Decoding His Profile


I have to say, I’ve had my fair share of online dating. Honestly, it never ends up being anything serious. It’s all very systematic when I think about it. A date here or there, some good morning text, and then it goes silent or I cut them off because they’re crazy or I catch them in a lie. Like it never fails. It’s always the same ol’ cycle. I don’t club, I work and I’m a mother so dating apps give me the feeling of going out to meet new people without actually having to do it right away. It’s all very similar to biting into a juicy peach in the middle of Walmart’s produce section to see if it’s any good before you actually buy it.  The thought behind online dating it is all great. The people behind it is all wrong. I’ve met some interesting people in my online search and learned to decode profiles. Take a look:
Height: Ladies this is not a trick question, but you’d think it was because the majority of men lie in this section. If his profile says he’s 5’11 he’s more than likely around 5’6. Since I stand at 5’3 on a good day with shoes on, everyone is always taller than me so no biggie.

Profession: Entrepreneur: You have to pay close attention to this one. I’m all for a man with a business mindset but if he has gold teeth there is no way in hell he’s an entrepreneur boo! This can also translate to “I don’t have a job.” Call me bougie if you want but I can’t potentially date a man who’s jobless. If you’re not stable, you should be looking for work instead of a woman.  BEWARE OF THE “CHEFS” AS WELL.  Charleston has a lot of nice restaurants but Outback isn’t considered one of them.

Kids: Prefer not to say: Honey Bee run!!!! He has multiples!!! Some women may not have a problem with dating a man with multiple children. I on the other hand like to keep the number between 0-1. I’m unsure If I want more children in the future but, I at least want everyone to be able to fit in my Chevy. In most cases this in general could cause a lot of drama in a potential relationship as well with multiple children and multiple baby mothers.


Pictures:  I pay very close attention to detail. When I flip through pictures I focus on the background! If there are two toothbrushes sitting off in the distance on the counter, then honey he’s not single. He’s “we’re having a tough time” single.
If there’s a baby car seat in the background of that selfie he took in the car, then this means he has an infant-toddler and he’s probably not done dealing with his ex.

If all of his pictures were taken by someone else, then he’s not single AND he has a roommate. On the flip side to that how many men you know ask their male roommate to take pictures of them every time they get dressed up????? NONE! His roommate’s name is Courtney and he files one of her kids on his taxes every year. They also share a bed!

I even look to see if they live in an apartment, trailer, or house! (I’m crazy yall)

Let’s not mention the fake pictures!


About Me: This is where things can go very south for a man if he’s passed all the previous bullet points with flying colors. If he says things like

·         I have three kids that I don’t see but pay for (I actually saw this!)

·         Just tryna have fun

·         I like chillin, and making money

These type of men take life to casually and will end up being a causality. Get off his page as soon as possible.

Take these things into consideration the next time you’re browsing honey bees!!!!

Why Are You Single?

As I'm sitting at work chatting with coworkers about life, I get asked the dreadful question. Breezy, why are you single? I wish I had some profound text book answer for them or hell, five dollars for every time I was asked by people in general. The answer is simple. I just wont settle! Being a single mother dating in 2018 is as complicated as trying to read Mike Tysons lips with your tv muted. Although I’ve struggled with self-image in the past, I’m in a much better place mentally and physically and know my worth. That alone is a powerful weapon. I often look at my friends and family members and think to myself….am I really the only one who doesn’t have a significant other? When will it be my season?
As quickly as those thoughts creep into my head I try to shake them away with positive affirmations. See, I grew up in the church and understand that there’s power of life and death in the tongue. My prayers for my future husband are very detailed and I know deep down, the man that h…

Just So You Know

Time is such a precious thing. As a single mom in my late 20s, I’m very selective in how I choose to spend my time. When it comes to dating, there’s a few things I’d like men to understand. Dating a single mom isn’t a science. It’s actually common sense. Below are some of the most important things I need my future prospect to grasp before asking me out…
We’re A Package Deal- My son is my world. You can’t have me without having him. It’s been the two of us for the last seven years. He’s extremely bright and picks up on bull fairly quicklyso I feed off of him as well. Not only are you dating me, but you’re dating us.If you can’t see yourself taking family trips, having family game night, or watching cartoons then we’re not for you honey.
Your Intentions Must Be Clear – As we’re getting to know each other understand that your actions must match your words. To be honest I am not interested in friendships being this close to 30. I have work friends, family friends and patient friends. That’…

Don't Be So Negative

I look at myself as being a pretty darn good mother in general. Society created the label of “single” mothers. Since when did my relationship status have anything to do with my parenting skills? Whether I had a partner or not, the values I instill in my son would be the same. I think they’re e a lot of misconceptions that people have about single mothers in general. Why can’t we just be great at raising our children? Are we allowing these negative connotations to dictate what we’re capable of?
As a single mother, I wish society would understand that we’re some of the strongest human beings ever. People that play multiple roles at once usually get paid big bucks to perform. I can assure you though that I’m no Tyler Perry nor Eddie Murphy and I take my payments for performing in mommy I love yous and sticky-face kisses. We had the choice to take the easier way out and continue with our lives but we chose to do what was right and take care of our responsibility. Just because we’re single …
