Can A Sistah Get A Date?!


It has been ten months since my relationship ended. The time has been well spent reflecting on what lessons I learned from the relationship as well as healing from the reality that it ended. I have begun preparing my mind for marriage covenant with my #FutureHusband by studying God’s word and learning what it means to be a godly wife; while also committing to a lifestyle of abstinence until marriage. And if I may be honest, it has been a refreshing and peaceful experience. But as refreshing and peaceful as it has been I have but one question……

Can a sistah get a date?!!

Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with taking myself out on a date. In fact, just last weekend I took myself to dinner and we had a great time sitting at the bar, eating and talking to people. I will go to the movies with myself. I have been to concerts with myself. I will go for nature walks with myself. And one day soon, I am even going to take a vacation with myself. But sometimes I would like to go on a date with someone other than myself.

By now you are probably wondering if I have any girlfriends. Of course I do! I love spending time with my girls. They are amazing women. We laugh together. We cry together. We share together. We encourage one another. We celebrate one another. My relationship with my girls is important to me and I thank God for them. But, even still…..

About Shannon D. Robinson

Shannon Robinson Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland (Go Ravens!!!), I discovered early on that I am very opinionated and passionate about my opinions. This has brought on the realization for me that I think differently from most people and it took some time for me to come to grips with that unique side of me. Writing for me is often an escape. A place I can go with my thoughts and opinions and not have to concern myself with offending anyone or not agreeing with someone. My thoughts and opinions are mine and God’s and I know that He doesn’t judge me on them. My writing is a personal journey that allows me to be transparent with self (and sometimes others) as I believe that nothing I have experienced or gone through on this journey called life was meant for me to keep to myself. Somewhere there is another woman who is experiencing or has experienced the very same things, thoughts, and feelings I have and it is my prayer that my story in some small way helps her to see that she too can come through. While at the same time giving God glory for his wondrous works. I appreciate you for stopping by and sharing in my journey as I try my absolute best to navigate it as smoothly as possible; even when I come across detours and bumps along the way. ~ Hotep

  1. Uhmm…. did I right this or did you? That’s what I’ve been asking for a WHILE!!!!! Can I get a date? LOVE my girlies, and as most people see from my Facebook posts & pics, we rock out A LOT! But, I want a healthier balance between going out with the Girls and sitting across the table, walking beside or hand-in-hand with A MAN!!!!!!
