How to Fake an Orgasm

Immediately after the first few strokes I regretted the decision to let him hit. After being celibate for so long, my desires finally whispered louder than my conscience. I let curiosity kill the cat. Or at least I wished the cat would be killed, these little baby strokes weren’t enough to even make her purr. …

When You Run Into Your Ex

So the other night I ran into an ex-bae and his new mom. At first I didn’t think much about it because it’s not a situation I’m upset about. I’ll admit, when it all fell down a few months ago I was pissed. Felt all those typical feelings of betrayal, hurt, anger … blasé, blasé. I only …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Keep it a Buck: Sorry A** Men

He says: I’m sorry. The words echo like quarters flung carelessly into a well 20 feet deep. A deafening loud silence followed by a misting splash, accompanied with the ripple of hushed sorries. The truth is, she already knew. She already knew he was “sorry” and still wanted to believe that he could be more than that. …

Body Count: What is a Hoe? QTNA

Can somebody PLEASE explain to me, what makes a hoe a hoe? I’ve been in numerous circles asking this same question and can’t seem to come to a consensus. I remember back in the day, most guys would ask a chick her body count to determine if she was a hoe. If the number was …

Love or Lust? 3 Tips to Tell the Difference

One of the biggest mistakes people make when dating is interpreting lust… as love. This will undoubtedly end in heartache. Lust by definition is an emotion or feeling of intense desire in the body. Love by definition is an intense feeling of deep affection. Bruh, even the dictionary doesn’t really know how to differentiate the …

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 …

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 …
