Quote of the Day

If you can't promise yourself that this man/woman will make an ideal spouse and or parent to your children and you don't ever think they will give you the life you have always dreamed of then thats your answer right there, it's time to walk away. You're not getting any younger and by a certain age in life people are who they are, there's no use in fighting for something you won't ever be able to change. Use that energy to find the person that best suits you and your needs. I've said it once and I will say it again "Love is only half the battle"
- Jen The Pen

I live by this philosophy. A lot fo people play around with dudes that waste their time. Before they know it, they are 40 yrs old and still messin with the same loser.

Well i first have to say I am sick of Black women saying that US men should be chasing them - PLEASE!
It's ok for women to say "WE ARE NO LONGER THE COOKERS, HOUSECLEANERS ETC".... When we are so quick to look for the traditional woman right?

So then give us the same respect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE ARE NO LONGER THE CHASERS AND SHOULDN'T HAVE TO BE.
Now do I agree with most of her points on relationships YES, but times are changing, people are changing, this beef would have been valid years ago but with all the changes we have made IN/WITH ourselves we only care for ourselves and that even includes relationships.

Our mothers and fathers actually went into the marriage/relationship knowing they had only the house and kids to live/work for - TODAY we all have so much to work and live for and there are so many distractions that we both man and woman face, who is really trying to do the right thing when it comes to treating one another right.

But really, just as women change - so do men! CHANGE - IT IS NECESSARY!
