Since planting a kiss on The Performer, I was on cloud nine. Not because I was fantasizing about my future wedding and mini-Sujeirys. On the contrary, I hadn't had a single dreamy thought. But because I was loving the new me! Then came a test. My phone rang. I didn't recognize the number but picked up anyway.
"Its Shaquan. What up gurl?!" He responded in a high-pitched voice. I laughed and shook my head, immediately aware that it was The Performer.
"Hey, how are you?" I asked.

I met this 22-year-old guy who wants to date me. I also want to date him, but the only problem is that he lost three of his front teeth. Other than that, he is cute. But I don’t know how to tell my family.

Just make sure your mom doesn’t cook costillitas the day you bring your boyfriend home. Something soft, like sopa or tamales, should do the trick. He, in turn, should smile as little as possible.

I remember how carefree I was during my college days. I would go to class (sometimes), hang out with my girls, chug-a-lug and flirt with every cute boy on campus. I was less serious and less intense, especially in the boy department. Oh, and did I mention I was a kissing slut?

I've never been the type of woman who needs constant attention from a man. I’ve spent over a year not dating—as in celibate! So why had I agreed to go on a date with Alex, a man who treated me well, but with whom I felt no spark during our six-month relationship? Was this just a cry for attention?
I wasn’t quite sure, so I decided to let Alex know what was on my mind.
“Maybe it isn’t a good idea that we hang out,” I began.
“Really? But I like hanging out with you. You’re great!”

For a single gal, the holiday season can bring a bit of the blues. Sure it feels wonderful to be with my semi-dysfunctional familia (I have a crotch grabbing aunt and many drunken uncles), but I find it difficult to enjoy the coquito and turkey wings when everyone around me is coupled off. I wish I had a man to wipe away the grease from my lip! And how about someone to tuck me in for a nap when the turkey and drinks do their job?

After sending that email to Mr. G, I just wanted to live my life. With that change of mentality came a change of energy. Just like that I felt open to everything and, because of this, men came a-knocking.
Exes started calling, trying to rekindle what once was. My first love even created an artistic portrait of one of my pictures because he was "inspired." Was it Elijah's way of showing me he wanted more than friendship, I wondered? Ah, who cares!
