Too Good to be True

One of the tricky things about dating is figuring out who is authentic and who is not. It’s hard not to become a cynic after meeting the phonies and the crazies. When we actually the meet the totally normal, completely sane individual, we aren’t always prepared!

Have you ever met someone that seems like the ideal match for you? You are attracted to them and vice versa, you have wonderful chemistry together, and they even seem to have everything you’ve been looking for. Then doubt creeps in. The uninvited thing that makes you question if the person is too good to be true.

Why do you think we do this so often? Is there really such a thing as too good to be true? I have even been in a situation where I started to expect “the other shoe to drop” so to speak.  You know when you start looking for signs that the person isn’t as great as they seem? Most of the time, it’s not the other person that has the issue, it’s you! (ok, it’s me as well but I’m not alone, right?)

What is a good way to combat the cynicism in dating and relationships? Has anyone ever told you that you were too good to be true?

Happy Friday!

RAQI Maybe you were thinking of Tongue & Groove for the swing or salsa dancing earlier. They used to do one or the other on Thursday night.

MELO You might like the upstairs cabana area at SHOUT. Good music, drinks & views.

Ya know, Vagina and Penis aren’t dirty words! (Hmm Maybe that’s why folks opt against?) Say them to the next co-worker that passes by… Cunnilingus and Fellatio might be a lil murky, tho.

LOL @ throwing out “big words” as if you the only with a dictionary. Melo please. Its cool if you and “your boy” want to experiment. Just dont act like we are crazy when we notice your enthusiasm for going to a swing club with a dude. My grasp of the english is not in question, your sexual preference, however is.

The Queen may want to check to make sure she has all her gowns and that you aren’t borrowing her scepter, crown and sash when you and your all male “court” go out on the town.

See now, this pi$$es me off

The cops/DA/media are quick to publicly crucify these guys based on unproven allegations — posting their names, pictures, all the sordid (and fictional) details of the made-up attack — but now that she’s admitted that the whole thing was made up & she consented to everything that happened, they still protect her identity? I don’t know who should be more pi$$ed off about this, men or women who were actual victims of assaults…

Cookies and Popcorn for dinner. I couldn’t do it! Page your menu would give me a stomach ache. Cookies and grapefruit.

Melo – I try not to eat after 7pm. Many times I’m still at work at that time, so I’ll pop a bag of popcorn and be done with it.

Lunch is my big meal when I’ll have my protein veggies, etc. Dinner, if I eat it, might be popcorn. And if I have enough calories left in my day, I’ll add some plain M&Ms ;-)
