The weather this weekend in Atlanta was a great start to the first official day of spring. Everyone was out and about enjoying as much of the sun as they could, not knowing how long this weather would last. Atlantic Station was in full swing and one restaurant in particular was quite packed. Atlantic Grill in Atlantic Station, which has one of thee best turkey burgers, was stacked.
I’m not sure if it was the lunch rush or if the staff was just not having a good day but the service left a lot to be desired. I’ve been to the restaurant a few times and have never had a problem; however, I was shocked this weekend.
Also, while listening to the radio show, Frank Ski and Wanda, one intern spoke of how she wouldn’t automatically leave someone for an infidelity, which I agree with; however, she spoke as if repeated adultery was ok as long as the man knew who his number one lady is. This point came up again in a recent book I read, titled, “Unconditionally Single,” by Zane. One of the characters was content to have a man that she knew was not being faithful instead of being alone. This leads me into my rule of never settling.
Ladies, settling for being one of a slew of women is never ok. You have to know that you deserve better than that. Unless you are in an open relationship with your partner, then you shouldn’t stay with someone who can not commit to monogamy. Don’t let friends or family members convince you to stay with someone who can not be faithful because it’s better than having no one at all. Wrong!
Women need to realize that as long as you let someone walk all over you, they will consider doing so. Set your expectations high, but within reason. No one’s relationship is perfect. But at the end of the day, you deserve more than a man who can’t respect you enough to commit to one person. Never allow yourself to be conned or wooed into a situation that makes you uncomfortable. Misery loves company and you can do badly all by yourself.
