MISSY ASKS YOU! HOW MUCH MONEY HAVE YOU ACCEPTED AS A GIFT FROM SOMEONE?

Yes,  I really want to know!  Some people believe you should never LOAN or BORROW money!  Some people believe you should pay CASH and NEVER USE CHARGE CARDS.
But there are still some people accepting cash as a GIFT!  And I don't mean from their parents!

THE OTHER MAN : A FILM ABOUT A SUGAR MAMA

"THE OTHER MAN" : A FILM ABOUT A SUGAR MAMA

Liam Neeson acts as the husband. Antonio Bandaras acts as the Other Man. Laura Linney acts as the Sugar Mama!

This film's listed as a suspense thriller. I didn't find it to be, but it was interesting anyway.

He's in computers, she's in fashion, they are DINKS (Double Income With Kids).

She travels to Milan where she's in the shoe end of fashion. Milan, the fashion capital of Italy, is where she has her lover.

Then, she dies, but because she wants her husband to know the truth about her in death, if not in life, or maybe because she wants her lover to know the arrangement must end, she kind of hands him the first clue, a password left in her red shoes.  There are also clues in her cell phone, and pictures in her Love file on her personal apple computer.

The husband follows these clues till he meets the man his wife has been having an affair with for many years, the lover he never knew about and gets to know him.

She has also been financing this man, paying his debts, setting him up in a beautiful apartment. He's dashing, fun, and actually works at a humble job. At her memorial celebration, the husband, facing the truth about his wife's secret life, sits with her friends (many in the know) and the Other Man, to celebrate her life, and the acknowledgement of the truth.  How wonderful that unlike most movies about affairs there is no murder!

DECLARATION FOR MISTRESSES - Generosity

"I will be generous to myself."

I don't think I have to remind anyone that generosity involves not just material things but the spirit.  Generosity of spirit has a good bit of forgiveness for others and ourselves for being imperfect.  Generosity of spirit does not deny reality but errors on the side of gentleness and love.

SHE'S A HOT SUGAR MAMA and HE'S HAPPY TO BE KEPT! FEBRUARY 2013 IS SUGAR MAMA AND DADDY MONTH!

I met "Veronica" through friends.  She's in her fifties, has a great sense of her own style and pulls together her signature outfits - just a little showy yet conservative - by shopping vintage and thrift stores, but does she know how to shop!, and is still very pretty, no wrinkles, but then maybe that's because she's pleasingly plump.  Veronia is African American, and only in the last few years has she lived outside the Black community in a more integrated area. 

One day, sitting outside at a cafe lunching with her, a much younger man came by.  He was all smiles and she was blushing deeply, yes like a school girl.  Soon I realized that she was his Sugar Mama.

If you knew Veronica's life story you would be amazed that anyone could make her heart pound so, that she could blush, and have such a crush on any man.  She's overcome a lot of heartbreak and abuse.  Her mother was nowhere for her and her father a torment.

What makes Veronica's lifestyle so different is that she has not only supported herself since she was 16 years old but supported men less than willingly for years. 

Finally, she became independent and then she started supporting younger men by choice

The man who makes her her heart pound and her cheeks blush is 30 years younger than her and he knows he has a good thing going.  Veronica is aware that he is also dating and having sex with women his own age, though she hates to know it, but she still gives him a twenty here, a hundred there; more than once she gave him a couple thousand.  He knows that she is always watching his back and that he will always have a place to stay with her, if he chooses. 

Maybe she knows that the day will come when he leaves those flirtations behind and comes home to roost?

MORE AND MORE OFTEN I OVERHEAR MEN, especially younger men in their twenties, saying that they want to be stay-at-home fathers, or will let their wife work and support them.  They seem to feel very comfortable with the idea, and do not consider themselves to be "gigolos" or take on any other derogatory label.  Is this about the fact that men seem to have much better self esteem overall than women?

These men feel that the relationship is their private business.  They feel entitled to live better than they can afford to on their own income.  Some are artists or musicians and feel that artists have had wealthy patrons for centuries so why not them!

More than once a younger man has looked to me to be generous or support him.  Personally, I have to pass!

This month I celebrate the Sugar Mamas and Sugar Daddys out there!  YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!
