Do you consider yourself fairly unlucky in the black dating scene – and are you worrying about the approaching bank holiday weekend?
It is widely believed by psychologists that depression increases during the holidays. I can imagine that it is relatively easy to fall prey to the glum that the holiday brings if you have nobody to share it with. Sure, you may have your family with you. However, nothing rivals the closeness and intimacy that only a special partner can bring to your life.
Given that the bank holiday is this weekend, it would be nice to be aware of the black dating dilemmas many singletons face. But do not worry, for every problem, there are ways on how to deal with the particular malady.
Black Dating Dilemma 1: You notice that every holiday deed seems to drag compared to the previous year when you had a steady date to share your cheer with.
True, it hurts to dwell on memories of a past love. The bank holiday atmosphere only magnifies every feeling. We all know that holiday cheer means being with your special someone, spending time with family, and reconnecting with people who matter. But being single should not drag you down. Rather, lift your chin up high and concentrate on being with close friends. Remember, when you were dating you deprived yourself of spending time with your drinking buddies and teatime friends. So bring out your telephone directory and start organizing a reunion! Brace yourself for a jolly good time!
Black Dating Dilemma 2: Family and relatives constantly ask who you are currently dating.
This dreaded question seems as if they were dabbing salt on your wounds. The best thing to do in this type of situation is to come up with a template answer. Prior to going to the family gatherings, compose a believable answer. So when your Uncle Charles starts asking who your girlfriend is now, you can retort by saying: “I am single now because I am focusing my efforts on being active in Amnesty International.” Try to think somewhere along this line. The idea is to have your relatives think that a relationship is not part of your current agenda, as you have more important priorities in life. This way you won’t start sounding like a loser.
The holidays can sometimes be a drag, but with the right outlook and with proper planning, even a non-dating individual can still manage to sneak in some fun and survive. So go out there and have fun!

Avid readers of black dating advice columns will probably be so sick of “First Black Date Dos and Don’ts”. Things such as what to do, where to go, proper etiquette, and so on.
|But what about after the date? Is there proper “behaviour” as well? These are just some frequently asked questions by “regulars” of the black dating scene.
Actually, there are indeed some “post-first date don’ts”. You know, things one should avoid once the date is over. For simplicity, we have decided to divide these into “for the gents” and “for the ladies”.
As always, ladies first:
And for the blokes:
So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Some things you may wish to keep in mind after the first date. These could spell the difference between a second date and having nothing at all. Happy black dating!
I’m a fun loving and down to earth lady. I have an edgy sense of humour and need someone who can make me laugh. I’m known to be very cheeky, so someone who can handle/match that is attractive. I can be very serious when necessary and can be very strong willed.
I love to bake and luckily for me my love of baked treats doesn’t reflect on my hips too much – slim with curves…
I do have relatively high standards but definitely not high maintenance. I just like quality in all aspects of my life.
Are you a match?
|We are all looking for black love. As singletons, we all long for that special person to share our lives with. For someone we can love and who will love us in return.|
|There are however, some people who are endlessly looking for love. People who, despite having found someone to be with, are still searching. And at the rate they’re going, will most probably never stop. It isn’t because they haven’t found the “right person”. Rather, they are “addicted” to the feeling of being in love. You know, the tingling sensation, the rush, one gets when they see their love for the first few times. Or when the relationship is new. They are constantly searching for that feeling. And nothing more.
So how will one know if he or she is dating such a person? Or worse, is one of them?
So don’t be a victim. Better yet, don’t be one yourself. We are all looking for love. And when we do find, it, let’s treasure it.
|The clutter in your home environment affects your love life, especially when looking for love. Yes, that’s right. Studies have shown that your home environment can indeed affect other areas in your life, including romance, so spring clean your home and get ahead start with black dating.|
|While this may seem like some feng shui study (which it partly is), it does have a point. Think about it. Looking for love means searching for someone new to come into your life. But how can this person enter into your life if they can’t seem to find the “front door”, in a manner of speaking. They say a person’s home is a reflection of how they live their life outside. By the same token, a person’s home is actually a big part of who they are.
So before you venture into looking for love, you may want to try and fix up the following areas:
You deserve the best, especially when looking for love on a black dating site. Before you can get the best however, you need to be at your best as well. So clean up whatever clutter there is in your home and in your life. Good luck!

|A lot of women in the black dating scene think that looks are everything. Well, okay, that looks are what attract a man the most. These women are in for an awakening—a pleasant one that is|
|While it may be true that a person on the black dating site may be attracted initially by someone’s looks, it isn’t the “be all and end all”. Sure, it’s natural since this is what he or she sees first. But it goes beyond shiny hair and pretty eyes. The fact of the matter is that when black dating, a mature, marriage-minded men want more than a pretty face. They join a black dating site because they want someone whom they can talk to, someone who will take care of them and someone who will be there no matter what just to name a few.
The problem is that most women don’t really see this side of a man. They feel that they have to lose 30 or so pounds, have a whistle-bait figure and have perfect teeth just to get into the black dating scene. Here are a few things to consider when stepping out into the black dating world:
So remember that black dating isn’t the exclusive enclave of the gorgeous and good-looking. Even ordinary people can easily find a black date. Just be yourself and practise some good old “good grooming” and you’ll be attracting the right black dates in no time.
Whether you have been using black dating sites for a while, or you’re brand new to the black dating scene, it’s important that you choose the right photo to accompany your black dating profile. It’s a fact that there’s an element of physical attraction in dating – in traditional dating where you might meet someone in a club or the supermarket it’s the physical attraction that comes first – and there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be the same when it comes to black dating online.
Writing a great black dating profile is important, but unless you’re a Booker Prize author, you’re unlikely to be able to give a better description of yourself than a photograph can. That’s why you need to add a photograph to ensure that the people viewing your profile have as much information as possible. Studies show that you are eight times more likely to get a response to your profile if you have attached a photo, and your chances increase with the quality of your photo.
You can tell a lot about a person from the type of photo they include in their black dating profile. If you include a photo of yourself doing something adventurous, like bungee jumping, you are clearly saying something about your personality – similarly if you include a professional studio shot you run the risk of people thinking you are a bit of a narcissist. Go for the safer option – a nice, clear, genuine photo.
It’s important that your picture shows you as you are now. Imagine being in contact with someone whose photograph looked great, only to find out when you meet them that at it’s at least 15 years old! It’s far more important that your photo accurately represents the person you are now.
In the digital age with most phones having great cameras there’s really no excuse for a dodgy shot. Get a friend to help you take a good photograph, remembering that the background is nearly as important as you are. Take a range of natural, smiling shots and then choose the one that you like best. You can upload it directly to your computer and add it to your profile. What’s more, you can change it – if you have your hair cut, or get contact lenses instead of glasses, for example.
Your black dating profile and your photograph are your key marketing tools as far as black dating is concerned. Take the time to get them right and watch those replies flood in!
