    Couple Snuggling

    A  poll was conducted by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Harvard School of Public Health yielded some interesting findings. Their results about the dating lives of single African Americans (respondents 18-49, widowed, divorced, or never married)  recently found that single Black men were much more likely to say they were looking for a long-term relationship (43 percent) compared to single black women (25 percent).

    There are many possible explanations and theories about these results.  Maybe the benefits of long-term relationships are obvious.  The bottom line is:

    Question your assumptions about Black relationships.  Stereotypes and myths prevail and this is just one more piece of evidence to demonstrate the fact that Black men desire loving, long-term relationships, too.  Maybe even more so than Black women.

  • 06/12/13--02:01: Black Love is Black Wealth
  • Nikki Giovanni


    By Nikki Giovanni b. 1943 Nikki Giovanni

    childhood remembrances are always a drag
    if you’re Black
    you always remember things like living in Woodlawn
    with no inside toilet
    and if you become famous or something
    they never talk about how happy you were to have
    your mother
    all to yourself and
    how good the water felt when you got your bath
    from one of those
    big tubs that folk in chicago barbecue in
    and somehow when you talk about home
    it never gets across how much you
    understood their feelings
    as the whole family attended meetings about Hollydale
    and even though you remember
    your biographers never understand
    your father’s pain as he sells his stock
    and another dream goes
    And though you’re poor it isn’t poverty that
    concerns you
    and though they fought a lot
    it isn’t your father’s drinking that makes any difference
    but only that everybody is together and you
    and your sister have happy birthdays and very good
    and I really hope no white person ever has cause
    to write about me
    because they never understand
    Black love is Black wealth and they’ll
    probably talk about my hard childhood
    and never understand that
    all the while I was quite happy

  • soul_train with Donsoul-train-crowd

    Don Cornelius gave us Soul Train, a musical showcase that promoted Black culture, dance, and style from 1971 to 2006. In its 35-year history, the show primarily featured performances by R&B, soul, and hip hop artists. The Soul Train line is still an active phenomenon.  We rarely see African Americans dancing and enjoying themselves like this on public television today.  Is there a modern Soul Train equivalent?  Don Conrnelius ended each Soul Train show wishing us all:

    “Love, Peace, and Soul.”

    Never lonely with you only, time will always be our friend

    We’ll always reminisce, kissing in the glow of love…

    In this video, Qualified But Single:  Why Good Men Remain Single, Dr. Dwayne Buckingham interviews Black men who seem “qualifed” as suitable partners but remain single.   Some of the underlying factors include:

    • Having a successful career does not make a man qualified to be in a relationship
    • Some men are successful in their careers but lack the emotional capability to connect in a meaningful with a woman
    • Some men have not healed from previous relationships that ended badly

  • 07/03/13--03:00: Ain’t Nobody
  •  Rufus and Chaka Khan

    “Ain’t Nobody” is a 1983 hit single by Rufus & Chaka Khan.

    Captured effortlessly
    That’s the way it was
    It happened so naturally
    I did not know it was love
    The next thing I felt was you
    Holdin’ me close
    What was I gonna do?
    I let myself go

    And now we’re flyin’ through the stars
    I hope this night will last forever

    I’ve been waitin’ for you
    It’s been so long
    I knew just what I would do
    When I heard your song
    It filled my heart with your bliss
    Gave me freedom
    You knew I could not resist
    I needed someone

    And now we’re flyin’ through the stars
    I hope this night will last forever

    Ain’t nobody
    Loves me better
    Makes me happy
    Makes me feel this way
    Ain’t nobody
    Loves me better, than you

    I wait for night time to comeAnd bring you to me
    Can’t believe I’m the one
    I was so lonely
    I feel like no one could feel
    I must be dreamin’
    I want this dream to be real
    I need this feelin’

    I make my wish upon a star
    And hope this night will last forever

    Ain’t nobody
    Loves me better
    Makes me happy
    Makes me feel this way
    Ain’t nobody
    Loves me better
    Ain’t nobody
    Loves me better, than you

    And first you put your arms around me
    Then you put your charms around me
    I can’t resist this sweet surrender
    Oh! My nights are warm and tender
    We stare into each other’s eyes
    And what we see is no surprise
    Got a feelin’ most would treasure
    And a love so deep we cannot measure

    Ain’t nobody
    Loves me better
    Makes me happy
    Makes me feel this way

  • 07/07/13--20:40: Are You a Desperate Dater
  • Couple at Party

    While both men and women can be desperate daters,  Charyn Gant  and Dahmenah M., give specific advice to women in their book, The Game Changers: How To Date Men in the 21st Century They state:

    It could be that Desperate Dating behaviors are creating your loss of POWER.   Let’s talk about the word desperate.   Definition of “desperate”:

    1. Reckless or dangerous because of despair or urgency.
    2. Having an urgent need, desire, etc.
    3. Extreme or excessive.
    4. Having no hope; giving into despair.

    1. Given a man your body without truly knowing who he was as a person?
    2. Ever let a man you really don’t know, who has never taken you out on a date; constantly come over to your home to have sex, then leave?
    3. Dated a man that cannot commit to you because he’s committed to another?
    4. Dated a man that cannot take care of himself so you take care of him?
    5. Dated or continue to date a man that was/ is physically, mentally and emotionally abusive to you?
    6. Continually dated a man that you have caught in several lies because you believe you really like/ love him?
    7. Have you ever been afraid to tell a man what you are looking for in a partner/ mate/ lover/ husband?
    8. Chosen a man out of desperation or fear of being alone?
    9. Rationalized away or made excuses for his negative behaviors instead of trusting your instincts?
    10. Chased men instead of allowing a man to chase or court you?

    If you answered “Yes” to 3 or more questions, you ARE a “Desperate Dater.”   The reason why it’s necessary for you to find out if you are a “Desperate Dater” is because with self-awareness comes change and with change comes a better life.

    Remember:  men can answer these questions and be desperate daters, too! And nobody, male or female, likes a date someone who is desperate. Remind yourself of Earth’s abundance and keep faith in Black love.

  • Most Useful Asset

    From 1979-2009, the ability to empathize (feel what others are feeling) and take perspectives (see from another’s point of view) dropped 48%.  According to psychologist Sara Konrath, empathy paradox refers to “increasing disconnection in the age of connection.”   Although it may be challenging, especially with technology, let’s stay connected to each other.
