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!

JMO it’s protocol to take a shower after being in contained water, no such thing as being “cleaned” after taking a bath.

That is what I mentioned in my earlier post…milk with oatmeal baths…being doing them since I was 8 y/o…and ppl always want to know why my skin is so soft..pure about 1/2 cup milk into water…put oatmeal in a pantyhose knee hi…pull through the water…and then use the oatmeal hose to wash all over your skin.

Okay I just have to ask. How dirty is you all’s water? That you have to shower after bathing everytime?

Not being funny or anything but I bathe every night and shower every morning. I don’t work on a construction site I sit in an office. How dirty are you getting?

Grace,u know i been told some of these pple actually wash their hair too in the kitchen sink,then they go head and wash their collards,kale and other veges in the same kitchen after the hair do..so they can cook them and eat them..not their dogs or cats..no,humnas LMAO!

their thinking and rationale..coz they washed the sink after the hair do…….

IF u “smart” and got it like that? might as well wash ur collards in the toilet bowl. then………well u flushed last time u did dudu,so the water in there is clean u know……… :lol: :lol:

Mrs Mason, that’s how I was raised, take a bath/soak and shower. It has nothing to do with how dirty I was. just like I don’t wash my face/body with he same cloth I was my behind with.

I just got an email telling me to turn V103 on. Frankie is on there drunk as Cootie Brown. I had enuf. Called the radio station, got through and asked why no one is concerned that she’s on the air drunk. This young chick said “I’m sitting in front of her, and she’s not drunk!” I told her apparently you don’t know what drunk sounds and look like. Horrible!

Melo when I lived in the apts I had a neighbor that bathed her dog in the kitchen sink. I told my son when he was over there playing to not eat or drink anything. If he got thirsty he better swallow his spit until he got back home.

Raqi- It is just the fact that I sat my behind in there & soaked.. No ring is necessary for me to take a shower afterward. I just don’t feel clean enough.

I can’t take a bath unless I scrubbed the tub first no matter if I just cleaned the tub the day before.. I have a friend that would take a bath in a hotel’s tub..

Melo- :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

just like I don’t wash my face/body with he same cloth I was my behind with.

LOL Grace I was giving Tazzee and Ms. Main a hard time one day about that. I don’t use a washcloth on my face I use a face cleansing cloth so I was trying to get them to explain why they used a different washcloth. As if the dirt from their face would soil their behind. LOL

My husband uses one wash cloth per bathing. He washes his face then washes his body and then takes the washcloth and towel in the laundry to be washed. I take that back. He rolls the washcloth and towel into a tight bundle and leaves it on the floor or counter for me to take down to the laundry. LOL

Seriously though unless you are using the same washcloth more than one day, which you should not, I don’t see anything bad about washing your face and then your body with the same cloth. The cloth gets washed in the washer before using it again to wash your face first.

Right?

sink water in my bathroom

Now what’s wrong with the sink water? It’s not the same water that runs in the toilet.

Grace- You special Suga!! Where do you rinse your mouth & toothbrush?

Raqi- So you use a different towel & washcloth per day?

Bad Habit:

I tend to roll sheets between my index finger & thumb when relaxed

Raqi well, my pattern is – wash, rise and repeat….so I have to have 2 differnt wash cloths.

I personally don’t I think I have any bad habits except maybe smoking. Now viewed by others or even you all might have a different opinion and that’s because like all situations most people have “can’t mind your own business itis”.

WD wrote:” Do you have a bad habit of talking down about love and romance? Are you constantly negative about the opposite sex”

Yes, and I have a god given right to and so does anyone else who does. That stuff is really for the weak-minded; please hold my hand through life people. I might be compelled to think differently if most people were not always looking for a handout and constantly wanting just to have there wrist smacked when they mess up. I never was given a handout, I was always held accountable for the things I did, and so what’s wrong with implying this on everyone else. Please enlighten me why your arse is special?

Grace, I am the same way, don’t wash face with same cloth as I bathe with. I also have a seperate face towel.

Dealing with anything in the kitchen sink other than food is a no-no in my house. No washing hair or anything – not sanitary.

Melo – A lot of old-school folks I know feel that they are not clean unless they take a bath! I always thought how could you be cleaner if all that dirt & grease are floating on top of the water, to stick right back on you when you stand up?! Baths are nice, but a shower gets all that stuff off you!

Lioness Yes. Who doesn’t?

I guess you were not on here the day I was ranting about all the number of towels and washcloths I have to wash everyday.

I wash a full load every single day. Normally 5-6 towels and washcloths per load. Every. Single. Day.

Raqi/Lioness LOL it is a weird habit, I keep a jug of water on my sink for my oral cleaning. somehow I think the toilet water and the sink water are connected,,,I know it’s not but I’m wired like that :oops:

(Randyt wondering if he went by the Gwinnett jail would they let him in so he could slap the dog poo out of the guy that slapped the two year old kid in Wally World…and wondering what he would look like the next day if he tried that stuff on one of Randyt’s).

Grace – Everybody has their little quirks, no harm in yours! For some reason, when I lived in my first little apartment, in Marietta, the water SMELLED toxic! I used to use bottled water for my toothbrush & rinsing too. Also to cook.

Yes Grace. When I pull the spread back in the evenings the sheets are all nice and crisp. And guess what they fold better and fit in the linen closet better. Not to mention looks better when you open the linen closet.
