There is lots of speculation on why black women can’t get a man. One lady wondered if her weight was her problem.
Dear Black Man,
I am thirty-four, single, and have with no children. I’m pursuing a B.A. in IT Multimedia. I have my own home and I am financially independent. While I have most everything in my life under control, I have had issues with my weight since I was 19 years old. I am about 80 pounds overweight. I’m very active and competitive when it comes to sports. I am not afraid to push myself to get what I want. I do date but I find it difficult to find a man to commit to a long-term relationship. Do you think my weight affects the way men see me as a long-term relationship?
