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 I made that comment I had men from her Facebook page trying to add me and also trying to get in my Dm's as well. All under the guideline that I would be ok with this as the first date.

See, a simple date does make the most amazing dates but men of today seem to forgotten that simple dates are earned. It saddens me how this generation of men refused to take a woman out on a date or even try to plan a date. Always asking women can they "see you or come over”, but doesn't take the proper measurement to see you. It like men don't seem to understand that calling us after 10 p.m. talking about he come over to see me is NOT A DATE! You don't have to spend a load of cash to take a woman out on a nice date. A great date can actually be free, and doesn't cost a dime but your time. Furthermore, you can't think you don't have to show a woman a little bit of chivalry either (if you trying to get your foot in the door you have to show her that you're worth it). Simple dates are when you've been in a relationship for a great amount of time, or you been together for years. You can't expect us to accept on the first date that we’re going to 'burger king' and chilling by the riverside drive and think as women we would be ok with this (but if there are women out there who cool with this then hey more power to you). 

Like I said earlier you can't really define what make a great date. However, fellas at least put in the effort the plan a date. The thing is you can actually get away with taking a woman on a simple date if you take the time to plan it out right. What get you in trouble is when, you don't make the effort to plan anything at all. Putting in effort is what most women want from a man. Show us that you really want to get to know us, and a woman will appreciate you for a long time to come. Now, while men are to blame women are also to blame as well for this topic (now you know I'm a double shooter). You can't post pictures claiming that you want the simple things, and are willing to on a simple date then get mad when he doesn't ball out on you on the first date. If you're dating a guy from your social media page and he doesn't know you outside your social media then what you post is the only way he will really “know” you. Don't lie just to get your foot in the door with the guy and get let down by the guy in the end. If you start off the possible relationship with a lie then, the whole relationship will be nothing but a huge lie. However, women don't be so focus on the price of the date that you don't realize when a good man is right front of you. But what do I know, I'm just hear to drop some knowledge on my journey of self.

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…
