Introducing Guest Blogger Nina Lovehall
I'm Nina Lovehall. Yeah, that name sounds vaguely familiar, but not quite right, huh, Love Jones fans?
In the movie that came out in the late 90s, the character's name was actually Nina Mosley (played wonderfully by the fabulous Nia Long), and Nina Lovehall would have been her last name if she actually married the other main character, Darius Lovehall (played by the perpetually young-looking Larenz Tate--he has to be in is what, late 40s by now?).
The end of the movie kind of leaves you hanging, wondering if they got past all of their flaws and hang ups for real and actually tied the knot after all that kissing in the rain in the closing scene.
I named myself that because I, like many of you reading this blog, still believe in the dream of finding a partner who is going to love you unconditionally, be your rock when you need it and help you raise brilliant, beautiful children someday. So even though none of us knows what happened to Nina and Darius, the name is kind of an affirmation that even though none of us know how this love thing is going to turn out, we are going to get our happy ending, and won't mind getting our hair wet because we found the real thing.
So anyway, from time to time, to give my girl FabFem a break, I'm going to put my two cents in about relationships and the pursuit of a good one.
