Rob Kardashian: Tricked and Tried

So I’m thinking that I can’t be the only one… that’s ever slept with someone and immediately wish I could take my sex back. / Not that it was bad, but just because you know you’ve signed on the dotted line for another dead end relationshit. The last guy I dealt with, I really had …

Issa Fact: Why Men Lie

For the life of me, I’ll never be able to figure out why men lie when they don’t have to. Dudes lie for sport like they get an Oscar after they get the woman to believe them. I was dealing with this dude heavy, not officially my guy, but every chance he got he reassured …

When the Whatevership Ends: How to Cope

Moving on after a break up is extremely hard, it’s even harder when the guy was never really yours to begin with. It almost feels like because you two were never “official” that you aren’t allowed to feel the pain of the separation. When whateverships go bad, a whole different can of worms is opened …

Miss Me? When His Options Run Out

At first my fear was being forgotten. Being tucked away deep into the synapses of your mind. Where only parts of me would flicker when you were bored or heard something that reminded you of me. I thought that you might shelve me. Pack me away on aisle 3 and continue to shop without remembering …

Mr. Grey is Back: Old Habits Die Hard

If there’s one thing I learned, it’s that most people are creatures of habit. You get into a swing of doing things a certain way, at a certain time and anything outside of that doesn’t really cross your mind unless something unexpected comes up. Use caution when this comes to men and relationships. One time, …

Dating is a Gamble: All Bets are Off

I don’t know that there’s anything more frustrating than putting time and energy into something that does not yield results. This could be related to just about anything: weight loss, career advancement, hair growth, relationships, whatever. I think that’s why I get so frustrated with the whole dating thing. When I start dating someone exclusively …

When He Doesn’t Choose You

I think for every man there is at least one woman that has the power to make him wanna act right, the sucky thing is, when you find out that you are not that woman. I have come to that realization at least 3 times now and I am tirrrrreeedddd of not being the one. …

50 Shades of Grey: Becoming Ms. Grey

I know. I know, I know, I know. I’ve usually done nothing but talk about how much I can’t stand “Mr. Grey” — i.e. that fella that continuously keeps you in a gray area when it comes to a real relationship status. But, I have breaking news. I get it, I get it. *Drizzy voice* …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

30+ Men & Their PYTs

So as a recent single woman I’ve noticed something… men who are 30+ love them some PYTs (pretty young thangs). I kid you not, the last few times I’ve went out I’ve been approached by so many 30-something year olds that I felt like I had “Try me, I’m young” written on my forehead! Now, …
