    Men Are Like Bananas

    They are only ripe enough to be enjoyed for such a short amount of time. First, when they are bright and fresh, you can just take them as they are. They travel easily, get along well with others - see one banana and there's never one too far away, and they don't require too...

    My Odd Love Affair With Men

    I am not a traditional beauty, I am older, curvy (the amounts of curves have varied over time), black (well mostly chocolate), and attractive but I don't think I am drop dead gorgeous. Men have always behaved rather oddly around me and I have never quite figured out why. They...

    So, there's a guy that I've been off and on with for about five years. When I say off and on I mean that we dated for a few months, have a history, and in between relationships have hooked up now and again. He's a great guy and can be really sweet and considerate, etc. However...

    Asking For Your Number...

    Why do men ask for your number and then not call?  I would rather they didn't ask because then I wouldn't get my hopes up!

    Most men I meet or see online are douchey,

    Freud, were he still alive, would tell me that I don't understand men because I lived with my mother as a teenager and had almost all female friends.  Mind you, I think Freud was usually full of sh*t. However, I do think being surrounded by women had an impact on my ability...
