Is there a difference between settling and compromising? I’m in a number of single’s groups on Facebook, as well as signed up on dating sites.

If you’re like me, for the last week you’ve probably been wondering what the hell did Laurence Fishburne do? And why, per the interwebs, he ain’t shit anymore? I’m kidding. Like many of you, for the past week I’ve been treated to a barrage of Iyanla-like prescriptions of what is supposedly so WRONG with Lawrence, the fictional character from Issa Rae’s new HBO show ‘Insecure.’ And after reading a few op-eds sum up Jay Ellis’s character as “no prize,” “unambitious,” and a “shiftless bum,” I started to notice a trend,Read More
