For the life of me I can never understand double standards and how people think they can get away with them.

I’ve thought this many times. My absolutely stunning drop dead gorgeous girlfriend and I are getting prepared to go out. I get dressed super fast because I really have nothing more “dress casual” than a pair of jeans and polo shirt. I have a sports coat I used to wear with my jeans and polo shirt ensemble, but every year that sports coat gets smaller and smaller. Go figure. I think it was made in China so you know all the problem they have with their quality controls over there. The coat is most likely defective. Back to my story though, I can be dressed and she is still applying makeup. Then she walks out the bathroom and asks “How do I look?”. Continue reading
What Chili wants doesn’t matter- The plight of a regular guy that has to deal with the “female list”
Recently, I heard Chili (1/3 of the R&B Group TLC) and newly found reality star of VH1’s “What Chili Wants”, on the Steve Harvey Morning Show. Chili was talking about the upcoming season of “What Chili Wants” and it left me sitting by my radio asking “Why in the world would VH1 do a second season of this show?” Then, just a few minutes later I realized that this is the same network that will milk the life out of a piece of another show….turning it into 3 more series of reality shows. (Case in point, Flavor of Love-all three seasons, followed by Strange Love with Flavor Flav, followed by I Love New York, followed by I Love New York 2, followed by a Real Chance at Love with Real and Chance followed by Real Chance at Love 2…….see my pattern?)
It is one of the worst things to find out about your current relationship. You see an old picture of the two of them together, or you find an old Valentine’s Day card he sent to her or………..they are still friends on Facebook. You find out his name and pull up his page. The profile loads and you find yourself in a moment where the only thing that really fits the situation is “Damn”. It happens. Life happens. Shyt happens. And at this point you just have to make sure the shyt doesn’t hit the fan. Because when shyt hits the fan it splatters and it takes a lot of Pine Sol to clean up. Cleaning up shyt is rarely pleasant. Obviously, finding out your girlfriend use to get tossed up by the Old Spice Guy (before he was the Old Spice Guy) can be very intimidating. How you handle this situation going forward can and will affect you and your relationship.
Yesterday was Valentine’s day right? Well if you are in relationship, I would hope that if you celebrated it with your S/O, you shared gifts of the like. If not… oh well. But what happens when you ARE in a ‘ship (plantonic, romantic, cut buddies…etc) and there are certain “expectations” and you/him/her don’t fulfill them?
