Horror Story

So I was working at a law firm and made a trip downstairs to the convenience store located beneath the building. While there, I happened to lock eyes with an attractive, tall, dreadlocked man who was suited and booted for what appeared to be his day at the office. He approached, we exchanged numbers, and he asked me for dinner and drinks the following day.  He seemed cool, but I wanted to be safe, so I chose a popular restaurant for us to meet where there would people that I knew.     The day of our date, I washed my hair, straightened it,...

The Spitter

So I reconnected with a woman I met previously at a non-profit event via social media [Thank God for Facebook…Well in this case, I believe Satan was involved with this woman]. We began talking on the phone and, since everything seemed fine, I invited her on a museum date. Now I’m all for jokes and I absolutely love to laugh, but I know better than to be loud and obnoxious in a museum. This woman, let’s call her The Spitter, was so loud and ignorant in the museum [think loud speaker announcements in grade school] making all types of...

Online Dating 101

Technology has completely changed the way that a lot of us do life, especially in the world of dating. We can literally manage our love lives with the click of a mouse and/or thumbs via online dating. Online dating seems like a no-brainer or that it would be fairly simple, but it can be a little complex. So we’ve come up with a list [yes! the dreaded list] of some tips, tricks, advice, and etc. that we’ve learned along the way. Of course we won’t cover everything and will probably have to create several blog posts on this subject, so just...

Speed Date

So I met this guy online and we began to speak on the phone off and on for a couple of weeks. I had been out of town for work, so there wasn’t an immediate opportunity for us to connect face to face.  Well, I was home this particular week and the guy called to ask what I was doing that evening.  I let him know that I had a meeting when I got off and would be headed home afterwards.  He said he wanted to see me and would be wrapping up with his client [he was a personal trainer] at around 7:30pm, which happened to be around the time I expected...

The Set Up

So this guy that I knew from an online dating site hit me up a year later out of the blue.  We dated for a bit previously, but I didn’t think he was a good fit because he had a Napoleon complex: he was mean to me at times and didn’t know how to talk to me.  I stopped communicating with him at that time and told him that I didn’t think we were compatible. As I said before, he messaged me one year later on a social media site asking to reconnect.  I told him it wasn’t a good idea and declined, but he just kept asking.  He asked me out a good...

1 Bar, 2 Fools

1 Bar, 2 Fools

So I was at the bar with a group of friends when I felt someone squeezing on my side. It caught me totally off guard because I was in the middle of a conversation with one of my homegirls and knew it wasn’t her grabbing me on my love handles.  I turned my chair around to see who touched me and it was some guy who was sitting in the stool right next to me at the bar. Me: Ummmmm…why are you touching me? Can I help you with something? Him: Oh, I just wanted to get your attention to talk to you. Me: My attention? Are you kidding me right now?...

Can’t Get Right

So once I cut a person off, it’s usually for good, but on this particular occasion, I gave some a second chance.  This dude reneged on an invitation to a Lauryn Hill concert [read more HERE] and I didn’t appreciate that not one bit so much so that I completely cut dude off…Blocked him from calling and texting me altogether [Thanks iPhone] Anyway after almost one year of not talking to the guy, he called me on my phone from a different number [his job phone apparently].  I didn’t know who it was at first, but once he said his name, I laughed...

Lil Man

So I had been talking to this guy regularly on the phone and we finally made plans to go on a date. We met at a restaurant near my home and had a ball.  We ate, drank, conversed [the conversation was GREAT!], and danced [they had a live band].  It was a wonderful date! It was time for us to part ways, so he walked me to my car.  He pulled me closely and kissed me.  [OH EM GEE! Fireworks!] The kiss was absolutely amazing and I didn’t want to stop, but eventually pulled back to avoid getting too carried away. As I hugged him goodbye, he said he...

Barbershop

So I exchanged numbers with this guy and, during our initial chat, I learned that he lived about 4 hours away.  [Damn!] We kept in touch in spite of the distance and spoke fairly regularly . He came to town within the following weeks and we had the absolute BEST time.  We went to a number of bars in the city (kind of like a bar crawl) and danced the night away. I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard in my life.  It felt great to just go out and have some good old-fashioned fun….nothing planned or pretentious.  [This dude might be a...
