You Date At The Level Of Your Self Esteem

If you knew better you'd do better, and if you felt better you'd date better.  We date at the level of our self-esteem. Your relationship is a direct reflection of your own self-love and self-worth.

A lot of TDL Seekers have written in saying that they are in a relationship (dating, marriage, etc.) with someone who they really are into, but they are not getting their needs met. They keep asking me how they have to change to keep the relationship going.


Loving Someone With High-Functioning Depression

Everything feels a lot harder when you’re dealing with high-functioning depression ― including relationships.

Experts say the condition often isn’t noticeable to most people, because those who experience it tend to mask it well. This arguably makes the disorder difficult for partners to detect and the people who deal with it hesitant to speak up in the first place.

The symptoms are aligned with those of depression, including irritability and extreme sadness. But the average observer wouldn’t necessarily know it based on how the sufferer is acting.

Black Men Loving Black Men Is A Revolutionary Act

The first black man I loved wasn’t an accumulation of white America’s long-held fears. No black man could ever live up to that. He was a body, a human. He was not America’s fabled monstrous buck nor was he an icon of meritocracy.

He was my father. I was his son.

I Don't Know How To Be In A Relationship

I don’t know how to be in a relationship. I know how to be a friend, but I don’t know how to have a partner — someone who is included in my day-to-day life, someone I go on vacations with and for whom I’m willing to travel to some horrible town to meet their parents. I’ve dated people before but it never turned into anything substantial. I pushed my lovers away until they had no choice but to end it themselves. I was petrified every step of the way.

I know what you’re thinking. Did I do something wrong? Did I say something too intense, too deep? Was I too clingy? What did I do that made them stop talking to me out of the blue?

Listen up. You did NOTHING WRONG. This is not about you. This has absolutely nothing to do with what you said or didn’t do. This has everything to do with your ex. They're just an asshole.

You didn’t say anything to make them stop liking you. You didn’t do anything to make them all of a sudden start ghosting you. You weren’t too much. You weren’t too sensitive or too caring.
