While contemplating my next move with Jon B, I’m realizing that aside from him being cute and seemingly good on paper, we really don’t have that much in common or at least nothing else that I can tell because he doesn’t talk about much. Sure, we both enjoy eating and indulging in cocktails, but other than that I only… Read More Program Change
Years ago when people actually read email forwards, I remember one that had been circulated quite a few times. It was called the 12 types of men and while it was really targeted a more”urban” audience with its references to thugs and baby daddies, but still had a few on there that everyone could relate to. Having… Read More Types of Men to Avoid When Dating
Everything about this latest situation is different. I woke up this morning to both dogs at the foot of the bed; Thelma on his side and Louise on my side. Every now and then, feeling each one turning around head as if to make sure we’re in our spot. After snapping the photo of our… Read More Down with the Swirl
Last night’s conversation with July Guy was GREAT, but it almost didn’t happen because after I had given him my number for him to (per his words, have a chat), all he did was fire off a flurry of text messages and not one was asking when I was free to talk. I hate that… Read More First Conversations with Someone New

Someone new reached out to me over the weekend online and sent this: I know there’s less than a snowball chance in hell that you will even respond to this message, but sending it anyway. Your profile is well written and you’re photos are great, depicting a woman who’s at the tip of her game.… Read More 5 Things Women Want in a Man
The funny thing about dating is that there are so many different types of men and situations out there so you really are placed in a position of picking your poison. My last date from a few months ago really had it together. He owned a couple of properties, had a stable career with no… Read More I Can Work with Men

They’re pretty much all the same. I really don’t think it matters which dating site you’re using because as long as a man can use the Internet, he can sign up on ALL of them. This genius has followed me from Black People Meet to Plenty of Fish and now this latest site. STILL dumb… Read More Some Men Are Clueless
I’m caught up in this vicious cycle where the levels of frustration are so bad that I say to hell with it all. I take down all of my decorations and pretty pictures, and might even leave some threatening note before finally ending things for good. After a couple of weeks or so, boredom usually… Read More We broke up, but I’m back…
Last week’s date marked the first time I’ve gone out with a non-black man and while one “quick” meet up will never allow me to claim an interracial dating experience, at least I was open coerced enough to have tried it. During that excruciating hour and eleven minutes with the hangover I’ll call Guido, a… Read More He Didn’t Wear Heels
