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!

If your kids’ feet are dragging on the ground while sitting in a stroller, then they ass need to be walking
and if he can pack and unpack the damn thing by himself, he should just hoist it over his shoulder and keep on trucking.

Yeah Lady, my LTR (if it was even that) is moving to Russia. I want to do stuff to keep my mind occupied. Gumball is so close, I’m having problems sleeping with anticipation. Add that with my one shot at true love (seems that way) is leaving the country for years – I can not have an idle mind.

If I don’t hear from Folly soon I’m booking Tybee.

I just realized why everything is so booked – Mother’s Day. WTH, it was mentioned here several times, and I have a Mom. D’OH!

HST – Give it a try. My wife being the smart-azz that she is challenged me to sweet talk a receptionist into giving me a room that was booked. Usually the receptionists are not that well paid. In the end I talked our way into a Suite with a balcony (beachview) in Panama City and the chick even gave me the employee dicount that she had. I gave her a lil change but still came out on top. All the wife had to say was “I’m checking in right beside you and that bish betnot be smiling too much”. hahaha

Also check out Hilton Head – Marriot Beachfront Resort. That really is my fav getaway with the Wifey.

Willie, I’ve been digging for a Hotel for a minute. I’ve done all you’ve stated and some. It’s Mother’s Day Weekend – everything decent is booked. I will try to give some sugar to the receptionist at the Tides Folly Beach if I don’t hear from them soon enough.

I must have 4 or more stars.
Secure parking
Beachfront with balcony

Not the easiest to do on Mother’s day weekend. Just saying that, makes me realize that cancellations most likely aren’t happening.

HST – I feel your pain. Try the VRBO site suggested earlier (forget by whom). That usually works as sometimes you get to s/w the Owner of the rental personally. Whats your range (driving distance)?

Lady…come on! We’ll be at El Porton – 2640 Old Peachtree Rd # A, Duluth, GA.

HST…that is probably the nicest hotel there besides the ones that were converted into condos. It’s not a fancy schmancy town, but it’s nice!

At this point, I feel like I’m settling. I’m just going to go to my Cabin. I don’t know why I didn’t think of Mother’s Day. I kept thinking why in the hell is everything booked?

I want to keep it less than 400 miles.

At this point, I just can’t see it happening. Moreover, hanging out with families isn’t my idea of a good time either, so maybe it’s best.

@HST, czB is always talking about her being a brat. I think you may be her twin (no disrespect). I’m jut picturing you with your lip poked out bevcause you forget it it was Mother’s Day and all you can get sounds like a roach motel booking.

And, I’ve never witnessed czB being a brat, just that she calls herself one.

Bluzgirl, I mentioned that hotel to my friend and he told me I’d be disappointed – I’m all about fancy schmancy…

I’m now realizing, no matter what, I’m around families. Not that I wanted Spring Breakers, but young children usually get on my nerves. This weekend is all about the celebration of Motherhood. Moms deserve to have their day, so I’m acquiescing from my debaucherous plans.

I wouldn’t have thought that Mother’s Day would be a beach getaway weekend. :-(

Just an odd weekend for me trying to get last minute reservations.

5:20 ish? It would be completely irresponsible for me have a drink and drive one of my cars, but some chips and food sounds good. Do you have some single GFs coming? I don’t want to be the oddball who’s single…

well. you’ve seen shades. :grin:

yes! do come out for a drinky-poo, hst. the closer it gets to 5:00, the more i know i NEEDS it.

bluz, i was kinda wondering about that choice for a mother’s day getaway too. probably lots of folks going home to be near mom and taking up the hotel rooms.

HST – As the sole member of the Male blogging community (MLB). It is your duty to provide a scouting report on all the female bloggers in attendance. We have a scouting report on Leggs (if she shows ) and Lady but they need updating. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, take out all biases and just just report the fact sir. Also, it would help if you got the info before drinking. hahaha

Blu – nothing bad at all. No worries. You are about to get your very own page in the MLB blue I meant handbook.
