Someone’s Facebook post – ”Is it too much to ask for a educated, goal driven black man that takes care of his responsibilities, and is honest and not a cheater….but at the same time is not a lame, can protect me if something pops off, could hurt me but wouldn’t dare dream of laying a finger on me, and can put me in my place when I start talking sideways? Does this person exist?” Ug! Whatever!
There are plenty of qualified single black men. Many are here in Louisville. They have great personalities, know how to treat a woman and are looking to settle down. But here’s the issue – for every 1 black man, there are probably at least 7 black eligible women. So, instead of women yapping about the lack of black men, maybe they need to spend their time stepping up their game so that they can attract one of those eligible (and fine) black men. If all you do is complain about life and love, why would anyone want to give you a chance? A black man doesn’t owe you anything.
We need to quit blaming the opposite sex and assuming something is wrong with him. Some women need to look in the mirror and figure out why they haven’t been asked out on a date in years. Women, give the nice guy a chance. If you’re truly looking to settle down, you’ll find that his genuine, caring characteristics can go a long way. Men, let down your guard and man up! Women want to feel appreciated. Quit holding up the walls in clubs and strike up a meaningful conversation. Isn’t it also interesting that men look so much more attractive once they are in a relationship? You weren’t interested in him when he tried to be your friend, so quit sweating him now that he’s found someone that appreciates him.
We spend so much time complaining about the opposite sex that we often let someone with great potential walk right past us. Beyonce and Denzel are not going to enter your life, so quit waiting for them. Give someone a chance that you normally wouldn’t. Think about the vibe that you put off and try not to bring past baggage to a new situation. We all want and deserve to be loved. Black love is in the air – but you have to clear your personal space before it can enter in.
