An Atlanta dating scene blog, as only our Wise Diva can describe it

Ever worry about dating karma?

  • 7:32 am Friday, October 24th, 2014 by Wise Diva

I was trying to cheer my buddy up because he just broke up with someone. It had been a messy break up after he caught her cheating on him with some married guy from her job. My friend thought she was the one and even had me scouting jewelry stores.

I felt bad for him and I tried to steer clear of the topic of karma. My friend broke a lot of hearts in his dating career. One heart break was caused when he cheated on his girlfriend. I am not saying he deserved what he is [More]

Does love make us crazy?

  • 7:34 am Monday, October 20th, 2014 by Wise Diva

When you find yourself stuck in the chimney of your ex-boyfriend’s house, you have to wonder how you got there. Not literally, of course, but it is symbolic! Ms. Figueroa from California probably thought she was doing what women in love do. Her ration and logic took a vacation and left her with desperate and unreasonable.

Let’s face it, love and infatuation can make you do stupid things. You ever ride around your man or woman’s house looking for strange cars? Congrats, you did something stupid for love. Have you looked up pictures of [More]

Reality check: Women burp!

  • 7:47 am Friday, October 17th, 2014 by Wise Diva

I know what Beyonce sings, but not everyone wakes up flawless. Mere mortals are subject to having displays of human behavior all the time. The reason women love empowerment songs like this is because affirmation is good to hear! The images we see of photoshopped models and retouched photos everyday can make it tough to remember to love ourselves as we are.

Even in dating, women try to keep up some unrealistic facade that they don’t burp, fart, or go to the bathroom. I know many women who go to extreme lengths to conceal their normal body functions. [More]

Is snooping necessary?

  • 6:41 am Wednesday, October 15th, 2014 by Wise Diva

I promised myself that if I ever felt the need to snoop on my man, I would just end the relationship. How could I ever justify staying with someone I did not trust? I have people call me naive and tell me you have to check up on your mate sometimes. Do you agree?

There are some people who regularly check the text messages, emails, phone pictures of their significant other. They believe that it would tell them something is going on or prove that nothing is. I think it can be misleading, though. People [More]

Do you have to be a perfect match?

  • 5:00 am Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 by Wise Diva

A young lady wrote in wanting to know if she should be worried that she does not have much in common with her new guy. Sara is 5 years younger, was raised in the south, and is a party girl. Her man is older, from the Midwest, and is a devout Christian.

My first question to her was, “Uh where did you two kids even meet!?” She said a Braves game. A friend of hers had great seats through work and he was sitting behind her [Sidebar: get thee to a sporting event ladies, especially when [More]

Dating for cash?

  • 5:50 am Monday, September 29th, 2014 by Wise Diva

I watched Lisa Ling’s new series on CNN, “This is Life” last night. The premiere episode was about Sugar Daddy/Sugar Baby dating dynamic. The term alone makes my skin crawl but I wanted to hear about the experiences people shared.

There was a 69 year old man from Atlanta who was seeing a 32 year old woman. What surprised me is that they genuinely liked each other’s company. Their relationship had financial perks but there was no sexual intimacy. The woman talked of how much he has taught her about business and life in general. [More]

What if all their friends cheat?

  • 8:15 am Friday, September 26th, 2014 by Wise Diva

I think it is good to meet the friends of the people you are dating. It can allow you to see them in their element, for one. It also reveals who they consider their inner circle. Although you can learn a lot of good information, there are times when you see or hear something alarming.

Anna met her boyfriends entire crew and learned they all cheat on their wives. Literally all of his closest friends have extra curricular activities that their wives/girlfriends don’t know about. Anna said her man mentioned it sort of casually like he was cool [More]

Relationship refresh?

  • 6:00 am Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014 by Wise Diva

Single people aren’t the only ones that get bored easily. People in relationships often feel the need to refresh the spark when things get dull. It is very easy to fall into a couple routine. You go the same places and do the same thing over and over. What do you so to mix it up?

One of our readers wants to spice things up, but he worries that his girlfriend will become insecure when he broaches the topic. He isn’t bored being with her, it’s just their normal routine that makes him want to switch it [More]

Dating: Picked the wrong one?

  • 7:22 am Monday, September 22nd, 2014 by Wise Diva

Have you ever invested a lot of time and effort in someone only to find out they are a raging jerk? Even when you take your time and pay attention to red flags, things can go downhill. It’s what makes dating about taking risks.

The fact is that taking calculated risks can still end up with the wrong one. I’ve seen people stick it out anyway, though! They don’t want to admit that they invested in the wrong one. Why is that? This is why I believe some single people are dating for the wrong [More]

That’s not boring, that’s love

  • 7:30 am Thursday, September 18th, 2014 by Wise Diva

When I hear someone whine about things being too boring in their relationship, I suggest they go rob a bank with their partner. If excitement is what you seek in a romantic relationship, what does that really mean? When you reach a certain maturity level, you don’t want drama and too much excitement. You want peace and passion!

I think some people get into a healthy relationship and don’t know how to handle it. They start manufacturing issues and drama because they fear becoming “boring and dull” in a relationship. Have you ever met someone who constantly talk about [More]
