Love: Is your heart an idiot?

What is it about love and romance that tends to drive out rational thoughts and behavior?  You can be a confident, brilliant person but once you fall in love you can tumble into a deep abyss of dumbness.

I read about a documentary by Found Magazine creator Davy Rothbart, called “My Heart is an Idiot”.  The title struck me as funny but I actually have thought the same thing about my heart at times.

When you add emotion and sex to any dating “situation” you run the risk of getting caught up.  Sure, you can try to pretend that it’s not happening, but it sometimes the dumb behavior starts.

You overlook red flags, you tolerate things you never thought you would, and then you somehow believe you’re in love.  Do you think that we do the dumb things because are following our heart?

What do you think you learned from following your heart versus following your head (i.e. more logic, less emotion) in dating?

Of course there are no guarantees that you won’t ever get hurt, but what is the safest option? Wait, is safe even an option when it comes to love?!

What is the most idiotic decision you ever made about love?

You seem to be a bit on edge trying to annoy everybody. You and the Mrs get into a little scuffle of sorts recently? The couch not as comfy as the bed?

MMEELLOO, are you a glutton for punishment? Now you was all sad and stuff and emailing different ones of us from the sidelines, all the while waiving. You back in and just showing your behind. You better straighten up :) Next time might be the point of no return.

And I never implied that the only way I gained experience/knowledge was through reading.

I just read…a lot…and I read on a very wide variety of subjects. And prior to my last move and receiving a Kindle as a gift, I had a shtload of books on many subjects.

And quite frankly, ANYbody who has read this blog, for any length of time, even if it’s the only reading that you have ever done in your life, has read about and discussed sex.

:shock: For real?!

have you ever used ice cubes while engaging in that area?

Yeah I’ve done that but I feel cheated just now finding out about the peppermint n halls n stuff…

“….what happens if you have a mate that has sensitive parts?” Wear a helmet! Therefore the smacks to the head won’t hurt. Better yet, he won’t be able to grab your head….wait, that might be fun!

Sometimes, that’s the only way you find out. It’s how I learned that if you use milk-based whipped cream and you don’t get it all off, that sht will have the whole room sour come morning.

, unless you’re comfy having the candy in your mouth at the same time, I’d proceed with caution.

A good swish of Listerine can give you similar effects…it wears off faster than a mint or anything else would. However, unless you’re comfy having the candy in your mouth at the same time, I’d proceed with caution.

Exiled – No we don’t have to all agree. There is nothing wrong with a nice debate or battle of opinions but I think we’re basically talking about you being an ass hole :lol:

It may be honest debate, but it’s the way you’re saying it. Pretty sure you’ve heard, “it’s not what you say, but how you say it.” We get you, but management won’t if you keep it up. Rein yourself in.

You know what, Exiled. You spit that crap now, but you were spitting a different tune a few months ago. You missed being here and most of us missed you and even petitioned ajc management to bring you back on. Swiss even fasted a few days in the hopes of getting you back on. He wore that stinking tee-shirt for months and this is how you show your appreciation by sticking your nose in the air to “management.” No disrespect, but you sound like a big bad beast here on the blog, but you were mild, meek wanting to get back on. If you want to stay on, then act accordingly and reel some of that in….that’s all!
