Blame Angelina Jolie

There has been actual research on so-called “mate poaching”.  They found out that a lot of single women aren’t exactly hunting for other singles. Sometimes, they look for the coupled up men and “poach” them away from their current relationship. It’s like the Angelina Jolie syndrome because she supposedly began a relationship with Brad Pitt while he was married.

The results of the research: “Single women were more interested in the man when he was described as attached (90% interested) than when he was described as single (59%). Men showed no difference in interest between a single and attached woman.”

The thing about these studies is that don’t leave much room for the variables. It’s interesting nonetheless, to see the “scientific” analysis about why women are attracted to men who aren’t available. What are your thoughts?

When you meet someone you are attracted to, is it more appealing when you find out a person is involved with someone already? Have you ever pursued someone who had a significant other?

Have you ever been involved with someone and met somebody else that you felt you was the person you were meant to be with? How do you tell the person you are in a relationship that you are in love with another person?

@SexyC, I had one sign that told me something wasn’t right. I will say this and I’ve kept this to myself. He would post about how he’s always “dapper” when he steps out, from head to toe. Said he never misses a beat. Well our one and only meet and greet said something different to me. The black suit he had on was wrinkled (I hate wrinkles) and looked like it came from K-mart even if it hadn’t. There wasn’t anything “dapper” about him that night and that stood out for me! I can see that suit like it was yesterday! That’s all I have to say on the situation.

I really hate bright red lipstick on a dark skinned woman.

Add bright red nail polish and it gets uglier.

Is it just me??

What’s cooking at the CDC?

Everybody is totally consumed with the H1N1 vaccine trials….we’ll be getting the shots ourselves in about two weeks but I’m not sure I want to. I’ve never had the flu and have only gotten a flu shot once so we’ll have to see how that plays out. I may just get the regular shot and leave the new one alone…I haven’t made up my mind yet.

I though ARED was a part of the W8 cut, surely she knows something since her & Page was so called BFF, funny.

Ahh…here we go.

Nope. Not part of it at all. Page is my BFF cuz she cooks Mexican food. Like I’ve long stated on here, I have my own life and own friends. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t intersect with others, but I’m always on the fringe, never a main player.

Oh, but do I know more than what’s been posted on here. Yup. But it’s all just gossip and doesn’t involve me in the least.

Do better, sweetie!

Sassy – I’ve never gotten the flu either…never had the shot. They are administering it (influenza shots) here at work in the Health Center but i have reserves about that shot.

Same way i feel about chicken pox…never had it…don’t want to see what a vaccine would do to my immune.

I will also NOT be taking the H1N1 shot and am leery about taking the regular flu shot. The one time I’ve taken it I got as sick as I would have if I’d just had the damn flu.

Dream my bad…..it’s like a reflex or sumthin’.

Cameeli I understand about the shot,I only got it the one time I did b/c it was here at work,it was free and my older co-worker TOLD me I was going to get it so she took me with her. My younger sister is a nurse and she got the flu shot and it made her kinda ill so I advised her to defenitely NOT get the H1N1 shot.

‘Pimp of da Year’??

Dude is single and playing 2 or more chics at once,last time i checked has real honor in playadom.I wldnt hate dude on that.
My commiserations wld go to the blog chics,if any, who got played on the finger like a yoyo.
The only real “blemish” on dude maybe the money thing,if true.
Now,as a former hoe myself,thats one thing i neva did,feed off a woman’s flow.
Infact,i fed chics on pork chop and steak on my dime.But thats kinda old,when playas were real gentleman too!

After having the flu a few years ago that resulted in me aching, throwing up for two days straight, getting dehydrated and spending a day in the hospital I get flu shot. I have heard of people having a bad reaction to it but I haven’t yet.

Now this new one, I don’t know.

Sassy/SCool – I have never had the flu or the flu shot and I dont think i will be participating this year either. Everyone I know that has had a flu shot has gotten sick. Im even weary of allowing Lil Mo to get one but I would rather be safe than sorry with the kid.

Raqi – care to share some of those chicken & dumplings chica?? Havent had that in ages!

Dream_n did it ever occur to you that Lioness may be in hiding with few other ones? As a matter of fact the last time she was on here was when so called blog regular called her out on some factual information. Though she never replied to it. And by the way blog regular, that’s not just hearsay. That there is the truth. Yeah, I caught that. Like I said, some of these women got what they deserved. If they would just pay attention alot could have been avoided. Shaking my head.
