How will I know?

Whitney Houston, may she rest in peace, sang the music that many of us grew up on. Her songs are the soundtracks to my first love, first heartbreak, first restraining order (don’t ask) – and her voice got me through a lot of tough times.

I remember going through those emotions of being uncertain about a guy. I think looking back, that is exactly how he wanted it – uncertain. Have you ever fallen for someone who was not forthcoming about how they felt about you? It’s not the best position to be in and they end up having a lot of “power” in the relationship. If someone wants power in a relationship, that is a clear sign there is a problem.

You should not have to wonder or question how someone feels about you. When it feels like a big guessing game, it’s because someone is playing one.

How will you know when someone has good intentions?

If you are in love, falling in love, or are seriously smitten with someone, what do you do to show them?

Happy Valentine’s Day to those that acknowledge it!

For those who don’t…kick rocks Cupid!

@Lady?

Whitney went out happy and in bliss considering she had just puffed some.

I watched Jennifer Holiday on Piers Mirgan last nite. She seemed honest. She hit the music scene with Whitney same time and said they All sniffed at that time. Bobby!(yelling his name) had none to do with her sniffing issues. Chaka Khan said so too on same show.

Very candid discussion.

& I agree they need to stop with Bobby! He has much to contend with! it was reported he hasn’t seen his daughter yet! I have a hard time believing that but all families have dysfunctions and folks need to chill out a bit

Good afternoon you fine folk. Happy V-Day to all.

@Bluz ~ it’s hard in the beginning, but it will get better. Dance with yourself sometimes (it will make you laugh).

O/T ~ I felt bad for Rite-Aid last night. Walgreen’s parking lot was jammed packed and only 5 cars were over at Rite Aid. Took lil leggs to by a card for her little crush. As we were walking out the store, he and his mom walked in. That was too cute!

As fa as the topic “How Will I Know,” according to Cher “It’s In His Kiss”….

Happy side chick awareness day!

On topic, you will know when you know. There is no set way to know. For some love is real and forever…some are skeptics and keep their guard up…those will never know true love to the fullest.

Bluz, I hope you have a wonderful day. Do something fun and safe tonight.

Although issues arise I am happy to know that she is all mine. Happy Valentine’s Day to you all

Luckily, tonight, I have dinner plans at a restaurant that is donating 20% to a non profit that I’m involved in. Will be surrounded by people who love me lots! If I cry to them, I’ll have all kinds of hugs! :-) I’m glad I have something positive to do tonight.

aww naw purple – too funny!!! side chick awareness day. that’s what’s up. look at all the angles. the man with the side chick needs to look out for her today. the wife of the man with the side chick needs to be on her game. the side chick gets to stand up and be “proud” for this one day. wow! now that’s sharing the vday love.

also – purple’s comment about skeptics missing out makes me wonder about the folks who are in love all the time. in particular I have a friend who got divorced. post-divorce she had 3 or 4 “friends”. thing is she swore she was in love with each and every one of them. personally, I didn’t understand that and I still don’t.

disco, side chicks got yesterday or tomorrow as Valentines…just not today. Or they may have a dude who’s woman knows the deal and then said side chick will not get Valentines until this weekend. Vice Versa for fellas. I really don’t believe you can be in love more than twice in a lifetime. But that is just my opinion.

side chick day reminded me of marry your baby daddy day. yes. that’s real. or at least it was. it was some years ago and some non-profit was encouraging couples that were in long-term relationships, lived together and had children to get married.

picture this: s/o has sent flowers the last three years in a row. this year he said “i know you’re not big on this holiday so i’ll stop”. so the UPS guy just showed up with a boxed flower delivery and i actually got a little giddy, until i see they’re for my boss. :sad: as i’m signing for the package, in walks my honey with orchids, cards and candy.

ugh! i just hate it when he’s sooooo sweet! :razz:

disco, my first reaction to the “marry your baby daddy day” was :shock: . but yeah, if we’re talking about folks making babies in long-term relationships i say go ahead and make the commitment to each other while you’re at it.

@czB ~ that is so fabulous! I got flowers delivered today, much to my suprise. Inside the box were two cards. One read “To my wonderful wife, I hope this makes you smile as much as you make me smile. Love Always, Kyle.”

I kept looking at my name on the box, and back to the card knowing I’m no one’s wife and I know no one named Kyle. It took me a minute to find the other card. The other card said “Hope these brighten your day, Love Mayah!” What a nice surprise and I know her father had a hand in it.

have u observed or seen any flower movements at your office today that seem suspect..like it is a self delivery?

Or a remark that suggests home girl is not happy that v day is blank for her.

me-lo, there are only three of us in this office. i work with two older white women. i seriously doubt they’d have any noteworthy shenanigans going on.

but then again, who the he!! knows. *shrugs*

gentlemen, have you observed any covert tactics among your co-workers? dudes picking up cards, candies & flowers in sets of two or more perhaps? speed-dialing different numbers, always leaving the same tender message to a generic pet name?

just wondering.
