Craziest stunt for love?

I know I have publicly admitted to being a completely lazy dater with barely enough energy to devote to one guy. I can also confess that I am cautious (overly?) about giving my heart to someone and being vulnerable.

The reason I am this way, though – is because I have been stuck on stupid for a guy before. It wasn’t pretty, people! I was not the rational, level-headed, wise woman you all know and love (*cough*) today. I was the snooping, insecure, pull out all the stops kind of girl. Why? Because a man had me “feeling” as if I was head over heels.

That’s right people, we have all pulled some crazy stunts in the name of “love” or lust, or infatuation. Let’s confess. What is the craziest thing you have done to impress someone or an attempt to make someone fall for you?

No judgment zone, right? Right?

Nothing acrobatical being crazy in love, but if Wise Diva’s example faux pas are any indication of crazy, then I admit, GUILTY. I’m habitually guarded because most men live by the screw you code and in every way. All it takes is one. Therefore, my eyes and ears are trained to mentally record nearly every word, every action every deed. Because men aren’t too keen having an itemization of offenses constantly tracked, I’ve perfected the craft. Calling foul on actions simply isn’t warranted and only results in a liar turning that much bigger a liar. Anyone auditioning but can’t make the cut due to inabilities, the inability to speak truth, the inability to come thru, the inability to be trusted, I simply keep aware and keep him permanently at bay, never trusting, never commiting. Just nod and keep nice. Never fully give myself, won’t open my heart, won’t give my body. That’s more subtle than saying I can’t commit because what you say compared to actions, aren’t adding up. Keeping interactions cooled and iced works out better, much cleaner and keeps one off the Queen B!tch title. In summation, like Diva being so crazy in love that you grow another set of senses only turns to everyone’s favor, AVOIDANCE! All it takes is one.

In essence and confession, I’ve snooped, tracked, recorded, broke into voicemail, you name it. Of course being younger and not realizing he was not the only man living. Finding a better man and walking away would have been much easier. All it takes is one. One to be crazy for and one to learn from. Walk away :)

@Blackfoote, you only need one and I learned a long long time ago. I didn’t get good with my craft though, for sometime. I’ve been the gatekeeper of my heart but I didn’t learn how to smoothly do it until growing older…lol

Morning, bloggies!

On Topic~ When I was younger, I have definitely played the fool for a man. In my defense, I was very young and very inexperienced, but I became the jealous, snoopy, questioning GF. Then, I realized that I did not like who I had become dealing with him and like that *snap*, it was over. I came to the realization (with help from some very good friends) that no matter what you do, if he wants to cheat, he will cheat. :)

The downside of being too overly cautious Lily is u cannot commit,just like Diva so u can’t play and romp.

Lady~ My dad was born in Orangeburg. I was born in Monk’s Corner (I always just say Columbia because people have no idea where Monk’s Corner is :lol: ) My grandparents would have been there WAAAYYY before your boo. My dad is almost 66 and he was a change of life baby (born when my grandma was 42 and my grandpop was 47) But anyway, the last name is Savage.

I can’t even begin to think about the crazy things my ex had me doing. I was sooooo in love that I really did get jealous, possessive, aggressive. I look back and I have to laugh at myself to keep me from punching myself!!! I knew it was time to end it when my mom told me I was turning into a b*tch towards him. I realized she was right…

Anyway…I’m a little embarassed about some of the things I did, but most of them were in the privacy of our own home. A lot of things, he deserved! Looking back, I wish I had done worse to him! LOL

Good morning!

You may not be surprised, but I have never pulled any crazy stunts for someone to recognize the love I have for them.

I was the snooping, insecure, pull out all the stops kind of girl. Wise, you’re definitely not alone. I know many like this. I just can’t see myself doing this. Could be I’ve never met anyone who took to that lovel (level and love).

This should be an interesting read. I never forget my gf who jumped on her boyfriend’s car and rode the hood for a good 2-3 blocks before he stopped. Not my thing. You want to go, then you go.

Leggs~ Not ashamed to own it; He made me so mad that I threw a coffee cup at his ‘73 Vette and busted the window out. Hiding in bushes, breaking into cell phones. Yup, he had my nose wide open. :lol: In my defense, most of my crazy came out while I was pregnant so I can blame some(but not all) of it on the hormones. Funny, he ended up marrying the girl he cheated on me with and she dogged the isht out of him. All I could do is sit back and laugh…

Comon ~ I have been the chick that rode with a gf to Adamsville to check on her cheating man. That opened my eyes to a lot of things I felt I never wanted to do. She’s been in the bushes, he came to her apartment in the early morning and tied the bra she left at his house to her window wipers. She came out to find a note pinned to her bra with her wipers up in the air. I tell you, that isht was funny as hell but I. I took many notes from her on what I hoped to never do. So far, 0 for 0!

Good Morning, all….

No court today meant no tie today….that alone made my morning better.

On topic: Umm, I don’t ever really remember acting crazy over a female. I never had a problem with options so I was fairly easy to cut bait and look for another fish.

CC: I know Monk’s Corner and not just because of the 2 Live Stews. It seemed to be closer to Charleston than Columbia. I had some teammates that grew up there.

The family has a vacation house on Johns Island, SC. I love going in the backyard and dropping the traps in the morning and pulling up blue crab in the evening. Thanksgiving will be out there is year. In the words of NY Jets Bart Scott “Can’t Wait!”

HAPPY COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON DAY!!! My alma mater plays tonight in Nashville. I may go to the home opener just to hear 2001 played and see that cage rolled onto the field. Co.cky has been caged up for 9 months.

Poppa~ It is closer to Charleston, but we always went to Columbia because we had family there and I have a SLEW of cousins that were born in Columbia, so I just claim Columbia. I actually lived in Charleston for a short time when I was a child.

No joke on the Jazmine Sullivan. I was wide open. :lol:

I know some “crazy love” stories. one in particular comes to mind. chick I went to high school with had a baby while her man was locked up. apparently she never told him she was with someone else or that she was pregnant and so when she had the baby at home she called the police and told them she found a baby on her doorstep. it didn’t take too long for the story to unravel. one of her other kids told the police she had the baby. all that because she was worried her locked up boyfriend wouldn’t accept the kid.

I know a (battered) woman whose husband took her on vacation but beat her up in the hotel room and then tied her to the bed while he went out and did whatever. she said she laid there and cried herself to sleep and he eventually returned and untied her. I’m like really? in a hotel room where there may have been people next door and folks walking the halls and you still didn’t scream. she said nope. she didn’t want to get him in trouble (translation: make him mad).

these may not be the crazy love stories we are looking for but crazy is crazy.

O/T: That deadly accident on Phantersville and Oakvale had street traffic crawling like a snail. I so wanted to be the pied piper and honk my horn and have the cars follow me through a particular subdivision that by passed much of that street traffic on Waldrop. I was the lone driver bypassing all those cars. But, when I made it to the other side, still more traffic. Doesn’t matter. I felt good bypassing a good 200 cars (lol).
