Playing for keeps: Long-term potential important?

The dating scene in Atlanta can feel about as solid as a Krispy Kreme donut some days. The fact is, there are plenty of single people mixing and mingling with each other. We meet. We flirt. We swap numbers. Yada yada yada. But how many of them have long-term potential?

Yes, I know long-term is not the sexiest word to those of you who have an aversion to commitment. It’s like this scary word that you barely want to utter around people who “are out to have a good time” or keep it light.

Well, dating “light” is great for a while, no pressure, no expectations. I have nothing against fun and light, really? I just know that at some point you figure out that the Mr/Miss Right Now can slowly become The One. Especially after you two have spent significant time together. You didn’t plan it, it just sort of naturally happened. So now what?

How do you figure out when someone has long-term potential if you didn’t really bother checking for it in the beginning?

Do you consider long-term potential important when you meet someone and go out with them?

Ideally, what type of person has long-term potential?

Slim, no need to hand it back just rub it in your skin. :)

Amazon, I think Swiss is just as astonished as I am about the anal discussion so we are both just being quiet. LOL

well he will have a strong role model and plenty of manly men in his life and he will not be hanging out with the women folk either.

Uh okay caveman. You know that kids are born with certain gifts, yours could be born with the gift of dance…on ice…:lol:

But seriously, you know that having “strong male role models” doesn’t amount to much in terms of gay or straight right?

so hearing them say it’s a girl was music to my ears…I got the exact type of child I’ve always wanted.

So if they had said “boy” you might have cussed a little in your head! :lol:

Amazon, no I don’t know that and I don’t believe that people are born gay either.

@SlimNU ~ you know PR gives “janky” gifts. (I like that word, but not sure how to use it.) I’ve only heard talking with you guys.

@ARed ~ I know we all say we just want our babies to be healthy…doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or a girl. Me, I probably would have said “awww, it’s a boy and K.I.M….” Never thought of a girl again.

Leggs, what is wrong with my pearl necklace? I guess I can only give it to her if there is some janking involved. LOL

@PR ~ the clasp is broken…what sense does it make giving a pearl necklace that can’t be worn? You probably knew it was broken when you gave it to her.

BTW, thanks for the E.O.D. {{ hugs }}
