In 2005, Tyler Perry’s  film titled “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” attempted to shed light on possible reasons why African American females are “angry” in regards to love and relationships. Four years later, Tim Alexander filmed a narrative/documentary titled “Diary of a Tired Black Man” that displayed video footage of conversations with minority (primarily African American) men and women regarding love and relationships. Majority of the males concluded black women’s bad attitude is the demise of their love-life. Three years after the release of “Diary of a Tired Black Man”, I question whether or not there is a “Bitter Black Man” syndrome emerging on the dating and relationship scenes. A lot of our black male visitors on www.blacklikemoi.com and www.yourblackworld.com have been very vocal in expressing disgust and/or disappointment in their quests to find a “good” woman. So, I’m opening the floor for dialogue on this topic.

Here are some questions I have for black men who are losing hope in finding their queen:

1) What qualities are you seeking in a “good” woman?

2) Do you feel compelled to date outside of your race to find a “good” woman?

3) What frustrates you the most about dating?
