I Like Him but I Hate the Old Underwear He Wears

Tavion,

Dude I was talking to has been pissed at me for about three days now. Here’s the thing, he’s a great guy that I’m falling for hard. He just has one flaw that I can see right now that drives me up the freakin wall. I hate the underwear he has because they are just so old. Let me be clear, they aren’t dirty underwear with skid marks and things. They are just old. They are fading and some of the elastic is damn near gone. I promise you I’ve seen a hole in a pair or two, which I guess is quick access for me. But the underwear being old is a bit of a turnoff. Then I see his body, and I’m like forget the draws.

Trying to rectify the problem and be honest, I asked him when is the last time he invested in underwear? I even suggested he let me buy him some, which is crazy because he has a good job and could buy his own. He got all offended and thought I was trying to embarrass him. I can’t believe something so stupid as fresh draws caused an issue.

I sent him text messages trying to explain where I was coming from and told him I wasn’t being shady, but I barely got a thumbs up emoji in reply. This is dumb because I don’t think we should be arguing over this, and I won’t apologize because I’m not sorry. What you think?

Cuffing Season and the “Trap of the Ex”

Given that Cuffing Season has again swung into full effect, I feel obligated to issue a public warning.  I feel compelled to cautioned readers against falling into the “Trap of the Ex.”  Usually during Cuffing Season, exes have a way of popping up out of the blue like clockwork.  It’s as if a sensor goes off alerting them that it’s that special time of year and their former bae is single.  Heck, if I’m honest, the ex may not know or care if the former bae is single, and still feel compelled to reach out in some way.  If none of this sounds familiar to you yet, allow me to make it a little more personal for you.

5 Things to Know Before You Jump into Cuffing Season

I know there are more important things on the horizon like the upcoming presidential election in a few weeks, but I’d like to point out that cuffing season is also quickly approaching. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, allow me to explain.  For all intent and purposes, the infamous cuffing season is like hibernation season for bears (real ones LOL).  When the cold weather hits, bears like to find them a cozy and intimate place, away from other aspects of nature.  Similarly during cuffing season, humans don’t like going to clubs and bars like they used to in the spring and summer, because of the winter air and its elements.  While humans like to be in a cozy and intimate place, they tend to want to be there with a warm body next to them, as in a boo.  A bae. A honey.  A boyfriend.  And I’m all here for people participating in cuffing season, but I just think there are rules to this.
