Happy Mother's Day to all of the natural mothers here!
I left for a few months and now things have changed. I don't like how all the 3's are all together. This is going to sound very judgemental, but I feel that 3C's have special hair considerations that 3A's and 3B's just wouldn't understand. And there are plenty of things that I don't understand about 3A and 3B hair.

Oh well, I'll manage.

I can't believe I made it to 3 day hair yesterday and it still LOOKED GOOD. I normally a daily co-washer but I'm trying to change that because summer is coming (and my hair takes forever to air dry in the humidity). I co-washed today but I'm going to try to not co-wash again until it's shampoo day (Thursday).
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!

Since me and my bestie of 12 years are no longer speaking I figured I might as well bare my soul on the internet instead lol...

To my best guy friend, I've secretly been in love with you since the moment we met a year ago and every day I see you I struggle not to drown in it despite the fact that you have a girlfriend that you've been with for 3 years and the fact that I have someone waiting for me at home as well. I mean, for all intents and purposes we should never be together since we're also coworkers and things could get complicated but I can't help imagining what our lives would be like without her or him... All I see is fireworks

Because the thing is, I'm pretty sure you're in love with me too. I'm sure even your GF has noticed if the uneasy glares she sends me whenever we all hang out are any indication. I know you're afraid of what it would say about your commitment to her or what your mutual friends or family might think since we're from different races but we both know I already make you happier than she ever has. I'd never want to become between the two of you if that wasn't the case except we both know who's been there to hold your hand these past ten months, who you share all your hopes, fears and dreams about the future with... Why else did you get upset when I told I'd started seriously dating my SO even though you introduced us?

Our destinies are swirling together like errant stars toward a certain point but will they ever collide into the supernova that I know that we could be? I guess only time will tell, until then I guess I'll just try not to feel guilty about the fact that the loving man I lay my head down next to at night isn't the one who holds me heart. The only comfort I have is the fact that I know you're doing the same across town in her bed, holding her while dreaming of my face and even if it makes me the worst type of person I can't help but smile at that twisted fact all the same

My former best friend of 12 years turned out to be a backstabbing tramp....lol. since u mentioned besties, I figured I would say that.
That's why I'm going back to my old ways, where I had male friends and very few female friends. Can't trust em. And actually another female friend of mine just stopped talkin to me out the blue.
Probably cuz she's cheating on my husband's best friend and everyone knows it and she doesn't want to talk to me about it.

Thing is though, I really don't care. Everybody has their dirt and I can't judge. I think it was wrong of her considering he loves her so much n they were about to get engaged. Come to find out, she was fooling with the other guy for quite a while....smh.
So I'm back to my one twin that's been my ride or die since 9th grade. Ans my homeboys. Bit**es suck

I have always had male and female friends. For me there are pros and cons to both. Women / girls can be messy but it is fun to do girly things together like shop for bathingsuits or get pedicures. Plus some conversation topics I find I get more understanding and support from another woman. Dudes are chill to hang out with. Help move heavy furniture. Fix flat tires. but most of the time with me one person wants to take it to next level and if one person doesn't so it's a strain. Or if that isn't the case either my so or his gets jealous.
I enjoyed reading that post. I dated my good friends only once back in middle school. Didn't work out. We became great friends though. Now we have families & share "do you know what my kid did today..." stories

I have always had more male friends. I keep only a handful of females in my life. Either I was single & hanging with the guys. Our I was taken & hanging out with my guy & his boys. When I do girly stuff I call on my girly friend. When I did dirt, I called on my quiet sneaky female friend. Then there's two girls who always accepted me whether I was ratchet or on point. Oh & if I really need some girl time I have my sorors & my 3 biological sisters.

Now if only my relationship with my parents could be executed with this type of clarity.

I just had to ask! After being natural going on 4 years this year I finally just had a am I crazy moment. Twist outs don't stretch it out well either only braid outs. Whole time I thought I was doing something wrong.
