Wow Where do I start?.. Well for my likes, Motorcycles, Bowling (Yeah, I roll 300's) and Pool are my sports. I am a father of 2 girls, who are completely the reason why I breathe.. My girls have inspired me to be the best in life at all things, not from the moment they were born, but from the moment they were conceived. Being a dad is the quintessential favorite part of my life. I also have a fascination with rescue and law enforcement. I was hired as a full-time fire rescuer the same week I was hired as an on call (not even part-time) radio personality. It’s obvious that I chose radio, and it indeed has been good to me, more so than I am to it. Radio broadcasting has always been my passion and was ultimately birthed into me by my late father who worked in radio for almost 50 years. So I guess you can say I got it honestly. I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure to have such a great career, which allows me to experience so much the average person will probably never do or see. I am truly grateful to God for this dream now reality lifestyle that I am blessed to have...To Him be The Glory...The Father, Teacher & Mentor

1. YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE LAST WORD
When you're in the heat of a debate or discussing a passionate subject, it's natural to want to get your point across. If you feel that you have something important to say or that you're right and the other person is wrong, you may want get that last word in as a way to punctuate your point and make your final argument as a way to end the debate. But to the other person, this could be seen as an immature way to try to control or dominate him, which is enough to leave him exasperated. Do this too much and he may give up and go away because no one wants to be in a relationship with someone who feels that the only way to feel secure when having a discussion is "win" by uttering that one last word.
2. YOU HAVE TO BE RIGHT
Along the same lines of having the last word, some people feel that if a person disagrees with them, it must be because they don't understand him or her; therefore, they'll keep debating or discussing the issue until they "win" and the other person gives in. These people have a hard time "agreeing to disagree," which can drive someone else insane. It's one thing to know that you're right (when dealing with facts especially), but another to need to be right. If you find that you're not satisfied until your mate says "you're right and I'm wrong" or "I agree with you," you may have some ego or esteem issues that need to be resolved. Otherwise, you'll find yourself alone...because ain't nobody got time for that.
3. YOU DEBATE EVERYTHING
With intelligence comes the ability to explain or defend your position on several issues. However, not everything needs to be discussed ad nauseum. Of course, polarizing topics like religion or politics can get anyone riled up, but you should not be having deep heated discussions about where to have dinner or what TV show to watch that night. If you find that you are always ready to argue about every little thing, you're probably grating your man's nerves and leaving him wondering why he even bothers with you.
4. YOU BEAT A DEAD HORSE
Okay, so he finally gives in and agrees with everything you say; still, that isn't good enough for you. There are some people who, even after you've conceded, can't seem to let go of the topic and go on and on even after the debate has ended. Nothing is more maddening than someone who isn't satisfied with the confession, the concession or the surrendering. She has to beat the point into the ground until the other person feels that compromising with this woman is out of the question and he's better off cutting his losses.
5. YOU'RE "MS. KNOW-IT-ALL"
The thing with most intelligent people is they tend to know that they're intelligent. Most smart folks are aware that they don't know everything, but then there are those who think that because they have a degree, they are somehow the expert on everything - especially when dealing with other people who may not have their same level of education. However, there is a difference between being intelligent and being educated and one does not beget the other. But to the "know-it-all," they feel it is their duty to teach everyone, whether others need their insight or not. If she has a big ego when it comes to her intelligence or education level, she may decide that a man is not smart enough for her; therefore, she needs to school him on everything from how to dress, which fork to use at dinner or how he should be investing his money. It doesn't occur to her that a man may be just as intelligent and as well- read as she is, which will infuriate any man who feels he doesn't need to be treated like a school boy.
6. YOU'RE ALWAYS CORRECTING HIM
Most "know-it-all's" can't wait to call out someone on a mistake and promptly correct him on it. Women who are smart and savvy see right through misinformation, or through men who are trying to impress them by spewing nonsense. If he's trying to deceive or pull the wool over her eyes, it won't work and he doesn't deserve to get away with it. However, for simple missteps from a man who has no hidden agenda, her ego shouldn't be so fragile that she feels she has to correct him in order to make him feel small or embarrassed. There is a way to enlighten someone without punishing or being disparaging. The woman who feels the need to correct someone else all the time in order to display her intelligence is really insecure, and that's not a challenge...that's just irritating.
7. YOU HAVE A SMART MOUTH
A woman to be reckoned with probably has no problem putting someone in his place. There is nothing wrong with that, but there is a classy way to do it. Most women with strong personalities are equipped with a sharp tongue and may not have figured out yet how to curb their sarcasm or quick wit. While no one should let anyone walk all over them, a person should be able to express him or herself without resorting to name calling, cussing, insults or any other verbal assault that isn't warranted just because there's a disagreement. Again, don't be a doormat; but don't wreak havoc on a man's ego simply because you feel like talking to him like he's a little boy. You're just provoking him to want to choke you out, and when it gets to that point, it's better if he just walks away. Respect is what most men crave, and if you can't give it with your words then there's no reason for him to want to stick around.
8. YOU'RE HARD TO PLEASE
Nothing is worse than a woman who can't be pleased. While some men welcome the thrill of trying to figure out what makes a woman smile, it gets old after a while when she complains about everything. The restaurant he took her to isn't fancy enough. The movie he chose was all wrong. The ring he surprised her with isn't big enough. It's always something. Sure, a woman likes what she likes and I'm not suggesting that a woman lower her standards or not have great expectations for herself and her man. But when a woman doesn't like anything her man does or nothing is ever good enough, he's just going to stop trying...and focus his attention and affections on a woman who will truly appreciate his efforts - not condemn or criticize them.
9. YOU NEVER ADMIT WHEN YOU'RE WRONG
Perhaps the most incensing thing a person can deal with while in a relationship is being with someone who can never admit when they're wrong. Strong, intelligent women are probably used to being right and take great pride in being able to win every argument. So when they find that maybe this time they've met their match, or that they truly don't know everything, it'll be hard for her to admit that she's flawed...and maybe not as smart as she thinks she is. You have to be careful with this type of woman, because even if she happens to be wrong, you'll never know it because she has an uncanny ability to build an argument to the point where she may actually convince you that you're wrong. But if her man is just as sharp as she is, he won't have time to deal with someone who can't admit that they've made a mistake. No one can be right ALL THE TIME and if she feels that she is, that means he's always wrong...and what guy wants to be wrong all the time? No relationship can survive that.
