Reasons Why Couples Should Stay Away From Mexico During Spring Break…

Last Thursday me and The Hubster got a chance to sneak away for a little R & R down in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. He won the trip, and one of the perks of his work is these things are all expenses paid–flight, food, room and booze…lots and lots of booze. The resort we stayed at was all-inclusive and absolutely stunning, but the problem was it’s Spring Break…Cabo was overrun with horny college students and pathetic adults clinging desperately to their youth.

Question of the Week: “How Do I Get Over My Married…

“I was in a 4 years relationship with a MARRIED man…I traded my self esteem for some shoes and good food? I can’t believe it and I will never forgive myself for being so stupid and I will forever regret it for the rest of my life. I cry everyday and I just wish I could turn back time.”

And now you can get much of that advice compressed in Matthew’s upcoming book, GET THE GUY, to be released April 9; book review upcoming.

To Whom It May Concern: Black Skin Is “International”.…

Ms. Abdullah is a single mother from the Bronx who prior to her shot at modeling stardom was working three jobs to care for her family. She is a very lovely young African American woman.

However, her comment was simply unacceptable and if she has a brain in her head, she will apologize for it. And I don’t mean because a cellphone might go flying at her head from some random direction at any minute.

Abby and Olivia walked through the door of the couples’s home together and the female client strode confidently up the Abby and said, “You must be Olivia Pope.” Olivia intercepted the strider and stuck her hand out for the handshake with the words “I’m Olivia Pope”. Despite the fact that the client had just made the assumption that a high-powered fixer had to be the white women Olivia didn’t let that phase her; Olivia didn’t even mention what had happened at any later point in the episode.

The Five Stages of Black Woman Grief, Part 1…

I have observed behaviors in black women, self included, that made me think of the Kübler-Ross model or “Five Stages of Grief”. Many black women have been forced to confront the utter hatred and contempt that black people have for black women. When they see this hatred and the related dysfunction called out, they will respond differently based on whatever “stage” they go to when faced with such an unpleasant situation.

"Black women look 16 until they're 80," says David Flint, who prefers dating black women.

Since We’re Discussing It…The Pot Calling the Kettle…

I normally wouldn’t do this, but I think this post is a perfect piggy back to Brenda55’s post about what this blog ever discusses black men. Interesting that a sorry, loser, bottom-feeding internet troll and stalker of mine has recently started nicknaming me “nappy head.” I find this hilarious, because not only is this man utterly disgusting to look at, he is also black. With nappy hair. And these fools wonder why so many black women are throwing up deuces.

He put a ring on it, Now what? Part 2: The Guys speak…

After the overwhelming response from the previous post , I decided to pick the brains of some men and collected their thoughts and feelings about their marriage relationships. Before I share those quotes I want to share some information from a book I used in my research called “For Women only: what you need to know about the inner lives of men” by Shaunti Feldhahn. She conducted a series of surveys asking men about
their private lives. (Don’t worry ladies, this book was published in the last few years, not 1955) She uncovered some very interesting insights. I will share some here. (She interviewed 100 men to collect this data.)
