trust – a throwback

loveI wrote this about two years ago and found it in an old journal. I guess it’s true, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Enjoy!

Trust

Trust is a funny word. I mean, I guess defined it would mean the faith and hope you put into someone to follow their word. I think the Bible says something about putting your trust in man, or not to. I understand why, now.

After this past “relationship”, I’m not sure if anything is real anymore. Let alone love. See love is a side effect of trust. One of the worst kinds, in my opinion. It’s the side effect that will blind, deafen, and cripple you without a moments notice.

So when I think I smell love coming, I run. Well, maybe not run. Maybe I let it chase me a little then turn against it. I mean, I think that’s a logical thing for me to do, given my last stints with the L word. I don’t want or need it right no, so why be bothered. Sex is so much easier. But with today’s double standard, sometimes you just gotta fake feelings in order to show what you don’t feel at all. Yet, hide your true feelings — nothing. Sex and emotion hand in hand? Depends largely on who you speak with. typically, a man will say, no for women, yes for men. Typically I would say, (ala Jay-Z) dig a hole.

bartender! i’ll have one of those cute, sweet, colorful drinks with the umbrella and cherries!

Heterosexual Male Friendly?

Disclaimer: I am not an alcoholic.

Am I the only person who pays attention to what a man drinks? Before yall gang up on me, let me say this, there are a few people who are not under my personal scrutiny. This includes: married men, homosexual or bisexual men, and male friends that I have no interest in.

But for those that I go out on dates with or have a romantic interest in, I pay attention to what they drink.

I mean ladies, say you are on a date and the waiter takes your drink order. You order a Captain and Sprite. He orders a Piña Colada. WTF? Wouldn’t you raise your eyebrow? I mean what kinda man orders a Piña Colada and drinks it in public? (If you’re on a beach in the Carribean, that doesn’t count.)

And gentlemen, don’t even start. I’ve been out a couple time and ordered a Heineken instead of the cute little drink that was on the cover of the drink menu. I got a couple of raised eyebrows. One dude even had the nerve to say, “You should drink champagne, not beer.” He was so wack. Nonetheless, I try not to spring the whole “beer thing” right away. Apparently, it’s not “ladylike”. LOL

So since a lot of you want to tell us women what is “ladylike” and what is not, let me help some of you assholes gentlemen out. Here are my 3 tips to ordering a drink when out on a date.

1. Skip the fruit. If it comes garnished anyways, feed it to me. (That’s sexy!) Or throw it off of your drink and to the floor, then stomp it with great disdain. Then scream ARRRRRGGGHHHHH! FRUIT! (Shows your aggressive side. Plus it would be funny as fuck!)

2. Keep it simple. Here’s the formula: “I’ll have a {insert liquor} and {insert 1 optional mixer}.” It is always appropriate to order beer or wine.

3. Sip, don’t gulp. I’m surprised I even have to say this! This reminds me of when I invited “Jigga” over for a glass of wine. (See my Older=Better blog.) Now I knew he wasn’t the most refined individual so I simply asked him, Red or White? He said Red, and then I witnessed the the race to the bottom of the wine glass. I sat there in shock and disbelief. If it doesn’t come in a 2oz glass, you do not “take it to the head.”

Let this be a lesson to you ladies, what a man drinks says alot about who he really is.

Seriously. Marinate on that.

Enough of my truths thoughts.

What are yours?
