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?

I already told my friends and family due to the current economic crisis everyone is to only give gifts of 20.00 or less(cause that is all I am paying) So everyone is getting a Snuggie.

I am guessing that even though the blog family is viewing this as entertainment. Someone is bitter, pissed off and feeling vengeful. You all log off at 5 everyday. Either “w8″ is pissed off planning some get back and reading this stuff, getting angrier by the post. Or some woman/women are hurt, venting and planning revenge on him. More than likely him because the women have taken their turn and he has yet to, that we know of. At some point everything was mutual between the parties involved. I really do not know, but now I actually think we may be causing more harm than good right now in the real world right now.

I wouldn’t mind having a Snuggie – it seems that the benefit of a snuggie over a throw is that when I want to read, my arms won’t get cold. And when I move around, my feet will still be covered. The downside is – it looks like an inconvenience when I have to use the bathroom. A MAJOR inconvenience.

With that said – I have a three Falcons throws (got all the same year for Christmas) and a Falcons Snuggie would complete the package ;-)

I cain’t look…I cain’t look!

The topic…what’s the topic? Oh being attracted to married men. Naw!…becaue as soon as I find out, dude suddenly looks like a leper.

People in general that are happily involved in committed relationships not necessarily married. The same goes for longterm….it puts a smile on my face everytime! Especially because the man’s there simply because he wants to be not because a piece of paper says he’s expected to be…just as much as the married folk wanting to take it a step further being binded by law. Either way, it’s the committment of it all…and the actions that speak so loud, that you couldn’t hear the words coming out of their mouths anyway.

I need a triscuit….bad. Just dayum!

Tazzee – I don’t think your feet really get covered. It’s really a blanket with arms. That’s the appeal folks got cold arms when they had to reach for the remote or were on the laptop. Now its’ all together.

Seems like using the bathroom would be pretty easy as you just lift up the blanket.

lurking – that is why this isn’t entertainment for me. These are people’s lives. And folks wonder why people don’t talk about their personal experiences on here…

IMO – if you aren’t transparent enough to share yours, you have no right to comment on others but this blog is like a big peep show where folks can comment other folks’ shortcomings while keeping theirs under wraps.

I know some may say – well they shouldn’t put it out there if they don’t want others to comment – but I say, why take so much pleasure in the pain, hurt, embarassment of others? What does that say about you?

It’s really sad to me – but hey, to each his own. I never took pleasure in shows like RHOA, or Being Bobby Brown either. I just don’t think someone’s real life is for entertainment, even if they choose to put it out there.

@lurking lurker whoever. All parties involved love this drama..that is why they are involved. You have the run tell that person who is playing both sides. The one trying to plead his case to anyone who will listen..and the ones who feel shame(cause that is what it is) cause they got caught up. Now the anger was on the airwaves from the start and is still on the airwaves. I am pretty sure those involved know how to contact ole boy..they have broken bread and did the humpy dance so all this acting brand new stuff is getting old. Matter of fact it was not W8 who brought the drama to the blog it was someone undercover who mentioned he owed them money who brought this all out. So all this spill over to real life. Hell from the looks and language of this they were in living color all along.

[Chorus 1]
I don’t want to move too fast, but
Can’t resist your sexy ass
Just spread, spread for me
(I can’t, I can’t wait to get you home)
Don’t want to come on too strong, but
I’ll play in you all day long
Just spread, spread for me
(I can’t, I can’t wait to get you home)

[Verse 1]
I… I can’t read minds, but I can read yours
I think she says that she wants to pour your..
your… yourself all over me
What you think? I could be wrong, but peoples don’t lie
And if they do, bu God, they must fry! (fry?!)
You know, like electric chair
The way you stare (yeah I’m there)
You committed a crime and I’m the victim

[Rap]
I’ve got an eye out for she who cries out passionately
We’ll do things backwardly, forwardly, horizontally
I’m too young to be settling down
quick to change my mind tomorrow
So now can I borrow your timid torso
More so than your soul, honest me gotta be how I roll
Fuck the rhythm, tuck the rhythm under your bosom
You’re the prism, Shirley Chislom
Was the first, let’s rehearse making a baby
Put in your order, I want a baby daughter
Dance on the tip of my tongue
Shake the clouds ’til there’s no more wetness in them
Tell your homegirls that you will send them
A postcard from 3000… HARD!

[Hook 2]
Don’t want to make you feel strange, but
Don’t let these words be in vain, so
Spread, spread for me
(I can’t, I can’t wait to get you home)
Nature knows that I want you, but
Not unless you want me too, so
Spread, spread for me
(I can’t, I can’t wait to get you home)

Tazzee – I think it just shows that it’s so common now, that one can get desensitized to it. I mean, am entertained by reality shows and this stuff.

You just gotta be smart. I was probably one of the most vocal saying that all the blog kickin it was probably not a good idea. Of course I got branded as hatin’ or something. I mean, you gotta think about what happens when you get familiar with folks you don’t really know.

Hope folks can learn from it, and I never want folks to be harmed or hurt, but some of it is comical too.
