    Good evening, babygurl
    I know you’ve had a rough day
    So, sit back…relax
    And let the tension give way
    To romance and love’s sway

    WHAT?

    Hold up…hold up.
    I’ve got some Billie Holliday
    Marvin Gaye
    Or, if you prefer
    A saxophonic jazz display

    Stop…sit back down…
    While I run your bubble bath
    And pour you a glass of chardonnay
    .
    .
    .
    Oh…
    How was your bath?
    Would you like a massage before dinner

    WHAT ARE YOU UP TO?

    Up to?
    Are you trying to imply that I don’t spoil you
    Occasionally
    Red lobster
    Fish by the Sea
    Come on…walk with me along the beach
    Maybe the evening breeze will wash away your cynicism
    Or, whatever “ism” got you doubting me
    I just want you to be HAPPY in your Haven of Love
    Whatever you think of
    That’s what I wanna be

    I AM HAPPY, BABY

    Thank you,
    Coz that’s all I want for you.

    ACTUALLY...

    i was waiting for some of the ladies to explain the lady's response in this piece. WHY ARE THERE DOUBTS when he tries to do the things she really want him to do

    Well, baller, we are a "What's in it for me society", so could be she wants to know what she has to do/give for this lovely treatment. Or what has he done to be giving so much, is he just trying to make up? If her esteem is such that she feels she just does not meassure up she might feel this way or less then deserving. Just three of the obvious possiblities, I am sure the other ladies will have more ideas for you.

    THANKS Gaylee...but, why not just ACCEPT nice treatment, without question...if you have no reason to think it's for any reason other than what it is. by questioning the action, do you not risk the possibility of it not being repeated. i mean, IF I HAD TO UNDERGO THE THIRD DEGREE FOR TRYING TO DO SOMETHING GOOD, WHY WOULD I DO IT?

    just a question.

    Baller-you wouldn't. After a while of all the questioning and second guessing from your lady you would give up. But that is what happens and why the rifts grow between the insecure woman and her man. Woman become this way, (your next question), from previous bad treatment, or the self esteem issue mentioned before. Or even just lack of experience. At my age I ask no questions when good things come. I have learned with time, just to say thank you, and if I am feeling it, "what can I do for you in return".

    so, Gaylee, you're saying that age...wisdom through life's experiences...gets a person to where she/he needs to be in accepting compliments...good graces...and meaningful things that happens to them? THANK YOU.

    what i find most irritating is, when a person is upset, they tend to lash out at a person for doing something good...thinking that their actions will teach the other person a lesson. WHAT IS THE LESSON TO BE LEARNED...that one should act like a spoiled brat whenever their feelings are hurt? hmmm

    rambling.

    sorry.

    Ms A....THANKS for peeking in...i'm honoured.:) relaxTicity...i'm learning.:)
