Exactly. I used one after I had a child but it was to help with my stomach going down back to its normal size, not to change my waist. What also factored into my "SnapBack" was diet, exercising and breast feeding.

1 week, 1 day ago on Corsets and Waist Training…So It’s Really a Thing?

Reply

I honestly don't believe that a corset will give you a shape your body is not designed to have. If an hourglass figure is not in your genes, a corset will not help. What might help are surgical enhancement/injections (ie Brest implants and butt injections) to give the appearance of an hourglass shape. Also that picture in the link above of the woman with the distorted abs: don't know for sure but she may have had a child/children which often causes the linea alba to stretch like that. Doubt it was the result of a corset.

Chris, I think your idea to switch it up as far as men being the pursuer and the woman being pursued is a great idea. Quality BW need to know that they are desired by decent, high caliber men. What better way to do it than to make the woman the center of attention.

I'm my opinion, the word "sexy" should be reserved for partners and spouses. Not random nobody's on the street.

3 weeks, 4 days ago on Time to Dispel “Black Women at the Bottom of the Barrel” Nonsense!

The thing is, why would we even believe that bottom of the barrel nonsense? It's a statement meant to make bw feel bad about themselves and a statement used to keep men from approaching and to keep bw thinking that no matter what positive things they do, they will be the last chosen. I don't care how many times someone may say it, I would NEVER believe that load of bull and it is saddening that bw would even let it come out of their mouths, or stick in their brain. As a general statement, if you think you are at the bottom then you are. Meanwhile for me, I'm climbing life's mountain. It isn't always easy but when I get to the top, I'll be able to look at all I've accomplished.

That lipstick looks gorgeous on you. Did you have to use a lip liner? I'm not a fan of applying lip liner so I tend to avoid shades of lipstick where I have to do so. BTW, I have the exact same Stila eyeshadow palette and night sky is one of my favorites when I want to wear blue eyeshadow at work and not look like I'm going to the club.

Being that the writer is damaged, has low self-confidence and has issues with low self-esteem, she would use a negative word such as "mediocre" instead of "average" to describe anything.

Reply

The mockers were bullies. Plain and simple. I would say that an apology isn't required however it isn't a bad gesture either. Case in point: my first two years of college I had a huge crush on a baseball player at my school. He was a very nice guy but he kept using the excuse of being too busy with school to hang out with me or he kept saying he would but then wouldn't. One day I was having breakfast by myself in the cafeteria in the same area he and his team were eating. When I got up to leave his teammates were making fun of me asking him out and they were laughing. I felt humiliated. He didn't say anything. After that I thought his teammates were buttholes but I thought he was an even BIGGER one for not being honest with me. He said hello to me a couple of days later but I already had the "whatever" mentality about him. I would have had more respect for him had he at least apologized for allowing his teammates to humiliate me and for not being honest. Don't get me wrong, I remember how cute, smart and talented he was. I also remember him being passive, which, to me, overshadowed everything else.

1 month, 1 week ago on Zara: Asian Men, Black Women…So Undesirable, We Don’t Even Want Each Other

Where was "Jon" when I was in high school? Lol. During my high school years, Asian guys were included as guys I was googly eyes over. I wasn't shy about letting them know either. I didn't give a crap about what other people thought because I was getting myself along in life. What I will say is that peer pressure in high school can be greater than the need to do your "own" thing. Zara, it's unfortunate that you and Jon didn't get the opportunity to hang out because of those immature nuckleheads. And at the same time, the older you get the wiser you become, at least for most people.
