“Statistics” by Lyfe Jennings

Some express their feelings about relationships by writing, others through lyrical expression….

I’m not necessarily a fan of the harmonizing in the song, but pay attention to the lyrics as he delivers a thought-provoking commentary on modern day romance.

Ladies, are you taking notes?

25% of all men are unstable
25% of all men can’t be faithful
30% of them don’t mean what they say
and 10% of the remainin’ 20 is gay

That leaves you a 10% chance of ever findin’ your man
That means you better pay attention to these words that I say
I’m gonna teach you how expose the 90%
and show you what to do to keep the other 10.


Don’t be a booty call,

If he don’t respect you girl he gon’ forget you girl,


If he’s in a relationship

And he will cheat on her that means he will cheat on you.


Tell him that you’re celibate

And if he wants some of your goodies he gon’ have to work for it.


Be the person you wanna find

Don’t be a nickel out here lookin’ for a dime.


(Verse 2)

15% of all men got a complex

15% of all men don’t practice safe sex

20% of them are from homes without a father

so there’s a 50/50 chance that you’ll marry a coward

Something to think about when you’re takin’ a shower

Something to swallow when you drank your bottled water

I’m gonna teach you how to expose the 90%

and show you what to do to keep the other 10


Be patient! He’s waiting!

You don’t gotta settle for that

Leave all that stress alone!

Get you a backbone!

Stop being sorry for yourself!

Chances make champions

It’s gonna take (patience)

Time is still (wastin’)





Hangover - a let down following great excitement or excess. Wow. This one sentence describes nearly all of my dating and relationship experiences! I'm a 30 year-old woman muddling through the Los Angeles dating scene and yes - Believe all that you've heard about the screwed up men and women in La-La Land. This blog is of my actual experiences that will either make you chuckle, laugh out loud or maybe say "aw.....". If your dating hangovers seem worse than the next person's, read on, post a comment and enjoy! Carmen
