Wow, Christelyn, at first I didn't recognize you. I thought you were a model for the product. You are looking fabulous.

Whew! And my cardiologist JUST decreased the dosage of my blood pressure medication.  I may have to take two pills this morning after viewing this presentation. So many flavors to choose from.....I'm overwhelmed.

@zafera I was thinking the same thing..Brandy was first.  I'm just glad to see black women portrayed as desirable.

@DWB I use to sell shoes and forgot about the Brooks brand.  Thanks.  I use to run track in HS also, I was a sprinter though.

@RhondaSpeights I googled Fleet Feet and there are none in my area :-(  A coworker did mention a shoe store for runners, however I forgot the name.


When I use to pick up/drop my granddaughter at preschool, there was a facility across the street that was a running club. I use to see runners entering and exiting all the time. Maybe I'll check it out.


Thanks for the advice!

Well said...it's not about race. One of the reasons, I plan to wait until I'm married before I become intimate with a man is I'm the classic example of a woman who becomes emotionally attached after sex. So why would I want to put myself in such a precarious situation by "hooking up" with someone?

I've decided that I'm going to take up running (please no laughs from the audience). I'm building up my wardrobe; I bought an awesome sports bra from Victoria Secret and Target had a great sale on athletic shorts and tees.


Now, I'm shopping for shoes. Any suggestions from those who run? My boss swears by Asics Gel shoes.

I just tried coconut oil and so far so good. I usually use just a mixture of water and olive oil at night and a Shea Butter product in the morning.

@SweetGardenia My preference is for younger guys because guys around my age "act old"....


Yes, Younger guys are my preference for the same reason.

Older men usually try to "holla"at me on  the online dating sites. Some even in their sixties...unfortunately most men my age, late  forties/early fifties don't look attractive, at least the ones who attempt to contact me.


However, offline is a different story, I mostly attract white men in their 20's  and thirties! While it is an ego  booster,  it baffles me. Black men in the same age group rarely express any interest which is fine, the  feeling is mutual. I can only conclude that most younger white men are clueless to the wonderful aging process of black women. They assume if a black woman looks 30 years old, she MUST be 30 years old.  Though I prefer younger men, fifteen years my junior is the cut off.

@MySmile It's time black women start thinking themselves as prizes and trophies...


I concur, not only are we uniquely beautiful and alluring but complement that with intelligence and the ability to be extremely loyal to our mates and you have the prize every man dreams about.

Doc, I agree with you but society at large does not view black women as a trophy. Of course, the last laugh is on society.

@BeautyIAM 


Right?? Why was this garbage even published. It's all speculation on part of the author. The synopsis is black women are so undesirable that we are thankful that a white man would marry us. And we hold on to the marriage no matter how toxic because we realized it's our last opportunity to  experience love.


Yet, wouldn't that  same logic apply to when black women are married to black man?

@Karla congratulations on 22 years of marriage. I always look forward to your contribution to this site.


I can only speak for myself but when it comes to the BB&W residents who have successful interracial marriages giving pearls of wisdom and advice, I stop and take notes. When my time comes to meet that one special person (husband), I will hopefully have a repertoire  of wisdom and knowledge to help blueprint a successful marriage for me.

@Browncow congrats on your nine years of marriage. I, too through observation believe black women are more selective with non-black men. Many believe there's some sordid under current reason why a non-black men finds them attractive or even shows interest in them.

@itsgoodtobeme I really like your response. That there's a connection (compatibility) even though the bw/wm pairing is the least accepted.


Ralph Richard Banks, author of IS MARRIAGE FOR WHITE PEOPLE states this in his book. He states that educated black women are more compatible with Sebastian, Brett and Brody who sit next to them in college than with Tyrone, Dionte, and Lashawn back home in the hood.

@kennaGransberg Wow, this is the sister of your mother or father being so toxic toward you???


I would surmised she is jealous, insecure and down right unhappy with her life. Actually she is envious; envious people believe if  "I don't have it ( happiness,love, success, marriage etc.), you shouldn't have it either."

An amazing introduction to your book, l look forward to reading the rest of the  of your story. In 1974, I was in the basement of my family's military housing unit feeding pieces of garments through a wringer of an old-fashioned washing machine when I became distracted and my hand was sucked in. I too, remember screaming in pain and horror as my mother flew down a flight of stairs to my rescue.


Of course, that is where the similarities end...I only have a scar on my hand as the result. So that is why I'm looking forward to reading about your brave and heroic journey as a SURVIVOR and very strong woman.

My ideal viewing would be on a sailboat  IN The middle of the Gulf of Mexico with a hawt guy showing me how to use the telescope. LOL
