Why Independent Women Struggle with Dating

4/17/2021
It's our season finale! This season we talked a lot about how men and women are different-- from how we express ourselves to how we receive feedback. One thing is clear from our previous episodes: when women and men don’t understand our differences we struggle in relationships because friction is inevitable. Though men and women are different, I think we need each other. That is oftentimes difficult to see with so many women advocating for equality and taking on the head of household role....

Men and Women Express Emotion Differently

4/4/2021
We can give off the wrong impression sometimes, and some of us more often than others. I’ve been told I’m nonchalant or unfazed, and it can come across to other people the wrong way. Even when I’m trying to be more expressive, I don’t think I demonstrate it as strongly as I think I do. It does lead to an interesting topic of conversation, though. Today, Pops and I talk about sensitivity among men and women, which of the sexes is more expressive, and how men need to feel appreciated. But the...

Men Don't Like Women to Challenge Them

3/28/2021
I have this theory that men don’t like to be challenged. I’ve found myself asking men questions that make them uncomfortable. Not sure if it has been because they’re not expecting them or ready to answer, but some of my questions have caused men to shut down conversations I’ve tried to start. What’s at the root of it, though? In today’s episode, I discuss this with Pops and relate it back to the book I mentioned last week in episode 11. We talk about how differently men and women perceive...

Men are From Mars, Women Are From Venus

3/21/2021
Men and women are inherently different: we communicate differently, we think differently, we even express our emotions differently. Those differences, however natural they are, are often forgotten in relationships. We often want our partners to be more like us which causes frustration when we’re at odds thanks to those differences. I’ve recognized those differences in my relationship and even started reading a book about how men and women are different, called Men Are From Mars, Women Are...

White Dad, Black Daughter, and Conversations About Race

3/14/2021
This week wraps up our interview with L’aigner. In part two, we talk about how she navigates difficult conversations about institutional racism and the experiences of black people living in America with her white father. We shift the topic for a bit to discuss history’s perception of black people in the media. Then, L’aigner touches on her father’s experiences with face-to-face prejudice as a white man who likes dating black women and whether or not she should feel empathy for him. You’ll...

Black Male Privilege

2/21/2021
We’re back with Pops and my cousin Dana to continue our lively discussion about black male privilege. In part 1 of this conversation, I define black male privilege to get us on the same page, and Pops and Dana express their feelings on if they agree that black men are more privileged than black women. We got into issues about men needing to feel in charge and assert power, traditional lines of gendered responsibility possibly being erased, the possibility of recent history slowly being...

The Fantasy of Marriage

2/13/2021
Valentine’s day is here and for some it’s an exciting weekend, but for others it’s a regular day. Regardless of whether you’re celebrating or not, you know that V’Day is a super commercial holiday with a lot of hype around it. It’s one that perpetuates the fantasy and romanticizing of love and relationships— impacting how we all think about love and what we should be doing in relationships. In this episode we’re putting the fairytale of love and relationships aside and talking about the...

He Needs to Feel Like a Man

2/7/2021
Get ready for a lively discussion this week! I’m super excited for today’s episode. It’s a follow-up of our last episode when Pops and I talked about how black women take care of and help black men before themselves. We aligned on the fact that history is mostly told from the perspective of men and we agreed that women, of the two sexes, are naturally more nurturing. These two takeaways will drive us into this conversation, but we’ll take it a bit further. One of the things that came up in...

How Society Silences Women

1/31/2021
We talk a lot about men and women and the dynamics between them in relationships. But I don’t think we’ve talked about it like we do in this episode. Today’s show is inspired by a few conversations with friends and one in particular with my boyfriend. He had a call with a community group and was surprised to hear from black women that they often feel they’re at the bottom of the societal totem pole. I was shocked to hear that he’d never heard that sentiment before. So I wondered why that...

How do daddy issues impact romantic relationships? What’s it like to be expecting a new child while still healing the relationship with your father? How difficult is it to talk to your parents about parenting, when you don’t trust their opinions or how they’ve shown up for you in the past?

Dealing with Missed Expectations

It’s been a while, but we’re very excited to be back and starting the new year off with another season! To kick things off, we’re picking up right where we left off last season.
