I've seen this video before. So inspiring, especially at a time when I'm dealing with a lot of situations that push me out of my comfort zone.
Thanks for sharing this, SwirlQueen. We could definitely use reminders like this from time to time.

@Dandelion100 I watch some of those to get routine and style ideas...but yeah, I don't really care about their monthly length checks. Lol.

Why don't these guys consider that writing these things actually repel black women away from black men?

@NeicyRodri Ewwww.. Just...yuck. The definition of a man-child.
@vivi_25 @cspeed You can't be serious :/
@mystikspiral "Then came reality.
Want to take a guess at which demographic has most actively sought to mentor me? Who pulls me aside most often to offer encouragement and guidance? Who challenges me to reach my full potential with stretch goals instead of saddling me with busy work? Who is the first to defend me when things go sideways? Who puts my name in the mouths of senior management during promotion discussions?
Conservative white men. Yes, you read that right. Republican-voting, gun-toting white men have been my biggest, most vocal advocates thus far."I have also had this experience. Yep, the people who are your allies can be anyone...and often not who you might expect.

@EqualOppLover @onmywayup I know! I applaud anyone who makes it through the entire thing.

His original video was 24 hours long. I thought that was crazy. But I'm sure Pharrell's willingness to do something different was instrumental to the popularity of the song.http://24hoursofhappy.com/

1 week, 4 days ago on QOTW: “How Can I Tell If He Likes Me?!”
@bellechose @Brenda55 I used to be that clueless until a year ago after reading Matthew Hussey's materials...seriously.
Gosh, this post reminds me of all time times in high school in college when guys were trying to show they liked me and I didn't get it. Oh, the stories I could tell...lol! The funny thing is that the guys who take this indirect approach are usually sooo sweet. Just got to be smart enough to notice and engage in the dance.
Anyway, YES he likes you. (Unless he acts like that with every girl he knows, but I doubt there are too many guys who would.) This is a no-brainer.
I wouldn't ask for his number outright (not my personality), but I like the suggestions about maybe giving him a card, asking if he's taken (let's avoid the drama, ladies!), compliment the heck out of him...
If you like him, and he's interested and available, go for it! He's probably trying to see if you return his interest so that he doesn't get in trouble for asking you out.
@bellechose Great advice!
@Lisa_Lisa I remember he said something about how there are many good black men and few good white men. He also said "Good luck finding a white man who understands your journey." It sounds a lot like something those anti-bwir trolls are always saying. I was surprised at first that it came out of his mouth...but after finding out more about him, not so much.
Ahh, here's the article where I read about it: http://interracialintersection.com/robin-thicke-says-most-white-men-wont-understand-you/

Looks are not that important to me either in a man, relative to shared values and upward mobility. I think the women who make fun of black women who are with average looking white men have priorities that simply don't match mine. Does judging a man largely based on looks serve those women well, though?

This is Hollyweird. I feel like there's a higher divorce rate there than the rest of the American population.
