Relationship Realities Week on BnB and 5 on 5


It's about that time, good people. For those of you new to BnB, we used to do a "special" week abut four times a year called Relationship Week... and then whole blog turned into relationship life. And now I basically blog about whatever pops into my mind. But Valentine's Day is this week so let's just take it there. We'll start with some getting to know you questions today. We'll have some interactive stuff later in the week. And back from a long dormant hiatus, The BnB Radio Network will re-launch on Wednesday at 8:00pm central/ 9:00pm eastern. +Carolyn Edgar and I will be joining forces with +Slim Jackson and +Darryl Frierson to discuss where the heck all these s-called relationship "experts" came from and what to do now that they're here.

Today let's do a Five on Five. Five questions, five answers and then it's your turn to answer. I was sent a list of 50 questions (excessive) about relationships and asked to answer and return. That seemed like a lot of sharing. But here are five that I found interesting:
1) Is the last person you texted someone you're in a relationship with?
My younger brother and I have a life-long relationship, so I'll say yes. 
2) Do you remember the first person you kissed, how old were you and do you know where they are now?
Yes I do. I was 14. And no I don't know where he is. No clue. 
3) Do you believe everyone deserves a second chance?
Hmmm. Depends on what they did to blow the first one. 
4) Who was the last person you danced with and are you in love with them?
I'm not naming names. In love with them? The votes are still out on that one. 
5) Could you be in a relationship with someone who doesn't make you laugh?
Absolutely not. Humorless conversation is so not the hotness.
It's your turn, answer one, answer all or merely discuss...

Wow a sleepy Monday in Bougieland...since no one else has piped up I'll poke my head in from lurkdom.

1) My best friend from college, so yes I'd say I have a relationship with her.

2) Billie Addoway, between a minivan and a car parked in front of his mother's house, we were both 13. Unfortunately, he died in a car accident right before our high school graduation.

3) Yes, generally I do believe in 2nd chances and have benefited from that opportunity myself.

4) I did the Cupid Shuffle at the bowling alley with my neighbor Saturday night, does that count? She's pretty cool, but I save the love for my husband :).

5) No, laughter does the heart good like medicine, so its a necessity.

1) Is the last person you texted someone you're in a relationship with?
No

2) Do you remember the first person you kissed, how old were you and do you know where they are now?
Yes. I was 19 (yes, 19 and in college) and I don't know where she is now.

3) Do you believe everyone deserves a second chance?
No, because there is a reason why I move on, and there isn't anything you can do to prove that you have changed.


4) Who was the last person you danced with and are you in love with them?
Random woman asked me to dance at the club I DJ at. Kinda weird to be in love with her, right?


5) Could you be in a relationship with someone who doesn't make you laugh?
Not only could I not be in a relationship with some who doesn't make me laugh, I can't be in a relationship with someone who doesn't laugh at the same things I do. Shared experiences and sharing experiences are bedrocks of a great relationship.

1. Girl, I don't text if I can help it. #oldschool
2. Yes, 16. Last I heard he was on wife #4 or 5 in LA.
3. Depends on what we're talking about. Relationships? Maybe. A crime spree? No.
4. My husband and yes. Still after lo these many years :)
5. The ability to both laugh and cry with one another is a huge indicator of successful chemistry. Couldn't do without it.

1) Is the last person you texted someone you're in a relationship with?
Yes. I text my guy every morning and vice versa. Since he wakes up super early he usually texts me first.




2) Do you remember the first person you kissed, how old were you and do you know where they are know?
I do remember him. I was 13. It was a high school dance we were dancing to 'End of the Road' by Boyz II Men when he kissed me. I think he's in our hometown still.

Yes. I danced with my guy on NYE. I am definitely in love with him.




5) Could you be in a relationship with someone who doesn't make you laugh?

Some people don't even deserve a 1st chance.

Jubi The Great said...

1) Is the last person you texted someone you're in a relationship with?

Nope, but its someone that I know would like a relationship with me. I'm on the fence.




2) Do you remember the first person you kissed, how old were you and do you know where they are now?

Yup. I was 14. It actually happened at school. He & I are FB friends, he's married now.




3) Do you believe everyone deserves a second chance?

Nope. I wouldn't even say some ppl deserve forgiveness, depending on the situation. In my experience, second chances are just another chance for the same person to screw you over & do you dirty. No thanks.




4) Who was the last person you danced with and are you in love with them?

Some random guy at a party & definitely not.




5) Could you be in a relationship with someone who doesn't make you laugh?

Nope. Having a sense of humor is really important to me. And i can find humor in almost anything, so if he never makes me laugh, that's a sign.

Cyn said...

1) Is the last person you texted someone you're in a relationship with?
Yep. My honey and I text throughout the day.



2) Do you remember the first person you kissed, how old were you and do you know where they are now?
I do. After a 5 to 10 year bid he found me on myspace 5 years ago and I think we were FB friends for awhile but after a friend purge he didn't make the cut.


3) Do you believe everyone deserves a second chance?
Depends on what they did and how apologetic they are. They may get a 2nd chance but not in the same role they used to hold.

Yes and yes.


5) Could you be in a relationship with someone who doesn't make you laugh?

Yes, I was in the 7th grade and we were in the back of the class playing pass the paper during a movie day in class. I kissed one person, became incredibly shy and stopped playing. Smh, LOL! According to Facebook, he's currently engaged to his second baby mama, has two kids and lives in the south.

It depends on how the relationship ended the first time.
