Over a year ago I wrote an article where I interviewed 6 men who had cheated on their significant other, and asked their “real” reasons for doing so.
To my surprise, that article got a ton of feedback. I wouldn’t exactly consider that article a hard hitting “high-brow” piece of writing, however, I did always plan to write a similar article with gender reversal and ask women the same questions.

I didn’t look like myself. I was ashamed of my appearance.
I knew then something about this shit has to change – I cannot keep this up. Continue reading “How I Almost Committed Suicide Using Stress As My Weapon Of Choice”
1. She’s more resilient than you can fathom, which means she won’t put up with your bullshit for too long. People who have been through hell know that they are capable of moving on.
2. If she seems like she’s over-analyzing what you say, it’s because in the past, those offhand comments were warning signs…
After my divorce, it took three years for some of the smoke to clear enough for me to see my way into a first date.
I know this sounds like a cliche – but I met her at a nightclub.
She was a gorgeous lady that was a dead ringer for Yolanda Adams. I’ll refer to her as “A” in this post. “A” was sweet, understanding, ambitious, loving, and, unfortunately, the rebound girl.
Rebound girls face a stacked deck. “A” faced a doubled stack deck. Continue reading “The Rebound Girl That Went Hard In The Paint”
