You pretend like you’re okay with this “sorta-in-a-relationship-but-not”. He sends “good morning” texts & when you’re together, there’s an intense chemistry like you two were made for each other. Despite that, you’re constantly overthinking his every word and action. You crave planned dates but get “You up?” texts and last minute “hangouts”. You either feel like you’re too much or not enough. You tell yourself to be patient & hope it will pan into an official title. But you’re exhausted being on the rollercoaster of anxiety, hope and disappointment. You’ve tried to end it but you always get reeled back in.
You want him to want to define the relationship. You want commitment. You want to be proudly tagged on their Instagram. You want to make future plans. You want to believe that your perfect someone wants to see all parts of you. You want to confidently express your needs & desires. You want to feel happiness while single and whole & secure when partnered.

I help black women in their late 20s to early 30s get out of unfulfilling relationships and recreate self-love & happiness - single or partnered. Are you ready to break free?
