Single life: Summer is flirting season!

It is officially flirting season! I don’t know if it is due to the relief from the insane pollen count, the temperatures creeping up, or the fact that we are wearing less clothes. Summer time is the right time to get your flirt on.

I get approached more during the summer months, even when I am not even thinking about men! Guys see a little more skin and it’s like they are more compelled to make their moves. It doesn’t have to be at a bar or even at a social gathering.

According to the dating experts (umm not me, obviously) this is the best time of year to relax, paint on smile, and make yourself available for maximum flirting!

So, what are the best places in Atlanta to put your flirting muscles to work? I want location names and addresses, people!

What do you do if you have a small window of opportunity to flirt with someone and you want to get in and make a great first impression? Do you start with a joke? Ask for help? Do you recruit friends to be your wingman or wingwoman?

I admit that I have resorted to some crazy tactics before, like the time I “accidentally” bumped into a guy. It was part genius – part stupid. If I hadn’t nearly toppled us both over, it would have been genius.

What lengths have you gone to in an attempt to get your flirt on:?

Thanks for feeling the need to clarify “fire and forget.” Cute.

BF – Well we don’t know if all Kevin wanted to do was fire and forget because she didn’t give the man time to do much of anything. Off the rip she exposed her crazy behind…she felt guilty about her one night stand romp but jumped to crazy to let homeboy know that’s not all she wanted to be known as. So even if he did want to hang out with her again, she blew it. TURN OFF

She exposed herself to being crazy in the first two texts I believe when she accused him of lying after saying all he had to do was paperwork and couldn’t understand why his evening was already full.

Kevin sensed danger.

I never knew that I was walking the line
She called my house and said I have no more time
And don’t you pretend you never did me before
With tears in her eye she came right up to my door
She so dangerous the girl is so dangerous
Throw away my money
messing up my time
You can’t call me honey
I’m playing hard to find
You can get no more
So get up off my door
Cause you’re no damn good for me

dan – I was kidding. I’m not very good at masking my crazy. it’s a constant companion that I try to keep pacified. I tell guys about crazy up front and it’s likely he’ll experience some level of it long before I get around to making “ooh ahh” sounds.

On the flip side and to be fair, if you don’t want to deal with crazy then don’t bring it to yourself. For centuries folks have discovered free has an underlying price to pay. Yeah I peeked over from my phone and saw that chain of crazy but what man haven’t learned only a few select really can play the hit and quit? When you dabble with that kind of stuff, you eventually pull a nut. Maybe next time Kevin will think twice. Yeah she’s crazy but Kevin knew, playing this kind of sport, all the possibilities. Crazy ain’t never ruled out.

Crazy has a certain feel..some guud guud

So initially a man wanna hit and quit but once u dabble..the guud guud pulls u back in..

It become a perpetual ‘one more time then I’m done’

:lol:

That’s one attribute about crazy some us men know…

Every positive in women always comes with some negative and vice versa

There’s nothing inherently wrong with ‘crazy’; and there are levels and we all exist on some level of it.

You have to learn, unfortunately by trial and error, the level of crazy you can deal with.

And the signs – the crazy eyes…laugh…behavior

Then make that decision

SlimUno ~ I think cray is being used in the wrong way. If it’s shortened for crazy ok, but if it’s now popular because of the lyrics in the song, then it’s used wrong, because I believe the song is talking about the Cray Brothers.

Blackfoote – Absolutely.

Mmeello – But by a certain age, you should know on the scales, crazy is going to outweigh everything…..your high, good good, yum,yum….all of it. And not high as in controlled substances….lol But if kicking yourself with your own leg repeatedly is what you need to learn, make sure you’re wearing a good steady boot.

Some folks like crazy. In fact, they wouldn’t know what to do with someone that wasn’t crazy and liked to keep up drama. They claim it adds “spice”. That’s why a lot of times I really don’t feel sorry for folks in volatile relationships, especially men. They’ll holla about what a crazy beyotch a woman is, but they ain’t goin nowhere. I remember a few years ago on this very blog a dude came on talking about his brother’s crazy wife and how he had to drive to another state to bail him out of jail cause wife had started a fist fight and then called the cops on him, saying he hit her when really she hit him and he just pushed her off to defend himself. The blog dude was talking about what a good man he was and all the shenanigans she put him thru.

How about they stayed married and even had another kid together. When he told the blog that, I in so many words told him could have kept that cause he wasn’t getting any sympathy from me.

Spice on!

kimmie ~ there are plenty of people who can only exist with crazy and drama in their lives. I had a coworker who told me quite a bit about her life. She and her then husband would fight like two guys were fighting. I was amazed and appalled that she stayed (but who am I interfere in another’s marriage). I listened and kept most of my thoughts to myself. I quickly realized that she thrived on this messy relationship and new no other way. Same gal who told me she stood in front of her lover and let him spit in her mouth. I’m gagging typing this. Who does that????? Right up there with golden showers. BRB….

Leggs – Yeah, that’s disgusting!! But yeah, when folks are whining about all the mess, I just listen and don’t offer anything one way or another. If you didn’t like it, at the first sign of crazy you would have been gone and we would be having a different conversation!

ex – no sir on the light skin. I’ve never had a light skinned day in my life. you can peel a few layers off of me and still won’t get to light skinned. lol.

kimmie – I’ll claim crazy but I won’t claim dramatic. I’m of the “don’t start none, won’t be none” camp. my crazy is of the violent nature in the sense that I’m a fighter. I’ve also had a few instances of property damage but that was way back. lol. back in the day when I was the baby momma from heck I fought dude’s sisters, girlfriend and dared his momma to come outside once. she didn’t. that’s my kind of crazy. I don’t have time for that domestic violence type mess.

disco – LOL!! You know what? I can respect that “don’t start none won’t be none” camp! Some folks will try to test you and they need to know you are not the one to mess with!! As mild-mannered as I generally am, I had to let a dude know I had that side in me a few times! It takes a lot to bring out, but really you don’t want to do that!

I had one to call me crazy, but you know he backed off quick and didn’t go there again with me!

kimmie – part of it is I come from a crazy A family and crazy is kind of expected but another part (at least way back in high school and around the neighborhood) is that when you are small those thick, big boned chicks think they can punk you. nope I was a squabbling little something in my day.
