Ten Sure Signs You Are Not "Dating 101"

Antoinette Nyiann Lawson

I am a 25-year-old Bronx Native currently residing in Upstate, New York. I graduated from the University at Albany in Albany, New York in 2001 with my Bachelors of Arts in Sociology. I than went on to pursue my career in the Human Service fields. Throughout my career, I have dealt with persons that suffered from homelessness, mental illness, and substance abuse. Despite the obvious stressors, believe it or not, they all dealt with a broken heart. Some have actually attributed their situations based on relationships that had gone bad; hence, equaling a broken heart. This book was designed to be an acting agent of foreshadows. I figured if one could see what was to come before it came, they could take preventive measures to prevent the trauma of heartache. Writing from a woman's perspective, I wanted to help women embrace their womanhood and finally be able to put themselves first. For so long we see the "super woman" that works, cooks, cleans, and tends to the children. She tends to get so focused on doing things to appease everyone else, that she forgets to do basic things for herself. Slowly but surely she tends to slip into a stage of depression without even realizing it. What's worst than a woman who feels like she has but aside her goals, hopes and dreams to make her family a stronger unit? Hence, she comes home one day, and realizes that house is no longer a home. What I wanted to draw out of this book is a sense of empowerment and remembrance of the "Women's Movement". Sometimes as women we get so caught with a man that we forget what it means to be a woman. We forget that a healthy relationship consist of two persons trying to come to some type of medium. Not one person trying to come to some type of medium. When everything is said and done, and the last page of this book is read, I want women to walk away with a sense of empowerment and remembrance of what it is to be a woman.
