My Girlfriend Doesn’t Like Kissing

As hilarious as the title is, this is actually quite a serious issue in some relationships. I recently read on my newest obsession the Jamaica Star website about a guy having trouble coping in a relationship with the girl he likes not wanting to kiss him. After composing myself from the kind of laughter that gives you a tummy ache, I had a sudden flashback … Continue reading My Girlfriend Doesn’t Like Kissing

He puts his mom first, his woman last.

They say that a man who loves and respects his mother and family, in general, is a good man, but should he always put them first over the woman he’s dating or even married to? I think not. And to be honest, I’ve never been flattered by that fact. If his life revolves around his mother then what part does his woman play? How will … Continue reading He puts his mom first, his woman last.

The Glamour of Online Dating

Online dating has no doubt been a source of great debate with many people viewing it as an alien, ineffective way to stirr long lasting relationships. Just a few years back, a couple that acknowledged to have dated online prior to meeting physically were looked down upon and even vilified in some quarters.

“I Have Permission to Cheat…”

As otherworldly as that headline sounds, I kid you not. Such things are apparently taking place in relationships. I believe they casually call it ‘open relationship.’ Whatever the term is for that, the lifestyle definitely has me rethinking if it still holds the values of a relationship when it’s that open. Regardless of what the person giving the permission says, feelings are bound to get hurt and the end results will certainly not be pretty. Continue reading ““I Have Permission to Cheat…””

Oceans apart: will the relationship work?

By Kai

He’s in Japan. She’s in the U.S. Having a long distance relationship when you’re States apart can be hard, but when you’re living in two separate countries is just beyond difficult. Skype has been an enormous help but not even that awesome invention can subdue the loneliness and longing felt by the two. Welcome to the life and ongoing issues that my friend has been facing since she started dating her boyfriend. Continue reading “Oceans apart: will the relationship work?”

My boyfriend, my hero…hopefully

My girls and I are always having discussions about the kind of qualities we look for in men. Often times we say he has to be determine, ambitious, kind, attractive, and the list goes on. But what I hope for above all the other attributes, yes even before hotness, is courage. Lord knows I do not want a sissy. And if a man acts cowardly in times where his strength is required, need be physical, mental, or emotional, then that will affect my overall image of him. To be honest, it would ruin even the first impression that was obviously good if Continue reading “My boyfriend, my hero…hopefully”

The side chick wants more commitment?

A few days ago I stopped by a Dunkin Donuts on my way home to get a cup of my favorite Vanilla Chai tea. While waiting anxiously for this sweet beverage to be served to me, I couldn’t help notice the very interesting conversation going on between two friends at a table further right from where I was standing. Not that I was ease dropping, Continue reading “The side chick wants more commitment?”

“Help! My girlfriend beats me.”

There are many cases of women being physically abused around the globe; whether it’s by the hands of their husbands or boyfriends, it’s still a horrible thing happening to one too many. Often times these women find the courage to come forward and seek help, but sometimes they don’t. People can say anything when they’re not the one going through the ordeal, but it’s definitely not something they can easily get out of. Sometimes there are children involved, or other circumstances which makes it hard to just leave. It’s certainly not easy but there are surely shelters, agencies, and other organizations established to provide aid to battered and abused women when they do seek help, but after reading a recent article online, I began thinking what if it was the other way around. What if it’s the man being abused by the woman Continue reading ““Help! My girlfriend beats me.””

Hands off b**ch!

Not certain if we’ve posted about homewreckers in the past but still, I feel it’s an issue that should be addressed on the regular. Ladies, do you have female friends or have noticed some female in general that are just straight up catty and always be flirting with your man, even though they are well aware he’s taken? Well, my advice to you is to tell that girl to step and make sure she gets the message loud and clear. Some women just have no class. How dare you lust for another woman’s man and attempt at bringing your nasty ass self next to him? That’s just rude. Get your own or tune into an episode of “Living Single,” you might learn a lesson or two. 

Let me pose this question at you ladies, Continue reading “Hands off b**ch!”

“He keeps our relationship a secret”

My friends and I debate about this issue ever so often but we always end up with the same conclusion, if a woman is dating a man that keeps their relationship a secret from his family and especially his friends then maybe she’s not the only one he’s seeing. And that’s usually the case. Another thing is that he doesn’t want to be seen in public with you because he isn’t proud to be with you. A man won’t claim a woman he doesn’t want. Most likely he’s getting entertained from all your investments in the relationship but he doesn’t think you’re good enough to introduce to his loved ones.  Continue reading ““He keeps our relationship a secret””

What makes men attractive?

My friends and I have frequent discussions on what we find attractive about the opposite sex. Sometimes what one finds hot the other completely disagrees with. Therefore, we concluded our heated conversation with the fact that women, like men, have different preferences. Our attraction is based on their looks, height, weight, job, ride, qualifications, pocket, and whether or not they have children (seriously, this says a lot about him). Some were very specific with the details but stuck more to the physical aspects but in my opinion, these are all stereotypical concepts and attraction should lie beyond appearance; it’s more about personality and what goes on inside his head. I mean, a man can be hot but has nothing else going for himself. And no offense, no one wants a loser.  Continue reading “What makes men attractive?”

Do you really want a nice guy?

How contrary is it that women often say they want a nice and honest guy but always date the bad guys instead? It’s quite simple actually; nice guys finish last while bad guys get all the action. A man will often find himself in the ‘friend zone’ when he provides support and comfort for a woman. No matter how her current boyfriend mistreats her she’ll never run to his wide open arms, but instead she’ll head for his shoulders to lean on and cry an ocean of tears. Continue reading “Do you really want a nice guy?”

Is dating still necessary?

I pity the fool who doesn’t take courting seriously and dives into bed first. There’s so much to gain from spending time with a person and learning about their personality, interests, and basically if they’re sane. I mean why would you sleep with someone who you’ve only just met at a club or bar, then wake up the next day with regrets? Not only is that sleazy, but if you aren’t careful then you might be setting yourself up to contract STDs.

Age ain’t nothing but a number. Really?

Aaliyah famously crooned, “Age ain’t nothing but a number”. But is it really just a number? Usually when an older gentleman is spotted with a younger woman, the conclusion is two fold: He is a wealthy old man with money to spend looking to revive days gone by. While she is a young, naive, innocent girl looking for a sugar daddy to upgrade her lifestyle and pay her bills.
