1. You know where you stand. You are his girlfriend or you are a girl he’s dating but either way he’s not scared to define it. He’s not afraid that a girl will cry and run away if she doesn’t hear what she wants to, he wants a mature woman because he is a mature man.

2. You don’t have to prod him to become a real adult. He’s self motivated to improve on his own. If there’s an area of his life that needs improvement, he’s working on it long before you notice it.

3. Texting with him is peaceful. Sometimes you have conversations. Sometimes you make plans. But it’s never a power struggle of who initiates and who texts lasts. It’s not fishing for compliments or security. It’s simply a short form of communication.

An open letter to Kobe Bryant

LETTER TO KOBE BRYANT signed BY AN ANGRY BLACK MAN!
As my Brother SHAKA so eloquently put it….. “You have the right to stand on the sidelines in this battle for full equality and equal treatment under the law.

But, if you are considering walking out that door  be sure to keep those bags put until you have checked to make sure there is not anything else that may need to be addressed.

Chances are you may not be any happier with your next partner…
