The One. (Preview)
Chapter 1 – Dannisha Davis (Introduction)
What’s poppin’ sis? My name is Dannisha Evette Davis, but everyone calls me Danny.
I’m a 28-year-old African American female. Brown skin, standing 5”8, curvy, athletic built, with long black curly hair that stops at my mid back. I currently live in a studio apartment in Atlanta, Georgia. I love seafood, going to the beach, drinking red wine on my couch and chilling with my bitches. Most times if I am not at work, I am out in these streets being a hopeless romantic and fucking these wacky ass niggas. I know sis… I know. But enough about me though, let’s talk about why we are here. Let’s talk about this other specie called MEN and how stressful it can be finding the one. The one guy you spend years trying to impress by getting all dolled up, getting your hair, nails and makeup done. The one guy you hope to have some bomb ass sex with. The one guy you wish will drop down on his knee to ask you to be his wife. The one guy who you wish will grant you the ability to have some beautiful kids with. Pour a glass of wine, run a bubble bath, roll up a blunt, cuddle up in bed, or whatever the fuck else you do and let me spill some tea and knowledge to you and share a story of three guys that I THOUGHT was… yep…. THE ONE.
For the last 3 years I have been living on my own after receiving my master’s degree in business administration at the illustrious Clark Atlanta University. Shout out to my HBCU by the way. *hair flip* Anyway, like I promised, I’m here to spill some tea about my life and these three wonderful, handsome, loving, retarded, cheating ass, muthafucking men. To start off, my track history with men is horrible, okay. My last relationship was in 2012 while I was still in undergrad that lasted about 7 months. A waste of time, right? RIGHT. Who wants to be in a relationship while in college? Undergrad at that? Not me. I wanted to have fun and live my best single life. I mean think about it. College parties, fine ass upper classman, access to alcohol and weed. It couldn’t get any better than that. However, I didn’t let that distract me from my studies.
I graduated with a 4.1 GPA with ease. Yes, I’m bragging bitch. You would too. As easy as it is to become distracted, it’s easy to stay focused. I’m not the one to make excuses about why I can’t achieve greatness. Excuses are tools of incompetent, and those who specialize in them seldom go far. If you know, you know. Okay well, truth time. I’m preaching to you about excuses however, when it came to these niggas…... chile. I think I had every excuse in the book as to why I couldn’t get right.
As women, we are easy to give in when it comes to a guy that catches our attention.
Usually I would go for those tall, dark, chocolate, white teeth, muscular built, short haircut guys.
Yes... my weakness. I bet you’re thinking about a chocolate brotha right now sis. If not, you’re missing out. I promise you God took his time with those dark skin brotha’s. Lawwwwd. Recently though I have been stepping outside of my preference and have been dipping into the light skin and Hispanic pools. I’ve fucked a white boy before, and you know… It wasn’t that bad, but I will get into that later. Before I forget I wanted to let you know that I will be talking about my close bitches who went through stressful times with their niggas. Taylor Parker and Stylisha Ellis, my ride or dies. Her name is ghetto as hell, right? I said the same thing. But they are always there to support me through thick and thin. Listen, if you don’t have a group of well educated, ride or die, beautiful, mindful, strong women in your circle, get it together. Not saying your circle has to be hella big but every girl deserves to have a friendship with another female who can relate and push her to be the next best thing. That is what they do for me and I love them to death for it. Friendships are hard fucking work girl, I get it. That’s another story lesson for another time though. Alright, do you need a refill? Need to roll up another blunt? Gotta cuss ya nigga out really quick? Have to pee? Need to grab a snack? I recommend you do so now because story time is about to start sista girl.
