Black and African-American Quotes

The problem with a lot of us in relationship is that we don’t want to face the truth. We hope for the best. We hope that maybe this will be the one, but there are signs there that he isn’t the one. We try to hang on anyway.

You know, when you’re single, you’re very independent. Very independent women raised me. We didn’t have a lot of male figures as the head of our household, so I got, and took on, a lot of that strong spirit from the matriarchs in my family. It allows you to get on through life a lot easier, but the downside is that you don’t have that experience of watching a male figure interact with women in the home. When you come from an all-female household, when you’re in a relationship, you get into situations you don’t really know how to handle, which I didn’t.
