City & State or ZIP

I resolve to live it up!

It can be pretty profound hearing about “untimely” deaths and seeing really tragic events take place right at the end of the year. I’m normally pensive and reflective as it is, but when I take a moment to consider how life really is a journey, I begin to think about making the journey more meaningful.

Life is short. Life is beautiful. Life is precious. If anything this past year has taught me, its that you can plan all you want but sometimes you have to just enjoy life as it comes.

I resolve to focus less on what is missing because it takes away from appreciating what’s not missing.

I have a propensity to plan everything and I try to take small, calculated risks (Exciting, I know, it’s how I roll!) Throwing caution to the wind can actually be a fun thing (within reason?), so I would love to see what happens when I try it.

I can only make one dating resolution that I know has a high success rate: Have fun. That’s it. What about you? Do you think making resolutions work?

What does the new year make you think about?

Happy New Year ATL!!!

Last night I was asked to date a man who has worked for the Post Office for about 15 years and is about to buy a brand new home. He is a responsible man who has a great foundation that every single woman is looking for.

Well, we started talking about sex. He mentions that he wants it/sex EVERYDAY! Even on the days were she is sore. He also mentioned that if she can’t have sex because of being out of commission for a couple of day, there’s oral. I see this as selfish and got really turned off.

Plus, his sense of humor is kinda irritating. He laughs at himself, which are things that are not funny to me.

What am I to do? I didn’t say yes or no because the question came at me by surprise and I didn’t want to hurt his feelings.

Why why why me? I understand we all have flaws, but sheeeeesh! Would I rather have a man with no flaws or a man with no career?

Question Happy New Year to you too. I see you’re familiar with bootlegg blogging. lol I’d say the issue you mentioned has nothing to do with his career. He’s not sexually compatible with you, and you think he’s irritating. If these are dealbreakers, then I say keep it moving. Would you make an exception if he had a different career? Just wondering.

Am I throwing away a good man? He has a job/career, retirement, benefits, stability, etc.

Am I throwing away a good man?
Question Is he good for YOU though? No one you date will be perfect. You have to decide for yourself what things you can live with and what you can’t. There are lots of a$$holes with jobs and benefits. lol
