In Preparation of What's to Come

I have a lot of male friends.It seems that I am forever being friend zoned. These guys and these relationships just kind of hang in the balance with no real titles and no real definitions. Now that I've come to the conclusion that what I really want is to be married and possibly have more babies, I've started thinking about what it is that I need to do next to prepare me for the things I'm asking for. So far this list includes:

1. Getting my health on track because I don't want to leave my current children, my future husband and my future kids too soon

2. Fixing my financial situation 

3. Dropping my hoes....

Did I mention that the list is pretty new? I know there are other things that need to be fixed but right now, I'm focused on these three things. Anyway, this post is about #3, the dropping of the hoes. 

Now, when I say hoes I mean those guys that you kinda keep in rotation for when you need somebody to Netflix and chill with, a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen know all of the excuses we give ourselves for letting some people take up permanent residence in our lives when they should have only been awarded temporary passes or not have been awarded ANY entrance into our lives, minds and bodies in the first place. 

So yesterday I was contacted by 2 of these "friends" at separate times and it further confirmed what I've known all along which is that men are hot shitty messes who like to blame the confusion between the sexes on just the women. I think women are more open to the actual fact that everybody has issues. 

Anyway, one conversation was basically, "I do like you, I think we can be good together as long as you are there ...for sex"

Boy what? Please understand that what I'm looking for is not just about sex. The fact that frequent sex is one of your relationship demands tells me that we are on two totally different pages. I wouldn't be so pissed if you had listed good sex but frequent sex? 

First of all, ain't nobody got time for that. I live where I live and you live where you live and those will probably be 2 different places for a while because I don't look forward to cohabitating with anyone anytime soon.

Second of all,  I work and I hustle and I can only be attracted to someone that does the same. I want you to be legit busy so that you understand when I'm busy. Not the best set-up but one day we'll be able to sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labor and the time that we do have together, the focus will be on making it meaningful. Quality vs. Quantity. 

Third of all, bye Felipe! If I ever liked you before, you just completely turned me off. Aint no hope with dope (which you're obviously on). 

Later in the day, another 'friend' texted me and because I was under the impression that we're just friends, I asked him about another situation that I was briefly (very briefly) involved in. This negro was all like "I don't want to hear about what you got going on with somebody else" which made me ask if he was interested and of course the answer was "yes, but BLAH BLAH, BLAH BLAH, BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH....

Listen fellas, I don't have time for these games. I feel better though. Laying it all out on the line, finding out who's ready and who isn't. Survey says....this is going to be a long, hard journey, but I'm game. I will not settle. #IWantTheFairyTale

This promises to be an adventure guys! I can't wait to see what's next. Until next time.

Hugs & Kisses,

I Believe in Fairy Tales

Call me crazy but I am a hopeless romantic and I believe in fairy-tales. Now if you knew my dating record you'd wonder how I could possibly have faith in a happily ever after. I wonder myself sometimes...But I just do. I believe in soulmates, I believe in love at first sight. Not only do I believe in it but I want it!

And it's hard being this kind of girl in a hook-up culture. Guys have no motivation to be serious because there are so many people with low self-esteem or emotional issues that it is easy to find people that just want to hook up. Or pretend like that's all they want. 

But not THIS girl. I want to meet a guy that instantly intrigues me. I want the guy to approach me, I don't mind approaching a guy but I want the fairy-tale, remember? So I want him to approach me and engage me in an interesting conversation. A conversation that within in 2 minutes makes me think "I like this guy, I'm going to give him my number when he asks" And he'll ask...and we'll spend hours on the phone getting to know each other. And it won't be boring so that it feels like hours. Instead, it'll be easy going and interesting so that it feels like a few minutes until you look at the phone and realize that it's been 3 FREAKING HOURS! And the conversation will end with him asking me out. 

The week leading up to our big date will be filled with cute little texts and quick "I'm thinking about you phone calls" and get this...when I do a GOOGLE search, a background check, a social media stalking and a quick run through the Pulaski County Clerks office I won't find one single thing that turns me off or makes me say "Eeeek!" 

The first date will be wonderful...He'll have a car, he'll pick me up, he'll pay for dinner, he'll drive me home and we'll share our first kiss during which I'll think to myself "OMG, he's definitely going to be my bae" And like magic, we'll be a couple. 

And not just any couple, but the kind of couple that people look at and think "Mmmmm, they're perfect for each other." Are interests will be very similar. He'll have an entrepreneurial spirit like me and I'll support and encourage him in his endeavors and he'll do the same for me. Every time his friend's log onto Facebook, Instagram or SnapChat, he'll be bragging about how talented his boo his and encourage folks to buy tutus, t-shirts, hair bows, bracelets, books...#YouNameIt 

We'll always bee out on a date and post super cute pics on social media that will get hella likes and our friends will comment things like "OMG Latina you look so happy" or "Dude, I ain't seen you this happy with a woman in a long time" and he'll respond something sweet like "How could I not be happy with this QUEEN" You know shit that'll make me smile all goofy like. 

And my boys will LOVE him. He'll be the positive male role model that I've always wanted in their lives and they'll be all like "Ma, dude is cool" 

Oh, if he has kids (hopefully girls) they'll like me too... you know...because I'm so freaking likable. And because this is my fairy-tale. 
All that goodness can only lead to one thing! He'll pop the question in some grand gesture that involves my closest friends, or my boys, or at the library while I'm doing a program. Something cute and memorable with a romantic song playing. 

And hopefully this all will happen before my egg factory is depleted and we can get our groove on and have one or two babies. 


And we'll live a good life happily ever after....

Now where TF is he? 

What's your outlook on love? 

Much Love,

What is 50 Shades of Bae?

So I've been trying to figure out how I would introduce the world to my crazy dating life. The concept for 50 Shades of Bae is to share with the world the ridiculous things I've gone through trying to locate my KING. Oh, the many frogs I've kissed! I hope that my posts will inspire other ladies to share with the world the crazy dating situations they have found themselves in. I'm still trying to get over the fact that was even available! To me, that's a sign that this was meant to be. I hope you enjoy.
