Hey everybody,

This one is mainly for the guys but ladies feel free to express yourself as well.

Guys if you had a friend that introduced you to a young lady does that young lady becomes your girlfriend automatically based on the introduction? Once again just observing most of our Liberian men and thats how they believe things work. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing
Either I am getting old or missing something

No, how can that make her his girlfriend automatically?
Introduction is just * Mary meet Paul, Paul meet Mary*
Before anyone can agree to be anyone's girlfriend,
they would need time to get to know that person.
What if when 2 people are introduced to each other,
and they just don't even want to chat to each other? Then
how can 2 people automatically become boyfriend and
girlfriend?

Thats what I want to know Sisi. I've seen it happen "ex. paul meet mary" and the next day paul is telling his friends that mary is his woman. Then paul is on auto love. Is it me or is something seriuosly wrong here?

No, it's not you.
The world has gone upside down. Even when you chat with
someone online, then you speak to them on the phone the
guys automatically presume you are their woman.
I think a lot of people have forgotten it takes time and emotional
investment, to make a relationship. Many say "I love you" without
knowing what love truly is.

If u made an introduction meet so&so it should be that,and go on about ur business.Sometimes the 2 try to hit it on if the connection is right,but for pity stuff things go bad then one person try to say it was only friendship.Remember we are human beings 2 side to all the story.

Troubleman u are right. But some of the guys in LIB have a bad habit with that intro stuff especially if they know the girl is from the U.S. Then the introduction turns into a relationship that everybody knows about except the girl. Its funny how people can fall in love in days based on ones status instead of emotions

U are so right both women&men need to stop this thing.U know when a pretty girl enter Lib all hell break loose.For me as a man i will like to understand the word (FRIENDSHIP)first i will not chase after a lady,because she is from the USA.We have pretty girls now living in Lib.
My thing is all about understanding.
Sometimes men be hustling just as women everyone are looking for love now even on the internet i see it every day.Introduction is just to know each other.

Hey people do not forget love at first site, I know many people do not beleive in it but it really does exist it might not be both parties feeling it at the same time but it really does exist.
I met my husband through introduction at 15, my girlfriend introduced her boyfriend's friend to me and immediately we shoke hands i felt cold bumps on my body and butterflies in my stomack my heart started beating really fast we just could not stop staring at each other. He later pulled me aside we talked for hours when he was leaving he gave me a perk and told me he loves me this was all strange to me because i was innocent at the time but i knew it was love because for weeks i continued to have those butterflies in my stomack each time i thought of him.

Saying I love you right there and then at an introduction is kinda wierd though guys even if you feeling the lady keep inside at least at the moment and express it later after atleast getthing to know something other that just her name. Laughing

in my book, there is no written rule 2 how one falls in love.we are in the 21st century, let guys/gals innovate how they fall in love. love is a beautiful thing, let´s disabuse ourselves of obsolete values that inhibit our love.guys/gals falling 4 a friend of a friend is only natural if he/she is off the market. i have done that several times and had wonderful relationship with my mamacita.

Krugirl and Sisi, I'm trying to understand how a simple introduction will warrant a guy to call a woman his girlfriend? Unfortunately, most of our Lib peeps do not know or understand the differentiation between 'friend', 'acquaintance', 'girlfriend/boyfriend' hence the misinterpretation. But for a guy to think you're his woman after few chat sessions and phone calls then it means that the onus lies with the woman for not making it distinctly clear (some guys are hard to grasp hints) that either the dude will just be a friend or he hasn't fully made the transition to becoming a 'boyfriend'.

I won't even comment on this US status thing.

bpudding lets put it this way. This is a perfect example of one of the situations. Think LIB with this one. Lets say you and I have been friends for years and I live in LIB and you live in the US. You visit LIB quite offtend. And the more you visit the more you hang out me and my other friends in LIB. Now when you return to the US you call me once in a while to chat n see how i'm doing. In the mist of the calls i say to you my friends Mary, Beth, and Heather are hear you want to speak to them (these are the friends we all hung out together with). So every other time you call me the you ask for my friends and their well being n talk to them on the phone as well.

Out of my three friends, Beth starts refering to you as her boyfriend yet you guys haven't establish anything n you are just as shock to hear her say that. Thats why I was asking, something like a simple phone call can generate a relationship with out the other person knowing about it. Or is Beth just being desperate?

Well, well. In that case I have to bring it to your attention- tell your friend to wake up and smell the coffee. Either that or I'll be forced to give her a reality check.

Or could there be a lil flirting that poor Beth thinks she has 'grabbed'? They say show a hungry dog a juicy bone and don't be surprised when it attacks you.
