Improving our blog community

I wanted to call a time-out from our fun dating discussions to address a couple of things about our great blog community.

For those of you who don’t know, the Misadventures in Atlanta blog has been open for more than five years. I think it’s important to remember that the purpose of the blog is to have respectful, entertaining, and engaging discussions.

Unfortunately, there are times when comments have crossed the line.  So, going forward you’ll be seeing this notice at the top right of our blog:

PLEASE NOTE: This blog explores dating and relationships in today’s society and includes comments from an active adult community. If you’re offended by our frank discussion, try our other blogs.

We strive for a respectful adult community. Being offensive or disruptive can lead to your comments being suspended, moderated or banned.

You’ll also find on our blog a link to these “rules of the road”:

This blog is for mature adults to discuss dating and relationships, to help each other or challenge another’s viewpoint.

Play, but play nice.

Among the types of comments that will get your posts suspended, moderated or banned:

  • Erotic passage(s) from adult material or literature
  • Bullying or threatening language
  • Sexually explicit terms thinly disguised with “creative” spelling
  • Personal attacks well beyond difference of opinion
  • Explicit sexual suggestions or innuendo
  • Linking to violent, racist, vulgar or otherwise offensive sites
  • Extremely long or off-topic posts that are potentially disruptive to normal discussion

If, after all this, you still don’t get it, check our visitor’s agreement.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. I know we all want to see our community continue to be a great forum we all can enjoy!

Good morning sunshines!

I want to shout out to everyone who checks in every week and contributes great dialogue and discussion. I so appreciate it. I think we will all enjoy getting back to normal adult discussion.

Now everyone can know what’s up and I can do what I have to do to keep it bearable around these parts.

I have a topic:

Do long distance relationships work? I find myself presented with that opportunity. Dude lives in another state, 10 hours away and wants to date me so see if it could lead to more. His long term plans are marriage and states that if things work out, we will marry. He has set up plans for us to visit one another. The ultimate ending would be me moving not sure I like that idea and it understood on his part that I will only move if we get married which he states he is cool with that.
What you all think? I’m feeling :-|

@I am – if you find someone that is worth it, you endure long distance for a agreed upon time frame and make it WORK. Nothing would keep me from the right man for me. I’d deal with it as long as I had a plan. Just brush up on your Girl 6 skills LOL

Dig That, I have been moving..so I don’t know…but here is my theory…… I think Wise Diva knew that I was to much man for her and instituted these rules so that she would not be drawn to my postings anymore. I am sorry that my sexiness has been a detriment to this blog. Wise Diva I have to go back to Atlanta three more times before I am completely moved. I will be coming down there alone….ahem…alone :)

Do long distance relationships work?

I am: I think they CAN work, however, both parties have to be willing to put in the work. It can’t be one-sided, one of you always being the one to go visit the other it should be equitable. I also think timeframes should be discussed up front. You as individuals know how long you are willing to pursue a relationship from a distance. There also has to be a level of maturity involved. Gotta be able to block out the nay-sayers who will be saying “you don’t know what he/she is doing over there”. Know your limits and your breaking points, if you know when you are in a relationship you need to get some daily then long distance isnt’ for you……..

I have free babysitting (son’s father
A job
and a mortgage (anyone try selling is this market?

Now if it works out and I move here are the pros

Marriage
I can work in my field and make more money
Not far from friends in new state since I have friends everywhere I go
and the best all time favorite: I’M AWAY FROM MY SON’S FATHER!!!! :lol:

As far as Girl 6 goes: we’ve upgraded from that. Girl 6 blackberry phone pic swap :lol:

I told him let’s take it slow and see what happens.
I don’t consider myself in a committed relationship right now so I’m just playing it day by day.
The fact that he’s making plans to make the first trip is a good sign.

Dating in the Dark – July 2009

This will be a new topic for me. I’ll bite.

Some of the questions asked:

How many of us could actually make a man or woman become completely smitten without knowing what you look like? I think everyone can. However, it proves nothing because you still have to interface with the person live. That’s the real test.

Can a person’s personality actually make them hotter than they are physically? Absolutely, I’ve been attracted to guys who don’t meet any standard of physical attractiveness. Their personality won me over.

How does that work? IDK. I consider looks extra, not the main course. If we match well in personality, the physical comes easier for me. I can’t work the reverse. Looks are nice, but I have to like and feel comfortable with you.

Would you ever be willing to date in the dark? I would be willing to get to know someone in the dark, but date? No.
