12/9: What’s The Deal With…

Grown folks doing dumb ass stuff? Especially when it comes to dating.

In the past week I’ve heard some of the dumbest stuff I’ve ever heard in my life – like I think I lost some brain cells just hearing about this stuff.

Case #1 – A friend of a friend is casually dating a guy. She wants to be committed & monogamous, he doesn’t. She says to him “what are we? Are we exclusive?” You wanna know what he said? He said…”we’re exclusive….exclusive friends?” WTF??? What does that even mean? Exclusive friends? Does that mean they are only friends with each other or something? I cant even front – from a “playa” perspective its a good move: he tells her something close to what she wants to hear, but he isn’t actually “with” her and therefore can do whatever he wants. Needless to say, she fell for it, and thought everything was fine. How in the world are chicks falling for this? *SMH* #idontgetit

Case #2 – A work friend was telling me & my girl LM about his dating situation. He has a “boo” who he’s been dating for a while, and he’s taking her to the Carribbean on a little vacation getaway before Christmas. Anyway, LM suggested that he bring his boo to her sorority’s semi-formal event, and that’s when the dumbness started. He then stated that he couldn’t bring her, because he didnt want folks to know they were together. WTF??? You know we had to ask him about it, and then he elaborated that basically coming to an event with a woman would prevent him from being able to holla at other women. Basically, he needs to stay “single” in the streets. For real? You can take a chick to an island for some “fun in the sun” but you can’t take her to an event in town? #fail I know I’d be pissed if I found out my dude wasn’t trying to claim me so he could appear to be free…

Case #3 – Got another friend of a friend…who believes intercourse doesn’t count unless 1 party climaxes. No climax, then its not sex, and therefore it doesnt count. Once again, I say, WTF?? For real? Last I checked, once he was in there, it counted. If you fell for “just let me put the head in”…if you started & then it was wack & you stopped…if it hurt or even if you couldn’t feel it…once it was in there, it counts! No matter what! I think this is her way of keeping her “number” lower, cause this crazy rule makes absolutely no sense.

The moral of the story? I need my friends to get new friends…and I need grown folks to do better.

Am I wrong for thinking all these stories are just crazy as hell? Let me know!

    Insane. #1 story was just dumb. hate to say it, but ya girl is being dumb on purpose. #2 was pretty funny. guys don’t like to claim chicks all the time but I tell you one thing–couldnt be me.#3 is just childish. I think me and my BFF used to say that when we were 18 for jokes–because clearly any penetration counts.

    good post, good laughs.

    Great post…entertainment at its best!!!
    I love my friends, just not the idiotic things they do or fall for. Do I really have to cut them off?

  • Robin

    New friends are definitely in need.

    After reading all three situations, I just kept saying “Seriously?” the whole time.

    #1 is a mess-if a dude was your man, you’d know. and dropping the f-bomb is probably as far away as “being your man” and you can get. #2, well that dude needs to man up. and the girl is on some golddigging mess if she goes on the vacay but is cool with not going public with him. they both #fail. #3, ppl are always going to define sex how they want. if you run a race but dont cross the finish line, does that mean you never ran the race? you can’t DQ sex because someone didnt come.

    Maybe in Case #2, she was ugly; like the woman Robin Harris (RIP) use to talk about in his stand up…LMAO!
