A Guy Thing?

I will never forget the crazy night I had with a guy I was seeing. We were preparing to leave his house and head to a concert together. As we were backing out the driveway an ex-fling was on the front sidewalk looking a little upset (read: crazy). She wanted to know why he hadn’t called, or returned her calls/messages/emails.

In that kind of situation, a man really has two options: be upfront and give full disclosure on who the woman was, or drive off and pretend she wasn’t really standing there yelling. Which one do you think he chose?  Well, he thought he would just avoid her until the evening was over.

Obviously this didn’t work, and of course minutes later she began calling him.  Why do most guys avoid confrontation of breaking up? Is it just a guy thing, though? Is it hard for women to be the one that calls the time of death on the relationship?

I know a couple of guys that will act like a complete blockhead so that the woman will have no choice but to end things. They would rather do this then explain that she is not the right one for him. Ladies, have you ever experienced this before? Have you ever dated a man who avoided confrontation? Did you call him on it or cut your losses? Have you ever been the one to avoid confrontation in a relationship?

Guys, do you think that some men are like kids and think that men do what women let them do? Is that another way to let a man be a man? Do you think men push the limits to see what they can get away with when it comes to relationships? How would a woman handle a man who is doing that in a dating relationship? Should she stand her ground and let him know he crossed the line?

Poppa G dont you dare bring up that curse. Troy P has a sprained MCL..(big butt Crumpler fell on him) so he maybe out for 3-6 weeks. You are right about the run game. I was ready to shake Willie P. But I think the little fellow..Moore is working out well. I may have to take a road trip to Baltimore for that Ravens game.(Although Ravens fan scare me..I may have to go with some nation members.)

Its takes alot to remain keeping emotions completely out of relationships.

And the only I know it works is having another on the side.

Kym – that was the first time I really saw Crumpler this season (I was watching from afar during the HOF game). What are they feeding him in Nashville?!?! I missed the play when Troy P got hurt – did Crumpler really fall on him?

BlowMe I agree they don’t. But he or any other man needs not try to tell us that a woman was handing it out to him like a dude over time and not getting caught without having HER DUDE on the real side.

I deny nothing. You asked was she my jumpoff (ie one night stand), thus to “jump off”. I admit my failure in applying the proper title (FWB).

But I deny nothing. My past (good, bad and ugly) is me.

Single Ladies/Guys:
Is it not hard for guys to date in Atlanta unless if they have a decent regular job and they carry some reasonable change in their pocket and drive a decent car?

females on the blog will say there are some date locales that dont need lots of money but is that really possible to pull it off if he broke,unless he got mad ryhme skills…

what u say ladies??

The younger (lol) me would prolly say no, I don’t care if a guy is broke I’ll love him no matter…. the maturing me would prolly run away as fast as I could… When I become officially single, the next guy I date has to have his things together… point blank

@Tazee Yes he did..Troy was picking up a fumble and Alge fell on him. His leg was turn at a funny angle..and big butt smash him. Thank God its only a sprain(dont say a word..PoppaG) I am hoping he recovers closer to 3 than 6 weeks.

Grace/Lioness..i wld think it takes way more time for the guy to get the date.

if i walk outside now and want a female,in 15 minutes i may have a number or 2 and possibly sme action this weekend(movie date etc) based on the confidence emanating from my pocket….

a broke dude aint got that mula confidence….dont u think?
