The dating game isn't easy on any woman. It's not a Black thing.
Columnist Nathan Hale Williams recalls lessons learned that helped him overcome the post breakup stings, and may help you too.
Finding love is understanding that what you need is often more important than what you want.
Be thankful for the friends you have but never refuse the chance to make new ones.
Marriage should last forever if it's right, but is the constant obsession to get there hurting your connection?
Surround yourself with those who support your happiness or it will be tougher to get there.
"If you say you’re about a faith that teaches forgiveness, acceptance and love then, how can you mistreat others?"
If your man's mom is too pushy, remember that it's his problem, not yours.
Don’t lose touch with those who count just because you’re in love.
It’s so easy to get focused on other things, but you have to stay committed to growing with your partner.
