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?

Whew! I dip away for a meeting and all hell done broke loose. I think I’ll hang out around the sidelines and watch the action until it’s time to go.

Sassy – LOLOLOLOL….okaaaay? I’m mean seriously dude. It’s one thing to smooze with a bit of class like the other dudes but you pulling up a dang chair ALLLL DAY with the other women and attacking folks or disrecpting or cracking, is way too much. Get a bit of class yourself and be a man about yours.

I think he should change his name to ATL Boy because he’s acting like a little boy. Sad to see a “man” act that way…he just doesn’t know when to stop. Keeps making stupid little jabs.

Too, I made general statements. ATL Guy et al, your 4:26 brought it directly to me so don’t look strange. You called me uneducated?? Remember?? Too, it’s been you attacking me in the past. Remember Ron Burgundy? That was you too. Yeah, I’ve had to really contain myself all this time. You brought it though when you attacked me last week.

Oh, y’all didn’t know he’s threatened me before. Yeah, he and I know that. My livelyhood. That’s when I realized just how dangerous he is. And then hops on here like he’s a saint with folks rallying around him, the great nice person he is.

I typed that yeah Cel – I should cc’ and paste your garbage comments as well. I wanted to not battle with you, but you keep talking trash so let it go

ATL Guy – I’m waiting??? The thing is, I’ve NEVER mentioned my offline interaction with him. He would CONSTANTLY make reference with y’all but none of y’all knew it but me. He wanted so badly for someone to pick up on it. He said he almost posted all of our emails out here. Yeah, he said that in private.

Celisea...tiptoeing through the tulips headed for vacay!!

ATL Guy

Cel – I don’t know the person you’re speaking of that is married with kids and dangerous with private comments, but thats not cool to mix me with that person

Celisea...tiptoeing through the tulips headed for vacay!!

Explain your threat and comments.

ATL Guy

You were cursing me out thinking I was someone else and I said I would destroy you on the blog. Enough Said. Then I was like, don’t want to battle and keep it moving. You don’t want to let it go

ATL Guy

ATL Guy – Not one time did I curse you UNTIL you attacked. Do I need to repaste the entire blog for that day. We were talking about bras and boobs. You came with the intent to start something. You asked if we never worked.

Liar.

Well well well…I get an email asking why I am posting under another name and come and check. Celisea this is the first time I have addressed you outside of email since our differences and let me tell you. ATL Guy is not me. I promise. I only use this moniker. So I can honestly say ATL Guy is not me. Believe it if you want and I see others think that ATL Guy is me as well. But it is not me. Only people I have been in contact with as of late are the two ladies I sent pictures of my children to. Just felt that I needed to clean up my name. Have a good evening you all!

When you can explain yourself and why you did what you did then I’ll see you for more than the slick person you are. Until then I’ll believe you are Purple. You ain’t slick. I’ve met Dreams, you kept saying “I have never met you”..no you haven’t. Chosing your words carefully.

I am sure as proof as the blog administrator to check the ip addresses and such. My comes from Minnesota I have no clue where ATL Guy’s comes. Report his ip address and you will see that it is not me. I don’t argue with women.
