In my opinion, friendships grow in the same manner as other relationships. There is a courtship or getting to know you phase.

Black Women: My Pursuit of Happiness

I love myself. I am relaxed about it. I am mostly cheerful, generous, vain, conceited, selfish, don’t suffer pangs of guilt, and I like women who are this way too. In men, this is a no-no. I love being a woman. If I could be reincarnated, I wouldn’t hesitate with my choice: same person, same […]

Shyness and Social Avoidance

I tend to make plans for the weekend, starting with Friday. The list of events are interesting, sometimes free, and throughout the multi-state area I live in: Philly, Eastern Penn., NYC, and all of New Jersey.
