Dating: The L word dilemma

What would you do if the person you just started dating blurted out “I love you” way too soon? It happens a lot! People get caught up in the moment and express what they think they are feeling.

This kind of situation can either scare someone off because they don’t feel the same way or it can force a conversation about “where things stand” with you.

I think some people have been the first to say I love you in relationships that they are gun shy with sharing those words. Should you wait to say it when you mean it? Do you say it when you think you are falling?

Why are guys freaked out when a woman they are saying tells them she loves them. After doing all kinds of things with the woman, hearing her say I love you somehow seems outrageous, but why?

When do you think it is appropriate to tell someone you are falling in love, are in love, or love them? When is the wrong time to say it?

Happy Friday!

S/H – well I’d rather have a slow day at home than a slow day waiting to get to be able to go home. whoever coined the phrase “long as a month of Sundays” got it wrong. it should be “long as a bunch of slow work days”.

Well how about I was blessed with a new nice super padded leather chair at work…even had wood grain arms and legs lol…Well this morning i get notified that the chair will get repoed on Monday. Apparently, my ass is not worth a $400 office chair.

slim – re work and chairs. some years ago I worked at a place where folks had a thing for playing practical jokes and pranks on one another. y’all know me. I’m not the jokey joke type especially with co-workers. anyway, I was out of the office for awhile. don’t remember if it was vacation or funeral or what but it was extended. I get back to work and have no chair. my first thought is it’s a joke and I’m not in the mood. I go to the office services guys so they can track down my chair. no one would own it. chair never did turn up. we eventually just decided that someone swiped the chair for their own use and never owned it. meanwhile, my buddy in office services decides that since I thought it was a joke he’d turn it into a joke. he went and took a wing chair and ottoman from someone’s office and put it in my workspace.

SH – I think i’ll crop dust the hell out of it before they come get it. lol Honestly, it’s probably a matter of someone being jealous of the new chair and went to complain about it. I don’t even think my GM’s chair is this nice lol At least I got to feel like somebody special this week…lol

S/H – again I say – shut up. those folks played too much. they did the basic things like staplers in bowls of jello but they took it up a notch too. one time a chick stayed after work and made another chick’s workspace look like a crime scene. complete with blow up doll, fake blood and crime scene tape. another time they typed up a fake list of folks to be let go and left in a public area to be found. some folks were actually in tears thinking they were about to lose their jobs.

My boss just had to p*ss me off after she heard me say I won these tickets. She had the nerve to come in and say something about all of us having our cell phones out (when she’s on hers all the time). She said that she shouldn’t walk into our offices and see cell phones and iPods on our desk. It is too the side. I commented that she has hers out all day and she tried to say she didn’t. I said that mine stays to the side and I occasionally check my emails and just saw that I won these tickets. She said she was going to talk to all of us after work about it. After she walked out, I said “talk about trying to be a buzzkill.” Whatever! I’m not going to let her ruin me being excited about winning!!!

slim – nope, not funny at all. I must admit, though, that I was a wee bit tickled to see a saran wrapped jeep in my neighborhood once. I could only imagine the effort required to pull that off. of course if it was my jeep I would have been ticked.
