Bachelorette Review: Episode 2 Get the Fuck Out

So let me first say that I really don’t follow the Bachelor/Bachelorette shows. I have seen bits from time to time. I will say that I did watch Episode 1 of this season. This is why I decided to write this review.

Oh and a black woman is the Bachelorette this time. I am stoked! I gotta support a sister when she is trying to find love.

I think that this will be fun.

So the first episode was about meeting the guys and who would get cut. I was pissy because I think that a couple of guys who got cut shouldn’t have and a couple who stayed should have been on the first bus smoking. The one black guy who cried about being cut because he couldn’t show off his clothes was an idiot.

So this one guy with this catch phrase “Waboom” aka Lucas. I dislike him. He’s like a fake and why the fuck is he here. (producers pet)

Episode 2

It opens with the guys being broken into 2 groups for group dates. The first group had a mini-bbq, played football. Aston Kuchner and Mila Kunis helped her with the next challenge. (They are big fans of the show. Ironically, Ashton said he didn’t think her husband was in this group of guys).

The husband-worthy’ challenge was an obstacle course with a plastic baby. Waboom stiff-armed Kenny for the win. Kenny should have knocked him the fuck out. (I’m petty). He didn’t win anything but a grade-school project medal AND he let the plastic baby drown. WTF. The group date was in this funky restaurant. The guys tried but they didn’t really be romantic but were trying to get to know her but not too get frisky.

The individual date was with Peter. They went to Palm Springs with her dog (Copper-who is cute) and attended Barkfest. It was cute. I think he might go far. The dog had a cast on his leg. Can’t wait to hear how that happened.

The 2nd group date was basketball. Kareem helps her evaluate the guys. DeMario is bragging about how he is doing so well and he’s sure he’s going to get the date rose. The guys practice and then play a game in front of a crowd.

After the game, a woman comes up to Rachel and tells her DeMario is her man and still has keys to her house. I was like “Really Bitch”.

I was like, WTF. First he tried to say

“Who dis”

I was like, Nope, ninja, nope.

Karate chop him in the throat Rachel.

Please.

She didn’t but she did the black girl “Get the fuck out” move. Now if it wasn’t on TV, it would have had a couple of N-words and MF attached, but I was fine with it.

She goes back to the locker room and tells the guys. They are like. WTF. Didn’t see that one coming.

Secretly they are probably like, “good, 1 less guy in my way”

I feel you about that sentiment.

So they get back to the house and they tell the other guys. The 1st group of guys was like WTF, Seriously? What a douche.

She comes in and the cocktail hour before the rose ceremony. She’s sucking face with a couple of them. Waboom is dressed like he’s going I don’t know the fuck where.

The chiropractor gives her a massage (after her day she needs an adjustment).

The other guys try to make her feel better and ask her how she is doing and show concern for her well-being. I am with her, those points will bring you up in standing for getting a rose.

During this time Demario shows up asking to talk to Rachel. I’m like, is this Ninja for real? You played her and yourself and you want to talk about how your character was ‘assassinated?

Boy bye.

A couple of guys over hear the host telling Rachel that Demario is wanting to talk to her. Curiosity is getting the best of her so she decides to hear him out. The other guys run and tell so now there is a mob going to the front gate.

Personally, I would have went to the gate to see if he could still talk after my throat punch. And if he couldn’t, I would hit him again. In the testicles. Whatever was left, the rest of the guys could have. (again, I’m petty like that when my feelings get involved and I think you are playing me)

And that’s where it ends.

Will she let he say his peace? Will he beg to come back? Will Kenny kick his ass like he said he’d like to? Who is going to stand up and check Demario for being a douche?

Song of the Week: January 29, 2017 Justin Timberlake-Mirrors

What do we really see in the mirror?

Idris Elba just broke my heart

I am just devastated. my poor little ovaries are just weeping over the news.

Idris Elba just broke my heart.

I thought he could never do it, but he did.

He made a date for without me

for valentine’s day

even if its for a great cause

I’m not going to be there.

i am too done.

now I have to donate or contribute something to this organization, but truth be told. I want him in front me with with a champagne flute in one hand and his jacket lying across the chair and nothing but a smile across his face.

I’d be willing to give an ovary for that.

but alas, 2017 came in with a bang. any video with Idris is worth it and him romancing the women of the world, well, yea. it was the first internet breaking of 2017.

So now, i just gotta keep the faith and try not to take it too personally. I imagine that there are many women in the world right now who are debating whether or not to pay their mortgages or buy groceries and try to enter to win.

be still my heart.

so I’m going to have to sign and imagine having my own valentine’s day, hell i don’t want valentine’s day. i want every day dinners and every evening deserts.

but then again, my list of baby daddy’s grows every time I watch a TV and find a new show I’m interested in.

but Idris will still be baby daddy #1 (most days)

Dating today is Like Being Stranded on Survivor’s Island— Outwit, Outplay, Outlast–For Life.

The topic of this video is “Dating in 2016 do you find it hard to do?” which gave rise to this blog post.

I was watching one of my regular YouTube channel personalities (Much Love from KY) latest videos.

She reminds me so much of one of my godmothers who passed years ago. She sounds like her, smokes cigarettes (like her) and was from KY (like her). Every time I watch the videos, I think of her and it makes me remember all the funny stuff she said to me when I was a kid.

This blog started going all over the place so… i decide to turn it into several parts. So this is the first one.

I thought about some of her questions and this is my response:

Dating today is like being on Survivor. You gotta outwit, outlast and outplay people if you want to be successful.

Now success is different for everyone. One woman’s (or man’s) success could be getting married. Another is having a baby by an athlete/rapper; another person’s version of success is being a kept side-chick. So, success is relative.
There are some people out here who think that if you meet them at Starbucks, if they pay for your latte, they expect at least a blow job for it.

WTF.

God help you if they actually take you to Red Lobster or Outback Steakhouse, some of these clowns expect anal and a three-sum. On the flip side of that, some women have the mentality that if you want sex, you better feed me well and give me a good time before I get naked.

If you meet someone, girl/boy/trans/gender unspecific, don’t expect any type of sexual favors from them for your company. Period. Now if you are in the sex industry, then negotiate your payment up front, have at it, get your money and go home. Fair exchange is not robbery.

What is robbery (to me) is when you pretend to like someone (and you don’t) just for sex; when you pretend to want a relationship with someone (and you don’t)for sex or whatever you can get out of them; when you tell someone you love them and want to have a future with them (and you don’t). That is foul.

Unfortunately, too many people are not honest about what they want. Too many men and women pretend to be someone they are not, too many people are afraid to be alone, are lonely, are afraid of being lonely, afraid to be alone and childless (men/women/gender undecided) so they search for someone to ‘occupy’ their time so they don’t have to process their feelings.

Chris Rock said “Men are as faithful as their options”. Even if women came together and decided NOT to have entertain any man with a wife, girlfriend, fiancée, live-in or long term relationship, some heifer would go behind our backs and still sleep with a man (or several) just because she thinks well, why the fuck not. And there will be some man who will tell some woman he can do better than her man and soon enough, she will be bending over a couch somewhere, getting it in.

Now, as anyone reading my blog knows (or should); I advocate for everyone being honest and open about their sexuality. I also espouse everyone to be HONEST and OPEN to the people you get naked with. If you aren’t trying to have sex with everyone you date, tell them UP FRONT. Like within the first 30 minutes of the date or within the first couple of conversations. That way, they know you are not Sally Suck anybody’s dick or Dick Strong Pussy Eater Dirk. If they bolt, they did you a favor. If you have a 30/60/90 day rule, again, let them know IN ADVANCE. Don’t lead them to believe that you are going to put out when you are saving yourself for marriage. That’s cruddy and foul. If you are a man who doesn’t have sex with just anyone, say THAT upfront. Don’t let a woman start grinding on you and getting hot and bothered then say, oh yea, I’m saving myself for my wife.

Again, upfront and honest is the best approach.

If you have something that you can’t get rid of (like Herpes, Genital Warts, HIV) BE UPFRONT. People can date with STIS (Sexually Transmitted Infections) BUT you have to be HONEST about your status. I know there is someone reading this saying,

“I did that and I never heard from that person again”

Well, that person wasn’t the one for you then. There are plenty of dating sites for people with STIs such as herpes and also sites that support those dating and living with herpes and HIV.

Get counseling and other supportive services, see your doctor regularly and stay healthy, For yourself and those who love you.

Whatever you feel about your sexuality (conservative or swinging), just be honest and be honest with your partner about what you want, what you need, what you are willing to put up with and what you WILL NOT put up with.

Now if you are an honest, open, god-fearing, decent individual who has their stuff together and is mentally and emotionally healthy looking for the same.

GOOD LUCK WITH THAT

LOL

Seriously, I kid.

If you are emotionally and mentally healthy, stop trying to date people who are not. Stop entertaining people who Drama and foolishness lives with them on a daily basis? Stop entertaining men (and women and gender queer) people who are so fucked up that all the King’s Horses couldn’t put them back together?

Stop giving people the benefit of the doubt? If someone tells you that they are a college student but never study, well… it would be safe to say they probably are NOT a college student. If someone tells you that they live at X location with a ‘roommate’, and you never meet the roommate, something might be fishy with that situation. If someone tells you they like to keep their business “discrete” or “private”, keep moving. If someone tells you that they are separated, ask for their case number. If they don’t have a case number, they aren’t legally separated or divorced (which is the ONLY separation that counts, ask Faith Evans about that).
But this involves something a lot of people don’t do.

LISTEN.

It’s an art and it it’s a skill.

LISTEN

Stop hearing what you want to hear and what someone is actually saying.

Stop reading trying to read between the lines.

Stop inferring what someone means.

Stop justifying their actions.

If someone saying they are calling you at 7pm and they call you three days later as if you just talked an hour ago. They are on some disrespectful shit. Check them right then and there. If the president can make a date night with the first lady, someone can return a call to you.

Stop tolerating disrespectful bullshit.

Now, by that same token, stop projecting your tired bullshit on other people. If every person you dated has cheated on you, lied to you, treated you like garbage. The common denominator is YOU. Get some professional therapy to help figure out why you keep attracting and entertaining those types of situations.

Stop allowing people to gaslight you!

Now, by that same token, stop projecting your tired bullshit on other people. If every person you dated has cheated on you, lied to you, treated you like garbage. The common denominator is YOU. Get some professional therapy to help figure out why you keep attracting and entertaining those types of situations. Stop allowing people to ‘gaslight’ you. My definition of Gas lighting is when a person you are interested in constantly says or does things to you and tries to lead you to believe that you are imagining things. If someone tells you they are childless then later mentions they have three kids, when you question them they are emphatic that they told you and you know they did not, that’s gaslighting. If you find the person that you are dating or getting to know keeps giving your inconsistent details about their life, they are probably hiding some very serious things and will not disclose them until they are sure you are ‘all in’ (aka in love) before disclosing the information. RUN and RUN fast.

Part two: next week

unreasonable expectations

I have been blessed to have seen many things in my (not) so long life. One of the things that never cease to amaze me is the expectations of others in their future life partner(s).

I knew of woman who had a list of ‘must haves’ for the man she would marry.

movie star looks
6’3
spoke several languages
6 figure job
incredible body
top credit score
top education
intelligent
no kids

the problem: she was overweight, short, not that bright, bad credit, multiple kids by multiple men. you couldn’t tell her first language was English, she was unemployed, dropped out of high school, etc. you get the point. I would cringe every time she talked about how her ‘husband’ had to have this or that. Finally I asked her how did she come up with ‘list’. She talked about how she was ‘worth’ having this caliber of man. I pointed out that we are all ‘worthy’ of great caliber men HOWEVER how ‘great’ did we present ourselves to the men who were seeking us?

She did not understand anything I said. At that point, I decided to let the conversation go.

I have met men who talked about wanting to find a “good, church-going, god-fearing”woman to settle down with and have children. This would have been wonderful, if they went to church to find one. These men spent their time in strip clubs, after-hours joints, bars, swing clubs and parties having a great time. Now, let me just say that you can find all sorts of god-fearing women in any of the aforementioned places HOWEVER, while atypical, a woman going to church twice weekly and most of the day Sunday is not bent over naked on the pole Saturday evening at 10pm.

When I hear men and women making this ‘expectations’ of their future partners, I think of something I learned in Graduate School.

” You will not find an elephant in a bread basket”

If I’m a police officer looking for drugs during a drug raid, I’m not looking for elephants. I’m looking for signs of drugs, I’m looking for drug paraphernalia, I’m looking for cash, I’m looking for cash counting machines, I’m looking for guns and other signs to indicate this is a drug house/stash house. Am I looking for college textbooks? (unless its chemistry books) then probably not.

but you get my point.

while I may stumble upon expensive cars (as evidence of drug proceeds), I’m really looking for Drugs, Guns, Drug Paraphernalia and other such animals.

Why are so many people saying they are looking for drugs when they are really looking for elephants?

my theory is simple. we have bought into the Hollywood/marketing/PR Perfect person that we ‘must’ have to make our life complete.

No one is really asking (as far as I can tell) whether or not its a two-way street.

Reciprocation

Are YOU what you are asking for?

Do you really think a man with a 800 credit score wants a woman whose credit is so bad she can’t open a bank account?

Do you really think a woman with a Victoria Secret’s body would be interested in marrying a man who is 300lbs overweight?

Not to that that either one of the above situations could never happen, but the odds aren’t very high.

I have not problem with ANYONE having standards. Standards are a very good thing. Not everyone one is the one for you. Not everything that glitters is gold….

If Halle Berry, Beyonce, Gigi Hadid, Kourtney Kardasian, Kendall Jenner said in order to date them a man have to have a net worth of $14 million or more, trust and believe, men who have that minimum requirement will be more than happy to provide documentation from their banker and stockbrokers of their net worth.

and there would be a line around the corner. for each woman.

the rest of us aren’t that lucky to be able to make those types of demands.

HOWEVER

I have to ask, what are YOU bringing to the table besides your sex organs?

I have talked to too many young men and women, who when asked, brag about their sexual prowess or their looks. When I ask about things that would give a a hint of their character, values, dreams, goals and ambitions, I received blank looks and dismissive statements how my questions aren’t “relevant” or “don’t matter”. I always remind them that 1. looks and bodies fade and 2. there is a 7 year old who will be replacing you in a few years, so don’t get the game twisted.

Beauty won’t comfort you when your mother dies suddenly.

A nice body won’t matter when you can’t afford to feed your children.

Character, values, dreams, goals and ambition can’t be ignored because someone doesn’t conform to your idea of beauty or ideal body.

The man who accepts you for who you are might be 5-7 but he treats you as if you are gold.

A woman may be 30 lbs overweight, but supports your dreams and goals.

I’ve seem many man and women tolerate behavior I find abhorrent because their partner has a 6 figure job, good looking, graduated from a prestigious university.

Why?

because they have convinced themselves the trade-off is worth being with that particular person.

there are trade-offs and then there are absolutely nots.

only you can determine what is ‘unreasonable’ or not.

My rule of thumb is this:

Don’t ask anything of anyone else, that you do not have yourself.
