Dating other people?

There is a period of time before you have had “the talk” when you are still keeping your options open.  It’ s common to juggle different people that you are interested in.  You’re single, you’re entitled.  We are all adults, here, right?  Still there is something that changes the dynamic when you are faced with your competition.

The situation was not planned, but my friend Curt was on a date with a woman and they were approached by another love interest.  Awkward!  Thankfully, Curt is smart about who he dates. There were no embarrassing reality tv fight scenes.  There was, however, a little bit of cold shoulder action after the woman left.

So, he does not feel that she had a “right to get mad” because she knew that he was seeing other people.  When you are casually dating, should it really bother you when you find out that they are dating other people?

How much information would you want to know about your competition?

Are you obligated to share details about who else you are interested in or is that private?

I found it funny when he was talking about how he hung out with the neighbor and how he’d see him outside doing ‘regular stuff’….said, wasn’t anything exciting about that. lol

Ummm…I believe “white” america and stations all over the country (maybe the world) are playing that dude’s interview. He was crazy and funny.

Ever notice how many crazy white folks are put on the tv when there’s a tornado or other natural disaster? Usually, it’s the most country, white trash people.

Oh…good afternoon

I thought it was awful that her (I think it was Amanda’s) mother died before she was found. I sure she died of a broken heart. And to be found, only to find out your mommie is gone. Annnnd, to come out with a kid :shock:

Why is ‘everything’ racism guys?

That’s a pretty bad view of the world.

Positivity should grow from inside uall.

I jes said it! :lol:

Was that radio guy living under a bridge for years(drug addict) black by the way?

Dude looked real off first time he popped on the tvs

If I’m not mistaken he was white,right..

So..this putting of brown people on tv who look off is just another ‘fact-barren’ conspiracy theory!

They’re All are anyway!

I was thankful that the 3 had each other and it wasn’t just one person enduring all that pain w/no where to deflect it. The 3 musketeers survived, despite all the harshness and delivery of baby(ies).

The radio guy (guess mean the one with the deep voice) was a black man with a white woman as his gf.

Supposedly, he finally got his act together, moved into a really nice home and is back off the grid. Haven’t heard anything about him in quite some time.

Disco ,yes they keep in real in Cleveland, Ohio.

Not worry about the clean-up of Mr. Charles, but what this does bring to light is the ability of our FBI and police departments inability to solve extremely important cases. This situation calls out for the White House, FBI and all the police departments around the country to change their way of thinking and put the manpower and resources on cases that continully go unsolved.

We need to legalized mary jane and put those resources to solving kidnapping, child prostution, slavery, domestic violence, etc.

You’re right, ITL. Done with it. Not like she’s gonna come back with any real evidence anyway! :-)

Slim – I read earlier about you with the title tax. Someone posted the link to the form that you need to fill out and take in with your original bill of sale. They will opt you in and figure out if you owe anything else towards the new tax to opt in.

DuShawn: yes, it’s either immediately all about me or fuggedabaddit. If I’m not feeling that way toward her, I’m not dating her in the first place. My approach is not casual; if it were all that casual, I wouldn’t even call it dating. I’d call it booty, and hey, there’s plenty to be said in favor of that too, I suppose. Set expectations likewise, and so on.

hey bluz, itl. y’all play nice now.

durty – I was just talking about the mess going on in Cleveland. despite finding these 3 cleveland is dealing with a lot of recent missing persons cases. add to that, their police are dropping the ball in other areas too (like thinking a dead black woman’s body was a deer on the side of the road and driving right past the body despite folks’ reporting seeing a body).

To all my blog Scandalites, this is pertaining to the identity of the mole:

According to Scandal’s showrunner and creator, Shonda Rhimes, the mole’s identity will leave fans stunned.

“When we revealed who the mole was to the cast, cast members literally got up from the table and ran around the table screaming, which was hilarious,” said Rhimes to the Hollywood Reporter. “Then when we revealed the twist on the twist of who the mole was, I thought I’d have to sedate cast members because people were freaking out, which was awesome.”

Rhimes says it’s not just the identity of the mole that will be a shocker, but it’s who he/she is working with that will cause folks to freak out. “We’re really proud of who the mole is, that’s a pretty surprising twist, but it’s even bigger than that,” she followed up.

Cleveland is my husband’s hometown. His dad’s job sent them there, otherwise they had no family ties there. His parents have moved here. He has a few friends still up there. He said he would never want to live there again, though. I am going to ask him what his friends are saying about what’s going on up there.

random – to get back on race issues – lol. I went to a black doctor and she told me I was good, those BMI scales aren’t for us. I went to a white doctor (weighing the exact same amount) and I swear she was insinuating that I was overweight and need to up my exercise game. lol.
