I love getting notes like this:
Hi Christelyn! Just wanted to share my success story! My sister told me about your blog a few years ago when I first arrived to the DMV area. Dating absolutely sucked for me. I kept running into men that were looking for a hook up or to be a “dependent” (I’m an Army Officer). After reading and watching your blogs, I stepped out on faith and tried the interracial dating scene. It was awkward at first but after one year of trying I finally met an amazing man! We are getting married this year on May 27th in Maryland!! In true military fashion, I am being moved to another state in July…but you know what?…He’s coming along!! I have NEVER dated anyone who was willing to move around while I completed my career!! He is a retired Army Officer as well so he gets it!! Thank you Christelyn for inspiring us to get out there and spread our wings!!
In a time where the GAT-DL (Guardians of All Things Dark & Lovely) are actively lobbying for black women to stay in their place and struggle through, this is so refreshing.
