Why do we fall so hard for men who aren’t about sh*t? Now when I say “men who aren’t about shit”, I’m not simply referring to annual incomes or a lack of vocational milestones. There are also men who look amazing on paper (and without clothes on) but don’t have an ounce of emotional intelligence—aka aren’t about shit. So…Read More
As the ashy negro sitting next to me sobbed to Whitney Houston’s “Greatest Love Of All”, I questioned every life choice I had made up until that moment. Mainly, my choices that led me to the passenger seat of his musty 4-door sedan. Back in February 2012, after a rough break-up, my best friend bought…Read More
Beans, greens, potatoes, tomatoes, drama, anxiety, shame, guilt… I don’t know about your family dinner menu but for years, mine consisted of the unappetizing shit listed above. Now, I’ll be the first to say that I LOVE my family, however I refuse to let my allegiance to their traditions kill me. What do I…Read More
We’ve all heard the cliché phrase, “ignorance is bliss”, but does that sentiment apply to new romances? In my (extremely biased) opinion…. HELL TO THE YES it does! …and I’ll tell you why. During a recent text conversation with a handsome stranger, after some flirting, an inquisitive banter began. Having been out of the dating game for minute, I’ve…Read More
Have you ever watched a couple walk by and thought to yourself… “DAMMMN, THEY COULD BOTH GET IT”? If so, you’re not alone. We’ve all encountered THAT couple. A duo so sexy that you’d have zero qualms about letting them tag team you. Well, if you’re feeling curious about “guest-starring” in a couple’s bedroom, I’ve come up…Read More
Plies keeps it BEYOND 100 in his song, “F*cking Or What?” , where he explicitly asks his date whether or not they’re having sex. While Plies is notorious for being brutally honest, this song in particular takes the cake. When I heard verse two where he states: “I ain’t tryna waste your time baby, I just ain’t with the…Read More
While laying in my bed, cuddled up to the mound of unfolded laundry at my side, I couldn’t help but wonder; what if this is it? I mean now that I’ve become accustomed to navigating life without a co-pilot, what if this pile of delicates is as close to a warm body as it gets for me before my time is up? What…Read More
If we really want to stand up for feminism, we can start by freeing women of our blindly misogynistic criticisms of everything they do.
Since the beginning of time men have had an invested interest in what women do, how they do it, and ultimately whether or not that’s okay with us.
…Which is completely absurd.
The warped idea that a man’s opinion about a woman should actually matter, transcends sexual orientation. It’s not just the straight guys—gay men are also notorious for perpetuating women’s need to constantly seek male approval…Read More
Now maybe I’m just a jaded pessimist, but I swear: almost every guy who’s given me “butterflies” in my stomach was bad news. Looking back, I’m pretty convinced that the gut feeling I thought was “the butterflies” has been my intuition telling me to abandon ship. So what exactly are “the butterflies”?

DM: A commonly used abbreviation for Direct Message. Dm’s are used to send private messages on social media platforms. “Sliding into” someone’s DM is when you discreetly send them a direct message. When Yo Gotti told us that “it goes down in the DM” I was completely oblivious to the true power of a well-executed DM slide. Whether the opening line was a flirty,…Read More
