1. Choose a man who will treat you like a lady. I believe in equal work for equal pay and in treating women with respect. But I don’t believe you are equal to a man in every way. A good man will feel responsible for you. He will take care of you. He will work hard to provide for you and to keep you happy and safe. Understand the burden he bears to be that man for you.

“Hey Girlfriend, do you want to go on a diet with me?” It was my friend Denise. It was the beginning of the year. We’d both decided we should drop a few pounds, so we set a goal to lose weight. . . kind of.
Over the course of the next few months, we went on a diet-plan frenzy. We’d try one plan for a few weeks, then one of us would find something that sounded better so we’d switch. We hopped from plan to plan. Atkins, the Cabbage Soup Diet, LA Weight Loss, South Beach. If diet hopping was a sport, we’d have dropped pounds in no time.
