Black women have a hard time dating

You’ll see how quick we are to point out our issues with the other gender, but rarely accept hard truths about our gender or do anything to change them.

What if we started thinking of solutions, instead of just the problems?

After hearing a disturbing amount of Black men say they wouldn’t go out with Black women, Pace University student Briana Browne decided to explore the topic on camera.

One of the biggest hurdles Primus says she has to cross is getting Black women to open their mindset when dating, and give their counterparts a chance.

During a discussion on her company message board, Shae Primus shocked members by suggesting women give men who have experimented with same-sex relationships a chance.

I heard that statement numerous times and I wanted to give the Black females an opportunity to voice their opinion on it; wanted to get their perspective,” she explained.

“In addition, I wanted Black females to see this video and not feel discouraged when they heard that statement and of course to teach Black males a little something,” While it’s worth noting that the overwhelming majority of Black married men are married to Black women, this anti-Black women sentiment seems to be growing among some younger men.

Besides sexual history, Primus says women strike men off their potential lists for superficial issues such as not having a car, or “enough money” or even too many children.

“You can’t love people by qualifying standards; allow people to grow. When you help someone build, it teaches you and builds your character, and it also means the man will have loyalty to you.

Because, as a people who have historically received so much hatred, we, Black women and men, so desperately deserve love and respect.

Here are the common issues Black men mention as to why they decide to not date Black women, where the issues stem from and how both sides can own up and fix them.

It’s not likely to happen like that at this age, and on the rare occasions when it does, the relationship is usually based on nothing more than lust. A mature woman who values herself doesn’t want to date a man who’s a victim or stuck in the past.

Would you rather crash and burn or have a slow sizzle that bursts into hot flames over time? She’s going to walk away and find a grownup guy.◊♦◊Guys, correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe there’s a ‘lid for every pot’, a body type for every guy. Those things are far more important than a Harvard or Yale degree, or whether or not he speaks Mandarin.◊♦◊People in big cities say it’s hard to meet anyone.
