The Single Chronicles

By Insomniac Writer
The Single Chronicles Podcast is about the shenanigans of being single from a very opinionated single woman. It's a more in depth take on the YouTube series from the self-proclaimed Singles Coach. Rather it's a venting session or giving advice, RS Lewis will help you do more than just cope with being single.

Episode 28: Break-ups Suck but it's not the end of the world
This week I want to go back to the topic of breakups and moving on! I received a message on IG about breaking up. While a past YouTube video of mine showed you how to get over a breakup, https://youtu.be/aNPbYpATiro ... This week I want to chat on that again especially with us on lockdown.

Episode 27: Should I Confess to My Friend (Ask an Insomniac)
So this week I took a stab at a DM that I received via Instagram from a follower who wanted to know if it was safe to let a friend know that they had romantic feelings for them. Check out the answer I had for them!

Episode 26: Blowing Up His Phone
Tired of blowing up his/her phone? Wondering why he doesn't reply to your text messages? You asked the question, here's my answer. I had to skip this one to the head of the class.

Episode 25: Entanglement
So instead of the episode I had actually recorded, I wanted to talk about the whole Jada Pinkett, Will Smith, August Alsina situation. While Jada is married, this type of situation happens to a lot of us. Some of us are in an entanglement with a person who's not our actual partner... And don't even know it.

Episode 24: the one about having friends who want all of your time
So this week I went on a bit of a rant. I had a mess of things going on and someone had the audacity to tell me I was bad friend because of the one time I didn't drop everything for them. In this case it was back to back funerals and around my kid's graduation! Folks, real friends don't gaslight when you set up boundaries. Also, just because your friends are single doesn't mean they don't have shit to do. Do you have friends that swear because you're single, you have all the time in the world or that you can readily stop what you're doing at the drop of a dime? If so listen up!

Episode 23: Why is this female tripping (Ask an Insomniac)
In this week's episode, I answered a question to a man in need regarding a female that he was not in a relationship with but was jealous if other females? Check out my response to him as well as a bit of a story time!

Episode 22: the one about black men who disrespect black women
So I just watched a video of young black girl hit with a skateboard, one thrown in a dumpster & another almost accosted by some guy in a hotel... All by young black boys, not men but BOYS! What is wrong with these young guys or just guys in general? You want us to fight for you yet YOU NOT RESPECT US??

Episode 21: Is my man cheating??? (Ask A Single Insomniac)
So my first Ask A Single Insomniac episode wasn't really even a single person in need. Or were they? Well she thinks her guy is cheating? Here is my response. Some folks, I guess are actually single in a relationship.

Episode 20: the one about situationships vs. relationships
I was in the midst of posting a new episode on YouTube about those uncommitted situations between people that involve almost everything except the title. Most times it's one person stringing another person along and other times it's two people who have no intentions on settling down but enjoy the physical aspects of companionship. Either way, I want to point out the vast difference between the two.

Episode 19: the one about Light-skin vs. Dark-skin
This week I have a story and a public service announcement where I discuss about internalized racism and how it's affected my dating life. We have enough to deal with being black and single... So men... STOP MAKING IT WORSE!

Episode 18: the one about lying on your kids (storytime)
So I remember a little while back this guy I met seemed to be sweet, smart and good looking. He took me on dates, paid the tab and was just the one I thought I'd settle on... That was until I found out he had a kid he wasn't claiming at all. Worst of all, he lied about it when I confronted him.

Episode 17: Happy Mother's Day (the one about single, toxic abusive mothers)
After watching a clip of a young woman cuss her mother out about being sexually abused by her mother's boyfriends, I was beyond heartbroken. The mother had the audacity to even blame her daughter for the boyfriends perverted infidelity. Mothers as we approach mother's day... We need to do better by our children even moreso when the father is absent. Sometimes a toxic mother is more harmful than an absent, deadbeat dad.

Episode 16: Storytime (the one where I was stupid)
You ever have a girlfriend tell you about a situation they have that could've been completely avoided. And despite you giving them good advice, they go back to the f**ktivity? I mean all you can do is look back and say, "you're a dizzy b*tch!" Well for a moment I was that girl. I'm not proud of it because not only was it not my best moment, it happened while filming The Single Chronicles! Like I completely knew better. But that naive girl in me had to learn a lesson!

Episode 15: Storytime (the one about Psycho Norman Bates)
It's storytime again boys and girls. And though it's not nearly Halloween, I had to tell y'all about the nut-job who lost his damn mind and I didn't even give it up to him. So to protect whatever innocence he has, I'm aptly naming him Norman because just like the guy from Psycho, he went from 0 to 100 real quick! Not only did he do the most, he was kinda crazy and deranged... Did I mention I didn't give him any goodies?

Episode 14: Storytime (the one about struggle love)
This week's episode is a tad different than the previous ones. I have a story to tell you boys and girls! I have a girlfriend who just couldn't get enough of being dumped on by some jerk she was so in love with. I mean the struggle love was real. I hate to call her stupid but the level of fucktivity she experienced was mind-blowing! 🤯

So if you're like me, you're trying to stay sane and cope. That being said, I decided to make some changes to help me get by.

Episode 8: Doing The Most
Imagine minding your own single business, doing whatever it is you do from day to day. Suddenly someone slides in your DM asking you out. You politely decline the offer thinking you can resume life as you know. Suddenly, here they are again and again. Persistent, they go from liking & commenting every post to googling you or showing up at your job. And even when that doesn't work to throw you off, they go and try to damage your name and reputation. Scary? Right... This week's episode is all about them... Petty people who do the most

Episode 3: Forgive or Forget
This week's episode is a follow up episode 4 from season 1 regarding exes texting you out of the blue. While that video was moreso about moving on & poked fun at the notion... Sometimes it's not that simple... Often times, people can change for the better. So should you forgive them or forget them? What does one do?

Episode 2: How to cope being single
This week's episode is inspired by an episode I did about not being miserable and learning how to live a happy life solo. Some folks feel that it's weird being single or an introvert. But it is important to use the alone time to reflect on your life and the choices you've made as well as learn to be a better person.

Episode 1: To Date or Not Date Other Single Parents
This week's debut episode picks up right where the season 2 finale on YouTube left off. I further elaborated on my stigma of dating other single parents. Not to say I don't give other single parents a chance but I don't want to deal with the nonsense.
