This is a hilarious video from Blimey Cow on things girls do to guys that need to stop.
New Web Series, Real Talk Relationships officially launched yesterday and their first episode dealt with cheating. It is a pretty interesting episode so check it out. It is hosted by Tolu Odukoya Ijogun and Jimmy Odukoya (Pastor J).
I was supposed to be doing really serious stuff when this came apouring. I found it totally /absolutely /excruciatingly hilarious that I dumped priority to share this.
You know what a situationship is, right?
And I don’t even know how best to put it without sounding offensive. Damn that person who said if you can’t explain a subject clearly to a 3year old, then you don’t really know the subject.
Anyways, my excuse is that I didn’t come here to define things.
I came to share a picture that was painted in my head, a scenario that had me LOLing to myself (yes, LOLing is a legit word now)
You know there are people who are afraid to put labels on stuff; define what is and what isn’t, for fear of overthinking things and misunderstanding things and getting disappointed /rejected or because they feel it’s too awkward /late to bother.
So, say Boy A and Girl B are in a situationship, not a relationship, because neither can remember getting verbally asked out. So they are shifty around the B word (boyfriend here) and G word (Girlfriend too), (I’m not saying that there has to be a verbal asking, but I’m sure you [...]
Once you’ve decided you need to end a relationship, you will have some other matters to think and pray about. I would like to offer some advice on three important questions most people ask themselves when they have to part ways with someone who has been valuable in the past:“How should I think about this situation?” “What do I say when I actually bring an end to the relationship?” “How do I respond to others when they ask why so-and-so and I aren’t friends anymore?” This applies to business partners, ministry colleagues, and many other types of alliances.
How should I think?
I want to encourage you in two ways as you think about ending a relationship. First, be very clear about where God is leading you and why that requires the relationship to change. This understanding will give both you and the other person a clear rationale for ending a relationship, and the boldness to do it. Second, you must understand and believe that just as God brought the person with whom you are ending a relationship into your life, God will bring others into your life as well. Be patient, be prayerful, and be watchful, because he will bring you the people you need.
What should I say?
Let me suggest several things to consider if you have to tell someone you need to end a relationship.Be sincere. People know when someone is not being authentic. Be honest, but speak with love. The need for honesty does not [...]
The phrase “it is not good for man to be alone” in Genesis 2 has been interpreted differently by many and has been the reason why certain people act the way they do. For some, it is a clear explanation of our strong sexual urge; others think it a reason why one should always be in a relationship and for many, once you fit the description of what the world defines as a man, then you can do what you want, when you like and how you like it. After all you are a ‘man’. Biology teaches us that once your voice breaks and becomes deep, once you begin to produce sperm cells and grow beards, you are a man; at least a young man. Society accepts that once you have a job or generate income, you are a man. Whatever our definition of who or what a man should be, all these point to the reason why a guy decides it’s time to be in a relationship or get married. While many of the reasons might seem logical, it is important to know that it is quite different from what God had in mind when he was talking about the kind of man that should not be alone.
Firstly, this guy had a real relationship with God, the first relationship he had was with God and he was also submitted to God’s will and directives.
Secondly, understand that this man (Adam) God was talking about understood his reason for existence; he understood his purpose and assignment and he was working it out.
Thirdly, it was in going about his assignment that the [...]
