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!

Jake – Daaaaamn you came in banging I see…lol

I think the excitement that surrounds holiday’s, birthdays, V-day etc is you are usually in a good mood during these times, especially if you have a special someone to share it with. So you’re in a good mood, you’re happy and happy people like to get it on. Ever notice that sometimes the sex is better on those special days? (and even more so if it’s sloppy drunk humping) ;-)

lady – re the roland letter. am I the only one who hates fake A apologies? I’m all for a sincere apology but an apology just for the sake of political correctness or smoothing something over – whatever. and for the person/group with the hurt feelings that is willing to accept a fake A apology, I feel like they have bigger issues. folks need to grow up, man up, toughen up and deal. I can’t stand anybody whining about their hurt feelings. I’ve received fake apologies from folks and really and truly, apology or not, I never really effed with that person the same way again. now if I think you meant it we might be able to work past it and move on.

sorry for the tirade but like I said – I can’t stand fake apologies. (disclaimer: and by no means am I for or against roland – I’m not even caught up on what went down with that situation).

Hey Slim, why tip-toe in, when there is door in front saying kick me!!

Disco-As for Roland, the whole issue is bull, he made a comment about the Beckham undie commercial, essentially saying that if a dude at your SBowl party got excited during that commercial, you should slap the ish out of him…is it suggestive, Yes, is it hate speech, he!! no, and Roland should stick to his guns….and on another note, FuG Tom Joyner!!!

jake – that’s the gist of what I’ve heard through word of mouth but I didn’t read/watch any news to confirm any facts. I, too, agree with him and his statement and even if I didn’t agree with it I don’t think that it’s offensive. gay folks (and their support groups) ought to know by now that there will always be folks for them and folks against them. they need to get some business.

by no means am I making this about manly men but I am taking into consideration that a lot of men are homophobic whether they own it or not. taking that into consideration, even when they are accepting of their gay friends/family members I think there’s only so much they can take. I think swooning by a gay male at a superbowl might make them uncomfortable. sure, that’s more their problem than the gay man’s problem but I get it. I’d also assume that most men don’t want women (like me) at superbowl parties swooning over men either. not that it’d make them uncomfortable but I’m sure they just don’t want to hear all that “so and so is fine”. it’s not the time or the place. just my opinion.

Here is a cleaner version blog police…I think the LBGT community should be treated equally and respected by all, however; the projected outrage that comes from the said community is misplaced in this case and many other. Treating one community equally should not mean that another community is not allowed to voice their opinions.

Beckham commercial is/was for the ladies. If a dude liked then then yeah he prolly gay. What roland said was just that. Whether he meant it one way or not is besides the point. If you are gay then you think he was talking about you (rightly So). Gay folks got a right to complain about anything just like any other group. it just so happens they have the PC clout and the $$$ to either force change or cause mayhem. To me it is not that big a deal.

I didn’t watch the superbowl and haven’t seen any of the commercials. I did see the david beckham H/M print ad in sports illustrated and I remember commenting that I thought $14.95 (I think) was too much for those little cheap looking skivvies.

willie d – re the PC clout. that’s just it. I don’t think joe blow the average gay person is even tripping off of it. these daggone interest groups just like to keep up mess.

@czB ~ I too thought the commercial tastefully done as well.

@disco ~ I understand what you’re saying, but it seems like this Roland fiasco has grown into something it shouldn’t have.

@WillieD ~ of course the commercial was made for women.

the commercial can/should be shown anytime and on any channel that their studies show they will reach their target demographic.

if you find it popping up often while you’re watching the tube, you might want to rethink your choice in entertainment. you may be watching too much dr. phil or project runway.

kimmie – the only difference is that the “homophobic men” wouldn’t take issue with the half naked women and their ability to get guests excited. heck, they wouldn’t even care if the female guests got excited. they might even be willing to forgo the rest of the game if that happened.
