Liar Liar!

Hey Lovelies! This is a reader submission. . .

She goes by “Miss Naïve” Show her some love and leave a comment 🙂

This is the tale of a young and dumb girl who thought she could buy her way to a man’s heart with nice gifts and gestures, and how he played her for a fool with a pool of lies. Little did she know, she would soon regret being so nice. We’ll call the young man LL for liar-liar and the young lady miss naive. So LL and Miss Naïve had been kickin it for a few months. After a few months of off and ons between the two, some consistency started to come into play. Ms. Naïve’s birthday was just a few months before LL’s. The day after Miss Naïve’s birthday party (which LL wasn’t invited to because other members of Miss Naïve’s “team” were there lol), LL showed up at Miss Naïve’s door with a pair of designer shoes that Miss Naïve asked for as a gift. She was ecstatic!

Time goes on, Thanksgiving rolls around and Miss Naïve goes shopping with the fam the day after Thanksgiving. “These Polo sweaters are so cute! LL would look good in one of these.” Miss Naïve thought to herself. So she gets one for him. When she returns home, she gives the sweater to LL who kindly accepts.  So Miss Naïve had the hook up in one of LLs favorite stores. He mentioned a blazer that he liked, so being the nice girl she was, she contacted the hook up and got the blazer. “This can be a pre-birthday gift” she thought to herself. A few weeks roll around and its LL’s birthday. Miss Naïve takes him to dinner, and is super excited because she knows that LL is going to love the “real” gift she got him. During dinner, LL asks “What are you doing for new years?” Miss Naïve says she doesn’t have any definite plans. LL lets her know that they might be able to get up then, and spend new years together. When the two return home, Miss Naïve pulls out a big bag and hands it to LL. He opens it and is smiling from ear to ear when he sees his favorite bottle of vodka and more clothing from his favorite store. After chilling for about 20 mins, LL leaves saying he was going to go to a bar with some of his friends. “WTF?” Miss Naïve thinks to herself. Well maybe he was going to be with the guys right?

New Year’s Eve rolls around, still no definite plans made with LL. Hell, he hasn’t even mentioned doing anything since dinner. So Miss Naïve goes ahead and spends New Year’s Eve with her friends. She never asks LL what happened to them kicking it together, she just lets it ride.

It’s a week before Valentine’s Day. Once again LL claims he is going to “plan something.” Going off his previous actions Miss Naïve doesn’t get her hopes up, and has a plan B. As expected, LL doesn’t show, doesn’t call, doesn’t text. Miss Naïve couldn’t be too upset because she figured it would happen. This was her “final” test. That was it! No more LL in her life.

In the mean time, here are a few more examples of Miss Naïve’s quest for this man’s heart.

1)    One night, Miss Naïve decided to cook dinner for LL. She asked him what his favorite dish was, and he told her. She looked up the recipe for the meal (which she really didn’t eat) to make him happy. The meal turned out great! Too bad she had to eat it alone because LL was a no show. After making plans and being given a time to meet at her place for dinner, he doesn’t call/text or anything. His excuse the next day was “he washed his phone” in the washing machine by accident.

2)    While leaving the club, Miss Naïve wanted some company. so she hit LL up to ask him to come over. She calls once, no answer, twice, no answer, three times, not a lady, but no answer. So being the typical female, Miss Naïve calls LL from her friends phone. He picks up immediately (guys fall for it every time). Once LL realizes its Miss Naïve, he starts trying to act like he was sleep and hangs up the phone.

3)    On another occasion, Miss Naïve texts LL and asks him if their plans for going to the movies were still on. He doesn’t text back. In an effort to ease her woman’s intuition, Miss Naïve texts “Are you sleep?” from her friends phone. He replies “nah I’m up, who is this?” She doesn’t reply back. The next day, Miss Naïve asks LL why he didn’t respond to her text. LL said he was sleep. “Mmmm hmmm.” Miss Naïve says. Getting upset, LL says “If I wanted to lie to you, I’m pretty sure I could come up with a better excuse than saying I was sleep.” Man, this guy was good at lying! Or at least he thought he was lol.

Time passes by and Miss Naïve and LL happen to be at the same bar. Of course after all the BS she had to deal with, Miss Naïve wasn’t going to welcome him with open arms. So she slides right past him and doesn’t say a mumbling word. Do you blame her? Why would she say anything to such a shady character? After a night of chilling at the bar, Miss Naïve returns to work the next morning. And who do you think emailed her as soon as she sat down at her desk? You guessed it………LL. He made the point to bring up how Miss Naïve walked right on by and didn’t speak. She didn’t respond because she was laughing too hard.

Another month goes by, and there has been no contact between the two. One night, Miss Naïve decided to go out on the town with a friend of hers and have a good time. While at the bar, Miss Naïve feels a tap on her shoulder. Its LL. He tells her how good she looks, and makes small talk, and eventually buys her a drink. Now by this time, Miss Naïve had another guy friend that had come in the mix. He was also at the party, and Miss Naïve spent most of her time chilling with him. By the time Miss Naïve gets home, she gets a text from LL saying how nice she looked (again). The next night she gets another text from LL saying how he wishes they could hang out again like they used to. Did she really have that much of an effect on him? Lol

After several long “I want to make things right” conversations and text messages, Miss Naïve and LL decide to give their friendship/relationship or whatever you want to call it another try. LL seemed to be on the right track. He showed up when he said he would, they went to dinner, they had drinks after work, they did other fun things together. Could he have possibly made a change for the better? No. After about a month or two, LL becomes MIA once again. No calls, no texts, no emails. Nothing.

What has she learned from all this you ask? I would go into the Khia song “Don’t trust no ni@@@” but that’s for a different day lol. She learned that you can’t be too nice to a guy unless you know he is truly feeling you, or unless the two of you are in a STEADY relationship. And even then you don’t need to buy him s*** unless its his birthday, or Christmas. Hell, you might not need to buy him anything period. They say nice girls finish last, and she believes that to a certain extent. Notice, when she was off LL she couldn’t keep him from blowing up her phone, but once she gave in, he was out like a light. Perhaps being a bitch will get you farther in the long run than being a wifey type? That topic is still debatable. Guys seem to want what they feel like may be slipping through their fingers, then once they know they have it, they don’t appreciate it as much. So the next time you find yourself questioning if you’re being “too nice” then you probably are lol. Take it from me, give them tough love!

  1. This story right here is the kind that I can totally relate to. I’ve been in Miss Naive’s shoes several times and might have been LL once or twice, except I wasn’t into lying. I simply didn’t care to make myself availible at times. Anyway, the cat and mouse game is simply a cry for attention or ego boost. Some people just like to know that they can have you when they want you. They like to feel like they’re in demand even if it’s at the risk of another person’s time, money and feelings.

    That’s why I have a very low tolerance for flakey people. If a person is really interested in me, she’s gonna make time for me. If I keep getting excuses for why she couldn’t make time, I’ll just assume that she’s not that into me. People can tell you whatever they want you to believe, but most communication is nonverbal.

  2. Yea, you can never start off buying guys ANYTHING b/c once you start, you can’t stop. They will see you as a ticket to w/e they desire. The guy i’m with, I may have bought him like a pair of pants or something && we’ve been together for almost 5 years. Now, he buys me things if I ask b/c that’s the type of relationship we have. We have totally different styles so he can’t pick anything out for me && vice versa. However, he told me how he used to do girls the same way. He would get what he wanted && then be out. LL only wanted her back so bad so he could see if he could get her && he did. He saw that man as competition && he wanted to make sure he still had it. I don’t think true feelings were ever there..hence the fact that he was blatantly ignoring Miss Naive calls but ready to hook up w/ someone else, probably hoping the chick that texted him was a new female. He probably had a girlfriend the whole time. I definitely wouldn’t be surprised.

  3. Well, first off she fell for non-sense time and time again. I know love is blind and it will take over your mind, body, and cause terrible judgment. Been there myself but you belive that people can change. Thing is they do for a short period of time then they go back to the bullish that they want to do. She just made a bad decision twice. One to continue to deal with it then to go back to it. Nah, once you fail what is the point in trying again (no backsliddin ya dig?!) its all about foward progression.
