Bad Habits

All of us has quirky little things about us that are part of who we are. For the most part, they are pretty harmless and aren’t such a big deal. However, I believe some of us have some bad habits that may actually run potential partners away. How honest are we about them, though?

I’m quick to say that I love me and if another person can’t recognize all my wonderful goodness (flaws and all) then forget about them! Every now and then, though I have had to stop and think to myself. Is this yet another reason why I’m still single?

What are you bad habits that need to be dropped? I had one that I had no choice but to drop: dating men who had no clue how to be supportive or meet my needs emotionally. They were my bad habit! They were great on paper, ambitious and driven, yada yada. When it came to checking on me and caring about what I thought or felt, I was invisibile. That’s not a good feeling: Being in a couple and feeling alone.

Do you have a bad habit you are drawn to? Maybe there is something about your behavior that is turning people off? Do you have a bad habit of talking down about love and romance? Are you constantly negative about the opposite sex and have a bad habit of complaining about them to everyone you meet?

If we were to take a real honest assessment of some of our bad habits, what do you think we could find to improve? How can we drop them like a…well bad habit!

Raqi – My mom used to iron the sheets too. I fold mine warm out of the dryer, but I do iron the pillowcases. I use a little spray starch on them. That smell combined with the fabric softner remind me of my mom!

LOL Lioness it’s easy. I fold the sheets as I iron them. I usually leave the linen for Saturdays. It takes a minute to iron 4 days worth of sheets. That includes the sheets from my son’s bed. I change his twice a week.

You know WiseDiva some of these good and quirky habits can also be enough to drive and uninspired partner away.

The first time my husband so me bathing he asked “what in the heck are you doing?” LOL I bath in little scrubbing circles until I cover my whole body. I use a brush for my back but when Mason washes my back I tell him to do it in small circles until he covers the entire area, from shoulders to buttocks.

Thanks, Raqi. Ok, good habits? let me think.

Someone said something about bugs….last night around 12 i woke up screaming because i felt something crawling on me. It was on the back of my neck, so I felt it and just grabbed it and threw it! i got up and ripped all of my sheets off and it was on the floor. it was a pincher bug! i don’t know if that’s what you all call it out here, but it was one of those! ughh.

Last week when I was in Phoenix, there was a scorpion on the floor in my condo.

Goodnight everyone!

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

Enjoy the holiday. Be careful and BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS AND THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU!

Grace – we have tentatively set a date, but that was only so we could sign up for premarital counseling at church. We’re not having a wedding, so really it’s just setting up a meeting with the pastor. But I have honeymoons in mind (that changes hourly, :lol: )
