    Black Relationships : Platonic Friendships...hummm?

    This same thread has been up before/same question asked years ago. As for me, I've got four very close platonic friends, and used to have a fifth.

    Black Relationships : Your Definition of SEX APPEAL

    In order to answer the question, I think of the most physically appealing (or sexiest) men I've known. There are a few things they all have in common. 1.

    Black Relationships : Biggest Issues in Black relationships

    I sincerely hope that is true. None of us is above or below the next person, though there may be some trait we see in someone of the opposite sex, which we perceive as superior. For example, some men look for the most subjectively physically attractive mate they can find. Yet, they are not the...

    Black Relationships : Biggest Issues in Black relationships

    Reunion There have been some excellent points made here, and I think if brothers sincerely seek an understanding of women and how they choose men, they would be wise to heed the words of Riada and Sanaiah25, as well as jgyknowledge (flashy men win the flashy women that the non-flashy men...
