If The Love Doesn't Feel Like 90's R&B...

I'm probably single because I learned everything I know about relationships from music. Hello, my name is Lashuntrice and I grew up on 90's R&B. 

I loved how the singers possessed this feminine nature, but at the same time showed that they had just as much power as any man in their lyrics. I grew up wanting to dress like the singers I listened to. While there were examples of Black love in my family and nice fashion too, I didn't want to look like them. I wanted to do what the R&B singers were doing. 

Fast forward to 2015. There are memes that say, "If the love doesn't feel like 90's R&B, then I don't want it" have been going around. As I reflect on my love life, I can successfully say it has felt a lot like the 90's. I've experienced the Butterflies, the confusion of not knowing whether a man was really into me or not, and the pain from realizing I had been used. I've experienced the moments of pure passion and the confusion of not knowing whether I should fight to keep that particular guy around. 

Actually I have this manuscript that describes my journey. I'm currently trying to decide whether to self publish and sell it or to put it up as a free download for you all to read. Stayed tuned. I promise it'll be good.
