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?

Alright ATL Guy, but remember also you asked me where I work…location. NO ONE knows that, specifically from this blog but one person. I will do it again. I will call truce and if you wanna square up with me to resolve (because honestly I don’t know what your beef is) and square up, I’m open. Be adult about it. Continously baiting and picking? Really? Otherwise, move it along.

I have the Carribean on my radar before the year is out. I’m going to try and do it. I was actually slated to go there instead of Florida. But since my mama kept bugging me, I’m going. She’s 82, I want to spend as much time as I can.

I hit Vegas as destinations on 2 car rallies. I ended up with 2 girls from the Spearmint Rhino tagging along to LA on Gumball, I partied way too hard. My liver is still complaining, but my cumulative hang-over is finally gone.

You went to the Varsity for lunch so I guessed N. Ave, if I was right, then thats pretty amazing! I could have guessed Peachtree St and would have had better odds :) Quit thinking I have an issue with you cause I don’t. You thought I was someone else, cursed me out, now that you know I’m not that person, all should be good, right?

Leggs that’s what makes the bread go down easily the gravy. Have you tried biscuits and syrup? What about a ham cheese and egg biscuit? Or you eat your bread dry with butter.

leggs – I feel you on that. when I get sandwiches at subway I don’t do oil or condiments because the daggone sandwich will be soggy by the time I get to it. wet bread is not a good thing. not saying I’m not down for some cornbread and pot likka or to sop something up with a biscuit. I just don’t want my bread drowned in liquid.

Single ~ what a difference leaving out words can do to a sentence (lol).

BF ~ just the thought makes me gag. I eat my bread dry with butter. Sometimes jelly! Never biscuits and syrup. If I were to eat a ham and cheese sandwich it would have to be real eggs prepared in front of me. Not into breakfast food from places like Mickey Dee’s or BK. I don’t eat eggs that have been sitting around over a heat lamp or heated through steam from beneath the pan. No can do.

disco ~ that too, I’ve never sopped up a thing with bread. Never dunked a cookie/donut in milk either. None of that ever made sense to me.
