Black Men: Black Women Are Worthy of Love Too

Not too long ago, I read a post from a man that outlined the reasons why he would only date women of any other race except black women. As you may have guessed, this person happened to be a black man. This wasn’t particularly anyone I knew, rather it was a post that had been circulating online and had received considerable backlash from readers, specifically from women of color.

Why “Untitled Relationships” May Be Hindering You from Finding the Right Person

I recall a period of time before reaching my early twenties when my friends and I made a conscious decision to not try to get into a “serious” relationship.  My best friend vowed that she only wanted casual flings, and nothing but casual flings.

We see you not pressuring us to be in a relationship we may not be ready for. We see you.

How Do You Deal When You Lose the Love of Your Life?

On March 27th 2015, Ms. Dolores lost her husband. We weren’t present at church to hear the news. I woke up that Sunday morning to a text from a youth group friend informing me of the recent death. “I’m sorry about Ms. Dolores husband,” it read. Truth is, I was confused and didn’t realize who Ms. Dolores was. At the moment, I didn’t realize that Ms. Dolores was the woman who sat a few seats down from us at church. I didn’t realize that she was the woman who gave hugs and talked to my family every Sunday. It was simply a misunderstanding. I knew the face, but I didn’t know the name.
