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…

Trading Places: Why It's Okay To Court a Man

Oh, how time has change. The roles have change. How we date is no longer the same, as it was when our parents were coming up. A few weeks ago, my best friend made a post about "take a man out on a date". Furthermore, all the men agreed (of course) but women were shocked that I agreed as well. Too many women are hesitant to ask guys on dates, or to give guys an inkling of their interest in them. And it's upsetting and limiting to both us and to the dudes who want to date us. Asking a man out or taking him out for dinner don’t make you any less of a woman. However, trying to stick to your old school standards will leave you single and missing out on your soul mate.
If my man earned it then I can take my man out on a date. Why not? How do we know at time that we even earned a date? Yeah, I went there is nothing wrong with footing the bill every once in a while, in a relationship. If the relationship 50/50, and you love that person then you can pay for your man dinner every o…

What Lawrence & Issa Taught Us About Closure

Well, the season finale of insecure came and this time it didn't end with Lawrence blowing Tasha the bank teller back out. It ended in a sense of peace, and growth between two people. The reason why I love to write about insecure is the fact that it a show made for us. As much as I love blackish, and Scandal I can't identify with those shows. However, I do identify with insecure. Every person on that show speak to phase in our lives that we been through or we're heading to as we speak. But nevertheless, this season finale touch on a topic that I consider "taboo" to many women.

As we know Issa "hoe phase" was Initiated when she learned that Lawrence said that he was done with her. And as I wrote on my previous post Issa learned that having a "hoe phase" isn't what it cracks up to be. However, finally after weeks and months of avoiding the inevitable conversation they finally had the closure they needed to move on (a conversation that I wish …

Amore Advice: Do Your Spouse Have To Make More Than You

Hey Amorè
So, there this guy I'm dating. We've been seeing each other for 8 months now and he is the perfect man. He’s so caring and he make me feel like a queen. When I'm with him, I feel like I'm walking on air he is everything I prayed for in a man. But it one thing that I have an issue with, and it's the fact he doesn’t make enough money. He not broke but he isn't in a good financial place. The men I date usually make 6 to 7 figures, and whenever I needed help they would take care of it for me. However, this is the first time I been with a man who make less than me. He a really good man but it hard when I want to go somewhere really nice and fancy and all he can afford is IHop or Denny' s. He tells me all the time once his business gets off the ground then he will treat me to everything that I deserve. But I don’t know how much longer I can wait for that. Yes, I know we just met but; I feel like if he doesn’t have it now then he won’t ever have it. I’m a…

Can You Teach Me How Hoe: Should Women Have A Hoe Phase..

This Sunday will be one of the saddest day of the year for me. I knew this day was coming, however I wasn’t ready for this day to come. This season of “insecure” has by far been one of the most educational young adult show of the summer. They touch many topics, that usually go untouched on television or not told in the full truth that need to be shared. But the most popular topic on this season was the “hoe phase”. Now, if you watch this whole season you know that Issa was working towards enjoying her new found single title and finally having the “hoe moment” that she was denied of having because she met Lawrence five years earlier. Well, her moment didn’t go exactly like she wanted it to be. In fact, she found herself seeing that having a “hoe moment” isn’t what it cracks up to be. Before the season aired Issa Rae, was on the breakfast club discussing exactly what is a “hoe phase”. Growing up, trying to learn about boys was never an easy task for me. My parents taught us at a very ea…

What Happen To Dating: Why Simple Dates Are Earned

This topic is about to get me in some trouble. However, it's time that I bring this topic to light. So, lately I been seeing these pictures float around on social media well mostly Facebook about what make the perfect date. Now, let me be clear you can't really define what make a perfect date. For me the best dates, has always been the unexpected date. Where you both just spending so much time together that you don't realize y'all are on a date. I went on one this weekend, and it was the best date I had in a long time. 
The point is we were enjoying each other company's so much that we just didn’t care how we spent our time together. Now, a few weeks back I made a comment on one of my friend Facebook page. She had just posted a picture on how "simple dates make the best date". Moreover, in this picture it showed a couple eating Chinese Foods and watching Netflix. I made a comment saying this is a 'dream date' for me with the right guy, right after …
