Romantically Challenged

Romantically Challenged is a new show that will be premiering this month on ABC, starring Alyssa Milano, of all people!   I’m sorry but it is awfully hard to believe that Alyssa Milano is romantically challenged in any way.  Nonetheless,  I’m curious to see the “romantic challenges”  her character faces on the dating scene in this show.

After all of my misadventures (and yours too) I probably could serve as a consultant for the writers of this show.  I definitely have had those moments when I feel romantically challenged.  Just when I think I have found a dating groove (not as sexy as it sounds, believe me), I hit a snag with men.  Either I choose the wrong type or get confused by mixed signals.  That’s when I pretty much check out on the relationship angle altogether.

Maybe we are all challenged in some way though, right? (RIGHT!?)  I can recall a couple of exes that seemed pretty clueless about navigating a relationship.  It was exhausting at times! I didn’t want that role and the dynamics of this kind of a relationship is pretty awkward.

Do you know how uncomfortable it is explaining to a grown man that just because he ticked me off doesn’t mean I want him out of my life altogether?  Have you ever dated someone who needed to be guided about the inner workings of a relationship?

What do you think you learned from the experience? What did you learn about yourself?

What do you think makes you romantically challenged? If you are lucky enough to have it all figured out, please enlighten the rest of us.

Infamous I seriously doubt it, normally this time of day the ex is out on a lawnmower running his dad’s lawn service. I don’t however put it past one of the other guys who works in the shop. I ain’t sweating it cause i’m not screwing either one of em, the new guy and i are still in the getting to know you phase and the ex is,
……………… well the ex is my ex for a reason no recycling shall i do.

ARed the lunch invitation came about because last night during conversation he discovered that i work not far from the shop. up until that point he thought i worked somewhere altogether different. Not to mention he has a full-time job elsewhere.

So? Where you work is irrelevant. :lol:

Nik – I’d say there is no need to. If it was a coincidence then you’ll sound like McGuyver trying to get to the bottom of things. And if it was a set up, well, at least your ex knows that you have indeed moved on.

I’m just playing conspiricy theorist cuz I don’t want to play “movie quotes.” :lol:

“I’m just playing conspiricy theorist cuz I don’t want to play “movie quotes” That was funny too.

I agree, leave it alone for now…if he knows that’s your ex, you don’t need to say anything else. If he has any questions to ask of you, he will. No need to go volunteer what may be useless information. If he doesn’t know he’s your ex, tell him that and close the information hywy down!

Leggs, I’m scurred of those dogs too.

I wouldn’t mind having one of those wiener dogs.

Funny, I got an email from LiveNation announcing the addition of another Maxwell show on June 11. But it says Maxwell, with special guest to be announced. So, Jill Scott might not be the “special guest”. Glad I got mine to the June 12th show.

Nik – What I WOULD do tho is keep an eye on that one tho. Seems like he could be into “testing” chicks. Which is something one should watch for anyway.

Like, had you got all flustered when you ex showed up, the current would probably assume you’re still messing with the ex or not over him.

..back to the dating in Alanta equating to a small world:

I went on a few dates with guy that lived in a particular area of Atlanta.
We stopped talking for whatever reason.

Two months later I meet someone that would lead to a long term relationship. When he met, he lived about 45 mins away from the first guy I told you about. And when we first met, he was in the process of moving.

Take a guess as to where my ex moved to.
