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 aware that this make me sounds like a gold digger, but I deserve the best and I need to be with a man that can give me the best. I want to make this work and I do believe he’s my soulmate. I try to help him get deals, and even try to help him find a good paying job but tell me all the time that he got it “handle”. I want to be with him I do, but I can’t stay with a man who isn’t trying to better himself. What should I do? Do I stay and try to make it work and learn how to accept this or do I walk away... Amore what should I do?

What I take from this, it’s time for you to do some deep soul searching. You’re not mature enough for a real relationship if the only thing you can think about is a man pocket. Here you have a good man the man that you so called “prayed for”, and yet you’re looking at his flaws more so than what he can offer you. What women must understand that a perfect man will have flaws. Moreover, he will offer you what you need, and not what you want. A good man will teach you and show you how real love feel. He deserves a woman that will appreciate what he already has to offer. You’re looking for a man to take care of you, and it’s not his job to take care of an able woman. If he’s able to take care of himself without asking you for help then he’s in a good financial place. My advice for you is end the relationship, and work on yourself cause he going to break up with you eventually. The last thing a man need is a woman that doesn’t support him. And while he quiet about how he feels now, one day he will get tired of you trying to change him and he will leave. If he said that he has it handle, then why can't you let him handle it. By offering to help him might make him feel like less of a man, and maybe he just need you to be there more so than to help him right now. Sometimes you have to let a man fall down without helping him get up. Furthermore, for you to look for flaws so early in the relationship shows that you need to mature more. I won’t call you a gold digger cause you’re used to a lifestyle that many men have awarded you with. However, you need to grow up, and learn that you don’t need a man to take care of you. Say what you want but that’s what you’re looking for and until you’ve mature enough to see a good man right in front of you then you need to leave him alone. And go work on you, cause no man is going to take of you.

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…
