Now, if a Black man earned more than a Black woman, he would likely pay her way, but they rarely, if ever, discussed how much the man should spend and where he should take her. For every woman who complains that men are cheap, a man is complaining that women only care about getting money spent on them. Darryl James is an award-winning author of the powerful new anthology “Notes From The Edge.” James’ stage play, “Love In A Day,” opened in Los Angeles in 2011 and will become a feature film in 2012. Neither discussion does anything to improve the marriage rate. So, because someone who doesn’t know you and may not even like you doesn’t want to invest in spending money entertaining you, they should go into dating exile? I’ve used this example in discussions about dating to make the point clear to people who still have active brain cells: Our president, Barack Obama was not only low on funds when he met Michelle, but he was UNEMPLOYED!She helped him get a job and certainly didn’t chastise him about not being able to spend 0 on a date. Because she was interested in being his life partner, not some line item in his dating budget.Posted in Black America, Black Interests, Black Men, Black Men In America, Guest Columnists, Relationship Advice, The Bridge - Darryl James, Women's Interests with tags Dating, Relationships, The Bridge - Darryl James on August 5, 2012 by Gary Johnson By Darryl James How sad is it that in today’s economy, women are still complaining about how much men spend on dates? First off, dating is supposed to be a process by which two individuals get to know each other.If you already have rigid standards and expectations of people you haven’t even met, chances are things won’t go well when you do meet.For women who are on this silly program, think about this: What if the man you expect to spend a certain amount of money on a date, has expectations of getting you naked the same night? Who is to say when there are no real standards in dating anymore?
The overwhelming majority of African immigrants identify instead with their own respective ethnicities (~95%).These circumstances were changed by Reconstruction, development of the black community, participation in the great military conflicts of the United States, the elimination of racial segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement which sought political and social freedom.In 2008, Barack Obama became the first African American to be elected President of the United States.It’s just sad that so many women are complaining about where a date took them or how much he spent, but not many are conversing about what they contribute to the dating process, as if men owe them something because they want to get to know them.And we’ve all heard dead brained loser women state that men who are unwilling or unable to spend “enough” money on dates shouldn’t date.
