Top 5 Misconceptions About Black Men
5) That we are not emotional!
We are actually very emotional but we show it in primitive ways. Our “I love you” comes in various forms…more often than not, its comes NON-VERBALLY
4) That our silence means there is something wrong!
Sometimes we just wanna be still for a second. It has nothing to do with our love for you. Often times our everyday lives will test us in ways that we are not equipped to express accurately. At these times, we just need time to reflect without talking OR LISTENING!!!
3) That we cheat because we have fallen out of love!
Although it may seem foul to say, sometimes men cheat simply because we had access to another woman. One of the most natural things a man will do is seek out that which he desires. Most times the desire is temporary, or just simply trying to quench a thirst. Those men that have figured out how to abstain from cheating do not have more control than other men, they simply do not put themselves in positions where their resolve is tested. So simply put, A MAN IS ONLY AS LOYAL AS HIS OPTIONS…but indulging in another woman does not mean he does not love his own.
2) That we have to be in charge!
This is a huge misconception. A man will willingly follow a woman’s lead…IF SHE CAN TRICK HIM INTO BELIEVING THAT HE IS THE ONE LEADING! What she cannot do is lead and tell him every chance she gets that he should just fall back and let her lead. This is an uncomfortable position to put a man in because it will make him feel that he has lost his way. But cleverly disguised…a man will follow you…ALL THE WAY DOWN THE AISLE!
1) That we like fast women!
Women put too much stake into who a man is sexing. Men like playing with fast women. Some of them even like the chaos of having a fast mistress (or baby mama). But ALL MEN SEEK PEACE IN THEIR HOME. And the older we get, the more we realize that women who party all the time, and lack the traditional skills of the pre-modern homemakers…do not make good mates. So although you may see men in the streets in the faces of some of the most non-traditional women…they almost always go home to the woman who was able to provide peace and comfort in his life (no matter how fat or unattractive she may be)!
