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 …

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* …

To Wait or Not to Wait: Sex is the Question

It never fails that any time the “when to have sex” question comes up, I end up wanting to throat chop a guy for being a guy. Like, the logic of men is truly baffling. Let me preface this post by saying, this here, is my opinion… so if you don’t like it, you can …

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 …

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. …

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 …

Her: Did you know he was married? Me: No. Her: We’ve been married a year, together for 5. Me: Oh. Her: So I just need to hear it from you, are you two in a relationship? Me: Relationship, no. Communicating yes. Her: Well honey you can have him because I’m divorcing his ass. Me: *deep …

Ashley’s Anecdotes: Accidentally the Mistress

There are just certain situations you think you’d never be in, this, was one of them. If you’ve followed my blog for any extended amount of time you’ve probably read enough to know that I absolutely despise side chicks. Between the numerous posts devoted to these hoes girls and the constant digs I take every …

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. …

It Goes Down in the DMs: The Truth about Community D

So here recently after some intense girl talk, I’ve determined that it does indeed go down in the DM. Social media has made your average person 100 times more accessible and appealing, and with nothing but cyber space and opportunity, nobodies think they’re somebodies and all the wires have been crossed. There is no such …

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 …
