Yesterday we had a healthy discussion about Neenah, the woman who created the site 52weeks2findhim.com in an attempt to find her future husband in a year. Some readers felt like creating a website to find a husband is a bit drastic and maybe a little desperate. However other readers were able to relate to the dating frustrations that Neenah must have faced which caused her to create her website. Neenah is an educated woman of color and she is clearly part of the 42.2%. The fictional movie "Something New" starring Sanaa Lathan, highlighted a real statistic, the fact that 42.2% of black women have yet to be married. This percentage generally impacts the lives of black women who have degrees from institutions of higher learning. Think of the black woman with the great job, great education and no husband and there you have a member of the 42.2% crowd. As you get older some women think that it is less likely that they will find a husband to grow old with, so what is a lady to do? This is probably why women are turning to alternative means of finding love because the dashing gentleman riding his white horse is not easily found.
The beautiful blogger Tami mentioned in the comment section that she too has tried different methods of meeting eligible bachelors but like Neenah she has not found the ONE. I know a really charismatic, sweet, ambitious well educated woman who is about to turn 50. She has been single her entire life and she would really appreciate it if Mr. Right would stroll into her life. I should state though, that she doesn’t just sit back, she is pretty social and very friendly so she is always trying to meet a potential love interest. She looks great and really keeps herself together, yet she is as single as they come. WHY WHY WHY????
Although many of us may be in our 20's now if you are well educated and successful in your careers, it is likely that you may become a part of the 42.2%. While we bask in out 20's now, 60 will roll around sooner than we may think. How many of us will still be single at that point? If you are single when we hit your 30's, 40's or 50's would you break out of your comfort zone and explore alternative methods of finding the ONE?
Winning the Battle
B and Justme are just two bloggers who had fitness, health and well being on their minds this week. I recently stumbled upon a youtube video created by BeautifulBrwnBabyDol who lost roughly 80 pounds and she is looking great. She has some videos showcasing what she eats, motivational videos and even videos on exercise so check her out when you have a moment. Below you will find her picture filled video of her dramatic weight loss transformation.
Bee Mine Challenge Week -1 results
If you recall I said I would do a BeeMine hair growth challenge to see if the product really works when it comes to making my hair grow faster. When the entire process is done I will create a video or maybe I will do a different video for each week (not sure yet). At any rate here is a quick mini preview ( I ran out of time to make a real video for today) with a pic of two sides of my head, one with a beemine treatment adn the other without.
Which side looks like it has more new growth? After you make your decision scroll down for the answer......
Now here is exhibit B
And the answer is::::::::::::
The first picture, A, is of the area that received the BeeMine treatment while picture B is the section not receiving the treatment. Personally I think the side with no treatment has more hair that looks like new growth...wierd huh? Did you guess correctly?
Well that was just the first week and there is more to come so stay turned to see how this all plays out.
Have a great weekend everyone!
