Reply

I'm from the east coast. My ex broke up with me while I was in one of the swirling capitals of the US (SoCal). The week before I was leaving to return home, I met a nice guy. We talked and finally went out on Fri and met his friends on Sat. Irrelevant but I'm the first BW he's been with. We exchange numbers and social media networks.
How do I stay in touch without being overbearing/clingy? I'm not sure if I should be expecting anything more since we live so far apart. Just looking for advice on how to proceed.

I remember when my roommate (a WW) told me that WM would only be interested in me for just sex. After I picked up my jaw from the ground, I told her straight. 

I've met guys that seem like they just want sex...but that seems just common in the 20-30 age range.  Not interested.

I've been living in SoCal in a very wealthy area for  3 months now...I'm the only black person or black woman here 9 times out of 10.  I think I've been learning pretty fast when a guy is interested in me. I've also watched how my white acquaintances flirt with other WM. It works :)  

Anyway, I was generally clueless before...

No matter what race you are interested in, vet your men!

Disneyland. Disneyworld....theme parks in general seem like a waste of money to me. Give me that money for a plane ticket and some real adventure.

There are two covers...one with the women AND one with the men.

Essence is a magazine that targets black people.  Explains the all black ensemble on the cover. 

Anyway, black people/celebs are frequently left off of the covers.  We probably get one or two token black people on the list of upcoming actress/actors every few years. Hello!? Vanity Fair New Hollywood mags, anyone?

I wonder what the article says...Maybe black girls at the time were starting to wear more makeup and do their hair more...investing in a fashion...thus becoming "prettier".

I don't know.  I would have to read the article.

I think it's strange when people give praise to white people who sound "black".  Like people are just gobsmacked when they see a little white girl sing Whitney Houston on talent shows. LOL

Advice?

Dating a Rainbeau and he thinks my waist length hair is real.  I wear my hair like Solange...to give a hint.  How do I go about telling him that my marley twists aren't real and my real hair is about 5 inches...and in a fro.

@Oaktown Paul  @Bellatrix79  Thanks Oaktown Paul. I think I'll see him tomorrow. I'll say hi and see where it goes.  I don't think he is looking for a relationship...which is fine because I'm graduating and prepping for graduate school.


Should I bring up the 12 AM text or just act like nothing happened?

@Oaktown Paul  Well, a week before my birthday, he texted me at 12 AM asking to hang out the following week....after a month of not talking to me since I told him how I felt. SMDH. I told him no because I had plans with my friends for my bday weekend.  That was nearly a month ago and he hasn't texted me since.  I do see him in school since he didn't transfer and have said hi to him.

@kia LOL.  Most AA have white in them.  
French is a nationality.  
In addition, I need to see the receipt of anyone claiming NA blood.  If you watched the H.L. Gates documentary, a small percentage of AA have NA blood.  It was most likely a dark haired white person with some strong features.

Wow. What kind of job does the couple have? Or what kind of family did they originate from? I just watched the video of them introducing their daughter...and the carriage the baby was in looked stunning.

I know I sound shallow, but I just had to put it out there.  The wedding is STUNNING!

Best wishes to the lovely couple.

Bless her.  


I hope she finds solace in her situation.   I would love for her to dump this man with 4 kids (One is a nephew) under his belt.  


I wish her the best.  I know she was a "mean girl" through a big portion of her life...I think she is still healing from something.  She needs to believe that she deserves better...if she doesn't think that already.

Nice advice Christelyn.  I've definitely have this problem.  It feels so weird/strange when guys pull out my chair, hold the door open, offer to carry my books, and pay for me.  I'm so used to "If I want it done right, I better do it myself". 


 However, I'm working  on changing my ways really hard.  Since I express myself with clothes (It's like I change personalities!), for me, when I were something feminine,  I act more feminine.  I just need to transfer that feminine energy when I wear combat boots and all black. haha
