Sleeping With The EX

EMP108_17_nothinggood

This past weekend I had a lot of family at my house. When my cousin and I, with some friends, were talking about exs, my cousin made a valid point. When you break up with someone, sleeping with them puts you in a bad position. How so? You become the…

I didn’t grow up in a very diverse neighborhood. It was all West Indian, Black and Latin folks. It wasn’t until college when I made some, “white” friends. I’ve always been the open to meeting new people and honestly wasn’t nervous when befriending people outside my race. When you go…
