Never Too Much

Luther Vandross

“Never Too Much” Performed by Luther Vandross

I can’t fool myself, I don’t want nobody else to ever love me
You are my shinin’ star, my guiding light, my love fantasy
There’s not a minute, hour, day or night that I don’t love you
You’re at the top of my list ’cause I’m always thinking of you
I still remember in the days when I was scared to touch you
How I spent my day dreaming, planning how to say I love you
You must have known that I had feelings deep enough to swim in
That’s when you opened up your heart and you told me to come in

Oh, my love
A thousand kisses from you is never too much
I just don’t wanna stop
Oh, my love
A million days in your arms is never too much
I just don’t wanna stop
Too much, never too much, never too much, never too much

Woke up today, looked at your picture just to get me started
I called you up, but you weren’t there and I was broken hearted
Hung up the phone, can’t be too late, the boss is so demanding
Opened the door up and to my surprise there you were standing
Well, who needs to go to work to hustle for another dollar
I’d rather be with you ’cause you make my heart scream and holler
Love is a gamble and I’m so glad that I’m winning
We’ve come a long way and yet this is only the beginning

Oh, my love
A thousand kisses from you is never too much
(Never too much, never too much, never too much)
I just don’t wanna stop
Oh, my love
A million days in your arms is never too much
(Never too much, never too much, never too much)
And I just don’t wanna stop
Oh, my love
A thousand kisses from you is never
(Never too much, never too much, never too much)
I just don’t wanna stop
Oh, my love
A million days in your arms is never too much

Guest Spot on Tom Joyner Morning Show

tom_joyner_morning_show1

Earlier this morning, I stopped by the Tom Joyner Morning Show (TJMS) to talk about African American Matchmaking.  With Jacque Reid, we discussed Why Online Dating Doesn’t Work.  One of the most pressing questions that Tom and Jay asked was, “Where do you get your men?”  Of course, it really depends on what the client is looking for.  If my client wants a church-going man, then I will look in churches, among other places.

One of the fallacies that is pervasive in our community is that there aren’t enough men or that a good man is nearly impossible to find.   I address this type of thinking in my book, How to Find & Choose the Right Man.   This is nonsense–men are everywhere!  We maintain a national registry and have databases of eligible men.  We always welcome more.

But I don’t just match women with men; I also match men with women.  If you are a man looking for a match, I can help you, too.  All you have to do is Get Started.  African American Matchmaking promotes love, above all else.

Pre-Order New Book

BBG_Man FRONT

The second book in the Black Girls Guide book series was recently announced: How to Find & Choose the Right Man. Released just in time for the international Valentine’s Day holiday, the book can be pre-ordered with free shipping. What is the new book about? According to author and African American Matchmaker, Angela D. Coleman:

“We are all looking for stable, loving, relationships. While there are some women who claim that they love the single life, we are all social beings in an interconnected universe who often crave the love of an understanding and committed partner. This guide will show you how to use the power of choice to find and choose a man who will love, respect and cherish you.”

Relationship Attraction

Single vs in Relationship

 

When a man or woman is in a relationship (i.e., involved, taken), they tend to appear MORE attractive to members of the opposite sex.  Most people believe this and some of us have witnessed it personally, but there is scientific evidence that also supports it.

When a man or woman is in a relationship, it conveys the fact that this person is good relationship “material.”  In other words, they become more “relationship-worthy.”  If someone tries to take your significant other away from you, most likely it’s not anything personal–apparently, it’s human nature.

When someone is alone, it is hard to judge if s/he would make a good girlfriend or boyfriend.  But when they have a girlfriend or boyfriend, especially a socially attractive one, their “real estate” goes up and they become more valuable.   Their worth increases tremendously and others respond to this relationship validation.

In addition, when we are in loving relationships, we convey a sense of security and peaceful lovingness (yes, peaceful lovingness!).  This love radiates from us and is contagious.  Others feel it and want it for themselves, too.

Just know that the world is abundant.  There are plenty of men and women!  We don’t have to take anything from anyone else to get something for ourselves.  Always remember karmic law.  And if it can be taken from you, it wasn’t really yours, after all.

Women Prefer Facebook Over Sex

black-woman-on-computer

Many men and women have become so addicted to online social media that 57% of 1,020 women in Cosmopolitan magazine’s Sex and Social Media survey would rather give up sex than stop using the Internet for a night.

Chatting with friends, flirting–forming and maintaining relationships has now switched to an online activity instead of the off-line activity that it used to be.  And now, we see the impact that Internet and social media sites are having on their sex lives.

Sperm Wars?!

blackcouple-inbed-300x199

From Sperm Wars: What Happens When Females Play The Game? @ www.thyblackman.com:

When a man has sex with a woman, he releases millions of living sperm cells through ejaculation. The sole purpose of 99% of these sperm cells is to seek and destroy any remnants of sperm that may be present in the woman’s body from her last sex partner.

A female’s body is not designed to host two sperm donors simultaneously. Inevitably one donor will provide the champion seed that will plant it’s flag and claim victory. In this way the strongest of the two species survives and the weaker is defeated.

Similarly, a woman isn’t mentally or emotionally designed to have multiple sexual partners. When a female has sex with a guy, the act of him entering her allows his life force and energy to enter her as well. That man’s life force and energy then becomes a part of that woman’s emotional and mental character. The more of a man’s life force she takes inside of her, the more like that man she becomes. She starts to take on his ideological outlook on life, and begins to reflect the essence of who that man is…

The Next Big Thing

We are participating in a blog hop appropriately titled “THE NEXT BIG THING.”

“THE NEXT BIG THING” is designed to raise awareness of our work or work in progress. We do that by answering ten questions about it. We graciously thank the person who nominated us, and tag other authors whose work could very well be THE NEXT BIG THING.

What is the working title of your next book?

Black Girls Guide:  How to Be Like Michelle Obama is our new book, released as an ebook in December 2012 and just released in print this week.

                           AngelaDColeman2013BBG_MObama Cover FRONT800
Where did the idea come from for the book?

There are “how to” guides for everything. In fact, “how to” is the most searchable term online. Why not a “how to” publication that is specifically dedicated to Black girls and their self-development?  These tools are important for everyone, particularly for girls who are bombarded with pop   culture that is not always empowering.  That is why we call Black Girls Guide “Mentoring in a Book.”

What genre does your book fall under?

Good question! The Black Girls Guide book series fall under a number of different book genres:  psychology, self-help, personal transformation, self-esteem, success, education, reference, social situations, children’s books, teens and adult non-fiction.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Since the first book is about Michelle Obama, Kerry Washington could play her or a new, up-and-coming African American actress.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

From Michelle Obama’s agenda, style, family, sense of humor and strength, Black Girls Guide:  How to Be Like Michelle Obama is a “how to” guide that explains what makes the first African American First Lady of the United States successful and how readers can be successful, too.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Black Girls Guide:  How to Be Like Michelle Obama is published by Sisterhood Agenda Enterprises, LLC.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

Because the first book of the series is about a living historical figure, it took about 3 months to research and write Black Girls Guide:  How to Be Like Michelle Obama.  There are approximately 50 working titles for the Black Girls Guide series and I am a natural writer.  It will likely take a couple of months to write, edit and publish each title.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

There are a few books about Michelle Obama and one children’s book that I know of.  Black Girls Guide:  How to Be Like Michelle Obama is different because it targets teens and young women specifically in a way that they can be indirectly mentored by our First Lady by getting to know more about her, her journey and her choices.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

We need role models in our communities and Michelle Obama has a tremendous influence on the world, particularly Black girls who see themselves in her.

I believe that everyone can share a “how to” experience.  This type of sharing helps us develop our full potential.  In this spirit of sharing and sisterhood, I am inspired to share what I know how to do with Black Girls Guide readers.   One thing that I know how to do is be myself and be like Michelle Obama!

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

There are little-known facts about Michelle Obama in the book, but I think that her relationship with her husband would definitely interest readers.  In fact, her marriage is such a powerful image of Black love that it inspired me to write the second book of the series, How to Find & Choose the Right Man and start African American Matchmaking.

Other Sisterhood Agenda titles that might interest people are A Journey Toward Womanhood  and Beautiful. (republished soon).  I include these in my list Best Books for Black Girls:  check out my Author Page and more information at www.blackgirlguide.com!

Top 10 Best Dating Tips

487173_252180738226573_1541864439_n

  1. Date often.  Dating gives you and your person of interest the opportunity to get to know each other better.
  2. Don’t try to be perfect. Try to be your natural, best self.
  3. Date one-on-one.  Dating used to be the first step of a clearly defined, socially-created mating ritual.  Group dates are not really “dates” in the traditional sense.  You could easily get distracted and lose focus.
  4. Date with intention.  If you want a long-term relationship, date like you do.
  5. Do something funky and fun.  Try something new with someone new!
  6. Be open-minded, but keep your standards.  Just because someone wants to date you doesn’t mean you need to accept.  Think about it–you actually DO have better things to do.
  7. Don’t fall for words, look at actions.  Anyone can tell you who they are, but you be the judge.  Take your time.
  8. Focus on your date, not yourself.  Observe your date and let him/her ask questions.  Dialogue and conversation goes both ways.
  9. Avoid the appearance of desperation.  Predators can sense it and most people do not respect desperate people.
  10. Use creative visualization to date the wo/man you want. Call it the law of attraction, the Secret or something else-it works!
