We’ve asked single Black men to share some of the real perceptions floating around about dating Black women, to help jumpstart the conversation and dispel some of the myths out there. Unfortunately Black women often have so many things we are trying to juggle that it can sometimes become second nature to not smile or take a moment to say hello.
Fun can take a backseat when we’re fighting to pay bills, continue our education and make a name for ourselves.
There’s not as much pressure on him to marry until he’s ready, but often they feel Black women are focused on marriage from the start – as we should be.
Yet another example of something we’re often judged for that is actually not a negative dating quality.
In 1843, author Charles Dickens sets out to write and self-publish a novel that he hopes will revive his career.
He spends the next six weeks bringing Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and other classic characters to life in "A Christmas Carol."A Christmas sequel to Bad Moms.
Often Black women have been raised to keep our poise and act like a lady at all times, especially in public and while under pressure.
However, Black men tell us they love the freedom and ability to know their woman can be flexible and go with the flow in certain more spontaneous situations.
Is there some truth to the perception that some of us can overlook a Black man or not be as uplifting because instead we think they need to have already arrived before we give them a chance?Dispelling these myths and introducing them to great single friends we know is the best next step.
