It's Her Game . . .
Here’s my deal—I'm not knocking myself out to find
Right anymore. As far as this thirty-something sistah is concerned,
it’s now about reciprocity, not romance. A brother
have to whisper promises he won't keep or make me any kind of

world—then step the hell on before anyone gets too attached.
That’s why the last man I need to be trying to hook-up with
next door neighbor, Carl.
But He's Breaking All The Rules . . .
Who does Faye think she’s fooling? She and I both know all
talk she does about game-playing is little more than a big front.
Besides, playing by the rules won't necessarily keep us from falling in
love. And if what's been going on between us lately is any indication,
I'm thinking at least one of us is already halfway there….
