When I moved to the US in my late teens, one of the first things I was indoctrinated into was the idea that there is a shortage of black men. I remember a group of us black girls sitting on my college roommate’s bed as she gravely recited the stats, “42% of black women never get married because a lot of black men are in jail, and the good ones are marrying white girls. Just look at our school!” My stomach turned. Black girls greatly outnumbered black boys at my conservative, suburban college, and a good 40% of them were dating interracially.

The panic stayed with me throughout my early adulthood. I felt melancholy when the black men around me took up non-black wives and girlfriends and smugness whenever a black man tried to make a pass at me without his non-black partner noticing. I held up black male celebrities who married black women as beacons. Hope that some of ‘them’ saw the value in ‘us.’

If you were to ask me today what I think about the increasing number of black men dating and marrying interracially, you would be met with indifference.

Gap between men's and women's life expectancy no longer closing, data suggests

Have you ever wondered why your guy isn’t as excited or as overwhelmed as you are during emotional times? Here’s a glimpse as to why that is.

The way I see it is that two persons who love each other will express their feelings toward one another regardless the gender. Honestly, If your man doesn’t open up to you and share his frustrations, emotions, etc. that means that your relationship might not be that great at all. In our world now where social media is depicted as our real life, it’s easy to label yourself as happy, it’s because that’s what you always post- what you want other people to see.
So basically, men DO have feelings, you just have to build your relationship first.

With regards to the author of this article, she gave different ways to deal with your indifferent partner, that is a start when your first building your relationship. You have to build a strong foundation from there.

look Here no longer care about dating men

no sex no marriage thats what even the catholic church says

duhh

I feel like, if a guy truly and genuinely cares about you, it wont matter to him whether you re a virgin or not. His main concern during the time of intimacy (along with a whole lot of lust) will be wanting to make it pleasurable for you, and in doing so, you ll need to communicate with him and tell him what your body needs. It s a learning process really, and what s great is, even if he s not a virgin, you get to explore him too and figure out what he likes and how his body responds to your touch.

Noticed this long treatise on what Biblical Gender Roles Larry Solomon had to say about divorce in a piece titled If We Treated Divorce Like Killing. In it Larry throws shade at Desiring God patriarch John Piper, compares murder to divorce, makes some morally squishy statements about paying bride price before claiming men literally own women and that the reasons a woman can officially file for divorce are few, while the man is allowed a much longer list. Wonder if Read more

We’ve back in the trenches of the abounding bad ideas of one Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife. She’s been super busy this week sounding off the same awful idea of Larry Solomon that being a Godly Christian man and woman stops all sexual assault. Plus she’s going back to her one-note parade of stay home, keep house and homeschool your children or you’re some sort of lazy, evil, feminist. Awww, Your Poor Lonely House! Lori didn’t write this, someone Read more

This is by Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles. He’s trying his darnedest to say that having biblical gender roles and rules prevents sexual harassment and rape. Here’s his ridiculous ideas of on why. That’s it. A quick one today because I’m buried under a pile of laundry from hosting 9 guests in three different houses. The sheets alone are a crazy pile. Tomorrow more Larry lunacy  unless Lori Alexander says something crazier between now and then. Stay in touch! Read more

M en are no longer catching up with women's life expectancy, ONS data suggests, as public health campaigns have reached saturation point. 

D r George Leeson, director of the Institute for Ageing at Oxford University, said: You get something, maybe a public health campaign around smoking, which has an impact upon cardiovascular disease, they have an impact and then they reach saturation point.

It really was dramatic, but for that particular cohort of people, you can only do it once. If you're going to try to reduce the gap even more you've got to think of something else, and maybe it's physical exercise, maybe it's diet, he said.

Younger men (we're talking 25-year-olds) have no hang-ups, make you feel sexy and tell it like it is in the bedroom, say two older women who know. They reveal all to High50 's Rosanna Dickinson

The hoopla surrounding the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie got women women of all ages talking in depth about sex, possibly for the second time in their lives (after having read the book in 2011).The age gap between the film's director, Sam Taylor-Johnson aged 47, and her husband Aaron, 23 years her junior, was much to the fore too.

Such age-gap relationships have often been portrayed in a negative light. Courtney Cox's character in Cougar Town was presented as predatory, for example. For many, the older woman-younger man scenario is considered taboo, but High50 talked to two women in their fifties, both recently divorced, who've had affairs with younger men and loved it.
