Call me old fashioned...

I am completely and utterly against making the first move on men. Unless we’re in a bar, I want a complimentary drink, and don’t plan on speaking to you again after that night.

In my short time dating what I call “Today’s Man”, I guess I’ve learned as much as I’ve been forced to accept. One of my principle lessons being: I do not and will not make first romantic contact. While I understand that some men are not as aggressive as others, and may even be intimidated—I remain steadfast that those are the men I simply don’t want.

I’m intrigued by a man who knows what he wants and can strategize to acquire it. If I put myself in a position to take charge, what do I need a man for? History and experience have shown me that as a woman, when you initiate pursuit, you’re not only rushing the process, but most likely taking a voluntary detour from the route God had planned for you in the first place.

Now, I’m certainly not saying that all the men I’ve let pursue me have turned out to be Prince Charming, but I do sleep better at night without some scrub having the option to say “You came after me!” And yep, you’re right, only a scrub would say something like that, but I’ve also found most of the men I pursued to be pretty boring, corny, or frankly uninterested [in me]. Which helps to serve as my reminder that I am not taking my time! (Remember, haste makes waste and a long blocked list.)

For as long as I’ve been in the game and around it, it has been confirmed time and time again, that a man knows what he wants and will prove it, and there’s nothing that can get in the way of that. So this is the philosophy that comforts me when I lock eyes with potential bait at the club, the bank, or the gas station and I keep it pumping. Because regardless of the courting structure we’re being prodded to conform to today, I still challenge and expect a man to be a man.


So if you’re a man, and if you want it, you better make it so.

The Top 5 Dating Apps Worth Downloading!

With just a few days left of 2015, you may want to look in the mirror and say "Self, it's time to try something different." You may be old school when it comes to dating but just like you adapted from the beeper to the cellphone and the "Tv Set" to the flat screen.....I'm sure you can give dating apps a try.

Now, dating apps are not for everyone but they may be the answer for most of us. According to a forum created in 2010, nearly 65% of men said they have "no game" and are afraid to get rejected so they wait until a women approaches them which left the ladies responding....."if he is not man enough to come up and approach me then....he is not the one". Hmmm....wonder how many soulmates we've passed up ladies and gentlemen by thinking like that?

Good thing is.....dating apps take a little of the embarrassment and shyness away. I've rounded up the top 5 you should download by 2016 and if you get a match and y'all end up marrying.....don't forget to credit TSR *wink, wink* Ha!

I Believe That There Are Still Some Good Men/Women Out There...


Even though it is much easier to blame the reason of why you're single on the fact that there are just no "good ones" left, I'm going to have to call BS!

Fellas, every woman is not out here chasing Instagram followers by getting half naked in front of their bathroom mirrors, worried about popping bottles in the club, and being a groupie to a known entertainer. Also,Ladies, not all men have ill intentions.

The Youniverse: Show & Prove


Lately, I’ve been preachy. Preaching to my girlfriends, the ones that inquire, about not accepting what you don’t want and letting go of what no longer serves you. All the while, I’ve been practicing nothing of the sort.

The truth is, when you’ve convinced yourself that the present situation is the only option, it’s easy to settle for less without even knowing it. For example, I’ve currently been nursing a ridiculous situationship with my ex-boyfriend for the sake of a love we once shared, and convincing myself that he’s what works for me “right now”. But the reality of the situation is: I have a history of loving unavailable men, and he’s just the next Picasso in the patchwork.

PERSONAL RANT: All Men Cheat! Period.


Okay, this week's topic is very controversial. The Singles Rant fifth episode "Do All Men Cheat" which airs this Friday at noon, will be sure to arouse disagreement. Do I think all men cheat? *Bleep* Yes!

No, this is not a "Diary of a mad black woman" but instead a "Diary of a black woman who plays no games and has zero tolerance for nonsense"! I'm not saying that men cheat in EVERY relationship BUT what I am saying is that every man at one point in their life has cheated, point blank period. *Insert ridiculous Dab dance here*

TOP 5 WAYS TO FIND OUT IF YOU ARE A SIDE PIECE



This week's episode of The Singles Rant is all about the "side piece". What's a side piece, you ask? A side piece is a man or woman that a person dates while they are in a relationship with someone else. Judging from our Atlanta singles, almost everyone has either had a side piece or been one before.

For those of us that don't enjoy being the "little something on the side", we have compiled a short list of signs to look for to find out if you are in fact the side piece so that you can get the heck out of dodge! Check it out:
