Valentine’s Day is a widely celebrated day of love and romance – and it will be here before we know it. Couples and lovebirds come out in droves to show their love and appreciation for one another with gifts, roses, and an overload of chocolates. If you’re single, I’m sure this day can be annoying if you allow it to. Many of us don’t like being made to feel like we’re intentionally being left out especially because of our relationship status! Trust me, I’ve been there. I say enough with all that. Self-love is the most important form of love there is. And the love you have for yourself should be celebrated! If you’re single, you have as much right as anyone to enjoy your Valentine’s Day as you see fit.

Cheating is an unfortunate risk that comes with being in a relationship. It’s seen as the ultimate betrayal, a violation of trust. It can get ugly, especially when it’s played out in the public eye.

There are a ton of factors that may or may not go into a person’s decision to stay after the truth comes to light. When I saw these stories, I was instantly intrigued, I couldn’t help but wonder, if these roles were reversed would Kevin Hart or Jay-Z have stayed?
This past November, the Netflix show “She’s Gotta Have It” has been a major topic of discussion amongst men and women everywhere. The 10-episode series is a charming reboot of the 1986 Indie film (same title) written and directed by the legendary Spike Lee. The show’s protagonist is Nola Darling, a self-proclaimed “Sex-Positive, Polyamorous Pansexual”. In the show, Nola juggles being an artist while being preoccupied by four different lovers.

Let’s just say that in the midst of all that, Nola and what (or who) she was doing in her loving bed stirred up quite the conversation. In fact, it rubbed a few people the wrong way. Continue Reading
