This is an actual conversation that took place between myself and a staffer (supplied by the venue) at one of my events:
Guy: C’mon son, I know you’re married, but don’t tell me you ain’t smashin’ none of these hotties that be comin’ to yo events?
Guy: C’mon son?
Guy: You crazy Paul, you crazy in the head… even if I was married I would be runnin’ all through them hoes.
Me: That’s because you haven’t grown up yet.
If I got a penny every time someone told me they are “waiting on their Boaz,” my net worth would be greater than Mark Zuckerberg’s.
He’s not going to knock on your door.
But let me tell you who is, all his brothers: Broke-az, Dumb-az, Ratchet-az, Lazy-az, Cheatin-az, and Use-you-up-and-leave-yo-az. (more…)
I have a love-hate relationship with online dating. On one hand, we can’t deny it’s creating marriages but on the other hand, we can’t deny it’s creating headaches…big, serious, migraine ones.
My firm manages dating accounts for our clients and over the years, I’ve witnessed just about all the good and bad online has to offer. Sure, having clients meet their spouse or someone who becomes a great friend happens but more often than not, the result is different. The frustrating part is so many people online initially appear promising but do just one thing so wack, there’s no possibility of a comeback.
Enter “Mr. Diplomat”.
I told the moderator of a panel I was on: “falling in love with potential is a mistake.” The moderator looked at me like I was crazy. He gave me the side-eye and said: “I don’t agree at all, Michelle Obama married for potential and look at her now.”
My jaw dropped to the floor, what a ridiculously misinformed comment.
The truth of the matter is when 25 year-old Michelle Robinson met 27 year-old Barack Obama he had the following in his favor:
Love does not have an on/off switch (and whoever invents such a thing will instantly become the richest person on the planet).
When we are not interested in someone it is obvious but when we are, it can be confusing. Is it love, lust, infatuation, or just thirst?
Well be confused no more. Here are 12 easy questions to help you determine if you are actually in love. While each one individually might not necessarily mean love, if you answer “yes” to 6 or more of the following questions, it’s official, you’ve got the love jones!

As my firm’s matchmaking client base expands (especially among women), our need for more men also increases. Starting today, we’re launching a new summer 2013 referral program aka “Operation M.A.N (Men Are Needed).”
Not long ago, when I worked in investment banking, at exactly 7:30pm on Sundays, I would get serious anxiety just thinking about the workweek ahead. I didn’t like my job. Actually, I hated it. My anxiety was so bad that my body would cramp and my attitude always turned crappy. It got to the point where I couldn’t enjoy Sunday dinner with my family. It was terrible.
