It's Thursday, which means one thing: Twitter party time!
The issue of gender roles in the context of dating is something that's been addressed here on YourTango. But now, a recent Twitter rant by celebrity little brother Rob Kardashian — involving accusations that his ex cheated on him with more than 20 men — has put the argument back in the spotlight.
"All you need is love"? Sorry Beatles but, you need much more. If you put every last drop of energy you had into your romantic relationship, that relationship itself would crumble because you'd wake up one day realizing you were miserable because you had no friends, no career and no identity of your own.
So you're cruising along in an amicable relationship, and you're wondering if, at 6 months or a year into it, your man has long-term relationship potential. After all, if a long-term relationship or marriage is what you're ultimately looking for, you might have to take stock of your relationship early on before you get too far in — involved, in love, in debt or in denial.
It's a little curious that none of the newspaper's three major movie critics reviewed 'Think Like a Man' in their weekly movie review roundups published Thursday.
Everybody has patterns. If you think you don't have one, then your pattern might just be constantly fighting not to do the same thing you did in all of your previous relationships, which is a pattern in itself. Falling into these patterns might be slowing you down in your search for Mr. Right.
I think it's so annoying when girls won't eat a big meal in front of their date, or just have to wear a full face of makeup whenever a guy they like is around. We're humans, not dolls with no organs, and last time I checked, men feel pretty comfortable burping and the rest around us.
A woman's biggest fear is coming off as needy. Why else would we be taught exactly when to respond to a text, when it's okay to ask a guy out, when it's okay to say, "I love you" for the first time?
The dating world is one of games. We are taught all sorts of ways to hide or thoughts and feelings. All sorts of ways to make one thing look another way. And so, when we meet someone who doesn't play by the rules, we often think, 'What is wrong with this person? You can't just…say that!'
They call 'em an "ex" for a reason. And while we'd love to break up with all of our boyfriends and find ourselves on good, positive terms with them soon after, sometimes feelings get in the way, drama ensues, and you find yourself on an irritating emotional rollercoaster you thought you had left behind when the relationship ended.
To put it simply: Sometimes men know they're doing something wrong (and they're just too lazy to do the right thing) and sometimes, they don't know. But as a woman, it's hard to tell the difference. Here are 7 times he probably didn't realize he was pissing you off.
I recently did a survey on a group of black women regarding their reasons for not dating men who are not of color. Through my findings it seems as though black women aren't actually opposed to dating outside of their race. Part of the dilemma lies in women of color thinking that men outside of their race won't be attracted to them.
It may be a tossup between Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve in terms of which holiday makes singles feel the loneliest — better yet, the most desperate.
