Romance Novels

I am convinced that reading to many romance novels is hazardous to a female's mental health. If you read to many you will find that you will place very high expectations on any guy you meet. I am guilty of over indulgeing in Harlequin Presents romance novels. In every story the guy is dark haired,tall,very goodlooking, taned,mega rich, has a big penis and knows how to use. He may have been a playboy before he met the book's female lead but once he sets his eyes on her there are no others for him. At the end of the story they go away and live happily ever after. Now you know this is bullshit. In America if you can find a black man with a job most sisters are happy. The other stuff please, most females wish. Some men have antenna on their heads to let them know when miss big booty is in the vicinity.The two of you are having dinner and homeboy is twisting and turning in his seat trying to get a better look. There is no way you can be this guy's one and only. The man shortage in the African-American community has even led the fuugly(fucking ugly)guys to become conceited. The goodlooking ones, oh please, forget about it (to much drama).

the beast part three coming soon.

Yeah I know. Those books ruined my "formative years". So its been a bit difficult adjusting or accepting the fact that the men in those books are just FICTION

I think all these awful statistics about black men have been exaggerated by a media that wants to promote black relationships as somehow being inherently pathological. BTW, thanks for your comments on this issue in my livejournal blog - feel free to comment on my blogger site as well - I am doing a new post on black women and white men.

Man shortage, nawwww, we just need to re-adjust our expectations and be more accepting of all types of black men, I know I need to!

And romance novels, but the book down girl and walk away! Those things are wrecking many relationships!
