Bio not provided
I've been on a few interracial dating sites. The profiles I never look at are the ones that attempt to use "witty" phrases like, Crazy for Chocolate, Cocoa for my Milk, Ivory for Ebony, Lookin For My Ebony Queen....puleeeese! stop!!! Just so corny! Also when guys include pics of their children, I guess as proof that they've procreated with a woman of another race. Oh, and when a guy only has ONE pic in their profile...for some reason that annoys me.

From Yahoo Education Dictionary:
Definition of yoke-
"A crossbar with two U-shaped pieces that encircle the necks of a pair of oxen or other draft animals working together."
As Blanc2 pretty much stated, animals of equal kind or size were yoked together for easier transport. They were yoked (attached) together so they could be moved easier. Right now, you wouldn't yoke (attach) a pit bull with a chihuahua and expect them to get around easily. One's size and strength would overpower the other, not to mention they'd both be very miserable and uncomfortable.
To be equally yoked means to be equally attached. Can the term possibly mean more than transporting animals? Can the term possibly mean more than reducing a woman to a mule, (and if she's just a mule, what does that make the man she's attached to?) Of course it does!
Being equally yoked (attached) means aligning yourself with another who complements you, makes your journey easier...(note, I didn't say easy, cause aint nobody's journey easy). Again, to loosely quote Blanc2, aligning yourself with one who allows you "to plow a straight line".
The sister who holds herself in high regard and carries herself well will do herself a favor by yoking (attaching) herself to a man who does the same. Likewise, a down and out DBR woman with the lowest of standards will most likely be right at home with a man in the same situation.

@LaSteph Ahhhhhh......LaSteph......GIRL!!!! You got me goin' over here! You named ALL the gooooood parts! Especially the forearms. There's always been something about a white guy's forearms in the summer. They catch all the sun and turn such a beautiful golden brown....mmmmmm.
I love how a man will open up to a woman if she really knows how to talk to him. I don't mean her being deceptive in any way, but just knowing how to relate to him. His hard exterior begins to soften.

@Statuesque I've been wondering the EXACT same thing myself.
