I always find it funny see a fat, bald, bad dressing brother who has his mind set on dating a super model. We can get a beer belly and look like a dressed up Easter egg but let woman put a little baby weight and men are ready to trade them in.
And then you have women that want a man who is willing and able to do "traditional" women's work like cook and be involved more with the children, as well as make good money and be a "provider" but she can't boil water, got a litter of bad ass, ill mannered, undisciplined children, and no education above high school or professional career.
I guess both men/women can only see their side of things...because of experiences.
But i have issues with those that 'want' more than they 'are'.
As Sweetwuzzy mentioned.....
"Some Sisters suffer from low self-esteem. Society, relationship experts say, teaches that Black women are the lowest on the social scale--what Zora Neale Hurston calls "mules of the world." "Men have a much higher self-esteem," says Moore. "They are taught not to settle. No matter how they look or what age they are, they believe that they can get Halle Berry. Most women believe they can't get Denzel, so they take whoever is around."
.......And now what im noticing, is if a black woman is educated, buying her own home, cars, etc........and NOT taking "whoever is around", shes a bitch with an attitude.
I just dont get it........
