Although There are a lot of singles in the black community, with 70% of our women single and blacks only make up 11-12% of America’s population, we must take into consideration that good men may be passed up for fantasy ideals. Let us look in the church. I mean, although I am not a single brother, I look at other dudes and I ask myself, why are they not married or at least in the talks of getting engaged? I found the guts to ask several gentlemen and believe or not, they all had something in common…they are ordinary men and women are not into that these days.
Off the bat, men convey that women they encounter want them to make a six figure salary, articulate in their speech, off on weekends, romantic, and knows how to cook. This indeed is awesome but not realistic. If you are a Christian single, know that your personal preferences do matter when picking a mate, however, God ultimately knows and has someone for you. Sometimes, I believe God does not allow single folk to meet the spouse He has for them because they may ruin it due to superficiality. The above video is a good example.
IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN: YOUR MAIN QUALIFIER IS THAT PERSON IS ALSO A CHRISTIAN AND SHOWS FRUIT TO PROVE IT! DO NOT LOWER YOUR STANDARDS!
2 Corinthians 6:14King James Version (KJV)
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
