Wanted by many, taken by none

I can understand how dating multiple people can become a ego boost. You’re in high demand, people are jockeying for your time, it’s all about YOU. It’s all fun and games until somebody wants more.

This is usually when the drama starts. It’s not always easy pursuing these mini “relationships” and then you have to decide how and when to narrow things down to one…or at least TWO.

I have noticed that the younger guys I meet say that they are told to juggle many women but it gets really old, really fast for them. I’ve seen a lot of people who prefer to date one person and see how things turn out.

Do you think single people are still playing the numbers game? Do you prefer to have a starting line up or work with your one star athlete?

What are the pros and cons to juggling multiple dates? What’s the best way to do it without causing unnecessary drama and using deceit?

@PR ~ I do think that is why some men turn into homosexual. The mental hold and the shame they harbor, then the desire to be with this person leaves them befuddled and full with angst (good place for this word). As time goes by, that guilty pleasure is all they have to associate with and. After the initial shock wears off, and the start of “mind control” factors in, one is left to believe that they’re normal. Much like “Stockholm Syndrom” where the kidnapped victime becomes close/falls in love with their kidnapper!!! Mind control at its finest!

M’Dee – I told her that. But she and another friend from Miami that has also lived in Gwinnett boonies for 10 years, are the same. If something is not right down the street from them, then it doesn’t exist! Get out and look! And both are scared to go to big, bad Downtown or even Buckhead!!!

@Celisea…I think that the Armenian and Greek ppl are tied together in some sort of ethnic differences…the Armenians were enslaved or something by the Greeks…the Greeks see them as inferior…Cher is Armenian

M’DeePhine – I think you’re right. I was trying to remember where I heard Baklava and Armenian mentioned and it was one episode of the Kardashians. I think Kim was being set up with an Armenian guy and was amazed that he hadn’t had Baklava as she said it was part of their heritage…or something like that.

It was very educational. I am taking what I learned and making better decisions this time around.

@WD…it may have been Athens that had the wide selection of Baklava…it seems to ring a bell…dang, now I want some Greek food.

@Kimmie…well then she will just have to suffer and whine…I understand that most ppl are territorial in their bearings and that they do not like to travel too far outside of a known and familiar comfort zone…so they can miss out on so much in the metro area…the ATL is one of the areas that you HAVE to explore to find things outside of chains and other big box entities…some areas have some very unique finds located specifically to that place.

The Greeks and Armenians, are tied together by land, history and religion. They have been co-existed together since the start of both of their ancient societies. One did not enslave the other. They fought together against the Turks

@Celisea…Baklava is a very sweet filo pastry dough with pistachio nuts…real sticky kind of sweetness…maybe like a pecan pie familiarity in a flaky pastry…sort of,kind of…maybe…lol

@ PR yes and also Turks/Greeks still have animosity. I remember my one friends got into an argument with each other and it was just a slew of historically rooted ethnic comments back and forth. All because I mentioned one’s nationality…. I can’t believe they still hate each other like that (at least in Europe they do)

@ celisea think of the chocolate turnover at arbys instead of chocolate its like a honey nut type of glaze I guess is the best way to describe it. If you don’t like it I’ll take it :)

@ Dreams if you tell a Greek person that it is a turkish dish they will go off and tell you how they stole culture from them due to the war. If you do vice versa you will hear the same.

@Purple Rain…one of my Armenian acquaintances mentioned that the Armenians were at some point subordinated by the Greeks…if I am not mistaken…and that the differences came out of the Armenians wanted some sort of independent nation existence or something…similar to the Ethiopians and the Eritreans…vague recollection though…facts maybe obscured by time and age…lol.

@Dreams…are they some significant similarities with the Turks and Greeks on food, etc…the crossover influence that between the countries????

@ PR my Turkish friend was dating this Armenian guy but Armenian dialect is understandable to Turkish so they would talk in their language. I just assumed he was speaking Turkish so one day I asked his name and he said Sammy. I said Sammy doesnt sound Turkish he goes IM NOT TURKISH!!!!!!!!!! I thought he was gonna kill me lol I felt so bad for assuming

to the best of my knowledge, the greeks and armenians were both subjected to ‘ethnic cleansing’ (gotta love euphimisms; pretty up the ugliest ish) by the ottoman empire (predecessor of modern turkey), officially recognize and affirm each other’s role in that event, campaigned jointly for wider recognition of same, recognize each other’s independence, maintain embassies and communities in each other’s country, partner each other in international organisations such as the u.n. and b.s.e.c. and have bilateral treaties regarding economics, military endeavors and science & technology
