Do things have the change?

If a new relationship is going really good, chances are, things lead to physical intimacy. This means that the dynamics of the relationship will change. Does it have to? Not necessarily, but when you bring sex in to the situation, things generally take a shift.

It seems there a lot of expectations, so I always think it is good to talk about what those are before you start to get physical. It may make it easier to handle the difference after things get intimate. It’s not just women who change either! A lot of men are known to switch their behavior after sex is introduced in a relationship.

Why do you think sex changes a relationship dynamic so much?

How does it make a difference when it comes to how two people relate?

ITL~ We are season ticket holders, but I told you the hubs was going to the season opener (It’s his alma mater) so I laid around the house and watched the game on TV Saturday day and then watched Clemson and Auburn on Saturday night.

Leggs – That makes me wonder what prostitutes smell like if they are constantly doing with random dudes…Every person has their own smell/odor whether it’s a regular natural musk or something at the bottom of a grocery store trash can. :shock:

ITL – I was thinking about you Sat being at the game. I was upset I couldn’t even get a radio feed while lounging on the beach!!! BUT…it was ok in the end. I have an app that kept me updated on the scores! I wore my UGA shirt to the beach, though!

Then it’s time to start working on that mini spread if you don’t want it to fully bloom…IJS (from experience (lol).

I won’t even pretend to understand prostitution. I understand the concept of a person gots to do what a person gots to do, but that hustle I don’t want to understand.

I’m proudly wearing my white linen skirt tomorrow. Already ironed it. Labor Day or no labor day. The sun is beaming brightly and so are my summer colors.

I’m with Leggs, Labor Day or no Labor day, if it’s still hot, I will rock the white linen or jeans. I also love the winter wqhite wools that have been coming out lately.

ITl~ No problem. When I am coming to one of the games, I will let you know so that I can get in on the tailgaiting action. I will probably go to Tennessee on the 29th and USC on the 6th of Oct. I will DEFINITELY be at the GA vs GT game.

OK, but what’s with the random colored purse that matches NOTHING (And I do mean nothing) that the woman is wearing? I’m not sure I am digging that trend.

Speaking about purses not having to match, what’s up with that ugly multi-colored Dooney & Burke fiasco? I put that bag right up there with roach spray smelling Fendi perfume.

Leggs~ I do not dig the roach smelling Fendi either. The multi-colored Dooney & Burkes came after the mulit-colored Coach fiasco if I am not mistaken. Blech!

@Stamps: Cuz I can. :)

For real, though, I feel like since most of my folks know I was in Athens on Saturday and Blue Ridge after that (having co-workers as friends on FB who see your “check-ins” takes care of that) I didn’t want to run into the, “Oh….so you can go tailgating and partying but can’t make to work after a long weekend……” looks/insinuations.

Leggs

Everytime I smell a woman wearing Fendi I wonder what is wrong with sense of smell, but more importantly, I wonder what is wrong with the sense of smell of the people who created such a foul smelling perfume. It is truly horrendous.

ITl – Well my coworker has been off work since last Wednesday so today was her first day back. As i’m walking into the building she is leaving out. So i yell, you leaving already?!! She says she’s sick, feels like she’s going to vomit and is seeing double. (Now who knows, she may be sick but she was out on vacation the last week) I’m like Mmm huh, i bet yo ass is sick..just sick because you have to be at work today. lol

I used to be of the mind that purses have to match my outfit. These days, I have little interest in transferring ish from one purse to another to care.

And as much as I like my weekly direct deposit, I could really do with not working – especially now that I’ve got my operation up and running and have such strong people in supervisory positions that I’m almost not needed for day to day stuff.

ITL ~ that may know you’re in Athens, but every detail doesn’t need to be posted on FB. Not saying that’s what you do since I’ve never seen your page. Just because you’re in Athens doesn’t mean your at the game. You could have gotten sick on the way down and bypassed the tailgate party…..yeah right (lololol).
