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?

Leggs – Take these scissors and cut a slit where you snagged your skirt. That way, it’ll look like it was supposed to be there anyway to show them legs ;-)

Sassy – Well, I saw an episode of that show the other day and it was about this chick that pretty much stays aroused all day and she has to always ‘take care of it’, not for pleasure, but to relieve the pressure of her constant arousal. She didn’t want to disclose how many times in a day that she has to ‘take care of it’ but the doctors said it can be anywhere from 20 to 50+ times a day a person has to self-stimulate. I would definitely NOT want to have that issue.

Then they had this other chick who was basically a sex addict. She talked about how it got so bad she even ended up hanging out in crackhouses, not to smoke crack, but for the sex.

@SlimNU ~ re: slit in your skinny jeans. You may be too young to know this, but we had jeans and pants where the slit was thigh high. I thought those were the coolest pants back in the day!

LOL….@Slim
I would be embarrased to death, but there been occassions and a lot of guys can say it has happened in some of the most inappropiate times. One time I was in a meeting with VP’s and one them had a tight skirt on like the one Leggs wearing. My boss introduced me and asked me to get up and make a statement, I played like I had hurt my legg so I couldn’t get up, such an awkward feeling. After the meeting my boss said she didn’t notice me limping when the meeting started, gave a little fake smile and my face blushed.

Slim Nu I’ve seen that show also and remember the episode you’re speaking of. That particular woman with the constant arousal issue was something I hadn’t heard of before and I’m soo glad it ain’t me. That other chick that hung around the crack houses for some wood really chanced her a$$ by doing that. If that was all she wanted she should’ve gone to the mall/club/strip club/hell Walmart and gotten some…and a better variety,too..

I automatically wondered if one of the Africans from yesterday left it on his doorstep as part of the wedding dowry

Yes he left that and those beaded necklaces to wear with it…
