Their dating mistakes, but do you pay the price?

I think it was Abraham Lincoln that said “I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.”  This is especially true when we think about how little we knew about love, sex, and relationships before compared to what we know now! Would you say that you are smarter now?

Of course,  there are relationship lessons that some people refuse to learn. It sort of has this butterfly effect that can actually effect other people. I know I’ve been stuck on stupid before and it probably turned into a train wreck for someone else.

I’m sure that some poor soul has had to pay the price of bad decisions made by somebody else.  A cheating wife or girlfriend has made some guy super paranoid or bitter.  A possessive or jealous man has turned a once free spirited woman into a guarded person that doesn’t let anyone in.

Do you think that your dating mistakes has caused another person to endure challenges?

Do you ever feel as if you are paying the relationship price of somebody else and their mistakes?

Does this ever happen in a good way? Do you reap the benefits of someone’s hard work from your significant other’s previous relationship?

Kimmie – My only experience was my hs boyfriend that went into the military right after hs. We dated what about a year after he left.

SexyC – We’ve had the same dude selling bean pies over at the corner of Greenbriar and Headland Drive all five years that I’ve lived in that area.

Devout to say the least.

PR – You ain’t right….LOL I saw the puppy story on the news. She mailed a puppy in a box, no ventilation and a bottle of water. Umm you reckon he knew how to use his paws to pick up the water bottle…lol Too, she asked for the dog back.

Celisea – I dated one for about 2 years that was at the Air Force Academy. He was my “first”. Years down the road I dated an Air Force recruiter that a friend set me up with, for about 2 years.

Both were straight crazy, but I was crazy in love. Lessons learned!

My other reason for moving on from hs love. I had enough sense to know the chick a few barraks away was a much better option than the chick he left behind some 300 or 400 miles…

Thank goodness we can wake from dreaming. That was the only one but it seems like that was the thing to do when I first got out of hs. Yeah, I’ve heard about the crazies. I have a friend that married her boyfriend and went to Germany with his crazy behind. He beat the crap out of her. Her mama had to go over and get her…she was 93 pounds by then. She said she would come home and see wine glasses and stuff. Oh she’s told me horror stories.

Simple Man – You pegged. Okay Blackfoote, I know us women have blogged some crazy stories of the past but you are representing the men with this story. Most times the men are silent. Rarely do we get a good “I coulda had a V8″ moment blogged from the dudes. I think we should designate a day of crazy stories from the men. For every scorned or crazy chick, there’s a man on the other end with a story to tell…lol

PR – That story was sad but I laughed at your post. Some folks are a few fries short of a happy meal. Yes, she asked for the dog back. They showed the box on the news…wrapped in b’day paper…are you kidding me. A simpleton could have popped holes in the box. But who’s gonna mail a dog?

A bean pie is a sweet custard pie whose filling consists of mashed beans—usually navy beans—sugar, butter, milk, and spices. Common spices and flavorings include vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Variations can include cloves, ginger, coconut and more.

I change my mind I don’t want to try it. It may make me stand on the corner selling that newspaper to people waiting at traffic lights

Simple, LOL “Half dead”

One of my green moments when I was young involved my friends mom. I was in high school and I went to his house and knocked on the door, she opened the door and said he wasn’t home. But she was standing in the door with nothing on at all and watched me watching her. I ran home and spanked my monkey to thoughts of her nude. If I were more experienced and not a virgin I would have bagged her

Celisea, the puppy mailer is from Minnesota. LOL First rule of court Judges do not like doo-rags.
