In a world filled with internet gangsters, reality TV, manufactured food, and hair weave. It has become really hard to know what's real and what's fake. This principle holds true when trying to determine real friends vs. fake friends. People will smile in your face all day long, but then turn around and betray you with ease. Thankfully not everyone is like that, but how can you tell?

Time and time again I have seen this scenario pop up. Girl meets boy, girl has sex with boy, girl and boy don't work out, girl likes his friend, and then girl has sex with friend hoping for a relationship to come. Believe it or not it happens a lot. What always surprises me is the girls belief that the second guy will actually take her serious.

To start this off there is a quote I found online by Roger de Bussy-Rabutin which states “Absence is to love as wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small and kindles the great.” Let that marinate for a second. The topic of long distance relationships comes up all the time with people seeking advice and guidance. Is it a smart move? Can it really work?

"Why can't I find a good man"..."All men are dogs"..."Why does dating have to be so difficult?".  I hear this from plenty of women all the time.

Will he respect her or simply place her in the "booty call" zone for eternity? I have heard many varying opinions on this issue. I have also seen many different outcomes.

Time and time again I get to speak to women who are trying to figure out where they stand in their relationship. Sometimes it isn't even an official relationship. Just a situation with a man whose words and actions don't seem to line up. They are left confused because they want to believe the words coming out of his mouth are true. Yet when the time comes

Letting that woman run all over you. Following that man to see where he has been going. Impregnating her or letting him get you pregnant even when they aren't aware of your intentions. The list goes on and on. Ask that person why they did it and many will utter the phrase "love makes you do crazy things". I'm sure you have heard it before. It doesn't matter

Ok so let's set the scene. You have a guy out with some of his boys. It could be a club, the mall, or anywhere else you can think of. He sees a beautiful woman with a couple of her friends and he decides he wants to make a move. So he approaches her and says "excuse me miss, you caught my eye and I think you look real good. I was hoping we could talk and
