@Yorkshireman in Michigan @Morenika Oh I do understand.  My Brother and his wife.  College Sweethearts, then they split apart. Years later when he matured, he found her in Florida.  So from the time she moved to Chicago from Florida, the relationship was solid.  He lived in Michigan.  However her job caused her to spend three weekends in Hong Kong every other month, even after he moved to Chicago to be with her.  She quit her executive job and now is at home in Chicago while trying to start their family.  Long distance relationships cultivation can work.   His plan was mapped for him and her...  I go yuk overtime my sister-in-law goes, "MYYYY HUSBAND".....  that is like every other word for her.......Love them both...

@Lady Cheetah @_Toni_ I love what you said... I agree...  I must admit I have been a naive fool once or thrice....  LOL  I am just hanging up my dating hat and concentrating on me.   I usually blame me when the predators come and in part that may be true.   I am told I am way too friendly and too nice.  Well I didn't believe being bitc$y (LOL) would land them either.  Maybe bitc$y does?  Hum.....  I am honest and upfront no game.  I hate games and it is the hated player that could get a broken leg.......

I always understood that there is more to intimacy than sex.  I understand that it is the mind, the soulfulness of the conversation as well as eye contact.  Meeting needs on a higher level should take place in order to get to that WOW factor. Great article.

Oh I have a true story about meeting the most gentle , sexy, Police office of Italian heritage.  He stopped me and asked me why I ran through the light.  I innocently said "Well if you said I did, I did".  He was so shocked that I did not yell, curse and scream at him as you know some sisters can do.  They will curse you, your mama, your family and all of the unborn children.  He said wow most people are yelling at me.  I hate I wrote this ticket.  I told him about my parents being officers and he said, what you should have told me that.  He started to apologize and I felt then as I should get out and hold his hand.  Again as I am shy, and find myself doing things out of the norm lately, I sent him an invite to see me speak at my toastmasters meeting.  He called a day to late.   He had to make sure that I was not just using him to get out of a ticket.  now ending,  we talked all the time and had planned dates, but he is concerned of what others might think if he dates me.   I told him to bad, he was missing out on a good person.

I do believe that childhood experiences shape who we like later in life.  It did for me.  I think that this is an excellent article and for the new blogger, what a great idea.  He is soo handsome and his daughter is just absolutely incredible.  I wish I had gone to school with this author as I would have stayed with hime through grade-school, high school, college and happily ever-after (LOL).  He will not be single for long.... And who love him has to love his children.  That is the whole package.

I as a counselor understand that it is important to remain in control of a group even a group of women.  I use to be a little mousey however, I can also take it to the street.  As a person who is also working on her Ph.D.  and recently diagnosed with Essential or in my case Familial Tremors, I dare anyone.  I have voice tremors, so sometimes it may come across like a stutter.  My heart also is in teaching.  I have been through the work place bullying where the person and others had to be told about, but I also fought back not what people think a typical African American woman would do, I went to leadership.  They did not want any lawsuits and these people were put in check.  Granted I did have verbals and they also knew that if I felt the threat of physical violence, I had the power.  (LOL)  I might have a strong dose of pepper spray waiting on you.  and just like yesterday, I had worked a very long day over and my voice was tired and my tremors were there, I was asking one lady a question when her friend said" Oh Spit it out".  I turned my head like the exorcist and told her politely, I have voice tremors.  Even though I have the Et disorder, it was non of her business and I get tired of smart arses like her.  She was embarrassed afterwards, I held my head up and kept on going.    Bullying regardless of personality, race, or for any reason should not be tolerated.  I will not have it....even on my worst tremor day.

I took the news of her death personally, as if I knew her personally.  But reading her poems, I guess I did know her personally.  I wept and thought what greatness we have lost.  She is a dignitary in her own rights.   How wonderful it is to know that she and I shared the same sky.

I would agree that brain and beauty is there.  All in one package.  I pray for her that the right man, who also is educated and successful will come along and has no games to play only admiration, love, kindness and respect.  He is not ready to meet you yet Misee but when he come, he will come correct in all ways.  Oh and from the Man above.....

OH how I can relate to this article.  I was married to a black man who made enough money to support us and comes from a stingy, selfish well-to-do family.  I worked and bad my own career, however, when I became ill, and my position was eliminated due to downsizing, my ex-husband and his father stated that I was lazy and did not want to work, I just wanted to be at home, and there was nothing wrong with me LOL.  Well I went into a state of depression, I found other jobs through temp agencies and was hired into a company only to be laid off because my direct boss lost our 10 million dollar account that we worked on.  Well i sank even further into depression because when I had to go home and say " Honey I was laid off again", he stated oh well.  During my time at home, My illness progressed, I was happy to cook and clean our home the way i wanted and able to grocery shop.  The entire time always searching for work.  Well my beloved ex-husband and his father plotted for my husband to leave me. As I was searching for a new home for us to upgrade into, he was seeing some one else.  


Its funny because even as a housewife by un-forseen circumstances, I was mocked and made to feel like a lazy sister all the while putting p with mental abuse.  M ex-husband use to say I was a Snobby B, even when service sucked at a restaurant, and I asked to see a manger, he told me i thought I was white and who was I.  Well he went over on an excursion recently to an Asian Island where men pay to meet women and brought a woman back here to marry.  LOL

I think that we must know our history in in order not to repeat it, yes.  No, Benedict does not owe anything as he did not personally commit the crime of slavery.  He can't help what he was born into.  We need to remember, but also, we need to not place blame on ancestors of the slave owners.  Slavery on the plantations are not happening now.  Their may be low wages and sweat shops, but their are no more physical chains and whippings by the old oak tree  Some one who is fighting the fight that was so so long ago can be slaves of their mind.

i dont know how I missed this article, but wow....  You are not alone.  I felt the same way and heard a lot of those same comments.  "Horse Face", hardly.....  I was always accepted by others, and not our own community.  So for the other community that see's the beauty in my skin and features..  I stick with that...  Being rejected can lead us to a lot of things and remembering the hurt can dredge up those exact moments as if we are back there in the same spot hearing the same thing over.  You are much adored by many and as I have told you in personal message, that you have changed my life and made me look at myself differently.  Thank you for bring these things to light....
