City & State or ZIP

What’s the worst that can happen?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to throw caution to the wind and just do whatever you wanted to do? No risk/benefit analysis, just following an impulse and do what feels good. Maybe it could lead to a new experience or a new romance!

I’m cautious with most things and I certainly have not been accused of being impulsive about dating. Maybe it’s time to switch things up, though. What’s the worst that can happen if you let your impulses dictate what you do? Would that be a brilliant idea or a slightly insane thing to try?

Sigman Freud theorized that the human personality is driven by the Id, ego, and the superego. The Id is the “irrational” part of our personality. If this is true, then my Id is all dormant! Rarely do I get irrational about dating, but maybe it’s time I did.

What’s the most impulsive thing you have ever done? How did it turn out?

Do you think our overly cautiousness sometimes cuts us off from experiencing something (or someone) important that we should really experience?

I have been known to take a wild risk or two in my day…hehehe…there are just some moments that dictate throwing caution to the wind and letting our comfort zone blow…as long as we ain’t talking life-threatening nonsense and such…otherwise, every now and then life needs an exclamation point thrown in…indeed.

Hey Leggs…how goes it????…hope all is gyud…mayne, ain’t been to this blog in some time…geesh…seems like a few minutes or such.

Interesting happening….ran into the “latino love of my life” from 25 years ago about 2 weeks back…been chitchatting and hung out once…funny, while I have great appreciation for the love we shared then and all that I was able to gather from it to learn, live and grow afterwards, blah, blah, blah…one thing is for sure…like BB King said…da thrill is gone…hehehe…for some reason it plays out better in my head still…lol

Not shooting the message. Scenario: Broken Stall Door:

Me: walking into restroom toward stalls and sees someone on the stall as I pass the mirror.

Me: pivot and walk back out the door and go to another bathroom on another floor!

Anothe Scenario: Already at sink flossing:

Girl: walks in and uses the stall in front of me w/o closing the door.

Me: Thinking to myself, hey, I don’t recall hearing that door latch close. Close eyes, walk toward front door and leave!

Simple?

I don’t know but all I know is,if it were me in the bathroom to pee,I walk to the urinals first,pee,wash my hands then get the wipes to wipe water off.

Getting the wipes first may suggest u were pleased while sitting at your desk so u going to the restroom to clean up but pretending to pee or worse, u got some issue medically!

@Leggs…it was not that bad…the space for a good friendship still exists…but not any major rekindling flame…at least not for me…hehehe…mayne, he sure looks like 52…gray hair and mustache…handsomely aged face…but me…still look like I did dayummm near 25 years ago…lol…according to him my face is still the same…think it blew him away…and it was nice to really be able to put an actual point of reference on my reflection for how much I have grown over the years…the encounter made it more tangible, so to speak.

Zulu – Just thought I’d give you a heads up. I know you are 100 with your masculinity and all that but it is rather shall i say suspect. Sometimes I know sometimes it gets lost in the translation but you just dont do that.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES shall a Man mention, think about, discuss another Mans wang or nether regions. Just aint right i tell ya.
