On the Top Qualities He Looks for in a Woman…

"I would say the first thing would be that she has to have taste, that does a lot for me as far as her style. Also, there has to be chemistry, I don't like anything that's forced because that never has a good outcome. Intelligence, of course, and she has to be strong in her own way and in who she is. It's more attractive when a woman is independent and likes to make her own decisions and she's not a follower or clout chaser."

On His Ideal Date…

"My ideal date would be spontaneous, somewhere that's not typical. It doesn't have to be super overwhelming though, it could be something simple like a date at Runyon Canon. Something like us driving to Malibu beach with the top down, listening to music, and talking about deep, intimate things. It just depends on the vibe, so I couldn't treat every date the same. It varies."

On What He’s Learned From His Last Serious Relationship…

"My last serious relationship taught me to realize what you have and appreciate it. To appreciate love."

"You don't realize when things are going well and you're in love, people like to break that up because they want what you have. So, it taught me to just protect what I have and keep people out of your business. You have to let it be private because it's a sacred thing."

On His Relationship Deal Breakers…

"I don't like to be controlled. That's an instant turn-off. I don't like women who have everything going on physically, but we just don't connect mentally. That throws me off. And also, we can't argue out in public or cause a scene rather when we disagree on something. It should never be like that."

On the Toughest Part about Dating Nowadays…

"I would say social media but specifically since I'm in the entertainment industry, there's the music so there's a lot of parties. When you see a lot of beautiful people around you all the time, it's easy for you to slip up. But that's no excuse because you still have to be held accountable for all your actions. But there are a lot more resources available in our generation, which makes it very hard."

On How He Makes His Special Woman Feel Loved…

"I like to surprise her with little gifts. Whether it be flowers or champagne, I just want it to be my way of showing that I appreciate her. I like spontaneous things where she wasn't expecting me to do anything. You have to keep it spicy! You don't ever want her to feel like you're taking her for granted or that it's just a phase."

On the First Thing He Immediately Notices about a Woman...

"Probably her face and then what she's wearing. But aura is everything too. Some women have crazy sex appeal when they walk in. Some women have that appeal where once you talk to them you find out that they're on a whole different level, and some women have everything going on. So, it's just different."

His Relationship Status…

"I'm single."

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
