How are you managing your Tuesday today!? Whatever your plans are for today, hopefully you handle business and get home safe to your friends and/or family. I have posted the links to my latest podcast episodes down below. I have a rather risque podcast topic coming up on one-night stands. In the past in my younger years, that is something I would have feared speaking on never mind doing. After all, I graduated high school a virgin. Going into boot camp was a wild experience with 87 other women. I remember sitting in a circle after bedtime and everyone was sharing their raciest sexual encounters. Sadly, I felt weird for being one of two virgins in the entire company! I was intending on saving myself for marriage. It’s a rather honest and taboo subject even today. Melissa just tells me to record and let her know later since those private conversations are the best ones and not ones where she knows she’s being recorded. Therefore, stay tuned for that podcast topic that is coming very soon! We plan to discuss our most embarrassing moments when we can get together and speak on it. Over the past 14-years of our friendship, we have had quite a few adventures that yielded some memorable moments. Now, I stumbled upon a requested question that almost seems like the same theme. The topic for this discussion on this post about a person being addicted to another person. I believe that I have had some past experiences where I felt addicted to another person. I have had that addiction in the past that was during both the lust stage and the love stage. It would happen if their love making skills were super on point!! There are some folks who will say that it is best to get into a relationship with someone who is a person where they like you more than you like them. Perhaps this is a preservation mode? You are asking for extreme heartbreak if you continue a relationship when you are the person who holds the relationship in the highest regard. What do you think about this topic? Deep down, everyone knows what lane the are in during a relationship. People can pretend all they want that the feelings are on equal footing. However, you know who is the person more invested in your relationship. I’m just hoping that the person less invested does not resort to taking advantage of their partner. In the event that both parties are in high lust, this relationship can become volatile and a 5-alarm fire waiting to happen in the event there are problems. Then again, those highly charged relationships are the things that film, books, and songs are made to model after. Here is the Quora question and my response below:
“What does it mean when a guy says “I’m addicted to you”?”by SxnnySunflowers
“In my mind, the term, “addicted” is highly charged and mighty in power in my mind when it comes to a relationship. In terms of drugs, it means that a person digs their claws into the drug of choice with every fiber of their being and every aspect. Let’s review the actual textbook definition of the term addicted:
how to pronounce addicted
How to say addict in English? Pronunciation of addict with 3 audio pronunciations, 32 synonyms, 3 meanings, 11 translations, 9 sentences and more for�…
physically and mentally dependent on a particular substance, and unable to stop taking it without incurring adverse effects.”she became addicted to alcohol and diet pills”.
INFORMAL- enthusiastically devoted to a particular thing or activity. “he’s addicted to computers”.
Well, with the definition reviewed, it appears that being addicted to a person is less intense than taking a substance. I agree that different people have different ways of viewing to what degree they perceive that they are addicted to the object, aka the person, of their affection. While one person may have dipped their toes in the water of addiction, another person may be absolutely skinny dipping while turnt up while in the water. I tend to believe that when a person states that they are addicted to another person, they perceive that they have a strong range of emotions and feel like they cannot move forward in life without the other person. This addiction can be extremely intense and may come with conditions. You may find someone perfect until you uncover a flaw. This flaw may be the rip cord to cause a person to withdraw from their addiction on another person. Does that mean that the person with conditions is less addicted? No, I think it’s about perception. Yes, I believe that people can have varying degrees of addiction intensity. This can be for any addiction being focused on. A light or heavy addiction is still an addiction. A person’s true desire to change is what triggers removing themselves from a person and/or substance. I tend to believe that drugs have a stronger emotional, physical, and psychological addiction on a person. Then again, if a person offers the same range of emotions that a drug emits, it’s possible to have the same level of addiction. When you crosses paths with a person who claims you as the object of their addiction, it is wise to exercise caution. This person may be willing to do just about anything to maintain you as their addiction. You have no idea to what degree and depths this will consist of. Don’t play with the person’s emotions and let them down gradually and easy. Don’t offer mixed signals since this can greatly agitate the addicted person to do extreme acts. I wish you much success to exercise great care and caution when you are within the web of a person who claims that they are addicted to you!”by Leslie M. Jasper
Have you ever dealt with a person who has claimed that they are addicted to you? If so, how did you handle it? I would think that hearing that reveal would be rather creepy and put fear in the heart. I wouldn’t think that this is the least bit romantic. Perhaps there is a fine line between a person heavily pursuing the other party versus chasing an addiction. Any time you allow a person outside yourself to determine your own happiness, that can’t be healthy. While this other person can make you happy for a very long time, the sadness during a breakup can be absolutely Earth shattering. Perhaps an enduring friendship is the best approach in life? Yes, it is ridiculous to think that two people can have a relationship without any sexual attraction. Men are visual creatures. Therefore, a sexual attraction is the door opener. It is best for that to not be the sole theme of your relationship. If you disagree, you are welcomed to explain why in the comment section below. Well, I’m off to work on other tasks for now. Try to enjoy your Tuesday and enjoy the rest of the work week. I wish you a great morning/afternoon/evening on your side of the globe and a restful or productive day!

I shared my latest short story that has been loaded up to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library on Amazon recently. The latest short story is entitled: #8 Surviving The 2008 Recession As A Construction Worker. I decided to write about the impact of the 2008 Recession on myself and my family. I managed to get caught up in this vicious cycle of unemployment that happened as a result of the economic recession. Boy, was that an emotionally draining part of my life! I wanted to share the story in an effort to make the reader aware of how deeply the construction industry was impacted by the actions on Wall Street. This short story is now also available as two Verbally Disastrous podcast episodes.
