Although I’m a single woman who isn’t focused on getting dates at the moment–but that could change at any second, because really, who knows when The One ™ will come calling–I still love to read the dating stories of other women, especially black women.
Swirling is so delicious!
SyFy’s Defiance, AMC’s Mad Men, HBO’s Game of Thrones, and ABC’s Scandal. These are the shows I watch religiously (or almost religiously) every week, which goes to show that there is good programming out there, you just might have to cobble that programming together from several channels.

Red is always fy-a!
