In case you had any doubt that dating is dead, we held a funeral for it – and buried forever the harmful and irrelevant notions about romance, women and relationships that have plagued us for so long. RIP!

Have you ever noticed how some of the same scenes play out over and over again when you’re at the bar? If not, maybe you will now!
Have you heard of the new Lifetime show Girlfriend Intervention? If not, the premise of the show is “Inside every white woman is a strong black woman,” so basically, four sassy black women make over white women.
