How do you handle temptation?

When you are in a relationship and you happen to hit a rough patch, it suddenly becomes easier to get distracted by other people. That harmless flirting starts to become a little more than flirting. The next thing you know, you are being tempted to get attention from someone other than you significant other.

It’s natural and normal to be attracted to other people when you are unavailable. It is how you handle it that makes or breaks a relationship. Some people use it as an excuse to get more attention they are missing. I think a lot of people are not prepared to deal with temptation because they didn’t expect to be tempted.

What do you do when you are involved with someone but you find yourself attracted to someone else? Does it mean you should break up and explore things with the new object of your desire?

When you are in a dating relationship, is it tough to stay focused on one person and build a relationship when you are tempted by other options?

P.S. Happy Mother’s Day!

Oh, btw, if you can chew and swallow solid food, you don’t need to be sucking on mommy’s boobs.

Slim – Plenty. She’s probably done plenty other stuff too, just not the real thing!

Brat – I heard about that. Only thing I have to say is weird. My mom said you stop breastfeeding when babies become “social”. That’s well beyond the social stage.

I will second that breast-feeding is wack past 2yrs old, and even at 2 it’s pushing the bounds of propriety.

However, that’s just my opinion, even if it’s based on what I fell medicinally.

The only person I know whom was breast fed until 4 (maybe longer) died of a drug over-dose when he got in college.

I also think “Bird Feeding/Regurgitation” is completely wrong. So much wrong with doing that…gross.

My sis stopped Bfeeding after getting her nips bit by my niece. She said her first reflex reaction was to drop & pop her but her better judgement did kick in before knocking her butt to the floor :lol: I think she fed for about a year

When you pull back the layers in getting to know people, you may find a whole lot of weird ways and thought processes. Stuff you would have no idea folks were into just by seeing them out and about every day. Never know what goes on behind closed doors.

See it would be just my luck, if I was stupid enough to fall for some “temptation” and leave my hubby, I would meet up with some weirdo. Some dude that was still going over to his mama for a “feeding”!

HST – I was going to bring up the bird feeding thing but i started feeling queasy just thinking about it. It’s one thing to maybe bite off a large piece of an apple or something to give to a kid but to actually chew it up and give that to the kid makes gag (and that almost never happens) :shock:

Is Tybee a crowded beach? For years I’ve just stayed in Historical Savannah. I don’t think I’ve ever decided to just go to the beach at Tybee.

Hilton – Booked
Folly – No beach front rooms left
Tybee – settling on hotel but on the beach

What up folks….HST, as for the St. Simons/Savannah choice, depends on your vibe…St. Simons/Jekyll area is really for the conservationist…the beaches are pure, some untouched period, may see be able to to view the mating of Sea Turtles and really more relaxed….if you wanna grab a Jet Ski, see some Dolphins and the like, go to Tybee,,,,I used this company last year, look up Hodnett Cooper Realty

i have one friend whose sister breastfed for so long that the other sisters joked that it was bordering on incest. I have on little cousin who, while not breastfed, was on the bottle until he was like 6. no lie. the kid would literally take his bottle to the fridge and fill it up himself.

Man oh man, why did they just tell me at work that some mothers will put their mouth over their kids nose and suck out the snot if the kid has a runny nose, as opposed to using that suction thing. :???:

leggs, i’m slack jawed. no words for that nonsense about the grown chick on the t!t. all i can say is eeewww!!

my cue to stop nursing my daughter was once she was old enough to say (quite loudly) “mama, t!t-t!t”. yeah. we were done right then. she was just over a year old. i weaned my son at about 6 months cuz the bigger he got, the more incestuous the whole thing seemed to me.

HST…the crowd at Tybee probably isn’t so bad yet. It’s a small, quaint town. I like it because I feel it’s not too touristy. You go there to relax and enjoy the beach! What hotels are you looking at? One I can tell you to stay away from is Rodeway Inn!!! Bad experience. Good thing about Tybee is that no matter where you stay, the ocean is only a block away! My favorite restaurant there is Stingray’s. The Breakfast Club is good, but the Sunrise has just as good breakfast food and is cheaper. The Sand Bar is a great hang out spot.

slim – I didn’t call it birdfeeding (or whatever) but I’ve pre-chewed food before giving it to my son when he was a baby. I certainly don’t see what the big deal is. I’m also familiar with the suction move. I also know how to mix up a batch of pet milk and caro syrup at a fraction of the cost of Enfamil or similac.

Ocean Plaza Beach Resort, it fits the bill but lacks the amenities/service I like. Seems like it’s in a good spot and I can get a Beach Front Balcony as well. Dining looks to be fair enough and if it isn’t there’s always Savannah. I just wanna bring one of my favorite cars – I need covered and secure parking.

The woman’s husband seemed numb about the whole thing. However, the groom to be had trouble with it. However, he still planned on marrying her. The daughter saw nothing wrong with what she was doing. You can’t ask a crazy person if they’re crazy because they don’t know.

SlimNu, I too am still traumatized by the face wipe with spit. My Mom went to do it the other day to my Nephew. I jumped at was like NNNNOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! My Nephew laughed, and then said “thanks Uncle, grandma don’t do that it’s gross”. My Mom blushed, i told her it was OK because she’s old.

The birdfeeding story is plain disgusting! That was my first time hearing a human did it to that extent. Thought only birds did that.

Afternoon All,

I know yall are not on topic this late but I’ll say this;
Temptation – I’ve met her and the bish wont leave me alone.She’s a stalker. hahaha

HST – Stop acting like a tourist. Call the Hotel you want to stay in. Strike up a conversation with a young lady (preferably) that works the phones. Give her your information and let her know the minute she gets a cancellation to call you and you’ll pay on the spot. I have done that numerous times (Wifey as well) with the last minute road-trips. It is more than 1 way to skin a cat.

Sorry, but that dude gets no sympathy for all the grief he surely is enduring now. If you’re not smart enough to avoid a chick who is literally still attached to the MIL’s tit, you get what you deserve…
