Married Couple Jenisa & Lester Richmond Reveal Their UBERPOOL Love Story

Sis, we love a good modern day love story!

Exclusive Interviews

On this journey of love, we often don't realize that our soulmate is in the right place, but we're not giving off the right vibes to attract what we desire. And many of us single women are struggling when it comes to finding love, but what if the man of dreams was the one you avoided eye contact with earlier today while on the elevator, in the Uber ride, or at the grocery store?

Inspired by the xoNecole.com article, "I Met Him In An UberPOOL And Now We're Married", the second episode of xoNecole's Happy Hour Podcast explores the possibilities of finding love in unexpected places. Our hosts Necole Kane, Amer Woods and Sheriden Chanel interview special guests Jenisa and Lester Richmond to get all the tea on their love story that started just three years ago in a rideshare in Los Angeles.

During Happy Hour, Lester shares how Jenisa ghosted him twice before finally saying yes to a first date, and Jenisa shares how they kept the relationship going while living in two different states. Plus, what's a love story without a few challenges? The couple reveal a few bumps in the road as they tried to make love work.

We all know that advocacy for inclusion and equality should be year-round, since we all have to be our fullest selves all day every day. Identity is a key element of doing that, and for LGBTQ+ professionals, this can include the question of coming out at work. Some may wonder whether their personal business is, well, anybody's business at work, while others might want to feel safe in the office being out, loud, and proud. Either way, coming out in the workplace is indeed an issue that not only must be addressed, but addressed appropriately.

Love is beautiful and social media is a wonderful way to showcase and spread it. However, many times it's the content with a bit of controversy or drama tied to it that gets all the double taps. But as my father once told me, "It's fine to seek drama in your art and interests, but love should make you happy and feel peace." When he said that, it stuck with me. For a long time, I think I sought out excitement in my relationships and that can lead to a lot of unhappiness or unhealthy situations.

The relationship we have and nurture with self lays the foundation for how we relate to and connect with others in our lives. Assessing the issues that discourage self-love from prospering are key in order to repair and reignite the freedom that comes when we finally believe the words "you are enough." I chatted with self-love advocate and lifestyle entrepreneur Shelah Marie – who you may remember from when her 2017 photo of doing yoga with boyfriend, rapper Ace Hood, went viral. Shelah's mission is to create a movement of total self-love and liberation for women of color through her platform Curvy, Curly, Conscious – a place where "self-help" meets "real talk" through virtual and offline events and retreats.

The first time I really learned about the five love languages was a year after a big heartbreak in my early twenties, and since then I've found myself exploring the love languages of each of my subsequent partners in an effort to be a better lover to them. At the click of a simple quiz, you'll know whether words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch is the primary way you prefer to experience love.
