Date Jesus

Atlanta’s own Chilli (of TLC fame) is the focus of a new dating reality show on VH1.  This is the same network that brought such shows as Tough Love, Rock of Love, and now What Chilli Wants.  Well, according to the trailer, what she wants is too much, which is why she has had problems finding the one.

I’m sure in some bizarro world of reality television, Chilli Photo: Gossip on This could actually have a problem with a dating relationship.  I’m curious enough to watch just to see if she struggled with some of the same hangups many of us had and may still have.  Finding random and nonsensical reasons not to give someone a shot.

Watching a few scenes from the show made me laugh out loud, especially when Chilli’s friend, music producer,  Missy Elliot said she should just “Date Jesus”.  Clearly she was implying that no person walking the earth could meet any criteria that is totally unrealistic.

However, for argument’s sake, if anyone could pull off having a firm grip on a dating checklist, why couldn’t she? The woman is beautiful, famous, and probably has a pretty sweet personality.  Why shouldn’t she have her bar set pretty high?

Would someone that was not in the limelight actually handle dating her with finesse and class?

I’m just wondering, is it about settling for someone you don’t want or dating Jesus? Isn’t there another door or A new option that we don’t talk about: staying unmarried?

Do you think that every single/uncoupled person who has not met the one should reconsider all of their standards? Is  waiting for  as long as it takes to find the one a selfish and unrealistic decision?

Raqi One thing I learned was that they only make you push during a contraction. I never knew that before…just thought they gave you time to catch your breath and push again.

SLIM – Now the hemmerhoids is lie of omission, I say! Not one of my friends had mentioned this pheonomena to me in all the years of my havin’ friends havin’ babies. They allowed (no, I will NOT take ownership of this one) me to focus on all those sweetie-faces till bout a year or so ago. I’ve gone from 3-5 in theorry to hmm maaaaaybe 1 and with a nice single dad to bring the head count up. lol

The childbirth gross out factor can’t be that horrible for men. Cuz they’re always ready to put it to the back of their minds to saddle up right at the 6 wk(?) mark. Bless their hearts.

I watched all my sons being born, and still think of it as the greatest experiences in my life. What a miracle! And, they’re my very own people! Having your own kids is a drag when they’re between the ages of 14-25, and even after that they’ll tend to ignore you — but it’s still one of life’s great experiences. Watching their birth into the world is incomparable.

PrincessNik, did you mention what size you were seeking? saw that and was like :shock: had to go back and catch up properly cuz i thought we were still on ‘dating standards and requirements’. carry on with your tv, golf & herding discussions.

SexyCool, i admire your strength. i know that was a very long time ago, but still, i can’t imaging what it has taken to keep moving onward and upward after such a loss.

now, some of the delivery talk is borderline gross folks. i’m just sayin.

@ Raqi- No screaming, just winces of pain—You had an epidural, right?
With my youngest daughter, I straight lost it when I went from feeling no pain- to everything in one push! My epidural wore off and man, I thought they were doing an exorcism on me!! The nurse had to tell me to be quite before I scare the other mothers. I told her, I can feel everything!!! I am not supposed to be feeling this! I felt embarrassed afterwards, but I was glad she was out. That’s a hurt I never want to feel again!

The whole Chili thing is comical, on a another note my SO is the sister of someone famous and she is famous because of her baby daddy. She is drop dead gorgeous and sooooooooooo financially good. Other than her own money, her child support payments alone are close to $100,000 a MONTH. She got 3 kids by him. Everytime we all go out I always think who can possibly holla at this chick or try to measure up? This dude is cool as hell and is a MEGA MEGA SUPERSTAR on this planet. Will she have to wait forever to see if this dude decides to marry her, will she just have to settle or date Jesus?

FWBabies… I’ve jokingly discussed this along with being a surrogate mom cuz apparently my nurturing spirit makes me mama material. But I won’t have a baby biz arrangement & cain’t’ imagine giving away my baby. I’m more likely to adopt an older child on my own if I feel financially stable enough. They always get overlooked when they’re terrible tweens. Well really, outta diapers.

@Dig That, I was traumatized the last time, It would really truely have to be exactly what you described and no baby-mama drama preferably they would all have the same mom. I aint saying never, but it would take a WHOLE LOT.
