I am not posting this as a ploy to meet new men to date. (If that happens, cool, but thats not my intention!) I am posting this story because I hear so many men complain about women for various reasons-mainly because of baggage they bring to relationships. Brothers, I want you to know that there are sistas out there who have experienced all sorts of pain and sorrow and are still open to love.
Don't Take It Personal
Sister TOAOM, first I want to welcome you to the forum, and thank you for sharing such a detailed and personalized story with us. I'm sure it must have been a great relief to unload these feelings and put them into writing; however, I would not take personally any of the topics being posted. Many of the threads that are being posted by various members are created only to inspire conversation, not to personally attack women or men, or to personally attack people individually. Brother Raheem, in particular, is well-known for posting controversial topics and provocative photos for the express purpose of inciting people's interests and to get people talking, and that's it. I just wanted to share this with you, because it reads as if might be a little overwhelmed by the mood that's been established over here, which admittedly, can be a little glum (and combative) at times. Unfortunately, we have our share of pity parties over here.
