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.

what are the odds of Tiger getting it from Elin on sunday nite, if he wins the masters? He’ll be getting some. If Elin doesn’t give him any, I’m sure he has someone on speed dial who will.

aNSWER TO Melo’s question about tiger:

Very Very Very Slim

Something tells me that they only would “relate” to procreate.

Tigers has it first hand,the shortcomings of foreign wives.Hope other men are watching and listening!

Foreign wives are great: they can
1 cook
2 obedient
3 good with kids
4 they do laundry
5 they mop
6 they dont nag
7 they do groceries
8 they change baby poo poo,without telling u,next time its ur turn
9 they dont like just hangin in malls with their friends
10 they got old school values,just like grandma/gradaddy want

Problem! (only problem)

1 their psh skills suck!

Ask Tiger!

@Luvbug??

what day,satrday or friday?? Might go coz its the perfect weekend,its paydqy friday! :lol: Is she that good?

@Beautiful!??

She gotta be upset within reason coz if she denies him his conjugal rights,shes leading him back to those heiffers. Remember,in his interview yesterday,he said the rehab was no guarantee,he wont do it again!

Thats was Rich! :lol:

Melo – Tiger would know if she’s good or not. I died laughing when I saw the clip of her promoting it in a press conference…Gloria Allred then immediately announced that she will not be stripping.

I know you will be disappointed about that…on account of you liking smart women an all.

Carlito : It would be ackward and no it’s not a bad thing that I met them online.

The ackward part would be here’s my ex that I’m obviously “relating to” and here’s the dude that I dated but never “related to ” and he was hard pressed to “relate”

Lurker – Of course the current knows. I have nothing to hide with that. He asked and I told him. I’ll give him any details too. He doesn’t want to know all that tho (at least not from me :lol: )

The ex probably knows too, I’m sure it’s trickled down to him by now.

Melo – Which really proves my opinion on the whole Tiger thing. He has a problem & Elin traveling with him would not have made a bit of difference.

If he wins the Masters, to get some from Elin he’ll have to hop on a plane right after, cause Elin said she wasn’t coming to the Masters. She didn’t want to have to deal with all the papparazi.

I repeat my question from late yesterday Melo – Your so concerned that Tigers’ needs be met, what about Tiger being concerned that he’s not meeting Elin’s needs. I’m not talking about her cheating either, not taking that angle. What about men ensuring that their wives don’t go without?

If it was a set up, well…that just reeks of b*tchassness.

i had to ease back in and give ya’ll an update!!!

was talking to the new guy on the ride home

First thing he said was you know i got filled in after you left. The ex left right after i did apparently he saw my car, called on of the guys that works in the shop trying to find out who all was at the shop and decided to stop by and be nosey, So while new guy and i are in the back minding our business oblivious, he’s upfront going on and on about i know that’s her car you can’t tell me that’s not her car. Working his @zz into a tissy-fit.

bytch@ssness would be an understatement.

ay dios mio

excellent question! now the difference between Tiger and most men is that Tiger is a selfish M’fkr. period. he got it like that and taking advantage of all na na tossed his way.

I take it urent referring to “without sexx”"?
If so,there is no hint that Elin was being denied,she was being shared but not denied..do u agree to some point,seeing we havent had about her whinning and nagging an all.

Tigers’s apetite,i think,is on another level! Thats the real problem i see with some mature guys who never lived out there youth.

That was my second guess. It was 2nd just because of the odds of him seeing your car all randomly.

Or maybe not randomly… :shock: *Dr. Evil pinkie*

I am sure that Tigers women benefitted well from getting with him and Elin is benefitting more by staying with him. Selfish IMO, would be reaching orgasms with the women and saying “I’m Tiger Woods bi*tch” and just leaving” and Tiger just leaving his wife or not trying to get her back because he would always have more women and more than enough money.

Beautiful, very few men would be strong enough not to. That’s one reason why I’ve never liked athletes. They seem to make bad boyfriend/spouse material. Platonic friends, cool. Anything more, no.

do u agree to some point,seeing we havent had about her whinning and nagging an all.

Melo – Actually no. She probably is like any classy lady, not wanting to air dirty laundry even if she wasn’t. We wouldn’t have known about Tiger till the dirt was spilled. Folks private lives are just that, private. I asked my question just for the sake of conversation, cause all I hear on here is how women better step it up for men & never what men need to be doing. Women have needs too.
