Dating: Step your game up

When you find yourself stuck in a dating rut, you probably don’t even realize that you have started to let things slip. Your efforts become less then enthusiastic. You start going through the motions. This is the best time to take a break from dating and focus on something else.

The dating scene in Atlanta is all about image and personality. You want to be able to stand out and make a connection with someone you find attractive. If you are not into it, it definitely comes across as aloof, uninterested, or obnoxious. Sometimes we have to step our game up and become a little more sharp!

Do you ever feel as if you are in a dating rut? What are ways to break out of it?

What are some ways to step your dating game up in flirting, mingling, or approaching someone you are interested in?

Happy Friday!

Blackfoote – Sho nuff. EWF

Do you remember the 21st night of September?
Love was changing the mind of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away
Our hearts were ringing
In the key that our souls were singing
As we danced in the night
Remember, how the stars stole the night away, yeah yeah yeah

Hey hey hey
Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day
Ba duda, ba duda, ba duda, badu
Ba duda, badu, ba duda, badu
Ba duda, badu, ba duda

Would You Mind
Would you mind if I touch, if I kiss
If I held you tight in the morning light? Yeah
Would you mind if I said
How I felt tenderly tonight again?

‘Cause I never ever felt
This way in my heart before, oh
Love has found its way
In my heart, yeah

Would you mind if I looked in your eyes till
I’m hypnotized and I lose my pride? yeah
Would you mind if I make love to you
Till I’m satisfied once again?

‘Cause I never ever felt
Felt this way in my heart oh before, oh
Love has found its way
In my heart tonight

Cel.would have made a mental note and left regardless.

I was skeptical it would be that but was curious still what ‘Good head’ business wld be going on…

Like with any ‘good thing’ say,a curvy woman that’s intriguing….

A lion will gaze at it…look closely…maybe asking around…taking a mental note…

That’s what a Big Bull does Cel

Cel – you prolly can dance but too uptight to drop it wondering what everybody gon say. I bet you broke a sweat at home in the mirror looking at yaself. I know you, hahaha. J/k j/k

Black – quit playin man, Embrace it. Repeat after me; I am a Wolf, I am a Wolf. Lol

Ex- stop listening to the barbershop talk. Its some bruhs that that are all inclusive. Ask the Ladies they’ll tell you. Its one thing to break backs but you gotta make the toes curl and cramp up to the point where they are tingly all over and tap out.

I resent that!!! lolol Now you should I don’t live worry about others. If I don’t drop it, it’s cause I don’t wanna…lol

I do remember getting popped/smacked by my oldest brother because I was butt nekkid, after a bath (can’t remember how old but a little girl), rubbing (very animated here) myself down with babypowder, singing Donna Summer’s Love to Love You Baby. He was smacking and saying “you so fast, get some clothes on”…lolol I will NEVER forget that.

And no MMello, I wasn’t feeling on myself. Heck I didn’t even have training bra knots at the time.

That’s why folks who are cheap to ladies and moan and groan bout money are a turn off even to some if us guys…

Ladies gotta have the money to buy stuff to spruce and clean themselves up so when menfolk rummage down there.it’s smelling roses,diamonds,oozing and sizzling with fresh aromas.
