You are back on the dating scene after a serious break up. You’re enjoying the idea of some casual dating and getting back into the swing of things, but the relationship with your latest prospect is getting pretty serious. What’s the big deal? Well, dating this time around is a bit different because you are no longer on the market by yourself…you are now a package deal.
Dating after already having children can be reenergizing but also worrisome. In the midst of falling in love you are also burdened with questions: When should I introduce the kids to my new love? How? Should I talk to them about it first? What if they tell me don’t want to meet him, or worse, tell me they don’t want me dating anyone?
Introducing your children to your new partner is important. They will become a part of the child’s life as well as yours. The situation must be handled delicately, in the right time, and there are a few things you can do to make things go easier.
An affair is usually a symptom of other problems in a relationship. Now is the time for each of you to fully examine not only your relationship, but yourselves as well. Have we just run our course? Are we better off just as friends? Is there too much hurt to move on from this? A high percentage of the wronged partners will walk away and never look back, and then there are an impressive percentage of partners who decide to stay and give it another shot. Some relationships not only survive, but they actually grow in the aftermath of an affair. An affair challenges both partners to look at themselves and their relationship in a radically new way. Staying and trying to survive the betrayal and hurt is commendable but there are some things that need to be considered.
Whether you and your partner love each other unconditionally or whether the two of you fight every minute, your relationship is going down hill, and you feel like it's almost over. All relationships lose their sparkle and passion after a while and if you don't do something about it, you can easily become strangers and problems can surface. What can you do to get that "spark" back and have a thriving relationship again?
Have you ever dealt with a man that made you feel like you personally belonged to him? Not just the regular your my girl, I'm your man scenario but actually like an object? Has your mate ever become so enraged with jealousy that you were afraid how far she may go to secure your relationship. At times we may believe that jealousy is natural and maybe even "cute" however, there is a thin line between a llittle touch of the green eyed monster and being possessive.
Ladies, have you ever asked a man out on a date? Fellas, do you still walk around the car to open the door for your lady? These are just two examples of different styles of dating. In today's society there's a huge difference between relationship styles. Are you more traditional, a person that goes by the books? Or are you liberal, an outside the box dater willing to go against the status quo? Chime in with the ladies of OWWHH to find out your style of dating and which is going to keep you dating in 2012! Each and every Friday night chat with the ladies of OWWHH FROM 11PM-1AM ONLY ON WWW.BKS1RADIO.COM!
Whether you're young or old everyone wants someone to hold, share with, and love. For those who can't seem to find that special person or better yet someone they can build with they often turn to other forms of mingling to do so. Many women are journeying into this "problem" for the first time and others have tried time again, and simply can't strike gold. Women are constantly looking to find "a good man" to fit their standards, needs, or values even in instances where the relationship is based around "friends with benefits".
Could it be that these women are the problem or is it that they are looking in all the wrong places for their "Prince Charming", and ending up with the same no good men. It's said that, "wherever you find a man thats where he'll be all the time". Maybe thats true and maybe its not, but lets be real! Many woman aren't going to Church every Sunday trying to find a man that will "Put a Ring On It". When it comes down to it, finding a man usually brings women back to square one, the "Nightlife" also known as "The Club". The place where 99% of women go after their first breakup, the place where they can let loose, have fun, get drunk, and forget it all the next morning. If that doesn't work you better know they can count on their "girls" to drag them to another party, find themselves hooking up on a social network or dating site, speed dating out of desperation that all hope is lost, or letting their "friends" set them up with someone they feel is "Just Right". It may seem sad or lackluster to some, but thats reality.
NOT everyone has the patience or the time to keep waiting for love to come knocking on their door, and in most cases many women find themselves unconsciously looking for love, but at what point does looking become a man hunt? or At what point do women realize it's not about where they find it, but how they go about getting it. Maybe they're looking in all the wrong places, or maybe it's poor judgement and poor female intuition that keeps bringing them back to the same ol' dead end.
Social Networks have become a fantastic way for people to reconnect, and socialize around the world. Popular Networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have become viral as well as International brands. The more people that sign up the less people see of each other. Social media has become the most common communication tool since the cell phone. Aside from convenience, and popularity these networks are used by many as a stepping stone in entertainment. Social media sites/apps are not only great for communication, but also as a means to market, advertise, promote, and date, leading to our next point Social Temptation.
Many will say that dating has become a staple for many of these sites allowing users to change their relationship status from "it's complicated" to "divorced." Influencing many outcomes of relationships today from simple random comments, messages, or "likes" can mean the end for most men and women in relationships who can't control their urge to flirt, or post for attention.
For the other person in the relationship this can have a "by any means necessary" effect, and thus they begin to monitor their significant other or crush's activity on all social accounts. If lucky enough steal their passwords or identity in order to spy or trick friends and family. While some may find social networks a personal barrier, relationship problem, or personal playground, it is more so an extracurricular activity.

Special Guest: Blake Carrington
James Blake Carrington Gifted. Grounded. Grateful and genuine. The rarest of combinations given the goods. R&B/Hip-Hop singer, songwriter, arranger, record label starter, actor and driven entrepreneur, James Blake Carrington, a natural tenor, commands a five-octave range that stands hairs on neck and sends chills down spine. Born from life-altering news and an unbreakable resolve, the Harlem vocalist's forthcoming album, Be A Man will stick to the psyche, soothe souls and remind us of the greats who coupled uncanny talent with something nowadays lost: class.
Study his vox and hear Motown, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, some of Carrington's major influences. Feel the honesty of Musiq Soulchild, the grace of Maxwell, the control of Donny Hathaway. Blake's is a soulful, sultry, and unbelievably rangeful voice cultivated in church and now polished and poised for the masses.
On the streets of NYC, his peers gave him the name “Carrington.” Now, he’s the royal king of underground R&B. Carrington was recently diagnosed with Sarcoidosis and continues to shoulder the hardships. His full recovery was made through prayer, persistence, patience, and inspiration for the Be A Man album. He hopes 'Be A Man' inspires others to grow, adapt and better themselves.
He has shared the stage with, among others, Eric Roberson, Jagged Edge, Ne-Yo, Keyshia Cole, Akon, Tank, Ludacris, and Ciara. Foundation laid and dues paid, Blake takes his turn, the mic, and his place in music.
Grinding for years. Well respected by his peers. Deserving of your ears.
If one were to stroll down the corridors of Alvin Darling’s maze of a mind, they would find many locked doors. Those doors are closed to the many hurdles and heartaches Darling has overcome in his life. After almost forty up and mostly down years in the gospel music industry, Darling’s 2005 single “All Night” became a surprise Top 5 gospel radio smash and turned his swan song into a new beginning. It is with this new chapter in his life that Darling can now say “My Blessing is on the Way” (Emtro Gospel) on his new CD of the same name.
Darling has always been grateful for the little things in life. Growing up with virtually nothing, he appreciated the small blessings like his grandmother’s watchful eye. Raised in a Newark, New Jersey ghetto, his parents left him to be raised by his paternal grandmother, Lilla Frances. Darling’s parents never married. His mother was too young to raise a child and his father was just too busy. When asked if it was true that his father had sired 13 children, Darling cracks, “I stopped counting. I got brothers right here in New Jersey that I have never met.”
So, Lilla Frances was Mama, Daddy, brother and sister to Darling. “I thank God for my grandmother because she was pretty strict,” he concedes. “She was the reason why I was in the church and the reason why I was in the Pentecostal church which is a little different from just being in church. That got me in touch with the Lord because they more or less physically seek God. In those days, they had tarry meetings. They are very strict and it kept me from getting too wild in the world. Seeking God and praying all night long you can’t help but be more conscious of God and too tired to sin. ”
