The Single Chronicles

By Insomniac Writer
The Single Chronicles Podcast isn't just about the shenanigans of being single or some other self-help podcast. This is a therapeutic, venting (sometimes ranting) session designed to help you not only cope with being single... here you'll learn to love yourself, deal with past/preset traumas and avoid future, toxic relationships while discovering the misconception that the "perfect relationship" doesn't exist.

Episode 84: Sex for A Dinner Date? Seriously?
So a video that went viral on TikTok of a couple on a date at Applebee's where the guy proceeded to make her pay for her own meal because she refused to sleep with him. Now I understand that now that this video was a skit for likes and attention and also some women use guys to get free meals and gifts. However, this type of behavior is just petty.

Episode 80: The Blame and Shame Game
This week I discuss the problem of blaming women for being with crappy partners. Why is it that we never old men to the same type of standards we hold women? If we choose bad partners, we seem to lack accountability or we're somehow to blame for the way we're treated! Doesn't seem fair at all.

Episode 74: Ghosted 👻😱
A few years ago, I did a video on YouTube about ghosting and it got me to thinking about those that do it and why? I mean we always talk about how crappy it feels to be ghosted but we rarely talk about why it really happens. It goes beyond being simply uninterested.  Ghosting isn't always the act of cowardice. I mean at its core, ghosting is potentially a trauma response and the avoidance of emotional unavailability in others even though the ghosted are emotionally stable.  Recently a friend brought to my attention that I had ghosted him on several occasions.  But if that wasn't bad enough, I got to thinking about the potential partners I had in the past and how I skated off in fear of the unknown. Only to end up with the worse possible jerks afterwards.  Check out episode 9 of the debut season of The Single Chronicles here at https://youtu.be/BbjRO9IXl70  Be sure to check out the Love Yourself Wellness Shoppe at https://loveyourselfshoppe.company.site/ and use promo code THANKS2U

Episode 73: Is it ok to date my ex's cousin?
**Spoiler Alert** This week's episode is inspired by episode 6 of Bel-Air, The Strength to Smile. So if you haven't watched it, you've been warned. The main character, Will Smith, is smitten with his cousin's ex, Lisa. While his feelings for her were obvious from day 1, he stayed away as Carlton made it clear he wanted her back despite being the reason they broke up in the first place.   My question is: Is it ok to date the ex of your cousin, sibling, or friend? Are they off limits? Is it better if all parties have moved on? Has society moved passed this unwritten code of loyalty?

Episode 58: Mama's Boys
This week I had to go in on Mama's Boys! You know the guys who are so connected to their mothers that they are almost impossible to date.... Or are they???

Episode 55: Should I Get The Jab 💉 before I Date? (Ask An Insomniac)
This week I finally answer a question I received via Instagram: "Should I get the covid vaccine if I want to start dating." This is an Ask An Insomniac question that I finally had the composure to answer.
49:16
September 20, 2021
Episode 54: Stop Chasing Folks & Forcing Relationships
This week's episode is inspired by a post by @wallo267 on Instagram after he & his now former girlfriend admitted that they would part ways amicably. It was a heartfelt moment that he shared with his followers but an example of how two people who have different paths choose to follow fate instead of forcing what's not meant to be. Why stay in a relationship to the point of hating each other when you can admit that you both are better off as friends.
34:08
September 14, 2021
Episode 53: He's Married! (Ask An Insomniac)
On this week's episode I received a text from a friend asking for my advice after she found out a guy she had been seeing was married. So I gave her my honest advice but I also had to put a few people in the Accountability Corner
42:05
September 06, 2021
Episode 52: DELUSIONAL?
TRIGGER WARNING: Are folks so determined to have someone that they will go to great lengths to get someone? Be it someone who is spoken for or simply uninterested altogether, folks lie to others and even worse themselves just to for the sake of companionship? This also includes appearances. And why I think it's not cool to alter such. Nothing wrong with cleaning up or getting fancy but completely changing who you are still makes people feel deceived. It's not phobic to want some kind of disclosure up front for any reason!
37:29
August 23, 2021
Episode 51: TRIGGERED
There are some seriously butthurt people out here. You know the type of folks who are so ready to engage in a battle of fisticuffs, because they swear someone is disrespecting them. When in honesty, they refuse to see that they are actually triggered and projecting their own issues & insecurities. This week we chat a little about that.

August 16, 2021
Episode 50: Know your role, dudes!
This week is such a special occasion that I needed to tell some fellas to stay in their place and know their role! No just kidding, I'm hyped about the fact that today's post is the 50th episode. But I still wanted to tell these Kevin Samuels flunkies who always want to flaunt their misogynistic views on women. You want women to be a certain way or be more submissive but aren't doing what they're supposed to. Men are now outnumbering women yet there are more and more women refusing to settle. I wonder why?
36:36
August 09, 2021
Episode 49: Why guys (and girls) play mind games.
This week I am asking the age-old question, why do folks play games? Either you know or don't know what you want? Nobody has time for that.
36:53
July 26, 2021
Episode 48: Dating 101
So you think you're ready to date?? This episode breaks down dating and why time being single is the worse reason to hop back on the saddle again
42:52
July 22, 2021
Episode 47: Petty 2.0
More shenanigans of being petty or shall I say putting me first. This week we're talking about employers and other people who expect us single folks to stop what we're doing and bend over backwards. Just because I'm single doesn't mean I have nothing going on and even if I do, I reserve the right to self-care.
40:09
July 12, 2021
Episode 46: I Can Be Petty AF
So this week I got to thinking about some of the responses I've given others when I had my feet in the dating pool. But more importantly, why. Stick to the end for this one.
37:34
July 05, 2021
Episode 45: Stop Trying So Hard
I had to get this off my chest. I was... No I get so exhausted of people who do too much to impress others. Especially those who normally don't have a snowball's chance in hell with someone so they either spend money they don't have, pester others or outright lie... Please guys... Just stop it
31:48
June 28, 2021
Episode 44: Stop Letting the Toxicity Win
In order to heal and win in life, we have to acknowledge what it who is toxic in our lives so that we can face it, fix and be our best selves. But what if the toxic person is us?
40:05
June 21, 2021
Episode 43: Should you be friends with your ex?
I hear this question so much from my newly turned singles. It's actually funny because I've touched based on this so many times in the past. But my answer now is a little different than before because when I first started this podcast and this whole movement I was a little jaded individual. I'm a little wiser nowadays so there is a bit more understanding behind my answer and why it's not so cut clear black and white...
32:16
June 14, 2021
Episode 42: You want a partner or a parent?
This week I tried showing off my psychology chops by diving into the toxic parent-child dynamic of potential relationships. I wanted to talk about this because it seems that some of us aren't looking for potential partners, they're looking for providers. These kinds of folks have repressed childhood traumas brought on by absent or emotionally devoid parents so instead of facing them, they seek people who can fill that void.
53:30
June 08, 2021
Episode 41: Drama Queens
Do you know a person that constantly stirs trouble or makes a dramatic scene over nearly anything? These are just one of the many forms of narcissists. What this has to do with being single is that these attention-seekers usually find themselves either sabotaging possible relationships all the while playing victims of said sabotage.
33:29
May 31, 2021
Episode 40: Would you date an overweight person?
This week I was was listening to yet another self-proclaimed, life coach who in my opinion had a little bit of a vanity issue. While everyone is entitled to their dating preferences, excluding the possibility and the potential of a great mate because they don't fit your mold of physical perfection is bottom line being vain. I too have been guilty of this.
38:02
May 24, 2021
Episode 39: Heal Yo' self
This week I'm discussing my fellow single folks who are not only unequipped to move on into new relationships but are jaded from the previous ones.
40:05
May 18, 2021
Episode 38: Hyper Independence
This week I wanted to talk about people who never seem to want to ask for help. I know this because I was one of those people.
24:26
May 03, 2021
Episode 37: Setting Boundaries and Moving On
On this week episode: I had a question in my DM asking if setting boundaries was wrong or harsh. It's nothing wrong with a healthy boundary no more than there's nothing wrong with compromise.

Episode 36: The things I hate most about being single.
Here are 3 things about being single that I guarantee other singles hate as much as I do.
37:44
April 20, 2021
Episode: 35 Feeling Yourself vs. Loving Yourself
This week's episode was loosely inspired by Miss Chloe Kardashian who had a moment of insecurity based off of a picture that was leaked that was for lack of a better word perfect. I wanted to talk about that because there's nothing wrong with feeling yourself but when you don't love yourself you're living a lie. And if social media has taught me anything it's that most times these folks that only show us this picture perfect world... are just as miserable as the rest of us
37:17
April 12, 2021
Episode 34: Why Is Toxic Sex So Good
Why does good sex stretch a bad relationship/situation past it's expiration date? Why do we have this sort of tunnel vision? Well I have this theory...
40:27
April 05, 2021
Episode 33: Are You Asking For Too Much
This week's episode is sort of a follow-up to last week's episode about black women not being dateable. However this week I wanted to ask the question, if we are asking too much when looking for potential partners. I was inspired by Kevin Samuels, self-proclaimed coach & relationship guru. Check out my Merch Store: https://teespring.com/stores/drunken-insomniac-writer-merch
36:58
March 29, 2021
Episode 32: Why Black Women Aren't Datable (pt. 1)
What is it about black women that make them less appealing to date or better yet, marry? This was a topic that I was inspired to do for sometime. The statistics are stacked against all women but moreso women of color. Do you thing this is true? If so what are your takes on this issue? If not, do you think it's "fake news"?
42:18
March 22, 2021
Episode 31: Should I confess to my new partner... (Ask An Insomniac)
We've all got skeletons in the closet. Ok so what! Right now you're dating & you meet someone nice. Things are going great. But how soon is too soon to tell them about your past? How much should you tell them about your past relationships and experiences in the beginning before proceeding? Should you even tell them at all?
28:47
March 15, 2021
Episode 30: Am I A Toxic Person
This particular episode is a little lengthier than my normal episodes. However it was a looking inward and evaluating ourselves on a deeper level. I asked the question, "Am I a Toxic Person" because often times, we spend so much energy focusing on the crappy things others do, we forget about the crappy roles we play. This episode will ask several questions... To get to the bottom of the question... Are You A Toxic Person
57:35
March 08, 2021
Episode 29: Owning Female Sexuality
So in the season opener I wanted to discuss the objectification of females and their sexuality and why we as females can't own it. if a man is promiscuous nobody bad tonight but if a female is... Well then she's branded for life & her reputation is in ruins. This point of this episode isn't to discuss whether or not the parameters of such are right and wrong but that we as a society need to keep that same energy when it comes to the sexuality of women and why men can exploit it but women can't do so much is own it.

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.
30:27
August 03, 2020
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.
48:39
July 20, 2020
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.
30:57
July 14, 2020
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 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 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 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?

This week's episode is a tad different than the previous ones. I have a story to tell you boys and girls!

I hate to call her stupid but the level of fucktivity she experienced was mind-blowing! 🤯

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.
