We Can Just be Friends…….From Up 4 Discussion……

From JSin…..

Five words.  That’s all it takes to change the nature of a relationship.  Five words; and a person can find themselves in the friend zone.  Many of you may be aware of what the friend zone is, but for those of you who are not, the friend zone is where individuals find themselves when they are unable to establish a romantic or intimate relationship with another person.  Instead they are only able or allowed to share a platonic friendship with the person.

I’m sure that a lot of people may believe that only men can be placed in the friend zone.  Yet, that isn’t true.  Like many things in life the friend zone is a two way street.  Therefore, both men and women can find themselves in the friend zone.  The majority of the time women are the initiators of the friend zone, but there are also times when men will initiate a friend zone as well.  If individuals are initiating or being placed in the friend zone there has to be a reason.  As you may have guessed there are many reasons and they differ for both men and women.

Possibly one of the most common reasons why women will place men in the friend zone is because they couldn’t possibly see themselves being anything more than friends.  Some women may choose the friend zone route because they are not attracted to the man, but he is a good friend.  Other women may have tried to be in a relationship with a man but things didn’t work out and instead they became better friends in the process.  The reasons are endless and differ from one woman to the next.

For the rest……..Here….

Appetite….from Up 4 Discussion………

From JSin…..

Not too long ago I was in my car and decided to listen to Usher’s album Here I Stand. It had been months since the last time I listened to the album. As I made my way through each of the tracks I finally came to a song that I definitely remembered, but hadn’t heard in what seemed like forever. It was a song that was by far one of my favorites on the album. As I listened to the song the words began to speak to me and I instantly knew that I wanted to do a post on Appetite.

This song essentially is about the appetite that men have for women, especially when they are currently involved in a relationship. For the majority of men fighting their appetite is not an easy task. As a result, some men are able to curb their appetites while others find themselves indulging it. In this post I am going to touch on several aspects of the appetite; and I will be using the lyrics of Usher’s song to assist in my analysis.

.::Stay struggling with the part of me that wants to run the streets::.

Now it’s no surprise that nearly every man has an appetite for women. This alone isn’t an issue. The issue arises when a man is involved in a relationship and still feels the need to indulge his appetite for women. If his appetite grows too strong he can find himself struggling to remain faithful to his partner. At times this struggle can be overwhelming.

.:: You’d think I’d be satisfied and truthfully yes I am::.

Yet as hard as the struggle may be, more than likely the man understands that he has a good woman at home and he really doesn’t want to jeopardize their relationship. In some cases the man may truly be satisfied with the woman he is in a relationship with, but his appetite can make things complex. In such situations the man must balance love and temptation.

.:: Ever since I put that band on my hand, more and more chicks trying to get at me. Then I don’t know what to do::.

Many men who have been in relationships can attest to the fact that women seem to become more interested in them once they are in committed relationships. For whatever reason men have more women showing interest in them when they are in relationships than when they were single. Some men are able to deal with this added attention, but some allow their ego and their appetites to get the best of them. One thing that usually is consistent in this situation is that the man finds himself, at some point or another, at a crossroad. He finds himself not know what he should do. Should he remain faithful to his woman or feed his appetite.

.:: Lately I been slippin up, fantasies bout dimes on the side::.

More often than not, the man will start to gradually feed his appetite by entertaining the thoughts of hooking up with another woman. Whether the man decides to creep or not, he will likely contemplate the thought or even fantasize about how things would play out if he were to indulge his appetite.

.:: Got a girl I don’t want to lose, I don’t want to lose. Break her heart, I do want to do. I don’t want to be that fool::.
