April Bliss Check-In #2


  1. Another great blog

    I def. think we all have baggage and I also think it's up to us to unpack it on our own with our mate supporting us from the sideline. How does the saying go "when the student is ready the teacher will come"

    I don't think Tyrese or Steve hate women or are misogynist. I thought Steve's book (which I read but didn't purchase) was just simple basic common sense *shrug* I didn't agree with everything he said but most of what he said I already knew/felt the same way about. I did not read Tyrese's book but I do/have read his tweets. I think he means well just comes across wrong more times than not.

    SN- I can't spell worth ish either never could although I have always been a reader *holds head down*

  2. UHm..Tyrese and Steve are very much stuck in a 1950s mode of looking at relationships which DO NOT WORK for modern times. I shouldn't have to "think like a man" in order to get what I want. And whats a "lady" anyway: a misogynistic construct of how women should act. So if I am outside of those things, am I not a "lady" ? That book was flawed, outdated and didnt apply to me at all. DO I not "act like a lady?" ANd Tyrese bothers me to high heaven....

  3. I don't think like a man nor do I try or care too. I was speaking in general I don't think they hate women or look at them negatively. I didn't say I agreed with their thought process 100% but I do think Steve says basic common sense things at times that women have heard for yrs. *shrug*

  4. I dont know much about Tyrese, and havent seen much of his acting abilities beyond "Baby Boy." But i do like that idea of having help "unpacking baggage." I agree, that's not an easy job to do alone.

The Art of the Dirty Talk

I am the queen of talking dirty after dark. I mean I am GOOD at it. VERY good. So much so I dated a guy and for months..all he wanted me to do was speak nasty to him. We never has sex. Nothing. Just a bunch of dirty talk....and he was happy. (Hey..a very safe sex fetish!) Heck..I'm even considering picking up some extra income in this economy and becoming a phone sex job does NOT pay enough.

I will say there is an ART to dirty talk. You cant be shy. You cant be a prude and say things 1) you are not comfortable saying and 2) that you certainly can't back up if you are in a position to act on those things with a trust partner. 3 ) things you have no real reference point of familiarity with. Don;t say you are down for a "golden shower" if you think that has something to do with "lemonade kool-aid". DOn't pretend to have a weird accent. That would be ROLE playing..and not "talking dirty". BUT a lot of "talking dirty" is role…

Dating and the Dark-Skinned Girl

Often times in the circle of close bloggers, who become friends, we get into debates (albeit friendly ones) but debates nonetheless. I happened to be on my "private" blog site reading a dear friend's blog. I love her to death and she's been like a big sister to me, helping me through my divorce as a shoulder to cry on and listening ear. And although I've never met her in person...I do consider her a friend (that may sound strange to most..but it isnt to bloggers!) She's a gorgeous Black and Mexican in southern Cal and raising her teenage son amazingly! I was reading her blog...and came across this:

Ok..just a random thought... What is with the expression "LSLH?" Because it's usually used in a negative way, I'm offended by it.It irks me to no end! I mean, does it make us less of a black women because we have lighter skin and long hair? So when I read blogs or websites that use that expression, I think it's sad. So what if I&…

The "Fleece Johnson" Guide to Dating

I am not sure if any of you saw the recent Boondocks where they spoofed prison culture and gayness. Well....if you haven' is a little clip of where they got their inspiration from. Fleece Johnson...the Booty Warrior... So yeah...Fleece is a little crazy..but we are about to roll with thiis for a minute. I am about to take the "Fleece Johnson" no holds barred approach to dating. If I see a dude it's going down  like this: I likes ya I wants ya We can do this the easy way Or the hard way....your choice. Now..Fleece might be talking about gay men and booty warrior and "hornin". But..I'm talking about taking the same approach to men. If I see a dude I want..I WANT HIM. Imma have him. We can play games and bullshit and do it the hard way...OR we can do it the easy give in to me and my desires (and yours)..and be happy. Which would you rather have? Would you rather have to do dumb sh*t to work for a good woman? Or take an easy approach with the sam…
