Female Proposals – Are They Ever a Good Idea?

With holiday the holiday season finally over, I’m sure there are plenty of new engagements as well. Being the hopeless romantic that I am, I always love seeing the different types of proposals people come up with to surprise their partners. That being said, I can’t help but feel a little uncomfortable whenever I see a woman getting down on one knee to propose to a man.

Love Games – Is There a Cheating Double Standard?

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. Last year, it was Kevin Hart cheating on his pregnant wife, Eniko; and Jay-Z finally coming clean about cheating on Beyonce’. I think that it’s great these couples seemed to be committed to working on their marriages, especially through something like infidelity. Because let’s face it, being cheated on is not fun!

Just speaking from experience, I’d be happy if I never feel that type of hurt again. Of course, what one couple goes through is not as easy as black and white. 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?

The Ex Files…

In the world of dating, sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs to meet the one you simply can’t live without. But have you ever stopped and wondered if you’ve missed out on something?

Do you pounce on the opportunity to give things another try, or do you keep your distance? When it comes to rekindling things with an ex, it is ever a good idea?

The Girlfriend Code…

A few weeks ago, I posed a question on my Facebook about women that say they don’t get along with other women. Then like fate, my sister from another mister (in my mind at least) Issa Rae tweeted something along the lines of – “I feel sorry or women who don’t have female friends.” Quite honestly, I couldn’t agree more. There’s something about having a connection with other women that can’t be replaced by relationships with men. And if you ask me – in this cold ass world, a woman needs her girlfriend(s)!

The Games We Play …

I like to think of myself as a hopeless romantic. I love…love. I gravitate towards stories that tug at my heart-strings and I live for a happy ending. I guess that’s why I chose to write my romance novel Dilemmas Of a Damsel in my spare time. That’s not to say that my own personal experiences were all rainbows and roses – because that simply is not possible. But going through heartache helped me learn some hard lessons about myself and what I truly wanted.

Regardless of it all, I wouldn’t change a thing because it made me who I am today, and I think I’m pretty awesome (wink). That being said, I know some people who seem to have no luck as far as dating, and falling in love is concerned. Also, I know how easy it can be to feel like the cards are stacked against you when it comes to meeting someone who is actually worth your time. After a while, exhaustion sets in and you find yourself asking, “Why is dating so damn hard?”
