No, Seriously

I was asked what the dating scene in Atlanta was like recently. I smiled and said, well, you need three things: healthy dose of self-esteem, loads of patience, and a sense of humor. I think that is pretty much going to keep your dating drama to a minimum.

In your opinion, when you are getting to know someone, is it a waste of time to get to know someone that you think has little potential for “MVP status” with you? I ask because, I think so many times we completely miss the mark on who is actually a good match for us.

Have you ever met someone who seemed like a colossal waste of time, then they turned out to be a great thing?

Are we not willing to take risks in dating anymore? Does that make us big chickens when it comes to match in love and romance?

If you are brave enough to want an actual relationship with someone, how long does it usually take before you take the person seriously? Is it more about their behavior and consistency or the amount of time they have managed not to repulse you? Perhaps a little of both? What are your thoughts?

I don’t belive in getting even, I’d rather get ghost. More times than not for me I aint hanging around that long.

I agree. I value life/my heart/my peace, too much to be dealing with someone’s son bs.

SO I read a few of the earlier blogs and flakiness from either sex is called “Just not that into you” doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out. If someone is into you it doesn’t fade as fast and the gleening isn’t off the table. LOL..

On topic, no it doesn’t take me long to figure out if someone is for me or not. I know what I want out of life and a mate if they don’t fit in my inner zone of a romance than they can still be a friend. I don’t throw the term around loosly so if not a friend then hey nice meeting you and be gone…

AmazonRed…I know sis, I just wanted to show you how unique and special we (as human) truly are. Each of us have a story to tell or needs to be told…some folks not at all…But regardless, it is up the individual to decide how he will play the cards he was given. Personal accountabilities are a MUST!!!

Number two,any man that cajoles a woman to bone him in the white house,in plain view of all the frolicking secretaries,assistants etc traversing those busy halls,and not being caught,is not a man to play with as far as mouf skills is concerned!

AFTER WE MAKE LOVE by Whitney Houston

I’ve been waiting such a long time
For a love that’s real to come my way
Gonna take some getting used to
Now that love is here to stay

After we make love
I’ll be lost in the afterglow
You’re all I’m dreaming of
I just can’t, I just can’t let the feeling go
After we make love
There’s no doubt in my mind
I’ve been touched by
All that heaven and earth will allow
All that matters is right here and now

I just sit in wonderment of the folks who struggle to maintain their anger level. Life is not supposed to be that way. Really.

Just my opinion of course.

I stated that some schools have stopped honor rolls and dodge ball because kids feeling get hurt. Then I stated that type of action does not prepare the kids for the real world (as in when they get to be adults) when there are layoff and furloughs. They aren’t equipped to handle disappointment.
