Amore Advice: Two Great Men Who Should She Choose?

Dear XOReflections, (yes, I also still go by xoreflections for those who will asked)

It's April and I've been talking to and entered the dating/early relationship stage with this guy... He's ambitious, has 3 babies, but on the road to getting his shit together. He's a few years shy of 30, however, I have strong feelings for him as if we could do this thing forever. Sometimes I worry about his full thought of commitment, because he seems "unavailable" in ways I can't put my finger on yet, but our connection can't be denied, he opens up to me more daily almost, and we are conversing and learning about each other in great strengths...

Now...During Venus Retrograde, a guy that showed small interest with no actions, resurfaced from a year ago. We had the conversation about where we (he) went wrong to avoid it happening again (he'd make plans to see me and NEVER fell through). So, we went on a was great...second date within a few days of the first, and the third shortly after. All within two-week span! He's a little older and seems to know what he wants, has two babies and he is not leaving room for me to feel anyone else is on his mind, his family agreeing...I happened to kiss him, but didn’t enjoy it as much. I haven’t enjoyed anyone’s touch or kiss since I’ve been dating guy one, and although guy 2 seems to "have his shit together" I feel stronger for the man I've been dating.
 Should I be concerned about choosing one? Or see how it goes with both?
 Because I still have doubts about Man 1, we haven’t even been on a single date! But as I said, dates aren't required far as monetary, but time outside chilling is appreciated!

Well, problem one is that in your heart you already made up your mind on who you want to be with. It like the door is already close so to speak however, if you already having doubts about the relationship with guy 1 before the relationship even started then you will always have doubts as the relationship grows. And if he is acting unavailable then he might not be ready for a serious relationship, especially since he hasn’t an effort of trying to plan a romantic evening just for the two of you. Because as we get older “chilling” just not going to cut it, it’s time for a sit-down conversation about where the relationship is heading; and to see what he wants and if he is ready for a committed relationship. Because even though you’re feeling for him is strong now, you will start to feel some resentment towards later on for his lack of effort because actions speaks louder then words. And just Because his words are saying that he is ready, doesn't mean his actions will speak the same.

Now, with guy 2 until you sort out your relationship with guy 1 you’re not going to give guy 2 a fair chance. While he gives you a sense of comfort, he gives you the comfort that you want from guy 1; and like you said yourself you haven’t enjoyed another man company since you been dating guy 1. While I think, you should pursue this new growing friendship with guy 2 I also think it best you just leave it alone until you have the conversation with guy 1. He is where your heart lies, and you don’t want to break anyone heart or lead anyone on. Both men are great however, while guy 1 seem like he ready for a relationship he is more focus getting his shit together before he pursues a relationship with you. and with guy 2 he is at a place where he ready to settle down, and to be in a serious relationship with you but he not the guy that you want to be with. You have to open your heart just a little bit more to guy 2 so, you can make the right choice. I understand that you really into guy 1, but you have to get ready for the possibility that he not looking for same as you. Cause men won't tell you how they feel but their actions, will tell you if they ready for a relationship.

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…

My Thoughts on Love Is...

As I always say, when the love is real it not meant for anyone on the outside to understand. I always ask women “what would they do for love?” Some women answer, while some just look at me like I’m crazy. Everyone loves to claim they have a limitation on love. However, as one told me you only have limitation when you haven’t met your match. Now, before I could write this story I had to re-watch this series twice just to make sure I was understanding what I was watching. Therefore, after watching this show I got something to say and it won’t be pretty. My new addiction celebrating black love is Love Is”, which tells the origin story of a modern-day love, before social media came and destroyed well trying to destroy love for everyone. This show has become the topic of discussion more than this season of “Insecure” (I’m still waiting for that wow moment of this season). Love Is_ is set in '90s. And tells the story of two Black creatives who fall for each other quickly. Nuri works as…

What to Do When A Person Ghost You

We all knew this day was coming and now it time I write about it. This Sunday night, was the season finale of “insecure." Now, before I get to the point of the story I must share my thoughts of this whole season. I was looking for that spark this season like season one, and two, but I didn’t receive one until the end. Even the whole Daniel and Issa storyline that was a letdown. When I saw she brought back Lawrence I was hoping that finally they would work it out, but again Lawrence on that bitch ass shit. However, the relationship between Nathan and Issa was the talk on black twitter. While Issa thoughts she finally met a good guy who challenge her, Nathan proved that “the lighter the eyes, the bigger the lies.” While we have to wait until Next Year to see exactly where this relationship will go, Nathan pulled a move that was close to home for many people. It hurt like hell when a person leave you without any warning or reasons. It leave you asking yourself, “What did you do?” We…
