Ladies: Why do you love what's bad for you? You will completely overlook the nice guy to be with the bad boy. But then you wonder why there are so few nice guys around. You haven't realized that almost everything men do is done to attract women. So if you want men to change, it starts with YOU. If you start showing love to the men that treat you right, not the ones that abuse you, maybe you wouldn't be in the space you're in. Think about it. If the most popular girls in high school only dated "nerds," how many boys would have been in the library instead of the corner? If men saw women fall for "good dudes" that cared for them instead of "jerks" that mistreated them, maybe they would aspire t
Are you in a relationship that seems as if it is stalled in the bedroom? If so, your first thought may be to terminate the relationship. But, what if your relationship is long-term? What if you are married? What if you really do love your partner? What steps should you take then? When it comes to being unhappy in the bedroom, it is important to know that ending a marriage or a relationship should only be used as a last approach. Instead, you will want to take steps to spice things up. Doing so may improve more than just your intimacy, but it may do wonders for your relationship in general. As nice as it is to hear that you can and should spice things up and in the bedroom, you may be
This day and age it is becoming more popular…….or should we say more OPEN for people to discuss their extracurricular affairs such as being swingers, having sex parties, threesomes, open relationships, etc. The truth is, these types of sexual encounters have been going on for centuries, but it was a dark kept secret shared only amongst those involved. Then we have heard the terms “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” “Mommas baby Daddy’s maybe,” or the songs “As We Lay,” “Secret Lovers,” “In Love With Another Man,” and the list goes on and on. We have heard…or even been a part of these sayings more than often then we should. But as we all know, these type of relationships are one sided and are kno

Poem Written by: Terrell Mercer Yo your beautiful for a big girl…mami cute but anorexic Dude you fine but too short…Fat dude…ugh….approach left felt disrespected Tell me exactly who are you Big hearted yet disregarded because you’re a female size 22 Or a man who only stand about 4 foot 5 Tiny in stature but a giant in size Defined not by these standards set a time ago by those that didn’t even fit the mold Just peddling fetishes & fantasies if their truth be told Uniqueness is underrated because they want YOU to fit their definition of acceptance They want you to hide your love for you and stifle your free spirit with negligence They want the measuring tape of value to be wrapped around your
Written by Melica Barnett Do you feel lost or that something is missing in your life? So many of us walk through life feeling numb, lost, and desperate for a deeper connection. To be truly fulfilled and happy, it is critical to become well-balanced by exploring your passion and life’s purpose. Nothing is better than feeling satisfaction and at peace; it is important to remember fulfillment is a right, not a privilege. Once you understand your WHY, you will clearly understand what drives, inspires, and motivates your life to do the things that make you smile, laugh, and forget time. Look inside yourself for what makes you truly happy: Listen to your inner self, being careful and brutally ho
As usual, Issa Rae’s Insecure is stirring up Twitter drama, and, more importantly, nuanced intra-community dialogue. #WheresLawrence Jay Ellis, who plays former love interest Lawrence, will not be returning to season three of the hit HBO comedy Insecure. And fans had a lot to say about that decision. The #LawrenceHive was not taking this sitting down, launching an online petition and even a website (whereslawrence.com) dedicated to keeping their leading man on the show. Fans argued that Lawrence provided critical male perspectives and plots to a show centered around female characters. Lawrence was a draw to male audience members in which they could see nuanced portrayals of average black men
Written by Ernest Jackson You are a singe mom working hard with multiple businesses and you some how make time to become a Celebrity Baker? Wow how did it all start for you? It all started with a thought and a mindset of becoming a Celebrity Chef & Baker. I have always wanted to be among the great Chef’s I watched on t.v. Growing up. I just did what I do best (cooking) and made sure I posted to my social media accounts. One day I got a call from a celebrity barbers’ manager and ended up catering his event. It went up from there. With all the different types of treats how did you decide to go with Cheesecake? I decided to go with cheesecake because it has always been my favorite dessert. It h
There comes a time in every relationship where we reflect upon the good, the bad, and all the glory that falls in between. When it comes to matters of the heart, we have a good reason to examine how the relationship is serving us--or rather, how it's not serving us any longer. Whether you're a woman or a man, one of the most empowering things to practice in life, is the act of self reflection...especially in your romantic endeavors. Let's delve much deeper and examine why. What You Think Isn't Always What You Know You have more than likely witnessed on several occasions, how friends, family members, associates and co-workers, get involved with the man or woman of their dreams based on how th
