First things first, I want to say hello to Bert Weiss from Q100’s The Bert Show! Hi Bert! We were both at the The Gold Room last night for JEZEBEL’s Most Eligible Atlantans Party. He spoke briefly about Bert’s Big Adventure and I made my way over to meet him and tell him about our blog. He said he would check the blog out. Cool! Ok my fangirl moment ends here.
I will have share more details (pictures, interviews etc.) next week but suffice it to say I had a lovely evening. A lot of really cool things happened last night so I can’t wait to tell you all about it
I’m super excited to see Maxwell and Jill Scott perform this weekend. No way would I miss that event! There is one song I hope Maxwell sings, Fistful of Tears. We gon’ fight the war, we gon’ fight our fears. The song actually reminds so much of when I was in a relationship but felt the most alone I’ve ever felt in my life.
I wasn’t a needy chick but there were moments when I needed to be held and reassured. Isn’t that what boyfriends are for? He said he didn’t handle stress well and didn’t know what to do or say when I cried, so he left. Like literally bailed! Exited stage left. Who does that?! I’ll tell you who: Strollers.
Strollers are people in your life who bail on you in tough times. They see you in a heaping mess on the floor of life and they stroll on by. I heard this term on NPR radio once when they reviewed a book that described these kind of people as strollers. I thought it was spot on. My ex-boyfriend was definitely a stroller, an unapologetic one at that! I guess some people just aren’t built Ford tough and can’t take the bumpy rides.
What happens when you are dating someone and you are not able to show and prove you can be there for them?
What would you do if you were really into someone and you discover that they are completely unreliable in a crisis or time of need? Is that a deal breaker?
Is it really difficult to show some love and support to someone you are dating and claim to care about?
How do you know if your emotional needs (yes men, you included) are a problem in your dating relationships?
Is it true that men don’t like “overly” emotional women? I need answers people. I don’t want to end up with another stroller! How do you spot them?
