Dear Bobo: About your six reasons for the break up


My colleague heard about this breakup text on the radio this morning. I took a moment to check it out.

Apparently, the lady's friend tweeted this screenshot out of the breakup text, allegedly. 

My friend just sent me this break-up message she received after 7 weeks of dating. My fav reason for split is #3



Then the lady who received the breakup text spoke to an Australian media source.

He was 30, had a job, a car and a house. Certainly not what I normally manage to attract, so I thought I was onto something. He was a bit of a nerd, perhaps a bit quiet, but a genuinely nice guy all the same.

About the wedding:
He’d indicated that he was upset he couldn’t attend with me, but we were only very casual as far as I was concerned and the guest list had been finalised months ago, there wasn’t necessarily an option to take a plus one.

And the cat:
I guess I did tell the cat to “F— off.”


When my colleague told me about the text, I felt like the dude was extra sensitive and the lady dodged a bullet. 

First of all, any dude with a cat is super sensitive, needy, and emotional. Cats are horrible pets! They climb all over everything, have attitudes, and demand attention. Like pet, like owner... 


Secondly ...if she hasn't changed the relationship status...y'all might not be in an actual committed relationship. Or you're dealing with an adult woman who isn't into petty things. This dudes seems socially underdeveloped. 

Thirdly, How are you making demands on someone's time after only dating them for 1 month and 3 weeks? Bruh...can y'all grow to a point of where you become a priority? Can she have a life outside of you? How have you managed, in 7 short weeks, to work yourself into a tizzy over someone you're in a brand new situation with? I mean heck... When you move you get at least 3-6 months to change your drivers license. Ease up! 

If you don't know her well enough to be comfortable with her past (including not knowing every detail of her sexual past) then you may not know her well enough to make any demands. Chill ...

Every resume is not indicative of how a person will behave in a relationship. Some people can be responsible adults and quite loose emotionally. I know this lady is happy she found out how weird this guy was before she became emotionally invested.

A Sense of Safety (Guest Post)

A Sense of Safety: Protection for Survivors of Domestic Violence February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month . Many young adult DV relationships begin during the teen years. When involved in a DV relationship, a person's safety is very often in peril. Nora Hood guest blogs for YBBG in this post. A Sense of Safety: Protection or Survivors of Domestic Violence. Approximately 20,000 calls are made to the National Census of Domestic Violence Services every day. It’s a fact of life for domestic violence survivors who live in fear that a former partner will show up without warning, seeking revenge. Unfortunately, the vast majority of victims haven’t prepared a plan of action, or had security or monitoring devices installed. Protection is a major concern in light of the fact that three women are killed by a partner every day. Providing for your safety and that of your children can seem an overwhelming objective for domestic violence victims who are just trying

Wanetta Gibson's video confession

Wanetta Gibson photo: blacksportsonline Wanetta Gibson was a sophomore, when she met up with Brian Banks, a junior star linebacker, in a stairwell at Long Beach Polytechnic High. They stood in the stairwell making out, and then went their separate ways. That make out session led to an accusation of rape. Watch the video to see Brian tell what happened to him after their make out session. Then you will see the undercover video of Wanetta, ten years later, saying a rape never occurred. Wanetta Gibson reached out to Banks on Facebook, of all places, wanting to "let bygones be bygones".  He set up a meeting with her to be secretly recorded, confessing that a rape never happened.  She met him, but refused to go to court, and didn't even give him the courtesy of an apology. We now know that Brian went to prison off of, what I consider, poor legal advice.  His attorney allegedly told him he would be perceived negatively because he was a big black guy,

Brian Banks, falsely accused of rape by Wanetta Gibson

Brian Banks celebrates with his mama. Photo from LaTimes UPDATE A comment posted below led me to Brian's website  http://brianbanks.org/the-incident/  . There, I read the story from his perspective.  According to him, he and Wanetta Gibson never had sexual intercourse.  They merely fooled around.  At the time he was sixteen years old, which makes his incarceration even more atrocious.  You can continue reading the original post I made below. ______________________________________________________ He was only 17 years old in 2002, and a hot commodity on the football field. One day he links up with a classmate, and they have sex. When the girl's mother finds out, Brian Banks is arrested and charged with rape and kidnapping. He faced 41 years in prison. His attorney advised him to plead no contest to serve less than a quarter of that time. Brian Banks relents. Meanwhile the girl, Wanetta Gibson, continues to keep up the charade.  Her mother eventually sues the Long Bea
