Re: What Are Women Really Attracted To?

folobatuyi ·
Personally, I believe there is some truth to this...especially the part where the author advised men to "never listen to what a woman says -- always pay attention to what she actually does instead." I would modify that to say that as a guy, one should not only hear or listen to what a woman says but also observe and keep note on what she does...much more telling and true. As to the role of money and the need for sex as items of attraction women see in men...both are factors but I think it is...

* I have no problems with reality {I actually prefer it to the self-boosting misinformation often floating about the Black community}, so long as those women acknowledge that they chose to date those guys all by themselves [cherry picked]. It was her choice to date/pursue Joe Thug and Ray-ray and thus it was her 'fault' when they let her down. If you sleep with dogs, you just might wake up with fleas and puppies!!! She also can't blame 'sane' black men that didn't appeal to her 'Ray-Ray'...

I would conclude that many young black women make very poor dating choices early in their dating lives. It seems, like Dr Audrey Chapman*******[link below with highlighted quote] has concluded, that many black women are looking to be a savior in their quest to attempt to try to change a bad boy into a good man..as oppose to starting out with a good man and building from there. She [Dr. Chapman]feels that black women would like to feel that their love can change people...only later to...

Just like "Samuel Alito" probably originally had some more Italian-sounding name, and he probably became an arch-conservative to appeal to the Anglo-Saxxon crowd so they would forget about his "Italian-ness". Alot of non-Anglo-Saxxon Whites are more outwardly and openly racist (as well as status-quo protecting) to impress their Anglo peers and "get in good" with them.

By Sunnubian I am not sure where you practice law, but in NJ, child support is calculated based on both incomes, thereafter, the non-custodial parent, pays in cash or check directly to the cusotidal parent or to the child support office[in NJ it is called the Probation Department], who converts the cash into a check that is either deposited directly into the custodial parent's account or mailed to him or her. The Custodial Parent has the discretion to spend the money as he or she see fit.

Re: White Collar Gals Loving Blue Collar Guys

I think this is true...but as the attraction is based partly on primal sexual urges, the problem arises when (or does it?) reality sets in down the road as the sexual appeal wanes, the bills come in, and the couple involved realize they are quite incompatible outside the bedroom. It is ok if gals or guys want to act out their basic urges as long as the parties involved are cognizant of what they are getting into.
