Dating: Actions speak louder?

I’ve met and dated some really “charismatic” men in my day. I’m talking about the smooth, slick, totally engaging type that could convince you of just about anything. Oh they can make you swoon for days. It’s all fun and games until all that lip service they served is not backed up by actions!

I don’t know if we really grasp the idea that actions hold the most value when you are trying to get to know someone. I think it’s normal for people to talk a good game but how do you know who is playing to win?

If someone doesn’t back up their words with actions, do you think they are trustworthy?

Sometimes it’s less headache to seduce yourself
mytwo Ha! That’s all in hindsight. Besides, I’m still not sure ol’ boy would completely agree with you. Well he might today, but tomorrow he’ll be retracting. lol

Had to hop on a conference call this morning but otherwise I watching movies and eating.
Celisea yeah I was working from home too. since school is out again tomorrow, it looks like I’ll be doing more of the same tomorrow. Cool with me.

@DreamsM ~ heck, he’s trying to retract now, but she won’t let him. He’s going to need the blue pill soon if he doesn’t get her out of his place.

LOLLLLLLLL at Willie D’s boy! That has to be the best ever! I have never heard of a man getting tired of the puddy and being mad that the woman wants HIM all the time. That’s what he gets! He prolly just thought he could hit and run…now he can hit it and stick wit it. LOLLLLLLLLL

As for my margaritas and daiquiris, I bought these little bootleg drinks that already have the alcohol in them. They aren’t strong at all but I’m trying to screw with my OWN mind and convince myself I’m getting live.

Good morning to all the housebound snowbunnies!

@Denise ~ I’m with you on that…mind over matter. Those packet drinks are ok, but you’re more than likely fooling yourself into believing you’re getting “lifted.” The feeling doesn’t last long. :lol:

@Dreams – Yeah, I am working from home too. They asked us to take our laptops Friday.

I don’t get all the people going crazy being at home. You’re not trapped and we had warning for this snow so you should have been prepared. I really don’t get it!

My hair is done, makeup on, yet still in my pjs! Thought I’d go in about 10, but now I’m saying keep my a$$ home. I have only one car, and I’m in no position to have the slightest mishap on the road. If some were to slam into me I might go snow postal and catch a case!

although i am most thankful that we are all healthy, warm and fed, the fact is i am bored to death. i cannot work from home. i’ve done all the housework, playing in snow, napping and movie watching a gal can do.

now, if s/o and i were snowbound together this could go on for weeks … no prob :wink: but it’s just me, the kiddies and the dogs. and frankly, we’re just about sick of each other. even some adult convo and libations would make this situation more enjoyable at this point. ijs.

@DreamsM ~ I know, I know. Funds low last week so I got only the essentials. Thought I had some “spirits” in my cabinet, but I was hallucinating! Phooey!

@czB ~ I’ve had so many kids here the past two days playing Wii and Guitar Hero, it’s made me comfy knowing my child was home and some of her friends here. However, I don’t this Guitar Hero nonsense (LOL).

@Leggs..that’s what I said..my baby is paid for..I am not worried about my driving but..other jokers on the road I am not so sure. I did say I would take a drive around the neighborhood to see if I can atleast get to the highway. Maybe go get some chips from the gas station. But all this one lane is open two lanes might open stuff..naww forget it. I am the sole provider around this camp.

I gave it a grade of “D”…I was not impressed. Anytime you bring in folks like Sheree, Terrence J and Meagan Good (playing the ho, of course) you’re not gonna have quality programming! LOL

Not a lot of character growth, and they were all feeling themselves too much.

What did you think?

Ared,

I think , Malik, and Kelly have lost their minds LOL. Tasha and Melanie were pretty much the same. I wasn’t impressed but i wasn’t completely turned off either, so we will see how the season progresses. Definately looks drama-filled. Hope it isn’t so over the top that it just becomes outrageous.

I am kind of liking our little bootleg blog.. oh yeah I checked out the game for the first time last night..as a person seeing it with fresh eyes I was one confused but someone filled in the story line for me and two I thought the acting was a weak..is the show a comedy or a drama or a dramedy or what? The storylines had alot going on…but I guess you have to know what’s what and who is who. Either way…I was not a bit impressed. So I guess it will be a huge ratings draw for BET…LOL!
