It’s a classic debate. Grab the bull by the horns and go for what you want or let a man be a man and wait for him to show his interest and ask you to go out on a date. It’s a tricky one. We asked our readers if they’d ever asked a man out. And for most of the respondents it turned out pretty well…like marriage and babies well. See what they had to say in the stories below.
Gabrettee: Yep. Turned down once. Still good friends with the other.
Latoya: I have. He was cool with it cause he was like I never had a woman take me out on a date. Told him u been messing with the wrong woman. Lol I like to make him feel appreciated
North: Depends on the true nature of the relationship. I have exes that are like fam. I also have exes that ain’t. It all depends.
Karma: It is if you have something going on behind your new s/o’s back.
Sometimes in relationships, it’s just better to trust your own instincts and judgement because even though they may mean well, family and friends can often be way off base when it comes to matters of the heart. We asked our Facebook friends and Twitter followers what is the worst relationship advice they’ve ever received from friends and family. You won’t believe some of the outrageous things people had to say, trying to lend a listening ear and helping hand.
#iamtrayvon: My aunt told me if I walk in on my husband in bed with a woman I should lay down in the bed in the same position as her so I don’t lose him
Ơ̴̴͡.̮Ơ̴̴̴͡ ™: “Off with his head if he lay his hands on you” #TrueLife (my dad quote)
This was a tough one. Typically, our True Life questions get tons of responses; but today, crickets. Apparently didn’t want to incriminate themselves on Facebook, so the answers were a bit sparse. But sparse doesn’t mean wack. Check out some of the stories below.
Most of us would agree that being in love is a beautiful, wonderful magical thing. It’s lovely. But when you take the plunge, make a commitment and decide to share your life with someone else, that comes with some adjustments. Though, most of our readers would never want to go back, they also had to admit that there are some things about their old single lives that they miss. See what they had to say.
Denise: Hanging out all night long#TrueLife
Valencia: Space! It’s like I love my guy! But damn smothering much! Back up! Give 2 weeks to myself lol
When I came up with the topic for today’s question: Did an creepy, older man tell you that you had blossomed, I thought about my own experience of an inappropriate, older man telling me, at around 10 or 11 years old, that my a$$ was fat. I remember thinking at that moment that something had changed. Men wouldn’t see me as a little girl anymore. And even though I spent much of my childhood trying to be grown, I didn’t realize that for a lot of men, a woman is nothing more than a sex object. I knew that I surely wasn’t alone in this experience but I didn’t realize, until I was reading your stories how prevalent this issue is and how as one reader put it, referencing The Color Purple: “A girl child ain’t safe in a family of men.”
Sharai: Of course! there was always a creepy old man like that. it made me feel disgusting and extremely self conscious.
Sharon: Yeah…he was the son of the woman that used to keep/babysit us….the same creepy bastard that snuck in my room at night. He said a lot. Done a lot. May his creepy A$$ rest in pieces
It’s tell the truth Thursdays around here. And today we got really personal. We asked our readers if they’ve ever had a pregnancy scare or found out their birth control wasn’t working. We know that this experience is pretty common but we didn’t expect to hear the responses we received. Check them out below.
Tevina: Yes. A few. I went to Planned Parenthood.
Michelle: One the condom broke. ..and I had to goto PP as well…
