Get a man pt. 2 – The LongLiveTobe way

Somethings deserved a sequel, like The Blueprint 2; others need to be preserved in time never to be duplicated, like Martin. Some might not share my sentiments about the culture, but then again, who made me a tastemaker? All I know is that the original post Get a man – The LongLiveTobe way brought me ...

Love sucks and I’m never dating again

We meet, we date, and we fall in love to live happily ever after. Why can’t it always be this easy? What happens when you are dating someone and it goes up in flames? (For this post, anything less than marriage is a failed relationship). I find it sad when someone gives up on love ...
