When it comes to men who are romantically interested in you, it’s really simple. Just ignore everything they say and only pay attention to what they do.

I am one of the searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover it’s ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, it’s unceasing motion, it’s mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains, deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with the one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know- unless it be to share our laughter.

What they don’t tell you is that love does not last forever. When the realities of life set in, your feelings change. It takes more than you think to know someone. Are you compatible? Can you have a stable life together? Does he have the ability provide for you? You will come to a point where you realize that love is not enough to keep two people together.

He was not my boyfriend. On the other hand, he wasn’t just a friend either. Instead, our relationship was elastic, stretching between those two extremes depending on who else was around, how much either of us had to drink, and other varying factors. This was exactly what I wanted, as commitments had never really been my thing. And it wasn’t like it was hard, either. The only trick was never giving more than you were willing to lose.

Truly powerful women don’t explain why they want respect. They simply don’t engage those who don’t give it to them.

White people destroyed 3/4s of the world for spices and have the nerve not to season their food.
