anything (doesn’t mean anyone has to like it though). 

No more justification. The plain truth is that this woman (the friend) I wanted to know. In the interactions that we had she was delightful to be around – funny, well-read, intelligent, laid back.

LIONESS one thing I’ve noticed about the characters on Intervention is that most of the ladies have been raped when they were teenagers.

Cee

it was there on Saturday, but not Sunday. So, I’d bet that it runs.

It isn’t there every day.

I haven’t stopped to look at it.

My cousin wants me to help him work on his 68 Chevy Nova SS this weekend. I’ll supervise. He is younger than me.

I used to work on those in my spare time.

I had a 73 Cutless 442 back in the day. This cousin remembers that car. That is why he asked me.
