#21 What he said: A conversation with my guy friend

Ok you guys, I'm back with the conversations.  Now I'm going to do as many via video as I can.  So if you have any guys in the NC area, who would be good for a topic, let me know!



Today's Guy: D. Lee
How I know him: Our mutual friend suggested we talk about an issue D. Lee was having.  He introduced us at church.
Topic:  The dreaded FRIEND ZONE



So D. Lee and I discussed the friend zone.  Do you feel that the "friend zone" is the place potentially good mates go to fizzle out?  How often have you placed a guy in the "friend zone" because you just didn't feel a "spark" or "chemistry"?

Guys, do you think women miss out on good potential mates by placing guys into the friend zone?

Or is the friend zone not so bad after all?  Is it not better to be friends with your mate first?  Or is the friend zone totally different than being friends leading to mates?

Curves Connect: Online dating for real people seeking real relationships

Many people find online dating frustrating. Between the lies and game playing, the fear of being "catfished" and the sensory overload they have decided that online dating is a waste of time.

Guy Secrets: He treats his friends better than you

I know, the title of this blog post may have caused a screw face with some of you. However...many women often complain about how much time their men spends with friends.
There's a reason for that... If your man spends more time away from you and with his friends... It's because he likes them and feels obligated to you.
That may seem a little crazy, but someone really can love you, but not like you very much. If your relationship is more like a chore than a good time...trust me, your dude will always look for an escape. He will take on more hours at his real job, join an extra rec league, hand out with his boys more, etc.
There is a cure for that, though... If you and your boo have a genuine friendship...enjoy similar activities, can talk and joke with each other, really find joy in each other's personalities...he will actually want to spend time with you.
More than that, when a dude considers you a friend, he feels more free and less tied down. Honestly, dudes secretly de…

Husband material

Husband material... It was something my college friends labeled my college boyfriend. They would say, "Girl he is husband material, you'd better hold onto him," as I looked at them dumbfounded. What made him "husband material," exactly?

As a matter of fact, what is "husband material" anyway? What does that even mean? The way I figure it, being husband material requires more than great physical attributes, though those don't hurt. It means someone who can actually sustain a healthy relationship. It is more than going to church every Sunday, paying tithes and being on active duty in church ministry, though many a church girl swoons over such actions.



Good decision-maker
To be husband material, a man has to have a track record of making good decisions that far outnumber his bad decisions. I mean, we all make mistakes, but multiple "mistakes" are not mistakes at all, they are more like habits. Furthermore, to meet husband material criteria, a…
