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?

So, C is not gonna give up the goods… I have to call blogsville foul! You know you can’t tempt us with part of the story and not give us closure. (See how the blog has come full circle today? We started out talking about closure and now we are ending with closure…)

CC – You’re funny. I just don’t think it’s safe to totally dish here. I mean I’m upfront about how I am. Too many slaps in the form of advice and I might not be such a good sport…lolol Everything is everything, how bout we leave it at that.

Pops – that was dumb, jawjacking bout/to the fans. Cmon Man. The product on the field is still 1-e yrs away. Question is whether the fan base gives him that long.

Comon – I gave the Dawgs some props. No need to jab my Gators.

Cel – (said while licking my fingers, counting out $1’s). Yo know parking is only validated for the first few hrs. Stop playing, hahaha

They decide to compete to see who is the fastest to
get a banana off the tree.

If your answer is:
Lion = you’re dull.
Chimpanzee = you’re dense.
Giraffe = you’re a complete moron.
Squirrel = you’re hopeless.

A COCONUT TREE DOESN’T HAVE BANANAS

Neither. They both weigh a pound.

CC – re a pound of feathers and a pound of bricks. I saw a friend (whose weight tends to balloon) and she had put on some weight. naturally, me being me I called her on it because she’s always claiming to be dieting and exercising. she said she gained 20 pounds and I said it was like the difference between 20 pounds of brick and 20 pounds of cotton balls. she does not carry weight well at all. lol. and in case y’all think I’m an awful friend, I’m not. I compliment her when it’s down but I call her out when it’s not. I even went jogging with her Sunday after I had already completed my own run.

The banana joke was very cute.

Here’s another for you (please remember that I am a PK…)

Jesus and Moses were playing golf. They come to a hole with a long fairway with a big lake in the middle and the green is on the other side. Right as they are about to tee off, a little old man walks up and says “Can I play through with you guys?” Jesus says, “Sure!”

So, Jesus tees off first and right before his ball can land in the water, it rolls across the surface up onto the green for a hole in one. The little old man scratches his head and says “I’m not sure if I can play with you fellas…” Jesus says “Sure you can! It will be okay!”

Next, Moses tees off. Right before his ball can land in the water, the waters part and the ball rolls across the dry lake bed up onto the green for a hole in one.

Now, the little old man is in shock. He says “I’m really not sure tat I can hang with you guys to play through.” But Moses says” Sure you can! Go ahead and tee off!”

So the little old man tees off and right before his ball can land in the water a fish jumps up and knocks the ball into the air where a bird catches it and drops it on the gree. A squirrel runs out and pushes the ball into the hole for a hole in one.

Jesus turns around and starts shaking his head and says “Come on, Pop, let’s play some real golf…”

Here’s one of my friend’s responses:

“You must have a lot of time on your hands. You must have the story wrong, because can’t get a banana off a coconut tree.”

leggs – this chick is a friend. if she’s eating it up when I’m telling her how good she looks she can listen when I don’t think she’s looking so hot. now, as for me taking a cheap shot, I recently told a chick that her outfit must make her “feel” pretty. lol.

disco~ I recently told a cick that maybe she should eat some of the makeup she was using to make her face pretty so she could be pretty on the inside too. So, in other words, don’t feel bad. It is what it is…

CC – I really wasn’t being bad with my friend. I was being real. she had gone from curvy to lumpy. she’s working on getting her curvy back.

leggs – I didn’t even mean to say it. sometimes my mouth gets away from me. I don’t like old girl. there’s no secret that there’s no love lost. she recently lost some weight and is feeling real good about herself. someone else complimented her and I blurted out that I’m sure her outfit made her feel pretty. she just looked at me with that “you nasty trick” look on her face. it’s okay if she thinks it. she won’t say it. lol.

disco~ I didn’t say you were being bad. If you remember, when I first came we had a discussion similar to this one when I first came. If you are my friend, I would want you to tell me if I am not matching, dressed inappropriately, lumpy vs. curvy, etc. That’s what friends do. It was just that the phrase Leggs used made me giggle.
