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 …

Ashley’s Anecdote: Girl Fight Part 2

Check out Part 1 here… I swear I blinked and in 1.2 seconds all of them were just taking turns tagging Catalyst. Now I have to superman dive over the backseat because I can’t get out on my side because my shit-talking friend has parked too close to the truck beside us. Defense is seemingly …

Ashley’s Anecdote: Girl Fight Part 1

There are certain situations you just never think you’ll be in… this was one of them. I’m proud to say that I have repented from some of my ratchet ways, so I no longer fight girls on the corner of college street. But there was a time, when I was not above it. Circa January …

Spoken Word: ShEther-Fake Love

  I really wanted to be mad considering how shit went down; I was bamboozled, found out you both were just clowns. But I’m actually somewhat relieved and I feel bad for the girl. Cuz at this very second she’s still living in her delusional world. The one where she believes that she’ll be the …

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 …

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 …

Forbidden Fruit: Part 2 – Fra-lationship

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 …

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. …

Post-Independence Day: Find your Freedom

Well Happy Belated Birthday Amurica… I’m truly happy you’ve gotten your freedom. Now, now I’d like to have my freedom. *cues Beyonce* I feel like I spend  a lot of time wondering what the difference is between myself and those who I view as “successful”.  One of my favorite quotes in regards to that thought: …

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. …

Playing the Hand you’re Dealt: Present vs. Potential

So I consider myself to be a pretty good judge of character, but I have made the GRAVE mistake in thinking that a good judge of character is synonymous with a good judge of men choice. I have made piss poor choices in men every since I stopped thinking they were stupid and gross in …

Let that Hurt Go: Lessons in Learning your Lesson

Anybody else out there have really realistic dreams or should I say nightmares? I find that what I often try to suppress in my conscious mind often seeps into my subconscious, so either way I’m forced to deal with it. I won’t tell the story of what dream I just woke up from for fear …
