Why so many Black women are single...
I,like many others, am sick of hearing people discuss why they think the majority of Black women are single. The video above is of rapper, Nelly chiming in on why he thinks many women are single. He makes a great point when he states that some women pass on good guys because they don't look like "the perfect guy." I'm guilty of this. For example, I have sworn off short guys. Imagine that! I'm only 5'3 and I have the nerve to be picky about height. A friend and I were discussing this recently and she has a long list of deal breakers. She has been single for a while might I add. On the other hand, I know plenty of women who are no where close to getting married, but engage in aimless activities with subpar men for the sake of not being alone. I don't know about you, but I'd much rather be single.
Anyway, the purpose of this post is to ask you a question. Do you think many women are too picky? Should we have to settle for the men that are available as opposed to waiting for "Mr.Right" when we're not even sure he exists? I'm totally stumped when it comes to this topic so what are your thoughts?
