Single Girl Day Out: Get Out Review

Like one of my favorite women ever Wendy Williams, when I write a story I like to give you guys a back story before I get to the story. This past Sunday I was heading to work thinking I had to work, when I get there my boss tell me to go home she need me for Monday morning. So, I was heading home when I was reading down my friends’ timeline about the movie “get out” so instead heading home I went to see this so-called controversial movie. And when I say I have not been entertained by a movie in a long time, this movie kept me at the edge of my seat. I don’t want to spoiled the movie, but it touches some topics that is swept under the rug so to speak.



Kinda crazy that we had a black president, legalized gay marriage and accepted transgender people (some will say force to accept) but people still have a problem with interracial relationships. The movie address that common fear that black people have when it comes to interracial dating, growing up my parents made it very clear to me at an early age that they didn't want me to date outside my race. And as I gotten older I made a decision for myself to stay dating within my race, not because of my parents but because I love black men so much that I don’t see myself with no other race other than my own. But in the movie, it killed me how she tried to make it seem like he was crazy when he told her that her family didn’t like him. Plus, the fact that she didn’t tell her family that he was black beforehand would have been my warning to get the fuck out of there. And I did see posts after the movie of black women, telling black men to leave white women alone (but I doubt this movie will not stop black men from dating white women I'm just saying).


But what I love about this movie was his best friend, (who is true best friend’s goals by the way) rod Williams played by LilRel Howery. His best friend told him from the jump that the whole situation was fishy, but as well all know (well black women know) black men love to found out the hard way. But what I loved is that he knew that something was off, and he kept looking for his friend; and wasn’t going to stop until he found his friend. Even made a fool of himself going to the police station trying to report his friend missing, seeing how his friend went hard to go find him made me want to have a sit down with my few friends; and asked them would they do the same for me. 

But overall the movie was so good, I will be going a 2nd time to see this movie that how good it was to me. But these are one of those movies that black family need to take their children to see, because there are questions that your children will that they need answers too like interracial relationships, racism, hypnosis, and friendship etc. etc. etc. I don’t want to spoil the movie for others, but go support this movie you will enjoy yourself.

The Top Five Worst Women To Be In A Relationship With

Well, I was asked, and I deliver so to speak. Even though I don’t post the letters of questions I receive from women, I still answer back. And I read these letters seeing how women answer their own questions, to why they have relationship problems. I knew if I wrote this article that I would be label as a “pick me” and that not even the case. I’m far from a “pick me” but I have observed certain behavior where I knew why these women were still single. This list is not only for my readers, writing this made me look at some of my actions as well in what areas I need to work on as I continue to grow as a woman. Before I wrote this, I had to ask 5 men, and these were the women they chose who gave them hell. Yes, I’m aware that some of these actions were fueled by the hand of men who let them down and broke their heart. But it's no point to carry that into your next relationship. Like I always say you don’t have to agree with me, but it has to be written. So, here are the top five wors…

When Hurt People Hurt: Nas and Kelis

You can’t fix what you didn’t break. Sometimes the demons we face, are not the person we’ve dated fault. We’ll never know the demons anyone truly face, until they decide if they want to take it out on us. We try to be there and show them something different but soon realize their demons are slowly killing us. As I come to learn a man is his mother image. A man is what his mother make him to be, he may carry out some of his father actions; but his character come from his mother. Like a woman is what her father tell her to be. Whether he speak it with his words or speak it with his actions (by not being in her life), a woman carry her father words with her everywhere she goes and in all of her relationships. That why sometimes when a man is reckless, if his mother understand his actions then no one else opinion of him even matter. Vice versa with a woman. We chose to play doctor but doesn’t stay around to fully cure that person injuries. We just add more cuts, to an already wounded soul…

Dating In Memphis: Top 5 Places To Go On a Date In Memphis

If you’re from Memphis then you know everyone favorite line here is “it nothing to do in Memphis”. Before last year I used to think the same thing. Going to the same hangouts, and eating at the same restaurants then getting on social media crying about how it nothing to do here or Memphis isn’t safe anymore. And of course, everyone favorite line "they shut down all the fun places in Memphis". It wasn’t until one night that I went out, and I had the time of my life at a place I never been before. The crazy part is I drove past this place several times not knowing it was a great place to hang out, and have fun (then the food was good). Since everyone here claim it nothing to do in Memphis, it leads to lack of creativity in the dating department. Well, this is where I step in and try to help. Dating is what keep the relationship alive. No matters how long you been with the person, you still have to date that person to keep that fire burning. The thing is nowhere in this univers…
