A fluffy girl's guide to RECESSION FRIENDLY dating.....

So once again after a conversation about dating with a few friends.....
I GET IT!
You don't want to invest a whole lot of money in a woman you may not ever want to see again in life....That is TOTALLY fine, but no one wants to be labeled  'The Horrible Date'.

So here is a list,of RECESSION FRIENDLY places to take a date that can not only engage conversation but stay under $60.


  • The aquarium; $20 per person- Why not go find Nemo?
  • The botanical gardens: $10 per person- Just hope she doesn't have severe allergies to flowers,pollen, grass...or bee stings...
  • A ride on the oppsoite side of town,I know its summer and gas is NOT cheap,but take her to a place she has never been before,which could be as simple as the other side of town....In Cleveland ,the west side of Cleveland is like a different city( I mean technically it is but you get my point),Lakewood is filled with fun shops, galleries,and cute little restaurants....Kind of makes you feel like you aren't in Cleveland anymore
  • The planetarium  ; $14- Show her the stars,moon,planets,etc.....Its kinda cute,in a dorky romantic way
  • The drive in theater....... Okay so I totally know that in my previous blog I said movies were a bad idea BUT, drive ins are different...Slightly more intimate,kinda like watching a movie at home...but in a car with about 50 other cars around,and over priced popcorn....Okay maybe its not like being at home,but its still pretty cute!
....So take my tips,enjoy your dates....and hopefully save some money for the second one!

So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work...
