How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
Who makes the rules?
I am active on four online dating sites: POF.com, Match.com, AfroRomance.com, and SeniorsMeet.com. In this post, we are going to critique the main text part(s) of my online dating profiles with the aim of improving them and/or helping others create their own.
Some juicy fantasy erotica for your Sunday…
A boatload of you asked me to address the letter published in Essence.com from a black woman who alleged that her white husband called her racial slurs during sex. Many of you thought the letter was a complete fake, manufactured with every known cliche thrown at black women in order to preclude them from dating out.
BB&W special guest, Abrams discusses Interracial Relationships, Interfaith Love and Online Dating with Author Damona Hoffman, a columnist for JDate and the Huffington Post has a new book called “Spin Your Web.”
Are we all ever out of our element…. Geez. I thought I would share with you the wonderful experience with being out on the road with 18 teenagers and one other adult. Now, picture this group. 18 kids from Detroit (most of whom have never had a chance to get out of the city and go anywhere), 15 girls and 3 young men. Most of them 18 or older, only a couple are 17. One tall (she is over 6 feet), athletic (she played major college basketball), drop-dead gorgeous black woman. And me…. Creaky old gimpy-kneed white guy. Oh, for ease I will refer to my fellow chaperone as Ms. Jones.
R.K. Bryant reached out to BB&W because she is an unsure, up and coming author of erotica who observed our penchant for essays on the weekend. Here’s Part One of a story she’s working on. Feel free to give her input.
Author’s note: I wrote this essay when my daughter Wallis was in the second grade. She is now a junior in high school, but her views have not changed on this issue…she still warns me not to get angry and scapegoat others or myself for mistakes and blunders that happen. She has learned and absorbed these important epiphanies, and I share them with readers of this web page.
It’s been suggested that we release “marriage” from government, give it entirely & symbolically over to religious institutions, and use civil unions under law for all couples gay and straight. I would love to live in that world. Perfectly logical. Hell to implement.”Marriage” is an understood concept universally, even by it’s strongest critics. With thousands of years of history predating all the major religions and implemented planet-wide (with varying standards), what it means doesn’t have to be explained, and expectations in law and society are quite stable. Full faith and credit amongst the states, and almost perfect cross-border recognition between countries.
One (very) conservative man’s opinion…
I’m recommending BB&W use their clout to support someone who’s been one of our biggest cheerleaders, which shouldn’t be hard, because he gives some of the best relationship advice I’ve ever heard. And now you can get much of that advice compressed in Matthew’s upcoming book, GET THE GUY, to be released April 9; book review upcoming.
More artistry from our favorite BB&W poet…
I’m not crazy and it wasn’t a hopeful presumption on my part or a case of mistaken identity.
Puffy was running back up the block towards me; he grabbed me in a hug and twirled me in the air when we reached each other…
It is a strange lot to be a black woman in American society. She was brought to this country to be an unpaid worker, a concubine and a broodmare. Her body and her sexuality has been reviled and experimented on but from the various brilliant shades of brown black people come in, is curiously loved.
