Lori Harvey On Dating With A Purpose & Not Compromising Her Peace For Anyone

"...if it’s no longer serving me, I’m going to move on.”

Celebrity News

Lori Harvey’s dating life has consistently been a hot topic on social media and now the model is shedding light on some of her dating do’s and don’ts. In an episode of Bumble’s new “Luv2SeeIt” content series, the SKN by LH founder sat down with the series' director, producer, and host Teyana Taylor and disclosed some quote-worthy thoughts on dating and relationships.


One of the 25-year-old’s dating don’ts is being close with an ex. “Cordial, okay, you speak. I don’t want y’all to have beef because then it gets messy,” she clarified. What she does appreciate, however, is transparency, openness, and communication from a partner.

When asked what makes her feel “powerful” in a romantic relationship, she answered, “Not compromising my values, standards, and my requirements.”

Lori’s last relationship was with Michael B. Jordan. The former couple dated for a year and a half before calling it quits in June 2022. Prior to dating the Creed actor, the model also dated Future and Trey Songz. During her interview, Lori opened up about what influenced her approach to dating.

“I almost got married very young,” she said. “I felt like I hadn’t really experienced anything. I didn’t really know myself, I didn’t really know what I liked, what I didn’t like. I just feel like I hadn’t really experienced life.”

“At that point then I was like I’m about to, like I said, just date on my own terms. However I want to move, whatever I want to do, I’m going to do it. And if it’s no longer serving me, I’m going to move on.”

Lori was engaged to professional soccer player Memphis Depay when she was just 21 years old. She admitted that she wasn’t the same person at 21 that she is at 25 and has learned so much about herself and relationships.

“I’m very much in a space right now where I’m not doing anything that’s gonna compromise my peace and happiness,” she stated. “So, I think just taking control making sure you maintain your power, don’t give your power away to anybody, that I feel like is the key to truly being happy in or out of a relationship.”

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
