Rules of dating a musician
In the beginning I was still hung up on Bad Boy, but distraction and detox (no contact with Bad Boy) really worked. Some of you were kind enough to answer my 60-second survey question: What is the single biggest challenge you’re dealing with in dating and relationships these days?
Play your stupid lottery, sit on your stupid couch in front of your stupid TV, and make your stupid excuses. Any damn thing you want to learn about you can learn about. Get out there and take it and leave the excuses for average Joe. Forget about money as emotion, it's just a damn game making money. Everyone is selfish, but there are two types of selfishness: overt selfishness and covert selfishness. They want the same thing overtly selfish guys want, money and women, but they're too scared to come right out and demand it so they play nice and hope they'll be able to manipulate that outcome. I have been poor many times but I've never been so poor I couldn't pay my bills and I've never been so poor I cried about it.The phrase “finding a man who wants to be a grown-up” came up several times. This response summarized the challenge nicely: “Meeting a man who I feel compatible with, feeling attracted to that same man AND having him treat me well.” This is what all the online dating methods call the phase. They didn't know anything about making money but they sure were adamant that college and a full time job and saving for retirement was the answer. For most of my life I've been a fool, and a lot of you probably have too. You took the time to educate yourself, you took the time to make your own money, you took the chance, you did all the work and they look at you like you got lucky and they have the gall to get enviously angry at you.
But it's not too late to wake up and start kicking ass instead of licking ass. It has often been noted that you end up exactly like the people you hang out with, so say goodbye to the losers, be elitist and hang out with the winners.
By far, the biggest challenge the respondents encountered was meeting quality men.
How do you find a guy who’s compatible, age-appropriate, and interested in a long-term committed relationship?
After the 4th time I finally smartened up and focused on moving on.
I’ve now been dating a really great guy for over 2.5 years. Which brings us to the results of the survey I did last week.
How many people have told you of the wonderful benefits of saving for retirement and how you can finally live like a king when you're 65?
