So my son’s barber is a cool cat. Been knowing him since we were knee high to grasshoppers. Anyways..he knows a bit about my situation. We been chatting it up, mostly about sports, and news headlines and such. Anytime he gets flirty…I deflect. He always says he had a crush on me since we were kids. I always laugh and say, you had nothing but space and opportunity to see what could happen and you never said a word to me. (not in a mean way, just sort of matter of factly). Anyways, he told me not too long ago that the way I am handling my WS is nothing short of amazing. That his girl would try and take him through the ringer if he ever did something like what my WS has…the way he has done it. Says I’m not like other women because I’m way too calm and not arguing with WS and all that stuff.

NOTE: All convos are in person at the shop. Never go out of the way to talk besides appt times.

Here is the kicker……then he says I feel drawn to you…like I could love you if you let me……ME: I won’t be letting you do that.

Now, decode that for me ……what is he tryna be a KISA…or what? I am the same jovial, loquacious person with everyone……the same story I told him, is what my best girlfriends know. If someone asks…I consider it sharing my testimony of growth, not a cry for pity or sympathy.

I’m not touching him with a ten-foot-pole. I can find another barber…..I just wonder…what he is trying to pull here.

Think you know exactly what he's trying to pull. Trying to take advantage of someone who's been through a lot.

"His girl"? So he has a SO and is saying this nonsense? That takes it to a whole 'nother level of skeevy

I can never be too sure when someone says "my girl" or "my dude". My brother used to say the same bit about his kids' mom, and they were nothing more than parents of the same kids..but he did act possessive long after they were no longer a couple.

Anecdotal, I know...but I can't call it. I just wonder for what? If dude is feeling some
type-a-way go home to ya girl and do whatever it is with her.

I just don't get it. BE single and do what you want. Why is that so hard?

I promise I will not be in a relationship for a while after my situation is final....

I'd tell him thanks but no thanks, I'm not interested in you that way. I think he needs it spelled out in capital letters, if necessary!

He isn't taking hints. If he doesn't get it when it's spelled out right in front of him, switch barbers!

Come on Nikki, You know that "my girl" is for his woman. When they say "my girl" there are strings attached regardless. Sounds to me like a playa. Nothing special about this dude. Don't feed into the game talk. He knows your a cool chick, and you are better than most woman who would get all indigent. He may like that about you...

You would tell me the same thing.

It is always nice to hear but he is pulling game on you and trying to get a little on the side. Trust!

I know yall...I know.

I guess my thing is...why do people hitch up if they wanna play the field? Seriously. Is this a cultual thing? I have friends that are single and kidless and mingle but they catch hell. WHY? Why not commend them for knowing themselves well enough to know what they want, when and with whom...and knowing enough to know they haven't found it yet?

Faithful w/Love posted 4/29/2014 13:03 PM

That is a good question. I feel they think it is a game to some extent. I think that they are insecure with themselves also. People who have good values and morals also don't do this.

Take my wh for instant. He has cheated mind body and soul. Meaning, he can talk and charm all he wants but I am on to him. He may feel he isn't doing anything bad like having an A. But, if you are on dating sites, searching females that you work with, emailing females that you work with, getting messages from females about hooking up for sex, going out with female co workers, texting your xAP, and still confessing your love for me... what does that tell you?

A culture thing??? I don't know but personally, in my little world where I live we have ALOT of playa's who are married or have a main woman. Makes me sick... And I don't understand why they just don't go and be single.

I feel ya on all that you are sayin.

I think some people can't "do" alone. So they cast someone in the role of the safety net and then continue to chase the high.

Also? Some people suck.
