What is a Bae?

More recently the term “Bae” has been floating off the lips of damn near every single ready to mingle person I know.  I want to emphasize the fact that I said every single (as in not in a relationship) person I know, because the truth is, there ain’t no couples out there only referring to their …

Ain’t No Bae Bih

Presenting my first ever #TakeoverTuesday! The following post is brought to you by featured guest blogger CHADxTALKS. Comment, share, enjoy! What do you think of when you hear the word “bae?” Most people use this term to refer to their significant other, basically a shortened version of “babe” or “baby.” It has even developed into …

Stop Recycling…Lovers

I’m so disappointed in myself. I fear that I am on the path to do just what I said I would never do again… recycle ex-baes. It’s about to be that time of the year again, “cuffing season” the point in time where the weather gets colder and the desire to have someone to lay …

50 Shades of Grey: The Whatevership Saga

Alright, so it’s that time again: I can’t sleep I need to vent Mother Nature is kicking my emotional and physical ass So, I feel like it’s safe to say that most women have experienced a whatever-ship in their lives. A whatever-ship is somewhere between a real relationship and a mixed signals/emotions/friends-with-benefits setup. I like …

August Goals

“Those who fail to plan, plan to fail.” – Benjamin Franklin So I was inspired by another blogger to post my goals for the month, I thought it was a great idea and a way to help me feel more accomplished by the end of the month. The problem is that I’m such a planner, …

If It Walk Like a Duck

When someone shows you who they are, believe them. Simple advice, few embrace it. Why is it so easy to see things in hindsight after you’ve been through hell and high water? Why is it so easy to tell someone else what to do about their situation when you know good and damn well that you wouldn’t/haven’t …

Don’t Waste My Time B

I’ve probably said this before, but there are fewer things that I hate more than wasted time. That has GOT to be one of my biggest pet peeves. I hate inefficiency and I hate bullshittery. Yes I know that’s not a real word, but if it existed, you’d know exactly what it meant. By now …

Twenty-Something: How Did I Get Here?

If you’d asked me when I was a teenager if I would end up being twenty-sexy, single AND childless I would have scoffed and rolled my eyes in that annoying way that teenagers do. Never. Ever. In a million years would I have thought that I would have made it this far without one of …

Ain’t No Pedestal Bihhh

I’ve got a real bad habit of putting men on a pedestal. Of highlighting all their good qualities and thinking that these traits really set them apart from any other human with a penis. When my friends would find wrong in these individuals I’d fight them tooth and nail to defend this man, screaming “you …

Butt Ass Nekkid

Naked. There I was standing butt ass nekkid in front of this man that I loved and that I thought cared about me. Wearing my finest skin suit, I stood approximately 5ft 2in tall of brown sugared body. Baring all my privates, from the cups of my butt cheeks to the curves of each breast …

Tinder Testimony #1: Where the Weirdos Are

So a friend of mine published a post not too long ago regarding online dating, feel free to go check out that post at cheztheprez.com. He poses the question of why people, namely black people, are ashamed to admit that they use online dating tools, more specifically,  a new app called Tinder. I responded then …

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. …

Relationship or Nah?

“I’m not looking for a relationship right now.” If a guy hits you with this line, run. Run far and run fast. If you stay, you are asking to get your feelings hurt, trust me. When a guy tells you this, he’s telling the truth. So just stop with all of the scenarios you’ve made …

That’s Not Yo Bae Bish

So the last 2 months of my life have been a real sh!t show, I am truly debating whether or not I want to publish a tell all book or just slow leak the stories here. Since I’m no celebrity I don’t know how well a book would do, so slow leak it is. In …

Cuffing Season Over – Season Recap

So I think it’s safe to say that cuffing season is officially over. (cuffing season. n. A period in time, usually during the winter months, where individuals find a significant other/ boo, to spend time with.) I guess you can say I got pseudo “cuffed”. I entertained a couple of guys. And have since ceased …

He Stinks, Literally.

You know those situations where you’re in the presence of folk you kinda-sorta know but it’s really somewhat circumstantial as to why y’all are in the same space? Those times where that person might have something stuck between their teeth or something in their hair. You analyze the situation to see if you care enough …

10 Tips for Better Box

This is, by no means, a how-to blog. But the idea crossed my mind last week and I thought, what the hell why not? Today’s topic is “How to Have Better Box.” I think it’s only fair that I do 2 posts, one for the womenz on how to provide better box and one for …
