Hey there, Are you wondering if you’re dating/courting/engaged to the wrong man? Nobody is perfect, so for anyone to get married, they have to settle in some way.

Shepherd

Dear Worldly Shepherds, Is it alright if I ask you some questions? I seem to have embraced quite a few misconceptions.

Settling

Hello. Do you ever stop to ask yourself why you believe the things you do? I mean, have you ever just woken up one morning, stood in front of a mirror, looked yourself in the eye and said, “Self, real talk… Is X true? WHY? Says who?” I believe it should be every woman’s policy […]
