I also had to think about something. I'm a Black man, and my sister is a Black woman. Between her and me, she has better luck in dating than me. I'm 26 and she's 22. She has had a boyfriend, and she currently has one now. She also breaks the rule of Black women not being into interracial relationships. All of her boyfriends have been White. Her current boyfriend is White. I've actually had problems with dating(never had a girlfriend).
My genuine sympathies to you I can certainly also understand and relate to what that's like, my friend (as it was not until I was about 31, when I actually had a first g/f).

I truly wish you the very best in finding love, and hope that Ms. Right and someone very special, comes into your life very soon

Is it the skin color or something else? If darker skin is "bad", the same thing doesn't seem to hurt Asians or Arabs tho Arabs are still "white".

No, I'm NOT trying to be a Troll.
This is the way I see it. I've met quite a few Black women with boyfriends, and husbands. My sister has a boyfriend right now. I will admit that there are a very high number of single Black women. It could be a number of reasons. It could very well be that some people perceive Black women in a way that isn't considered attractive, and alot of this comes from stereotypes. Another thing could be standards. I've listened to a few radio stations that dealt with Black women and dating. One thing to consider is that some women are very selective about the kind of men they are looking for, and that could be for all women.

I really wish that someone would explain the phenomenon of non-Black people (some of whom supposedly are not attracted to Black people) spend so much gosh darn time creating threads about and discussing Black people in general...and Black women specifically.

I hope so too. We can both relate to this.

As for my sister, she was considered worth something to someone. One point I was making is that many stereotypes can be debunked.

Because she is black and fine and therefore is "entitled" to have a man

I never saw her consider herself "entitled" to having a boyfriend. Someone considers her beautiful. Someone was saying "because they're self-entitled", and I just had to respond.
