Dating under the influence

Call it one of life’s lessons: outside influences should not impact your relationship. Some of us had to learn the hard way. Like the time you over shared something about what was happening and it backfired on you.

We all have well meaning friends and relatives who want what is best for us. Sometimes they may get a little carried away and interfere, which actually could make things a lot worse. You could end up getting bad advice from someone who really should not have been able to influence your decisions or behavior at all.

Have you ever been influenced by people to make certain dating or relationship decisions?

How much do you share and how much do you keep close to the vest?

Would you ever dump someone because they were not liked by people in your circle?

One of my friends is seeing a woman that does not get along with his best friend. It is starting to become a problem because the best friend and girlfriend clash a lot. This leaves him sort of stuck in the middle. What would you do in this situation? Play peacemaker or keep them apart?

@czB ~ PR yelled at me last week for not starting when I was supposed to. Told him I may be a free agent before all this is over, reprimanging people through a computer. He put some restrictions on my contract!

“For The First Time”

She’s all laid up in bed with a broken heart,
While I’m drinking jack all alone in my local bar,
And we don’t know how,
How we got in to this mad situation,
Only doing things out of frustration

Trying to make it work but man these times are hard,

She needs me now but I can’t seem to find the time,
I’ve got a new job now on the unemployment line,
And we don’t know how,
How we got into this mess
is it god’s test,
Someone help us ’cause we’re doing our best,

Trying to make it work but man these times are hard

But we’re gonna start by
Drinking old cheap bottles of wine,
Sit talking up all night,
Saying things we haven’t for a while
A while ya
We’re smiling but we’re close tears,
Even after all these years,
We just now got the feeling that we’re meeting for the first time

Oooooo

She’s in line at the DOLE*
With her head held high (high)
While I just lost my job but
Didn’t lose my pride

But we both know how,
How we’re gonna make it work when it hurts,
When you pick yourself up,
You get kicked to the dirt,

Trying to make it work but,
Man these times are hard,

But we’re gonna start by,
Drinking old cheap bottles of wine,
Sit talking up all night,

Doing things we haven’t for a while,
A while ya,
We’re smiling but we’re close to tears,
Even after all these years,
We just now got the feeling that we’re meeting for the first time.

Ooooo

Yeah…..
Drinking old cheap bottles of wine,
Sit talking up all night,
Saying thing we haven’t for a while,
We’re smiling but we’re close to tears,
Even after all these years,
We just now got the feeling that we’re meeting, for the first time

ooooo…., yeahh for the first time
(ooooo….), oh for the first time,
Yeah for the first time,
(just now got the feeling that we’re meeting…
For the first time)

Oh these times are hard,
Yeah they’re making us crazy
Don’t give up on me baby

I remember the first time I caught kissing a boy I was in either kindergarten or 1st grade. We put a jacket over our heads and pecked lol

Re 3 day old tuna fish…I can see that the pH gets off balance every once in a blue moon, could be from change in detergent, soap, diet etc…but for the most part, that area should not smell like leftover salmon heated up in the work breakroom for lunch. :shock: I hate it for chicks who permanently have that imbalance down there.

memory fails me as to my own explorations, but i distinctly recall the lil ugmo that sat on our couch to watch a movie and conveniently placed his jacket over his and my daughter’s lap with hands underneath. turns out they were just holding hands but damn if i didn’t nearly slap him. she still warns boyfriends before bringing them around me.

The doctor always told me not to do the douche thing unless advised so by a physician. Some cases it can make whatever is causing the imbalance to become worse by pushing it further up into the uterus..

Leggs – Man oh man, dry humping was the junk back in the day!! It used to be soooo intense especially being too young to really understand why it felt that great. Would dry hump so intensly that you would end up with an almost painful front wedgie and a sore pelvis the next day lol

Sass…trust…I *so* get that…but really, if I wanted them here at 130p, I would have said 130p.

And since I don’t have a reception area AND I’m in a secured area, them coming early is really an inconvenience for me.

My next interview, I am going to specifically request that they do not arrive more than 5 minutes early or…to at least not contact me until 5 minutes prior to the interview scheduled start time.
