In the beginning stages of a relationship, we need to keep an eye out for “red flags.” We may dismiss them altogether, but they help to warn or caution us. Red flags also help us identify situations that have the potential to harm us, emotionally, mentally or physically.   However, It’s not always easy when we begin to notice these red flags appearing in our relationships … It’s much easier to rationalize them away. So...

I found out why I’m still single … Apparently, you have to go outside and let people see you. I read that line on a popular meme, and it spoke to the struggle of single introverts everywhere, including myself. I affectionately refer to myself as a social introvert. I do enjoy interacting with others. Over time I have developed the skills to do this well (so well that I have a hard time convincing people that...

It’s over. Two words you never want to hear or say to the person you love most. Let’s face it: Relationships are hard work, and sometimes, despite our best efforts, they just don’t work out. Cue the nights filled with tear-soaked pillowcases, sleepless nights, swollen eyes, and huge waves of emotion that feel like they are going to swallow you whole. We’ve been there (trust us!). Your “well spring of life” has sprung a leak and...

Backtrack a few years: I’m hanging with my boyfriend (who is now my husband) watching the movie “Two Can Play That Game” and he blurts out, “women may know how to commit but men love better!” Immediately the sista-girl in me rose up and in my head I said, “Oh NO he didn’t just say that. I hope he doesn’t really believe that.” Outwardly my face said it all, as I stared at him with a...

Before they left, the father was consoling his sons as they cried, even though he himself was brushing away tears. After getting them in the car, he hugged his wife, told her he loved her, and took two steps back and said: “I’ll let you go.”   He said he’d never forget the image of her car driving away … When he couldn’t see them anymore, he walked back into his garage. He pressed the...

Dinner? Check. Movie? Been there. Dinner AND a movie? Done that. Netflix & Chill? Ummm … Does this list mirror your last few dates? C’mon guys … not that anything is wrong with dinner and a movie, but after you’ve done these a few zillion times, don’t you wish there were other activities you and bae could enjoy together? Now I might be projecting here, but I’m willing to bet that she would love to be surprised...

Have you ever found yourself stuck in a relationship that you knew you should not have been in? All the signs in the relationship point to a dead end, but for some reason you just can’t work up the courage to get out of the relationship. It is extremely vital that you get out! Run for your life and your future! Breaking up is probably one of the hardest things in life to do. Often,...

One of the challenges that a single woman of God faces is her wait to be pursued.  The Bible is clear in that it says, “He that finds a wife, finds a good thing and receives favor from the Lord” (Proverbs 18:22). We know what you’re thinking … if another person says that “he that findeth” scripture one more time I’m gonna find a good list of reasons to quit this whole “waiting” thing. Considering the perceived...

A popular pastor that I follow quotes that sex can be considered three things: “gross, god, or a gift.” I believe this to be very true in our day, due to how sex outside of marriage is overrated — and underrated within the context of marriage. It is “gross” to those that have been taught their entire life that sex is bad and will cause people to look at you differently. For some, it can...

Dating is one of the most popular ways that couples connect to get to know each other. The typical first date usually includes dinner at a special restaurant with the gentleman picking up the tab. From the moment the couple takes their seats, they get to observe someone that they’re getting to know while they chat and chew. If the chemistry is there, the evening can be an amazing first date together, as the conversation...
