Believe in love at first sight?

I consider myself a romantic and hardcore believer in true love.  That being said, I don’t know if I buy into the idea that you can fall in love at first sight.  Have I seen incredibly beautiful men and swooned?  Absolutely. Did I want to pledge eternal love forever, ever (ever? ever?) – not so much.

I have heard people say that they knew the moment they laid eyes on their love.  I just question what that really means?  Can you actually fall in love with someone after one meeting? Is it the kind of love that lasts?  What if you fall for the image or idea of that person? What happens when their actual personality is revealed?

Maybe I am cynical but is love at first sight really possible?  Have you ever experienced it?

kimmie ~ it definitely is hard. All women should take an exotic dance class or two. It is quite liberating. I still remember one of my favorite moves and one of my most uncomfortable moves. Loved the stop and frisk and hated the “lioness slithering across the floor” look (lololol).

Grab a buddy, find a class, get some inexpensive hooker shoes, big shirt and go have some fun. It’s something you will never forget!

To be honest, I think I can teach a class. Let me know if you want to sign up (lolol).

I had a friend take pole dancing classes and she even installed a pole in her apartment. She’s pretty good at it and says it is a great workout. I don’t think I could hold myself up on a pole!

Ex- Disco antagonize her dudes so much with her jokes all they think is I am going to thrust hard in the puddy cat… lol

Quite a few women think they are good in the bedroom…Not.. They need to take move those hips classes and watch a few movies and get certified in mouth to _ _ _ _ actions…hehehehe

No more outbursts, Leggs? Boo!!!

Slim – I blame the determined thrusting and crazy tongue stab techniques on porn. Hey, maybe that’s where some women get inspired to over act from too.

Was there a list of what the men do which doesn’t really work for us?

Kimmie- Following up on your post about being sick of hearing what women should do, what about Pat Robertson telling a woman whose husband cheated to get over it? He said: “What you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander.” Really “Reverend”- go have a seat! As a matter of fact, have several.

Kimmie- Lol @ “sit his old dried-up behind down.” Exactly, some men (and women) are going to do whatever they want no matter what they have at home.

Kimmie..why would u let ur man go out of the house hungry?

If any women can answer this truthfully and admit to themselves their part in either fulfilling or not then we str8.

Where is Raqi..,she has a handle on this issue.

Feed ur man…let him leave the house tired from spend..and uall will be good.

I bet u, single bistches out there know what imtalkbout!

mytwo ~ when we do have outbursts, they’re not good so it’s good that we don’t have many.

Ex ~ glad you feel that particular man of the cloth is in your corner.

I agree, when I hear it this morning, I said out loud “shut up and bite me!” If you keep a wonderful home your husband won’t stray. And, “men are men, thats what they do” in so many words…

Women….

Look at it this way:

Do u cook good meals at your house?

So,does ur man go to Mcdonalds to buy a happy meal even after ual are done eating?

Unless he has some food affinity issue making him obese even,it ain’t gon happen. Yu cook good meals at home,he eats at home.

It’s very easy to understand

Problem is y’all get married after that Big rock on your fingers and that’s all u talk about,flaunting that to ur friends . U have arrived?

Gues what,it’s maintenance mode time.

Feed feed feed feed him

That kitty don’t expire so what’s the problem!

Exiled – LOL! My hubs and I are a team. Nobody goes lacking. If one is coming up short, we all coming up short and it gets checked. We play our positions and the weight of keeping the marriage together is no more on one than the other.

See what happens when folks get carried away? LOLOL…like my mama said “play with a puppy and they’ll lick you in the mouth.” Freaky gone wrong…lololol

Anyhoo, I popped back in cause of something really nice that happened to me and I wanted to post it….y’all don’t mind do you? K, thanks!!

After my talk with my manager this morning, I get an email about 45 minutes later of an award (points to redeem stuff…going for a notebook)!! Not much touches me, and especially in the work place cause I keep my distance. Well, she’s tried really hard to repair the damage done in our relationship from past stuff “ballplayer” stuff. Me? I’m not one to “harbor” stuff. I’on have time. Yes, I say what I gotta in the moment, but really harboring blackens the soul. I just leave that to other (you know…hate, tossing shade, etc etc etc). Anyhoo the award comes and she’s copied every exec in our LOB with a really well written piece on me and my accomplishments and leadership skills. And it was dated two days ago. I have been receiving congratulatory emails since this morning. Just had a really nice “back and forth” with the ballplayer’s manager.

What a way to end the week and start the weekend!! Alright lovelies, I’m at home “chillin” as Bro Man would say…I hope y’all have a super fantab rest of the day and weekend!!
