Online dating gives all people a chance to meet potential partners, friends and casual flings.Whatever you’re looking for and whoever you are, online dating can help you.For some reason, mainstream media has developed an obsession with Black women and our seemingly tragic lack of opportunites to jump the broom.Unless you’re without access to the internet and broadband cable, by now you’ve heard that Black marriage rates are down and that Black women are more likely to be hit by lightning than to marry (I like to call this theory “The Black Female Thunderbolt Phenomenon”).White women range from those so intrigued by black men that it veers into fetish to those so reluctant to date black men that it feels more racist than preference-driven.These are generalizations, of course, but they are attitudes that I've personally encountered.Whether you’re currently dating “outside the team” or just curious about what it’s like, we’ve got some gripes that sistas in this situation will probably understand.
Things have drastically changed with online dating however and now the problem has much more to do with the overwhelming amount of choices you do have.And let’s not forget that the statistics say that Black men aren’t buying into marriage either. That’s like Johnnie Cochran giving the State of California inside information to gain OJ Simpson’s conviction.As commitmentphobic as Black men supposedly are, I think there’s a valid reason to say that this advice dispensing could be viewed as a serious conflict of interest. Black women have told me it's because I'm a sellout.The white men who can get past the mental anguish of my black penis tarnishing "their" women think I'm making some latent admission that their race has the most attractive women.
Thick black women face their own challenges online, but the benefits definitely outweigh the negatives.
