How flexible are you?

If you’ve ever been on a date with an uptight, straight-laced person, then you already know how much fun it is to be around them.  It seems as if these individuals are not always aware that they come across as uncompromising and inflexible.  I’m not the type to turn into some doormat for a man.  Believe me, I can speak up and express my opinion without hesitation.  However, I am also able to go with the flow and relax too.

I think that while dating around,  you absolutely have to be able to keep a good attitude.  If you go around with hard and strict rules about every single thing then you are bound to run off a potentially great match.  How flexible are you in dating?  How do you handle sudden plan changes?  What do you do when you don’t get your way on a date?

Have you ever dated someone who was stubborn and set in their ways?  Is there a point where you have to either accept them for who they are or call them on it and ask them to bend a little?

I think when you have been single and on your own for a long time, your compromising muscle seems to atrophy a bit.  What is a good way to exercise it a little?

that rumor has been swirling on and off for a looooooooong time, i’m not sure i’m going to buy it just yet since not to long ago Ms. B said something to the effect of not ready to lose her shape or something.

Also you will never guess what throwback was on the radio during my lunch break

Beyonce and Jay just started claiming their marriage. Their kid will probably be starting kindergarten by the time they report they’re pregnant. :lol:

@ Leggs

Those who claim to be flexible really get on the nerves of those of us who really are…no wait, substitute “know everything” for “be flexible” and “do” for “are”…sorry ;-)

SCool – You are quite welcome. I’m pretty savvy at figuring out all the settings and locking ish down. Most of my friends come to me with questions. :lol:

No notifications come to my phone after a certian hour either. That’s another way to keep yourself “unplugged.”

Lady J, wooooosahhhhh bring it down a thousand Honey LOL

But seriously i feel ya, it is exciting when they start accomplishing. I am so ready for this school year to be done myself. I chose not to exercise my ‘perk’ of requesting lil mama’s teacher and the one we ended up with has no “parent interaction skills” whatsoever, she is just blaaaaaaah, but she is a decent teacher.

CHECK ME OUT…CHECK ME OUT…CHECK ME OUT

I wanna rock right now
I’m Rob Base and I came to get down
I’m not internationally known
But I’m known to rock the microphone
Because I get stoopid, I mean outrageous
Stay away from me if you’re contagious
‘Cause I’m the winner, no, I’m not the loser
To be an M.C. is what I choose ‘a
Ladies love me, girls adore me
I mean even the ones who never saw me
Like the way that I rhyme at a show
The reason why, man, I don’t know
So let’s go, ’cause

It takes two to make a thing go right
It takes two to make it outta sight
Hit it

Although I havent posted in a while, I have been lurking (mostly afterhours). First- Raqi, so appreciate your honesty and wisdom.
In terms of flexibility, I’ve been told that I often seem unapproachable. I’m working on reducing my expectations (but not my standards) and just have fun.

At RandyT:

Yes I can see her
Cause every girl in here wanna be her
Oh shes a diva
I feel the same and I wanna meet her

They say she low down
Its just a rumor and I don’t believe em
They say she needs to slow down
The baddest thing around town

She’s nothing like a girl you’ve ever seen before
Nothing you can compare to your neighborhood *****
I’m tryna find the words to describe this girl without being disrespectful….

There are some VERY high maintence women there that don’t roll like that either.
This crowd definitely exists in LA. You have to be careful though because there are lots of fakers (men and women). Honestly, most people didn’t have the funds to do the real high maintainence stuff in LA. LA high maintaninence is on another level.

Loose women are not exclusive to Cali neither are frigid to Atlanta.
lurker Now you know I didn’t say Cali were women were loose, or that Atlanta women were frigid. lol

On the topic of Cali endeavors, there are some great things to do in Cali. Wine country is great. So, are the cliffs overlooking the ocean in Santa Barbara. Sitting in a natural hot spring in the mountains at night, overlooking the valley. A desert sunset/sunrise. It’s the creative dater’s paradise.

You are very Lucky that her dad is so supportive. Some of these money hungry “baby-mamma’s” have dudes thinking its just about the money. Yes, i want you to help bear the financial responsibility of the child you helped create. HOWEVER, spending time with the child and being around and available to the child is just as important and should be equally balanced. Be willing to explain to the child that you didn’t come around because of your own idiocy not because you were not allowed or not welcomed.

ut oh didn’t mean to get up on the soap box today :oops:

You know what time, boo-yaow
I know it’s time for you
So grab one by the hand youknowhatI’msayin
And uhh, throw up that finger
Ay yo yo yo throw y’all fingers up!
Thug style baby, Thug style y’know?

Tell me baby are you lonely? Don’t wanna rush ya
I can help ya if ya only, let me touch ya
If I’m wrong love tell me, cause I get caught up
and the life I live is Hell see, I never thought I’d see
the day when I would calm down, you ain’t heard
I’ve been known to clown and Get Around, that’s my word
See you walkin and you lookin good, yes indeed
Got a body like a sex fiend, you’re killin me
witcha attitude to match right, don’t be phony
cause I hate when you act like, you don’t know me
I’ve be stressin in the spotlight, I want the fame
but the industry’s a lot like, a crap game
Ain’t no time for commitment, I gotta go
Can’t be wit you every minute miss, another show
And even though I’m known for my one night stand
I wanna be an honest man, but temptations go…
