    MC LYTE ON LOVE/RELATIONSHIPS/MARRIAGE: "I do want someone to love. I don't know that it has to be wrapped in marriage, even though that would be nice and I guess many women hope for that. What I do know is that I have ALOT of love to give and see with women, we want to make sure that whoever we're putting this love into is not only worthy but they not just gonna take it and go off" #relationships #life #loveadvice #rap #hiphop #lovelife #romance #love #boyfriend #girlfriend #marriage #single #dating #couples #tagafriend #wedding #wife #husband #bride #groom #howwomenlove #truth #currentsituation #mylife #beautiful #lovehim #bae

  • So it’s been thirteen years now that I have been a widow and I have dated a variety of men in that time. Short to tall. White collar to Blue Collar. College educated to High School graduates. Let me tell you…dating is the most exhausting experience!!! It’s a repetitive cycle of trying to show someone who you are and what you are about while learning who they are and what they are about.  If it does not work out between the two of you then you move on to the next situation and repeat the “this is who I am “ game and so on and so on.  I’ve always been an individual who placed a high price tag on my time, so that wasted dating time can be quite a pet peeve for me.

While I was married, I enjoyed having someone by my side who already knew that I was going to order two scoops of mint chip ice cream when we went to Baskin and Robbins, who knew when I was not feeling well that box of tea in the kitchen cabinet is what I needed, who knew the story behind the scar on my left knee and which jokes to tell that would make me laugh.

That is one of the things I miss about being married. Having someone in my inner space who knew me inside and out and who I knew inside and out.

  • My late husband was real handy. He could rebuild a car, install a garbage disposal, or build a fence if needed.  I on the other hand, was mortal enemies with a screwdriver and a hammer.  I ended up learning a lot from him about things I had no clue about. He would share his excitement about some new car part and detail all the inner workings of it and slowly I began to enjoy being a part of his hobbies.

Over the years as a widow and being single, I’m sure I would have made him very proud. I actually know what a stud finder is and how to use it. I’ve painted rooms all by myself. I’ve even acquired a toolbox with various sized wrenches and such. All things that I learned from him by enjoying what he enjoyed doing.

That is one of the things I miss about being married.  Having a partner to teach me new things (with love). #marriage #love #relationships #husband #wife #romance #dating #life #couples #bride #groom #reflection  #marriageadvice #relationshipadvice  #relationshiptips #manhood #single #divorced #engaged #datingtips  #blacklove #blackloveisreal #blackmarriage #dontboxmein #me #you #awesome

  • When my late husband and I started out, we rented a one bedroom apartment in Inglewood. I was in college and working part time and he was still in his entry level job for the City of Los Angeles, so our money was funny all the time. We had a bed, a TV, a desk and two armchairs.  Every day I would cook his dinner and serve it to him on a TV tray when he got home from work. All we could afford most of the time was chicken and I swear I cooked it for him every way possible. He never complained and happily would eat his dinner, chat with me, laugh and have good times.

When things got better for us financially, I still enjoyed the process of cooking dinner for him and that “sit down and talk” family time we shared. Standing in the kitchen cooking for him gave me a sense of expressing my love for/to him. It was a small portion of the way I cared for him.

That is one of the things I miss about being married. Having someone whose daily well-being that you played a vital role in.
