Unhealthy relationships..literally

It’s so funny how you start dating someone and take on some of their habits, quirks, and lifestyle. You begin to share the same behaviors, some good, some not so good. Sometimes you even become influenced by them. It’s like sexy peer pressure.

What happens when you start dating someone and pick up their bad habits? For instance, my friend Brad hated cigarettes. He meets Gina and suddenly he is not only fine with cigarettes, she has him smoking cigars! The things we do when we are blinded by love, right?

Have you ever noticed a bad habit you picked up after dating someone? Why does it seem as if we become so impressionable when the person we are seeing starts to influence our lives?

How do you know if your relationship is unhealthy and how do you handle it if it is?

Kym: That is hysterical!!! I needed that laugh today, thanks.

BF: It’s good to know yourself. If browsing is not your thing, it’s better to say so up front. My mom used to always drop my dad off in Sears in the tool section and come back for him later. :lol:

I will grant a fellow a pass on shopping BUT I must admit I do LOVE a fellow who doesn’t mind shopping AND is actually helpful during the process.

Speaking of shopping, I received an invitation and a pre-approved Von Maur card for their grand opening at North Point. I’ve never been in a Von Maur…anyone familiar with them?

I’m not against going with you, and I’ll help out with anything you choose. After about an 1.5 to 2 hours I’m sitting in the middle of the mall I aint cool with that.

Seriously though if I’m hanging out with a couple of ladies, there will be specific “before we go” questions such as what exactly are you looking for, how much time (couple of hours) and if we end up going too long, (if I’m driving) do I promise to cut the time and leave? It’s not like I’m spending and spending and spending. I just need time to really find something that “clicks” or jumps out at me. Otherwise I prefer to go by myself.

By the Holidays, that’s fast they’ve been preparing to leave for the past few months if they are coming home by then. They are bringing 10 billion dollars a month back home, we need it too.

POTUS will still catch it. Bringing troops home for Bush’s daddys’ war is one thing. The very next skirmish/bomb in Iraq will have the Right saying we needed to keep some there. Can’t win for losing.

Wouldn’t surprise me if the Rebels are freezing his body to bring it back to Tripoli so they can do a public humiliation on his body.

BF~ yesterday a brotha called the Boortz show and tried to tell Neil about Obama foreign policy / actions accomplishments. Boortz cutted him off and then continue to call the president an idiot.Unfortunately, there are millions of people who agree with Boortz and will never, ever give this president any credit.

My advise to President BO..stop worrying about gettign credit and start getting even…he needs to be more gansta..He let Rahm get away and back to Chi town so now..now he is flying solo in a way. Rahm..him I like..he cusses folks out..gets results..Republicans called him a thug..but they respected his crazy.. that’s how DC works..they knife you..you shoot them..

I’ll believe complete troop withdrawal when I see it. US Troop strength in Iraq has been steadily declining, but buildups in Afghanistan make up for it — and that’s where all the terrorists were/have been/are, they only went into Iraq because we ousted Saddam Hussein, and were there is such significant strength that we attracted them.

Troops aren’t scheduled to be out of Afghanistan until 2014, and I’ll believe that when I see it.
