He supported my work and called me Butterfly; our relationship was nauseatingly blissful. I posted photos of black love on every social media account and considered myself as part of a larger revolution.

I wore Black Lives Matter buttons, attended marches, sported hoodies, vowed to date only black men, and prepared myself to raise a son who might be faced with a death in the same vein as Trayvon, a name I had spoken so often that it felt like that of a brother.

Our portrait was perfectly hung and constantly dusted for shine.

In spite of ongoing protests, the 2017-2020 White House is shaping up.

Life in the Washington Metropolitan area is getting back to a “new normal.” In the midst of all the chaos and economic unknowns, men are still dating. Chief has traveled the world twice, visited 47 countries and five continents. He maintains his daily workout regime and has an active social life.

Each age group has its concerns, and we took the time to review each of them. While he may be listening to jazz, she is more interested in the latest hip-hop release. Caring for one another while caring for children and aging parents.

Younger women (aged 28-35): Does he want to be a Manther; an older man that preys on younger women? Chief is active, the idea of dating younger women is appealing because of their youthfulness. He is more bit settled being a divorced father of two that has completed one career and embarking on a second. Chief doesn’t want any more children, he is willing to be a bonus Dad. Living a balanced lifestyle with physical and financial health; i.e. More compromising and a fifty-fifty arrangement as much as possible. The familiar pattern is the women wanted either a committed relationship or they didn’t. Both of them set in their ways and negotiating happy mediums.The priority is typically companionship; travel partner, sounding board, and confidante when it comes to caring for elderly parents or enjoying grandchildren.Enjoying the fruits of their labor and their sunset years.On the other hand, some of the older women he dated only wanted a maintenance man or sex on demand.Which doesn’t sound like a problem until he realized he wanted more.; commitment, partnership, etc.I remember being 6 and slapping my white uncle in the face to figure out why his face turned bloodred.
