He’s A Bad Kisser

Too much saliva? Open mouth kisses that reach your nose? OK. Bad kisses can be pretty bad. Luckily, kissing is a teachable skill. If you love everything else about him, sit him down for a little kissing school with a lot of positive reinforcement. Not only will your relationship heat up, but you’ll be dating your own custom-made kisser.

Did Chris Brown Take Karrueche’s Friend To St. Tropez After They Broke Up?

Looks like Chris Brown and Karrueche are on yet another break…and after she held him down during his recent incarceration. Shame.

We knew things were on a downward spiral when Chris was out here liking a Photoshopped picture of him and Rihanna in bed together.  While this may seem minor to some, we all know by now that these type of social media behaviors are not by chance. We all recall the days when Chris unfollowed Rihanna or vice versa and the very next day we’d learn that the two were no longer dating.

And apparently, an Instagram like means quite a bit.

Anyway, rumor has it that when Karrueche found out Chris was liking pictures of him and his ex together, she naturally wasn’t too happy about it. Particularly because he made a mini documentary professing his love to two different women. But according to TMZ, Rihanna is only a small part of the problem. A source told TMZ that Karrueche thinks Chris is behaving immaturely, acting like a child spending more time partying than he is making music.

And from the looks of it, it doesn’t seem like Chris is taking their breakup all that hard. Instead, he posted a couple of tweets about taking relationship advice from the wrong people and the very trite and degrading “these hoes ain’t loyal” line.

He tweeted: “Be careful who u take relationship advice from. Especially if they are single. They’re single for a reason! Lol #lonelyfaceass.” 

And then: “These hoes ain’t loyal but my fans damn sure are!” 


It didn’t stop with the tweets, Chris went to St. Tropez. And to add insult to injury, he took one of Karrueche’s friends along with him. And of course the two were photographed together both on Chris’ personal Instagram and by the paparazzi.

Exhibit A: (She’s the girl with the dark hair, also seen with Karrueche in the picture below.)

Karrueche hasn’t exactly confirmed a split but she did post this subliminal picture on Instagram, seemingly directed at Chris.

Sometimes it really is hard to tell who celebrities are referencing with these random memes. But considering how Chris’ comb over conk was all over the internet, this one seems like it’s all about Breezy.

Either way what do you think? Is this it for Chris and Karrueche or is this just another chapter in their relationship tome?

Is He Trying To Tell You That He’s Secretly Unhappy?

Men speak another language. And sometimes they don’t say anything at all. He might not have the courage to tell you out loud, but unhappy partners give off plenty of signs that they’re done. Pay attention to the clues and you won’t get blindsided by the end of your relationship.

The 6 Wackiest Break Up Lines We’ve All Heard

From YourTango

We’ve all heard them and, most likely, we’ve all used them: the lame, not-at-all creative, not necessarily believable breakup excuses. They are cliché, catchphrase, and so common they deserve a place in the dictionary…. or the trash can. They may be all these things, but they are also here to stay.

But, that’s not even the most annoying part. The worst thing about lame breakup excuses is that they are rarely honest: if someone is breaking up with you, you want to know why, and you deserve to know why. What you don’t want is someone with an excuse that reads like it’s written on a teleprompter. “I (insert name here) am just not ready for all this…” And Blah, Blah, Blah.

That is, of course, the bad news. The good news is that lame breakup excuses provide us with, at the very least, blog material. We can poke fun at them, and poke fun at them we will. So, I give you some of dating’s dumbest, lamest, and corniest breakup excuses:

“It’s not you, it’s me”
Ah, the “it’s not you, it’s me” excuse. An oldie, but not a goodie. The lamest thing about this excuse is that it is a bold faced lie. The person who is using it is really saying, “It’s you, I’m awesome.” If it really wasn’t you, they wouldn’t be initiating a breakup to begin with.

“I’m not ready for commitment”
Taken straight from the “How to Waste Someone’s Time Handbook” comes the commitment excuse. Milli Vanilli blamed it on the rain, and the people using this excuse are blaming it on fear of obligation. What do they have in common? They are both full of crap (yet, in the spirit of full disclosure, I must confess that I still have a Milli Vanilli tape…and yes, I listen to it). People who say they are not ready to commit really mean that they are not ready to commit with you. If they weren’t ready to commit with anyone, then why would they be dating in the first place? An exception to this may be the people who insist, from the start, that they aren’t looking for anything serious. They may genuinely run from commitment like Kanye West runs toward a mirror.

If you’re ever wondering what’s going on with Chris Brown on the relationship front, all you need do is find out who he is and isn’t following on Twitter. As dumb as that sounds, in the past, it’s been an insanely accurate depiction of his relationship status with the infamous love triangle members, Brown, Karrueche and Rihanna.

And today, it looks like Karruche Tran is on the chopping block…again. Not only did Chris Brown and Karrueche stop following each other, Chris also tweeted these cryptic messages:


Umm…yeah I don’t exactly get it either. But according to the, “Hamisheh asegh” is Persian for “perpetual lover.” And we don’t know if this is related, but it’s also a nice, little melodic song. 


Who knows. Right now, it’s a bit too early to tell; but we’re sure with Chris’ penchant for the dramatics, we’ll know what’s up one way or another.

Chris and Karrueche are supposed to be hosting a Halloween event together in Las Vegas, let’s see if they show up for that.

Should I Sleep With Someone Else While On A Relationship Break?

From Single Black Male 

Not too long ago I’m on the bus with one of my friends. We caught up on a bunch of things: we spoke about work, Grand Theft Auto (goes without saying) and women. This somehow leads us to what I consider a great debate.

I love to have my thoughts challenged, so in turn this post is written to challenge all our thoughts. The debate my friend and I were having dealt with whether or not you could sleep with people while single. As simple as that may sound, there is a twist. You see there’s an idea that we all have where someone may break up with you… but they didn’t really break up with you. I’m sure we’re all familiar with “breaks” in relationships. I’m personally not big on them; although, in some cases I guess they’re necessary.

Here is my very simple and straight forward opinion.

If you are in a relationship and you all legitimately break up, I deem you single. Whether or not you get back with someone in the future is irrelevant. If you want to explore some options during your single period, as far as I’m concerned, it’s right by the book. In truth, there’s really no book, but you know what I mean. My friends usually say I’d get them in trouble with my views. I just operate with the idea of facts. The facts in this scenario are I’m not cheating, and I was good to you while I was with you. Those are unequivocal facts. Whether or not you tell someone after the fact is on you.

My friend felt different and just to clarify, it is a guy. His take on this might be refreshing to some. He really thinks if you think you’ll eventually get back with someone, then it’s wrong to deal with someone else. He asked “what if a girl did her on a break with you?” I by no means said you won’t be upset if the roles were reversed. I also didn’t say that someone wouldn’t like the fact that you may have been with someone on a “break.” But really, what could you say? You would have to tell me what rule was exactly violated.

The essence of what my friend was harping on was emotions that are involved in these situations. If you ask me, emotions can be quite independent from what you do.
