Jumping the broom!

  • 7:27 am Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014 by Wise Diva

I had a wonderful time attending my cousin’s wedding this weekend. When you go watch a couple who genuinely love one another get married, it reminds you of true love. Also, for what it’s worth, knowing that people still want to marry is reassuring!

Single life is awesome and fun (mostly) but when you meet someone you can’t live without, jumping the broom seems like the most natural thing to do. For all the reasons people site to stay single, you could counter with
valid reasons that marriage is good for you.

I think our perception of [More]

Dating: Delete!

  • 4:58 am Friday, August 29th, 2014 by Wise Diva

Delete. Delete. Delete. I spent a copious amount of time deleting text messages from an attempted romance. If I could delete the entire memory of the guy from my brain as I did my phone memory, I’d be GOLDEN. Sometimes people turn out to be a colossal waste of time. It happens!

I always like to say that I don’t have regrets but this one I regret. I regret meeting, liking, talking, kissing, this guy. I legit wish I never met him and that rarely happens. He brought a whole bunch of drama to [More]

Pet peeves? Speak up

  • 7:05 am Thursday, August 28th, 2014 by Wise Diva

You know the first couple of months of a relationship are so sweet and sexy? It really is the fun part! Well, eventually you get to that comfortable stage and things become more routine. This is also when you start to get on each other’s nerves!

My friend Harold is seeing someone who talks way too much at times. I guess it didn’t bother him in the beginning (before sex) and now he says it drives him crazy. I’m sure she has pet peeves that she could name about him but sometimes you just want the [More]

Relationships: Not a competition

  • 4:43 am Wednesday, August 27th, 2014 by Wise Diva

One of our readers has asked for advice about her new relationship. She has noticed that her guy frequently tries to “one up” her. It started out light hearted and fun competition. After the friendly banter turned to him making snide remarks, she started to think he was serious.

She wondered if he is the type that always has to be on top. Winning is so important to him and when he doesn’t win, he loses his cool. Is that a red flag? Have you ever met someone who is super competitive about everything? Do [More]

Are friends keeping you single?

  • 6:54 am Tuesday, August 26th, 2014 by Wise Diva

My friend Victor thinks he would still be with his ex-girlfriend if her friends had not interfered. There were many times when they planted seeds of doubt and made her second guess him. He believes those outside influences contributed to their problems.

This made me think about how some singles like to be single at the same time. When one gets in a relationship, the others may not always be happy for them. Some actively try to sabotage things! Obviously this is not what I call friendship. Is it possible friends are the reason some [More]

Relationships: Who am I to you?

  • 7:20 am Monday, August 25th, 2014 by Wise Diva

This weekend was stressful for one couple. After the guys failed to introduce his woman as his girlfriend at a social event, things got intense. She could not understand how someone she spends all her free time with, cooks for, and treats like a King, doesn’t want to label her as The Girlfriend.

For his part, he doesn’t understand why she needs the title. They are always together and he is happy with her. Why can’t that be enough for her? This is a common issue when you have two people with different ideas about [More]

Relationships: Are you too comfortable?

  • 7:02 am Friday, August 22nd, 2014 by Wise Diva

You know how a couple starts to feel comfortable around one another and drop the pretense? This can be a great thing, but some people take it too far. Once the mystery is all but gone and you let it all hang out, things can become a little stale and boring.

This is what one do our readers is going through now. Six months into the relationship and his woman is wearing head scarves and tshirts to bed. The effort to be sexy and spontaneous for him is missing. What should you do if your partner starts to [More]

When you have two options

  • 7:17 am Thursday, August 21st, 2014 by Wise Diva

The dating dilemma that most of us rarely experience: picking between two people. The first time I had to decide between two great guys, it came down to compatibility. My friend Alex is trying to determine who to pursue based on substance and sex.

The two women both are attractive, but one is a little more sophisticated and smart. They have only kissed. The other lady is someone from his past and they have a sexual history. He knows they have chemistry but is that enough?

Have you ever had a hard time choosing who [More]

Size matters?

  • 6:22 am Wednesday, August 20th, 2014 by Wise Diva

So I have been a dating blogger for about 100 years and this is a true first, people: A guy told me his date sort of demanded to see his package. YES that package. Apparently, size queens are becoming more direct! She wanted to know what to expect before things went any further with them. He didn’t comply with her request and she thinks it was because he feared reaction.

I admire her courage but I am disappointed that she believes size is that important. Obviously, people don’t want to end up with a partner who [More]

How do you dump someone?

  • 7:45 am Tuesday, August 19th, 2014 by Wise Diva

Have you ever dated someone and start to lose interest? Since there is not a relationship that has to end, you wonder what to really say? It can be tricky, especially when you would be interested in a friendship. Is there a way to let someone down easy and still remain friends with them?

My friend Chris said he realized that he isn’t interested in someone he met and is dating casually. He wants to pursue someone else but thinks he could be cool friends with the her. I think it is unfair to expect friendship [More]
