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 …

Woman to Woman: That’s (y)OUR Man? Finale

If you and your girlfriends have never had one of those covert black ops missions where you had to pull up on somebody’s person of interest, you haven’t lived or loved hard enough yet…. or maybe you just got a good dude, or maybe you think popping up is childish. Either way, feel free to …

Woman to Woman: That’s (y)OUR Man? Pt. 2

So I left off letting y’all know that me and bird #167 had a conversation by phone where she was acting like what I had to say really didn’t matter. (Catch up on that story here.) Not gonna lie, at first I was a little perturbed because I felt like I was trying to really …

Woman to Woman: That’s (y)OUR Man?

This story might piss a few people off… but when I say I don’t give two shits, let’s be clear: I don’t give two shits, one shit, red shit, blue shit. So inevitably, it’s Valentine’s Day. Often referred to by many as Singles Awareness Day -S.A.D. In this case I’ll refer to it as Valen-he-ain’t-mines …

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. …

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. …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Falling in Love with the Representative

My feelings for you were like honey dripping from a wooden spoon into a bowl of sweet unbaked desserts. Slow and sensual, raw and warm. I’d look into your eyes and my heart would ignite and send tingles all over my body. Everything felt like a fairy tale. Magically unbelievably believable. Every day thoughts of …

Did You Just Call Me the B-Word?

When a woman makes a man feel some type of way he’s quick to call her the b word, that right, bitter. Bitter (adj): causing painful emotions : felt or experienced in a strong and unpleasant way. Yes, a break-up/heart-break can cause someone to be bitter, but lemme say this. This isn’t a I-hate-all-men-so-imma-talk-endless-shit-about-you-like-I-keep-a-pair-of-balls-on-a-necklace blog. …

The Inner Hoe: Just a Theory

There’s a hoe in you; whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not. This goes for women AND men. Not like, “oh em gee I’m possessed, there’s a hoe in me” but like, “I’m conservative, but I can get down with the get down under the right circumstances.” Hoe by definition …

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 …
