Dating in Memphis: Blame It on The Alcohol

So, I have multiple dating horror stories but I'll start with the funniest one. Now mind you I was young (like 21), dumb, and stupid when this situation occurred. So, my dumb butt thought it would be a good idea to go on Tinder and look for a potential beau (My first eff up). I matched with this guy we'll call Kevin. Kevin was cute, funny, had a degree, and was in the military. It was bonus that he knew some of my close friends and we went to the same university. We exchanged numbers and talked for a while. He hit me up one night as asked if I wanted to go out with him. I was like "Hell Yeah!" Now I'm old school, I prefer a man to ring my doorbell and shit. He pulls up in my driveway while I'm getting stuff out of my car. He had this really nice souped up Mustang (I have a thing for mustangs shoot me). He gets out of the car but he's still standing by the driver seat. I'm walking towards the passenger door and he tells me to walk to his side and there I see that 1. He has the driver seat leaned up and there's another nigga in the passenger seat. RED FLAG. My dumb ass gets in and he introduces me to this nigga in the passenger seat, we'll call him Bobby. So, Bobby is like "oh you pretty". By that time I have texted all my friends to let them know I might not be coming home that night. We're riding around and we get to this house, some bald-headed girl we'll call her Sarah, walks up to the car and gets in the back seat with me. 
Kevin and Bobby decide we're going to Frida’s. On the way to Frida’s, they're smoking weed. I didn't smoke at the time so I'm just all around annoyed. Kevin keeps asking me about the mustang I owned asking me if I knew how to drive a stick. When we get to Frida’s it was a fucking nightmare. This nigga Kevin tells me he didn't have any money to buy two meals so we could share a margarita and an appetizer. Kevin neglected to tell me that all his fucking homegirls were coming to this damn dinner. It was like 5 extra girls at the dinner and they all had attitudes and kept asking me how I knew Kevin. Kevin told them I was the new and improved girlfriend. HOW SWAY! Kevin, Bobby, and Sarah get white girl wasted at Frida’s. Kevin drunkenly looks at me and throw his cars keys at me and said "You can a drive a stick right, right? Drive us home baby girl!". I was soooo hot but I knew the older two dumbasses didn't know how to drive and I was the only sober one. 
Kevin's Mustang was wayyy newer than mine but a stick is a stick right? He had one more gear than me too. So, I took advantage of it. Once I turned on to the interstate I took off. Kevin started telling me to slow down and to stay in the fourth gear. Too Late! I was in sixth gear fucking his clutch up! I dropped the two extras off and Kevin kept asking if I wanted to spend the night. On the way back to my house he fell asleep so I got about two blocks from my house and threw his car out of gear, which turned it off. I left him on the side of the road with his keys in the ignition and the driver side door wide open. Kevin rountinly tries to reach out to me to make up for our "first date". I told him I'm gay now.

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…
