Fellas, I would like to ask you a few questions that may be a bit personal. This thread is meant to offer us men a chance to express their core beliefs regarding women and to offer the ladies a chance to inquire about those beliefs to be enlightened and a bit more empowered to be better partners in black relationships. All I ask is that the dialogue is honest, respectful, and as loving as possible. I think we can all agree that we all want black love to be better and held in higher regard. Here we go. 1 - Name three qualities that a woman must possess if he is interested in dating you and why those qualities are important to you. 2 - What three qualities in a woman would cause you to reject the idea of dating him? 3 - Name three important things you expect to happen in a relationship (marital hopes not included) and why they are important. 4 - Name two ways you can tell a woman is a real woman and how those two things tie into your belief of what a real woman is. 5 - What is your belief about relationships and money? Where did you learn that belief? 6 - What is your belief about sex in relationships? Where did you learn that belief? 7 - What is your idea of a good relationship? Where did you learn that idea? 8 - What is your idea of a good marriage? Where did you learn that idea? 9 - Under what conditions in a relationship would you expect marriage to become an upcoming reality? 10 - What two negative traits would you consider overlooking for the outweighing positive traits or working with a sista to overcome? Why? 11 - What two negative traits do you possess that you want a woman to be able to acept or work with you to overcome? Why? Finally... 12 - Name two things a woman can do in a relationship and in a marriage to make you feel completely secure in them.
