I realize that some do not consider one’s spirituality when dating.   If you are planning on having a future with your partner, this is a topic that is worth a discussion. What if you have children?

Posted by admin under Dating  •  No Comments

I find that black men are more willing to date outside their race. Yet, I come across black women that have not considered it.

Posted by admin under Dating, Sex  •  No Comments

I know it is the new millennium and women are more in touch with our sexuality. But I am curious to know how men really think about a woman giving it up soon after they meet? Can giving it up too soon result in a failed relationship? Would you respect her? Would you want to form a serious relationship with her? Or do you look at her as easy ass?
