A Sunday Kinda Love… December 22, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — FlawedBeauty @ 12:01 am

Ok…so it’s true….I’m kinda an old soul.  Don’t ask me why, but I really love me some Etta.

Yes, I want a Sunday kinda love.  Amongst all the kinds out there this one is most appealing.  It carries that relaxed easiness.  It’s best described as a walk in the French Quarter late Sunday as the sun sets on the Mississippi.  *le sigh*

Let me break down what this is…cause I’m thinking we all need a Sunday lover…

1. A Love That’s On the Square-He is Mr. Dependable…Johnny on the spot…hitting that spot whenever you need him to do so.  He’s not concerned with what his boys think.  So what if he has to not go to the club on Saturday ’cause he’s got church and brunch with you and the folks…he loves you and he’s gonna do what he needs to do.

2. Someone to Show You The Way-Now, we’re always talking about how we need a man to lead.  I can lead.  It’s most definitely not a problem…but I need a man with vision, direction, purpose.  Someone who’s not afraid to say “we’re definitely headed to the right”.  If he can say it strong and with conviction then I can most definitely make sure it happens.

3. Someone to keep you warm-It’s December.  This one should be self-explanatory.  Everyone needs that late night human contact…a brush of the hand, brushing the hair out of your face and making out under the mistletoe 😉

So this kinda follows the idea of list that we’ve been talking about on blogs for about the past six or so months.  So Etta’s given her Sunday love requirements.  What makes you all swoon…?  Get romantic, get pragmatic…just let me know what you need a man to do.  Whether it’s breakfast in bed, paying the bills or just listening to your day…I’m ever so curious loves!

  1. Love this song Jac.. I think I have a renewed love for Ms. Etta.

    1. Patience: When I say I’m not ready to have s3x, don’t tempt me… (this probably goes with number 2)

    2. Respect.

    3. Honesty: Be truthful, be yourself. Don’t play the part of the player if u look stupid doing it.

    4. Control. I want to be held, but does it always have to turn into a full on grind session.

    First of all GREAT list Jacster! I’m appreciating it very much.

    Gotta add a dose of some good old HONESTY. My blog bro NoMo has this down. I’ll respect you forever if you just tell me like it is and allow me to make my OWN decision and CHOICE fully informed.

    Spontaneity. I myself tend to be a very routine person, I love structure and security. But every now and then it would be nice to have somebody to just pull me out of the monotony of my day and show me something new and different.

    Mental Stimulation. If you can feed my mind. Have an intelligent conversation with me…I’ll love you forever.

    Spiritual. Know GOD. Know HIS ROLE. Know you can do nothing outside of him.

    I agree with this one Jay-Boogie. 😉

    Ahh…This is SUCH a good song! Ms. Etta hits it RIGHT on the head!

    In addition to some of the things already listed, here are the things that make me swoon…

    1. Understanding how important the little things are – I don’t get too bent out of shape if we can’t do GRAND scale things all the time. But, a sincere (keyword!) small gesture can mean more to me than spending 8 hrs together and you’re on your BB for 7.5 of them!

    2. Making me laugh – All the other mess fades away, but laughing together keeps you young and keeps your spirit together.

    3. A healthy obsession with football – I had to make the list a little lighter!
