Love + Dating


May 7, 2012So you have a man… But should you stay in a relationship that’s making you miserable on all days that end in the letter “Y”? Alright, I don’t know you, Made Woman, but I do know that the dilemma of staying or leaving is frustrating. I love Keyshia Cole’s jam “Let it Go” just as much as the next tortured woman, but it still didn’t give me the…
April 23, 2012Dating.  It’s probably 1 part fun and 5 parts exhausting.  Getting to know a guy and figuring out what he’s about is a PROCESS.  Sure, first impressions can be telling, but I know that I have written people off at first--only to come around later once they broke my ironclad walls down; or have been initially attracted to some smooth-talking sex god with killer abs--only to find out…
April 23, 2012If you’re anything like me, the first thing I think about when a man asks me out is, “what in the world am I going to wear?”  Made Women are always fly, but the first date outfit should involve a bit more thought and effort than your everyday look-- you want to make a lasting impression!What you wear on a first date depends on where you are going.…
April 9, 2012We here at Made Woman write a lot of articles, especially articles geared towards women. But we haven’t forgotten about our male readers. I know that this world of technology has made it almost pointless to pick up a phone and actually call a woman because you can just text, email, facebook, instagram, tumblr, tweet or skype her to get your point across. But, texting can be a…

March 26, 2012 First comes love, then comes marriage. But between those comes the day most women dream about their whole lives: the wedding day. Even if you have yet to find Mr. Right, chances are you've spent more than one boring lecture or slow day at the office daydreaming about the designer gown you'll walk down the aisle in, or the beachfront property where you'll say your vows. A wedding…

You thought you looked great in that dress.You're pretty sure he found the stories about your dog hilarious.You're certain that he didn't notice you got a little tipsy on all those cocktails.  But then he doesn't call. Or text.Or email. Cue: calling your girlfriends to dissect every. single. thing he said and every. single. thing you did. Why didn't…
March 12, 2012 Men. We may never understand the way they think. With their sneaker obsessions, secret double lives as online gamers, and–of course—their football gods, they are basically a different species. But what if you had the chance to look into the mind of a man? Some of the things they think about women might surprise you. We asked a bunch of guys the questions you always wanted to know…
March 12, 2012In our high heels and after 5pm attire, we confidently filed into a dimly lit downtown lounge. Instead of the sexy vibe we had expected, we walked into an awkward silence, with most guests sitting alone or huddled with the groups of friends they had come with. My three girlfriends and I briefly scanned the room before ordering martinis at the bar, grabbing a few of the greasy,…
February 27, 2012 Log on the internet, pick up a magazine or turn on the TV and you are likely catch a story about dating and relationships. Who’s dating who, who’s newly engaged, who got caught cheating… it’s entertaining and fun to gossip about. Add an interracial factor to the story and interest becomes especially piqued, opinions clash and sometimes conflicts become heated. Why? Why, in this day and age,…
January 30, 2012When I first sat down to tackle the topic of how to gracefully handle a situation where a significant other cheats on you, I was a bit stumped. I just kept hearing Carrie Underwood’s words in my head: “I dug my keys into the side of his pretty little souped-up 4 wheel drive, carved my name into his leather seats, I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights,…
February 13, 2012There's so much anxiety that surrounds a first date.  Will I like him? Will he like me? Will he be The One?  At the very least, you hope you don’t end up stuck in awkward silence hell for three hours. Although you never know how a date will ultimately turn out, there are some crucial preparations before--and necessary actions during--your date to turn it into a successful mission.…
January 3, 2012We live in an age where polygamists reign supreme. Hugh Hefner has three girlfriends. Kody Brown of TLC's "Sister Wives" has four wives. Lil' Wayne has "Project Twins": two children, the same age, by two different women. While their reasons for being with more than one lady may differ – Hefner's lifelong fear of commitment, Brown's adherence to a religious tenet and Wayne's apparent aversion to contraception –…
December 19, 2011Dear Guy Who Could Use Some Help Pullin’ The Ladies,I’m writing this letter to you to help you out. You’ve probably got all the qualities a woman wants: good job, passable personal hygiene, education; but you can’t get the girl you REALLY want to give up the digits AND go on a date with you. Cue violins.... Listen, before you go crying into a pint of Ben &…
December 19, 2011A lot goes into a successful relationship with your guy. Trust, honesty and respect rank at the top of the list, but let’s not forget one other important piece of the puzzle: getting along with his friends. Your guy's friends will always be a part of his life, so ladies, if you get in with his friends from the beginning, your life will be a whole lot easier.…
