Bonnie & Clyde

I was having a friendly debate with my friend Mark about loyalty in dating relationships. I don’t think it exists.  As humans, we are self-preserving, self-serving people.  Loyalty extends about as far as it can until we decide that our own needs are more important than someone else’s.

He disagreed and said that loyalty is one of the things that people should be willing to prove in dating to lead to a relationship.  Mark and I  joked about how Bonnie & Clyde were known as the most loyal couple in history.

In some twisted way, the fact that she not only stuck by Clyde and covered for him, she  also joined in his crime sprees of robbery and murder. Are women expected to break the law to prove loyalty to their man, though!?

Do you think that loyalty is a realistic expectation in dating? Is it important to you when you are getting to know someone?

How do you know when someone is loyal to you? Is it something you can really prove or a feeling you give?

Do you think that couples have to “keep” their mate loyal?  What kind of person is more likely to be loyal? Is that the kind of character trait you can suss out in dating?

Good night everyone! In case you haven’t noticed, this is the “Quit” series:

“Quit making excuses about why you are where you are or why you can’t do what you want to do!” Stop w/the excused and start working on the solutions.

Bye!

When he started smelling himself… locking and/or slamming the room door >>> no door
When he seemed unappreciative… slept/lived in the garage all weekend in his pj’s. I’d just purchased him his first real bed, from bunk bed to pillow top queen size. I told him next time, the curb and I dare you to leave.

He never got a whoopin by surprise, one waring and next violation is a** beat’n. We didn’t even go round and round about it, he just bent over.

He’s 18 now, and I know he does his do… just don’t let me catch you. All in all he’s a great son.
