Dating: Reformed player?

Some single people get a bad dating reputation because of past mistakes. Whether it’s breaking hearts or breaking cars, we have all done things we are particularly proud of. There are some things that are harder to live down though.

When you decide to grow up and start “dating responsibly” you probably will face a few challenges in cleaning up your rep. Do people believe you when you tell them that you have changed? A lot of people won’t! You probably will have to show them more than tell them.

A friend of mine found out that she is seeing a guy who has quite a bad dating record. The things people have told her about him so far are enough to fill up a soap opera. Of course, she does not see this side of him at all. He has convinced her that everything she heard was when he was young and dumb. Maybe he is a reformed player?

Do you think there is such a thing as a reformed player? Someone who has learned from their mistakes and cleaned up their act?

Are you reformed? How can one tell for sure that the person they are seeing has turned over a new leaf?

C – dumping not necessary. he’s in his state, I’m in mine. I told a friend that if we were in the same town he might make a good “drive by” if he’d just be quiet. he’s blown his chances of even being a summer fling.

I know people that would get off at 20 east or west just to go to Grandma’s Biscuit. I’d go there just to get a cup of grits anything from there was good.

Do you really eat biscuits covered in Gravy for breakfast!? Seriously, I didn’t know people eat stuff like that, just sounds nasty. Maybe its a Southern thing, I don’t know

Afternoon All,
Topic – Real true playas can’t reform. Best case scenario is for them to find a chick that will look the other and they usually do. Most women can spot a playa from a mile away. The dudes that have player in them are usually what most women end up getting played by. The quiet reserved dudes are the biggest players.

“I think a true playa, a playa down to the marrow will die being a playa.” True. I’ll take choosing hot nurses for my sponge baths than not being myself. With that being said, I do treat others as I want to be treated. I will not waiver what I want out of life for anyone.

I know like KFC has gravy and biscuits, but to have gravy in the morning is weird isn’t it? I’m not from here so maybe thats what it is, but still never seen it before

Biscuits and gravy is definitely a southern thing. I cringe every time I see it. I just can’t imagine eating it. Just a bunch of soggy, mushy bread. And then there’s the “red eye” gravy…yuck

Glad I’m eating lunch while I’m reading all this. Talipa over ginger sauce with steamed broccoli and black beans mixed with lima beans (I love all types of beans except string beans) and water.

I was in line behind a dude that bought two biscuits and gravy. I know the plate had to weigh a couple of pounds. That was a bit much. But not I’m not one that biscuits and gravy. What I mentioned was more so steak sauteed in gravy, on a biscuit. Not a biscuit dripping with gravy.

Wouldn’t say it’s a heart attack waiting to happen. It’s just biscuits and gravy.

I am a native to ATL, and when I was growing up, I rebuked anything country. Biscuits and gravy is something I always avoided, and never ate. Recently, eating breakfast out at my cabin, I decided to take the plunge, and try biscuits and gravy. I actually liked it, but I would never eat it, unless I’m at my cabin. I haven’t wanted to look at how bad biscuits and gravy are for a person, but at least what I’m eating is homemade.

To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever seen an average build man or woman eating biscuits and gravy. Always a pretty round person/

My girl is a licensed Dietitian soooo I would never get away with trying to make her Biscuits and Gravy! :) She makes some really incredible healthy dishes, but no one in my office knows what it is. Like a Jicama Salad (Mexican Root Vegetable), try that recipe, its excellent

O/T ~ I’m curious. How come those in relationships/marriages can come on this blog and flirt as hard as they do? I understand its cyberspace, but the things that have been said over the years made me wonder with ATL now talking about his gal.

I started typing and then erased it. ATL Guy is still playing games, not “just blogging.” Last week, while under attack, he said he was flying “out” to Boston with his girl for a weekend outing. Now, first and foremost you have a girl and if you’re in Atlanta, would you being flying “out” or “up?” Anywho, then he’s targeting folks he’s apparently got beef with and ATTEMPTING to instigate trouble (remember ATL Guy saying you’re sure Celisea is off limit…being funny…or not) then to only a few pages later to brush up against someone else. He should really stop with the shenanigans. Folks don’t get jealous and riled up like that….ESPECIALLY IF IT’S CLEAR THAT’S YOUR INTENT. I don’t know his point or angle. I thought it was put out yesterday.

But yeah, if you have a girl, you’re foul coming to a blog looking for physical shenanigans. Folks ain’t dropping panties like that. A playa don’t flip flop.

OMG…ya’ll have me craving some biscuits and gravy now! I love Cracker Barrell’s sausage gravy. Mmmmmm! There used to be a Grandma’s Biscuits on Buford Hwy in Chamblee. Not sure if it’s still there. Went there a few times as a kid and it was yummy!

It’s good to have a nice, unhealthy meal every once in a while! Everything in moderation, right?

Cel- Well I take notes from all the playas good and bad. Never know when I might need to purchase a jersey and play a few pick up games. LOL. Heyal even sloppy playas can get a layup every now and then.

Cel – You’re right, I was flying up to Boston because my girl’s family is up there. Went up there for the week of the 4th. Leggs has me confused I guess with that other person you talked about because I wasn’t on here years ago. Don’t know why you’re so defensive, everything I’ve said is fact so all good. Not messing with anybody
