Was I Really Ghosted by My Kindred Spirit?
The story titled: A Kindred Spirit Entered My Life But I Could Never Hold Onto Him was my confession about a past love affair that still conjures up a lot of emotion.
A Kindred Spirit Entered My Life But I Could Never Hold Onto Him
I always was a pushover for a man with dreads. Up until recently, I thought it was just because natural looking dreads look sexy on a man. But not long ago, I had a revelation about why my love for the style continues to hold a special appeal for me, even more so than before.
My Great love
After a lot of suffering and wrong choices, I found my soulmate. Here's a little bit of background to get started. He is amazing although he doesn't believe it. We met 1,5 years before we started dating. A month after dating we had to be in quarantine together and then he didn't leave. 3 months after that we moved into our apartment. In two weeks is our first year anniversary.
A Twist in the Tail
A Twist in the Tail By Dingo Marhax Maria was the virgin. She worked in a cheap gift shop, selling plastic flowers, trinkets, wind-up toys, assorted kitsch. The customers were schoolgirls and girls like Maria. It was late October, and the first snows had fallen and melted into muddy slush. The air was as crisply cold in the shop as outside, in the slushy, dirty street.
I once heard someone say
Dear Heart Breaker, I have not crossed my mind until recently and I think that is good. It means I am making progress and moving on with my life. Most of the time this is hard for me to do.

No more dating apps
I think I’ve reached one of my bottoms. For me. This is so far off from where I’ve always envisioned myself to be and yet all these experiences continue to humble the f out of me.

How To Communicate Better in a Non-Fairytale Sort of Relationship
How, how, how… Do you have the courage to communicate what you really want and need in your relationships? If so, how? How do you communicate your needs?
Energy in Relationships that Served its Purpose
I can tell when someone or something in a relationship has served its purpose in my life. The person in the relationship is so much fun while he or she is there. The energy is an equal exchange between the two of you. But if you're not careful that exchange that seems like an equal amount is sometimes just enough to get you hooked on him or her.
Online Dating: A Part-Time Job
So if you're a black woman living in the Washington DC area, like myself: you're smart, you're adventurious, with a twist of curiosity. i'm Cj. Yeah it stands for something, but I won't reveal my idenity quite yet because I have secrets.
My Letter to Him
To the Love of my Life, I don't even know where to begin this letter to you, or even if you will ever see this. I hope you do. I hope that this finds its way to you somehow because I need you to know that none of this was a game. That none of this was a lie or even a joke. I need you to know that the love I had and still have for you was and is 100% real it. That despite all the demons inside your head telling you that it wasn't real, it was. I know you had to block me from your life because it was tearing you apart physically and mentally. I know you had to do what was best for you. But I wish things could have been different. I wish we could have pushed that restart button together and not separate.
The woman I'm talking to has a boyfriend?!

Am I the asshole for flirting to get better tips?
Hey guys! Today I want to ask y’all a question about flirting. Innocent flirting, mostly! There was a time I used to work at a crappy diner, and I often depended on tips for a living. I wasn't masking much. I think a lot of people in the service industry can relate to that. And I was always a big flirt. I always thought of flirting as just another way to interact with people, just like telling jokes and sharing stories. It’s not for everyone but it’s not a promise of anything, nor is it a declaration of intent. And I think when you take a step back, a lot of us do this social flirting with no second intentions. You know how it goes when you see a girl all dressed up, and you tell her boyfriend to better watch out or you might steal her. That sort of thing. We don’t really mean it that way, people know we don’t, but it’s a flirt still.
