Million Dollar Question(s)

Why is it that some people can't commit to a meaningful relationship with just one person? I don't mean dating more than just one person, that scenario is obvious that they aren't ready to committ. I mean a relationship, the exploration of, or the beginnings of wanting to see where the relationship is going?

I have witnessed so many supposedly committed relationships, fall apart, because one or both of the individuals feel that they are going to miss out on something. Curiosity is killing so many relationships. But is it curiosity or just not the right "fit" for you? Are we listening to what that person wants? Are we not paying attention to their actions as well as their words. Sometimes, folks actions contradict their words. I.E - I don't want a committed relationship with you, but yet they call you constantly and spend the majority of their time with you. That's a problem, because while that person may enjoy your company, conversation, and presence, he/she may also enjoy that with one or more individuals. So their actions belie their words.

I have first hand knowledge of dealing with someone who always told me to "do you", and for the longest time I hated that phrase, but now I understand it. While I thought we were in a committed relationship, and he acted as though we were in a relationship, I found out that we weren't, so while I was trying to do all that I could to keep us together as one...he never wanted that and insisted on doing him. I HAD to walk away from that type of person, because in the end he was no longer good for my soul. But as I sit back and go over our conversations, I never listened to what the man was saying. He told me from the beginning that he was not interested in a monogomous and/or committed relationship, so the relationship was all in my head, not his.

There are so many women and some men, that are like that. They have created this relationship in their minds, while the one person is thinking committment, the other is thinking "we're just hanging out, kicking it...whateva". This type of thinking leads to broken hearts, heart ache, and unnecessary drama. I witnessed this the other night, while out with some friends. The guy is coming onto me, while his friend is with him. To her she is in a committed relationship, to him, it is what it is...a most uncomfortable situation for me. She may not be one of my closet friends, but I like and respect her, and told him such...Another example is that I have a friend, that was disappointed in me because I invited another guest to a party, although there is nor has there ever been a conversation of exclusivity between us, he got upset. That's not my fault, he didn't listen to what I was saying. I was trying to get to know someone...

I have not allowed that to color my current relationships, well friendships, because I listen to EXACTLY what it is that men say. When they say they aren't looking for this, that, or the other, I believe them, and I don't question, bother, nor worry. I can't. If they call they call, if they don't, then they don't. If a man/woman is interested, trust me, they will call you and make their interst known. I am not talking about someone sweating you and acting pressed, but they will be interested in more than just sex. Their conversations will last longer than 5 or 10 minutes with you, and the conversation essence its effortless!

Personally, I would love a committed relationship. But I feel that because of the societal issues facing women {you know the arguement about that shortage of "good" black men} that women tend to deal with a man straying to other women rather than respecting and/or valuing themselves to say "I'm not the right woman for you". I understand that in this day and age, people are more open to different avenues of release sexually, and willing to have casual sexual relationships. That is the temporary fix until the right person comes along. But because we are mired in a quagmire of confusion, will we see that right person when they come along, because for so long our views have been skewed???

Committment takes two individuals, and as someone previously stated, just because I am not interested in having a committed relationship with them doesn't mean I don't want a committed relationship.

I feel that people are continually playing games, and as a single woman, I don't think people understand and recognize what it means to court and/or date someone. A date does not a committed relationship make, it is a process of getting to know the person. Dating is conversation, dinner, movies, bowling, sporting events, or just sitting in companionable silence. Its looking to see how that person fits into your life, and you into theirs...

Am I wrong? Help a sista out?

So Horny...It Hurts!

As usual my discussions stem from random thoughts that I have and from conversations with friends, family, & acquaintances. But we were talking about sex and levels of horniness and one of us spoke up and said, "I'm so hurts!" (Hmmm...I thought about this and came you...)

Have you ever gotten to the point where you are so horny it hurts! Its a physical ache deep in your bones. Every muscle and sinew, every step, stretch, and run, is so physically excrutiating to the point of being unbearable! You know sometimes your eyes cross, you get bumps on your face, and your nerves are completely on edge. You say your are angry and frustrated when in fact all you need is a little hot monkey sex to get you back in order...In situations like that, your body has a tendency to shut down on itself.

As I write this, I wonder how many of us are so horny that it hurts? I honestly feel that dyck and puzzy are a dime a dozen...anyone, and I do mean anyone, regardless o…

Are Women Whores for Money?

I have been thinking about this topic for a minute and I plan to discuss it at length soon, but for right now, I just have one question, or rather an observation.

Is it me or are women whores for money? Are women whores for a certain lifestyle to the point that they sell their souls to live the good life? They don't care if their man is phucking half of the nation so long as he brings the bacon home to them. They don't care if he looks like the broad side of a bus or the bottom of a shoe, so long as his dollars are long and his pockets are deep. I've heard women say, {self included} that so long as he was making money that he could do any damn thing he wanted...but that is a hypothetical situation. In real life, having dated men with money, I realized one thing - they are the most arrogant assholes around! So I had to say to myself what was more important, that man, that man and his money, that man his money and his lifestyle I was enthralled by, or my self respect. Guess w…

Women Are Emotionally Retarded

The topic on women not listening sparked a madddd debate between a friend and I.

I am of the belief that if a woman is interested in a man and that man she is interested in or in lust with doesn't reciprocate her feelings she should move on. She should remove herself from this man and also ensure that he is no longer in her immediate inner circle/core of friends, but rather on the outer fringes of her life. I was told that by my saying this, then I believe that women are emotionally unable to handle rejection and therefore must cast their net out to others hoping that someone else will bite. Rather we (women) should keep this man around as a friend and not involve ourselves with other men, just because the man that the woman is interested in is not interested in her. He went on to liken it to a woman shooting buckshots until she shoots and catches someone.

I went on to state that if women find themselves in this emotional quagmire of a situation with a man whose feelings aren't …
