26/f/s...I'm an avid reader. I will read anything that peeks my interest. With that being said, I've been reading a lot of articles and blogs on African-American women being single. I've also read all of the responses and commentaries that so-called "specialists" and "experts" have shared. As someone who's question was posted and answered by one of these relationship "experts" in a popular African-American woman's magazine, I can definitely say that their opinion is not Gospel. Matter-of-fact, it should be used purely for entertainment.
But, after countless conversations with girlfriends and family members, advice read on blogs and in magazines, and just from life experiences, I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and diversify my dating portfolio. I've started to date men who don't have all of the items on my checklist. I figured "what do I have to lose?" I'm just sitting at home or out with friends...my Mr. Right could be right under my nose and I just don't know it. And if it doesn't work out then at least I was able to practice my dating skills. It's like going on an interview for a job that you didn't get. Yeah it sucks that you didn't get it, but at least you'll be closer to being on point for the next date who could turn into something more.
So...I'm using this as an outlet to share with the internet world the dates that I've been on. The couple that I'm going to post after this intro are DISASTERS! Like...they are so bad that I thought that I was on punk'd, boiling point, or hidden camera. They were just THAT bad! lol But I'm sure that there are plenty of ladies out there who can relate to some or all of my stories and I just want to let you know that you are NOT alone.
I'm convinced that if I kiss enough frogs, my prince will appear...eventually. So that's it...that's what this blog is about...dating disasters and pressing on toward The Bright Side!
Hope you enjoy!
