black woman and black man on bad date
When I am forced to make tough decisions in life, a pros and cons list always proves beneficial. If the pros dramatically outweigh the cons, the decision is a no-brainer. So, when I decided to venture out into the wonderful (and scary) world of dating again, I made my “red flag list,”  my deal-breaker list, if you will. And when one of my red flags starting whipping in the breeze, I immediately flagged the play, […]

Real Black Love
If it is the case that we fall in love with our hearts and not with our heads, why are so many of us dating with our heads? Isn’t falling in love the end result we all want?

catching feelings
I was always told by my grandfather to find a man that loved me more so I would always have a true love surrounding me. As I listen to my single friends, and their horror stories of the current dating scene, I am starting to wonder if it is even possible to find true love anymore. Growing up, I believed my grandfather wholeheartedly but experience has since taught me that he was wrong. If you […]

Black man and woman in bed making love
I know the title of this article sounds harsh, but allow me to go there for a moment. It pains me to see how many daggers are thrown to previous women. So often on my timeline I see quotes like, “He chose me not you.”. “You didn’t measure up.” or “It’s a reason why I’m the wife/girlfriend and your not.” Not only do these phrases scream insecurity, but they reek of jealousy. Who in their […]

BLACK LOVE
When reading about love, sex, dating and relationships online or in the mainstream media, it is seldom we find positive, helpful articles about black love. Over the last five years, black relationships have become visible in the mainstream à la ‘Love & Hip Hop,’ other celebrity-focused productions, and sitcoms — which is a great thing but — we’re more than that. We deserve more diversity, responsibility and guidance, and balance and wellness. Weeks ago when […]

Black Woman Cheating
I could develop a list of reasons that deter women from being faithful in relationships but it all boils down to one simple fact.  Yeah that’s right, just one!  Women only cheat when they’re unhappy.  Yep.  That’s the only reason. Ladies if you think I’m lying, just take a moment to consider the last time you cheated on your significant other. No matter what explanation you start to deliver in your response, you’ll most certainly in […]

The beauty of marriage: the legally or formally recognized union of a man and a woman as partners in a relationship, the date women circle on their calendars with a huge red heart, the day some men dread as young boys, then there’s the one element that many of us forget to take into consideration—the in-laws (specifically the mother of the bride). I was watching a movie this past weekend that demonstrated how and why […]

Most of us don’t learn the lesson of self-love until we have either 1) been severely heart-broken or 2) been single for a very long time.  But regardless to how you encounter the lesson, it’s important to know how your next relationship can benefit from your new found wisdom. Now so I can be certain that we are all on the same page, by my definition, self-love is the ability to understand and accept yourself, […]

Black man proposing
No one ever anticipates being in a relationship for years waiting on a proposal, but sometimes it just happens. Typically women are the “waiters” in the relationships, right?  Especially because cultural and religious customs advise women to wait on a man to seek his wife.  So we, women, ultimately wait for men to choose us and court us, with hope that he will ultimately marry us.  But have you ever been in a relationship with […]

From time to time I like to sit back, relax, and spend some time taking a trip down memory lane by watching music videos from the “golden eras” of hip-hop and soul music via YouTube. If you’re a hip-hop head like me, you can almost let the videos roll one after the next (knowing all the words and even the year they were made). So after being on a video high for nearly an hour, […]

Things to consider before saying “I Do.”


black man sad and depressed
In my 20’s, most emotional baggage references were geared toward women.  In my experience, the words man and baggage would rarely occupy the same sentence. Although naive then, I was intelligent enough to know that it was just a matter of semantics. However, I still formed my opinions regarding how relationship matters should be handled, based on gender. Years of experience led me to believe that women tend to be more in touch with emotions while […]
