Thats the side of relationships I don't miss. The time sacrifice. My plan is to find girls that i like, and can still be close too, but not call it a relationship. I still get to do what I want when I want, but then still get the benefits of a relationship (mainly lots of *** and someone close to confide in).

I don't really care about monogomy unless its a girl that I really want to be with for a long time. If they want to hook up with other guys thats fine, as long as I can do the same (with girls though ) and its not done in front of me and I don't have to hear about it. Ignorance is bliss.

I know exactly where your coming from mate. Sometimes its easier to concede defeat and do what they want then endure the 3 day arguement about it. Thats why I want to make sure I don't fall in love with them until I know that they are something special. As long as you don't have feelings for them you can make them look to keep you happy. Thats the plan anyway. In reality I will probably end up doing the same thing all over again. If a girl is hot enough I just totally ignore my own advice.

Sounds like my ex, except I just did what I wanted anyway for the most part. If you give them an inch they take a mile.

I have said for a very long time that his boxing ability is very under rated, as is his hand speed. All these "experts" in the general think that he has all of a sudden developed it out of no where. He has always been very well rounded, and if you watch the fights earlier in his career, there are times when he would just totally outbox guys. Cotto will usually adapt to his opponent. Against Shane he obviously didn't think pressure was the answer, and still made it work for him. I think he would fight Floyd a little differently personally.

I think his boxing looked a little better than it really is because Mosley had zero defence and was gassed early because of his nerves, Cotto was a scary guy for those first six rounds or so. Once shane had calmed down he was already breathing hard but he came forward still and had Cotto retreating, you're obviously a big Cotto fan, how do you feel about Cotto retreating? I didn't think that was part of his game, i'd be a fan of his if he kept coming like he did in the first half.

I think it's interesting that Cotto comes across as such a nice guy in interviews before and after a fight, in the ring the guy is straight out mean and nasty, refusing to touch gloves with Mosley whenever he put his hand out, and the deliberate low blows against Judah when he was in trouble, the guy is a monster but the retreating he did destroyed the image i had of him in my head, it just seemed uncharacteristic, i thought Mosley was about to buckle under the pressure and it's like Cotto just eased off and i ended up scoring the fight a draw, i think Mosley will win the rematch now if he doesn't go looking for the knockout from the start. I don't know what changed the fight at the half way mark, Mosley boxing on his toes, Cotto easing off for some unexplained reason, or a combination of the two, hopefully there will be a rematch, the fight was too inconclusive.
