Ashley’s Anecdote: Date #180

I have had some pretty terrible dates. This, is one of them. Once upon a time I decided to go out with one of those peanut butter boys I told y’all to stay away from. I shoulda known from the beginning that it was a dead end, and yet I still exchanged numbers with him. …

Goldilocks and the 3 Baes

Sooooo, this post is probably gonna make me lose all my hoes but oh well. In this dating phase I feel like Goldilocks and the 3 bears. I am Goldilocks of course and the bears = baes. I’ve been wandering through the thickets of the dating forest for awhile so I decided to stop by …

Forbidden Fruit: Part 2 – Fra-lationship

In case you missed part 1, click the link here to get the first half off the story and then continue below: So here’s the problem: homeboy told me upfront, like way in the beginning he wasn’t looking/ready for a relationship. Which was cool, because in the beginning, I wasn’t even entertaining him in that …

Forbidden Fruit: Part 1

You ever see a train wreck happening (metaphorically of course, if you saw it happen in real life, you’d probably need some serious therapy) but anyways, you see and know a train wreck is about to happen and all you can do is let it happen. I have something like an out-of-body experience every time …

The Good, the Bad, the Ugly: Memories

I’m so pissed. I keep having night terrors about the men I used to love and care about. It’s bad enough that when I’m awake I have to make myself forget what it felt like waking up next to him. You never think you’ll miss someone’s funky hot morning breath until each of your mornings …

Love Lessons: Learn it. Live it.

One of the worst feelings I’ve probably ever experienced with a significant insignificant other is being in love alone. Feeling or caring deeply about another person who can’t/won’t/doesn’t reciprocate. I’ll never forget the last time I wore my heart on my sleeve and a guy metaphorically ripped that shirt off and A-Town stomped on it. …

Pre-Independence Day: Fuck Adulthood.

Man fuck adulthood. I wish someone had told me as a child that this shit is a trap. I’m 27, man-less, child-less, at a job I just did a career change to this year after being unemployed for half the year before. Though I managed to successfully swerve student loans, credit card debt and a car …

I Ain’t Got No Type–Lie Again.

I hate, excuse me, I loathe when guys ask: “So what type of guy do you like?” In my mind, I instantly cue the song “I ain’t got no type” but if I really think about it, I actually do. Most guys that I’ve ever been in a relationship/whatevership with have been fairly similar as …

Guard Your Heart: How to tell if he is a F*ckboy

Here’s what I found that a lot of f*ck boys have in common: They don’t want to go on dates. –Yes, Mr. Netflix and chill is a f*ckboy. If he doesn’t want to take you to the next step outside your place or his place (if he even has one), what makes you think he …

Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing: Friend or Foe?

Sometimes you already know the truth about a situation, but you just refuse to accept it. I find that I do this a lot. I say, oh I don’t know we’ll see, but I be knowing. After 27 years of living, I  think I’ve finally learned my learning style…. I only learn the hard way. …

People Presents: Unwrapping the Truth

I truly think that every person is a gift and has a gift. Depending on how a gift is wrapped, people tend to judge the quality of what’s inside it. Think about it like Christmas time when you were a child. Chances are you snuck under the tree when your parents weren’t looking to see …

Ashley’s Anecdotes: Baby Mama Brawl…Butt Ass Naked Pt 2

I finally make it “home” and was there all of 3 days before we get into fight. I honestly don’t even remember why we were fighting, I was probably being needy, tired of asking him to spend quality time with me (because that’s my love language). He left one night, didn’t come home. I’m sitting …

Ashley’s Anecdotes: Baby Mama Brawl…Butt Ass Naked

So almost exactly a year ago I published That’s Not Yo Bae Bish where I mentioned a bunch of situations that were seemingly hypothetical, but were actually real life events. I promise, I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried. At the time I said that I would do a slow leak where I …

If you thought this was gonna be some flowery post about how to find your one true love, you are clearly new to my blog. This a guide on how to spot the not. So just about every girl has that “one guy”. The one who has broken her heart countless times, the one she …

So Why Are You Single? 6 Reasons Why You’re Still Single

I absolutely LOATHE this question. 1. Because EVERY new possibae asks it. 2. Because after being asked so many times, it’s like damn why the hell am I single? A real humbling experience when you start to think something is wrong with you. Every new possibae I meet: So why are you single? Me (in …

Where Dey at Doe?

Wrote this blog about a year ago (year ago *schmoney dance*) Oftentimes I wish I was born in a different decade. One where the men cared to be men and court a lady. I’m reallllly into that whole “I’m gonna make you my lady by any means necessary” mentality that men seem to have lost. …

Captain Save-A-Hoe 2.0

Everybody knows how much I despise hoes, but for those who don’t know… I could go in about how your vagina is a revolving door; welcoming any visitor that pushes hard enough to bust those doors wide open. And she is a revolving door because referencing her as a car with excessive mileage would indicate …

Got Baggage??

They clearly call them “ex(es)” for a reason, so why is it that we continue to let them stay with us in spirit, long after their physical presence is gone? It’s like the Ghost of Christmas Ex haunts us in new relationships. Now I understand baggage very well, everybody has it. And while I do …
