Aries pt 3 (really, this is the last one)

Click for Part 1 or Part 2

I was going to hold off on this, but I already wrote it so I might as well post it. This is the story of my third (and possibly last) Aries woman. This is the one that made me swear off the entire zodiac sign, at least for awhile.

After I graduated from college, I had no idea what I was going to do with my life. I ended working in a call center environment for the first time. I was surrounded by women, and being one of the few straight brothas working there, I naturally got a lot of attention. I was also out of a relationship for the first time in three years. Naturally, I relished the opportunity to become a social butterfly. My nights consisted of drinking and getting blunted and hanging with the fairer sex. I was not looking for any commitment and for about a year I managed to remain free from romantic entanglements. One day, that all changed for me and to this day I’m not really sure how that happened.

I’m going to keep it extra real with you, blogger family. This story does not present me in the most positive light. All I can say in my defense is that I was young and I didn’t fully understand the ramifications of my actions. Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, lets move on to the meat of the story. One day at work, I attended a continuing education training class; you know the type that companies give so they can give you more work, but not increase your salary? In this class, I befriended a co worker named Veronica. She was 6 months pregnant and talked to me about how her baby daddy was not in the picture. She needed a ride home, and being the gentleman that I am I obliged. That fateful ride home proved to be the catalyst to a series of events that I never would have imagined.

To thank me for the ride home, Veronica offered to cook dinner for me. I wasn’t looking for anything in return, but since I had no culinary skills at all, I accepted. After dinner, I tried to go home, but she kept coming up with reasons that I should stay. I didn’t want to be rude, so I stayed. Besides I wasn’t looking forward to going home and seeing my room mate who at that time had moved her girlfriend in our already too small apartment. So I chilled and we talked and I played with her 2 year old hellion of a daughter. Next thing I knew it was midnight and I finally decided to leave. As I was leaving, Veronica grabbed me and kissed me and asked me to come back the next evening.

I was in shock at the situation. I called my homeboy Kareem and told him what went down. Instead of some meaningful advice, he hit me with this jewel: “Man, pregnant p*ssy is the bomb! Plus you ain’t gotta worry about knocking her up.” I hung up with Kareem, disgusted at his ultra male response, but in the back of my mind it resonated. I saw Veronica over the next few days, and she was in full on “get a nigga” mode. A few days later, I gave her another ride home and it was on from that point.

I started to spend more time with Veronica even though she was the opposite of what I was looking for. She didn’t have any of the positive Aries traits. She wasn’t especially quick, in fact she had to be one of the least intelligent women I knew. She wasn’t independent or determined, she relied heavily on her mother at first, and then on me. Why did I go out with her you ask? I think it was because Veronica was assertive and forceful, and I was passive at the time. I didn’t really go after what I wanted and I settled on the first woman who was majorly into me. I can say now after some serious self analysis that she hooked me with the attention she paid to me. But I would be remiss as storyteller if I didn’t tell you more about this crazy situation.

Veronica had ALL of the negative traits of Aries I listed in the first part of this post. She was domineering and selfish. Let me give you 2 examples. One night I was trying to extricate myself from her apartment, as I often did. I just wanted to be home after a long night of her talking me to death. What does she do to get me to stay? This (word that I can’t use that rhymes with witch) brewed me some iced tea with weed in it. Now, I don’t know who sold her pregnant ass a dimebag, but I do know that after drinking that shit, I was high as hell and unable to drive home. Another time, I tried to break up with her, (apparently I was in a relationship, but didn’t know it) and she threatened to kill herself if I left. 2006 T. would call her bluff, but back then I allowed myself to be manipulated. Veronica was also very quick tempered to the point of violence. I hated the way she treated her daughter, who was indeed a bad seed, but was only that way because of the hostile environment she was in. She would yell at her 2 year old like she was an adult and spank her to the verge of it being child abuse. That was another reason I stayed so long. I tried to be a positive influence on her child rearing, but Veronica’s impatience won out.

Eventually, I got the resolve to end things once and for all. Veronica didn’t have the traits I was looking for in a mate. I knew that from the start but refused to listen to the voice of reason in my head. I got suckered in by all the attention. I wish I could say that was the end of the saga, but alas it’s not. After the break up, Veronica transformed into Queen Stalker. It started out subtly; she would just stare at me at work. Her eyes would penetrate me as I took my calls. It was a little uncomfortable, but I could deal with that. Then, I found out that she was telling people that her newborn son, who by this point was 3 months old, was my child. I was like WTF!!! I didn’t even know her when she got pregnant, ain’t no way he is mine. But it was just enough information to salt my game for awhile. Veronica then started calling me 10 times a day, and when I ignored her number on the caller id, she would block her number or go to a pay phone to call. On those rare occasions that she did catch me, the conversation would consist of a series of attempted manipulations such as “I am going to kill myself” or “the kids really miss you.” Next, I noticed her driving by my apartment late at night or sitting in her car across the street trying to see who was coming into my crib. Veronica’s stalker tendencies were really starting to bug me, but I did my best to ignore her. Until something happened that I couldn’t ignore.

I came home late one night from a night of clubbing with my homegirl Senita and a few other co workers. It was about 3 in the morning and I was still intoxicated from the Bacardi Limon we had been drinking all night. I staggered up the driveway and made my way to the door of the cheap ass duplex I was renting. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Veronica digging up the grass under a tree (with her bare hands.) I quickly ran her off with a barrage of drunken curse words. It wasn’t until the next morning that I found out what she was doing. Apparently, Veronica went to visit a psychic healer, who told her how to put “roots” on me. She had to bury some chicken bones, a lock of my hair and an article of my clothing in my yard and then I would come back to her. Now I don’t believe in “roots” but the fact that Veronica would go that route displayed to me how unbalanced she really was. I had to tell her I was going to get a restraining order. She didn’t really stop stalking me until I moved to Atlanta about a year later.

After this experience, I tended to avoid Aries at all costs. Three in a row was enough for me. If I met an attractive young lady that just so happened to be an Aries, I ran like the wind. At this point in my life, I no longer avoid Aries, but I am careful to look for the warning signs. So there’s my long saga of dealing with Aries women. Do you have any zodiac signs that you are compatible with or try to avoid? Hit me up in the comments if you feel compelled to share.

I find that as a Cancer, I have to stay away from Libras. They are the smooth talkers of the zodiac and although we love all that sweet-talk, attention and those romantic gestures a Libra flings at us, Libras have no follow-through. They have the ability to wander off in the middle of even the most important events/ relationships.
After he has promised me the world and Im planning our future hes planning his escape!
:-[

I got caught out there a couple times, after that I just avoided everybody born in October...unless they were an early Scorpio...those dudes are straight FREAKS!
;-P

the only sign i've made an effort to avoid is gemini, even though they're supposedly compatible with leos. i was stalked by a gemini. one day i'll tell that story on my blog. all i'm gonna say here is that brotha tried to jack a sista up. that was one crazy mothafucka.

i know i'm not fair when i keep gemini's at an emotional distance but that situation left me with a bad impression of the entire lot.

i also stay totally and completely away from pisces men. every time i date one, i end up with a compulsive liar. i'm not even willing to try with those cats anymore.

I haven't even read the posts, yet, but the title really grabbed me.

It seems that just about every serious relationship I've had has been with an Aries woman. In fact, I'm having a hard time thinking of any exceptions.

Weird.

Y'know what's even more weird? That's my Mom's sign, too.

*heads to therapy*

I want another scorpio so we can lie to each other, get on each other's nerves and curse each other out all the time all in the midst of some hot juicy sex.

lmao@the stiltwalker. scorpios i've dated are like the freakiest cats EVER. it's like the straight burn with sensuality. and yet there is something about them that just doesn't click with me. i can't even put my finger on it.

Slap the Sh!t out of Your Co-Worker Day is coming!!


Friday is the official Slap Your Irritating Co-workers Holiday: Do you have a co-worker who talks

nonstop about nothing, working your last nerve with tedious and boring details that you don't care about? Do you have a co-worker who ALWAYS screws up stuff creating MORE work for you? Do you have a co-worker who is SOOO obnoxious, when he/she enters a room, everyone else clears it? Well,

on behalf of Ike Turner, I am so very very glad to officially announce SLAP THE SH*T OUT OF YOUR IRRITATING CO-WORKER DAY!
The rules you must follow:
* You can only slap one person per hour - no more.
* You can slap the same person again if they irritate you again in the same day.
* You are allowed to hold someone down as other co-workers take their turns slapping the irritant.
* No weapons are allowed...other than going upside somebody's head with a stapler or a hole-puncher.

Have a good day!

Well as a Taurus, I don't get along with Cancers (namely my father), Leos, and some but not all Aries. Leos especially set me off..Just crazy. And sometimes another Taurus, we can butt heads a lot. Have you ever seen two Tauruses get into it?

Umm yeah you kinda need to stay away from the Aries. Mess around and they're going to be like my stalkers *another post*

I don't put much stock in the Zodiac thing, myself, but that coincidence has already struck me as an oddity.

It's not like I know these women's birthdays before I get with them or anything.

@ chez niki - I don't wanna hear about freaky guys on my blog... LOL

@ nikki - Can't wait to hear about your stalker story.

@ muffin - I almost didn't put that line in there, but it was just to crazy to leave out.

@ tigerkiss - I'm sure you are representing for the quality Aries out there. There must be something about y'all that I can't avoid.

@ ms new booty - I learned 2 out of the 3 lessons. I think the kids were with her mother.

@ joey - yeah, old girl got me. But I wonder if this was an Aries thing or a crazy thing.

@ west. yeah, bruh! I didn't really put too much stock in zodiac either, but damn them Aries women. Good luck in therapy.

@ unsaid - tell the truth, there's some kind of Aries conspiracy to f*ck with brotha's heads. They give y'all a manual when you turn 15 or 16.

@ stiltwalker - did I already say this?: I don't wanna hear about no freaky guys on my blog... LOL

@ nikki pt 2 - read what I wrote to chezniki and stiltwalker... The only male freakiness on this blog belongs to me. LOL

@ cupcake - Its funny now, but it sure wasn't back in the day. She had me checking the kitchen to see if my pet rabbit was getting boiled. (Fatal Attraction)

@ anonymous - ummm... OK. Don't really know how to respond to that.

@ tenacious - I am a recovering Ariesholic. I've been Aries free since 1999. One day at a time, man, One day at a time.

@ Sanging Diva - what's there to hate about a zodiac sign that has 2 different personalities. LOL

@ west (part2) - You gotta ask the birthday, I prefer to see 2 pieces of government issued id.

*sitting next to west on the therapist couch but not too close cuz he has a things for aries women lol*

Damn, baby girl got issues. Or maybe T. just put some good lovin' on her that made her lose her mind lol ;)
I always end up with Leos, I think I'm attracted by their confidence, but there's a fine line between confidence and ego. I don't always choose wisely.

My suggestion? Try Aquarius...we're mighty creative

Mr. T,
I'm a Virgo, your part 1,2, & 3; had every bit of my attention. It was very interesting to read. Especially, because i been dating my boyfriend of 3 years now, and he has a baby mother that is a Aries, and I think she is crazy, she goes toe to toe with me, and ignoring her only makes things worst, their daughter now lives with me and my boyfriend, and I really have to deal with her now, its just crazy, I love my Pisces very much, but this girl us getting too much for me to handle, he wants to marry me, but I don't know if I want to make such a commitment to the point, because I really don't want to deal with his baby mother anymore, lately I been fearing that this girl may try and hurt me, because of her unstableness smh..do you have any advice.
