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

USE "I" INSTEAD OF "YOU"
For the Women:
You're told that, when expressing anger/sadness/disappointment to your partner, you should say, "I feel this way" rather than "You make me feel this way." But most intelligengt men are onto this by now, and just feel like you're patronizing them. Men can take the heat: just tell them, "You messed up. Here's how you can fix it." Your emotions can be intimidating to them. But talking about their actions and how they can fix things - that's something they can understand.
DON'T GO TO BED ANGRY
For Both Men and Women:
Anybody who says they never go to bed angry quickly wraps up their arguments with half-hearted conclusions, that actually fix nothing, and they end up fighting about the same thing the next night. Your arguments and issues don't care that you need to go to sleep in 90 minutes. Some problems take hours or days to resolve - rushing the resolution for the sake of some shuteye rarely lends itself to well thought out, sustainable solutions.
BE AN ENDLESS SOURCE OF SUPPORT TO YOUR PARTNER
For Both Men and Women:
Of course you should be supporting your partner in his endeavors by being emotionally supportive, available for discussions, and physically present at things that matter to him. However, if you're always sacrificing what you want/need to do in order to be a support to your partner, that's not a balanced relationship. You need to work on your career/spend time with your friends/have alone time so that you can have the energy to be a real, energized support system to your partner. It's okay to say no sometimes to attending an office party/conference/football game etc.
ALWAYS SAY WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND
For the Women:
We have a million thoughts run through our minds every day. But the truth is, not all of these thoughts are in line with our long-term goals and desires. Acknowledge your thoughts and feelings to yourself, but be smart about those that you share verbally. For example, have you been thinking a lot about an ex recently? That's okay. Do you want to get back with that ex? Do you want to break up with your current guy? No? Well then expressing those thoughts is not in service of your long time goals or desires. You're having a weird bout of thinking about an ex. So what? Your partner does not need to know.
"LOVE MEANS NEVER HAVING TO SAY YOU'RE SORRY"
For the Men:
In an ideal world, anytime you slip up in your words, your partner completely understands where you're coming from, what you meant to say, and all the inner workings of your brain that led you to the mishap. But your partner is not in your brain. And that doesn't mean you're not compatible, or that your partner doesn't know you. People just can't be expected to read your mind, when you're being - well - a jerk. Even if you didn't mean to do something wrong, even if you think your partner's feelings are unreasonable, saying you're sorry means simply that you care that your partner has been hurt. Apologies aren't always about being reasonable - they're about showing compassion.
BE WITH THE MAN WHO'LL LOVE YOU AT YOUR UGLIEST
For the Women:
We agree with this rule, but we don't think you should push it. Some women go on first dates with no makeup on and bland clothes just to test the level of superficiality of their date. But the truth is physical attraction is the gateway to emotional attraction. Most people cannot take the interest to love you on the inside if they're just not feeling what's happening on the outside. And come on: is it really all that bad if a guy thinks you're a brick house?
WAIT X AMOUNT OF TIME TO HAVE SEX
For the Women:
Look: if having sex was going to make a guy no longer like you, then that's all he ever wanted in the first place. Men aren't idiots: if a guy can tell you're an honest, interesting woman of substance, he's not going to forget all that just because you sleep with him. If a guy likes you, he likes you. Men do not judge women for sleeping with them nearly as harshly as women judge themselves. I'm not saying jump into bed with every guy you have a good first date with. But don't subscribe to odd and strict time frames like X amount of dates or 3 months.
DON'T DATE THE LAST "TYPE"
For the Women:
There is something to typecasting, but most apply that word to the wrong set of traits. It's fine to look for a guy who is generous, thoughtful, ambitious and social because the last guy was none of those things. But don't look for a guy who absolutely doesn't work in finance, because the last guy did. There are all sorts of types of character traits underneath those superficial "types" your friends refer to. Give everyone who seems good a chance, regardless of their appearance/profession/hobbies and so on.
WAIT X AMOUNT OF TIME TO CALL/TEXT/HANG OUT AGAIN
For Men and Women:
If a guy/girl likes you, and then suddenly decides he/she doesn't, all because you called him/her the day after a date, he/she never really liked you. If you and a guy/girl have a good chemistry going and genuinely are excited to talk or see each other soon after having done so, go for it! Any guy/guy who subscribes to the wait X amount of time rule is either afraid of commitment, or not that into you, and neither of those are good. A guy/girl who really likes you and is ready to explore something won't be afraid of a "premature" text or request to hang.
IF YOU WANT TO FIND LOVE, STOP LOOKING FOR IT
For both Men and Women:
There is some truth to this in the sense that, no matter what, you should continue pursuing your career, partaking in your hobbies and leading an active, happy social life - these shouldn't be put aside so you can start a 24/7 search for love. However, some people take this rule too far, and avoid anything that is blatantly in the search for love, like speed dating, online dating, blind dates, singles bars and so on. You should be open to meeting someone, and putting yourself in situations where that can happen.
DON'T DATE OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE
For both Men and Women:
We just don't like the term "league" at all. Nobody is better or worse: people are just different. Some people perceive there is a league above their own, and that's just because they consistently go after a type that is very different from themselves - a type that is not compatible with them - and the rejection begins to feel like rejection from some "league." If you're constantly trying to date super athletic/health fanatic guys, and yet you yourself would rather relax on the couch on a Saturday, and do enjoy a cocktail or two each night, as each of these men realize you're not compatible and leave you, you'll feel you weren't good enough for them. But no, you just failed to accept your differences. Translation: know what works for you and not just what seems good.
NEVER DATE SOMEONE WHO'S BEEN SINGLE LESS THAN X AMOUNT OF TIME
For both Men and Women:
You can detect when someone is an emotionally sound, whole and happy person. And some people are, even if they're only a month out of a relationship. Not every breakup leaves a person devastated, incomplete, confused and weak. Some breakups are amicable. Some people do emotionally check out of relationships long before they end. Don't write a guy off who you have amazing chemistry and compatibility with, all because he just broke up with his girlfriend a month ago.
WAIT TO INTRODUCE A GUY TO YOUR FRIENDS
This is one of the least sensible rules around. You learn so much valuable information about a guy from seeing how he interacts A) In social settings and B) Around people who are important to you and contain character traits you enjoy. Inviting a new guy to a friend's party doesn't mean you want to marry him! But imagine if the two of you had a great few months together in private, and then you took him around your friends only to realize they bump heads horribly? Game over. Find out sooner rather than later how a guy melds with your world.
"""""Hello, this is like, totally embarassing for me, but I have a really hard time reaching orgasm. I don't get an orgasm from sex, I have to stimulate myself! My boyfriend feels like a "lesser man" because he can't give me an one. I am actually kind of ashamed, cuz maybe something's wrong with me. I really have no idea. I know this bothers him and I don't want to end up losing him because he feels like he doesn't please me. I really want to know if your audience thinks it would good if I sort of fake from time to time. Like what if he's really able to tell? I just want to know what men and women think. I'm stuck at what to do here and it's too much for him to talk with me about it, because I know he feels embarrassed as a guy.
Thanx a bunch, and please keep my nama private.""""""
AHHHHHHIGHT LADIES? How many of you fake it to please your mate? Do you think your guy can tell if you do? Do you do it to end bad sex? Lastly, do you think more woman fake orgasms with men, than those who actually have them with a male partner? My fellas, chime in too. #GoIn

Thirty Seven Percent of Men Think Women with Similar Faces are More Attractive
In this study, men were shown a selection of four photographs of new women, which included photos of women whose faces had been digitally manipulated to look more like the participating males.

Ahight here we go, last one for the week. It's not a letter from a listener, but it's a comment I came across on a website that was speaking on this Jason Collins story that's been in the news too much this week. Ahight, dude came out, said he was gay. He's a NBA player, and Black, So it's extra in the news, because he was the first dude to come out in the sport of basketball. Dude was engaged to a female and had been in a relationship and she had no clue he was doing dudes. Yeah, that shit's messed up! However, that situation led to some comments from some ladies who followed this story. Which one comment is going to lead to my question to you ladies. Check em out below:
McGrady on Bossip.com writes: "Im sure the signs were there... but all she saw was dollar signs. She needs to go get checked for HIV immediately!!"
The guest on Bossip.com writes: "I wouldn't want to see anybody hurt like this. 8 years of this woman's life. Using up her child bearing years. These are crazy times. What is going on in today's world with men?"
Kellie on Bossip.com writes: "Yes I hate that this happened to ANY woman but darn glad it didn't happen to a Black woman. Black women go through far too much now. The worst thing about being a Black woman is Black men.
Ok, the 1st two comments, I can understand, but the 3rd is disheartening as hell. """""The worst thing about being a Black woman is Black men.""" So my question is, do you feel that the Black relationship, Black Love, and family has no hope? Do you agree with her, the worst thing about being a Black woman is being in a relationship with a Black man?
