I KNOW this is old but seriously. Can single people stop giving relationship advice? It'd be one thing if they gave good advice, but horrible, HORRIBLE relationship advice! Stop doing this! If you're not happily married, and really sometimes even if you are, stop giving people your advice! Your hot mess of advice!! Solicited or not. If you don't know, keep your mouth shut.
No one's given advice to me but I've been reading blogs and facebook statuses and responses... and TheConversation.... sorry Hill. You're cute but you're 43 & single & trying to figure it out. Good for you but I can't take you seriously. Am I supposed to be having a conversation based on your mistakes? I know plenty of people blundering their way through love without adding yours to the mix. Yes, I know there are stories from people in successful relationships. Yes, I know I'm only on chapter 2 but already I can't stop rolling my eyes and sighing. I'm going to finish the book since my online/HU/DC HUers book club is all reading it but somebody better pick a better book if/when there's a next time.
Even outside the book... like say on a blog... sometimes it's just you talking about relationships like you lived it sooo much and sooo well & you're 27... just like me. Womp womp. It's altogether possible you've had more relationships than me. *shrug* And? I guess you have to talk about your experiences but sometimes you just sound stupid. And like you'll be one of those people who lives off of the people going nuts over your writing, look up at 43 and ask as you write TheNextConversation, how did I end up 43 and singlenevermarriedwithnokids? You SAY you want to get married, but what are you doing to make that happen? Preparing yourself for that responsibility some way you're NOT sharing with us? You don't even seem to take relationships seriously.
Rashan has said many times how easy black male bloggers have it. If you're a black male blogger, you say 5 words and women fawn all over you like it's the gospel and send you n.aked pics and talk about the connection between the two of you (who have never exchanged so much as an email) because you're just. so. deep. He got none of those from me for the record. I don't play that. Lol. Why am I gonna sit here and big up you when you aren't saying anything anyone else hasn't said? Or even if you are, can we have mutual appreciation instead of me blowing your head out of proportion? People are such sheep. Lol. That sounds just as bad and elitist as those people who don't watch tv but whatever. My point is, if black male bloggers have it this easy, imagine how easy an attractive black male non-fiction NON-HISTORICAL writer has it... You know KNOW women are like, "He's so open! So sensitive!" He almost got me! (Sorry Rashan) It's like a forehead kiss. "It's endearing... it's damn near e.rotic!" Hill lost that with an anecdote before the end of the first chapter. I won't be led to the slaughter!
And don't even get me started on these "rhetorical" facebook statuses about your prince being out there or whatever you say to get attention. And so someone will tell you how beautiful you are and what a catch you are. Womp womp. Cry me a river. Some things you should keep to yourself. Or at least off of the internet. (Says the girl who is dating a blogger & talks about him all the time...)
