Admin Note: I’m sure a blogging something this week…Cuzzo is taking an unwanted break from us, but promises to be back next week.
I’ve got a very good friend who I sometimes think is absolutely nuts love and adore. Over the past 4 or 5 months ago he has begun dating a woman who is 7 years his junior. Anyways, when he first met her I thought she was great. Just young enough to not be jaded, but old enough to have found herself (somewhat) and know how to act with grace, charm and wit.
Boy was I wrong! In recent weeks she has proven herself to be incompetent, disrespectful and unaware of society and what is or is not deemed as acceptable. I know, I know some of you are asking “But Jac, what exactly is acceptable?” Well, my dears, that’s exactly what I’m going to detail to you.
1. Time-Yes, you read me right. I am not talking about the amount of time you spend with your mate either, rather I am talking about being respectful of their time. This may seem like something trivial to those of us who are reading because it is likely something that we take for granted, but imagine the person you are dating invites you to be somewhere at 4pm. You are running about ten minutes late and you call to let them know. Your SO tells you that they will be leaving home soon, because they completely lost track of time (since the clock on their computer is wrong) is this acceptable? I think not….What about you?
2. Lifestyle-You cannot stand to be alone. I know Jada’s brought this up once before. I’m sorry but if at 26 years old you cannot stand to be alone with your own thoughts, that is a serious issue. Apparently every other time in life you have been alone something happens to you. Well…guess what? Life happens. Bad things happen whether you are apart from others or with them. Does this mean you constantly impinge upon your SO’s right to privacy and alone time? Beyond that, what if you have “bad habits” that your SO has admitted not liking or not being able to tolerate due to extenuating circumstances? Does that mean you say “I quit” then do it behind their back?
3. The Man/Woman Dance-Many of you are probably gonna disagree with me here….we’ve talked about how during courtship there’s a dance that men and women do…well once in a relationship that kinda continues. I’m not saying women should always cook or always clean, but ladies…if he’s a man…a real man (and that’s coming up Tuesday) then you should want to support him. It shouldn’t matter that cooking bores you or it makes you hot…if you have a good man treat him as such.
So ladies and gents, here’s my top 3 on the immature woman list. Have any of you dated this woman? Were/Are you this woman? Do you think my friend should cut his losses or try & work with her more? What other bad habits can you not tolerate in dating?
