You know Miami stripper Skrawberry for her rap skills, her political commentary,

and of course, her sexy moves on the pole. Now, you'll also know her

for her sound advice. In this weekly column, Skraw responds to readers'

questions about life, love, and beyond. Got a question for Skraw? Hit

Hey Skrawberry,

All my friends say I'm crazy, but I can't help who I'm attracted to. I'm a nice guy, I work hard to get ahead, and I'm doing OK for myself, I think. I'm 26, an average guy (people compare me to Ryan Gosling without the blue eyes). I'm working on my master's at FIU. I live alone (in a condo on the beach). I have a great job (50k/yr + benefits), and I'm pretty happy with life, except for one thing: I love "bad" girls, but they don't take me seriously.

Ever since I can remember, I've been attracted to the Trina and Lil'

Kim types, and all I can ever bring home are girls who do yoga and like

to cuddle. I really want a girl who's tough, knows what she wants, and

will do what it takes to get it. I try talking to girls at the beach and

at the clubs, and all of them just sort of laugh at me for trying.

I can't change who I am, and I can't change what I'm attracted to. What am i supposed to do?

Average Joe

Average Joe,

First of all, stop bragging about what you have, because you're not supposed to be 26 and still livin' at home with ya mama.

Second of all, stop calling yourself a damn nerd, 'cause it sound like you feelin' sorry for yourself for some strange reason! Don't no "bad girl" want a duck. Learn how to put your foot down. Spend some money if you have to. Not even a bad girl can say no to a nice bag or two (just to reel 'em in, of course). You gotta make the woman who you want, want you!

Besides, if you can't turn a ho into a housewife, turn a housewife into a ho! Get what you can get and make the best of it.

Good luck,
