There is constant pressure placed on women to get married and have babies at a young age, as if this is their only goal in life. When a woman chooses a different path, it gets ugly. A double standard exists in the dating world concerning serial dating. Women are often ridiculed with derogatory names for choosing to date more than one person. This often leads women to settle on one man, without exploring her options, to avoid ridicule.
We at Sunkissed Fame encourage dating culture, for both men and women. We sat down with the author of “No More Boyfriends”, Michael E. Reid, about his take on the dating scene. Ladies, this is it. We often want to know what is going on in a man’s head, well this is your chance!
Too often, we get stuck with the trash dates. Then we have to pretend to enjoy it or be called “high maintenance”. Ladies, excuse my language, but f***k that bare minimum ish. If he’s going to take you out, you deserve for it to be done right.

MR: This is always a tricky question. I am a firm believer in dates being an opportunity for someone to experience your vibe. So, while a chain restaurant and a box office movie are always safe picks, they don’t really say much about how you are different from anybody else. Also, its kinda hard to ask questions in a movie theatre. I like small restaurants with fresh real food, BYOBs are always a great way to finish a whole bottle of wine and not pay $60 doing it. Street festivals are great in the summer. Museums are great all day dates when you really think you’re
into someone. And my personal favorite is, of course, a poetry show.
Yes we want to keep the group chat informed on how things are going, but ladies stay off your phone during these dates.
