Dating in Atlanta competitive?

I was out hanging in our great city recently and I noticed something about the dating scene, it’s competitive. No really, like pull out all the stops, going way overboard to attract people – competitive. It’s one of those things you sort of always knew about the dating scene here, but until you pay close attention, you don’t see the intricate ways it unfolds.

A lot of people in Atlanta are really big on image (fake?) and the appearance of success. You don’t have to actually be successful, just walk and talk like you are. The problem with focusing on the image and appearance is that you really find out later once the bait and switch happens. All this makes the dating scene competitive, a little challenging, and I think a bit shallow.

What do you think? Have you noticed the competitiveness of single people here? Does it bother you? How can you rise above this kind of thing and meet people who are more authentic and genuine?

Competitive? Oh Bly….but like I didn’t know!

So…..if it is competitive like that how do some bloggers end up on dates with dudes who don’t have cars?

Authentic people don’t have to shed their image and appearance it’s there, fakers exagerate their worth. A grown man competing for affection in one of the most highly regarded cities where women are abundant I feel very bad for you. I don’t believe mature women want men to view them as objects to compete for like they’re at an auto auction.

Good Morning:

I think some people see dating as a sport. I have vowed to just be myself because I want a man to fall for me as I am, not as I appear to be. I saw a great quote last night, “Be Weird. Be Random. Be who you are. Because you never know who would love the person you hide.”

good morning folks. the way I see it dating – as is a lot of things in life – is competitive. whether you want to call it that or go into it with a competitive frame of mind, it is what it is. sure there’s dating just for the sake of having something to do but then there’s dating to seek out and hopefully find a true partner. you are sizing them up based on your criteria and they are sizing you up based on theirs. you may or may not be in direct competition but to the victor got the spoils.

You think women who date spend gazillions time in front of the mirror and gazillion more $$$ on dress shoes nails just to please themselves?

Hmmmm..maybe they can tell us.
And they snipe on each other
And then they brag whenthey got a man……my man this my man that…
And the ones listening eye roll and snipe… :eyeroll:

So what do men do..with All this attention on Us….

We tap dance……looking around and smelling ourselves….

Choosing choosing choosing….

I am so glad I am a Man….

Good morning all,

I think you’ll attract comparable energy that you put out. If you are a fake person, always trying to keep up with the Joneses, worried about what a person makes, shallow etc then you’ll probably attract someone of that same nature. Take myself for instance, I’m not all into the latest hand bag, who is driving the newest Beamer, Benz or Bentley so i don’t attract many folks that do find interest in those things. As far as dating competitive, I’m not going to throw myself around all for the sake of a date. If I meet you and we seem to have a connection then we date/hangout and see where it goes. If you come across as a womanizing, male wh0re, then obviously our dating period will be short-lived. I’m not trying to date the Stevie J’s of Atlanta…I want a down to earth, level headed, responsible man.

Mmeello – I’m in between Blackfoote’s post as well as yours. I think from the time little girls come into their own, it’s their nature to want to primp and look good and be girlie. However I agree, it’s not all for nothing. Yes, nature kicks in but not just on one end. Nature (i.e. boys) are calling. So, to some extent IMO, women (I do), like to look good, look fit, smell good for themselves but I also believe somewhere underneath that, it’s to get a man’s attention. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean you’re hunting and looking and scavaging and not even so much a direct hit, but even if just a little, it’s because looking good, looking fit, smelling good is the thing that turn heads.

ex – while I agree that a lot of primping is done for the benefit of the opposite sex a lot of primping is done for the sake of the person primping. do you know that some women in prison spend their book money on makeup? as far as I’m concerned that’s a big waste of money (I’d rather buy the little Debbie cakes myself) but it’s not my money. and men primp too. let’s not front like they don’t.

Ex I get information from (Mature) single women that I’m in tune with. They consistantly tell me they don’t care for a grown man that goes out his way for attention. They tell me they look right past him and look at dudes more put together. They realize dudes with that menatality is mostly carpet bagging.

The question on women spending to look good, yes some will and should. They are the most attractive things on earth and I want them to look very good. Looking good and being arrogant about it are two separate issues, the arrogant woman can ease on down the road without a peep from me while the good looking lady with class can stand next to me.

I can just hear the threat in my mind – all you mutha suckas. lol. anyway, be safe. we had a similar situation at a firm I worked at some years back and the poor receptionist was in a tizzy. I told her that if by chance a crazed gunman showed up looking for anybody that she should just tell them where so and so was. heck, I’d have been like let me get the firm directory, I’ll tell you where they live, what they drive, what their kids look like. what you wanna know?

Celisea....He who laughs last, laughs on: Winning!

Blackfoote – I would exactly say the pulpit…lol I think there’s a lot to be said if defining being authentic versus not. Passing opinions because a person doesn’t look, act or conduct themselves by your standard or what you think is not NOT being authentic. You just don’t agree.

Okay, say if a man is wh@ish and don’t tell a woman, then he’s not being who he is, but if he says hey, I’m cool hanging out sometimes but I should tell you, I like plenty of women, then he’s being true to who he is. I might object to his lifestyle because I believe there should be only one man to one woman, but if that’s NOT who he is, then is he a poser just because I think so?

Or say a person like the finer things. If that’s not my thing, should I feel some kind of way about them because it’s not me and what I do?

Or say a person is an introvert and I’m not. Should I say they shun folks and are anti social because I am and they’re not?

I think being authentic is true to who you are…no matter what others think. IMO, if you’re politically correct because it’s the thing to do, but within you don’t believe it yourself and would rather live cramped because of that, then you are not being true to yourself.

Cely the second paragraph stands out to me when someone tell you what they are and back that up with action that’s authentic. Doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks that’s authentic too. I beleive we’re all authentic until we show something different.

Thanks CC – He was an ex from a long time ago, but we remained close friends. He was a severe alcoholic and had a ton of health problems. He just keeled over and his roommate found him. We just found out two weeks ago that it was his heart that gave out. I’ve been kind of in caretaker mode with his roommate/best friend and haven’t really given myself much time to mourn. Now that things are slowing down and life is getting normal, it’s hitting me. I realized the other day that no matter what was going on in our lives, we never went more than 5 months without speaking and it’s been just over 5 months since he died.

Not trying to dampen any mood on the blog today. Just wanted to share that I’m feeling blue. Hoping ya’ll can get me laughing today! :-)

Blackfoote – I agree and exactly. Oftentimes, calling someone out based on what we internalize as how things should be, IMO is wrong. People are free to be, is where it’s at (yes at)….whether it’s crazy, skank, huzzie, standup…whatever IMO, waaaay deep down inside, every individual knows if they’re keeping true to who they are. At that point it’s on them. I had to learn that. Don’t go trying to school, counsel, fix folks. Work on yourself and let folks live and let live. And mistakes, hiccups, errors, do-overs, IMO ain’t faking. That’s what I would call living.

Kicking yourself because you didn’t say what you wanted to say, which in turn (you believe), could have had better results.

Not that any of this is true, just how the (my) mind goes when you don’t do something you so desire to do…good, bad or indifferent.

Just my humble thoughts though

Bluzy – We all get conflicted at times. If you haven’t been you will be. What to do, what to do. The right thing versus “what I want.” If you can’t do the right thing and stick with it and move it along, go for what you want. You cannot though do both, if what you want is not “the right thing to do.” If they’re both one and the same, go for it. If not, and you know better than any of us could ever advise, it’s like trying walking backwards and forwards at the same time…impossible.

Leggs

Morning Gang!

I skimmed a bit, know you all are probably off topic now, but I’ll comment on it anyway. I recognized the somewhat competitiveness of the dating scene many years ago and relieved myself of it by taking myself out of it! What I mean by that is I didn’t frequent all the “in” places where singles mixed and mingled, because when I did, you could cut the tension in those places with a knife! Plus, I truly lost interest in them, like the nightclubs & gyms & other “meet” markets. I don’t think it’s much more competitive here than any other major city though. Bottom line, you do have some truly successful people here and I’m not just talking about the entertainers & athletes either. Those with a little less confidence in themselves and what they have to offer may attempt to fake it to fit in. What I’ve always observed thought, is that the cream always rises to the top. You can only fake it for so long. I’m a real native and I’ve seen many wannabees come and go! Folks who truly have it going on can spot the fakes a mile away, trust. The better thing to do is yes, be yourself! If you spot someone whose success you truly admire, get to know them and find out what their secret is. You’ll find that they are where they are because of hard work. You gotta be willing to put in the work. Too many come here expecting things to be easy and laid out for them. Plus, it’s in the South so they expect it to be like Mayberry and everyone is supposed to be genuine and friendly. There are sheep in wolves clothing here like anywhere else.

I texted him and said “I’d rather talk in person…maybe in the next day or two?” He responded with “What ever Bluzgirl (said my name)…” I just asked when is good for him and waiting for a response.

I do like him, but it terrifies me because he’s so much like my ex and I can NOT get into another situation like that. I want to remain friends. I’m ok with backing off of everything else and just sticking to being friends. Ugh…men!!! I don’t know why he’s getting testy with me. He’s the one who did me wrong on Saturday. I just want to clear the air.

NOT what I wanted to deal with today…I just want to go home and crawl into bed and pull the covers over my head for a couple of days. I hate this depression…

swiss – I’m cyclothymic, which is just below bipolar. I also have generalized anxiety. In my cyclothymia, I deal with more depression. I’m on mood stabilizers and anti-depression and anxiety meds, but it still takes me down sometimes. One difference in cyclothymia and bipolar is that I can still function in my daily life. Even though I’m feeling really low right now, I was still able to get out of bed and come to work and do my job.

I’m not ashamed of my mental issues…I fight for reducing the stigma attached to it, so I have begun to talk openly about it. I want to show people that it’s ok to have these issues and it doesn’t mean you’re crazy…

not to crack jokes on bipolar but I have a cousin who was diagnosed and she seems to think it gives her free reign to act a danged fool. she’s constantly talking about “so and so better leave me alone. they know I’m bipolar”. lol. me, I’m always in the background talking about “quit telling people you are bipolar”. there is no shame in her game.

Bluzy – I’m certainly not here to beat up on you for wanting and desiring more, but for you (based on what you’ve posted) and where your head heart is in all of this, it would be wise to look at where you could possibly land in the grand scheme of things. If you’re cut from funning and flying have at it, but if that’s going to further wreak havoc on your mental state then learn to let it go. I said do what you want, because it’s oozing from the screen what you want and desire, but if he’s not on the same page, the physical is only going to last but so long and you’ll end up with none of what you so desire as well as empty. I won’t make you feel like it’s foreign walking away from something that you soooo desired, but if folks aren’t in it for you and you for them, meshing along the same lines, an imbalance overall, it’s just safe and the right thing to do in cutting ties. It’s not always want you want but at some point you (you Bluzy), will have to grow up and learn this and what it means.

bluz – I don’t know that particular dude (or any of the other dudes in your life) but it does seem like you are prone to being emotionally abused. as for my cousin, she’d be wide open with or without a bipolar claim. I just think it’s comical that she loves to holler out “I’m bipolar”. every time I think about it I giggle a little bit. I’m like go ahead and act a fool, you don’t have to bring bipolar into it. lol.

Cel – the weird thing is that I do and I don’t want more. I’m attracted to him, but he’s not who I should be with. He’s not going to give me what I want. I ended my last relationship because he couldn’t give me what I want and need. I have to stay strong to not get caught up in something like that craziness again. I just want to go back to being friends and just hanging out and having fun together. I have to be able to cut out the part about wanting more. I think I can do it. I’m much stronger than I used to be. There are too many red flags and my eyes are opened. If I get involved with anything more, then I’m the fool. Only way things will progress is if he SHOWS me that he’s not like my ex and that he really cares about me, which I’m not expecting to happen. Since he won’t do that, I think I’ll be able to keep it moving.

Lady – I used to be only interested in the medications until about two years ago when I felt like I was losing it mentally. I started therapy, where I got my true diagnosis, and was put on proper meds. That, along with talk therapy, has helped tremendously. People are so afraid of therapy. Again…the stigma attached. I will glady say that I’m in therapy because it’s the best thing I’ve done for myself. Yes…I still have hard times…I always will. Sometimes I handle it right…sometimes I don’t. It’s all a learning process…with or without a mental issue. (I don’t like the term mental illness)

Bluz~ Maybe you should just start out taking baby steps as opposed to tring to finish the marathon right out of the gate. You didn’t learn the behavior over night and you are not going to change the behavior over night. Set small milestones and as you accomplish each one, you will build your confidence in your ability to make the right choices. Anything that you can do consecutively for 30 days becomes a habit. So think of the types of behaviors you would like to have as habits and move in that direction.

Now that I think back, I may have briefly dated someone that was bipolar or at least PSTD. He was ex-military special ops, one minute he would call me all nice and sweet and charming. Then the next hour or day he would be a completely different person – mean and nasty. He would call and just start putting me down and making nasty jokes about me! The last time I talked to him I told him just lose my number and I cussed him out. I mean it was straight WEIRD!!

I could literally see the switch turn. He’d be all like, “baby, I love you and miss you and want to marry you.” Then, 10 minutes later, he would start calling me awful names and would accuse me of a lot of things I never did.

Bluzy – Why don’t you get a few things and cook (I’m one to talk…I know), rather than frozen foods? You can buy a family pack of chicken/ground beef, etc and break up and freeze separately. When I do grocery shop, I’ll buy sometimes in moderate portions and separate and freeze separated. So, say I fry chicken, I too don’t want to eat it forever, I’ll cook enough for a couple of days. Something along those lines. I’m not one for advising though in the cooking department cause I gotta be feeling some kind of way to get it done. I’ll buy and freeze stuff in a heartbeat, if buy the time I’m home to cook, the feeling of cooking has passed….lol

She wouldn’t eat anything from McDonald’s but fries. She moved to the chicken sandwich later years. But as a tot/kid, she would NEVER eat theirs (or anybody else’s) hamburgers. She’s more a chicken and pasta type person.

So…Magnum and I are going to have dinner tonight. I decided after not hearing from him to be honest and tell him that I’m fighting a deep depression due to the reality of my friend’s death setting in. I’m not in a good place in my head right now, and I wanted to tell him because he is my friend and I wanted him to know where I’m at today. He asked if I was busy tonight and I said that I was only planning to practice my bass, so he asked if we could have dinner to talk about our troubles…he may be going through a lot right now also…

BOCADILLO CON CHORIZO – Sautéed smoked Spanish sausage, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, onions, Monterey jack cheese, Cuban dressing and brown mustard on Cuban bread

I’ve had a lot in my mind about my deceased friend…never really had a chance to grieve before now. Been holding it in and all the feelings are starting to come out. Also, I really hate when I’m low on funds. Trying to figure out how I’m going to pay for everything and still get to go out Saturday night.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m an advocate for kids sleeping in their own beds but just sometimes, you’re gonna give in. I remember doing it with my kid and I remember climbing in bed with moms and pops. My dad WAS NOT the happy camper so my mama would spoon with me on the opposite side of the bed.

Bluz- Sometimes you just need to sit back and listen (or in this case read)…We like having you here being so honest and sharing with us. However, it always comes down to what you say you NEED to have happen versus what you end up doing or WANTING to do. Just check out how you say you hate being broke, yet you want to go out this weekend. The LOGICAL thing to do is to sit down and chill at the crib and practice your bass. It does not cost you anything. You don’t get paid until next Friday, and I assume by next Friday that you mean of next week…not in 3 days. So you still have damn near two weeks to get through. So even if you do get the money for moving your aunt and you hate eating noodles, again it makes SENSE to not go out. I’m not trying to discourage you from sharing but at what point will you start making better decisions…every good action plan seems to come AFTER the fact of what you already knew was a high potential outcome. You don’t want anyone that’s like your ex, yet this dude has shown you many red flags that resemble your ex. He has already disrespected you and yall have only knocked boots a couple of times. I’ve never seen the honeymoon phase wear off that dayum fast. Your new moniker should be Whirlwind or Tornado Bluz lol

That was my mama’s house. Sometimes, to avoid a bunch of questions, I pull up and drop the kid off, with dinner and snacks and sometimes jammies in hand….and keep rolling….lol Sometimes. If I’d walked inside, there would have been a gazillion questions on “where ya heading?” Nonya Now, I don’t have to say a thing. My kid is big and my nieces and nephews all drive. I just need to send her with funds…lol She can do the rest or cook something right out of grammy’s freezer :) :) :)

Only because folks are crazy do I leave my kid with my mom/sister if I’m gone a good while. Nuh uh, don’t want here home alone. Folks walking in and crap. It’s just crazy.

Swiss – My first encounter at seeing a young guy “point” was weird but it was during high school. He was my HS sweetie and was over visiting. I walked to the bus stop with him (he was heading home) and wowzer (while hugging)….lololol He was embarrassed to say the least. He had on jeans.

Those nylon track suits were the worse culprits in the Surprise wang teepee! And I hear silk boxers tend to cause that infracture more frequently than any other undergarment

Boxers, in general, are a bad idea when you’re in puberty. Gotta wait until you have mastered your domain before you can pull off boxers or free-balling.

There was another moment in my mom’s living room. He was visiting and I had on a skirt without a slip. I stood up to do in front of the lamp. After returning to the couch, he said, I just looked straight through your skirt…and there was the swell.

Soooo, now I wear slips….lolololol

Swiss – LOLOLOLOLOL…I ain’t gonna lie. I didn’t know what to do. I wanted to run but I wanted to stay. Soooo, I stay close until the bus came. But that was all. Too much time at the bus stop and my daddy would have come looking for me. No joke there…lololol Did NOT want that to happen.

Celisea – and you make wearing slips sound like a public service announcement. lol.

swiss – what I got from it was that dude wasn’t new to this. he wasn’t one of those virgin-type brothersw who hadn’t been introduced to his own wang yet. he also knew that there are the girls that are scared of the lumps and the girls that are checking for the lumps. he was gauging her reaction.

Disco – Your 4:45, you might be right. Everybody knows I was a “good girl” and he was knows as a pretty cool dude…a good boy. We went together about 3 years. At that time, I’d say we’d been in it about a year or so. So, yeah there’d been no tasting of the goodies, just heavy kissing and petting. I think though by that time he could tell his boys, dang y’all was right about her…lololol He always seemed cool with “no.” I’m sure though, in retrospect, some hot tailed cheerleader was dusting him off. He was 6′0″, deep dimples and bowlegged (shet it up…y’all know that would make sister go limp in the knees)…a cutie.
