29) Who is your closest or most special friend that you’ve never met and what do they mean to you? How did you cross paths? Talk about how you “met” them: Facebook, Twitter, an online support group, etc.
Does God count? If so, He’s the only relationship that will never ever need to be explained.
I’d have to say Jeneille. She writes for the magazine. She came on has a writer and then became our beauty editor and social media manager. I found her blog through a Caribbean blog directory. I realized early on that she had great purpose. She was here to help me grow in so many ways, professionally and personally. She has me doing this stupid challenge! I accept her season in my life, I depend on it at times for work or just for some one to hear me vent. I’m grateful.
30) Write a letter to your future mate saying whatever you want to say
Dear Future Mate,
Be patient with me, help me, protect me and honour me and our potential. Make me laugh, make me smile and cherish me.
I’ll protect you, I’ll pray for you and I’ll challenge you. I’m your rib. You bleed, I bleed.
Hold on because it will get bumpy. Just don’t lose sight of we.
It’s our world, abundantly.
I’ve been slacking on my posts. I’ve been so busy, without internet and I’m now playing catch up…bare with me!
21) How would you pitch a reality show about yourself? To what network?
Definitely on E or MTV. I’d pitch my family and I! We’re crazy bunch. We’d make great TV, we got some type of up and down going on a weekly basis. We live really close together, like we’re still back home in Vincy. Put us in one house and you’ll have great family time, holes in walls, baby news and much much more!

22) What fictional character in a movie, tv show, or book do you identify with and why?
Gabriel Union in Mary Jane. It’s so unreal. I just wish my life does not turn out like that, but it’s definitely headed that way. If you’ve never heard of the show, check out the teaser and clips here, http://www.bet.com/shows/being-mary-jane.html

11) Your worst/funniest/most embarrassing date
I haven’t dated much. But I can say that I have had a very awkward date once.
He came to pick me up and had all these plans, unfortunately on his way to my house, he lost the reservations for dinner due to an intimate party the restaurant neglected to inform him about. Or so he says….So I decided to arrange the date myself. I called a friend who worked at a restaurant on a busy Saturday night, she pushed us to the front of the line and got us seats in under 10 minutes. She gave us a discount on the meal and a free dessert. Maybe it emasculated him as I had to maneuver the date myself….who knows. But after that his interests dwindled. During dinner they turned on the TVs in the restaurant, well…so much for my sexy tight sweater dress. He barely could take his eyes of the tele. I sat there and ate my dinner while texting who knows who! After that he dropped me home and I never heard from him since.
Grown ass man like him had a nose ring anyways…not my thing.
Very weird, but hey…it could have been me. Nah, I’m great!
8) Five things that are most important to you in a future mate
I didn’t get a chance to post yesterday so I’ll be answering two questions today. Brace yourselves!
6) Sound off on the quote “Every woman has the exact love life she wants”
I agree with this statement but I think she can only have the love life she wants based on what she knows. If she has been nurtured to see negative relationships, she tends to follow those patterns until she becomes conscious of those bad habits. A 21 year old will experience relationships differently than a 31 year old because she is inexperienced. Now if a 31 year old is still having the same issues she did as a 21 year old then she’s just dumb. She deserves growth and much more. So she owes it to yourself to do better and have better and to truly have the love she wants!
As for me, check my last post about sinlge-life sex 😉
7) Where you are in your life vs. where you thought you would be at this point
This is a tough one for me, the emotions run deep. So bare with me.
Currently, I work from home. I am the Editor in Chief of my own Magazine, The COCO Magazine. I’m an entrepreneur, content curator and business woman. I love what I do and thank God for this opportunity and gift every day. I am single.
Where I thought I would be?
I had plans, I have plans, I envisioned them on a regular basis. At 25, I’m supposed to be living on my own, in a condo with a dog and have my own car. I’d be working at a corporate PR company handling big deals and clients. And a couple years later I would move to the Caribbean to start my own PR company or do contract work for a few companies in the Caribbean, enabling me to travel. I envisioned what my home would look like, the lifestyle I would have and of course the man who would be right by my side. I have none of that. It has been the most frustrating thing in my life thus far. It has me very emotional at times. What that does to a person….it breaks your soul. I’m not even going to talk about my finances *eyes closed*. My cousins and I are very close, cousin #1(Twin) and Cousin #2(Partner). Twin recently graduated from Law School and got a job out in the city where she studied. She now has a job, a condo and a new car. I had to help her condo shop, could you imagine the amount of strength I needed to do that?? Partner, just recently bought a brand new car and she hasn’t mentioned it to me yet and she’s going backing school. It’s not jealously…I’m not envious. I’m happy for them, but I’d like to be happy for myself also. I’m not comparing situations, because we’re all different. But this is not where I thought I would be and I have to watch others hit the milestones I planned for. The things I mentioned above are all acquisitions, things that we think bring value to who we really are and I shouldn’t let those things define my goals, visions and current state of being, but it does.
I’m very conscious of my mind state and I try to remove these negative thoughts in order to grow and achieve new goals for myself.
You can never grow until you are content with where you are anyways.
5) The biggest misconception you think people have about single life
The biggest misconception is that we’re lonely. That we’re ultimately crying and dying for someone to fill the void. How about, we like the down time and freedom to chart our own course…never thought about that huh?! And it doesn’t mean that we’re selfish. Maybe we’re working on being self-FULL! There’s a big difference!
And then the other misconception is, they think we’re not having sex. Umm, single-life sex is probably one of the best kinds of sex you’ll ever have! Just saying…
Let’s not judge, that single person might actually be content with their bottle of wine, vanilla candles and handy yet steady vibrator or steady yet handy single-life sex partner!
