Majoring in Her Is Now Streaming

Hello folks.

If you haven’t heard yet, I officially launched my second podcast Majoring in Her. It’s a spinoff series from the original Majoring in Me, and focuses on the beloved character Denise as she tries to balance college with her new boo. And that balancing act is nothing short of difficult, and yet, it’s awkwardly funny.

Speaking of funny, listeners of my first show shouldn’t expect my new series to be as heavy on the dramatics. After all, I’ve listed Majoring in Her as a fiction comedy. This new endeavor of mine comedically explores some of the issues all of us have probably encountered trying to be in love and yet pursue success on a professional level. And what makes this even more special, is this exploration occurs through the eyes of a 20-year-old Black woman in undergrad. Oh, and in the year 2007.

Now let me just say, some listeners of the Denise-led series have already taken the time to let me know the show reminds them of Insecure and Awkward Black Girl. Which are huge compliments that I humbly receive. Issa Rae is definitely someone I look up to and admire. But while my show has drawn the comparisons, I’m proud to say that I’ve also been told the series reflects my own unique writing style.

So make sure you check out Majoring in Her. It’s now streaming on all major podcast platforms.

My Friends Said She Was a “Hoe.” Should I Breakup with Her?

Dear T,

I’ve been dating this girl for just over a year now and in the beginning before we started dating, we would talk about our hoe pasts (which at the time I didn’t care cause I had no intentions of dating her). Now that we’ve been dating, I can’t seem to stop thinking about what she’s said about her past. Just recently, someone I know (a friend of my friend) has told me that she’s a hoe and that I should pretty much break up with her. Part of me believes him and part of me doesn’t cause she treats me with so much respect and does a lot for me.

What’s your take on this matter?

I Don’t Want to Break Up but Our Sex Life Is in the Trash

Dear T,

How do you tell your boyfriend that he no longer satisfies you sexually without him getting mad and breaking up with you? That’s pretty much my problem. I’ve tried introducing toys, instructing him to try new positions, proposed a threesome which he turned down, and tried new places. He just doesn’t do it for me sexually like that anymore and that sucks because I love him. He’s an amazing boyfriend and treats me like a king, so I don’t want to break up with him. But I don’t want to be in a situation like this. I’m only 27, and sex is still important. Help.

I Told My Friend I Don’t Like Him Like that and He Ghosted Me

Dear T,

I’m in a sticky situation with my friend of over 6 years. I thought we were real cool. We went out to happy hours, house kickbacks, and even church. He’s met some of my family, and I’ve been to his family’s home for cookouts. I broke up with my ex a month ago, and two weeks ago my friend tells me that he has feelings for me. He wants us to be in a relationship. I wasn’t expecting that at all. Especially because I don’t like him in that way.

When I told him that I just want us to stay friends, he didn’t take the news well and ghosted me. He won’t answer my calls or texts, and he’s blocked me on all social media. I want my friend back. It’s like I’m being punished for my feelings. What do I do?

Today is the day folks. The third season of Majoring in Me the Podcast has officially started. As I’ve previously stated, the next eight episodes of the drama will be a roller coaster ride for Tristan as he continues trying to figure out family relationships while also pledging to become a member of Beta Kappa Nu. Plus, he’s back to being single. And I strongly suggest you all pay attention to one of the supporting characters that have been with Tristan from the beginning. Not to give too much away, but one of them has quite the surprise development come the season finale.

My Selfish Boyfriend Wants Me to Move with Him or Break Up

Dear Tavion,

My relationship is about to be over if my boyfriend doesn’t stop being a selfish a$$hole. Here’s what happened. He got offered a promotion at work that would take him to Austin, Texas, but we currently live in Charlotte. I have my own spot and he has his, but we’re both here. He’s all excited about the job and accepted the offer, without really thinking about my thoughts on it. I don’t want to move to Austin, and he knows that. To top it off, he claims to love me but says if I love him that I’d consider moving to Texas because I know he doesn’t like long-distance relationships. That statement right there really pissed me off, and we got into a blow up. I do love him, but I don’t like feeling I’m being forced to do something I don’t want to do. I feel like he’s forgetting I have a life outside of him. What do you think T?

I Love My Boyfriend but Hate Our DL Relationship

T,

I now know why my friends told me not to date DL guy. I’ve been in a relationship with my boyfriend for almost two years, and I love him like crazy, but I’m tired of being in the closet with him. When I want to go to gay spots like a bar or even a gay house party, he won’t go with me and tells me to go with my friends or tries to convince me I should stay in the house with him. If me and him go on dates in public, the restaurant can’t have romantic vibes and we can only sit at tables, not booths. We don’t take any pictures together, and the only person in my life he’s met is my best friend once and that was by accident. You probably think he has a wife or girlfriend, and I’m the side piece or some sh*t. But that’s not true and I know for a fact it’s just me.  He’s just so damn secretive about being gay.

My boyfriend has great qualities too. If I ever need anything, he’s always there. When I got laid off a while back, he covered my rent when I didn’t have it one month. When my dad was sick and I was stressed, he was very supportive. Even made sure I had meals in my apartment so I didn’t have to worry about cooking. Stuff like that is why I love him, and the sex is really good too. Wrapping this up, what should I do here? Do I tell my boyfriend to loosen up or I’m out?

I Cheated with a Coworker, Now My Boyfriend Wants Me to Quit My Job

Tavion,

I screwed up bad. I cheated on my boyfriend of two years with my coworker. It wasn’t like an ongoing thing, but  one night after coworker and I went to happy hour. When I told my boyfriend about it, he was pissed. He even broke up with me for a minute. A few weeks ago though, he decided to give us another chance. We are trying to work on us, but now he’s demanding I quit my job. He doesn’t want me around coworker, which I get. However, I like my job. If I love my boyfriend but really like my job what do I do?

After Four Years My Boyfriend Still Won’t Marry Me

Dear Tavion,

I’m having a problem with my boyfriend. We’ve been together for four years, and we have a great relationship. I love him more today than ever, and he says the same. The issue is he won’t commit to marrying me. He told me that he doesn’t want to be with anyone else, but marriage is not something he’s ready to do. Like how does he not know if he’s ready to marry me after four years? I’ve been trying not to blow up at him too much because when we first started dating he said he wasn’t sure about marriage to anyone, but might be open to it. I get that. But damn, what is holding him back? Do you think I should press him on it? Or do you think I should give up on my dreams of marriage?
