Who watched? What are you thoughts? I’m a registered Independent, so I try to keep an open mind. But there were a few things that gave me pause–what’s up with all the “God” rhetoric? Now don’t get me wrong, I’m spiritual and believe in God. But the constant peppering of the deity felt more likeRead More…
Hold tight, ladies…this one looks pretty juicy…
In order to continued to shrink my waist and at least feign an hourglass figure, I had to come to terms that I had to give up something I really enjoyed and gave me comfort: DRINKING.
Who ARE these people?!
I am active on four online dating sites: POF.com, Match.com, AfroRomance.com, and SeniorsMeet.com. In this post, we are going to critique the main text part(s) of my online dating profiles with the aim of improving them and/or helping others create their own.
More questions than answers?
What does the word ‘reciprocity’ mean to those of you who call yourselves BWE?
This is not a trick question, but a chance for open dialogue and explication because, sometimes, I am not quite sure what some of you mean when you use the term reciprocity.
Oh LAWD! Tyler Perry is involved!
I went on a great first date last week. It was great except that I wore an outfit that showed too much cleavage. It didn’t seem like too much when I left the house, but by the time I got to our meeting place, my top had migrated downwards and my bosom was bulging to the delight of my date.
I got this letter a while back and I didn’t answer right away because it’s such an important question, and I just don’t take this stuff lightly.

White denim you say? Are you insane? No I am not. This ‘new’ staple for every girl’s closet, big or small is a must have this season. This isn’t your high-water white denim from the 80s, this is that fresh denim of 2013.
Grandparents often simply don’t have the energy to properly manage their teenage grandchildren. And, most importantly, times have changed and people are behaving much differently than how people were behaving when your average 60-, 70-, or 80-year-old was coming up. There have always been fast girls and boys who wanted to be players, but, in general, girls were much more fearful of getting a bad reputation, boys didn’t have as much unsupervised access to young women, and crimes against humanity such as disemboweling women were practically unheard of. We don’t live in the same age as our grandparents did, and the grandparents of today are oftentimes entirely unprepared to help their grandchildren navigate the rough waters that many a teenager today has to navigate in poor, high-crime neighborhoods.

Being aware of the tricks and attempts at manipulation sent your way is certainly a must, but this doesn’t require you get angry or fearful. Simply side-step these persons and keep walking. How emotionally invested you become in the efforts of black trolls is often an indicator of how far removed you actually are from these constructs. If they have the ability to tap into a high level of your emotion, you are NOT free. It’s as simple as that.
