I HAVE OFTEN HEARD WOMEN say, “All men are dogs.” Well, I beg to differ and whenever I hear a sista’ utter those words, I am quick to say, “There must be something you ain’t doing’ right!” How can all men be dogs when they all didn’t come out of the same womb? There are good men out here, you just have to have your radar focused on the right frequency!

THE AVERAGE WOMAN WOUD LIKE TO have, as a husband or boyfriend,
someone who is tall, dark, handsome, religious, financially sound, love his momma, loving, attentive, hard working, smart, athletic, righteous, protective, etc. Well, get over that idealism because the best guy for you may not possess all of the above in one body! The guy who really has your best interest at heart just might be that little short, round, kind, considerate, educated, unassuming and hardworking man, who picked up your books or computer bag when you dropped them! He may also be that nerdy-looking guy with a great smile and packing, unbeknownst to you!
OUR MEN COME PACKAGED in many ways and they ain’t all dogs! And our men are worth celebrating . If a man is good to you and treats you with dignity, love and respect, then pay closer attention! If you don’t allow yourself to be “dogged,” you will never have to say, “All men are dogs,,,it just depends on the pedigree!” “A dog-day afternoon” should mean relaxing and enjoying yourself and not being “dogged” by a man in the afternoon!
NOW, I CERTAINLY KNOW that we have guys out here who are just plain unadulterated lowlifes, who are not capable of respecting or sincerely loving and caring for a woman. That man you need to avoid at all cost…even if the sex makes you want to holla! And you should not automatically think the next guy will be worse. You have the choice of allowing them in your life or not! It is up to you to make the decision to have a good man and to treat him right and give him the respect that he deserves because he is there for you. Believe me, they are truly out there in the universe. Just put up a sign: “No dogs allowed!”
