Thank God this story is behind a paywall. This way my older sister won’t come for my neck.
It’s not that I’m gonna write anything bad about her. It’s that the truth hurts when on the receiving end.
This is me spewing my truth.
A revelation recently discovered by me.
That’s hit like a ton of bricks.
I’m a boy mom. Two to be exact. And its been quite the learning experience from having grown up in a family dominated by women.
My son’s have taught me how vastly different they are from girls.
Your T shirt is wrinkled.
But I will
One of the best things for me growing up in the 80’s besides the music was movies. Current day films couldn’t compete with Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, The Terminator, and countless others.
Of them all Revenge of the Nerds was one of my favorites. The movie is about college geeks who bounce back after having been evicted from their dorm by an opposing fraternity, to ridicule them and win over some of the prettiest most popular girls on campus, who otherwise would never date them.
Some Youtube dating coaches today seem to be making content for…
No matter your age
Oh I meant to tell you, I broke up with ____.
Had this have been three years ago I would’ve been ecstatic for my mom. But the truth is, after a falling out between her and my sister that lasted in months of silence between us, I could care less.
She met her former boo on a dating site about five years ago. He lived out of state and wasted no time filling her head with dreams.
Within three months of “dating”, she professed she would move to his state, they would marry, and live in…
They say be mindful of how long your single. Prolonged periods of singlehood can breed complacency, decrease sex energy.
And while that may be true, so far I’ve experienced something different; peace.
Upon my first relationship twenty years ago, people were different. Society was different. Finding people and entering into relationships seemed so much easier then.
Maybe because we didn’t have YouTubers teaching destructive tricks and tactics. Maybe because after high school and college we couldn’t access each other through a phone screen.
Or maybe human beings were just better then. And as we have moved along in time, family…
Some of the most interesting scenarios take place on public transportation. Especially at night.
I learned a few things, witnessed a few things working in it to say the least. I’ve been entertained and saddened all in one trip, moving people to and fro.
Every now and again a unique situation pops up that reminds me its not so much what you don’t have, but using what you do to the fullest to get what you want.
One Saturday night a young man, I’d say mid 20’s was sitting in the third row window seat, when a young lady boarded…
I’m just gonna put this whole “high value” mess to rest. High income doesn’t equal high value.
Don’t believe me?
Let me explain.
My father was a man's man. Raised by a father who dropped out of school in the sixth grade who was an astute craftsman. He and his brothers built the home my dad grew up in from the ground up on their own. In those days men wore timepieces, top hats and coats. They prided themselves off being providers, that was a given. Character, integrity, your word being your bond, also made the man.
In his working…
I wish I could explain it the way I see it. In regards to my marriage, all I knew was that I wasn’t gonna be unhappily married. To put it short the time came when I was unhappy. So off to court we went.
That was four years ago. And to this day I get the question if I’d remarry.
The answer is yes.
Let’s begin with:
Everything is risky.
Like the late great motivational speaker Jim Rohn has said, “It’s all risky.”
From starting a business to walking out the door in the morning. …
Ever since I was young my Grandmother has had the same mantra, “Take what people say with a grain of salt.” As a child I didn’t quite know what that meant.
Hmmph. I do now. Best believe over the years I’ve trained myself to observe actions, and leave words to the wind.
While online dating a guy messaged me. I gave him my number and he called immediately. After the formalities we got into our dating history.
Both of us were the same age and divorced. His marriage lasted about a year, mine six years.
He revealed now, that he…
There’s a fine line between perception and reality. Social media has given rise to false illusions of beauty and badness that in the real world, doesn’t exist. Between getting the perfect face beat to taking insane amounts of selfies before getting the perfect one — most will do the most to run the numbers up.
It’s validating after all. Especially when the attention comes from the opposite sex.
Sadly, these images aren’t real.
Here’s the story:
One of my IG followers is a former classmate. We were cool in those years but not friends. Anyway, she posts sexy selfies time…
I know because I’m one of them
This is a question for men, “Do you wanna know where the good women are? Or do you wanna stick to doctored social media posts as the measuring stick for what’s good and real?”
You don’t have to answer just yet. Because there are some things I’d like to explain first.
You may have heard this before, but good women are everywhere. Hiding in plain sight. We don’t take notice to what’s quiet. It’s not attention-grabbing. So often it’s undervalued and overlooked.
Good women are silent. We may not be the…
