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 …

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* …

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. …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Thoughts of a Serial Girlfriend

One of the few things I like about getting older, is learning more about yourself. You never realize just how young and dumb you were at one point until you start to get old and wise. I’m woman enough to confess that I was relationship(ally) dumb. Thank God I’m smarter now, but that thang was …

Bitter Women vs. Hurt Men

Two words: Double. Standard. Men be sooooooo quick to scrutinize a hurt woman; said woman is usually in one of a few predicaments: She’s been hurt and still coping [bitter] She’s been hurt and doesn’t know how to cope [bitter] She’s been hurt and currently getting hurt [bitter] Men will tear apart a bitter woman, …

Happy Father’s Day [syyyyykeeee]

I blame him. Well, only because I don’t know who else’s fault it could be. For every woman that has been raised fatherless, you’re probably just as fucked up off-beat as I am. It does something to you, not having one does. You don’t always realize it when you’re younger. But as you get older …
