Sup brothas, It's Ya Man African King! One of the select few Cypher Avenue OGs! Pretty much everyone who's been active on Cypher Avenue since its incarnation knows that I am the (now 25 year old) virgin on the site lol. I am happy that many of the guys on there have given me so much advice via one-on-one text message, GroupMe, private message on Cypher Avenue, Google Hangouts, Skype, etc. I met up with 5 other Cypher Avenue members this week in Atlanta for dinner which was awesome! Anyway during one of our conversations, we discussed about dating and relationships. We brought up a topic that was discussed on Podcast #8, the first roundtable podcast on Cypher Avenue, about whether or not having a hoe phase is necessary. One of the Cypher Avenue members (26 yrs old) mentioned how he has been in a relationship for four years. He has enjoyed his time in the relationship but he did say that he wishes that he did see what was out there. Then another one of the guys at the dinner said that he feels it is important to date and see what is out there. Not necessarily having a lot of sex with random people but it is necessary to not put so much pressure on a dude and having huge expectations. 3 of the other guys there with me said that you will have to kiss many frogs before you find your prince and that I have a lot to learn. Some guys said that we have ideas about what we think we may like as far as looks, personality, sex, etc but we never know until we try it. So what do you guys think? Hoe Phase or Nah?
