Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best - S02E01

Crying again. RIP Joan Rivers!

the world has changed, and none of us can go back.


I'm very much sorry to have weirded you out. Rest assured, I mean no harm nor malicious intent of any kind. I have no problem with being open or showing my face. I'm completely comfortable and proud of every aspect of my being. I just don't actually have a tumblr account. Factually speaking, I stumbled upon your page and was enticed by a few of your posts. My curiosity was piqued and I noticed the Ask option. I decided to act on it. I apologize if you find that intrusive. Thanks for answering.

I by no means found your questioning intrusive sir/ma’am. I’m just not familiar with the ask button and was unaware that you could be anonymous. It’s Tumblr, after all. The place where you can find like-minded people and be exactly who you are. That is all I was getting at. Anyway, hope that explains it.

In honor of #ThrowbackThursday, I present to you a few pictures of myself over the past 6 years.

That was a phenomenal answer. I can only hope you mean it and live by it wholeheartedly. Too often girls say things like that and they turn out to be just words. Has a guy ever been able to fulfill that for you? Or been able to come close?

Dear Anonymous,

You seem rather invested in my answer. I don’t mind the anonymity but it is a bit weird. Why hide behind a “cool circle” when you could just easily show your face? Don’t be ashamed of who you are. I’d appreciate the same candor from you that I show on this website. But that’s your call, I’m merely making a suggestion.

Nevertheless, the answer to your question is no. A guy has never fulfilled that because I’ve never given any thought or time to romance. I’ve always put my family, my education, and my goals ahead of any chance at normalcy. LOL. That’s just who I am, but I’m hopeful that it will happen eventually. And when it does, I’m sure he’ll sweep me off my feet.

And yes, there have been at least 2 men that I can think of that fulfilled those “requirements” that I search for in a potential partner. But I never took it further than a conversation. Like I said, it will happen. I’m just not actively seeking anything at the moment.

Who gave Jamahl Thompson permission to be this handsome?

What is it about a guy that is most attractive to you?

What is most attractive about a guy to me all comes down to three things: 1. His confidence/personality, 2. His intelligence, & 3. His integrity. I like a man to know and be comfortable with exactly who he is (personality) and be happy with just that (confidence). Also, knowing something that I don’t and challenging me is a turn-on (intelligence). But most importantly, I’m attracted to a man who takes a stand for what he believes in and isn’t afraid to admit defeat (integrity). That’s the basics. And then things like physical attractiveness, status, & goals all come into play when it’s their time to.

My favorite cover of this song, by far.

Mindy Kaling is me.
