THE MAN is anything blocking the way of your destiny.
.... It's basically a circumstance trying ta hold you down.
And those obstacles can take many forms. These are a few of mine.

The 3 P's: Provide, Profess, Protect

Steve Harvey: Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man

We love you, but how we demonstrate that love is what I call the three Ps of love: We profess, we provide and we protect.
That is how a man -- if he loves you -- this is how you can tell he loves you: He provides for you. Whatever his economic structure is, he provides for you and he will give you whatever he can. He will profess. If you have been dating a guy for six months, he has a title for you. If after six months, he is still calling you a friend, he has no plans for you. It doesn't take us six months to figure out if you are the one. We are just not that difficult. We are simple people.
The last P is protect. He will let nothing happen to you within his means. A man loves in threes, if he tells you he loves you, but he doesn't protect or provide for you, he is just telling you what you want to hear to get what he wants. He doesn't really love you.


  1. I keep wanting to not like this man, but I think he's right here.

    Three people I'm keeping my eye on:
    Steve Harvey
    Tyler Perry

    They have the ear of black women as it relates to programming, and that makes me automatically cautious....some type of Black Trinity or somethin....

    *goes back under the manhole cover*

  2. I agree with the three P's, but this book provides a much more in-depth look at how men think and how some women can actually keep the men they want by establishing boundaries as to what behaviours they will and will not accept. Men, according to this book, are not really interested in women who are pushovers. And, in my experience of non-african American males, this is correct.

    Blessings to all.


  3. I couldn't agree with you anymore : )

  4. This has gvn women wingz....

  5. I have a good guy but he cant provide

  6. I have a guy who provides and protects but has not profess...smh

  7. I too have one who is good...his 3 P's have been lacking lately though...when I brought this up, of course I'm just being silly.

  8. What to do with a man lacking one of the P's? What if he can't provide? What to do if he has not professed?

  9. This may not sound fair, because it’s not

    But did you know that you can be a guy’s dream girl...

    I mean, you can literally check off every box on his “perfect woman” list...

    But if you mess up this one thing, he’ll drop you the second another option comes along?

    My friend James Bauer discovered this missing “secret ingredient” all men are constantly searching for in a woman.

    And most women have no clue it exists because guys aren’t even aware of it.

    We just KNOW when it’s missing.

    ===> The “Secret Ingredient” to obsessive love <=====

    The really cool thing is, when you know how to give a man this “secret ingredient”...

    It will send a shockwave of desire for you straight to his brain and he will HAVE to have you.

    In fact, when you do this... watch his face light up, almost as if he’s just been zapped.

    It’s that moment when he says to himself “Where have you BEEN all my life?”

    Every woman should know this. Check it out here:
