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.

It’s The Plumber. I’m Here To Fix Your Pipe!

Ladies and gentlemen, spilling your dirty laundry in public can be very detrimental to your reputation. I received a first hand view of that just recently. By the way, who says taking public transportation isn’t interesting? This is what went down: I was waiting impatiently at the bus stop, being that my bus was unsurprisingly ten minutes late, and ended up being an unwilling witness … Continue reading It’s The Plumber.

Students Exchange Vows At School

Original article by Crystal Harrison

At first when I saw the headline ‘Students Marry At School‘ on the Jamaica-Star website, my initial reaction was how cute it is that this young couple is playing around like that. But after reading through the entire article I realized that this was no joke to them at. The ceremony included a wedding cake, the school’s security guard as officiating minister, and fellow students and teachers as witnesses. There was even a reception held afterwards.

Pleasing others before yourself, that’s no bueno.

With all the madness in the past few days surrounding Kim K’s divorce and all the rumors about her marriage being staged for television brought about some deep thinking on my part, especially after hearing her statement on “not wanting to disappoint people.” How many of us go through life not wanting to disappoint others so we disregard our own feelings in the midst? I can attest to the fact that I have placed my feelings on hold in order to please others, but that is definitely not good. It comes down to trusting yourself and doing what you feel deep within your heart is best for you. Continue reading “Pleasing others before yourself, that’s no bueno.”

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.

Shacking Up Before He Puts A Ring On It.

Kai and I were discussing the issue of shacking up before getting married.  We tackled this issue from different perspectives, and weighed our answers based on the analysis of shacking options.

Shacking up before getting married gives you the opportunity to know the person before committing to life imprisonment. Ever heard the saying, ‘You don’t know a person until you live with them’.  When you are in a shackless relationship, you are pretty much oblivious to the others daily routine.  But, in a shacked up situation you become aware of what the other does at a more acute level. The little things that you found ‘cute’ no longer seem the same. They slowly start to become annoying with a capital ‘A’.

Is Sex The Most Important Thing In Relationships?

Is sex really important in relationships, as in to make the relationship last? The truth is, it is an important aspect, but if it becomes the most important thing then the relationship won’t go too far. There are other things to building a lasting relationship and sex cannot be the only foundation.

The most important thing to build a relationship on is love and communication. Love is not the same as sex and will never be the same; ‘Making love’ with someone is not the same as having ‘sex’. If it’s just about sex then it becomes a physical thing with no meaning.

How do you know when he/she’s the ‘one’?

How do you know when the person you’re dating is the ‘one’, meaning, the person you want to spend the rest of your life with? This question is often asked by people who have been dating for a while, and sometimes even by people who are already married. The truth is you can never be too sure; you meet someone, you fall inlove, and you feel like that person is your everything, but sometimes it doesn’t work out well.
