Things To Do When You Are Single

Just think, have you tried to plan a trip with friends? In January, everyone is gung ho, and by the time the trip comes in June, it's down to 3 people, and they cancel because not enough are going.

Being Dumped Made Me Re-Examine Who I Was

I let slide a lot of things red flagish behavior that I'm ashamed I did.

I turned a blind eye to him getting more comfortable with his baby's mom. I turned a blind eye to the texts that insinuated that more was going on than simple co-parenting.

I even turned a blind eye to many after hour calls to this woman, well after I was asleep.

And even after I confronted him and he showed no remorse, I still was willing to stay with him.

New Abortion Laws Aren't About Giving Babies A Chance At Life

never understood people's need to infringe upon others lives. As long as you aren’t stopping me from living my life and excelling, why would I be concerned to lord over your life? I mean do you have to agree with abortions? Absolutely not! But don't stop others from living their lives. Don't stop other people from doing something that they feel is best for their situation. I think that children are a blessing, which is why I personally wouldn't want to bring them into fucked up situations.

What Makes A Woman Wife Material?

Lesson #2 "A single woman shouldn't travel too much or do too many big lifetime achievements by herself."

Because what else would a man have left to bring to the table if she can do it alone? If she has a house, a big paying job, or traveled too much when she finally encounters a man, what else could they do together?

She has to let a "man be a man." She has already experienced tons of life's significant milestones. Why would she need a man? How could she respect him if she could do for herself what he could do? So, even though I could afford to do so, I pushed aside purchasing my first home. I didn't travel to far and exciting places because I wanted to wait until I found a man. I didn't want to scare him off with my ambition. (How brainwashed was I?)

So I made sure I didn't do too much because I didn't want a man to be intimidated by my thirst for life. Although I suppressed my desires to do it big, I still was living single.

3 Life Lessons I Learned While Dating

Some of us (including myself) are guilty of going on pity dates or dates that we don't want to go on. Or, the offer of free food has been presented to us, so now we have to go.

Then when you go on these dates, you are unimpressed, uninterested, and uninspired. You knew that you should have stayed home and watched Netflix with chilled wine. But noooooo, you had to go out and do something with your life, and now you are stuck listening to him talk about who is stronger; Super Saiyan 4 Goku or Super Saiyan 4 Gohan.

Captain Marvel Kicks Ass With Out The Help Of Romance

Look at the history of female-led action movies. (Well, the lack thereof). The movies tend to have weak storylines, actresses that do not truly embody the character, and oh yes, the male lover that makes them want to fight harder to win the battle. (Obviously, she can't just fight harder because it's the right thing to do.)

It wasn't until Wonder Woman, that we saw an amazing female-led action movie that made every woman cry out in unison "We are strong and we will fuck you up!"

Gal Gadot's Grecian beauty fit the role and embodied what we would think a live version Wonder Woman would be. And of course like most female movies she had a love interest who she mourns until this day.

3 Reasons Why I Like Dating Single Fathers

Treat single fathers like you would treat childless men. What I mean is that you always take into account one's character. We know that there are shitty men with kids. (duh!)

Also, I'm talking about the men who are active in their child's life. Not the "I'll raise you when I see you"dads, but the single fathers who are sharing custody and responsibility with the mother. Which brings me to another point; Peep that relationship with the mother! If he doesn't have a good handle on the situation with the mother of his child, he may not be someone you want to take too seriously.

Many co-parents have great relationships with each other. I know the big blowouts between the bitter parents are what we often witness. That's because those disputes are what makes the big bucks for the media and gets the most likes on social media.
