The 3 Date Rule

You meet him. You like him. You go on a date with him. The first date was the initial meet and greet, where you met for coffee after work. During that time you set up a second date to have dinner a couple of days later.

It’s the night of the second date and you are having a fabulous time. Your checklist is getting checked-off, because so far he meets your basic requirements: looks, education, personality, charm, and charisma…but in the back of your mind, you have this niggling sensation about a conversation you recently overheard the women in your salon discussing. As you sat in your stylists chair you listened as they volleyed their dating woes and there was a consensus amongst them all that most men had this unspoken rule that if they took you out on three dates, then by the third date they expected you to sleep with them.

You look into his eyes, trying to gauge his thoughts. Does he think like that? Will he expect something on the next date? Should I accept a next date, without discussing this? Or should I just live in the moment and whatever happens, happens? All of those questions are swirling through your mind, but you don’t want to be the first one to broach the subject. After all, you don’t want to look or appear loose. Nor do you want him to think that sex is all that you have on your mind. What to do?

Sadly this scenario plays out every other hour as women and men meet via online dating, or through family and friends. Although eager to get to know each other, women have now been instructed by Steve Harvey and his ‘teachings’ to install a 90-day probation [don’t know why women couldn’t figure this out on their own] period before becoming intimate with a man. However, some women, who have been alone a very longtime feel that 90-days is too harsh, and three days is too soon.

When this happens, I always tell women to be convicted by their principles. If they feel that fundamentally, 3 days is way too soon, then let it be known when and if he makes a move. YES, I know that not all men think like this, but the majority of them do feel as if there is a play for pay.

I say that to say, do not let this unspoken rule that some have to taint your thoughts and views on dating. Rather be mindful that as you order your meal and drinks be sure to only order what you can afford. NO, it doesn’t sound right, but why go out and feel an obligation to ‘put out’ for a $75 meal.

You are only obligated to yourself in having a good time and opening up your friend circle…enjoy!

So Horny...It Hurts!

As usual my discussions stem from random thoughts that I have and from conversations with friends, family, & acquaintances. But we were talking about sex and levels of horniness and one of us spoke up and said, "I'm so hurts!" (Hmmm...I thought about this and came you...)

Have you ever gotten to the point where you are so horny it hurts! Its a physical ache deep in your bones. Every muscle and sinew, every step, stretch, and run, is so physically excrutiating to the point of being unbearable! You know sometimes your eyes cross, you get bumps on your face, and your nerves are completely on edge. You say your are angry and frustrated when in fact all you need is a little hot monkey sex to get you back in order...In situations like that, your body has a tendency to shut down on itself.

As I write this, I wonder how many of us are so horny that it hurts? I honestly feel that dyck and puzzy are a dime a dozen...anyone, and I do mean anyone, regardless o…

Women Are Emotionally Retarded

The topic on women not listening sparked a madddd debate between a friend and I.

I am of the belief that if a woman is interested in a man and that man she is interested in or in lust with doesn't reciprocate her feelings she should move on. She should remove herself from this man and also ensure that he is no longer in her immediate inner circle/core of friends, but rather on the outer fringes of her life. I was told that by my saying this, then I believe that women are emotionally unable to handle rejection and therefore must cast their net out to others hoping that someone else will bite. Rather we (women) should keep this man around as a friend and not involve ourselves with other men, just because the man that the woman is interested in is not interested in her. He went on to liken it to a woman shooting buckshots until she shoots and catches someone.

I went on to state that if women find themselves in this emotional quagmire of a situation with a man whose feelings aren't …
