    That'll Never Happen

    Oh hell no..I'm good at relationship games.  Good at spotting them, that is.   Actually it's  easy to see the old pattern setting up, again.  Hearing the same excuses or there lack of.  No no..If things seem weird, reminding me of a rerun I...

    Relationship Games

    I think relationships are not meant to be played. It's something we need to nurture and understand, we capture each moment when we talk or say "hi" with pleasure and seriousness. I don't understand why others would think relationships are meant to be a joke.

    Doesn't Work On Me

    No matter what the relationship is . . . I don't play stupid head games. Doesn't work on me. Frustrates the hell out of people but I won't bite. You want to deal with me be straight up . . . if not you'll only get frustrated and ignored.  No more head games . . . .

    Like I Never Learned Anything

    I offered to not contact her on her vacation so that she could focus on her husband. I told her if she took me up on that, I would assume that was the end of the relationship. So she took me up on it, except she told me how anxious that made her feel, knowing she loved me...

    I Just Don't

    I don't play games with anyone, but especially in relationships. I grew up a long time ago.

    Nope I'm Not That Petty

    If I come across a guy that does, I try to tell him I don't appreciate it and if he refuses to stop, I just make myself unavailable to him. I have better things to do than try to keep a man like that amused. I am getting better at recognizing some of the games men like to play...

    I always sound and feel awkward and don't know what to say. Talking face-to-face is fine and texting is good. But I don't like talking on the phone.

    If you have nothing else good to say, don't say it. We are grown up now and should know what's right from wrong. Spreading hate is wrong.
