Why are taken people so tempting? 

By Wise Diva

Why is it that when you are single and ready to mingle you sometimes hit a dry spell where no one seems interested in you. The minute you find someone and become involved, you get approached all the time! It’s funny how men tell me that they get more attention from women when they wear their wedding ring.

I remember meeting one guy who said he only dated married women or women who had a live-in boyfriend. He seemed to get some twisted satisfaction from being the man that they turned to when things got messy at home.

What is it about taken people that makes them so attractive to everyone?

Why does it seem so many are willing to be the side action?

Have you ever noticed that you get more attention when you are seeing someone special or in an exclusive relationship?

I'm out...have a great evening to whomever's still here...

...the blog needs an intervention.  Maybe tomorrow if we have enough people we can Zane for  old times' sake.

Peace

I have always liked the Spurs and how they play team basketball and the core has been together twelve years, HOWEVER, age has finally caught up with them.  I still think they would have a better chance to beat the Heat.  To think they had a 5 pt lead with 26 sec remaining and R Allen drain the 3 from the corner...just dam!!   As Barkley says often, a jump shooting team can't win  championship....OKC

Well, it could always be worse.  You could be one of many that do not have a job.

They were starting to actually show changes and now the stuff I was excited about has been postponed until Sept...I don't believe it will even happen now.  I'm back in the same boat of being frustrated and miserable at my job...

Don't let them get your hopes up. It's like dating don't believe what you hear believe what you see.

It's not about meeting friends...it's about the big boss promising positive changes for me and then not following through.  I'm just tired of getting excited here and then let back down...I hope I can find something else soon.

You mean basketball season isn't over yet?  ;-)  I'm always amazed at how long their season is...

Sassy, for some reason I think the Heat want to finish the Pacers off in Miami. By far worse performance by James in playoff, hence the foul troubles early.  Heat will dust them up next game.  Spurs are a well oiled machine that beats you with fundamental and keep chipping away. If OKC can stay consistent with the speed and attacks they will win...but they can't stay consistent.  Ibaka is the Xman lol

Side stepping....soo any thoughts on the game last night?  I think that dude blowing in LeBron's ear had him off kilter...hell that among other things but that was by far his worst playoff performance EVER.

I'm anxious to see how San Antone rebounds in tonight's game...Popovich looked like he was about to burst a blood vessel the other night.

I sure hate to see this blog die...anyone talked to disco to find out why she hasn't been on yet?  I wonder if she can't get in...

Afternoon everyone!  I see it's a slow blog day again...I've been in meetings.  I used to have a habit of being attracted to what I couldn't get.  That's never a good ending...always end up with some kind of hurt feelings...No more for that!


O/T - So...I've been talking about some good, positive changes happening here at work that I have been excited about.  Well...this morning, I was told that the changes will be postponed until probably September.  I'm so not happy about this.  I don't really trust them.  Guess I need to go back to looking for another job...very frustrated about this...

Hey, when did the blog format change and why was it done?

I'm not sure if I like it.

I concur with hitting a dry spell.  Guess it's not my season for love.

But, taken people don't appeal to me.  I'm selfish.  I don't like to share.

You're right...I've been thinking about some of the comments made since we "moved" here.  I think there needs to be a blog version of a "come to Jesus" meeting...or maybe we just need a huge overhaul...

I don't know but yeah this is like watching grass grow...

What other blogs are some of you guys on...maybe I'll check those out.  No offense/disrespect Diva...but you see what's happening here...or whether what's not.

Hey everyone


No thoughts on this one, don't find excitement in something I can't have. 

Sassy Me -)

I think it's the allure with the forbidden....regardless of what it is.  I think it's human nature that starts when we're children.  If you think about it, you see it all the time.  When you tell a child NOT to do something, it heightens the excitement and makes them want to do it anyway....just to see why you warned them against it in the first place.

I feel this carries over into adulthood.  Doing something or going somewhere...hell ANYthing risque that we're told not to do holds a level of excitement with it....

Regarding otherwise taken people, I think the same thing holds true.  Now when it comes to side pieces and folks willingness to be such...I think that's a desperate, thirsty, low self esteem type situation...

Morning!

Have you ever noticed that you get more attention when you are seeing someone special or in an exclusive relationship? Yes and sometimes it sucks because I am loyal so I may miss a good catch...lol.

I agree that taken people somehow are more interesting to many. I had people that wouldn't give me the time of day when I was single and when I got married, they were constantly flirting with me and some even came right out with what they were interested in. "We can keep each other company" and "Well, I don't want a relationship with you" were two of the more common lines. I haven't strayed, but I have to say, the bad part of me sure raised a ruckus. Best/Worst saying I ever heard about this "You haven't had REAL sex until you do it with someone else's wife." Pretty sad to say that, but some associates swear that it's true.

Have you ever noticed that you get more attention when you are seeing someone special or in an exclusive relationship?  You get more attention due to you are radiating happiness , people are drawn in to your glow.


Why does it seem so many are willing to be the side action? Well i guess the ladies get money and gifts without having to be the maid, and the guys don't have to worry about a relationship or her asking for one he doesn't have to preform household duties.. etc


What is it about taken people that makes them so attractive to everyone?  its not attractive to me, i believe that is a whole lot of drama just waiting to happen....
