You Ruined the Fatty: The 21st Century Version of The Star Bellied Sneetches

I intended on writing about something related to relationships today. I really and truthfully did. Like most times when I sat down to write the article I found myself distracted and on Twitter. Then, I was distracted and on Instagram. Somewhere in between all of the distractions I found a way to have intellectual conversation […]

Another Year Goes By and I’m Feeling Fine

I pen this post at least once a year and typically it posts around my birthday. It’s my annual reminder to everyone who is celebrating a birthday and also dealing with the slight depression of missed goals and deadlines that we should all calm down. The fact of the matter is that life’s goals don’t […]

Why You Always Hating? – Congrats to @Lira_Galore!

  I know the grammar is horrid in that title. However, this is a blog and as I’ve said before if I wanted everything on this site to be literary masterpieces I’d write for the NY Times. Anyway… today I got to thinking about two things; everybody thinks my blogs are about them and everybody […]

Letter To My Girlfriend About Football

I first posted this in September of 2009. Since then, it’s been syndicated, duplicated, sampled and responded to by several other sites on the Internet. With the start of the football season upon us, it’s only right that we post this again for all of you to enjoy. Babe, You know that I appreciate you. […]

The Decision to Marry Is Not About You

Recently, I’ve been having a lot of conversations with women who are ready for marriage and family. As crazy as it is that people make the decision about marriage by themselves instead of as a couple is weird to me but I’ll set that aside for now. Later in the conversation I always ask these […]

Fair or Foul: Mike Epps makes me wonder, When does flirting become cheating?

Sup fam, I know y’all don’t hear from me that much and I apologize. I’m working on getting my thoughts out there more frequently. I hope the contributions from other writers on the blog have held y’all down. I wish I could write everyday… but the way my job is setup is I got a […]

You’re Alone Because You’re Alone

A lot of people shutter at the thought of going on vacation alone or having to live without companionship. There’s a host of things that people want to do but they don’t do simply because they feel they can’t do them without the presence of another individual. After having this conversation with a friend of […]

That Time Your Relationship Got Away From You

The relationship ends and you’ve got more questions and fewer answers. You’re not really sure what happened. You were happy, they seemed happy but somehow the relationship ended. As you sit and start to wonder what transpired you realize that this really is a case when a relationship simply got away from you. It can […]

Why Does It Seem Like Men Have Relationship A.D.D.?

Women are constantly struggling to understand the disappearing man, the reappearing man, the catch him if you can man, or the man who just doesn’t seem to get it. I understand. It’s frustrating. Why can’t he just sit still? Why won’t he just follow through? Why did suddenly stop calling or texting? It’s simple. Some […]

Why Are The Women At Fight Night?

I may have been 13 or 14 when I saw Girlfight. Something about that movie always made me attracted to Michelle Rodriguez. I kind of still am. It was something fascinating about a woman wanting to be in a boxing ring. It’s a sport that seemingly has nothing feminine about it. It’s a sport that […]
