Dating: Rejection and big egos

Have you ever been out somewhere, minding your own business, and you get approached – when you really don’t want to be? Things can get kind of awkward but it only gets worse when someone’s massive ego gets bruised and they can’t handle it.

In the last few days, I have heard disturbing stories of people completely losing their cool when they get turned down. It’s like they go from sweet talk to rage speak in sixty seconds! Whatever happened to bowing out gracefully or going away quietly?

Of course, letting someone down should be done in a gentle manner, but why do you think some people don’t just move on? What do you do if things escalate?

What is the best way to say you are not interested in someone?

I like goat, but I’ve never seen one cooked just after it stopped trotting.

I was at a friend’s house and her mother was making soup. I saw a cow hoof and knew I wouldn’t be having any of that soup.

A true lady is never a beyotch, but a beyotch can definitely be a trifling heffa.

CC – leave court in court please. I’m bringing it all up. I may not be expecting anyone to have to serve time or pay consequences but I’m bringing it up. if we have to bring court into it I’ll have to make the argument that it all goes to character your honor. lol.

Goat – we have a good friend back in Fla from Kingston. A whole goat from the field straight to his hands was just divine. $60 you could pick out the goat you wanted. A bbq pit, sharp knife, hatchet, plenty brew and essence and you got a block party. Man I miss Fla

leggs – actually I don’t. I just wasn’t sure if that’s the word y’all were searching for. thinking on it though all I ever refer to girl punks as is punk beyotches because a beyotch and a punk beyotch are definitely two different things.

S&H-

I always see them free and running around there.

One thing that told to me during my very first trip to Jamaica many years ago. “There is no such thing as a stray goat. It belongs to someone around here.”

Now, we would call it organic goat or something to jack up the price.

I’ve been at a latin friend’s house, and she was making some dish with la lengua de vaca. Good thing that I knew what the meant. :grin:

One thing that I remembered from my past and hear from my wife’s friends, many females keep CFMPs accessible. Some keep them in the car or in one of those huge bags that females carry around.
