Re: Exploring a Stereotype

I don't disagree with you here, but I believe it's situational. There are many white women with exactly the same mind set, justified or not. I think that aggressiveness has its place, but like most things it should be used in moderation. The only area where a women doesn't need to utilize moderation is in her positive feminine attrtibutes: Flexibility, Giving, and Integrity. A lady can never be to flexible, to giving, or have to much integrity. So long as she is getting what she needs from...

Im not too sure, what white women go through on a daily basis.....i can only assume. But being a black woman, i fight everyday. When you continue to fight at every turn.........you become aggressive, to maintain or achieve in life. The key for me was to learn how not to be aggressive.....when there was no need.

Well put. I can see where your comming from. What I ment about the white women with that mind set is that they can be fighting every day just like you, even if they don't need to. I know as well as anyone when your fighting every day, being a warrior can easily go from being a hobby, to being a habbit, to being a lifestyle.

That's the reality. Familiarity breeds boredom, resentment, and then contempt. Stay a mystery so they have to keep chasing you. A wise man once said, "If she's chasing after you, she can't be getting rid of you". I agree with what everyone has said about the "friend zone", but there's one aspect that hasn't been covered. Yes, you do want do be good friends with your lover, but they have to fall in love first . The romance can fade when you become friends, that's why it requires maintainence.
