Be wary of vague statements! I had a guy say "lets go for drinks." I picked out a bar and everything, took train all the way there, waited for him in the bar. He arrived (late) and took me to his car where he opened up a brown paper bag with two small bottles of rum. -_-

I met my husband on Tagged. But before we met, I dated about 6 other guys from the app and only one other guy had potential. It's hard out here girl. But I feel you on all of the advice you gave. Great vid. TFS

TheTrio22 (2 years ago)
I def didn't know you were doing Veda vids, I'm doing all this catching up. I'm here for the dating vids! If you're looking to subbies for ideas for the rest of your vids how about dealing with relocation, I'm about to do that for a job, and I know you touched on that before but updates and experiences on that would be awesome. And hair/wig videos? I knooooooo you said you stopped doing them but... come onnnnn. I really like the toni wigs you've been rocking so I guess hair care underwigs, styling wigs etc. .. and nails? :D

My boyfriend and I met on tinder, initially we were casual because I was attending school in a different city- now it's been two years! I never expected for a successful relationship to manifest from a dating app, but i'm glad it did.

Here is an add on to Jouelzy's advice. If you are willing to make your vagina "friendly", please buy yourself one of those at home HIV/VD kits so you can be careful. If you're too scared or embarrassed to tell him to take one, then leave your legs closed
Erin H (2 years ago)
Does the tip about Nigerian men only apply to them? I'm seeing a guy from Cameroon now & I've asked and asked again about any wives I should know about. Maybe I need to be using the right verbiage lol

Girl I lived in Ghana for almost two years. But I am so repulsed by Ghanaian men that I would rather be stuck carrying around a cockroach for the rest of my life. Than marry a Ghanaian man. Like the cornballishness is so real with them it isn't even funny.

Why do white guys on Tinder post pictures with a woman or a picture with kids and explain, the woman is my sister or the kid is my nephew. You know you can change your pictures right? Unless you REALLY love your sister or nephew, then carry on.
minorka2 (2 years ago)
cuz they lying. it's probably their kid
TheLifemission (2 years ago)
Yes, the Nigerian men thing is so important. They sometimes have a whole wife and kids back in Nigeria and never say anything about it.
habitually live (2 years ago)
Me and my friends have met some cool people of tinder. But I have to say, be cautious of matching with men of other races. My friends and I have been fetishized on multiple occasions.....smh
deb1920 (2 years ago)
My old college roommate came to visit me in New Orleans and fell in love with a saxophone player at a club on Magazine Street. We luckily talked her our of going home with him that night. But when she went to go see him on Frenchman the next night, we couldn't talk her out of it again. I told her, when you come back to my place, HAVE HIM GO TO THE MALL AND CALL ME. I wake up the next morning and she's in my apartment. I guess our gay guy friend was her accomplice. Now this RANDOM dude knows where I live, but you can go back to NYC and be ok. Really, though? Yeah, never again.

I'm on tinder now and it's been pretty interesting so far. I had one guy offer me a foot rub a few seconds into our convo...um blocked. I've met one guy who was decent. He had nice things to say about lemonade lol and did recommend we meet in a public place. We haven't met yet but will soon. It's too many white men on tinder like wayyyy too many. I'm only interested in black and or Hispanic guys so it's a struggle. It's always fun when they link their Instagram pages and you get to see all hotep or misogynistic memes they post smh.

lmaooooo @ Jamaican men, story of my life, smh...but there are a few good ones out there.
Antoinette Daniels (2 years ago)
I've tried online dating.... I would think those apps like Tinder are just for hook ups. I see some people found relationships. Hey I guess anything is possible. When I did do online dating I approached it differently. I only dated people I could sense a strong connection with even online. I just followed my instincts. I was right about that. It resulted in one relationship....It didn't last but it was a good experience. One guy we are still cool friends. As far as Jamaican men they might be cheaters but they are usually loyal to the women they are with (loyal meaning they stick by the women)....and are much more likely to want a family. That's my experience.....

Summerbeeuty (2 years ago)
Lol. I have 1 pic but I have bio. In my bio I said "Do you really need a lot of pics" I look just like the one pic you see. A bunch of pics don't mean ish in my opinion. I have been on tinder for 5 days lol
Alcene Alcene (2 years ago)
Cosigning the Jamaican men thing and I'm Jamaican. They can be great but may the good lord be with you in finding one that doesn't feel like it's alright to have a wifey and a half dozen maties(side chicks). I've had success and epic failure on Okcupid. Never tried Tinder and I don't want to.
MissMEB (2 years ago)
I would recommend getting a Goggle voice number. They are free. You link your phone number the Goggle voice number and give out the GV instead of your real phone number when meeting folks. That way of they are crazy they don't have your real number and you can block them easily on GV. Also when you meet someone from online for the first time never make it a sit down dinner type or meeting. There is nothing worse then sitting across the able from someone you are not attracted to or worse yet lied about how they looked. So make the first meeting a book store or if you have to run an errand at Target or something, meet him there. Make it clear ahead of time if either of you is not interested after that first meeting there is no need to go any further. Finally if you do decide to go on a date with the person always have someone call you (mom, a friend, whoever you trust and you know is reliable). The call is to first make sure you are OK and second to give you a way out of the date if you realize that you don't like the person. Some people are to shy to just get up and leave so this really works for them.
Mariyam Bashir (2 years ago)
I'm going to keep that GV tip in my pocket for other situations too. Never knew you could do that!

+Jouelzy the sideline app works for me when I don't want to give my real number out. You can text and call through the app and it doesn't give you away when they attempt to get in touch with you.
Jouelzy (2 years ago)
OH Yes I do this!!! Only problem is when they call...it says "tryng to connect to Google Voice number" lol, kind of ruins it. Great tips! It's pretty much everything I do.

Rae Mckinzie (2 years ago)
Tinder, OkCupid, POF, I call all of these "dating" (hookup) apps Find-a-F*ckboi. Because that's essentially what you're getting. When I make a profile that says I'm NOT looking for sex and get nothing but vulgar invitations to "come on over and ride this d*ck." Or when I tell these white boys I am NOT here for your Jungle Fever fantasy and still get the "I've never been with a black girl, I bet you give good h*ead" nonsense. NOOOOOOPE, devil is a liar! I guess I'm preparing to be single for life, cause I'm not settling for that!

My friend has had to delete the app because she's gone on so many horrible dates. Honestly, I laughed when she told me them because they were so bad they belonged in a movie. I literally couldn't believe men were that appalling.

I went to HS with my husband but didn't know him until he found me on FB & IG. We went on a date & the rest is history. Definitely give it a try & be safe. Never tell them where you live on the first date, meet them at a public place.

Sinead Murphy (2 years ago)
Erm. Like, as a Jamacian I was low key offended not gonna lie...there are plenty of Jamaican men who can be monogamous. I think yardies and Jamaicans are not synonymous. Nearly all the grown men in my family have been with their respective wives/partners for decades, so don't sleep on Jamaican men, find you a good one! And they can cook too!
Shannon Stratton (2 years ago)
But you'll like white women from what I was told, at least that's all I see over here in the usa

Bintou Waiga (2 years ago)
I really enjoyed this video. I've never online dated but I really like the end where you said "Don't let anyone police your body." So so so important for young black women to hear that because our bodies are sexualized yet we're simultaneously shamed if we are perceived to be "too promiscuous".

LolasCurls (2 years ago)
OMG, Jouelzy! You called it for the Nigerian guys though! I must admit, I'd been gotten by an Ethiopian who pulled a similar trick: long-term gf not listed on social media sites! Seriously good tips! Another tip is just keep swiping right if there's more than 1 guy in their profile pic: are we supposed to be mind-reader to know which one is you? Please!

Yes you know in Accra EVERY man had the push back hairline and if his hairline was flourishing he was a major thot moreso than the already flamboyant thottish behavior of men there.
38ktgold (2 years ago)
Oh my god When I finally started dating after my ex I was devastated by how many men in their early 20s have receding hairlines! Like are y'all really that stressed in life? Just go bald and get a beard 😩 2 - A tinder match asks me out on a date so I say "okay, where we are going to go" and he says "idk I don't want to spend too much money". Like really? THATS what you choose to say to me in this time of copious groupon dinners and free summer festivals? Tacky AF.
