Not Quite Ready for Commitment

Alright, I’m a loser. Once again, I stayed home with my sick puppy, and failed to update. To all of you that complained, I apologize. I shall try to be better in the future.

Today I’d like to talk about a topic inspired by a story recently told to me by my friend Big C the Pimpin Funkmaster. He is getting married soon, and just had his bachelor party.

Bachelor party. (or bachelorette)

I don’t quite understand the concept. Now for one, I’ve never been to a strip club, probably for many of the same reasons I think bachelor parties are dumb.

One, why would I pay good money to get all worked up, just to go home by myself? That’s just stupid.

But here’s the thing I REALLY don’t get. Why would it be considered acceptable for someone to go out for a wild night of drinking and strippers? Is getting married a good excuse for such behavior? Isn’t that a bad sign?

If you want to have “one last night out partying with the guys” isn’t that a red flag that maybe you’re not ready to settle down and get married?

I don’t have that many guy friends, and the ones I do have are even less wild than I am, so I doubt very much there will be any bachelor parties in my future. And I’m ok with that.

If going out and being wild and crazy is still so important to you, then you have two options: One, don’t get married until your ready to settle down. Two, marry someone that doesn’t mind you going out and being an idiot.

From my perspective, those are your only two options.

I’m not saying “bachelor party = shouldn’t get married.” You can connect the dots yourself on this one.

I’m guessing that getting married will actually be the wildest thing I ever do, so maybe I’m not one to talk on this subject. But it’s my site and I’ll spout off whatever dumb opinions I want.

Thanks for listening.

    AUTHOR: “Lynne” My friends tell me that I had a FABULOUS time at my bachelorette party. FABULOUS. And I believe them. Yes, I lost a toenail, but whatever. Anyway, I wish I would have known when that Navy Seal was licking salt and lime juice of my…er, um…wrist that I was actually “not quite ready for commitment”. Thanks Incredipete! By the way, Incredipete, I just called and cancelled Xena, the leather-clad, red-headed, amazon spanking machine for your bachelor party. I had her on call. (don’t worry, I didn’t really cancel…I know your mom reads this site, wink wink)

    AUTHOR: Incredipete Thank you BPMBA! The married perspective is just what we needed in here.

    AUTHOR: Bigpimpinmbaagain Kaki… Sorry, but the dual idea is horrendous. (I’m saying this because my sister is getting married and this is the exact idea that they have. Uggh.) I need to go out and talk filthy with the guys without looks of disgust from my wife!

    AUTHOR: Bigpimpinmba OK. Here’s the deal (or at least one moron’s opinion) on bachelor parties. It’s not about the groom anymore. I had SOME of the same feeling that Incredipete does about bachelor parties when I had mine. (I mean, I’m not exactly going to OBJECT to a hot girl pretending that a chemical sales guy is really so interesting that they would be talking to me if I did not have a dollar bill licked and stuck on my forehead).

    AUTHOR: kaki321 Purple is my favorite color. I love it Incredipete! As for the bachelor/ette party here is what we did. I went out to dinner with about 8 girls and my hubs went out to dinner and to shoot pool with about 5 guys. We all met (boys and girls) at a dance club at about midnight and got crazy together. It was GREAT! Highly recommend the dual party idea. Geez, I hope Abby is better. Poor baby girl.

    AUTHOR: sassykk Oh and Incredipete, I am sorry my Panthers handed the Chiefs their own ass today. Really. I meant it. Sorry.

    AUTHOR: Wen Yeah! No wigs or knit hats for Mr. Snarky McMeany! The color scheme means that I just will not enjoy the process of reading the entries…

    AUTHOR: your incredibly adorable little sister hey, i like the colours. of course, i didn’t even notice it was different until i got to the comments page and saw all the comments about it. anyhoo, although i am your adorable little sister, i agree with you about bachelor parties. they’re completely idiotic.

    AUTHOR: Wendy Color schmoler. For real, at the end of the day, who gives a rats ass about the colors of the entry page. We all know that the most important thing is the comments page anyway.

    AUTHOR: Incredipete After carefully considering your complaints about my color scheme, I have decided…

    AUTHOR: BJDz I agree with your assessment totally. I turned down a bachelor party before I got married, and when my best friend came by to get me to go anyway, I politely declined. He wasn’t happy, but I felt a lot better than he did the next day. Dumb is dumb, regardless of the excuse.

    AUTHOR: Meg I’ve just read your entry for the third or fourth time, trying to think of something to say. I have to say that I agree whole heartedly with you. If you have to, man or woman, go out and have one last fling before you get married, then what’s the point? You shouldn’t need one last fling. Your soon to be spouse should be that person. Afterall, if you’re marrying him/her, then shouldn’t you have long settled down with that person? I mean, really gotten to know them, and enjoy them to the point that you don’t feel it necessasary to have to go out to party? You shouldn’t feel like it’s the last night of your life. It should be the beginning of a beautiful, adventure filled new life! Well, that was longer than anticipated, but you get the point. 😉

    AUTHOR: warcrygirl Not too keen on the colors hon, but like the others said, it’s your diary. I will read until the colors make my eyes bleed. I agree with you %100. My hubby didn’t have a bachelor party (that I can remember). If he did it was something just as tame as he is. And no sweety, you’ve got it all wrong. The wildest thing you’ll do is on your Wedding Night…

    AUTHOR: sassykk I’m a bit luke warm on the color scheme. Maybe tone down the green…but really…does it matter? No. I am in full agreement with regards to acting like a horney high schooler just because you are getting married. If that is what I wanted to marry, then I would have done so in high school. I had a guy friend tell me that “What happens at the bachelor party stays at the Party.” Whatever…he then asked me out a few weeks later. Guess what?? I said “No”. He still can’t figure out why….porr dumb dumb. I hope Abbey is feeling spiffy today.

  18. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Wendy I agree. Get it ALL out of your system before you commit to getting married. Sometimes people do go overboard at these things and justify it by saying “I’m not married yet.” Well you will be come the weekend tard! I know a woman whose husband didn’t sow his wild oats before they got married. So two kids later, he’s decided he missed out. Major problems.

    AUTHOR: YMM What’s wrong with little Abby? I’m sorry she’s sick again. I have to say, the color scheme is pretty shocking (you know how I feel about purple), but hey, it’s your site. I’ll read it whatever color it is!

    AUTHOR: Wen IncredipeteyIncredipete…I know you don’t care, but this new color scheme is going to make me take Midrin (and thanx to BigPimpin’ we now know it has extra special ingredients). The green has too much black, and the purple is in the same value tone as the green- making it not show up as well as it could (Wendy’s diary has this same problem, and is one of the main reasons why I can’t read it)Please fiddle with the colors some more…Go here for more ideas.

    AUTHOR: Teets I like the purple letters a lot. They look mahvelous, dahling.

    AUTHOR: Incredipete Hi Kamasue! How’re ya doing?

  23. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Kamasue Hi Incredipete, Ha! I am first, and no, I don’t like the color. I hope Abby is feeling better.

    AUTHOR: Incredipete If you like my new colors, give me some love. If you don’t…
