The wait is over ladies. We promised you an eligible, attractive bachelor and here he is: Eyan Edwards, a New Yorker by way of St. Croix. We don’t want to speak for Eyan so we suggest you play the video above and let the juiciness speak for itself. And if you’re interested in getting to know this man a little more, drop him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
MORE MAN OF THE MOMENT
Calling: Madame Noire Man of the Moment
Our second Man of the Moment is here and, honestly, we can’t tell you what we love most about St. Croix native Eyan Edwards. From his gorgeous smile to his sculpted body — which you’ll get to see more of Thursday — not to mention his charisma, we knew immediately why Eyan had to be a Madame Noire Man of the Moment.
Yesterday, the model stopped by our office and chatted with us about his career as well as what he’s looking for in a woman and here’s a bit of what he had to say:
“I love women, I love the company of women. I think women balance out the energy of me being a man. I like to communicate with Women and get the more intuitive perspective on things. So I genuinely like the company of women.
When it comes to my relationship style and the kind of women I choose or the kind of woman I will choose in the future, it is more so one that I can connect with on a mental level. I think that’s the most important thing to me. I think looks fade. You know obviously I want you to feel confident and whatnot for yourself but looks aren’t the only thing that I’m interested in. I’m interested in someone that I can grow with mentally.”
Check back Thursday for Eyan’s video so you can get to know him — and his body (hint!) a little better.

After a breakup it can be really hard to move on to someone new. With all of the emotions and memories that come with a relationship, it’s not easy letting them go. When a relationship ends, it’s likely that you’ll stay single for a while, but after some time, you’ll find yourself wanting to hit up the dating scene again. Before you make your move, here are 15 signs that you’re ready to start dating again.
You’re confident in yourself again
When a relationship ends, some of your self-confidence and self-esteem can go down with it. If you’re feeling like your old self again — that woman who can conquer and do anything — you’re definitely ready to take the dating world by storm. Lacking confidence can make dating a lot harder and nerve-wracking than it really needs to be. Don’t date until your self-confidence is back to normal.
It doesn’t matter how much of a gentleman he has been up until that point: if a man you’re getting to know at a bar, on a date, or online says any of these lines, run — before he breaks your heart, or gives you the overwhelming urge to slap him.
All the single ladies on Valentine’s Day, Shonda Rhimes says chill, it’s not that bad.
A fan made the mistake and opened a can of whoop a** when she asked if the “Scandal” creator has any advice for single women moping on the commercial love day.
“Here is what I say to all the ladies who are alone on Valentines Day: please do not ever use these words ‘ladies who are alone on Valentine’s Day’ together in a sentence ever again. Ever. Again,” Shonda started.
See what else she had to say on EurWeb.com.
Valentine’s Day, V-Day, Doomsday, D-Day – the one time of year where singles across the world are reminded of just how single they are. Commercialism and society put so much pressure on people regarding this holiday. What many fail to address is that although Valentine’s Day is commonly associated with a romantic kind of love, it isn’t the only form of love. So, before you get all down on yourself for not having a significant other to spend the day with this year, start throwing yourself a pity party or even linking up with a random person all for the sake of not being alone, check out nine ways to spread love this Valentine’s Day that will not only leave you feeling fantastic, but will help someone else as well.
Q: Hi! I’m 23 years old, from New York, and I’ve never been in a serious relationship. How can I improve my dating life? It is really hard for me to meet any guy who’ll actually like me. Can you give me some suggestions? Being single sucks for real, especially if you are a person who stays inside the house during weekends.

Dear Single Sistas,
I am writing this letter to all of my Single Sistas who rung in the New Year as a single mother, divorcee, widow, or a simply fabulous unattached single woman. I am writing this letter to continue to encourage you on this journey of greatness we call the single life. This letter is not the “new year, new you” speech that we often hear at the beginning of a New Year that’s supposed to motivate us to change things in our lives, but this letter is designed to encourage you to embrace or continue embracing the single life, and not to spend a majority of this year seeking a man and relationship. I encourage you to continue to embrace being single because it is a fabulous journey and way of life that we often take for granted. How do we often take this time for granted? By spending a majority of the time looking for a man and a relationship of course. What we as single women often fail to realize is that our time as single women is not purposed for us to spend most of it looking for a relationship. It has a distinct purpose for our lives and the lives of those who surround us.
This time spent being single is one of the most valuable times in our adult lives. Why? Because this is the time where we can get to know who we are, and who we were created to be. This is the time where we build and establish our self-worth and discover what makes us happy without compromise. Now don’t get me wrong, being involved in a loving relationship is a wonderful thing that everyone should experience, but relationships don’t necessarily make you happy. True happiness comes from within from an individual knowing their self-worth, and what better time in life is there to spend with yourself other than your time of singleness?
Single Sistas, I encourage you to spend this year in focus of a fabulous season of singleness, and not allow your focus to be solely on having a relationship. I know this is not an easy thing to do, especially after some friends and family members got engaged or married over the past holiday season…and of course with the most romantic day of the year right around the corner. I know it’s not easy seeing couples together on date night, and you are out with your girls on yet another girl’s night, and I know how deep the desire for a relationship can go. I know it’s hard, but I encourage you to look into this time of your life and embrace the beauty that it is because being single is something that should be celebrated, not overlooked and upset over.
Just think about it, when you’re married, you’ll have the rest of your life to be focused on someone else, until death do you part (hopefully), so take this time in your life to live it up and learn about yourself, because once you’re in a relationship things will change…hopefully in a positive way though. As I close this letter I say to all of my Single Sistas, spend this time in your life focusing on your purpose, and wait patiently for the mate that is on his way. How patient should you be and how long should you wait? Until the one you deserve finds you in his season of singleness. Remember ladies, it’s not your job to seek, but it is your job to be sought after, and how do you position yourself to be found? Get busy focusing, moving and living in your purpose as a single woman. Wait on the relationship you deserve, and embrace this wonderful journey. You are worth the wait, and so is the man waiting for you. Celebrate this New Year by celebrating you and all that you are!
Sincerely Your Single Sista,

Actress Vivica A. Fox hasn’t given up on finding her dream guy.
At 48, Fox says she’s single and loving it. In a recent interview with EURweb, the star, whose 10-month engagement to 29-year-old club promoter Omar “Slimm” White ended abruptly in 2011, opens up about the value of holding out for the right man.
“I’m gonna wait for Mr. Right to come along and take my time,” Fox said. “I’m just enjoying just having a little me time, you know? But it’s not that I’m not taking applications.”
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, Auntie Viv. You can check out the rest over on Essence.
The fear of being alone, rushing into a relationship, and low self-esteem can all lead to settling. For some women, having a guy that is second best is better than having no guy at all. But, if you’re lowering your standards just to not be single or to boost your ego, now’s the time to let it go. Here are 14 signs you’re settling just because.
